Holiday Fashion - Jane For A Day

I am partnering with for this post. I was provided with product and compensation but as always, all words and opinions are my own.
   Hello loves. It's the start of Thanksgiving week and I hope this post finds you all well and keeping as calm as possible with the impending holiday! I've tried my best lately (but this month especially) to keep gratitude as a constant theme in our home and in our family activities, and it's certainly worked its way into my to-do lists and onto my social media and blog as well. So here today, I'm happy to share a little info about a great company with wonderful people that I'm very thankful for:
I've been close with the people at Jane since my very first blog conference ages ago, and I've used and included products I've purchased in giveaways and posts here on my blog for many years because I just love what they do and how they do it. Also, I have to add that right after my husband Martin passed away, the sweet people at Jane hosted a fundraiser at their headquarters to help the kids and I with expenses.  Their generosity and kindness meant so much to us.

    I say this all the time (because it's extremely important to me as a trusted source and as a person), but out of the hundreds of products that we all use in a day and all the businesses that contact me, I only choose companies and brands to partner with that either 1) I’ve personally used and loved for years, 2) have a great mission statement or way of giving back, 3) are run by people that I know and trust, or 4) are providing something that makes lives easier and more enjoyable that will bring my family and others closer together. meets all of those criteria for me!

    Basically, I think of them as a big online marketplace with hundreds of sales going on from other companies that range from fashion and accessories to furniture and decor to children's' clothing and on and on. The most exciting part though is that they're constantly adding new items from new online sellers as well as brick and mortar shops every 72 hours (and with prices that are just too great to pass up!). Just about every day, I find myself scrolling through the sneak peeks and saving items that I'd love for myself or for Richard or as gifts for others, and pretty much every order ends up including items for the whole family. :)

    One of the best things about in my opinion, is that because it's set up as a platform for smaller businesses to showcase their products to a massive audience, they're constantly helping to empower women by giving these passionate entrepreneurs some excellent visibility for their brand to a large audience. As a work-at-home-mom myself, I love seeing all the friends and family on my social media that are promoting a product they love while also hustling in so many other areas of their lives, and truly is an amazing vehicle for so many women (mostly:)) to encourage them and their brands to grow and flourish.


       It's really rewarding to scroll through the items on or on their app and think that each product comes from a different seller that has a passion for what they do (and probably a family to help support), and to know that every purchase made is going to ‘real’ people like me and my tribe.haha On my last purchase, I bought this beautiful lace dress for the holidays (not originally maternity:)) as well as the comfiest body pillow for my growing bump, a new pair of Bluetooth headphones (since mine broke recently), some shorts for my girls, a beautiful custom necklace with little peanut added to the family, a beard shaping tool for Richard, the best Friends shirt ever, a beautiful gift for the kids teachers, and a few other favorites!

Ok, so this is exciting too!  I’m honored that is featuring me and some of my favorite picks on their site this week along with the items chosen by from Classy Clutter, my girl Simply Sadie Jane and J’s Everyday Fashion. Now you can look through items I've chosen as well as others that I've been saving to my favorites.  (Don’t forget, these are only available for 72-96 hours depending on the item so, if you see something you like, carpe diem!)

    Oh, and one more fun thing -- you won’t want to miss out on joining in a big giveaway from They're giving away $3000 in shop credit (just in time for those holiday orders) to one grand prize winner and 25 runner ups.  Check out all of the details for the giveaway here.

    Alrighty I think that’s it for today? Haha Thanks so much for visiting and for reading, and be sure to check back in again tomorrow because I’m on a roll here lately! It feels great hanging out more regularly with you guys and to be able to answer more of your questions, etc. I love the feeling of things slowing down and getting quieter, and as this little lady and I enter our third trimester, I can’t think of a better way to do it than to commit to spending more time reclined back with my laptop propped on my lap, typing away:)

    Have a great rest of your week gang!

  3. Thanks for the info. Just did some Christmas shopping!

  4. Had never heard of the company before this post, thanks for sharing!


  5. Thanks for the reminder about I have shopped there in the past and have somehow forgotten to check back in every now and then. Now with Christmas shopping upon me, I'm hoping to get as much as I can there! You look darling in that dress, (shows off your baby bump so sweetly) what a gorgeous color for you. I have worn my hair in a short pixie cut for a few years now and love it, but when I saw your pretty ponytail, I fondly remembered my long hair. Love the color, is that the bayalage method of painting or sweeping color through hair? The color is so rich and glossy. Sorry, I didn't intend to write an entire letter to you, there were so many things I wanted to comment on, not to mention the perfect newsletter and giveaway. Happy, blessed Thanksgiving!

  6. You look amazing! <3 I have never heard of before. I will definitely check it out! (and you can never go wrong with a giveaway)


  7. I love that they held a fundraiser - so great when there is real people behind an awesome business! I am going to go check it out!
