¡Hola!

My name is María Elena Rodríguez and I started ambinity back in 2013. I'm a pretty normal, twenty-something with introverted and extroverted traits, born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico, currently living in Miami, Florida. When I'm not creating content for this blog, recording an episode for my podcast, Un aguacate a la vez, or reading about the latest wellness trends, I work as a Digital Content Strategist at a marketing agency.

I have always loved magazines and writing, so this blog is my natural way of documenting my creative journey towards finding bliss in life's simplest pleasures while fulfilling my dream of publishing my own work. This is why I write about everything that I'm truly passionate about, such as WellnessCruelty-Free Beauty, Career AdviceTraveling and even some Decor and Fashion when I feel like it. 

What is “ambinity”?

"Ambinity" is the combination of the words ambition and vanity, two things that I try to embrace everyday in real life and on this lifestyle blog. Because I firmly believe that if you work hard for your money, you should treat yourself. Amirite? By the way, yes, I invented the word "ambinity" and yes, I used to cringe when I said it out loud. Now I'm proud AF of the community I've created! 

I'm so glad you stopped by! Hope you say hi. :) 

With love, 

María Elena
