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!
