Welcome to Simply Jamilah!

I’m happy you are here!


2019 Summer Mood Board
Where I am in the world, that summer feeling is vastly approaching. Considering I’m already out of school, I thought it was about time to create my mood board for this summer.

Holmesy, I Love You
After spending a month dwelling on the amazingness that is this book, I finally did a book review of Turtles All the Way Down by John Green.

May Faves
I love experiencing and trying new things, and I always get so excited about sharing my opinion on a product, song, etc. when it’s requested. Therefore, I have made the executive decision to start doing monthly favorites on Simply Jamilah. Here’s the first one ever: May.

5 Glasses, 5 Outfits
After over a year of having glasses without a bottom frame (bad decision, I know), I am more than ready to get new eyeglasses. I decided to try out Warby Parker; I tried on five different pairs of glasses, and I created an outfit to go with each pair.

In April of 2019, Reeve was featured on Simply Jamilah’s “Hidden Gem” page. This is her full interview.

The Best of the Met: 2019
On May 6, 2019, we were all blessed with the annual Met Gala. This year’s theme was “Camp: Notes on Fashion”. These are my favorite looks from the night.

I Survived My Second Year of College
My second year of college was beyond crazy for various reasons. I decided to do a recap of some of the “highlights” using song.

My Very Public Diary: April 2019
I didn’t end the semester on the worst possible note, which I feel really good about.


  • I also changed the layout of the pages and menu, added more pages, and changed the intro video (again)
  • I changed the Hidden Gem page to shout out the past two hidden gems I showcased.
  • I added a new “monthly element,” which are my monthly favorites– different things I fall in love with each month and want to share and recommend.


From a great witch hazel to better your skin, New Girl, and a video by Kianna Naomi to a new book, a great summer beverage, and Ed Sheeran’s new song with a Justin Bieber feature, this May’s favorites are pretty spectacular.
