Every Winter we decide that we have to visit Stockholm the next Summer. Then Summer arrives and we just don’t book the trip. I don’t know why… it seems like we can’t find the time to visit Stockholm in Summer due to our yearly travels to Spain. But don’t you think this is a city you have to visit in Summer?
Anyway, the main reason why I want to visit Stockholm is not its architecture, royal palaces, charming colourful streets or state of the art cuisine and design. Not even the ABBA Museum! The truth is that I want to visit Stockholm because I want to try the real Cinnamon Buns! #foodie, I know.
When we visit Madrid we always meet our friend A. for lunch. She knows the best places to enjoy really (but really) good Spanish food. Last Summer she took us to Mercado de la Reina, which is now one of our favourite spots in Madrid, and this years she introduced us to the wonders of Bar El Tomate. This restaurant is not new, in fact we wanted to try it for a long time. But when we got A’s sign of approval, we knew the lunch was going to be fantastic. Continue reading
For those of you who are still or holidays, or even planning your next trip, here you have a nice suggestion: Arles. In this, our fourth installment of our Charming Summer series, we want to share with you a mini guide of Arles, a romantic French town with an impresive historical background and a lively atmosphere.

I’m back from holidays so it means it’s Autumn for me. I don’t care if we have almost a Summer month left. I have my eyes on September and I’m getting ready for it. Actually it’s a matter of survival: if I don’t think about Autumn I’m going to be depressed because everyone is still on holidays and I’m stuck at work. So! Let’s start reviewing Autumn collections! Maje is one of my favourite brands and I’m always looking forward their new collections. A friend of mine once said that they offer always the same pieces, different takes on basics and plain colours but… That’s exactly why I love it! They do wearable. And wearable is what I want.
We are baaaack! After two weeks in Spain we feel like we need holidays to get over our holidays. We have no energy at all (Running after our nephew and niece on the beach was harder tan expected), we feel weird in Germany (Where are the bars? And the people? And the olive oil?) and we have so many things to do that we don’t know where to start (168 mails this morning. Seriously?). I have an article due on Monday and I haven’t even started, we haven’t posted since Friday, our house needs a serious make over… well, at least we have unpacked and the refrigerator is full.
We want to go back to our beloved/hated spinning clases this afternoon. Well, you know what? I’ve been attending these clases regularly for about three months now and I surprised my doctor: I haven’t lost a gram, nor have I gained any muscle. So what’s the point? I guess working out makes me go to sleep with a clear conscience. Please tell me that you work out and look like you don’t work out too. Or are you all like those people in Instagram with their amazing before/after pictures (Just four months? Really?) and #bodybyiza imposible exercises? Am I alone here?
Anyway, this week we have to work a little bit on the blog. We want a new lay out, new collaborations and brand new content. Because the new year is almost here with its resolutions! And yes, I’m talking about September. Am I the only one that feels that September is the new January? For me it is. So here we are: back from holidays, looking forward to Autumn. Every year it’s the same: tartan and velvet are back in September and so are my thoughts about loosing weight, write more and have a (more)wonderful life. Let’s see what happens…
In the meantime stay tuned for some travel diaries! I have made short videos! Now I have to fight with the video editor… I hope I win!!

So, yes, this week the blog is all about lists. But this is going to be the last one! What can I say? I love making lists! Anyway, have you ever dream about sleeping inside a cave in Capadoccia? Have you ever thought about renting a house on a tree to spend your holidays? And how cool would be calling a vintage Airstream trailer your home for a few days? Here you have some unusual sleeping spots that will deserve a journey on its own!
I love this brand just because of the packaging. Don’t you think it’s gorgeous? These are the new additions to the Marc Jacobs beauty line. They say it’s luxury reinvented and judging by the wonderful reviews on the beauty channels, it has to be true. Of course I want it all. I have to admit that I’ve been a little obsessed with make up lately but those Kiss Pop lip colour sticks are so cute and bold! And I want all the shades of those Twinkle Pop eye sticks. All of them. Besides, don’t you think they are really compact and perfect for travelling?
They are a little bit difficult to find, but you can buy them online here. And watch all the little videos where Marc Jacobs himself explains something abut each product! What a touch!
PS: don’t get me started on the beautiful (and limited edition) nail polishes!
Even though we love the Mediterranean, we can’t help but dream about exotic beaches, distant destinations and colourful new sunsets. I guess this week is all about lists and after yesterday’s 8 cooking schools across the world, here you have 7 idyllic beaches to daydream… Can you picture yourself staring at these wonderful natural wonders?
