All About Aly

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. Over time, it became a foremost source for advice, tips, reviews, and commentary across the lifestyle genre.

Her 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 MealxoJane,  HowAboutWe,  Life &Beauty, Latest Hairstyles, Celebuzz, DailyMakeover.com, The Fashion Spot, New Beauty Magazine, Bella NYC Magazine, 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 — she’s 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 lifestyles journalists.

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.

Aly currently resides in New York City.

The Age Fix — The One Book On Your Reading List That May Make You Look and Feel Younger For Summer

Recently, I’ve been feeling kind of down in the dumps about the test of time. You know those ‘on this day; flashbacks we can view every day on Facebook? They are the death of me. Every single day I see a post where I was younger. Cuter. Thinner. Endless scenes of people who were once my everything, now out of my life. It can be nostalgic and fun at times, sure. But it’s also downright depressing. Marching forward seems to be a constant approach toward, well, a downward spiral. It’s a constant torture to see. And I...

Stress and our skin are pretty miserable bedfellows

Since I have been a kid, stress has always made weird things happen to my skin — I’d have flareups of fever blisters, my rosacea would worsen, I’d get random breakouts and irritations. I always thought it was just me. Some sort of nervous reaction, but I’m not alone. Stress wreaks havoc on all areas of our life, and our skin isn’t getting off any luckier than the rest of us. So with most of us under stress – the American Psychology Association (APA) recently conducting a study, ‘Stress in...

Are IV Infusions The Answer To Your Skin’s Desires?

We’re all familiar with the concept of IV infusions. We maybe have seen them in doctor’s offices or hospitals, used to allow medication to seep into veins over an extended period of time. People are even fed via IV, if necessary. But of late, IV infusions have entered a whole new domain. Now you can use IVs to get your vitamin fix, brighten skin, relieve hangovers, hydrate skin, and so much more. Celebrities like supermodel Chrissy Teigen have even posted Instagrams enjoying the benefits of IV Infusions. There’s lots of...

Are We Ready For The Brave New World Of Digital Skincare?

Cosmetic and skincare brands have been heading online for quite a while, but now they have gone digital in a whole new way. Lately, everything from the skincare consult to even diagnoses have gone digital. You’ll see digital applications in use at makeup counters, on apps, for everything from identifying best skincare products to potential skin cancer signs, but does it really help identify skin problems? Is it a tool or an asset or a danger because it doesn’t give us the in-person consult we really need? We’ve all seen the rise...

Are You Spa-ing and Using Plastic Surgery To Improve Your Sex Life?

Aging is weird (that’s why I like to pretend I’m not)

Aging is weird (that’s why I like to pretend I’m not)

I always thought I’d be a grownup by this age. Like, a real grownup. With a husband and a few kids and a dog and maybe a home with more than one closet. More than one room, even. But yet, here I am, halfway through my thirties, and I have none of those things (except the dog), and mentally/emotionally, I still feel really young. Way younger than I always thought mid-thirties would feel. Except I have a constant reminder I am in said mid-thirties: the mirror. I’ve noticed it especially the last year or two. Call it stress or just...
