Jamie Grimstad

Jamie is someone I've known for a few years now, and has always been an inspiration to me. Her blog, littlejamieg.com , covers all topics from food, fashion, beauty and fitness with her own creative touch. Get to know Jamie below! Xo Dylan

Dylan: What is your favorite place in the world?

Jamie: New York and London- it's a tie. New York is exciting and vibrant but London is sophisticated, peaceful and just happy.

D: Who or what keeps you motivated?

J: I know this sounds cliché, but really the people that I surround myself with, not to mention my audience and followers, are who keep me motivated. I have this habit- somewhat bad sometimes- of always wanting to please people around me- but not even that, my goal is to inspire, encourage and create, and the people I surround myself with are constantly encouraging me to do those things, even if they may be difficult at times.

D: What is your favorite restaurant at the moment?

J: Hmmm... I am a HUGE foodie and have a NYC restaurant list that I could probably turn into a book :) but... I recently went to Santina with my boyfriend and loved it. Defiantly go if you haven't been. 

D: What is your favorite meal to make?

J: When I go into the kitchen, I kind of let my creativity flow. Most recently, I played around with making poké bowls and it was so fun!

D: Who are your style icons?

J: Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Vera Wang, Sama and Haya Khadra.

D: Do you prefer working out in a gym or outside?

J: I am a huge runner so I spend a lot of time doing that outside, and I love it. I'm also a huge fan of boxing though- so, I guess you could say I like a combination of both. I like to keep things interesting.

D: What is your go-to makeup look?

J: Brown liner (above upper lashes and underneath lower lashes, NAKED palette for the eyes (I do something smokey), light concealer under my eyes, a clear-gloss or matte lip color.

D: What is your go-to skincare/ current skincare routine? 

J: I have recently gotten a lot more into beauty but my skincare routine is pretty simple. I swear by the Neutrogena Makeup Remover towelettes which I use at night before washing my face e with their cleanser and my Clarisonic. I moisturize with Clinique. In the morning, I do a mask- it makes me feel so fresh.

D: What is your go-to outfit?

J: Sneakers are always included, with either my dark grey ripped jeans, a cool shirt and heath jacket or a midi skirt and tank.

D: Warm or cold weather?

J: Cold.

D: Fancy restaurant or picnic?

J: Hmmm I LOVE picnics and casual settings are the best, but who doesn't like to dress up every once and a while?

D: What is your favorite article of clothing you own and why?

J: I love a good leather jacket. For me,it completes a look and adds something extra.

D: What is your favorite post workout snack?

J: Cherries- they are super good for recovery, and a watered down Gatorade.

D: What are your goals in the next year?

J: I really want to see some growth not only with my blog but with myself is well — creativity wise, I mean. I really want to transition into more of a “business” mode and really implement whatever strategies necessary into taking the next step. I have started doing social media consulting on the side which I really love, so definitely want to get more involved in that, helping people build their own platforms while I continue to do the same with my own….and there’s something coming soon on my site that I am excited to launch (hint hint it has to do with shopping :) ) which I am super excited about. 

D: Whos is your favorite artist (music)?

J:  I’ve been obsessed with Daya’s new album, because many of the songs have applied to my life recently….but also, someone else that I have actually been working with (and hopefully you will here here stuff soon). 

D: Favorite model at the moment?

J: Taylor Hill.

D: Fitness inspiration?

J:  Hannah Bronfman — but she’s a total inspiration, not just for fitness — I really look up to her.
