Dynamic Duo: Jen and Jasmine

Hello!
Yes, I am still very much alive! I missed you all! I'm so sorry for my week-long absence, especially with the acquisition of so many new followers! Thank you to Erin and Rebecca for the mentions in their blogs; it was weird seeing my face on their amazing pages! I'm planning a giveaway since I'm close to reaching 100 followers, so stay tuned for that! Until then, may I present to you...

the Dynamic Duo! When Jen won my first giveaway, I was so excited that she won not only because I seriously believe she and I are long-lost sisters in a past lifetime, but also because I knew I wanted to do a Delightful-Dozen-Inspired Collaboration! One bow--two bloggers' interpretations.

When you check out her blog, you'll be smitten with her amazing photo shoot locations, and her simple yet accessibly chic outfits. I love that we have similar color-schemes and that neither of us went super-girly as expected, like I said we were probably sisters in a past lifetime. Just from communicating through emails and comments, I already know that when we do meet up (yes when, not if!), we're never going to want to leave each other because we're going to talk about everything and anything!

While browsing through Urban Outfitter's website, I tried to convince my conscience to let me buy some more bows. When that failed, I remembered the hairband that Taylor gave me last week and clipped the two together--simplest DIY ever! $1.50 vs. $18! I just wish I had enough self-control to stop me from buying this little jacket. I was going to buy this for my New York trip, but I'm glad I didn't because at $54, it was too expensive and impractical for NY's weather. But...at $26 (and with pockets and a cute little bow in the back), it's the perfect little jacket for Spring! I haven't worn anything with a hood in a very long time, so it was nice to know that this jacket is cute and functional!

I am so ready for Spring to be here. It has not been sunny here at all. It's been rather...stuffy actually--on the verge of rain, with the clouds trapping the heat like a bubble. The trees are starting to sprout green leaves, and flowers are beginning to bloom. I also miss my tan!

So I met with my first client on Tuesday. The newlyweds-to-be were so sweet! I really couldn't have asked for a better first gig! Their wedding is on March 6th, but until then I have so many things to do for school that I don't think I have much time to be nervous! I really will try my hardest to post soon, but no guarantees!

Good luck to all of you with exams!

Until next post,
Jasmine

  1. Jazz, if you want to put a price on the bows, the two alike are $5 for both and $12 for the headband.

    I so want to meet both you and Jen. Tell me how and I'll try and be there!
