Hi, I’m Marlene
I’m a magazine editor by trade (10+ years, baby!) covering the same topics I cover right here on the blog: fashion, beauty and all things luxury lifestyle.
I’ve always been obsessed with magazines but at some point, they started to let me down. Thumbing through the parade of fur coats in August when I live in AZ is not a sweattastic approach I can get on board with. And reading about some socialite’s jetsetting lifestyle is just plain deflating sometimes. I stopped feeling the connection.
Enter, StyleSizzle, my personal little cutting room floor where I share the stylish things I come across while on assignment, as well as some of my personal secrets to living a glamorous desert lifestyle. Because one thing is truly attainable: a little dose of glamour in your real, everyday life. And whether you’re busy working round-the-clock launching your own business or planning your kid’s next birthday party, we all deserve some pretty pleasures in life.
I’m also a wife, new mommy and known to drop the F-bomb here and there. So if you hate happiness and photos of beautiful babies, move right along!
I’ve met and interviewed some pretty awesome peeps in the industry like Christian Louboutin, Tim Gunn, Laura Mercier and Monique Llhuillier. As for the whole writing gig, I’m the Editor in Chief of a luxury lifestyle magazine and some crazy-cool people have published my work like: Latina, Girls Life, Diet Pepsi, Everyday with Rachael Ray, SheKnows, CherylStyle and many more. I’ve even been invited on TV a few times as a Style Expert, it’s pretty neat.
