Blogiversary: a year in review

5th blogiversary - The cat, you and us

Every blog year we have a recap of what had been going on during the last year in our lives, here it’s our 5th year in pictures! If you missed any of the adventures or are a new reader (welcome!) this is the perfect chance to see our whereabouts!

The big spoiler for this next blog-year is that we are changing the looks of our website. We are creating the template ourselves and although we were excited & working hard to have it ready for the blogiversary it will have to wait a couple of weeks (reality crush). We are crossing fingers you love the new looks as much as we do, once it is released. We’ll of course be super annoying with the news here in the blog and social nets, so you’ll probably notice when the new template is in action *wink*. The topics we are separating this post into are precisely the ones in the new template.

So, without further ado, here are our Travels, Outfits, Barcelona outings, and Juno love from the 5th year.


Travel


NYC: Pizza date & Manhattan sunset

New York

If I have to narrow to only one the adventures during this 5th year I would hands-down choose our New York travel.

It was packed with loots of foodie dates, and only for that it would already be a favorite, but New York also steals my heart in lots of different ways: the architecture, people, art and the wonderful photogenic streets. We bought tickets for a musical called “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812” which was one of the highlights, pretty tied with our biking in the city adventure. We ate a Cronut in Central Park and made our dream come true of riding the row boats. The pizza at Juliana’s and the sunset over the Brooklyn bridge afterwards has become my favorite date ever.

Cotswolds

The Cotswolds was a complete different type of travel: scenery bliss!

The walks were possibly the best part, but also because at the end there was this incredible little old stone-town waiting to be discovered. Bibury was the most impressive as a hot spot, but I would choose Bourton-on-the-water or Stow-on-the-wold as a complete town visit. The scones & pastries at the Bakery on the water appear still in my dreams, yum! Oxford added some (HP) magic to the travel. Although we left things to see in the Cotswolds for that getaway, I wouldn’t change it for anything. Loved the University vibes all around: professors in tweed riding a bike, the multiple bookstores, the dorms and colleges at every corner. I work in the University but wish mine was a beautiful as those!

Outfits


Now is the moment

I think the biggest change in my outfits are the madness for jumpsuits that has gotten me all over, and also that I’ve started to buy longer skirts and dresses. I used to avoid them because I thought I would look shorter and more rounded in them, but I no longer care, or at least not so much. I have the typical crisis and run to Dani asking for his advice: Do I look like a bowling pin? But it fades sooner than usual! For colors I have a non-stop obession with pink and pastels, although yellow and red are a constant as well.

Details

My favorite accessories continue to be the head scarfs, I can’t get enough of them and bought my current favorite in Madewell during our NY travel (on the left).

Also pins are always on my lapel, and I was super lucky this year by winning a giveaway to increase my collection. Tights are a constant. I haven’t bought any new shoes during this last year as I am in love with my quirky Toy Story and Disney princesses vans. Typo and Japanese inspired t-shirts are something I always fall for, this year I have tried to buy special ones by buying them from local artists/vendors. Also, this year I have become a professional thief by riding Dani’s closet more frequently: his Waldo and Leia t-shirts feel more my own than his!

Barcelona


99% of our Barcelona outings are always food related. Still, we invited my mom to see the Sagrada Familia church for her birthday and visited the Tibidabo fun fair after 8 years. We also paid our yearly visit to Sitges for our favorite film festival event and, for the first time, we took 1 day off from work in the middle of the week to go to the beach as a detox method from stress. For my birthday, Daniel invited me to eat in one of the best restaurants in the world (Celler de Can Roca) and I melted!

Juno


Catweek: 2 princesses, 1 galaxy

I think I can’t write about Juno without sounding like a complete crazy lady. She is our sun & stars (told ‘ya), our favorite friend. Can’t and won’t picture how life would be if she hadn’t become part of our family.

Those of you that have been reading our blog for a while know well how stubborn she is. Well that is not decreasing with age, quite the contrary, ha! but at the same time she understands us more every year that goes by, knows by heart all our routines and looks very happy when she is able to guess which will be our next move.

    Me encantan, todas y cada una de éstas imágenes! Gracias por el esfuerzo y la ilusión, que pones en cada una de ellas. Hay un trabajo enorme y esto se ve y se disfruta.

    This is so wonderful. Feel like I want to spend a whole day reading it through so I can really absorb it. This is why your blog is my favourite <3 I absolutely adore all your outfit posts – you are my style icon Damaris. I have always felt the same about wearing skirts/dresses that are a bit longer but seeing how great you look I may take the plunge and try something a little longer! Your NYC trip looked fantastic and The Cotswolds looked just dreamy – also makes me still hopeful our paths will cross one day. Your blog makes me want to start one again – especially because things are moving so fast and changing so quickly with little Clémentine. Thank you for this wonderful visual feast and I look forward to seeing the new design xx

    Awww, I will never not love these yearly round up posts! I’m very excited about the new layout — and happy that Juno is a topic on her own :))) So cute!

  6. Audrey | Brunch at Audrey's - 17th June 2018

    Happy 5th blogiversary! I have loved keeping up with your blog over the years and following along your adventures (though I’m sometimes late, but I always get around to it eventually!). // I’ve been making short trips to NYC this summer since it’s not too far from me! Usually I try not to visit NYC too often because there’s always a ton of people, but I have a few friends in NYC for the summer, so I’m really eager to visit them! // Cotswolds is sooo charming! I fall in love with anything described as Harry-Potter-esque :P In fact, I just watched Harry Potter and the Cursed Child a few days ago (and I read the play two months ago), and my friend and I are doing a Harry Potter movie marathon this summer ^-^ // Ooh this makes me want to start trying out headscarves! It seems like a fun way to keep hair off my forehead and neck to keep cool this summer! // Can’t wait to see your new website design!! -Audrey | Brunch at Audrey’s
