Conversations with the Inspiring Alondra Martinez

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alondra Martinez.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Alondra. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
Thank you for having me! So, ever since I was in high school, I loved getting ready for the day. Ever since I was in high school, I loved getting ready for the day. Shopping was a fun activity because I loved finding nice items that were of great quality for an affordable price. I also enjoyed traveling to new places. A few years ago, I noticed that people were able to make a career out of it which is amazing! Since I was already into fashion and travel, I decided to document it and share it with others. Before, I only took a few photos while I was traveling and only took outfit photos every now and then. So, I started to put more effort into getting more photos and making them look good. Today, I’ve focused in on fashion and travel blogging and I have been able to work with some incredible brands. I’m really happy to be able to have these opportunities and it motivates me to continue!

Has it been a smooth road?
Overall, it has been pretty smooth but the biggest struggle comes from myself. At times, I have moments when the creative content I imagine doesn’t turn out as I envisioned it. However, other times I’m so excited about the content I created and I’m excited to work on more. My advice for those starting is to stay consistent and believe in yourself. If an idea doesn’t work out as expected, then try it from a different approach or adjust it to fit the situation. Creating something takes time and effort. Stay motivated and enjoy what you’re doing!

Please tell us more about what you do, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I am a fashion and travel blogger. I love exploring areas far and near. If I’m not traveling abroad, then I love being a tourist in my own area. I’m always exploring different places nearby and taking photos at different locations in my outfits. I plan my outfits based on the area I am visiting by coordinating colors and patterns. I love merging both but my main focus is fashion since I am not able to travel all the time. I also focus on the fact that fashion and travel is affordable and anyone is able to enjoy both without breaking the bank. I am proud to be able to share my experiences and help others learn how they can do it too. Being able to share how affordable things are is what sets me apart from others. I want to show others that visiting places such as Paris and Spain is not unattainable and that nice clothes can be less than $15!

Looking back on your childhood, what experiences do you feel played an important role in shaping the person you grew up to be?
Being involved in fashion and travel from a young age has helped me identify what I love. A few years ago, fashion bloggers and travel bloggers were not able to make a living from their hobby, however, now they can. It has opened opportunities for others and I’m glad to have found a niche I’m already interested in. Seeing other blogger’s stories has inspired me to pursue my own path in the industry.
