The after party

The party based on tea, cakes and jewellery ended with a lot of success of the jewellery and the cakes but instead of tea,  we decided to be a bit more sophisticated and drink, Martini. I guess if you are a guy, this would sound like the perfect nightmare. But the truth is that we all have a lot of fun and cool chats...girls just want to have fun!

The above bits and bobs are my designs, all sold out by the way, but contact me if you are interested to see more.

Saturday, the T-party

Many of you know about my new project.  I am  finally discovering what  to do with my spare time and with my creativity!, sorry this might sound a bit pretentious... Well Ana, to the point I am designing and at the same time, making my own line of accessories.
Basically I  am getting a lot of inspiration from all the things  I like and I see around, from the fashion magazines,shops(any kind!) art galleries, my friends, films..

Well, I wanted to say thank you to all my friends for encourage me to carry on with my “bits and bobs” and for making me believe that “these bits” are “beautiful and cute” thanks guys!...and more now, you the point...writing it´s never been my this Saturday we will have a Tea Party at home, we are going to enjoy fantastic cakes and everyone will be able to purchase one of my “bits and bobs” this is a dream!!

I will post you some pictures over the weekend!...I hope it goes well!!

I have always like fashion  but I am not a fashionista and I don´t follow the trend s but I really like what the fashion offers you, the ideas the colours, the textures, the designs, the glamour, the make up everything related is for me just fun, I like  the whole eclecticism and the freedom that it can  gives you to mix whatever you like! Perhaps what I really dislike is the world around it, sometimes it´s like some kind of competition showing who is the coolest dressed and who´s got the better shoes or the best designers dress!

I really enjoy taking pictures of  fashion shops. Some of them like this one in Soho,  NY .It is not just  about the clothes it is the composition around, it works perfect and elegant, just beautiful!. Some shops have really inspiring windows, for outfits and for colour combinations.

Hi bambi!

I found this picture today in my archive. I remember when i saw this lovely "bambi",sorry i call this picture "the bambi"... It was actually in Stockholm and i was there with a good friend of mine,we both love it!it was there in the middle of nowhere. We were just hanging around in one of the most trendy areas of the city , Sodermalm, where everyone looks like "hi, i am an artist and i am naturally cool, yes, i was born cool" but in the most relaxingl way,if you get what i mean?...Swedish people are just the royalty of the style, and they got it!and if i have another life i want to be sweedish.

Melancholy & Infinity sadness in Galicia

As Billy said it once:

"...i'll make the effort, love can last forever
graceful swans of never topple to the earth
tomorrow's just an excuse
and you can make it last, forever you
you can make it last, forever you "

Let´s go higher!

I love the mix of materials, the different shapes, the sky and the contrast in this picture! Everything works very peaceful and in harmony!

It is very difficult these days to see blue sky in London and i can only say that in this picture it works so well!..and i miss it!

All the right friends!

I took this photograph a couple of years ago when i visited Stockholm. I love that city, everything there is just so cool, the people, the coffe shops, the vintage shops, the art galleries...just cool, BUT...what it really makes this place cool, is that they are natural...just efforless!

Just like honey!

I have seen this lady recently trapped in a window in one of the most fetishistic sex shops in Soho... The West End never stops, always full of people, noisy, dirty, i really don´t know if i can actually say that it is full of "joy"...but what i can definitely say is that this lady really can show me what the West End is!...I am sure if you have walk around this area before on a Saturday night, you are with me.

Hazme un sitio

Esta semana ha sido difícil encontrar algo nuevo que poner en el blog.
La verdad que no he estado mucho por ahí, empieza a hacer frío, los días son ya un poco más cortos y encima no hay tanta luz.

Pero ayer no hizo falta la luz para disfrutar de estos dibujos oscuros y pelín malévolos. Estos personajes se encuentran, cubriendo los muros de una nueva construcción en el Soho y alguien los ha utilizado para exponer su obra y también para darles un poco de vida.

Esto es una de las geniales cosas de esta ciudad, que hay sitio para todos y todo!

John in Brick Lane

I could not resist to take this picture!

This is in Brick Lane. What a colourful area to explore if you are in London...creativity all over the place!, sometimes, personally i think a little bit...too muc, but fun!

You can find something interesting in every corner...even a fantastic bagel shop!

Siete años en Londres

Ayer hizo site años que me vine a vivir a esta ciudad tan maravillosa. Para celebrarlo nada mejor que acudir a la firma del libro de Scott Schuman mas conocido como The Sartorialist. Su blog es el más popular en estos momentos sobre moda, basado en fotos de gente estilosa, única, estampas maravillosas de gente en la ciudad. La verdad es que le sigo desde abril, y le admiro mucho. Pero ayer algo pasó que hizo que mi admiración dejase de ser tanta admiración.

La cita se dió a las 18.00 pm en los grandes almacenes Liberty. En la cola estabamos todos esperádole, los devotos y los simplemente admiradores por un trabajo bien hecho llevábamos nada menos que dos repente te das cuenta que todo empieza a ser poco natural. Parecía que nadie había salido de casa sin al menos pasar unas horas delante del espejo y estudiando el modelo que le iba a representar. La moda, que es ¿ser moderno hoy en día?¿ser estiloso?¿cool o fashion?. Para mi todo menos lo que vi. Gente ficticia que en lugar de apreciar un libro precioso y un blog estupendo con fotografías llenas de carácter acabó siendo un como dicen aqui un auténtico "show off"

El de la foto es mi libro y está firmado para eso me pase 2 horas el la cola. Seguiré leyendo su blog pero con una perspectiva de la moda totalmente distinta... como dice en su libro no es lo que vistes sino como lo vistes.

Sometimes too much glamour can be very difficult to carry!

Mickey se viste de Paul Smith

La tienda de Paul Smith hoy en Covent Garden con cojín de Mickey Mouse en su escaparate central.

Paul Smith tiene una coleccion muy bonita esta temporada para hombre aunque yo nunca he sido muy fan...pero es que la moda británica vine pisando fuerte esta temporada, reinvindicando los sesenta y celebrando 25 años de moda británica en su London fashion week!

She is a glamour girl

The weather has been terrible the last two days here in London, I have been very busy so it has been very difficult to see something interesting or inspiring to post.

For that reason i decided to check my archive. I found this photo that I took a few years ago in New York. I love everything about it but specially the composition in black and white and the beautiful feather skirt. I would love to wear it and dance!
I think a good song for that would be this one from Chicks on Speed!

Love will tear us appart

A great mind had the fantastic idea of adding to this Evening Standard stand this little stencil of a little cupido.I love to see two angels fighting; are they fighting for love?

What a beautiful masterpiece! and what a romantic image!

Thank you spotting this Mr X!

She is in fashion

...She is strung out on a TV dream
And she's the taste of the gasoline
And she's as similar as you can get
To the shape of a cigarette...

This photograph makes me think about this great song by Suede

Album: Head music, 1999 Nude records.

The Hayward Gallery

The Hayward Gallery is one of the iconic buildings in Southbank, along with the Royal Festival Hall and Queen Elizabeth. It is my favourite. I love the way it looks from every perspective, like if it has three buildings in one. The mixed of materials and the shades are so beautiful, like cubes piled one of top of the other.

Un segundo premio un poco particular

Ver este graffiti me hizo pensar: "Sentado esperando a que llames, rezando por que des una señal los días cada vez mas mas despacio y solamente puedo esperar..."

Para mi sera siempre mi canción favorita de Los Planetas.

Es la hora del té

La hora del té para los ingleses es la hora mas importante del día. Ese momento en el trabajo donde todo el mundo se para cuando alguien comenta, ¿quiere alguien un té?.

Asi tomaban hoy el té por la tarde este grupo de amigos delante de la National Gallery. Música y estilo años cincuenta y una furgoneta en medio plantada sirviendo pasteles y té.
A mi me gusta a las 4 p.m con leche y dos de azúcar.

El tunel de Waterloo

El año pasado visité por primera vez el tunel de Waterloo dedicado al arte del graffiti aqui en Londres. Trato de ir a menudo pues lo murales se renuevan rapido y el ambiente es estupendo; musica, botes vacios de pintura de espray, y gente como yo que al pasar nos quedamos con la boca abierta sin saber donde fotografiar. Algún Banksy ha quedado por alguna esquina, el truco esta en saber encontralo.

Desde luego el tunel de Waterloo esta en mi Top ten.

Póngame el naranja por favor

El Central Saint Giles, es un nuevo conjunto de oficinas, viviendas, restaurantes, tiendas y cafés que se esta construyendo en Londres bajo la direccion de Enzo Piano.
Está situado justo detrás de Tottenham Court Road.

Su colory su belleza los hacen llamativos a los ojos de los paseantes, nadie puede resistirse y no mirar.

En el centro de Londres ahora tenemos edificios con alma.

Recomiendo la página web:

Yo quiero el naranja.

Looking at someone´s desk

This is possibly the most interesting desk i have ever seen. It really got my attention while i was walking around in Canterbury. I am not sure if someone works there, or used to but it´s definetely full of charm.

All the mess in the room was placed with elegance, with no intention of creating chaos but perfect... I loved to take a look at it letting imagination run free...
