I thought I would share a fun post for Londoners looking for some fun… If you fancy ice skating this weekend to get into the Christmas mood, I have a special treat for you. In a short read you can find out about the UK’s 10 best ice rinks I wrote for the i newspaper. This includes London’s best spots: Natural History Museum, Somerset House (my favourite pick) and the mini new rink on Bluebird’s courtyard. Read it all HERE.
I managed to visit two of these rinks this season already! I went to the opening of Bluebird’s ice rink and was kindly treated by Belvedere cocktails, mini burgers and indulging hot chocolate donuts while practising my moves on the slippery rink. Somerset House was the next step and with an obvious bigger space I managed to crash! Yep, I did. I felt I was ready to speed up until I suddenly felt the icy punch on my back… Classic. It has a nice bar to warm up with some festive hot drinks, or simply wine, while overlooking the ice rink, and we did enjoy it… Christmas has officially arrived and how much I love the fun that comes with in… Next stop: Winter Wonderland. Stay tuned!
I was quite happy to wake up to this yesterday. I was spotted by the lens of Company Magazine Street Style and featured on their section of “hottest trends direct from the streets”. This was the total floral look I wore for London Fashion Week – Day 1(see outfit post), wearing Baukjen top and skirt from its SS13 collection and Jeffrey Campbell pointy heels. Check the Company Magazine Street Style gallery in which Im featured and other styles HERE.
Me contentó mucho haberme despertado y encontrarme con ésto ayer. A el lente del street style de la revista Company le gustó mi look floreado que llevé para el primer dia del London Fashion Week y lo incluyeron en la seccion de “las tendencias directo de las calles del LFW”. La falda y y el top son de la colección primavera/verano 13 de Baukjen (ver el post del outfit) y zapatos the Jeffrey Campbell.

Hey sweets! London Fashion Week kicks off today. Hip hip…hurray! So before I can think straight again after a heavy-work couple of weeks, I was looking back at what I’ve worn for the past fashion weeks, so thought of sharing some of the pics, including some old outfits from by very beginnings at the hectic week. It will be a long long day tomorrow, for all the latest updates follow be on Instagram (@fashioninsideout) and Twitter. Im hoping the usual annoying lack of reception doesn’t interfere. See you at the shows and fun darlings!
Luxury cars and fashion have been strongly related for years; fashion designer Ralph Lauren, for example, gets inspiration from his car collection for his clothes’ line and fashion shows. However, it is quite unusual that I post something about Formula One, but since FashionInsideOut is a mix of life and fashion adventures I thought it was worth sharing the day I took an exclusive tour at the McLaren Engineering Centre and met F1 champion Jenson Button. I’m sure some of you might admire him for either his successful career or for his looks.
I can’t describe how fascinating it was and the incredible modern architecture of the steel and glassed building. I’ve never been closer to this motor sport before, so I was amazed by how they build the cars, the installations and the history behind it. I realised it is a sport that has worked close to fashion since its beginnings; dating decades back, fashion and perfumes labels have been its biggest sponsors yet. Just like McLaren’s current sponsor: Hugo Boss.
Also, it was today the Italian Grand Prix in Monza and this week the F1 film Rush was premiered in London’s West End, to which McLaren’s drivers Jenson Button and Sergio Perez arrived in tuxedos driving the classic race cars that appear in the movie. More excuses to entertain any man, or F1 fan girl, following the blog. Any fans out there?
I was wearing–> Dress: Warehouse; Jacket: Mint Velvet; Handbag: Louis Vuitton; Ballerinas: Ralph Lauren

Sometimes brainstorming is key to succeed in projects, personal plans, businesses and life, and that is exactly how my Saturday morning was like. Lots of ideas of a new exciting content for FashionInsideOut, organising some bits and bobs to keep my two jobs in place. And funny enough, since I was a kid I’ve been obsessed with collecting notepads and diaries; new notebooks are my best inspirations, I quickly start filling up the pages. With this new lovely skirt I spotted in Zara sales, a new notebook, a new pen and unusually lots of pink, Im ready to take FashionInsideOut to the next level developing new project ideas that have been written already on the first pages of this magic pinkness. Exciting!
Oh yeah it’s very, very cold in London, so probably I will wear this puffy red vest with fury neck in here as well, although I won’t be walking on the white streets of Colorado. This is my last outfit from my time at the mountains -I wanted to introduce you to one of my Christmas presents from my mom, this Hugo Boss bright and very warm piece, which I combined with a pair of polka dot jeans, simply, keeping warm! What do you wear to keep warm and cool?
Si, está haciendo mucho, mucho frio en Londres, así que probablemente me ponga este chaleco rojo aquí también, a pesar de no estar caminando por las calles cubiertas de nieve de Colorado. Este es mi último look de mis días en las montañas, en el que quería introducirles uno de mis regalos de Navidad de mi mamá, esta pieza colorida y caliente de Hugo Boss, la cual combiné con unos pantalones de lunares, simplemente abrigandome del frío! Tu, qué llevas para mantenerte cool y abrigada en estos dias de frio?
I was wearing–> Red vest: Hugo Boss; Jumper: Moncler; Jeans: Else; Boots: Report; Beanie: H&M
It is no secret that British fashion has been embraced by the world and the entire industry in the past year, I would say that after the Royal Wedding, British talents started to invade boutiques, red carpets and high streets worldwide. So this was a great year for it to be my first time at the British Fashion Awards ceremony, which took place at The Savoy Theatre last night. I must say that I have never been somewhere with so many celebrities at the same place, every British designer I truly admire was there and my beloved Mexican actress Salma Hayek too, so I did enjoy it to its best. Congratulations to all the winners and to the amazing Spanish shoe god Manolo Blahnik who received a very special recognition. Stella McCartney was awarded twice, including designer of the year after all the excitement of London Olympics 2012; Cara Delevingne, who in the latest season hit the catwalk over 30 times, won model of the year; and Alexa Chung won ‘British Style’ for the third time; when receiving the award she said: ‘I now live in New York and sometimes get homesick, so it’s great to know that I still get this in here.’
It was a bit of a hazard to catch up with the event straight from the office. Imagine those movie scenes where she changes in the taxi? Well, something quite similar happened with me last night! No hair done, make up, nothing, just put the dress on and get in! I love the improvisation sometimes though. Also by the quality of the photos you will see that I didn’t have my proper camera, but here you go, a piece of my night at the Awards.
Great ceremony. Lovely to see the fashion industry gathered at one place, and don’t know if you are a fan, but singer Rita Ora closed the ceremony. See all winners here.
What do you think about the winners?
I am not a girl that loves to get into crowds, jump in front of stages, get sweaty and soaked in beer at concerts, but last night I couldn’t resist the lovely invitation from MeeMee.com and Trace Publicity PR to a promising event for bloggers of pampering, hotdogs, bubbles and a concert at the O2 Brixton Academy to see Crystal Castles.
I must say it was a greaaaaat night, it wasn’t the intensity of getting in the arena, but enjoying the atmosphere and music, plus I loved meeting other London-based bloggers -pleasure girls- and having fun with this lovely PR team.
The night kicked off with delicous hotdogs from Bubbledogs and manicure session by Team Beauty UK, yes I chose a rare green shade from the Autumn/Winter, something different this time! Then went through the MeeMee.com AW12 collection, from which we chose a garment (wait to see mine!) and we could just get ready for a night of hardcore music. We got to Brixton Academy and were welcomed at the VIP bar (which has the coolest guitar lamps) so we let the fun began… It was freaking scary to look down at the crowds through our windows, they were jumping like crazy; I thought I wish I could know a little bit more about this couple from Crystal Castles band so I could join the mood, however, I did like some of their songs and since I now got the album, I might get in the mood too! Any fans out there?
I can only say thank you for a great Saturday night!!!
