After many conversations with my friend Alessa about this new blog, she not only encouraged me to get out of my comfort zone, but also pulled me out of ‘excuses to how busy I was’ (even though I’m not doing so much at the moment with the obvious circumstances, hmmm thanks Covid 19). I finally took the time to write my post to tell you a little bit more about who I am.
My name is Ana Bedoya, I was born in Colombia, raised in a culture of music, lots of holidays and family. We have a holiday pretty much every month and sometimes we don’t even know what holiday it is that we’re celebrating, lol. Christmas for us is a celebration that starts on December 1st and lasts until January. It is a time where everything gets transformed with lights and lots of happiness all around!
When I was 16 years old I moved to New York with my family and you can just imagine how my world changed. I lived there for 10 years. where I pretty much learned to be strong and independent. I also learned about food, oh God! so many more flavors than what I was used to. I learned about design, art and culture, and my love to travel began. Every year I try to go somewhere new, eat something different and experience all these fascinating places around the world. I am also a Gemini so creativity plays a big role in my life, I am constantly thinking of ideas, plans, possible business opportunities, hobbies, you name it! And of course this is how I became friends with Alessa ; ) having conversations and sharing all these creative ideas all the time.
I developed a swimsuit line, although I learned about business a lot, I also lost my interest for the industry, with how fast fashion is changing and the dynamic of this business. Majority of people do not really appreciate quality and all the hard work that goes into it. So here I am looking for new ideas and trying to find a path that gives freedom to my life and a lot of self gratitude.
I hope to bring the blog some information and tips of my new hobbies – lifestyle, floral and interior design. Also day to day inspirations, and ideas. We will all learn and get inspired together!
Stay tuned ; )
