The Art of Living Stylishly with Blair Farris from PEACHY the Magazine

Y'all know I love a good small world story!  Well... last Spring when I attended the Design Bloggers Conference, I ran into a girl that I had known in college and was in my sorority.  Who would have thought!... And what fun to learn that she had launched a BEAUTIFUL new digital magazine called PEACHY which covers art, architecture, gardens, interiors, entertaining, style, health and inspiration!  It just celebrated it's first birthday last Fall.

So here is the scoop on the magazine.....
In 2013, Blair Farris set out to create and publish a lifestyle magazine honoring her late grandmother’s zest for life and love for all things beautiful. A huge influence on Blair, her grandmother “Peachy” had a big, bold and eclectic style and loved to make a statement with fabulous jewelry and purses, bright colors and creative hats. Peachy’s love for the arts has always inspired Blair, and she instilled in Blair and other family members a passion for living a good and meaningful life.   
Peachy is a digital publication that takes readers inside gorgeous homes, walking them through verdant gardens, enticing the taste buds with delicious food and drinks, inspiring readers with the latest style trends and showcasing beautiful art and architecture, plus so much more.

Now here is the scoop on my very talented friend...

Best advice you have ever received....
I heard this from Elizabeth Nichols, CEO of Taigan. "Be careful of the toes you step on today, because they might be connected to the ass you need to kiss tomorrow."

If you could be anything else in the world, what would it be?
I actually love both of my jobs and the opportunity to be able to use my creative ability.  I think maybe I would like to be a clothing or shoe designer.
