It has been five years of braiding intentions almost on a daily basis and now in the spirit of another birthday that just flew away I want to share with you something very personal, that I know we all struggle with, because I know that the more specific the story is, the more universal it [...]
Dear you, If you are reading this, our journeys have finally collided. I am grateful for this. This is a magic canvas: it has given me courage through the last four years of my journey. Now, I want to share its magic with you. So, what is the headpiece about? This canvas has allowed me [...]
One of my earliest childhood memories is my five year old self coming back from school, and entering into my mothers dark room, at the end of a very long corridor. I would always open the door as quietly as I could. The heavy backed-out curtains were closed, and yet, some rays of light, painted [...]
We can't understand things as they are, we can only understand them as we are. And I'm complicated. I'm guessing you are as well, if you've made it this far.
On what a Latina living in the USA thinks about the family separations taking place in the border.
Head pieces are extremely powerful; when you enter a room wearing one, they become a way to identify you, and can even turn into the focus of unexpected conversation. Suzy Buckley, who has an extensive background in fashion, created Shapoh in 2014, as a solution the lack of beautiful fascinators in the United States bringing [...]
We all lie to our children. The lies we tell are just a way of lying to ourselves because the truth doesn’t really help... it doesn’t make anything easier.
I contain so many versions of myself... You'd be surprised. The version that the outside world gets of me depends on a mix of external triggers --the right energy, the right attitude, the car that let me, or din't let me pass on the highway, the mood in which my children are, the moon, if [...]
Anyone whose goal is 'something higher', must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No. Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It's the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us. It is the desire to fall, against which terrified, we defend ourselves. - Milan Kundera [...]
If I could choose a super-power, it would be being able to let go. I used to think that mind-reading was a better option, but what good would it bring me if I’m not able to let go of all the information I get? It’s actually counter-productive.
Posing. It's not a matter of vanity. It's not a matter of beauty. It has nothing to do with being superficial. It's simply that photography has become our canvas. We discover ourselves through the pictures we post. My canvas. I portray the subject I know best --which is obviously myself -- allowing the lense to [...]
I was discussing the current state of the world with a friend not long ago, and she said that the more she felt the chaos around us, the more she wanted to stay inside her bubble with her son, not caring for anything else. I used to be her, and my bubble was so very [...]
Dress by Pompi Garcia, pictures by Celia D. Luna. I've been struggling the last couple of days to use the right words to express how I feel. If you follow my stories through Instagram, you know what I mean. First it was Irma, who threatend to destroy Miami. She taught me what fear was. Just [...]
We read daily stories regarding natural disasters, war, or dictatorships and see them as something so distant. It's the first time I live a natural disaster of this kind, and I was pretty impressed by all the feelings and emotions I went through. Even with such little damage, I know I was changed for life [...]
I have to confess: I fill almost every short gap in my life with instagram. Elevators, street-lights, lonely lunches... You see? It has become a friend to me. I kept myself far away from it until I started working for Glamour. Previous to that I managed social media communities for brands, so obviously the last [...]
