By Heather Anderson

Introduce yourself! Who are you?
I’m Heather Anderson, a proud Mom and a Dallas Based Fashion and Lifestyle Blogger 

What is one thing no one really knows about you?
The one thing not many people know about me is that I was an athlete growing up. I played soccer, volleyball, basketball and I still play tennis and love it!

What’s the best advice you’ve ever received?
The best advice I ever received was this – Don’t quit even after you fail! The best lesson anyone can learn is failing is NOT failure, but quitting is. This is one of my favorite quotes: “Fall down seven times, stand up 8.”

What would you say to 16 year old you?
I would tell my 16 year old self not to put all of your eggs in one basket and don’t put up with any disrespect from boys!

What’s your dream job?
I’m doing my dream job, I love fashion and I love helping others, my blog allows me to focus on both!

Have you ever had anyone doubt you?
I got married at a very young age, 20 years old to be exact. My parents told me they thought I wouldn’t finish college, they were wrong. I not only finished, but I got my business degree in only 3.5 years instead of the usual 4.  

What message do you think every woman should hear?
I think every woman should hear: You are amazing and wonderful and don’t let anyone treat you any less!

What do you love most about yourself?
What I love most about myself is my self discipline and hard work ethic.

Do you have a favorite photo of yourself?
I have a favorite photo of me and my Dad, who I lost to lung cancer almost 7 years ago.  It’s on my wedding day and we both look so happy and are living in the moment!

What motivates you most?
What motivates me the most is competition, I’m a very competitive person and I always strive to the best at whatever I’m doing!

What do you consider to be your greatest achievement?
My greatest achievement is probably raising my children, they have all turned out to be amazing, loving and kind adults!

What is something on your bucket list?
To go to Paris, Italy and Greece!

What are your biggest passions?
My biggest passions are fashion, health and fitness, and my yoga practice 

Where/When did your passion for fashion start?
My passion for fashion started when I was a little girl. I still remember getting my first pair of heels when I was 5 years old, I wanted to wear them EVERYWHERE and I felt like a million dollars when I had them on! To this day I wear heels a ton and feel more confident and like myself when I’m wearing them.
