Q: It’s the season for gift giving. What are some creative, wallet-friendly ways people can shop for loved ones this year?
A: I suggest shopping the home section of online discount websites like Beyond the Rack, you would be surprised with what you may find.I always suggest making something or baking something! I love giving and getting pretzel rods dipped in chocolate and holiday sprinkles. So easy to do and a great gift!
Q: You’ve worked on the sets of American Idol, The Golden Globes, and music videos for some of the biggest stars. Since you’re used to working under time constraints, can you give us some tips for getting ready in the morning when you’re in a rush?
A: It may sound like a stretch for some people but I always say either lay-out your clothes or have an idea of what you’re going to wear the night before. That way you are prepared for an unexpected rush in the morning.I also love dry shampoo or basic baby powder to refresh your hair if you don’t have time to wash it in the morning! This saves me every week! Not to mention, it saves a ton of time.
Q: In your expert opinion, what should be on every fashionista’s Christmas wish list?
A: Booties are the season’s “it” boot! Any color, style, or heel height! You just need a pair, or 5
Q: What would you say is a great gift to give the man in your life?
A: Some of the best gifts I’ve given my guy are the ones having to do with any of his hobbies!
Or to be more specific, I feel like guys never have a good jacket that’s casual but still nice. In my experience they usually only have sweatshirts!
Q: Let’s talk home décor. What are some easy ways people can make their home space more stylish?
A: To be honest, I think adding bold color, or textured pillows to your couch, chairs, or bed livens up a room without feeling totally committed! They are easy to switch out!
