It all started with a pile of Vogue España, summers on the Mediterranean and curiosity about everything.

From Texas and Barcelona to Kansas, Los Angeles, and DC, no matter where I am, what brings me the most joy is curiosity of everything around me. From finding a new spot for a cappuccino to a rabbit hole about a historic building I just walked by - life is just more fun when you're curious! 

This is a space dedicated to elevating your everyday. To find inspiration in day to day life...

The most impactful lesson I learned in my twenties was that it doesn't matter where you live or what job you have unless you're open to finding inspiration in your day to day life.

There are two ways I know how to express myself best - fashion and through writing. I started my first blog in 2009 (and YouTube channel but that is long gone for better or for worse). Over the past decade, the blog has seen various iterations.

I've landed fashion dream jobs including as an Assistant Buyer at Neiman Marcus and BergdorfGoodman.com or at LTK (formerly rewardStyle) seeing the iconic brand hit its first $1B transforming the creator economy first hand. 

Throughout this journey, I've lived in Los Angeles, Kansas City, Dallas, Fort Worth, and DC meeting incredible people and exploring new places that I've gotten to call home.

Despite these "big" things that I'm so proud of, what I want to bring to you through this blog are the little things that can make a stressful day feel a little lighter, a rabbit hole to go down and learn more about instead of doom scrolling, or a new easy recipe to try when you've found yourself so bored of the usual Uber Eats order...but only have 15 minutes to make it.

In a few words

Dog Mom. DC Living. Hermes Twilly in Hair. 

To me, summer is synonymous with months on the Mediterranean. Growing up, I spent my summers visiting my grandparents in Barcelona. This is the place where I fell in love with fashion and the rest was history.

In my twenties, between work and friends' weddings and bachelorette parties, it became harder to get back to the Barcelona home, but I learned that just because you can’t physically be there it doesn’t mean there isn’t a way to feel it in spirit. 

What I love about fashion is how it evolves with your mood and how it can really take you anywhere.

What I'm 


Outfits with pops of red. Long walks around The Capitol with the dogs. TCU football games. Taylor Swift since 2006. Baseball hats and bows. Banana bread. Popcorn snack mixes at the end of the day.

What I'm 


Patience and letting go of control. Bring the camera to everyday things. Spanish recipes from growing up.

What I'm 

not about

Playing small. Nuts of all kinds.
