Hello! I'm Lourdes, a true blue California girl living in New York City.

I'm a freelance beauty, style, and culture writer, and have been honing my skincare obsession for as long as I can remember! Before I started writing full time, I worked as a nanny for fifteen years with kids of all ages, spanning several continents. I'd like to use this little corner of the internet to share my thoughts, advice and random musings on my passions, drawing from my own (often crazy) experiences.

If you'd like more information on my work, please check out my official website: LourdesAvilaUribe.com.

When not glued to my computer, I can be found wandering the East Village with my boyfriend, Theo, and our sweet pup, Maeby.
