My BIG TIME Girl Crush, Jackie Wachter

It’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a girl crush around here. Because well, honestly, I don’t crush on just anyone… But this lady, Jackie Wachter is oh so crush-worthy! Jackie and I were literally set up on a girlfriend date a few years ago. Our mutual friend Eric kept telling us about one another. We tried a few times to meet, but as life often goes with busy ladies, our plans kept getting postponed. Fast forward like 10 months and we finally met at The Plum (Jackie’s suggestion because she really is so cool) and our one hour lunch turned into an entire afternoon. And a beautiful, inspirational and truly supportive friendship was born.

You know that friend that always has their finger on the pulse of what is cool? Like not too cool for school, but humble cool? THAT IS JACKIE! Like when my hubby and I want to try somewhere new for date night, I call Jackie for suggestions – she’s that friend! So who better to tap for ideas about what she’s obsessed with, right? AND, the leather company, FOUNT, that she and her husband founded is a whole other level of awesomeness and one of my personal obsessions!

Girl Crush, What is it??

It’s time for a girl crush again! One of the best aspects of my job is the girl gang I get to meet and the really cool stuff they know about and are willing to share. If you’re a newer reader or don’t remember, (I haven’t crushed in a while) the Girl Crush feature is when I highlight one of the awesome women I have the honor of knowing, and she dishes on some of her favorite things and current obsessions. It’s kind of like having coffee with your gal pal and swapping fab finds.

Tina Kanis: Girl Crush and Friend

This crush is a twofer (a two for one) in a few different ways. Tina is both a friend and a crush. Tina and I believe we were destined to be friends, so much so that we both think it might have been orchestrated from above. She’s lives in Michigan and I’m in Ohio (you know that whole football thing) but we got over that quickly…

We first met when we were randomly assigned to be roommates at a stylist event in NYC 6 years ago. And at the end of our very fun 3 day stint in the big apple, exchanged emails, cell numbers and of course, became Facebook friends…

What’s random isn’t random…

Fast forward a couple of years, and in March of 2016 on a seemingly random night…
