Blogging Babes: Haircut and General Attitude

I just moved so I’m super curious about other cities. Where do you call home and what’s your favorite part about it?

I live in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Like the name states, it’s a cute grove of trees nestled against the mountainside. I really love living here; it’s close to everything but still not a big, busy city. Very home-y :) Probably my favorite thing about it is Historic Main Street, where many of the original buildings still stand in all their vintage glory and a couple cute boutiques and an antique shop line the street. I also love enjoying free strawberries and cream in the summer for “Strawberry Days” (The town used to be full of strawberry fields way back when!)

Looking back, what was one of the earliest moments you can think of that you knew you were starting to get interested in fashion? For example, mine was when I was 15 and stole all of my mom’s quarters out of her coat pockets just so I can buy my first Vogue. 

Probably the first memory I can think of was always wanting to wear my Mom’s lipstick as a youngster. I would watch her get ready for church and sometimes if I was lucky she’d let me swipe on some of her lightly tinted shimmery pink lipstick. I also remember really getting into makeup at the age of 15 and buying every issue of Allure and spending all my money at Sephora. That, in turn, slowly got me interested in fashion, too. So funny that our stories are so similar! photo jess2_zpsca47d5e0.jpg
What’s your favorite layering technique for summer? I know that that can be tricky!

Hmm, probably my most used layering technique for Summer is throwing a cardi on over a dress! So simple. I’m always cold and I try to dress pretty modestly so it just works for me!  photo jess3_zps02562604.jpg
You and your hubs got married pretty young- where did you two love birds meet? 

Yes, I was a month shy of 20. I never imagined myself getting married so young but I was lucky to find the right person early in life and I wasn’t letting that go to waste! We met our senior year of high school at the local grocery store we both worked at. I thought he was cute and heard he thought the same of me but was too shy to make a move so I got his number from a mutual friend and we started texting non-stop. We happened to both get our wisdom teeth out on the same weekend and our first date was spent at the movies with matching chipmunk cheeks :) 2 years later we were married and I’m still head over heels in love with the guy!
