Being a lifestyle expert means that Kimberly looks nice All. The. Time. If she has a day full of meetings, luncheons, book signings and/or TV appearances, then she usually wears a colorful dress. If she is spending her day preparing for an upcoming photo shoot for a blog post or TV appearance, then she wears pants with a colorful top. The key word here is color - and it's Kimberly's favorite way to enhance her wardrobe.

Typical work routine:
There is nothing typical about each day. Kimberly has very different responsibilities in her work - photo shoots, tv appearances, book signings, writing for her blog, vendor meetings for her linens company, charity board meetings - and so her routine is to simply stay flexible and productive.
She likes taking notes in her notebook.
Job stress management:
She loves her work and tends to thrive in challenging situations.
Work pet peeve:
The initial negative "we can't do that" position instead of choosing to view potential opportunities in difficult moments.

The fact that Monograms For The Home, Kimberly's latest book, is in it's fourth printing!
Kimberly describes her office as an open and creative space.
Favorite office supply:

Kimberly uses her email as her to-do list. When she needs to get something done - she sends an email to herself as a reminder. She makes rapid decisions and moves as quickly as possible to stay on schedule.

Be authentic and listen to your instincts.
