Dieting and the Rosco

One of my eherm, NY Resolution is to limit my fat intake. You know, more veggies and fruits and less sweets and anything creamy. I´m sure every girl has this on her list by time she turns 18 or at most 21. ;) So on January 6, when every bakery in Spain whipped up this delicious confection, the hubz and I bought the smallest size. Just a teeny weeny slice for me to get by the day, I hoped.


But just one bite at this tasty slice completely changed my mind.This doesn´t look like an ordinary bread and cream. The whipped cream´s so rich and creamy, you´ll gonna have your seconds and third. Ooh lala! Must be the azahar on the cream. We liked it so much that we bought another box, the biggest, the following day. Looks like my NY Resolution will have to take a backseat until next week!


As a result, I wasn´t breathing and was trying to flatten my tummy when I took this photo. Good thing it turned out well with just one click. Okay, so I took a dozen, hehe.

 top-Zara, necklace- Stradivarius, bangles- Blanco, plaid shorts- Pull&Bear

The moto jacket was perfect in hiding the middle bulge while doing some errands and accompanying the hubz sale shopping. I don´t usually sale shop on the 1st two or three days unless I really wanted something especial. Too many people around makes me feel dizzy. This time I gave in because for the 1st time in our married life, my non-fashionista husband finally asked me to go with him to buy some sweaters and a shirt. It was so funny shopping with him because he kept asking me what´s the meaning of sizes S, M, L, XL and XXL! lol! 

 moto jacket- local Spanish store, plaid tights- H&M, boots- New Yorker

Finally, look what I found on my shoes on 3-Kings Day! The night before I  kidded asked the hubz that if I leave my shoes below the window, will the Wise Men leave me a gift? He quipped:  Possibly! So I did left them, et voila!  Some extra shopping money left by the Wise Men. ;)

My first week of the year is turning great so far and I hope this goes on until next year. Isn´t this what we´re all wishing for? So how about you in there? I know you´re so busy with your sale shopping right now so see you around in the next post. ;)

I love that jacket! Wishing you luck on your getting healthy journey. I've recently cut down my fat, sugar, dairy and junk intake (and I don't eat meat either) - not to lose weight but just to be healthier - and I can't tell you how awesome it feels :) you are just full of energy all the time!

O my goodness that donut/cream thing looks AMAZING. You only had a small piece? I would have had the entire thing!!! I remember being in Italy last year at all the sales. So stressful. I love your biker jacket. It's fantastic and so stylish. I bet its a classic that'll see you through years. Mine has!
