ESTER PASTEL...

The second in my series (yes I can call it that now that I've managed a second one) on friends around the world. The first is here. Ester Pastel is my lovely friend from Barcelona. Her name isn't really Pastel, but then my name isn't really Petrolia either. Ester is my magical friend who I can go into a bonkers crazy creative zone with and we always perfectly understand each other. She is a fantastic illustrator, cocktail maker, pre-party youtube dance routine choreographer/costumier, cat maman and heel wearing cyclist.


I asked her to do this feature for me but she didn't have a camera to use; then I hit upon the idea of trawling her facebook pictures like a creepy stalker - et voila! As you can see, her facebook photos are thankfully not as boring or crap as those of the general populace - or I would not be posting them here. Every day I've ever seen her in the past 10 years Ester looks both amazing and 100% herself, even when she looks completely different from the day before. She is genuinely someone who expresses their inner self through their style - and on top of that she's a total sweetheart - and I miss her!
