With strong ties to Campania and Sicily, I've been fortunate enough to grow up surrounded by my parents, siblings, grandparents, and cousins for almost every occasion. In our family, food and an unabashed excitement for life is at the epicenter of everything we do and feel; it is who we are at our very core. And so what I write and share here is forever inspired by the Mediterranean way of living I've become so anchored to and enamored by.
Welcome, friend! I'm Alyssa - Boston native, fashion lover, and founder of A With Love. Since 2017, I've worked to curate a space uniquely my own, weaving together my passions in a way that inspires you to amplify yours.
I'll take an iced triple espresso with almond milk, please!
Aglio e Olio and Carbonara. Always with bucatini. Always.
I've partnered or collaborated with 10 small and large brands.
Drunk Elephant, Is Clinical, and Shani Darden are my go-tos.
I earned a Bachelor of Arts in English/Journalism from UNH.
The kitchen is where I begin each morning with my coffee and cap off my evening with a glass of wine, a delicious meal, and good conversation. You could say it's my happy place here in our home.
Matt and I have been together almost a decade now and are set to be married later this year. He is my guiding light, my person. Even after all this time, he still knows how to make me laugh and smile.
At home, I am loyal to my Nespresso. When I'm out and about, my go-to order is either a triple shot of espresso with almond milk, extra ice at Starbucks or a piping hot cappuccino in the North End.
I've spent every summer since I was born at my grandparents' home in Dennisport, Mass. It's where I feel most at peace and relaxed. It's also where Matt proposed. It holds a very special place in my heart.
