MY WEBSHOP: MEGA BLACK FRIDAY SALE! 20% Extra discount only for Jack and Jane followers with discount code: JJJ


We launched our business website! [Video]

After months of building a website that includes all the things we love, I finally launched it last week. This means we've been so very busy with businessy things that we haven't been out much to vlog. The website incudes a magikal blog, a Moon gallery, a Wanderlust shop, and is connected to ask our sparkly socials. The aim is to have this as a foundation and build on it as we figure out what works and what doesn't. The first collection is live, The Zodiac Zentangle Goddesses, and there's a blog to give it a back story. We would love people to have a browse and let us know what you think. There will be exclusive collections just for Facebook page and Instagram so don't forget to pop over and follow those. Thank you for your continued support on this channel. Over the next month we'll be sharing lots of Christmassy/yule things AND we are headed to Disneyland Paris in 9 sleeps, so make sure you've subscribed so you don't miss all that magic!Sending out lots of loveJeneen & Luna

I have been obsessed with learning about NFT's and the Metaverse over the past few weeks/ months. I truly believe that it will change the way we think about, and do, eCommerce.Majority of NFT and metaverse projects i've came across are pump & dumps taking advantage of the new folks who are exploring and learning. Together, we will find where the real value and opportunity lies within the NFT and metaverse space that's growing rapidly.________________Join the Micro-Brand Accelerator to duplicate our seven figure blueprint and start your own eCommerce Brand so you can live life on your own terms: My New VLOG CHANNEL
