The Man Behind La Dolce Vita

la dolce vita blog - man behind the blog

Ooh, I’m so excited for today’s Man Behind the Blog. I consider Paloma Contreras something of a blogging goddess and idol, and I know many of you do too. I mean, for one thing, La Dolce Vita was basically the first blog I ever read. And second, not only has Paloma been part of the blogging community for over six year and a half years (!!), she’s still producing wonderful, inspiring content that’s made her a permanent fixture in my RSS feeds. I can remember reading about her traveling adventures with her husband Fabian many, many moons ago, and was so pumped when he agreed to being featured here today. I think it’s really interesting to hear the perspective of a husband who — like their partner — has seen the blogging industry change so monumentally over the last few years. Here’s his take:

Your Name: Fabian Contreras
Your Day Job: Hospitality Sales Manager for Visual Comfort Lighting
Your Lady’s blog: La Dolce Vita
Favorite Websites:,,, and just because I love a good deal.

    Fabian – I have been in public with Paloma when she gets recognized by someone. It’s so funny!
