How She Revels: Jodi Harris

Stop defining your self-worth based on what other people think of you.

I wear Aprons all the time. Nope, not for when I cook. I mean on the daily, like a fashion must-have.

Age: 51 

Location: Los Angeles

What do you do for work?

I own a diaper rash ointment company called PINXAV (pronounced Pink-Salve). I know, no one ever can pronounce it. Maybe that’s why it has remained Ohio’s best kept secret. My grandfather invented Pinxav in 1927 and my grandmother ran the business till she was 98 yrs old. She was a bad ass Reveler, before her time!  Now my sister and I are following in her footsteps and trying to spread the word, (oops, no pun intended) about our family’s rash ointment.  And, it’s NOT just for diaper rash.  Chafing, eczema, bed sores, burns, dry cracked skin, even acne!! I seriously use it on my face for pimples. It’s the best “rash” decision you’ll ever make!
 

Tell us something surprising about yourself?

I wear Aprons all the time. Nope, not for when I cook. I mean on the daily, like a fashion must-have. Ladies, I promise it’s the missing piece in everyone’s closet. Go casual with Jeans, a t-shirt and throw on an apron. Or you can dress it up, try black paints, a silk blouse and an upscale apron. I have full body aprons, shorter ones that just cover the waist down. Vintage 1940’s aprons that were my grandmothers and I even have one apron I wore to a black-tie event. Join me in this fashion must-have, you’ll love it.

What’s the last great book you’ve read?

The last great book I listened to (listening is the new reading, right?) was, I Miss You When I Blink by Mary Laura Philpott.

What advice would you give your 30 year old self?

Dear 30-year-old Jodi, stop defining your self-worth based on what other people think of you. Oh, and take that calcium; Osteoporosis is no joke!

If you could time travel, where would you go and why?

I would go back to any time before 4/14/16, so I could see Prince in concert. Super bummed I never got to see him perform on stage.

Best recent discovery?

Recently, I am OBSESSED with the Wake Me Up smoothie from Juice Crafters. Almond milk, cold brewed coffee, banana, cacao powder, almonds, almond butter, dates, vanilla, cinnamon & chaga. It’s so good!!!
