I truly appreciate all the love and support from each of you and cannot thank everyone enough. As I continue to strive to put out great content and keep you all in the know with great brands and products, I come across.
I’ve been receiving a number of questions from loyal readers, and instead of answering them one at a time, I wanted to create a new way on our website to give you more information about myself.

What inspired you to start a blog?
I really enjoy trying new things and experiences, and blogging was an outlet to share my findings with others. I want to be a voice for amazing brands/people/companies who might not have avenues to do so. I started blogging about business and networking topics, and it slowly started to grow from there. It has been a fabulous journey so far, and I cannot wait to see where it will go.
Do you blog full-time or have a job as well?
I’m not the kind of person who just does one thing. I have a full-time job as a Senior National Sales Manager at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino and I also sit on boards and volunteer for other organizations I am interested in.
What are three words that best describe you?
Committed, resilient and personable
How tall are you?
5’11 without heels
Who does your hair?
My hair is only trusted by the fabulous Justin Littlefield from Mockingbird Salon in Philadelphia. I can walk into the salon, and he knows exactly what I need. He is a hair genius!
What is the one (or two) beauty product you cannot live without?
This is a tough question. It’s hard to choose as different products help with various things; however, I would have to say my BECCA Under Eye Brightening Corrector and my Estee Lauder Advanced Night Micro Cleansing Balm. Here is my blog on my daily makeup.
What is your favorite movie?
The Devil Wears Prada
Favorite places to shop?
Since fashion is what this blog is mainly about, it’s my job to look for perfect pieces that not only I love but the audience – I have a love for many stores. Some that are my favorite are Vici, Mango, Ann Taylor, Nordstrom, Michael Kors, Sephora, and Zara.
What is your favorite drink (coffee and alcohol)?
Depending on the day – I love a good Manhattan, Red Wine, Grey Goose, and soda. For coffee I love an iced coffee with a splash of steamed almond milk (summer) in colder weather I’ll drink it hot! Around the holidays, I will splurge for a Peppermint Mocha (2 pumps of both and almond milk).
Where is one place you want to travel to this year?
I absolutely love to travel and explore new places (especially history). My last trip was London/Scotland and I had a blast! Currently scheduled would be a 10-day wine trip to Tuscany.
What is your go-to outfit for work, casual, going out?
My number one go-to would be any kind of dress. Some of my dresses are from Vici, Mango or Ann Taylor. They are fabulous for either day or night and you can easily dress them down or up with the right accessories. I also love high heels for almost all my outfits and my Cole Haan’s for casual wear.
What are your fashion pet peeves?
I have so many pet peeves…people need to try at least and attempt to look presentable. If you look like you just rolled out of bed to go to work, it’s not a good look. I also hate when men wear a tux, and their belly is hanging out (get a longer vest).
What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Reese anything! And I love vegan cupcakes or dairy free ice cream.
What are your favorite items to eat?
Chips and salsa, mash potatoes and gravy, and sushi

I love all flowers, but sunflowers are my favorite

I don’t have a favorite perfume but currently, I’m using Michael Kors Sexy Amber
