The weekend in photos

I'm lucky to have great friends, one of them is Eli, one of my longest friends and this weekend we spent it together in London. We had a long girls weekend, long overdue and it was really nice. While the weather didn't especially smile to us we did lots of London classic: Portobello Market where w enjoyed the cute little colorfoul houses, vintage silverwear and jewellery and yummy Pizza; we also wandered around the shops and flowers at Columbia Flower Market and enjoyed lots of shopping (one of our fave thing to do together!). Yummy food, fab city and best friends is the very best friend to enjoy the weekend! Thank you Eli for brightening my days!

Sunday Outfit

It's definitely been a while since the last outfit post, while it won't always be possible to have one on Mondays, I want to try to start doing them relatively regularly. What I'm going to do now that the weather is getting slowly a bit better and days are longer is to take pictures on other days and not only Sundays and maybe snipets of what I wear and not full posts, let's see! 
I had a really great weekend, my best friend Eli came over from Barcelona to spend  a long weekend with me and we roamed all over London. I'll show you more of what we have been doing tomorrow! Meanwhile I'm sending you to this Asos jacket page to check out the jacket I'm wearing, cutest little thing ever, the photos don't do it justice! If you want to add a pop of colour to your outfit get it, it will cheer you up on any grey day!

Ms Leibovitz home

This is not super news but I saw it recently and loved it so much I wanted to share. It's Annie Leibovitz West Village home up for sale. The impressive home is a compound formed of three town houses, one for work, one to live and one for guest, wow this is what I call treating your guest and making them feel at home! What I love the most is the incredible gorgeous green living vertical garden that surrounds the fa├žade  a real beauty. The house is for sale for $29 millions, anyone interested?

Ideal Closet

This is one of those outfits that somehow seems like it doesn't work but in my mind it works really well. The denim skirt is figure hugging and adds a touch of perfect sassiness to a more traditional looking outfit. The colourful pops add the fun element and the bold accesories make it a bit cutting edge. I love the jacket, perfect pattern and shape and those Sperrys in gold are on my wish list!

The retro bikini

I walked by a Topshop earlier today, popped it and went straight to the swimsuit section, I was looking for a specific bikini: a high waisted retro-ish bikini. I tried it and unfortunately it didn't work for me but I still love the look. I think it looks really pretty on slender girls, it accentuates the lovely waist and gives a very classic yet sexy look. 

This photo by Lou Mora of his wife Sarah is probably my favourite look. It's a Mara Hoffman little number and unfortunately I haven't found it anywhere this year or anything similar. 

Luckily for those of you on the lookout for this kind of look, there are many gorgeous versions.

Little desks and a slow comeback

I saw this little picture on the IKEA blog yesterday and make me come out of my lethargic blog state. It reminded me of the time I was looking for a tine desk for myself, I never found it but I still love the idea of having a little space of my own at home where I can have all my gadgets and seat down and blog. 

IKEA blue small desk

I have decided to make an extra effort and come back to the blog world. These past three or so years I have been blogging have been an incredible journey for me. It helped me get though a difficult time when I was unemployed  and hopefully it might help me get through a difficult period I'm going through at the moment. Hope you are still here and looking forward to lots of new posts. Might drop off some days but I will do my best to get it going. Thanks for waiting for me xxx

I also love the idea of a console/little desk/bedside table, very functional

If you'll excuse me I will be taking some days off blogging  to deal with some personal stuff that has come my way. Hopefully when I come back I will be able to see things from a different perspective. See you soon xx

Two Greek Villas

I'm off to Barcelona to enjoy a bit of much needed sun, yummy food and time with family and friends. Can't wait, it has been cold, humid, rainy and grey in London for the past months and the prospect of a change excites me. Speaking about sun and holidays, when I was young I went with my mom to Antiparos a couple of times. A small island in the Cyclades, it has sandy beaches, pebbled white streets and an incredible relaxing vibe. I know now is much trendier than back then and a lot of villas have been built over the time, like Ella I and Ella II marketed by this company called The Greek Villas where you can daydream for a while. I'm in love.

Ella II is just as striking and beautifully done. The bedrooms are my fave I think, I love the iron beds, the simplicity of the decor and all the earthy beautiful colours the owners have used. Perfect interiors to match an incredible exterior.

Ideal Closet

Have you seen the Zara new collection? I still haven't had a chance to look at it properly, but my eye felt onto this beautifully printed clutch. I love the idea of smaller bags lately, that allow you to only carry essential and feel a bit of extra freedom (even more so if they are crossbody ones!). The boots in this outfit adde the little edge to the tailor electric blue trousers. I love the tailored look worn for a more casual look.

In my radar: Spell & the Gypsy

I loved the feature the Glitter Guide did on Samantha Wills. I love her and while I wouldn't be able to pull out her style I think she always looks amazing. On one of the shoots she was wearing this super cool jumpsuit, I did a bit of research and came across the brand, Spell and the Gypsy Collective. I love the vibe of this Australian brand and the styling behind all they do. I fell in love with many of their pieces but especially these two. 

The second piece I felt in love with is this leopard print summer dress.

A florist workshop: Brumalis

Happy Monday! Today I bring you a lovely studio/showroom of two young florists in Madrid, a small floral heaven called Brumalis. This photos were published on Vogue.es and I thought you would enjoy seeing a beautiful place full to brim with creativity. Every little corner is full of colourful blooms, a fabulous place to work without any doubt. The studio is located inside Federica & Co, a garden in Madrid full of little gorgeous stores, creativity and beauty.
