September 26, 2016

Social media is my jam. As a social media specialist, I spend a minimum of 40 hours a week bouncing between Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and whatever new platform pops up claiming to be the next big thing.

So if you’re wondering, no this isn’t my dress. Although I have bought mine, and I am obsessed with it!
