Resume/C.V.

I have been blogging for the past four years about fashion, style, and other lifestyle topics. I am currently back in school to study interior design. My past work experience includes a Blogger and Social Media Coordinator for Miinto.com, where I blogged daily about fashion, trends, and styling tips; writing for multiple blogs and online magazines; and various fashion retail experience. I also used to run a personal style and fashion blog where I would discuss my views & ideas concerning fashion. In addition, I am the St. Louis Fashion Examiner for Examiner.com, and I have many new ventures starting up very soon.

I enjoy doing research and coming up with interesting topics to write about. There's always something to say; there's always a story. I love being able to creatively express my opinions while also being informative. Bringing new ideas to an audience is my favorite part of writing.

Main Interests: Fashion, Art, Interiors, Lifestyle, Literature, Films, Health & Beauty
Service Description
