Aly Walansky created “A Little Aly-tude” on SheKnows.com in 2006, as one of the first well-known beauty and style blogs on the Internet, and that’s how she and Gina LaGuardia began working together (Gina was the Parenting Editor for SheKnows.com at the time). The online column became a foremost source for advice, tips, reviews, and commentary across the lifestyle genre.
Aly’s writing can be seen across the Internet as well as in several print publications. She contributes regularly to Beauty High, AskMen.com, Men’s Health, Women’s Health, The Daily Meal, xoJane, DailyMakeover.com, Paste Magazine, YourTango, Yahoo, and many more.
While she is well-known for her beauty and style writing — New Beauty Magazine rated her one of the top four beauty bloggers on the web in their Winter 2010 issue and Star Magazine rated her the hottest blogger on the Internet in 2011 — Aly is rather diversified in the blogosphere — she’s been hired to live-blog from locations ranging from the Miss America pageant to the Emmy Awards. In 2013, Media Kitty featured her, declaring her among the best and brightest in travel and lifestyle journalism.
Aly’s roots exist — pun intended! — in the realm of beauty and style, and she is quoted in countless publications on a weekly basis, and has appeared as a beauty expert on the FOX network and various radio programming, but her focus is far wider. She’s a popular travel and food writer and has traveled across the globe in the name of culinary, historical, and spa journalism.
