Corri has also evolved as a Style Expert with her widely popular lifestyle site, CorriMcFadden.com, which features a Personal Stylist (fans simply email her what items they are looking for, and she directly responds with options to fit their search), DIY’s, recipes, and fashion “Must Haves.” Most recently, Corri was inspired by the birth of her daughter, Zelda, to launch a second site, Glitter and Bubbles. The modern-day Mom's guide targets those looking for inspiration through fashion, décor, and food.
