Kimberly Lawson

Kimberly is a sweet girl from Georgia, or at least she’d like to think she is, and currently serves as CL’s operations editor, often without shoes on. She earned her Bachelors in English with a minor in journalism from Augusta State University in 2006 and moved to North Carolina shortly after because she thought the weather would be cooler (it’s not). Kimberly can generally be found writing for KLEPTO, CL’s shopping blog, but she randomly contributes to other blogs as she sees necessary. You can also find her out occasionally stalking celebrities with a camera.

Samantha Webster

Samantha Webster was born and raised in a small, Southern North Carolina town that not even the greatest writer could dream up. She spent the majority of her teenage years driving all over the Carolinas to see bands perform, subsequently earning her the nickname of “Band Aide” and gaining her the friendships of a gaggle of band boys. When it came time for her to pursue a college degree, her love of live music landed her in Charlotte at UNCC, where she struggled to decide between focusing on her writing or art. She finally made her mind up and is now dangerously close to obtaining her BFA in Illustration with a double minor in English and Art History.
