Five Questions for My Favorite Bloggers
Who are you?
That's a very good question as it's taken me thirty three years to figure out. I'm a writer but I love business. I'm a foodie but I shy away from fancy restaurants. I love fashion but I always consult my best friend before I buy anything. I'm a person who used to be consumed with money, but now is more focused on giving back. I'm the author of The Sky Isn't Visible From Here, a memoir about the contentious, heartbreaking relationship I had with my mother and how that hurt shaped my adulthood. I'm a former marketing and project manager executive who plans to launch a non-profit, Fashion For All, a semi-annual, nationwide event that provides women in low-income areas with a day of dignified shopping and access to community resources. I'm someone who refuses to settle for anything less than extraordinary.

Where are you?
In front of my computer, pounding away.
What is the concept behind your blog?
My blog is a slice of my life - what I covet, eat, buy, love, read, and write. It's a 24-hour virtual holiday.
