By all appearances, the world is Alyson Seligman’s runway.
Hyperconnected and not a hair out of place, the South Florida lifestyle blogger is an in-demand “influencer” who’s worked for T.J.Maxx, Revlon, Bacardi and Scotch Duct Tape, highlighting their products on her peppy website, TheAverageGirlsGuide.com (“A handbook for your best life”).
She’s one of 17 women nationwide whom Target selected to preview its merchandise, and People Style Watch and Redbook will share her shopping tips in fall issues. She also runs her own PR firm, Seligman Brand Strategies.
In so many ways, the 33-year-old wife and mother is, to use one of her favorite phrases, “having a moment.” And it feels amazing.
“Three years ago, four years ago, five years ago, I could never see me sitting in this moment, with a blog and a business and a 3 1/2-year-old,” she says.
That’s because Seligman, who appears to be the picture of health, struggles daily with medical issues. She’s survived a rare disorder that left her temporarily paralyzed and permanently altered.
