The Grass is greener on the other side.

So... It's been a while again since the last post. I'm not used to this post-everyday thing, mostly because I spend my time looking at other blogs. :) I have to learn and that's the best way to do it. Me thinks.
Anyhow, I've been up to many things. Some gigging, some paperwork in Germany (which is something quite big), some wandering around and visiting Dresden, shopping (not much), looking after some visits, and all sort of things a girl can do.
My life is about to change its path again in a couple of months too, so I'm kinda busy preparing for it, both mentally and physically.  Is funny how life can take you from one point to another, sometimes even not realizing how big these changes can be. I reckon that it may be because you eventually get used to this kind of thing. Changes, I mean. Maybe, you loose fear or maybe you just accept what life brings you trying to get the best you can out of it. Who knows.
The fact is that I'm happy with all that's about to happen, even though I know it brings some negative side to it too... (not everything is positivism and pink colour here).
I've learned that no matter what or where, I'm always gonna be sometimes happy and sometimes sad, so... bring it on!
I consider myself very critical, very demanding even so. But hey, you are the one who chooses the way your life might be, huh?

Just to light up this too serious and philosophical nonsense, here you can check some pictures out. Enjoy and thanks for visiting!

rOlling stOnes!

Last Friday I went to a friend's birthday party. The party was great and perfectly hosted by two lovely greek people, Anna and Evangelos. There were around 10-12 people all equally nice. Berlin was hot for once and I was in the rush to wear my recently acquired Rolling Stones playsuit. I bought it for 9 pounds in Primark on a visit to London two weeks ago. The quality is not the best, as the fabric is quite see through and I know it won't last many washes until it falls apart, although I couldn't resist to buy it for its cute cut. I was wearing fishnet thighs and peeptoe booties that I bought a few years ago in Primark London too.
You can't really appreciate it on this lousy picture, but I was wearing a beautiful and
minimalist necklace from Forever 21 that I bought for 4 pounds.

I hope you like the outfit!

Spring is coming!!

Tiergarten (Berlin)

Well, I am sure that you are all tired of reading this sentence lately (or a similar one) everywhere. In our 'daily post' nowadays AKA Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etcetera, but the truth is that, for some of us, this is a reason of celebration. Let me go deeper about this...

I am, since the beginning of 2012, living in Berlin and, although this is "the new place to be", the cosmopolitan metropolis of Europe, the base of the best Techno DJs (WTF?¿), and the amazing centre of Music and street art, is also the 'Oh! Is so cold that I don't want to live anymore' place. For around 8-9 months this is a grey, cold and depressive place so, when the warm temperatures come is like I am awakening from a never-ending hibernation. I feel alive, happy, cheerful, active, and creative, on the go!

I find myself, therefore, writing this entry in my long time ago abandoned blog. I don’t know which direction this is going to take. I don’t know if it’ll be full of ‘Instagram-y’ pictures of my everyday-life in Berlin, or perhaps, an allegory picturing myself enjoying my other passion: fashion. (Crom, save me of becoming an empty ‘OMG’ ego-blogger). All the old entries were, as you can see, pictures of pixel dolls so maybe is time to make it for real and to use all that creativity for good.
What I know for sure is that, somehow, music will be present at all times! Welcome!
