Meet Alex Carreno of

Alexandra Carreno is the founder and editor of the lifestyle and personal style blog Adored by Alex, where she shares her fashion, beauty and personal inspirations and adorations. Born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona, Alex currently resides in Houston, Texas. Adored by Alex began in 2011 after a few important people in Alex's life suggested she create a means to write about the things she loves — and share them with others. When she’s not blogging, Alex enjoys traveling, exploring her new city and spending time with family and friends. See more at:
