Remember this post from two weeks ago, where I told you I had found my ultimate favorite sneakers? Well, I still love them just as much, but these, these are slightly winning only because I feel like I am walking on clouds, and you know how I feel about things that look chic but are comfortable. These Nike Roshe Run Woven 2.0 were almost overlooked, because they really didn't stand out as much compared to the array of options Nike has had lately, but lucky I trained my husband well enough (hehe) to see things that he knows I would like and he pointed them out to me. They didn't have my size in store so I frantically (like all other things) searched for them online and they sold out in the Nike store and everywhere else I looked. I had given up on ever finding them, because I know how these things work, they always end up on ebay for double the price. Weeks later, by mere coincidence I found them on Nordstrom.com and now they are mine. Don't I look like a nurse in this look?

Today's post is all about the awesomeness that is small plates, these style of eating is best known as tapas brought to you by the way of Spain. I have two tapas restaurants in Frankfurt that I love, Lamoraga one is one of them, with it's contemporary Spanish cuisine and it's super cool decor, it makes for a great happy hour location. Most restaurants in Frankfurt don't start to fill up until around 7 or 8 in the evening, because that is when they celebrate happy hour for some reason. My friend Sandy and I went a little too early, but it was perfect because we had the place to ourselves for a few minutes to snap some photos. The plates were carefully crafted by fifteen Spanish master chefs who handed the torch to the head chef Christian Heine, and it shows because the flavors are a delight (something that is very hard to say for the food in Germany in general), as they do not use too many spices or flavors.
If you are ever in the Frankfurt area and are looking for a good spot for drinks and good food, this is a good choice.

Summer, summer you bring light and mist upon our skin, you are a temptress, so hard to run away from; Day after day we fall more in love with you, seeking your romance in places we hope we will find you.

The light was hitting the right places in this beautiful Chinese garden in downtown Frankfurt, that everything just appeared to be in a romance with summer, hence why I wrote a short little poem above. Wearing those socks made it appear even more romantic, don't you think?
