September: 7 favorite things

One of the things I love about living in Madrid is that here I can finally celebrate the changing seasons. I honestly have to say that I have been enjoying the changing colors of nature and the chillier weather. There are still lovely afternoons and sunny mornings but I did take out my scarf because now I am always cold. A-L-W-A-Y-S.

So yes, I am going to try the pumpkin spice latte for the first time and other fall drinks (I am kind of basic) and I also will change my make up to fall colors. I can’t wait for Halloween and I will be collecting some pine cones for fall decor.

  1. My mother-in-law came to visit and gifted me the most thoughtful gift ever: I now have the Iphone 6 and can’t wait to use it! So excited and thankful!

2) How lovely are these fall colors? I am enjoying long walks in the park since it’s not so hot outside anymore.

3) I am in love with this color. It’s the Maybelline Color Drama lip pencil in 110 Pink so chic.

4) Jimmy went to a quick trip to Barcelona and brought the cutest gift ever: my new minion pen drive. 🙂

5) You will not believe me if I tell you that the only two drinks I have ever tried from Starbucks are the expresso solo and the mocca frappucino. Yup, until last week that I tried the caramel latte. Mhhhhh…

6) My new favorite park: Parque de Fuente del Berro. Sorry «El Retiro» but this is my new favorite place.

7) Finally using my bathtub! Yaaaaaaas to bubble baths! (This helps so much with my back pains specially after a long run)

Any favorite fall things you guys are looking forward to? 🙂

Spring: My 7 favorite things

I am still here.

I know I have been absent for the last month but believe me I have been trying to organize my life and found myself overwhelmed with everything around me.

Spring is finally here. I have waited for the warmer weather for so long that I think I am going to miss my coat and my winter clothes (NOT).

My sister came to spend Easter with us in Madrid and we had tons of fun (post coming on Friday).

She stayed for 10 days and we got to do so many things. I felt like a tourist all over again and it was kinda fun. The weather got really warm for a week and then suddenly it was cold again, then hot then cold. So obviously the three of us got sick. My allergies are going crazy (welcome Spring!) but I have to say I am loving everything about this warmer season.

1) I was skeptical about this color but now I am loving it.

2) I can now wear my hat and look decent. (I tried this hat with my winter coat and looked ridiculous).

6) We discovered our new favorite Mexican restaurant. If you ever come to Madrid you should try it, it’s amazing!

7) I have an obsession with boxes. I have tons of them, so you can imagine my happiness when I saw this in a local flea market.

May you all have a fantastic Spring!
