The girl behind the blog...
Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I’m Jana and I’m excited to share my journey balancing motherhood along with my passion for anything beauty & fashion. A little bit about me: I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic before moving to New Jersey, and finally landing here in Texas. I followed my passion and got certified as a fashion stylist by The School of Style in New York, and used the experience I gained there to get into management for high end retail. (My favorite!)
So, what’s Jfabstyles? The name came about 9 years ago while I was working my first retail job at BCBG. J is for Jana, Fab for Fabulous, and of course Styles... well, because Style! It just stuck with me ever since.
I'm looking to inspire and motivate other women who, like me, might need a little break from their day-to-day life. I hope to be able to plant, cultivate & watch this blog grow as a community that is all about empowerment & motivation. Feel free to leave a comment and follow me on social media!
I was born and raised in the Dominican Republic & I moved to NJ when I was 17!
I went to catholic school my whole life and after school I attended English school twice a week for a few years which was a big help when I moved to NJ.
I have been in 3 serious relationships, 1) First relationship lasted 4 years, 2) Almost almost 6, which ended with a beautiful daughter 3) my
It is that time of the year again, Spring fashion is here and with that comes the revelation of this years Pantone “IT” Color.
For those of you who are asking: “WTH is Pantone?”, well long story short…Pantone is technically the color forecaster authority
Turning 30 can be a big deal…who am I kidding? I am freaking out a little.
By 30 you are supposed to be married (not divorced like me lol) to a successful, tall, tanned, handsome man (in a well tailored suit, of course), pulling a perfectly executed dinner out of the oven with all your organic ingredients of course! You should be having this big, beautiful home with
I do not label myself as a “Single Mom” even though I am a single mom.
When using the term “Single Mom” we often think about a poor (broke) woman who gets no help and is struggling to make ends meet and somehow is so hurt by her past, and God knows how she’s raising her child/ children. It denotes weakness and kind of sounds like you are a
Happy 2019! Maybe I am a little late but who cares? I was having such a hard time with what I wanted my first post to be about. Also my internet provider had been super slow and I had to switch providers because…It is 2019, ain’t nobody got time for slow internet!
For some reason I entered 2019 not very excited, I really don’t know what it is but I am an even number person so I made up my mind that 2019 will be a good year to prepare me to an amazing 2020! With that being said, as you noticed from the title I gave up resolutions this year…
Here we are with yet another gift guide idea, I am terrible at gift giving so this year I was trying to make it a little less painful on my end. I can’t be the only one that has a hard time with gifts.
I have made a little cheat sheet with a list of items that will work for almost every guy, here is what I came up with:
Can you believe that the holidays are here? It’s gifts season. I don't know about you, but I tend to have such a hard time picking gifts for those around me. So… this time around I decided to help those alike me. I came up with a gift guide idea blog post season =)
If you know me then you know I do not need a special occasion to turn it into a photoshoot, but I used my bday as the excuse this time around =)
Cooler weather, pumpkin picking, halloween, and next thing you know the Holidays are here. Winters are my favorite but living in Texas means that I don’t get real winters, I do not let that get in the way of layering and switching up my wardrobe for some more “fall” appropriate looks!
There's no other way around it.
I'm referring to the life that is happening right at this second. You might be in you mid 20s or late 30s, maybe even in your 40's, and like me you might be doing life as "you are supposed to" work, relationships, children and maybe some socialization here and there...I will hope so.
