Beverly Burgess is a social media addict, having lived and breathed in the online space for over 20 years – working at Microsoft, eBay, and HP Inc.
A blogger for over two decades spanning life across Australia, China and now Singapore, Beverly entered an alternate universe at warp speed when she went from career-driven shopaholic and social butterfly … to juggling being a wife and a mother of two kids.
All within three years.
The career is now back, alongside with the privilege of being a full-time mum. And the urge to shop and socialize still remains (albeit with two obliging children in tow).

I want a love that will always have trust.
Not a relationship based purely on lust.
A love where friendship always comes first.
A love that will stay true for better and for worse.
A love that would never lie or cheat.
And when things went wrong it could take the heat.
A love that money cannot buy.
I want a love that would never die.
SUCCESS DEFINED: To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.(Ralph Waldo Emerson)
