More cakes

Quizás estaba equivocada y estos sean los mejores pasteles del mundo! Porque puedes admirar el diseño... y después comértelos! Además son mucho más baratos que este.

Maybe I was wrong! Maybe these are the best cakes! Because you can admire the design... and then eat them! They are also much cheaper than this one.

I thought I couldn’t draw. I wasn’t very good at it in school. Perhaps I’m not much better now, and the difference is that I love myself more. I’m not so hard on myself. I allow myself not to be perfect. My drawings aren’t perfect. They are very simple and I guess a bit childish. I draw every day objects: a pink mug, a pretty skirt in a magazine, an orange table. Some of those things that I see and like.

New design

Estoy pensando en personalizar el diseño del blog. Quiero que sea como un collage, como si los posts fueran recortes. Empezaré a colgar aquí ideas hasta que vea lo que tienen en común y empiece a pensar en el diseño en concreto. Para los colores, quiero algo así. Que opinais?

So, I´m going to have this blog designed by a professional (My boyfriend happens to be a graphic and website designer). I want it to look like a moodboard, as if the posts were cuttings from different sources (hence the name!). I´m going to start posting ideas until I find the "common theme" ! As for colours? I want something like this! What do you think?

Letters on the wall

Últimamente, encuentro inspiración en las letras y la tipografía y he visto muchas maneras de usar letras como decoración. En este collage hay algunos ejemplos. Mi favorito es el "America" hecho con cubos, de la oficina de Mary Randolph Carter.

I have recently been inspired by letters and typography. There are lots of ways you can use letters around the house or the office. Here are some examples. My favourite is the America made of cubes from Mary Randolph Carter´s office.

Collage made with photos from Aesthetic Outbourst, Cookiemag, The Selby, Simple lovely, among others.

Old Hollywood Musicals

I have my parents to blame for this. I remember cozy evenings, the whole family watching a movie, and my father, annoyingly explaining the meaning of every scene and the biographies of a director or an actor. Old Hollywood musicals were the family’s favorites. The ones we all loved, without exception. My personal favourites were (and are) Singing in the Rain and Seven Brides for Seven Brothers, which we watched again, and again. I LOVE the later and it always reminds me of Christmas (wait, there is an explanation), as for years, they would show this movie late on New Year’s Eve in the Spanish Public TV channel. They don’t do it anymore, but every time I watch it, it takes me back to old New Year’s Eves.

Personal trends

“No es tan importante la tendencia a la que te apuntes como la pasión que derroches para hacerla tuya.” dice Carmen Grassa, la editora de Interiores, una revista de decoracion, en uno de sus editoriales. Esto, que siempre lo he tenido claro cuando se trata de moda, estoy aprendiendo a aplicarlo a la decoración, el diseño, las manualidades... Es otra manera de seguir conociéndome a mí misma.

“The trend you choose is not as important as the passion you put in to make it yours”. I read it in one of Carmen Grassa’s editorials in the Spanish decor magazine Interiores. Now, I´ve always known this when it came to fashion but i´m trying to apply it to my crafts and design projects. It’s another way of getting to know myself.
