…Comes the New Year Eve party, but wait a minute, it’s a full week between the two major events, so… let’s have a party!!! Of course, the shopping sessions are top of the list, but we cannot refuse a drink between, isn’t it ? Or a night dance. I let you with the pictures I’ve made Tuesday 27 of December and I go to check the outfit for tomorrow night 🙂 Enjoy!
This was our Christmas “camp”: 3 days and 2 nights of celebration at Cris&Glo’s place. A full weekend of fun: we played cards (poker, blackjack) and Tabú, we danced merengue and all this was accompanied by delicious dishes and valuable wines and liquors. Not to mention the champagnes and cakes, the cute gifts and all the joy and entertainment that we had…
… a Merry Christmas and all the good things to gather around you! And because I don’t have photos yet – today I’ll go for the Christmas dinner and party 😀 – I used some unpublished photos (as I have plenty!!!)… and this is me in January 2010 (almost two years ago) exhibiting a collection Absolut Vodka bottle – The Rock bottle, covered in black leather and metal pins. Quite extravagant, isn’t it ?
Enjoy your holidays and keep watching me! This year isn’t ended yet!
And because the theme is “the rock metal vodka bottle”, let’s play a great song (I think I’m the only one to propose a Marilyn Manson video for a Christmas blog post, but why not ?! 😀 ):

Another party, another dance, another anniversary and cake! That’s December 19th, a special day. I love December!!! And now we prepare for Christmas and the New Year’s night… that’s though to find the best outfits for these events but, as I love shopping, it’s also great fun. For now enjoy my 19th December pictures and my “Last Night On Earth” Bershka blouse.

This recent past weekend was full of action, the Spanish-type of Saturday night. In the typical way, all start at 10 P.M. with the dinner in a nice restaurant. At midnight, we go to have some drinks in a bar. Then, around 3 A.M. it’s time to go to a disco to drink and dance until 6-7 A.M., and finally, after all that drinks and dance, we got hungry so we went to eat some warm churros with chocolate (kind of a donut, but elongated, not ring shaped) at Chocolatería San Ginés, a famous place to do it. And because my tights were adorned with countless stars, I named this post ‘The Night of Stars’. Enjoy the pictures!
But first, my outfit:
- Suede black boots
- Ardenne tights (with staaaars!)
- Mulaya leather black shorts
- Bershka top
- Silver white dots scarf
- Black with silver chains bracelet
- C&A coat
- H&M bag
- Gray knitted cap
Now really, enjoy the pictures! 🙂
First episode: Agnes Sourel (Dame du beauté) and Gabriela d’Estrées
Or the ‘Latests Courtesans’ as it is the name in English. That’s the last book I read and it was a great lecture that combined history with rumors and boudoir ‘facts’ known at the time. This book written by Isabel Rábago gives a wonderful image of the society when kings and nobles were at the top of kingdoms (not that today is different, but anyway). The book is structured on 5 chapters: the French courtesans, the Italian courtesans, the Spanish courtesans, the courtesans of Bourbons (Spanish kings), and finally, the courtesans of XX-th century. The stories of these extraordinary beautiful women is fascinating and paint an authentic view of the 15th-20th centuries society. The book starts with the description of an early French courtesan named Agnes Sourel, mistress of king Charles VII. Her beauty covered the eyes of the French king and made him her slave (which is a characteristic found in all the stories of French courtesans, by the way), made the poor people of France to pay for her luxurious life, imposed ministers and she even influenced the military actions of France (somehow like Jeanne d’Arc, but not at the same scale). Dame du beauté, as it was her nickname, gave birth to four children from her relation with the king, but she was never loved by the people of France, and she died for being poisoned. Her grave is in the court of the Cathedral of Lonchés.
The second courtesan was Gabriela d’Estrées, mistress of king Henry IV of France, the only courtesan that almost became the Queen of France. I said “almost” because even if the king gave her the coronation ring, she died before reaching at the status of a legitimate Queen. She was involved in the imposing Edict of Nantes (granted the Calvinist Protestants of France – also known as Huguenots – substantial rights in a nation still considered essentially Catholic). After this, the king, demanded to pope Clement VIII to revoke his marriage in order to get re-married with Gabriela, his brave mistress. In March of 1599 Henri gave his mistress his coronation ring, but in April, same year, she gave birth to a stillborn child and the second day she died too. The king was devastated and demanded for national funerals, worthily for a real Queen.
As I don’t intend to get you, my readers, bored, the next very interesting stories in a future post. Follow great names of the French, Italian, Spanish and English courtesans!
I know this is not what you’re used to see/read on my blog, but these stories are amazing! If you click on continue reading link, you’ll see some pictures with me and the book, wearing fabulous polka dots T.U.K. shoes. Enjoy!
Do you like my Playboy bunnies sequin applications ? I love it! And as a funny fact, I didn’t buy those tights, I found them behind a drawer in the flat I rent this year. They were in good shape, not ripped and recently washed. I think they belongs to the tenant before me, but the good fact is that she wears the same size as I do so, here I am, flashing the Playboy bunnies all over Madrid 🙂
I also like to introduce you my new ankle boots from Pimkie. Very comfortable and chic, don’t you think ?
Enjoy the pictures and don’t forget to answer the poll at the end of the photos. It’s interesting and I want to see your answers!
