Jamie Sanders is a writer with 20+ years experience in fashion, beauty and lifestyle. After 12 years in New York City and a brief stint in Pittsburgh, she (finally) relocated to Los Angeles in 2015. She's created, shaped and written copy for some of the world's leading companies, including Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf Goodman, American Eagle Outfitters, Drybar, Tatcha, Sugarfina, Fabletics, Splendid and Ralph Lauren. Her work has also appeared in Harper's Bazaar, Allure, Glamour and Woman's World.

Jamie is the Editor-in-Chief of The Beauty of Life, which she started in January 2007. As she looked around her bedroom one fateful night, her eyes alighted on the Illume Violet Rose Candle ... and, just like that, the blog was born. But she really has a lifelong passion for beauty. Playing the Youngest Royal Child in The King and I at 4 years old (complete with a full face of pancake makeup and loads of black eyeliner) was just the beginning. Over the years, she's cultivated her obsessions of bold nail polish, candles, Bonne Bell Lip Smackers and gel cream moisturizers. And yes, she still has her two Caboodles from 1991!

When Jamie isn't working, you can find her exploring the restaurant and bar scene in LA, sporting Minnie ears at Disneyland, or trying to decide which of her 600 nail polish bottles will become her next manicure color.
