EM: What do you love about EMMA?
AV: I love the way EMMA Magazine is able to pull such an assortment of strengths, styles, and talent from so many women. Their articles do more than inspire you to create – they celebrate life with you and teach you the different ways to make those celebrations a little more fabulous. 🙂
