I have met Kristy 'The Cheap Blonde' at many events and she is so approachable and lovely despite how cool she looks in her photos. Kristy promotes that looking good doesn't need to be expensive and was once featured in Look magazine for her great sense of style. Becoming a mum has not subdued her passion for fashion and you can see through her social images that she embraces her inner style which is a great inspiration. Here is Kristy's fun lighthearted It's All About You interview.

My two year old called me ‘make-up face’ the other day, that made me laugh.

Any time there’s been a ‘poosplosion’ in public!
Mama super hero power you would choose:
The ability to be in two places at once would be amazing.
