This Winter

The past 2 days I’ve been home since school’s been closed due to snow/ice days. For those of you who are new to Life According to Jamie, my full time/day job is teaching. While I was off, I browsed through my phone and saw that I had quite a few short videos from this winter…

Mikasa Beauty Brushes

A few weeks ago Mikasa Beauty reached out to me and offered me a really sweet discount code on their website plus a complimentary makeup sponge – their Lemon Drop sponge which retails for $10. I, a firm believer that you can never have too many makeup brushes, took them up on their offer and bought a…

Touches of Gold

Snow day! We thought we were in the clear for spring and just like that a blizzard makes its way to us. I just hope I won’t be snowed in for long. I’ve mentioned it on here before, but in recent years I’ve taken a liking to gold – yellow gold to be exact. For…

Paris Fashion Week Street Style

We’ve reached my last fashion week street style post for the season! Last week was Paris Fashion Week and the street style did not disappoint. As with my posts from New York, London, and Milan – I picked out just a handful of street style looks I really liked. Keep in mind I only browsed…

Curved Hem Cable Knit

Back to a cold snap this week and a blizzard on the way! So the sweaters are back in full force this week. My favorite kind of sweater is cable knit and I love that there are so many different looks to cable knit. Design and detail varies, width of the cable knit braids are…

Style Inspiration: Emma Watson

We’ve watched Emma Watson grow up before our eyes. From a pre-teen on the big screen as Hermione Granger in the Harry Potter films to Belle in the soon-to-be released Beauty and the Beast live-action movie. Aside from her film accomplishments she’s become quite the style icon and someone for women everywhere to look up to for…

Date Night Idea with Turo

People are often asked what their ideal date night is, but I’m not sure there is one ideal date night. I think there are lots of different things you can do and it really depends on the season and your mood. Maybe it’s the dead of winter and you don’t feel like braving the cold so…

Chili Mac & Cheese

Happy Saturday! I’ve said it multiple times this season and I’m going to say it again – this weather is crazy. It was spring like weather just a week ago and then yesterday it was snowy and the weather forecast for this Tuesday is a potential major snow storm. Part of me would love a…

Photo Challenge: The Road Taken

It’s Friday! If you follow my blog regularly then you might already know that I’ve been sick the past 2 days. Luckily I’m feeling better, but I’m still looking forward to the weekend so I can just rest up. But moving on to today’s post – last week’s photo challenge from The Daily Post was…

California Dreaming

I wish I was in California right now instead of home sick. Yesterday I mentioned in my blog post that I wasn’t feeling well but that I was probably still going to work. Well, I did go to work but ended up leaving early after I was done teaching for the day. I made it…

International Women’s Day

As many of you may know it is Women’s History Month this month and today is International Women’s Day. I know there is a movement today for women to stay home from work for “A Day Without a Woman”. Unfortunately, I can’t take off because I have parent/teacher conferences today which means not just a…

Book Review: Talking as Fast as I Can

If you’re a Lauren Graham and/or Gilmore Girls fan then you know she released a book, Talking as Fast as I Can, right around the time the Netflix A Year in the Life came out. I knew I wanted to read it as I’m a fan of both the actress and the show (plus Parenthood) and I always like…
