They are the brilliant minds behind ASK THE MONSTERS.
Inspired to make a blog focused solely on women and the beauty in the world that they see every single day, Beatrice Lessi and Geri Preses came together to start ASK THE MONSTERS, a lifestyle blog created in Switzerland. With varying posts about fitness, travel, beauty, and fashion, they have gained a loyal following since the blogs creation.
