Defensive Driving for Commercial Truck Drivers


You may have already heard of this term, but what is defensive driving?

ELLE México Diciembre

OK, I´ll try not to lose my shit. Getting your photographs published in ELLE Mexico happens every day, right? No big deal. But hell yeah it is! It doesn´t happen everyday, and now I feel like a 6-year-old kid on Christmas morning in 1988 unwrapping a Nintendo 8-bit entertainment system with two controllers and super Mario Bros cartridge.

I’d be browsing around, often in the photography section, looking for something new, and then suddenly she’d appear, as an old acquaintance running into to you on the street. I would always pick her up, leaf through her pages… Read more »

Levi´s® French Country Dress

For the longest time I’ve hated jeans. I could never find the perfect fit. Sometimes they were great on the waist but horrible on the thighs, and most of the time they were too short or too long, or just plain wrong. So I decided I will just wear dresses, and I did. But on my last trip I actually found two pairs of Levi´s that fit me perfectly, two pairs made in heaven. So… Read more »
