Actress and Frugal Style Expert, Brandhyze Stanley, has been featured on numerous media outlets such as The View, The Early Show, The Today Show, and Instyle Magazine to name a few.  Author of the blog, Frugal-nomics: The Art of Resourceful Living; even the folks over at MTVStyle say that, “We’re totally jealous of her great thrifty finds.”

With Business Degree in hand from Loyola University Chicago, Brandhyze landed an internship with Wilhelmina Models in New York City.  A few months into her internship, Brandhyze was blessed to be signed to the agency for print modeling.  Landing national campaigns for Verizon, Graco Baby, Dark n’ Lovely and spreads in Oprah’s “O,” print modeling then segued Brandhyze into a career as a professional working actress.  Some of her credits include the “Perfect Stranger”, “Inside Man,” “The Good Wife,” “Person of Interest,” and frequent appearances on every New York City soap from “All My Children” to “As The World Turns”.  All of this prepared Brandhyze for a career in on-camera hosting where she has had the honor of interviewing everyone from Tina Fey and Kim Kardashian to Anna Wintour (Vogue) and LeBron James – everywhere from hot movie premieres to the Tony Awards.

A massive unexpected layoff forced Brandhyze to hone in on her true passion — teaching others how to look and live fabulous on a dime. Coined as a true “haggler” by her high school Spanish teacher ever since a trip to Mexico, Brandhyze was always the one to share the latest ways to make a dollar stretch.  Her passion for helping others reach their fullest potential to save on all levels, is the driving force behind her many successful brands.  Brandhyze is the resident DIY gal for Mood Fabrics, an on-camera hosting instructor at TVI Studios NY, and is a regular contributor for financial sites, Super Money and Betterment (and has contributed to the Huffington Post, YahooFinance, Goodhousekeeping,  Manilla and Newsday Westchester).
