Meet Jess Keys of

The Golden Girl Blog has been a pipe dream of mine for awhile. The blog serves as a creative outlet where I share and express my love of, well everything. Fashion, food, craftiness, décor and travel are just some of my favorite things to write about. See more at:

Personal style in one word

Favorite Designer

I can't pick just one! But I love Chloe, Rebecca Minkoff and Alice + Olivia.

Essential Accessory

Go-To Beauty Product

Josie Maran Argan Facial Oil and Ponds cold cream. I am far from a beauty product snob but these are two that I will always stand by.
