Style Swap with Ana

One of my favourite things about blogging is all the amazing people I get to know from around the world. A lot of you bloggers have become really good friends and that's what I'm loving. One such blogger is Ana from Coffee Break. Her blog is filled with some great travel posts, that show you what a gorgeous place Mexico is, and she has a lovely fashion sense.

1) Tell me a bit about yourself:

I'm 28, I'm Mexican. I've been married for 1 year. I love to travel and I work for a French company in Mexico but I don't speak French, only Spanish, English and a little bit of German because I lived in Vienna for 1 year. My hubby is also Mexican and I live in a very beautiful city called Guadalajara in the state of Jalisco where Tequila comes from.

2) Why did you decide to start a blog?
Many times I wanted to express myself on the web, but I was a little bit scared about reactions and privacy, then when I used to search some things on google it took me to many blogs, then I found personal blogs who talked about fashion, photography, travel and in that instant I wanted to share what I like, what I admire, my country and my thoughts. I started my blog and then I found a great community of really nice and creative people from all over the world, and I'm very glad I found them because we have many things in common that we can share. And many of the blogs I read have been very helpful in many different ways and I will always be grateful to them.

3) How would you define your personal style?
In my heart I'm a rocker but on the outside I consider my style elegant and classic, I must confess I don't take risks to dress; I think a nice white shirt, with black pants, a nice jacket and cool accesories will make a perfect outfit always. But I'm also fan of the mix and match tendency!

4) What are your hobbies/how do you like to relax?
I love to read fashion blogs, interior design blogs, travel blogs!!! Any blog that's interesting... my hobbies are to re-decorate my home with an
ything that comes up to my mind, I like going to museums and having long walks in the city.

5) My favourite feature of yours is Wedding Mondays; why did you start this feature and where do you get inspiration for it?

When I got married... I searched the internet for wedding ideas but I didn't find as many as I wanted, then when I started the blog I got to know many other blogs about weddings, so the idea of Wedding Monday is to show you the beautiful things I found on the web, blogs or real life and maybe one day you can use that idea for your own wedding or another important event.

6) Whats something unique to you?
I understand something about myself that is unique? mmm... jaja I'm very organized with my life, work and money. I will do to you any favor you ask me, any time not expecting if you some day will do me a favor too. Before I knew my husband I wanted to go to parts of the world who were in war conflict or so to help as volunteer.

7) Who is your biggest role model/inspiration?
I will say Queen Rania of Jordania she is so inteligent, pretty, and fights for what she believes. And in fashion I admire the style of Olivia Palermo very much.

8) If someone had one weekend to spend in Mexico, where would you reccommend them to go?
OMG this is so difficult!! I will say a place where you can have forest, beach and nice cities, that will be the state of Michoacán. Friday on a beautiful beach in the Pacific ocean, saturday morning on the lovely National park of Uruapan, saturday evening on a typical town full of color like Patzcuaro and on Sunday a walk in the streets of Morelia, an amazing colonial city. But it depends on what you are looking for, the south of Mexico is full with pyramids and history. Mexico City is great for museums and night life. And Guadalajara is where all the Mexican things that are known in the world are from like tequila or Mariachi. So if anyone is planning a trip to Mexico, ask me and I will be pleased to tell you where to go.

P.S. I'm glad to say that I have been keeping in touch with Hannah from London--Rose these last few weeks. She really is a nice person. For all you British bloggers out there, Hannah wants to arrange a fun meet up in London, in December. If you are interested, check out her blog and let her know you're interested. She's also put up a poll about what to do here.

P.P.S. We've briefly mentioned the Timeless 50 in the past. There are lots of categories and you get to vote for the timeless piece in each one. There are loads of prizes to be won if you vote and the poll closes on the 15th of November.
