Ever since I helped convince reporter Amanda Tatom to let us transform her into a mermaid for a Sirenalia feature story, I've been following her journey in life by watching her features on Studio 512, gawking over her fashion posts (GAh!! I need her wardrobe!!!) and even played "tea party" with her and her sweet daughters for a magical underwater shoot this summer (watch the video here!). She's as real as real gets and radiates life and good energy. You'll LOVE her new blog about "ad-libbing" life... give it a read!
