Denim & Lipstick is a women’s lifestyle blog inspiring women to embrace their personal journeys and live their best lives, in style.

We can be as tough as raw denim and as bright as red lipstick.

Hey ya’ll, I’m Kendra D. Quinn (obvi, you can just call me Kendra). I’m a published writer and social media marketing strategist with an MA in Communications Management from Webster University. I’m passionate about the journey of curating the life I’ve always wanted. For me, this includes self-love/wellness practices and creative self-expression through words and personal style. It does not include being boxed in or defined.


I thought it was cool to pack up my tiny coupe and leave my hometown, St. Louis, Missouri to start a new life on the West Coast. I came to Los Angeles with a seasonal retail gig and absolutely no place to live. I even blogged about my journey on Tumblr. I hope my story can inspire other women to live in their purpose, follow their dreams, and live their best lives. That is why I created this magical space on the web.

Denim & Lipstick is a safe haven for creative women who choose to unsubscribe from labels and cultural expectations that attempt to define what it means to be a woman, or, to simply be themselves.

This blog is a community for fellow writers, creators, influencers, educators, entertainers, artists, and everything in between. We are uninhibited. We are all on a journey, and we all have unique perspectives and stories to share. I hope that my story can help to inspire women to love themselves fearlessly, walk in confidence, and find purpose.
