HI!I’m Alissa Nichole, a Native New Yorker… Brooklyn, to be exact… wanderluster and DIY ninja that marches to the beat of my own drum. My favorite things are creating art (I am the founder and boss of GloriJoy, a handmade jewelry and homegoods shop), photography, leopard print, everything bagels, traveling, books, gold jewelry, crystals, incense and bright colors.
I come from a creative (and technology rich) background; I started off my career as a web designer, teaching herself HTML and Photoshop in middle school. After about 25 years in the game, I switched gears and began to focus my energy on fashion, style and personal styling. My hard work and never-ending quest for knowledge has earned me certificates in Image Consulting (May 2015 – FIT), Personal Styling (June 2015 – School of Style) and Fashion Styling (October 2015 – School of Style).
Oh, and I also blog! I started off back in the late 90’s, early 2000’s with a blog called BrownGirlGenius and eventually made carved out my own fabulous fashion niche a few years ago with Originally Remixed. Now, I’m back with The Remix. The Remix is dedicated to creativity, remixing your comfort zone (with style!) and helping you live your best life, offline AND online.
I’ll be blogging often about three of my favorite things: fashion, food and the fly life… and hopefully you’ll get inspiration for your next big style change, dinner party or destination!
Got a story to tell? Just want to say hi? Drop me a line!
I’d love to hear from you.
