About Jamie

Hi, thank you so much for stopping by my blog! As you can tell from the name, I’m a fan of fashion and dessert (basically anything chocolate). I currently live in Las Vegas since my husband is in the Air Force, but Seattle will always feel like home. I graduated from the University of Washington and have a professional background in marketing and PR. When I’m not shooting outfit photos for the blog or baking a new recipe, you can find me listening to country music, trying a new restaurant with my husband or working out (yoga classes are my fav). I also love traveling! Nashville and the Caribbean have been some of my favorite places, but I still need to cross Europe and the East Coast off of my bucket list!

About Treats and Trends

Established in 2012, Treats and Trends focuses on finding affordable fashion and creating sweet treats. When it comes to clothing, I’m all about building a wardrobe with neutral, timeless pieces. This may seem counterintuitive with Trends being in the name of my blog, but when you have a solid foundation of basics it’s easier to mix in a trend or two, like I did with this poncho. Having a variety of versatile pieces also helps you save money because you can create new outfits with items you already have. You don’t have to spend a fortune to have a stylish wardrobe. It’s rare when I buy an item over $100 and I love keeping my eyes out for a good sale! If I do feature an item that is more expensive (because some things are worth investing in), I will be sure to link more affordable options, too.

As for the Treats, I enjoy making desserts that are as cute as they are delicious. It’s not just about satisfying my sweet tooth—I want to share all of the cute things that go along with baking, like pretty cake stands, copper measuring cups and adorable cupcake decor. The fun kitchen accessories excite me almost as much as a perfect chocolate chip cookie! My love of baking (and chocolate) definitely came from my mom, and over the years I’ve enjoyed expanding my skillset and challenging myself with new recipes (Foodgawker is like a black hole for me). I love that this blog allows me to share my experiences with readers who also want to learn more about baking.
