Who Am I ?

XIMENA SALCEDO

Spring 2014

1. Who am I? 

I am me: a dreamer, a believer, and free spirit always trying to radiate good energy and stay positive.

2. What do you do and what project are you currently working on?

I am a Fashion Merchandising student and blogger at thirdeyestyle.blogspot.com.

I am also an artist. Right now I’m trying to make a little more time to get back to that and have been working on new projects and crafts. I also really want to get back into film, photography and painting but that won’t be until I graduate from school this spring when I can actually put lots of focus on it and put all these ideas I have to work.

3. Where are you from and where are you going?

I am originally from Peru, but I live in Brooklyn right now.  I want to travel a lot and live in different parts of the world for a little while, experience new cultures, try amazing food and see different life styles. The beauty of nature, life, beautiful souls and music are some of the things that inspire me the most.

4. Who is your biggest hero?

I couldn’t pick one. I admire a lot of people — especially the ones that take risks and step out of their comfort zone to accomplish their goals. All those dreamers that made it and stayed true to themselves inspire me to keep going everyday and work really hard to see myself where I want to be.

5. What book is your bible?

Be Here Now by Ram Dass. This book always lifts my spirits when they”re down. It changed the way I see life when I first read it a few years back. I strongly recommend it to anyone.

6. What are some things you love? And some things you hate?

I love hats, yoga, meditating, my puppy, crystals, full moons, smoothies, shoes, prints, rainbow food (lots of veggies), Peruvian food, music, Marrakesh mint tea, incenses, traveling, the beach, fall, watching shows with my boyfriend, hanging out with friends, festivals, hiking, nature in general, cooking, visiting my giant awesome family, and anything vintage.

I hate GMOs and all that crap that is in a lot of our food, cigarette smoke, being sick, and super cold weather like we have had lately.

7. What is your raison dӐtre?

I am passionate about fashion and art. Accomplishing my dreams is what drives me to keep going everyday. I am so thankful for the rough times because they make me appreciate the good ones even more. Positive thinking, positive happening.

8. What is your favorite color?

Violet.

9. Who is your favorite comic book superhero?

Batman.

10. What is your favorite NYC hot spot?

I have so many…

In Brooklyn I love the Bedford, Lincoln Park Tavern, Coco Roco, Tip of the Tongue (they have the best chai lattes), Output, and Fairway (my heaven lol).

In the city I love Central Park, Ruben’s Empanadas, Vanessa’s Dumplings, Taïm Falafel, Grand Daisy Bakery, and I love going to concerts at Terminal 5 — always the best vibes.

11. What turns you on?

Motivated people that are passionate for what they do and are good at it.

12. What would the last question of this questionnaire be if you were the one asking?

What is your favorite thing to do in the summer?

I would say road tripping with my best friends to go to camp festivals. Escaping reality while listening to the most amazing music and seeing crazy outfits with the best vibes all around. It”s just amazing.
