ZAMRIE is on My Habit (Amazon!)

Has this ever happened to you…you have type-1 diabetes and a mutual friend introduces you to another person with type-1 diabetes and you instantly feel like you’ve known that person for years? Like you have an instant bond? When I met my diabetes soul mate 6 years ago it was just like that. Ashley is funny, passionate, driven, beautiful, kind, supportive,

adventurous, and incredibly generous. She also happens to have had type-1 diabetes since she was a baby. We were introduced when we were both living in New York City for the summer doing college internships…me at a fortune-500 financial company…her at Zac Posen (she definitely had the cooler gig). The moment I met her I knew we would be lifelong friends. We just got each other. We knew what it was like living with type-1 diabetes every minute of our life. We could finish each other’s sentences. Something that we really bonded on was going after our individual dreams. Ashley has been one of my biggest cheerleaders in the quest to raise more awareness about diabetes & getting my book published. I have been cheering for her in the front row of her college graduation fashion show at Purdue. I’m BEYOND thrilled and excited for her that AMAZON has recognized her incredible talent as a fashion designer. This week ONLY her stuff is being featured on “My Habit”, the fashion end of You can buy her items there (at a great price!) until Friday morning. Please check out her website as well and support my lovely friend, Ashley Zygmunt for Zamrie. -> Scroll down to Zamrie
