Open Runway Contest!

Open Runway Contest!

It’s no secret that, as women and serial entrepreneurs, Amy and I are huge supporters of other female startup founders and business owners.

Megan Nielsen talks Swap DC!

Hey there swappers! My name is Megan Nielsen, and I blog over at Design Diary. Last week I was lucky enough to attend the DC Sip & Swap hosted by the Swapaholics, and I had such a blast! I’ve never been to a swap before, so I was a little nervous about what it would be like and whether I would find anything I liked – but within a few minutes I’d already scored some super...
