Hi! I’m Alyssa, and welcome to my little internet corner, The Glossy Life. I’m a Connecticut transplant currently in a love affair with NYC, where I’m a magazine editor by day, and blogger by night.


The Glossy Life grew from my love of fashion, beauty and entertaining and has turned into an all-around documentation of my strides (and stumbles) through life as a twenty-something. When I’m not cooking, blogging or working, you’ll find me at home, reading and eating cupcakes in bed. Like a lady.


If you have a burning question, or are just curious, head on over to my FAQ page for the answer (or to submit your own)!

    so I got the sweet comment that you left on my blog, but I couldn’t respond because your e-mail address isn’t linked to your Blogger profile. you should probably fix that so we can become blogger buddies :)

      I didn’t even realize–thanks so much for reaching out, Jackie! xo

    I LOVE this! The film strip idea is so cute. I might need to take a little inspiration from that for my photography website… ;)
