Blogmas Day 16: Christmas Recipe or Favorite Food / Receta o Comida Navideña Favorita

English

Hi guys! For today’s Blogmas, the topic is one of my favorites: food! I genuinely can’t get enough of it during this season, and I love many traditional and modern approaches to Christmas cooking. Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to prepare a festive recipe. I’ve been working on my final degree project and programming course, so I’ve kept the cooking very low-key and simple for the most part. But I did find some really delicious Christmas food… keep reading to find out about that!

Blogmas Day 15: Christmas Lights in Barcelona / Luces de Navidad en Barcelona

English

Hi guys! And welcome to the 15th day of Blogmas. Today’s post is about my city, Barcelona, and it’s pretty lights. I love walking around town with my dog, Lana, while listening to music and looking at them as the sun is setting. This year I haven’t had the chance to do it as much as I would normally, but it still warms my heart like a good cup of hot chocolate!

Keep scrolling to see the pictures I’ve taken so far of Las Ramblas, Plaça Catalunya, and Gran Via

Blogmas Day 14: Christmas Travel Throwback / Viajes en Navidad

Blogmas Day 14: Christmas Travel Throwback / Viajes en Navidad

Hi guys! How’s it going? Today’s Blogmas post is all about travel. Traveling is one of my favorite things in the entire world, and even though lockdown has made it impossible for us to travel like we used to (in my some areas of my country we can barely move across cities for security reasons), I’ve been reminiscing a lot about the cities I’ve been lucky enough to visit in the past. Every year since I was 14 years old, my parents would take me and my brother to a different city in early December. We’ve visited local places as well as big cities like London, Paris, Rome, Berlin, Prague and Oporto! Last year, during my stay in the UK, I also visited Edinburgh, Manchester and London (for the second time) with one of my best friends during the wintertime.

Hi guys! How was your week? In today’s 13th Blogmas (how quickly time passes!) we are going to talk about a topic that I’ve always liked, but it wasn’t until recently that I started to take seriously: essential oils. I already have two Christmas favorites from the Young Living brand.

Blogmas Day 11: Then vs Now / Día 11: Antes y Ahora

Blogmas Day 11: Then vs Now / Día 11: Antes y Ahora

English

Hi guys! And welcome to my 11th post of Blogmas. To some of you, this title might sound a bit bizarre. It’s a bit personal, actually, and definitely up for interpretation. But for me it has a more specific meaning: nearlycrispi recently proposed a challenge with three prizes to redo one of our older looks and see how we’d do. I liked the idea very much; aside from the fact that she was the hosting the giveaway (and yesterday I found out I won one of the prizes!), I think it’s a good way to see how far we’ve come and to test ourselves. I re-did an eyelook from 2018, one of my favorites to date back then. Keep reading to see the change!

Hi guys! It’s the tenth day of Blogmas and it’s time to talk about one of our favorite topics around here: makeup! I’ll be guiding you through a new makeup look that I’ve created for this post and I’ll be showing you old ones so you get some inspo from them as well. For this year’s makeup look, I wanted to do a different and creative, glittery look. As you’ll see in past years’ makeup, I use gold, green and red a lot during this season, and this time it was no exception.

Lo que sabemos sobre la colección de maquillaje de My Chemical Romance (y cómo conseguirla en España)

En las últimas horas, los siempre crípticos My Chemical Romance han roto su eterno silencio (casi tan eterno como su ruptura) para ofrecer a sus fans un teaser de una rosa ardiendo con Give ‘Em Hell, Kid de fondo. Aunque muchos, y me incluyo, nos emocionamos demasiado rápido pensando que se podía tratar de nueva música, la realidad no va a decepcionar a las y los amantes del maquillaje. HipDot, los creadores de maquillaje cruelty-free y vegano que han traído colecciones como la de la artista Kesha, son los encargada de revivir su obra Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge.

En este post te contaré todo lo que sabemos sobre la colección: swatches, horarios aproximados, y cómo enviarla a España (ya que la página no envía directamente).
