FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) -- A local woman landed a spot on Forbes "30 Under 30 List."

Kirsten Blowers made the "retail and e-commerce" division for her business called Riff Raff, located in downtown Fayetteville.

She started the store in 2011 and has been expanding ever since. Blowers is the owner and creative director in Fayetteville and also in Dallas, Texas. She runs her store in a creative space and said that she attributes a lot of her success to social media. In fact, Blowers found out she was on the list through social media, after Selena Gomez posted on Instagram that she was nominated.

"I literally clicked on Forbes, went to our category, but didn't see it," Blowers said. "I didn't even check my email to find it -- I was just tagged in an Instagram post!"

There are 32 women, all under the age of 26 that work at the women's clothing store.

"We're on the list which is really cool," Blowers said.
