Primavera, 2010

primavera, 2010

This is how spring looks like in the park near my house. I am afraid the picture doesn't do it any justice because it is overexposed, but I like it anyway.

Así es la primavera en un parque al lado de mi casa. Me temo que la foto no le hace justicia porque está sobreexpuesta, pero a mi me gusta de todas maneras.

Lina Scheynius


Lina Scheynius is, in my opinion, one of the best photographers that have emerged in recent years. No one can make us dream with the most mundane things like her.

Lina Scheynius es, para mí, una de las mejores fotográfas que han surgido en los últimos años. Nadie es capaz de hacernos soñar con las cosas mundanas como lo hace ella.

Heroes: Milan Kundera


Today, in the world book day, I strongly recommend you Kundera. If you already had the pleasure of reading him, it's time to spread the word, so many others continue to enjoy his work.

Hoy, en el día del libro, me gustaría recomendaros encarecidamente a Kundera. Si ya habeís tenido el placer de leerlo, es hora de regalarlo para que muchos otros sigan disfrutando con su obra.

The hot and hazy summer days are coming and I can't help but think of David Hamilton photography.

Los días confusos y calurosos de verano se acercan y no puedo evitar pensar en la fotografía de David Hamilton.

Eau thermale Avène


I recently discovered Avène Thermal spring water and right now I can't imagine my life without it. It is bottled directly from the source thus preserving all its properties. It is recommended for sensitive and irritated skin. I personally use it to improve skin hydration, as the products I use for acne leave my skin very dry. The freshness is felt inmediately and my skin looks better every day. Apart from that it has an affordable price (9€ for a 300 ml. spray.)

Hace poco que descubrí el agua termal de Avéne y ahora ya no me puedo imaginar mi vida sin ella. Es recogida directamente de la fuente y se envasa en un spray, conservando así todas sus propiedades. Está recomendada para pieles sensible o irritadas. Yo personalmente la utilizo para mejorar la hidratación de la piel, ya que los productos que uso para combatir el acné me dejan muy seca. La sensación de frescor es instantánea, y mi piel ha ido mejorando día a día. Además de todo eso, tiene un precio bastante asequible (9€ por un spray de 300 ml.)

Girls with Allure: Mode d'amour

mode-damour 3

Define your style. I find that a difficult question. I used to wear a lot of black, but lately I wear different soft colors. I would say that my style is basic, easy, and unpredictable.

When and why did you become interested in fashion? I became interested in fashion when i was 13 years old. I've always loved clothes, but i started to get more interested in fashion and designers at that time.

Who/what influences your style the most? There's not just one thing, I love to watch fashion shows, people on the street, magazines, movies, fashion from the 70's and 80's, the internet is a big inspitition, vintage shops, and so much more! and there are some people who inspire me like Mary-Kate Olsen, Kate Moss and I love Abbey Lee's style lately!

You'd never be caught in... bright colors! i do wear more colors lately than before, i used to wear lots of black, but i do wear some nude and brown tones now.

You can't live without... my dog, animals are my other passion.

Irving Penn

During my stay in London I had the chance to visit the exhibition of the recently deceased, Irving Penn. The show is composed by portraits only, but I think it is worth it.

Durante mi estancia en Londres tuve la oportunidad de visitar la exposición del recientemente desaparecido, Irving Penn. La muestra está compuesta únicamente por retratos, pero igualmente creo que merece la pena.

What's going on...

It's been more than a week since I wrote the previous note explaining the absence of posts for personal reasons. At that moment, I had neither the strenght nor the desire to tell what was going on. However right now, I feel that the most honest thing to do is explain the whole situation. My father is at the hospital and it is serious: he has a brain tumor. I'm not sure what's going to happen and I am a bit scared. I just wanted to let you know that now I'm not in the mood to write about frivolities, but I don't want to close the blog. That is why -also because I find it therapeutic- I will try to keep posting as much as I can.

Hace ya más de una semana de la anterior nota en la que explicaba la ausencia de posts por problemas personales. En aquel momento no tenía ni la fuerza ni las ganas de contar que me estaba pasando. Pero ahora mismo siento que lo más correcto y lo más sincero que puedo hacer es explicar un poco la situación. Mi padre está en el hospital y el asunto es grave: tiene un tumor cerebral. No sé muy bien que va a pasar y estoy un poco asustada. Sólo quería haceros saber que ahora no me apetece mucho escribir sobre frivolidades, aunque tampoco quiero cerrar el blog. Por eso, y porque para mi es casi terapeútico, voy a procurar seguir posteando lo más que me sea posible.
