Being in New York City now for almost 2 years I feel encouraged to connect with other women in NY creating things in their life. With that I have started a women in business group with two other ladies called Collective XX. We have brought our circles together and hope to expand our space for young women in business to keep each other encouraged and enlightened throughout the journey.

In the mornings, I go out for a run (if the baby allows it) then a 10 minute meditation (if the baby allows it). Lemon water then coffee while I make Winnie breakfast and from there I begin with e-mails.

We have monthly meet ups and we try to put things into place that the ladies might benefit from. It’s such a wonderful group of women we are able to put in one room and open the conversation and hold space one another. In one of our group meetings, we had a financial planner come in and she told us this was the first in her career she had a group of women. With that I feel we are starting something in the right direction.

I read The Power of Now quite a long time ago but it’s one of those books you keep re-reading. It changes and confirms your perspective of everything within you. One of my favorite quotes from it is ‘Nothing real can be threatened.’
Straight out of high school my step brother started a ebay store that resold computer software. It grew so fast he built his own website and I came on board to manage everything. It was a whirlwind experience. We were netting millions within the first six months of business. At that time I was attending FIDM and decided to go start my own e-comm business but within fashion. So I got an investor and launched Graffiti Pink (I hate the name now). We were an ecommerce store that sold trendy lingerie. I carried brands like Princess Tam Tam, Honeydew, Hanky Panky and more. This was way before the lingerie trend had kicked in. It became pretty well known in LA. We did a fashion show at the Playboy Mansion, Tyra Banks chose our house line romper as the intimate piece of the year when she had a show, and we got a lot of good press.

Jasmine's favorite beauty products

Dress, Reformation

I’m big on shopping online - Reformation, Pixie Market, MrLarkin, Outnet. I haven’t done a lot of shopping since being pregnant as I’ve been cutting down my wardrobe and wanting to invest into some good pieces. But I’m really loving all the 70’s inspired stuff that’s out now. I’ve always loved that era and it always influences my hair and clothing decisions.

Jasmine's favorite makeup

I make sure to wash my face every night and moisturize. Same thing in the morning. I can tell NY water is changing my skin. I am big on oils for moisturizing and washing my face.

I love using coconut oil to remove my eye make up, and it also helps your eyelashes grow.
