roots, positano, benchbags

  Maleta en mano y haciendo algún que otro malabar por las escaleras empinadas con cierta dignidad, o eso creíamos: sentíamos ya los primeros pinchazos de nostalgia. Que no llegue el taxi por favor. Que el avión se cancele. Habían sido sólo 4 días, pero en el paraíso. Y eso vale doble o cuádruple, ¿no es así como se cuenta? Qué fácil es adaptarse a un lugar como Positano; donde la gente te acoge como si fuese tu propia casa, donde cualquier rincón que elijas para comer es un acierto, donde anocheces con salitre en la piel, bailas después de un…

just-like-a-movie- (21)

Mixed fragments connected by a common theme. Different stages of life full of stories, each one seen just like a movie with its own plot and setting; some of which you get hooked on and think they should never end, but they do.  Others that go unnoticed and you almost have trouble remembering them. There are those that leave you breathless and those that make you laugh and cry at the same time. Some of them are like a horror movie – just by hearing the soundtrack you know you’re going to get scared but you stay until the end…

gratitude (2) - BenchBags

What does the end of the day have that always brings us a mixture of weariness and reflection. There you are in the back seat of the car with your head resting on the window and music playing in the background. Your thoughts start reeling and you revisit random moments of that same day, laughing at what you felt an awkward situation which now you find funny; remembering people you haven’t seen in a long time and feeling a bit of nostalgia; making mental notes of what you have to do when you get home -but you probably won’t do.…

Autumn is here. Beautiful pics

Change of Season In this case accompanied by a bittersweet feeling. You’re still brushing the sand off your feet when you realize that you have to take down your suitcase that –without knowing how– you managed to fit with great skill in the top part of your wardrobe! And so, before you know it, you find yourself filling up that suitcase with everything that has accompanied you this summer and you haven’t even got the salt from the beach water out of your hair yet!!  It’s true that time flies when you’re having fun!!!   Cambio de estación. En este caso,…

No place like home - BenchBags post (25)

There’s no place like home.  It’s as simple as that – comfort would be the word I’d use to describe it.  A place you feel your own; your music, your belongings, your rules. It’s a part of your life reflected in the pictures that hang on your walls, in those things you buy to remember where you’ve travelled, and in the gifts received from loved ones spread throughout your house that let you relive memories and special moments. Your books, your films, long conversations over a cup of coffee. All those songs you sing in the shower, unending dinners with…

Take a breath - A personal post by BenchBags

This week’s post is a bit different.  It’s personal, reflexive and tells a story that we hope will inspire you. A brave heart, free and adventurous. Strength and energy in the way she lives but at the same time talent, value and capability. An explosive combination worthy of my total admiration and of course, so is she.  I’ve been so fortunate to grow up with her and know her so closely. She’s that type of person who with her own actions solves all of her doubts or moves to another continent to achieve her goals, without thinking about it twice.…

You should take a look - Fashion style BenchBags

To Observe. That wonderful virtue of assimilating all that happens around us; to see everything out there from our own perspective.   To Observe. And end up adapting what we see to our actions, our lifestyle and of course, to the way we dress.   Observe bright colors and feel the warmth of spring; use what we see everyday and give it another shape. Fit geometry into a dress, turn the flowers you like most into your favorite blouse, or cover your skirt with polka dots.   Observe, be inspired and observe again.  This is what life is all about,…

Discover our 17 Wonder Walls Art ideas

I recently visited a friend in Barcelona who shares a flat with three other partners. We baptized it as “The Artists Flat” because each person who lives there had to contribute in the decoration in whichever way they preferred.  It could be a painting, a drawing or any personal object.  The idea was to choose something that would remain and represent the time spent in the flat. The result of this was quite peculiar and very colorful which gives the flat a tremendous personality. The walls reflect the life stories of each of the four people living there. This really…
