We are pleased to introduce Stylelist Blogger Network member Jacyln Johnson of Some Notes on Napkins. While she isn't writing and reporting on the latest fashion and beauty trends from Los Angeles, Jaclyn is busy (very busy!) running No Subject, a marketing and events (read: parties!) agency. So what does it take to throw a perfect party and what beauty products does she love? Read on to find out:
What's your work uniform?
Black booties, denim shirt, leather jacket and a statement necklace, of course.
You lived in New York City and moved to Los Angeles, has your style changed at all?
My style has definitely changed, but I think it has more to do with where I am at in my life. I was in my early twenties in New York City and my style was experimental. There was lots of vintage, crazy costume jewelry and fur coats -- it was very playful and fun. I think as I've gotten older I've turned to more sophisticated and stylized looks, but still with little hints of playfulness!
Give us some tips for throwing an insanely awesome party.
I love a good party! First and foremost, have a mix of beverages plus one signature cocktail that's pre-made to move the bar line along. Snacks of some kind are a must-have, as guests will leave a party if they are hungry. A killer playlist or DJ is crucial. Always include a few throwback songs that everyone can groove to. And lastly, have a really great invite -- font choice is crucial.
What are your interests aside from blogging?
Graphic design, music, nail art, gluten-free snacks, Palm Springs and wine.
Which beauty products can you not live without?
My momma always said, "Moisturize! Moisturize! Moisturize!" So I moisturize, a lot.
Tell us about running your own business.
It is both super rewarding and totally stressful. I am fortunate to have a killer business partner who rides all the ups and downs with me. I absolutely love the creative freedom of being my own boss -- you get to see your vision come to life. We are also lucky enough to work with some amazing clients that let us push boundaries and come up with really compelling campaigns and events.
