About


Hello there! Welcome to Writing in Red Lipstick - a blog dedicated to those aspiring to be well dressed, well read, and well traveled.

I'm Jess, a twenty-something blogger, podcaster, and content specialist living in the DC 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 love of 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!

As for me, I'm a writer at heart (with a BA in English) an INFP, and have a love for astrology and vintage style. I'm fascinated by Tudor England, anything Art Deco, the 1970s, Dolly Parton, and the Kardashians. 

I have made the decision to support cruelty-free beauty and healthcare brands, and do my best to feature only those on this blog. Read about that here. 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, going hiking or taking a yoga class, 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.
