I know I usually share my fashion experiences, interviews, designers, events and outfits, but as I mentioned when showing you the preview of the new fun project, ‘One Minute‘, I also want to share a bit more of what I do and spot around there. So last Sunday 24th April, London saw its 32nd marathon, starting from Greenwich up to St. James Park. A big ‘well done!’ to everyone who was brave enough to join the 37.500 runners in the 42 km marathon. I do like sports, but I think 42km is too much of an effort, which requires serious training. I always say “I’ll do it one day”, but gosh I will need a good reason to do it so!.. Anyways, it was very exciting to be around, so here’s a video to show you guys a bit of the busy London and runners on their big day.

It has been raining literally all day, so it makes the Sunday even more lazy than usual (although I work on Sundays). So, I woke up thinking I want to be somewhere warm and sunny right now… trying to be realistic, somewhere close, because to be honest, for me, there’s no better place than Los Roques in Venezuela, P-A-R-A-D-I-SE. However, I thought of this amazing spot I went to last year in Canary Islands. After getting a bus from the centre of Las Palmas, Gran Canaria and a long walk, I ended up in this wonderful turquoise beach in this place called Puerto Rico. Loved it! … Just to shine our Sunday a bit on this side of the world.
Sorry for a completely quite week. Probably, a week in MUTE. I went to Madrid and my server was messing with me again. Also, I had a hacker, or something similar, for sure an intruder. But here I am and with NEW BABIES I brought from my trip!
I must confess I was in need of new sunnies. I lost my favourite Wayfarer Rayban ever – my huge Top Gun frames, yes, Tom Cruise at his good times. Don’t ask when o where because I literally have no idea. I guess I lost them in a fitting room when hunting for my graduation dress, which wait, I never showed you right? That’s a post I will soon share with you. But the thing is that I haven’t been in need of sunglasses during London’s winter. Not even for fashion, since it is gray in the mornings and 4p.m. feels like 9 p.m. already.
However, the sun is slightly lighting the Big Ben occasionally and since I was on my way to Madrid I thought perhaps the sun comes out more often. And indeed I had at least one beautiful sunny day, which I spent in its landmark park, Retiro.
While waiting to board this pair named Dior Pondichery winked and I couldn’t resist. It’s a piece from its Spring/Summer 12 collection… New trend: Catwoman. Grrrrr… Do you like them?

Last London Fashion Weekend I was sniffing around the Somerset House’s tent when I stepped by Sam Ubhi’s collection for the first time. I loved the leather and fringe clutches as well as the rings (I’m ‘ringholic’). She has a very unique style full of silver, colourful stones and casual leather.
I was too curious to met the face behind those creations and as soon as I launched the Interviews page, I thought of having London-based jewelry designer, Sam Ubhi, as one of my first guests, so let’s welcome her!
Find out a bit about her brand, inspirations and how much she travels to import the materials for her designs.
