Design The Life You Want To Live has raving fans, a top-notch feature… the difference that makes the difference. I love my peeps. They create the best conversations and talk real on the blog. It is a cool place to hang out.

Every blog post is written from my heart. Every. Single. One. I will never promote or endorse a product or service that I don’t one million percent love love love.

My blogging audience have come to expect my authentic nature and real life honesty. They are a smashing lot of educated peeps and I respect the trust that they have given me. I will never display an ad, endorse a company or attach a link that is not a good fit with me or my readers. It would be a complete violation of what I believe in. I honour their  trust in me, and I have no intention of ever comprising that trust.

Ever. Taylor Swift ever, never.
