Year: 2012

Teatro alla Scala

Yesterday I was thinking that I’ve never seen a Verdi Opera… and I would love to. Today I’ve found out that I could make my wish come true just booking a couple of tickets of Nabucco at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. They open on February 1st, wouldn’t it be a great way to start the year? I’m sure this production would be amazing because Mr. Abbado is involved. Can you imagine listening to the famous Va’ pensiero in a place like that? Breathtaking! So, please Santa, can you get me a little weekend getaway to Milan and a couple of tickets for this amazing Opera?I’ll make it easy: Information and tickets here!

The George, Hamburg

This weekend we had a great time in Hamburg. We made our first Christmas shopping, we visited two neighbourhoods we didn’t know, had dinner at Bullerei (quite a disappointment, I must say) and discover a great place for breakfast, Gnosa. But the best thing of our weekend was our hotel, The George.

In my suitcase: earrings

We spend Christmas basically on pijamas or bundled up in huge sweaters, jeans and boots, but sometimes you just want to add a little sparkle in you life… And these earrings are beautiful, aren’t they? Not that I will wear these earrings with my pjs… Well, who knows? Maybe that would be a trend one day. Wait! It’s already a trend: pajama pants and statement earrings were huge this year, right? Anyway, these earrings would look amazing with a simple LBD for a fancy night out with friends. They would be nice too paired with a nice blouse and a pair of great cut pants for a more casual look, a family dinner maybe? You can buy them

Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen

If you happen to be in New York before January 12, 2013 you should visit Katharine Hepburn: Dressed for Stage and Screen, the exhibition organized by the Kent State University Museum at the New York Public Library. This woman was amazing. I love the magnificient elegance in her filmography and her tomboy style outside the screen. She was a truly trendsetter. More information about the exhibition here

Cocas

I know, I know, it’s Tuesday. But yesterday we couldn’t post. We worked from 9 a.m. until 11 p.m. non stop! So here you have this week’s mmm… Monday on a Tuesday! Cocas are a typical Majorcan dish that we love. María, the chef of Ca Na Toneta introduced us to the simple yet full of flavour Cocas in the wonderful catering that she prepared for our wedding two years ago. Since then it has become one of our favourite appetizers.

In my suitcase: warm tartan scarf

Christmas holidays are around the corner (yay!). What does this mean? That “In my suitcase” Christmas edition is here! (double yay!) First thing I’m going to take with me? This lovely tartan scarf from Zara. I just can’t picture Christmas without tartan and warm cosy attire so this piece is a win-win! You can buy it here
