Food & Fashion in Bond Street

Bond & Brook restaurant at Fenwick Bond St
This Saturday we had lunch at Bond & Brook, a new fashion-inspired restaurant, inside Fenwick Bond Street. Not only it's beautifully decorated in minimal white and silver, but also has a great collection of fashion books, which I personally enjoyed!

Olivia's Baby Shower

Thanks to my lovely London girl friends, yesterday we could enjoy an amazing baby shower in honour of the little girl we are expecting, Olivia, and it was a complete surprise for me! I didn't expect it at all! 

It was a pink-themed garden party with lots of beautiful details, including a custom-made flower arrangement in a wooden box with the baby name handprinted on it... My great friend Cristina from Muscari London was in charge of the flowers and decor of the party. 

Thank you so much girls! I loved the party and the baby gifts and had a great time with you all ! Thanks for coming!

Mar Flores con pantalón de Etrala London en Ibiza
Qué sorpresa nos hemos encontrado hoy cuando hemos visto a Mar Flores en su blog de Telva con nuestros pantalones print de la última colección en un look súper veraniego que igual le sirve para estar en Ibiza que para ir de viaje... Nos encanta cómo lo ha combinado con camisa de rayas masculina y complementos en contraste... ¡¡viva la mezcla de estampados!!

SCOOP INTERNATIONAL - London Fashion Show


Last Monday we attended one of the most important fashion trade shows in London: Scoop International. It has been running just for a few years -launched in 2011 by fashion industry expert Karen Radley-  and it has been an amazing success.

"Scoop is a boutique womenswear trade show, showcasing emerging and established directional fashion designers across two London art galleries: the Saatchi Gallery and Phillips."

DIY: Cushion with Baby Name


Once I had finished the Cloud & Star Baby Cushions I decided to make another cushion for the cot with our baby name using the pink and white felt I had left. 
Here you have the step by step tutorial so you can make your own with your baby name in your favourite colours! 

Después de hacer los Cojines con forma de Nubes y Estrellas decidí hacer este otro cojín para la cuna con el nombre de nuestra niña, aprovechando los restos de fieltro que me habían sobrado. 
Aquí os dejo el tutorial paso por paso para que podáis hacer el vuestro con el nombre de vuestro bebé en el color que más os guste.

DIY: Cloud & Star Baby Cushions ☁ ✭

As some of you may know, Emilio and I are expecting our first baby girl, whose name will be Olivia. As I am passionated about handicrafts, especially sewing, I have started making many DIYs for her, most of them inspired by the easy and cute ideas I usually find on Pinterest.
Today I will show you how to make your own (and so trendy) cloud and star cushions for the cot. 

Como algunos ya sabréis, Emilio y yo estamos esperando a nuestro primer bebé, que será una niña llamada Olivia. Con mi afición por todas las manualidades y especialmente la costura, me he animado a hacerle muchos "Do It Yourself", la mayoría inspirados por las ideas tan monas y fáciles que voy encontrando en Pinterest. Hoy os voy a enseñar cómo hacer tus propios cojines con forma de nube y estrella (tan de moda) para la cuna.

FashTech Event - London Technology Week


Last week we were invited to take part of the event FashTechLDN, hold at the London College of Fashion, about the rapidly growing world of Fashion and Technology.

We attended the event and had the opportunity to meet very interesting start-ups, most of them working on creating amazing tools to get online shopping easier and quicker. For instance, apps that can try your size on or find where to shop clothes spotted on pics or videos..

DIY: Distressed Boyfriend Jeans

Inspiration


Inspired by Emilio's latest jeans purchase, we have been busy up-cycling one of his old pairs by giving them a seriously distressed feel. The look is a major summer trend and one which will take you through the long summer months - prefect for trips to the park and nights out. Easy to accomplish, this DIY trick will make you look and feel good - all you need is a boyfriend with a spare pair of jeans!


Keep it simple with a plain blouse or loose tee
Wear your ripped jeans with heels to go for a more feminine look

Or if you're just chilling, pair your jeans with sneakers


How We Did It

To make the rips get hold of some scissors and tweezers - remember the work is in the detail
so pull out those threads with all you've got!

Video
To see how we went about creating the ripped effect, take a look at Rachellea's YouTube tutorial below and have a go yourself!


The Final Result


The finished effect


Tiny frays are cute so why not revamp the pockets too?
