Can you believe it's May already? We can't.  A new month means... a new guest editor! And a new guest editor means... new personalized product picks! This month's guest editor is the fabulous Jen of Balancing Beauty & Bedlam! Jen's blog shares everything from frugal fashion (which we love) to cooking, to DIY projects, finance, family, and more!

"As a mom of five blessings and full time family manager, Jen Schmidt has learned to balance and embrace both the beauty and bedlam of every day life. As a motivational speaker, worship leader and writer, Jen shares with humor and authenticity on a myriad of topics, many which fall under her passion for understanding “It’s the little things, that are the big things.”

Her practical, yet tangible, lifestyle ideas encourages others to open their eyes to a “living on less” mentality.

She lives it, and invites you along for the journey." (

We did a quick question & answer interview with Jen... Here's what we learned about her style:

1) What three words best describe your style?

That is so hard to say because honestly, my style changes all the time and I am open to trying new things. I can swing from a “Gap, Anthro, or J Crew Classic look to Bohemian (on those days I am feeling more wild) all in one week, but I guess I would lean towards more J Crew.  

I am not afraid of colors of patterns, but when in a pinch, I  will go with more classic clothing choices and accessorize with something a bit more bold. I love Chandelier earrings, Bubble Necklaces, but will even lean towards an Audrey Hepburn look for a fancy Little Black Dress occasion.

2) Who is your celebrity fashion crush?

No huge fashion crush right now but I typically always like Carrie Underwood’s choices.

3) What is your go to item of clothing, shoe, and accessory (3 different items)

Little Black Dress , Statement jewelry/scarves, boots

4) What is your favorite current Cents of Style item?

Mini Teardrop statement necklace

We are so excited to have Jen as our guest editor, and can't wait to share her Cents of Style accessory "picks" and special promotions with you! Stay tuned...
