All Hallows’ Eve

I realise the last couple of post haven’t been the most cheerful ever, so I thought I’d change the mood a bit. This week is Halloween. Every year I plan on doing something, and then every year I never do anything! Last year, I tested a sugar skull design on my face a few days before the date, but then I never painted my face on the day because no one dressed up at work. This year, I’ve tested something again. I tried a realistic skull design, and a cracked golden face one, and I’m not convinced with either. Unfortunately, my skills aren’t very good, and I know someone is already going to the office in a sugar skull full face, and she’s a make up artist, so… Damn! I don’t know what to do. I’ve seen a few really cool designs on Pinterest (yes, yes, I’m addicted to it, we all know that), but I don’t know if I could pull them off… In terms of sugar skulls, I like these designs. I think …

Star Wars

In a galaxy far away…

On one hand, I feel a bit guilty about writing about Secret Cinema, you know, because it’s supposed to be secret and all that. On the other, I really want to share everything I can remember about it with all of you. I don’t want to spoil a lot of what goes on, so this might end up a really weird post. We’ll see… Just in case I don’t manage to keep the post spoiler-free (let’s be honest, I won’t manage), keep reading at your own risk and don’t blame me if you end up reading something you didn’t want to… Deal? I knew about Secret Cinema for a while, in the format of not knowing the location of a film until just a bit earlier (a few days or hours, I didn’t have all the details figured out), but I had never attended one. Last summer, in 2014, they did a Back To The Future one, in which that was the film they were showing all summer, and in theory, it was supposed to …

H is for holiday

I’m officially on holidays (huzzah!) I think I have been waiting for this since my holidays in January (Argentina). The last days at work, I could almost feel my skin itch and hurt! Right now, I’m at home, packing and chilling out with some great music, getting ready for tonight, when I will be flying to Ibiza (I know, I know, those of you following me on Twitter or Facebook are already fed up of hearing me speaking about this holiday, especially in the last 48 hours). Last night, we had another run with the Nike+ Run Club, and it was superhero costume themed. I was so excited preparing the costume, posting pictures, teaser style, and pretty much jumping around in excitement… The previous night I stayed up until 1am finishing my costume and helping Loida with hers… and it paid off: I ran like I had never ran before! (insert big smug smile here). I managed to stop later than usual for the first time, and then have another short stop again, and that’s …
