You must be wondering... where are last week's Sunday Shots? Well, they're... in process, in a bit of an unusual turn, I'm the one totally uninspired for them, and Gaurav actually delivered his in time. So while I'm trying to get inspired for last week's and this week shots, I'm gonna write a blog entry that belonged to last month!
I actually had to check, cause I thought I should have been written at the beginning of last month, since I met up with my friend Irene for our exchange of Reyes gifts on the first week of Jan! In most of Spain, Santa Claus is more of a late comer, and gifts have always been given on the morning of Jan 6th, which according to lore is when the Three Magi, Wise Men or Reyes Magos as we call them, presented the baby Jesus with the incense, gold & myrrh.
Well, long story short, we met up for lunch at Vip's, had quite a yummy lunch, I tried the very awesome Toblerone cheesecake and we exchanged gifts!
I got Irene addicted to Dolly bags, and she has quite a loooong list of bags she wants to get, so I usually get her one for either/both Reyes and her b-day. And this year I got her a Ruffle purse, a Sofia cosmetic bag (super roomy) and an eye-glass case, all matching!
And she got me one of the many books available about Hypatia of Alexandria (I have been wanting to read about her for quite a while) and super cute handmade felt Hello Kitty pin that I wore right away!
Hopefully I'll have more blog entries ready this week, cross your fingers for some extra motivation coming my way!
