Birthday rule #2: Surprises are a must. Specially if they live abroad and you haven't seen them since christmas

That's why when my best friend from Spain, Juan, crossed my front door while examinating my spots in the bathroom i couldnt believe it. -you've got to be kidding me! was all i was able to say for the next couple of hours. I've spent so many special moments with him he really does feel like a brother to me and by flying over just to spend a couple of days with me proved me right. So I showed him what London means to me: my cool friends, cake anytime of the day, Saint Martins, full english breakfasts, my favourite pool on earth, crazy parties at night and well, also he had to see the Big Ben, my mum's request...
So thank you, Juan, for the best present of 2009!

Por eso cuando mi mejor amigo de Oviedo, Juan, cruzó por la puerta de mi casa mientras yo me exploraba los granos en el espejo del baño no me lo podía creer. -Estais de coña es todo lo que pude decir en las dos horas siguientes. Hemos tenido tantos momentazos que de verdad siento que es como un hermano para mi y volando solamente para estar conmigo un par de días comprobé lo cierto que es. Así que le enseñé lo que para mi significa Londres: Mis amigos que son los mas guays, tarta a cualquier hora del día, Saint Martins, desayuno Inglés, mi piscina favorita, noches de fiesta loca y bueno, también tenía que ver el Big Ben, por insistencia de mi madre, que también, lo quiere como a un hijo.
Así que Juan, gracias por el mejor regalo de este año!


Also thanks to Josh (California) from for his original bday post! And Gabry and Ale (Milano) from
for the I LOVE MYSELF t-shirt!


Birthday rule #1: Once a year treat yourself with a luxurious item. Happy Birthday to me:

Many things happened on my birthday and the days around it. I normally get a birthday week, ya'know. Soon, (almost) all the details. Stay tuned!

Tantas cosas pasaron en mi cumpleanios y los dias previos. Normalmente tengo una semana de cumpleanios, me encanta. Pronto (casi) todos los detalles!

Amazing people die too - R.I.P

I know, it's really sad but He will always be in my mind and all over Beyond Retro and Rokit, in amazing never been washed, super smelly tees. So he'll keep rocking it.

Girl, close your eyes
Let that rhythm get into you
Don't try to fight it
There ain't nothin' that you can do
Relax your mind
Lay back and groove with mine
You got to feel that heat
And we can ride the boogie
Share that beat of love

I wanna rock with you (all night)
Dance you into day (sunlight)
I wanna rock with you (all night)
We're gonna rock the night away

Ponystep feeds us

It was yesterday afternoon when, after complaining via twitter about my inexistent social life due to the last Saint Martins project before holiday, that I got a message from Richard Mortimer (,  inviting me to the relauch dinner at the Wapping Project

And you know what I didn't even have to think about it because two main reasons made me drop my patern master and run out of Soho is that anything Richard organizes is worth going to, no matter what other plans or duties you had in your agenda and, also, anything hosted at the Wapping Project, (that amazing gallery-restaurant), its worth going to too. Even if that means getting your BMX and cycling down to whatever that area is called.

So there I was, surronded by amazing and fun people (including lovely Beth Ditto!), simply Ponystep style:


Fue ayer por la tarde cuando, despues de quejarme via twitter sobre mi inexistente vida social debido a ultimo proyecto saint martino antes de vacaciones, recibi un mensaje de Richard  Mortimer ( invitandome a la cena de re-inauguracion en el Wapping Project. Y es que no tuve ni que pensarmelo, la invitacion reunia dos de las tazones esenciales que me hicieron soltar la regla de hacer patrones y escapar de Soho: Cualquier cosa que Richar organiza merecera la pena y cualquier cosa que se celebre en el Wapping Project es obligatorio ir. 
Asi que ahi estaba yo, rodeado de gente increible y divertida (incluyendo a la amorosa Beth Ditto!), al mas estilo Ponystep.

Guess where I am (4)


Having a laugh with Michelle, Alex and Anders at a pool party. Jodie Harsh playing vintage Madonna at my second place, Shoreditch House, obviously.

Also, met an amazing buyer who I always wanted to introduce myself to, hopefully coffee with her next week!

And this is what happened after a few drinks!

De risas con Michelle, Alex y Anders en una fiesta en la piscina. Jodie Harsh pinchando Madonna vintage en mi segunda casa, Shoreditch House, claramente.

Ademas he conocido a una buyer a la que siempre quise presentarme, probablemente caera una cafe con ella la semana que viene!
Y esto es lo que paso despues de unas copas!

Cut and paste.. I mean, sew

I was on my bike on my way home bumping into every single person from the fashion industry like Katie Grand and her amazing electric blue Marc Jacobs bag that got me blind when I realized: Only two weeks left of my second year. 14 days to go before we go on our gap year to do placements. Not scary, exciting! But I'm gonna miss those late afternoons in the studio, having a laugh, trying on leggins made by Jasmine and basically enjoying ourselves.

Fue de vuelta a casa en bici cuando me encontré a toda persona perteneciente al mundo de la moda como Katie Grand y su increible bolso azul eléctrico de Marc Jacobs que casi me deja ciego cuando me di cuenta: Sólo quedan dos semanas para terminar  segundo. 14 dias y empezamos el año de trabajo en empresas, que ganas! Voy a echar de menos esas tarde en el estudio, echandonos unas risas, probandome los leggins que Jasmine hace y basicamente, disfrutando haciendo lo que siempre quise hacer.

These are the times that I'm gonna miss when I grow up. I'm already feeling nostalgic about it. But then no. I don't ever allow myself to feel nostalgic, that's a weakness. We should always look forward. There is so many things to come. Good and bad. So here I am: waiting

Ésta es la época que mas voy a echar de menos cuando me haga mayor. Ya puedo sentir la nostalgia, pero no. Nunca me dejo sentir nostálgico. es de débiles. Deberíamos siempre mirar haca delate. Hay tantas cosas por venir. Buenas y malas. Así que aquí estoy: Esperando
