Veronica Poblete redefines the term, “mother.” She is the resident botanist at the Alto Atacama Desert Lodge & Spa and the minute I met her I knew she had so much to teach us — not just about plants and seeds — but about life, love — and even sex! She is a biologist, botanist, and taxonomist who has studied around the world, but her favorite place in the world, the place she always returns to, is the Atacama Desert. I’m so excited for you to hear the wisdom from the mother of the desert…
In New York City, it’s officially freezing. As I sit here writing to you, I am at my desk, wrapped in a scarf, with a steaming cup of tea in my hand, just trying to recover from the last time I had to go outside (and dreading the next time that I’ll have to). When the winter holidays end, my feelings about the cold weather immediately shift from “it’s charming” to “it’s inconvenient and I’m ready for spring.”

Describe your style in three words or phrases.
Unisex, classic, cool.
What are you wearing and how does it reflect your personal style?
All white! I basically dress myself differently everyday. It really depends on my energy on the day itself.
I think the way someone dresses says a lot about the person inside out. The outfit I am wearing here is all white and, that day, I remember feeling quite bizarre about sudden life changes. I felt like I had to cover myself in the brightness to stay open in whatever came my way.
