La Petite Peach is a lifestyle blog covering fashion (for kids and adults), beauty, food, and more as told by writer, and stylist Desiree Spinner. After living with Italy with her first baby, she became so passionate about bringing fashion, and European sensibilities to her friends, and family. Now Desiree works closely with brands such as Serena and Lily, Munchkin, Marie Chantal, Childrens Salon, Cleobealla, and more- to bring selective mama’s, like her, the inspiration they crave.

Desiree Spinner

creative director / editor in cheif

 I love traveling/wandering, and my sweet babies! Studying abroad (before becoming a full-fledged writer, or a mom for that matter) is when I found the European less-is-more “ingredients” for life. Sharing that mindset in my writing for magazines, and websites is how I eventually created La Petite Peach for like-minded mama’s. Now I spend my days guest blogging, working through lunches with my editorial team, and of course, spending time with my little ones. If I can be present in those ways – I feel like a day accomplished!

Our team

Tanya Rustigian

Assistant Director of Operations

I joined La Petite in 2013. I graduated from Bridgewater State University in 2011 with a BA in Communications. After graduation, I lived on Martha’s Vineyard and spent a couple years traveling before coming back to my roots on Cape Cod. I am inspired everyday by my past travels, the environment around me and the people I have met along the way. I believe life is a journey and  I try to take full advantage of any opportunities that arise.

Ashley White

Director of Operations and Ad Sales

I grew up on the shores of Cape Cod and have always incorporated the ocean and beach into all aspects of my life.  After high school I ventured off to New Hampshire where I attended the University of New Hampshire and graduated in 2012 after double majoring in Communication and Recreation Management & Policy.  I spent the summer working in Chatham before I started with La Petite Peach and the rest is history!  Big changes are in the water for me, this fall I am packing up my life and Golden Retriever, Tallulah, and moving with my best friend to Oxford, Mississippi.  I have always had a love for travel, good BBQ, country music (check out my personal blog, Jam Catchers), and all things southern and can’t wait to see what this next adventure holds!

I am Arizona born, but New England raised and strives to live as close to the coast as I can. Starting from an early age I was always crafting and creating. Following the natural path placed before me, I attended Stonehill College and graduated in 2009 with a degree in Studio Arts. In 2011, life brought me to the Cape where I met Desiree and the rest is history!  I love being involved with all aspects of the blog and especially the fun graphics! I loves to travel, meet new people, and discover new places.
