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 hope I can inspire people to authentically express themselves and to unapologetically follow their passions. My followers can expect to see me experimenting with outfits, how I look and how I live!
What do you predict will be the biggest trends this fall/winter?
I think we are going to see a lot more layering with lace and sheerness playing a big role. Also the color red, from red hair to head to toe looks, red nails, etc.
Which Agua Bendita swimsuit was your favorite to wear in Tulum?
The Lolita, I absolutely love the print and all the embroidery in it.
What did you love the most about your experience staying at Mereva Tulum?
Waking up to the ocean everyday and the food, the food at Mereva was incredible.
What was the highlight of your trip to Tulum with Agua Bendita and Modeliste?
Meeting and spending time with all the girls. Left the trip with a bunch of new friends!
Any upcoming travel plans you’re looking forward to?
Yes! I just moved to New York and soon will be going to Paris.
Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I’m an extroverted introvert. I recharge by being having me time but can also be very social.
What’s your go-to airport look? Essentials to pack in a carry-on?
I try to wear all black because I am a very messy person, and comfy shoes! As for my carry on, I always pack my iPad mini with pre-downloaded movies, a sweatshirt and extra headphones in case one of them dies.
Girls night in or Girls night out?
Girls night in, I call it therapy!
What’s a typical work week like for you? Any advice for staying productive throughout the week?
I really do not have a set schedule, every week is completely different. The one way I stay productive is by writing down every Monday my major goals for the week and put things down in a calendar. Also, having a morning routine helps keep me accountable, as the way you start your day tends to dictate the tone for the rest of the day.
What’s your go-to makeup routine? Any products you’d recommend for our Modeliste readers?
A lot of Tatcha products! Specially their new overnight repair cream, just feels very luxurious. Applying it every night it’s very ritualistic.
What’s something your followers would be surprised to know about you?
I think my followers would be surprised to know I flew a plane before! It was just for five minutes, but I don’t think a lot of people know about it.
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?
Usually when I can’t sleep at night I have a lot of creative thoughts and I just write them down. I think inspiration comes from what I see on social media and in real life. My brain collects all this data and comes up with ideas. As for those inspiring to become a content creator, my best tip is to not overthink it! Post what feels easy and authentic to you. Create your own niche!
What makes you different from other content creators?
My content is a direct reflection of me, so by being authentic I am my own category. I always believed in not fitting into a niche, but being the niche.
What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
Just thank you for supporting me, I get to live my dream life because of you!
