What do you like about being Latina?
Latina women have overcome many adversities and have faced a number of obstacles, but we've still managed to maintain a positive and vibrant outlook on life full of gratitude and resilience. That's what I love the most about being Latina.
What’s something about you that people would be surprised to know?
I think what most people would be surprised to learn about me is that I truly enjoy giving back to my community, I’m also passionate about a number of causes. I religiously volunteer every Thanksgiving with God’s Love We Deliver and The Birthday Party Project. I also am the founder of my own non-profit organization called the Everyday Counts Foundation. My family and I began the organization in honor of my mother who passed away from duodenal cancer in 2013. You can read more about our organization here.
Lastly, after catching up with an old friend who thought I was “bougie” simply based off my pictures I think people would be surprised to know that I can be very down to earth. I’ve worked very hard in my 22 years of life and every single “luxury” item I own I’ve worked hard for myself, or had a great “hook up” haha!
What are your favorite colors and outfits that make up most of your closet?
Black is definitely the signature color of New York, and as a true New Yorker my closet is filled with endless amounts of black colored clothing and accessories However, I also LOVE bright colors and prints I guess it’s the Caribbean girl in me. I love to color block and bold jewel tone colors and fun floral prints are my fave. Especially in the winter I like to mix textures and fabrics!
What trends are big in your city?
I live in the New York so as you could imagine trends are constantly changing, it’s so hard to keep up!! I really get a lot of inspiration from simply riding the subway and seeing who’s wearing what in what borough, I truly see some fabulous outfits on the train. I’m from the Bronx (the best borough in NY, not up for argument) haha! I think street style urban-wear is huge here also mixing luxury brands with more affordable brands.
What is your favorite brand/designer? What do you like about that brand?
Oscar de la Renta, Carolina Herrera, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Stella McCartney and Phillip Lim, are some of my favorite luxury designers and I hope to be able to afford them all one day! These brands are all classics in my book and they make staple pieces that can last a lifetime in your closet.
Which actresses or models do you believe have the best style?
I'm torn between Becky G and JLO! These two Latina beauties manage to be stylish, elegant, alluring and sexy. I also have a weak spot for Cardi B, I appreciate her risks on the red carpet and she manages to wear something we wouldn't expect. Keep us guessing!
Where do you see yourself in 5 years and what are your goals?
In five years I see myself having graduated with my Bachelor's degree and working in the fashion industry. Ideally as an Account Executive or for a magazine publication, I'd love for my blog to reach as many people as possible. I want to continue advocating for as many causes as possible and to overall wake up everyday as a happy individual loving what I do!
