Ali Loves


My motto:   Be awesome.   Love Big.   Do epic shit.   Leave a legacy.



Hello there. I’m Ali Rastiello – wife, leader, marketer, writer, foodie, wino and lover of all things pop culture. This is my little piece of the internet where I share my thoughts on topics I feel really passionate about.



Global marketing automation leader for Rackspace. Love my team. Love my company. Love what I do… almost to a fault.


Mah Boo, the internet, binge-watching TV, frequenting the Alamo Drafthouse to watch movies like it’s my actual job, concerts, cooking for my friends and family


Foo Fighters and all things Dave Grohl, Adele, healthy eating, Converse, vintage everything, Honest Beauty lip gloss in Creative Kiss, Angel Schlesser perfume, Fixer Upper, teeny pigs and the Apple commercial for Siri featuring Cookie Monster


101 live major acts, roughly 160 shows 


16k+ songs and counting


Beauty products, fried chicken, wine, vodka, Foo Fighters


Dave Grohl, Adele, Jon Stewart and anyone else who follows their passions and finds success on their own terms



Words To Live By…

Figure out who you are, what inspires you and don’t look back. Develop that individuality by working as hard as you can at what you love.



“I’m really happy to be me, and I’d like to think people like me more because I’m happy with myself and not because I refuse to conform to anything.”



“Love what you do. Get good at it. Competence is a rare commodity in this day and age. And let the chips fall where they may.” 



“Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
