Xmas series: DIY Christmas cards

We’ve never sent Christmas cards as a couple. It’s weird because we’ve been together for almost thirteen years and married for almost three years now so it was about time, huh? Some weeks ago I decided that this year not only would we send pretty Christmas cards to our friends and family, but also we would make them ourselves! I’m not a very crafty person, that is why I went for the easiest way possible. I am very proud of the result so I thought it would be nice to share the process with you.

AB FLASH SALE!

GREAT NEWS! Our lovely friends from AB Jewellery celebrate their first anniversary and they will be hosting an amazing flash sale from December 2nd (8 a.m.) to December 4th (8 a.m.). You will have 48 hours to find that perfect piece to enhance your holiday looks! Go to their web to have a look and choose your favourite AB! I would go for any of their earrings or for this super fashionable soft pink ring. But if you want to splurge a little bit, I recommend you their new collection. Remember, next week you have a date with AB Jewellery!

Emerson Fry

Emerson Fry is a brand that we love. Their pieces are elegant yet comfy and have the perfect vibe to achieve a polished effortless cool look. We adore their coats (click, click) their pefectly cut pants (click) and their sexy pumps (click), but we just fell in love when we saw this amazing lace body with silk ties. It’s a dream, so delicate and feminine. It comes with a complementary matching silk envelope which it’s perfect for travelling. There is a pink satin version, more playful but equally beautiful. It would make a fantastic Christmas gift, don’t you think? Which reminds me… stay tuned for our Chistmas gift guide next week! You can buy it here.

Xmas series: the playlist

Christmas is here!!! Yay!!! This is my favourite time of the year. I just love it! The decorations, the atmosphere, the food, the presents… and everyone seems to be nicer at Christmas!! The most important thing, though, is that we get to visit all our family and friends in Spain!!! I just can’t wait! That’s why we are going to dedicate several posts to the upcoming holidays during the following weeks. Everything from decor, guift guides, cards… all about Christmas! Lets get started with our Christmas playlist!

Vanilla cheesecake

Cheesecake was my baking unfinished business. Until last weekend. I have tried a couple of times, but I’ve never achieved what I was looking for. I wanted something creamy but fluffly, sweet but not overly so, something with a fruity or spicy touch. And on top of that, I wanted something easy to prepare. And I’ve found the perfect recipe!

Weekend style icons: Chriselle

Finally Friday!Yay! What are up to this weekend? We will try to hit the gym (I’ve said try, yes) and we are hosting a bruch on Sunday. In the meantime, here you have our style icon for this weekend: Chriselle from The Chriselle Factor. She is a high heels, fancy purses and all glamour kind of girl, but from time to time she show us more casual outfits that we really like because they are comfy, informal… but somehow sophisticated.

10 rooms with a view

Now that the weather is cold and we spend most of our leisure time at home looking how it rains outside, we’ve been daydreaming about more appealing views. This is a selection of the best room views around the world. A girl can dream, right? 1. Hotel salto chico: a lodge located right at the heart of the extraordinary Torres del Paine National Park in central Patagonia. This lodge is places right on the banks of the Salto Chico waterfall. It affords an excellent view of the unique Paine Massif and two of the three impressive torres, or towers, which give the park its name.

The icon trench by JCrew

This weekend we saw a picture of this trench on Instagram and we just fell in love. I just can’t stop thinking about it! Made of Italian wool cashmere it is the perfect piece to use everyday ever year. Just a classic piece. Elegant and oh so pretty! It’s the perfect piece to combine both with casual and more formal outfits. The cut is so perfect and I’m sure the fabric is a dream. You can buy it here.

AB NATURAL, the new collection by Antonio Bayona

Today we are thrilled to wellcome in our blog the new collection of Antonio Bayona: AB NATURAL. After two fantastic collections: AB Colours and AB Basics, AB goes back to the roots of the art of jewellery: precious metals and natural gemstones. AB Natural consists of four pieces made of sterling silver and plated either with rhodium or 18K yellow or rose gold. The principal elements are the high quality gemstones, also handcrafted in Spain. In this collection two new designers collaborate with AB: Inma Soria and Sonia Carmona. Alba Cuallado and Alba Bayona repeat their succesful collaborations with the brand.

Atrium, Bremen

This weekend we payed a visit to a restaurant we’ve wanted to try for a few weeks. I had the opportunity to interview the owner for my last article in El Viajero and since then I was super curious. This restaurant has a little gourmet shop in the front where you can buy thousands of delicatessen from the Mediterranean area. Back in the dining room, you can enjoy delicious dishes in a truly charming atmosphere.
