100 followers, blog news, and guest posts

This is a veery exciting post for me to write because it was a lot of good news and it all about my blog so... let's start with the most important thing...

I reached 100 followers on bloglovin!!!!

It may not seem like a lot to a other bloggers, but it is for me! And I'm so excited about reaching that number. So thanks A LOT to everyone who follows me. You have no idea how happy it makes me every time anyone follows me. 

New blog design

You probably realized by now that I changed my blog design last month. And I'm actually pretty happy with the changes... so what do you think?

More posts coming up

So I've been trying to post every Sunday for some time now, and I wanted to post more, so I think I'm going to do this from now on:
  • Wednesday: I'll do tag posts, if I've been tagged on any lately.
  • Friday: I'll post recipes/DIY/printables.... that kind of posts.
  • Sunday: I'll continue posting on Sundays, but my Sunday posts will now me more kind of lifestyle, because I've been reading a lot of lifestyle blogs lately and I love them and I'm so jealous.
Another thing I want to start doing is... INSTADIARIES! (This was inspired by Roze of It's Roze). So when a month ends, I'll make a post with the photos I posted on instagram that month and a little caption. I love instagram and I used to be SUPER addicted to it, but I don't post that much any more. But I'm trying to get back to using it and I think this will help be start using it more again.

DIY Pearls and ribbon bracelet

I must say I wanted to post this DIY some time ago, when I made the first of this, but I ended up giving it to a friend before I could take any pictures. But I really really liked how it looked so I just had to make another one for myself, and this is it! I think it's very cute and easy to make so I hope you like it!
Debo confesar que quería haber publicado esto hace tiempo, cuando hice la primera pulsera de éstas, pero al final se la regalé a una amiga antes de poder hacerle fotos. Pero me encantaba, así que tenía que hacer otra para mí, ¡y aquí está! Creo que es muy cuqui y muy fácil de hacer, así que espero que os guste.

You'll need:
  • Elastic thread
    Hilo elástico
  • Pearl-look-a-like beads
    Cuentas que parezcan perlas
  • Ribbon
  • Scissors
  • A needle
    Una aguja
Start by tying the elastic thread around the ribbon (leaving some inches underneath so you can make a bow when you finish). Then make a knot with the ribbon to cover the previous one.
Empieza por atar el hilo elástico alrededor de la cinta (dejando un cacho de cinta por debajo para poder hacer el lazo luego). Luego haz un nudo con la cinta para cubrir el anterior.

Now, you can start adding the beads. This is very hard to explain, so I took a lot of pictures to show you the right way to do it:
Ahora, puedes empezar a meter cuentas. Es un poco difícil de explicar, así que he hecho bastantes fotos para mostrar cómo se hace:

Now keep on adding beads until you reach the desired length of your bracelet.
Sigue hasta que consigas la longitud que quieras.

And you can now finish it off by making a knot like you did at the beginning:
Ahora átala como al principio:

And your bracelet is almost finished now. Just cut the extra elastic thread and make a little bow with the ribbon. And that's it!
Y ya hemos terminado casi. Corta lo que sobre del hilo elástico y haz un lacito con la cinta. ¡Y ya está!

7 deadly sins of beauty tag

It's time for another tag today, yay! So thank you Lauren for tagging me... again. I really love doing tag games so I'm so excited to be answering to this one. Also, make sure you all check Lauren's AMAZING blog: daisy-drops.

1. Greed: What is your most inexpensive beauty item? What is your most expensive?
My most inexpensive item is a pencil eye liner that was like 0.70€ and I haven’t even used. My most inexpensive is… maybe my Naked 2 palette. I can’t really remember the exact price but it wasn’t very cheap.

2. Wrath: What beauty products do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Liquid eye liner. Cause I love it but I can’t apply it properly, which makes me hate it.

3. Gluttony: What are your most delicious beauty products?
Most lip balms and my Santa’s Lip Scrub from Lush. Or maybe that’s just because I apply them on my lip and are easy to eat. Maybe mascara tastes better…

4. Sloth: What beauty product do you neglect, due to laziness?
Moisturizer, just as Lauren. And argan oil for my hair after I wash it at night. I always remember about it when I wake up the next day.

5. Pride: What beauty product gives you the most self confidence?
BB cream! I love whoever invented it. I feel like it makes me look like a completely different person. Like it transforms me from zombie to almost-human.

6. Lust: What attributes do you find most attractive in the opposite sex?
I have a crazy thing for arm veins. I don’t know. I just love them.

7. Envy: What items would you most like to receive as a gift?
A letter! (Cause I love letters). Or jewelry cause you can wear them around and it will always remind you of the person who gave it to you.

And the people I'm tagging are... Christina (again) and Roze.

Roasted Apple

This is one of the healthies and yummiest things in the whole world so I totally had to share it with you. I personally love apple pie, but it may not be very healthy to eat one every day, but this tastes almost just like it! So it's perfect! It's delicious and super easy to make you I'm sure you'll love it just as much as I do!
Esta es una de las cosas más ricas y sanas del mundo mundial así que tenia que comprartirla. Personalmente me encanta la tarta de manzana, pero como que no sería muy sana comerla todos los días, pero esto sabe casi igual, así que es perfecto!! Está super buena y es super fácil de hacer así que espero que os guste tanto como a mí.

Ingredientes / Ingredientes
  • 2 apples
    2 manzanas
  • 2 sweetner bags
    2 bolsitas de sacarina
  • Optional: Whipped cream or yogurt
    Opcional: Nata o yogur
Directions / Instrucciones
  1. Peel the apples
    Pela las manzanas
  2. Cut them in pretty big pieces
    Córtalas en trozos medio grandes
  3. Add 2 tablespoons of water and the sweetner to them
    Échalas 2 cucharadas de agua y la sacarina
  4. Put them in a microwave-able tupperware
    Mételas en un tupperware para microondas
  5. Heat them for 15 minutes (in the microwave)
    Caliéntalas 15 minutos (en el microondas)
  6. That's it! It's as easy as that!
    ¡Esto es todo! ¡Es así de fácil!

I personally love adding whipped cream to mine, and it makes it taste like apple pie. But I guess that makes them not-healthy any more. You can also mix them with yogurt and it tastes amazing too! Or you can just eat them without anything. They're amazing anyway.
A mí personalmente me encanta echarles nada y hace que sepa igual que la tarta de manzana, aunque supongo que eso hace que deje de ser algo sano. También puedes mezclarlas con yogur y está super rico también. O puedes comerlas sin nada. Saben genial de cualquier forma.
