She has a passion for designer handbags and swears that everyone should reflect their own personality in fashion,  in which comfort is key!

I had an exhilarating styling adventure with Mona, we styled 4 hot looks found in the store for all you fashionistas to devour! Check out these great looks for spring/summer on our amazing model Tammy and enjoy my interview with Mona!

I made $20 for completing a 20 minute survey!

Guess what? This is exactly what big companies are paying for. They need to know what their customer needs and wants. So these companies pay $1,000,000's of dollars each month to the average person. In return, the average person, myself included, fills out surveys and gives them their opinion.
