Sam

Sam - HeadshotSamantha is my name, although I’m better known as SJ or SJB by all friends and family. Born in New York and raised in New Jersey, I’m the definition of the Northeast and embrace Manhattan filth. Abiding by my parents advice to “experience a new city,” I attend college at the George Washington University in Washington, DC. I’m a classical maverick with an edgy twinge due to my love of Parisian fashion. I’ve found my creative side through writing and fashion. I utilize every day to dress up, no matter what occasion because my closet is my canvas: it’s always better to be overdressed than underdressed. Life, to me, is best lived when adorned with anything and everything pink. You’re most likely to catch me smiling, reading/cutting up the newest edition of Vogue, curling my hair, attending a meeting for the one of four organizations I’m a part of, or talking on the phone. Drop me a message anytime.  I love to talk fashion, relationships, life, undiscovered Starbucks drinks, the stock market, and what’s the newest red lip stain you’ve found that ACTUALLY stays on through a workday consisting of six cups of coffee and a few slices of pizza!
