Last night we surely enjoyed a wonderful night filled with fashion, friends and excellent people.  We gathered at Green Grass Boutique for their annual Art & Accessories Bazaar and gawked at some truly excellent works of art!

Firstly, image and style consultant, Marisol Gomez, welcomed us.  She offered her services and gave us a color analysis on what palettes complement our skin types.  What a revelation!! I was surprised to learn that the colors that best suit me are burnt colors, especially coral.  Well I better do some smart shopping now!!

Later, we walked around and discovered amazing jewelry and art displayed all around the boutique.  The fantastic art exposition was from artists Isa Zapata, Cristina Boter, Jamie Gershen and Rosaura Perez.  The jewelry designers were Citrine by the Stones, Mishky, Crish, Silvana Danies, Equinoccio + Equinoccio, Lola James, Strada di Gioia, Jenny Salinas, Astrid Poletti and Katch.

With mother’s day just around the corner, why don’t check out this amazing Bazaar and maybe find that special something for the main woman in your life!

A Glimpse of Our Unsuccessful Photoshoot

As Mandrake PR is in the process of creating its own website, the Mandrake team was required to get professional but yet very artistic photos in order to properly complement the website.  We requested the services of the talented and young photographer, Tawfick De la Espriella for this special task.  And let me say, being a model is not as easy as it seems!  We envy those professional models that with a flick of a switch or with a snap of their fingers are picture perfect!! On the contrary, we mortals are succumbed to the trials and tribulations of standing straight while making sure we are aware of every single part of our body as we try to emit a sexy but yet demure image to the camera.

Giselle Bundchen, Kate Moss and Linda Evangelista, we applaud you for showing us how to work it, but for now, we are just going to leave the modeling sessions for the professionals.

Mandrake PR was asked to represent a very talented and young designer. Warning: his style is very different; if you are in the search accessories with a showstopper attitude, Marl Vilaro accessories is just right for you.  Craftsmanship with passion.  Allured in a second. For Marl Vilaro, a young designer from Barranquilla, Colombia, inspiration comes out of nowhere, as a celestial touch from the unknown.  It feeds his creativity and maneuvers his hands and fingers into one of kind items that speak volumes of his outlook on life.  So let him bewitch you.

Leyla De La Espriella is the bubbly personality missing in the Mandrake Public Relations equation.  Her free-spirit character and business-like personality have reached the perfect nirvana as she has effectively balanced fun and business together.

Leyla De La Espriella

After graduating with a Management and International Business degree, she successfully found her niche as she managed national and local companies for the last couple of years.

Now, Leyla is able to mix two of her favorite subjects: fashion and business, and with her ability to whip out business strategies while sharing a contagious smile, Leyla is the business wiz that makes Mandrake Public Relations such a business success.  Just one word of advice, don’t let that killer smile and quiet facade fool you!

Now the pointing finger lands on the second team member, Paola De Castro, the creative talent behind Mandrake Public Relations. A fashion publicist for the past couple of years, she lives and breathes for fashion. Nothing comes short as to describe how fascinated she gets when setting her eyes on a new and original fashion talent.  She is always on the prowl for that special “Je ne sais quoi”.

Paola De Castro

Paola has worked non-stop with a diverse array of fashion PR agencies and is happy to say that she has cultivated a descent set of tools that makes her a valuable asset to Mandrake PR.  Give her a theme and let the magic begin as she creatively sets out to write about it, even those subjects that lack the wow factor.

There is no time or space for her when she is set out to reach a PR goal and the beauty of it is that she actually loves what she does, as no challenge is too big or too small for her.  Paola thrives at challenging endeavors as it fuels and nourishes her creative engine to excel in anything she sets her mind to.  Now, wouldn’t any new potential client want to take advantage of that?

As you may know: Mandrake Public Relations is made up of three members: Jenny Lewis, Paola De Castro and Leyla De La Espriella.  Here is a brief intro of each of its members. Lets start with Jenny Lewis.

Jenny Lewis in one word, Spicy!! Yes, that is the best way to describe this Pandora Box, who you will never know what you are going to find inside. Bohemian, intellectual and spiritual individual with an opinionated mind!

Jenny Lewis

Jenny has always been involved in the fashion industry as she opened her own fashion empire for the past couple of years and has succeeded immensely in it.  Being a trendsetter as she has brought her image and fashion sense to her hometown where she established herself in Colombia as an entrepreneur by creating Mellow Yellow Productions.

In addition to her love of fashion, she has cultivated a no nonsense sales experience that brings the valuable side of business negotiator to Mandrake PR and thanks to her the word “no” doesn’t exist in our dictionary.

Power Girls with fancy handbags and a bitchy attitude.  Well, not really that bitchy. At Mandrake Public Relations we have a saying: “We Work Hard, but we Play Harder”. Well, in reality, we love what we do but we haven’t gotten to the playing part as of yet. It will come in due time.

I have been asked to write a little more about the birth of Mandrake and its members and, that is precisely what I intent to do in the next couple of weeks.  So here goes a proper introduction of what Mandrake is all about and what its three Power Girls have to say about it.

The A Team

Mandrake is made up of three empowered girls, Paola De Castro, Jenny Lewis and Leyla de la Espriella.  When we use the word empowered, we really mean it.  I will get into it on the next blog.  Tata for now.
