I recently had the honor of being featured on one of my favorite Fashion & Lifestyle Blogs The Average Girl's Guide! Alyson has a knack for writing and keeping things real which is sometimes hard these days. She's also all for supporting and empowering other women which I love! You can view the original interview here.
Name: Alexandra Gioia but you can call me Allie
Position + company: Owner + Jewelry Designer at Alexandra Gioia
… And this means? I get to play with the prettiest materials and turn them into something wearable to accessorize your outfit. I handle everything from the design aspect to managing our website + Etsy shop, customer service, packaging, social media content – you name it. I’m looking to hire an AG intern shortly! Interested?
Professionally, I’ve learned: What a difference it makes to surround yourself with like-minded/positive people who challenge you to be your best self not the ‘negative nancies’ who intentionally or unintentionally bring you down.
Go-to gadgets, apps and old-school techniques that help me get it all done:
I keep it old-school with my notepad/planner obsession and have to write everything down otherwise it’s forgotten. I’m a sucker for cute notepads like this one from ban.do!
In my fridge you’d find:
Well, I’m five months pregnant and am apparently making up for all the food I didn’t eat during the first trimester. So you’ll find anything from leftover spaghetti and meatballs, to tons of blueberries, steak for grillin’, salad supplies and oh yes, a half-eaten tub of Pillsbury vanilla frosting (help!).
