My trip to London | Part 1

As you may or may not know I recently traveled to London for a little bit more than a week with one of my best friends (the blonde one) and her sister. This was my first time there and I'm in love with the city. It's very crowded but you can definitely enjoy it anyway.

When we arrived we decided to visit the most popular places such as the Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, London Eye and surrounding areas.

As you can see it was a very cloudy day which is not very nice for pictures, but at least it didn't rain (that day).

I'm going to have a few more posts showing you what I've seen and done in London and, of course, I'll be posting a haul with what I bought (which wasn't much, surprisingly).


Coming up: British Museum, walking around, M&M World, Harry Potter studio tour, parks, Sherlock Holmes museum, Portobello Road, Buckingham Palace.

Outfit of the day | Beach time!

First of all I want to tell you that right now; well actually when you read this, I'm going to be in London! That's why I'm not going to have as many posts up until the 30th-ish. I apologize for that but I'm trying to schedule some so at least I have something up.

I went to the beach with my family and I initially wanted to show you what I wore each day, but since it was all pretty casual I decided not to. Anyway, I still have a couple outfits to show you and this is one of them.

Tank top - Zara
Top - Forever 21
Shorts - Missguided
Hat - H&M
Bracelets - H&M
Necklace - Marc Jacobs

Inspired by: Kylie Jenner

On my latest "Inspired by" post I did Kendall Jenner and I told you I was going to be doing one for Kylie as well. Here it is, and I hope you like it.

I did three different casual looks for her because I really like her day to day style. She wears a lot of black and, as you can see, I based all three outfits on that color. I also see her wearing studs on her clothes often, so I included some studded pieces as well.

Inspired by: Kylie Jenner

OUTFIT 1:     Top   //   Shorts   //   Lita boots
OUTFIT 2:     Top   //   Shorts   //   Heeled booties
OUTFIT 3:     Top   //   Shorts   //   Combat boots

Who else do you want to see on this "Inspired by" series?

Outfit of the day at a castle

As I promised last Sunday on my weekly photos post, I went to a castle (although it was closed) and I got some pictures from the outside. I didn't just want to randomly post photos of a castle, so I kind of wanted it to be an outfit post. The thing is, my sister was taking the photos and she doesn't really know what an outfit post looks like, so here's what I got:

Tank top - Zara
Top - H&M
Shorts - Forever 21
Sandals - Forever 21
Bag - Lefties
Sunglasses - Topshop

Inspired by: Kendall Jenner

I decided to do another one of these "Inspired by" posts because they're one of my favorites and I just have so much fun trying to style the outfits and finding everything that I want online.

These one is inspired by Kendall Jenner. If you don't know who she is, she's one of the Kardashians' half sister (along with Kylie) and, personally, I think she has a lot of taste for clothing and she's always wearing something that I like.

Inspired by: Kendall Jenner

I did two outfits because I really like her dressy style but at the same time I love her casual style. She is very trendy so usually wears items or brands on trend; for example, here I featured a high-low skirt, peter pan collar, cut-out shirts from Brandy Melville and combat boots with studs.

OUTFIT 1:       Top     //     Skirt     //     Nude pumps
OUTFIT 2:       Navy top     //     White top     //     Jeans    //     Boots

My next one is going to be Kylie, but if you have any requests, just let me know :)

Bloglovin update

I know I'm pretty late on this but I just figured I should put my blog on bloglovin and also use that web to follow some blogs.

I just put a button on the top-right of this blog so you can click and follow me or you can just click here :)
Also, let me know if your blog is on bloglovin' as well so I can follow you on there too.

Weekly photos #18

I'm not at home, again. It seems like I'm going everywhere this summer, even though I'm still in the country. So I don't have many pictures to show you because I've been packing, coming here, and also (I have to admit) I've been a little lazy lately.

Anyway, here are some pictures from my trip:

1 & 3. These are actually from the same outfit. I didn't want to wear the hat on the train but I might go to the beach (so I wanted to take it) and it wouldn't fit in the suitcase. I'm also in love with those 3 bracelets; the cross one is from ASOS and the other two from H&M.
2. I took a train to come to my current location and that's the train station we have in Madrid. Actually there's two of them, but that's the most popular one (and prettier one).
4. This is just the view from the train. Middle-south Spain in the summer time: very self explanatory.

Hopefully I'm going to visit some castles and places over here this week and I can show you that next Sunday, or I might do a whole different post if I find it interesting enough.

Have a nice Sunday!

Fashion Books: The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior

I started this series a while back when I did the post on Influence by Ashley and Mary-Kate Olsen and, for some reason, never continued...until now.

Today I want to show you something that might not be as known but it's still a great book to read if you're into fashion; it is The Little Dictionary of Fashion by Christian Dior.

As the name of it says, it contains words related to the fashion world displayed in alphabetical order. Each word or item contains either a description, explanation or comment. Some words that are included are: brocade, afternoon frock, fringe, lace, jewelry...

Some pages also contain very nice drawings and/or pictures that help you get a better idea of the whole book.

In my opinion it has a very classy and vintage look to it and it makes me feel like I'm reading something from the past. I think this concept is what they're going for, as well as something really feminine. It's all written in black and pink and all pictures/drawings are in black and white; those three are the only colors you're going to find in the book.

Overall, this book is fun and interesting to read and I have definitely learned some new things. Also, I think it was around $20 and I got it on but I'm sure you'll be able to find it somewhere else.

Nail of the day - Cute as a button

I've been wanting to try this nail polish for a while now because I heard so many people talking about it and loving it. Finally I bought it when I went to the US and I have to say that I'm in love with it as well.

This nail polish is "Cute as a button" by Essie. Here are some pictures of it in natural light:

It is a pink color as you can see and I really love pink nail polishes (and pink everything) so this is a great nail polish to have in my collection. I can definitely see why so many people like it.

Weekly photos #17

I'm really sorry I haven't been posting as much lately but I promise I have a lot of posts ready for you guys. Anyway, this week has been pretty fun for me since I've been seeing all of my friends and that makes me happy.

1 & 2. I went to a park here in Madrid called Retiro with my friends. We love to go there because it's a little bit less hot than the rest of the city because of all the trees and plants. We just like to sit on the grass and talk for hours. We also took some pictures.
3. I've been watching the Olympics and basketball games make me so tense. Spain's team is really good in my opinion but there are some moments in which I just want to scream at the tv haha. ps: my cat likes to block my view by laying down on the table. 
4. Salad is my favorite food, I think I've mentioned it a million times already, but still :)

5. Starbucks is my guilty pleasure.
6. Another picture of my cat. She's like my baby and I hold her like one.
7. That's me after filming my July favorites the other day.
8. Tea is another passion of mine. Did I have another picture of iced tea last week?

July 2012 favorites!

Yay!...Wait what? I think I'm the only person on Earth who doesn't like summer that much. I love summer clothes but the whole heat situation, not that much. Anyway, let's go into my favorites:

- L'Oreal Elnett hairspray.
- CoverGirl single eyeshadow in the color "french vanilla": which I use as a highlight for my brow bone. 
- Too Faced Shadow Insurance eye primer.
- NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in the color "Yogurt": I use it as a base for eyeshadows that are kind of the same color and won't show up as well if I put them just on my bare lid.
- Milani baked blush in the color "Luminoso".
- Maybelline lipstick in the color 140 "Intense pink".
- Travalo: it's a travel/purse size refillable perfume bottle. One of the best things I've purchased in a while because I often forget to put perfume when I get out of the house.

As a fashion favorite I had to include these shorts from Zara because I love to wear them. The color is amazing and it even makes my legs look a bit tan (ok, not tan because I'm as pale as someone can get, but it kind of gives the illusion).

I wanted to include these 2 random food favorites because I've been eating them like crazy this month.
