DIY Pop Tab Bracelet


Yesterday night I felt creative and made this cute bracelet!
Me and my sister have been keeping pop tabs for weeks and it was time to do something with them. Then I bought some satin ribbons.
I had an idea how I wanted my bracelet to be, but I didn't know how to start. So I found this video in Youtube where it's all very well explained.
Hope you like it and you do it because it's easy and fun to do!


Ayer por la noche me sentí creativa e hice esta pulsera tan mona!
Mi hermana y yo hemos estado guardando chapas de las latas de refrescos durante semanas y ya era hora de hacer algo con ellas. También compré cintas de raso.
Tenía una idea de como quería que fuera la pulsera, pero no sabía como empezarla. Así que encontré este video en Youtube donde está todo muy claro.
Espero que os guste y que os animéis a hacerla porque es fácil y divertido!

So now I'm prepared for doing NOTHING!!! :)
How are you going to spend these holidays?


Por fin tengo tiempo para escribir un post! Esta última semana ha sido agotadora!
El lunes fue mi cumpleaños (21 ya.. jaja) y lo celebré durante el fin de semana con mi familia y mi novio!
Pero he estado resfriada hasta ahora... y estudiando...
Hoy he hecho el último examen antes de Navidad y las clases se han acabado!!! :)
Así que ya estoy preparada para no hacer NADA!!! :)
¿Cómo vais a pasar estas vacaciones?

Rihanna, Loud Tour 2011, Barcelona


 
On Wednesday night Rihanna's concert took place in the Palau Sant Jordi, here in Barcelona.
When I go to concerts I like to be in the first row so I can see the artist nearer. But this time we had seat tickets, it was ok, but not the same.
First there was some time for Calvin Harris and then Rihanna.
Rihanna was fantastic and I loved a lot her outfits!!! I think The first one was amazing :)
I didn't like the fact that she was 45 minutes late... but later she did it pretty well. There are many people who says that she doesn't sing well live, but I don't think so.
The best song was the ending with "We found love"!

Do you like going to concerts? 
What was your last one?


El miércoles por la noche fuí al concierto de Rihanna en el Palau Sant Jordi, aquí en Barcelona.
Cuando voy a conciertos me gusta estar entre las primeras filas para poder ver mejor al artista. Pero esta vez teníamos entradas para la grada, estuvo bien, pero no es lo mismo.
Primero fue el turno de Calvin Harris, que era el telonero y luego ella.
Rihanna estuvo fantástica y me encantaron sus outfits!!! 
El primero con pedrería es el que me gustó más :)
No me gustó nada que empezara 45 minutos tarde... pero luego lo hizo bastante bien. 
Hay mucha gente que dice que en directo no canta bien, pero yo no creo eso.
La mejor canción fue la que se guardó para el final: "We found love"!

¿Os gusta ir a conciertos? 
¿Cuál fue el último?

The Shopping Night Barcelona 2011


Last Wednesday, me and a lot of people in Barcelona attended to the second edition of The Shopping Night. There were most of the shops in Passeig de Gràcia opened until 1 o'clock in the morning.
Through all Passeig de Gràcia there were activities like driving (playing) a Ferrari, participating in different draws, tasting some delicious food, music, etc.
But more important was the fact that many shops you would never go in, yesterday everybody was inside!!!
I enjoyed a lot going to Santa Eulàlia where they have bags such as Balenciaga, Céline, Mulberry and also shoes like Louboutin. I was so excited!! You'll never know how obsessed with bags I am!!! :)
Some shops like Mango, Blanco or Custo offered some discounts but I think there should be more of them in next editions. Inside some shops they offered some beverages or even popcorn in Mango!!

I enjoyed a lot that night. However, I think many shops had a 'party' spirit that others unfortunately didn't have. But as I said it was the second edition of this Shopping Night in Barcelona so I think year after year the event will upgrade :)

Here you have the photos I took before the event started and during the same.
Hope you like them :)


Before the event started:













During the event:


 Hotel Majestic.



Carme Ruscalleda and Raül Balam outside the Mandarin Oriental hotel.


Musicians in front of the same hotel. 




Custo Pop-up store open until 11th of December.





 In Mango there were more musicians and they were giving free popcorn!


 Swarovski.


 There were some guided tours around the area.


 Ferrari.


 Sisley.


 4t1a, a band which played in the The Brandery area.


 Quémepongo.




 Nocilla crêpes, they were delicious and you could help charity by donating some money.
This is my friend Anna with whom I spent the night with :)


 Guess with balloons from Desigual lol (everybody was with these balloons everywhere).



 Another Mango store, with musicians and free Malibu.


 Judit Mascó in Stuart Weitzman (photo taken from outside the boutique).



 Loewe.













 
Santa Eulàlia: the best boutique for me in this moment OMG I hope the day to have something from there to come!!! lol 
As you see in the photos I only took photos of some bags: my obsession!!!!!! and some shoes, but you can find a lot of clothes and more accessories for either man or woman.
I fell in love the moment I took this last Balenciaga bag and tried it in my arm!!!!! <3
