In the Press
Welcome to my “trophy” room. I wouldn’t describe myself as a bragger, but there’s a time and place when modesty should be shoved in the corner, and this is one of them. After all, I want you to be impressed by my hard work. Here you’ll find the shout-outs and accolades The Beauty Girl has earned, the stories I write for other magazines and websites (my life revolves around deadlines!), my latest TV appearances, the events, parties and partnerships I’ve created, along with pretty much anything else I’ve done that toots my own horn.
