Hi there! I’m Alexandra, a 23-year-old nomad on my way back to New York. After experiencing some Faustian crises and existential qualms, I set out on a mission to engage with the areas of life that promote light, and to apply those to moments of darkness. Out of this search for shiny things, My Shiny Reflections was born in 2014 during my gap year between high school and college.
Starting in Malibu, and making my way through New York and Boston, I have explored the nature of my happiness, and the role I play in fostering positivity and gratitude in my daily life. My Shiny Reflections has grown with me through these discoveries as a blog that records my adventures, delights, obstacles, and resolutions. As a sensitive explorer, I hope to offer a new perspective for others who have come across similar questions, dilemmas, or joys, and to spark thoughts in those who have not.
