About The Wordy Girl AKA Maria Tettamanti

Thewordygirl.com is a funny blog about serious fashion, travel, beauty and food penned by Maria Andy Tettamanti. Maria is also a Miami-based journalist for The Miami Herald, Ocean Drive and Miami.com. She is an HSN Guest Host and appears regularly on the Home Shopping Network. Additionally, Maria writes for Saks Fifth Avenue and The Standard Hotel on their corporate blogs. Known by all as The Wordy Girl, Maria has published works in USA Today, Allure, Us Weekly and Life & Style publications. From an online standpoint, Maria has published pieces on Daily Candy, Urban Daddy, MSN, Refinery29 and OceanDrive.com. She is also a Social Media Ninja and handles the social media for several high-brow businesses. Did we mention she’s a mystery blogger too? Yes, she anonymously blogs on behalf of other individuals. So cool, we know!

Maria is often asked if she’s Cuban due to her incessant use of the word, “Aye!” but here’s the real deal: She was raised in the idyllic seaside town of Cape May, New Jersey by her super Greek parents who eventually tired of the cold weather and moved to sunny Coconut Grove, Florida. In the Sunshine State, Maria attended Ransom Everglades High School and graduated from the University of Florida with a bachelor’s degree in Journalism. After numerous full-time editor roles in the rough-and-tumble world of magazines, Maria now freelances from her home because she is vehemently allergic to cubicles. And mean bosses. And office dress codes. In fact, Maria prefers to work in her pajamas with an unwashed face. Doesn’t everyone?

Married to her college sweetheart, Sebastian, Maria is the mother of two brilliant children who will most likely grow up to decipher the cure to cancer, win Pulitzer prizes or become Bravo TV executives. Or all three. On this quirky blog, Maria shares her words on designer fashion, luxury travel, current beauty trends and personal development — and whatever whims come to her mind on that particular day.  Folks like her blog so much, The Wordy Girl has been featured live on the Today Show and Sirius XM Radio and has been featured in an ELLE magazine spread. The Wordy Girl was named Miami’s #1 Fashion Blog in 2015 by Racked.com. Maria has collaborated with brands such as Saks Fifth Avenue, Chanel, Neiman Marcus, ELLE Magazine, GAP, Burberry, Audi, Cadillac, OMEGA watches, Warby Parker, Lululemon, Target, Comcast, Soho Beach House and more. Giving back to the community is tantamount, too, Maria donates her time to non-profit organizations such Style Saves, St. Jude Children’s Hospital, Miami Rescue Mission, Fashionably Conscious and Milk + Bookies. And when not sweating her next assignment over a hot keyboard, Maria can be found chasing her two toddlers, at Target, Facebooking, Twittering, Pinning, Instagramming, viewing horrid reality television programming or shopping. More of the last one, really.

    Hi Maria
    I’d love to send you vouchers for our Italian gelato which is now available from Publix. Its completely different from any other gelato as its actually made in Italy the traditional way and it tastes absolutely awesome (plus its gluten free, lower in fat, kosher, blah blah blah). But it TASTES so good. I’d love to offer free vouchers to your top fans too – but thats obviously your choice. Could you email me: [email protected] if you would like to try some?
    Thanks, Nigel, GelARTo Inc.
