4. What has been your must-have this season? A Sirens Swimwear one piece! So amazingly fitted and beautiful quality..

8. If you could be an animal, what would you be? A cat.. yep I am a crazy cat lady..

9. If you could have a super power, what would it be? Maybe 2 of me could help get through everything I need to do in a day!
