THE BROKEN HEARTS CLUB


So, we have all been through this, right? We all have had a crush on a good looking guy, the heartbreaker type. I used to be quite smart and told myself "you don't want to get hurt like that". My Mr Right came along one day when we were both in high school, and we've been together since.
Then one day it happens - cause it has to happen, right? You find evidence you wish you hadn't and you break down. Turns out that guys that don't seem to be assholes at first, end up being so. Surprise!
During the following weeks you feel hurt, fooled, devastated, mad and suddenly (after watching Bridget Jones's Diary for the millionth time and eating everything you could find until there is nothing left), you feel nothing. There is only calm (and fat, but I guess my boyfriend won't care since he has someone else, right?) and you can think more clearly, with a little perspective. Yeah, I didn't deserve that, you womanizer.
Is it so hard to find someone that won't make you suffer? Does that possibility even exist? Maybe we are blinded by love on the big screen and we got it all wrong! We have all dreamt of a great big love, consuming even. But what about polite and respectful? Should we give up on love as we know it?
We all make mistakes, don't we? Sometimes men bring you down, but others they get you so high. So, is it worth it?

A BRAND NEW START

Brian Lichtenberg T-shirt and flower crown by the amazing Cristina Tamborero.
First of all, my apologies for the long silence. All I can say is that I didn't feel inspired and I felt like I wasn't being constructive or posting anything that could be useful. I've been through a lot lately and I realized that it would have helped me a lot to read other people's thoughts on this kind of issues. And here's when this bright idea came up. Am I only concerned about what celebrities wear, the latest shows or things like that? Not at all.
A few weeks ago I was heartbroken, how to get over that? That led me to think about breaking my 8-year relationship, but I've been dating the same guy since I was 14 so, how do I break up with someone? What am I supposed to say? And afterwards, finding true love in this crazy world we live in. I had many mixed emotions as a teenager but wow, that was supposed to be just a phase not a lifestyle!
I really hope you enjoy the new Lula Darling and like the new design.

Primero, mis disculpas por la ausencia. Lo único que puedo decir es que no me sentía inspirada y no me parecía estar haciendo nada constructivo ni escribiendo nada que me pareciera útil. He pasado por mucho últimamente y me he dado cuenta de que me habría ayudado mucho leer las experiencias y opiniones de otras personas que se hayan podido encontrar en la misma situación. Y entonces se me ocurrió la gran idea. ¿A caso sólo me preocupa lo que visten las celebrities, los últimos desfiles y este tipo de cosas? Para nada.
Hace unas semanas estaba con el corazón destrozado, ¿cómo se supera algo así? Eso me llevó a pensar en romper mi relación de 8 años, pero llevo saliendo con el mismo chico desde los 14, ¿cómo se rompe con alguien? ¿Qué se supone que debo decir? Y luego, encontrar el amor verdadero en este mundo de locos en el que vivimos. La adolescencia fue un caos emocional constante, pero se suponía que eso era sólo una fase no un estilo de vida!
Espero que os guste la nueva Lula Darling y el nuevo diseño del blog.

So that's what happens when you take pictures while singing We Can't Stop.

It's the feeling that you get when the afternoon is set

I'm finishing my classes in two weeks and next month I'll have to do my finals, so I've been really busy lately. I have so many projects that I have to give in really soon, so I didn't have much time. Since I've been out for a while, let me tell you what I have been up to.

We swam for the first time this year. It was a very cloudy day and the water was frozen! I can't believe how my friends got me to do it! // We also went to a lovely spot in Valldemossa to watch the sunset.
It rained for a few days, so I stayed at home, read a book and relaxed.
We went to a cocktail class! // Also, a few friends and I joined the campus gym.
It's amazing how much Blossom has changed since she was born 7 months ago! // I got the book 'A California Childhood' by James Franco.
A friend of mine bought two baby parrots. Meet Coco and Kiwi.
I started furnishing my home office! I'm really excited and I'll show it to you once it's ready! // Went for a walk to Jardins de Tramuntana, a garden design shop.


I also can't wait to see The Great Gatsby. Have a nice day!

Nothing seems to matter


A few weeks ago, I went to Amsterdam with a few friends. I remember the whole thing like some kind of dream. We were only there for three days, so we just walked a lot and saw so many places that I don't think I could put them all in order. Though the weather was kind of crappy, we had so much fun and the whole trip was some kind of laughter therapy to all of us, so we can't wait to be back!

Hace unas semanas, me fui a Amsterdam con unos amigos. La verdad es que lo recuerdo todo como si se tratara de un sueño. Sólo estuvimos allí tres días, así que andamos muchísimo para ver tantas cosas que sería incapaz de ponerlas todas en orden. Aunque el tiempo no acompañaba mucho, nos lo pasamos genial y el viaje fue como una risoterapia para todos, tanto que nos morimos de ganas de volver!


My advice? Every little chance you have to go anywhere, wherever it is. Take it. You will never regret travelling and visiting as many places as you can.

Mi consejo? Cada oportunidad que tengas, por pequeña que sea, de ir cualquier parte, aprovéchala. Nunca te arrepentirás de haber viajado y visitado tantos sitios como puedas.

Back to basics


Hey guys! Some of you may know I'm studying at a Hotel Management school. As you can imagine, they have quite strict rules (like wearing a crappy uniform). One of them, is that your nails must always be really clean, some teachers don't even approve of nail polish. I'm definitely not the perfect student that always wears the uniform or things like that, but it's nice to take special care of your nails once in a while. So this post ain't going to be about fancy nail art, instead I'll show you the products I use to have healthy and well-cared nails.

Hola! Como algunos ya sabéis, estudio en una escuela de Dirección Hotelera. Como podéis imaginar, tienen algunas reglas bastante estrictas (como llevar un uniforme horrible). Una de ellas, es que las uñas siempre tienen que estar impecables, y algunos profesores ni siquiera quieren que lleves pintauñas.  No es que yo sea una alumna ejemplar, pero no está mal de vez en cuando cuidarse bien las uñas. Así que este post no va a ir de uñas de colorines con dibujitos, si no que os enseñaré los productos que uso para tener las unas sanas y bien cuidadas.

Am I the only one excited?

Hey! I arrived yesterday from Amsterdam. I had an amazing time! So, so much fun. And wow, I come back home and what do I see? The Hunger Games: Catching Fire trailer. OMG, I've been craving for summer but now I can't wait for November to come!

Hola! Llegué ayer de Amsterdam. Me lo pasé genial! Ha sido un viaje muy, muy divertido. Y bueno, llego a casa y qué me encuentro? El trailer de Los Juegos del Hambre: En Llamas. Me moría de ganas de que fuera ya verano, pero ahora no puedo esperar a que llegue noviembre!
