I Style My (friend): Astrid R.

Hey guys! After not being here last month, here comes a new entry of "I style my: _____", in which I style someone, do a photo-shoot and share the results. I've been helping my friends get dressed for a while now and I think it's a good idea to showcase my styling skills; besides, it's nice to show different faces around here; I apologize for not having a post like this in May but I only want to give you the best, you know? And getting the best material takes time. Astrid is a newcomer on this blog but has been more than a friend for a very long time. Hope you like the photos we did together!

// ¡Hola amigos! Tras no haber estado presente el mes pasado, aquí viene una nueva entrada de  "I style my _____", donde visto a alguien, tomamos fotos y comparto los resultados. He ayudado a mis amigos a vestirse desde hace un rato y creo que es buena idea mostrar mis habilidades para eso; además, está padre mostrar caras distintas por aquí; me disculpo por no haber hecho uno de estos posts en mayo pero realmente quiero mostrarles sólo lo mejor. Y conseguir el mejor material toma tiempo. Astrid es nueva en este blog pero ha sido más que una amiga por mucho tiempo. ¡Espero que les gusten las fotos que hicimos juntos!

Astrid Rendon 5 Once upon a time, I was in middle school and my sister was attending Uni; we studied the same career and everything. She used to bring this girl home, her partner-in-crime and best friend and, truly, one of the cleverest and funniest people I've ever met. That's Astrid, a friend of my sister's who, sort of, became one more big sister for me. We spent a lot of time hanging out during those weeks of thesis my sister had and, let me tell you, I'll always treasure those days, days when I needed to laugh and smile; those two made that happen for me.

Years later, Astrid became a world-trotter, traveling through the globe, learning from all the different cultures, changing lives and expanding her own. Nowadays, you can feel the creative juices flowing through this advertising-copywriter turned into photographer and motivational speaker. Since I started my blog, As has been cheering on me; collaborating with her was amazing and so much fun. This is the first of many posts featuring my borrowed big sis; stay tuned, we'll be doing great things together.

You can follow Astrid's life on her Instagram (:

// Alguna vez fui un chavito de secundaria mientras mi hermana iba a la universidad; estudiamos la misma carrera y todo. Ella solía traer a una amiga a la casa, su cómplice y mejor amiga y, en serio, una de las personas más astutas y graciosas que he conocido. Ella es Astrid, una amiga de mi hermana que, en cierta forma, se volvió como una hermana grande más para mí. Pasamos mucho tiempo juntos durante esas semanas de tesis que mi hermana tenía y, les cuento, siempre atesoraré esos días, días donde necesitaba reír y sonreír; entre las dos hacían que eso sucediera para mí.

Años después, Astrid se convirtió en una trota mundos, viajando por el planeta, aprendiendo de las diferentes culturas, cambiando vidas y expandiendo la suya. En estos días, juro que puedes sentir el jugo creativo fluyendo en esta copywriter publicitaria convertida en fotógrafa y oradora motivaciones. Desde que comencé mi blog, As me ha echado porras; colaborar con ella fue una cosa bien padre y muy divertida. Éste es el primero de varios posts donde aparecerá mi hermana grande postiza; manténganse atentos, haremos muchas cosas padres juntos.

Pueden seguir la vida de Astrid en su Instagram (:
