Mode Around the Globe: Pau Dictado




How did you begin your career? 
I’m not actually sure how I started my career. Like many others, I started using social media as a creative outlet. After a few years of creating content as a hobby, slowly but surely, I started partnering with brands I’ve only dreamed of working with! It has been such an amazing ride, and I’m so so grateful.

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 to inspire people creatively through my content and daily life. I want to be able to inspire others to see the beauty in all things. I love sharing a little part of myself through my outfits, hairstyles, travels and everything in between!

What was your favorite part about your stay at Casa Velas?
My favorite part of our stay was our spacious rooms, delicious food and amazing hospitality. It was the most wonderful stay and I would really love to go back soon!

Do you have any upcoming travel plans? If so, where?

I’m planning to go to New York, London and Paris in the next few months—I’m so excited!

Are you an introvert or an extrovert?
I’m a little bit of both! It depends on my mood. I love surrounding myself with friends and meeting new people, but I also value my alone time and can be shy at times.

What’s your go-to airport look? Essentials to pack in a carry on? 
Staying comfy is a must. I love being in a matching sweat set or knitwear. My carry-on always has my makeup, toiletries, jewelry and designer pieces if I do bring any.

Girls night in or Girls night out? 
I love both! As long as I’m with my girls, it’s always gonna be a good time.

What’s a typical work week like for you? Any advice you have for staying productive throughout the week?
There’s really no typical schedule. Everyday is so different and that’s what makes it fun, and sometimes challenging. This is why planning is key! Depending on what I have scheduled for the week, I stay productive by making sure I plan my days ahead.

What’s a typical work week like for you? Any advice you have for staying productive throughout the week?

I’d like to keep my skincare routine simple. I find that my skin thrives by using less products, so I only use about 3-4 products max! My top products are a good cleanser, hydrating serum and moisturizer and spot treatment for acne when needed.

What’s something your followers would be surprised to know about you?
One thing a lot of people don’t know about me is that I was born in the Philippines! I grew up in Manila and moved to the US back in 2008. Since then, I’ve visited twice and miss it more and more as I get older. It’s my goal to visit at least once a year!

What would you like to say to your fans/followers?
Don’t take life too seriously! Life’s too short and too precious. Have fun and live your best life.
