Dress your tech: Polkadot hearts backgrounds for iPhone 4 & 5

Hey everyone!

This is my first 'dress your tech' post, and I actually hadn't ever tried to make iPhone backgrounds before starting this blog. I gave it a couple of chances this summer but I was never very satisfied with the results... until today. I do know these aren't the prettiest backgrounds ever, but I did think they looked cute enough. So... here you have!
Este es mi primer post de 'dress your tech' y, de hecho, nunca antes había intentado hacer fondos para iPhone antes de empezar este blog. Lo he intentado un par de veces este verano pero nunca me convencían mucho los resultados... hasta hoy. Sé que no son los fondos más bonitos de mundo, pero aun así me parecía que eran los suficientemente monos para compartirlos. Así que... aquí tenéis.

I made four different colors you can  choose your favorite. Just click on the color you want and it will open a new window with the background.
Los he hecho en cuatro colores distintos para que elijáis vuestro favorito. Sólo tenéis que hacer click en el color que queráis y se os abrirá una ventana con el fondo.

NYC haul

I don’t think anyone who is not from the US can travel there and come back home empty-handed. And I wasn’t going to be the exception.
No creo que nadie que no sea de Estados Unidos pueda viajar allí y volver a casa con las manos vacías. Y yo no iba a ser la excepción.

I personally don’t think I bough that much, but for those who may think I did, you should know that I’d been waiting for this trip for a pretty long time and Spain is kind of trashy and I always want things I can’t have here so I made a shopping list with the main things I wanted from the US and I bought mostly everything! Yay!
Sinceramente, no creo que haya comprado tanto, pero por si alguen piensa que sí, que sepáis que llevaba mucho tiempo esperando este viaje y que España es un poco… una caquita y siempre quiero cosas que no hay aquí. Así que me hice una lista con todas esas cosas y la verdad es que compré casi todo. Wee!

We have none of the stores I shopped at in Spain. In fact, the only thing I bough there that I could buy here are the toms but they’re literally trice their american price here so I just had to.
En España, no hay ninguna de las tiendas en las que compré. De hecho, lo único que podría haber comprado aquí son los toms, pero cuestan literalmente el doble que allí, así que… no podía evitarlo.

Lauren Conrad's books

American Eagle


Forever 21
(ok. there is one Forever 21 in Spain. But it's not in my city and it would take me like 5 or 6 hours to get there so it doesn't count)

Old Navy


Bath&body works

EOS and babylips

Yankee candles

Victoria's secret

By this time, some of you may be freaking out that there are so many stores/products that we don’t have here. But what can I say? Some are lucky, some are not.

Back from NYC

Hey everyone!

I'm back from NYC (which is obvious, if you read the post title). I've actually been back for a week but, unfortunately, I don't have wi-fi or a very good signal where I am now so I haven't used my computer a lot.
Ya he vuelto de NYC. De hecho, hace una semana que volví, pero no he ternido wi-fi ni una cobertura especialmente buena, así que no podido usar casi el ordenador.

I had such an amazing time there (which is also obvious, I mean, it's New York!). I think everyone who knows me knows that New York is my favorite city/place in the whole world - although, as someone once said "New York is not a city, it's a world" - so it just had to be amazing (if you know who said that, please let me know in the comments). Nobody can go to that city and not enjoy it.
Me lo he pasado genial allí (aunque, es obvio. Quiero decir, ¡Es Nueva York!) Creo que todas las personas que me conocen saben que Nueva York es mi ciudad/lugar favorita de todo el mundo. Aunque, como dijo alguien alguna vez, "Nueva York no es una ciudad... es un mundo" (Si alguien sabe de quién es esa frase, que me lo diga en los comentarios). Así que... tenía que ser genial. No se puede ir a Nueva York y no disfrutar.

I also wanted to share with you some of the pictures I took there...
También quería compartir algunas de las fotos que hicé allí.

You can see more photos in my flickr.

Diy donut/sock bun

I've been a fan of top knots this year (like the one in Eleanor's blog) but this donut bun stays longer so, I switched to donut buns instead.
Este año, he estado un poco obsesionada con los moños altos (como el del blog de Eleanor) pero los de donut duran muchísimo más, así que son mi nueva obsesión.

I always thought this was a very popular DIY, but I keep seeing those donuts to make hair-buns in stores which made me think that maybe not everyone knows you can actually make it yourself. And all you need is two socks!
Siempre he pensado que éste era un tutorial muy común, pero no dejo de ver los donuts para hacer estos moños en las tiendas, así que supongo que no todo el mundo sabe que lo puedes hacer en casa. ¡Y sólo necesitas dos calcetines!

Start off by cutting the end where the toes go.
Empieza por cortar la parte donde van los dedos.

Insert one sock inside of the other one and start rolling both socks at a time creating your donut.
Mete un calcetín dentro del otro y empieza a enrollar los dos a la vez.

For this hairstyle you will need:
Para el peinado necesitas:
  • Your donut (obviously)
    Tu donut (obvio)
  • Two hair elastics
    Dos coleteros
  • Some bobby pins (I usually use one. But the more, the merrier)
    Horquillas (normalmente utilizo una, pero cuantas más mejor)
Put your hair in a high ponytail.
Pass your hair through the donut hole. 
Cover the donut with your hair. 
Place the other hair elastic underneath the donut, making the hair stay covering it. 
Wrap your remaining hair around the bun and secure with bobby pins. You can also braid it before. I added a little bun wrap to make it cuter.

Hazte una coleta.
Pasa el pero por el agujero del donut.
Cubre el donut con el pelo.
Sujeta el pelo con el otro coletero para mantener el donut cubierto.
Enrolla el pelo restante alrededor del moño y sujétalo con horquillas. También puedes hacer una trenza antes de enrollarlo. Yo he añadido un coletero para moños para hacerlo más mono.

I hope you enjoyed it! Let me know in the comments if you did and thanks for reading!
