This past May, That Girl At The Party (TGATP) celebrated a landmark nine years, as one of the first NYC based lifestyle blogs. I always described the site as an “online magazine. Because, while I am a very proud blogger, TGATP was never a one topic blog that suddenly claimed to be about “lifestyle.” From its very inception, That Girl At The Party has been about “all the lifestyle, it is fit to live”. A magazine junkie since childhood, I envisioned producing a magazine, like my favorites O, Allure and Vanity Fair. However, the technology was far too complicated to make that dream a reality…till now.
Today, I am happy to announce the launch of That Girl At The Party Magazine! The monthly magazine will feature stories in the same lifestyle categories – beauty, travel, entertainment, fashion, tech, home food, kids and pets – that the blog currently covers. However, the magazine will now serve as an additional outlet for my content. This expansion will allow readers to stay abreast of the very best products, films and destinations, brands to reach thousands more consumers and savvy PR people to have another major outlet for their clients. In addition, there will be interviews with the people, who inspire me the most. Future issues will also have a “buy it now” feature allowing readers to buy products straight from my pages and branded TGATP video content.
The first issue is all about the holidays with 152-pages packed with gift ideas, recipes and inspiring words to make the holiday season bright. While solely digital now, future expansion for That Girl At The Party includes a monthly limited run of print copies of the magazine, as well.
Thanks to all my friends and family, other “bloggers/editors” – particularly Anne Raso, Hillary Latos, Maya Litovsky, Diane Kronstad and Rachel Kapur – PR people, and also all the brands that have supported That Girl At The Party, these past nine years. This would not have been possible without you. Each of you, in your own very special ways, inspired me to expand my brand and make this dream a reality.
