Hello FLLS Fam,
I’m Marú, a proud native of St. Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands with a love for all things fashion, beauty and style. I am a self-proclaimed tea lover, cupcake connoisseur and planner addict who enjoys cooking (trying new dishes), working out, all things home decor and DIY home improvement. I also love changing up my look (my hair to be exact). I’m an intellectual property lawyer and STEM advocate for entrepreneurs, innovators and inventors. My entrepreneurial spirit as a business owner also lends itself to this area of my life, with ongoing opportunities to inspire children to pursue their own entrepreneurial dreams (win-win). I launched my online boutique business three years ago, as an accessory stylist, to help pay my way through law school — and eventually expanded the business to one-on-one personal styling for clients, photo shoots, product styling, brand marketing and content curation.
After my father passed away in 2017, I took a step back from my business to focus more on my own self-care through meditation and journaling … which ultimately heightened my interest in writing (creatively) and in blogging. While building my brand as a lifestyle blogger and through networking, I’ve met amazing and inspiring entrepreneurs, fellow fashionistas and trailblazing creatives. It is my hope that my blog offers inspiration to you, beyond fashion and style, while adding a little joy to your day when you visit. Thank you for stopping by!
