Movers & Shakers

Movers & Shakers: Elizabeth Swanson

November 2015

"My mother is a huge inspiration not only to me, but also to everyone she meets. She exudes an enthusiasm for life that you can't help but notice- it shines through in all she does. When it comes to style, she is the Queen of flair and hasn't met an accessory she didn't love. She's fearless and chic but most importantly full of love. She's always taught me to keep things in perspective and to live in gratitude. Mom is a daily influence and inspiration. I feel so blessed to call her mine and share her with you. Life is Too Short to Be Chic is a reminder to stop and smell the roses." xoxo VSB
This is the perfect book when you need a break from taking life too seriously: Grab a glass of vino (we recommend ‘HELP IS HERE’, Modern House Wines) and kick back to enjoy fun page-turner offering sincere, poetic words of wisdom as well as quirky, heart-felt tips on how to live life to the fullest. Here are some of our personal favorites that Swanson offers her readers: “Eat a regular diet of popcorn, peanuts and cotton candy. Recapture your youth. There’s life after monogram stationary. Feel Yourself.” Throughout the book, Swanson’s fun-loving conviction about all things wonderful, is contagious and only one of the many reasons we believe this little red book to be the perfect gift this season!
