Welcome to JEN•HAYDEN, I'm incredibly flattered that you are taking the time to read and click through my lifestyle site. My name is Jennifer and I'm a twenty something, Korean-American so-cal girl who loves to travel. I have the absolute cutest pup on the planet named Shaquille. I spend my 9-5 as a recruiter in the Creative and Digital space for Fortune 500 companies in the Media and Entertainment Industry. While every minute in between, before and after is spent obsessing over all things fashion and beauty. I recently moved from my Orange County bubble back to Los Angeles. I needed a change and I made it happen. Let's see what adventures this new chapter brings...
JEN•HAYDEN is a lifestyle site compiled of things I'm wearing, the products I'm using, my musings and the places I'm discovering. In addition to my blog, I have started creating content for my YouTube channel which is an extension of my beauty edit. I give you my opinions on products and will take a crack at showing you how I do MY makeup. Please keep in mind, I am not a professional makeup artist, nor do I claim to be one. I'm just a girl who loves her lipstick. Because my love of beauty and skincare I have been lucky enough to work with some amazing beauty and skincare brands such as: e.l.f. Cosmetics, Sephora, Smashbox Cosmetics, Peach & Lily, SkinStore.com and Algenist.
At the beginning of 2017 I started the #LettersFromJen series on my blog. I really wanted my audience to get to know me beyond all the trendy clothes and beauty products. This was incredibly risky and scary for me as I'm a really private person. But, I felt I was being too superficial and barely scratching the surface of who I was as a person on social media. I wanted my audience to be able to relate to me and the things (good and bad) I’ve experienced and overcome in my life. With that in mind I started penning letters.
In addition to my 9-5 and blog, my best friend and fellow blogger Amanda of Feast.Fashion.Faves and I took a pretty big leap of faith and started an e-comm accessories business called Whim Things. You can say I'm quite busy, but I can't complain because I know how lucky and fortunate I am to have this platform where I'm able to connect with all of you.
I hope you enjoy!
