Great style, a dream job, and the cutest house ever? Meet Sarah Dubbeldam, a former L.A. model who managed to turn a fantasy magazine she dreamed up with a friend over coffee into a booming business. Started as an online mag to help mentor women through the wild twists and turns of young adulthood, Darling's now two weeks away from printing its ninth issue — and Dubbeldam notes they're already a good chunk of the way through production on the 10th.
So, how did this Oregon-born, L.A.-based blonde babe accomplish what seems close to impossible for most of us? That's exactly what we wanted to find out. Ahead, tour her super-chic home and find out everything about her, from how she made her dream job come true and where she finds amazing second-hand steals to how she's empowering women worldwide. You won’t wanna miss this one, folks.
