Kristy Morgan-A personal friend and new addition to the WWITC team (Confessions of a Beauty Junkie by Kristy), she’s here to show her love for all things beauty! This blonde hair, blue eyed self-confessed beauty junkie knows all too well about a good product! Dealing with skin and food allergies most of her life, she’s always on the hunt for great products and edibles that improve one’s life and overall wellness! Growing up on a horse farm in Maryland, she spent her youth getting her hands dirty (literally) but that doesn’t mean she isn’t well manicured or keeping her skin from looking flawless. Her obsession over “grooming” has got her in trouble a few times or two but needless to say her horse always had the most striking mane and her shower always full with top notch shampoos, conditioners and masks. Gaining the likes of her mother-the original product junkie, she’s always on the hunt to find the next best skin cream, hair oil (yeah for Shu Uemura) or that discontinued product you can’t find anywhere (where is that purple Estee Lauder tube lipgloss?) Maintaining a busy work life, with over 16 years of experience in marketing, branding, PR, SEM/SEO, Tv and Photoshoot Planning Production and serving as the Senior Director of Marketing, she relishes in some down time! When she’s not washing her hair you can find her enjoying the beautiful things in life: the beach, admiring her animals including horses, photography, sunrises, sunsets, sipping wine, fashion, art and design, dinner with friends, cooking and dining on gluten free fare, listening to all types of music (Spotify fuels this!), Ravens football, Mavericks and baseball games, field hockey and lacrosse.
