This has been an exciting month of new features and opportunities for me! My twitter party with Birchbox and Benefit trended on twitter! As did my #PrettyGlamazonOscars Party. In Touch Weekly asked me to do a twitter takeover and cover the Oscars red carpet. I know we’re only two weeks into March but I’m too excited not to share that exciting news and the features below!
