Give Peace a Chance

Hi there everyone!
I haven't been able to post something since last saturday, sorry! But lots of things happened in the past few days, and at the moment I'm not at Barcelona... I'm at Algeciras, spending this week with my family, as next week I'm starting to work again and it wouldn't be able for me to come home for Christmas!

Today it's a very special day for me. As some of you may know, tomorrow (9th of December) it's my birthday... but today is the 30th anniversary of John Lennon's death.


Since I was a child (and I was born one day and one year after his death, something that my parents always told me) I've always loved John Lennon's art. The Beatles was one of my first favourite groups, as my father was playing their records for all the day everytime I was at Barcelona when I was a child... One of the first songs I singed in english was "Please, Mr Postman".


My father was a huge Beatle's fan, and he really admired John Lennon. So my mother used too. But it wasn't until I was a teenager that I realized how much I like is music and the messages he was trying to send.


Give Peace a Chance is one of the most beautiful songs ever, full of hope and with a pure energy for life, so so powerful that makes you sing and wish that, for sure, people would give peace a chance.


It's a simple message, so simple that maybe the ones who control this world doesn't understand. Or maybe they don't want to understand it. Or listening to it. The point is that the world is full of shit, of course... but I still believe in humans, and I still believe that we can leave a good world to our children when we're gone. I still believe in peace.

So that's why, today, I want you all to give peace a chance. Because it deserves it. And John too.

Today it was a good day around here. I saw my grandparents and some of my friends, and I walked around the city seeing how some things have changed... but it's the same. 

This morning I had the privilege to attend a private play that my friends are premiering next week. It was beautiful, more than beautiful, and I feel so lucky for seeing it... thank you guys!

As I can't show you any pictures until I have the permission, I leave you today with my outfit... the shoes are from Blanco, I bought them yesterday (as I would need them for work) and I'm in love with them... I call them "my gentlemen shoes"... aren't they great?

  2. Tenemos el autografo y fotos de los Beatles en casa. Mi marido los conoció cuando aún no eran muy conocidos y tocaban por los garitos. Así es que J. Lennon es lo más grande.

  4. Yo la verdad es que siempre he sido más fan de los Beatles que de Lennon en solitario, aunque reconozco que era un artistazo y además todo un filósofo... y sí, su filosfía de amor y paz debería aplicarse más a menudo, el mundo iría bastante mejor.
    Por cierto, enhorabuena por ese nuevo trabajo, ya nos contarás qué tal! Y felicidades adelantadas por tu cumpleaños, espero que lo pases genial mañana!
    Por último, me encantan tus nuevos zapatos y todo el look, me gusta mucho el contraste de estilos: masculino clásico en los zapatos, femenino-aniñado en la falda y punk-rockero en la camiseta, queda genial todo!

    1 besazo!
