About Me

Hi there, welcome to Lifestyles of a Basic Millennial! This blog embraces the basic in all of us by sharing relatable lifestyle content for the average millennial. You can expect authentic content that is approachable, inspiring and most importantly, real. 

 I’ll share my experiences – all of them. I’ll share travel tips, recipes, my favorite skincare and beauty products, motherhood and baby updates and much more. But I’ll also share the less glamorous topics like managing anxiety, how I’m learning to be body positive, and navigating the complex emotions that come with losing a parent to a terminal illness. Because it’s important to share it all – the good, the bad and the ugly.

My name is Alyssa and I’m a 29-year old new mom residing in a suburb of Detroit, Michigan with my husband and daughter. I’m a Marketing Manager for a food logistics company and I’m excellent at making the most of my allotted vacation days and budget to see the world and eat good food along the way. I’ll travel just to eat, and I’ll eat ramen for a week to travel. I’m a skincare junkie and barre addict. My Cat is my real-life spirit animal. She’s also Canadian. I consider myself 30% basic and I embrace all of it. Because let’s be honest, we’re all a little basic.
