FEATURED: Vineyard Vines, Naples, Florida, at Waterside Shops
Monday, May 2, 2016 / Vlog Post Notes:
I am an introvert, so the last thing in the world I am comfortable doing is approaching not just one but two complete strangers to ask if they will let me get a video of us together. But, that’s exactly what I did when I had the opportunity to meet the founders of Vineyard Vines, Shep and Ian Murray. Last month, they held a party to celebrate the opening of their Naples store at Waterside Shops, so as nerve-wracking as it was, I asked to be introduced. (It’s amazing what I will do if it involves something classic. I love preppy clothing!) That video clip, as well as much more, is in today’s vlog.
Vineyard Vines began back in 1998, when the two brothers–who grew up in Connecticut and vacationed on Martha’s Vineyard as boys–quit their Manhattan desk jobs to begin selling fun and colorful men’s ties. Today, their classic preppy brand offers a full line of mens, womens, and childrens apparel in stores across the U.S.
I hope you enjoy coming along to the party.
Cheers! ~Janis Lyn Johnson

Love your lipsticks but in ingredients Ingredients
Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil* Euphorbia Cerifera (Candelilla) Wax* Caprylic/Capric Triglyceride Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil* Carthamus Tinctorius (Safflower) Oil* Retinyl Palmitate Tocopherol Lecithin Crithmum Maritimum (Sea Fennel) Extract* Bisabolol Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract* Iron Oxides Mica Hypericum Perforatum (St. John’s Wort) Extract Titanium Dioxide
I dont like Iron Oxides Mica Hypericum Perforatum,I think theyre not healthy.You know,chemical.I just love ingredients only herbal,theyre healthy.Have a great day!
Ronda, I agree with you. I wish there were no iron oxides in this lipstick. (Or titanium dioxide).It’s why I like 100 percent pure fruit pigmented lipsticks. But I like this brand for the rest of the ingredients. Most are ok. I do make compromises a bit since not one brand I have found yet is perfect. Ultimately I would also prefer 100% organic. Thank you for your comment! ~Janis
GREAT video!!! I wish I could have been there – too bad I was out of town. it looked like a lot of fun!! Actually, I almost feel like I WAS there after watching your video! You looked so cute – loved what you chose to wear! Pink is definitely your color.
Gail, thank you!! I wish you could have been there, too. I KNOW you would have enjoyed it. I do love pink. You look terrific in it, too, so it must be a blonde thing. 🙂 ~Janis
What a wonderful life you lead,enjoy!
I am very blessed, Emily, that’s true, and I am grateful every day for it. FYI, when I’m not filming my videos, my life isn’t as fashionable or glamorous as my videos may lead one to believe. I am quite the home body, in fact! I grocery shop, cook meals, or sit in front of the computer (for hours) in old shorts and a tee shirt, editing photos and videos! Thank you for watching my videos and commenting, Emily! ~Janis
Wanted to know what brand sandals you have on. They look super cute on you and they look so comfortable and I have been looking for something like those.Which brands you like for sandals and flats?
Thank you, Rose. These are by Vaneli. I like this brand because they offer narrow sizes, which I need, and they are not too expensive. I don’t really have a favorite brand in shoes or sandals. I go more by style and material than brand, I suppose. ~Janis
Oh thank you,I will check this brands sandals on website.You looked gorgeous in every single outfit,seems like you have a lot of fun in this vlog video.Vineyard vines store is amazing.Lets go togather(maybe one day for future) when is next vlog? Cant wait.Happy Weekend and happy mothers day beautiful!
Thank you, Rose! ~Janis
