                                            I had the pleasure to giggle and laugh with Cynthia at the Design Bloggers Conference in Atlanta.  She has vivacious personality filled with glorious ideas for stylish living.  Her elegant charm mixes smoothly with her rock n roll ‘tude’.   She whispers lovingly and energetically about her own life and family – but you can tell this lady is all business – all the time.  I found Cynthia Rowley to be colorful, smart, dazzling and strategic just like her brand.  I’ve got a crush on Cynthia and love her #instapics.
