Custom-made





Zara top, Oysho pants (custom-made), Irene Laya heels, Pull&Bear necklace, I bought the ring in Venice

I looked everywhere for a pair of shorts that resembled tap pants and couldn't find any anywhere. Those that I found on web pages were either sold out or were most definitely lingerie. They really have become popular. Then I was in Oysho, looking for something else, and found these by chance. I just added an edging of black lace. I teamed them up with this tee which I knotted, it was a bit long.

News of shoes





 Zara snake pants, Pull&Bear tee, denim waistcoat(gift), Mango wedges and bag, Day a Day hairband
Uno de 50 bracelet, DKNY watch, one of the rings from Camden Market, the other ring was a present from some friends

Some of the sales have started in Madrid and as I had a couple of hours to spare, I thought I'd take a look around the shops. A new shoe shop has opened nearby and as I am shoe crazy I popped in to have a look. They have some nice stuff, but when I stopped to think, about the shoes I already own, there were a few similarities and I want something a bit different. Just then I received a message in my bb telling me that the JC wedges I really want are back in stock. That was it, I had to order them straight away.

Counting the days







H&M dress, Mango belt, Uterqüe wedges, Bimba y Lola bag, Ray-Ban sunglasses, ring and bracelet from a market

I'm not usually in Madrid at the end of June. I usually leave for my house in the south right after exams. This year I've had to stay on for a week or so for a couple of photo shoots and I just cannot get it together with this heat in the city. It's much more bearable in the south, just as hot, but on the beach. Only a few more days though. I can't wait!!! With the temperature outside at around 40º it's difficult to leave the house but today I had a couple of errands to do, so I didn't have a choice.

Summer wishlist

Elisabeth & James jeans, Free People lace pants, Balmain shorts, Queen's wardrobe shorts, Alexander Wang top, Jeffrey Campbell wedges, Deadly Ponies bag, Michael Kors watch

Over the past few months I started shopping online. I've discovered many fantastic stores from other bloggers and although it's great to actually go shopping, and there are some marvelous stores here, there are so many great things from around the world that I just can't find in Madrid. There's also the added comfort, when the thermometer outside is sitting at 36º centigrade, of looking around shops from an air-conditioned sitting room. The only problem is that it's so difficult to choose. I would need a goldmine to actually buy everything I like. Hence the wishlist. I have already bought various things that I'm thrilled with and I love it when the postman arrives with a parcel.

Day off


H&M hairband and ring, Casio watch, Blanco bracelets



 Zara leather skirt, Topshop jersey top, Uterqüe boots, Mango bag, Bimba y Lola necklace 


Although I've bought some great stuff online, that should be arriving any day now, I came across these shoes, while I was out at lunch with a friend today, and just couldn't resist them. I think I'm pretty set for the summer.
Even though exams are over I still have a week left in Madrid for a couple of photo shoots. Then my holidays will really start. Thanks to everyone who wished me luck in the exams.

Lace and sheer

Lace has been around forever, but many people associate it with wedding dresses, sexy underwear and old ladies. But lace is very trendy for both day and evening wear. It's a beautiful flirty fabric, very feminine, romantic and chic. It looks great worn on its own or combined with other fabrics.

Sheer is just as great and also very trendy this season. If you're brave enough you can wear a sheer dress over sexy underwear or if you're more modest you can pair it with shorts mini skirts or dresses. Whichever you choose, it looks great.

Ice cream Sunday







Pull and Bear dress

Just finished shooting and it was so hot that I  desperately needed an ice cream. Went to pick up my dog "Teddy" and we walked to the ice cream parlour and I bought a great tub of strawberry and banana smoothie ice cream. Delicious!!! Then back home to the books to brush up for tomorrow's exam.

Nearly finished






Thank God this is the last week-end stuck at home studying. Just three more exams to go...  and finished!!! I was getting so uptight with one of the subjects I decided to go up to the roof with some notes to sit in the sun for a while... and see if I could clear my head. It sort of worked, looking out over Madrid. Can't wait for Wednesday!!
