Lovely Links: MerelyMarie

It's been awhile since we've shared a lovely link with you, and I'm delighted today to share one of my daily reads: MerelyMarie. If you're not already familiar, she's a lifestyle blogger, a professional graphic designer and her blog is full of style, hair and foodie inspiration.

From her about page: "Blogging has gone beyond a mere fascination for me. It’s a part of my life’s work."


Many of us start blogging as a hobby or a creative outlet and it becomes much more than that. As I've often said, it becomes a vehicle to pursue your passions, whatever those things are. And ultimately, blogging can help you find your people - the ones who inspire, motivate and drive you to continue to create. Marie has definitely inspired me in many ways. Here are a few of my favorite posts from her blog:

Being Who You Are: But, What If You're Quiet?

As I mentioned above, Marie is also a professional graphic designer with her own business: MerelyBlogDesign.

From her business about page: "If content is indeed king in the blog world, than MerelyBlogDesign believes “Design is Queen”   Often times the best content goes unread, simply because the presentation is lackluster. An attractive design will charm new readers, and keep your current ones coming back for more. You may even find yourself unable to stay away, for too long."

Compelling, right? If you are in the market for a blog redesign, I encourage you to check out samples of her work and what packages she has to offer. 

I love to see women defining fulfillment for themselves and using their gifts. I read a quote the other day that I scribbled on a sticky note on my desk:

"You, being yourself, helps others to be themselves."

If you are seeking a creative outlet, remember that it is seeking you too! You never know who you might inspire, what dreams you may fulfill, and how you may impact the world.

Here's to exploration and discovery! Be sure to check out MerelyMarie.
