A little background:

I was born and raised in Colombia, and have been a Dallas resident for the past 16 years. I'm a Texan with a Latina's heart. I love Dallas! 

I graduated from Dallas Baptist University where I earned a Bachelor in Business and an MBA in Finance. I'm married to the love of my life and business parter. We are a family of 3. The third family member is Tiffany, a spoiled yorkie that rules the house.

My background is in finance, but 8 years ago I decided to do real estate full-time after venturing with my husband in the world of real estate investing. I love business but more importantly, helping people. I enjoy guiding my clients through the purchase or sale of one of their biggest investments: their home.

Beauty regimens and tips?

My 2 favorite beauty regimes are a great workout followed by relaxing wet sauna session.

Exercise not only makes one look good but feel good too.

With all honesty, I didn't used to exercise regularly. I get bored walking on a treadmill. I need action! Last year I joined Equinox in Highland Park and absolutely love their group classes. After a workout, I go to the wet sauna and relax for a few minutes. It makes my skin glow.  I love it!

I'm a coconut oil addict. I put it on my face and neck at night and try as much as I can to drink water. Especially, as soon as I wake up.

What are your favorite local DFW beauty brands and/or beauty related services?

For a great hair and makeup I love Natalia Issa's hair and makeup. She comes to my place, fixes my hair and does AMAZING work. I just close my eyes and let her do wonders. She always makes me look gorgeous!

Must-have home decor accessories?

Fresh flowers for sure. My home is filed with flowers. They are everywhere; in my bathroom, living room, by my bed, seriously, everywhere.

Orchids, hydrangeas and Tulips are my favorite.

For accessories, I love different stores in the Design District. I always find great things there. The last accessory I found there was a beautiful white coral that I ended up placing in my living room next to a white orchid.

Favorite DFW restaurant of the moment? Patio or Bar?

Oh that's a tough one. I'm a foodie. I love Oak and FT33, both in the Design District. FT33 is the best place for a healthy meal with fresh seasonal ingredients and lots of flavor.

Their food is not just delicious, it's a work of art.

If you could have dinner with any local DFW woman, who would it be?

I would love to have dinner with Laura Bush. She is a very intelligent and classy woman who is making a great difference in many people's lives.

I could ask her so many questions but just letting her speak and share her wisdom would be absolutely fine.

Any last words, pieces of wisdom for our DFW beauties?
