In an effort to help you get to know the #GlamFam better, we’re shining the spotlight on our beloved publishers. First up, Jenn Rager, The Stylish Housewife:
How long have you been in the #GlamFam?
A little over a year now.
What’s your favorite part about being in the network?
Not only have I been able to attend fabulous events and meet some of my favorite bloggers but I’ve also had the privilege of working with some of my favorite brands!
What is The Stylish Housewife all about?
The Stylish Housewife is a fashion & beauty blog. You can expect to find outfit inspiration, beauty product reviews, where to shop features and more!
What prompted you to start blogging?
I started blogging after I decided to quit my job in the financial services industry to become a stay at home mom. I was inspired by Kendi Everyday’s “30 x 30 remix your wardrobe challenge” since I was still trying to fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes and was going to be working with a smaller budget. I had no idea that I would ever be partnering with major brands let alone making any money from blogging.
What are some of your favorite fashion or beauty trends right now?
Pastels, florals & bold prints! I am READY for Spring!
Where do you find the best online deals?
I use ShopStyle, StyleSpotter & Retail Me Not.
Is there a hairstyle you’ve always wanted to try but have been afraid to?
OMBRE! I have a LOT of grey hair so am at the salon EVERY 3 weeks. So unfortunately when I try to have dark roots on purpose, I end up with a grey, brown, then blonde ombre. Not quite the look I’m going for!
What’s your go-to lip shade?
Oh my goodness, I’ve been wearing a variation of the same shade of lipstick since high school! For the last few years it’s been Lancome Lip Liner in “Bronzelle”, “Fairest Nude” by L’Oreal, topped with “Beige” (otherwise known as Linda Evangelista’s color) by L’Oreal with a swipe of Revlon’s Colorstay Mineral Lipgloss #500. It’s a process. LOL.
Do you have a signature scent?
I wore Nanette Lepore perfume for YEARS but just recently switched to Roses de Chloe. I am obsessed with anything rose scented at the moment.
What are your some of your favorite blog reads?
What are some of your blogging goals? Do you see yourself blogging five or ten years from now?
To be honest, I cannot imagine NOT blogging now. It is such a part of my everyday life. I would like to collaborate with more brands & bloggers and continue to grow my readership. Also, I take all of my own pics with a tripod & remote and would love to finally take a photography class!
