Who is The Girl in Gucci Glasses?
Writing is easy. Writing about yourself, not so much.
It’s like, what do I say that highlight the aspects of me I want to share, without making me sound pretentious and out of touch?
But once you get in your head, you begin to overanalyze, and then your writing is no longer from the heart so it falls flat.
So let’s just get right to it!
My name is Jasmine, and I’m your atypical millennial. Pretty sure everyone says that, but in my case, it’s true. I don’t adhere to stereotypes and I break people’s preconceived notions with ease.
Whether you’re a lurker, colleague, friend, or even an ex – I’m glad you’re here and I hope my page brings a smile to your face and lights a fire in your soul.
I’m a believer in simple luxuries, mental health, millennial pink, and of course: living your truth because life is too damn short to do anything else.
My background is as diverse as I am. I geek out about learning new things.
Stagnation is my kryptonite.
If there’s nothing else you learn from me, please let it be this: life is short. One day you will die.
Leave your comfort zone. try something new. Don’t accept the bare minimum. Travel alone. Kiss a stranger. Go after that dream everyone tells you is impossible.
I travel often or did BC (Before Corona). I think it’s safe to say that my love of travel arose from my life as the child of an Air Force Biomedical Engineer.
Concerts are my jam, and I love them all – whether it’s an up-and-coming artist in a dingy dive bar, or a mainstream act headlining SXSW.
Shopping, volunteering, and spending time with loved ones bring my heart joy. But I also love reading The New Yorker and tuning the world out.
I made this blog because friends and foes alike kept asking why I didn’t have one. I have some hot takes from time to time, am known to be a little funny on occasion, and can plan a skincare regime for someone with my eyes closed. I also have a knack for finding some wicked designer deals, so maybe I can spill some tea there sometime.
As much as my life is a rainbow chorus of love and good vibes, I have had my share of rainy days (or weeks), and I think it’s important to share that side of things with people too. Because we need to normalize days that aren’t so perfect.
In this era of social media, we are so used to seeing everything filtered, filled, and perfect. And while there’s no shame in that, people somehow feel bad when they hit a bump in the road or have a snag in life. I want things to be real here.
So I say all of that to say, I hope you enjoy my page, and I’m glad you’re here. Join me in embracing all of life’s roads with their potholes, and sudden twists and turns.
