Alaina Kaczmarski    

Co-Founder & Editor of The Everygirl

Alaina Kaczmarski is the cofounder and editor of The Everygirl Media group. Ten years ago, she launched her personal blog Live Creating Yourself. Six years ago, she launched The Everygil.

A Chicago native, Kaczmarski graduated from Syracuse University in 2008 with degrees in magazine journalism and psychology with big dreams of editing at Vanity Fair or The New Yorker. Alaina's inherent wanderlust blossomed after spending a semester in London, so post-graduation, she decidedly packed a U-Haul and her puppy and headed south to Washington, D.C. with stars in her eyes and not a single connection to call on. Kaczmarski found her first job the old-fashioned way: a newspaper ad and a solid interview. She spent the next year doing communications and graphics for a small children’s advocacy non-profit organization where she gained valuable insight into cubicle life, made great friends, and quickly realized she missed Chicago.

After much thought, Kaczmarski headed back to the Windy City and moved in with her mom (while continuing her NPO work from home). A few months later, unsure of what direction her life would lead, she started a blog, Live Creating Yourself, and began writing about design. And photography. And travel. She found inspiration in the quote, “Life is not about finding yourself, life is about creating yourself.”

She currently live with her husband, Dan, and their two cockapoos, Tucker and Fiona, in a greystone house they're renting on the west side of Chicago. She loves romantic movies, flowers on her coffee table, and singing instead of talking.
