{Press} InStyle’s ‘Women in the Workplace’ Interview with Jessie Holeva

jessie holeva-instyle-magazine

One good thing after another!  I was so excited to work with InStyle magazine on their InStyle Essentials Perfect Fit tour when they came to my neighborhood not too long ago. And now, I’m talking about my job on their blog. Pinch me. This year has been the craziest ever, ever so far and none of it would be possible without the blog (which turned 3 this October – I know, we should have celebrated, but we will when the redesign launches – shhh!). But  seriously, I’m so grateful that my passion has become my job – surreal and fuels me to keep working harder.

Read the full interview over at the InStyle Essentials Tumblr.

Oh, my outfit may look familiar, as the pics they used are from a recent blog photo shoot.

Trend Hungry’s New York Fashion Week Photo Diary


Last Wednesday I trekked to NYC for a fashion-filled day at the end of NYFW. I got to go backstage and find out about all the beauty trends strutting down the runway straight from the hair, makeup, and manicure masters themselves! The Trend Hungry NYFW backstage interviews will be up later this week! I seriously cannot wait to share with you, but for now backstage pics will have to do.

1. Daisy Fuentes

I got to talk to the head of Maybelline Japan & the lead nail artist for the day. You will LOVE what Daisy went with for her model’s beauty style. Plus, all the products used fro makeup and nails are uber budget friendly. We also go a sneak peek at a new Maybelline product that comes out this November (hint: it’s pictured!!). We’ll give you more details this week!

My friend Courtney stepped in as camera woman for the day.


Polish II. The models wore it and it’s only $4 a bottle! My friend Rose from the brand invited me backstage  – thanks Rose!


2. Mordekai by Ken Borochov

The avant-garde designer behind luxe accessories line was a dream to talk to. His pieces have been donned by Lady GaGa, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Rita Ora and many more. Can you see why the celebs love his pieces?


Pink makeup to match the accessories. You like?



Celebrity hairstylist Edward Tricomi was there for hair and gave details on healthy hair at home. Video interview will be up later this week!

3. Spanx Press Preview

I absolutely love this brand. I got to interview the founder Sara Blakely this past winter when Spanx invited me to their grand opening press event at King of Prussia Mall.  While in NYC I swung by their popup showroom to see what’s new with Spanx … and there’s quite a lot.  Shapewear pants – yes please!


4. T. Tandon

This event was at the Empire hotel, as was the Spanx event. Even Joan Rivers and the Fashion Police team were at the Empire. This brand may not be considered budget friendly, but we can certainly take inspiration for spring 2014 from this tea-party chic style.

5. DBA Gifting Suite

I love finding out about the newest in fashion and beauty (obviously!) so I can’t wait to put my new goodies from the #DBALovingThis Suite to the test.

Behind The Blog: Inside The Body Shop Grand Opening

Jessie Holeva hosting The Body Shop Grand Opening at King of Prussia Mall

Oh Happy Day! Last week I played hostess with the mostest at The Body Shop’s Grand Opening at The King of Prussia Mall. And let me tell you, we had a blast! It was a packed house with free makeovers and giveaways every 30 minutes – obviously the perfect pairing for a stellar time! I got to meet lots of my readers (love you guys!!), award fabulous prizes to our lucky winners, and hang out with lots of lovely ladies using The Body Shop’s gorgeous space as our beauty playground. A day with the girls to play with makeup and get beautified? Um, yes please!

We snacked on cookies and Vita Coco and my new favorite, Coco Cafe (you gotta try it!). And don’t let me forget about the giveaways, because guess what! They continued after the event so special congrats to Susan Hoffman, Denise Hartman, Lakisha Harvey, Sylvia Sahwell.

Check out some of the pics from our fabulous time!

Let’s Pretend Christmas Isn’t Over, Cool?

Merry Christmas! This post is a little late due to some technical difficulties, but it’s better late than never. Aside from crying for an hour (I don’t deal well with technical difficulties) I had a fabulous holiday! I got to visit my parents. We had a white Christmas. My mom made my favorite meal  – chicken parm, hers is seriously the best ever! And my family had a dance party in the kitchen with my boyfriend bringing the best moves, some Justin Timberlake-esque spins and fancy footwork. Continue reading…
