Friday is my day: Masaoms

Now we will travel to Spain and meet Marta from She is a jeweler and gemologist who designs beautiful unique jewellery. Visit the shop!


7.45 – 8.00am

My alarm-clock sounds arround 7.30 but I can't wake up until 8.00. I need to preapre my body for the new day. I enjoy these minutes inside my bed, watching the light from the morning coming inside my room and keeping warm... I also like to play with my cats at bed, they enjoy jumping over me to make me wake up.

8.00 – 9.00am

I take a shower... hot water...mmmm.

Then I have breakfast with Oriol. I like breakfast at home but somedays we go out to take our morning coffee at our favourite bar.

9.00 – 9.45am

We live out from Barcelona, so we have to take a train to go to work. When it arrives to Barcelona I take the Underground to go to my workshop.


I'm at my workshop. Ready to start my day of work...

10.00 – 14.00pm

I like to take a cup of tea while I'm reading my mails and check my Etsy Shop. I make some blog posts and Tweet some news. Then I work at my Bench Mess to chipping, welding, polishing and smoothing some jewels. I usually ship my Etsy orders twice a week, and Friday is one of these days. So I prepare the jewels with their bags and gift boxes, ready to ship.

14.00 – 15.30pm

Lunch time! I go to lunch with my boyfriend Oriol, near to “Plaça Catalunya”. I usually spend my lunch time alone at my workshop but I specially love fridays because I go out to eat with Oriol or some friends.

15.30 – 18.00pm

I go to Postal Office to send some Etsy Orders and I take the rest of the afternoon to visit some customers, go shopping or search for new ideas and gemstones for my jewels.

18.00 – 19.00pm

I'm at home. Playing with my cats, Xino and Sophie, they're happy because we arrived early at home.

19.00 – 23.00pm

Washing machine.

Drink a beer.

Watch TV.

Answer my afternoon e-mails.

Cook something easy to dinner. For example, Pizza for us and Jam for Xino and Sophie. Miau!

After dinner, we enjoy TV all together, if is nothing interesting on TV we usually watch a film.

23.00 – 23.30pm

I went to bed. I spend 15 or 30 minutes every night reading into bed. It's one of my favourite moments of the day. Shhhhhhh....Good night....
