Also today, we have Beauty and Style Expert, Andy Paige.

Andy is the charming and sassy go-to-gal for “thrifty-chic” fashion fixes and budget beauty help. Andy understands that most women live on a budget and yet still want to turn heads and drop jaws. That’s why she carved out a niche focusing on the “average” American woman. She developed her own line of affordable, all-natural-hair cosmetic brushes (ANDY PAIGE COSMETIC BRUSHES™) and launched STYLE IN A BOX™ – a thrifty-chic bundle of accessories that offers an immediate style boost to any outfit. She makes looking spectacular fun and easy.

In June 2013, Andy launched her newest product, the GirlyGoGarter®, a hands-free purse worn neatly and discretely as a sexy garter, that was nearly five years in the making and includes three patents. Andy knows how challenging it is to figure out where to put your girlie must-haves (like lipstick, your mobile phone, I.D., powder brush and even small baby items) when you don’t want to lug a handbag. The garter fits snugly around the thigh and allows a woman to conceal these items and more without showing a bulge through her dress. This is fast becoming the must-have item for 2013. Every woman at one time or another will need a GirlyGoGarter®.

Andy is the author of the internationally best-selling book, Style On A Shoestring and has experience doing over 100 “fabulously frugal” makeovers on over 200 episodes of television, airing in over 14 countries. She earned her title, “Budget Bombshell,” honestly through her extensive work. She was featured on NBC’s Starting Over, TLC’s Ten Years Younger, Style Network’s How Do I Look, and SOAP NET’S Soap Talk. Andy has also appeared on hundreds of local networks doing various style segments.

So grab your reins and hold on for a fun, fun interview.
