Shopping & Gifts.

Apart from the famous ASOS bags, this past month, I bought a few more things and got one care package more from Argentina.
The first two dresses are from Vero Moda, one half the price, the other from the new collection that I already wore here; both are beautiful and the quality is great!
An ivory tulle skirt and lace sweater from wholesale-dress.net; both are very pretty but the quality is not very good. Sadly I have to fix the skirt since it doesn't fit properly due to my big hip. Apart from that I'm not buying from this shop anymore because their shipping fee became ridiculous.
A red bag from the japanese shop dreamV, which I bought to replace this one I'm selling. And last but not least, a tee from Zara and an oversized sweater from Bershka, 10€ both; 10€ that I was saving to buy Essence nail-polishes, but I was so mad I didn't know where the shop that sells Essence was, that I spent them on the tee and the sweater, hahaha!
And this time, the care package was sent by Ants, a friend from Argentina, one day I was whining on facebook how I missed alfajores, that she told me she would sent some, I still have to send her some sweet things from here (I didn't forget, baby! <3)

Aparte de los ya famosos bolsos de ASOS, este mes compré unas cositas y recibí un paquetito de regalo desde Argentina.
Los vestidos son los dos de Vero Moda, uno que lo compré en rebajas y a mitad de precio, y otro de la nueva colección, que ya usé aquí. Los dos son hermosos y de una gran calidad!
Un sweater y una falda de wholesale-dress.net, que si bien son super bonitos, las calidad nos es la mejor. Lamentablemente tengo que arreglar la falda porque no me queda bien gracias a mis caderotas. Pero mas allá de eso, no compraré mas aquí porque el coste de envío se encareció muchisimo.
Un bolso rojo de la tienda Japonesa dreamV, que compré para reemplazar este que estoy vendiendo. Y por último una camiseta de Zara y un sweater oversized de Bershka, 10€ las dos cosas, 10€ que estaba guardando para esamltes de uñas Essence, pero que al no saber donde quedaba la tienda en donde venden la marca, me enojé y me los gasté en la camiseta y el sweater, jajaja!
Y esta vez, el paquetito regalo vino de parte de mi amiga Ants de Argentina, que despues de leerme quejandome en facebook sobre como extraño los alfajores Argentinos, me envió unos cuantos, todavía tengo que enviarle yo a ella chuches y golosinas Españolas (no me he olvidado <3)

{ LOOKBOOK } Only air, that old breath

♪♫ "You made me smile with my heart"
You made me beg for admission cards
You will never stay
In my home on my way
Forlorn from today


♪♫ Fall Foliage - Soap&Skin ♫♪

This week wasn't that cold, and it was so nice being able to take off the jackets and coats, a sweater was enough to stay warm. I hope this lasts, because even if I love autumn and winter so much, lately I found myself craving for spring, maybe that's because we don't get much of it here and from winter we go directly to summer, skipping spring's mild weather.

Speaking of it, I realized I lack of shoes for spring and summer, and this is really giving me a headache since I can never seem to find the right shoes for me on physical stores (affordable ones), because after a few disappointments regarding size, I want to stop buying shoes online unless I'm 100% sure about the size (which I never am).

. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

Esta última semana no ha hecho demasiado frío, y la verdad es que es tan agradable no tener que depender de un abrigo para mantenerte calentita, tan solo basta con un sweater. Y espero que dure, porque a pesar de que soy fanática total del otoño e invierno, últimamente he estado deseando que llegue la primavera, y probablemente sea porque donde vivo pasamos del invierno al verano, saltándonos el buen tiempo primaveral!

Y hablando de la primavera, me he dado cuenta que no tengo zapatos para la época mas templada, y me está volviendo loca ya que nunca encuentro zapatos que me gusten y a un precio razonable en tiendas físicas, porque quiero dejar de comprar zapatos online, luego de las desilusiones, con respecto al número, que me he llevado con las últimas compras.

And I think to myself, what a wonderful world...

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world.

The colours of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They're really saying I love you.

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They'll learn much more than I'll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world.

Anita & Nelly are my grannys, they are twins and the most wonderful women I ever met in my whole life; and today is their birthday, so I gathered a few photos and made this collage as my gift to them. Such beautiful souls! <3
Anita passed 17 years ago, but there is not even one day I don't think of her and miss her, she was my second mother and I love her so much!
And it's been a few years since I last saw Nelly, and I miss her, too and love hearing the things my mum tells me about her, she's so funny!

I wish you both a Happy Birthday!

{ LOOKBOOK } Here I am, here I am, when will someone understand

♪♫ We dug these holes we crawled into
Now they're my home
Now here I cannot feel the wind
Can't feel the rain?

♪♫ The Reeling (Bubblegum Remix) - Passion Pit ♫♪

Today the day was so sunny and the light of the sun called me to go out and enjoy, and since we still have two days of vacation, we wanted to make the most of it; so my son and I went for a walk in the forest. It was cold, but the sun was really warm so we could brave the cold breeze.
When we arrived home I started feeling under the weather, my eyes were crying (and still are) because of the wind, and I feel as if had run a marathon. I hope tomorrow I feel better because I really enjoyed today's walk and wanted to go for another one.
Everytime I wear this skirt I remember what a deal I got for it, 500yens because it had a few little stains that I could clean without a problem, plus it's so versatile!
Also, if you take a look, I took a chance (again) with that fancy nail art that I could never get done; I won't say I succeeded on it looking great, but it looks quite decent, don't you think?



Skirt: Emily Temple cute.
Top: Bershka.
Cardigan: Pinky Girls.

Bag: Street Market.
Shoes: Sechuna.

Beauty Boxes

Yesterday, while browsing the internet I came across something new for me, a really cool idea; boxes with 5 miniatures of beauty products (sometimes real size), that you can get every month for 10€ monthly.
I thought the idea was great, so I started researching, and found that by now, there are three boxes in the market in Spain, plus two more that are in development right now.

These three are: Goingchic, Glossybox & Glamourum. Like I said before, this is something I didn't know existed, so I don't really know which one is better, but I think I know the differences between them; the brands that collaborate with each of the boxes.
So let's see what these boxes can offer!

· · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · ·

Ayer, mientras vagaba por internet me topé con algo definitivamente nuevo para mi; cajas que contienen 5 miniaturas de productos de belleza (a veces vienen tamaño normal), y que las puedes conseguir una vez al mes pagando 10€ mensuales.
La idea me resulta genial, por eso empece a informarme, y al parecer, hasta ahora hay tres cajas en el mercado Español, mas otras dos que aun están en desarrollo.

Estas tres son: Goingchic, Glossybox, & Glamourum. Como dije antes, esto es algo que no tenía idea que existía, así que realmente no se cual de ellas es la mejor, pero creo saber alguna diferencia entre ellas; las marcas que colaboran con cada una.
Así que veamos lo que estas cajas pueden ofrecernos!


This box is the newest of the three, its first box is from December 2011. /
Esta es la última caja que salió al mercado, y la primera es de Diciembre 2011.

Here are the brands you can find inside this box.
Subscribe, 10€ monthly, you'll get the box at the beginning of the month.

Estas son las marcas que puedes encontrar en la caja.
Suscríbete, 10€ mensuales, y la caja llega a principio de mes.


The first Glossybox is from September 2011. /
La primer Glossybox se lanzó en Septiembre 2011

These are the brands you can find inside this box.
I don't know about Goingchic box, but when you subscribe to Glossybox they ask you a series of question that tell them which are the best products for us, which I find very useful.
Again, subscribe, pay 10€ monthly, and at the end of the month you get the box.

Estas son las marcas que puedes encontrar dentro de la caja.
No se como funciona la suscripción de Goingchic, pero en Glossybox te formulan unas ciertas preguntas en las que se dan una idea de tu perfil para saber que enviarte luego.
Mas de lo mismo, suscríbete, paga 10€ mensuales, y a final de mes te llega la cajita.


Glamourum is the oldest of the boxes, they started back in June 2011. /
Glamourum es la caja mas antigua en España, y empezaron en Junio de 2011.

Here are the brands you can find inside this box.
And just like the Glossybox, the create a profile of you to send you the right box for you.
Subscribe, pay 10€ monthly, and receive the box at the end of the month.

Estas son las marcas que puedes encontrar.
Al igual que Glossybox te hacen las preguntas en la suscripción para que recibas la caja que mejor se adapte a tí.
Suscríbete, paga 10€ mensuales, y recibes la caja a final de mes.

I know there are lots of these boxes and more around the world, so please if you'd like share your experience with me, since I really, really want one. And if you're from Spain and you receive any of these or can recommend one for me, it'd be really helpful and I'd really appreciate it!

· · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · · ·

Sé que hay muchas de estas cajas y mas por todo el mundo, así que por favor, si quieren compartan su experiencia conmigo, porque tengo muchísimas ganas de hacerme con alguna. Y si eres de España y sueles recibir una de estas o puedes recomendarme alguna, me ayudaría y te lo agradecería muchísimo.
