Mix things up with ROMWE

How beautiful is it outside lately! If you don’t live in my area I’ll go ahead and tell you – It’s fantastic! Spring is in full bloom and I’m loving it. I have such a love for Springtime (check out why I love Spring here). Lately, I’ve been experimenting with different wardrobe textures, colors, and looks. I love to mix lux and more affordable pieces into my daily work looks. Some of the most simple yet polished outfits can be made by pairing a simple wardrobe piece with a lux item. For this look, I paired this cardi with a…

Meet Ms. Pompadour!

I love having long hair and I love how confident and feminine I feel when my hair looks great. When I’m having a great hair day, I feel like I can take over the world. Nothing beats feeling confident. I’ve been growing my hair out over the last couple of years and it’s finally the length I love. I have one hair goal – keep it healthy. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, great hair requires great products. I recently had the opportunity of trying some great new hair products that are set to launch at the…

Brands Who Give Back

Pay it forward and give back. We hear this all the time but do we act on what we hear? I know I can work on giving back. I always have good intentions but I need to put those intentions into motion. I’ve been looking into brands that give back to charities. I know personally and professionally giving back and paying forward is different but it feels good to support a brand who cares about other people. For this post, I’ve put together some unique accessory and beauty brands who care and give back to some great causes. Hand in…

How to Start a WordPress.org Blog

A pretty frequent conversation I have is about why I blog and how to start a blog. Whenever I talk to another woman about blogging I encourage them to blog! Blogging is an excellent way to connect with other creatives and express yourself. Everyone I talk with is always nervous about how to setup their blog. No need to be nervous! Setting up a blog isn’t really that hard at all. I’ve put together a quick and easy FAQ to get your WordPress.org blog setup! If you have questions, please email me. I’d love to help! Should I use WordPress…

D’OR24K and 24K Gold Skincare

Skincare, skincare, skincare – I talk about it all the time. Why? Because taking care of your skin is important! The older I get, the more I realize why when I was young, people said – don’t tan. I tanned, shhh don’t tell anyone. The good news, I haven’t purposely worked on a tan in years and I’m as pale as nature intended me to be. I’m all about embracing and loving the pale! I want my skin to feel good and look healthy for as long as I can. So here we go with another peak into what’s happening…

The Benefits of Blogging

What are the benefits of blogging? Is there a benefit to blogging? Definitely! What that benefit is will vary from blogger to blogger. For me, the benefit is personal. I can’t say I started blogging because I’m extremely passionate about fashion or style. I enjoy fashion and style, but the two topics aren’t my main motivators. I started blogging for two basic foundation reasons. I enjoy writing about various topics including fashion and style I want to push my personal comfort zones through expressing my life experiences A love of Writing I love writing in general, I’ve had a love…

Spring Style with Jane

Spring has arrived and I’ve been wearing tons of colors. I can’t help it though, I always love simple and polished looks I can wear on Monday or Saturday (previous looks here and here). My eyes are always drawn to pieces that will last awhile. I don’t typically hop onboard trends. Sometimes it happens though. Occasionally, I spot a trend and I’m like oh yeah, gotta try that. Those are my exact thoughts about loafers and slides.  I’ve always loved loafers, it must be something about my love of vintage style. Probably because I love to create looks that are…

Healthy Ice Cream Alternatives

How is it that I’ve never mentioned food on the blog before? Well I say it’s time we get started! I try to keep my diet as clean as possible. By clean as possible I mean, I try not overdose on sugar daily. I love sweet treats so much though! The reality is, the older I get the more I realize I can’t live on junk. My body feels like garbage when I don’t fuel it properly. Giving up sweets doesn’t have to be boring. I love finding ways to create healthier options to satisfy my sweet tooth. I recently…

What Does it Mean to be an Influencer?

One of the things I’ve enjoyed most about blogging is how much I’ve learned along the way. I have an ongoing interest in social media from a business perspective. I’m fascinated with the power of social media and branding. Blogging has opened my mind and expanded my knowledge base in the areas of social media and branding tremendously. Blogging is not superficial, though it often has that reputation. There are many areas of social media and branding I could passionately write about but for the sake of length, I’m picking one. I’m discussing what it means to be an  –…

April Drugstore Beauty Picks

Many of my favorite makeup and hair products are conveniently available in familiar drugstores. For this post, I thought it would be fun to put together some of my current favorite drugstore beauty products. These are products I’ve recently tried and some I’ve used for quite awhile.

Rethink the Plain White Shirt

No secret here, I love simple, sleek, and polished looks. Some of my favorite simple looks involve white shirts. Plain white shirts are a closet necessity of mine. I love a great white shirt! Lately, I’ve been wearing white shirts a bit much (no shame). White shirts don’t always have to be considered plain though. It’s time to rethink the plain white shirt. Spice up the basics! I love this white shirt because it’s a great twist on a basic piece. I love the split tuxedo tail and large front pockets. This shirt can be worn both professional and casually.…

The Benefits of Body Brushing

Body brushing has been recommended to me multiple times but I didn’t listen. I didn’t think something as simple as dry brushing my skin would produce results. I was very wrong. I started body brushing a few months ago and the results have all been positive. Overall, my skin feels refreshed. I’ve seen an improvement in the smoothness, hydration, and firmness of my skin. I’ve also seen a reduced appearance of cellulite on my legs since beginning body brushing. What is Body Brushing? Trust me, this will be the easiest part of your skincare routine. Body brushing is a process…

Skin care updates and tips

I recently received some great products c/o of Nib+Fab. I’m excited to feature Nib+Fab for the first time on the blog. I previously featured an awesome eye palette from their sister company, Rodial and I loved it! I’ve had the opportunity to feature some awesome products on the blog over the past several months. Many of the products have been from women empowered businesses which brings a huge smile to my face. I love working with women who made a dream a reality! I get excited for them! With each product I’ve tried, I’m learning more and more about what…

Live Online Auction Shopping with Tophatter

If you know me you know I love a good resale deal! For me, there is a thrill to the hunt for a deal. Even if I don’t have a specific product in mind I still enjoy browsing resale sites. You never know what treasure you may find. I’m usually looking for vintage or unique items. I’m always browsing popular resale sites such as EBay, ThredUP, Poshmark, and Etsy. I’ve found and sold some neat items over the years. For this post I’m introducing you to the newest site I’ve been browsing. Meet Tophatter! I discovered Tophatter a few years…

Get Colorful with Real Purity!

Spring is coming and I can feel color being added back into my life. I love it! I don’t know how you feel but I’m ready for the changing spring colors and warmer weather. For me, Spring always feels like a fresh new start (previous post here). I’m enjoying lightening up my daily looks and adding new colors into my beauty routines. Especially pinks and rosy hues. I always find my eye drawn to pink tones. Today, I want to share my newest beauty love (or should I say loves) with you. Meet Real Purity! Real Purity is a natural…
