About the Team
Shayna and Alexa met in Mr. Mart's sixth-grade class. Although they barely keep in touch, they both love getting brunch and turning down for they don't know what and being "about it." They're tight like the pony tail your mom tied for your 1998 recital. Alexa is the brainchild of Fab Feminist. She started the blog on Tumblr and realized it was time to upgrade to a Big Girl Blog in January 2016. She's already started lying about her age and has an inclination toward strong language, strongly held opinions, and strong coffee. Shayna is a bigwig New York City journalism gal. She does the editing for Fab Feminist. She got a cat in 2016. Sometimes Alexa adds gratuitous commas just to piss her off.
Giuliana is a New Jersey journalist and digital marketer. At Eckerd College, 2010, the stars aligned. Giuliana happened to get in line for Freshmen Orientation right behind Alexa. The two quietly checked out each other's style until they were handed their dorm room keys and went to move into their rooms. The unpacking began and not 10 minutes in, Giuliana, drenched in sweat, looks up from fumbling with her new keys to see Alexa, hardly breaking a sweat as she carried what could have only been a fraction of her closet into her dorm room, right next door. The rest is history. The thousand miles between the two women is no match for this duo. When she's not snuggling her little black cat, on the phone with Alexa, or bopping around Princeton, Giuliana's exploring her home state of NJ and its many surrounding areas and documenting them for her blog that was recently launched called New Jersey Nomad.
Lindsey is our illustrator. She and Alexa grew up next door to each other in weird ol' Florida and rekindled their magical friendship at Bonnaroo in 2012. She's busy getting her undergraduate degree from some place in Ohio, but still finds time to draw some pics for our posts.
About the Blog
We're millennials. We're working full-time jobs, second jobs, and finding the time in between to create content we think the world deserves to read. We're a little broke. We're not perfect. We are NOT here to represent a perfect life, a perfectly messy bun, a perfect $2,499 tote bag, marble counters, or monochrome (unless it's black, tbh). We're here to serve some working-girl realness as best friends living on opposite ends of the east coast trying our damnedest to fiercely support each other because we know we can't do it alone.
