He opened his journal and ripped out a page of his work and signed it for me. We were all so excited because now we have a piece of his work and its signed! It had to been the one of the best days ever! And stuff like that only happens in NY right?!! hahaha!

Wearing: One of my Topshop dresses I bought in NY( Im just in love with them), Zara sequins blazer, Zara boots.
I ´ve been meaning to use this blazer since my birthday (april 14th so long ago!). I´m betting
we all had bought clothes so wonderful ( for us ) , that we often are waiting for a great occasion
to use them , well, I just learnt we can wait reeally long , so whatever, why don´t you just
use it(I mean now!)? Well, I chose weekend .
A great cocktail ( just a few! ) was just the begining of a thrilling night. Although
I´m still tired I just have this feeling my night-out was crazy/exciting/ enjoyable, so
I don´t regret almost watching the sunrise when arriving home.
Anyway , my trip was amazing, everything great I could imagine happening ,was even better.
I hope I´ll be soon somewhere else enjoying life, fashion, friends, and new places.

I can't sleep. I've got too much to do and my house is now a total pig sty. I actually get seriously anxious around mess and dirt. I'm lying in bed (my boy is sound asleep next to me) and I keep going over all the bloody things I've gotta do. UGH!!!
Good things that have happened recently are:
*Me and the boy went to Sardinia. It was lovely. I'll do another post about that another time.
*I finally found a vintage kimono. I've been looking for ages and then I found one on in ebay in Canada. The seller didn't wanna ship to the UK but I pleaded and got my way. It's gorgeous. Bright blue with peacocks all over it and silver and gold threads. It didn't come with a belt so I'm using an old leopard print silk scarf. I feel like a dame when I wear it.
*I got my flight to NY all sorted. AND my boy can come on the same flight as me. AND Oscar the cat can come too.
*Rediscovering old friendships. Pizza, Mariah and my Gay.
*Clearing out 3/4 of my wardrobe. It's shameful how many items there were with tags on that have NEVER BEEN WORN. It will do me good to give them away and make me think twice about buying so many things. I am a terrible magpie.
*Finding my old note book. It's filled with songs and ideas for scripts. I'm gonna rule the world with that thing ;)
As the amount of emails I've received regarding the name of the tracks
i've been playing on my blog,I thought it was totally necessary to share
with you guys my top 25 favourite songs,the ones that are always
playing on my ipod and probably there are many more I won't be posting
here,as I wanted to keep a "small" list of them.
Debido a la gran cantidad de emails que he recibido preguntandome
por las canciones que pongo en el blog,pense que seria una buena
idea compartir mis 25 favoritas y que siempre suenan en mi ipod.
Por supuesto,esta es una corta lista de todas las grandes canciones
que me gustan,pero no podria ponerlas todas!
