How did you begin your career? 
Like many others, I was laid off during the pandemic from my corporate job. Since Moving to LA, I was establishing my career as a marketing and social media manager. When the opportunity arose to work for myself (I call getting laid off an opportunity now) I thought, “well I’ve been doing this for brands, I can do this for myself.” I jumped into it head first and within the year I was signed to an agency.

How do you hope to inspire people through your social media platform? What can your followers expect to see when visiting your social media page(s)? 
I hope I inspire those who find me on social media to just be who they want to be, wear what they want, live like a main character. This is my “Hot Rich and Delusional” theory. My followers can expect to see LOTS of outfit inspiration, my way of doing the newest hair and makeup trends, my everyday life and me oversharing on stories.

What do you predict will be the biggest fashion trends this season?
Deep red and cherry red outerwear, fur details, biker boots, double denim, long coats with little outfits… if you get the vibe.

What did you love most about your getaway to Playa del Carmen with Modeliste?
I’m going to be a cheese ball, but I loved spending time with beautiful women and making new girlfriends. It felt like a community and I walked away more inspired.

What was your favorite aspect of the Hilton in Playa del Carmen?
My Favorite part of the Hilton in Playa del Carmen was how relaxed and easy going it was. Down to the little cafes and restaurants, the spa, and even an easy walk right onto the beach.

Read a good book or watch a good movie?
Read a good book DUH! I literally finished a book on our flight back from Playa del Carmen!

Do you have any upcoming travel plans? If so, where?
Yes! I am Heading to the Paradero in Todos Santos this month and then my family and I rented a villa in Merída in February.

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I’m an introvert with good social skills for the most part, but once I’m comfortable, prepare yourself for the weird Jade to come out!

What’s your go-to airport look? Essentials to pack in a carry on?
My go-to airport look is a ribbed tank, thick sweater, a good pair of lounge pants that don’t give me diaper butt or sweatshorts, scrunchy socks, and dad shoes.
My carry-on essentials are all of my electronics and chargers, vitamins, snacks, makeup, jewelry, extra pair of underwear, bikini, flip flops, a dress, and a workout outfit.

Girls night in or Girls night out?
Girls night in, lets get weird with each other and drink wine.

What’s a typical work week like for you? Any advice you have for staying productive throughout the week?
Monday through Friday I typically am answering emails, on calls, fine tuning my content calendar, the list goes on for administrative related things. I typically shoot content twice a week (Wednesday and Saturday). I’m still trying to find the best ways to stay productive but I love to create a schedule for the non-negotiables I need to do for the day and fill in the blanks for the rest. Something I like to remind myself is that problems will always be there tomorrow. If I can’t get to a task, I don’t need to beat myself up over it. My mental health is so much more important.

What’s your current skincare routine? Any products you’d recommend for our Modeliste readers?

My current skincare routine is so simple. Gentle cleanser, toner, moisturizer, under eye cream, spot treatment. I use a lot of Jan Marini products and the dual action Benzoyl Peroxide is the best spot treatment I’ve ever used. Tatcha Water Cream Moisturizer and Clarins Total Eye Lift are staples for me.

What’s something your followers would be surprised to know about you?
I use to be a competitive rock climber/boulderer.

Where do you gain inspiration for content? Any tips & tricks you’d like to share for those inspiring to have a career like your own?
I get most of my inspiration from Pinterest and watching runway shows. I also get so much inspiration from my friends and talking about work with them. I love the new perspectives and the confidence you get from them when they believe in you to achieve something.

Tips: Be consistent, I know we’ve all heard that. Hold other people’s opinions in a little box and decide whether you want to take it to heart or throw it away! Just start, get a tripod and start taking photos and videos of everything. It’ll quickly show you what you are more passionate about.

What makes you different from other content creators?
What makes me different from other content creators is that I have a strategy for all my content and socials. I treat it like a business and when I am stuck or in a creative rut, I’ve created a well oiled machine that can still run when I’m not at my best.

What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
Thank you so much , I love you all, you’re beautiful, and never forget that everyone is a princess hehe – Paris Hilton HAHAHA no really I love you all and I just feel like we’re all bffs so don’t be a stranger.
