Each month, ELLE.com wades through the style blogosphere in search of just the right guest blogger—or in this month’s case, guest bloggers—to post regularly on our site’s Dispatch blog. In honor of our June Body Issue (starring Kerry Washington), we tapped Alexia Brue and Melisse Gelula, the founders of WellandGoodNYC.com, who’ll bring us their fitness and nutrition expertise.
