7BC316E1-6084-4841-A557-4081015A93F0

Halloween weekend is finally here! Are you ready? ‘Cause I am! Halloween is a holiday where you can just have fun. You can stop worrying about everything and pretend to be someone or something else.Whether you want to be the sexy cat, or dress up as the Cat in the Hat, you can be anyone or anything that you want to be.

One of my favorite things to do around this time is looking at different Halloween makeup looks on Instagram. I can spend hours watching makeup videos and just admiring the hard work that goes into each look. Some of the most creative, inspiring and gifted people use Halloween to show off their artistic abilities and I love it.

If you got it, haunt it!

Sea the Beauty: YDAMYS SIMO’s Collection at Style Fashion Week

After seeing the collection, all I wanted to do was rent a boat and sail off into the sea. All of the pieces in the collection have a feel-good vibe. I think they are a lot of fun. I love the message behind this line: shatter the norms and redefine the way you see beauty.

“Sea The Beauty of a soul’s depth and the surface will never again be enough.” 

The Sea the Beauty collection is all about seeing the beauty within yourself. Loving yourself. Knowing that you are beautiful.

Nick Santonastasso was the opening model for the line. Everyone around me stood up when he walked down the runway. He was fierce. He was captivating. He was inspiring. “The most attractive thing you can be is different”- Nick Santonastasso

Shatter the norms. Redefine beauty.

“I am immensely proud of the brand I have created. I am proud of the unique designs but equally proud of the positive message I attach to them. I want to make a difference in the world. I want to leave the younger generation with a positive message and a positive image about themselves.” – Designer YDAMYS SIMO

 

These are my top looks from this collection:

From Last Year to This Year: Meeting Victoria’s Secret Model Sadie Newman

It’s that time of year again! New York Fashion Week is right around the corner, school’s back in session…and models from all over the world come into New York City to audition to be in the big Victoria’s Secret fashion show!

Last year I blogged about what it was like to be at the Victoria’s Secret castings. This year, I didn’t know what to expect. I only had 20 minutes to be there. But what can you really do with 20 minutes? Little did I know that in that short amount of time, I was able to meet Victoria’s Secret model Sadie Newman. Some may call it destiny and some may just say it’s a coincidence, but last year Sadie was the first picture in my Victoria’s Secret post. Now a year later, she’s posing with me in the middle of Manhattan.

If the Jenny last year could see the Jenny this year, she’d be shocked. So much has changed in my life, it’s incredible. Many of you have been asking where I’ve been… The truth is I took the summer to refocus on myself. Just a few days ago, I received the sweetest phone call from one of my original models, Shinice Kelly. She told me that she is actually putting her first fashion show together in March. It really touched my heart to hear what an impact my blog had on her life. It’s moments like those that really remind me how important my blog is.

So with that, I just want to thank you for all of your love and support.

Happy Thanksgiving from Fashion Blogger Jenny A.

Keep calm and gobble on! This year my friends and I decided to be trendy and make our own Friendsgiving. We wanted to do a little something special for the holidays. There were about 10 of us and we all had to bring our own dish.

My mom and dad helped me put a delicious assortment together. My mom baked her famous broccoli quiche and my dad raced to get some boxes of donuts. My parents are the best! I think the new motto should be keep calm and call mom & dad.

Honestly, it was so heartwarming to see everyone come together and celebrate. While we were all eating I looked around the room and just thought about how thankful I am.

I just want to take the time to thank all of you for being so wonderful. I hope you have a fabulous Friendsgiving, Turkey Day and Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love always,

-Jenny A.

Model Aeri Cohen’s Healthy Lifestyle

Meet Aeri:

Aeri Cohen is an extraordinary model with an artistic eye. When she is not on the runway, you can find her behind the scenes doing makeup for different New York fashion shows. Her ultimate makeup look is something simple yet beautiful where she can add her own creative details. Like a true fashionista at heart, she always carries her brush and concealer.

Healthy – Healthy – Healthy. Did I mention the word healthy? Aeri has a very healthy lifestyle. She never misses her daily yoga and is always drinking a healthy refreshing smoothie. Now that I think about it, even during our interview, she was on her way to a yoga class while sippin’ on a smoothie! You can find her wearing workout clothes during the day and fancy outfits at night.

I really admire Aeri because she lives her life by always moving forward and letting things go. Her biggest accomplishment is that she was able to use meditation to manage her migraines. Now that she accomplished that, she can do ANYTHING!

When I asked her what fruit or vegetable she would be, she started to say that she would be an avocado but then decided she didn’t want to be eaten!

Aeri is the owner of ISHKINart where she creates beautiful artwork which can be found on Etsy.

Model Rebecca Sorkin’s Fall Bucket List

Fall is my favorite season! I love watching Halloween inspired makeup tutorials and videos. I love looking at how beautiful the trees look wearing their new autumn colors. And most of all… I love tasting homemade pumpkin pies. Yummm!

So in honor of my favorite season, model Rebecca Sorkin shared her fall 2017 bucket list with us! Here it is:

  • Apple picking – You are the apple of my eye
  • Watching Halloween movies – Netflix & chill
  • Trying out fall makeup looks – Hello gorgeous!
  • Watching football games – Sunday night football
  • BakingWhisk me away

So far, I’ve done 2 out of the 5 items on Rebecca’s bucket list. I went apple picking with Josh, my boyfriend at Dr. Davies Farm and we had a blast! We went from tree to tree looking for the best apples. As for the watching Halloween movies bucket list item – I think my one scary movie experience is enough for me. Josh dragged me to see the new IT movie at a drive-in movie theater. During the movie, I noticed something in the corner of my eye and when I turned my head, IT was standing outside my car window holding a red balloon! I was so scared. Even when the movie was over and guy who dressed up as IT was long gone, I couldn’t get myself to step outside of the car!

Do you have a fall bucket list? Have you done any of these things on Rebecca’s bucket list?! Let me know in the comments below!

A big thank you to Rebecca for sharing her bucket list with us! You can check out Rebecca’s gallery here : http://lubaphoto.com/classic-glamour
