Professional/Personal Overview
  As a highly-experienced lifestyle reporter, I write stories about beauty, fashion,weddings, shopping, relationships, and much more. My client list includes dozens of national magazines, newspapers, and internet sites, from COSMOPOLITAN to GLAMOUR to GOOD HOUSEKEEPING to BRIDES; I've also made a number TV guest appearances as a style expert; and am currently a copywriter for one of the largest haircare companies in the market.

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. And it's hard for me to turn down writing about weddings in any way, shape, or form: To me, that's just a trip down a very beautiful lane!
My blog--www.hillarythebargainhunter.com--is a lively shopping forum that offers a glimpse into my life, while showcasing my not-so-secret passion for finding a real deal.
