I started my blog when I turned 25. I was working endless hours at a corporate job, and my boyfriend at the time (now husband) was being deployed to Afghanistan for 11 months. I wanted to add a little bit of spice back into my life and do 25 things I had never done before while I was 25 years old. I went skydiving, cliff jumping, anonymously paid of Christmas layaways and so much more. It was an exhilarating year that reminded me why I love living this beautiful and adventurous life.
I kept a blog of everything I was doing so one day when I was 50, I could look back on my 25th year and remind myself that I was once cool. My blog organically grew in the process, and it turned into where I am today. So you could say, I accidentally stumbled into this career, but I am truly beyond grateful for it.
Which 3 fashion items are most important in your wardrobe?
My three most important fashion items in my wardrobe are a good pair of cut off jean shorts, a basic white tee, and a maxi dress. I always opt for comfort and accessorize to make comfort look chic.
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
I’m a self proclaimed terrible foodie. I LOVE a good meal, but when I travel I am all about the adventure, the scenery and seeing all I can in a new country or city. There have been multiple times that I lost track of time in a new surrounding and opted to grab a meal on the go so I could keep exploring more.
Is there any food or drink you don’t take?
I am not a very picky eater at all. If available, fresh fruits and steamed veggies are always a favorite! Or Thai food.
Which is your most exotic travel experience so far?
My most exotic travel experience would definitely be Mongolia. It was unlike anywhere I have ever been. Best of all, it was all so untouched and authentic. One of my favorite parts of travel is meeting and talking to locals. I love soaking up every bit of culture I can and Mongolia was so culture rich!
Do you have any other hobbies and interests?
I think it is so important to have hobbies in life! I love to run, listen to good music and being around positive and joyful people. I also love a good craft! Anything that lets my creativity freely flow is always a huge hit in my book.
What do you not get about the opposite sex?
This question made me chuckle. One thing I don’t understand about the opposite sex (Well, using my husband as the example. Love you, though!) is the ability to not enjoy throwing pillows!! They’re one of my favorite things to shop for, and one of my husband’s least favorite things to have! Haha!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Jasmine. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
I think people are most sexy when they are confident in who they are. You shouldn’t have to “try” to be sexy. The right person will find you most sexy when you’re being you.
