Hello everyone!! So as you all must know Coachella weekend 1 took place this past weekend and gladly, or sadly, weekend 1 is already over. I say gladly beacuse I am pretty sure I wasn't the only one who was wishing really badly to be there instead of being locked at home doing essays for UNI, and sadly because unfortunately we'll have to wait one more week to see more people pulling off their most crazy outfit ideas. They have been three nice days, I guess. 

Today I am here to bring you some of my favourite outfits from this fisrt weekend of Coachella 2015. I know. I know Coachella is actually a music festival, but over the past years it has become more of a fashion show rather than one of the biggest music festivals in the world (or at least it is like that for those who are at home). We should probably blame Vanessa Hudgens for that matter though. Anyway, this is a fashion blog, so I won't be talking about music - at least not today.

So, coming to my point. Although Vanessa Hudgens hasn't been there this year (I know, it sucks), I still have managed to gather some really cool outfits that I absolutely loved! My favourites so far have been the Hadid's sisters (I am in love with that pair), and for what I've seen in all my social media, Gigi has been many people's favourite this year too. She looked stunning, I am not gonna lie, but I'd say Bella has pulled my favourite outfits this year so far. Hailey Baldwin has been one of my faves too (specially day 1, I loved the boots!)

Anyway, I'll stop talking now and I leave you with some of my favourites. They all have this hippie-boho vibe that characterizes the Coachella festival and that I so much adore. All the fringes and embroideries have me even more excited for summer than I already was (if that was possible!!)















None of the pictures in this post are mine.

What are your favourite looks from Coachella this year, or the previous ones? Let me know in the comments below :)

New footwear brand - STANDFOR: Talk your walk

Hi there!!

I am bringing you some really cool stuff today. As I mentioned in my last blog-post a few days ago, a new brand asked me to take part in a really exciting project, and I am here to tell you everything about it!

First things first. STANDFOR is a new footwear brand that has just released their first collection this April 2015. What is different about this brand -and what makes it really cool and special- is the fact that each collection has a meaning. So, Standfor unites fashion with meaning.

"Television. Phones. Newspapers. Internet. All of them immediately associated to communication. But have you ever thought of your shoes as a way to communicate an idea, an ideal, an initiative you support?"

The SPRING-SUMMER'15 collection is the "Smoke Less" collection and it consists on a variety of designs connected to the statement that the same name represents. This is something new and a great idea!

"Our shoes are much more than footwear. They represent action. People who walk for a reason. Who stand for an idea and believe in the power to make the world a better place."

Therefore, with their "Smoke Less" collection they are trying to encourage people to smoke less. Being aware of how much smoking affects people's lives, Standfor wants to make a change with their meaningful first collection. I love the social awareness associated with the project and I am glad I am able to participate and help Standfor stand for their cause!

"Our shoes represent belief. They communicate ideals you support. We believe issues must be spread, in order to be felt and then solved. This provides the statement with the necessary notoriety."

So far so good? Because I have more!

Another different and amazing thing about this new brand is that Standfor's first collection worldwide premiere takes part in the BLOGSPHERE. In other words, a group bloggers, including myself, have been selected to take part in their premiere IN ADVANCE. 

Coming to the point, the public premiere will take place in two weeks. However, I've been given a personal storefront link for me and my followers to check out their first "Smoke Less" collection before anyone else. You guys have access to information that no one else has. Isn't it cool? 

You can check it out here:

It is a really different footwear brand in all ways. There are three type of footwear for you to choose:  boots, ankle boots and shoes; each of them with several layout options: Fertility, Breathe, Passive, Leaf, Out, and Literal.

There are also different designs for both men and women. I am finding it hard to choose a favourite, since they all have their own meaning and I love them all!


The shoes have a patented channel that contributes to make their footwear remarkable.

"Our patented Channel symbolizes communication but it also allows the passage of air, which flows between your feet and the outsole of the shoe. It enhances the shoe ventilation and allows you to walk more lightly, with greater comfort."

The Standfor "Smoke Less" shoes also feature a strip layer.

"One of our footwear’s unique features. The Strip Layer divides the shoe in two parts.It is a revolutionary way of assembling moccasins but, most of all,
it provides flexibility and durability. They will help to maintain their original shape."

I think they are perfect for a casual every day wear, but they'd also be perfect for more fancy-dressy occasions. 


And last, but not least, let's talk about the materials used! In Standfor they only use high quality materials. The main component of their shoe is PREMIUM MICROFIBER. Therefore, they offer quality expectations, and they assure you that no animals have been harmed in order to make their footwear.

Everything about these shoes sounds perfect, or is it just me?

MOREOVER, Standfor believes in a collaborative way of working. They want people to participate; that is why they have created Standfor's Developer's Ground, an online platform for the development of their brand. If you want to help and give out ideas that portrait social issues to help raise social awareness this is your place.

Here are the important links you need to know:

Standfor's website (currently on teaser mode) -
Standfor's developer's ground -

Make sure to check out the "Smoke Less" collection and let me know what you think about Standfor and their initiative. With these shoes you'll be helping spread a message. Health is important and with these footwear we can all contribute to the cause with a pair of Standfors!! Also, if you want, tell me which is your favourite design! I'd love to know :)

STANDFOR: Talk your walk

Hoy os traigo algo muy interesante que os va a gustar. Como ya dije en mi último post de hace unos días, una nueva marca contactó conmigo para formar parte en un nuevo proyecto y este post es para informaros sobre todo lo relacionado con ello.

STANDFOR es una nueva marca de zapatos que acaba de lanzar su primera colección este Abril de 2015. Lo que me llamó la atención sobre esta nueva marca es que cada colección va unida a un significado que trata un tema importante de nuestra sociedad. 

"Televisión. Teléfonos. Periódicos. Internet. Todos los anteriores se asocian a la comunicación, pero ¿has pensado alguna vez en tus zapatos como un medio para transmitir una idea, un ideal o una iniciativa que apoyas?"

La nueva y primera colección de PRIMAVERA-VERANO’15 se llama “Smoke Less”-“Fumar menos”. La colección consta de diferentes diseños, cada uno de ellos conectado al tema que el mismo nombre representa.

"Nuestros zapatos son mucho más que zapatos. Representan acción, a gente que camina por un motivo, que apoyan una idea y creen en el poder para hacer del mundo un lugar mejor."

Por lo tanto, con su colección “Smoke Less” Standfor quiere alentar a la gente para que fume menos. Son conscientes de lo mucho que fumar afecta nuestras vidas y es por eso que quieren contribuir y ayudar con su significativa primera colección. A mí personalmente me encanta la iniciativa y espero poder ayudarles con su causa.

"Nuestros zapatos representan una creencia. Comunican los ideales que apoyan. Nosotros creemos que los problemas deben ser comunicados, con la finalidad de conocerlos y solucionarlos. Esto proporciona la idea con la notoriedad necesaria."

Pero esto no es todo. ¡Aún tengo más!

Otra cosa diferente -y muy chula- de esta nueva marca es que el lanzamiento de la primera colección de Standfor a escala mundial tiene lugar en la BLOG-ESFERA. En otras palabras, un grupo de blogueras hemos sido seleccionadas para participar en su lanzamiento POR ADELANTADO.

Yendo a lo importante. El lanzamiento al público en su página oficial tendrá lugar dentro de dos semanas, pero me han concedido un link personal para que tanto mis seguidores como yo podamos ver la colección “Smoke Less” antes que nadie. Es decir, tenéis información que nadie más tiene. ¿A qué es genial?

Podéis echarle un vistazo aquí:

Standfor es una marca diferente en todos los sentidos. Hay tres tipos de zapatos para elegir: botas, botines y los clásicos zapatos; y todos están disponibles en diferentes diseños: Fertilidad, Respirar, Pasivo, Hoja, Fuera y Literal. 

Hay diseños tanto para hombre como para mujer. A mí me está costando elegir mi favorito, ya que todos tienen su propio significado y ¡me encantan todos y cada uno de ellos!


Los zapatos tienen un canal que hace de estos zapatos un calzado notable y singular.

"Nuestro canal patentado simboliza comuincación, pero también hace posible que fluya el aire, que circula entre tus pies y la suela del zapato. Esto realza la ventilación de los zapatos y te permite caminar más ligero, con más comodidad."

El zapato "Smoke Less" de Standfor también tiene una capa de tira. La strip layer, que presenta diferentes colores a elegir.

"Es una de las características únicas de nuestros zapatos. La strip layer divide el zapato en dos partes. Es una manera revolucionaria de montar los mocasines, pero, más que nada, proporciona flexibilidad y durabilidad. Ayudará a mantener su forma original."

Standfor nos presenta un diseño y una imagen muy interesante, perfectos para llevar cada día de forma casual, pero también perfectos para ocasiones más de vestir.


Y por último, pero no menos importante, voy a hablaros de los materiales. En Standfor solo utilizan materiales de alta calidad. El componente principal de sus zapatos es la MICROFIBRA DE ALTA CALIDAD. Por lo tanto, proporcionan las expectiativas de calidad, y aseguran que ningún animal ha sido dañado en la creación de sus zapatos.

¿Me pasa solo a mí o todo sobre estos zapatos suena perfecto?

ADEMÁS, en Standfor creen en el trabajo en equipo. Quieren que la gente participe y forme parte de su iniciativa y por eso han creado la Standfor’s Developer’s Ground, una plataforma online para elaborar y desarrollar su marca y sus nuevos diseños unidos a nuevos significados. Si quieres ayudar y dar nuevas ideas que representen alguna cuestión social que se deba promover este es tu sitio.

Estos son los links importantes:

Web de Standfor (aún en modo de prueba) -
Standfor's developer's ground

Echadle un vistazo a la colección “Smoke Less” y contadme qué pensáis sobre esta nueva iniciativa. ¡Me encantaría saber cuál es vuestro diseño favorito! Además, con estos zapatos podéis ayudar a transmitir su mensaje. ¡La salud es muy importante y todos podemos contribuir a la causa con un par de Standfors

Con amor,
Cristina Ayats x

I am back. For good.

I am aware that I kind of left this blog a bit abandoned (again) and I feel so sorry about it. However, I am back and for good this time. 

I received an e-mail of a new brand a few days ago. They contacted me because they wanted me to take part in a really cool project, which I will let you know about soon, and it was then when I realised that I miss this. I miss blogging - a lot. So I am back, and I hope to stay.

I've also stumbled across a really interesting blog post today about ideas for great blog posts (you can check it out here) and well, here I am: I've got Ed Sheeran's 'X' playing (Ed's always good inspiration) and hopefully something good will turn out from this short post I am typing. It's just a little 'announcement' but I can gladly say that I've got some really nice ideas in mind to blog about in the near future and I am also hoping to find my voice here soon. 

It will be hard, it will take time, but I am more than ready!

As some of you may already know there's a tag called the Sisterhood of the world Blogger Award and last week I was nominated by two of my favourite bloggers out there (and also some great friends of mine) Mire and Caro (link in their names). Sooo, thaaank you so much for nominating me girls. You should all definitely check out their blog, you won't regret it! :)

The questions they set are:

1. What is your all time favourite beauty product?

2. If you were to shop at only one store for the rest of your life, where would it be and why?
ZARA, without a doubt! I always find everything I want there and the prices (at least here in Spain) aren't too high. I don't know, I just love everything in there! I am obsessed.

3. What is your favourite way to style your hair?
I have natural curly hair, but I use a special shampoo so it stays more wavy and I normally straighten the bangs that fall to my face a bit.. so I'd say wavy with volume, I guess. Here's a picture:

4. A new product you're loving recently? (it can be anything!)
The Maybelline Baby Lips - Peach Kiss is the one I love the most! They are not new, but I've been loving them since I first bought one about year ago. They are good as lipbalms and they also have different tones that go with everything!

Cotton pads with cleansing water (I cannot remember the brand right now)

I can't believe autumn's almost over and I haven't found the time to write a post about my favourite season of the year!! I am definitely a mess. Yes, I am aware that I say that in every post, but it is indeed true. I've been a busy-bee lately. I've had lots of UNI work but I've been also going out and getting to know some cool places, which I will hopefully write about soon if I get to go back (I am sure I will).

The thing is, as I have mentioned in the beginning of the post, autumn is my favourite season and it has always been. I love the colours, the arrival of the cold and especially the fact that extra-hot coffee starts to make sense again! Therefore, I came up with the idea (a bit late, oopsies. Forgive me for that) of coming back with an autumn favourites post.

I've tried to put together some of my favourite items that have had a lot of wear out during the season.

1. Favourite pieces of clothing

1.1 My mum's beige knitted sweater

I am obsessed with knitted sweaters, even though I don't own much, and this one is my favourite at the moment. It is my mum's and I only get to have it for a few weeks, since I have to give it back to her when I go home. She's had it since forever and I have always loved it. It is a bit big for my figure, but I love the way it looses and how "baggy" it looks. The colours go with the season and it is super comfy too!! I might keep it until winter, till' I start bringing all of my black clothes out of the wardrobe. Sorry mum.

1.2. The Topshop's JAMIE jeans

I already wrote a post abut these and I am here to say that I am still obsessed with them! I've been wearing a lot of black skinny jeans these days, since they go with the weather, but I am giving the JAMIE's a lot of wear out this season, because I'm not sure if my knees will be able to stand the cold when winter pops up!!

1.3. My brown and golden shiny scarf

I got this scarf a year ago in the parades that are held in my town by the end of October. I am a sucker for scarfs, they are probably my favourite piece of clothing when it's cold. Whenever the cold sneaks in, I wear a scarf around my neck EVERY DAY. I'd have tons, all of different colours. However, this one has to be my favourite for the season because of the colours, that match with the season's, and that also go with everything. And, doesn't it look perfect with my mum's sweater?

1.4. MANGO leather jacket

Did you think I wouldn't introduce anything black? You thought wrong. This jacket has to be my favourite item of the whole post. I've had it for a month and it was a complete bargain!! I wasn't planning on buying a leather jacket anytime soon but then this one showed up and I couldn't not buy it! It is from MANGO's last year's winter season (I think) and it costed around 100€, but I found it in a MANGO outlet for 30€. Told you, A BARGAIN. I've worn it every day since I got it and I still like it as much as the first day. It looks so good with everything! You can go from an elegant look to a tougher one, and always look amazing. I had never had a leather jacket before (I know.. how haven't I!!?) and now I am completely in love with them. Definitely a must for the season.

1.5. Zara's ankle boots

I also made a post about these and, as well as it happened with my JAMIE jeans, they have had a lot of wear out for the last month. They are not the most warm shoes I've have had, but some of the most good-looking (and cheaper!!) 

2. Favourite beauty products

Actually, I should have called this section "favourite lipsticks". The ones in the picture above are both two of my favourite colours for the lips, mostly for the season (and winter too). They are both from l'Oréal.

This first one isn't actually a lipstick bar, it's a kind of gloss. I kind of stole it from one of my best friends (I am giving it back to you whenever I get to see ya!! I swear). Ever since she got it in one of our trips to London I loved it. I definitely should have bought it too. I don't like lip gloss that much, but since I discovered this one and the baby lips, I apply them almost every day! I specially love the reddish colour this one has; it is so intense and beautiful, and it lasts for a long time. So if you ever thought of buying it but you haven't yet, I totally recommend it! And it is the perfect colour for Christmas, don't you think?

The second one is my favourite without a doubt! I wear dark colours on the lips for night out's in summer but in autumn they just seem perfect for every day! I love the colour this one has. I fell in love with it since I bought it as a present for one of my best friends, a week later I ended up buying it for myself. It doesn't last on for as much as I'd like, but you can always have it in your bag and reapply it anytime. I totally recommend it if you're looking for a dark wine colour for the lips and you don't want to waste a huge amount of money (I think its price didn't surpass 10€).

3. (Hot) Starbucks White Mocca

You were surely expecting something like the Pumpkin Spice Latte (which would be the normal thing to write down since it's a special of the season), but I can't help it and always prefer my beloved White Mocca. We've had the Pumpkin Spice Latte in Spain for the first time ever this autumn and I couldn't not try it. I liked it, but it isn't on my favourite's list. I cannot wait to try the Christmas specials though!  As I mentioned before, one of the things I like the most about autumn is the arrival of the cold, and the fact that you get to drink hot coffee again to keep yourself warm (and your hands!! very important) from the cold. Coffee tastes way better when it's hot and the weather's really cold.. or is it just me? 

This is all I have!! Hopefully you've enjoyed it. Make sure to follow my other social media.

Which are some of your favourite autumn things?? Leave a comment below and let me know! :)

Dearly, Cristina xx
