FLIGHT OF SPICE was created to inspire its readers to take the risk of living life their way.

Di Carolina, the editor, recently moved to New York City after living in Costa Rica. She has lived in 8 countries previously, co-owns a boutique design studio, is an internationally certified Yoga Instructor and has had art exhibitions in several countries (with no art training).

This blog is a reflection of a nomadic lifestyle, her passion for beautiful things, her personal style and her constant urge for adventure.

The growth of the blog has been exponential. With less than two years from going live, FLIGHT OF SPICE has had press in Costa Rica and Mexico. It was featured in National Television in Costa Rica, and elected as one of the top lifestyle bloggers for the City Guide annual edition of EGO Magazine. In the last year, the blog has collaborated with brands like Schutz, Adolfo Dominguez, Mango, Cortefiel, Woman´s Secret, Kipling, Guess, Studio F and Cover Girl, amongst others. Diana was also appointed as ambassador for Max Mara in Costa Rica in 2016.

As guest fashion editor, Diana worked directly with the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week edition of Traffic Magazine in Costa Rica and has written articles for the Reforma Newspaper in Mexico City. As a promoter of affordable luxury and good design, she has also interviewed rising talents like Ocelote, Toribio and Ariana Castillo, amongst other fashion designers.

Today, her readership continues to grow globally.

Together with the Boutique Design Studio she co-owns with her brother,  ALVA DE LA SELVA DESIGN LAB, this blog is the incubator of new ideas and a contact with a young hearted, vibrant tribe of bold individuals that like us, are out there looking for inspiration to live life our way.
