The weather blues...

I should be continuing the previous post, but I have absolutely no energy at the moment. Will finish it as soon as I feel like it, there will be some good recommendations there, hopefully.
On another note, why oh why does it have to rain tomorrow?

Stupid stupid.

Great walking shoes

Here cometh a little recommendation from me to you. I have been walking home from work almost every day since March (Except for a 6 week vacation hiatus, 2 weeks of which I jogged daily. The other 4 were spent in Barcelona, where jogging isn't really an option in the summer heat. I did, however, manage to walk a lot around the city.). The walk is 10 kilometers, the majority being on asphalt.
It is part of my exercise regimen, as I am preparing for something major (but secret... sssshhh!). I have had minor back problems for many years, but even though the problems have been minor, the pain has, at times, been severe. I have also noticed that when I walk a lot on asphalt I do get knee pain. Which, considering the impact of the hard surface, is normal.
I had heard about MBTs, but I wasn't really willing to pay the big bucks for those, especially when living outside the production country. They are next to impossible to encounter online and I would've had to pay import tax/duties on them anyway.
Behold the Skechers Shape-Up. I started reading reviews online and quickly found out that, even though they were inferior in quality, considering the price difference, they were well worth it. I decided to take a risk and ordered my first pair online, on the Victoria's Secret website.

*First draft, will continue post tomorrow...

Eugenio Recuenco

By far my favorite photographer, here are some of my favorite shots (I think they are all from the same editorial):

More drama

Translation: I miss you. I don't want you to be like this with me. :(

It is tempting to answer. It really is. But I shouldn't, I really shouldn't. So I won't. But no holds barred right here!
First of all, I am not "like that". You have been "like that", deeming my reaction natural and in proportion to your behavior. Second of all... YOU miss ME? You gotta be kidding me. How the hell did I act when we met, eh? That's right, like a lovesick puppy. I have had a crappy year and this seemed like the only real highlight I would have, but you went and shit all over that, didn't you? Resulting in more crap.
It takes a whoooole lot more than a lousy Facebook message or two for me to even talk to you. I'm talking getting-on-my-knees-and-apologizing type shit. But you need to realize this on your own, this is something I have absolutely no intention of telling you.
I need to know you care, because, as of late, all you have shown me is that you don't give a shit.

Sunday, August 8, 2010

You don't know what you have done. No sabes lo que has hecho.

That's a fact, you don't. If you knew, if you could possibly imagine, if you had the faintest idea of the impact that your carelessness has had on me, then you'd never ever even consider acting the way you did. You told me I hurt you when I didn't come see you.

I hurt YOU?? YOU were hurt by ME???
You have no idea, do you? No idea that I have spent hours crying because of you and your behaviour. I really want to hate you but I can't. The only hope I have is that you will regret what you have done, how you have acted and somehow come crawling back.

But I know too well that you'll never do that.

Así es. Si hubieras sabido, si hubieras podido imaginar, si hubieras tenido alguna idea del impacto del descuido tuyo sobre mí, no habrías hecho ni considerado hacer lo que hiciste. Me dijiste que te dolía yo por no venir a verte.

TE dolía YO?????
No tienes ni puta idea, verdad? Ni idea que he llorado por horas por ti y tu manera de ser. Quiero odiarte. De verdad, quiero odiarte, pero no lo puedo. Mi unica esperanza es que vas a lamentarlo, lo que has hecho y venir a mi lado, disculpandote un millón de veces.

Pero ya lo se que esto no pasará.

Golden girl

I've been thinking about getting my hands on some gold nail polish for a long time now, but I've kinda laid it on the back burner as I'm not a big nail polish person. Then, today I was checking out Elin Kling's blog and saw, amongst others, this picture:

Well, technically it isn't polish, but some type of foil. I will still try to replicate it with polish. It looks deliciously good.

I am trying to sleep, but there's this loud music keeping me up. As I currently live in the suburbs, this is very strange. Why someone hasn't called the cops yet, I wonder, as this music has been going on all day. I feel like calling them myself (if not for me, then for my dog), but I have absolutely no clue where it is coming from.

My God.

Me wanty want

Usually I'm no big fan of Acne, as I find things such as their shoes a bit "wannabe-edgy" and very... meh, in lack of better words. But this jacket is wonderful:

It is only €490 and you can get it here.

I got drunk and lost 2 toenails!

I'm so pissed, will tell you later...

I've started watching this show

(This is the the pilot episode of Aquí No Hay Quien Viva, if anyone should wonder...)

According to every single Spaniard I've asked, this is the best Spanish TV-series made (as, according to them, Spanish TV sucks...).

So, what do you think?

Yet another oldie but goodie ;)

Did you know that in the US:

  • 64% of adults are overweight 
  • 26% of adults are obese (this means that 2 out of every 5 overweight adults are obese!)
  • An estimated 25% of children and teenagers are overweight or obese
We all know obesity is a problem in the US, but seeing it in numbers all puts it into perspective, doesn't it?

Good morning, all...

I have to leave the house in less than 20 minutes. And I'm still not dressed.
Oh, how I hate mornings

Teen werewolves

As I am a big fan of Lamebook, I had to share this:

Oh, the followings pop-culture breeds...

What a week...

Jeez, this really has not been my year. With all the drama I've had since December... getting sick, losing friends, getting depressed, quitting jobs, etc, I thought karma had given me enough shit to deal. But ooooooh no! I had 2 jobs up until January/February, when I quit my other job due to depression, i.e. an inability to work. So I kept the job I liked the most, the job I could still do well despite my mood swings and whatnot.

But guess what? I have become the scapegoat of some serious shit. Without going into further detail on what I do, I'll let you know that my job (being in the public sector) has serious organizational and leadership problems. Of which the biggest leadership problems are in the division I work in, Division 3 (there are 5 divisions). The boss of Division 3 is severely incompetent and, to be quite frank, a lazy ass. Now, I am a good and hard worker, I always have been, so I have been able to get by despite the obvious problems. I am on a limited contract (expires end of June) and I have been asked to as well as expressed interest in continuing the job in August (after vacations, we are closed in July). Suddenly, there's been a turnaround. I am uncertain as to what has really gone down, but I assume my boss has been asked to explain the obvious dysfunctionality of our division. Apparently, she has put the blame on me. This is, of course, the easiest way out, as I am on a limited contract (unlike my colleagues in the division) and I am an easy scapegoat. I won't go into specific details into what they have told me, but they have as good as retracted the job offer.

Well, I say, fuck them. No really, fuck them.
If they can't see an overly competent worker for what they are, then I'm going to leave them to be screwed. Because with the way it is at the moment, with that kind of leadership, they are truly screwed.
Dayumn, I will never EVER work in the public sector again.

What the...?

Finnish bhangra? Now I have seen it all.

Salmonella and acute bronchitis

As if I haven't been sick enough this winter, here we go again...

Sunday, May 16, 2010


I went out last night, which was stupid, as I have completely messed up my body clock. I went out with some friends and, of course, found myself some fun fun fun for the night. Which resulted in very little sleep and me basically sleeping the day away. Then when I got home I went to bed and slept for hours. Now I'm really dreading tomorrow, as I'm sure this night will be one of very little sleep, but I guess after a glass or 2 of champagne I'll be feeling a whole lot better.

Shopping is bad

So yeah, I've been shopping a bit, mostly for the big day on Monday, as I needed a lovely bag and shoes to go with the dress I'm wearing. I actually bought the dress almost a year ago, but haven't had the opportunity to wear it yet.

First the things I bought yesterday on Wednesday:
A cute flowery dress for really hot days this summer. In Barna I hope?
A cute lace top for... well I'm not sure, I just know that I've been wanting a lace top like this for a while...

Now for what I got today:
Navy ballerinas for my navy dress. Great for a day like May 17th.
Straw bag with detachable chain. I just adore the bamboo lock on this. I can see myself using this a lot this summer.
My booze for Monday. 3 liters of sweet bubbly 8% fun.
Two buttons. Yes, I know, highly interesting. I will be choosing one of these to replace the childish flower button I have on a jacket of mine. Yup, planning to wear that jacket on Monday.
The highly interesting part. Stuff for hair and nails. Explanation not needed.

By the way, check out how orange tanned I'm getting!

Diane von Furstenberg

This dress was featured in net-a-porter's newsletter today. Its not really my style, but I do think it is gorgeous.

Picture from


Well I still have a cold. My initial disease might have been salmonella poisoning, but I'm not sure. I've been well enough to go outside the past few days and so I've agreed to join some friends in a May 17th breakfast. I want to look nice, so I'm tanning like crazy, exfoliating and moisturizing, the whole shabang. And even though I'm getting a slightly orange tinge, it is working well.

The other day I bought some Japanese candy that I love:

I usually wear tiny g-strings while tanning. I never tan naked, I think its disgusting. I used to think this kind of underwear was sexy, but when I see it now, its sooooo 2002. Here's the one I wore today, just to show ya.

Today I went to a different tanning studio, in the eastern part of the city centre (ghetto time!). I desperately needed to go to the restroom there, even though I'm really no big fan of public restrooms. Well, there was a girl/woman down there with a lot of stuff washing herself or something. I dunno. She didn't look too bad, but I think she must have been a junkie. She had on an Ed Hardy cap, guys...
The other thing about this tanning studio is that I found the tackiest sunbeds ever. The brand is called Cadillac and, yes, they are made to look like Caddies:
Needless to say, I didn't take my chance with it. Eek.

I did a tiny bit of shopping yesterday, I might amuse you with pictures later.

This depresses me. The climate is getting colder and, by the looks of it, the worlds economy isn't looking up either. That means I probably have to stay. Here. To work. In the cold. I can not have another winter like that. I just can't. I have been sick more times than I can count. But there is nothing waiting for me further south.

I don't know what to do.

Cloudy day in Iceland

That is nice, but what's going on with the volcano?

I'm speechless...

These definitely beat the "can i eat..." one:

I love this picture!

Miley Cyrus walks in the tracks of Christina Aguilera and Britney Spears

OK, so I'm not a fan. And I'm tired of all the sexing up in the music industry. Apart from that, I'm posting this because Miley is getting criticized for being "too sexy". C'mon, she's what? 17, right? Girl has got to grow up sometime. What is it with all the hypocrisy overseas?

By the way, doesn't she really remind you of Hillary Duff in this video?

Wang sports bra

Very happy with this!
I'm a size 32B and the small fit perfectly.
I really think it flatters my rather wide shoulders.

Back to business...

Friday, May 7, 2010


Dear H,
I will NOT be visiting you. That won't happen. Why? Well, first of all, you have the mixed signals you keep sending me. And, as I am observing, to all other girls. I know, I know, you think it makes you desirable, but, in reality, you are just digging your own grave. Because I know you. I know you're not that confident about yourself, that basically all you do is put up a front. I get that. My self-esteem is down in the gutter too, which is probably some of the reason I actually liked you. I could relate to you. And I could see past the act as well as your extremely horrible wardrobe. Which is why you can never do better than me. Yes, I am cocky when it comes to this. Because I know it is the truth. Both physically and personality-wise, I know I beat out all the other girls whose interest you've caught. How do I know? Well, I've seen these girls... I've met them and I've talked to them. Sorry dude, but they ain't got nothing on me.
It is quite sad though, because I really like you and I thought we had something. Initially I had the impression that I kinda broke your heart just a little bit when I reacted to your outpour of feelings, but, in retrospect, I think you were and are fine. But I still think we could be great together, its just bad that you had to go and spoil it all. I was not sending YOU mixed messages, I have made it quite obvious that, yes, I wanted to see you. Well, life goes on, doesn't it?
Muchisimos besos,


I've had what one'd call an uncomfortable day. I got sick yesterday and it has been really uncomfortable. My stomach bloated to twice its normal size and, I have to admit, that is incredibly painful. While this was going on, I started getting nautious and went an entire night trying to get some sleep, but between the pain and the nausea, it was nearly impossible, even with painkillers. Finally, at 5 in the morning, I had an awesomely long sequence of vomiting and, after that I could finally get some shut-eye.

Now the vomiting is all gone, but I'm still feeling that stretching pain in my stomach (but thank God it has returned to almost its normal size) and my throat feels like sandpaper. I've been living on Coke and salty things all day, my appetite is still close to zero.

All I've done today is watch downloaded episodes of Criminal Minds, Bones and CSI: NY, so at least I've been chillin' like a villain.

Anger management?

I am pms-ing big time and it does upset me easily. Sometimes I can't seem to control my anger... then later I regret it. Well, just a little.
Mood swings suck.

Good morning, sunshines!

What is wrong with FaceBook?

What is happening to humankind?

Sensible madness...

I went ahead and cancelled my entire H&M order... they must be pissed at me now over there, but the order was adding up to almost €1000 and that is just silly. So I went ahead and ordered a designer piece instead. For a cheap buck, of course.
This asymmetrical Wang bra is "soooo me" and I can't wait to wear it as outerwear. Hee hee...
The picture is from and you can get the bra at LVR for less than €45.

Perfection :)


I was googling the edibility of expired eggs the other day. (Yeah, making cookies is fun) What struck me was the amount of strange things people are checking if they can eat. When I typed in "can I eat" in the Google searchfield, this wonderful list caught my eye.
  • can i eat after 6
  • can i eat poop
  • can i eat cat food
  • can i eat cheese during pregnancy
  • can i eat honey when pregnant
  • can i eat philadelphia when pregnant
  • can i eat sushi when breastfeeding
  • can i eat yogurt on a low carb diet
Now this might be another list altogether for you, based on regional differences. But, c'mon people; poop? Who would even want to know, much less be in a situation where this could be necessary?


That is one big RedBull!

May is here!

Stupid boy.

Do you expect me not to notice a wallpost?

Random bitch: umm are we ever going to see each other again in this lifetime??
Idiot ex: yes we are! both are coming to my city to start that trip that is pending! You know i love you , you know i miss you! ;) i want u back!!!

Bitch doesn't even speak his language!

Fuck it, asshole, I'm over you.

k loves...


The picture above by Eugenio Recuenco is part of an editorial which (along with different Sci-Fi tv-series) is my biggest style inspo at the moment.
Me love.
I adore.

White and color

I really like these shoes by Report Signature.

They are $230 and you can get them here.

Am I becoming creepy?

I think I am stalking one of my ex-boyfriends. I am (hopefully) going to see him this summer, but at the moment he is very busy with school and exams, so I'm not hearing a lot from him. Yeah, it is sad, but I don't really mind being slightly pathetic at the moment. Everybody wants a hot stalker, right?

Saturday, May 1, 2010


These shoes are super sexy!

Get them here.

I learned something new today.

Lady Gaga has "the Hollywood Disease"...
That does explain a lot of things.
By the way, I learned this from an 8-year old.
From the mouths of kids and drunk people, I tell ya!

My favorite intoxicated people

Frustration and annoyances

I am getting frustrated at work. Even though I really like my job, there are some things there that really annoy me that makes me not want to continue after the summer. I won't go into details, as they'd be highly uninteresting, but my points of view tell me I'd be an excellent boss. Truly fantastic one, at that. In a way this makes me sad. Finally something I enjoy doing and it has its moments that make me want to quit. In another way I'm glad. I am just looking for an excuse to go follow my "dreams". Or at least my heart. I actually don't have the balls to do just that, but I'mma do it anyway. You only live once, right? Why spend your life in misery?

New droolable

Well I had my H&M basket all set up. Then I found this beauty:
Its perfect!
I think I'm gonna scrap most of my H&M stuff for this. It is £95 and you can get it here.
