GIFT GUIDE

Yeap. I was thinking about what should I do next with my hair… The thing is being blonde is really harsh on your hair. It got really damaged and weak, so I was thinking about cutting it short again (something like this or this), to get rid of all split ends and overall bad looking locks. However, that in between phase annoys me to death.

And then, suddenly, an e-mail from MANGO drops into my inbox to tease me about their new Premium line for Spring’15. I loved the model’s haircut right away. It’s just perfect and has everything to do with my mood. 😀

The Lookbook is gorgeous – inspired by the 70’s (as many other collections now in stores) but with a minimalistic approach I love.

And who’s she? She’s Alba Galocha – a spanish model and blogger I’ve just fell in love with (perhaps because of her androgyny I’am still so very fond of). Feel free to check her blog here.

As for the amazing Lookbook, I’m gonna try to find who’s the photography and styling by, cause I just loved it! 🙂 You can check all the pictures (and shop) on MANGO’s website.

As for me, I’m going to wait for the morning so I can make an appointment at my hairdresser and take care of this ASAP! 😉

Here’s the second Gift Guide for the males of your life. You can check the first one here ( there’s one for the girls too). It’s funny how at first I couldn’t think of anything and now I am actually cutting back in options… Again, my favorites here are: the very cool, but classy MASSIMO DUTTI helmet; the bowtie William Masters inspired; the patterned socks, because it is a fun approach to a highly traditional and dull gift; and the mug, because it’s full of stuff worth reading while having coffee in the morning (for those who do)! 😉

So, next week comes the third and last helping hand, to assist you in those final presents. Also, second ‘girls edition’ coming this weekend. 🙂

Oh, hello December! This year went by terribly fast or it was just me felling that way? In no time we’ll be clinking champagne glasses and watching fireworks. But, in the meantime, we still have Christmas, and it’s always a regretful idea to let your Christmas shopping to the last day. Have you taken care of any of your Christmas presents yet? Confession: I haven’t.

Anyway… We already talked men’s gifts, as well as my personal letter to Santa, and now it’s time to focus on the gals – besties, mothers, sisters, etc. I find it easy to pick presents for women – the hard part for me here was to narrow it down to 10 suggestions, and I didn’t even included shoes, home decor, books or lingerie, for instance. But next time. 🙂

So hope these help. 🙂
Enjoy the rest of your sunday, and have a nice week!

As promised, here’s the first Christmas Gift Guide to hopefully give you a hand these holidays. I decided to star with Him, and by ‘Him’ I mean boyfriends, brothers, fathers, friends, etc. I started with men because they are the ones with whom I usually struggle more with ideas… I am guessing I am probably not the only one, so I hope this little mash up of ideas helps you too somehow. 🙂
My favorites? The Swatch Watch (love it even for me), the Esquire Cookbook (I have great respect for Esquire – I actually like it more than most women’s magazines – and this looks great; plus, a man who cooks well is already ahead of the curve for most women, isn’t he? 😛 ), and the Punch Bag Laundry Bag (it’s funny and can prove itself quite useful, right? Perhaps I should get one for me too…).

Happy shopping! And thank God tomorrow is already Friday! 😀
Next guide – now for the ladies – coming this weekend.
See’ya!
