Beach house

Beach house


Even though while you're reading this I am in Sicily (hopefully swimming in the sea, eating delicious pasta or having a siesta), here you have another post with pics from Portugal! We rented a little house through Airbnb which had a very original design but was a bit old and needed to be taken care of, a bit like everything in Portugal. Luckily the weather finally changed and it was nicer the last days so I could wear some more summer-ish clothes, more aproppiate for Hawaii maybe but, why not? In the end fashion is what allows us to create our fantasies without having to travel so far.

Moledo do Minho

Moledo do Minho


After so many days without updating the blog I don't really know how to start posts anymore! This weekend I've been to a village in the north of Portugal called Moledo do Minho, right by the mouth of the river Minho. I had never been to Portugal before so it's been an interesting experience, my favorite moment were the sunsets in the Atlantic! Although I've been to the Mediterranean during my whole life, also to the Pacific when I went to Mexico, I had never been able to touch the waters of the Atlantic ocean, and neither this time since it was excessively windy (notice my hair in the pics?), it was cold and the water, as I heard, was frozen too.

I actually spent the whole weekend wondering how anybody can call that "beach" and how do they want to go to such a cold place in summer, what I did know is that I am used to a maybe too good weather all year round, and how much I like it!

Summer days

Summer days


How are your summer holidays going? I, for the first time in many years, am enjoying them to the most and that's precisely because I've passed all my exams, I don't have any more in September and I am finally going to start my last course in Fashion Design and my final project, the time I've been looking forward for years!

After finishing the exams I wanted to take everything easy, I went a few days to the Costa Brava and visited a few villages I love just like Cadaqués (and the Salvador Dalí house) or Tossa de Mar, I was working in some personal projects, such as the dress I wore to a wedding near Madrid and I've been walking around the capital of the country with a must visit to the Agent Provocateur shop (when in Barcelona!?) to which I walked in saying "I'm not going to buy anything" and you'll see what I got! That's all summarized in my last Instagram pics, sorry if you've already seen them, if not, why aren't you following me yet??

Foodie Style presentation

Foodie Style presentation

Almost 2 weeks ago, during my exams, I finally managed to make some room between projects and studying to attend this great event by Olocomesolodejas, my new blogsite 'to go' when I need to find out new restaurants to eat in Barcelona or Madrid, to present their new Instagram project: Foodie Style, which consists on mixing food and fashion, sounds good, doesn't it?

It's not big news that I love food so you can imagine my excitement about this event, plus, the dress code was 'foodie style' and you know how seriously I always take a theme, I was the only one at the party completely covered by food motifs! Besides the fact that I looked like a human shaped lemon tree (don't be fooled by my irony, I actually loved it), I had a great time, we got to eat many delicious things and be spoilt by the beautiful location and staff of El Principal.

Most of you will have already started the summer holidays but sadly I haven't... Last week I was working at the 080 Barcelona Fashion and I still have some exams next week and, even though all I have to do is forget about summer and the beach for a few more days, today I'm sharing some summer-y clothes I've been eyeing for a while and ask you a little bit of patience since I'm gonna be a bit absent this week.

My favorite piece of today's wishlist is the striped Sonia Rykiel t-shirt that you can find in Zalando (and thanks to the Cuponation discount codes you can get it with for less!). Stripes are my favorite print all year round, it's a basic that looks always perfect, and if it comes with hearts it's perfect. It can only be improved with watermelon accesories that, besides being a very photogenic fruit, it's my favorite fruit, I'm looking forward to summer all the time to be able to eat it all the time!
