Wedding Wednesday: A London engagement by Marianne Taylor

England and London are in full celebrations swing, the Queen is celebrating her Diamond Jubilee on Tuesday and the whole city is buzzing and ready to celebrate. And with that in mind I thought it would be fun these days to blog about all British! Just like this gorgeous engagement session by the unique Marianne Taylor who can make even the greyest London day look incredibly gorgeous. I love this couple, the way they are dressed, so elegant and classy, and the background choices, classic London landmarks like the Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, stunning. London can be so charming.

Life through my Iphone

We all love Instagram, don't you? Here are some snaps from this past weekend. My lovely friend where here from Paris and we walked all over London during one of the most gorgeous weekends ever. London is stunning when the sun is shining, the light is incredibly bright and all the colours come up. And did you all se my apartment on The Everygirl?

I'm adiaryoflovely and I take pictures around London, want to follow me?

Sunday Outfit

Happy Monday lovelies, and happy day off to those across the pond. How was your weekend? Mine was the best, incredibly sunny and warm (London has never been this pretty!) and busy busy busy! Anna and Natalia were here visiting from Paris and if you follow me on Instagram you know we did an amazing London tour. I think I have never walked that much but it was fantastic having my friends here and sharing memories and laughs.

In The Everygirl

This is a Thank you Post. A "I'm very grateful" post. An overdue post. I don't think I have ever thanked you, the person who reads tis blog every day, the old, new, constant, occasional reader. Thank you, thank you for coming, for reading and supporting me. 
Some of you might have seen I am featured on The Everygirl today and I wanted to thank you for your words of kindness, I was unsure of sharing my home and putting it out there in the open but you have definitely  put any fear I had to shade. So thanks for that. And here are all my other thanks. Yes! This is THE thank you post! 
Big thanks to Lauren who came home on the Saturday we had the shoot to help me with the styling. She couldn't be any better friend if she tried! 
Thanks to Sarah Hogan who took the most beautiful photographs ever, she is fun, super sweet and a super talented photographer! 
Thanks to Alaina and Danielle, who long before they launched their baby, they trusted me with their secret and asked me if I wanted to be part of it. I'm honoured. Women like you inspire me.
Finally my eternal gratitude to my friends and boyfriend for their support and to my parents for their unconditional love, thank you, you make my life more beautiful. 
And for those of you who don't know The Everygirl (run! it's that good!) or haven't seen the feature, I hope you check it here.

The spike bracelet

I have been looking at this spike bracelet from Asos. I love it layered with lots of other bracelets, you know I'm a bracelet junkie, but I think it would also look great bt its own, it's that brave! I love it's a bit punk but has just the right amount of edge, you know you don't want to overdue it, right? 
What do you think? To get or not to get?

Wedding Wednesday: Cortana

What do you love most of wedding dresses? I love them luxurious, floaty, made of fabrics that will take your breath away. And Cortana mades that exactly. They make dresses that will make this one important day magical. Rosa Esteva is the designer behind Cortana, Mallorcan by birth, Barcelonian by adoption; she creates incredibly elegant handmade dresses that flow like air. They are not necessarily your typical bridal dress, what do you think would you dare?

Sunday Outfit

Hello from the incredibly moody Barcelona, you would be forgiven for thinking it's London! Unfortunately the weather hasn't been smiling at me, and while it was really sunny and hot because I arrived it has turned grey and rainy. Nut enough of weather complaints, being home is always nice no matter what! And Barcelona never ceases to surprise me, it has to be one of the most beautiful cities in the world. I might be biased, yes, but people talk about London, Paris as their favourite cities, the prettiest cities, my vote goes to Barcelona!

Wedding Wednesday: Colour Nude for guests

Wedding season is upon us once more and I'm pretty sure all of you have at least one wedding to attend this year, am I right? Have you found the dress you are going to wear? The guest dress quest can be one serious business, there are so many unsaid rules and myths to abide by (or not!) one can get pretty lost quite quickly! I was looking for a dress the other day when I came across Colour Nude on Casilda se Casa (my fave spanish wedding blog!). Colour Nude is the brainchild of a very young spanish designer from Sevilla and it's style is very feminine, subtle and elegant, flowy textures and vivid colours that will withstand time and trends. A winner in my book!

Ancient Greek Sandals

Everywhere I look I see these sandals! I'm obsessing! While Greece is undergoing one of its hardest social and economical periods it is refreshing to see that there is still lots (yes, there is!) of talent in my beautiful country. Ancient Greek Sandals (I love the name) is the brainchild of a young designer who designed for Louis Vuitton and Balenciaga, Christina Martini and her business partner have created a beautiful collection of handmade sandals that will definitely take you from the beach to the bars. Perfect for summer in Greece!

Check all the stunning models at Barneys, Matches, Shopbop, Luisa Via Roma, SaksNet-a-Porter

Monday hello, as always you are here way to quick! It has been a lovely weekend, the sun has finally been out in London and the temperatures have been a bit more forgiving than what we were used to.

Spaghetti alla Vongole

Spaghetti with clams is one of my favourite dishes, my mom makes a yummy recipe and I really look forward to having it when I go back to Barcelona. They are tasty, and look so good on the eye too however I know they are not to everyone's taste, I think it's the clams, they are not everyone's cup of tea however I urge you to give them a go, look how good they look! There's several good recipes, a very drunken one on Design Sponge, and Jamie Oliver also has  great one. I must get some clams and get on with i, my mom will have to teach me the how to!
