Welcome to The Average Girl’s Guide (TAGG)! This quasi blog/web site was created based on the notion that we are all the same average, typical gal who want to live our best, most fabulous life. We want to look good, feel kick-ass, be successful (whether that’s climbing the corporate ladder or being a stay-at-home-mom) and have fun. It doesn’t matter if you’re 26 or 62, where you live, your background…. we’re all pretty much the same at the end of the day. Spend time here and on TAGG’s Facebook and Twitter pages for plenty of fashion inspiration, easy meal recipes and snack reviews, special discounts, + something very special to TAGG, “Vent Sesh” where TAGG delves into weight, loneliness, secret bff’s, the impact of social media, etc.. It’s your handbook to live your best life!

 TAGG is proud to be a member of Target’s Inner Circle. What’s that you ask? Read more here

Who’s the voice behind TAGG? That’s me, Alyson, a 30-something living in Florida who’s a wife, daughter, mom and a working gal (I own a pr/digital media firm called Seligman Brand Strategies) who strives to be the best version of herself. I have a slight obsession with cute cardigans, nutella, watches, florida gators, fab flats, traveling and people watching.  I love to be in-the-know, find the best deals, and discover the latest foods and healthy treats. And, I love to chat and write… which is why this blog is one of biggest loves.

Be sure to say hi, comment, tweet, pin, like, etc (it makes so me happy!). Have a question for TAGG? Email me at averagegirlsguide@gmail.com!

    i love this already cant wait to get started

  • Lauren

    I love your blog and thinks it’s incredible you are able to keep up with it along with a full time job and a family. Do you have any tips for how to carve out time to run a successful blog? Thanks!

    • Alyson

      Hi Lauren, thank you! It is a bit of a magical feat to keep it all running. I do the best I can and my biggest tip of late, is if you can’t do a post, don’t kill yourself. Better to do three amazing posts each week rather than 5 ‘eh’ posts. Also, good big visuals and a clean design hugely help! Feel free to email me anytime to chat more.

    Please be aware that Mrs Alyson here has enjoyed making fun of one of our greatest service men. United States Navy Seals Chris Kyle was a fine man that stood for our rights and did what he was ordered. You are disgusting ma’am! You joule renounce your citizenship and leave this country

    except i can guarentee you have never been a victim of a break in or a armed robbery, if u hate soldiers then gtfo and also if one does confront you with a gun and you have nothing what do you think will happen? your a victim and can do nothing about it. criminals dont obey laws you idiot if they did then these “gun free zone” schools wouldnt be paying for protection, or getting shot up. you are an american disgrace plz go play in the interstate.

    Hi, just stumbled across your blog and absolutely love it. I’m a fashion designer & blogger from London. I’ve browsed through so many bloggers over 30, looking for someone I feel I can relate to (I’m 29 – but all the blogs I ever come across are by 20 year olds) and I really like your style of writing and the things you write about. Will be following you on Twitter, etc. Angel xx
