She tends to blog about her own experiences.  And did I mention she is the new co-owner and product designer for Root Cellar Designs.  Her blog  ‘Nest by Tamara’  has an impressive following.  She strategically immerses herself in the design world and then writes a philosophical perspective.  I will have to try that  . . .
