2020... where do we even begin? The year started off with what we all thought seemed like it was going to be perfect.. and then Covid happened. There were mandatory lockdowns, quarantine and face masks were introduced. Even our fave celebrities & royals were captured wearing face masks.
Who doesn’t love a celeb wedding? Unfortunately due to covid there weren't many weddings this year… cue the engagements!! Hello RINGS!
Demi Lovato shocked us all with a whirlwind romance. Max Enrich being her beau as they went from being in lockdown together during a pandemic, to being engaged just four months after their relationship began. Unfortunately, shortly after the engagement the whirlwind romance started to dwindle and the couple have now chosen to go their separate ways.
In other engagement news, Ariana Grande is recently engaged AGAIN?! She announced in a cute and cuddly photo on instagram that her and boyfriend Dalton Gomez had gotten engaged. Awww 😍
The cutest proposal award goes to.. Drumroll please.. Jena Dewan and Steve Kazee!! Rumour has it while the couple were doing a maternity photoshoot, Steve got down on one knee and asked Jena to marry him! Sooo cute! The couple have since welcomed a beautiful baby boy into the world.
Lily Collins and her one of a kind custom ring definitely takes the cake! The ring is designed by Irene Neuwirth and includes a one of a kind rose cut diamond. Ah yes please!
Victoria’s Secret Model Jasmine Tookes recently got engaged to her beau Juan David Borreo who works at Snapchat, with a giant engagement ring by Ritani. It is said to be a 7 carat oval cut diamond set in 18kt yellow gold. Talk about stunning!! Not to mention it features a hidden halo with diamond embellished prongs.
There were so many adorable celeb babies born this year, and it's hard to pick our faves!! Gigi Hadid and Zayn Malik welcomed a beautiful baby girl into the world on September 23rd and are yet to release her name. Sophie and Joe Jonas never in fact announced they were pregnant to the world. Sophie was captured by paparazzi during the pandemic with a bump and welcomed a baby girl into the world in July, rumoured to be named Willa. Other celebs that announced their new arrivals were:
Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom with Daisy Dove Bloom
Jena Dewan and Steve Kazee with Callum Michael Rebel Kazee
Lea Michele and Zandy Reich with Ever Leo Rich.
Well, I guess it’s time to break down everything that happened in Quarantine. Where do we even begin?? A Global pandemic struck the world in March and the majority of us coped with spending 5 hours a day on Tiktok. Although the video app was launched in 2016 it began to become popular at the beginning of the pandemic as people needed something to do while stuck at home during lockdown. Sweats and loungewear definitely became a fashion statement during the pandemic and were perfect for those working from home. Many of us people even participated in the trend of DIY Tie dye sweats.
Ok now for the major thing to sweep the world in the middle of the Pandemic.. Two people.. Carole Baskin and Joe Exotic.. Need I say more? If you haven’t already watched Tiger King on netflix then you need to ASAP. The feud between these two kept us happy at home binging at home for a good month and then the Tiger King Tik Toks started to roll in.. and you bet we got on this trend..
Dalgona coffee became a thing thanks to Tiktok. Everyone had to try this trend! Others became professional banana bread makers.. or was this just us? It seemed many did a lot of baking during the pandemic and sharpened those kitchen skills.
Apps such as houseparty were created to help us stay connected to our friends in a group facetime setting and we could play games to keep in touch however rumours quickly started circling that if you had houseparty your account was going to get hacked and your bank account would drain and well that pretty much ended that!
2020 wasn’t the best year at times.. Although we definitely celebrated a few highs here at Jean Jail HQ! We launched not one, but 3 collections! Yep you heard that right, 3!! It started off with our Reloaded Collection! This included a restock of two of our best selling crews.
