Julie Gaver: If we know one thing, it's that Julie Gaver lives up to the hype.

  For the past few years there’s been a name floating around my social and professional circles. People talk about this person often, and yet, we’d never met. When I’d mention that we had never been introduced, I was usually met with disbelief: “How is that possible? You two HAVE GOT to meet. You will love her!” And, after a while it got old. I mean, really? Can she actually be that amazing? Surely she wouldn’t live up to the hype. But she did, of course. If I know one thing, it’s that Julie Gaver lives up to the hype. This lady is a dynamo of energy…

Girl Crush: Sam Chuawongse

  I have never really been good with makeup. A little mascara, some blush, lip gloss, maybe some powder if it’s a particularly blocked pore kind of month. I’m fortunate to have pretty decent skin and the inability to care long enough to do anything more. But, despite my lack of ability, I’ve always found it intriguing and fascinating to watch how expertly some women can transform themselves by simply knowing what to use and how to use it. Sam is one of those women. She makes magic on her wildly popular YouTube beauty channel and her thousands and thousands…

Girl Crush: Stacey Ferguson

  I discovered Stacey Ferguson back in 2010 because she’s a fellow foodie who also happens to be a blogger. And, you know, I’m a foodie blogger, too. But anyone who knows Stacey will tell you, that’s only scratching the surface. She’s inspired so many other women through mentoring, leadership, and things like Blogalicious—which, by the way, is headed BACK to Maryland, this week! I had the pleasure of attending when it was in Washington, D.C., a couple years ago, and it was a wonderful experience…so full of life, diversity, and fun! Read on to find out why we asked…
