What do you like about being Latina?
The passion that my culture has for everything in life...family, food, music (and right now the World Cup ha!) I grew up with my El Salvadorian grandmother who helped to raise me along with my mother. I have fond memories of being surrounded with love (and there was always delicious fresh pupusas on the table! ;)) and family. In my Latin family, my grandmother was everything. She was the center of our family and brought everyone together.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
Most people don't know that I am half Latina, and that my mother comes from a country in Central America! They think that since I have darker skin tone, that I am from a different ethnicity but I embrace both my El Salvadorian and African American cultures.
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
My favorite colors change from season to season. But what seems to stick are pastel blues and coral or peach tones. Right now, however, the color red is actually taking up the majority of my closet!
What trends are big in your city?
I live in a small desert city in Arizona and right now midi skirts and rompers are really in. There is a more laid-back look here which I love. It's also very hot where I live so you have to wear what makes you feel cool and often times that is a pair of high-waisted shorts!
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
My all-time favorite brand would have to be Chloé . I've always been a huge fan of their feminine, "Parisian-chic" styles. If a brand can make a beautiful white dress that you can wear to the market during the day and then out at night, then I'm sold! I think Chloé does that well. And their shoes are out of this world beautiful!
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I love model Bella Hadid's style. She is not afraid to show off her stunning figure and I like that she has a bit of an edgy look to her outfits. My next choice is not a model or actress but a blogger. I really love Julie Sariñana's style. She too is Latina and I've been a fan of her for years!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
I see myself continuing to blog and to do so full-time. My goal is hopefully work with a brand or fashion house in a dream collaboration!
