Hi there!

I’m Ava, lover of coffee and fitness by day, wine and carbs by night.  Here on Ava Lately I hope to inspire through my NYC adventures, outfits, beauty tips and more!   Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy! Xo


about my


My blogging journey first began a few years ago with The Fit Girls Dish, a healthy living website I ran with my mom. It was a wonderful way to work creatively and professionally together, and the opportunities we experienced were amazing! Over time, however, my mom had to pull away (with great reason!) to give her thriving catering company her all. With this shift, one door closes and another opens. Welcome to Ava Lately, a true reflection of me, my style and my life in NYC.

Are you a girl’s girl? Do you love brunching, exploring, having too many glasses of wine, or laughing until you cry? Do you love working out, shopping the latest fashion trends or trying out the newest beauty products? If so, we should probably be friends. I love to blog because of the sense of community, and the chance to share, motivate, and inspire each other.

Take a look around and lets connect!
