What's happening:

This past weekend, Jordan was randomly off Friday-Sunday. I took off Friday, and we enjoyed a three day weekend together!

Friday had a rainy start, but we made it to Fondren for lunch and dessert!

We went to Brent's for lunch!



Cherry limeade. YUM. 


...and finally got to try La Brioche!!!!! (I'm obsessed. It may be one of my new favorite places ever.)





Jordan had a macchiato and tried his first macarons! He had chocolate and earl grey. Earl grey was the best. Divine. 


I had the most luscious hot chocolate ever. Plus a vanilla and chocolate macaron! I can't wait to go back and take my sister!

Hope you're enjoying April!
LOVE,
Jessica

Currently {April} Link-Up!

April is here, friends! Spring is in full swing - at least in Mississippi, and Easter is mere days away. I love this time of year! Warm weather, sunshine, blooming flowers, and sandals! I'm linking up today with Jenna and Anne! Won't you join us?



I'm currently wearing:  Warmer weather attire! And comfy clothes. I do want to look great, but I also want to feel great. That doesn't always happen when my clothes are too tight! ;)



I'm currently sipping:  Starbucks, as usual!



I'm currently wishlisting:  Oh, y'all, I have a never-ending want-list. I know, I know. I have more than I need. I just really enjoy stuff. I have a Pinterest Wishlist AND a Pinterest 2015 Birthday List. Oh, and an Amazon Wishlist. Only one month and 17 days until my 29th birthday, just in case you were wondering.

I'm also wishing that Hart of Dixie Season Four be released on DVD as soon as possible. :) I'm almost done watching Season Three, and I LOVE THIS SHOW!


I'm currently writing:  I've been super unproductive when it comes to writing much of anything except Instagram captions. Gotta get my head back in the game - both for blogging and fiction writing!


I'm currently exploring:  Hmm...the Lilly Pulizter for Target Lookbook!It kind of overwhelms me, so we'll see if I brave the store on 4/19.




Love,

My first Influenster Voxbox {Dessange Paris}


I am obsessed with being bright blonde, so when Influenster sent me the Dessage Paris California Blonde Voxbox, I was stoked! Plus, it was totally complimentary!!!!!

I love getting mail, so when this box came, I was excited to see three full-size products. I have been enjoying the shampoo and conditioner. The scent is long-lasting, and I like the formula as well.

I haven't tried the CC Creme yet! At first, I had just colored my hair, so I didn't want to accidentally tint it blue. Not that I would mind, but Corporate America doesn't love the idea. Secondly, it says to test a patch on your skin to make sure you aren't allergic. I don't do this when I dye my hair, so I don't know why I'm worried. I guess I just didn't want to write a review that I had hives and/or lost my locks. Hah.



(I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.)

LOVE,
Jessica

It's official. I'm a KEEPer!

I love Johnny Depp. 
I wear as much black as Johnny Cash. 
I don't think "too blonde" exists.
Leopard print is my favorite. 
I have big dreams. 
If I'm not a P.I., a WWE Diva, a hairdresser, or a librarian, I may as well sell some jewelry!

A few weeks ago, I saw this gorgeous arm party on an Instagram account I follow! (hey, Aida!)



I clicked the link in her profile to shop and fell in love! KEEP Collective is affordable and fun, and I was totally drawn in!

As of today, I'm officially a KEEP Collective designer!!!


I'm excited to build my own collection and to help you start yours as well! I'm not in this to get rich or be pushy. It's just something I totally adore! Follow my social media for pictures and updates, and let's book a social (in home or online)!

LOVE Y'ALL,
Jessica

MARCHing on...

It's March 20, and spring is here!!!!!! I haven't blogged in almost a month, but I'm back. (This is also where I say, "Wow, 2015 is flying by!" But really though.)

The warmer, somewhat sunnier weather has me in a good place, y'all! After the winter, it getting dark earlier, and the colder/wetter days, I am welcoming spring with open arms. 

How are you? What's been happening in your life?



I have so many random things to say. 
1.  Every time I sing "Centuries" by Fall Out Boy or "Sugar" by Maroon 5, I replace the words ("centuries"/"sympathy", respectively) with the word "symphonies"/"symphony"....I'm either craving the orchestra or my favorite candy bar. *shrugs*

2.  I think I was waiting to really be inspired to write some heart-changing blog post or something. I don't know where I've been. Writer's block? Uninspired? Lazy? Whatever, y'all. I'm back. (In black, of course!)

3.  I can't wait to see Insurgent! I can tell I'm growing older because I'm seeing it on Saturday and not at midnight last night or at 7:00 tonight. Sometimes, convenience and comfort win. Plus, I was in bed by 9:30 last night! ;)



4.  Due to some stairs and some dancing on Tuesday, my calves still feel like rocks. They are getting more back to normal today. Geez. Old lady status!

5.  Still obsessed with my shorter hair!


6.  There's an exciting new venture on the horizon in my life, and I can't wait to spill the beans!!!!! (It's not a baby! Hahah)

Love,
Jessica

This little light of mine...

Will keep shining even in my darkest days. 

Sometimes, circumstances or events in life blow through like a sudden gust. My flame flickers, threatening to be extinguished. Somehow, though, it remains. My beacon in the darkness. My hope. 

Have you been there? Are you there right now? Under the crushing weight of life?

My friend Sarah Ann Rogers just wrote this ebook about her season of darkness. I found it wonderfully written and so encouraging for my own life. Whether you're dealing with loss or a season of waiting or whether you're going depression or anxiety or loneliness, this book is for you. I promise. 


You can (and should!) purchase it here. Plus, there is an additional audio companion for your use! You can purchase the bundle here

Thanks to Sarah for sending me a copy to review and for writing from the depths of her heart. It helps to know we aren't alone. It helps to have a friend who helps you keep your flame lit. 

Love y'all,
Jessica

Mid-February

We're just over mid-way through the second month of 2015, and it's just THREE MONTHS UNTIL MY BIRTHDAY! I'm just wanted to check in to share what I've been up to this month.

Starting things out with a selfie, as usual. :)


I'm still in the early chapters of this book, and already I've underlined a million and one things. Please be sure to check Lara's blog out!




I used these amazingly fantastic Valentine's Day cards from A Beautiful Mess! They offered it as a free printable to their email subscribers. AHEM. Go. Join!


We celebrated Valentine's Day with lunch, Forever 21, a walk, and dinner at Krystal's! The day could not have been more perfect. Honestly? So blessed to have this guy as my husband.

Sunday, Jordan was kind enough to take my picture. You know me and my backyard outfit posts. This is number...two.  ;)






That's all for now!
Love,
Jessica
