About Me

Hi, there! Thanks for stopping by and checking out Love Jennifer.

I’m Jennifer, the woman behind Love Jennifer! I’m a 30-something New Jersey travel and lifestyle blogger. I have lived in the State of New Jersey for ten years and prior to that I lived in Philadelphia, better known as the City of Brotherly Love. New Jersey is a great place to live and explore, because there’s so much to see and do … from our wineries, state parks, eateries, and beaches … you can’t help but love it here! I married my husband, Sterling, in September of 2010, and we have two daughters, ages 12 and 14.

The topics you will find me blogging about are food, travel, beauty, style, and my everyday life as a wife and mother.

My full time job is providing services to the state’s most vulnerable, while blogging is my part time job and also my escape from the monotony of my day to day tasks.

When I’m not working you can find me spending time with my family, searching the web for upcoming online auctions and estate sales, cleaning and decorating our home, reading, binge watching on a show I couldn’t find the time to watch, and usually enjoying a nice glass of wine from one of the local wineries. You’re more likely to be find me at home with my husband and girls during the week, but on the weekends we’re out exploring!

I am known to clean my home while watching/listening to YouTube’s “clean with me” videos and since I’m trying to learn Spanish, I’ve changed the language settings to help me along the way!

About the Blog

I started this blog in the spring of 2018. I currently follow a few nifty blogs that cover an array of topics and figured, ”why not start my own?” “Like really, how hard can it be? I have a lot to talk about and share.” So, this is the end result! Don’t be surprised if you see my blog changing — because as I grow and learn more about blogging, my blog will be updated to reflect that growth. Blogging is truly an art, so I hope you enjoy my blog and the content that I create.

Also, If you ever have any questions or concerns about my blog, please feel free to reach out to me via the contact section of my blog! I would love to hear and communicate with you, so leave me comments about what you thought about my posts!

Enjoy!

Mystery Blogger Award

Mystery Blogger Award

Greetings, everyone!

I have great and exciting news to share! This morning, I woke up to a nomination from fellow blogger Fritzie at Life Travel Soul for the Mystery Blogger Award. I have to be honest, I wasn’t quite sure about the award, so I had to do my homework and find out a little bit more about the Mystery Blogger Award.

I learned today that the Mystery Blogger Award was created by Okoto Enigma at Okoto Enigmas Blog. Enigma created the award, “for amazing bloggers with ingenious posts. Their blog not only captivates; it inspires and motivates. They are one of the best out there, and they deserve every recognition they get. This award is also for bloggers who find fun and inspiration in blogging; and they do it with so much love and passion.”

Again, I am excited about my nomination and if you aren’t too familiar with Fritzie and her blog, Life Travel Soul, be sure to check it out! Fritzie’s blog tackles life, travel, and everything in between with captivating writing and pictures to match!

So, here are the rules for the Mystery Blogger Award:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog
  • List the rules.
  • Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
  • Mention the creator of the award and provide a link, as well

  • You have to nominate 10 – 20 people
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog
  • Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify)
  • Share a link to your best post(s)

Three Things About Me:

  1. I’m obsessed with clean, organization, and scents that put me in a relaxing mood.
  2. I like to clean my home while listening/watching YouTube “Clean With Me” videos.
  3. I enjoy long car rides to new and exciting places!

Life Travel and Soul’s Questions for Me:

  1. What are your dream vacation destinations?
    I actually have quite a few dream vacation destinations — Bora Bora, Islamorada (Florida), Maldives, Aruba, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, US Virgin Islands, and Hawaii. There are more, but I don’t want to get ridiculous, lol — just know, that I love to have fun in the sun!
  2. What is your all-time favorite quote?
    My all-time favorite quote is “it’s just a chapter in your life … turn the page and move on!” There’s so much truth in this quote — It basically means don’t dwell on an issue/problem, take it for what it is, and move on!
  3. What helps you relieve stress?
    The easiest way for me to relieve stress is to take a nice walk. If I can’t do that, then binge watching The Golden Girls, always brightens my day!
  4. If a magical genie will grant you one wish – what would that be?
    To win one of those huge Powerball or Mega Millions jackpots!
  5. If you’re given a chance to portray a character in a movie, who would that be? What’s the title of the film?
    If I was given a change to portray a character in a movie, I would want to be Baby from Dirty Dancing!

A Quick Guide to Online Auctions

Before I end, I would just like to share that I am a fairly new blogger. After much thought and consideration, I started my blogging journey in April of 2018. I am very excited to share and grow, because as I’ve learned thus far … bloggin’ ain’t easy, but it is quite rewarding in many aspects!
