Carlita Brasington

Carlita Brasington is a Los Angeles-based journalist with over 8 years of experience covering Southern California retail, fashion, beauty, wellness, travel, and lifestyle. As an editor and writer, she has cultivated strong relationships in a range of industries and developed an analytical eye for what makes a compelling brand. In her free time, Carlita enjoys scouring Pinterest for the best recipes, strumming away at her guitar, carefully curating her 10-step skincare routine, and Sunday’s in the park with her dog Lucy. When she isn't out and about, Carlita also enjoys decorating her apartment, enjoying a cup of coffee, and experimenting in the kitchen with local, seasonal ingredients.

Carlita says that her passion for writing comes from her desire to make sure people don’t waste their money on products that don’t fulfill customer needs. It’s her duty to keep readers informed about every good deal and every spectacular product. Carlita is also passionate about using words and images to tell the stories of people, places, products, brands, and publishers. If you’re looking for an insightful, witty, sassy take on the best products for anybody, anytime, anywhere, look no further than buying guides, product reviews, and commerce articles written by Carlita Brasington.
