I’m Lourdes — a writer, reporter and author living in New York City. My work includes service journalism, essays, news articles, and ghostwriting books. I am currently a Senior Staff Writer at HuffPost covering shopping trends, commerce, lifestyle, and other cultural subjects.
Previously, I was a full-time freelance writer for an assortment of digital and print publications, brands, and organizations—researching and reporting on topics from pop culture to targeted marketing for brands. My work has appeared in Vice, Glamour, Refinery29, Camille Styles, and more. Topics generally include beauty, style, wellness, women’s issues, culture, and their various intersections.
Born and raised in the suburbs of Los Angeles, I made my way to New York in 2013 where I currently reside with my elderly chihuahua mix, Maeby.
