Best Moments of 2017

Jessi Malay best moments of 2017 lifestyle family baby engagement pregnancy

Jessi Malay best moments of 2017 lifestyle family baby engagement pregnancy

Happy 2018 my lovelies!! I hope you all had an amazing NYE and I’m so excited to see what the New Year brings! For those of you that missed my IG post, unfortunately, I spent the last 3 days in the hospital..not exactly how I wanted to ring in the new year :( But for now I’m so grateful to be back home with my baby and husband. While I was in the hospital, it gave me a chance to reflect on 2017, a year that’s changed everything! From growing my business in ways I only dreamed about, traveling the world with brands I grew up worshipping, getting engaged and married to my soulmate and partner in every sense of the word, to most special of all, welcoming Alessandra into this world!

FendiResort17 x Jessi Malay in Fendi in Havana Cuba

1.3.17 Exactly 1 year ago today!! I started off 2017 in dreamy Havana, showing off Fendi’s 2017 Resort Collection! Working with Fendi has always been a distant dream of mine so to get to start off this way meant everything to me. Cuba was also a place I’ve always wanted to visit, with all of it’s colorful buildings and architecture, the salsa music and dancing, and being that Gabriel is a quarter Cuban made it that much more special. So basically it was the perfect start to a new year :)

1.7.17 Attending the Golden Globes for my very first time and having my red carpet glam tutorial aired on E! during the pre-show! For as long as I can remember, I’ve watched and admired E! and all of their chic hosts! This was such a pinch-me moment I’ll forever cherish! A few weeks prior to the Golden Globes, I filmed a segment for E! on how to achieve the top 3 beauty trends you’re bound to see on the red carpet. The tutorial aired on E! right before the Golden Globes red carpet special, I had my family record it because I was on the actual red carpet when it first aired!

Jessi Malay Fendi Resort Collection

1.25.17 Just a couple weeks after my trip to Cuba, we set off to London to shoot a commercial for L’Oréal’s new Infallible Total Cover Foundation!! This was the first of several amazing L’Oréal trips during 2017. I’m so grateful for all of the amazing opportunities from my L’Oréal fam this past year! While in London, I also had a chance to shoot more from Fendi!

3.6.17 My very first Paris Fashion Week and it was even better than I could have imagined! Ever since I started the blog, I’ve been attending New York Fashion week, but have always dreamt of going to Paris Fashion Week as the ultimate runway/couture experience. So grateful for this opportunity, also with my L’Oréal fam. I saw some incredible shows like Off White, Haider Ackermann, Izzey Miyake and John Galliano!

Jessi Malay Z Gallerie Makeover

4.11.17 Our new home makeover with Z Gallerie!! I have always had a huge passion for interior design, so I was beyond excited to work with one of my favorite furniture companies, Z Gallerie to create the apartment of my dreams! Z Gallerie’s dream team was able to take my vision to a whole new level and create a space that was warm, inviting, elegant and reflected my love for fashion! If any of you are looking for a full redesign or just a few updates, I hope this space can inspire you too!

Jessi Malay's Home Makeover with Z Gallerie

Our little sanctuary ♥

5.1.17 Rome with Bulgari for the launch of their new fragrance, Goldea! Rome was one of my favorite trips from 2017. Bulgari made this trip so amazing in every way! I’ll never forget them shutting down the Spanish Steps for their launch event, and seeing Bella Hadid strut down to present the launch of the fragrance alongside Bulgari’s CEO, Jean-Christophe Babin. What made this trip even more special was discovering the city of romance with Gabriel! It was always a dream of ours to go together! We ended up extending our trip and enjoying all the amazing food, sites, history and lots of gelato :) We fell even more in love, and it was just weeks after this trip that G proposed!

5.26.17 Attending my very fist Cannes Film Festival with L’Oreal and walking the red carpet! I’ve been to red carpets many times before this, but Cannes was a whole new ball game and much crazier than I thought! Read on to see my full recap from my Cannes Film Festival experience.

Jessi Malay Proposal and Engagement

06.24.17 ♥ The day I said YES!! The most beautiful and surprising proposal from the love of my life! For those of you who missed the full story click here :) Can’t wait for our Hawaii wedding with auricles friends and family September this year!!

7.4.17 The Hamptons for 4th of July weekend with my Revolve fam!! Revolve always makes sure it’s a weekend to remember. ♥  So grateful for another amazing year with my Revolve fam and being surrounded by such a beautiful and talented group of women!

Jessi Malay Pregnancy Announcement Beach Photoshoot

07.23.17 Our baby announcement!! At this point I was 19 weeks pregnant! We couldn’t wait to announce our pregnancy and wanted to do something special to capture this time in our lives. I remember waiting for my bump to come in so we could do this shoot! Our dear friend @photobyvincent captured this moment so perfectly, I’m so in love with these photos and they hold such a special place in my heart! Looking back, I can’t believe how fast the time has gone by and that our babygirl is here with us today!

Can’t wait until she fits into these little shoes!!

Jessi Malay Baby Gender Reveal Party 2

07.23.17 Finding our we’re having a GIRL!! For those of you who watched our pregnancy vlogs, it took us much longer than expected to find out our baby’s sex..she was hiding in every ultrasound! So finally this same week, our doctor was able to discover the gender and we threw this very impromptu gender reveal party in 4 DAYS! This was such a special moment because it was the first time all our close family and friends got together to celebrate our girl.

Jessi Malay and Lisa Adams LA Closet Design

8.17.17 My DREAM Closet Reveal!! I partnered up with Lisa of LA Closet Design, the mastermind for the closets of stars such as Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Tyra Banks, and Monique Lhuillier to name a few. I’ve always dreamt of having a custom closet in my home, somewhere where I can put outfits together, make-up looks, and create fun and interesting content for you guys! I got to embrace this amazing closet and vanity space for the next few months after it was completed before I found out we’re expecting! Since this was our only extra bedroom, we had to make this a nursery for Alessandra. I was so sad to see my closet go, but while transforming this room into the nursery, I realized we were almost able to keep the entire foundation of the closet..just without all my shoes and accessories lol. I love that now I can have my vanity space which doubles up as a work space, so while Alessandra naps, I can get some work done and experiment with new makeup looks!

Jessi Malay Baby shower

11.12.17 Celebrating our babygirl at the most beautiful baby shower I could’ve dreamed of!! Still in awe everytime I look back at these photos! Everything was perfection, from the gorgeous balloon backdrops, floral arrangements, sleek furniture, party goods, and a dreamy dessert table that was almost too pretty to eat!! It was such a magical day filled with close friends and family and I couldn’t think of a more perfect way to welcome Alessandra! ♥

Jessi Malay x Dolce and Gabbana

11.20.17 Partnering with one of my all time favorite brands, Dolce & Gabbana, and Saks Fifth Avenue to show off their new Makeup Collection, Fall In Bloom! This look was one of my favorite makeup looks I ever created! It was all about creating a seasonal transition that felt refreshing and reminiscent of spring and summer, but still sultry enough for fall and winter. I’m so happy with how these beauty shots turned out!

Birth story baby girl mommy blogger

12.12.17 Meet Alessandra Marie Santiago, 6lbs 8oz with her daddy’s eyes and the sweetest smile! This is a love like I’ve never known..

Jessi Malay Family Baby Newborn

12.19.17 Our first week as a family! Nothing could have prepared us for these first few weeks as new parents..between trying to recover from a long labor and delivery, then having to hit the ground running with a newborn after not sleeping for days while waiting for my milk to come in, to getting the hang of feeding every 2 hrs around the clock, it’s been a huge adjustment period to say the least! But I wouldn’t trade it for anything, I love my new family and can’t wait for more sweet, precious moments together. Incase you missed it, read our birthstory and 1st week as a family!

Jessi Malay holiday family card

12.25.17 Our first Christmas card as a family!! The greatest Christmas gift ever! So crazy looking back on the holidays last year, when we were traveling constantly, working around the clock and missing home and spending time with our families. This year, we were so excited to be spending our first Christmas as a family in our home!

Wishing you loves an amazing 2018, full of happiness, good health and lots of love! I want to thank all of you for being such a big part of this incredible year. I feel like we’ve really become more closely connected on a personal level.. As I opened up more about my real life, so did you, and I thank your that! So excited for all that 2018 has in store!

Love you guys more than you know!

XOXO, Jessi
