frequently asked

I'm Italian so my olive skin comes from my mom's side but I like to maintain my glow even in the winter months, so I wrote a post about it here.

what self tanner do you use?

I started many beginnings of blogs over the years but it wasn't until summer 2017 (August, maybe?) that I created A With Love. I originally titled it Diary of She. Yikes.

when did you start your blog?

I attended the University of New Hampshire at Durham. I majored in English/Journalism with minors in both Spanish and Communication.

what was your major in college?

what was your major in college?

We're getting married late September 2021! Still a while away but thankful that it's given us enough time to plan the way we want without the rush.

When are you getting married?

do you run the blog full time?

No, I work full time during the week in digital marketing. My writing for the blog and any events I attend always take place at night or on the weekends.

can you share your skincare routine?

In the mornings I cleanse, tone, and ice roll my face to de-puff. At night, I cleanse, tone, and use an essence. I top it all off with a firming serum and thick, hydrating night cream.

where do you shop for clothes?

I love Everlane for denim, Aerie for bathing suits, Banana Republic for workwear, Madewell for shoes and chunky knits, and Nordstrom for well...everything.

what do you use to curl your hair?

I have always had medium-long hair with layers for the most part, so I use the 1 1/4-inch barrel curling iron from Hot Tools. Bought it at CVS years ago and it hasn't failed me yet!

what hair products are your favorite?

I have SO many, but I can't live without Aveda Color Conserve shampoo, MoroccanOil, Whatever-Wherever Dry Conditioner, Oribe Dry Shampoo and Oribe Dry Texture Spray.
