New York

I recently went back to New York after not visiting for 7 years! It was even more beautiful than I had remembered. I used to live there when I was first starting out as a model and I honestly cannot believe that my mom and dad let me go there by myself for so long! 

While I was in town I also finally got my hair cut after 4 months of not touching the roots! Zoe Rose at Arrojo Salon in SOHO, brought me back to a true brunette. The blonde was so damaged and split! I miss it though.

On my birthday I had a chef tasting with celebrity chef Brian Tsao at Mira Sushi after a long day of meetings, then stopped by The Spot Dessert Bar for one last indulgence. 

I'll be sharing more photos soon. xoxo

Love, Jourdan

Solar Bags are the Future

Hi Guys!

So I just have to share with you this amazing backpack that I just discovered, from a company in San Fransisco, called Birksun. They specialize in creating solar products that support the technology we all love so much.

Just leave the Birksun bag out in the direct sunshine for 20 minutes, then plug your favorite electronics like a phone or camera into the USB charging port located inside the bag.

I can't tell you how much this bag has made my life easier when traveling or adventuring! I constantly have power with me!

Go check out my favorite styles:

Spring Eyewear Collection

My newest campaign came out last week for Jacques Marie Mage Spring Eyewear Collection.

 It was a pleasure working with Designer Jerome Jacques Marie Mage, photographer Dimitri Coste, a great hair and make up team including Donald Simrock and Stylist/ Creative Director Alexis Sepkovic. 

My character was inspired by Nancy Cunard (pictured below).


My Skin Care Routine

My career keeps me busy these days and I don't have time to fuss over a complicated skin care routine that includes a whole set of products. I have gotten my skin care routine down to only two products. I love them both for the many benefits they add to my skin. They are mostly natural and very gentle for those of us with sensitive skin.

Step 1. Cleanser 

Why I love it:

  • Organic Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Hemp Oil, Jojoba Oil, Peppermint Oil
  • Fair Trade 
  • Animal Cruelty Free
  • Vegan 
  • Multiple uses

The coolness of the peppermint acts like a natural toner and shrinks up my pores. I feel like I have a clean slate after washing with this soap.

Step 2. Moisturize

I have been using this moisturizer for about 5 years now.

Why I love it:

  •  Improves scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone, aging and dehydrated skin.
  • Natural ingredients: Calendula Oil, Lavender Oil, Rosemary Oil, Chamomile Oil
  • Vitamins A  and E
  • I use it as my make up primer
  • Bio‑Oil is a member of Beauty Without Cruelty

I use this sparingly and massage it into my face and neck. The natural rose fragrance is light to those who are sensitive to the perfumes used in beauty products. I don't only use this on my face, but my legs and hips where I have stretch marks from growing pains. 

SHOPPING TIP: Before committing to a new skin care routine, buy travel size bottles of the products to try them out if you can't find samples. 

Hope you like them as much as I do.

Love,

Jourdan
