  • About

    I’m Jen. I’m just another sarcastic, straight-haired brunette from New Jersey with leather boots and a Louis Vuitton. But, I happen to adore blogging…and all things Hoboken. I started this blog in an effort to discover all of the amazing local food, fashion, fun, and people that Hoboken has to offer. It has grown into a lifestyle website about Hoboken and Jersey City with over 20 contributors — all which add to the diverse and exciting Hudson County gold coast!

    Things you will find on Hoboken Girl via my {and my contributors‘} experiences:

    – Events: {We host them, promote them, share them, and write about them — follow along and enjoy being a part of this vibrant community}.

    – News: {Weekly updates on what is happening in Hudson County — so you’re in the know}.

    – Food + Drink: {I/my contributors often ghost dine in various restaurants around town — who knows where we’ll eat/drink next!}

    – Style: {Besides loving J.Crew, Banana, Nordstrom, Zara, and BCBG – with a side of Forever 21 thrown in for kicks, I am a huge fan of vintage & local Hoboken boutiques and do most of my shopping locally, when possible. Ask us anything about where or what you can buy in Hoboken when it comes to fashion – and make sure you’re dressed to the 9s because our HG street team is always ready to feature stylish ladies in our street style series}.

    – Nightlife: {Where to go, what to drink, cocktails you must put on your tab}

    – Manicure Mondays: {Yes, the best spots for your mani/pedi — because really, it’s so hard to decide and you need someone to test the waters!}

    – Boutiques: {Style picks, finds, gift guides — we’ve got the scoop}.

    -Adoptable {and Local} Hoboken Pets {In conjunction with the Liberty Humane Society, we promote adoptable pets of the week and also feature local residents’ dogs in our Dogs of Hoboken series. You don’t want to miss the cuteness.}

    – Beauty {Ask us anything beauty-related. Chances are I’ve been there, or I know someone that can get you the answer}.

    – Fitness {Where to workout, what classes to take, etc, etc — and our fitness reviewers’ scores of local gyms are super helpful in your quest for flat abs and toned triceps}.

    – Health {While kicking back a cocktail now and then, you can also find us drinking something green or filled with kale and attempting to be gluten and dairy free – minus Sunday Fundays and boozy brunches. There are lots of great places in Hoboken that cater to health nuts like me – just ask!}.

    -Real Estate {Insider tips on living, renting, and buying in Hoboken and Jersey City!}. It can be done.

    Hoboken Girl of the Week {Showcasing the best of the best in inspiring women throughout our community. Girl power — channeling Spice Girls ’02}.

    – Hoboken Guys: {Yes…it’s hard to imagine that Hoboken “Girl” would have anything to do with the fellas, but we have the lowdown with a crew of Mile Square men}.

    – Travels: {Any places we’ve been outside of Hoboken that you MUST visit}.

    – Hudson County Weddings: {Fresh ideas about getting married in and around Hoboken and Jersey City}.

    -Anything else girly, Hoboken-centric, or Jerseylicious that you need to know — including gluten free eats, careers, event planning, parties, and more.

    • Hi there,

      Big fan. Really enjoy your tips and reviews of local places, this has become my new blog. Just have 2 questions:

      1. Do you have any suggestions for a salon that does threading?
      2. Do you have a team of people, or is it just you running this show?

      Thank you! Keep up the fantastic blog!
