[That pleated skirt (yet again)]*





I love this skirt, and I also love this top, and I have already shown them both to you on previous post so... on this lovely warm sunny day in London I thought "why not take them out together for a walk along the Thames?" This time instead of leather jacket and biker boots I opted for a more romantic look.

Adoro esta falda y también adoro este top, y ya os los enseñé en otras actualizaciones anteriores así que... en este día tan londinense soleado y cálido pensé "¿por qué no sacarlos juntos a dar una vuelta junto al Támesis?". Aunque esta vez opté por un look más romántico, en vez de cazadora de cuero y botas moteras.

TOP: JSK London

[Spring/Summer looks from Cosmo UK]*





I bought the April issue from Cosmopolitan yesterday (for the Clinique goodies, to be honest) and found this lovely looks I wanted to share with you, especially the first one with that skirt and top from Marks & Spencer that I am going to look for!


Which one is your favourite?

Ayer compré el número de Abril de la Cosmopolitan (por los regalitos de Clinique la verdad) y encontré estos looks que quería compartir con vosotros, sobre todo el primero con esa falda y top de Marks & Spencer ¡que tengo que encontrar como sea!


¿Cuál es vuestro favorito?

[Colour block heels]*





First day of this year that I was wearing sandals; the excuse? it was sunny (actually I fear I may be turning English because it was less than 20º) and I so wanted to wear them! So here's the outfit, mainly black to give all the protagonism to these lovely pair of colour block sandals.

Primer día de este año que me pongo sandalias; ¿la excusa? que hacía sol (la verdad es que me preocupa estar volviéndome inglesa, porque había menos de 20º) y que ¡tenía muchas ganas de ponerlas! Así que aquí está el conjunto, más que nada en negro para darle todo el protagonismo a estas preciosas sandalias de colour block.

[March Wishlist]*

It is a rather short wishlist for March, since it is about to end. I want these items from Zara and Primark, aren't I easy to please?

Es una lista bastante corta la de Marzo, ya que se está acabando. Quiero estas prendas de Zara y de Primark, ¿a que soy fácil de acontentar?









I have been honoured with the Versatile Blogger award from Lisa, from La Troisième (thanks a lot!). Lisa and I met through our blogs, thanks to a competition that we were both taking part in. One day we decided to meet up for coffee in central London and discovered we have so much in common!




The rules are:


1. Nominate 15 others for the award and inform them with a comment on each of their blogs.

2. Create a post for the Versatile Blogger Award.

3. In the same post, thank the blogger who nominated you in a post with a link back to their blog.

4. In the same post, share 7 completely random pieces of information about yourself.

5. In the same post, include this set of rules.



Here are the 7 random things about me:


1. I have so many manias.


2. Love perfumes and have a very good scent memory (kind of recognising perfumes of people passing by in the street)


3. I can count with both hands (which means, less than 10 people) how many friends and family know about this blog.


4. I cannot leave the house without nail polish, I feel naked.


5. I have lost count of how many shoes I own


6. Never played any sports as a kid/teenager (neither right now, not even the gym)


7. I love reading, and I try to read in Spanish, Italian and English; one book in each language, one after the other.


I nominate to this prize anyone that owns a blog and feels like telling 7 random things about themselves!

[Black is Black]*


Remember this H&M dress that I showed you in this post? The whole look really changes with this knitted jacket on top right? Hopefully the cold weather will be leaving London little by little and I'll be able to wear lighter clothes.


Also wanted to show you my 2 latest buys from Ebay. These sunglasses that I mentioned before that look pretty much like the ones from Prada and the nail ring.


Have a lovely weekend everyone!

¿Os acordáis de este vestido de H&M que os enseñé en este post? Cambia mucho con esta chaqueta de punto por encima ¿verdad? Espero que el frío vaya abandonando Londres poco a poco para poder poner ropa algo más ligera.


también quería enseñaros mis 2 últimas compras de Ebay: estas gafas que ya había mencionado que son prácticamente iguales a las de Prada y el anillo de la uña.


¡Buen fin de semana a todos!

[In Need Of; Flower print trousers]*





Totally need a pair of flower print trousers, preferably with big printed flowers rather than small, but who know what I may get in the end. Is not just about liking the print and its colours, but also about my body fitting perfectly in them, which for trousers, is not an easy thing, trust me...


Any advice? Any nice ones in a shop that I'm not taking into account?

Necesito unos pantalones con estampado floral con urgencia, con las flores grandes mejor que pequeñas, pero a saber con qué me quedo al final. Ya no sólo se trata de que me gusten el estampado y los colores, sino de que mi cuerpo encaje a la perfección, y creedme, tratándose de pantalones no es tarea fácil...


¿Algún consejo? ¿Alguno bonito en una tienda que se me escapa?

[Neon Pink & Full Afternoon Tea]*





This was a lovely day spent between Notting Hill and a fabulous full afternoon tea at Bea's of Bloomsbury (on their shop in the One New Change mall behind St Paul's cathedral). I highly recommend this place to treat someone for an afternoon tea, but you need to book in advance by email!

Este fue un día estupendo entre Notting Hill y un fabuloso tè a la inglesa en Bea's of Bloomsbury (en su local del centro comercial One New Change, detrás de la catedral de St Paul's). Éste sitio es altamente recomendable para sorprender a alguien con un tè tìpico a la inglesa, pero hay que reservar con antelación por email.
