Tmi tag

It's been such a long time since Lauren, from daisy-drops, tagged me to do this "Too much information" tag so I thought it was time I answered. Thanks a lot for tagging me, Lauren. If you haven't checked her blog, you totally should! I love it almost just as much as I love her ;) She's seriously one of the most adorable and amazing people I know. And back to the tag... I hope you enjoy getting to know me more than you should and... well... let's get personal now! ;)

1. What are you wearing?
Coral-colored pants, a write shirt and Oxford shows. Nothing out of the ordinary...

2. Ever been in love?

3. Ever had a terrible breakup?
Yep. I mean, I was devastated so I guess. 

4. How tall are you?
Around 5 "3'

5. How much do you weigh?
To be honest, I don't know. And I don't want to know. 

6. Any tattoos?

7. Any piercings?

8. OTP (One True Pairing: what's your favourite fictional couple)?
Hhmm... My favorite is from a Spanish TV show (el internado) but since nobody knows it, I'm going for Chuck & Blair. 

9. Favourite show?
A lot! How I met your mother, gossip girl, Aida (that's a Spanish one), Casi Angeles (Argentinian), Friends, Greek, OUAT, Supernatural...

10. Favourite bands?
McFly, Action Item, Jack's Mannequin, Lifehouse, Dashboard Confessional, Goo Goo Dolls, Secondhand serenade, The Fray...

11. Something you miss?
Seeing someone in particular in Madrid...

12. Favourite song?
I can't choose just one, but it's probably one of these:

13. How old are you?

14. Zodiac sign?

15. Quality you look for in a partner?
Loyalty, kindness... I don't know. I just want someone that can give me the feels and that I'm happy with. Like you sometimes meet someone and you're like "ok. He's perfect", but he doesn't make you feel anything. And you don't mind if you're with him or not. And then you meet someone, and you don't even know why but you can't get him out of your head and all you want is to be with him and talk to him. And it doesn't matter if he's in a relationship with someone else or you haven't talked in months, you still can't forget about him no matter how much you want and try to. And you just know there's something about that person. Or maybe I'm just weird. 

16: Favourite Quote?
I'm not sure it's really a quote, but... it's still my favorite:
It's a bit long, but it's perfect!

17: Favourite actor?
I don't have one.

18: Favourite color?

19: Loud music or soft?

20: Where do you go when you're sad?
I tend to sit on my bed and listen to music, I like to be on my own when I'm sad.
(I kept Lauren's answer cause I'm the same)

21: How long does it take you to shower?
It depends on a lot of things. I can take from a song, to half an hour. (Yes. I measure shower time in songs)

22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
Like nearly an hour, including breakfast, and wasting time because I miss my bed. 

23: Ever been in a physical fight?

24: Turn on?
Gentlemanliness, kindness, a good smell, nice fashion taste, good music taste, sense of humor. 

25: Turn off?
Rudeness, swearing, bad writing. 

26: The reason I joined Youtube?
I haven't.

27: Fears?
Bugs, birds, butterflies, clowns...

Stress. I don't know, I cry a lot.

Kit-kat cake

You've probably seen this cake a million times on the internet. At least, I had, and it's something I'd always wanted to try. So when my sister told me she wanted to make a cake for her friend's birthday and she didn't know how to decorate it... this came to my mind!
Probabemente hayáis visto esta tarta un millón de veces en internet. Yo, por lo menos, sí, y era algo y que siempre quise probar a hacer. Así que cuando mi hermana me dijo que quería hacer una tarta para el cumpleaños de una amiga suya y que no sabía como decorarla... pensé en esto.

I must admit, it was her who baked the cakes, although I gave her the recipes. I've had a couple of birthdays this month and this has been my go-to cake! So when she asked me what cake to bake, I knew she couldn't go wrong with this one.
Tengo que admitir que las tartas las cocinó ella, aunque la receta se la di yo. Este cumpleaños he tenido un par de cumpleaños y esta tarta era una apuesta segura. Así que cuando me preguntó qué tarta podía hacer, sabía que no podía equivocarse con ésta.

Once she baked the cakes, she didn't know how to decorate it, so I suggested doing this and she liked the idea so I helped her decorate it and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!
Una vez que hizo las tartas, no sabía como decorarlas, así que sugerí que hiciésemos esto y le gustó la idea, así que le ayudé a decorarla y estoy bastante contenta con cómo salió.

    1 1/3 tazas de harina
  • 2 tablespoons pure cocoa powder
    2 cucharadas de cacao puro

  • 3/4 cup room-temperature butter
    3/4 taza de mantequilla a temperatura ambiente
  • 1 cup white sugar
    1 taza azúcar blanca
  • 3 eggs
    3 huevos
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1 cucharadita estracto de vainilla
  • 2 tablespoons milk
    2 cucharadas leche
  1. Preheat oven to 350ºF / 180ºC
    Precalienta el horno a 180ºC (350ºF)
  2. In a big bowl (or in the bowl of an electric mixer), mix butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.
    En un bol grande, o en el de una batidora eléctrica, mezca la mantequilla, azúcar, huevos y estracto de vainilla.
  3. In a small bowl, mix flour, cocoa powder and baking powder.
    En un bol pequeño, mezcla la harina, cacao y levadura.
  4. Add the second mix into the first mix and mix everything again. Add milk and mix once more.
    Añade la segunda mezcla a la primera y vuelve a mezclar. Añade la leche y mezcla una vez más.
  5. Split the cake batter into 2 tins and bake them for 25 minutes aprox.
    Reparte la masa en 2 moldes de tarta y mételos en el horno 25 minutos aprox.

    Once you've baked your cakes, we joined ours with nutella. Then, buy a lot of candy and kitkats and stick the kit kats around the cake using more nutella.
    Una vez hayas cocinado las tartas, nosotras juntamos las nuestras con nutella. Luego, compra un montón de caramelos y kitkats y pega los kitkats alrededor de la tarta usando más nutella.
