She goes through the same trials we do growing up, wondering if we are good enough, if someone is going to fight for us, if we will ever find someone to love us the way we want. She is betrayed by her boyfriend, twice, she is hurt like we all have been but she builds her multi-million dollar company from a broken heart. Eventually she learns her worth and stands up for what she deserves. GUESS WHO?!

 

 

 

So I have a little secret about myself… ok maybe not a secret pursue but I often indulge myself in girly RomComs to make myself feel better about whatever I am going through. I do it with books too but mostly TV. Some of my faves are One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and Sex and the City. While I feel I can relate to parts of Blair Waldorf and Carrie Bradshaw there are also pieces of their personalities I just can't get on board with. Blair is evil and while it's great for TV it's just not who I am. And Carrie, well she makes some horrible fashion and life decisions and kind of seems a little desperado sometimes which is just not me. So, the moment you have been waiting for… who are my 3 strong women who I relate to most?!

Brooke Davis- One Tree Hill

  1. She goes through the same trials we do growing up, wondering if we are good enough, if someone is going to fight for us, if we will ever find someone to love us the way we want. She is betrayed by her boyfriend, twice, she is hurt like we all have been but she builds her multi-million dollar company from a broken heart. Eventually she learns her worth and stands up for what she deserves.

  2. Enter Clothes Over Bros. She builds her company in high school, grows it beyond her wildest dreams and never loses sight of who she is. She moves back to Tree Hill away from the glitz and glam to live a normal 20 something life with her best friends. She is super successful but then losesit all and even though there are times she questions herself she never gives up.

  3. She never lets silly things come between her friends. Even though Peyton went behind her back with Lucas, twice, and they parted ways for a bit, they never lose sight of what's important; their friendship. She always puts her friends first; loyal as hell, and says it like it is… mine kinda girl! She doesn't sugar coat things but never says anything to hurt you (unless you deserve it). She's always by Peyton and Hayley side. It takes a long time for her to let people in, but once she does, she is in it for the long haul.

  4. She holds out for the man she deserves and makes him fight like hell. This is what I learned most from Brooke. She was constantly hurt and a second thought. She dated men who were not man enough for her and were too afraid of her strength and independence. Julian came along and she pushed him away (I think only to see how hard he would fight). Like I said she made him fight. She chose Sam (her foster child and her home) over being with him, and when she felt like she was coming 2nd to Alex she cut Julian loose until he proved her wrong and she felt like she could trust him. She finally got the love and life she waited for and she did not settle for anything less. That's why Brooke Davis is my spirit animal.

 

Olivia Pope- Scandal

  1. Olivia doesn't put up with bullshit. She knows who she is and owns her power. She makes mistakes and owns those too. Those mistakes never made her feel like she deserves less than the best. She is fine being alone and will never settle for mediocracy. She knows her worth and her value and adds for tax and shipping.

  2. She is a badass boss babe. She runs her own company and can handle anything that comes her way. She holds her head high with dignity and grace and never runs from problems. She faces them head on, deals with it then cleans up the mess. She moves on like it never happened. She doesn't let her personal life affect her business. She is a fighter and a warrior. She survives more than anyone could imagine and does it fearlessly.

  3. She fights for love but she doesn't give up herself for it. She has an affair with the president, but doesn't settle for 2nd best. She doesn't give up her life or business to be with him but instead decides she will choose herself first and if they are meant to be timing will handle that. She loves without apologizing. She knows stolen moments aren't a life so she moves on until perfect timing brings them together. She doesn't dwell on the hurt or not having the person she loves by her side, instead she rocks her business and first handedly saves the presidency. She befriends the Mellie, and helps her become a kick ass president. They share some pretty great drunken girl moments, she chooses friendship over love.

 

Queen Elsa- Frozen

I can sum up my correlation to Elsa in a few short sentences. She doesn't let anyone in, she pushes people away and is fearful. She doesn't feel just pushes it deep inside. Then she realizes her capabilities, lets the past go and moves forward opening her heart and life to those who truly love her. She lets go of perfectionism and lets her true-self shine. She is the true definition of a queen.

XO, Cheers!

Dear Jenn,

The braces will come off and you will look less awkward in high school; but life is not all about looks doll. Stop being a shallow ice queen and see people for who they really are. Because one day you will be in love with him back, and it will be too late. Save your virginity for someone who you actually give a damn about. I know you think you love that boy, but you don't. Don't get those tattoos, they are not cute at 33. You're not fat. Your parents will stop fighting at Christmas eventually and then Christmas time will make you sublimely happy. You and Brittany will be best friends, so stop being such a bitch to her she doesn't deserve it! Let yourself love. I know you're afraid of getting hurt but it's a part of life and in the storm is where God makes you fight the hardest and changes who you are for the better.

Speaking of God, stop being embarrassed about church, I know you go to satisfy mom but God is the only way you will survive everything you will have to go through in the future. Learn to love the Bible, it's ways and teachings. And also, let go of control and let God lead the way, He has better plans than what you are even imagining.

Worrying changes nothing, go through the panic attacks, breathe and then focus your attention on something else, it will pass. Every struggle is a step forward. There will be a lot of ups and a lot of downs, Dad will come to the rescue more than you want but that is what he is there for.

Don't go to school to be a teacher, it is a waste of money and time. Along with that, don't go to Cabrini College; there was no lesson that came from this, just don't go. You will find a career that earns way more money than a teacher ever would. I know you dream of writing for Vogue and it's a great dream, but be realistic. There will be a crash in 2008, don't move to Hoboken, Anna Wintour is not going to hire you. It's not that easy and it's a lot of work, and you will fulfill your dream in other ways but it will not be over night. Learn patience, it's a virtue you don't have.

Don't stress and cry over men, it's worthless. Let them go. AND STOP TRYING TO SAVE THEM! Their issues are not yours! It's their shitty marriage, not yours! Stay away from that area completely. Just know, what's meant to be will be. God has a plan and you just have to trust it. Being a wife and a mom may not be in the cards for you, but you will be ok with it and your purpose on this earth is for something else!

You're a spender, start saving now. You will always like nice things, but, you will always be independent enough to take care of yourself and get some pretty nice things too! Don't buy trends, and keep the same car for longer than 3 years unless you want to lease.

Laugh at the mess. Cry when you need to cry, but wake up choosing to be happy. Go through the lessons and learn them, don't keep repeating the same mistakes over and over again. Travel much. Enjoy the simple things. Hold on to great friends and toss the crappy ones. Always speak your mind (you always do a good job with that!). Don't stop writing. Don't stop being creative. Don't stop learning. Don't look for love, but let it find you. Go after all your dreams, anything and everything is possible. Let God be the leader of your whole life.

Day after day it gets exhausting worrying about what I am eating and drinking and if it's going to make me gain 3-5 lbs. Being in the blogger world it's very difficult not to compare yourself to the other girls who are naturally thin and tall. I am certainly not tall, and not as skinny as most of the bloggers out there. I am 5'2", 125 lbs and a size 4 and ya know what, I am A-ok with it. Dieting and hardcore working out is just not my forte. It's not something I really enjoy. I do like to run, that is a basis of workouts honestly. I hate lifting weights, super boring, not for me. And I make any excuse I can not to do it.

Dieting and hardcore working out is just not my forte. It's not something I really enjoy. I do like to run, that is a basis of workouts honestly. I hate lifting weights, super boring, not for me. And I make any excuse I can not to do it.

Don't get me wrong, naturally I like to eat healthy. Generally I eat the same thing, chicken, turkey, veggies, brown rice etc. However, I love sweets and I love wine and I do not and will not give them up. I do consume them in moderation but here's the deal. We are only here for a short period of time, I am not going to say no to that once in a blue hot chocolate or a handful of peanut M&M's if they are going to make me happy.

I do not believe in the keto diet, because to keep that figure is a lifelong choice. As soon as you eat one carb or an ounce of sugar it will go right back on. It's not a healthy way of living. I am however, a firm believer in eating healthy, portion control and most importantly SELF-CONTROL. I am a control freak so I will never sit at home and consume a whole bag of chocolate. I used to down a bottle a wine but I have learned to control that as well for the most part, unless it's a night out.

I am stressed out enough with work, blogging and life in general I don't want to stress out about the tire around my stomach, or the fat patch under my non-so-much-there booty. I take care of myself for the most part, I probably could step it up a notch and I will but my point in this is that everyone has imperfections. I used to hate my cellulite, and I don't really have that much just a little on my thighs but then I saw a picture of Serena Williams who's rear and thighs are covered in cellulite and she is one of the best athletes to ever walk the planet. It's a natural thing, either you have it or you don't.

If you are one of the lucky ones to have a bod like Jennifer Aniston or the lifestyle like JLo (No caffeine, sugar or alcohol - no thanks) good for you, but it's not my choice. I like wine and I like sugar and I like indulging once in a while and if that means being an extra 5-10 lbs heavier so be it.

I know a lot of people who are solely focused on their weight and the struggle to lose it. I can tell you this, my sister was 140 lbs and 5'2". She did crossfit and worked out like a mad woman. She was toned but lost 0 weight. She did not build a butt or get skinny arms, how she lost the weight was by eating right. Not cutting carbs or sugars or any of the good stuff, by macros balanced eating. It's not so hard to do honestly. You just have to stay under a certain amount of carbs, fat and protein. She is now 105 lbs (she needs to gain some weight now lol); but she just does some yoga, and cardio and the occasional spinning class. She busted her butt, no pun intended, and it didn't pay off. Everyone's body type is different but the bottom line is, if you are confident with what you have screw it. I have flaws but I also have parts of me that I love, my eyes, my chest, and the front of my thighs so those are the parts of my I show off. I'm not ashamed of the other parts like my chubby arms, my stomach that is not flat at all, or my butt that is non-existent; it is what it is. I am not Kim Kardashian and frankly I don't want to be. We are always going to find things that we don't like, so my new goal is to focus on things I do like and embrace the parts of me I don't. I am lucky to have strong arms and I am lucky to be healthy enough to have weight on me.

Ladies, stop stressing out about your weight, it's a waste of time and energy that you could be focusing elsewhere like on your beautiful family, experiences and the simple things in life. Eat the cake. Drink the wine.  Have the M&M's it's not going to kill you or add a dimple to your butt! Embrace and love who you are!

CHILL OUT!!! IT'S THE HOLIDAYS ENJOY THEM!!!

I have really learned my worth and what makes me feel good and what does not. And if it does not feel right, or feed my soul it has to go. They have to go. So if there is someone lingering around your heart decide if they are giving any positive purpose to your life or just taking up space like those clothes in your closet. They fit at one point, but now they just don't feel right anymore and are totally out of style. TOSS!!!!

In life, we all go through seasons; emotionally and physically. There are times where the storms are more than we think we can handle and we have no clue how we will get out alive. Seasons where the sun shines bright everyday and we are able to stand back and appreciate all we have. And for just one moment everything is perfect. And there are seasons when it is time to declutter! Cleaning and gutting out excess can help us in our homes and our lives.

As I mentioned previously, I have been shifting to a more quality vs quantity way of thinking in more ways than one. I cleaned out my closet by giving two trash bags of clothing and shoes to my younger cousin, Hanna. I took items that I know I would not wear because I haven't in over a year and didn't think twice about tossing it. Somedays I think oh no how can I part with this and others I am cut-throat and decisive. That day I was relentless in trying to clear out my closet. And ya know what, I still feel like there are lingering items that probably need to go. I will get there.

Like my closet, I am trying to declutter my mind by focusing on my plans and goals for the future in a more precise and planned manner. We are all know we can make plans and then we hear God laugh (thank you Thomas Rhett for that lyric). But we try to create goals to help lead us to where we want to be. One thing I am certain is that we should never stop growing or learning. The best way to do this, is to stop and evaluate your why. Why you are doing what you are doing and what purpose do you want it to bring to your life and the life of others? For me, my why, is to share my life experiences with others to motivate them to feel beautiful and powerful inside and out. We are all in this together.

As for this heart, well that's a big old hot mess but I am working on it. Like the lingering items in my closet I still have those who linger in my heart but need to go, for good. I do believe this year, and what I have gone through with heartache and my anxiety I have really learned my worth and what makes me feel good and what does not. And if it does not feel right, or feed my soul it has to go. They have to go. So if there is someone lingering around your heart decide if they are giving any positive purpose to your life or just taking up space like those clothes in your closet. They fit at one point, but now they just don't fit right and are totally out of style. TOSS!!!!

Shopping on a budget get can be difficult especially if you follow bloggers who are constantly buying the newest clothes and products. I never pay full price for anything unless it is something I sincerely cannot live without. Guess what? It does go on sale! So unless it's something you are shopping for like an event, I would wait it out.

Nordstrom

As stated previously, I started shopping more at Nordstrom. I used to be a Macy's girl but their clothing has went down hill unfortunately. I did get a Nordstrom store card so I could shop the N sale early access in July.

What I learned from the N Sale:

1. Go early! I got the early access and went at like noon the day it opened and there were still things I could not get because they were already out of my size. 

2. Buy staples like tees, tanks, denims, sweaters, booties. The tees were like $9-14 down from $17-25. The sweaters were down to $25 frpm $45. I didn't buy any jeans because I have too many but those sales were great too. 

3. Keep an eye online because people return things and they will add it. There is still one tank I am waiting to get restocked in my size. 

OK so I still shop Nordstrom because they have sales constantly. I still have not bought anything full price and if you have a card for every $1 spent you get point and get "notes". So I just got a $20 "note" and I bought the MAC foundation I have wanted and had to pay $12. They always have free shipping too.

Amazon

I constantly buy clothing on Amazon. A lot of times if I see something that is just not what I want to pay I will look for dupes on Amazon. Now they have a new program where you can order clothes and try them on before you buy them! I haven't tried it, but I have a friend who did and she really liked it. I will say to be careful when ordering from Amazon with sizing. Check the chart and go by your measurements not your size.

Shop My Amazon

SHEIN

Shein is a website for discounted clothing (I believe from China) however the quality is very, very good. You can get designer dupes for more than half the price. I bought a Blank NYC dupe leather jacket last year and it's bad ass. The sizing is pretty accurate. Most places from China run small, this one is pretty good but again go by measurements not sizing. The swimwear does run smaller, I wear a large in their swim and I am a size 4. It's great for sweaters and I love for photoshoots! If you order over $100 you get express shipping and will arrive within a week. Normally shipping is about 2 weeks. Their return process is very good as well. You do it all online. Here are some of my fave picks for fall!

Every season there are new fads and trends popping up but we will always have our must-have staples! Last week I talked about the perfect T, which is a staple for any season in my opinion. This week I am going into my top fall must haves for this season.

The outfit I am wearing is my idea of a perfect fall ensemble. And YES you can wear white after Labor Day, so let's get that elephant out of the room right now. My go-to '18 fall fash is totally slouchy sweaters with a great bralet. I love the V neck sweaters or shirts that allow you to show some skin. This sweater is BP from Nordstrom and the bralet is Free People. I paired it with these perfect white denims by Juicy Couture and a burnt tan peep-toe bootie. So real quick, I did not think I liked a peep-toe bootie until I got a pair two years ago and now I decided they are the perfect Florida shoe for all year 'round. This sweater is super cozy yet thin enough for you to wear during transitional months like September and October. Throw on a cool pair of shades and some drop earrings to dress it up. I linked this look above!

In the next few sections I am showcasing my fave finds for six categories.

The last year I have taken a whole new approach in my shopping skill. I used to be one that needed many things (my mom was always this way) but this year when I moved I got rid of 6 trash bags worth of clothes. Yes S I X and then I have a whole rack of clothes I am selling on Poshmark and I am still overwhelmed with the amount I have.

Yes S I X and then I have a whole rack of clothes I am selling on Poshmark and I am still overwhelmed with the amount I have.

I am over not being able to find things until I am physically "cleaning out my closet". I find things constantly and I do this like "OMG I love this and haven't worn it in ages!" Yeah, because you couldn't find it Jenn. This is borderline hoarding. Joyce Meyer says people hold on to things because someday we may wear it, or someday we may need it… yeah but then when you do you can't find it because you have too much stuff!

 



I am taking a new approach heading into the fall months and buying quality items over quantity. I started shopping mostly at Nordstrom now buying really well-made clothing during sale events. I did a haul during the Nordstrom N Sale and got about 6 pieces for $150 which is really good for Nordstrom. I bought this adorable Socialite Front Tie dress which was on sale for $35 and this Wool Panama hat for $39. Then over the Labor Day sale I got two tanks I have been waiting to drop in price (in scroll below), one for $41 and the other for $35. I have always been someone who spent <$20 but now looking back at those pieces from Target or wherever, I have only worn it maybe 1-2x and gotten rid of them! The Chelsea lace tank was also on sale for $40 (cannot find so linking another one here for $42) and I snagged that baby and the Wayf Posie camisole for $32! 

So my new plan is to declutter the closet and simplify my wardrobe with only high quality, must-have pieces.

I have been holding onto dresses from 4-5 years ago that I have not worn since then. Like, seriously? A deep V neck sparkly dress? Yeah ok what about a wedding? What about NYE? Chances are with my track record I will be in the wedding, and I hate NYE so it's gotta go!

Here are some higher-end items at great prices; oh and my favorite line at Nordstrom is BP. Great quality at great prices. 

 

 

 

Simplify our lives, our minds and our eating ladies! These are 3 components of a happy life!

Someone once told me my style is "country chic". Initially, I was super irritated by this comment. But the more I get comfortable with myself and my style I realize that sometimes I am a little bit country!

Someone once told me my style is "country chic". Initially, I was super irritated by this comment. But the more I get comfortable with myself and my style I realize that sometimes I am a little bit country, so what!

I was born and raised in southern New Jersey next to Philadelphia. Know what's there? Corn, cows and farm land. Of course I am a little bit country. I started listening to country music when I was 18 years old and haven't stopped yet. I feel like this outfit describes my personality the best.

I am comfortable camping in a tent (I actually can pitch a tent and anchor a boat and bait my own fishing rod!) using baby wipes and dry shampoo for three days but also dressing up to the nine and holding my own at a 5 star restaurant. I am girly, but I also am very down to earth. I have slept outside in tents, on trampolines and front lawns! I also have spent evening in top of the line hotels with the best mattresses ever created. I love either, just depends on who I am with and the time of year. I still have not camped on the beach yet though.. Fort De Soto anyone?!

So I learned to embrace who I am because after all that is what fashion is all about. Showing the world who you are through the expression of art on your bod! That's how I got the inspriation for this look. I love the mauve still and glad it's still here for fall '18, and love anything with denim shorts. I thought you know what would be adorable, my camo hat and some pearls to soften the look. It's not for everyone, but again, own who you are and wear it proudly. 

Fun facts:

I am not bugged by bugs, I will kill those SOBs with no problem

I don't mind getting dirty

I grew up with my dad always having a boat so I know how to anchor and work that baby pretty well

I like to crab with fish heads and raw chicken on a string

I used to camp in my backyard every weekend with my cousins when I was younger in a tree house my dad built me

One day when I was a tot, my dad took me and my cousins on a party boat for 5 hours and we all chugged Kool-Aid Burst, and then we all puked for 3 hours. Clearly deep sea fishing is not my forte!

My favorite hotel bed is the Sofitel

I am a Hilton girl though, my favorite one is in Disney Springs (Palace)

I would rather eat crabs with my fingers and drink beer then go to a fancy dinner (most of the time)

I love laying in plush grass, or running in it with barefeet; simple pleasure

So over the summer one of my go-to recipes was homemade guacamole & baked corn chips. I like making my own chips because it's way healthier & I love the consistency. So I decided to let everyone in on my secrets!

 

So over the summer one of my go-to recipes was homemade guacamole & baked corn chips. I like making my own chips because it's way healthier & I love the consistency. So I decided to let everyone in on my secrets!

Also, if anyone is looking for a gift to get me I really need a stone bowl for guac. Ok thanks!

Ingredients
(makes enough for 3-4 people)

2 ripe avocados
Half of a tomato (I like firmer tomatoes for this)
A ton of cilantro
Half of a lime
Chopped garlic
Avocado Oil
Salt
Pepper
Onion Powder
Corn tortillas

Directions:

The best way to cut an avocado is right down the middle, split it and take out the pit. Peel the skin back & throw it in a bowl. Rinse tomato & your cilantro. Chop both up finely. Throw that into the bowl. I do not measure my dry ingredients I do it to taste. Start with a little & add more as you go. I like a lot of cilantro & a lot of lime. I do not like real onion because it's too much so that is why I use the powder. Since I sadly do not have a guac bowl I use a fork & mash to consistency you like. I like mine chunky.

 

For the chips, take a pan and grease it with avocado oil and so the same with your tortillas. I make four at a time. Lay them on the pan & sprinkle with paprika. Pre-heat the oven to 475 and bake for 8 min. Let them cool & then use a pizza cutter to cut.

Enjoy!!

The best advice I can give a new blogger is to invest in your photos. I always had friends taking mine but I realized the more interest I was recieving from companies to help promote their brands, the better quality my photos needed to be. Branding and consistency  are some of the most important aspects of a persons business. People like a clean look on a website and photos. So, this year I decided to hire a professional ongoing photographer.

Branding and consistency  are some of the most important aspects of a persons business. People like a clean look on a website and photos. So, this year I decided to hire a professional ongoing photographer.

Why I love social media.

I went onto Instagram and looked up the hashtag #tampaphotograhers. I spent a few hours looking through and researching the diffrent photographers work, websites and about them. It is very imporant to mesh well with the people you work with, so having things in common and the same values and views are important. 

I found Audra Nicole on IG and I was immediately attracted to her photos. I am a big lover of natural light in my photos and my life in general. Her photos were clean, light, bright and full of personality. I went to her website which was also the same. I read about her and we had some things in common; 

1. We both love Jesus

2. We both love Disney World

3. We both love fashion

I think these three things are some of the most important qualities a person can have haha. So, I took a chance and direct messaged her. I told her what I was looking for and even though she had not been doing bloggers I knew she would do a great job; she said LET'S DO IT! She was looking to change away from families and do more branding so it was perfect timing. 

My first shoot was really fun and I liked working with her. Although I had been blogging for about two years now, she gave me so many great pointers to make my photos look better. She always listens to my opinions and takes into consideration my ideas and plans for each look. She knows my pain points on my body (arms cough cough) so she always makes sure those little areas are what I would be ok with. She shows me photos she does not like I would like so I can adjust and fix my body or clothing imperfections to retake it. I never have to re-edit my photos, she does a great job and gets them back to me within 1 week of the shoot. She is always up for props and trying different locations and is ALWAYS on time! She is a busy mom of 3 with a full-time job and a photography business... the term "superwoman" is an understatement. Check out her website and book a session; tell her Jenn sent you!
