FASHION &  LIFESTYLE BLOGGER OF THE YEAR


Debbie Stinedurf – Fashion Fairy Dust 

Debbie Stinedurf Fashion Fairy Dust

A few tidbits about me:
I’m the self-proclaimed queen of mixing casual and dressy.
I’ve never met two (or more) prints that I didn’t think I could mix.
I have more graphic tees than any one person should own…the same goes for boyfriend jeans and statement necklaces.
I believe the addition of a “third piece” is what makes an outfit special.
I can’t live without coffee.
Nor can I live without dogs. I have 4 and would have 100 if my husband would agree to it.
I love 80’s music and will sing Def Leppard, The Bangles and Cheap Trick songs at the top of my lungs in the car.
I’m obsessed with anything Apocalypse related~movies, books, t.v. shows. Yes, I have a strange and twisted mind.
I do all of my own photography for the blog.
I’m also obsessed with the weather and track storms like a maniac.
