over a beer



I wrote here that most of my outfit posts take place after a coffee or before a beer, and posted the coffee portraits. There were requests for the beer installment, so here you have it! I realize posting this so soon after my rhapsodies over Glühwein makes me seem a bit of a lush, but it's just taken out of context, I promise you. ; D

In the words of others:

"Alway remember that I have taken more out of alcohol than alcohol has taken out of me." Winston Churchill
"Work is the curse of the drinking class." Oscar Wilde
"There are more old drunks than there are old doctors," Willie Nelson

More beer quotes here!


This is wine actually, a wonderful vinyard tour that I did of Vallformosa... anyway, we won't discriminate against wine!

Oh, another thing, now that we're all friendly over a beer... I've created a facebook page for the blog... now normally, being not the biggest fan of facebook, I wouldn't have done this or wouldn't have cared if anybody liked it... however, I'm trying to find a new job, perhaps doing content for blogs for companies or something related, and all the ones I see offered are very interested in the candidate being some kind of social networking guru. Sooooo.... if you do head over and like it, I'll love you forever/like you back or whatever. Same goes for twitter. There'll be little extras on the facebook page, for example, if you head there now, there's a picture of yet another awesome room from the castle!


In these last two I'm actually drinking Catalan beer in Bonn. : )

P.S. because beer is better with friends:
me and Kallie of Happy Honey and Lark, having a beer and a giggle in New York last April ... you'll have to take my word, and a certain amount of photographic evidence, that there was beer in front of us... : )

So much fun! :D I wish I liked beer, haha, sadly I don't really like any form of alcohol...tastes funny XD
And I liked your Facebook :D

Carrie said...

Facebook liked as Busy Nothings. Twitter followed as MyBusyNothings. Consider it my Christmas gift. ;-) I only recently gave in and got a FB blog page (have had a personal site for a long time) and a blog Twitter account - for similar reasons to the ones you mentioned. If I'm going to write or find an editing job, it's time I start self-promoting. I hate that part. Merry Christmas!

Or, my personal favorite beer quote,
"Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy." - Benjamin Franklin

It's so funnaaayyyy! ;D

Liking your facebook page! :) ♥

Ah, amazing! I love your embroidered dress too, so funky!

I love those "what I do other than pose around when an outfit post is created" posts!!

I started a FB page this week too and I too was a little apprehensive for a long time but I get a lot of traffic on the blog from posting on my personal page and realized a lot of people won't go on the blog if they don't see a new post come up on FB ( which is kind of sad, but hey!). So I like you now, there and everywhere else dear!

I love beer, especially microbrews and foreign varieties. Given your world-travels, I frequently dream about having a beer with you in some cool pub somewhere exotic (Barcelona; Eastern Europe; South America) while admiring your chic outfit and wiggling in mine.

The orange clothes you're wearing in the winery are gorgeous: what vibrant colors.

islabell said...

Yes on beer and facebook pages. I was hesitant too at first but it doesn't take much time.

My step dad and I made beer last year so i'm excited to see how it turns out over christmas.

Ashley said...

Alright, alright...I suppose I'll make it public and tell the world (on facebook) that I "like" you blog. But I only "like" it, I don't love it. Let's get that straight :P

Oh, and I only like it cause you have beer!

Valerie Enríquez said...

You look rather calm for drinking alcohol. I'm accustomed to the "smashed while drinking" photo, so this is refreshing! Haha x

NRIGirl said...

Of course, will like you!
Isn't that Joseph's coat in pic 2?!

dusanabotswana said...

Ah you are so so photogenic! & I quite enjoy all of those quotes. I liked your page! If you're looking to work w/ any companies who aren't using twitter I can send you a presentation I did (in Spanish) if you'd like!

The Daily Fashionista said...

Have you ever seen $40 a Day with Rachel Ray? She would always spend part of that money at a bar for every episode. My husband would always joke about how drunk she might be while taping ;) Anyways, your story reminded me of that. Some people just want a good beer every now and then!

Amber said...

You look cute in each pic. I need to take pictures when I'm on beer number 1 but I always forget until about beer number 3/4 and then the pictures just turn out awful. Not cute at all.

I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy. -Tom Waits

I rarely get a chance to post my favorite drinking quote=) I would love to travel the world someday, and I'm not ashamed to admit that much of my time would be spent trying new beer!

Looks like good times!

My Best Dress said...

Nice post! And the white dress is really beautiful!! :)

Annebeth said...

haha i love your beer stories :D I'm not a beer drinker myself although I do occasionally enjoy a fruit beer like Kriek, made with cherries. I prefer wine. And of course I'll like you on fb! I have a page too for my blog, since like last week. I'm such a social networking guru.

Kallie, Happy Honey and Lark said...

I LOVE THIS! The Oscar Wilde quote is my favorite. Also, "Beer if proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy" Ben Franklin is a priceless one. Come back to NY and get a beer with me!!
PS--crossing my fingers for your job hunt!

Belgian beer are the best ;)

Natasha said...

I've only just discovered your blog but I am already head over heels in love with it. Your dress in the second to bottom photo is amazing and everyone loves a drink now and then ;) xxx

Les Folies de Flo said...

Love all your outfits !! you look very pretty :)

yiqin; said...

i like beer too <43

Amber Rose, Laughing With Broken Eyes said...

You make me smile. In one year, I'll tweet you asking for a recommendation on beer and then I'll be able to (legally) go out and buy one. :)

le sorelle said...

These were all such great photos! I especially love the striped shirt with the green cardigan over! Most of our outfit posts are taken after breakfast, actually - so no beer involved! ;)


Emily, Ruby Slipper Journeys said...

@le sorelle: hehe, don't worry... a lot of mine are after-breakfast too! Though in Barcelona it seems that for some of the locals breakfast involves beer!

Caitlin said...

love that plaid jumper!

Monique said...

nothing like a cold beer on a hot day. i don't have fb anymore. once i'm back on or when i create a page for my blog i'll certainly show your page some love

Emily, Resplendent Tranquility said...

It's always nice to see glimpses into a blogger's life beyond the outfit shoot. And going out for coffee or a beer is always a good way to spend part of a day :)
