LOOK OF THE DAY “FLASH SERIES”

July 31, 2011 in Uncategorized by Andy






Yesterday was one of those days where I just wanted to stay home to sort some things I had to finish before I was off to Copenhagen and Stockholm Fashion week and all of a sudden, as I was looking through my “Make-up” inspiration folder, I decided to relocate myself to my bathroom and try out different make-up looks, some of which I have never tried before.


As I was doing this, I figured it was too much of a waste to spend hours doing my make-up for nothing, so I decided to shoot some fun pictures wearing 3 different makeup looks paired with 3 of my favorite necklaces so this is the first set of what I am calling; “Flash series”… I was actually wearing an American apparel tube top, but I only wanted to have the focus on the necklace and the makeup, I hope you like them and stay tuned for more “Flash series”!

Necklace: COS

LOOK OF THE DAY “SHEER & LEATHER”

July 30, 2011 in Uncategorized by Andy

Hello and Welcome to the new and improved StyleScrapbook!!!



I have to say that the thought of changing the whole layout of the blog was scaring me like you cant believe, but few weeks ago I decided it was time for a change and it was only yesterday that I was finally brave enough to do it…I hope you like it!!!


This is also the first time that I am wearing my velvet Doc Martens on the blog, isn’t it? Anyway, this are one of those shoes which I promised myself to never ever wear, yet here I am wearing them, so never say never!


Have an amazing weekend lovelies and thank you so much again for the support!


Traducción:

¡Hola y bienvenid@s al nuevo StyleScrapbook!



Ya tenia meses de querer cambiarle el look al blog, pero la verdad me daba muchísimo miedo hasta que me llene de valor y por fin lo hice ayer en la tarde…¡¡¡Espero que les guste!!!


Creo que también es la primera vez que me pongo mis Doc Martens en el blog y la verdad, este tipo de zapatos era uno de los que jure nunca ponerme, pero aquí estoy, usandolas en un “look del día”, ¡así que nunca digas nunca! ;)


Que tengan un fin de semana increíble y muchísimas gracias por el apoyo.

LOOK OF THE DAY “GOLDEN SKIRT”

July 28, 2011 in Uncategorized by Andy

Wow guys, thank you so much for all the feedback regarding the banners yesterday and I think that the race is really between #1 and #2, have you voted yet?

Here is a super simple outfit wearing the gold skirt I made and what seems to be a necessary thing during this years Summer; “a sweater”.
Im still working on making the final decisions about the new layout and who knows, you might encounter a whole new StyleScrapbook tomorrow, maybe, maybe not :P

Traducción:

Muchísimas gracias por todos sus votos para el nuevo banner, se me hace que la carrera es entre el #1 y el #2, ¿Ya votaste por tu favorito? 

Los dejo con el look de ayer; La falda dorada que hice hace algunas semanas y lo que parece ser algo basico y necesario en el closet durante este verano en Holanda; “un sueter”.
Yo sigo con los últimos detalles para el cambio de look y quien sabe, igual y mañana que vengas al blog, lo encontraras con su nuevo look, tal vez, ya veremos ;)




Skirt: Made it myself / Sweater: American Apparel / Bag: Alexander Wang

NEW LOOK: 1, 2 OR 3?

July 27, 2011 in Uncategorized by Andy

So finally after tons and tons of possibilities, I managed to narrow it down to these 3 final banners. As you can see they are very similar, just few details change in the fonts…Which one is your favorite? 1, 2 or 3? Leave a comment to let me know ;)


I posted the first “layout” two days ago and I got a lot of comments, even emails asking me to keep a photo on the banner,  since a lot of you thought that the identity of the blog might get lost a bit without that.
I have to say that I would prefer it either way, I just wanted to keep it more simple without stripping it from all colors, thats why I decided to add the watercolor drop and in the end, used one of my favorite pictures from the MANGO shoot in Barcelona back in March shot by my good friend Ana Agullo.


I want StyleScrapbook’s new look to be more sleek and clean, because I believe that after almost 4 years of blogging, it needs and deserves a fresh new makeover.


I appreciate all of your comments and suggestions regarding the new layout, banner and background color and as as said before, I believe that what makes a blog special is the person that gives life to it, not the color of its background and I will keep giving my all and putting the same time, effort and love into the blog, despite all the changes.


I also wanted to thank all the people that sent me their banner ideas and designs, they were all so beautiful and the fact that you guys took your precious time to contribute to this cause and help me means the WORLD to me, THANK YOU! (I will make sure I show you all of the banners I received on my FACEBOOK page)


And last but not least, big thanks to Elvira, who’s an amazing Spanish graphic designer and gave me a whole lot of advice during this whole process, thank you Elvira!!!


So whats it gonna be? 1, 2 or 3? Cast your vote ;)


Traducción: 


Y después de un sin numero de posibilidades, por fin logre decidirme por estos 3 banners, que la verdad son muy parecidos y lo único que cambia son algunos detalles en la letra, ahora solo falta elegir el indicado… ¿Cual te gusta mas, el 1, 2 o el 3? Deja un comentario son el numero que mas te guste :)


Desde que les enseñe pruebas para el nuevo diseño del blog, me llegaron muchísimos comentarios y hasta correos electrónicos pidiendo que no quitara la foto del banner, por que se podría perder la identidad del blog.
La verdad yo lo prefiero con o sin, pero al final, decidi usar una de mis fotos favoritas tomada en la sesión de fotos de MANGO en Barcelona por mi amiga Ana Agulló el Marzo pasado.


Quiero que el nuevo look de StyleScrapbook sea algo muy fresco y diferente, ya que con los casi 4 años que llevo en esto, al blog ya le hace falta un cambio de look urgente, ¡Me lo pide a diario el pobre! ;)


De verdad les agradezco todos los comentarios y consejos para el nuevo diseño y como ya lo había dicho antes, me parece que lo que hace a un blog especial es la persona que le da vida, no su color de fondo y a pesar de el color que decida escoger al final, yo le seguiré poniendo todo mi tiempo y cariño, por que esto es mas que un simple blog para mi, es mi vida y mi sueno hecho realidad.


También les quería agradecer de todo corazón a todas las personas que se tomaron su tiempo diseñando banners para el blog, todos estaban hermosos y el hecho de que me hayan apoyado de esta manera significa muchísimo para mi, de verdad se los agradezco. (pronto voy a subir todos los diseños que me mandaron a mi pagina de FACEBOOK)


Y por ultimo, quiero agradecerle muchísimo a Elvira, una Diseñadora gráfica Española súper genial que me estuvo asesorando y dandome muchísimos consejos en todo este proceso, ¡Millones de gracias guapa!


Ahora si a votar! Cual te gusta mas? ¿El 1, el 2 o el 3?
