About the blog

Dear Alexis is an L.A.-based lifestyle blog written by me, Alexis.

I’ve been “adulting” for about four years. In this time I’ve experienced plenty of ups and even more downs. This blog is a space for me to share all the things I love, my experiences and the lessons learned along the way.

So what kind of content can you expect? Tried-and-true adventures, plenty of book recommendations, and basically anything else I feel like writing about.

About ME

Hailing from a small town in Louisiana known for meat pies and Steel Magnolias (yes, the movie), I'm a quirky, iced-coffee-dependent writer. By day I'm being social with media at a news site. At night, I'm studying screenwriting at UCLA.

I've got a B.A. in Mass Communication from Northwestern State University of Louisiana, where one of my greatest achievements ever took place: I danced on top of a cafeteria table and was threatened with "severe" disciplinary action, but ironically went on to receive the highest honor a student could instead.

I have a penchant for contemporary romance novels and '90s R&B (yes, I’m a hopeless romantic.) I spend about 98% of my time at the movie theater and am rarely (read: basically never) scared by horror films. Everything I know about hard work and how to maintain a monochromatic wardrobe I learned from watching the Mighty Morphin’ Power Rangers. Most importantly, my love language is tacos.

In short: I’m just an enthusiastic pop culture nerd who likes to produce exciting content on this blog and off.
