Hello! I'm Lourdes, a California girl living in the Upper West Side of New York City.

I'm a writer working for a variety of online publications contributing original essays and news pieces on beauty, fashion, television, women's issues, politics, books, and more. Over the years, my work has covered culture, style, feminism, identity, home decor, design, health, wellness, childcare, and their various intersections. If you'd like more information on my writing, please check out my official website, here:
