Hi! Welcome to Beauté Simple! I am Myla Lopez, a former advertising (via BBDO, J. Walter Thompson and Young and Rubicam) and marketing exec (Nabisco/Kraft Foods). My post-corporate life has taken me to the world of blogging and lifestyle photography. I started this blog in May 2013 to cover topics on simple beauty and living but it has now expanded to include all things that I find aesthetically pleasing in various aspects of my life — an art exhibit, a play, or a restaurant. I also talk about simple daily pleasures that I encounter in my everyday life as a mother of two girls (Chiara, my older one, and Ines) as well as my travels and adventures. I try to capture these moments mostly through my photography, often seen through the lens of a mother.
One of my great passions is travel to foreign countries. I have visited up to 19 countries and hope to visit many more. I also love books, food, interiors and eclectic art. Having lived in Asia (the Philippines) and the United States (Philadelphia, NYC and Northern New Jersey) for many years, I find beauty from the mundane to the exotic. Being married to a Frenchman and spending summers in our house in Normandy, France with my family also play a significant role in my aesthetics and sensibilities.
I hope that this blog will inspire you, entertain you and encourage you to find simple beauty and pleasures in your everyday life. I cannot wait hear from you and look forward to hearing your comments!
I am open to writing and photography projects and collaborations. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
