So, it’s been quite some time since my last blog post. Over a year, to be very honest. Fear, uncertainty, failure and frustration. All of those things creep up when one is yearning to succeed in something other than what has been expected of them for so long.  I have a love for many things. Style/fashion, photography, design, calligraphy, etc. I created this blog so I could have a place to showcase all of that and maybe, just maybe work hard… Read more »

So, this message has been in the works for a good 5 years now, since I started writing my blog in April of 2008. I have always loved photography, style and design. For like EVER. I began to teach myself and define my shooting style over the last few years. That part is always a work in progress but for me, simplicity is best. I love fashion, interior and product design and occasionally post my favorites on the blog. I… Read more »

Kristin Wiig of Saturday Night Live and Bridesmaids fame has such a great sense of style and can pull most any outfit off. Kristin’s style is sometimes simple, sometimes rocker chic and sometimes just plain gorg. I think that’s because she has confidence. Confidence is sexy. Confidence makes a world of difference whether you are working in an office, meeting friends for happy hour or going on a first date. I have found more confidence in a friend wearing a… Read more »

  Officially, on April 28th, my blog turned 3 years old!  I can’t believe how fast the time goes.   2011 is proving to be a  very challenging but exciting year so far, personally and professionally.  I’m vowing to blog more, as I always do…but I never quite achieve as much as I would like.  Next up on the blog is the 2011 Relay for Life of Macungie.    I shot the event last year because I had several friends participating and had never experienced… Read more »

LOVE!!!   Well,  we actually went to Target to get a garbage can…which we did.  Who goes to Target and purchases just one item?  No one.   I’m constantly looking for the right throw pillows and I have vowed not to settle!  These are perfect.  I love the color and design of them.  They go really well with the color and texture of our couch.    I love me some Target.

Check out my guest blog post over at Passport to Design.  Tania blends her love of design and travel into her blog that includes gorgeous photos of architecture, textiles, colors and so much more more.  Today I’m honored to be a featured as a guest blogger.  I decided to include photos of  our trip to San Juan, Puerto Rico a few years ago.  I just loved the El San Juan Hotel and Casino, and Old San Juan!  Take a peek… Read more »

I apologize for my time away from the blog! I have been working on a few things along with the day job. I hope to have some exciting things in the works for MarnieStyle…and I can’t wait for the Spring and Summer months to come. I’ve been struggling to find a balance betweeen work/home/and my real passions, but I’m finding my way. Look for new blog posts in April about Photography, Stylist work and my favorite things that I can’t… Read more »

Seriously loving Emma Watson’s new look.  Steering away from her Harry Potter days and trying to blend into Brown University’s student body, Emma is so simply gorgeous and comfortable in her skin.  Although I would never look good with a Pixie cut, I’ve always been tempted.  It just looks so simple yet stylish and sophisticated.   Maybe, if someone paid me to do it!!  The photos are from the most recent Marie Claire and Vogue Mags.

Loving this look from Actress Toni Collete today.  The scarf,  (double breasted?) grey jacket, skinny jeans, knee high black boots and fab Emerald green handbag.  I’m definitely on a mission to recreate this look!!  We’ll see if I can do it on a budget.  If I do, I will be sure to blog my great finds!! ***Next up, a full write up of our Toronto Trip and a Guest Blog Post!

Kenny and I decided to do something that we’ve never done…and drive up to Toronto, Canada.  We’ve heard so many good things about this city and wanted to experience it, even if it was only for 3 days.  Almost 4 days if you count all the driving we did!   Corktown Design Company in the Distillery District of Old Town Toronto.  We walked from Eaton Centre, to  St. Lawrence Market, onto the Distillery District.  There were so many great shops, brewery’s and business’s along the cobblestone streets.  We walked so… Read more »
