Juguetes de la infancia

by Be-Blogger España on: Octubre 21st, 2011

Hace poco, tuve en mis manos un libro que repasaba los juguetes de mi infancia. Se llama Toyland made in Spain y es una obra de Guillem Medina y Nuria Simon.

Al hojearlo, di con algunos de mis juguetes favoritos de cuando era niña como los Pin y Pon. ¡Qué bien lo pasaba jugando con estos muñequitos de plástico con el mayor armario de pvc de la historia!

Pero lo mejor del libro fue recuperar viejos recuerdos, juegos que había olvidado, tesoros que habían quedado enterrados en la memoria con el paso de los años. Como este juego:

¡Cómo pude olvidarlo con las horas que pasé jugando con él! Antes de los videojuegos y de las consolas, este circuito cerrado e imantado era lo más parecido que teníamos entonces a las sagas como Gran Turismo o Need for Speed. No sé por qué nos apegamos al pasado pensando que lo que teníamos antes era mejor que lo de ahora. Desde luego, todas estas generaciones que crecen con consolas como la Wii o la XBox tienen mil opciones para pasarlo en grande, aunque reconozco que yo con mi Auto Cross, su llave y sus marchas, era de lo más feliz y la experiencia me parecía tanto o más realista que cuando ahora cojo un mando para hacer una carrera por las calles de San Francisco.

 Llena el verano de color con unas pulseras brasileñas hechas por ti

by Be-Blogger España on: Agosto 1st, 2011

Las pulseras brasileñas son un clásico del verano porque pueden mojarse sin problemas y dan un toque de color a tus looks. Suelen encontrarse en mercadillos y puestos hippies por cuatro duros, pero lo cierto es que no cuesta nada hacérselas en casa. Basta con comprar unos cuantos hilos de colorines para bordado y en una horita puedes tener una nueva pulserita. Lo bueno es que puedes dedicarte a ello mientras tomas el sol en la playa o la piscina. De pequeña, me pasaba horas y horas haciendo pulseritas que regalaba a mis amigos y familia porque al final ya no me quedaba sitio en el brazo para llevarlas todas.

Este libro publicado por la firma de mercería DMC era mi bíblia de las pulseritas brasileñas con varios modelos diferentes explicados paso a paso que yo varié en mil colores posibles. Pero hoy en día con internet, basta con buscar en youtube para que salgan miles de vídeos explicando cómo hacer pulseritas. Aquí tenéis la más básica:

Si no sois muy mañosos, he encontrado este otro tutorial para los más patosos con un resultado final de lo más interesante. La verdad es que no conocía este método y estoy deseando probarlo: ¡este verano pienso volver a llevar cientos de pulseritas de colorines!

¿Alguien más se anima?

 Beach boys time!

by Be-Blogger España on: Junio 19th, 2011

Estamos en pleno mes de junio. Las vacaciones cada día están más cerca y el calor estival empieza a notarse. ¿Qué pensáis hacer este verano? Yo todavía tengo que pensar en mi plan, así que toda idea es bienvenida.

Mientras decido lo que voy a hacer durante mis días de descanso, ya me he puesto el chip veraniego y me despierto cada mañana con la música de los Beach Boys a tope. No sé por qué pero cada año, por estas fechas, me apetece escuchar a los Beach boys y así me siento ya de vacaciones. Aunque es peligroso porque se te quitan las ganas de trabajar y sólo piensas en el sol y en la playa.

¿Os pasa esto también a vosotros con algún grupo que relacionéis con el verano o las vacaciones? ¡Seguro que sí!

 Un picnic para el fin de semana

by Be-Blogger España on: Mayo 13th, 2011

¿Tenéis plan para este fin de semana? ¡Yo me voy a París! Qué ganas tengo de hacer esta pequeña escapadita. Os contaré mi aventura a la vuelta y si tenéis alguna recomendación para mí (restaurantes, exposiciones…), ahora es el momento.

Yo tengo una para los que no salís de la ciudad este finde porque quedarse en casa no tiene por qué ser malo: ¡aprovechad el buen tiempo para hacer un picnic en un parque!

En Madrid, tenemos el bonito parque del Retiro con mil rincones diferentes para sentarse a disfrutar de la naturaleza mientras se toma algo en pareja o con amigos. ¿Y qué se necesita para un picnic? Pues, ante todo, un outfit:

Se nota que tengo mi viajecito a París metido en la cabeza, ¿verdad? He escogido esta camiseta que podéis combinar con unos cómodos y frescos shorts vaqueros y, para pasear por el césped, unas sandalias de tiras; todo el conjunto es de Benetton. ¿Qué os parece?

En cuanto a la cesta, en Picnicfun tenéis una amplia oferta donde escoger y encontrar la que más se adapte a vuestros gustos y necesidades. ¿Y para llenarla? Pues con un buen vinito, un poco de pan y algo de embutido tenéis más que suficiente. Por supuesto no puede faltar una tortilla española.

¿Queréis saber cómo se hace?

 ¡Bienvenidos al blog de Benetton en español!

by Be-Blogger España on: Mayo 8th, 2011

¡Hola!
Me llamo Ariadna y soy la responsable del blog Fashionisima.es. Desde ahora, también estaré escribiendo el blog español del proyecto United blogs of Benetton y he pensado que, antes de empezar, estaría bien presentarme un poco…

Esta soy yo hace unos meses en la gala de los Prix Marie Claire y es que, como muchos bloggers, compagino mi pasión por internet con un empleo para pagar el alquiler y tengo la suerte de que mi sustento y mi afición se dan de la mano: trabajo en una revista de moda con lo que estoy todo el día pensando en “trapitos”, tendencias, celebrities e iconos fashion. En este blog intentaré abordar sujetos más variados, aunque no dudéis que la moda tendrá un puesto central. Espero que disfrutéis con la lectura y que no dejéis de dejar vuestras dudas o impresiones en los comentarios. ¡Hasta mañana!

 Rock In Rio Madrid 2010, the summer festival

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 22nd, 2010

It’s one of the best music festivals around the world. This year the best stars from the music world attended the festival. It is Rock In Rio Madrid, and there have been Rihanna, Bon Jovi, Miley Cirus, David Bisbal, Shakira, Amy McDonald and much more. The highest rock journey happened on the closing of the festival with such rock legends as Metallica, Motorhead and Sober.

Rock in Rio is based at Arganda del Rey, in the outskirts of Madrid, a big enclosure in middle of the fields, trying not to annoy anybody. Up to there, arrive hundreds of buses loaded of young people. Boys and girls just wanting to enjoy the music and see their best artists live.

The festival has converted this year into a competition between singers and artists, in which the winners will be those who get the audience more excited. Rihanna and Shakira appeared in front of more than 85.000 people in their sexiest version, loaded of sensuality, and dressed with gorgeous models. And Miley Cyrus wasn’t so far behind…

During these days more than 30 millions people have been at the festival, and like every year, famous faces have been there mixed with a lot of unknown faces, but all of them with really curious street styles. The star look was Jeans and T shirt, but some girls just want to bring up people attention with uncomfortable models for this event.

Mini dresses, boilersuits with flower prints or jeans combines with navy shirts are setting the trends this year at the concerts. As top complements, we have boats, romans slippers, and high heels and XXL size handbags too. Every style is valid.

I wanna be there again next year, are you coming with me?

 Let’s go to the park!

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junio 11th, 2010

University classes are ending right now and I’m going to the park to enjoy a well deserved rest, after an exhausting year between tests and several jobs. In Madrid we’re lucky to have a gorgeous park, the Parque del Retiro, set on the city center, in one of the noble parts of Madrid.

The Retiro is one of the favourites places of my friends group. We go there every week on summer. But, we cannot go any way… We take care of us to look beautiful in any occasion. These are my favourite looks, the ones I recommend you to go to the park:

I love stripes for this summer. I see them everywhere and I’ve made some acquisitions for my wardrobe. Even it seems like a sailor’s wardrobe more than a young university spanish girl. I feel very well with them, and if it’s possible my choice is navy blue and white like a combination.

To play with a top or a blouse I choose a high ending shorts to show my legs and going comfortable to deal with the hot climate. Also I pick up my cardigan but is it’s cold later.

The stripes rules this summer. To look beautiful at the park a lot of my friends combine really good the stripes with other living colours to highlight more. They like to be seen but… going so wonderful and beautiful like them, who doesn’t like to be seen?

French lolita’s style is one of our favourites. Red and navy blue or black. Two colours which join very well and only need a high white shoes and a manoletina shoes to look very beautiful.

But not everything could be stripes because we could get bored always wearing the same thing. For this reason we decided choosing a smooth top, like this good looking kind blue, that after we can combine with skirts and black shorts. And to look divine, a leather stripes slippers have to be in our look.

Although, when we’re going to the Parque del Retiro or similars, we like practising sports, as riding bike o skating. For this occasions we also choose a very careful look because we must go and look smart.

 University Looks

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Mayo 30th, 2010

University is the place where I spent more hours by day. I go in early in the morning, and I go out in the afternoon. I go by night and I go out also by night.

Although it isn’t my favourite place (I prefer shopping malls a thousand times!) I try to look always wonderful, and choose the best looks making every day a different day. I can have one style or another, so I can change without confining me to a particular thing.

I love dressing smart meanwhile I try to keep a retro-air in my looks. I like so much choosing a beautiful blazer, khaki or beige coloured, and mix it with a full black look. The result is always very visual.

And we must have the padded handbag with its chain, the bowler, or a highlighting tacks slippers.


This Spring-Summer 2010 season the fashion pattern will be the flowers, and we can retrieve 60′ fashion style and psychodelic designs. I like so much the stripes skirts with distinguishing colors on a black background.

Then, we can combine it with a summer top, with ship neckline, leaving the shoulders undercovered, and as a final detail, a necklace for keeping the vintage touch.


Another style I see in every shop I go is navy style, called Old navy too, or stripped style. It is one of my favourites. They look really good. But we have to be aware that the clothes show a little bit more our weight, because of the stripes breadthwise. But If we know how to choose the correct dress, it won’t be a problem…

My favourite colours for this look are: navy blue and white or black and white. Winning basics.


For this troublesome rainy days, I don’t forget my lovely trench I bought in at a second-hand market in London. It has a lot memories for me, I see it and it makes me happy. And it’s very coloured and looks very well dressed, because of the white points which it’s designed. If it combines good… maybe you can create something unique.

With a look like this we can’t pass unseen. It is the perfect style if we want our next friend, for who we feel more than a friendship, looks us a little more.


For these days in which we have to look beautiful but we want to dress more polite, I prefer to bet on a printed mini-dress and combine it with a leggings and above all… a black leather jacket. And, I never can go out from home without my miitary boots!

How are your university looks? Tell me your ideas!

 Let’s come to Sonar!

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Mayo 13th, 2010

I was reading Jackie Dixon’s post about Lorenzo, a.k.a Plastic is Fantastic, and I cannot agree more with her vision: this boy is pure energy, vitality, positivity and rhythm… I guess, all this sparkle has something to do with his youngness, but I hope he never loses his tireless charm.

All about him makes me think about the next big festival coming to Barcelona next June 17th, 18th and 19th: the Sonar festival. If you love electronic music and avant-garde sounds, this is the place to be. Not only because of The Chemical Brothers, LCD Soundsystem, Dizzie Rascal and more than 100 artists coming this year… mostly because the stage, at least by day, is an emblematic and modern corner of a city plenty of contrasts.

At the last festival edition, more than 75.000 people enjoyed the artistic programme which combines electronic headliners with hundreds of emerging artists and DJ’s representing the most updated music and new media trends. Sonar is the meeting point for a worldwide audience looking for the newest, as well as the professionals, looking for the right environment for business opportunities and networking. But the Sonar festival is also an enlightening visual experience which offers a huge variety of some of the best examples of digital art creation. Let’s say it works as an organization concerned with the cutting edge art, music and technology.

And we can’t forget fashion. Because, as I said, this is a place not only to be, although it’s to be seen. Personally, I’m working on it and I’m actually thinking about my bunch of outfits yet. I will dress denim shorts, that’s for sure.


And because I’m going to be standing during all day and night… flat shoes appear to be the best foot solution, don’t they?

This is the perfect time for not being scared of mixed and matched bracelets, necklaces and rings. The right time to build up an outstanding and unique style. Bring with you all the stuff you can pick up, handle, and wear it at the same time. There’s no place for discretion here, even if it’s dreadfully hot and you wish to wear only a bikini and a pair of flip flops…

Don’t you really love pieces like this? I absolutely felt in love with this hip hop star earrings in the Benetton photoshoot back in New York… and I want them all!!

Festivals like Sonar are also the place to try unbelieveable things like this fluorescent faux nails… I didn’t photograph my own hands with them on, they could become a dangerous weapon while you’re dancing or jumping… also, they could make impossible holding the glass correctly while you’re drinking, but I find them cool and super-disco-funk! Don’t you think?

 The perfect Ibiza beach style

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Mayo 11th, 2010

It’s summer time and it is the moment to pack my suitcase to go holidaysMy destination couldn’t be but Ibiza: the island which never sleeps. There you have plans for a wide range of likes and moments: beach, parties or just enjoy peacefulness in any of its hidden coves. And that’s the reason why stylism is essential.

The fact is… packing the bag for going to Ibiza is not an easy matter. At every time of the day you have to wear a different model, so I look at my wardrobe and I choose the most striking colours for every hour, and when I’ll get tanned, without any doubt, white is the universal tone. For swimwear, I choose romantic bikinis with flower prints, one of the prints of this summer, spots, with geometrical shapes in purple and smoothy tones in red, fuchsia and white, with an 80′s look, and details of ties and plastic flowers. And, of course, I cannot forget two triquinis to wear at the boat, a very sophisticated swimwear.

Jeans shorts and mini skirts are the typical summer garment which are very comfortable for any moment of the day. But when you’re at the beach, in these wonderful Ibiza’s coves, the best option is shining with a matching combined with the bikini, or in the same tone, the best option to feel myself lightly and fashionable. And we can add something to this look: a straw hat, cowboy style, with a XXL horn rimmed glasses. A perfect look to wear while I’m taking a walk along the seashore.

The evening is another world. After a beach journey, nothing better but taking a shake or a cocktail in a beautiful terrace or in one of the multiple coffee shops of Ibiza, watching the sunset at Café del Mar. For this moment I pick a maxi dress, large, hippy and steamy, a must have of the summer.

Who hasn’t heard about the magical atmosphere of the Ibiza night? About its big discos and parties… Pacha, Space, Privilege, El Divino… a different model for every night. What’s the top garment? A dress. Black dresses, klein blue and red are my favourites, accompanied of a huge heels and a black clutch, that matches with everything.

Are you going to loose it?
