11.21.2010 | | 0 comments
Yayyy the time has finally come to announce the winners from my 500 subscribers contest that began just about a month ago! The entries all had to feature the meaning of your name. Everything else included was optional, yet encouraged (cause it's more fun!!). There were 2 winners-one comment & one video response. I ended up getting almost 300 comments with 92 comment entries & 18 video responses. With the help of random.org, youtube, and my mom, I came up with the winners!
Comment winner: VictoriaNAlly
Video winner: MissBeautyMae
Congratulations to the both of them!!!

Thank you once again to all who entered. It was such a blessing to get to know everyone so much better! I adored reading everyone's comments & talking back & forth. That's what it's all about!


See you at 1,000 (hopefully) hehe! Your Jenna

SHORTS IN FALL?!

YES it can be done! & with class & style to boot! The trick to pulling off things like shorts, skirts, dresses, etc. in Fall or any time there's colder weather in your area is to remember some simple rules:
Make sure your not showing skin everywhere! For example, if you plan on showing some leg, keep the girls under wraps! If you wanna show off some chest, cover your leggies!
Also, choose thicker fabrics such as tweed and fleece to keep warm & pair with some great boots but still look fierce!


This is a fun way to keep those Summer clothes around a bit longer & really get people talking! (in a good way)!!
Here's a preview of the look in my video...
& don't forget to splurge on a great pair of tall boots!!
These were only $29.99 from Forever 21!!

Shorts, Dresses, & Skirts live on...<3 Jenna

500 SUBSCRIBERS CONTEST!!

10.27.2010 | | 0 comments
I am currently holding a contest on my youtube channel in celebration of reaching 500 subscribers!! The number of subscribers I get/have does not matter to me; I just love making a positive impact on people's lives & love knowing that I've helped someone in some way. I also enjoy giving gifts away & feel like contests are a great way to get to know my subscribers better!


The theme of my contest is about your name. People's names hold so much meaning in their lives. It's what we identify ourselves with our whole existence. Finding the meaning of your name is my main 'rule' for this contest. I think finding out the meaning of your name is just so fun to learn about, talk about, & embrace. I posted the link to my video above where you can hear all about the theme, rules, prizes, etc. YOU MUST ENTER BY COMMENTING ON THE VIDEO, NOT THIS BLOG.

COMMENT ENTRY:
*Find the meaning of your name, tell me what it is~you can tell me if you like it, dislike it, love it, hate it, etc. or simply just put your name & what it means. ALL UP TO YOU-HAVE FUN, BE CREATIVE if you want. WINNER will be chosen using random.org. LEAVE COMMENT BELOW; MAY ENTER MULTIPLE TIMES!

VIDEO ENTRY:
*Find the meaning of your name & create a look~hair, makeup, nails, clothes, drawing, a story, etc. You can be as crazy or plain as you want. BE CREATIVE, HAVE FUN!

GET AHEAD WHILE YOU CAN!

Why not beat the 'winter weight' we all dread around the holiday season fast approaching & get ahead of ourselves by starting NOW! View my Gym Time video to get some inspiration!! 

Our biggest inspirations, however, are OURSELVES!  If you struggle to find the mental push yourself, find it elsewhere! Youtube, magazines, etc. have TONS of inspiration & visual push that will get our butts in gear (literally)! As people, we are very visual creatures-so visual stimulation is so strong in our minds & will give us that extra oomph we need to DO something instead of just TALKING about it. 

Gym memberships are getting cheaper & cheaper these days-especially if you do your homework! Ask friends, family, neighbors, whoever about their gym & see if any deals are going on at that time or if you can join together & get discounts!! There are ways to save money everywhere-we just have to ask! If money is still a problem, ask people to pitch in for your birthday or the holidays approaching & let them know you really wanna jump start your health this year! Forget a New Year's resolution-start a NOW resolution!! 

Sometimes having the right thing to wear (especially us women) is just the key to get us motivated! 
Wal-mart has tons of active wear for cheap! They also have sports bras in many styles & sizes (which are very important for working out)! Also, check ebay, craigslist, freecycle, etc. for less expensive options. 
This is my "GET UP & GO" face! hahaha
*REMEMBER* WE are the only ones holding ourselves back! Why struggle to lose all that extra baggage once you already have it when you can get ahead of yourself now, boost your metabolism-stamina-energy-etc., & get MOVING

Running sneakers & all, Jenna

Who says cleaning/organizing only really gets done in the Spring?! LIES! 
Watch my QUICK BATHROOM STORAGE/ORGANIZATION video for yourself to view some tips and tricks to fast & easy organization anywhere in your house & life!
I found these storage thingys in the laundry section at my local Wal-Mart from the brand Canopy but you can also find them online right here! along with other kinds of organizers & space savers!
I felt so relieved & relaxed after this quick little 3 minute project! Be sure to watch the whole video for the real "before & after" experience! 
Happy Organizing!!!

Restful minds & cleaning any season, <3 Jenna

Urban Decay Eyes!

Happy almost Friday!! Have you seen my new tutorial on youtube featuring three URBAN DECAY eyeshadows? If not watch it here! . This tutorial was requested by one of my faithful subscribers who saw my makeup collection & was particularly interested in this set of eyeshadows.
The colors featured are:
'Roach'
'X'
'Baked'
These colors, as you can see, go very well together! Hope you enjoy my tutorial of how to mix them together on one eyelid! Keep those suggestions coming!

Love & Urban Decayness, Jenna

Eyebrows: A Beauty Essential

Here's the latest upload from my youtube channel~an eyebrow requested tutorial! I support & fully encourage people to keep their brows as natural as possible!! Just edit/enhance your natural shape to really give your face its best overall look. Eyesbrows are the main focus that shape your face and without them we look funny! So, don't over-tweeze ladies & gents!!
Here's the tools I use & the ones you will need:
Maybelline Define-a-Brow Pencil (mine's Dark Brown)
Maybelline Define-a-Brow Gel
Maybelline Ultra-Brow Brush On Color (mine's Dark Brown again)
Tweezers (I use e.l.f. Professional for $1!)
Eyebrow Scissors (you can find these at any drugstore or Walmart, Target, etc.)
Eyebrow Razors (you can find these at any drugstore or Walmart, Target, etc.)


This is an example of my ideal eyebrows & some others I feel have beautiful naturally enhanced brows!
My favorite beautifully browed angel Miranda Kerr
Dakota Fanning embraces her naturally thick & tamed tresses
Kiera Knightly's are similar just a darker shade & just as lovely
& who could forget Megan Fox's signature arched power brows

Beautiful Brows everywhere, Jenna

To Buy or Not to Buy?

8.30.2010 | | 0 comments
As some of you may know from watching my What's Goin On?!  video about a month ago, I am without a personal computer of my own at the moment. Mine crashed and I have been stuck using my dad's little laptop to edit and post videos. I have been saving up all summer with the plans of buying a new laptop (I've never had one before!) around or before Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving ;P). 

I've asked many friends what they suggest and I get different answers from everyone; so I decided to ask all of you! What are great laptops to get??!! I do a lot of picture/video editing, have some music, and want something very reliable. I have heard amazing things about Macs, but never owned one. I am interested in the MacBook Pro

But! (there's always a 'but'..) They cost sooo much that it better last me the rest of my doggone life!! Any feedback please?! & Thank you!

My 1st BLOG Post ever!!!

8.29.2010 | | 0 comments
Hello my loves!! Welcome to my brand spankin' new blogspot! I'm so super excited about this & can't wait to get started. 

First of all, THANKYOU for visiting & I do hope you choose to follow me. I may not have the most interesting life ever but I'll let you in to my life & hope you enjoy the ride! More personal things will be posted here compared to my youtube; but I will integrate the two quite a bit! I will post more personal pictures up here from my entire life & also give more details featured on my main youtube channel!
My primary inspiration for this blog is Kandee Johnson. She is by far my most favorite youtuber, guru, blogger, person ever! She is such a great role model for anyone-boy or girl-of any age! Some of her posts have changed my life (literally)! She has the ability to turn my day around just by reading her happy & always inspiring blog posts. She is so genuine and just a great person all around. I can only pray that any of my future posts will touch, help, inspire, etc. any of you beautiful people out there just as Kandee has done for me! If you have never heard of her you can find her at these lovely places!:

She has more but these are her two main channels!

Thank you again for joining me on the beginning of this new adventure in my life!

Love you ALL, Jenna!
