We had the good fortune of connecting with Alondra Martinez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alondra, what do you think makes you most happy? Why?
Traveling makes me happy! I enjoy experiencing new cultures and being in a new environment. The ability to travel the world gives me a sense of freedom and appreciation. I enjoy living in the moment as well as capturing moments that will last forever. I love sharing my adventures with others and sharing how affordable and attainable it can be. I look forward to traveling again!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I love fashion and traveling and thankfully I have been able to share content about both. I enjoy sharing affordable yet stylish outfits as well as affordable and magnificent vacations. I am always excited to hear feedback from others about how they take inspiration from my content and how it motivates them. It all started thanks to my friends for encouraging me to share my outfits and travel pictures. I would have never thought people would actually be interested. I’ve learned that I need to stop doubting myself and simply enjoy what I do. I want others to know that I’m an open book and I’m always here to help, motivate, and inspire others!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If my best friend was visiting, one day I would take them to Santa Monica and we would grab lunch at a cute Instagram worthy spot. Then we would head over the the pier and grab some ice cream and we would watch the sunset at the beach. Another day I would take them to Palm Springs and we would go shopping in the downtown area and take pictures in front of a nice house with the view of the palm trees. Another day I would check to see what concerts are happening in the area and go to one. Thankfully, the area I live has so many places near by that we can easily drive to and explore. Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I want to thank my aunt Vanessa and my uncle Matt for bringing me along their adventures! They are always on the go and every time I would visit them we would have a summer filled with activities. Thanks to them my love for traveling grew and I began traveling on my own time to places I would have never imagined.
