California dreaming

LEE ESTO EN ESPAƑOL
Hi everyone!
As you guys know, when I do anything that doesn't come out well, I simply try doing it again. That's something I've been saying since my very first post, that's how I am. After the awful experience I had last year with my rollerblades, today I tried skating again. But I didn't skate with an ordinary pair of roller skates... I finally got the colored skates that the whole Pinterest is craving for!! I had many doubts, but it was love at first sight and it was totally worth the risk. Today I went to Mission beach to try my new skates and I totally loved them!

Hope you guys like the pictures and my last last diy :)

DIY ALTERNATIVE
At first I thought of making a DIY, because they're not easy to find outside the US (and I normally live in Barcelona). My idea was to dye a regular pair of white skates with leather dye. It's so easy to find online, I got mine on Ebay. But in the end, as I had the chance of living in California for a few months, I bought my Moxi Strawberry skates.

The dye for shoes is not so difficult to use: just apply a few thin layers of dye with a sponge applicator, using smooth even strokes. It works well on smooth leather, patents, synthetics, canvas and satins. If you don't dare to make it, you can just take your skates to the cobbler.
Hope you guys liked the pictures. And stay tuned, I'm sure you guys are going to love this week's DIY ;)
