Ramblings

IMG_4281

Sometimes I cannot help but wonder what the point of me having a blog is. There are certainly thousands of blogs out there, and definitely mine is not different from others. My blog came at first as a way of sharing my personal style and a few of the things that I enjoy most in life, such as fashion, obviously, but also FOOD, art, trips, and my beautiful city, aka, Barcelona.

But though fashion is for sure a passion of mine, I would certainly not dedicate my life to it, and sometimes I can’t avoid to ask me why all the big fuss, and think about it in terms of superficiality and such.

I am a law student, passionate (and sometimes far beyond concerned and frustrated) by politics, international relationships and human rights, so I guess that these kind of thoughts come as no surprise to those who know me. That’s the reason why I have many times thought about closing this blog and just keep reading yours that I always find so inspiring.

By now, though, that is not going to be what I’ll do, because with this blog, too, many good things have come along. ChocandCinnamon became at times a platform to evade myself from reality, and it’s funny how sometimes it was during exams that I updated the most. It also turned into a platform that I think had the greatest influence in my style, through seeing me in pictures, taking them and reading your comments, I think I accomplished a more polished look that makes me feel more comfortable, and yes, prettier, as I do believe that fashion and style can indeed enhance every women’s beauty and empower them. We are all beautiful, after all, non?

Through the blog I’ve also had the chance to meet inspiring people, like Kim, who I’ve recommended you so many times (seriously, check her blog, and I enthusiastically recommend you to check her old one, La Couturier, too), and whose interests, through facebook conversations I discovered go far beyond fashion, as mine.

Well, I guess that’s enough rambling for the day, so I’ll just leave with bits and bats of what I have been doing lately.

Cuanto hacía que no sabia de tí!
A mi me pasa también que a veces creo que todo este mundo es superficial, y que aunque a mí me encanta la moda yo no soy tan así. Pero me gusta tener el blog porque cada persona que pasa y nos comenta haciéndonos halagos por nuestros posts o mis looks, me hacen sentir bien.
Aunque a diferencia de tí, sí que tengo la esperanza de llegar a trabajar en el mundo de la moda, aunque solo des del punto de vista de la empresa.

Como tu dices, es una vía de escape, pero además es una fuente constante de inspiración, porque conoces otros blogs que probablemente sino no hubieras conocido.

en fin, este super comentario vale todos los que no te he escrito en tanto tiempo ;)

un besito guapa!!

My dear,
I found your blog by chance, while peeking others and I decided to check it out! I’m glad I did it, because I am really delighted with yours. It's beautiful, well structured, interesting, sweet amazing [probably your own qualities right?] and it has completely got me hooked. I think we're going to get along just fine! ;)
I'd like to invite you to follow each other. I’d be very pleased.
I wish you lots of success and will surely come back often
kisses

Heey pleeaase don't you ever consider closing your blog :( I discovered it last year around this time and I always find myself checking it to see whether there are any updates (although I nver comment, I'm too shy-and lazy :) anyway i guess it's up to you, but thanks to your posts I discovered places in Barcelona that otherwise I wouldn't have found about- and that's really nice.
So hope to read more from you, on this blog, soon!

Toodles,
Teo
