Hi, I’m Alexa… but my friends call me Lex.
I’m a Brooklynite who lost her heart to the electric City That Never Sleeps what seems like forever ago. A little girl with big, starry eyes and even bigger dreams, I always gazed up at the twinkling lights wrapping the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree like a present. My gaze fell to street level, where trendy women were clad in faux fur frocks, bold lip colors, and classy heels that clinked when they hit the pavement. I told myself that would be me someday.
Even though BK is home now (and my lipstick collection is overflowing with bold reds and pinks), I will always love on my suburban roots, and live for summertime when my booty has a consistent parking spot in the sand and sun.
I’m that girl who can be seen rocking a sundress and sandals — quite ambitiously — on the first “nice” day of spring, and can be found at a rooftop bar on the reg with an Aperol Spritz in hand. (Honestly, anyone who says Aperol Spritzes are only meant for summertime sips, though — we have a massive bone to pick.)
I could solely eat sushi and Pizza Beach’s vodka sauce pie for the rest of my life and die a happy chick. (Throw some red velvet cupcakes into the mix, too, and I’d be even happier.) I’m a true sucker for a cheesy romance novel, and enjoy nights bingeing Netflix with a (big) glass of wine even more than going out nowadays.
I’m a Lifestyle & Travel Editor who has made it her life’s mission to travel to as many places in the world as humanly possible. (Very millennial-esque of me, I know.)
I’ve had the incredible pleasure of being invited to travel to Monterey and Carmel by the Sea, California; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; Reno and Lake Tahoe, Nevada; Alberta, Canada; Kauai, Hawaii; Oahu, Hawaii; and Breckenridge, Colorado for work over the past year, and have explored many beautiful places on my own time. I also studied abroad in Florence, Italy in college — while writing for Santa Cristina Winery’s blog — and took trips throughout Europe while I was there.
