PLAY > Samantha Jade - Sweet Talk

Does anyone remember her?!  I was a freshman in college when 'Turn Around' came out and wish she would have been more successful in the States.  I guess she's killing it in Australia, because this is pastel pop perfection.  And the blonde hair is FIERCE!


Don't be too quick to judge...this is not auto tune! Girl can really sing!

How To Avoid Overeating During The Holidays

Thanksgiving and overindulging go hand in hand for me, but I do try to be mindful of the volume of food I'm putting into my body.  I also think it's important to capitalize on the quality of food rather than the quantity.  With that said, I try to approach my holiday dinners with an eating game plan, so here are some tips and tricks I use to avoid overeating during the these next couple of months.


8 TIPS:
**I expound on each tip in the video**

1.) eat throughout the day
2.) wear tight or form-fitting clothing
3.) drink a glass of water
4.) keep everything to one plate
5.) load up on veggies
6.) save room for the good stuff
7.) stand up & drink up
8.) eat slow & enjoy

Follow @nowandjenn on +Instagram 

Share your tips & tricks in the comments below and have a great Thanksgiving holiday, everyone.  Love you all!

REVIEW: Equitance Brightening Serum + Spot Corrector

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.


QUICK TAKE: Nice packaging!  Serum has a classic scent.

USAGE TIPS:  I did not have to use this twice a day to see results.  Twice a day is recommended though.

THE VERDICT:  This product worked for my skin!  I love serums and I have to say, this is one of the best.  I have been testing this product out for a little over two weeks and only applied it once a day as a base to my nighttime moisturizer.  My skin always drys out during the winter months and this product has really helped my moisturizer work better.  I wake up with glowing skin, and it feels super soft and supple.  The tone and texture of my skin has never looked better.  I'm so happy I got to try this product and am debating whether or not I should test out the entire brightening collection that Equitance has to offer.  Thanks Influenster for selecting me because I loved testing this serum out!

*UPDATE* Promo code: INFL15 is no longer valid (expired on Nov 20, 2014).  Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals are just around the corner though!  See below for details :)

What Jenn Wore: Fave Fall Trends (+ Meet Mufasa)

There's nothing like the Midwest and its unpredictable weather, and this week was a prime example of that.  I'm always thrown for a loop when it goes from 65 degrees, warm, and sunny to 16 degrees, freezing, and SNOWING?!  Like what the heck Mother Nature?  It literally cramps my style, especially since I pick out my week's outfits on Sunday night.  I suppose I've adapted to the false forecasts and the wily Illinois weather...so much so that I never leave home without extra layering pieces.

Anyways, shall we talk about What Jenn Wore and why I'm so excited about it?!  It's a new bit that I'm testing out, so yu guys will have to let me know what you think.  I really love the idea!

I'm quite busy with school and don't have the time to find cool backdrops, but this is me, at my home, leaving for class or research for the day.  What Jenn Wore videos will offer you a glimpse into another part of my life and will showcase my styling abilities (or inabilites...haha).

Like yu, I'm inspired by fashion bloggers, runway shows, and new trends.  Thank you Internet!  I would define my personal style as mature, tasteful, and classic...with a twist, because as much as I love my timeless wardrobe, I really enjoy adding quirk with vintage finds or modernizing my collection with on-trend pieces.

I hope you guys enjoy this first What Jenn Wore video and please like, subscribe, follow...all that good stuff.  Love yu all!  Thanks for the continued support :)

How To Cozy Up A Room (+ DIY Scarf Pillows)

I enjoy redecorating and rearranging my bedroom, but my tight budget and small living quarters forces me to be more mindful of what I purchase.  Everything I buy nowadays seems to have multiple purposes and that really helps me stretch out my dollar and my style.

When I do purchase new items for my room, I focus on finding timeless pieces that can be used for various holidays and seasons.  I'm not a huge fan of kitschy or holiday themed decor and tend to focus more on incorporating classic textures and patterns.

The majority of the items in this video are things that I've collected over the years and have been able to use over and over again.  The only new piece of decor I purchased is the "J" monogram mug (sold in Target stores). 
::VIDEO MAKEUP::
RIMMEL LONDON BB Cream in Medium
E.L.F. Eyebrow Kit in Dark
RIMMEL LONDON Scandalous Eyeliner in Black
MAYBELLINE Colossal Volume Mascara in Classic Black
KRYOLAN Highlighter in Cashmere
JAPONESQUE Velvet Touch Blush in 03
MAYBELLINE Color Whisper in Pin Up Peach

:VIDEO OUTFIT::
EXPRESS Infinity Scarf - Leopard
BANANA REPUBLIC Tank - Black
LAVISH Swing Cardigan - Black
JESSICA SIMPSON Ponte Knit Jeggings - Black

Influenster #ModaVoxbox

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.


THE GOOD:  I have never gotten this many items in one box!  I'm glad I was qualified for this box!

THE BAD:  I felt a bit misled, because I felt like +Influenster insinuated that this would be a fashion box.  I had expected some sort of accessory or clothing item, but to my dismay, nothing was really fashion related.  I suppose beauty items can be considered fashion trends.

THE LOVELY:  There was nothing I didn't like.  The mascara didn't work too well for me, but the rest of the box was great!  My favorite product was the +RimmelLondonUS Moisture Renew Lipstick in 505 Red Alert.  It's a great red and perfect for the holidays.  The Moisture Renew Transparent Liner has also been a great addition to my lip product collection.  It works really well.  +Clairol Professional Hair Food Hair Mask was another one of my favorites.  It makes my hair so silky smooth and I love it!  All in all, this was a fantastic box!  Thank you so much +Influenster!
