A place called home

These days are so hot around Barcelona, and summer is almost here in Spain, where spring and autumn are so short. I must say that I don't like summer in Spain, it's so hot and I feel so bad from dawn to dusk, with all the hot weather. I'm so scared of the sun since I get burned when I was a child...

Ego (by my friend)

I think you remember my lovely friend Rocío Ponce, I made an interview with her some months ago. Today I was looking to her Flickr account and saw some lovely pictures from me there, so I want to share them with you, as you'll be able to see how she sees me through her camera.

Ridding a scooter is driving me crazy

I can't sleep tonight, but I'm not so inspired too for writing a long explanation here... so I leave you with a little bit of inspiration... I so badly wish I could go to Carnaby Street back in the 60s...

Cherry lips (Go bagy, go go!)

Today's been another nice day! As I told you yesterday, it was Saint George here, and as the tradition goes, I bought my boyfriend a book... but not only he bought me a rose... he gave me a gorgeous Bettie Page Portfolio, the Kick-Ass comic book and the Spirit of 69, A skin Bible book!! Thank you dear!!

It's working

Yesterday we walked through the Borne and discovered some lovely places. In this shop, I bought some little things that I'll show you soon, but not now!

Cinema bizarre!

Last Friday we went into the Base Party at Terrassa. Kim, Esther's boyfriend, was the showman of the night and we danced a lot and had a great time.

Hong Kong Garden

Yesterday night we celebrated Laia's birthday party. Her birthday it's on Monday, but we prepared a decadent romantic party, with lots of lovely people dressed in a very magical way. A bunch of photos are coming, be prepared for it!

Comment lui dire adieu

Sweet Nothing...

Today I've spent the day with lots of lovely people around me. First of all, my lovely friend Cristina came to my house, and we walked our way to Eric's place, where Omar, Jordi and Yuki were waiting for us just for having lunch... and we ate this delicious curry!

Interview: Maria Confer (Lulu Letty), cute drawings, handmade bows and red lips with a vintage style.

I could say lots of things about Maria: as a blogger, as the designer of lovely handmade bows, as a woman with a great style or as a drawer... but first of all, I consider Maria as a friend. And I want to say that because, when I started blogging, for me, was strange get in touch with a person that is miles and miles away from me, a person I haven't met in person. But Maria gives you confidence and friendship with her kind comments and appreciations.

I can't remember when I started to follow Maria, but I read her blog every single day. I love her posts about DIY, music (she's got an excellent taste), outfits, drawings and outfits; and how she shares her life piece by piece with us.

So, I'm sure you all know some things about Maria, that vintage lover who makes lovely drawings of herself, dogs or gorgeous people... but...

Who's Maria Confer?

Soul le ciel de Barcelona.

Today was a good day. It was raining over Barcelona, something that I really love, and I met my friend Rocío for having a coffee and took some pictures in the city centre. We went into a lovely shop where they sell Japanese kimonos, called Nagoya; and after that, we went to the Caelum Cafe, a very adorable place, and we ate chocolate cake, coffee, hot chocolate and a muffin.

Taste you...

You all know that I'm obsessed with red hair girls... Julianne Moore, Florence & The Machine, Shirley Manson, Lilly Cole... and now, taking the advantage that she's releasing her new album, I can say it loud: I love Mellissa Auf Der Maur.

I don't know why but I want an Union Jack

These days I don't know why, but I'm thinking so seriously about leaving Spain in the next few months and moving into UK, Germany or Sweden... well, I know that I would end my days on Sweden, but the other two countries are beating so deep in my heart, especially the UK, just because I can't stop listening to The Who and think about that gorgeous Union Jack jacket.

Interview: Dennis Swiatkowski, Get Your Plane Right on Time... and the city lights.

When I decided to make a series of interviews, I was clear from the beginning that I wanted to interview Dennis. People like him expand the vision of fashion on the street and created art to have an account, and art that we create every day in front of our closet, and later, people like him that are on the street, think that are worthy admire.

Dennis prints magic on his photos, I do not know how, but I do watch them capture the essence of the person shown in it. I suppose there are some people blessed with a gift for capturing people through a camera, and Dennis is for me one of those people; The Man From Amsterdam, the man who shows us the world through his eyes...

I really think we need people like Dennis in the world. People who show us the beauty of it through their eyes, dreamy, magical and mysterious. People who, through their work, remind us that man is a being fabulous, full of creativity, vitality and able to build beautiful things. For me, the work done by Dennis expresses all this and more with his photos, as he shows us glimpses of the world around us, a world full of a beautiful life.

But... who's Dennis Swiatkowski?

La Photocabine

Today, Octavio, Sergio and I have been making the dumb with La Photocabine...



I love this page, it's so funny!

I've been in a birthday too, but I don't feel very well, I'm catching a cold... my throat akes! Sigh! So that's why I didn't make the translation yet, sorry about that! I'll do it in this week; I must also publish a very special interview I made about a week ago... :)!

Was your weekend good?

Is good having friends like these

As you know, since I'm living in Barcelona, I've left so many good people there. My beloved Rose, Jose and Anabel; Lucy, David, Ana... lots of people. Today I had a lovely evening with some of my best friends around here...

Inspiration: A girl full of color

I've recently discovered Shan, a wonderful woman that makes greatest outfits full of colours and dreams...
