Mariel writes, dreams and eats to her heart's content. Her typical day consists of either or all of the following: food, literature, music, events, traffic, day trips, dogs, magazines, shoots, papers, and/or love (not the romantic kind though). She lives by the saying, "Everything happens for a reason," dances everywhere, everyday like there's no tomorrow, and follows not the rules, but her happiness. Instagram @marielabanes
