Born on January 18, 1982, Ariadne Artiles is one of the most recognized models in our country. Beyond her impeccable presentations on the catwalks and her innate gift for posing in front of the cameras-in addition to her media relationship with Fonsi Nieto for more than two decades-Artiles is recognized for her books on the well-being of she. A concern that had always resided in her, but that she has exposed with more emphasis in recent years. The Canary Islander has combined her work as a model with her reflections on well-being and the experience of motherhood, something that has even ended up turning her into a writer.

Wellness and maternity
Mother life, her most personal project
Ariadne has been able to translate her learning in fashion design into two clothing collections that bear her own name and have been a resounding success in sales throughout Europe. However, her modeling career took another turn on December 31, 2017, at which time she gave birth to her first daughter, whom they decided to name after her. That same year she launched @lavidamadre, her first project focused on motherhood. In less than a year, she has reached a large number of mothers who love her fun approach to motherhood.
A project that has gained even more strength – if possible – after the birth on April 5, 2021 of her twins, María and Julieta. A delivery that turned out to be the most complicated, and about which she spoke with The vanguard a few months ago. “We had to do a cesarean section in which I lost a lot of blood and I hardly count it. María and Julieta are two warriors who, by the way, have eaten their mother in a lactation that has been very hard, but that I think has helped that today we are here healthy and strong”, she expressed in an interview with Joana Bonet.
But that is not all. In the year 2020, Ariadne takes another step in her professional career and publishes her first book, called Pure Life, together with the Planeta publishing house, a book about his personal experiences and his healthy lifestyle. In addition, on his social networks, he helps everyone who wants to learn to eat healthier with easy recipes that he shares on his Instagram. For her it is a way of making her fans aware of the importance of eating healthy and for this she recommends recipes. This is something that has made her gain many followers in recent times and be a very influential famous face on the Instagram social platform, beyond her facet as a model.
In 2022, she released a book dedicated to motherhood. In pure life mother, tells everything, the beautiful and the hard, as well as the reality that was found to be a mother and how it has been and continues to be a journey that never ends. “Nothing prepares you to be a mother, but being a mother prepares you for whatever. And it is that until that moment comes you do not realize the strength you have; motherhood teaches you that the power of women is amazing”, expressed a few months ago in another interview for The vanguard.
Currently, at 41 years old, the model seeks to continue improving with new projects. To her trajectory as a model is added her facet as a businesswoman. Recently, she has opened a hotel in Gran Canaria, the Pura Vida San Agustín beach house, in homage to the eight Canary Islands and to César Manrique. A great example of a woman who wants to conquer the world and improve herself day after day.
