Bon week-end!

Apartment Therapy

While Spring is trying to beak through the Northern Hemisphere, here it seems like Fall doesn’t want to come just yet. So let’s enjoy the weekend, may be with a stroll or an al fresco meal, right?

Here are a song and a sweet little cartoon to start your weekend with a smile. xo!

Mientras en el hemisferio Norte se asoma la primavera, acá parece que el otoño no quiere llegar todavía. A disfrutar el fin de semana, tal vez con un paseo o una comida al aire libre, por qué no?

Acá les dejo una canción y un chistecito muy tierno, para empezar con una sonrisa. Besos!

Music Friday

Looking for Esperanza Spalding, I found this gem by two great composers of Argentinean folk, creators of so much goodness: Manuel J. Castilla y Gustavo Leguizamon. A pleasant surprise that makes me proud of this genre, mostly unknown abroad (perhaps overshadowed by tango) and that’s very special to me, because a grew up enjoying it. Alone with her bass, Esperanza shows us how sweet this zamba is.

Buscando a Esperanza Spalding me encontré con esta joya de dos gigantes del folklore argentino, creadores de tanto: Manuel J. Castilla y Gustavo Leguizamón. Una hermosa sorpresa que no hace más que enorgullecerme de este género tan poco conocido en el exterior (tal vez opacado por el tango) y que es tan especial para mí, porque me crié disfrutándolo. Sola con su contrabajo, Esperanza demuestra la dulzura de esta zamba:

Coachella

Last night I was dreaming of Coachella, and hanging out in Polyvore, so I thought I could put together some outfits I’d wear if I could actually go to the concerts. It was just a dream (maybe it was too late at night), because: a) I can’t fly over 10.000 kms to a music festival, and b) I can’t afford the Marc Jacobs dress, or the Tom Ford sunglasses, or the Mulberry shorts… yet… 😛
After taking a look at the program of the shows I decided that if anyone would make me choose just one day to go to Coachella, it would be Saturday. Mumford & Sons, Erykah Badu, Gogol Bordello and Bomba Estereo all playing the same day in the same stage??? Yes, please! I know it’s an eclectic mix, but that’s the way I am. I think life is too diverse and awesome to be stuck in one style of anything: music, clothes, etc. 
Enough Philosophy for today my friends, hope you have a great weekend. Below are a video from Mumford & Sons and the Polyvore sets I told you about.
Besos!
