The book of (my) life

miércoles, 23 de mayo de 2018

Today I bring you a book that I've read a long time ago and that I've profoundly loved. It has indeed become one of my favorite books (the list is quite long now) and I'm looking like crazy for a physical copy, because I think it's the greatest book to have around at all times.
As you might have guessed by the photo, it's by Walt Whitman, and it's not Leaves of grass, no, it's the magnificent Song of myself.
I found in it an oath to existence, to the universe, to life and death and even to dust. The words reveal the significance of everything, and this may sound overdramatic, yes, a little bit, but you need this in your life and I'm about to tell you why.
So, the other day I wasn't feeling very cheerful, so I stayed in and I thought I could start reading this. At the end of the last poem, I wasn't down anymore, I felt alive, I felt full of energy. This was all because of Whitman's words, he found balance in everything around him and he wanted to share it with the rest of us and in my opinion, he quite succeeded on that matter. I'm finding a bit difficult explaining how it made me feel, so instead of pointlessly trying, I'm going to let you find out by yourselves, so here you have my favorite verses:

"The press of my foot to the earth springs a hundred affections, 
They scorn the best I can do to relate them"


"I discover myself on the verge of an unusual mistake. "



"My knowledge my live parts, it keeping tally with the meaning of all things, 

Happiness, (which whoever hears me let him or her set out in search of this day.) 

My final merit I refuse you, I refuse putting from me what I really am,
Encompass worlds, but never try to encompass me,
I crowd your sleekest and best by simply looking toward you. "



"I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain’d,

 I stand and look at them long and long. 

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth. "



"I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love, 

If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean, 

But I shall be good health to you nevertheless, 
And filter and fibre your blood.

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged, 

Missing me one place search another, 
I stop somewhere waiting for you."


“Long have you timidly waded

Holding a plank by the shore,
Now I will you to be a bold swimmer,
To jump off in the midst of the sea,
Rise again, nod to me, shout,
And laughingly dash with your hair.”


“Has any one supposed it lucky to be born?
I hasten to inform him or her it is just as lucky to die, and I know it.”

I apologize in advance if the quotes are misspelled or anything, I got them online, as I actually read the book in Spanish. I hope you like them as much as I did and I hope you get to read the whole book. Feel free to leave a comment with your opinion.

 
Sincerely yours,
Nerea.

Jeans - Lefties

T-shirt - SheIn

Sweatshirt - SheIn

Bag - Stradivarius

Shoes - Adidas



Lo primero que quiero decir es hola, después de todo este tiempo, sé que he estado muy ausente e intentaré retomar este pequeño proyecto lo mejor que pueda. Lo segundo es que sé que esta vez os traigo demasiadas fotos y soy consciente, pero es que simplemente no podía decidirme entre todas las que habíamos sacado, ya me costó deshacerme de las que me deshice. 

Este es uno de mis conjuntos favoritos, porque adoro especialmente cada pieza que lo forma por separado. Es especialmente cómodo y eso que hacía un calor abrasante cuando salí a la calle, aún así no me arrepentí de ponerlo y no quise sacarlo. Es una de esas cosas que te hace sentir bien, una comodidad que va más allá de las condiciones del medio. En resumen, estoy obsesionada con todo lo que llevo puesto, por muy simple que sea el outfit en general. También quería mencionar la sudadera, Modern Vampires of the Night. ¿Se puede pedir más? Sinceramente, lo dudo. Álbum perfecto, sudadera perfecta.

En fin, dejando a un lado el look de hoy, quería hablaros del futuro de este pequeño espacio de la web. Mis deseos son de continuación y espero que se hagan realidad. Tengo planeados muchos cambios y quiero modificar el enfoque del blog, pero no os aburriré con mis planes, probablemente no se cumplan ni la mitad. Lo cierto es que no sé si podré darle mucha continuidad y por eso no quiero hacer promesas, pero sí que me gustaría. Ya iréis descubriendo los cambios. De momento, espero que disfrutéis con esto. Muchas gracias por visitar el blog y por leer la entrada, se agradece.

_________________________________________________________________________________

First of all, I'd like to say hi, after all this time, I know I've been absent and I'll try to retake this little project the best I can. Second is that I know this time I've brought you way too many pics and I'm aware, but I just couldn't decide among so many, it was already hard to get rid of some to be honest. 

Now, moving on, this is one of my favorite outfits because I love each piece of it in a special way. It's just so comfortable and even though it was way too hot on the street, I still didn't regret wearing it and I didn't want to take it off. It's one of those things that make you feel good, a comfort that goes beyond the circumstances. To sum up, I'm obsessed with all the clothes I'm wearing, for much simple that it looks like. I'd also like to mention the sweatshirt, 'cause, come on, look at it, Modern Vampires of the City. Can I ask for something more? Honestly, I doubt so. Perfect album, perfect sweatshirt.

Whatever. I'd like to talk to you about the future of this little spot of the web. My wishes are to go on and I hope they come true. I've planned so many changes and I want to modify the approach of the blog, but I won't bore you with my plans, half of them will probably not come true. Truth is I don't even know if I'll be able to go on with this, that's why I won't make any promises, but I'd really like to. You'll be noticing some changes soon. For the moment, I hope you enjoy this. Thanks for visiting the blog and for reading me, I appreciate it.

HIATUS

Lo siento, pero no tendré tiempo para publicaciones hasta haber acabado los exámenes por junio. Es un curso muy difícil y no puedo permitirme distracciones, espero que lo entendáis.
Sorry, but I won't have time until I'm done with exams in June. It's a rough year and I can't afford distractions, I hope you understand.

DRESS - PRIMARK


Lo primero de todo es que siento no haber podido subir nada la semana pasada, pero apenas me queda un mes de instituto y es difícil sacar tiempo. Lo segundo es que es muy posible que esta semana vaya a Londres un par de días, así que intentaré sacar fotos y ser más activa en Instagram y Twitter, no dudéis en seguirme(dejadme un comentario o un tweet diciendo que venís de aquí y os seguiré ;).  Y bueno, este es el resultado del shoot de esta semana. Últimamente hace calor, así que decidí ponerme un vestido, este es uno de mis favoritos, tanto por el estampado como por la forma. Normalmente no me pongo vestido,  a pesar de que me gustan un montón y tengo bastantes, soy una persona de vaqueros todos los días, pero de vez en cuando me gusta cambiar un poco. He de decir que me costó un poco encontrar unos zapatos para poner, pero al final me decanté por unas simples plataformas negras.

First of all I want to apologize for not posting anything last week, but there's barely one month left of school and it's hard to get time. Second thing is that I'm probably going to London for a couple days next week, so I'll try to be active and take photos, don't hesitate on following me on Instagram and Twitter (post a tweet or a comment saying you come from here and I'll follow back ;) Well, this is the result of this week's shoot. It's been kind of hot lately, so I decided to wear a dress, this one is one of my favorites, for the print and the shape. I usually don't wear dresses, despite liking them a lot and having quite a few, I'm a every-day-jeans person, but I like to change that every now and then.  I must say the it took me a while to find shoes for this dress, but I decided to go with some plane black platforms.

Lazy afternoon

Este es mi outfit más casual, es supercómodo, sobre todo para ir a clase y resulta muy práctico en esos días en los que da pereza hasta vestirse. Leggings, sudadera y zapatillas. La sudadera es una de mis favoritas, la compré el verano pasado en el CNE, en Toronto. Guardo muy buenos recuerdos de aquel viaje, espero poder volver :) En esta ocasión decidí añadirle unos anillos para complementarlo.

This is my most casual outfit, it's super comfy, perfect for school and really handy on those days were you don't feel like doing anything, not even getting dressed. Leggings, sweatshirt and sneakers. This sweatshirt I bought in the CNE, in Toronto. I keep great memories from that trip, I hope I can go back one day :) In this occasion I decided to add some rings to complement it.

CHANANANANANANANA BATMAN!

sábado, 21 de marzo de 2015










Hoy me apetecía ponerme algo cómodo y veraniego, ya que acabamos de empezar la primavera.
Es el conjunto ideal para un plan con amigas o una cita informal. Mi parte preferida es el gorro, ya que soy una gran fan de Batman(además me va a juego con la funda del móvil ;). 
Los crop-tops son una pieza clave en mi armario, aunque quizás me precipite un poco al sacarlos con este tiempo, lo cierto es que son el 80% de mis camisetas. Y por último, los zapatos son algo que veréis muy a menudo, pues se trata de mis zapatillas favoritas.

Today I was feeling like wearing something comfy and summery, as spring has just begun. This outfit is ideal for a friend's plan or an informal date. My favourite part is the beanie, as I'm a huge Batman fan(besides, it matches my phone case;).
Crop-tops are one of the main pieces of my wardrobe, although I may have put them on too early, but truth is they're 80% of my T-shirts. Last part are the shoes, which you're gonna see a lot here, because they're my favourite sneakers.

T-SHIRT - H&M
SHORTS - PULL&BEAR
BATMAN BEANIE -(GIFT)
SHOES - ADIDAS

Let the spring come!

domingo, 15 de marzo de 2015










En esta ocasión me decanté por un vestido, ya que parece que el tiempo empieza a sonreírnos. Personalmente me refiero a él como EL vestido. Llevo buscándolo casi un año y finalmente me llegó a casa esta semana. ¡Me llevé una gran alegría! Es genial para cualquier momento, tiene su toque de elegancia, pero bien se puede vestir en cualquier ocasión. Lo que más me gusta del vestido es la parte de atrás, espalda al aire, con un lazo. Siento no poder poneros fotos de ello, pero no conseguí sacar ninguna que me gustara. He de confesar que, a pesar de no haber encontrado mi talla, lo anhelaba tanto que lo pedí en una talla más. Es algo que no os recomiendo hacer, pero no pude resistirme y lo cierto es que no me arrepiento. ¡Ooops!

This time I decided to go with a dress, as the weather is starting to smile to us. Personally, I like to call it THE dress. I've been looking for it for almost a year and I've finally got it this week. I went really exited about it! It's great for any occasion, it has a touch of elegance, but it's perfect for anything really. What I like the most about it is the back, it's crossed with a bow. Sorry for not posting a photo of the back, but I didn't get to take a good one. I have to confess that, even though I couldn't find my size, I ordered it a little bit bigger, I craved it badly. I don't recommend you to do that, but, to be honest, I don't regret a thing. Oooops!
