Anonymous said: Hey there. :) I really adore your style so I got a quick question for you.. At the moment I'm looking for a transitional jacket. I currently wear my A.P.C Trench to death and I'm looking for another jacket that is elegant but cool aswell. I Mostly wear black highwaist skinny jeans, Breton shirts and sneakers. Could you recommend something for me? :)
Get a bomber jacket!!!! A.P.C. makes pretty decent ones almost every season. Last year I bought a 70s seersucker jacket from A.P.C. that looks like a bomber jacket - best purchase ever.

Hi. That is so cool. I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve been to Barcelona now. When are you going? If you’re there during Primavera sound festival or the Sonar festival, you should definitely try to get a day pass or something. Sonar is just magical even if you’re not into electronic music. Otherwise I like to just walk around, go to the beach and food markets, explore the Gràcia area, hang out in Born or El Raval, check out the amazing and controversial architecture, visit Parc Güell, Mies van der Rohe pavillion, MACBA, eat, and have fun. Here are some shopping and food recommendations:
Coquette in Born (A.P.C., Vanessa Bruno, Isabel Marant, etc)
La Boqueria (food market!)
Food and drinks
Bar Cañete in El Raval
Bar Lobo in El Raval
Quimet & Quimet (get there early. LONG LINES!)
Restaurante Rincon de Aragon in El Raval
Boca Grande (for a toilet visit. Man, it’s the craziest toilet ever. Go there for a decadent cocktail as well)
Moritz in El Raval. It’s a brewery (I don’t drink beer) but it’s also a restaurant and a bar. That nineteenth century brewery was renovated by Jean Nouvel, so if you’re into architecture you should check it out. (Nouvel is the architect behind Torre Agbar aka the penis tower)
Bacoa in Born for burgers. I haven’t been to that place yet because it’s always been closed whenever I’m in the area (for instance don’t go on Mondays) but I’ve heard they make legit burgers.
Dos Palillos in El Raval
And if you want to go clubbing, check out resident advisor.
“The one thing I know for sure is that feelings are rarely mutual, so when they are, drop everything, forget belongings and expectations, forget the games, the two days between texts, the hard to gets because this is it, this is what the entire world is after and you’ve stumbled upon it by chance, by accident––so take a deep breath, take a step forward, now run, collide like planets in the system of a dying sun, embrace each other with both arms and let all the rules, the opinions and common sense crash down around you. Because this is love kid, and it’s all yours. Believe me, you’re in for one hell of a ride, after all––this is the one thing I know for sure.”

It's always so fresh and chic. You are an inspiration for me. I've not questions for you, just needed to send to you all my admiration for your work. Sorry for my english, I'm a french girl living in México city. Merci!

Anonymous said: hi lady. been following your blog for a while now, i'm a big fan of your taste and your mindset. i need some advice - a friend of mine's mom recently passed, and i'm not sure what to do besides offer to talk/sit quietly/hang out/stay away? i know everyone grieves differently, but what did you find helped you when you went through the same experience? anything would be extremely helpful.
Hi there. So sorry to hear about your friend’s mom. :-( One of the things I found very overwhelming right after my mom passed away was all the condolence messages I received. I know that people were only caring but I constantly felt bad about not replying to them as I had a lot of other things on my mind like my mom’s funeral, relatives from all over the world staying in our house, and everything. So I needed some kind of “space” from being reminded of my mom’s death all the time. My friends were the best. They were updated on my mom’s situation, from the day she had a stroke till she was gone and everything that happened after that, in a group chat on Facebook. My friends would meet me if I needed to talk or if I needed a hug or to just talk about frivolous things. In my case, the fact that I knew that my friends would be there for me no matter what was really helpful during tough times. They would check in on me from time to time but also give me space if I didn’t reply to messages etc. So perhaps you should just ensure your friend that you’ll be there for her or him, and that your friend can reach out to you whenever she or he wants to. Most of the time, I just wanted to talk about anything but sadness with my friends and hang out.

Jeg har både tatt opp fag og tatt nye fag på Bjørknes. Anbefaler Bjørknes på det aller sterkeste. Har lært utrolig mye mens jeg har tatt fag der og de aller fleste lærerne er ekstremt dyktige. Finnes jo alltid et par unntak da. Det er bare å maile meg om du vil ha navn på bra og mindre bra lærere. Hadde i hvert fall verdens beste mattelærer i S1+S2. Undervisningen er intens; cruiser gjennom pensum veldig fort, men sammenliknet med universitetet så går undervisniningen i sneglefart. Miljøet på Bjørknes blir til det du gjør det til. Det første året jeg gikk der ble jeg kjent med de jeg var på kollokviegruppe med. I matten fikk jeg en skolevenninne som har blitt en av mine nærmeste og senere roomie – noe som kom overraskende på meg siden jeg ikke har en eneste venn fra videregående. Tok opp to fag på Bjørknes dette halvåret også, men jeg snakket ikke til en ENESTE sjel. Jeg var så dypt deprimert at jeg verken hadde lyst eller overskudd til å snakke med noen. Hatet alle. Haha. Og for å være helt ærlig så angrer jeg på det – tror jeg hadde fått større utbytte og glede av fagene om jeg ikke hadde stirret på gulvet på hele tiden.
