Hi there! I’m Jackie and I’m glad you’ve found my blog – I hope you continue to follow me and my musings. Cosmos + Cardigans is all about fun: fashion trends, style, beauty products, and of course shoes (what can I say, shoes are my weakness)! I also blog about things and people who inspire me, pop culture, great books to curl up with and health topics that pique my interest…and maybe even a recipe once in a while.

I blog for real women with realistic budgets. I am a bargain shopper, and I’m pretty good at it – very rarely do I pay retail for anything (although I do splurge once in a while). It’s the thrill of the hunt, ladies and I will share some of my secrets with you!

In the real world I am a marketing ‘guru’ for a construction company in Western Pennsylvania. I enjoy all things marketing: advertising, PR, social media, event coordination, and much more. I studied Communications at Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My husband, Oliver, and I met while studying at Duquesne and have been married for almost 8 years – wow, how time flies!

My personal style is a combination of classic and fashionista. I love experimenting with the latest trends, but also feel at home in the classics. I pride myself in the ability to know which pieces to spend money on, which are best purchased at bargain prices, and how to make the whole look come together.

I’m interested in what you think! Contact me thru the blog in the comments or email me any time at [ cosmosandcardigans@yahoo.com ] and hit me up on twitter at @jackieschumi.
