Get Personal With Leeann of 'Join the Gossip'

I am the number one fan of Join the Gossip. I say this with pride because I have witnessed it's growth from the very beginning. Leeann Morrissey, the brain behind this popular blog, is not only my friend; she and I worked closely together on numerous projects at Plastic Surgery Studios. It was there that I actually hired her on as a writer, appointed her as managing editor of Beauty Chat, discovered that we shared a love for Gwen, and learned that we were both journalism majors from California State University, Fullerton. When she decided to finally leave and transplant to Los Angeles, I was bummed, to say the least. But I always knew that Leeann had fabulous opportunities awaiting her.

And one of her biggest accomplishments thus far, which I can attest to, is the creation of Join the Gossip. She is completely candid with her readers, which I think is genius. She covers anything and everything under the sun, from fashion and celebrity to weight loss and family vacations. Leeann reaches out to her readers with a casual style that is kind, honest, and intuitive.

There are tons of blogs out in the "blogosphere," but there are few that make you feel like you are sitting right across from the writer and chatting over coffee. That's how this smiley blonde operates. She makes you feel comfortable through relatable topics.

So if you haven't yet visited Join the Gossip, and well...joined in on the gossip, check out what Leeann has to chat about. Her recent post discusses her obsession with cute hair accessories. And yes, she has pics to show off her favorite look!

Leeann, I heart you. Keep rockin' our world. (And see you at your Bunco party!)

I don't think I can really ever repay you for all that you have done for me. Thank you for being a mentor. Thank you for encouraging me to go. And thank you for being a friend (yes, the Golden Girls theme song is playing haha!).
