About Me

A few years ago I started writing comprehensive, honest, yet easily digestible reviews about the products that I purchased online. I went to university for journalism and marketing, and those two things together make for reviews that are well thought out, but more importantly make people feel confident in buying the product.

If you are looking for solid, honest reviews that convert people into purchasing, I'm your girl.

Of course, I have Amazon Prime. I also have a rather large PR & media network with whom I can send my reviews to if requested.

By day I own/run a web design & full service marketing firm in downtown Oxford. At night, I hang out with my three kids, two dogs, and one husband. I also have a mild video game addiction. x
