Where to begin ?!?!?!?

No makeup- just mascara.. Notice my much smaller lips ?!?!?





It's been a long time since I have posted. I was in Greece for 3 weeks with my husband as most of you know and then as soon as we arrived back home we have been non stop with work.















My husband recently launched a new station- channel 64 in the LA area called KILM- Filmon (formally KHIZ) . There are a ton of really cool talk shows with amazing hosts - Marianna Hewitt, Raylene Bartolocci, Natalie Nunn, Xixi Yang, Kato Kaelin, Andy Dick, Janice Dickinson and many more. Whats cool about his channel is that it is completely interactive. During the shows they take callers, you can vote online, even cam up and broadcast on Battlecam.com which airs at night. I am so proud of him for doing what he loves and giving some of my dear friends the opportunity to get on TV and live their dreams.

Along with the TV channel, Lilly and I have been swamped in the office with orders. Our swimmer line has had an amazing year and I can proudly say our  merger has been a massive success. We are getting ready to go into our "down" season which gives us time to redesign our website, concentrate on 2013 collections and just have some time for ourselves.

I was so excited to get to Greece and be able to cycle the 17mile island 3 times a week at least, however, it was so damn hot I wasn't able to do any type of exercise for the 3 weeks I was there. Thank god I ate clean and healthy- the food there is so amazingly fresh. When I got home I was jet lagged for a good week and a half and so I finally got into the gym last week for the first time in about a month. It's been some time since I posted my workout routine and diet- and since it changes often I will do an updated post soon, I know many of you have been asking and waiting.

I have been feeling a little down lately; depressed even. Yes, a lot of exciting things are going on but my mind and thinking haven't been the most positive. Out of nowhere I received an email from a girl telling me that she started reading the book the secret and how she is following its teachings; thinking positively and manifesting the things she wants in life. I wrote her back thanking her for the email, that it had reminded  me how powerful positive thinking can be and how one negative thought can multiply into many negative thoughts causing stress in ones life. Since that email, I have started thinking positively again and getting my mind back to how it use to be. It's easy to fall off and forget sometimes, and even those who preach to others need a little uplifting every once in a while.
So to Teryn and Yana - Thank you.

I don't know if you know this or not but in January of this year I gave up eating meat. Its been a good 8 months since and I haven't looked back; I still eat fish so I would be considered a Pescatarian. I noticed since giving up meat I became very tired and lazy which is so not me, so last week I went to the Dr's to give blood to test all of my levels, to see what blood type I am because I want to look into Blood Type Diet, and they also ran an allergy test to see if I am allergic to any foods and so on. I can't wait to get my results back and see whats going on in my body.  I also went to Whole foods and picked up a bunch of vitamins; my last multi vitamin was iron free = pointless for me lol. Ill update once I get the results in and explain more about the Blood Type Diet. I hope it doesn't say my body is suppose to eat meat... Yuck!

I think that's about it for now. Ive had my hair and makeup done for a few events by the wonderful and talented Etienne Ortega and I cannot wait to film a tutorial with him. Below are some of the looks we have done together.  I also included a short workout video that my trainer Lauren Kern and I recorded a while ago.  We plan on filming a lot more but it's hard to film around people in the gym.
Any questions please leave a comment :)

Thanks again for checking out my blog, sorry its been so long. I needed a mental break- people can be so mean.

This video is " one round" of exercises I do with Lauren in 1 hour. Depending on how fast I move we will do about 2-3 rounds of exercises which consist of 3-5 different workouts,  3 times each, 15 - 25 reps. I hope that makes sense.  More videos and diet info coming soon.

  13. I couldnt image you depressed, is it because the mean things people say about you online :(
    There strangers and you blessed dont be sad

  14. Nice workout Jenn,have you considered private work out with the trainer at your home, for these exercises - you even do not need the gym at all.if you make your trainer come home there is always nobody around and you can make a video without getting worried.take care

  15. Jen you are so stunning!! Your such an inspiration and give me so much motivation to keep fit!
    I just wanted to know what size is your cartier watch? I love it!!!

  16. Your house party hair was gorgeous!! :) Excited to hear about what you're filming! I'm glad to hear your not dwelling on the negative side, your life is so blessed it's a shame to feel sad for any minute of it. I know your a fan of quotes so here's a good one:
    “There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.” ― Albert Einstein

  17. When Etienne Ortega does your makeup, what does he use on your skin? Could you list up the diff products? The makeup is so amazing! Esp. foundation, bronzer, contouring & highlighting. Do you know exactly what he used in the pic where he has put on the dark brown contouring, but not yet blended out?

    Oh, and in the most popular Instagram pic, what do you have on your lips and eyes? Stunning pic <3

  18. Wow you know Gretchen Rossi!!! I love her on Real Housewives!

  19. Aww Jenn I am glad you are feeling better babe! It made me really sad to read this bc of the part where you point out that people can be really mean. I know it's hard not to let harsh comments get to you but remember you can't change the whole world but you can change yourself. By that I don't mean to change who you are bc you my love are fabulous! I mean change the way you react to negative comments. You are such a strong, intelligent, classy woman that so many of us admire. Continue to shine! I also don't understand how people can be hurtful when you are so helpful and down to earth! Any question I have asked you via twitter and you have always replied :) You don't need to take time out of your day and do these blogs posts full of valuable info or post a vid on youtube of workouts that you do....but you do and people are so ungrateful. I know I personally respect and admire you and am so grateful for all your wonderful insight on things. Luv ya girl!

  25. You are beautiful! You have achieved what most girls dream about. Unfortunately, jealousy is a natural instinct for girls because they do not want to be left behind as the ugly duckling. Ignore all the haters. I look forward to your blog posts and thank you for sharing your makeup tips!

    Side note: Whenever I go into Intermix I get sad because I can't afford most of the things. Any chance you can show some more affordable outfits from a more less expensive store or at least show us what you would pick out on the websites?

    1. I am genuinely curious, what has Jennifer achieved except married a rich man? Maybe I am missing something? And if that's what most girls dream about then there is no hope for society.

  28. Jennifer,

    No more long breaks with your blog! We all missed you! I hope you had a great time in Greece!

    I have been following your blog for I think almost 2 years! It's weird to say but I COMPLETELY relate to you and your life. Except I am here on the East Coast in Boston.

    Listen, I know that a lot of people can't understand why someone with a "perfect" life could be sad, lonely or depressed. BUT I totally get it!
    ( I have actually been dealing and feeling that way lately)
    I feel the same way sometimes and even my own family and friends can't grasp the concept.

    Even though we both have everything in the world we could ever want or image we still go through the same types of fights, relationship struggles, life issues that everyone else goes through. We just do it on a larger scale.

    People (men, women, everyone etc. etc.) will always be jealous, mean, and hurtful. Unfortunately, that will never change. And honestly the more successful, or happy you are the more people will TALK and say awful untruthful things.

    Trust and lean on Alki. My fiance is my rock. Keeps me humble, grounded and gives me the strength every day to conquer the Mean Girls of the World! :)

    You will be ok! And I promise it will get easier to deal with! Manifest good things, and people coming into your life! It works!
    ( At least I tell myself that every day :)

    or if all else fails for the day, F*ck it. Go shopping! Nothing beats retail therapy ;)

    From one lucky girl to another!
    Sending you my love from Boston!
    xoxo

  29. YAY! Finally a new post. I'm a new fan, and I've been checking religiously every day waiting for a new post. Seriously, you're absolutely gorgeous, so down to Earth, and incredibly kind... those three qualities don't usually come together, so you've got the whole package!

    So jealous that you got to hang with Gretchen... she's my favorite OC Housewife! Are you filming a reality show? That would be amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hi Jennifer, I love your blog! I know you probably can't tell us what it is exactly that you're filming, but that's fine! it keeps us all waiting for the answer :p I am really really really excited for the updated closet tour!!! I like how you did the last one with more detail on your shoes and bags, but I do always like looking at cute dresses, etcetera! Although, to be honest, you could film an hour long closet tour and I would definitely watch the entire thing more than once. Just wanted to say, LOVE your blog, love what you've been doing, and you're doing sucha good job! thanks so much for the amazing fashion advice (even though my credit card hates me by now I'm sure;} ) so thank you so much!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. You are SO beautiful! I'm sorry you've been getting hate :( understandable that it can bring you down sometimes but please realize you have so many more fans and people who love you and adore you =)

  34. Your natural lips look a million times better! Can't wait to watch the workout vid. Also, I was a vegetarian for a year, vegan for three months after that... I LOVE the ideology behind it, but I noticed my body seemed to go downhill a little bit too. I wasn't anemic, and wasn't choosing the healthiest options (which played a role, I'm sure), but once I added meat back in - small portions only a few times a week - I felt and looked loads better. I hope you figure out what stole your mojo, lol. I am a Type O so.... since you are reading about the BTD, you know what that means, lol!! I thought it was an interesting coincidence. Still bummed when I eat meat though, so I keep it to a minimum. Good luck!!

  40. hey jennifer! I just wanted to say thank you so much for sharing all your secrets with us! You are so beautiful inside and out and have really turned my life around. I was feeling so stressed and down about myself and by reading your blog(also Lilly's blog) you ladies gave me a hope that i could turn my life around if i put my all into it. Now i am in such a good place and joined Equinox gym and lost 15 pounds so far! Im finally feeling good about myself and my life and am more motivated to be successful and live each day to its fullest. My 21st birthday is this thursday and im going to celebrate it big in vegas and feel amazing =)

    Wishing you love, happiness, health, and success.

  50. I have been following your blog since 2010 and I love it.You seem very sweet and honest. I knew that when more people started noticing you on twitter and your blog that there would be a lot of nasty jealous people.It always amazes me that people feel that they can comment about what you look like and how you should donate to charity instead of shopping. I read your blog for the clothes, purses, shoes and the amazing pictures of you. Its none of my business about your finances and thats not why i read your blog.I love to see your shoes and handbags.Asking the price of clothes and shoes is one thing,but your money is your business.I am shocked by some of the comments that people say. I just wanted you to know that I think you are beautiful and you have a body that most would kill for. Its sad that people would rather try to tear you down than say something kind. You are amazing, dont let the haters get you down.

  57. Dear Jennifer,

    Keep your chin up we all have off days! Part of being a normal human is having different emotions, its okay to sometimes feel down, don't be too hard on yourself you are doing great. I admire you for being such a humble kind individual who happens to have a privileged lifestyle. Your blogs brighten up my day and you write as though all of your followers are your friends, not just admirers. I too follow the secret, and sometimes its very hard for me to stay focused on positive outcomes, however if I start listing things that are going well and that I am grateful for, I honestly feel rejuvenated and in a much better mood :)I hope today is a better day for you!

  59. Dear Jennifer,

    I have been reading your blog for a while now and I have to say it is something I really look forward to reading and staying caught up on. You ARE a gorgeous person- inside and out. Please don't let people who have never even met you ruin your light with their words. It's not worth it. You are extremely blessed but you also work hard for your goals and you inspire so many women out there. You give more than you realize and you need to remember to be good to yourself as well... just keep doing your thing and love yourself.

    I had a random question for you! No matter what I do I can't get my legs/body to look as flawless and shiny as yours! haha Do you mind sharing your secret with us? I tend to cover my legs up these days because I don't feel good about the way they have been looking so it would mean a lot to get some tips!

    Thanks again for everything you do! All the best!

  67. Hey Jennifer!
    Keep your head up love! I've been dealing with cyber bullying and people writing untrue things about my fiance and I online. People can be so mean and at first I was devastated/humiliated by the lies they were stating.

    Anyway, I saw an interview with Sharon Osborne where she was asked how she dealt with untrue/mean things said and written in the press.

    She said the only things said that can hurt her are from people she KNOWS and LOVES. EVERYONE ELSE DOESN'T MATTER!! It just clicked for me. Focus on your true friends, family and loved ones...in the end they are the only people who matter. Sending you love and Light!

  69. Hey Jen, I just wanted to let you know that you are an inspiration to women all over the world. I stumbled onto your blog over a month ago and you have no idea how much reading your posts have changed my outlook on life. I'm sad knowing that you're sad but you have to remember, when you have "haters" it means there are many people who are threatened by your good/positive nature and beauty. It's unfortunate but they will always try to bring you down. Stay postive, stay healthy and concentrate on YOU. The negative words said by others is just noise...you know who you are...always remember that!

  70. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do a makeup blog or video!! I'm dying to know the products you use to contour. Those cheekbones are gorgeous. You look amazing as usual! Thanks for the share love!

    ReplyDelete
  71. Your lips are so lovely without fillers! It makes you look so much younger and prettier than all the fish faced women in Beverly Hills! Don't lose perspective - to the rest of the world, the plastic/cosmetic surgery look that LA people go for is horrendous! I only say this because you have natural looks that many people TRY to achieve with surgery. Good to have you back and it's okay to feel down once in a while - life's like that. Sometimes down moments help us enjoy the happier ones more.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Jen! If you get a reality show I will die! So fabulous!

    And forget the haters. This is YOUR life and you're living it exactly how you want to! Maybe if they were doing the same...instead of lurking your blog...they'd feel better about their own!

  76. Hey there, I have tried the blood type diet my self, but I always go back to just eating gluten free, I feel great when gluten is out of my diet! Also I am sorry to hear you have been feeling down lately, I hope you don't take this the wrong way, but I have periods when I feel down myself, and there should be no reason why, because even though I don't live a glamourous high style life like I wish I did, I still have a great life! I have a husband that loves me and we have been happily married for 12 years with two beautiful children! But still I feel down sometimes. and its nice to know that you are human to and have your down points. We watch your blog and wish we had your life and in the long run we are all the same in our feelings, And its reassurance to me that when I think, if I just had her life I would be so happy, how silly is that. Oh my gosh I have been rambling on and I dont even think I am making any sense in what I am trying to say? Bottom line, is its a nice reminder to me that you are human to and not some fantasy person on a blog! With that said I still love reading your blog and imagining such a glamourous life! xoxoxox you seem beautiful inside and out!

  78. Hi Jennifer,

    If you're feeling tired you should either start eat proteins or stop eating sugar, wheat and so on.

    I converted to RAW-food and lost weight and muscles in a way that I burned out physically and mentally. I got so tired. I am a blodtype O which means I am a "hunter". My brain thinks I can do without meet, but my body craves for them proteins. If we don't eat meat it is very difficult for us to gain the right amount of proteins elsewhere. We would really have to go into details with it.

    Detoxing by eating meat, vegetables, salat a little bit of fruit (plus healthy olive oils to keep the blood sugar balanced) taking mineral and vitamins and drinking water combined with the blodtype-food (which vegetables to eat or not) is what works for me. But I NEVER EAT WHEAT AND CEREAL AND DEFF NOT DAIRY products because it makes me tired and it fucks my skin up badly!!!
    A hint: If you wanna avoid cellulitis - you shouldn't eat wheat, sugar, dairy products due to hormones and lectins witch messes up your gut and therefore also skin (cuz the human is create from the inside out)
    It's a whole new world but we aren't all the same so we really gotta give our body what it needs in order to feel and look good. We can tell a lot of symptoms just by observing how our body feels and reacts when eating certain things.

    - Listening to what our body tells us is the most powerful tool we got. Sometimes it can be hard though because we are born into a certain lifestyle eating a certain food or our surroundings eat and drink things that aren't nesecarrily good for us.

    I've been there so I know how frustrating it is not having the energy, feeling moody and so on!!! I'm glad that you take tests and guidance it's the only way that really works!!! I hope you find some inspiration in my words and that you find your way <3

    And remember: No one can ever make you feel shitty / negative unless you give them the power to do so. Only you know the truth; what's right for you and your life and what works for you. Other peoples opinions are just opinions - you don't have to give let ten control or influence you by giving them the power of a meaning. It's just a meaning and so what? What's important is what YOU feel about yourself and that the people close to you thinks, feel and believe. Nothing else is just opinions... If I call you a purple basketball you would think I'm crazy right, cuz you know you're not a purple basketball. But If I call you a bitch, ugly, stupid, selfish or any other world that most people don't like you probably would be offended and if you hear these words many times you will start to questioning whether you really are all these words?! And sometimes we begin to believe that we are all these things. Truth is. Sometimes we are. Sometimes we are ugly, sometimes we make mistakes and say stupid things. And we need to find peace with the words. Sometimes it's good go be a bitch or selfish. That's a part of life to get what we want. We have to OWN these feelings in order to set ourselves free. So if people are mean we're not afraid of the words but we still don't let the words get to us in a self-destructive way. Cuz we know WHO WE ARE DEEP INSIDE and peoples opinion don't matter to us. There will always be people who we can't reach. But don't take part in their fight in life. If people are constantly meeting others up or talking trash it says more about them than it does about us. Remember that what people do or say in life reflects their own inner state, it's all about them - how you are making them feel. It's not even about you. But their making it look so so they have someone to blame for their own hurt feelings.
    You don't have to be less just because others envy you or think you're too much. Be the light you are for others to shine too!

    Love from Europe, Denmark!

  80. You are looking amazing in these photos! I say this in the nicest way possible, but DON'T use the fillers! It ages you so much! You are beautiful without it!

    I love the retro waves you're wearing in some of the photos and the dresses from Intermix are super cute, too.

    Hi Jennifer,

    This is a little random, but hear me out! I've been reading/following for a long time now, and you are gorgeous in all your photos...but the ones Alki takes are always the best ones. I think you know this too! He captures the love you feel for him, and your 'inner self' seems to really shine in the shots he takes. The photo is no longer just a photo of a beautiful woman - he brings out your kindness and sweetness, and honestly I think the Alki-taken shots are always the sexiest too!! (from a female perspective, anyways!!!)

    I would *love* to see a Have Faith shoot in a editorial/high fashion style with you modelling and Alki behind the camera. I think it would really elevate the brand's image and hopefully thus increase your market! And selfishly I'd just love to see you in such a shoot! - I would loooove to see a dreamy, maybe slightly retro, less structured photo set.

    You're lovely, and I'm a big fan of you - if it helps, realise that the haters are just projecting their own insecurities on to you. You aren't doing *anything* wrong in your life, and you have NOTHING to be sorry for. You are a beautiful, sweet, and hard working woman who is generous enough to share her life with her handsome, strong, and loving man with other people. Nice/normal people who view your blogs/photos/videos etc appreciate your openness and 'realness'!. Haters project their insecurities onto you - they are insecure about their lack of looks/'things'/love/security and thus they take it out on someone who does. It's the same thing as mean kids teasing the smart kid at school - none of them want to be dumb, they just don't want the smart kid to be smarter than them!! You're not going to get hate from people who are secure in themselves, because they're in a position where they can appreciate other people's blessings because they have their own!

    Love your work, stay strong - a fan in Australia! xxx

  84. Dear Jen,
    That mad me sad when you said people can be so mean. You are so lovely and sweet, it makes me wonder why anyone would want to be mean to you. There are some people with so much hate for the world and themselves that the only way they can feel good about themselves is to try to bring others down. I am an attractive girl (not to sound vain) but I am and I have had girls be mean to me for no good reason at all. I have learned that the best way to "get them back" is to ignore them and just smile and continue being happy. I am sure you already know this but, I'm just saying. Anyways, I follow you on Instagram..my name on there is mariah_latina I have just became a recent fan of yours and I just love your blogs and your videos. Good luck with all your up and coming success. You are so beautiful on the inside that is shines right through your eyes and makes you sparkle. I can tell you are special :)
    Take care,
    Mariah :)

  90. Hey Jennifer,

    First off - you're a lovely and beautiful girl! Your blog is really down to earth and it's great to see someone achieve so much.

    I've read you did/do 'the secret' and I'm wondering when you did it - what kind of things did you try to attract? and how did you visualize it? I'm trying to do it and blocking negative thoughts can be a pain.

    Your answer would be hugely appreciated :)

    Much love,
    Elle

  94. Aw Jennifer,
    I'm so excited for you and Lilly to be filming and soon will be apart of TV world!!!! I've always loved the opportunity to be able to watch you guys and see your lives like that, but this means everyone will soon know who you guys are! I hope it doesnt change you guys. More and more people are already finding out about you two everyday, I can't imagine the craziness when your stardom blows up though these shows! it's a bit mindboggling and I feel a slight hint of fan jealousy hehe
    I love the personal feeling you and lilly give your fans actually, with instagram posts and personal stories on blogs etc, so I hope that doesn't change either cus I feel like TV land is gonna take you away from us gals who knew you two first before the mass media did!!!
    <3 <3 Love you guys
    Ps. Lol I still remember when I first discovered you, though The Spin Crowd episode w/ you and Alki. Look where youve gone now! Even more so, you were a promo model like me and you had your entire life changed - THAT is a big transformation... Lucky dream life!! I live vicariously through you hun lol. <3!

  99. I wonder if you could do a blog post on how you apply the Secret to your life and maybe give a few practical examples of how it has worked to manifest the things you want. I'm trying to get into the Law of Attraction and it's just not working for me, so it would be so great to hear a few examples and anecdotes from you. Really like your blog, you are fabulous! :-)

  100. Hi Jennifer! I recently started following you on instagram & reading your blog I want to congratulate you on your beautiful baby! As I was reading this I thought of the saying "the grass isn't always greener on the other side" I am a 22 year old girl l, I'm a student & work full time. I have been clinically depressed for three years now and have had two suicide attempts. I always imagine that maybe I would be happier as someone else, someone prettier, thinner, richer, smarter you get the picture. But I realized that you can have "everything" as you do & still get down. I'm glad I started reading your blog because it has given me insight into not wanting to be something I am not & embracing myself as God has made me. I know it must upset you when strangers are mean but they haven't lived your life & known your struggles. Anyway I'm rambling. I wish you the best & may God continue to bless you & your family. Lots of love from Colorado & thanks for giving us a glimpse into your life.
