Welcome to my blog! I started blogging on December 12, 2008, as my personal journal to share with you all my crazy life and the Behind the Seams™ of building my brand Boy Meets Girl® (first using my blackberry, then my droid, now my iPhone4s/5 and as of February 2014 dabbling with my new gorgeous Canon EOS Rebel T3i).
Over the past 7 years it has evolved into more than just my journal entries. It now incorporates all facets of my life! From what I wore at events, Q and A’s with my friends (from fashionistas to musicians), Entrepreneurship 101, My Tips (from Nails to DIY to fittings and more), my Midnight Inspirations (the things that inspire me all the time aka, Kate Moss & Johnny Depp, products I adore and most recently my son Dylan Reid aka Dj Dylan Reid who was born on October 4th, 2014), My Features on Olivia Palermo, and the list goes on and on.
I am glad you stopped by because now you can join me Behind the Seams™.
And remember to always BELIEVE. Think. Say. Do.
