Hi everybody!
As most of you guys know I have been spending time in the Netherlands where I had a great time creating a nice balance of work and pleasure. What's is especially great about this trip is that mostly of my friends in Rotterdam & Amsterdam had time to spend it with me and show me new places I haven't seen before even though I visit the netherlands every year.
Make sure to follow along on Snapchat and Instagram (GAMBITSKY) to see what I'm up to😉.

My arms are wide open to fall and with the leaves changing shades and the weather cooling down, this time of year is always about staying warm but never losing that innate sense of style.
While I travel I love to pack key pieces I can easily style instead of packing lots of clothes.
That's why I decided to pack a pair of black jeans & Shoes.
What’s great about wearing black is that it’s not too difficult to throw together; it’s the perfect choice if you’re in a hurry in the morning or just don't feel for putting too much time into an outfit .
The shade is appropriate for all occasions. Black, though simple, packs a lot into one punch. It’s elegant, chic, slimming, and great for all skin types. There is also a lot of room for creativity!

The cool contemporary take on old fashion favorites suits me perfectly as I absolutely adore this blazer and sunglasses. The blazer is so elegant and easy to wear with a skirt, t shirt and a pair of heels or the kind of look I'm wearing here.
Absolutely an effortless look, giving me a Parisian vibe that is both charming and alluring.

I bid farewell to summer and I fully embrace everything fall has to offer.

XOXO , Camila Andrea.

"What i like about her is that she blooms whether you water her or not. Whether you give her light or not. She exists without your existence."

We live in a society where we are pressured to talk about relationships and actively pursue them.
To be fully honest; I always get stressed out by the question- Camila, How's your love life?-
The curiosity, the expectations... Are my answers good enough to people?..

- One of my childhood friends called me yesterday, all the way from Colombia.
His call made me extremely happy! He was the guy who taught me how to skate, play video games & just be a kick ass tomboy.
After updating each other about our professional lives, the little love life question popped up!
I was numbed.
Carefully laughing he made the question all over again; I simply asked him back how his love life was; assuming he was forever single as I am; but he wasn't of course.
After listening to his lovely story about his relationship that sounded just like a movie; he made the question again followed by - A girl like you can't be single.
And there I was... nervously laughing and answering at the same time; I have been single 5 years.
He was quite and surprised to hear how my latest & only relationship was, how different guys in the Scandinavia can be, compared to guys in South America when it comes to love and how to approach a woman.

The whole conversation made me think and here I am, writing it.
Being a woman raised in a country where the romanticism is a big key of a relationship and not experiencing at all where I live, is probably the mainly problem.

I'm so happy to finally announce my beauty secret I have been keeping from you & now it's finally the time for you to be a part of it too!


Some of you might remember I was in Helsinki, Finland in April for a shoot; to my joy I had the privilege to be a part of Maybelline's newest FIT ME campaign together with 15 other lovely influencers from all around Scandinavia.
Each of us is a shade ambassador, showing you all the existing shades of the Fit Me Matte + Poreless Foundation Collection.

Creating different makeup looks is where I get to feel like an artist experimenting with shades and shapes.
The Fit Me collection has in total 16 Shades, 8 of them are new shades; giving all of us the option to find the foundation that matches our beautiful skin. Simply apply a little bit of foundation on your chin or neck and blend. Does it Fit you? That's the shade you go for! 😉


You know how much I love beauty products that helps to achieve a gorgeous & effortless look. Who doesn't want a flawless canvas to work on?

When I was a kid; My lovely mother used to dressed me with tracksuits and matching sneakers. She picked up very carefully the colors; the material and the brand that my siblings and I would wear for the weekends.
My love and interest for sneakers and street wear has always been there since I was a kid. Today this interest has taken another side; discovering new brands and new items to put into my collection has become a hunt and a forever passion that I like to combine with into my “other kind” of style.

Combining different clothing pieces is something that is very fun to experiment with. This skirt is very preppy but instead of wearing it with heels and a blouse; I decided to wear a comfortable sweater & my favorite pair of sneakers.

If you decide to wear clothes that doesn’t show your body so well; try to balance your outfit with one piece that has a tight fit on your body and the other one has to be a loose fit. For example If you wear a pair of skinny jeans, use a loose fit on your blouse or t-shirt, this way the styling will emphasize the best of your body.
