About Alicia


Welcome to AliciaLatour.com! I’m Alicia, a traveler & explorer, vegan foodie and cruelty-free beauty enthusiast. You can always catch me wearing a corally lipstick shade and excessively applying SPF. I live somewhere in New York with my husband, David and our pup, Pepe. I started this blog back in late 2014 as a place to share all my favorite things, beauty tips/reviews, skincare obsessions, world travels and random life adventures.

I’m a hobbyist product photographer hoping to one day go professional (I’m working on it !) I also enjoy writing, playing with makeup, testing out skincare, traveling the world, baking delicious treats, oil-painting landscapes, and collecting random oddities (mostly from my travels).

I want my readers to find that spark of inspiration to explore the world, whether it’s a solo trip, or with their significant other. Maybe step out of their comfort zone to try some new foods – vegan or not. Or maybe (FINALLY!) buy that bold lipstick shade that they never thought they would wear. 

Glad to have you here and thanks for reading.

-Alicia !
