Amy is one of my longest friends from college. We both attended the Savannah College of Art & Design 10 years ago (wow), and we have both since relocated to the amazing City of Angels, so we have been able to keep our friendship so close over the years. I am so thankful for her lighthearted spirit, loving heart, and she loves to laugh as much as I do. We have a mutual love for sunny Southern California, and honestly are so alike in so many ways that we connect without having to explain ourselves, which is such a special and rare friendship. Her brand Miss Amy Loves LA has always been an inspiration to me – you can follow her on Instagram @alwaysmissamy and she has recently launched a lovely little life planner and life coaching handle as well @extraordinaryrituals

June 30 - Cancer
How old are you?
33, but 87 at heart [old lady emoji]
Where do you live? What is one of your favorite things about where you live?
Los Angeles - more specifically, Culver City. I love that there’s always something to do, somewhere to eat, something to explore. You can’t be bored here.
What is your favorite color and why?
I don’t really have a fave, but I tend to gravitate towards teal.
How would you describe your style?
Granny-chic. Lots of florals and kaftans and kimonos.
What inspires you?
Los Angeles! I love every nook and cranny of it. I read anything and everything I can get my hands on. I watch everything on Netflix. I’m surrounded by creative people at work and in my personal life. I follow artists on social media that motivate me. Inspiration is everywhere.
Who do you look up to and why?
My friend Ashley is the most generous and loving spirit I’ve ever known. She embodies light and magic.
What would you pick as your spirit animal?
A hedgehog. Because I’m obsessed with them. And because I’m pretty sure they’re introverts too. They love to sleep and eat.

Whiskey or vodka?
What is your favorite song?
I don’t think I have one.
If you could broadcast 1 message across the world, what would it be?
How do you know me? What is our connection?
We met in college! You are friends with my friend Becca, and you helped me move from the dorms into my very own, teeny tiny, very adorable studio apartment. Amy Baby + Jen Baby 4ever <3
What is your favorite JCJ design and why? (doesn’t have to be one you own!)
I’m obsessed with this. IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!
What would you like to see JCJ design in the future that you don’t already see with our brand?
Keep playing around with different stones. Maybe some beaded stuff? Everything you do is incredible though!
