Sooo, remember my post 2 weeks ago about fighting fear and being vulnerable? Read this post to get caught up. Well, I got back on the horse. I was all vulnerable up that Zumba class and rocked it out.


The Zumba culture has its own fashion sense, which I love. It’s all about bright colors and funky swag. Some of the dedicated Zumba-goers tend to add their own accessories/flair to their workout wardrobe. I’ve never been much of a headband girl in daily life, but I often need something to keep my bangs off my face during workouts. So I wore my super cute grey and white chevron knit headband from Natalie Jeanne Designs to my back-in-the-saddle Zumba class last Sunday. It’s tight enough where it didn’t fall off and I didn’t have to fiddle with it, but soft and pliable enough for comfort. The chevron headband served both function and fashion.

I asked Natalie to share some insight into her shop. Here is part of our interview:
EB: What is your inspiration for creating headbands?
NJD: With the headbands, I actually made them for myself for something different to do with my hair. I have thick, long hair, and it added some style to a ponytail or top knot. So for me, they are definitely for everyday wear. I think they are also great for the gym, and can add that extra little something to your outfit to make sweating look good.  :)
EB: How long have you been in business?
NJD: My Etsy shop officially opened at the end of June, 2013. I'm still new to this and have SOOO many ideas for new pieces!! 
EB: How long have you been designing jewelry?
NJD: I started making jewelry about two years ago. It was close to Christmas, and I like to make handmade gifts for my friends. I had been really into knitting at the time, but didn't have enough time to make gifts for everyone. So I had a random idea to make some jewelry and I loved it!! I've been making jewelry ever since. 
EB: Where do you find your materials?
NJD:  I am a big supporter of small businesses. I try to purchase all of my materials from other Etsy shops. I don't feel like I need to make the most popular item out there, I want to be different, so I don't need to buy huge volumes of one item to make a necklace. 



This holiday season, please join me in supporting small businesses such as Natalie Jeanne Designs to do all or most of your shopping.
