26. Give us three styling tips that always work for you:
1. Look in the mirror and see if YOU honestly think you look & feel good about what you are wearing. If you are, go for it.
2. Carry a different bag everyday… helps you clean up as well as keeps you trendy.
3. If you haven’t worn it for six months… give it away.. and make space for something new!
27. What do you do when you “have nothing to wear” (even though your closet’s packed)?
Pour a glass of wine…drink it to the last drop. Pour another glass of wine… I’m usually drunk by two… and will always find something then!! On a serious note… I’d go shopping!
28. Coffee or tea? Coffee and / or Tea (I’m a serious no fuss person!)
