Meet our SOCIAL Babe of the month, Jennifer Worman (@redsolesandredwine)
This Chicago native loves a great glass of wine, (especially @socialsparkling) and a fabulous pair of shoes! Which sparked the name of her blog, Red Soles and Red Wine. Jennifer is a personal style, travel, beauty and foodie blogger, and the mother of two precious boys.
We were so excited to chat with Jennifer and learn more! You can read our interview with her below:
What's a typical day in your life look like?
Each day is a whirlwind! Different, but exciting. From checking emails to invoices to negotiations, I do this daily. I have photoshoots 1-2 times a week depending on how many collaborations I have and I write about 2 times a week on my blog. In addition, I have my kids 50% of the time, I'm a single mom to two boys. So I have to do all the mom stuff (groceries, cook, clean) and now home school too!
What are some of your passions?
I live life with passion! I love fashion, interior design, and traveling.
Describe what made you start your blog, Red Soles and Red Wine?
I started almost 9 years ago with the encouragement of my sister. She was blogging and thought after moving to a new city I would meet new friends through blogging! I had moved to Chicago from New York and didn’t know anyone here. While job searching and had time to start writing and sharing my passions. Who knew it would become my full-time job years later!
Check out her blog post featuring SOCIAL:
What's your favorite thing about being a full-time blogger?
The people, experiences, and opportunities. I truly love and appreciate everything that comes my way.
If you could do a collab with any designer who would it be and why?
I love so many designers and brands! This question is hard. I would have to say Chanel! My dream would actually be to go to a Paris Fashion Week and go to the Chanel runway show.
Do you have any advice for women who want to get into blogging?
If you love blogs, sharing and writing, just do it! Always try things before thinking you can’t. Find and share your passions and stick to it. I find hard work, passion, and hustle always wins!
Who are your biggest influences?
My parents and my sister. They motivate me to want to do more and live life happy.
What's your favorite restaurant/spot in Chicago?
Another hard question! I am a huge foodie so I can’t pick just one. Gibsons Italia, Le Colonial, Kai Zan, are just a few of the many Chicago spots I love.
What’s next for you?
I’ve been focusing a lot on my home, self-care, and taking care of my kids. With 2020, I’m taking it day by day and appreciating all that I have.
What speaks to you most about SOCIAL?
When I think of Social Sparkling, I think about women supporting women. I love working with companies where it’s not only about their product but how they embrace the community and lift each other up. I LOVE SOCIAL!
