The DIETOX Challenge


I´ve seen it lately in a lot of blogs and magazines from Spain and was dying to try it but they only delivered in Spain, so you can imagine the happy surprise when I checked their website and....taddaaaaa!!!!..... Dietox delivery to all Europe!! :-)

My smoothies arrived early in the morning, just in time for breakfast!

All the bottles come with a description (Sun Dose, Craving Antidote, Andalucian Prescription, Berry Boost, Green Cure, Dream Elixir) and with a time indication of when you drink them. 

Overall, I liked the experience, I liked how you feel after a whole day of fasting, your body just... feels good! There is only one thing I didn't like.....3 of the 6 smoothies where really disgusting undrinkable, the combination of flavours was just too strong and I couldn't even manage to drink more than a third of the bottle... Maybe its just me not being used to it...Have you also tried them?

I have mixed feelings about trying their Winter Edition.....Will I like all the flavours??

The Clarisonic Miracle


Ok, in US it's been in for a while so it's no big news, but in EU it recently made its appearance and I was dying to be the happy owner of one of them!

The first thing my husband said when he saw it was: what do you want that giant toothbrush for???

And actually, that's the perfect example! The same as an electrical toothbrush cleans better than a normal one, Clarisonic cleans better than your hands or cotton! Normally, cleansing your skin is the most boring part of the evening beauty routine, but with the Clarisonic, those days are over! Just dampen it an put some cleanser on the brush or directly on your face and in 1 minute you are done! (Believe me, you would want it to be at least 5 min! ;-) )

And the best part of all....it's addictive! It leaves your skin incredibly soft, glowing and as soft as a baby's skin! 

Definitely, THE perfect Xmas present!

(PD. sorry for the terrible quality of the pics)

I recently spent some days in Mallorca with friends and my very good friend Carmen stunned us all with these amazing sunglasses. I kept stealing them from her and finally took the right decision of getting my own from Mr. Boho Sunglasses website! :-)
Can´t wait for them to arrive! :-)

Industrial Amsterdam Ij



I was happily spending a relaxing boat day in the canals with friends when we ended up in the industrialised Ij.

There are several  nice restaurants with terraces which are very recommendable, specially with good weather!! Try Pllek, Noorderlicht or Ij-kantine!

Coolest Camera Bag - Ona Bags




It is a fact that camera bags are horrible. They are not only ugly, but they also give an implicit message: I contain a valuable camera, please steal me!

So I started an extensive search on the internet to find a nice, functional bag for my DSLR. After seeing many (believe me, MANY) bags I finally came upon this brand and I immediately knew I was soon going to have the perfect coolest camera bag!

Ona has several models, from bigger to smaller, to more casual or more elegant and I finally went for the model The Bowery in black! It easily fits a DSLR camera, 2 lenses and the battery charger!

Spring in the canals


Well, the spring is not really here yet, but the day it comes I will be wearing cheerful colors to welcome it!

I will be ready with my really old Comptoir des Cotonniers trench (or maybe I should already call it vintage!), my Wayuu bag from Colombia and my blue-stripes-with-neon foulard from SissyBoy.

Rollende Keukens - a MUST if you are in Amsterdam these days

If you are in Amsterdam these days, you MUST visit the Rollende Keukens! You have until this Sunday!

I would describe it as a food festival in which the stands....have wheels! 
Look at the pictures to understand! ;-)































And with a drunken oyster (oyster in bloody mary) all left to say is.....Cheers!!!!
