Remember last year when I started running? Well, I got addicted, and so far I’ve done three races, a 10k, a 16k, and a half marathon. So now, by logic, what comes next is the full marathon. To train for it I run about four times a week. I’m afraid I got bit by the running monster and turned into a running nerd, obsessed with improving my times and finding the best shoes.
If I could I’d try every single running shoe on the planet. When I got my first pair I had no clue what I was doing and figured any shoe is as good as the next. But by now I’ve tried three different pairs, and I can safely say I was completely wrong. Shoes does matter — a lot. The latest pair I’ve been trying is the New Balance W1080BP3. I’ve used them for different kinds of runs for the last three weeks, and so far so good.They are light, but still give me enough support when I need it , so they’ve become my favorite pairs for intervals. But they’re also comfortable in longer runs.
If you’re a neutral runner and are looking for a new pair of shoes, you should read more about the New Balance here.
For the longest time I’ve hated jeans. I could never find the perfect fit. Sometimes they were great on the waist but horrible on the thighs, and most of the time they were too short or too long, or just plain wrong. So I decided I will just wear dresses, and I did. But on my last trip I actually found two pairs of Levi´s that fit me perfectly, two pairs made in heaven. So I made peace with jeans again.
I’m telling you this so you understand why I got so excited when I received this beautiful Levi’s dress. It had two things going for it: it was Levi´s (my old-new favorite brand), and it was–ta-da!–a dress. Everything I wanted. The dress is made from a TENCEL fabric, which is soft and has an amazing denim color. And the texture is really different from anything else I’ve seen. It even comes out in the pictures.
Levi´s sent me the dress as an invite to be part of the global initiative called Around The Wold in a Levi´s® Dress. Thank you very much Levi´s!

Memories from Paris, june 2012.
A couple of weeks ago I was enjoying the beach weather of Acapulco. Luckily ELLE had invited me just like last year to cover the final of ELLE México Diseña 2012 (a contest to support young mexican designers).
This year the theme was Black Tie. And the winner, an ex-contestant of the last year edition, Edgar Lozano.
They jury was made up of Matthew Williamson, Eugenia Silva, Poppy Delevigne, and Alexander Neumann.
As part of the night schedule, Natalia López, the 2011 ELLE Mexico Diseña winner, showed her first collection (check the video here).

Finally, months after we shot at his place (we got delayed by misplaced files and accidentally deleted folders), we are ready to introduce you to the artist and all around nice guy Maauad Llorente. Maauad’s a painter and sculptor and he lives in this amazing 19th century house in the city. When he bought the house it was in a state of complete disrepair, but he brought it back to life and has done so beautifully. Now the house serves as his home as well as a guest house and studio for visiting artists from around the world.
So without further ado, we give you Maauad Llorente:
A Closet Voyeur of couples doesn´t happen too often. In fact, this is only the second one to appear in the blog. I wonder why …
But, without further ado, please meet Marina Hallebeek and Daniel Cinta, an awesome couple living in a super cool apartment together with their dogs Bubu and Jagger. Marina is a photographer, and Cinta works in Agencia Roja where he is a Creative Solutions Manager. Basically, “he does a little bit of everything”.
Oh, and like always, thank the story bureau for the gifs, and don´t forget to check out his new blog.
Mexican Fashion Week started this monday, and thanks to Koleston we got backstage access.
Here’s a video we made of the first day. Enjoy!

Finally, last thursday Mexico celebrated its very first Vogue Fashion`s Night Out. If you don`t know what I`m talking about, let me give you a quick explanation. In 2009 when the american economy was going to hell and everyone was afraid of spending money, Vogue USA, lead by Anna Wintour, had the idea to create a Fashion event to encourage people to shop again. After two years FNO has become one of the most anticipated fashion events in cities around the world. And now, finally, Mexico City has joined.
Since Mexico is so big, the Mexican Vogue team split up the event in different shopping centers. I just went to the Antara mall. Some stores were really crowded, like Zara, Marc Jacobs, and Bennetton. I guess that’s a sign that it went well.
Me I just took it easy, I snapped these pics and drank non-alcoholic drinks. The best part: the company of my fellow friends and bloggers (Ceci, Valeria, Botica, Chamberto, Juanito, and El Vikingo) The worst part: no enough discounts and not enough drinks to make me use my credit card.
