A pinning addiction only begins to describe this Fashionista and she will agree that she’s “absolutely obsessed.” From fitness to fashion, my homepage is constantly flooded with her pins. Following her only reveals some insight into her creative, fashion-crazed brain. She also has an impeccable fascination with Michael Kors. She loves dressing in springtime, which is totally reflected through her free-sprit personality and her style icon. I share a couple classes with this Fashionista and sometimes it’s hard to look away!
