Hello there! Welcome to Writing in Red Lipstick – a blog dedicated to celebrating the little things in life.
I’m Jess, a twenty-something blogger and content specialist living in the D.C. metro area.
Writing in Red Lipstick is a place where I share my passions, embarrassing moments, things I love, things I’ve learned, my travels, and of course, my passion for lipstick.
This blog began as a “self exploration” assignment during my freshman year of college. We were asked to create some form of media that showcased our personality. Even after the class ended, I kept up with it as an online journal and it has since grown into this little space!
I’m a writer at heart (with a BA in English) an INFP, a Leo, an Enneagram #4, and I’m fascinated by astrology and vintage style. I could spend hours discussing interior design, Tudor England, The Real Housewives of New York, Dolly Parton, Meghan Markle, and the Kardashians. If you enjoy any of those things, I’m sure we would be fast friends 😉
I have made the decision to support cruelty-free beauty brands, and do my best to feature those on this blog. I’m also aiming to become more mindful with my purchases by making an effort to support ethical and conscious brands. Post on that coming soon.
Outside of WiRL, I spend a lot of time exploring DC and the surrounding areas, channeling my inner Nigella Lawson, going hiking or taking yoga classes, playing with Adobe software, entertaining friends, or browsing the local thrift store.
Thanks so much for checking out my blog! I hope you’ll stick around.
