Alexandra Moss

Wearing the right pair of shoes makes me feel like I can take over the world. Walking into M4D3's showroom made me feel like I could take over the galaxy. I've never witnessed so many different styles, textures and designs ​from one brand in one place. Beyond that, I loved so many of them it was hard to decide which to take home (I decided on the Mara which is now sold out. Sorry loves)! M4D3 has some of the most comfortable soles I've ever walked in and quality designs I have ever had the pleasure of wearing, but that isn't even the best thing about them. For every shoe purchased, two books are donated to a child in need through their partnership with First Book. Not only are you getting a pair of shoes to make all your friends wish they wore the same size as you, but you're educating the world. I'm counting down the days until the Fall collection!

Four Sigmatic Mushroom Coffee Mix
Confession: I'm afraid of instant coffee. At least I was before I tried this. It gave me all the energy I get from coffee without the "I need coffee to feel like this" feeling. It's super easy to make and doesn't take much time, two big things I look for in a coffee search. Oh, did I mention how good it is? I was terrified before trying it because, mushroom coffee? Sounds gross. It's not. It's also awesome for people that react negatively to coffee, like with stomach issues and big crashes after the effects wear off. Ten packets come in a small box. I recommend you head to the website right now.


Book lovers unite! There's nothing quite like the scent of an old bookstore or the serenity that surrounds it. Turns out, you can have that anywhere. Lighting this makes you feel like you just walked straight into Belle's castle and you aren't going to want to leave for a while. So pick up your favorite long book, light this candle, and enjoy the peace that can only come from a good book.

Micellar Makeup Remover Facial Spray
I am all about skincare. So much so that my evening routine takes me 45 minutes to complete, but sometimes I get home and I'm too exausted to move, much less wash my face. That's where this comes in. I keep this micellar spray right beside my bed for days when my energy is completely shot. It's so easy because it cleans your face better than most cleaners and it takes so little effort. It's perfect for taking off makeup in general, but if you're like me, you'll keep it on your nightstand with a moisturizer close by.

Alexandra is planted in New York City which she considers to be the greatest city in the world (Paris is a close second). She had moved over thirty times by the age of twelve and has since lost count. This brought on an insane case of wanderlust for which she hopes to never find a cure.  Growing up, she was a huge Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen fan which led her to find a love for fashion as they grew to be designers.  She considers Audrey Hepburn to be the best dressed person of all time and often looks through pictures of her when she can't decide what to wear. She has an avid fear of getting wrinkles and avoids things that bring them like the plague.

She absolutely hates to be alone and finds any excuse to plan parties, cook for friends, or even herd children. You will often find her watching Annie (2014), crafting, convincing people to hold her hand, wearing dark lipstick, asking someone what their favorite thing about life is, or sitting with half a watermelon in her lap with a spoon. She loves to win (even in noncompetitive situations), Christmas, and to serve people in any way she can.
