This week we are featuring an eclectic creative who is behind the lifestyle blog about life’s Little Fixations, Alyssa Broadus. We love her vintage twist that her photography portrays, plus her Instagram page has us daydreaming about doughnuts and coffee.
Meet Alyssa Broadus.
Who is Alyssa Broadus? Can you share a quick bio with us — where you’re from, what you do, and how you got where you are?
My name is Alyssa Broadus, and I live in Kansas City, Missouri! Although I’ve lived here most of my life, throughout college I was able to move to Los Angeles to attend FIDM, and spent a brief three months in New York City for a fashion internship at Allure Magazine. When I moved back to Kansas City, it felt brand new to me. New coffee shops, boutiques, and neighborhoods; and I ended up spending most of my days off exploring. I was so taken back by these places, that I wanted to find a way to capture and share them with others. That’s when Little Fixations was created!
Describe your style in three words.
Individualist, 70’s-Inspired, Practical.
What are your top three favorite Instagram accounts to follow and why?
My top three would have to be:
These women are all so wildly different, but inspire me every single day. Whether they have blue hair, are raising sweet little ones or build amazing art pieces, they remind me how important it is to chase your ambitions and go after what it is you want from life.
Right now I can’t stop wearing…
Overalls; It’s become an addiction! Short, long, jean or black, I am all about em’!
Last place I traveled to was…
Estes Park, Colorado! It was the third time I’ve gone in the last year. There is something so personal and wonderful about it. A definite, “happy place” for me.
I will never leave my house without…
A mason jar full of ice water and lemon. It’s something I look forward to every morning!
My coffee order is always…
Iced Americano with a little bit of cream. As of lately though, I’ve found an awesome iced matcha tea latte in KC, so that’s been a new go-to!
What’s your mantra?
Life is short; chase after what sets your soul on fire.
