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

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,

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.

“You can never be overdressed or overeducated.”
– Oscar Wilde

I find this quote fascinating because it basically encompasses what’s happening in my life right now.

I am passionate about aesthetics and creativity. All my life I’ve been inspired by art and beauty, which could come from a painting, a person, a place, or a garment. This drive led me to major in Marketing and pursue a series of jobs in both the creative and strategic side of marketing, the business arena dedicated to ideas, labels and value.

Even though I felt happy, I wanted more for my career.

I’m really excited to finally reveal this amazing photoshoot with the super talented Mexican photographer Joe Lozano.

The outfit, the location and of course Joe’s mad skills brought this entire photoshoot to life.
