Birthday!

Last tuesday I became a year older :) Though I spent 12 hours away from home, it was delicious anyway because of my dear partners at university and a wonderful dinner with my family and boyfriend late at night. Besides, it was funny to discover a videoclub which was about to close and selling everything for 1 to 5 euros - I arrived home with a few video-presents for them! :D

Lately I'm not very in the mood for pictures because of the loads and loads of work I have to do in no time, but I took some photos of my presents so that I can share with you :)

My sister gave me this cute summer dress and a matching necklace:

I received these two bags: the green one from some friends and the white one from my mother. I'm so happy with them :)

Also, my boyfriend gave me this special rucksack for my new laptop, which was something I really needed! However, he has taken it away because he's going to change it for a red one.

This little clutch is a gift from the same friends. It is a cosmetics clutch actually!

More beauty: this ticket from my parents counts for a series of laser depilation sessions. Yipeee!! :D

This item is really funny: an extra-mini-dress-like-towel! I'm thinking about taking it to the gym shower...

towel dress

A pair of stockings from the same friends who gave me the towel, and this pretty shoes. It's a pity I have to return them because they hurt my feet :S

And last but not least, something that will keep me quite entertained: two books! The one of the left is a present from my boyfriend too, and he made me find it by following some clues round my home! It is indeed a mistery novel and it has a notebook attached with some material so that you can work out your way through it :D And the one of the right is Wicked, a gift from two friends who I took to that musical play!

I'm longing to see what this new age has for me :)

High heels

Just another short entry today, because I'm at university right now and tonight there's ball dancing lessons! Besides, I haven't got any proper picture because yesterday was too dark again and today the sun was incomprehensibly bright just in the moment I needed to take the picture :S

So, it's time for another one's pictures again :) Today I present Deluxe, a woman with a delightful sense of style:

Deluxe: Con dos tacones

Deluxe pictures

The name of her blog is funny for Spanish speakers, because of a quite nasty idiom related to men and referring to bravery - she changes the nasty word for "heels", which indeed are usually very high in most of the pictures!

Enjoy! :)

Ikea skirt

Another rainy day! Today I dressed in my other favourite color: green.

I'm sorry for the bad quality but the clouds were so thick this morning. I'm wearing a black shirt and black patent boots (great for the rain), and green skirt, tights and Portuguese scarf. This skirt is one of my favourite skirts ever. I love the shape, the color, the big black button on the side and the print:

That's why I call it "the Ikea skirt" ;)

Blue mood

Blue skies make me want to dress alike. I don't understand why blue means "sad", for me is brightness and joy :) This is what I wore last thursday for university:

all in blue

On saturday I dressed in blue again for a birthday party, but it was too dark to take a proper picture.

Today, it was cloudy, windy and rain-smelling, and it started to rain in the afternoon. I tried to fight the grey atmosphere and my own tiredness of a whole weekend full of work with some bright mustard. So this was my outfit:

yellow for a rainy day

It's funny this relationship I always stablish between weather - mood - colors... Does weather influence in your outfit's color too?

By the way, there's something special in these two pictures, which I accidentally discovered now... Do you know what is it? ;)

Other worlds

Today I want to show you two blogs that are surely well known for many people. I always look forward to a new post from both of them because they have something special -- great pictures. And it is not so important what is being pictured, but how. Each one in its very personal style, take me to their very personal worlds.

Coming spring

Longer days are great! Finally I have a place where I can take a picture when I get up in the morning :)

blue and grey

Ok, maybe too much light now... I'll try something for the next time.

I love blue and grey, and this was my outfit for a highly optimistic day! After the yellow tights I couldn't resist buying a blue pair, and though it turned out to be a weird balloon-like blue I'm very happy because I have lots of blue shirts to combine - as I noticed when I bought this one some days ago.

By the way, the ribbon brooch is made by me - two strings and a safety pin is all that's needed!

Have you ever made an easy complement? I bet so! Please share the experience in a comment :)
