Blanca Suarez Blog
Her acting career brought her so much attention, she was offered the chance to write a blog documenting her experiences and more for Vouge Espana. She started writing the blog in 2014, and praised the hair and make-up people, as well as the photographers, who helped illustrate each post with stunning photos, both posed and candid while on the job.
One post took readers behind the scenes of promotion for a project, while another discussed vintage fashion and how she has a section in her closet dedicate to such pieces. She also wrote about her decision not to stray too far from home on the blog, sharing some personal insight into her life and relationships. Earlier this year, she wrote a farewell post to her readers, saying that after three years the blog was coming to an end. She hasn’t stayed idle, though.
