A lifestyle blogger and mom of three, Ivana Hicks is an Austin native with a passion for travel, beauty, and interior design. Always putting others first, her selflessness and passion for celebrating everyday embodies what it means to be a Korman girl. Her love for her family and the story of her journey shines through her Korman collection, from her everyday essentials to her stunning engagement ring.
“A Korman Girl is someone who celebrates life from the littlest moments to the most special ones,” Ivana said. “A girl who can take her jewelry and make it special in her own way to fit her personal style.”
Even with her busy schedule, Ivana always makes a point to embrace every moment. Being a mom, it’s easy to forget to celebrate yourself sometimes. Even if it means quickly throwing on some of her favorite pieces while she hurries out the door, Ivana makes sure to empower herself by wearing pieces that make her feel good, building herself up and allowing her to do the same for others.
Sometimes, the essentials are the easiest to reach for! The Ivana Necklace is a staple that carries her name for a reason, and is an everyday must-have for her.
“It’s gold, dainty, and looks good with everything! I never take it off and get asked about it all the time. It’s the perfect necklace that elevates my day-to-day looks no matter how casual or dressed up I am” she stated.
A staple piece that is buildable and can stand alone is an item every mom needs. Elevate your loungewear or stack on the tennis necklaces for a night out.
Constantly on the go, Ivana describes her style as elevated casual with a touch of boho chic. Sneaking away to work out whenever she can, you can usually spot her already in her workout gear.
“I love to elevate my athleisure pieces with statement jewelry or a designer bag for a more fashion forward look,” Ivana said. “Being from Texas, if I can mix in a good pair of boots with my outfit, I will.”
A lifetime longhorn, Ivana met her husband, Minnesota Vikings, Jordan Hicks during their time at The University of Texas. No matter where his career may take them, they keep their roots in the ATX.
“Austin is home,” Ivana said. “I was born and raised here and still have all of my family here—there’s no place like home. It’s relaxed, diverse, outdoorsy, has a great food scene and is a dog-loving city. We’re huge dog lovers so we fit right in.”
While Austin will always be their off-season home, their home throughout the season is out of their hands. Launching his NFL career with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2015, Jordan was then traded to the Arizona Cardinals and just recently, to the Minnesota Vikings. Supporting her husband unconditionally, Ivana has embraced and quickly loved every place they’ve settled in. A proud believer that they will always end up right where they belong, it’s safe to say that they will love Minnesota as well.
“Selflessness, to me, is about being caring, compassionate, and being a helping hand to others without any expectations,” Ivana said. “It’s truly about putting yourself last and thinking about how to best help someone who might need you. It’s a true act of kindness!”
Without any expectations, Ivana embraces every situation she’s faced with. Putting her family first in each and every day, her selflessness is as priceless as a diamond. To be a Korman girl is to be a role model for others, and Ivana’s selflessness and ability to truly celebrate every day is something to admire.
“I try to be intentional with my time as best as I can. The saying ‘the days are long but the years are short’ couldn’t be more true,” Ivana said. “Celebrating everyday for me is spending time with my family with intentionality. Time is gold and so are those I love most.”
