Tempus fugit



Happy Birthday to me! 

I am officially 22. (June 28, 2011)

It is absolutely amazing how day by day nothing seems to change yet when we look back we realize...everything is different. Time flies and I hate it! In my time frame I am still 17.
Anyway, I want to dedicate today's post to the most unbelievably amazing boyfriend/person that has crossed my life.
He has been working on my birthday gift for over 3 weeks now and FINNNNAAALLYYY after all the mystery and sneaking around...I have been able to open and reveal the BEST (sorry, I'm short on words right now) gift not only anyone can give but MAKE for you. YES, my boyfriend doesn't go out to the store and buys me this months clothes cravings or anything of that sort...he works his ass off and makes something UNIQUE and special for me (and yes, I'm bragging like a bitch right now) but he deserves nothing but EVERYTHING.
Here are some pics of the result!!!

Apart from that, we spent tonight at one of my favorite restaurants and ordered the most delicious food! I created my own salad with feta cheese, all sorts of lettuce, bread crumbs, crunchy onions (like the ones they sell at IKEA), kumato tomatoes, emental cheese strings and pesto dressing! We also shared and amazing mushroom, garlic & parsley "tortilla de patata" (spanish omellete) and a side of bread with brie cheese on top!!! Like if that wasn't enough, we then had some strawberry daiquiris, Coronitas & Malibu with pineapple juice... (the Malibu and pineapple juice was one of the clues and part of the gift opening...considering my gift is made up of juice, milk, etc. boxes!) 

I am not a bif fan of "celebrating" my birthday, I like to take it as it comes and usually never plan anything but Hugo always manages to make it incredibly unforgettable and special.

GRACIAS AMORRRRRR!!! (se que leeras esto jiji)




I was so hungry/excited I couldn't even take a picture of the salad 'cause I ate it the minute it sat on the table
12:00 am, first calls/messages





My amazing lamp!
The most amazing person/boyfriend in the whole entire universe.

MONUMENTAL WALK




















Everyone that sees these shoes for the first time can't understand how they can even be "usable" and others think they're incredibly hard to walk in. Well, they're one of the most comfortable shoes I own and yes, they look like a monument but that's what I particularly love about them. 
Finally  got some color (Not in these pics yet though, of course) but I've been spraying lemon and extra oil and sitting by the pool with my Tinto de verano in hand and I look a little less like Casper.
This weekend we're having a little get away to Alicante and for the first time I will be driving such a long distance (without Hugo next to me, but in front of me instead). We will be driving 9 of our friends out to the beach and I cannot wait!
 It was about time it felt like summer was actually here!!!

You pick.


What do you think? Keepers or will I be over them in no time?

What about these? They actually are an acquired taste, the more I see them the more I like them.

This color???



Or this one? Depends right... or none!?

An awesome idea I stole from this awesome girl and can't wait to start making.















Most importantly, remember to:

Stripes, blue, green & turquoise





Very simple colorful/summery look. 
A couple of life changing decisions are being made these days. I am extremely excited and can't wait for them to all be 100% official so I can share them with you!
My birthday is also coming up soon. THAT I'm not too excited about. I am not a big fan of my birthday.
You can send a macarron cake for me though...

Summer plans need to me made as well. I am guilty for being one of the biggest procrastinators you will meet. Specially when it comes to summer plans. There are either too many plans or none, or I simly cannot make up my mind but whatever it is, I guess I've learned to just let them...flow.
But heres a few plans I have in mind:

1. Yacht week
2. London
3. Ibiza & Formentera
4. Cadiz
5. Greece
6. My godmothers wedding in Peru
7. Hamptons
8. Key Biscayne & Bimini
9. Cannes
10. Playa del Carmen

What are your takes? Which would you chose? (Obviously all, but I think I'll have to stick to maybe 4?)

Today I had one of those "doble sesion" movie days. Hugo and I take a break from a day of partying (like last night) and go watch 2 movies in the movie theatre, one of them for free and this time we had the whole room for ourselves. We watched Hanna and The Dilemma.
Hanna was extremely weird and I found absolutely no meaning to it while The Dilemma was funny and cute but nevertheless very typical.

I think this is enough for making up for all the lack of writing I have been doing in the last posts?

Have a good rest of the weekend!
