oh, hey.

My name is Marie Rose Carlson, and I like to think I’m a bad ass boss babe.

MRC: Kicking Ass & Forgetting Names

I started this site as a blog back in college, as a way to document my academic and professional progress. Since then, it’s morphed into everything from a journal to a portfolio, and even to an actual job.

In a way, this site has grown to become an online extension of me. I consider myself to be both a social media maven as well as a lifestyle blogger, but when I use the term “lifestyle” I don’t lump myself in with your typical bloggers on Instagram. I’m referring to my lifestyle; Sure, I can be basic sometimes (what girl isn’t) but more than anything, I like to keep it real. I’m edgy, blunt, a little nerdy, laid back, and extremely driven.

Currently, I work full-time at a publishing startup called Wide Open Media Group as a Social Media Manager and I absolutely love it.

I also have a couple of side-projects I like to do on my own time. Previously, it was managing this site as a blog, but I’ve since decided to try something new: Swipe ‘n’ the City so stay tuned for more on that!


And on that note, I’ll leave you to browse.
