Photography can feel daunting, but it can be fun too! And we all know how crucial it is to blogger/IG life.  When I first started my blog over a year ago, I had never used a DSLR before. My photography know-how was ZERO. Nilch. Nada. Zip. Non-existent. But with practice, patience and good ole’ Google, I’ve made some strides.

     When you purchase a limited edition Rebecca Minkoff x By Rosie Jane beauty bag you’ll not only be getting a gorgeous calf-leather nude and neon coral clutch (filled with your choice of By Rosie Jane signature multi-purpose lip and cheek pot, and best selling perfume oil rollerball), but you’ll be supporting I Am That Girl; a Los Angeles based nonprofit dedicated to female empowerment and confidence building for girls aged 18-22. I spent some time Tuesday morning at the Rebecca Minkoff store chatting with I Am That Girl program director, Rachel McGowan, who told me that the organization’s focus…
