Welcome.  My name is Mariah and Quite Continental is a lifestyle blog I wrote from 2010 to 2015, where, from time to time, I indulged my varied interests in cocktails, travel, fashion, art, design, culture and etc.  This blog is a place for my own opinions and sponsored posts are clearly designated.

I was born in San Jose, California, and currently reside in Los Angeles, recently returned after a thirteen year-long stint in New York City.

Thank you for stopping by.

    Ran across your interview on styleslikeu on neckties and thought it was absolutely lovely. Such a wonderful look done very well. Best of wishes. RJ

  • I Just found your blog the other day and it is amazing. After reading your about page I wanted to say that you have expressed these sentiments wonderfully in your blog.

    I also love old Life magazines. I wish I could afford to buy them in bulk. I recently posted some pictures of the Buckleys from their “American Family” features. Again, great blog. I am looking forward to reading through it all.

  • I feel the same way. My role model is a combo of Myrna Loy and Mame.

    hello from indonesia.
    i found your blogs yesterday and i love what your charm school idea. i was thinking that i would refer it to make a check-list-project from your day 1 to day 28 (or 29) advise.
    thanks for inspiring me.

  • I feel as if it’s quite silly that I’m just now digging into your blog. I’ve been admiring you via Instagram for so long. You now have a permanent link on my blog – I think you’re the cat’s pajamas! I’m also a hopeless nostalgist so I fear I may lose my weekend strolling through your archives.


  • Mariah, Yours is one of the most charming, interesting blog concepts I have ever seen, and I applaud your panache. Thank you for turning my day around … so looking forward to more. All the best, Terri
