Samantha Escobar, Fashion & Beauty Editor
Sam has been writing for The Gloss since August 2012. She’s also contributed to YourTango, HuffPo Live, Puttenham Limited and Lovelyish, as well as The Gloss’s sister sites Blisstree and Crushable. After being a makeup artist for several years, she now enjoys sitting at a computer and typing her thoughts in sweatpants rather than touching people’s faces. She is a “cat person,” but also likes dogs and sloths more than most.

Jenni Maier, Managing Editor

Despite being born with an allergy to pickles and an addiction to WebMD, Jenni Maier is a full-time pop culture blogger and Editor-In-Chief of The Gloss’s sister site Crushable. During the rare times when Jenni Maier isn’t writing fan mail to Jennifer Lawrence or attempting to invent the next Pinterest, she’s out and about in New York City trying to score as many free food samples as possible. Her writing has appeared on Guyism, CollegeCandy and a few blogs that required her to use a fake name.

Heather Cichowski, Contributing Editor
Heather is a writer who feels it is a job requirement to own every shade of nail polish. She thinks any bad day can be improved by a trip to Sephora–provided there aren’t 10 people giving themselves makeovers, in front of the new lipsticks.

Eve Vawter, Contributing Editor
Eve has written for XoJane, Hello Giggles, Shew, Story Mag and numerous other print and online publications. She is currently the associate editor of Mommyish, and when she isn’t wrangling her four children she is making out with her husband, collecting shoes, debating on whether or not she is too old for glitter nail polish and obsessing over pop culture. She is amazingly jealous of Samantha Escobar’s hair.

Alana Milich, Intern
Alana has written for her parents and cats (and a few blogs), and is hoping to expand this list soon. She knows more Harry Potter trivia than she cares to admit. When she isn’t binge watching television, she is either sleeping or planning schemes to meet her favorite British celebrities.

Lily Savage, Intern
Lily is convinced she’s part leopard and is obsessed with nerdy boys and even nerdier literature. When she isn’t binge watching TV shows, she’s dreaming about the hundreds of dogs she’ll one day adopt, trying to convince E to create a reality show about her, and documenting her life via Snapchat.
