Our Best of Austin Bloggers and Influencers series continues this week with the inspiring woman behind Peace Love Glam
Jo (Johanna) Placencio is a Texas girl through-and-through. She was born in West Colombia, Texas and then first moved to Houston before deciding to call Austin home. The goal of her lifestyle blog Peace Love Glam is to inspire, motivate and help as many women as possible.
“Helping others to see their own beauty and become the best version of themselves is so very gratifying to me. It provides me a lot of happiness to know that I’m helping others especially when they contact me and let me know how much my IG and blog posts inspire and help them,” she told ATXgossip.

How do you stay connected while social distancing? In times like this, we must recreate or re-imagine ways to connect. It is essential we support one another during these times. Here are a few Tips to stay connected while we are apart: ▪️ Check in with your friends, family, and neighbours regularly. Wherever you can, assist people in your life who may be more vulnerable. ▪️ Exercise with your family members that are in your home. It’s the perfect time to connect. ▪️Use technology to stay in touch with friends, family and co-workers #facetime , @houseparty and @zoom_video_communications Embrace the tools that can help us all stay connected. ▪️Participate in Virtual classes. ▪️Do Text message Check-in’s. ▪️Go old school, Send fun items a card, letters, care packages—in the mail. I don’t care how old you are, it’s always fun and exciting to get something in the mail. ▪️Make fun future plans with family and friends. Showing kindness to others not only helps them but can also increase your sense of purpose. Reaching out in LOVE is always a good idea. ? We WILL get through this challenging time together, and my hope when this is behind us and humanity begins to heal, none of us will ever take for granted the pure healing power of a hug and a tender touch from a loved one. I can’t wait to hug everyone. ?#frommyhearttoyours Soul Sister @ambersoberon #reikimaster #soullove ? @capturedbycarlieta
Jo’s most recent venture with her friend Angie Hejl is #Glam_Soiree. Every other month they dress up and sit down to converse and share their intentions. They empower and lift each other up while focusing on building a sisterhood.
“I believe with all my soul that we rise by lifting others.”
