Hi, tell us a little something about your project

The last couple of years people messaged me about my photographs, about my colors and how I get those tones. For that reason I created a small package of my personal presets that everyone can apply to their pictures. I’m so grateful for the the kind messages I’ve received after my presets release. In fact, there will be a new pack coming in the next weeks.

What is your biggest inspiration in life?

My mother is my biggest inspiration in life. She is so smart and always finds the positive in every situation.

Your instagram is full of beautiful photos. Is it hard to create your content?

It’s hard to be a content creator. We have to travel all the time to get our Instagram page updated with amazing content. Also, playing around different angles, spots… it takes time to get the perfect photo. We are patient… wait for the right time, perfect light and try to be alone or wait for people that were in the middle of the picture. But at the end of the day the effort involved has deserved all time spent on it.

How would you describe yourself? In just one sentence.

I am very motivated and love doing what I do.

So you love fashion very much. But what does fashion mean to you?

Fashion is color, space, symmetry, art. I think my vision about fashion is a bit different than others due to my profession. I studied during 6 years to get my Bachelor’s Degree in Architecture and it provided me a unique perspective of what fashion means. Does it make sense?

It does! What current fashion trends are your favourite?

I love to mix different patterns.

What are your three must-have pieces of clothes?

My Tess Chloe bag, snake booties and skinny jeans.

Do you have any advice for new Instagrammers? Any tips?

Find your way. Why should someone follow you on Instagram? If you can truly answer this, you will be shocked at the direction it takes your account. ”Great artists only show great work.”

You have nearly 500k followers on Instagram. What do you think people should do so that their profiles are more successful?

I always say the same thing. CONTENT is the key, try to post frequently at the best times and show your followers who you are. Do what you want to do so your followers will trust every word you say. Be yourself! Always!

Which programs do you use for editing your pictures for Instagram?

I edit all my pictures on Lightroom with my own custom presets! I take the editing process seriously.

Do you have any goals you want reach in your life as an influencer?

I have so many…My personal goal is to be happy, healthy and always do my best.

Can you tell us a bit more about your goals as an influencer? Maybe something that you’re planning to do with your Instagram profile or other projects.

Be confident and do what I love. Follow that feeling deep in my gut and follow it with a great zest for life. Be creative. Be knowledgeable. Focus on how I can influence others in positive way.

You’ve visited quite a few places. Which countries or cities do you love the most and why?

I absolutely love Paris! Every scene or spot is pure magic. There are a lot of places to take photos and visit. So many things to do. I would recommend to stay there at least 5 days! In winter, it is very cold there but if you have the chance to go in spring or autumn, it is the best!

What do you pack with you when you’re going abroad? What are your essentials?

I always travel with a small trolley. When my friend look at me the say….REALLY? but honestly if you prepare your luggage days before your flight you can really think about it. My essentials? Louis (my photographer and husband), camera, iPad and the trolley with a “bunch” of outfits.

You look really great! What do you do to keep in shape?

That’s the greatest question! My followers ask me the same! I try to go to the gym 4 times a week but I really love to eat. For me one of the best things in the world is the culinary world! I love to cook too (obviously Mediterranean kitchen). You can find some of my recipes on my highlight stories.

Can you tell us more about your job? You’ve studied Architecture and then?

I studied architecture for 6 years of my life. It is an amazing profession and I love the opportunity to build buildings with my own designs. I’m currently working as an influencer full time but I always like to combine both!

Where do you come from and what would you recommend to visit there?

I’m from Spain. So many things to do and visit. The greatest thing about Spain is our gastronomy. People visit Spain and only try “tapas” but it is not just this. Our gastronomy is one of the best in the world. You can have an awesome lunch or dinner in every city of Spain. Also the weather is nice all year long so you can always find a great place to visit depending on your needs.

One more question: What do you think about our project Influencedot?

I really like the idea of getting to know influencers life. How we live and work. It makes a better idea of who we are. It is really interesting in my opinion.
