Made with Love is a digital diary that focuses on personal development with authenticity and a sense of humor. Too many of us coast through life no sense of purpose and fall into a daily rut we can’t seem to escape. We stop doing things we love, connecting with friends/family and investing in our physical and mental well-being. No matter what stage of your life you are in, it’s not too late to find the best version of yourself and live a fulfilling life. Follow me through my mistakes and experiences, and enjoy some interviews and resources. Hopefully, you will be entertained and challenged to discover what brings you success and happiness in your life along with me. This is a platform for self-expression to be shared, discussed and discovered. Whether you are interested in elevating your personal style, want to learn more about how design can better your environment, want to pick up awesome productivity tricks, or just need a virtual BFF to chat to (let’s connect on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest), you have come to the right place. Welcome! I am ridiculously excited to go on this journey with you, and it all begins here.
I am a designer with an editorial fashion background, and I work in architecture in New York City. I am a Swedish-born Brazilian (that’s a mouthful) and grew up traveling the world until I settled in the US in 2001 and made New York my home shortly thereafter. I am an early riser, a maker, an avid news reader, a problem solver, and a lifelong learner. I am a sarcastic optimist with a weakness for good conversation, breathtaking cityscapes, and handwritten notes. I’ll always choose coffee over tea, and I have been known to cross state lines in pursuit of a good latte. I never tasted a gelato flavor I didn’t like, love people almost as much as animals, and wonder if my future kids will know what polar bears are. On occasion, I do freelance design projects for companies and clients I genuinely adore. Proceeds from all projects I engage in go directly to charity organizations doing great work. To learn more about my services, inquire about collaborations or find out more about the causes I support, touch here. I look forward to hearing from you!
