It Girl: Janine Renee

I have this friend Janine. She’s super fun, wicked smart and crazy ambitious. You NEED to meet her. Because she’s this month’s It Girl!

So wait – what is an “it girl?” A woman who has her shit together. Someone who is doing amazing things both personally and professionally. Someone who is affecting positivity in her local community. Someone that, simply put, people look up to.

Read on and meet Janine, official It Girl.

What is the mission of your site/blog?

My blog started as a creative outlet back in 2009 when I moved out on my own for the first time. Since then, it has evolved into a place where I share tips, advice and stories about my entrepreneurial ride and being a first time founder. I hope to inspire other young business minded women to start what they believe in, be persistent and be resilient.


What’s on your playlist?

In these cold winter months, sometimes you need a little pep in your step. My Beat the Winter Blues playlist is good for running, indoor cycling or hitting the punching bag.


What was the last thing you ate?

Meat, veggies and eggs. Every. Single. Day. This isn’t my normal routine but I challenged myself to Whole30 at the start of the year so all of my usual favorites (red wine and expensive cheese) have been replaced with brussels and fish.


What was the best book you’ve read recently?

I usually read business books but while I was on my honeymoon, I read Amy Poehler’s Yes Please! and I really enjoyed it.


Who is your celebrity crush?

George Clooney, Matthew McConaughey, Justin Timberlake… all studs.


What’s your ultimate guilty pleasure?

Disney movies are totally my guilty pleasure. If I’m feeling down, I put on one of my favorite Disney movies (The Little Mermaid at the top) and sit on the couch in my pajamas, reciting all of the words in my head. There was one morning, I worked from home and played Frozen in the background on repeat, all day long.



Know an “It Girl,” or would you like to be featured yourself (it’s okay, I won’t judge)? Drop me a note.
