Hi I’m Jenn

Hi I’m Jenn

Hi my name is Jenn, Jenny, Jennifer, feel free to call me whatever you would like. We are all about to become very good friends here. I feel very uncomfortable talking about myself and here I am writing about myself, let’s see how this goes!

A little bit about myself I live in southern Minnesota with my husband Scott, son Cooper and fur baby Bailey. I work full time as an Internal Accounting Analyst for a staffing company in the Twin Cities and have been with the company for almost seven years. Prior to my current position I was a makeup artist for MAC Cosmetics for five years, where I was part of the managing staff for three of those years. I loved being a makeup artist so after I left MAC I continued pursuing freelance makeup for events and weddings. I have always had a passion for helping women feel beautiful in their own skin. I love teaching women that makeup isn’t about covering up. It’s about finding the right tools and products to make you feel confident and to let your inner beauty shine. I have my degree in Business and Marketing, which is part of the reason I am here writing today!

I am one of 4 girls in my family, growing up with 3 sisters makes me pretty well versed in all things girl. As a hobby I am into fitness and living an overall healthy lifestyle. I enjoy being active and finding new ways to live my healthiest life for my family and myself. I love trying new workouts, health foods and I will forever be a Tone It Up Girl. I am not a fitness professional….. yet. It is my dream one day to work in that industry it truly is a passion of mine. Health and fitness is a never-ending journey and there are always new ways to challenge yourself.

I am not the girl with the perfect hair, makeup and put together outfits. If I am not at work you will find me in my yoga pants. I consider Target to be my second home. I love fall, crockpots, candles and anything pumpkin spice….insert basic bia here. When I am not pregnant I have the occasional glass of wine or two on a “Wine not Wednesday”. I love to eat chips and salsa and have a margarita with my girls. Binge watching a new TV show with my hubby has become my husband and I’s new date night and we kind of love it. I have a passion for wanting to build others up and try to spread positivity where I can, even if all I can give is a smile. I live by the phrase “you never know what kind of day that other person is having, so try to brighten their day no matter what”. I am a mom to my sweet baby boy with another sweet boy on the way, who feels like I don’t know what the heck I am doing most days but I am figuring it out as I go. What I do know is I love being a mom and it’s the one job in life I know I am meant for. My family is my whole world and I truly feel like the luckiest woman in world to be blessed with my beautiful family. There was a long time in my life where I thought I would never find what I have today, so I do my best to be grateful and cherish every moment.

So after all of that what does B: mean to me and why am I on this journey? I recently had an “ah-ha” moment (this is a story for another time) that opened my eyes. I was not living in the moment and I was constantly waiting for the next life event to happen to full-fill me. I have lived my life striving to reach my next goal never truly enjoying the current season of life I am in. I turned thirty this past year and I realized I need to relax and embrace the season I am in and so the journey of B: begins.

I am looking forward to sharing our journey with all of you!

Your Friend,
