One of the reasons why I am always broke is because I spend all my money in food. It looks like if I was following a Master's in bars in Madrid.
But yesterday I spent my money in this beautiful thing. It is called Anorak and it is an English magazine for children, full of nice stuff and illustrations. They have a blog but they don't publish as many things as you can find in the print edition.
Christine and Justin paint things that they want to buy and then sell the paintings for the price of that thing. Then they buy it and upload a picture on their website, showing that they have achieved their purpose.
After their success, they have gone further and started a social project. This time, the money that they earn with the sale of their paintings is invested in humanitarian causes.
When I went inside this place I felt like if I was in a tale of Charles Dickens.
Living in London is a shop and tea room in Madrid. Besides being able to choose among diverse English products (such as jam, chocolate, tea, biscuits or even homemade cakes) you can enjoy a very nice cup of tea at the back of the place. I am a fan of those granny cups!
Furthermore, part of the profits goes to social projects in Africa, which makes it a better reason to stop by.
This is one of my latest discoveries. The blog of Anna Aden is full of beautiful Nordic landscapes and portraits. I love the light in each of her pictures and the way they make you feel when you look at them.
I am still trying to decide which of them is gonna be my new wallpaper. Yes, I am obsessed with Sweden this Autumn, as you can notice here.
