A quick introduction…

My name is Monica Mercuri, and I’m a lifestyle blogger & freelance journalist based on the East Coast. I’m also a contributing writer for Forbes.com, where I cover the business of media and Hollywood. My lifestyle blog, found here, is my creative outlet to share all of my favorites — my go-to beauty products, affordable fashion buys, my Amazon essentials, and even my personal Italian cooking recipes passed down to me from my Nonna.

My favorite part about journalism is interviewing, and I’ve been able to speak with inspiring public figures like Wiz Khalifa, Queer Eye hosts Antoni Porowski and Bobby Berk, Sarah Hyland, Noah Schnapp, Ashley Tisdale, Sarah Michelle Gellar, and more. My writing has also appeared in BillboardStyleCasterFlighthouse MediaForbes Magazine, and The GW Hatchet.

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from George Washington University’s School of Media and Public Affairs with a B.A. and Special Honors in Journalism & Mass Communication. I also enjoy murder mystery podcasts, golden retrievers (or any type of doggo for that matter), and finding the recipe for the best gooiest chocolate chip cookies out there.
