Featured On The Everygirl!

September 18, 2015

So a few weeks back I got this comment on a random Instagram photo of mine from a girl in Baltimore. She mentioned something about wanting my email for a feature. To be honest, I thought she wanted to be featured on Femme & Fortune because upon skimming her profile, I noticed she was an interior designer (aka a fellow #girlboss).

A few hours later, I was sitting across from Sara at a diner waiting for some late night munchies to come out from the kitchen. We were of course on our phones checking all those pesky notifications (aka Facebook), when I decided to check out that comment again. I took another look at this girl’s profile only to clearly read “Career Editor @TheEverygirl_” in her bio.

I dropped my phone on the table, and squealed to Sara. “I think I’m getting a career profile on The Everygirl Sara…”

We celebrated with onion fries that night.

Hey, I’m Melissa!
