Girl We Love: Danna Peña


Tell us about yourself.

I’m a Content Producer at Rappler and a leisure travel blogger. Besides my obvious interests, which are travel photography, reading and writing, I love spending time with my dog, having a cup of tea and watching films.

What are the things that inspire you?

My muses include (in no particular order): Nature. Terence, my boyfriend. Astronauts. David Bowie. The Rolling Stones. Amal Clooney. Elon Musk. The Smith family. Monks. Dogs. Athletes. Soldiers. Mothers. People who are addicted to their craft. People who put their money where their mouth is.

Dream destination.

I have plenty, but as of the moment: Rainbow Mountain in Peru. That place looks unreal!

4. What are some travel essentials that you always bring along with you?

Sunblock and my trusty iPhone 6s to take photos!

What do you like most about Wink?

How much of a good investment it is! Besides the long-lasting results, the customer service and the relaxing aura of the branches are great as well. I always feel so rejuvenated after getting a Wink treatment!

How does/did Wink help you with your travels?

Oh, it’s great because I could be very spontaneous! Not just that, but I like wearing very ‘free’ clothes — back revealing rompers, off-the-shoulder tops, anything sleeveless, you catch the drift. My usual travels are at the beach and mountains, and it could be very hot, so Gentlemax Pro’s treatment is perfect for me since it allows me to feel free and not have to worry about anything else besides enjoying the moment.

Your beauty secret is...

Loving myself. When you love yourself, everything else good naturally follows.

Favorite apps?

Dictionary (because I can’t get past a sentence without knowing what a word means), VSCO and Shazam!

Do you have any hidden talents?

I’m quite flexible, in a literal sense. It’s a natural gift so it must be a talent, right? On two separate occasions, both from a HIIT instructor and a boxing trainer, I was asked if I was a gymnast while being stretched after the workouts. They’d be pulling and pushing my body in awkward angles and I wouldn’t feel as much struggle as the average person. Maybe someday I could become your next yoga instructor? ;-) (Putting this out there for a self-fulfilling prophecy. Haha!)

What's your life mantra?

I have two: (1) Keep creating things that make you (and if possible, others) happy and (2) You are never too smart or too old to stop learning.
