Five Must Does in Madrid this Christmas

Decorate your home - Build your own Madrilenian nativity scene.
First go to plaza Mayor to buy figurines. The essential figurines are: Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus, cow and donkey, angel, some shepherds and the three wise men.
A tip: do not buy the caganet it is not a local figurine.
Another tip: While in plaza Mayor take advantage to have a Christmas chocolate con churros at Chocolatería San Gines.
Then go to your nearby park and pick some moss, stones, twigs, etc.
Find a good spot in your house far from pets. Do not forget to build up a river with kitchen foil and to add some lighting that will make the joy of the little ones.
Visit a museum but make sure you buy your tickets online beforehand.
Our choice :
- Clara Peeters at Museo del Prado from 25th October 2016 to 19th February 2017.
- Renoir at Thyssen Bornemisza Museum from 18th October 2016 to 22th January 2017.
- Robert Doisneau – la Belleza de lo Cotidiano at Fundación Canal from 6th October 2016to 8th January 2017.

Treat your belly and go for nice healthy food.
Our choice:
- Bump and Green
- Hermosos y Malditos
- Nubel
- La Pagoda
- Amazónico

Treat your look. Since you are not going to start a diet go for a facial at Skininc, a massage at Assari or a walk at the Retiro Park.

Have crazy amusement. Go for a show with dinner to the newly revamped Florida Retiro, depending on the day you can choose a musical show or jazz music, and after 01:30 a.m. lively disco and dancing.

And a final suggestion outside the list: stay at home, relax and watch a nice TV series with a glass of Spanish wine avoiding the masses.

Best wishes to all of you from My Little Madrid!!

Wellness for Pregnant Women

Being pregnant can sometimes be hard, specially in the summer heat. We have never mentioned pregnant women in our posts, and I thought the time had come to give them the spotlight as they deserve the best!

Smiling, Get a Perfect Smile!

Inés de la Fressange, former french model, one of the most elegant people I know, quotes in her book, “La Parisienne”, “Don’t go bankrupt buying expensive face creams, the best beauty parlor is your local dentist. An attractive smile and great teeth are the best way to forgive and forget the rest”! 
I couldn’t agree more, and last month I went for a complete teeth cleaning and invested in whitening my teeth.

SKINC- Skin Supplement Beauty Bar

On the Plaza de Santa Ana, inside the well known Hotel ME Santa Ana (Meliá Hotels) you can peek through the window a very elegant, modern, clean and polished white bar with many colourful little bottles. I was intrigued to know what it was about... and the story behind it made me even more attracted. It is the Skin Supplement Beauty Bar, a concept created by a wonderful lady named Sabrina Tan.

Paco (my favorite Hairdresser) and Alice in Wonderland Beauty Salon


Finding a good hairdresser is very difficult but once you find him fidelity is guaranteed. This is why my post today is about Paco Palacio (625 371 839), great professional and best quality price in town! It’s been now years since I trust him for my haircuts and new looks and it always ends up with my happy smile staring at the mirror when I see the result. His chat and opinions regarding gossip magazines are a plus for extra fun!

Beauty for chest and facial wrinkles

Today something different, a cool hint! tested and really working!
I recently bought this amazing product directly in Madrid from Padbeauty, got it in two days, used it right away and it does work! 
I tried both products one for chest wrinkles and one for facial wrinkles. They are both designed to reduce existing wrinkles and expression lines and prevent new ones from forming. You wear them while sleeping or hours before a party and the result is as you see in the pictures. No additives, fillers, latex or adhesives are used. Pads may be washed without losing their adhesive quality and usually last 30 days depending on usage time and skin conditions.
Always liked before and after photos

(New address) Villanueva 5 
Today I have been pampered at Rossano Ferretti's hairdressing salon by Enzo and the girls. Great start!!! The head stylist; Claudio, will improve your look while seducing you with his Italian male charm. Rossano Ferretti is an international hairdresser born in Italy with salons in Parma, Verona, Chiavari, Madrid, Venice, Vienna, Rome, Milan, Bologna, Belgrade, Miami, Mumbai, Paris and New York . Its key to the success is the creation of his own method. The haircut that falls naturally rejecting standardization. No one will notice you get out of a salon, they'll notice you look gorgeous not knowing why. I love their haircuts but also their natural dying colors. And best of all the exquisite ways they have with clientele!!!
