Silly, compassionate and sensitive!
What inspired you to become an influencer and what is now your favorite part of being one now?
I started my blog after a huge break up. I would write journal style blog posts as I listened to Taylor Swift crying tears into my pinot grigio. My platform grew from there and I also grew personally. My favorite part now is being able to use that pain to help other women and inspire them. I want to show that regardless of their situation or where they come from they can accomplish all of their dreams. If I did it, they definitely can too!

It Cosmetics Confidence in a cream Gel Lotion and face cream!
