One more day of 2016! This is also the last Friday of this year, and I’m here with the last Blogger Dossiers post for 2016 featuring Jenny! She blogs at Geekyposh and is active on Twitter and Instagram. I’ve enjoyed following her blog for the last year, and I’m really thrilled she agreed to be featured.
I’m Jenny, and I live in the Washington, DC area with my husband and 2 adorable cats. I work full-time as a web developer, which is pretty awesome because I’ve loved designing + coding websites since I was 11. I’m a bit obsessed with skincare, handbags, and shopping in general, but I’m also total geek at heart.
This might sound cliche, but it would be my wedding day, hands down. Not only was it a celebration of a new chapter in our lives, but to be surrounded by all our friends and family and have them share in our joy was an incredible experience. Plus, how often do you get to wear a fabulous poofy dress and have people fawn over you? :P
Listening to this song reminds me of the beach trips we used to take!

What is one life hack you absolutely adore and use on a regular basis?
I love repurposing candle jars, and to easily remove the leftover wax, I just put the jars in the freezer for a few hours. Once you take it out, just use a butter knife to pop the frozen wax out, wash the jar, and voila!
Where is a place you would to visit in the future and why?
Egypt! I’ve been fascinated with ancient Egyptian history since 4th grade, so I would love to see all the historical sights. Plus I’ve always wanted to ride a camel in the desert!
What is one skincare product you cannot live without?
Sunscreen! UVA rays is one of the main culprits that causes your skin to age, so applying a broad spectrum sunscreen is a must for me every morning. I love Japanese sunscreens in general because they provide great UVA/UVB protection and without being heavy, but my favorite is the La Roche-Posay Anthelios XL SPF50+ Fluid Ultra-Light, which has awesome UVA protection and is still relatively lightweight. Plus it works great as a makeup primer!
What is the funniest thing you have encountered lately?

What is one thing you hope will happen in 2017?
Hmm, if I had to pick one, that would be to save more, which means spending less. This past year I’ve been cleaning out a lot of stuff around the house after reading Marie Kondo’s book, and it made me realise how much money I could’ve saved if I had been smarter about my purchases. I’ve been more mindful about it these past few months, but I definitely want to do better next year!
