Sumthin´ Short and Red

Last weekend ( yep, I always blog late, hehe) we visited a small quaint town near here called Moreda de Álava in the La Rioja-Alavesa region of the Spanish Basque Country. They´re having their first ¨Fiesta del Aceite de Oliva¨  and we got intrigued on what they had to offer. So off we went and saw and tasted quite a lot of delicious things.

My Look:
Just like what the title says, sumthin´short and red paired with gray and a light coat.

Some of the famous products that they´re selling:

Mosaic- Moreda de Álava
(clockwise from left: apple cider wine, Idiazabal cheese(made from the milk of a special variety of sheep which can only be found in the basque region), basque tarts, olive oil)

A novelty, olive oil flavored ice cream! It has a light taste, not overbearing and with just a subtle hint of olive oil in the palate. It´s refreshing actually. :)

I wore a cameo ring to match with my gray top for that matchy- matchy look. lol!

So why did I end in this ¨bald¨ vineyard? The organizers of the fair offered a short trip to where the olive trees are but since this is a wine region after all, we also ended up in-between the vineyards. The olive plantation in here isn´t vast like those in the Andalusian region but the quality of the olive oil produced is excellent.

I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos. Have a funfilled weekend, everyone!

Hi Che, I really like that one (Garnier) kasi parang di mo man ma feel sa face mo and not oily. Bibili ako pag naubos na yung nandito. Kaya lang they only have two skin tones to choose from.

Anyway, I'm really glad I saw you grow from simple fashion ngayon pwede ka ng pang magazine, no joke! I love this outfit and the bag is so cute.

Yung blog ko naging business na. dami ko dapat isusulat tonight. pero ok naman it makes me use my brain and mostly sulit naman mga products pag reviews.

I've seen similar shorts in Mango and I'm considering buying them. I want them even more when I look at you! :) But it's still cold up here so I can think a little bit longer ;).

Great outfit!
