It’s #WorldAfroDay and the 1st day of #HispanicHeritageMonth. This is what life was like growing up Latina 🇵🇷with my type of hair: – becoming a pro at doing everything (laundry, the compra, sleep) with rolos or a doobie in your hair – having your mom/tia/wela make the best deep conditioning concoctions from everything in the kitchen – dedicating 3hrs to getting your scalp burned/singed at the salon but also knowing that’s where you can buy cds/dvds, do taxes, play numbers etc – being told you and your sis got your “bad” hair from your (father/mother)’s side of the family – having men praise 🙄 your “spanish” “good hair” over other women with coarse hair, bc dudes are dumb and don’t realize we in there getting chemical relaxers/straightened too – having your heritage questioned while traveling bc you and your hair don’t look like a whitewashed telenovela – having women ask you “what are you going to do with that hair” when discussing upcoming special occasions – not knowing what your actual hair texture is because it’s always gelled down in a moño (bun) or in a Dominican blowout – maturing beyond a colonized mindset and realizing the deeply rooted anti blackness that comes with anti-natural hair culture, and ultimately embracing your curls, coils, and fro as you see fit however and whenever you see fit 🙌🏾🙌🏿🙌🏽 Photo: a library in Old Quebec City (Canada) . . . #afrolatina #naturalhairstyle #afroboricua #blacklatina #naturalhairinspiration #librariesofinstagram #latinxmentalhealth #growinguplatino #oldquebec #oldquebeccity #quebeccanada #librarylife

Comfort makes for complicity. The only way to grow is by challenging yourself. During these unprecedented time we need to reinvent ourselves more than ever. For the longest time, I have been putting off doing new things, just because I was getting by. It was not until I saw so many of my friends and favorite instagram celebs reinventing their business and investing in themselves that I finally realized how important is to keep pushing yourself. You can only get what you work towards. If you are comfortable where you are in life I challenge you to look for a new opportunity. That will help you grow as a human and depending on the task, professionally as well. Being uncomfortable doesn't mean not being grateful nor happy, it is the opposite. Because you are happy and thankful for what you have and the place you are, you keep striving to find yourself in a even better place. What is something you would like to do but you haven't dared to do yet? ⁠ #sintraportugal #sintralovers #sintra_alive #Portugal #Sintra #Cascais #beautifuldestinations #europe #europetravel #portugalvisuals #cabodaroca #portugal🇵🇹 #portugalovers #portugal_lovers #portugal_photos #portugal_em_fotos #portugal_passion⁠ #portugal_places #portugallovers⁠ #portugaltravel #portugaligers #portugalalive #portugal_a_gramas #portugalemperspectiva #portugal_gems #portugalguide #portugalagramas⁠ ⁠

“Negro incense burner in Peru” (1868) • "From Recuerdos del Peru, vol.1, by Courret Hermanos Fotogs. The book is part of a two volume souvenir photo album containing “several views of Lima, Arequipa, Callao, Arica, La Paz, and portraits of muleteers, bullfighters, Andean Indian peoples, and a gaucho.” No further context is given. • • “This albumin print of a young AfroPeruvian woman is in the Library of Congress and was taken in front of a painted landscape in a photo studio in Lima, Peru. The woman’s name was unfortunately not identified but her occupation as an “Incense Burner” was provided. • • Slavery was legalized in Peru in 1524, finally abolished in 1854, and there was a population in the latter year that numbered some 17,000 persons. There had been far greater numbers. An earlier census in 1791 enumerated 40,000 enslaved Africans along with 41,398 “mulattos and free blacks” and another census in 1821 recorded similar numbers. • • Africans arrived along with the Spanish in Peru as early as 1529 and the indigenous Inca were enslaved as a result of Conquest in 1536. The Inca population collapsed during the first 50 years of colonial rule. Of the 6 million recorded in 1525 there was a mere 1.5 million remaining in 1571. As a result, African labor largely built the country during its first 300 years as a colony and slaves were brought to Peru in increasing numbers. By 1640 there were some 20,000 Africans in Lima alone and they accounted for one-half of the city’s population. (They were later supplanted by Chinese [1847-1874] and Japanese indentured laborers [1899-1923] in the 19th & 20th centuries). • • Africans were not only enslaved by Hacienda (plantation) owners, but also by members of the middle class. A free black population developed in Lima that was largely urbane and recent scholarship on letters of manumission indicates that many purchased their own freedom. Consequently, the woman in the photograph solitarily stands as a free woman of color.” • • SOURCES: Stan Solomillo, @afrxdiasporaphd • #peruvianblackheritagemonth #afroperu #afroperuvian #blacklatinxhistory #blacklatinxs #latinxs #afrolatinxs #africandiaspora #afrolatinotravel

Has your style changed with your travels? ​ Mine sure has! From working in the fashion industry in Los Angeles to backpacking around the world, I sure LOST a lot of my style on my long term travels! That’s part of the reason I started Travel Fashion Girl 8 years ago! I wanted to figure out how to dress with clothing that was practical, functional, AND stylish, too. But then 3 things threw a wrench in my process: 🔹My lifestyle was nomadic, which meant I had limited access to clothing. ​ 🔹I entered my 30s and all of the sudden the fashion lines became oddly and unreasonably blurred. ​ 🔹I “moved” to a small town in England in and my casual LA style quickly received a shock to its system. ​How would I be able to transition my style from the girl I was in my 20s to the woman I wanted to be in my 30s? It was a true struggle for many years. In the end, it only took me 5 years, a blog, and a styling course at the London College of Fashion to get me on the right track 🤓 You see, it was nearly impossible to create the perfect capsule wardrobe for travel, because I was so unsure of my own personal style. Now I focus on owning only the most perfect clothing, the things that light me up, and the things that I won’t save for “one day” because every day is worth making myself feel special (I'm even trying as I stay at home more often than not).​ ​ The past couple of years have been incredibly empowering. I’ve stopped concerning myself with what others think I SHOULD wear vs the things I WANT to wear. I've also learned to focus on things that suit my lifestyle, not someone else's. Now I feel I've found ways to translate what I used to wear into a more elevated version that still makes me feel like "me".​ ​ Ultimately, when you feel good, you look good! And by embracing my personal style preferences and understanding the things that make me happy I feel more confident with the clothing I choose, which allows me to feel empowered to walk around the world with confidence. Style is a such a personal journey. I hope that by offering you a little insight into my own frustrations and (lengthy) fashion evolution, it can help you find happiness in your own closet, too 💜

Hola, it's me! 🙂It has been a while since I last posted, but it's Latinx Heritage Month! And of course, we should be celebrating ourselves all year long. A couple of short facts about me as a Deaf Latina: 🇲🇽 My first language is Spanish, and I recently just learned that I had a Spanish accent when speaking English during my first couple of years of life; although Spanish was later somewhat neglected (or unable to improve on it) because I was put into the path to focus on English and American Sign Language (ASL) as a Deaf child. I felt that I wasn't Latina enough to my family & others due to not being fluent in Spanish – but what they don't realize that there are challenges as a Deaf child with a lack of accessibility. 🇲🇽 Selena Quintanilla was my Latinx role model growing up, but I had NO Deaf Latinx role model growing up. I wish I had Latinx role models growing up in the USA. Things are improving a little bit but we still need more d i v e r s e Latinx representations in the Deaf communities. 🇲🇽 Due to a lack of Deaf Latinx role models growing up, I was taught to focus on my Deaf identity first, as if I shouldn't be focusing on my Mexican identity. I also felt like I had to pick one culture: my Mexican culture or Deaf culture for several reasons. 🇲🇽 Although there are several Mexican cultural beliefs, customs, and mannerisms that are unconsciously become part of me, there is a lot of information that I didn't have access to growing up. Being the only Deaf child who knows American Sign Language (ASL), I just didn't have the visual access to learn more about my culture. I had to learn it on my own through my Latinx friends, books, media, and most recently, meeting the Deaf community during my trip to Mexico last autumn. Occasionally, I had the chance to ask questions with a family member of mine. 🇲🇽 The only Latin countries that I've traveled to are Mexico, Costa Rica, and Nicaragua. It only makes me prouder to be a Latina AND Deaf person. And of course, I'll be traveling to more different Latin countries in the future! 😉 What's your story? 💙

I’m the descendant of Charrúas (Indigenous people from the Southern Cone) and also the colonizers that slaughtered them. One of my ancestors is a celebrated general that defended Uruguay from the Portuguese. My grandparents served their community as a nurse and a postman. My father was a professional basketball player and was then exiled. He fled Uruguay to escape certain death during Uruguay’s bloody military rule after being tortured. I never knew there was a month to celebrate Latinx culture in the US. Brands didn’t honor it and schools didn’t commemorate it. I found out three years ago when someone asked me to write about the occasion. I launched @latinaslovetravel the same day and it sparked my activism for the Latinx community. Previously, I hadn’t flaunted my Latinidad. I wasn’t encouraged to embrace my roots outside of the safety of my home. I was two different people, one girl who felt free when she’d spend weeks in Uruguay almost every year, and another girl who felt she couldn’t be her truest self in the US. I grew up thinking being of Indigenous Latinx heritage was a pitfall. I was proud at home, but not outwardly until I left the US 5 years ago. Without constant discrimination, microagressions, and violence to cloud my judgement I’ve come to know the truth, my Latinx heritage is my super power. Join me in celebrating #HispanicHeritageMonth (which should be called #LatinxHeritageMonth) by reading my relevant articles on lolaannmendez.com/Latinx.

TO BE INDIGENOUS AND AN IMMIGRANT. • To be an indigenous immigrant is to live at the intersection of two highly disenfranchised identities. The undocumented/immigrant identity. And the indigenous identity. • To understand what this means you have to understand the dynamics of racism in Mexico and Latin America, as they differ from what we know in the US. • The worst thing you can be called in Mexico and in the Latinx community is “Indio/india”. Yes, Mexico is racist. Latinidad is racist. • Most severely racist towards Indigenous people. • For those unfamiliar with the Latinx/Hispanic community, it is steeped in whiteness. It is whiteness..it just speaks a different language. Look up “Mexican/Latina” news anchors, celebrities, artist, models… any other figure that takes up space in wide spread media.. How many look like Yalitza Aparicio.. how many look like Karen Vega? How many look like me? • This culture of hatred, shame, and erasure for physical appearing Indigenous people has migrated along with the, 1 million+ Latino immigrants that come to the US each year. This means that even though YOU, may not share this embedded racism for Indigenous migrant people.. the main communities in which Indigenous migrant people exist still display extreme racism towards them. • You take all of this and throw in the intersection of being undocumented .. And now you are completely silent. People in the US dont look to you as an indigenous person because indigeneity as AMERICANS know it is linear. We have to have US tribal recognition, feathered headdress and a history on this land for our indigeneity to fit in your preconceived box. • Holy shit that was a lot, im sweating… So what can you do to help? See our humanity. Our humanity is respect, our humanity is our work, our humanity is listening, our humanity is our languages, our humanity is our history. UNDERSTAND that you do not need to cross an ocean to go and volunteer at some underserved country in order to help Indigenous communities.. WE ARE HERE. WE HAVE BEEN HERE. See us. .
