A few months ago, we published our first bilingual Peek Inside post and today we’re proud to be able to do it again! Check out, in English AND Spanish, what the very talented Lorena has to say about her fashion-inspired notebooks.

I started writing poems when I was fourteen; now I’m almost twenty-four years old.


I love expressing my thoughts and emotions through words. I have used journals, agendas and calendars to write whatever I’m feeling that day. It’s like a way of keeping myself in control.


I use my journals to keep stuff that I like, such as beautiful fabrics. I also use them to sketch ideas for a new fashion design, to save lyrics of my favorite songs, to store an idea of what I want my next tattoo to look like or just anything artistic.


I love pocket journals because I like having one in my bag, just in case. In the future, I would love to have a bookshelf full of them and teach my son how having journals has always helped me.


Comencé a escribir poemas cuando tenía 14 años, ya tengo casi 24. Me encanta expresar mis pensamientos y emociones a través de las palabras.


He usado diarios, agendas o calendarios para escribir cualquier cosa que esté sintiendo ese día, es como una manera de mantenerme en control. Uso mis diarios para guardar cosas que me gustan, como hermosas telas, los uso para dibujar cualquier idea de un nuevo diseño (diseño de moda), para escribir la letra de mis canciones favoritas, para tener una idea de cómo quiero que se vea mi siguiente tatuaje o sólo cualquier cosa artística.


Me encantan los diarios de bolsillo porque así puedo traerlo en mi bolso, por si acaso. En un futuro me encantaría tener un librero lleno de ellos, y enseñarle a mi hijo cómo es que tener un diario siempre me ha ayudado.
