SPRING IS ALREADY HERE! After this cold, cloudy, and crazy winter we've had at Valencia (specially last days of the season) just looking for a cup of hot chocolate and staying warm under tons of blankets, looks like the sunlight and nice weather are finally approaching us.

I'm a lucky girl for not having any allergies because of pollen and weather changes, so I find Spring a nice moment to start again with recovered batteries and give the best of you to the world! Sometimes I feel like a teddy bear who just got up from a long nap, but it's what Spring makes me feel. It's finally that time of the year to remove the dust from my bright lipstick colors, start wearing florals and getting rid of some of the lots of layers I wear everyday to finally use fresh and comfortable dresses and skirts.

Following the first inspiration post I did about two months ago which had an incredible reception (THANK YOU ALL!) I thought it may be that time of the year to share some brights, textures and flowers, flowers everywhere!!

Peaceful vibes

Sometimes we make a day-trip to Oropesa just to check on the flat and town house that everything is OK and maybe carry things there for the coming summer season. Oropesa is mostly known because of beach season and the town reaches its population peak on summer, so in winter the place looks absolutely different than it does when it's sunny and warm. Almost no-body walks by the seashore, it's usually windy outside and only the elderly occupy the benches near the sea. I like the atmosphere and the contrast between the two sides of this town.

Although we shot this pictures like two months ago (sorry for the delay on sharing them, guys) looks like we're having the same depressed, cloudy and dark weather right now! Rain hasn't allowed me to go outside of my beloved pajamas and cozy blanket on the last week or so. Only at few, punctual moments of diner with friends and the "Girls' Night Out" days ago. Besides, I've been working (more or less) on my class projects and the column for my habitual collaboration at Chapelle Magazine which will be launched soon! Meanwhile, rain keeps falling down, and I can barely see how am I going to carry my 3D models and plans to School on the coming days for revision. Somebody help me!

Also, just remembered the event coming this Friday! As we're just in the middle of our Architecture studies (only less than 3 more years to end, yay!) and it's also the middle of the course, a party will be hosted to celebrate. Similar to a regular Prom diner and ball, I guess. Classy and sparkly outfits, classmates jokes and celebration. Not sure if I'll share something around here (it all depends if the pictures end "visible"), but I hope so. At least a little sneak peak of the makeup, or outfit, or the vibes around the party which will be fun for sure!

Chapelle Magazine

Last Thursday, half past eight in the evening. These last few days have been chaos everywhere, like you couldn't imagine. Ever. But sometimes one must stop for a while, breathe and start setting priorities. Start again from zero and keep going. I feel like I want to do a lot of things, either start or end some issues that must be done as soon as possible, but sometimes it gets really difficult.

Anyway. As some of you might know, I've been friends with Eduardo and Natalia since some circumstances lead us to share our enthusiasm for fashion and design. I can say that Eduardo's designs have travelled a long way since I met him about a year ago, and it's really great to see how far he's already done with his designs as E. Jairycovich. So, when he asked me to occasionally collaborate on his new project as a columnist for Chapelle Magazine, I couldn’t say anything but "of course!”

Thursday evening I had the pleasure of attending the very first event held by Chapelle crew. We met at the lounge bar of Astoria Palace Hotel, one of the main spots downtown where lots of important events (including fashion, like the Younique launch party some years ago) are held. A cozy evening with few guests to celebrate having a new meeting point in Valencia to discuss about fashion and for new designers to share their art now that Valencia Fashion Week has been closed. We spent the evening set with music, friends and a short but very intense fashion show. There was even a local television echoing the party -and I was interviewed, lol-.

Certainly a night to remember! Hope to see all of you soon joining us on next events, and congratulations -again- to Chapelle crew for their great job!

Inspiration: Industrial design

While some people are usually afraid of running out of inspiration, I always like to go and search for muses myself. That quick. They won't always come to you as you have to go look after them. And as they say "inspiration exist, but it has to find you working".

It may sound weird, but I'm thankful to my career (and also the blog!) for requiring me being looking for new stuff and inspiration every day. Specially if it comes on images or by graphic material, it's really boosting to create ideas not from zero, but from something I saw before and it's been stored on my brain. It can be anything: a pattern, a drawing, a picture, texture or color scheme. Sometimes it's amazing how a textile or design can give me ideas about a new architecture project I'm taking, or viceversa. That's the reason behind my Pinterest account where I store everything I like... Just in case, you know.

For those of you who don't have an account, or follow me yet, I've though about posting some inspiration posts featuring some images about a topic once or twice a month. I'm sure it'll be fun! You can also help me by sending your inspiration pics, topic ideas or whatever you want at somethingfashionblog@gmail.com You know I'm always up to propositions and sharing ideas! I thought a dose of industrial design featuring white, wood and clear lines would be a nice option to begin with this series. What do you think about it?


5 (annoying) things I've heard as a blogger

fashion blogger issues somethingfashion annoying 5 things list opinion


It's been almost 5 years now that I started blogging, and I can say I've seen and heard almost everything when it comes to fashion and this subject which is having a blog. Let's be honest: I'm not a superstar fashion blogger who gets featured on high, lifestyle super known magazines and Valencia is a tiny city compared to New York or Los Angeles. Maybe those are main reasons why the blogging thing is mostly unknown by people around here, and it is also the kind of place where people stares at you awkwardly when you're shooting outfit pictures in the middle of any street. It used to bother me a bit, but now I don't really care and I always try to explain my hobby to anyone who asks about it.

So, the last purpose of this post is to bother anyone, but to face some of the things that nobody explained to me when I decided to share what I loved on a blog, and encourage all of you to keep working on all your projects whatever they're about and whatever might happen. Let's take this as a fun, constructive way to face and solve some facts that come when you become that thing named as fashion blogger.

Did some of the following ever happened to you? What sort of things bother you being a blogger?


  • Why do you write in English if you live in Spain and speak spanish on a regular basis?
This project started the first time I traveled to the US to improve my English, so I thought it could be nice not only to improve my speaking but also my writing. Talking about what I loved, liked or inspired me would become my motivation to master a language I was learning. Then the blog became bigger and I realized writing in English allowed me to not only gain more readers, but also to understand and be understood by a large following I couldn't have achieved if I only wrote in my mother language.
