If you’ve been following the blog, you know I stopped posting for a while. Sometimes life demands you to focus on just one area so you don’t lose your mind haha, and that’s pretty much what happened. So, even though for the most part of last year I was not really in the right mood or mindset to pay attention to the blog, or to you my lovely readers, one of my 2017 resolutions -yes, I know it’s February already and it’s little late for new year resolutions but bare with me- one of my resolutions is to try to gain back some of the lost time, and post a few of the past photo shoots I didn’t get the opportunity to share with you last year (mixing it up with new shoots of course).

I know what you’re thinking –why would I want to see old outfits?– Well,

YOU KNOW ME AND YOU DON’T

If you read my last post, you know that for me 2016 was not far from transformational, a rather mandatory/not optional/intense transformation. My personal journey combined with a very demanding Full-Time MBA program basically changed me forever. And, that’s neither good or bad, it’s just what it is, and at this point I just have to embrace it.

The first time I read the phrase “You Know Me and You Don’t” in an ad for the new Chanel No. 5, I didn’t think a lot of it, just that Lagerfeld is a genius and that their advertising agency should be congratulated for a rather enchanting copy. But now, that phrase just took a whole new meaning.

THE AFTERMATH

// 2016, the most emotionally and mentally challenging year of my life. //

Nothing could’ve prepared me for what lied ahead at the beginning of 2016, I’m not only talking about my academic and professional life, it was my personal life what really got disrupted. Over this past year, my deepest passions, dreams and plans got shattered, re-shaped, or absolutely destroyed, and with them, a piece of me.

Some people say that real growth comes in the aftermath of highly stressful life events. You really can’t avoid it, it’s when you’re forced to face reality, when you’re left exposed, that you grow, become more complex, more real. I truly believe I’ve grown more in the past few months than what I’ve grown in my entire life. I learned tough life lessons, lessons that

BLEU & BLANC

I’m in love with this blouse, mainly because I’m obsessed with the print. You might think “Oh, this is just another floral”, but it’s not! The beauty of it is that is not just an overall print, the placement of every single detail – shapes and colors – was carefully designed in order to create a visual effect that basically frames the figure.

It’s so smart and at the same time so, so pretty.

This incredible print design is from BCBG Maz Azria’s ready-to-wear collection, however,

An event dedicated to two of my favorite things in the world: Music & Rosé

A thousand shades of pink covered Governor’s Island a couple of weeks ago for the -first time ever- Pinknic event! A two-day music festival were people could lay on the grass and chill, while they listened to music and drank delicious Rosé.

I had an amazing time, mainly because of the girls in my group, I love them!! They’re the coolest New Yorkers ever,

ROSES FOREV’A

This post is about flowers. I love flowers, it’s such a cliché I know, but I do love them. There’s something about a bouquet of roses that just makes me smile. Perhaps it’s because my dad used to bring my mom roses all the time, and she was always so happy about it.

This type of rose – blush, pale, dusty pink rose – is my favorite kind. I love roses because they’re beautiful, delicate, and a timeless symbol of love, but they’re also wild and free. Once you cut them their beauty becomes ephemeral, but that doesn’t make them less meaningful.
