Hi all! My name’s Manuela, I’m 26 y/o, originally born in Colombia but raised in Spain; yes, as the saying goes, cute but psycho haha.. I’m still finding my purpose in life so for the moment I will continue being obsessed with fashion and discovering places I’ve never been to!
Favorite beaches in the world?
Uff this is a hard one! I was recently in Tulum for a couple of days and I fell in love with its boho style heavenly beaches but looking back in to my memories nothing beats the turquoise blue water and white sand from White beach in Boracay, it really took my breath away!
But for those who are on my side of the world - Playa de los Alemanes has a piece of my heart, its mountains surrounding its clear water really made it hard for me to go back home, must place to visit if you are ever in the South of Spain.
Standard beach drink?
I love my mojitos of course but oh nothing beats a good margarita!
What would you like to share about your own body confidence journey?
Not going to lie but us girls always struggle with our looks, either we are too big or we are too small, we want to look like the insta model who’s not even real herself, bla bla bla.. There’s times where I love myself more than ever and then there’s times where I don’t, but it is all in me to be able to change that. As I get older I start to realise that I will never be as young as I am today so therefore I should make the best out of it. I love fashion so I love dressing up and choosing different outfits for every ocassion, and so what if one day I show a bit more than usual? It’s our body and we should praise it and love it as a temple.
What is your favorite part of your body and why?
I like my legs the most. I’m a small girl so therefore I don’t have long model legs, but I like it, they are the strongest part of my body and they walk me everywhere.
Who in the world inspires you to love yourself?
My small gang of friends are amazing and always push me to be the best version of myself, woman who support woman on a daily base I believe is one of the healthiest therapies. Also having my precious mother reminding me about it everyday of my life is a good way to not forget to love myself.
All time favorite life motto?
I believe that whatever’s meant to be will always be and that the universe has a plan for one and each of us. Don’t overthink, over stress, over work or over do too much of anything, love yourself and live happily because one day we will all be where we are meant to be.
