I love this look a la justbecausefashion from Spain. I missed out on getting this blazer at Zara, but they have a few similar one's at Stradivarius now. Perfect for a little Indian summer that has decided to pay a visit- and teacher appropriate.

new scents

I can't wait to get to Sephora to smell these new scents. Very rosy-I wonder if I may find another favorite to add to my growing collection...
Parisienneand rose-the one.

Every girl in Spain has a little leather bomber jacket-a leather cazadora-or in slang a 'chupa'. I've tried a few on at Bershka, Mango, and other places, and for some reason or another, even though all the girls look super cute in them, I can't see myself wearing the same jacket as every other girl. So, I've been on the hunt to find a cute more original leather jacket-and with some inspiration from my bestie's blog, I think I may have found the 'chupa' for me at Mango Online.

I've been wanting to fix up our office lately...there's so much empty green wall and the desk is a mess. Framing art is out of the budget for I've been playing around with the idea of getting a big cork board, painting it to add a contrast color, and filling it with pictures that we love or anything else that inspire us. After seeing this on design*sponge this week I feel validated, it's not my college apartment corkboard anymore! I'll update you soon.
(yes...2 d*s posts in one week. It's been inspiring me this week:)

more books!

I´ve been looking at bookshelves lately...our big shelf is filling up quickly and it´s getting time to invest in more shelves. But before we buy new shelves I´ve been thinking about a few books I´d like to top off our present shelf with...beside the book of Juan Rulfo photos I´d like to add this one thats been winking* at me from the display windows of bookstores here in Santiago: Avedon Fashion 1944-2000. Not only do I love the photos, but the cover is great...a perfect book to display and inspire. Good thing Christmas is just around the corner...
*if you haven´t seen this book yet, it really does wink! The right eye opens and closes as you move the book! Soo fun and cute!

Big Brother??!!??!!

Seriously. What? Do people watch this show? Did it ever make it on American TV? Is it really popular here in Spain? I think its the most annoying show on Spanish television. Maybe it's supposed to be a socialogical experiment. Maybe you can watch it to learn real Spanish. But, seriously? And to top it off the host of the Spanish version, Mercedes Mila, used to be a very famous Barbara Walters-esque journalist who now spends all her time watching bored people in a big house. What? Alucino, tio. De verda.

What a great idea-tie-dye kitchen towels as seen on Design*sponge.
I love the color combinations and they look so easy to make...

On my Chirstmas list...

Rummikub- memories that hold a special place in my heart-evenings in Margarita spent playing with my family- evenings spent playing the week before our American wedding with new family-it's a necessary addition to our life here in Spain!

I've been sooo busy with the new job teaching English at an academy!

I'm finally getting a steady paycheck, have great work mates, and I'm cotizando-meaning that part of my paycheck is going to the government to cover my healthcare and my retirement. Phew. It's great!!

I'm on my feet all day, and in the need of some new cute, comfortable, Spanish shoes. I still want Campers. From the new season these are in the running as my new shoes-comfortable for walking through the city, being in my feet all night entertaining and chasing kids, and being in the rain.
Too bad they all cost at least 150 euros. I got a job, but I'm still not rich.
