THE HOLIDAY EDIT MAGAZINE

West Hollywood
HOLIDAY GUIDE
  /  
November 27, 2017

It’s here! The Margo & Me Holiday Edit! In preparing this issue, which went from fun idea to labor of love, I realized that I was creating what was not only a holiday magazine for Margo & Me, but I was actually living, breathing and creating my dreams.

You see, all of my life (long before the Devil Wears Prada; although watching it 764 times may have inspired me a little more), I’ve wanted to create magazines. Perhaps I was born in the wrong time for publishing, but my path took me in a different direction and I’ve never looked back.

However, as I sat down to write this, it hit me. I remembered that fiery passion inside of me from when I was younger. From the pages of French Vogue to Harper’s and Marie Claire, I so deeply admired and appreciated each and every curated page, font style, the way words were flirtatiously written, and of course, the images that would then end up torn and tacked carefully to my inspiration board. I dreamed of being on the cutting room floor; the chaos of it all thrilled me. And while the pages came together just how I imagined here, it all happened just a little bit differently than imagined years ago, and I am not the least bit mad about it.

So without further adieu, I present to you the Margo & Me Holiday Edit: 32 interactive pages curated and designed by me to inspire your holiday shopping experience. Prepare yourself, as each item you see is clickable so you can shop exactly what you’re seeing down to what I am wearing in each phoot – just hover and click. There’s even new video content, and so much more!

Please enjoy, and I can’t wait to continue to make these seasonally for you. Thanks for helping to make my dreams come true; it’s the best gift you could ever give.

Wishing each of you the most magical holiday season!

And special thanks to my incredible team, Freddie, Chelsea and Lorina for helping me throw this last-minute idea together in less than two weeks! Thank you for loving my ideas and always supporting my creative visions, no matter how crazy. It was also so great to finally be able to collaborate with Karen Rosalie on the flatlay image; she is a creative genius when it comes to these things. And of course, Cibelle Levi, who constantly amazes me with her illuminating captures and challenges me to raise the bar. You know what they say, “teamwork makes the dream work!”

Beautiful work Jenny! You are a woman of so many talents. its amazing. Have an amazing holiday season 🙂

What an honor having you here and thank you for the kind words!

I left a note on Instagram, but wanted to let you know here where it actually lives. I L O V E the magazine! It was such a cool surprise to see that it was interactive. How much time did you and your husband devote to it? Oh! The part where you told us what a typical day in your life was like was fantastic. I’ve often wondered how you stay so thin when I see all these great events you get to attend that revolve around eating. Can’t wait to see more of them next year!

Thank you so much, Tori! I’m BEYOND happy to hear that you enjoyed it! We definitely poured a couple weeks into it, but WELL worth it. Can’t wait for you to see what’s to come in spring, xx

[…] thought Jenny did such an amazing job with her holiday magazine. Her photography is always […]

Ok, woah! This is exactly why you’re my favorite blogger. You take your readers to extreme excitement! I love reading about the tips you have to share and I also love watching you kill it in this blogging industry. You inspire me to go an extra mile with my blog. Thanks for being bold!

Wow that means the world to me! I always believe in going the extra mile for all my lovely supporters like you. So thankful for you lovely!

You are a wonderful person! I looooved scrolling through the pages and could not help but wonder how talented and inspiring you are to come up with such a beauty!
The page on good ol’ manners especially appealed to me, seeing how easy it is these days for people to take such forgranted. Kudos and I look forward to the spring release.

Wow what a sweet compliment, thank you! Seeing people react with so much love towards it makes me even that much more excited about the Spring issue.

OMG!!!! I am totally obsessed and impressed. Your magazine turned out sooooooooo goood and can’t wait for the Spring edition. In college, I was the editor in chief of The Bull Magazine and went through the entire process of creating a magazine, from the font size to the page layouts. You just brought me back to the memories of the blood, sweat and tears I put creating my magazine. I have so much respect for you! I too feel like I was born in the wrong period and love the idea of putting together something so amazing. Thank you Jenny!!

Thank you Christina! You’re so sweet!

I felt in love with a velvet wrap dress and sequin separates. I think sequins is the best way how to make yourself appear ready for Christmas! Love the way you styled black sequin blazer with silver wide-leg sequin pants.
Best,
Ines from http://inestrend.com/

I absolutely agree with you! Velvet and sequin are my favorite trends this season!

Hi Jenny! I’ve never left a comment on any posts of the bloggers I follow– you’re my favorite and I’m a huge fan of your work (YouTube videos especially)– but this blew me away. I’ve always wanted to create magazines, too, and the fact you pulled this off so beautifully is a testament to your talent. You’re doing something no one else is in your field: you’re telling stories through your photographs, stories everyone wants to be a part of. Thank you for creating the world of Margo and Me to leave others inspired to lead beautiful lives! You’ve certainly inspired me. I wish you all the success and happiness in the world! You deserve it.

Aw that is the sweetest thing I’ve read! That makes me sooo happy, I want nothing more than to inspire people to chase their dreams! Thank you so much lovely!

Literally, I want all of those outfits!! The sequins page gives me all the feels! You should try doing one of these every month- or at least every quarter!! I think the online version is even better than a physical magazine!! So so so cute! Well done darling!
