My absolute favorite thing about blogging has to be the people I have met along the way…You might ask yourself, “Whoa…what do you mean meet people? Don’t you just sit on the computer all day?” Well…no…blogging is all about building relationships!
At a recent Bloggers Block event at the Forre Fine Art Gallery in Fort Lauderdale, we definitely had some great presenters! As a matter of fact, that is where I met Lizz Smoak and joined her 7-Day Goal Getter Jumpstart Challenge!
That night I had the pleasure of meeting Carlos Marrero! Our eyes met from across the room and I knew this guy was good people:) When I really got to know Carlos, I was taken aback by this man’s amazing background in the fashion & beauty industry…As a fashion illustrator his works have graced the likes of magazines such a:s Vogue, Cosmo, Glamour, Mademoiselle, In Style…and the list goes on…He is also a certified trainer for the world-renowned makeup brand, Motives Cosmetics…ahem…completely VEGAN & CRUELTY-FREE ❤ This guy can do it all!
To think it all started as a young boy watching the iconic & classic television shows I Dream of Genie & Bewitched! Watching the whimsically drawn opening credits for that show, Carlos turned to his grandmother and told her that was what he wanted to do! BOY did he do it! Most recently, his collection has been featured on the radio show, South Florida Business Tonight on 880AM and WSVN Channel 7’s Deco Drive, as one of Shireen Sandoval’s Favorite Things!
Carlos Marrero does not refer to himself as a fashion designer, but a fashion illustrator. His illustrations are now the focal point of his new line, the Marrero Collection. From beautiful silk scarves to gorgeous handbags and accessories, the Marrero Collection satisfies the fashionista in all of us! The best part? Carlos Marrero is committed to cruelty-free beauty, “If Stella McCartney can do it, so can I!” Be still my heart ❤
Carlos also generously providing this blog with one of the accessories in his collection for a giveaway! Without further ado, I introduce you to the Marrero Collection!
My favorite scarf is definitely the Boho Chic Seahorses! This collection definitely has something for everyone…Don’t forget to enter the giveaway and try to win his Glamour iphone case for the 5s/5c! GOOD LUCK! Winner will be announced on Monday, August 17th (giveaway ends Friday, August 14th)
