That Alabaster White

About Us


Though her passion was (and is) devoted to shimmery shadows, creams, potions and lotions, Gretchen Gallows worked in various corporate capacities which did not necessarily reflect that interest. She spent seven years working as a financial writer and editor. In April 2012, she launched this site, a fusion of beauty news and reviews, pop culture references and personal anecdotes. Gretchen has always felt as if she WON something when she identified a pop culture reference. She hopes you feel the same way when you pinpoint one of her (perhaps) obscure ones.
