Dani is a 30-something freelance writer and social media consultant who grew up in Singapore and has an unhealthy love for makeup, hair, and fashion. She currently lives in Toronto, Canada with her husband and 4-year-old daughter, and dreams of retiring to a warmer climate one day. Preferably tomorrow. When she decided to put her career in corporate marketing on hold to stay home and raise her daughter, she was grossly unprepared for how difficult it would be, and while she enjoyed most moments of her first, sleep-deprived year as a mother, she started to feel as though she was losing a part of herself. So after a particularly long and colicky night, she put on a little lipstick, got out her best pair of high-heeled shoes, and decided to create a space where her ‘village’ could come together to share the things they’re most passionate about in an effort to make the lives of modern, fabulous women (hers included!) a little easier.

She believes life is short, which means the things we do should be intentional, and not so time consuming that we're missing out on what's important. Because of that, she likes to share quick and easy ideas that will allow women to get things done, then get back to being Mama, plus their little One.
