Today I was thinking about the different emotional stages we humans must face sometimes. And just as I was thinking about that, my eyes gazed upon my poetry collection book that I hadn't read in a long time. Instantaneously I felt the need to grasp it, so I reached out and opened it. I came across a poem called Algo.
Algo means "something" in English and it is about how I found out that my grief was gone and how hard to believe that was.
I wrote Algo in 2008 and I must confess that even thought the poem expresses freedom from grief, I did go back to that grief again years later. Since that return, I've been working on having the life I deserve, and have vowed not to settle for less. It may sound harsh but it's working; it is!
Traveling has opened my heart and mind; it has taken me to a new level of spirituality and calmness.
However, it has not lead me to leaving the little pleasures of life behind and, most importantly, it hasn’t cause me to forget where I came from. I came from this perfect universe, and I've been blessed enough to be here, to experience joy, fear, love... And because I’ve received so much I want to give, too, by sharing my uniqueness and transformation.
Today, As soon as I thought about all of this, I threw a casual outfit on, grabbed the book and ran to the park to record a video reading for you!
I’ve matched my outfit with my poem, I hope you enjoy it! Here’s the video of Algo, or Something in English
Here is what I wore today.

I really hope you enjoy this video and the poem, for those of you who Spanish. For those who don't and would really like to hear it in English I'll make sure to translate it for you, just let me know in a comment.
If you also like my outfit also, let me know what you think, I'd love to hear your thoughts. Your comment is important to me.
Tons of love,
I must point out that this blog is mainly for sharing experiences related to my traveling but since I love fashion I’ve decided that every week I'm going to share one of my favourite outfits. So this is "My Outfit of the Week" this week!
I am not fan of one particular brand and I like combining different styles. I may often wear expensive items alongside cheaper ones.
For example, in this week's outfit, I am wearing:
- Prada sun glasses
- Furla handbag
- Massimo Dutti trousers
- O’stin top
- Mango trousers
As you may notice, some of the brands are not expensive, such as O’stin or Mango, but when well-selected cheaper brands can make you look like a star.
I hope you enjoyed the video.
I'd love to hear from you now. What is your favourite outfit this summer? What is your favourite colour? Leave a comment bellow!
Thank you in advance for liking and sharing.
Tons of love,

Last week I finally let myself believe that the arrival of summer was now almost a fact. I say a fact, because we are talking about Moscow, where the weather is quite unpredictable.
My first winter in Moscow had been really hard and to finally feel the fresh summer air and the warmth of the sun, and smell the fragrance of a nature in bloom was rejuvenating.
I heard a little voice telling me, it's time to move, to be more active.
Luckily, my partner felt the same way! So he suggested we went rollerblading in one of Moscow’s many parks – getting back into shape whilst enjoying nature. I was a bit hesitant at first, since I had never done rollerblading before, but I was willing to try.
We went to a rollerblading club’s shop, located in the heart of Moscow and renowned for its quality products. I tried on different rollerblades: for beginners, for jumping etc. Suddenly, I was terrified! I wondered if all this was going to be was me spending money on something that I would probably never use. I decided I was going to leave it for now and give it a bit of thought. We were just leaving the shop when a girl on a scooter rode past us.
“Wow!” I thought. I’d had an epiphany! We immediately went back inside the shop to check if they sold scooters. They did! The price was twice that of the rollerblades but I knew I was defiantly going to make my money’s worth; I could just see myself "scootering" around Moscow, having a great time. And at that, I wasn't even yet aware of all the advantages of riding a scooter! At that moment, I simply saw it as a way of recreation, transportation and an opportunity to be active.
It wasn't until I dived into the Internet to read about all the benefits of riding a scooter, that I felt even more compelled to continue "scootering" around. I love this article here about losing weight by riding a scooter.
That same day, my boyfriend and I wandered around the city with big smiles on our faces, making jokes, feeling more alive than ever, discovering new places we hadn't known about. We also happened to walk past the zoo and we're now considering going and checking out the diversity of exotic animals in there. (I loved the fact that most of them seemed to live in large spaces, which probably makes them feel free.)
We ended up having our favourite pizza at Osteria Bianca - one of the best Italian restaurants in the center of Moscow. We had a great evening - we enjoyed a glorious sunset and we remained full of adrenaline all the while.
You can watch the video I made that day; I ended up "scootering" inside one of the biggest underground stations in the city. It truly was a very special day!
This experience led me to the conclusion that we must do what we love, and that, by taking action today, our lives can be far better tomorrow.
One quote I truly love is this one:
“When you are present in this moment, you break the continuity of your story, of past and future. Then true intelligence arises, and also love.”- Eckhart Tolle
So, tell me, what activities have you thought of doing but never tried? What stop you from doing it? What did you enjoy doing that actually transformed your life?
I would love to hear from you!
Thank you so much for commenting and sharing and for being such a special reader.
Tons of love,
