Born and raised in Johnston, Rhode Island (home of DJ Pauly D...thanks "Jersey Shore"), a few formative college years in Washington, DC and a New Yorker since 1996. After several tiny apartments, a motely crew of crazy roommates who stole my stuff, a couple trips to small claims court, and two fires, I'm still standing and I will go down with this city!
Daughter of Italian immigrants who are celebrating 50 years of marriage. Auguri! I'm a lover of fitness, fashion, beauty, travel, music, movies, television. Part-time spin instructor and makeup artist and full time beach bum. When I'm not hanging out with the fabulous staff at xojane.com, you can find me at the gym, at the beach, on my couch re-watching episodes of "The Wire".
