My name is Kristin Magaldi, and I'm an ecommerce editor and writer who specializes in lifestyle, beauty, fashion, health, home, and tech. Currently, I work as a Features Editor for Hellogiggles.com, where I edit and write all types of content ranging from e-commerce product reviews, personal essays, long-form reported pieces, and second-day takes. Since starting there in 2017, I’ve learned not only how to optimize content for search, social media, and Apple News, but how to thoughtfully and sensitively cater content to specific audiences while maintaining brand voice. You can find my articles published online for outlets like Newsweek, MTV, Cambio, Medical Daily, Romper, and Bustle.
