IN HER SHOES: Alyssa DiLoreto

Ok so I know what you are probably thinking….. Who is Alyssa DiLoreto? Should I know her name? Well she isn’t my typical IN HER SHOES feature. She’s not in the interior design world and she’s not a blogger.

But her work is somewhat related to blogs. Lately it seems like all of my favorite blogs have been offering give-aways on their blogs. I’ve done one or 2 and recently was contacted to do another (more details on that later) Well it’s Alyssa’s job to promote her companies clients by contacting blogs, etc and working with give-aways and promotions.

I was interested and wanted to know more about what I typical day was like for her, because not only does she work for Branding Brand, but she also goes to school at the University of Pittsburg where she is majoring in Marketing and Italian.

So if you want to get to know the person from those give-away emails sit back, relax and enjoy!


7:30 am: hit the snooze button 3 times

8:00 am: actually wake up, made some eggs & toast, put on some music to get ready. Current choice is Robin Thicke (loveee him!)

8:30: hop on the bus and go to work in the Cathedral of Learning

forbes Forbes Avenue (you can see the Cathedral of Learning in the background). It was a rainy day in Pittsburgh, but the Cathedral is still so beautiful!

9:00-11:30: work in the Italian Department at the University of Pittsburgh

11:30 am: Walk along Forbes Avenue to work at Branding Brand

12:30 pm: Grab lunch at Sushi Boat ( I had an avocado roll and spicy scallop roll...soo good!)

sushiboat Sushi Boat, this was the 3rd time this week that I had been there

3:00: Coffee break at Crazy Mocha, spoke some Italian with the barista and got a peach Italian soda (yum!)

4:00 pm: Left work a bit early to study for my final & picked up keys to my new apartment

6:00 pm: Went to to night class at University of Pittsburgh and took a final! (Managing Information Systems, not too exciting)

7:00 pm: Met up with my current and future roommate to check out our new apartment. We actually forgot what it looked like but were pleasantly surprised, it's so cute!

8:00 pm: Made a farewell dinner with my roommate by using anything that we had left. On the menu: pasta bolognese, fried zucchini, tilapia sauteed with onion, tomato and lime. For dessert, panna cotta gelato. Then, I packed up our apartment to move on Thursday and listen to more music (Timbaland, Aerosmith, Matt Nathanson, whatever came up on party shuffle), hang out with my roommate

12:00 am: Hung out with another one of my friends who lived downstairs in my building. She was moving out too, it was sad to see us all leave, but exciting to start fresh in a new place

12:30 am: Went to bed!! I was so tired

Even though I had a long day, and Thursday was even longer, I was still in a pretty good mood because I was wearing my favorite pair of Sam Edelman shoes from Chick Downtown.

A big thank you to Alyssa!

I hope you all enjoyed learning about her day. I’m nosey so I love getting to know more about people’s day especially people who get to take part in the blogging world.

Now stay tuned, because I’m just finalizing some details for a give-away from Chick Downtown and will have it posted later on today!

Wow, love those sandals! Sounds like a fun giveaway. BTW, Camila, I borrowed that green chair (from your post earlier this week) as one my inspirations this week!

I am scheming trying to figure out how to get one just like it!
