BENCHBAGS-BLACK_FRIDAY (1)

Are you nervous too? Christmas is around the corner and just the thought of all the shops full of people makes me a bit anxious! That’s why I always try to do my Christmas shopping a little earlier. Do you remember what week this is? Yes, it’s that time of the year for… ¿Tú también estás nervioso? Ya queda menos para una fecha  tan señalada como la Navidad y si te soy sincero, me agobia pensar en las calles abarrotadas de personas buscando regalos de un sitio para otro. Es por eso que me gusta adelantar las compras navideñas. No sé si…

Hello again! Today I’m back with something we spend a lot of more time on than we like to admit:  the social networks. Personally, the one I like best and use the most is Instagram.  So, this is why I want to share with you some of my favourite Instagram accounts – those I always use to find new ideas or those that can cheer up any rainy day. ¡¡¡Hola otra semana más!!! Hoy vengo con algo en lo que invertimos más tiempo del que a muchos nos gustaría reconocer: las redes sociales. Personalmente, la que más uso y la…

Back to Work - 1

Summer is ending and that feeling of going back to work / school is creeping up on us! Don’t worry, it will only take a few days to get back into your daily routine. It’s a good idea to start getting your things in order a couple of days before your “rentree”, as the French call it. Se acaba el verano y esa sensación que nos entra al tener que volver al trabajo/estudios se empieza a apoderar de nosotros. No te preocupes que en sólo cuatro o cinco días estarás de vuelta a la rutina. Es una buena idea poner…

Summer Reading list

During my summer holidays I love to dig into a good book – one of those that makes time fly!  That feeling you get when you begin a new book, while you read it, and when you finish it, is so personal. So, I’ve set up a list of five books for summer reading which I think are very worthwhile. Cuando llega el verano, me encanta sumergirme con un buen libro que haga que el tiempo pase muy deprisa. Esa sensación al empezar, mientras lo estás leyendo y finalmente, cuando lo terminas….es una sensación única e irrepetible que sólo tú…

  Hello everybody! This time we’ve prepared a playlist of fifteen of our favorite 80s songs although our list could go on and on…..  It was really difficult choosing only fifteen.   ¡Hola de nuevo a todos! Esta semana venimos con más música… el verano está aquí y con él los festivales. Sin duda los hay para todos los gustos pero, como somos de los que piensan que los clásicos nunca mueren, os dejamos una playlist con 15 grandes temas de los ochenta para que “mováis el esqueleto”. As we mentioned in a previous post, music is extremely important in our family…

benchbags-seventies-music

Hi Everybody! We are going to be including several posts on music.  In our family, music is basic in our daily routines.  We relate to music in almost everything we do!  Our parents have passed on to us their passion for music – from rock to Frank Sinatra.  In our house a day won’t go by without hearing, “Oh, I love this song!”. Everybody listens to music, whether it be for relaxing, taking a jog or house cleaning  to the rhythm of our favorite tunes.  I don’t think I know anybody who doesn’t enjoy a good song. In general, the…
