Practical guide to make pasta (like an italian).

Welcome to your cooking lesson number...

As like I have (surely) mentioned to you before. My knowledge in cooking is quite limited and my needs to learn such art grow everyday.  

To me, the easiest thing to cook is pasta. Maybe not the most nutritious BUT you can deffinately make it more interesting if you add good healthy ingredients ;) 

So let's go! Let's get cooking!!

Weekend Mood Inspiration: A trip to Guanajuato, Mexico

This week has been very special as my parents in law are visiting Mexico to meet their grand - son for the very first time. These are some of the images that I took while we were at Guanajuato, which, in my very personal opinion and for quite some dear reasons, is my favourite city in Mexico. 

I hope you enjoy this pictures. They belong to the streets in City Centre Guanajuato, the Mercado Hidalgo and the Ex - Hacienda San Gabriel de Barrera.

See you soon ;)

The three generations reunited at the English Garden. 

The little one who had to keep himself moving... and running..

The Beauty Routine.

Have you got a beauty routine?

I can't really say that I do but I am certainly trying to keep one. Specially as my life continues to drive on the 30's road (not complaining).

It is a weekly routine of "intense" care and pamper that I like to do on Sundays.

Here is what I intend to do (I don't always get to do it all):


* Natural Colour Treatment: Black Tea  to maintain natural& healthy brunette colour (plus getting all sorts of anti - oxidants).


* Rosemary cream for those experience scars.


* Grapefruit gel to help slimming certain stubborn areas.


* An oil combination treatment to hydrate and nurture.


* Hydrant Cream for stronger, healthier and better protected nails.


* Scrub & deep cleanse.

* Anti - aging gel. (sniff...)


* Get rid off all extra beauty hair.
* Cut surprising long nails (including my little one's).

What about you?? Have you got a special beauty routine? Any essential products that you recommend?? Would love to hear your thoughts!

How to Feng - Shui your style!

Some weeks ago I couldn't help to read this story published by both Elle.com and Refinery29.com about whether or not should one Feng Shui their hair

At first I thought it was (quite frankly) a bit laughable but my curiosity made me click anyway. As it turns out it is not only a very interesting topic but also I found myself reading all week - end (and a bit more). 

So how does it work? First you need to know what birth element is, according to the year you were born: 

Then you can check from the following chart what shapes, colours, characteristics, etc. distinguish your birth element (so you can choose your clothes, accessories and even perfumes accordingly!)

Now, you need to keep in mind the energy flow. Each element feeds and is fed by another. So, using myself as an example,  being a water element I will feel stronger by using metal elements (and water features too, of course) whilst wood will "steal" my energy. 

If you would like to see examples of what I mean, there is a great collection of examples that the following website provides (and that I really recommend):


Here are some examples of what you can find there!

What element feng - shui are you? 
Do you like the suggestions made according to your birth element?  
I love them!!

Mood inspiration: Summer in London.

This past few weeks I have been applying and submitting my portfolio to different greeting card companies and stock imagery agencies; and like with any kind of paper work it has not exactly been exciting to be filling out tax forms, taking some evaluations, filling out some more info and then waiting for the process to be evaluated, etc.. 


After all that... I am now selling my photos through a couple of agencies worldwide :)
AND I have had some pretty good reviews about my work as well as having acquired some new interesting followers :) (Thank you and welcome to you all).

Reviewing what I have got and what I need to update has made me realize a few facts:

1) I need to re - organize the way that I have been working. 
Now, I shouldn't panic. I just need to look at it from different eyes: It is an opportunity! 

2) By filling out some applications (and trying to answer a few questions) I actually was pushed into thinking about the philosophy or the reasons behind my vision. Which was inspiring. 


I am cleaning and bringing out from the archive what I have lying around. Let me show you some photos I took a while back but for some reason (procrastination or simple forgetfulness) never made it to post - production.

These pictures were all taken in London in different occasions. 


There will be more to come :)

As I haven't really finished going through all of them.

And lastly.. before I forget... There is also the news of both my blog and magazine project (in spanish) are now being properly monetized (yes I know I have been busy, busy..).

I will continue with the same policies and goals of each website and I promise to you that when sponsored I will let you know :)
