A-Z Series: J is For

 To anyone not in the blogging world, it may sound weird to say that I have found a new, fabulous friend, but that is the case when it comes to Julia from The Urban Slant. To those of you bloggers out there, you know what I mean, right?? Julia is so sweet and supportive and puts up with my crazy emails.  Nothing better.  She also has a knack for finding gorgeous pieces, whether they are for your wardrobe or home.  And you will also love her fabulous recipes. I couldn't be happier to have her on the blog today. Clearly one of my favorite J's!


Hi! Julia from The Urban Slant here sharing my favorite things that start with the letter J. I was so excited when Carly asked me to participate in this fun series! She is a DOLL, and we've become quite good friends through blogging. Crazy how this blogosphere works. J is such a great letter (I'm totally biased), and there are so many things I love that start with it. I've narrowed it down to five of my favorite things. Who doesn't love jet-setting, jewels, Jonathan Adler, jacuzzi's and jungle prints?! I know I can't get enough of all of them. What do you love that starts with J?

Thank you for having me today, Carly! I hope you will all stop on over to my blog where you can find daily reads on design, travel, fashion, food and urban living. xoxo

I 110% agree with Julia's picks.

My other J favorites:
J. Crew - you can do no wrong there
Jessica Simpson-more specifically her shoe collection
Jamba Juice.  I lived right across the street from one last year.  Have you had their oatmeal yet?? If not, I recommend you try some ASAP. And then get a smoothie too.

What else am I missing?

xoxo Carly

I completely agree with Julia's picks- jetsetting, jewels, and jungle prints are some of my favorites as well. I also adore jackets! Layer them almost every day. :)
