Jewel wore her wavy strawberry blonde locks down in a look styled by Nicole Blais and sharpened her features with makeup applied by Josée Leduc.
The You Were Meant For Me songstress fired up her Instagram that day to post at selfie video showing off her latest look to her more than 400,000 followers.
‘Can we just talk about the bulls*** I got going on here?’ she vamped. ‘Oh, yeah, serving up some more business looks. How cute is this Alice and Olivia suit?’
She gushed: ‘It’s like business with swagger – ooh, we have our Songlines rings, little pops of color,’ adding: ‘I should do business all the time!’
Over the past few days she has been busily promoting Innerworld, telling People she embarked on the project because ‘Accessibility is critical.’
Jewel, who was born in Utah and raised in Alaska, explained: ‘We cannot let happiness be elitist. It cannot be just for the wealthy who can afford a therapist.’
She also shed some light on how the platform works, saying: ‘When you log into Innerworld, you go into your own private living room, and then you enter a portal where there’s a community center around the fire pit, and there’s people from all over the world hanging out in a safe, supported environment.’
Jewel continued: ‘You can say to the guide: “My pet just died. I’m really sad. What do you recommend?” And then they can pull up a visual tool, like the grief cycle, and you can talk about it with the guide, or you can talk to other community members.’

The Intuition hitmaker said she almost didn’t sign her record deal at age 15 because she wanted to avoid ‘a breakdown.’
The mom-of-one told the publication, ‘In this job, we lose more people to addiction, overdose, suicide, mental breakdowns, and I didn’t want to be a statistic.’
Elaborating on her mindset, she dished: ‘My goal when I moved out [of my house] at 15 was to learn a new emotional language.’
As a precocious teen she added that she ‘knew that as much as I had a genetic inheritance that might predispose me to diabetes or heart disease, I could tell that I had an emotional inheritance and that might predispose me to cycles of addiction and abuse.’
The music artist left home as a teenager and was homeless, living in her car when she was discovered.
‘When I got discovered — it’s funny — I almost didn’t sign my record contract because I was so aware that if you take somebody with my emotional background, and God forbid, I get famous…’ she explained.
As a compromise, the bright young woman said she came to a personal agreement with herself.
‘I made myself a deal that I would sign that contract as long as my number one job remained learning how to be a happy, whole human,’ she told the outlet.
As a result, at the peak of her music career she took a break due to needing ‘time to psychologically adjust to the level of fame.’

And she spent the past seven years solely focused on her role as mom to eleven-year-old son Kace, who she shares with ex-husband Ty Murray.
In the sit-down chat she posed the questions, ‘What’s the point of a career If you want to jump off a building or take your life?
‘What’s the point of fame? What’s the point of likes if you’re not happy and if you don’t like yourself?’
Taking action, the blonde superstar launched a campaign to combat mental health challenges in conjunction with the Inspiring Children Foundation, which she’s been part of for nearly two decades.
In conversation with People, Jewel said, ‘We really wanted to launch this campaign around the holidays to remind people they’re not alone.
‘It’s not enough to just raise awareness. We have to offer solutions to people and that’s my favorite part about the #NotAloneChallenge, is they can see resources that are free, that are available, and that are proven to work.’
