A-Z : Get to know me

I sometimes think that the secret reason I started a blog was so I could talk talk talk about me. And this is what I'm going to do in this post. So if you would like to get to know me better, woop woop! this is the right time! I did have to skip some letters because I couldn't think of anything, but... close enough! 


And I also want to thank Charlotte for tweeting about Chloe's - from Lady Writes - post, because that's what gave me the idea to write an A-Z post about me.

Apple. I love apple products: my iPhone, my MacBook... I'm sorry but it just has to be apple! 

Blogging. Who didn't see this coming? I love my blog, and I love blogging, and I love the blogging community. I think my life would be kind of empty without blogging.

Cooking. And by cooking, I mean... baking. But b was already taken by blogging. I enjoy baking a lot. You can always find me pinning new recipes on Pinterest and making cakes for my family whenever I can. If you're coming to my house, I'm probably going to bake something for you... at least pizza!

Daydreaming. I am such a daydreamer. I live in my imagination, living a million perfect lives. 

Engineering. I'm studying computer science engineering, so I will (hopefully) be an engineer soon.

Friends. Friends is just the best tv show ever, and if you don't agree with me, you seriously need to re-watch some episodes! I always laugh so much and I can't get enough. Oh! And I'm fluent in Friends quotes and Friends gifs... 

Glitter. Glitter makes me so happy for some reason. It's just so pretty! I think I'm a bit like a fish: I'm attracted by anything shiny.

Hand sanitizer. I'm addicted to hand sanitizer. I think I use it more than I should. I always carry it around because dirty hands make me extremely uncomfortable.

Ice skating. I've been ice-skating for a few years now and I just love it. I may not be very good at it, and I know I was definitely way too old when I started, but I wouldn't be getting any better by wishing I'd started at a young age. And I just feel amazing on the ice!

(This photo was not wide enough  so I added some extra background. I'm sorry if it looks weird)

Jane the Virgin. I'm obsessed with this TV show right now. I find it so funny and adorable. I always say it but it always puts me in a good mood. And I want to hug every character. 

Kindness. I consider myself a kind person. And if I'm not, I promise I do try to be. I believe in that quote that says: throw kindness around like confetti.

Leuven. I was studying abroad last year and it was one of the best experiences of my life. And the city where I was staying was Leuven, in Belgium. 

Madrid. The city where I'm from and live.

New York. The city where I wish I lived.

Pizza. My favorite food in the entire world. Pizza >>>> everything. 

Quotes. I love using quotes. I constantly quote my favorite tv shows and movies or use quotes I've just discovered on Pinterest. 

Reeses. My favorite food is pizza, but my favorite candy are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Snow. I love the snow! I love when it snows! It makes everything look so pretty! And it's so much fun to play with it! 

The Little Prince. The Little Prince is my favorite book. Every time I'm feeling low, I re-read it. And it always feels like it's talking to me, like the whole book is about what I'm going through at that moment. And I know a lot of people don't quite get the book, but I feel like it's a book that cannot be read whenever. It can only be read when you need it.

Valentina. Valentina by Valentino is my favorite perfume. Although I only use it on special occasions since it's a bit pricey. And if I ever have a daughter, I would love to name her Valentina (because I love the name, not after the perfume).

Winter. I hate warm weather, I love cold weather. So is anyone surprised that Winter is my favorite season? My birthday is in Winter, Christmas is in Winter... what's not to like?

Zero coke. I'm ADDICTED to zero coke. I've tried to drink less coke and more water and I've survived but... my life is not the same without coke. 

Question of the Day

Do you enjoy getting to know the bloggers behind the post? 

A veces creo que el verdadero motivo  por el que empecé un blog fue para poder hablar y hablar y hablar sobre mí. Y eso es lo que voy a hacer en este post. Así que si te gustaría conocerme un poquito mejor, ¡es tu día de suerte! Primero lo escribí en inglés y ha sido un poco díficil de traducir, así que algunas palabras las he dejado en inglés. Algunas letras me las he tenido que saltar porque es que no se me ocurría nada, pero ¡casi! ¿no?


También me gustaría agradecer a Charlotte por tweetear sobre el post de Chloe - de Lady Writes -, que fue el que me dio la idea de hacer un post de A-Z.

Apple. Me encantan los productos de apple: mi iPhone, mi MacBook... ¡Mis productos solo pueden ser de apple!

Blog. Este era un poco previsible. Me encanta mi blog, y me encanta llevar un blog y la comunidad de bloggers. Creo que mi vida estaría como vacía si no tuviese mi blog. 

Cocinar. Y por cocinar me refiero a la repostería. Me encanta hornear pasteles, y galletitas, y dulces de todo tipo. Siempre estoy buscando recetas nuevas en Pinterest o haciendo tartas para mi familia. Si vienes a mi casa, seguro que hago algo para ti, aunque sea una pizza.

Daydreaming: Soñar despierta. Me paso la vida soñando despierta y viviendo un millón de vidas perfectas en mi imaginación. 

Engineering: Ingeniería. Estudio ingeniería informática, así que pronto (ojalá) voy a ser una ingeniera.

Friends. Friends es la mejor serie de la historia. Y si no piensas así, necesitas volver a ver unos cuantos capítulos! Siempre me hace morirme de risa, y no me canso de volver a ver todos los capítulos. Además puedo hablar con total soltura en citas de Friends o gifs de Friends.

Glitter: purpurina. La purpurina me hace feliz por algún motivo. Me parece super bonita. Creo que soy como los peces: que se sienten atraídos por las cosas brillantes.

Hand sanitizer: desinfectante de manos. Soy adicta al desinfectante de manos. Creo que lo uso más de lo que debería. Siempre llevo un botecito conmigo porque odio tener las manos sucias. 

Ice skating: patinar sobre hielo. Llevo patinando unos años y es que me encanta. Puede que no sea muy buena, y sé definitamete era demasiado mayor que cuando empecé, pero quedándome en casa deseando haber empezado de pequeña no iba a hacerme mejorar. Y la sensación sobre el hielo es simplemente increíble.

(La imagen no era lo suficientemente ancha y he añadido yo más fondo. Lo siento si se ve raro)

Jane the Virgin. Ahora mismo estoy completamente obsesionada con esta serie. Me parece super graciosa y adorable y sé que siempre lo digo, pero es que siempre me pone de buen humor. Me gustaría abrazar a todos los personajes.

Kindness: Amabilidad. Yo me considero una persona amable. Y si no lo soy, de verdad que lo intento. Lo prometo.

Leuven. El año pasado estuve estudiando fuera y fue una de las mejores experiencias de mi vida. Y la ciudad en la que estuve fue Leuven - o Lovaina - en Bélgica.

Madrid. La ciudad de donde soy y donde vivo.

Nueva York. La ciudad donde me gustaría vivir.

Pizza. Es mi comida favorita del mundo entero. Pizza >>>> todo. 

Quotes: citas. Me encanta hablar con citas. Siempre estoy citando mis programas y películas favoritas, o utilizando una cita que acabo de descubrir en Pinterest.

Reeses. Mi comida favorita es pizza, pero mi chocolate favorito son los Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, que es un chocolate americano relleno de mantequilla de cacahuete.

The Little Prince: El Principito. El Principito es mi libro favorito. Siempre que estoy un poco de bajón, lo vuelvo a leer. Y siempre siento como si el libro me hablase directamente a mí, como si tratase de lo que me pasa en ese momento. Sé que algunas personas no terminan de pillarlo, pero creo que es un libro que no se puede leer en cualquier momento. Tiene que ser cuando lo necesites.

Snow:Nieve. ¡Me encanta la nieve! ¡Me encanta cuando nieva! Hace que todo parezca más bonito. Y además es divertido jugar con ella...

Valentina. Valentina de Valentino es mi perfume favorito. Aunque solo lo uso en ocasiones especiales porque es un poco caro. Además, si alguna vez tuviera una hija me gustaría llamarla Valentina (porque me encanta el nombre, no por el perfume).

Winter: Invierno. Odio cuando hace calor. Me encanta cuando hace frío. Así que, ¿sorprende a alguien que el invierno sea mi estación favorita? Mi cumpleaños es en invierno, Navidad es en invierno... ¿cómo no me iba a gustar?

Zero coke: coca-cola zero. Soy ADICTA a la coca-cola zero. He intentado beber menos coca-cola y más agua y puedo pero es que mi vida no es lo mismo sin cocacola.

  1. I loved reading this post & getting to know you a bit better. I also love baking, cooking rather feels like a chore to me. But baking allows you to get really creative and I find it almost meditating. I'm already excited for the cold season, I cant wait for going iceskating and hot chocolate and Christmas movies! xx

  7. I'm new to your blog so I'm glad this the first post I'm reading.
    I too am a big daydreamer and that sometimes take away from being productive.
    and I love friends. I use to watch it with my family at night when it played on nick. I wish I was here when it first started but I was in Africa at that time. and I'm suprised you like winter. I like how it makes everything pretty but I hate the feeling. I remember the first time I saw 6 years ago, I was absolutely fascinated by it and I still am but I hate being cold. I love autumn better.
    thanks for sharing this post btw, for a first read on your website. it helps :)

  10. These is a great idea for a post, you get to know the person behind the blog better, I should probably write one too as my 'about me' page is pretty short!

    You look amazing on the ice :) it's such a different hobby to have!

Ice skating is something that makes me incredibly happy too. Also, I love baking and cooking. I always turn into some kind of chef when I'm in a kitchen, haha :)

  14. Enjoyed reading these and what a great way to start off on your blog as a newbie! I can relate to almost every letter ;) The hand sanitizer made me laugh a bit cus I have everywhere. My car, bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, purse, you name it I'll have hand sanitizer hahaha Nice to meet you. Mind if I copy this as well?! I'll link you up, of course.

    1. Oh feel free to "copy me"! It wasn't even my original idea. I copied it too! I'm so glad I'm not the only one obsessed with hand sanitizer!!

  15. I think was a really great idea for a post and it really tells a lot about you. I might steel this from you but of course, give you all the credit. ;) I loved reading your answers. I think it's super impressive that you study computer engineering and you also reminded me that that I should re-read The Little Prince, since I definitely didn't get it the first time I read it, which was a million years ago. Maybe it makes more sense now. If not, I'll ask you to explain it to me. Maybe through Friends gifs - those I understand. :D Great post!!!

    1. hahaha thanks a lot Hailey! Oh my! Can you imagine explaining The Little Prince using Friends gifs? Now that's a challenge! I don't think there's an "explanation" to it. I mean, I don't think there's a single interpretation. It feels different every single time...
