Hope you are all enjoying your Sunday! One of my favorite things to do on the weekends is hangout with my friends and boyfriend at the beach, which I did earlier and ended up having the best time:) the day was absolutely beautiful and I couldn’t have asked for better company. That said, I have to admit that Im also a book nerd so there’s nothing I love more than a good read. And lately I’ve been devouring Girl Boss by Nasty Gal’s fabulous founder Sophia Amoruso. Im sure many of you have read it by now but I just got around to buying it and Im loving every page! It is an easy and humorous read, perfect for a Sunday afternoon. She speaks openly about how she started on the business and how she managed to turn her little company into the empire it is today. Im hooked! Specially when I found out she was working at Academy of Art University in San Francisco the same year I was studying there, I mean how amazing would have been to know her then! But anyways I’ve been feeling so inspired by her story that I can’t wait to have my own line one day. I’ve surely dreamed about for too long now, hopefully 2016 will bring those dreams to a reality once and for all. For now Im still learning the art and I’ll keep working on my stuff so that I’ll soon be able to share it with you guys;)
I always love finding new books to read so if you have any to recommend please comment below and I’ll check them out!
Life in Southern California is like having a clean start every day. I have lived here for two years now and I am yet to feel tired and bored of this place (as it usually happens by now). With its sunny days, golden beaches and good vibes, SoCal is easy to love. Even during winter this place is just as sunny and beautiful as ever and right now I could not imagine living anywhere else. I have met wonderful people, have a lovely home, an amazing boyfriend that makes my days so much brighter and full of laughter and to top it off I have found true passion in my chosen career. Life is good. Sure everything has its ups and downs but its having the right attitude when you get out of bed that truly matters.
I believe that life should be enjoyed to the fullest each and everyday, that in our busy live’s we still take a moment to enjoy that first cup of coffee, greeting people on your way to work, to see the good side of a bad situation, I believe in taking a deep breath after a long day and dedicating a few minutes to yourself to enjoy a good book or treating yourself to a nice bath. All these things matter because they make life colorful and memorable and rather than wondering at the end of the week where your days went, you would reminisce on all the little things that made it bright. Reflecting over it this morning I was inspired by all the greens I could see through my balcony and it made me smile because only in California would you have a view that belongs more to summer than winter. So while going through my wardrobe I had a distinct desire for a fresh but confident style that would get me through my busy Monday, with that in mind I went for an olive green crop top, my favorite black jeans, cutout black sandals, a gold braided necklace, my Olivia & Joy handbag and a white scarf for those unexpected Santa Ana winds. A few minutes later I had the look I needed, I grabbed my sunnies and headed out the door to begin my day. Here are some photos from today…
Even though the start of the week is universally dreaded, I believe that the right style can give you the attitude you need to take on whatever challenge may cross your path. And it may sound silly to some but its the little things that encourage you through out the day, so find yours, whatever gives you that extra push and got do it regardless of what other may think;) I hope you enjoy the rest of your week and that you find some inspiration along the way.

A blog about Fashion, Travel and Everything that Inspires
My name is Erika, Im 26 years old from Puerto Vallarta, Mexico and I am a wanderer at heart. I currently live in Newport Beach where I continue to study Fashion Merchandising and get my daily dose of vitamin D by the beach. I grew up traveling the world with my family, from Dominican Republic to Brazil, the U. S., Argentina, you name it… we moved every year. As I got older that traveling bug remained with me therefore I’ve kept changing my address the same way. I’ll probably never know what its like to have a house that treasures all your childhood memories, but what I do have is a collection of different places around the world that when put together tell the story of who I am. And to me thats pretty exciting too. Today this is how I continue to live my life, whether its local or far Im always searching for new places and things that will keep me inspired. I’ve realized there’s hidden gems everywhere you go, maybe a new art exhibition or event, a cozy new bookstore, a new restaurant or a hidden beach somewhere waiting to be found, its the little things that make my day and I know Im not the only one. So this is how Wander With Love was created, as a way to share those little discoveries with anyone who enjoys exploring as much as I do. I encourage you to wander with love for Culture, Music, Places and People. I believe that you should wander with love for whats around you, to be inspired and inspiring.
I am very excited to begin this new project and hopefully I’ll get to meet great people along the way, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment or question below, I´d love to hear from you!
