A Chat with Carolina Lifestyle’s Creative Director

PeopleCool

PeopleCool is one of the most special sections of this blog. It is a space to picture style. Most of the time I look for it on the streets, where I can find authentic people using fashion as a way to express their freedom. But there are other times when I feel that I need a deeper conversation. Sometimes words play a great complement to the image and explain us better the world we are living in. This is why PeopleCool is also a one of a kind opportunity to talk to people who have lives, jobs and thoughts that inspire me.

La Vie en Rose

MyStories

It has been 5 beautiful months with my baby girl. To tell you the truth, I had this feeling in my second pregnancy (as well as in the first one) that I was going to have a boy. You can always hear around that mum’s feelings are never wrong and that is why it was a real surprise when a baby girl was born.

My Thoughts on Guadeloupe

MyStories

I usually tend to fall in love with every place I visit, but at the same time, I have a critic eye on everything I see and not very often I would like to live in the countries or cities I stop over. But this feeling has radically changed since I arrived in Guadeloupe. I just had to leave the airport to be awakened from my lethargic state of mind after a 7 hour trip from Colombia. I was not expecting to feel the kind of infatuation you feel only when you meet a soulmate and every day I spend here it grows more and more.

Mixing It Up

MyStyle 

We have seen a shift from strict rules to a more relaxed approach when choosing colours, textures and prints. Mixing blue and black, red and pink or mixing an animal print with a Scottish kind of luck was only permitted if you were a clown in a circus show. But a change in our imagination took over those rules and let us in front of an infinitive path towards creativity.

Do You Take Care Of Your Friends?

MyStories

I feel nostalgic just to think about how many good friends have disappeared from my life. The circumstances in which we met have changed, I say to myself. But a bitter feeling comes to my heart while I realise that my excuse cannot justify the fact that I did nothing to stop our friendship from vanishing. I know I could have done more. I could have call, or visit, or write, but I didn’t. Life kept me busy and what is worse, life is still keeping me busy, or at least that is what I keep saying to my self.

Fashion is Everything but Frivolous

MyStyle

A significant number of people think that fashion is frivolous and unnecessary. Why would somebody spend money on a skirt or a pair of shoes when it is hard even to pay the rent? Why would somebody loose time  taking about fashion when there are more important things to worry about in life? Read More

MyStyle

The sensuality of the lace exceeds every expectation even before a dress is made. This sensuality comes from its transparent fabric and the dedication of the weaver in pursue a clean perfect product that radiates pure seduction.

Babies After 35 Years Old

MyStories

‘If you are not pregnant before 35 you will be in trouble’ This was the typical conversation in my 30’s with friends and family. It scared the hell out of me as I did not feel ready for a baby, much less I knew somebody who could be my partner in this great adventure.

An Italian Musician in Bondi

PeopleCool

Anyone who has been in Bondi knows him well. He is not famous but when he sings on the street everybody falls in love with his sweet Italian words. He is one of the most elegant people I usually see around here. The tie is not really a trend in Sydney’s relaxed environment, but he comes to work in his suit every single day. I admire his passion and discipline to do a job that comes only from his heart, that despite many admirers does not give him what he needs to survive, and yet he is happy, and yet he smiles, and yet he enjoys life.

Beauty Hurts!

MyStyle

Beauty hurts! I think there is not a single Colombian woman who hasn’t heard that at some point of her life. We like to be pretty, we put makeup almost everyday, we fix our hair, we adorn ourselves with accessories, we never go out without mascara, anywhere!
