LIFESTYLE

I realize this blog has a lot to do with the phyiscal spaces we lives in but my life is full of so much more than that. In fact, that's only a tiny sliver of Jordan Jean and this slice of the internet! There's so many other areas that spark joy in my life and my hope is that through these posts you'll feel that joy too. I'm a relentless believer, constantly striving to give up all control to the only One deserving. I do my best to saturate intention into my time and anything I buy, wear, use, and bring into our home. I love me a good sweat and run a marathon from time to time to get one state closer to my ultimate goal of... 50. Oh, and I am a sucker for weddings. Don't worry though, there's more. Dive in below!

HAIR + MAKE UP

Hi! Something that I learned quickly on this curly girl journey is that updos are a curly girl’s BFF. I couldn’t make it through day 3ish-5 or 6 without them! I figured that what I’d do is create this vault of sorts where I’ll share all of my updos with you all so that they […]

Hi friends! I’m not kidding when I say “every single detail about my skincare routine” will be in this post. You’ve asked and asked and asked so you shall receive! I’m about to share it ALL with you and why my face looks the way it looks. Okay pause. It feels foolish to even say […]

Happy Thursday, friends! Today we’re talking every day makeup essentials. I’m not going to go into the HOW just yet (don’t worry, it’s on the schedule) but I am going to start by sharing the products I use every single morning before I go to work in case you want to try some of these yourself. […]

Good morning! I’ve been told so many times and read all over that washing your hair frequently is a bad, bad thing to do. I started to do some research on the topic and realized that there is no clear recommendation. Everything pretty much says, “It depends on the hair type, person’s preference, etc.” Of […]

It was emotionally exhausting, […]

Weddings can be expensive. The word expensive being subjective of course. To a millionaire, $50,000 probably doesn’t seem like a lot for a wedding but to me, that’s a heck of a lot of money to spend on one day! Don’t get me wrong, it’s arguably one of the most important days of your life […]

I’m a goal-oriented person. I guess you could say I’m a goal digger of sorts. Now that “goal setting season” is in full effect, it makes me so excited to extend on from my previous goals and continue growing. When goal setting I think it’s really important to be realistic. It’s really natural to think, […]

Every year Stephen and I sit down together to review our year. We really enjoy breaking down every month and reminiscing over all of the good memories we made. It’s also really useful to use this time to write down our goals for the upcoming year, which I’ll discuss tomorrow! We celebrated so much in […]

Weddings can be expensive. The word expensive being subjective of course. To a millionaire, $50,000 probably doesn’t seem like a lot for a wedding but to me, that’s a heck of a lot of money to spend on one day! Don’t get me wrong, it’s arguably one of the most important days of your life […]
