It all started with a candle. As Jamie Allison Sanders looked around her bedroom in January 2007, her eyes alighted on the Illume Violet Rose Candle -- and, just like that, The Beauty of Life was born. But Jamie really has a lifelong passion for beauty. Accessorizing her Barbies and 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) were just the beginning. Over the years, she's cultivated her obsessions of bold nail polish, candles, Bonne Bell Lip Smackers and bouncy blowouts. And yes, she still has her two Caboodles from 1991!
Jamie spends her days as a fashion copywriter and, after 12 years in New York City and a brief stint in Pittsburgh, recently moved to Los Angeles. Her work has appeared in campaigns for some of the nation's leading retailers including Bloomingdale's, Bergdorf Goodman, Henri Bendel, American Eagle Outfitters, Aerie, Splendid, Ella Moss, T3 Micro and Ralph Lauren.
