Fiesta Galore

So the weeklong festivities in here ended today. I didn´t go out much to celebrate the fiesta but a well celebrated one is never complete without:

Lots of colorful balloons for the kiddies and not so kiddies

Food--- another reason to ditch the diet temporarily ;)

An odd man walking on the street offering a lot of things for a little something

Lots of things for the fashionista like these hand knitted shawls

Handmade espadrilles

and color blocked leather bracelets/bangles

Spectacular entertainment---  African music at it´s best

and fabulous street art--- freshly made.

Later during dinner with friends, I wore this:

It was a cold rainy evening and so I opted to wear my go-to  jeans and a thick top and debuted my blue bowed flats which I thrifted last year.

top- Vero Moda ( 1st worn here), jeans- Zara, shoes- vintage

To cap the night, the hubz and I watched the fireworks from our bedroom window. We´re lucky that we live near the hills where they have the fireworks but quite unlucky to live far from the main part of the city where most of the fiesta activities are concentrated. Now you know why I only have a few photos to show you. hehe!

So how´s your week in there? ;)

Hugs from here,


PS: I´m off to the northwestern part of Spain for a much needed summer holiday. Will be back soon to visit your blogs and answer your e-mails. In the meantime, allow me to photograph the Rias Baixas and visit St. James of Compostela. I shall return. Promise! :)

It looks like you've always got some event on here going on whenever I check your blog! :) That must be so exciting to leave nearby happenin' places. I live in Baltimore. It's okay. We have a lot of band shows, and that's pretty much where my husband and I frequent.

I like the pattern on your blouse!
