My name is Mariel Mendoza.. but the people closest to me refer to me as MM. I work, play, & live in New York City 🙂
Work. I graduated at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas in Business Marketing. Two weeks after graduation, I packed two suitcases and moved to Manhattan “just” for the summer and became a Social Media Activation Intern at Ogilvy & Mather. It’s been a few years since my first summer in the city and I’m now working in the Entertainment & Media Industry with Viacom Media Networks.
Play. Prior to living in NYC, I was living in Las Vegas. At that time, I was best known for promotional modeling & event hosting. I’ve had my share of fun attending industry parties & events but NYC is a whole other story. Shopping, restaurants, and bars are always just a few steps away. And there is always something happening the city!
Life. I am a twenty-something year old living in Downtown Manhattan where my two points for navigating the city are the One World Trade Center and the Empire State Building. I have two dogs whom I’m always Instagramming: Zoey the Yorkie and Guinness the Rottweiler/Husky. I’m addicted to taking fitness classes through ClassPass; my favorite include barre, yoga, pilates, and boxing!
I created this blog in late 2013 to serve as an insight to my fashion, beauty, foodie, and travel adventures while adjusting to life in the Big Apple!
