Back in London and lucky to be surrounded by @theflowerbx everywhere I go: from @annabelsmayfair and @marksclubmayfair to @georgemayfair and #harrysbar to @Farfetch (where I met with the new BFC Chairman @snphair!). But best of all, I had their perfect arrangements at home when I met @lyst’s Chris Morton and then Kirsten Lock from @ordreofficial.
Reflecting, thinking or just day-dreaming 😉 as long as I don’t fall down the stairs with those platforms I am grateful 🙏🏻😂... sometimes women, we just need to challenge our balance, I guess 🤔...
My #WomanCrushWednesday this week goes to Stephanie Phair, @Farfetch’s chief strategy officer. @snphair has had a long career in fashion, starting in Vogue’s communications department in New York. In 2008 she joined Net-a-Porter’s executive board, later becoming president of The Outnet, which she turned into a success story all on its own. Stephanie was named the chairman of the @BritishFashionCouncil last week and I could not think of anyone better to replace Natalie Massenet and partner with Caroline Rush and her team. I am sure her role will be a successful one - there is nothing she does halfway, so pay close attention as I am sure this will be an exciting journey! Stephanie I Love you and can’t wait to see you shine 🌈🌈💛#WCW
Happy Mother’s Day, mom. You’ve been more than a mother to me, you’ve been my best friend, my teacher, my global travel companion to the most remote places in the world to meditate and support local creative artisans and artists, and you always encouraged dad and all of us to have an open mind towards everything. But most importantly, you both always taught us kids about the studies of mind and body, sociology and anthropology, and how important these disciplines were to understand a country and its people. You thought your Me to be free above all and thought us to challenge our limitations, see the gifts and the bright side of all situations and to challenge our minds, bodies, and intellect. Above all, you were unique and did not care what people thought of you. I know I told you this millions of times, but I miss telling you this now, especially today, but although you are next to me and cannot read this, I want to tell you I always thought I had the coolest mom in the world because you were different than all the mothers at school and all the society wives. You defied all those roles and my dad just adored that amazing uniqueness in you and he still does for you and with you everyday. Happy Mother’s Day to every woman in the world! May you embrace your uniqueness, self love, worth and freedom today. #lovebeingawoman
Finally! After 2 years of working on this, we formally signed and closed the deal on a May 11 at 11 . I can’t wait to reveal what my co-founder valeria @waterthruskin and I are creating for the wellbeing of millennials, centennials and maybe some non-normal people like me who were born in the wrong century ....all I can tell you is that this smart cookie is unstoppable! And I am too old to keep up with her so I need lots of @crukafe coffee every time I meet her 😳😳🤯🤯☕☕😍🙈🌈 #1111 #wellbeing #sustainablelifestyle

I have always loved #ZsaZsaGabor’s witty quotes, but this is one is my favorite - especially coming from a Latin country where we are so exposed to male chauvinist comments. I never understood women who are jealous of other women - I always thought: “who has time for this shit, I am fighting to have gender equality, how can we ever get there if we don’t empower each other?! #quoteoftheday
Throwback to #2014 - one of those years that changed me forever! Thank you @monicakalpakian for saving soooo many of those moments in your camera and being there to laugh ‘til we cry and lose our balance, but more importantly for holding my hand and being there for me whenever I needed you during my fearless journey as every single wall in my heart was melting away forever, embracing vulnerability and really feeling the fear - something which prior I was incapable to feel, among many other “weaknesses”. But all this has made me stronger than ever and even more fearless!!! I love you like a sister ♥️ #bestfriendgoals #embracevulnerability
Yup, that’s my reaction to the new features I’m discovering and hearing sounds I’ve never been able to hear before with @soniccloudapp! (It’s very hard to repeat sounds you can’t hear first.) Find out more about the team behind SonicCloud who created this revolutionary app to enable hearing-impaired people to have a richer auditory life on carmenbusquets.com/portfolio. 🙏🏼#hearingloss #hearingimpairment #dyslexia
Very excited that there is just over a month until @ominasummit and that my #WCW @gisele is one of our keynote speakers! Gisele has been an advocate of conservation, protecting the environment and the eco-friendly lifestyle way before it became trendy and we are looking forward to hearing her insights in San Jose in June!
It was such an honor to co-chair this magical evening. Thank you to everyone who came to support @glasswingi last week in New York. Over 300 supportes attended the Gala, raising a record-breaking $675,000 to continue transforming communities across Latin American and the Caribbean. The programs have already impacted 850,000 people and are now expanding to the US. This total does not include the $100K I donated to launch the program in the US in mid-February as we already successfully started integrating the program in the States in March - that is how effective and efficient @celidesola is. #GlasswingGala #Glasswing #ThisIsOurCommunity @celidesola @janapasquel @eglantinazingg @gabrielahearst @donnakaranthewoman @therealadamsays @ninarunsdorfjewelry @awilkiswilson @rp_norton @auroralopezmejia @hassanpierre @mchnyc @austinhearst @angelicafuentes63 @eurotextil_nyc @munnugempalace song by #juanluisguerra #bachatarosa
Working on a Sunday with @donnakaranthewoman at her studio doesn’t feel like work. Just take a look at this sacred and beautiful space and its terrace, and you'll understand why and how she managed to create this magical place out of @urbanzen that takes you away from NYC's noisy and chaotic days. Thanks to Donna, my Sunday work meeting turned out to be a recharging zen experience instead of the draining one I typically have in the Big Apple. 🙏🏼We even meditated together. I hope she manages to realize her dream thanks to her vision and the many places she created like this. I feel that sooner rather than later, the world needs more creative and generous people like her, as well as working environments like @urbanzen where people with her experience can mentor artisans and creative minds from all over the world to be sustainable on their own. Donna has also created mini 'mind-and-body TED talks' in her spaces - stay tuned and find out more about them! 🧘🏻♀️🌎🌳
