Happy Friday friends! 

I'm so excited to be starting a new series on the blog today with you called Coffee with Adriana! This series is meant for you and I to chat and talk about any questions you might have for me. From Blogging, to Traveling, and Moving, to absolutely anything you'd like to know about me! Ask me anything.

I've had it on my mind for quite some time now to start a post like this one, but never quite had the time with my crazy schedule in New York. I'm so excited to be launching it from Austin now, and am really looking forward to discussing all sorts of fun things with you guys. 

The Concept:

Coffee with Adriana will go live every Friday, so please submit all questions to:

-my email: with subject Coffee with Adriana  or 
-send me a DM on Instagram referencing Coffee with Adriana 
-I will choose a few questions each week to answer for you, and will keep the ones I am not able to get to in rotation for the following week. 

So sit back, join me with a cup of coffee, and let's dive into this week's first set of questions!! 

How long have you been blogging?

I started blogging when I graduated from college in 2011. (6 Years!!) Leopard Martini began as a fun creative outlet, and I wanted to be able to incorporate my love for fashion & style into my life in some way. At the time, I had just started my first corporate job out of college and needed a way to keep my creative juices flowing. It wasn't until 2013 that I realized I could make a living from my blog, and began to collaborating regularly with brands and agencies that helped me launch my blog career. 

What did you go to school for?

I studied International Business with a minor in Mass Communication/Journalism at West Texas A&M University in Canyon, Texas. (GO BUFFS!) I have always loved traveling, and wanted to have a career in which I could travel often. I also have loved to write  since I was very little. I come from a family of writers and editors. Several of my cousins are writers, my brother is a writer, and my grandfather owned the main newspaper Prensa Libre in Guatemala City. * Little Known Fact * -  I actually started at WT as a Broadcasting major, but became camera shy so I quickly switched to business! 

What did you want to be when you grew up?

I always wanted to be an actress! I grew up watching Old Hollywood movies with my dad like Breakfast at Tiffany's, Gone With the Wind, and Casablanca to name a few. My icons quickly became actresses like Audrey Hepburn, Ava Gardner, Ingrid Bergman, and Elizabeth Taylor. So naturally, I felt as though that was the way to go! I was in theatre class all throughout High School, and absolutely loved being on the stage. I definitely toyed around with the idea of continuing it throughout college, but quickly saw that my love for style, and fashion outgrew anything I wanted to do within acting. 

What are your some of your Fall Must-Haves?

I always start a little list of Fall goodies that I want to add to my wardrobe before the season starts. High on that must-have list... a good Fall Floral piece, whether it's a top or a dress. I'm loving this Nordstrom Ruffle Bell Sleeve Blouse & this Mollie Tunic Dress from Anthropologie. I also love a great pair of Booties. Currently eyeing these and these. And, I never say no to Fall Cardigans & Sweaters. Loving this, this, and this
