Note from Jane: 4th of July 2024

Posted by Jane PARADIS on

This is not your traditional 4th of July post. Although I am away at our lake house buying hotdogs, waiting for the kids to all arrive for days on the boat and all the fun summer stuff [and check out the latest in my 4th of July neckmess]- I want to talk for a second about something that I have noticed, and, honestly, I want your help with.

What has been on my mind, is ‘leading with a smile’. I know you all think I’m always happy, but in reality, I struggle like everyone else with work to-do’s, worrying about kids, financial pressure, and extreme stress over the state of the world. The other day I was in a store waiting while my stepdaughter was trying on some clothes and I saw the loveliest exchange. A girl was trying on clothes and her mom and friend were coming to see what she had put on. Before she stepped out of the dressing room she yelled form behind the curtain, “Oh, Mom, I’m not sure about this one”. Before she could swing open the curtain, her mom and friend just smiled and said – show us! And it was so genuine and pure and encouraging. I feel like, we just need to lead with a smile – MORE. Maybe all the time.

When you are walking down the street, smile at someone. When your waiter takes an order, smile. When you are doing the most mundane thing, like rebooking a canceled flight in the depths of a depressing airport, smile at that person across the counter. It’s so easy for everyone in the modern world to be so engulfed in our phones and the negativity that can come from that, sometimes we just need to look up, take a break, and smile – to form that connection with someone in person.

We have 60k people on this email list, do you think we could change the world a bit if we all started smiling?

One person who I met who is a SMILER is our model Kylie Vonnahme. This gal is not only smart and gorgeous, but she is gracious, she smiles and shakes hands – she is just all around lovely. When she told us about balancing modeling AND starting a new company, we wanted to help her in any way we could. Introducing UNBOOZE, an herbal supplement that helps you bounce back from the effects of a few cocktails. We are not promoting over consumption, but we are promoting vitamins to help you keep your smile going 😊.

I thought it would be fun to have a couple cocktails and mocktails that I will be serving this holiday weekend.

Make a PITCHER of this Strawberry Mocktail to have on hand all day the 4th!

The last few summers we have had a cocktail competition where we break the adults into teams. Each team develops a cocktail and presents it to the group. Then group votes on the winner. We have had to BAN Mojitos because they always win. Here is our favorite twist on a Mojito:

So now you know I will be smiling, drinking Strawberry Mocktails by day and French Rivera Mojito’s by night (followed by my Unbooze supplement!) – let’s move on to the outfits and JEWELRY:

Can we make this a CORAL MOMENT. I will 10000% be in our new coral statement necklace, with our gold coral pendant and Inspiration coin. Yes, all of those 😊. Here are the outfits to match:

ALEMAIS DRESS | JANE WIN INSPIRATION | JANE WIN BRACELET | CLAIRE V TOTE | 27 EDIT NATURALIZER SANDALS

TORY BURCH COVERUP | JCREW SWIMSUIT | JANE WIN NECKLACE | VACATION SUNSCREEN | FREYA SUN HAT | UNBOOZE SUPPLEMENTS
