How did you begin your career?
I have always had a passion for taking photos and creating content. I did it as a hobby for a few years until I decided I needed to make it my career or find something else to get into as I was spending a lot of time on my content creation. I was able to take on social media as my main source of income in the past year.
How do you hope to inspire people through your social media platform? What can your followers expect to see when visiting your social media page(s)?
I would love to influence people with style and fashion. It’s my main goal for the new year.
What do you predict will be the biggest trends this winter?
Chunky sweaters and oversized coats. Sleek boots and UGGS. Pops of colour but nothing too bright, more softer colours.
What did you love most about your getaway to Cabo with Modeliste?
The trip was very relaxing, I really loved how chill everyone was. Cabo is stunning, the beach is breathtaking and I felt so lucky to be able to wake up by it everyday.
What was your favorite aspect of the Villa la Valencia resort?
The infinity pool.
Do you have any upcoming travel plans? If so, where?
I would love to go to Paris in the next few months. I usually go there in the summer when it’s hot so I wanted to try something different and see what it’s like during the fall/winter. It’s my favourite city.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
Extrovert. I’m a very social/chatty person.
Girls night in or Girls night out?
Both. I love cooking at home with my friends and watching horror movies. I also love dressing up to go out and taking cute photos of each other.
What’s your go-to airport look? Essentials to pack in a carry on?
Comfy outfit with UGGS,sneakers, sweatpants or yoga pants and a hoodie. I usually bring another jacket because the planes can get chilly. I bring vitamin c packets every time I travel. Sometimes a sheet face mask, sometimes an eye mask depending on the flight time. I can’t go anywhere without 2/3 lip balms. It’s a non negotiable.
What’s a typical work week like for you? Any advice you have for staying productive throughout the week?
My weeks always look different based on what I’m shooting and any appointments I have planned for that week. I need to have a schedule or I forget everything, it always helps me map out my week. I think that’s a very crucial part of making your own schedule. I try to get my work done during the week so I can have weekends off, that motivates me and keeps me productive because I usually need the two day reset before the next week ahead!
What’s your current skincare routine? Any products you’d recommend for our Modeliste readers?
I love anything from Caudalíe, the ingredients are so natural and nothing has been harsh on my sensitive skin. Paula’s choice & Mario Badescu drying lotion is always my solution if I’m having a breakout. I change my skincare products too often to say I have a routine by product, but I always make sure to tone after cleansing, use a serum based on how my skin feels and moisturize heavily. SPF daily too of course.
What’s something your followers would be surprised to know about you?
I used to work at a cafe, probably why I’m addicted to coffee and matcha lattes now.
Where do you gain inspiration for content? Any tips & tricks you’d like to share for those inspiring to have a career like your own?
Don’t force it, if it’s not a true passion you will lose interest quickly. Find your niche and be inspired by people within it, Pinterest is a great place to find visual inspiration for almost anything.
What makes you different from other content creators?
I love being original, shooting what I like and what I want to see visually.
What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
Find the beauty in little things and moments and be kind to yourself.
