Catalina at Childrensalon

Two weeks ago, lovely Sorcha from Childrensalon got in touch with me to write about Catalina in Childrensalon blog, and I was so delighted!!!
I love Childrensalon, it´s the perfect shop for mini-fashionistas, you can get there everything, Anne Valerie Hash, Alberta Ferreti, Burberry, Chloé, Jean Paul Gautier, I Pinco Pallino, Rachel Riley and much more... They also supply costumes for the English Nacional Opera. Everything to Catalina will be stylish (i hate that word), it´s better cute, yes, everything in order to Catalina will be cute and beaufitul.
So, last Wednesday I posted in Childrensalon, you can see my post, here, and I am going to post every month in Childrensalon Blog. So, don´t miss it.
I leave you some Childrensalon pics.

P.S.: How was the Christmas eve dinner?

The Tree y el Belén

My sister told me yesterday how excited Catalina was when she put up the Christmas Tree and el Belén (nativity scene). Yesterday was a great day!!! Catalina went to the Museum, rode a horse and put up the Christmas Tree.
It is so charming to see how Catalina enjoys everything, she is so adorable...

Christian Louboutin and!!!

"¡¡¡Mamá, pide un paquete!!!" (Mom, order a package!!!), Catalina said to her mother when she saw this batgirl-barbie. I know "Mom, order a package" doesn´t have any sense, but sometimes my sister orders some toys or dolls, so when the courier delivers the ordered toys are "packages".
Well, it could be not very funny, however, when my sister told me that I found it hilarious.

First of December... is Christmas-time?

Photo comes from here

Catalina after la Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos, 2007 and 2008
As ModSquad would say "vintage Catalina"

I am not really sure when Christmas exactly star, are you? I had always thought that it wasn´t officially Christmas until the lights came on. Well, Oxford Street Christmas Lights were switched on for 2009 on 3rd November (a little bit soon), Madrid Christmas Lights on 27th November, so we are already at Christmas.
Well it can be very soon but I don´t mind it, I do looove the lights, the friends you see again, the presents, holidays, the turrón, the Cabalgata de los Reyes Magos (Cavalcade of Magi) and so on.

I love school uniforms and I don´t know...

...why where Catalina lives the schools are so allergic to them...

Until now Catalina doesn´t choose her clothes but in two years we are afraid she is going to ask for just pink clothes...

Our "Mini-top" in Sailor

Our MiniTop is growing a lot, but she is so cute as always, I love her in this Geraldine Saglio´s editorial for Vogue France Enfants Supplement September 2009. Catalina loves the red skirt.

Vogue Nippon and Ruben Toledo

Catalina loves these Ruben Toledo postcards, she thinks they are "chic", nowadays she´s very interested in which things are chic. Vogue Nippon is chic? Italian language is chic? and Euskera (Vascongadas language) is chic? (the last question I can just tell her that when she speaks Euskera of course it is)


I am so happy, I have always loved (well, since the firs time I saw it, a few months ago) Manhattan poster by Jim Datz (above), and Three Potato Four has notified me the poster is now available. Well it´s the first time I buy something from US, I hope my Mantattan poster arrives soon...Catalina and I have to study the map very well to travel, later, to NY

The Three Wise Men: our wish list

To Catalina

Catalina is a little nervous about what she wants to ask to the Reyes Magos. We told her she has to be quite specific, if she isn´t, it migth be The Reyes Magos didn´t know which presents she wishes.

She wants a piano, we love this Vilac cute mini piano, oh, i love it in that yellow... She wants some dolls, so those she has already got and the new ones could be very happy together. One of them is a Corolle doll, Catalina has got another but it isn´t a ballerina. And I love Naomie for her.

She doesn´t want, but her mother does, another lamp, Catalina has "only" got four in her little bedroom... We love this one

She also wants a little kitchen, and i think the Lili Cooker is the cutest one. As well a Baking kit, this one is so gorgeous.

And the last wish: going to snow for her very first time with her littles friends, so we love those absolutely fantastic chocolate dungarees by Bonpoint.

To Ana

Ana is me. Catalina always calls me Ana, never untie, it´s fair, i call her Catalina, never little niece.
Well, first of all, I wish this fab Antonio Citerio´s sofa, I don´t know which the price is but the Reyes Magos are magicians and they are three, between 3 is easier shave more money...
In the second photo you can see the "lucellino", the first time I saw this cute lamp was in a small shop at Piazz di San Lorenzo in Lucina in Roma two months ago. The shop was close to Bonpoint and I felt in love with "Lucellino". Its designer is the German Ingo Maurer, and his website is worth a visit.
In the next picture you can see three Alexander Girard Wooden Dolls, I want them, I want all of them!!!, give me time, give me time...
Finally, I want some bracelets, Botega Venetta or Marni, I love either. Don´t you think they are fab? I know I never wear that sort of stuff, but if the Three Wise Men bring me them I promise I will wear them. (via)

At the Library

I don´t know but when I was a little girl I hated libraries, they were boring, their books were hideous, you had to be in silence all the time... But nowadays the libraries are so diferent, the books are gorgeous, they are chock-a-block with cute toys, books, want to go to the library...

The Steadfast Tin Soldier by Tim Walker

Pictures come from here

I do love this much loved tale of the one-legged toy soldier who falls in love with a beautiful paper dancer!!!. My mom always read this tale to Catalina and she´s in love with the soldier.
And, of course, I love those Tim Walker´s photos.
