Chocolate with Churros

Chocolate con churros in San Ginés

Well, well, it’s been ages, I know, life got in the way but I’m back. Nothing too exciting has happened during this time except for being super busy at work and for the 2.5 weeks we spent in Madrid. That was fun, and I wish we could do it more often.

We went to visit family and friends during the holidays, and we had missed them sooooo much. I wish I could show you pictures, but I barely took any. Yes, I brought the big camera. No, I really didn’t use it. The thing is, since we spent most of our time with our friends, we didn’t really go out sightseeing. Even if we had gone to see other places, although I always enjoy the surroundings, I always forget to take pictures. I should get better at that….

Hector and the search for happiness


How often do you go to the movies? I don’t really go. I’m lucky if I can squeeze it once or twice a year. It might sound weird to lots of you, but those parents out there know what I’m talking about.


Little break

Sorry for being so spotty with my posts lately. I’ve been buried with work, and I will be for another month. I’ll try to post at least once a week for now, since I also need to catch up on other things, including your blogs, sorry!


Around California – Solvang

It’s been years since I’ve been to Solvang, and I really hope I can go back soon. We discovered it when we were driving to L.A. on 101 and my father-in-law told us to stop there. He said that Solvang is this little Danish town close to Santa Barbara. We thought it was weird, and…

Duyos - Madrid Fashion Week

Madrid Fashion Week – Duyos

Sorry for the fashion week overload, but I saw this and it made me really happy. Juan Duyos, an incredible Spanish designer, prepared a different show for Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in Madrid. He requested 17 dancers from the Spanish National Ballet (Ballet Nacional de España)

Narciso Rodriguez - NYFW Spring 2015

New York Fashion Week – Narciso Rodriguez

I never understood fashion as something that you can’t wear. I remember watching fashion shows and not understanding why the clothes showed weren’t really something wearable.

Jewelry Organizer

Too many necklaces – DIY organizer

If you’re a little bit like me, I’m sure you’ve collected way too many accessories. Necklaces are my latest obsession. I don’t know what it is, but I just like to get them and I feel like I never have enough.

Nevada Falls 01

Around California – Yosemite

I can’t even begin to explain how magnificent Yosemite is. The first time I went there I didn’t think much about it until I started reading about it while driving through the park and admiring the views. 


Weekend Getaway – Tahoe

No matter what time of the year, Tahoe has something for everybody. Lots of nature, lots of sports, and gambling in the Nevada side of the lake. Considering that it’s less than three hours from San Francisco, it’s the perfect weekend escape.

Nude Nails Fall Trend

Nails Trend – Fall 2014

I really like nails properly done, it makes your hands look pretty, you feel pretty, put together and all that jazz but, I don’t tend to get professionally done.


Around California – Carmel

If you ever find yourself on this side of California you should definitely check out Carmel. It’s a quaint town north of Big Sur, just before Monterey. It’s known for having had Clint Eastwood as mayor, in addition to lots of art galleries, restaurants and bed and breakfasts.
