Interests I love fashion, art, photography and all things beautiful. I love magazines, to the point that I will buy them on the newsstand even if I have a subscription. I have a closet full of beautiful clothes and shoes and yet I wear only about 20% of what I own. I love to travel, beach, mountains, cities...I'll take them all. I'm absolutely addicted to celebrity gossip and reality TV. I love mint tea mistos. I have a much envied closet stuffed to the rim with every kind of beauty product imaginable. I have at least 5 tubes of Bigelow Ultra Mentha Lip Shine within my reach at all times. When I was a teenager I wanted to be a fashion illustrator or a stylist but my Dad thought I'd end up homeless so I went the business route of fashion instead. I don't illustrate anymore but I think about it all the time and actually cry when I see an inspiring piece of art. I worked in the beauty industry for 15 years as a cosmetic product developer so I have a fairly extensive knowledge of and obsession with all things beauty. I love my job yet I am contemplating a career change. I absolutely LOVE the summer and being on the beach or on the water. There's nothing better than that. I am a hockey fanatic. Have been a fan since I was a little girl. That helps the winters pass until my favorite time of year comes. I heart Love Quotes Scarves. I always and I mean ALWAYS have a piece of Dentyne Fire in my mouth.
