About Me

Alfani skirt 4

I am Jennifer, a 36-year-old woman living in Birmingham, Ala. I’m a Jersey girl at heart, but I love living in the Magic City with my husband and the friends I’ve made here in the South. I’ve lived in nine different states, plus London, and worked for some top-notch publications (Southern LivingWomen’s Wear Daily, W magazine and Bassmaster magazine) as a writer and editor. I am currently diving into a new role as managing editor of eight business-to-business magazines at Grand View Media.

I believe that loving your body — your brain, heart, soul and the physical body — is an important step in finding success in life. As the popular saying goes, if you can’t love yourself, no one else will. It’s time to look at doing good things for ourselves as actually doing good for others. So whether I’m working on losing weight, becoming more physically fit or learning to dress in a way that expresses my personality, I want to do all of these things with body positivity and self-care in mind.

I write for women of all sizes and ages who want to learn how fashion, health, fitness and body positivity feeds their self-confidence and helps them lead a stellar life.

My Mission

Stellar Fashion & Fitness helps motivate women to express their personal style and build confidence through fashion, fitness, health and body positivity.

Stellar Fashion & Fitness is a space to be inspired to create a stellar you. By motivating myself to work on my health, fitness and style, I hope to motivate others to do so as well. Through blog posts and engagement on social media, Stellar Fashion & Fitness is a community of body positive, confident, strong women who are striving to live a healthy life — fashionably.

      Thank you! I may not make progress very quickly, but I will get there eventually. Now that I’ve started the pattern, it’s hard for me not to be active!

    Thanks for this blog, especially the weigh-in. I’m struggling to lose what started as 30 lbs, and has now become almost 40 lbs. I’m glad I’m not alone in the ups and downs.
