La hija de Whitney Houston sale con su hermado adoptivo!

Whitney Houston’s daughter Bobbi Kristina is going out with her ‘adoptive’ brother, Nick Gordon. Though they are not blood related, given that they grew up like a real brother and sister, it does sound disturbing to me. Enough said.

The original article is found on here, ABC.es.


La hija de Withney Houston, Bobbi Kristina, y su hermano adoptivo, Nick Gordon, podrían ser pareja

Tras el reciente fallecimiento de su madre, sus reconocidas adicciones a las drogas, el rechazo del nombre de su padre y sus conversaciones con el más allá, la nueva niña rica de Hollywood se ha refugiado en brazos de su nuevo novio.

Esta noticia no revestiría mayor importancia si la nueva pareja de la hija de la desaparecida diva del pop no fuese su hermano adoptivo. Bobbi Kristina estaría saliendo con Nick Gordon, un joven de 22 años al que Whitney Houston adoptó cuando éste tenía 12. La cantante de «I will always love you» acogió hace diez años a Nick Gordon, un chico al que su madre había abandonado. La estrella del pop lo educó en su casa de Atlanta como si de su propio hijo se tratase.

Gordon siempre ha estado muy unido a Bobbi Kristina pero nadie podía imaginar que la relación se transformarse en algo tan íntimo hasta el punto de salir juntos. El joven publicó en la red social: «Sí, estamos un poco más unidos y qué!!!», solo unos días después de haber subido una foto de ambos sonriendo.

«Bobbi le besaba y le daba la mano (a Gordon). Reían y sonreían, parecían estar muy felices», según una fuente ha confirmado a la web estadounidense «Hollywood Life»

Según parece, la sorprendente nueva pareja lleva saliendo unos meses. Aunque algunos medios como la ABC News dudan de la veracidad de la relación.


5 Reasons to be happy today.

1. I’ve received bonus and it’s a bit more than last year.
2. It’s Friday and it is a long weekend for Gibraltar.
3. I’ve got a Flamenco class and will have a birthday drink + meal with Les afterwards.
4. I went to try the shoes I saw and liked yesterday but found out they were too painful to wear. It’s saved me big £££.
5. I’ve got only one week left before my Korean trip.



Look of the day

Today, my outfit is Olivia Pamerlo inspired – see the photo below.  I came across this look on twitter from people. com and got instantly drawn to it.  Also I’ve noticed that she’s been loving the leopard patterned shoes a lot lately. 

To customise it to my liking and my wardrobe, I put together the following. 

1.  Zara navy blue jacket which has interesting shoulder details.
2. Gap baby yellow light cardigan + Primak orange/yellow-orange cardigan: I think a splash of orange looks better as I don’t have a strong yellow top.
3. Givy blue gray trousers with its signature flower details.
4. Mango dark brown suede ankle boots : Though I do have something similar to what she has, I’ve opted for the boots because I need more inches to pull off this look.
5. Gold accessories: I like my Casio vintage gold watch. It looks like this.
6. LV monogram bag

I think I look nice! lol


Mango baja sus precios por la crisis (Mango reduce prices for the crisis)

I read this article a couple of days ago with a smile. It’s a welcome approach for me. Yesterday I went to Mango with my friend to help her pick out a wedding outfit and I already felt the effect. A cute baby pink jacket with a gorgeous coral dress cost her only £50. Not bad at all. She would have paid £62.50 if she had bought them a week ago. Here is the original article from ABC.es.


Mango baja sus precios por la crisis

La ropa y los complementos de la nueva temporada serán un 20% más baratos para adaptarse a la situación económica.

Kate Moss es la modelo de Mango para la nueva temporada

Mango se arropa contra la crisis. La cadena de moda ha anunciado que rebajará un 20% los precios de su ropa y complementos para la nueva temporada en un intento de adaptarse a la delicada situación económica internacional y al marcado estancamiento del consumojas4084.

La firma, que esta campaña de primavera-verano tiene como imagen a la modelo Kate Moss y también al futbolista del Barcelona Gerard Piqué, suma en la actualidad 2.415 tiendas en 107 países y es la segunda firma exportadora de moda femenina en España. De hecho, el 81% de la facturación de la cadena Mango corresponde a mercados foráneos.

Las ventas alcanzaron los 1.585 millones de euros en 2010, un ejercicio que el Grupo Consolidado Mango MNG Holding S.L. y sus sociedades dependientes cerraron con una facturación de 1.270 millones

Very true.

You’ve gotta try this!

Let’s prepare the following ingredients. (source: google images)

1. One stick of French baguette

2. Honey
3. Extra virgin olive oil (good quality)

4. Requesón cheese (ricotta / cottage cheese)

Slice the baguette and lay them on a plate.
Pour the oil and honey generously all over the slices.
Put requesón on an individual slice.
Eat, then you will be in heaven!!!

How to wear : The Colour Wheel

I think the easiest way to dress well is to know how to combine colours.
If you’ve got a natural knack for it, you are on the wrond page, but not to worry, we have the Colour Wheel!!

I searched the net and found this article. I think it’s straightforward and clear. The following is the excerpt from the article.

The color wheel is an excellent wardrobe tool! In fact it was one of the first things I learned about back when I studied Image Consulting at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Figuring it out isn’t too complicated. Here’s a quick breakdown:

You can make the following combos using the color wheel as your guide:

1. Colors directly next to each other (i.e. yellow and yellow-orange; yellow and yellow-green; violet and blue-violet, etc.)
2. Colors that form right (90 degree) angles with each other (i.e. yellow and red-orange; blue and violet-red; green and orange, etc.)
3. Colors directly across from each other (i.e. yellow and violet; blue and orange; red and green, etc.)
4. Colors that form a T (i.e. blue, orange, and violet-red; yellow, violet, and red-orange; yellow, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)
5. Colors that form an X (i.e. blue, orange, violet-red, and yellow, violet, blue-green, and red-orange, etc.)

Since brown is a neutral, it will go with virtually any color on the color wheel. I love to pair a chocolate brown with cobalt blue or fuchsia or bright red—such a fun and bold combo. Of course white, black, and the hues of blue found in denim are also neutrals that go with just about anything.

I like wearing neutral hues (brown, denim and gray) with a bold accent colour. I also like no3 complementary colours because the coordination is so vivid and upbeat. That’s why I need some shopping to do this weekend.

To begin with, I’ve got a couple of lovely orange tops and red wine/burgundy bottoms and I feel I don’t utilise them as much as I would like to. As you can see, I lack yellow/yellow green tops and cobalt blue/blue violet trousers to complement these. Let’s see what I’ll come back with! 🙂
