Hi, I’m Sydney!

I am a 26 year old SoCal native, currently living in the San Francisco Bay Area. I have a full time office job working in HR for a large tech company, but started my blog,, as a creative outlet and a way to apply my love for fashion + food to something constructive and fun. I'm married to a wonderful man and we're expecting our first child in February--Hello mommy blogger life! (@sydney_burden)


Your friends come to you for:

All the bargain hunting tips! I'm kind of a master at finding great, trendy dupes of expensive pieces and making them look high-end! Also, I make a mean cocktail, so that makes me pretty popular too lol.


What is the last item you purchased?

As you can imagine, I am a full-blown shopaholic so I've made a ton of purchases lately (sorry hubby)...but I guess one of my absolute faves as of late has been this fabulous pair of Marc Fischer OTK Boots. I'm a total bargain shopper so of course, I got them on sale at DSW, but I'm so obsessed! They're the perfect heal height and are super flattering with pretty much any outfit. Love them with dresses, leggings, jeans, etc.--So functional and so cute! Definitely a closet staple!

What’s next on your shopping list?

Ugh, there are so many things I'm dying for to be honest but one thing I feel like I NEED is a pair of chunky studded ankle booties—Can you tell I'm totally shoe obsessed? Ive been seeing them all over IG lately and I feel like they're just super on-trend right now. Like I said, NEED!

What’s your shopping superpower? A trick that your friends envy?

Like I mentioned before, I am the QUEEN of bargain shopping. If I see something I want but it's a little out of my price range, you better believe I will find a fantastic dupe for a fraction of the price--Always (proudly + shamelessly) doin' it for the deals!


Who is your N.1 blogger you’d like to see on Countr?

I have SO many bloggers/influencers that I follow + love but I've gotta give this one to my girl, Sivan Ayla. She's one of the first bloggers I followed when I first entered the industry and I'm just obsessed with her style and unfiltered voice. She's hilarious and adorable!
