Welcome to Jordan Up to Date! This is a fashion/beauty/travel blog with a few posts here and there about my non fashion/beauty/travel hobbies.

I graduated in 2013 with a masters in British and American Lit and struggled to find a way to use my degree that wasn’t teaching. So I wrote a book! A middle grade adventure-mystery novel. I started querying this year, (2018) and am still on the search for an agent. So the question was: What to do in the meantime? Hello blogging!

I’ve always liked fashion, but its wasn’t until the middle of my master’s degree that I started to take dressing myself seriously. I wasn’t sure where to begin, so I would find my favorite mannequin in whatever store I was in and copy it’s outfit (still not a bad option in my opinion!). I’m still not an expert by any means, but I like to think I’ve upped my game.

I didn’t start getting into beauty/makeup until a few years ago, so I’m still learning. I’ve obtained a general sense of what products I like and don’t like and I look forward to sharing my opinions with you!

I LOVE to travel; I have since I was a small child. I’ve been fortunate enough to go on many adventurous and there will definitely be travel posts here and there.
