Kate Riley is the blogger behind Centsational Girl. This incurable DIYer resides in California’s Wine Country and spends her days writing about clever DIY projects, home improvement, and smart, budget friendly interior design. Kate’s been nominated several years in a row for The Homies but this year she’s proud to be a part of the honorary panel of judges weighing in on which blog deserves the accolades. When she’s not wielding a paintbrush, most likely she’s holding a glass of Petite Syrah in her hand. Catch up with Kate at her blog Centsational Girl.
