Santa Tell Me

It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

Christmas. There’s quite a lot of love-hate relationship going on with it. Worry not, I am on the loving side.

Christmas is one of my favourite times of the year. Everybody is up for having a celebration, the streets of London turn even prettier with the Christmas lights and despite clients nagging you with a gazillion things do’s (as if the world is ending), I am generally in a happier mood.

I know it shouldn’t be like this, but Christmas feels like the best opportunity to spend time with your loved ones: family, friends and relatives. And that’s why I am so happy! I am surrounded by the people I like the most, having a great time together. What’s not to like?

Of course, that involves a lot of eating and drinking and generally speaking not much sleeping. But hey, I like to think we’ll be forever young.

On one of our first Christmas outings in the city, we decided to catch up on the famous attractions of this Christmas 2018 and I think the star this year is the private member’s club Annabel’s. I was well impressed by their stunt over Chelsea Flower Show in spring, but this time they have outdone themselves. Look at it, it’s unmissable!

As a celebration of all my favorite things I came up with quite an outfit, impersonating my fave Disney movie - Alice in Wonderland! Ok, maybe a mixture between Alice and the Red Riding Hood. What do you guys think? What do you see?

What can I say, I love stars. I love red and I love stilettos! And I definitely love my new ROC London bag, resembling the Vinyl Hermes Kelly from 1997.

Coke ZERO, please

We recently had to move out of our pretty home in Dalston, and I had to go through the tedious task of going through your wardrobe and deciding what to keep and what to chuck. TOUGH! There was no doubt on this Coca-Cola skirt, to keep!

This was probably one of the first “designer” items I acquired (in my teens!) while I lived in Barcelona and I think it is still as cool as ever. I’m a suker for coca-cola, a great advocate of its advertising, and a lover of red! Hard trick.

Jazz-it up with some black boots and a hat, and you’ve got your outfit sorted! Midi skirts always make an outfit much more cooler, even for shorties like moi :)

As winter comes creeping us again, I just remembered my encounter with Tomi a couple of weeks ago. We decided to go for a walk around London Bridge, as it has one of the most idilic and iconic views of the city, but DANG were we cold! 

Of course, one always dresses to impress, which meant not only that I was freezing to death, but also that I had to pretend I wasn't! Fashion comes with a price, after all.

Sunday it was, and as my new year resolution, my feet gets a rest once a week, on Sundays. No heels and more sneakers, that is. And yes, I succumbed to the VANS craze. What can I say, the look old-skool and fun. Plus they are comfy! I paired the skater look with a chic baby blue jacket from Le Mont St Michel that I got on my recent trip to Paris. Have I told you I love mixing up casual and dress-up pieces?

HAPPY NEW YEAR, CARELESS READERS!

Everyday that passes I believe more that #AgeIsJustANumber. Probably to my benefit, since I am turning 30 this year, ha! 

I think of fashion, and I feel the same rule applies. Come to think of it, we are actually going backwards. My beloved 90s are everywhere I go, and it seems to be a trend that is here to stay, at least for a while. 

So, I decided to sit back, relax, and take it all in. After all, that's my era, and I could care less about what people say, 90s were awesome. Logos? Check. Mom Jeans? Check. Lolita Sunglasses? Why not. More Logos? Hell yes! Result: what you have below.

Autumn is here, and despite what everybody says, I quite like it. There’s fall leaves everywhere (have you walk through a park yet? SO FUN!), lots of pumpkin and chestnut dishes and warm cider is starting to make its appearances. YIKES! Not to mention those cosy nights at the pub…C’mon guys, what’s not to like?

As I was touring the streets of West London over the weekend (which seems so far now that I live in Dalston), we passed through Kynance Mews and couldn’t help but take some nice pictures there. I envy (and pitty) the people who live in such beautiful places, do you think they get annoyed by the amount of people standing at their door taking photos? I wonder.

I am enjoying taking on more relaxed looks lately. Less high heels and more kitten heels, jeans and a comfy shirt. Always Frida Nipple, though. That does not change.

In any case, walking around these clean white streets reminded me how pretty this side of the city is. I miss it sometimes.

Braveheart

People don't like to talk about things that make them sad. I am the first one to admit it. You'll catch me in very little moments where I am not switched on 100%, like a fairy flying from one place to the other. 

Everybody is entitled to feel anxious, scared, sad, upset. We live in a world where fitting in is difficult, specially since all we do these days works around social recognition/ feeling accepted, even if that means not being yourself to achieve it. 

Don't let what others say ruin your day. As William Wallace once said (yes, this is BRAVEHEART OK!): Your heart is free, have the courage to follow it. Feeling like saying I love you to someone? Do it. Don't be scared. Feeling like crying cause something has gone wrong? Let it all out. You Only Live Once, my friend. Better Live It Fully.

P.S: Yes, I am being very dramatic (my period is coming) but wearing this Patriot look made me think of Braveheart and all of a sudden those inspirational quotes came to mind. So yes, LOVE Y'ALL!!

If there is a sport that I am passionate about (apart from Badminton, obvs) is skating and skate boarding. I have never been a sports girl, so you won’t find a pro in me, but surely it is a funnier way to go from one place to another? I remember my trips to school music in my skateboard very fondly, I must admit.

Truth is though, since I moved to London I’ve barely touched my skate. The streets of London kind of freak me sometimes: there’s far too many cars and bumpy roads, and you never know what can happen*

Nevertheless, I recently got a very nice delivery from Weekday, which has recently open its first flagship in London, and I thought I would go to the skatepark in Southbank. Obvs, I dressed up for the occasion.

It is funny how the weather can affect so much the way you dress. A tiny slip colourful dress that I would never in London is totally something I would wear back home in Barcelona. Equally, it wouldn’t cross my mind to wear all-black-everything in Barcelona but it is practically my uniform in London.

And so I thought, let’s break the barriers (I am VERY daring, I know). I took a beach dress and put on my Christian Dior under/outerwear and off we go! Add a bomber jacket to it and it’s a killer.

*Bare in mind I come from a beach town and I use to skate by the beach walkway!
