ABOUT ME


The growing Latina population living in the US is taking on more roles and making more decisions than ever before, yet how do they glide through each role easily?

Vinna builds the platform for these busy Latina women by providing clear, easy to follow everyday tips and inspiration, so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and their families.

 Simply done. The Art of Doing in Life.

El Arte de hacer el todo los días.

 The Modern Latina woman need not feel as though she has to abandon traditions and culture to be modern just as well as she does not have to abandon her dreams to be traditional.

We aim to Motivate, Educate, and Inspire by understanding busy lifestyles and the importance of our Hispanic culture that is embedded strongly in our everyday lives.

Who am I?

-A lifetime of moving has taught me the importance of relationships, which has translated to inevitably learning and enjoying entertaining. I use a cup of travels, a pinch of memories, and tablespoons of love in the things I create.-

Vinna was born in Caracas, Venezuela to a large, loving, creative, and entrepreneurial family. At an early age she and her immediate family moved to sunny California where she did her schooling. She traveled often to Venezuela and around the world, nurturing her love, passion and curiosity for food, travel, culture and its people. Upon finishing high school in Los Angeles Vinna’s love affair with the culinary world began when she moved to Paris where she attended La Sorbonne. From France she moved to Italy; living in Florence, Sorrento, Naples and Rome. After 2 years in Europe Vinna moved to Miami where she received degrees in Finance and International Business from FIU and simultaneously worked in the Financial world as a banker. Once receiving her degrees she moved to NYC succeeding in injecting fuel into her innate entrepreneurial spirit where she began to structure this company. Currently Vinna resides in the bicultural city of Miami where it has become clear to her that there is a lack of representation of Latinas for the Lifestyle Hispanic marketplace, molding her vision.

    Vinna, I love your page and I love how you think! I can relate to you in so many ways. I have always been an old soul, trying to blend the best of the 50′s lifestyle with today’s world. I believe that changing gender roles has a very big impact in higher divorce rates. Balance life is a key.
    Wish you the best!! xoxo

After years of trying to find where I stand as a young lady in a modern world, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’ve been subconsciously going back to basics. After the feminist revolution, the everyday know how and the art as well as truth to wives tales have been almost entirely thrown out. As an ambitious woman I started very young in the financial world and realized that although I was living in a modern lifestyle, I was missing out on the people and things that really mattered.
