Dime on a Dime: Vee Gilbert
As the single parent of two daughters, thirty-five-year-old Vee Gilbert told The Atlanta Post, “spending lots of money on myself is not always an option.”  So, just over a year ago the Bay Area makeup artist started sharing tips on managing her passion for fashion and beauty on her blog, which now welcomes 10,000 monthly visitors. Vee has posted helpful tips on transforming thrift-store finds into work appropriate outfits, and even a guide to DIY French manicures. (Cheat sheet: wrapping fingertips in scotch tape creates a straight border for the polish.) Dime on a Dime also features product reviews, contests and giveaways from cosmetics favorites like MAC. “Every woman should feel like a million bucks,” says Gilbert, “even if her means are far less than that.”
