You will have noticed any or all of the following:
I am not the perfect blogger.
I am faaaaaaaaar from being a good blogger (sometimes I even wonder whether I am a blogger).
I like blogging.
I enjoy surfing the Web and reading blogs.
I have been away from my blog and -what is worse- from my all times and new favourite readings quite long.

And the last obvious thing: I will be on blog-vacation until September comes to stay. I am feeling as if the too warm weather and the sun outdoors are calling my name. And I need to answer. And I need to spend less time in front of my computer (some parts of my body are also talking to me).

Maybe we'll see after this brief couple of months? I will be back, for sure!

If there is anything I like, it is travelling by train. It is so... smooth, so nostalgic, so romantic in the train.
I love me a good book, some music or even a good old film (hey, I watched E.T.: the Extra-Terrestrial for the first time in the train, when I was like 22. All the wagon laughing or animatedly chatting while remembering little details of the film, after the one hundred and two times they had seen it, and what was I doing? Crying my heart out!), or just looking through the window while the landscape runs, runs, runs.

And know what? This weekend I will be travelling, 5 hours go and 5 back. By bus! Happy weekending.

Yesterday was Saturday and today is... Thursday again?!
I am not quite sure about what happened to this week. Suddenly it is almost gone. Believe me, this is something nice as far as laboral week is concerned, but, where is all my spare time gone? What have I read this week? No answer. What films have I enjoyed this week? No answer. Any improvements to the state of my messy flat? Better not to give an answer.
Well, I will stop complaining, and try to catch up with myself and life.

And here, some beautiful blogs I am enjoying these days...
Interesting words, nice images and utterly beautiful videos, don't miss Pacing The Panic Room
New ideas and discoveries at Green is the new black
Handmade bliss at Robin and Mould (don't miss their sweet and fun owls)
Lovely outfits by Frocks and Frou Frou
All things beautiful are to be found at Creature Comforts

It is Friday again. Hey, I must be a lucky girl!

In case anyone was wondering about my yoga, just wanted to let you know that I am not that far with it. That my practice is quite unorthodox, but that I am ok with it. So, what should I say? Is it good? I really don't know.
In other news, I'm just feeling a little bit...
For a good laugh, refer to They'll never deceive you! and they are as good and true as this one.

Summer may have started some ten days ago, but for me the first weekend of summer is the first one in July. So let's the fun begin!

Happy weekend!

July is here, and so my body is dreaming of the beach (oooh, last week, when I was there, sounds so distant now), and of beautiful bathing suits.

I bought a new bikini, almost this beautiful, on May and was able to wear it in my short holidays. I hope it won't get in the closet all the remaining of the summer.
Also, looking at this beautiful one, I wonder whether I should do something to my hair. Maybe I sould get my bangs cut as nice as Bernie's, although I don't think I'd look as fabulous. Now my hair is at that lenght that it's not a nice bob, but neither it is a beautiful proper long hair. All I can do is not liking it. Maybe I should go for a solution...
Look what July brouhgt to me -now I know I DO need a visit to my hairdresser's.

I am feeling kind of uninspired. Still, I didn't want to stop writing... maybe I'll focus on my yoga (starting today!) a couple of days, and then feel more inspiration and will.
See you soon!

Thursday, 10 June 2010


So the summer may be shying away, but I feel the summer in me.

And these beautiful things are helping me living my indoor summer dream today. There is something in Fred Perry's clothes that makes me feel fine, and like wanting to softly play tennis (even if I can't, even if I don't like it) at the club (which club?), and drink cocktails (at the club again?) all day long. Maybe I just need some fresh air.

Wednesday, 9 June 2010


Suddenly it is not hot. It is almost cold. Suddenly the sky is grey. Suddenly I had to close my window because of the wind. And suddenly all I can think of is ice-creams.
Delicious, summerish, colourful, happy ice-creams. My mind is all like that. Maybe I'd better prepare some chicken broth, it seems the weather is going ugly for some more days.

In other news, I am all excited as in a few days I will be starting my yoga lessons. I had tried it some years ago, but it resulted in disaster, so I am willing to see what happens this time -and see if my stiff body recovers some flexibility, or at least mobility, as it seems all I do is being on my computer and watching tv. OK, and going for a nice walk from time to time. And sew? That's not moving strictly speaking, right? OK, yoga, here I go!

Some days are just great. And smell too good. And dreams sometimes just come true.
I got a beautiful parcel on the post (THANKS! It made my day).
And, guess who came with it?

After all, Mondays are not that bad.

Thursday, 3 June 2010


I have to admit that I am an obsessive girl. I get obsessed with all kind of things, and some time afterwards, my obsession deflates like a forgotten balloon in a birthday party. Seriously, is there anything more pity-inspiring than a deflated balloon?
Songs have the beautiful ability to make me listen to them once and again, for an entire day. For a whole week most part of the day. And, obviously, I end up detesting them (just for a reasonable period of time).
But for some reason, I have been singing this song and playing the video for too long now, and I don't seem to feel any signs of hate.

(some day I'll learn how to embed videos correctly, so that one can see the full video and not only a part of it)
Here to a long weekend! Enjoy yours.

JUNE, and summer is here

So, June is here (I didn't arrive on the 1st to celebrate) and I am thrilled.
I am not feeling totally perfect, but my hay fever is remitting, so I can say I feel fine and good.
So, some nice things I managed to do while not at my best health status:
  1. Finish sewing my first skirt ever (not too bad, ok, and not too good)
  2. Bake a nice sponge cake in our brand new oven
  3. Eat some deliiiicious food (and no need to cook it. Do not misinterpret me, I love cooking, but savouring meals you didn't need to cook and NO dishes to do is a real pleasure)
  4. ??
It seems those are the most significant things I accomplished. I should be making an effort for accomplishing some more, I think. Lists are good (or bad if you come to realise you did not that much).
I'd better go for a huge glass of water, it is really hot here today. And I'll do something fun. I'll do something. Whatever. That's all.

Tuesday, 25 May 2010


After a relaxing, nice and looong weekend, today I don't feel at all back on track. In fact, I am not feeling well.

Maybe I'll have to wait until tomorrow for everything to be fine again.
Maybe I love-hate spring and my hay fever is causing it all.

When you think everything sucks, and you are having horrible nightmares while sleeping, and tears unexpectedly want to come into your eyes... Suddenly you just wake up to a fresh beautiful morning. Breeze. Birds. A nice breakfast. And some ugly urgent work to do but, who cares? You realize that (at least by now today).
And as so, this weekend I'll do my best to make it better, and will try to find my way to one of these lovely deliciousness.
On a side note, I do have some nice touches of pink in my home-office. BFF gave these to me.

So now I'm started in the pink trend, right?
[Note to self: do not ever use again your own really bad and not edited photos in the same post you are using someone's else beautiful ones until you learn how to shoot. Thanks]
Have a nice weekend!

As focused as I have been in creating a comfortable and lovely little office at home, I have been so blind thinking only of whites, some reds, and a few oranges. However, I felt a kind of a shock today seeing these photos via Design*Sponge. HOT PINK! Why on Earth hadn't I thought of pink?

Maybe it is because I am so obsessed with red, and with getting the sensation of a wider space thanks to white that I couldn't even think of any other colour.
Maybe it is also that when I saw this lovely corner, I just relaxed and felt like reading, reading, reading, and enjoying a nice cup of tea here like forever.

I am so in love with Kirsten Voortman's place...

Tuesday, 18 May 2010


I am feeling kind of under the weather, and I think it may be because of the spring and this weakness so linked to this season. I am on my royal jelly already, and maybe I need some colortherapy -red is needed today around here. Definitely.

CATASTROPHE (on a small scale)

Dear Tweezers,
Where are you today of all days? Don't be afraid, I'll be good to you. Promised! But, please do come back.

Thursday, 13 May 2010


I think I might need at least one of these sooner or later.

Tuesday, 11 May 2010


There is something about purple flowers, that makes me feel comfortable, reassured, spring-like, soft, a little bit corny (?). And I have been savouring some nice moments through these beautiful comemeriendas (steal-picninc), as we familiarly call them in my little corner of Spain, Moa Maria has found.

And through these violets with which Soule Mama has made a deliciously looking pie.

Probably next week some of these will be totally irrelevant, and I will be hating something else. Maybe not.

  • Grey days when all I want is a little sunshine
  • People washing the dishes with cold water (afterwards the dishes are slippery, specially if you dressed your salad with some olive oil)
  • My tastebuds needing some vinegar, and not having gherkins in the fridge
  • Dog owners allowing their loved animals pooping all over the street
  • Extremely talkative restaurant waiters
  • Loving chocolate so much!
  • Not having hot water the minute I want to have a shower
  • Putting all my efforts in cooking a lovely meal, and that it results in something totally untasty (why me?!)
  • Making the bed
  • Talking on the phone (to nearly everybody)
But hating is not the only thing in life. Just one thing I do love. Oh my, do i love custard?

(not that I've had some today, but this was a delicious dessert I wanted to remember)

Wishing you a lovely weekend!

The weather is fooling us here, and after a couple of summer days, it is cold again. And here I am, daydreaming of sunny vacation days, margaritas, and long walks by the beach.

Obviously, this beautiful dress by Anthropologie makes it all absolutely perfect! (in my dreams)

Here I am again, after a long and not planned break.
Some areas of life need no commitment for me, and blogging is one of them. I become obsessed with something(healthily obsessed, please) and the next day I can't stand doing it. So... I suppose I just needed not doing it (as if I had been blogging for ages!).

Anyway, I just needed to write down how I felt yesterday in the evening while and after watching The Constant Gardener. This is so heavy on contents. The images, the story, all that is behind it...How many lies are we told each and every day of our lives?

If you haven't done it yet, it is a must!

Who is this mister? I don't know, but what I know is that he is totally in love.
He's part of the nice work of Blanca, you can see her work here.
I am totally in love too today.

Friday, 5 March 2010


She lives 900km away, where I too lived until some months ago.
Together we have gone to college, shared flats, worked, watched crap tv, fell in love, traveled, cried, laughed (LAUGHED), enjoyed delicious food... and together we have

I am so happy we are spending this weekend... guess what? Together.
Here's to best friends!

I do love chocolate. And if New York Magazine says that it is good eating one ounce of dark chocolate a day, who am I to say no to that? I am enjoying their 50 Steps to Simple Happiness. Obviously not all of them are at my reach, but I am getting some nice ideas.

In case anyone was wondering about my good news for me...

This is my new telephone!!!


Nothing that scissors, markers and paper can't save!

I can't help but dreaming about these Kara Janx's lovelies all-the-time. Just one, please!
- Budget, can you hear me?
- Sure, but you shouldn't!
- Oh, aren't they niiiiiice?

*photo thanks Oh Joy!

Guess what?

And it is not that I'm watching this film tonight... (although that would be good as well).
I'll let you know on due time! (lol)

(two posts on the same day, while no readers around here? anyway, clicking 'publish post' makes me happy!)


This sunny and warm winter Saturday makes me dream of reading outside. And this reading pillow by Sew Liberated seems all comfortable.
I have just started learning to sew, and this could be one of my first projects.

What can you do when you are feeling all drowsy but you can't sleep?
It's six in the morning, you still have more than an hour left in bed, and
you only want some more sleep, but you know it won't happen (who knows why).
So get up, undress, put your swimswit on and wait!, remember the Flood Myth? Yes.
So stay at home, do not undress, make lunch, fold some clothes, fear your workday ahead and... get a deliiiicious ham and avocado sandwich with a nice cup of tea with cinnamon.
A good start for a not less good day!

Every other week or so I fall in love with a new blog.

I get excited (and exhausted) looking through all the beautifulness in the photos and text. I like how it makes me feel when I cannot stop smiling and reading. And want to see more, and I go through the Archives. In a certain way, I feel like some kind of voyeur, but in a lovely nice sense (!)
This past week Sandra Juto's blog has just taken my breath away.
I love her creations, and her style and pearls.
Enjoy with me, my friends!

Today is a lovely Sunday...
and this beautiful teacup by huset and the loveliest company would make it a totally perfect Sunday! (so make it two or three of the teacups, please)

Come on, are you feeling bittersweet, girl?
Grab some tangerines, right, and just a lemon.

And now, sing along. Much better now!
What do you do for a happier day when feeling a little bittersweet?

Monday, 18 January 2010


[A week after my last -and second- post I decided that in fact I had nothing to say here, but...]
In the past few years I have been experiencing markedly low and high mood states -not that it is something as serious as to get medically treated, if it was, I would already have gone for professional advice.
And now that I have embarked on a new adventure in life, which I thought would have me jumping with happiness and showing an indelible smile, but has me crying and trying to avoid sudden saddness, I have been wondering how to deal with my emotional roller coaster.
[And this brings us back to the point where this post started: "but..."] For the time being I have decided that part of my therapy will be writing anything to you, whoever you are. Even if you are only me re-reading my posts (how weird is this?!).
So I'll try to write, write, write and enjoy the roller coaster ride.
