Marcie Wahrer is a happily married wife and mom to three awesome kids who is living the sweet life in her hometown of Las Vegas, Nevada. She passed on both a career in business and in the cosmetology field to become a lifestyle blogger with Obviously MARvelous, which has been her passion since June 2010. Her weaknesses include clearance racks, intense cardio workouts, her husband's kitchen masterpieces and the Dallas Cowboys!
Marcie is an active member of our community, having recently worked on our Gillette campaign.
$PullQuote$We recently sat down to find out more about Marcie and here is what we found out, in her own words.
My niche is… Lifestyle (a fancy way to say everything).
I write when… All is quiet in my house. When my husband is at work and the kids are in school so it is just me, my dog and my thoughts.
How has blogging changed my life: Blogging has allowed me to provide extra income for my family while doing something I absolutely love. To know that I assist in the connection that develops between brands and families is truly special to me.
A brand I have loved working with: I have worked with so many wonderful brands over the last five years! I always appreciate those that take the time to learn a little about me or actually read over our policies prior to reaching out.
When did I start blogging: June 11, 2010.
How I see the future of blogging/social media: I see blogging and social media channels becoming more of the advertising norm while areas like radio and print phase out a bit.
Where I work: I made my home at the counter area of our kitchen for years but recently created an actual work space for myself complete with writing desk, accent chair and privacy!
I am connected…. Constantly but like to think I still know how to unplug and live in the moment.
When I’m stressed, I….. Seek out wine and a conversation with my sister.
My favorite gadget is…. My smartphone, plain and simple.
My favorite travel destination is…. An entire travel bucket list. Next up, a two week tour of Europe in the next
My favorite clothing brand is… Anything that is comfortable and rocks my world!
I do all my shopping…. During a good sale or via a clearance rack. This girl likes a bargain.
My favorite TV shows: Are always changing. Lately I have been into Secrets and Lies, Married at First Sight, and The Goldbergs but also enjoy classics like Scandal and Survivor. I watch a ton of TV in case that wasn't obvious.
My favorite movie: Step Brothers and Dirty Dancing. I refuse to choose just one.
Coffee or tea: Coffee fo' life!
I love…. My family, beautiful sunsets and good food.
I dream about…. Watching my children grow to be happy, successful, well rounded adults, traveling the world and my Dallas Cowboys winning the Super Bowl.
Where you can find my writing: I am currently a contributor for the Novica blog.
What else I do: I currently serve as a board member on my community's association and can often be found helping around my children's school. I look forward to exploring new volunteer opportunities soon as well.
