Hello! How was your New Year’s eve? January 2015 is finally here but thanks to this section, where we feature our phone snapshots – and are willing to keep rolling through this year! – I’m able to go back to the past and share our odds and bits of the last weeks of the (now) old year. During December I felt like a busy bee but in the good way, we were decking up our house with all the Christmas decorations, being thus able to anticipate the holiday days thanks also to the winter markets and festive feeling all around: christmas lights, songs, lattes… everything!
Hold tight, and let’s go back for a few minutes to the month where Rudolph rules!
On December each year we have an unavoidable date with the World Press Photo exhibition at the CCCB (Contemporary Museum of Barcelona). We prefer the stories over the war pictures but always makes for an interesting (and sadly quite rough) trip to what humans are making to this world or to each other.
This picture was the winner of the 2014 contest, where African migrants on the shore of Djibouti City try to catch an inexpensive signal from the neighboring Somalia to talk with their loved ones.
Palo Alto market was a welcomed new addition to the handmade, design and vintage market arena in Barcelona. Although the beginning was rocky because they had to close on the second day due to some organizational problems, we loved the venue and that they will open once per month.
The giant balloons are an identity stamp of el Festivalet market. Hope you saw our pictures, in case you still haven’t, jump to the link and see all the cuteness there!
We received our first ever Christmas card from a blogger pal! :) Thanks Mei from Ice Pandora! It made us extremely happy and the reindeer sweater is still with us on the living room.
Christmas dinner table decorations, we like it mix-matched, can’t you tell?
Dani and his new circular scarf (christmas present) have become inseparable companions, I think I have a serious contender! ;)
We learnt that you can order Starbucks’ Christmas specialities sans coffee making me the happiest gal :) Gingerbread latte is my favorite while Dani favours the toffee nut latte (in his case, with coffee shot). Where you able to taste them this year?
Gran Via st. on Barcelona featured this year one of the most photographed (and polemic) christmas lights with onomatopoeias like “gulp gulp gulp”, “muack muack muack”, “ding dang dong”.
December you were that good that I’m already missing you, couldn’t we stick a little longer, we have plenty of time for the freezing January, don’t we?
