2015 favorites

With 2015 coming to an end, I wanted to write a post with all the things I've discovered (or rediscovered) this year and that I have been loving. They are all quite random and different from one another but I hope it will help you discover new amazing things too!

Merry Christmas

Christmas Day is already here and I really wanted to wish all of they the merriest Christmas of them all. I hope you're having the best day you could possibly have with to your family and loved ones. I wish you all the happiness in this world and that all your wishes come true!

I am so thankful for everybody who has visited this blog this year, for every comment I have received, and every e-mail you have written to me. Thank you for being part of this journey for another year.

I'm sending you all warm hugs (the kind of ones Olaf likes).

Merry Christmas!

Blogmas Overview

Just when November was coming to an end, I got asked by some fellow bloggers if I was going to do Blogmas. And believe it or not, I had no idea what Blogmas was. For those of you who may not know what it is either, it's basically posting every day of December until Christmas Day. My first thought was "what!? a post every day!? I struggle to post one every week!" but then I kept having second thoughts and I eventually decided to give it a try!

Easy Reindeer Nails

After this whole month of Christmas posts, you have probably realized this: I am obsessed with Christmas. I want my outfits to be as Christmassy as possible, my room decorations, my hair, my makeup, my everything! And even though red will always be my go-to nail color during Christmas, I do like to make them a bit more Christmassy. And this year I have been absolutely obsessed with reindeer (they're so cute!) so I chose them for my nails too.

Gift wrapping ideas (that I borrowed from Pinterest)

With Christmas day just around the corner, it's time to start getting those presents ready to be placed under the tree! A pretty wrapping immediately makes me excited about what might be inside. So I've been searching Pinterest for gift wrapping ideas that I thought you would like!

DIY Bow gift box

Do you ever go to a store and see something you'd like and think to yourself "mmm... I think I could make that myself"? Well, you're welcome! Because this is one of those things I'm saving you from spending your money on a store, because, guess what? Yeah! You can actually do it yourself! (And I'm sorry for the store that gave me the idea, because I actually like it quite a lot)

Madrid during Christmas

It's funny. I would love to move to another country and I complain a lot about it, but I actually love my city. And even though Christmas here doesn't look as pretty as it did other years, there is something about Christmas in Madrid. So since I always show you the places I travel to, today I'm showing you the place where I live. And during the best season of them all: Christmas!

DIY Card Display

It is no secret that I love receiving cards and letters. I even keep every single one of them that I have ever received! I had some leftover ornaments from my ornamental Christmas heart, so I came up with this idea of what to do with them! It's very simple and I think it looks really cute, so I hope you'll like it!

14 December 2015

Christmas music

I la-la-love Christmas music! I have to hold myself back from listening to Christmas songs during the summer, because, trust me, I'd listen to them if I could! So as soon as Halloween is over, I start preparing my playlist for the seasons. And these are the songs I've been listening to this year!

13 December 2015

Little cookie houses

These are some little cookie houses that I made with my favorite little person (i.e. my three-year-old cousin). They're seriously the easiest to make and she was so wowed by them but I thought I'd show you what we'd done.

10 things to do this Christmas

If someone knows how to plan a date, that's definitely Buddy, from Elf (the movie). I love everything about Christmas, including Christmas activities! And it doesn't feel like Christmas until I cross out all of these things in my to-do list.

Nutella Christmas Tree

I love Nutella. (Although who doesn't love Nutella?) And I love Christmas. So what can be better than putting the two of them together into a Christmas tree that you can eat and tastes like Nutella?

Christmas Wallpapers

I've been trying not to brag about this too much but... I've got a new phone! And I'm soooo excited about it and in love with it! And of course, I've been obsessed with making it perfect lately: finding the perfect case, the perfect wallpaper... And because I love Christmas, I did look for Christmas wallpapers, and these are some lovely ones that I found and you can use too!

Our Christmas Tree

We have a little tradition in our family and always wait until December 6th to set up the Christmas tree. My sister was totally against it but I convinced them to allow me to set it up on December 1st, because I wanted it there for my birthday!

Sandwhich Sushi

Let's face it: what is easier to make than a sandwich? But sandwiches are not a very fancy meal. Well, this will take your sandwiches to the next level. Oh, and if you have a little kid in your life who gets jealous every time adults are eating actual sushi (like my little cousin does), I think this is the perfect solution!

My birthday gifts

It was my birthday yesterday and for me, that's the best day in the entire year! I was so happy yesterday that you would think it was the first time that I was having a birthday.

2 DIY Envelopes (+ some decoration ideas!)

I love sending out Christmas cards (and receiving them, but that never happens...). Most people send their cards in the beginning of December, so for those of you who are planning to send out some, I have some DIY envelope tutorials for you and some ideas for decorating them!

The ghost of Christmas past posts

I love Christmas (but you know that) and I love blogging. So what can be better than blogging about Christmas? Today I am going to share with you five Christmas posts I published in the past

Decorating my room for Christmas

It's December! Yay! My favorite month of the year! Because 1) it's cold, 2) it's my birthday, and 3) it's Christmas. And let me tell you, I'm ready for all three of them! My Christmas decorations are out and this is what my room looks like now!

22 before 22 - final update

Guess what? The most important day of the year is approaching! That's right! It's my birthday next week! (December 3rd) Because that's what you all had in mind when I said "most important day of the year", isn't it? Yeah, that's what I thought! When I was going to turn 21 I made a list of 22 things I wanted to achieve before turning 22, which I named (my 22 before 22 ) so let's see how many of those things I actually did!

DIY Ornamental Christmas heart

Now that Christmas is getting close, I decided it was time to start decorating my room for the occasion. And the first Christmas DIY of the season is a really exciting thing for me to do. So I'm very excited about this post!

Season Wishlist

With Christmas coming up and, more important, my birthday, I'm constantly asked what I want. And even though what I want the most can be bought, there are a few things that can and that I would not mind owning

Christmas Moodboard

It's almost December, which means it's almost Christmas (Yaaay!) and I know some people think it's too early for Christmas but all the stores are decorated for Christmas, Starbuck's red cups are out, the first Christmas blog posts have come up in my bloglovin' feed and I've even spotted some Christmas trees! So I hope you're all already in a Christmas spirit because I know I am! And I don't want to wait anymore! But since some people may not be in the spirit YET, I've decided to put together some of my favorite Christmas photos from Pinterest (duh!) to help you!

New York Diary - Pt III

Two weeks ago, my dad ran the NYC marathon and me and my family went on vacation there. I've been sharing my trip with you in my posts: New York Diary Pt I and Pt II. Today is time to see the last (and to be honest, the one with my favorite photos) part of it.

New York Diary - Pt II

As you may have read in my New York Diary - Pt I, ten days ago, my dad ran the NYC marathon and my family and I went on vacation there. I want to tell you all about it, but since it's too much for a single post, I'm doing it in three parts. And this is the second part of my trip to the city of my dreams.

08 November 2015

New York Diary - Pt I

Last week, my dad ran the NYC marathon so we made a family vacation out of it to my favorite place in the entire world! New York was more beautiful than I'd ever seen it. And I absolutely loved every minute of my trip. I have a lot of photos and I wish I could show you all, but that would be too many so I've selected my favorites instead. However, they're still too many so I'll be showing you in three parts.

Glassesshop Eyeglasses Review

I, like a lot of people, have sight problems and need to use glasses. Some time ago, GlassesShop.com offered me to try one of their pairs and they were like a gift from heaven!

My first pumpkin carving experience

Halloween is not very celebrated in my country, so carving a pumpkin, despite being something I have always wanted to do, is something I had never done. If you remember any of my 22 before 22 posts, it was on my list too. So last Thursday, my cousins and I decided to try to make one.

My favorite instagram accounts

It is not a secret that I love Instagram. And even though I haven't been posting a lot of photos lately (I would love to, though!), I do actually do a lot of stalking and go through my feed every day. Instagram is all about photography, and photography is very important when it comes to blogging, so I find Instagram very inspiring.

Reasons to love Fall

Fall and winter are definitely my favorite seasons. I keep seeing everyone posting very autumnal photos in Instagram, and it makes me very jealous because it's still pretty warm in Spain. And even though the leaves are finally starting to fall, and we're slowly being able to wear our plaid scarves in the morning, this is not my ideal Fall yet, and I cannot wait for the actual Fall to finally arrive.

10 lovely desktop wallpapers

It wasn't that long ago that I published a post with some lovely iPhone wallpapers. I was looking for a lovely wallpaper for my laptop last week and I found quite a lot, so I wanted to show you my favorites!

Nutella Mug Cake

I am not exaggerating a tiny bit when I say this mug cake is the best one I have ever tried in my entire life! Not only is it one of the most delicious things I have ever tried in my life, but it's also super easy and quick to make, flourless, made in the microwave, and single serving! If that, combined with Nutella, is not perfection, then you tell me what is!

Fall Moodboard

Autumn, Fall, whatever you call it (I say fall, but I'm not a native English speaker), it's right around the corner! I think this season is highly underrated but it's incredibly beautiful and probably the coziest of them all. I saw Emma of Peace.Love.Vintage did a Fall Moodboard and I just couldn't help myself from doing one too!

Simple ways to escape adulting

As I grow older I find myself saying more and more often "I just can't adult today". I just can't adult any day to be honest! Even though I don't have as many responsibilities as other older people, being in my twenties, I'm entering the magical stressful world of adults and sometimes... you just need a break!

The best of Blair Waldorf

I don't usually judge people (or at least I try not to), but if you don't like Blair Waldorf, I'm sorry, but I'm judging you. And if you don't know who she is, then you must go watch Gossip Girl right now! Blair Waldorf has been my role model since the day I started watching Gossip Girl. And she actually made me change a lot, for which I'm extremely grateful. I always wanted to have her strength, and style and well... simply be more like her.

My Thomas Sabo bracelet

Today I wanted to talk to you about my favorite piece on jewelry in the entire world: my Thomas Sabo bracelet. Even though I don't have that many charms, I'm in love with it, and I'm always secretly hoping that someone will ask me about it so I can just talk and talk and talk about it.

Ways to make your room cozy

I think my bedroom is probably the place where I spend the most time in this world, so I love to keep it pretty. Besides, what feels better than waking up in a beautiful place? Today I wanted to share with you some ways to make your bedroom the cosiest place it can be.

Coffee Flan Cake

Every time I think of flan, I remember that episode of Friends where Monica makes a birthday flan and everyone laughs at it, but to be honest, I love Flan! And this is not only my favorite flan recipe, but actually one of my favorite desserts in the entire world!

Instadiaries: June 2015

Another month gone by and it's time to see what I shared in my Instagram!

What's in my travel bag

As you may have noticed I travelled quite a lot this year. And, I actually love packing and preparing everything for each flight. Even my travel bag! So today I wanted to share with you what I need to take with me to make the entire flying experience as perfect as possible.

DIY Memory Box

Last Monday, it was a friend of mine's birthday and I wanted to give her a present that wouldn't be too expensive (student's budget), but that would be something special (because she really is one these people you meet and instantly realize they are the kind of person you don't find a lot of. Someone you want to keep in your life, you know what I'm talking about?). With our year abroad coming to an end, I have stocked up a lot of "memories": train tickets, bar tickets, bracelets, flyers... So I thought of this great idea.

Lovely phone wallpapers

Today, I have a very important confession to make. Are you ready? Are you sure? Ok... here it goes: I'm addicted to my phone. I bet you didn't see that coming! Unless you know me. Because like 99% of the people who know me know I can't live without my phone (although I actually do). I guess that's why I love to keep it tidy and looking pretty. So today I decided to share some beautiful phone wallpapers that you can use too!

22 before 22 - UPDATE

The other day, I got the following notification on my phone: "6 months to My Birthday". SIX MONTHS!?! There did the other 6 six months since my last birthday go!? It feels like it was just yesterday!

I'm not sure you can remember but I shared a list of 22 things I wanted to achieve before turning 22, which I named ... wait for it ... 22 before 22. How original is that? I know, I know... And since we're half way through the year, I decided it was time to do some catch up and see hoe many of them I have fulfilled already.

Instadiaries - May 2015

Do any of you remember the old days when I was slightly addicted to instagram and used to share here what I've been posting that month? Well, I'm trying to get back to those days and start using more my instagram. So here's what I've been up to this month!

DIY Post-its garland

Am I the only one who loves post-it notes (specially if they come in different colors) but has never ever finished an entire pack of them? Well, if anyone out there is like me, I have the perfect idea for what to do with them! This super cute and easy DIY garland made (almost) completely of post-it notes!

20 facts about me

It's been almost 2 years since my first post: 20 facts about me. So today, 1055 days later, I decided to make some brand new 20 facts about me!

(I don't know why it says it was posted on May 8th, since as far as I'm concerned, I started blogging on June 19th, but oh well!)

Fun times, busy times

This week was full of exciting activities (and, unfortunately, also some sweet and sour moments) but overall, it left some pretty amazing memories that I wanted to share with you!

Visiting Poland

Last week I went on a trip to Poland with my friends. I was actually a bit sceptical about this trip since we were travelling with people we never travel with, and some other people were missing, and I was terrified about the weather but it actually was one of the best trips we ever made!

My packing tips and tricks

I don't know about you, but I'm in the middle of my Easter holidays right now. I'm actually going on a trip tomorrow. I'm so excited! The company we're travelling with doesn't allow us to take a lot of luggage, so it was time for me to apply all the packing tricks I've learnt through the years.
