Hi, everyone!  My name is Jacquelyn Barisano and I’m 25 years old.  Last year I married my best friend, and together we moved back to the town where both of us grew up, to begin our life together.

My marriage has been everything I hoped for, but now I will tell you a little about myself from before these recent years.When I was 15, I moved away from suburban Massachusetts for a whole summer, into a “model’s apartment” in New York City, and started my career there.  Now, I am a professional model working in Boston and along the way, I have acquired some simple, essential tricks of the trade, and a pretty individual sense of style. Honestly, I’m completely infatuated with things like hair, makeup, and fashion, and I often tend to experiment in order to create/alter/perfect looks.

Although I can say I have gained a sense of self-confidence through my experiences, my disposition is far from a “prima-donna.” (Shockingly, my husband tends to take on that role). You can generally find me relaxed, laughing, and usually surrounded by different types of people. That’s because my friends are all quite different from one another. In fact, last weekend at 2 in the morning (after countless drinks) one of my friends compared our “group” to the HBO series “GIRLS,” identifying herself as Hannah. Need I say more? If you haven’t seen it, start watching! (You should google Hannah in the mean-time).

Right now, I am typing this on my new iPad, in bed on top of the covers while listening to Sex and the City reruns, thinking about how I am so thrilled to be a face and voice of the UndercoverWear empire. I’ve tried on more lingerie in my young years than most have in a lifetime, and what I appreciate most about UCW is that their products fit so well for a woman’s body.  I’m excited that I can start writing about my everyday life, challenges, and perspectives for all of you! I’m hoping that soon you will want to join in the conversation and share with me about your experiences, too.  Everyone thinks their life is pretty “average” or “normal” but I believe there really is no such thing as normal, and so we all have a unique story to tell!   Last night in bed (see a trend here?) I wrote a list of topics I am dying to get down and dirty on.

  • Inspirations/thoughts
  • Me
  • Being Feminine and a Girl’s girl
  • Laid back/ attentive
  • Poised
  • Notting Hill – Julia Roberts
  • Class, elegance, pure, natural
  • Blake Lively – style icon
  • Live in the moment
  • Stop worrying about 3 years from now
  • Throw away regret!!!
  • Trust instinct
  • “Girl crushes” – great for inspirations to be a better you, not to be them!  Trying to be someone else is a waste of the person you are!
  • Makeup – less is more – natural
  • Fav products/ makeup routine
  • Style

As I write & post – I’d love to hear from you about what you think or what you want to hear more about.  Welcome to the UCWBoutique – I’m thrilled to be a part of the team!

Over 50 – HOT FLASHES

Tags

, , , , , , , ,

A few little observations for the Over-50 ladies out there.  Rather than calling them “facts” I thought “Hot Flashes” were a little more appropriate.

Hot Flash 1

You know you’ve hit 50 when: Wait servers start calling you Ma’am.

While I love it when a Military person addresses me as “Ma’am”—when a HOT gorgeous 20 something year old male wait server does so, it’s downright painful! It’s even worse when a cute, young, sweet female uses Ma’am, you immediately think she’s treating you like her grandmother.

Hot Flash 2

You know you’ve hit 50 when: You start trying to figure out how to get rid of all the stuff you’ve collected

For me each stage of my life brought something new to collect.

At 20-years-old I collected:

  • Champagne Glasses
  • Fans
  • China
  • Silverware

At 30-years-old:

  • Designer Clothes
  • Furs,
  • Lladros
  • Jewelry

At 40-years-old:

  •  Houses
  •  Cars

Now, of course I’m trying to get rid of all that stuff. It’s amazing that when you buy something expensive it is priceless –when you’re trying to get rid of it… it is worthless. Can you say Ebay?

Hot Flash 3

You know you’ve hit 50 when: The only thing you are now collecting is anti-aging creams.

And how many have you tried? I’ve spent a ton of $$$ on every type of anti-aging gimmick–creams, lotions, machines, exercising –you name it – I’ve tried it.

Personally, I love my La Mer Cream and indulge myself despite the cost. Of course, my sister Charlene swears she read that Dove Face Cream has been proven to work just as well as La Mer.   She was also the one who told me there was no Santa Claus! Thank you Charl!

Hot Flash 4

You know you’ve hit 50 when: You start saying, 50 is the new 40

OK this one is really simple…50 is the new 50!

Hot Flash 5

You know you’ve hit 50 when: Your skirts and belts have shrunk drastically. 

Forget Scarlett O’Hara 22 inch waist, you’re lucky if you have 22 inch thighs!

So while, you may have more wisdom and maturity, you know you’ve hit 50 when you start talking about wisdom and maturity!

Hi everyone! My name is Kasha Marie, I am a student, worker, and mommy to a soon-to-be 2 year old daughter; Avynn! I am a hard worker, I am very family oriented and I have an extreme love for fashion.

Also, I love a bargain! Who doesn’t right? I mean who hasn’t regretted leaving an item at the store which was to-die-for! When I’m not working, or shopping, I am modeling or spending time with my family! I actually most recently modeled here for Undercover Wear, which was an amazing experience! To be honest, before the shoot I thought the website was another Fredrick’s or lower-end VS. Once I actually arrived at the shoot and tried their items on, I was really impressed! Something simple and sexy was actually so so comfy!

What I loved about UCW was the fact that usually PJS are too sexy or too tacky, but these night gowns and little sleepwear outfits were actually sexy but appropriate, and actually made me feel sexy! (especially my freshly shaved legs against the fabric) haha ;) After the shoot I also got to try out a few products straight from the website!

I am still working on convincing Avynn’s dad to whip out the Hemp Massage Oil and help these tired feet of mine, haha. But I have actually used the Hemp Shaving Cream and I’m in love with it! I am a fan of Hemp moisturizing lotion, as well as their chapstick line!

Soon after the shoot I joined the team of bloggers here! I decided to hop on board with UCW Boutique – mainly because I wanted to share my experience with women everywhere. As a mother I felt confident in their items, which every woman should. This boutique doesn’t focus on being a thin-thin woman to embrace your confidence, and that is what hooked me. I am all about embracing our beauty, in every shape and size! This website targets every woman. I feel this is somewhere each woman can embrace their sexy!

So, thank you for reading!  Tell me what you think & I look forward to talking to you more!
