Hi, I'm Jessika!

I'm the blogger & founder of beautybyjessika.com. I'm a beauty enthusiast, planner junkie, fan of reality tv, and could pretty much eat pizza (rolls!) every other day. 

Born on Oahu and raised in a small town on the island of Kauai, I ended up back in Honolulu because I had a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend a private boarding school. After graduating from high school in 2009, I stayed in Honolulu to pursue my dream of becoming a news anchor. 

During my senior year of college I launched my first blog, Jessclassy, as a tool to hopefully land me a job in public relations in the beauty industry. (Still my dream!) 

After two years of working my butt off in internships and part time jobs, I finally landed my first big girl job in 2015. At that time I had already retired Jessclassy, but now that my colleagues are into makeup just as much as I am, I craved a space to share my passion with them. In 2016, I relaunched my blog as Beauty by Jessika and have been blogging since. 

When i'm not working on Beauty by Jessika (or at my full-time job), you can find me at home binge-watching Friends or out shopping. I also love a good sweat sesh and traveling. Random fact: I really want a puppy and have a secret Pinterest board of only the cutest.
