Professional/Personal Overview
  As a highly-experienced lifestyle reporter and copywriter, I cover beauty, fashion,weddings, shopping, relationships, and much more. My client list includes hundreds of national magazines, newspapers, and ecommerce sites, i.e. COSMOPOLITAN, GLAMOUR, GOOD HOUSEKEEPING, and BRIDES; I've also made a number of TV guest appearances as a beauty/style expert; and am currently a freelance copywriter for one of the largest haircare companies in the world.

I love to focus on topics that improve readers' everyday lives: From reviewing the hottest new beauty finds on the market...to showing readers how they can stand their ground with a bullying boss, my subjects range from lighthearted to substantial. It's hard for me to turn down writing about beauty and weddings in any way, shape, or form.
My former blog--www.hillarythebargainhunter.com--is a lively shopping forum that offers a glimpse into my life, while showcasing my passion for finding a real deal.
