Just because I wasn't blogging this past holiday season doesn't mean I wasn't up to other things. I've had the honor of being a part of some really cool shows and sites recently and want to share what I've been up to!
In November, I volunteered to be in the Seattle Goodwill Glitter Gala's runway show. This year's theme for the show was "Through the Woods" a fairy tale depicting a metaphor for the journey overcoming adversity that many who go through Goodwill's programs experience. I was in the Dark Forest segment, where we depicted witches and wolves. To me, this was the perfect night to channel two of my favorite bad Bs - Bellatrix LeStrange from Harry Potter, and Beyonce. The amazing team at Salon Circa totally transformed me into a Filipina Bellatrix - which is a look I've been wanting to do for Halloween for years! Goodwill raised a record amount of fundraising that night, and I was so grateful to be a part of it.

In December, I joined the Young Female Entrepreneurs for their weekly Thursday live chat, talking about everything from consulting to content. It was thirty minutes that just flew by! I also may have shown off my cool outfit of sweatpants at the end :)
I was mad humbled when Emily of The Spoiled Life, an L.A.-based lifestyle site, reached out to me to do a LifeStyler interview for them. She came over and took these beautiful photos of my personal assistant Spike and I in our natural habitat/office.

Forever thankful for the love and support you've given Fresh Jess, so much that these doors have opened for me. I've got a couple more things lined up before the end of the month - stay tuned! :)
