Editor’s Letter

Hey Gorgeous, My name is Stephanie Marinello.

I strive to better myself everyday, and I do that by acquiring knowledge. I find knowledge in the research I do, the experiences I have, the things I read and the people I surround myself with. Knowledge is power, it goes beyond a simple education or a job—it becomes you, it influences the next decision you make, the next meal you reach out to feed your body, how good of a friend you are, how good of a family member you are and how good of a lover you are. If you care about anything, even yourself —educate yourself.

I want to share the new things I learn, the new things I see and experience in the City of Angels with you. Subscribe yourself and I promise I won’t send you emails with junk but only things that encourage me to be better then I was yesterday and even today. If we individually are better, then we contribute for a better tomorrow. Who knows maybe one of the emails might just strike your interest. Food for thought anyone?

Smart is Sexy, Let’s turn heads the right way!

  1. Good job, Stephanie! As a university professor, profoundly interested in knowledge, I find your blog’s ideas very intriguing. “Smart is sexy” is not about the instrumental and calculative function of knowledge, but it is about its attitudinal implications. It’s about how knowing triggers positive psychological states which make us feel good, rather than being simply aware of many things. We do need a blog like this in today’s stressful and hectic environment, where we seem to have forgotten the potential effects of knowledge! We need these positive messages that you transfer! Nice blend of contents and images. It’s a thoughtful, stimulating and entertaining blog. Thanks, Stephanie! I am going to enjoy reading your blog and I hope many others will!

  2. the most personally motivating, posts I have read in years!
    This blog is unique because it tries to encompass multiple areas of healthy living. Its different. That’s why it will succeed.

    Hey Stephanie,

    I just read some parts of your blog. Who are you? I don’t know you however you seem to be a very interesting person. Your photos are not only gorgeous…There’s a bunch of banal ones from “beautiful girls on FB” sometimes you want to be blind…well you make the difference cause there’s a spirit in your photos. We can feel it. (I would love to illustrate my point in French to be more accurate with words but I’m not a lazy dude Goddammit! )

    I like the way you talk about the desert. I guess you fit the spirit of the desert the way. You have a real inspired attitude on your photos.

    I don’t know if you heard about the desert in Morocco below Ourzazate, M’hamid…I’m writing the name of those magic places, we never know if you land there someday..I guess you will love the music of the silence in this desert.. Please try to land under the sunset, the mountains dance with the lights of the dusk..amazing colors!

    “What I’m reading in March” No way! Are u interested in Black Holes? I don’t want to play the dude who knows a lot of things cuz the more I learn the more I don’t know…paradoxical but true. I will never touch the Beauty of all this big symphony,I know, but I can feel it..

    After reading partially your blog, I can easy say, Yes! Definitely you are a smart person which makes you more sexy as hell and as a matter of fact…I’m not trying to pick you up by saying all this, I just mean it. Keep going, keep being inspired that way! Very good blog, inspiring.
    All my French and Universal respect…you rock mademoiselle Stephanie! -:)
