TheLivelyShowGiftofGiveaway

Today’s giveaway for the 2014 Week of Giving is all about giving some of my favorite things… to you!

The more I dive into the work I do, the more I feel best when I’m making sure that I’m giving as I receive.

And since I have’ve gotten so much love and support from you this year, and now it’s time that I send it right back at ya.

Today I’m giving one listener a collection of my favorite things from 2014.

Listen to the show to find out more about my favorite things and how to win them!

Today is the day before my 30th birthday(!), so I thought it would be fun to reflect on the 10 biggest lessons I learned in my 20′s.

And since last week’s “Mini Edition” of The Lively Show was such a big hit… I decided to share the lessons I’ve learned with you via another Mini Edition of The Lively Show!

I’m sharing the lessons I’ve learned concerning marriage, business, uncertainty, and cultivating a beautiful home. 

TheLivelyShowWithCarolineRector

Today’s Lively Show episode is the perfect blend of deep introspection, inspiration, practical how-to, and fun!

I’m talking with Caroline Rector of the minimalist fashion blog, Unfancy.

Caroline’s blog focuses on creating a “capsule wardrobe,” which – for her – means wearing the same 37 pieces (including shoes!) for three months at a time.

I knew I had to have her on the show to share the journey that brought her to the concept… and share her insights for those of us who would like to attempt a similar experiment in our own wardrobes.

This show is perfect for anyone interested in trying a creative wardrobe framework, simplifying, discovering their true style, or tackling difficult shopping issues.

 

NewPrintsAndGoldTattoosInTheShop

Sorry for the late post today! I have been working like crazy juggling everything with the new class launch, podcast, podcast editing, etc.

But I’m thrilled to share a project today that has been cooking behind the scenes over the past few weeks:

New prints for the shop – and GOLD intention tattoos!

TheLivelyShow-TaylorSterling Today on The Lively Show we are talking with Taylor Sterling, founder of The Glitter Guide.

The Glitter Guide is well-known for its popular daily lifestyle content, and Taylor’s own life and career often seems just as fascinating as the site itself.

In the show, we are talking with Taylor about her journey with GG and how motherhood has changed things for her personally and professionally now that her little eight-month-old lady, Miss Elodie, has entered her world.

This show is perfect for those looking for a real peek into the life of a busy work-at-home mom who is still learning how to juggle everything on her plate.  

IntroducingIntentionTattoos

A few months ago, I spent a week installing and completing the hotel lobby design project I’ve been working on for the past twenty months (psst: the big reveal is coming up on the blog next week!).

It was a 2,000+ square foot space that had a long ways to go before the grand opening party at the end of the week.

Construction crews, painters, electricians, and woodworkers were scurrying about asking me for opinions and directions. Meanwhile, I had all the styling and decorating to do, and most importantly my big plan was facing the test:

Would it look as good in real life as it did in my vision?

And: Would all of the interested parties – the owners, manager, sales team, and general public like what I spent almost two years creating?

No pressure or anything.

Needless to say, by the middle of that week I was running on empty in every way.

As I went on an early morning run before yet another (insane) workday, I started cry by the lake.

There were so many things out of my control, yet the responsibility for the success of the lobby design rested on my shoulders.

It all seemed like too much… until, I had a breakthrough:

throw out 100 things challenge

July 15th, 2014   |   ExfoliatingWardrobe

ThrowOut100ThingsChallenge I’m having an informal Chicago meet-up for dinner/drinks on Monday, July 21st @ 7:00pm — at one of my favorite spots in Lincoln Park!  If you would like to attend, please RSVP by emailing me at jess(at)with-intention.com by Sunday, July 20th.   : ) 


With the movers coming in less than two weeks(!), rather than packing, I’ve spent the last week focused on exfoliating items I don’t want to take with me to Austin. Though moving may never be a “simple affair,” having less stuff means less boxes. Less hassle. Less packing time. Less cost. Just less. So, this weekend I did what I always do: I did a Throw Out 100 110+ Things Challenge.

TheLivelyShowKendiSkeen

Today I have a fantastic, honest, and funny episode of The Lively Show for you!

I’m talking with Kendi Skeen, the face behind the popular fashion blog, Kendi Everyday, and the owner of a boutique called Bloom in McKinney, Texas.

We are chatting about wardrobes, where to spend your clothing budget, how to remix your wardrobe, and her career and business transitions.

Kendi has gone from a full-time job, to running her blog full-time, to opening a store, and recently to closing that store.

In this episode she shares candidly what she did right, what she did wrong, and what she’s learned from this experience. Plus, she’s sharing what she’s working on next.

This episode is perfect for anyone looking to improve their wardrobe, handle career transitions better, or start (and close) a business. 

 

NewIntentionNecklacesJessLively

Over the past few months, I’ve been working with Nichole of Acanthus Jewelry to bring back the most popular Jess LC collection of all time: the braille intention necklaces!

We are so proud to bring these to you – each necklace acts as a subtle reminder to Be Brave or Be Present throughout your day.

BePresentNecklace2 Simply rub the braille throughout your day to connect to your Values-based intention.

Each pendant also has the intention inscribed in the back as well.

NewShopHoly guacamole, guys.

Today I have a fun girl chat with Liz of Sequins and Stripes on The Lively Show.

Liz is a (successful) blogger, stylist, soon-to-be bride, and overall adorable person!

I’ve personally been friends with her (as well as a follower of her blog) for several years now. In fact, her taste has been a huge inspiration for my own style.

In the show, we talk about defining your style, the progression of Liz’s life and career from corporate to blogging and styling full-time, and there is a hefty dose of strategy advice when it comes to making an income through blogging.

So anyone looking to learn more about making money via blogging sponsorships and brand collaborations will love this episode!

 

In this episode you’ll find out about

 

  • The two “unsuccessful” blogs Liz started before Sequins and Stripes.
  • How she landed her first styling clients before S&S.
  • How to comb through your closet and determine which things to exfoliate.
  • A few little details about Liz’s upcoming wedding(!).
  • Liz’s approach to life through “little victories.”
  • How successful fashion bloggers foster connections and land dream projects with their favorite brands. (20:00)
  • How List transitioned financially from her full-time job to her styling business.
  • Liz’s biggest struggle in her business right now.
  • What Liz would say to someone just starting out.

gold shoe giveaway

December 20th, 2013   |   LifeWardrobeWineday Friday

GoldShoseGiveaway

To show my gratitude for your support throughout 2013, I have five gifts planned for you over the next five days!  There are no outside sponsors or companies associated with these gifts. They are simply from me, to you.

 

Guys, this week has been so much fun! I’ve kinda felt like an intentional Santa Claus giving out gifts everyday. It’s also a bit staggering to see all the mentorship applications, and workbook/PV Starter Kit downloads.

In honor of Wineday Friday, I am wrapping up the Week of Giving with a pair of gold flats! I cannot thank you guys enough for all of the comments and emails filled with gold shoe suggestions over the past few months.

After looking at what seemed like hundreds of gold flat options, I finally settled on the original pair from J.Crew factory that I thought would be a half size too small.

I took the plunge and purchased them despite the size and they ended up fitting perfectly!

While I was doing this shoe size dance, Carrie of Dream Green DIY, snagged some 8.5 gold ballet flats at her super special local J.Crew outlet for me, too.

GoldShoes2

I paid her back for the extra pair of gold shoes, but the 8.5′s are too loose for me.

Which means I now have a pair of gold J.Crew ballet flats for you!

(You’ll notice there is a black line through the J.Crew logo because these puppies are actually regular J.Crew flats sold at the outlet for much less than normal.)

If you want to snag these flats, check out the details below.

 

 

A Week of Giving Wrap Up

 

And a huge thanks to you all for being a part of the 2013 Week of Giving! I have been so blessed by your support over the past year and I hope that the things I shared this week can help you take 2014 to the next level.

And as always, thank you for reading and have a great holiday week/weekend!

Entries will close December 27th, and the winner will be selected on December 30th.
