I am... vegetarian, art lover, who wants…a vacation on Barcelona & more shoes. I have... a colorful life, a creative mind, a big loving family. I keep...post it notes, in my purse, plenty of tea & 70% dark chocolate in my house. I wish I could... learn how to play my guitar in two days. I hate... lies, fear, envy, disrespect, cruelty, insensitivity, justifications. I love... my kids laughter. I need... more sleep. I enjoy... reading old books. I rather... use a mechanical pencil than a pen. My favorite author... is Gabriel Garcia Marquez. I can't stand... lack of depth, lack of good morals and lack of good family values. I think... 90% of what Tv offers is poison for the brain. I watch... history channel, some food network shows, top chef, Intervention, some hgtv, bizarre foods, project runway. I've always... been a faithfull follower of foreign & independent movies. I read... the new york times every morning while eating my usual breakfast: kashi heart to heart cereal with fresh blackberries & raspberries. I always use... palmers cocoa butter body oil & been using it for more than 10 years. I never... go to bed with make up on my face. A perfect evening... would be a great dinner and reading under the candlelight after lighting up some patchouli or frankincense-myrrh Soll's incense with some flamenco playing on the background. I self taught myself... how to sew and tailor clothes after observing attentively my mom's seamstress work when I was a girl. I can spend... the same amount of time searching and absorbing information about fashion and shoes than for philosophy, history, culture, spirituality or architecture. I'm... a graphic artist but I'm more passionate about layering images in oils on a canvas. I can... sew, cook & bake (a lot and really good), design clothing & interiors, sculpt, paint, crochet, built furniture (❤power tools), dance, do hair & makeup, infrared photography (❤ the dark room), etc... I could live... in Costa Rica or Cataluña. I could survive... on olives, agedashi-tofu, berries, dark chocolate & tea. I have... a special debility for rings. I don't... consider shoes part of the accessories category, they are special art objects with a category of their own ☺. I have no tolerance.... for radio hosts, for that reason I only listen to my ipod or my own cd compilations. My new year's resolutions... are based on concepts, not actions. The two short common questions I get the most... ① Are you brazilian? ② Where does you last name comes from? Answers: ① No; born & raised in Puerto Rico. ② Cataluña, Spain. I can share... the websites I enjoy besides the ones I have on my star list: zen habits, synthesis, bakerella, tofufortwo, the cool hunter, /food, tastespotting, contemporist, fabrikproject, daphne, absolutearts, artcritical. I will... tell you more another day.
Almost two decades ago I decided to change my diet and convert to vegetarian and later on to vegan. Getting educated on vegetarianism and ...
