The Man Behind The Sparkle

Actual email I sent to Erin from The Sparkle when I got her boyfriend Roberto’s questionnaire back: “I’m a married woman so please don’t take this the wrong way — your bf is a looker!!” True story (although maybe I just have a type). But what makes Roberto even more endearing is that he’s totally hilarious and insightful. I loved his interview, and found myself smiling the whole way through. He’s the kind of guy you’d love to chat with at a party, simply because he seems interesting, fun, and — if his support for the lovely Erin is any indication — a real sweetheart. He makes a great other half to Erin, whose blog I’ve come to love for beauty tips, yummy recipes, and everyday inspiration. Read on to learn more about Roberto’s thoughts on the blog world!
