LIE ON THE GRASS
DO ABSOLUTELY
NOTHING

_________________________________

While normal people bring keychains and postals as souvenirs from New York, I brought one of the worst jetlags ever after an intense week of fashion week, and today the only thing I can think of is to take life slowly this weekend.

Urban life is, to my eyes, the best kind of lifestyle. The noise, the lights, the adrenaline about the exciting new things you get to see and those irrational conversations with strangers in the subway are some of the things that keep me living in a place like Barcelona, but from time to time is good to leave a day or two on your agenda to turn off your phone, talk to the people you really care about and appreciate the little things in life which are mostly free, like a strong laugh, the grass on your feet or losing yourself for hours within a book. Happy weekend, don’t forget to turn off your phone.

Mientras la gente normal se trae llaveros y postales como souvenirs de Nueva York, yo me traje uno de los peores jetlags que he tenido en mi vida después de una semana de fashion week, y en lo único que puedo pensar ahora es en tomarme este fin de semana para llevar la vida de forma tranquila.

La vida urbana es, a mis ojos, el mejor estilo de vida. El ruido, las luces, la adrenalina por lo nuevo y las conversaciones irracionales con extraños en el metro son lo que me mantienen viviendo en un lugar como Barcelona, pero de vez en cuando es bueno hacer espacio en la agenda para apagar el teléfono, conversar con las personas que verdaderamente nos importan y apreciar las pequeñas cosas de la vida que en su mayoría son gratis, como una fuerte risa, el césped en tus pies o perderte por horas en un libro. Feliz fin de semana, no olvides apagar tu teléfono.

“We need to reclaim time, to have time on our hands, time to waste, time for unplanned conversation, time for biding our time.”

“Necesitamos reclamar tiempo, para tener tiempo en nuestras manos, tiempo para desperdiciar, tiempo para conversaciones sin planificar, tiempo para presagiar nuestro tiempo.”

EAT, READ
& SLEEP
 

A picnic that costs you nothing but the ingredients in your fridge. Take them on a jar, a blanket, a magazine/book, a comfy outfit and your beach bag (it doesn’t have to be a picnic bag but if you have one I’ll be jealous ’cause I couldn’t find one) and lie down for hours. Doing nothing sometimes is the best reward.

Un picnic que no te cuesta más que los ingredientes de tu refrigerador. Ponlos en un frasco, con una manta, una revista y/o libro, un atuendo cómodo y tu bolso de playa (no tiene que ser una canasta de picnic pero si tienes una me pondré celosa porque yo no pude encontrar una) y recuéstate por horas en el parque. Algunas veces hacer nada es la mejor recompensa.

  4. Love this look, Aimee! You can never go wrong with an all black look, it always looks so chic and sophisticated, perfect for NYFW! I can’t believe that those shoes were comfy enough to wear all day! It’s so funny because with my experience the shoes that I have the look the most uncomfortable are the ones I find the comfiest, lol! http://www.topshandbagshop.com

    Overall I think this nails can be a lifesaver for those moments when you really want to get your nails done but you don’t have time to do it or wait after it, or also if you need a quick solution when you have a broken nail too but I probably won’t use them all the time to replace nail polish. I have to admit that while I was wearing the nails I received a lot of compliments from people that thought I was wearing real acrylic nails, nothing bad considering you can get them for about $8 at walgreens.
