Stylehive: Who are your top 3 Stylehivers?
Gosh, it is really difficult to pick my top 3 Stylehivers as I have seen SO MANY stylish items and Stylehivers with so much style!

1. freakstar – she’s definitely #1 because I really love all the items I’ve seen on the, The Artful Home. Her style and taste seem to mirror mine in many respects.
2. designmilk - another top favorite, for their design classic picks.
3. HippiePrincess – her taste and style closely mirror mine and she shows an eclectic taste for design. I think the fact that both of us come from a family of creative talent possibly accounts for our appreciation of style and design.

SH: If money was no issue and you could buy one product from the Hive, what would it be?

Wow, buy just one product? I think it’s difficult to narrow down to one. OK, let me say The Mantra Bed. I love feng shui and canopies so if I couldn’t have a Dedon Collection piece, I’d go for The Mantra Bed; and if that as on backorder, I’d maybe consider the Squaring.

SH: What would be the title of your autobiography?

Jaguar Julie, a woman of eclectic tastes!

SH: How would you describe your personal style?

My personal style is eclectic and depends on the occasion. To ask my hubby, he would tell you I really need to live in New York City because I love to dress up. He’s always telling me, you need to dress down; put on some jeans! I think I should have lived in Hollywood back in the 50s. A previous European coworker told me he thought I was very Parisian in style, manner and dress.

SH: What reality show would you be on?

I’ve already appeared on Florida’s Flamingo Fortune lottery game show several years ago and won a small amount of money. My hubby and many of my friends say I really need to be on a show with a contest as they saw how excited I’ve gotten over Stylehive’s contests! I’d like to be a judge on American Idol or maybe Dancing with the Stars.

SH: What is always in your bag?

This is an easy question! I always have my lipstick no matter where I go! It’s Revlon Amethyst Smoke--it’s been a favorite brand and color for a number of years.

Coffee, coffee, coffee and a South Beach Diet High Protein Cereal Bar--Peanut Butter. But, since I’m going into a new phase of my life, working with a startup company, I’ll be revamping how I start my morning. Most likely it will mean a trip to the gym, then coffee!

SH: What do you do when you’re not Hiving?
I’m the CMO of a new company, wearing many hats, developing marketing materials and product information among other things. I also have my own company, Jaguar Julie Designs--I sell online, have my own websites, Google Blog, and Squidoo lenses. So, I’m always connected to the computer somehow during the day. My hubby says I can put in over 40 hours during the week on the computer.

Positive Results with AVEENO® Positively Ageless™

When I received my Official BzzGuide for AVEENO® Positively Ageless™, my interest was piqued as I read about the ingredients in the moisturizer I was about to sample. Hmmm, the letter that came with my package said AVEENO® "has used everything from oatmeal and soy to lavender and chamomile in their ACTIVE NATURALS® line." Well, all those sound good to me.

A different kind of ingredient made me stop and read further, "shitake mushrooms help prevent collagen breakdown." Shitake mushrooms? Hey, wait a minute, I think I heard something about mushrooms in moisturizers this past week on one of the NBC talk shows. Checking out the facts in my BzzGuide, I learned that "shitake mushrooms were first cultivated in Asia over 1,000 years ago and have long been recognized by herbalists for their medicinal purposes." Count me in as someone open to trying something new, especially if it has a history of that many years!

As a BzzAgent, I've been trying the daily moisturizer with SPF 30 since the first week of March 2007 and can report that my skin is looking brighter and feeling softer. I love the container, but more importantly, how great my skin feels and looks. Now you can try a sample for free!
I'm taking this product on vacation with me to use as my facial sunscreen product.

I'll be back in about 10 days to give you my feedback!

POSITIVELY AGELESS™ is a new line of anti-aging facial care products from AVEENO®, the leader in ACTIVE NATURALS®. These products contain a breakthrough formula, with Natural Shitake Complex, that works with your unique skin, accelerating your own cell renewal process. In fact, 73% of women saw reduced lines and wrinkles in just 4 weeks, revealing healthy, younger-looking skin.

DAILY MOISTURIZER WITH SPF 30. A nourishing daily moisturizer that visibly reduces the signs of aging and helps prevent future damage with advanced sun protection.

Follow me at Stylehive

Follow me at Stylehive. Where have I been lately you're asking? Why I'm over at Stylehive!

Update: I remember when I first joined Stylehive. Man that was a lot of years ago. I was pretty active there until I discovered Squidoo ... which then seemed to occupy a good portion of my time.

Thinking back on Stylehive ... they were the Pinterest of their time. We Stylehivers were pinning pictures of stylish stuff way before Pinterest came on the scene. It was great to be in on the action with all the stylish members.

So much has happened in the past decade. Wonder what stylish site will be the next thing?

On December 23, 2006, I posted a message in my blog about a missing person, Jessica Ann Fender. She had been missing since December 7, 2006.

It is with great sadness, that I learned today, Jessica's body was found on February 9, 2007, in a ditch MacArthur Boulevard and N.W. 178th Street in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. It appears she had been murdered.

Not only is the family trying to cope with their grief, but is also faced with the financial hardship of their daughter's burial.
