Changing ways

Travel season opened this year, in January :)

I used to be very urban and mostly loved visiting big cities, with their museums and outstanding architecture (still love that!) But people change – hopefully evolve :) Changing ways – now I love nature, too. Above all, places with “water”. So in January I went to some places in South America, and was so amazed by what I saw! Cozy little cities, waterfalls, lakes, nice churches!

I was really impressed! Let’s see some pictures! And why not some comfy outfits :)

Old railway tracks, simply fantastic! The sunset made the colors amazing!

A hectic month!

Dec 17th – I had a very busy November and December won’t be very different! So I have many new pictures to share, but I just want to have a day “really” off to organize everything! In the meantime, this post is still on :) – describing trips didn’t end yet! Hope you “forgive” me for the lack of posts now!


Bye busy October – welcome November, with the birthday of one of my lovely brothers:) A nice start with a nice interview – or so I think:) Hope you like it, too!

2nd Oct bad start with KLM airlines‘ huge delay to London, leading to lost luggage. KLM didn’t even offer water. They said they’d bring the bag to my door, which is right, but made me collect it. I told I’d fly to Dublin soon. Nearly missed the flight because of collecting the bag! Finally, after 8 days without going out (9 days with a thin top on), I got it. Lost “museums” time, all ruined. Solutions? The reply: “we won’t write in the usual 10 day-time”. I’m still waiting! I felt awful, even had to go to the doctor.

when things were still ok

Wonderful Rio de Janeiro! Among other things, I seek historical events. The World Cup (not my 1st one) triggered so uplifting emotions! I love pics from planes – that is Amsterdam. Me after 25 hours  flying and waiting. No makeup, tired, but things were still OKish, so why not a smiley selfie!

Things got better! I did have to buy makeup, face lotion, flats, something warm, even a hand luggage bag – they had mine with everything in. I got 2 ponchos – I wore ponchos as a child :) My granny gave me a green one, I loved it. I gave it another try! Reminds me of my sweet granny:)

Oct 10th, 2014 - Finally I could go out, to a museum, see some friends! The makeup I had to buy. I did buy the warm ponchos while KLM retained my bag - the choice was because that one, from Germany, was in the missing suitcase! Finally I could wear it!

Oct 10th, 2014 – Finally I could go out, to a museum, met some friends! The “urgent” makeup. I did buy warm ponchos while KLM retained my bag – the choice was because that purple one, from Germany, was in the missing suitcase! Finally I could wear it! So warm!

Some “October outfits“.The pink shirt honors Pink October, bringing awareness of how important the prevention of breast cancer is! Article on Stylishly Beautiful :)

Two outfits in October

1) Black jacket Les Lis Blanc, Russian hand painted brooch, pearl clutch (amazing!), dress I don’t remember and Gianvito Rossi grey shoes. 2) Pink shirt Brecho Chic, skirt from an Indian shop, laceup knee length boots Rocket Dog – very comfortable to walk!

More looks

1) Black kimono from Germany, Indian vest/waistcoat – don’t remember, jeans Asos and amazing Tsakiris Mallas shoes! 2) Vintage pleated dress, In Vitto phyton boots

I’m posting just once a month here (please go to Stylishly Beautiful for regular posts), but because many nice things happened, I’ll post again soon :) So this was the 1st part of the summary :)

And, as usual, I cooked :)


Avocado dish, my favorite food – that was with asparagus, cherry tomatoes and penne basil salad, my take on a Chilean dish called Palta Reina that I learned from a friend some years ago – it’s now on Vegetabible page. Then squash risotto, I love it!

 To finish the summary, I posted many quotes (some that I wrote) on facebook:



Wearing the beautiful ring my friend Markella (check her amazing blog out!) gave to me!

Finally, thanks for bearing with me! Today Stylishly Beautiful shows my interview for the site, with things that maybe people don’t know about me yet and so on. I’m so excited!

I hope November “gives” me some time for commenting on my favorite blogs! But as Monica, a lovely blogger-friend told me once “life is what happens when we are out of the web”! :)

Thank you so much for your visit and lovely comments! I love them!

Hope you have a brilliant week with many sweet smiles!

P.S. – For my lovely Dutch readers, I have nothing personal against KLM. I have flown with them before – just that now what happened was a real pain! There’s much more than what I wrote here, believe me! It was really bad.

Dresses, hairstyle, trips – some usual stuff

A post a month, but I take care of the blog: new page, Accessories! I may change my mind later. Reasons: 1) I post weekly on Stylishly Beautiful, an outfit too (check it out, you can be featured there!) 2) Here I show bad-quality pics, no need to often post them; 3) And “who cares about casual outfits on my blog?” I’m not Vogue. I post to remember my items, where-when I was/am. Bad-quality pics today anyway :) Enough once a month. Reason #4 is polemic – I’ll hold it :)

September summary, busy! I posted quotes on facebook (many written by myself), bought usual stuff – perfumes, shoes, clothes, etc – :) Back to England-Ireland, after 3 months in a place with winter. Call me crazy – when summer begins I need a cold place. Fall in Europe now, I’m back :)

still fascinated by NatGeo DNA results that shows that shape of my eyes!

Still fascinated by NatGeo DNA results – I see them in my face!

I had my hair cut... after 2 years an a half. Still very long. That's the way I like it. Since I didn't use any mobile for 3 months, I always carry that small camera with me!

A lot!

A lot was cut, got ready for my next venture – feeling fresh is essential!
