Music: The 28th of October I'm going to the Bon Iver concert in Madrid, and, dare I say I'm dying to go? I'm so excited it should be illegal, and I'm going with one of my loveliest friends who coincidentally bought the ticket for me as my birthday present. Too wonderful. To prepare, I've been listening to them over and over and, hand in hand with the improving weather (colder, cloudier, rainier... definitely improving), it's the perfect soundtrack to my life lately. This is the song by them which I've been listening to the most. The rest are a few I've been loving, too!
And... anything sounds better with the sound of rain in the background... This is my favorite website ever: http://www.rainymood.com/
Instagram: This really just defines my life lately because I love to document my every activity with it (maybe I'm exaggerating a tiny bit), but I love it, it looks pretty, it's a way of keeping a diary (more or less,) and it's just fun to use, really. I'm @cristina_barba on it. ^_^
Films: I made a collage and posted it on Tumblr which documented my favorite films watched or re-watched over the summer, and it hasn't really changed since then. I'm actually planning on watching these all over again because they have become some of my favorite films.
The Dreamers isn't for everyone, to be perfectly honest, and it definitely helps if you know French (which I don't very well, mind you), but it's so beautifully made and it's such an unusual story... I adore it. I saw An Education pretty early on in the summer so I don't remember it as well, but it's also extremely beautiful and relatable (perhaps not in the literal sense of the plot). And Moonrise Kingdom and Brave have been the two best films I've seen in the cinema in a loooong while. I strongly recommend all of these to any of you who think you share interests with me, as they can be considered quite particular.
Vlogs: I've been REALLY into Youtube lately, since my obsession with make up increased, so, if you like these sort of things, I want to share with you my favorite Youtube channels. (These aren't just make-up, by the way, they're all a bundle of wonderful awesomeness)
