Comme une fleur - Fréhel



Whenever summer comes I really look forward to come and be inspired by the Japanese style Mori Girl, I love the beautiful fabrics with delicate flower prints, canoutiers, and the appearance of 'going to the forest to pick wild berries." The problem is that in Spain (and at least these days back in Barcelona) is too hot ... so I always end up doing strange combinations of clothing like this!
 
Siempre que llega el verano me entran muchas ganas de disfrutar e inspirarme en el estilo Mori Girl japonés, ya que me parece precioso con sus telas delicadas, estampados sencillos de flores, canoutiers, y apariencia de 'ir al bosque a recoger bayas silvestres'. El problema es que en España (y al menos estos días atrás en Barcelona) hace demasiada calor... así que siempre acabo haciendo combinaciones de indumentaria extrañas como ésta!
 


 
The shirt is customized with a picture of the Japanese artist Imai Kira. I love her designs and some time ago I printed one of her beautiful images. The skirt is from Zara, already has two or three years, but I like it as much as the first day. A curiosity: the socks were originally white, but I dyed them with tea ... yes, tea! And they ended on that color, I love them! I hadn't socks on that tone for this kind of looks and I'm thrilled.
 
La camiseta está customizada con un dibujo de la artista japonesa Imai Kira. Me encantan sus diseños y hace algún tiempo me imprimí una de sus bonitas imágenes. La falda es de Zara; tiene ya unos dos o tres años, pero me gusta tanto como el primer día. Una curiosidad: los calcetines eran originalmente blancos, pero los teñí con té... sí, con té! Y quedaron de ése color; me encantan! No tenía ningunos calcetines en ese tono para este tipo de looks y estoy encantada; yo no descarto teñir más cosas.  







By the way, I bought some nice things for my house! A lovely set of glasses, with a pattern of lace and polka dots, also a game of rabbits popslices, a pink mug, a cupcake-shaped box for the sweetener, a butterfly and orange tea. Carol showed me the new Tiger shop around Barcelona and we're like crazy!
 
Por cierto, he comprado algunas cosas bonitas para mi casa! Un juego de vasos adorables, con un estampado de encajes y puntitos; también un juego para hacer helados de conejos, una taza, una caja en forma de cupcake para el edulcorante, una mariposa y té de naranja. Carol me enseñó la nueva tienda Tiger en Barcelona, y estamos como locas!

All Summer Long - Kid Rock (Summer tips for a healthy skin!)


So, finally summer's here and I wanted to post about it, but in the past few days it's been so hot around Barcelona that I thought about showing you some of my beauty tips for my skin!

Finalmente el verano ha llegado; iba a hablar sobre ello pero con la calor tan tremenda que ha estado haciendo en Barcelona he pensado en compartir con vosotros algunos trucos de belleza para la piel!

1. Fruit fussion bodycream from RNB Deliplus 2. Carrot body butter from Yes To Carrots! 3. Anti redness treatment from Guinot Paris 4. Cell Vitale Hydratant cream from Selvert Thermal Switzerland 5. Cell Vitale for eyes from Selvert Thermal Switzerland 6. All-over make-up remover from Oriflame.

The summer sun always cause dry skin, so it is important to keep skin hydrated, not only our faces like but also our body. Don't forget to hydrate with emphasis elbows and knees, as they are two of the drier parts of our body and need special pampering during this season. I use a red fruit bodycream that smells great, and alternate with the bodybutter of Yes To! (carrots, in this case), because carrots are good for the skin (but not only in cream, also remember eating carrots!)

El Sol del verano siempre provoca sequedad en la piel; por ello es importante que mantengamos hidratada tanto la piel de nuestra cara como la de nuestro cuerpo. No olvidéis de hidratar con énfasis los codos y rodillas, ya que de por sí son dos de las partes de nuestro cuerpo más secas y necesitan un mimo especial durante esta estación. Yo para ellos uso una bodycream de frutos rojos que huele fenomenal, y la alterno con la bodybutter de Yes To! (carrots, en este caso); ya que la zanahoria es muy buena para la piel (aunque no sólo en crema, recordad comer también zanahoria!)


There aren't two similar skins, which is why I'll talk about products that I use for my skin type: mixed and prone to redness.
 
As a teenager I used to have quite acne, and that is why my skin sometimes irritates, especially with the heat. To avoid this, every night I use a Guinot anti redness cream, ideal for delicate capillaries that needs
oxygen. I also use a hydratant cream and around the eyes moisturizer cream, all by Thermal Selvert Switzerland. 

It is important to wait your skin to soak the cream completely before applying another, if you can wait a minimum interval of 30 minutes, all the better!

No hay dos pieles iguales, es por ello que os hablaré de los productos que utilizo para mi tipo de piel: mixta y con tendencia a las rojeces. 

Cuando era adolescente solía tener bastante acné, y es por ello que mi piel se irrita a día de hoy, sobre todo con la calor. Para evitarlo, todas las noches utilizo un tratamiento anti rojez de Guinot, ideal para vascularizar los capilares más delicados. También utilizo cada noche un contorno de ojos y crema hidratante de Selvert Thermal Switzerland.

Es importante esperar a que la piel absorva una crema al completo antes de aplicar otra; si podéis esperar un intervalo mínimo de 30 minutos, mejor que mejor! 

 
Of course it is important that before applying any creams, you must clean your skin of makeup traces and environmental dirt accumulated during the day! If you live in a city with high pollution levels, it is good to know that the pores of the skin more easily get dirty, and so it is good to wear foundation during the day, to prevent pollution from entering our skin .. . but it is equally important (or more) clean your face at night.
 
Right now I'm testing some Oriflame products, and I'm enjoying this cleaner a lot. I also use a Boots' cleaner cucumber cream, which I highly recommend!

Por supuesto, es importantisimo que antes de aplicar cualquier crema, tengamos la piel limpia de los restos de maquillaje y suciedad ambiental acumulados durante el día! Si vivís en una ciudad con altos niveles de polución, es bueno saber que los poros de la piel se ensucian con más facilidad, y por ello es bueno llevar base de maquillaje durante el día, para evitar que la polución penetre en nuestra piel... pero es igual de importante (o más!) limpiar nuestra cara por las noches. 

Ahora mismo estoy probando algunos productos de Oriflame, y esta limpiadora de momento me está gustando bastante. También utilizo una limpiadora de pepino de la marca Boots, la cual os recomiendo encarecidamente!
 

1. High definition foundation from Make Up Forever 2. Eyesahodw helper Candy Eyed from Lime Crime Make Up 3. Super Matte Loose Powder from Make Up Forever 4. Ultra protection sunscreen from Heliocare 5. Makeup brush from Sephora.

During the day, I keep my ritual of hydration, but also add another important factor: protection.

Durante el día, mantengo mi ritual de hidratación, pero además añado otro importante factor: la protección.  


After applying my moisturizer and wait for it to soak, I add a sunscreen quite high (I buy this one from Heliocare in pharmacies) to avoid catching a lot of sun on the skin of my face. I have enough respect for the sun and also don't like to get dark, so I use a factor high enough to avoid it.
 
 Then I apply my foundation, I use Make Up Forever 'cause it has a cover that I pretty like and it's very well priced. I also use a makeup brush to apply it, but beware! ALWAYS remember that makeup brushes must be cleaned and dried, especially in summer, because our skin is more delicate, sweat and hygiene is crucial if we want to avoid pimples or blemishes!

Tras aplicar mi crema hidratante y esperar a que mi piel la absorva, añado un protector solar bastante alto (éste de Heliocare lo compro en farmacias), con el fin de evitar coger mucho sol en la piel de mi cara. Tengo bastante respeto por el sol y además no me gusta ponerme morena, así que utilizo un factor bastante alto para evitarlo. 

Luego aplico mi base de maquillaje; suelo utilizar la marca Make Up Forever porque tiene una cobertura que me gusta bastante y está muy bien de precio. Siempre utilizo una brocha de maquillaje para aplicarlo; pero cuidado! Recordad SIEMPRE que las brochas de maquillaje hay que limpiarlas y secarlas; sobre todo en verano, ya que nuestra piel está más delicada, sudamos y la higiene es crucial si queremos evitar granitos o imperfecciones!



Heat, causing perspiration, can ruin any attempt at a good makeup, which is why I use Candy Eyed by Lime Crime: no matter what happens that day, the makeup of your eyes will stay perfect! I think it was one of the greatest discoveries in terms of cosmetic products: Lime Crime Make Up!

Finally, to avoid unwanted glare also, I use a matte powder by Make Up Forever ... but always remember that at the end of day is very important to remove make-up from our!


I hope this has been a helpful post!

El calor, al provocar el sudor, puede arruinar cualquier intento de un buen maquillaje; por ello utilizo Cady Eyed de Limecrime: da igual lo que pase ése día, el maquillaje de tus ojos se mantendrá perfecto! Creo que ha sido uno de los mayores descubrimientos en cuanto a cosmética, los productos de Limecrime Make Up!

Finalmente, para evitar también brillos indeseados, utilizo unos polvos mates de Make Up Forever... por ello recordad siempre que al final de día es muy importante desmaquillar nuestra piel!


Espero que os haya sido útil este post!

Write this Down - Maxïmo Park


Last week Pili came from Zaragoza just for one day, but I met her with Carol, Alba and Veronica just for a fun afternoon.
Despite the stifling hot it was that day, we took her to Pudding, and she loved it! As we're prepairing a wonderful Lolita Tea Party for the next 7 of July, we thought that maybe on autumn we can do another one here... by the way, I took pictures at one of the rooms that I hadn't shown yo...


This part is so totally like a Parisian cafe, so romantic and perfect for warm days!



Yo can see here the circus roof over me, isn't it magic? 

Oh, I also had been a little bit creative during the past week (and I still feel that, it's so good!). I found some cute fake flowers and baclberries, and did some handcrafts ith them... here you can see a little pin for the hair!

And it rained all night - Thom Yorke


Hi there!

Last week I receive the prize from Iris Loves Fashion contest, this beautiful Titis Clothing's dress with a psychedelic rain print. This model is called Alondra and I must say that I think I made one of the best choices I could do!!


So on Sunday I went to Gracia and took some pictures around here with my new favourite summer dress (for sure!). The waist is a little bit but I wasn't sure about the size because of my bust... at the end it's a little big but it doesn't matter!





I think one of the best things about this dress is the big pockets it has... perfect for your sunglasses on summer!




I was wearing my little vintage handbag from Lullaby and my Sonia by Sonia Rykiel shoes... they both were lost on my wardrobe and I rescued them for this evening!

I've noticed I'm very pale, but I do not like the sun ... so now begins my fight against the summer sun!

Thanks, thanks, THANKS!

Secondly, we had a Lovely Flea Market last Sundays at Laia's place. It was so funny and we had a lovely time with friends!



Alex made some gorgeous cake and cupcakes but at the end I didn't eat any of them :(... next time!


You can see more pictures at Laia Chic's blog and at Rocio's.


Today I spent my evening with Ester chatting at Pudding. They're doing an special camp night at the cafe,and I feel so sorry that I can't stay there tomorrow night... hopefully, they'll do another one soon!




I found today this lovely dress at Primark, with little cats printed on it; and there is a white version with black little dogs... so lovely! I think I'll buy it too, is really adorable and perfect for summer days.
