Long name... what's it about?
Since our very humble beginnings back in 2007, Drop Dead Gorgeous Daily has been the Australian women's real girl guide to making life more gorgeous & fun - the home of doable beauty, bake-able cakes, and all the trend & style advice you'll ever need. We spend all our waking (and sometimes even sleeping) hours scouring the interwebs for the best 'where did you buy that?' style finds, outfit inspiration, the most unmissable online sales and much, much more. Tough gig huh?!
Meet TEAM DDG...
Answers to: Kate McKibbin / Boss Lady / Can you reach that for me...A bit about me: Before launching DDGDaily.com I worked for a whole bunch of women's glossies both here and in the UK including Shop Til You Drop, New Woman (RIP), Grazia.com.au (also RIP), Cosmopolitan UK, and I even had a column in FHM (... I might be jinxed!). And before all that I was listing shopping as my number one hobby from about the age of five. I am probably one of Australia's biggest shopaholics, and was even crowned as one of Anthill's 30 under 30 entrepreneurs for my efforts in 2010.Favourite stores: All of them??Guilty pleasure:Anything with cheese on it... and wine!

Answers to: Kristina Ioannou / Beauty Editor / Social Media Manager / Nail Polish Addict / Can I borrow a mascara?A bit about me: After whizzing through a Journalism degree, ditching current affairs for fashion writing and then realising I much preferred ransacking my way through the beauty cupboard over the shoe shelf, the rest was history. These days you can find me waxing poetic about everything beauty-related (and I mean everything!), indulging my Pinterest and social media obsession and adding to my seemingly endless bounty of makeup, hair products, and skin care (all in the name of work, of course!).Favourite stores: Mecca Cosmetica, I Am Natural Store, Kester Black, Nourished Life and Is Ryan Gosling Cuter Than A Puppy- okay, the last one's not a store, but it's definitely worth a peek! Guilty pleasure: 2pac, smashed avocado on toast and trashy TV.

Answers to: Larissa Thorne / Lifestyle Editor / Editorial assistant / Have you finished your book yet?A bit about me: I am a hoarder of shoes, jewellery and Disney DVDs and am physically incapable of restricting my chocolate intake (If I have a block of chocolate then I'll have to eat the whole thing. In one sitting. RIGHT NOW!). I'm sort of a jack of all trades here at DDGD and on any given day you'll find me lusting after new homewares trends, testing out beauty products, photoshopping images or obsessively maintaining spreadsheets. Favourite stores: That's like asking to pick a favourite child! I'd probably have to say Solestruck for shoes, asos for clothes and Mecca Cosmetica for beauty. But so, so many more. Guilty pleasure: Anything Game of Thrones! (You know nothing Jon Snow!)

Answers to: Maddie Simic / Fashion Assistant / Where did you get those... A bit about me: As the fashion side of the site it is my sworn duty to never wear trackie pants to work ... or at least to wear them in a totally high fashion way. I might be from Geelong but I'm a true Melbourne girl at heart, which is why the eagle eyed among you might notice that black dominates my wardrobe. I also enjoy a good pair of slacks. Favourite stores: I'm with Kate - Can't I just say all of them? Guilty pleasure: Ramen and vintage tees
