July has started really well for me this year, so well that I never thought I was going to use an agenda so much in summer.
During my last trip to London, I bought this lovely one in Paperchase with its corresponding pen and propelling pencil. Since one of my favourite things of agendas is decorating them, that’s how I have started. From the very first page. I have used this cute sticker of Alice in Wonderland from Lycka (I have loooots of stickers from there I will show you little by little).
I hope you join my agenda and get ready to share and enjoy all the posts that are coming…
¡Hola a todos!
El mes de julio ha empezado muy bien para mi este año, tan bien que jamás pensé que usaría una agenda tanto en verano.
En mi último viaje a Londres me compré esta agenda tan bonita en Paperchase con su boli y portaminas a juego. Ya que una de mis cosas favoritas es decorar mis agendas, es así como he empezado con esta. Desde la primera página. Para empezar, he usado esta pegatina tan chula de Alicia en el País de las Maravillas de Lycka (tengo un montón de pegatinas de ellos que os iré enseñando poco a poco).
Espero que os unáis a mi agenda y estéis listos para compartir y disfrutar todas las publicaciones que están de camino…
Yes. I know. I’m not writing as much as I promised. Unfortunately, I never get the time I’d wish to do it. There’s always something more important or I just simply forget it. Sorry.
Anyway, I have to admit that these last months have been full of work, adventures, travelling… so not a waste of time at all!
Today, I want to show you my brand new “lunch box”. It has a lot of imagination and future creations inside since lately, I’m very much into DIY: specially working with washi tapes and doing stamps.
In my next post, I’ll show you what’s inside…
As you know, this blog is about “a little bit of everything”. That’s why I’m writing about one of my new favourite shops: LYCKA. This is a lovely shop in the heart of Granada (Spain) ready to satisfy all kind of people and homes with the trendiest designs from all over the world: art prints, t-shirts, mugs, roomies, trays…
Pamper yourself for a while and pop in the shop or visit their page. You’ll just fall in love with these guys and with everything they have to offer you.
Today, I want to share with you this great iniciative. There are so many young people who are forced to leave the country that has invested so much money in their education… WELL DONE, GUYS!!!
Long time without writing here… (shame on me!). But I promise I will be more asiduous next year.
Today’s message is to wish you merry Christmas and a very happy 2013.
This week, I want to share this recipe that a teacher gave me in London. Though I’m not a chocolate lover, I must confess I really like brownies (specially hot and with some vanilla ice cream!). These are the ingredients:
– 50 gr. dark chocolate
– 110 gr. butter
– 200 gr. white sugar
– 50 gr. flour
– 2 beaten eggs
– 2 handfuls of nuts
Preheat the oven to 170º. Melt the chocolate and the butter in different recipients. While the butter gets cold, mix in a bowl the sugar, the flour, the eggs and the nuts. Once they are mixed, add the chocolate and the butter. Blend very well.
Pour the mixture in a buttered mold and put it in the oven during 20 – 25 minutes. Pierce the centre with a toothpick. If it is dry, it’s ready to remove!
According to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, an anglicism is “a characteristic feature of English occurring in another language”. Spanish is one of those languages, of course. Are we really borrowing words we need or are we just giving our language the cold shoulder?
