Marianne is a twenty-something year old living in Raleigh, North Carolina with her cat, Luna. By day (and sometimes night), she is a retail manager for Madewell, where she is surrounded by and emerged into all things fashion. In April 2013, Marianne began The M.A. Times as a place to share all the other things she loves outside of her work. These passions include baking (first and foremost), interior decorating, fashion, beauty, entertaining, and crafting.

The M.A. Times is a place to remind people that even in the hustle bustle of our busy lives, it’s always important to take a moment to enjoy the simple things. Whether it is a morning cup of coffee, or a lavish dinner, The M.A. Times is about doing these things in a way that inspires yourself and others to make the most of every moment and to live life beautifully.
