Amy's Backstage Blog
Hi! I'm Amy Scalia, co-host here at Star64! I'm starting a new blog for the station's website, and I couldn't be more excited about it!
I love to write… it's in my blood… my grandma was actually one of the first female newspaper reporters in Ohio! After falling in love with writing as a Harrison High School student, I went to Miami of Ohio on an English scholarship. I got a BA degree in Mass Communications with a specialty in electronic journalism.
When I'm not hosting for Star64, I'm running an online women's publication in town called Cincy Chic. I started it about five years ago, and it now has more than 22,000 subscribers! Check it out at cincychic.com.
I also love to run (I've run three marathons!), cook, garden, make jewelry and crafts, shop for shoes (it's an addiction), and play with my Vizsla "Dino." So, here on the blog, I plan to post a variety of useful info that'll range from yummy recipes and gardening tips, crafting ideas and inspirations, as well as fashion trends, sales and events going on you'll want to know about.
So, bookmark this page and check back often! I'll be posting at least once or twice a week!
The 4th of July is coming up next weekend, so I've been busy collecting lots of fun food and decor ideas that will be perfect for any get-together you have planned (to host or attend!). Click here to view my 4th of July Pinterest board and check out the pics below to see a few of the great ideas I found!
A friend of mine who lives in Chicago posted a few months ago about a gourmet popsicle shop that opened up down the street from her. I thought that was such a great idea (sounds so YUMMY!) and wished we had one here in Cincinnati. Well, ask and you shall receive! I just got an email from Cincinnati Magazine with an announcement that a gourmet popsicle shop, called the "Pop Shop," is now open in Montgomery! Can't wait to check it out!
