Who am I?
My name is Maribel but lots of people call me Mary. I´m a twenty-something girl, born and raised in México. I´m currently studying Marketing and Communication and dreaming of travelling around the world. Life lover, dreamer and hopeless romantic. I love writing, listening music (specially new music), watching movies, going out with my friends, travelling and taking photos.
I was studying abroad in Prague, Czech Republic and did a super fun and successful 1 month trip backpacking Europe.
I live one day at a time and love to get into little, unexpected, everyday adventures. I try not to worry about the future but don’t let destiny take control of my life, I believe that if it’s meant to be it´ll be and my favorite word is serendipity. I´m a little clumsy, I love boxing and pilates, I have lots of food allergies and bad knees but that doesn’t stop me from walking a lot and enjoying delicious food. I love food almost as much as I love my mom, beer is my go to drink no matter what. I truly believe that self love and acceptance is one of the most important things you need in life; there’s no such thing as “your other half” but yes that person who complements you, you’re a whole person. I believe that there’s beauty in every single thing, that there´s always room for improvement and learning, and that one must be true to oneself. I love México with all my heart.
How did I begin blogging?
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember, blogging just came as a natural follow-up to my urge of sharing my thoughts to the world and as a creative outlet. I think I’ve lost count of the blogs that I’ve had, but no matter how many effort and time I put into it at some point my inspiration ceased and so an other blog died. For a while I stopped blogging and I really missed it so I started thinking about all the reasons why nothing ever worked in the past and I came to the conclusion that it was because I boxed myself to write a certain kind of blog. So here it is: my new blog, about everything going on in my life, some random thoughts and things I like. Nothing specific, just a little bit of everything.
It’s Not Vanity is a space for me to share my thoughts, little adventures, tips, projects, music, photos and whatever I find interesting… It´s like my diary for all the world to see.
Why “It’s Not Vanity”?
Well it´s a phrase I use a lot. I believe that in order to be ok with everything and everyone around you, you must invest time in yourself and really love who you are. Some people call it vanity but it´s not, it´s self love.
