Brunch with a blogger: Jenna of Leggings Love

Ever since I started this blog, I've had the chance to get to know some of the most wonderful and inspiring women in the world. Even if I've never met most of them in person, I still call them my friends, because we share the same passions and obsess over the same things. And since I love sharing the most fabulous things and finds with you, it feels only appropriate to introduce you to these fabulous ladies. Today, I'm officially kicking off my new blog series: every Sunday, I'll have a virtual brunch with one of my favorite bloggers, and you're more than welcome to join us for a cup of coffee, fresh croissants, and a little bit of gossip. Feel free to be inspired by these amazing women!

When I was brainstorming this project, I instantly knew, that Jenna, the author of Leggings Love would have to be my very first guest. I "met" her over a year ago, and we instantly clicked. A girl who loves Harry Potter, who believes that few problems cannot be solved with retail therapy, who loves France, who is obsessed with everything British, who can pull off an over-the-top fascinator and who hates running and would rather just walk, is most definitely a girl after my own heart.

The thing I love most about Jenna, is that she isn't afraid to share hilarious and sometimes embarrassing snippets from her everyday life. After all, a girl who chooses to impersonate Rudolf (yes, the reindeer) for Halloween, who is obsessed with leggings, whose dog's name in Eleanor May (after Eleanor Roosevelt) and who has a lifelong passion for Kate Spade, is bound to be funny and fabulous. And have I mentioned that she is writing her first novel? (you can read excerpts here and here) I think it's awesome (and I've always had a flair for great books!), and I'm pretty sure one day Jenna will be a big name in the chick lit domain.

Please, meet Jenna, find out which things are rocking her world and be sure to hop over to her blog, Leggings Love, to get a healthy dose of great and witty writing that's bound to improve your mood!

My style in three words: Classic. Feminine. Comfortable.

Guilty pleasure: British accents. 

Best blogging advice: I'm not sure I've ever really been given any serious blog advice! I think it is important though to write for yourself. Write what you know, what fascinates or excites you. Don't worry about amusing or entertaining others (although that's always a nice bonus!). 

Life mantra: "We loiter in winter while it is already spring." by Henry David Thoreau
I think often we spend too much time and energy dwelling on the past and its letdowns instead of enjoying the promise and hope of the present and future.

Thing I am most proud of: Becoming and English major. It was scary declaring a major without a clear career path, but I am proud that I followed my heart and took a chance.

Thanks so much for joining me for the very first Brunch with a blogger, Jenna!
