In about a month I'll be moving to Stockholm. I'll spend there fifteen months working and I can't tell you how excited I am.

So please, I'd love to read your tips and suggestions -especially by locals!- on the city: places to visit, cafes, shops...You can leave a comment or send me an e-mail to:

En poco más de un mes me mudo a Estocolmo. Estaré allí trabajando durante quince meses, así que tengo muchos motivos para estar contenta. Ya tengo donde quedarme y me muero de ganas por vivir esta experiencia al máximo. Así que me encantaría leer vuestros consejos y sugerencias: sitios que visitar, cafés, tiendas...Podéis dejar un comentario o mandarme un e-mail a:

Back soon!


It's been a while since I wrote anything here. I'm no good at goodbyes and honestly I never wanted to give up the blog. I knew I was coming back sooner or later. So now that my life is slowly going back to normal I'd like to pick up with Allure-Allure. 

However, I still want to do some changes around here, starting with a new design. You have to hold on just a little bit.

I am also looking for contributors so, if that sounds good to you, you can reach me at:

Ce soir nous sommes tous des enfants, des petits princes

Sobre cebollas y otras hortalizas


Picture: Julien Denoyer

Cinco años y aquí sigo, viendo como se aleja tras de mí la edad de la inocencia. Durante este tiempo las capas de tristeza se han ido apelmazando alrededor del alma. Aplastándola. Anulándola. Ahogándola. Y justo en el último aliento, sin pretenderlo, ha conseguido mantener el equilibrio a fuerza de resistir lo irresitible: la ausencia.

“Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won’t either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. It is the reason you are here on earth. You are here to risk your heart. You are here to be swallowed up. And when it happens that you are broken, or betrayed, or left, or hurt, or death brushes near, let yourself sit by an apple tree and listen to the apples falling all around you in heaps, wasting their sweetness. Tell yourself you tasted as many as you could.”

Pukine shop

Pukine shop is a Finland based store launched in 2011. Petra, the invisible hand behind it, truly believes in sustainable fashion.  She offers good quality clothes able to pass the test of time. That makes of Pukine a very appealing shop for the slow fashion believer. To top it off, every single item has the allure of vintage clothes combined with a modern and bohemian touch. At Pukine we can find brands like Patouf, Bric-a-Brac or the eco-conscious Camilla Norrback among others. Labels like TBA or Erica Weiner’s jewellery will also be available really soon.

Sharing love in the blogosphere

for me, for you fundraiser

I don't know if you follow Kate Miss' blog "For me, for you", but if you do, you'll already know the difficult situation she's going through. Her boyfriend has been diagnosed with testicular cancer and unfortunately he doesn't have health insurance. Living in the US that means having to face a big economic problem. To cover the costs, Kate organised a fundraiser selling her pictures and collages and it was a total success! Will and Kate already have enough money to pay for the bills. I can't help but feel so proud of being a part of such a generous community as the blogosphere. From here I'd like to congratulate them both and I wish Will a quick recovery.

Jessica Lange

Last Tueday I went to the brand new Niemeyer Center to see the much-awaited Jessica Lange's photography exhibition.  Unseen, is arranged in two parts: "Things I see" and "Mexico-On Scene", that except from the use of black and white have nothing to do with each other. Truth to be told there are high quality photos in the show but the whole turns out to be pretty basic. Perhaps it's because as my grandmother would put it "one shouldn't bite off more than you can chew" and as a photographer, Jessica Lange almost choked.

Steve Mono


I've been looking for the perfect briefcase for as long as I can remember but the wait is now over. As if they were able to read my mind, the people at Steve Mono have done exactly what I wished for. The bags are carefully made in Spain with an exquisite leather and are inspired by "vintage photos, books or movies" from the 50's and 60's.

By the way, I've been interviewed by the people at shopaholic. You can see my answers here scrolling down a bit.

At this point, I haven't got over breton t-shirts yet and with the emergence of brands like Chance, I think I'll never will. Her founder and creative director states "desing, simplicity, personal style and adventure. I've always known I'll build my business around these values. The striped t-shirt is the Chance icon and anchor, but it's also just the beginning. Ultimately it's about endless possibility." I think I'm in love.
