Last year, I managed to visit Arte San Ramón; an art gallery located in the center of the city. I've known this gallery for years, my mom used to work there so I remembered how the place looked like before its renovation. But when I came back, I was mesmerized.

It's the clean lines, the natural light that enters through the ceilings, the simplicity and also the colors and brightness of the marvelous art pieces that make Arte San Ramón such a beautiful spot in the middle of all the chaos. It's an amazing place to find some inspiration. Well, I'll let these photos speak for themselves.

Here's my friend Mayte Esteban. A very talented interior designer whose work I admire.

Last month I got the chance to take pictures of her and some of the products she designed for an exhibition/pop-up shop called Cosecha. It's easy to fall in love with the things she designs, they're simple, yet functional and beautiful. I mean, just look at that lamp!!

It was so cool to be immersed into her world for a while. She's such an interesting person.

P.S.: Don't forget to check her Tumblr and Instagram.

It's no secret that I love a well-designed product. So, when I discovered Harry's, my heart stopped. 

These beautiful shaving products are created through an exacting process in partnership with talented craftsmen from all over the world. The blades are engineered in Germany at their own factory, which has been manufacturing some of the world’s finest blades for almost 100 years.

Beautiful, right? I'm in love with the simplicity and details . The handles are designed to be ergonomic, with clean lines that emphasize their utility. And the variety of colors is just perfect.

Well; I have to say, when I tried Harry's for the first time, everything changed. My morning routine was instantly elevated. There's an unbeatable softness in the razor that won't damage skin at all. Perfect for someone with sensitive skin, like me. I really, really encourage you to try Harry's out, you won't regret it.

Now I can say... Morning routine? Elevated.

Gift wrapping with Carlo / PATIOS

December 15, 2014

This past weekend, I was working on a super cool project with my friends Carlo, Emmanuell and Nelia. The idea was to create Christmas-inspired still life shots for Carlo and Nelia's new book called "PATIOS".

PATIOS is Nelia's second book, in co-edition with Carlo. The book explores all the hidden and forgotten backyards in the beautiful Colonial City of Santo Domingo. The photographers (Amadeo Anselin, Nemanja Brankovic, Ricardo Briones and Carlo Reyes) captured such amazing places that I could have never imagined they existed.

For me, this book is on top of my Christmas list. It's such a great source of inspiration. And honestly, after looking at it, I just want to go and explore all these breathtaking places in my beautiful city.

Oh, and one of the most beautiful things about this? The sales of the book go to the fundation "Abriendo Camino", which works on benefit of the children and teenagers living in Villa Agricola. So yeah guys, it's all for a good cause!
