My name is Jamie, and I’m the voice of Cotton and Cabernet. But aside from being a style blogger, I’m really just an average 24-year-old girl with champagne taste and a beer budget.
I grew up in a town called Temecula, the wine capital of Southern California, but have spent the last five years living in two of my favorite cities; Nashville, and the Austin area. Straight out of high school, I went to school for Fashion Merchandising, and almost finished before I realized that my true passion in life was Journalism. I then went back and started my four years all over again. Although I’m a non-traditional student, I’m currently a senior at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism, from which I’ll graduate with my B.A. in Mass Media this fall.
I currently work for a PR firm in San Diego as a Social Media Specialist. I have a seriously wonderful boyfriend, Alex, who will one day get to fulfill his dream of being a guest blogger in an article titled How to talk sports with your man (I’m thinking about it). In my free time, I love spending time with my 90-pound German Shepherd, Ellie Lou, drinking six cups of coffee at the start of my day and one glass of wine at the end of it, and endlessly searching my favorite stores for budget-friendly styles.
