Hi Guys, I know that I haven’t exactly been absent here on MML this November, but the truth is that certainly haven’t had the time to devote to it that I usually do. In the past (and ideally in the future), I spend up to half of my day working on MML related activities. And [...]
[image credit] Just in case you haven’t seen the Daily Candy Deal, check out the details here to snag 35% off all Jess LC goods. The discount ends on December 2nd (this Thursday) – so order your items now if you’d like to save some cash. (It’s also a good idea in general to order [...]
Good morning! I am excited to say that things have slowed down ever so slightly at Jess LC and I hope to have some more time this week to really get back in my favorite “thinking with intention” MML groove. In the meantime, I wanted to share an idea I had this weekend while decorating [...]
Happy Thanksgiving! Just in case you are looking to do some Black Friday shopping, here is a bit of holiday ordering info. We recommend ordering any Jess LC jewelry for the holidays before December 15th since we hand assemble each piece and shipping can take longer than usual during the holiday season.
Kelsey author of the Captial Barbie with her take on November’s Do’s and Don’ts. Kelsey’s November Dos and Don’ts List Hey there lovebugs.Â Welcome to the holiday season!Â Fall is upon us and before you know it Santa will be right around the corner.Â But before he gets here I wanted to do a special [...]
Good morning! I hope you are doing well. I will admit I’ve been a bit MIA here on MML. But please know that I’m doing the best I can to keep driving Jess LC and devote as much time to MML as possible. This holiday season has already launched into totally new level of business [...]
I can’t believe this will be my last Dream Reporter post!!Â It’s hard to believe that only 6 months ago I started this journey.Â (well, 6 months plus years of dreaming, researching and getting up the nerve to actually do this!)Â I’m going to miss our weekly chats!Â You all have been the most amazing [...]
Just want to give a quick shout out/reminder that today and tomorrow Melissa and I will be at the Gazebo Holiday Market at the Chicago Cultural Center (78 W. Washington) for a Jess LC trunk show. Details here. And enjoy the newest (and best) holiday commercial I’ve seen this year.
(Update: Printer has been claimed!) In honor of my old series, The End of the Week Exfoliation (each week for two years I got rid of one item in my home that I didn’t need, use, or love), I’m giving away a color printer I no longer need. With my new assistants, Melissa and Kat, [...]
Jessica was an incredible person. She was kind, full of integrity, and helped people worldwide live a life with intention. She took ordinary circumstances and turned them into something world changing. She created a sense of power, love, and intention that has shaped and reshaped the lives of women across the globe. Her outgoing, friendly, [...]
While looking at the MML stats I’ve noticed that my mom’s Pumpkin Dip has been getting quite a bit of hits through Google (people are probably searching “healthy pumpkin dessert”). So I thought it might be a good idea to re-share the dessert since Thanksgiving is right around the corner. What I personally love about [...]
My first piece of advice when making under a home is to envision what you want your space to look and feel like. Then, once that vision is defined, the next step is to exfoliate the items that do not fit the future vision. For me, artwork is difficult to exfoliate. I have purchased a [...]
Today I’m guest posting over at Sacramento Street about the 10 things that make me happy. Since I talk mostly about exfoliating stuff I no longer need, use, or love here on MML, it was a joy to write about the 10 things that I do need, use, and love in my apartment. Hop on [...]
The past four weeks have been such a whirlwind. Because of which, I’ve taken two days to rest and I am now doing the best I can to “keep calm and carry on.” But the truth is that things are running at a whole new level. We are still filling our online orders as fast [...]
Hi everyone!Â I have to say it’s been interesting, to say the least, the past 2 weeks of being open.Â I have to admit that I haven’t fully embraced the idea that I’m actually a full-time business owner.Â I still feel like I’m just playing one on TV (well, really the interweb!)Â I think that’s [...]
Good morning! Today’s DYL features Taylor of the fashion and lifestyle blog, Sterling Style. I admit that I don’t read that many fashion blogs, but Taylor’s has definitely caught my eye and I’ve loved following along in the past few months. Her California style and interest in fitness and Crossfit add such a unique flavor [...]
Oh my goodness what a week it has been. I have been so thankful for all of the wonderful MML contributors this week like Alaina, Kendi, and of course, Piper. While I’ve been rather MIA here, I’ve been hustling with Jess LC big time. Our Daily Candy feature last week has flooded us with hundreds [...]
Thank you so much for the great response to this new Midnight Hustler series! I’m excited to expand on this aspect of “designing a life with intention” more in the upcoming months. Today I have picked our very own Dream Reporter‘s brain for her story on jumping the corporate ship to start One Sydney Road [...]
When it comes to questions about designing a life with intention, I often get asked about how to launch a small business dream while juggling an un-fulfilling day job. For most people, the answer is to grow the business on the side while working a 9-5 position until the dream business is profitable enough to [...]
I don’t even know where to start…other than to say I’m just absolutely overwhelmed by all the lovely comments, posts, tweets & emails you all have sent and posted…I’m just blown away by the support you’ve sent my way.Â I can’t even begin to thank you for that – it felt like confirmation that all [...]
Today I have an exciting new DYL interview to share! I tapped Alaina’s shoulder of Live Creating Yourself to share her life intentions. Though she’s obviously got an incredible talent for graphic design and is even responsible for naming the now popular Rue Magazine (among many other contributions), I asked her to do this DYL [...]
The time has come for S.E. Minegar to host the Jess LC 100 Kisses Ambassador Giveaway! The winner of S.E.’s giveaway gets $100 of Jess LC store credit. Hop on over to Ensalada to comment and enter before November 9th. Good luck!
(Update: we ended up clocking in at 122 orders!) Yesterday was one of those days. One of those days where your wildest imagination cannot keep up with reality. As you can see above, a feature in Daily Candy yesterday led a remarkable amount of people to Jess LC. And rather than tuck this milestone under [...]
Today I’m chatting over at Tory Johnson’s (yep, the national television contributor) Spark and Hustle as a Daring Doer. I explain what I think is essential to a bustling online business, what keeps me up at night, and my must-read sources for business and design inspiration. Read on.
Our beloved Dream Reporter, Piper has launched One Sydney Road!! Hop Jump on over to One Sydney Road to start shopping the long awaited lifestyle goods site lovingly created by Piper. It’s so incredible to see her hard work become reality. After following her journey for the past twenty-three weeks it’s hard to see what [...]
I know, I know. I just changed the color of MML in September to pink (I had a pretty sizable girly moment) and now I’m switching it again-Â this time to coral. Originally, back in January of 2009, I chose coral for the MML logo and Jess LC was a celery green. Then this April [...]
