Our last two days in Rome were spent in Hotel D'Inghilterra.
A complete change from what our previous two nights at Rome Cavalieri had been considering location and hotel size and concept.

A fantastic, gigantic place to stay a few minutes away from the center of Rome.
Only 3.9 km from St. Peter's Basilica, 4.7 km from the Piazza Navona.

Para que los que no hayan ido, con este mapa pueden hacerse una pequeña idea de

En esta ruta, les enseño algunos de mis lugares favoritos por Madrid: Juanita Cruz, Wanda Cafe, Sally Hambleton, Doña Tecla y My Little Momo.

Aquí pueden ver el video entero de la ruta!

ABERCROMBIE


 photo 2_zpsv31vdj2z.jpg  photo 3_zps4xfuldkv.jpg

Abercrombie is no doubt the classic go-to brand, I at least grew up wearing.
Though their sweats and basics have always been my favorite go-to items, I am extremely excited about their new products, always maintaining the all-american effortless look every girl next door has pulled off but this time with a fresh different twist. 
I am specially excited about specific collaborations like the one with Superga! 
How cool are these silver version of the sneakers? Perfect for summer days, to match with absolutely anything or even to add a special touch to any outfit.

NEW YORK CITY: LES


 photo 138_zpszzplkkfi.jpg  photo 136_zps9iwgldq3.jpg  photo 122_zpshgakcrop.jpg

Before leaving leaving NYC for a few weeks and heading to Madrid, my friend Ryan and I went around the LES to bare the cold and find inspiration. While his hands got frozen, and so did my face & smile, I think we found the perfect spot to go back during summer.

NEW YORK CITY: BOWERY AND 4TH

My corner, my spot, my comfort zone.
 So many memories, too many anecdotes, endless lessons.
It's incredible, how you can somehow create such a strong connection with a place.
Somewhere you once call home, will always be home.

NEW YORK CITY: CHELSEA

Winter is officially coming to an end, and I must admit, though many complain, it is by far, for me, one of my favorite seasons.
At least this year, it has been incredibly magical, freezing, painful, but magical.
I'm just a sucker for coziness and any excuse to wear more layers than I probably should.
Any reason to stay home and watch Netflix -because it is too cold out- is just the absolute perfect plan in these negative Celsius temperatures.

NEW YORK CITY: SHADES OF PURPLE


 photo 012215_9964_zpsiu03ctnf.jpg  photo 012215_9958_zpsnbnrr2zm.jpg

With unbearable weather, sometimes the best option is wearing your PJ's and a warm, cozy sweater to layer them up. 
I'm not a huge fan of combining different tones of the same color, specially when it comes to purple, but apparently bad weather makes me lose my eye sight as well, and I didn't notice my beanie was purple until I saw the pictures. 
In any case, I actually liked the unexpected mix of purples going on.

NEW YORK CITY: THESE STREETS


 photo 012115_9630_zps7wm6ybhd.jpg  photo 012115_9608_zpsrekhzr6d.jpg

We definitely all go through phases.
When I first started my blog, 3, 4 or 5 years ago (yes, my Memory is that bad), I went through a high heel phase.
Of course, at the time, Jeffrey Campbell was a big deal, for me at least, and so I basically collected them all, from Litas to the Ticks.
Through out the years, I am unsure if it has to do with my laziness becoming more incorporated when it comes to getting dressed, but, I have stabilized with being a hardly ever heel person, sticking with Supergas and flats as much as I possibly can.
Here though, I grant you with one of my, now, rarely seen shoe situation, but I couldn't resist getting a bit girlier with these Guess shoes.
Of course though, if I am to wear heels, it has to be accompanied by the coziest and most oversized layers like my (rarely seen not wearing) turtle neck, Fendi sunnies, and this Never Fully Dressed coat.

NEW YORK CITY: AFTERNOON IN DUMBO

 photo QT1A7961_zpsae98a687.jpg

I believe we are all guilty of comfortably sticking to all black outfits, when lacking inspiration, time or simply want to cover up any remaining holiday (or including summer) extras.
I, myself, am a lover of the simplicity yet elegance and easiness of an all black outfit, but, what I like even more, is adding the perfect pop of color and texture with one of those extra flamboyant pieces we all have (or should have) in our wardrobes.

NEW YORK CITY: I CAN BREATH AGAIN


 photo sandraarenas011_zps23cd7fe5.jpg



Ever since I moved back to New York City, countless emotions, sensations, feelings and what nots have been felt, thought and gone through my mind.
I named my blog Drifting Nomad for a reason.
Everywhere I've ever been, ever lived, I only stayed for a while.
When you adapt a nomad lifestyle, not only do things come and go more often, but, you're constantly in an unknown phase, an unknown place, because, you never really know what your nest step or your next destination is, and more importantly, how long a while will be this time.

I found my way back home again
But I can only stay for awhile
Now that I'm on my own I can
Finally I can breathe again
So I can only stay for awhile

BOOM! 
Lights, action, movement, colors, night at 3pm, daylight when it's nighttime, Times square, Flat Iron, Columbus Circle from atop, Rain, Mirrors, Tourists, me and of course, my beanie, through Tutes' eye and lens.

When two of my ultimate favorite things are combined, mixed, or simply happen at the same time, nothing but good can result.

NEW YORK CITY: DON'T SWALLOW THE CAP


 photo neilaline-86650006_zpsf2a6d616.jpg

In case you haven't heard, seen or your Facebook newsfeed hasn't been bombarded by resolutions, promises and reminders that yet another year has passed, well, here I am, to again, bring to your attention that 2015 is here.
I don't want to look back, create expectations or make promises I probably won't be able to keep.
Every day, every minute is new, is a chance, is an opportunity.
