Hi there, and welcome to The <not so> Average Girl’s Guide (TAGG)! At the end of the day, we are all the same real girl who wants to live her best life. Whether you’re 26 or 62, and regardless of what you do, where you live, your background….we’re all connected by this fabulous tribe of talented, smart, funny, gorgeous women… let’s come together and do this thing.
TAGG features everything from style inspiration, wearable trends, easy recipes, latest finds and deals, plus beauty favorites and how to’s, must-read books, and of course, TAGG’s Vent Sesh, a feature 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.
And, by the way… TAGG is written by me… Alyson Seligman, a 30-something Florida girl who also owns a PR company, is a mom of two incredible kiddies, and is passionate about creating a better community, locally and with women around the world. I think each of us could benefit from having more honest conversations, recognizing that most of us deal with crap in silence when really, so many of us have the same struggles, and hopefully, victories! Let’s work together to solve the struggles and celebrate each other’s victories. Woop, woop! (yeah, yup, I totally just made a 90s rap expression here.)
I started TAGG in 2010, after I had was diagnosed with a rare, life-changing neurological condition called transverse myelitis. I started my PR firm, somewhat accidentally as I got back into consulting, and the blog around the same time, and here we are! I’m grateful for each day that I can do what I love, and have such incredible people in my life.
I’m a fan of all things gold, pink and white, volunteering, trader joe’s dark chocolate peanut butter cups, accessories, florida gators, fab flats, traveling, weekends by the pool or at a greenmarket, and playing on Instagram.
