Welcome to The Average Girl’s Guide (TAGG), a site dedicated to the idea that we are all the same average, typical gal who simply want to live our best life. It doesn’t matter if you’re 26 or 62, and what you do, 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, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram feeds for everything from style inspiration, easy recipes, and deals, to beauty finds, must-read books, and of course, TAGG’s Vent Sesh, a column that delves into little-discussed topics like weight, loneliness, babies (+ struggles to have), secret bff’s, scars and bad mom syndrome, just to name a few. We’re your handbook to live your best life.
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 firm, Seligman Brand Strategies), who’s passionate about everything TAGG has become. The site was started in 2010, following a life-changing illness after my daughter was born. My short story is that I become suddenly paralyzed on my 30th birthday. The doctors determined I have transverse myelitis, a 1/1 million neurological condition. After a month in the hospital, and many more of physical therapy and lots of medicine, I started my PR firm and the blog, and haven’t looked back since! I’m grateful each day that I can do what I love. Yes, it’s insane trying to get it all done but I’ve learned you do what you can and just enjoy every second.
I have an obsession with all things gold, pink and stripes, fun necklaces, the florida gators, fab flats, traveling, weekends by the pool, and playing on instagram. My favorite part about blogging has been connecting with so many other bloggers and readers — real women around the country that I would have never met otherwise. It’s out-of-this world amazing… if I’m being honest.
