Feeling that I’m not honest & shocking news about Demi Lovato😒

Hey lovely bloggers πŸ’•,

Right now, I’m on my holiday in Granada and actually wasn’t going to plan a blog post. I’m on holidays and wanted to write after holidays and share my travel post. I will do that when I’m back. Today’s blog post is about the fact that I’m not honest with a friend.

So, everything was great yesterday as we had a big trip of 7 hours in the bus. Today we enjoyed eating great food and we saw some views and the beautiful city Granada. I even made a friend today. I will tell you about it in my next blog post. At 8 o’clock my mother and I went to my friend his house here in Granada. I already got a bit angry when I said fucking and he said don’t curse. I don’t like when someone says that I can’t do something. It’s my life you know. We are friends not lovers. My ex always said to me what I’ve to do and I hated it. He droved us to his house at the beach. Everything was allright by then I guess.

His father and mother said that there are jelly-fish in the sea. My friend said that he got biten once. I really don’t want to experience that. We didn’t go into the sea. We only walked and were just watching the beautiful sea. I was talking about a Spanish singer which lost his cat and that cat died and then he said okay and like he wanted to end the conversation and not talk about anything bad. So I was like okay. Then we talked about something else. Then suddenly he said: “Do you still take that pills”? He meant my antidepressants of course. I didn’t want to answer and said: “Which ones”? Then he said: “Those”. I don’t know why he didn’t said the words. I said: “Yes almost silently”. I felt like crying. He said: “okay” and talked about something else. I also lied about the fact that my sleep schedule is good again. It isn’t. I said we woke up at 10 today but my mother and I woke up at 12 πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ I really sleept well last night in the hotel. I hope to get any sleep tonight but would be difficult. It’s so hot here in the room with my mother and there’s a baby from the neighbours screaming and crying 😑. I don’t want any kids lol every time I hear that. I hear the sounds of the waves, that’s making me peaceful.

You may think I’m 100% honest about suffering from anxiety, being a mental health advocate and taking antidpressants. I’m not. However, I always have been honest with this friend but I think he also don’t want to talk about negative things so I better don’t talk about it. I’m sorry I’m sometimes a negative person even though everybody thinks I’m happy all the time while I’m not. I cry a lot. Anxiety make me feel that way. I know it isn’t good to be honest. After that I felt so bad. I could feel in my heart racing and I could feel my body shaking and crying but I didn’t wanted to cry. I let some tears but I think he didn’t saw it. I turned my eyes all the time and looked to the stars.

I feel guilty for not being honest with a friend that I felt anxiety again and felt like crying. I just couldn’t. That left me feeling worse. I needed to cry so hard but I didn’t want to cry in front of him which I did a few years ago and never have a problem with that. Just sometimes I prefer to cry alone but I also cry easily in front of people. I don’t know why I couldn’t that moment.

It makes me feel so bad that I feel this way as I’m at the beach and have to be happy. I have to be happy?! Is that even normal what I’m saying? I don’t have to be happy all the time when I can’t. It hurts me to feel this way because I’m always happy at the beach but sometimes I also cried at the beach. The sea makes me emotional and sensitive if that makes sense. Maybe, I just need to clean my thoughts and emotions with the salt water. My period is due for friday and always the days before my period I’m always so sensitive and cry about everything and just for no reason. I feel that my tummy is hurting. I really want to swim in the ocean 😒 It’s been a year. I hope I can swim tommorow in the sea and will have to be careful for the jelly-fish of course.

Then we went back to the appartment with his parents and my mother and we ate delicious dinner. Then my friend also said that I had to eat more because I ate to little. Well, I just like to eat what I want. I had enough. I get anxious when someone says that to me. Just leave me alone. Then my mother began to talk after dinner about death and stuff. Yeah, like normal talks about life. I don’t know why that’s wrong. My friend just said okay and went to his room and closed the door. It feels like he can’t talk about hard stuff. I don’t know what it’s. It’s pretty strange.

I don’t know. I just feel that I’m rambling about everything at once. I also feels this way because it hits me hard the news of Demi Lovato. This is what I wrote last night on my Instagram of @seaofwordsblog.

I got in shock when I heard the news tonight that @ddlovato took an overdose and ended in a hospital of Los Angeles 😭 The media said that they found her unconscious and treated her with Naloxone, an anti-overdose medicine, after possibly taking narcotics. This is really so sad news. The good news is that she is alert again, breathing and in a stable condition.

She struggled with addiction of drugs and alcoholism in the past. She battles with bipolar disorder and bulimia. This is often documented in her music. She have helped so many people battling with their own struggles and mental health illnesses. She helped me too with having anxiety. Her lyrics and music is so good. She’s just 25 years old like me. So young. She has a beautiful life ahead. She’s one of my favourite singers ever. I hope to go to a concert once she has recovered. Her music mean so much to me. She’s such a sweet, lovely and such a beautiful person ❀❀❀

I wish Demi really the best. I love the quotes from this collage which I found. This is just so true. Just because someone smiles doesn’t mean they are happy or that they aren’t struggling. Demi Lovato is a famous person and just because she is famous doesn’t have to mean that her life is all perfect. You don’t have to be strong all the time Demi. I know you are so strong but I really do hope you get the help you need. You deserve that so much πŸ’•

Your friends, family and fans will never ever leave you behind. We’re here for you. We love you. We wish that you get well soon. Take all the time you need to recover. I know it will be a hard battle but not impossible. You can do it πŸ’ͺ We are all warriors like your song says ❀

This message is for Demi and for anyone who’s struggling right now in silence. I hope you get the helo you need. Remember, you are not alone. You are loved. We are all in this together πŸ’ͺ❀ We are all lights in the universe even though it may can seem all dark. We will shine into the darkness and find that light again. We will be okay again. Trust me, we will. It will take time but we can get there. I love you all and stay safe πŸ’•

I hope that I can find the light too again. I really want to be honest with others as I’m with myself. I’m so sorry if I can’t be that today. Tomorrow will be another day. If anyone have some advice then it would be helpful. I’m sorry if this blog post got nowhere. I just needed to write this here. Writing is such a beautiful way of healing and processing emotion. I also love to sing and let everything out. I can be okay too and I hope Demi Lovato and all others who are suffering now can be okay too. I just cried in my room and my mother is sleeping and feel a bit better. When I need to cry I have to cry. Letting everything in will only make me feel worse.

Thank you all for reading this messy blog post. I hope you can all understand me. I love you all so much and thank you all for being there for me. This is my outlet for everything that I can’t say out loud but can in writing.

I love you all so much πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•,

xoxo Christina

Summer 2018 bucket list πŸŒŠπŸŒžπŸŒ΄πŸ„πŸŠπŸ‘™πŸ’•

Hey lovely bloggers πŸ’–,

In this blog post I will share my Summer 2018 bucketlist 🌞. I will share the 10 main things I want to do this Summer. I already made a list of 100 thing in my journal but I thought it would be way too much to share haha. I do that every year and then I don’t do everything on that list because it’s too much. The list isn’t in any order and is my personal list.

  • Attend the wedding of my brother Rafael and his girlfriend VerΓ³nica

I think this is going to be one of the main events this Summer. I already have my dress for the wedding which I showed in this blog post Fuchsia dress and below. I went again to the shop a few weeks ago to make some adjustments for the dress and will get my dress back in one week. I’m looking forward to this wedding since they told it to us last Summer. I love weddings so much. The wedding is on the 11th of August. My other brother Edward married a few years ago. Now, it’s time for my other older brother Rafael who is going to marry his Spanish girlfriend VerΓ³nica. He’s going to marry with 40 years old and Veronica is 38 years old. It reminds me that it’s never too late to marry someone. Weddings are so special. My Spanish family and Dutch family are coming aswell as my niece. It’s going to be again one of the best days of my life, an unforgettable day where we celebrate the love of Rafael and VerΓ³nica with the whole family. I’m also going to my first bachelor party ever of Rafael and Veronica and their friends and some family members. We are going to bar to have dinner and fiesta time πŸŽ‰πŸ’ƒIt’s going to be fun!

  • Go to the outdoor swimming pool at least 20 times in Valladolid

I only go 6 or 7 times in the Summer months and it’s really short for the two Summer months. The outside swimming pools are open since the end of June till the beginning of September. Sometimes I find myself lazy to go but I know that it will do me so much good. Swimming is good for relaxing and good for my mental health aswell. I love swimming so much. It’s good for my back pain, my anxiety and just everything. I always feel hungry and sleepy after swimming. It makes me feel like I’m flying in the air hahah πŸ˜‚. It’s such a good natural medicine. I also already read somewhere that the colour blue from the ocean and from the swimming pool make you feel so happy and relaxed. I already went three times to the swimming pool this Summer, so I will keep going to reach my goal of 20 of more times. Here are some pictures from these days.

  • Travel to the beach as much as I can

I want to go to the beach this Summer as much I can. I live in Valladolid which is in the main centre of Spain. The nearest beach for me is in Santander which is three hours away by train. I hope I can go to Santander after the wedding as in August or September. I love the beach so much 🌊. I always miss it and cry when I have to go home. The ocean is my home. It’s so good for your health, happiness and mindset. I’m going to Granada next week to visit a friend and we are going to the beach one or two day like we did a year ago. I can’t wait to swim in the Mediterranean Sea. Good vibes only! ✌ There the sea water is warm and not like the cold water in the north of Spain which is the Atlantic Ocean.

  • Be creative and invest time doing my favourite hobbies

I love to blog and I’m happy to keep on writing amazing content. I want to expand content and always come up with new ideas. In August my blog will turn one year old and I want to celebrate it with you all. I also love to write poetry and want to share it with you all. I also love to read and want to read more self help books and magazines which also helps to beat my anxiety. I want to keep taking pictures with my polaroid and digital camera. I want to record more singing covers because I love singing. I sang in a choir for 11 years and enjoy it a lot. Maybe, I can start a Youtube channel so that I can share it on my blog with you all. I want to continue writing in my journal and cherish memories. Being creative is just the best. I hope I can be really creative this Summer and share it with you all β€πŸ‘Œ

  • Go stargazing and see beautiful sunsets on the beach

I love the moon, the stars, the sun and just the whole universe so much. I love to go stargazing in the Summer and especially on the beach. It’s just so beautiful to see all those bright stars in the darkness. In the Summer you can also see many shooting stars. I love to make wishes on shooting stars. I also love to watch beautiful sunsets on the beach. It always looks like the sun is going down in the sea. The colours of the sunsets are also stunning and so beautiful. It give such a sense of peace. I always take some pictures from this moment to cherish these beautiful memories. The picture on the right is from La Rabita, Granada (Mediterranean Sea) where I went last Summer and will go again this Summer.

  • Face a fear

It’s great to have this as a challenge this Summer. By facing a fear I mean something I get anxious about and which makes me uncomfortable. For me facing a fear means a lot to conquer. I love to run away from things and postpone everything I fear rather than face it because of my anxiety. I know it’s bad because this fear will grow and grow. Then it will be more and more difficult to face that fear at the end. I have to go to the dentist because I have a caries in my wisdom teeth and I’ve some problems there. I know I’ve to do it even though the dentist makes me so anxious. I also have to look for a job and I don’t like job interviews (I’ve only had one in life and they never called me back) and also don’t like calling. If I face one of these fears this Summer I would be really proud of myself πŸ’ͺ. I know I’ve to push myself a bit but it will be worth it. I hope you can all wish me luck πŸ€

  • Travel a lot

I love to travel, meet new people and be in contact with people from other cultures. It really expands your mind. Travelling makes me so happy. I want to travel at least 2 or 3 times this Summer. I’m going to Granada (Andalucia, which is in the south of Spain and take 7 hours by bus from Valladolid – 600 km!) next Tuesday the 24th till the Saturday 28th with my mother. I’m going to visit my friend Antonio and his family. I met him on my way to New York City three years ago when I won the Many Languages, One World Essay Contest. It was in the Summer of 2015. Soon, I’m going to make a blog post about this one day. I’ve already been twice to Granada and loved it so much. We are also going to the beach of La RΓ‘bita. Going to Granada feels like a tradition because I go every Summer. My mother and I booked a hotel in the city centre which is perfect to enjoy eating tapas, shopping, visisiting the city and the beautiful Alhambra. You will see a blog post about this travel trip soon. I also want to go to a surf camp this Summer in the north of Spain and go a few days to enjoy the beach in Santander with my friend Maria in August or September. The picture below with “life is for…” is a picture I made during a holiday in Mallorca a few years ago. The picture below with my favourite beach towel was made last Summer in La Rabita, Granada.

  • Go to concerts/festivals

I love going to concerts so much, especially in the Summer because they’re almost every time outside. I also love to go to festivals and went one time in The Netherlands to Surfana festival with my best friend where there was beautiful live music, great food and awesome things to do such as surfing, doing yoga, wine tasting and other creative activities. Going to concerts and enjoying your favourite artist is just the best. Music is life and definitely increase my happiness 🎢. I already went to the concert of Sofia Ellar which took place last month. I also am going to enjoy the fiestas week in Valladolid in the beginning of September with my mother and friends. There are going to be many awesome concerts in the main square of the city centre. This is going to be the third time that I’m going to enjoy this beautiful week.

  • Go surfing after two years

The last time I went surfing was during Surfana festival two years ago in the Summer of 2016. I really miss surfing so much. Last Summer, I said that I was going to a surf camp and at the end I didn’t go. I also had to study during that Summer time which was the worst thing ever. I went twice to a surf camp here in Spain. It was so awesome. I want to go this Summer again to a surf camp, meet new people and enjoy surfing. Surfing makes you feel so free, happy and peaceful. I have my own wetsuit but I’ve to wear it and look if I still fit in it. I’m a beginner and still can’t surf waves but I’m learning it. Surfing is just da best πŸŒŠπŸ„βœŒThe ocean is where I’m the most happy. I enjoy every single moment and forget the whole world around me. I respect the ocean and sometimes I get scared because it feels infinite and is so deep. The ocean is everything I want to be. Beautiful, mysterious, wild and free. The picture below is from the Summer of 2015 where I went to Art Surf Camp in Galicia, in Spain.

  • Be happy and enjoy Summer to the fullest

Maybe, this can sound cliche but it’s really important for me to just enjoy Summer and be happy.Β Last Summer, I enjoyed Summer but was feeling many times worried and anxious because I didn’t pass my last exam of law from my studies in order to graduate. I had to do this exam again at the end of August. I remember times that I went to the swimming pool and when I came back home I was tired and had to study during the night. It was really exhausting for me. This Summer, I’m free and I just want to be happy and enjoy everything what Summer has to offer. Feeling bad in Summer makes me feel even worse because Summer is the time that life feels lighter and I also feel so much happier in Summer. I’m a Summer girl right πŸ˜ŽπŸ˜„πŸŒž Go away winter. I wish it could be Summer forever but then maybe you don’t enjoy it as much as I do now. That feeling of longing for Summer I’ve all year long is so great when it’s finally Summer and you can enjoy it. The sunshine is makes me feel so happy.

 

I love the pictures I shared in this blog post. I searched these pictures on Google and Tumblr. I hope you like them too. Thank you all for reading this blog post. I hope you all like this blog post. What are your Summer plans? Do you also have a Summer bucketlist? Do you also love the beach as much as I do? Do you like my list and can you relate to it? I would love to know it in the comment section. I will speak to you all in my next blog post. I hope you all enjoy Summer. Happy Summer to you all! 🌞✌

Love you all so much πŸ’•,

Concerts, a funny moment meeting your favourite artist and bonfires of Saint John πŸŽΆπŸ”₯

Hey lovely bloggers πŸ’•,

I already wanted to make a blog post about two amazing concerts I went to last month. This blog post is going to be about those two amazing concerts I went to. I don’t think anyone will relate to these two artists: Pablo Alboran and Sofia Ellar because they are Spanish. However, I love to share my music taste and soon I will also post a beach/Summer play list. I also am going to talk about the night of Saint John which is a typical feast in Spain. I hope you are going to enjoy this blog post.

I already bought the concert tickets of Pablo Alboran in Febraury because he’s a popular singer in Spain. I went to his concert on the second of June, just one day after my birthday. It was the best birthday present from myself haha and for my mother. I wanted to go with a friend but she couldn’t go so I went with my mother. Pablo Alboran is on a tour to promote his new album “Prometo” My mother is now in love with him too haha. Damn, I felt I was walking on the moon or Saturn as one of his songs says during his concert. This concert is going to be in my list of best concerts I’ve ever went to like omg asdghjkl I love you so much Pablo 😍 I wanna marry you. He’s 29 years old and comes from Malaga. He’s very handsome, cute and his voice is just so beautiful that it makes me feel in love. I’m a fan for so many years and I love all his songs so much. I bought the concerts tickets in February just when they began to sell them. Finally, I saw him live which is just a dream that came true. This was my best birthday present.

I will show you some of his songs from Youtube. I hope you like his voice as much as I do. Music doesn’t have any barriers. Even if you don’t know the language, the sound and the voice can make you feel something. I love going to concerts in Valladolid, my home city. This place was just 15 minutes away from my house. I could walk to it. There were thousands of people but I had enough space to dance and sing. I really like that. The concert was also outside which I enjoy more than inside concerts. It wasn’t even cold at all. It was around 20 degrees yeahhh. I get that festival vibe ✌

Pablo Alboran – Saturno (From his new album Prometo, I love this song so much)

Pablo Alboran – Te he echado de menos (From older albums and one of my favourite songs ❀)

His songs are so beautiful and really thouch my heart and soul. They are about life and love. The lyrics is just so beautiful which I can’t even describe with words. He’s honest, sensitive, caring and I appreciate him so much. Hopefully, one day I can get a picture with him and talk to him. That would be a dream. Thank you for an unforgettable night. I also bought a sticker and bracelet to have a memory of the concert. I danced, I sang and I felt so alive. I live for concerts because music makes me feel so alive which is the best feeling ever. I can’t wait to see you again!! I love you so SO much πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•

I also went to the concert of Sofia Ellar on the 22th of June with my lovely friend Maria. She was born in London and has the Spanish nationality. She launched her music career in Spain. She’s almost my age. She’s just 24 years and launched her career a few years ago just on her own. She became famous through Instagram and Youtube. It was such an amazing concert omgggg asdfghjkl. You know that moment in a concert where you are just so happy living in the moment and forget the whole world?! I had that all the time. She sang songs from her new album named Nota en do such as Nota en do, Mundos…? and Ana and older songs such as Verano con lima, Amor de anticuario and Rock’n’roll de chiquillos. I will you share some of my favourite songs below.

Sofia Ellar – Amor de anticuario (My favourite song ever πŸ’•πŸŽΆ)

Sofia Ellar – Mundos…? (From her new album Nota en do, I love this song so much)

Sofia Ellar – A Spanish little place (From her new album Nota en Do, she sings English this time which I also love)

First Rosco, a singer who also was playing in her band was playing a song from his album and then he sang the song La Llamada from that awesome movie which I still have to watch. I loved his voice. Then the concert of Sofia began. I love her and her band. She’s just so amazing. I love her voice, her songs and her music is just so beautiful. She write beautiful songs and can play so good guitar. She creates such a good ambiance. An artist have to make me feel something and she definitely does that. I loved the stories she told. She’s just so real, authentic, honest and a hippie girl like me πŸ’•βœŒ She had two big dreamcatchers on stage. One moment she even came to dance and sing with all of us downstairs.

This was the moment she came downstairs and danced and sang with us:

Soy esa niΓ±a cansada de oficinas que se busca la vida cantando esta canciΓ³n πŸŽΆπŸ’• . Regram from @cristinadcampo. This was the best moment of the concert of @sofiaellar last friday. I never been to a concert where the artist just come downstairs and dance and sing with us. It was so beautiful and omggg I get emotional every time I see this video and remember this moment. This song is called Amor de anticuario and I love this song so much. It's one of my favourites. She sings I'm that girl who is tired of offices and who lives her life singing this song 🎢❀ . It just reminds me that Sofia Ellar is so real, beautiful and so sweet πŸ’• She always says we are her family and yesss we are! It's so important when an artist is on the same line as us 😍 She also took her shoes off one moment and sang barefoot. I find that so awesome! Such a hippie girl ✌️ Love you so much xoxo ❀️❀️❀️

I was also so happy to meet her afterwards with my friend and I got a picture with her. She also liked my posts on Instagram or send hearts and she said I love you too through a private message on Instagram. Meeting and getting a picture with your favourite artist is awesome. It always happens when I’m going to concerts which take place in little places. I’m going to tell you now a funny story that happened that night. It was so great to meet Sofia. We had to wait for like a half hour after the concert ended. The security man said in an angry tone that we could enter the room of her but only two at a time. So, me and my friend entered and I said Sofiaaaa and we gave her a hug. She was so sweet. I had a black bag and when I wanted to get in the position to make this picture, my bag was in the way and let all the beer bottles and alcohol falling down on the ground and in Sofia’s bag. I hoped nothing was wet. I said that I’m so sorry and she said that it didn’t matter and she smiled.

Hahah, this only happens when I’m in the room lol πŸ˜‚. The man who was taking a picture said look what the one in the green did. We took a picture and Sofia said that they had to go soon so that’s why we had to do it quick. I would have loved to talk longer. It felt like we were her friends. I love that she’s so close to her fans. I can’t wait to go again to a concert of her. I will never ever forget this amazing concert. Thank you for everything πŸ˜„ You are da best! I wish her good luck with the rest of the concerts.

I shared this story on Instagram and then she liked my post and wrote: πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚you two were so sweet !! Nothing went wrong. Just smile!! I felt so happy when she wrote that and I wrote her back and said: Aaaah thank you so much Sofia 😍😘It was funny hahah. I love you ❀ You can see it here below:

During the concert I also bought some beautiful earrings of feather which I already wanted to buy since a long time. I love them so much. They were a bit expensive €8 but so worth it. She always wear these earrings of feather in her hair.️ I loved the merchandising and wanted to buy everything hahah. I’m a hippie girl forevah. Hippie vibes always ✌

So these were my stories about the two concerts I went to in June. Now, I’m going to tell you shortly about the night of San Juan which took place on the 23th of June. That night we celebrated San Juan also called the bonfires of Saint John. Spain is celebrating this night in all cities and especially on the beaches. Here in Valladolid we celebrated it by the river Pisuerga where there’s like a beach with sand. It’s not a real beach hahah a fake one but it’s great. It’s really a magical night & it’s also the shortest night. It’s typical to have bonfires. There were bonfires and a big one, and you could throw some wishes that you want to come true. You could also write a note with all negative things which you want to burn. I did this and it felt so goooood. I also enjoyed the music. It was a great night with my friend. I went with Maria Martin, and other people which I didn’t know.

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post. Do you also love to go to concerts as much as I do? Did you like these songs which I posted? Did you also had a funny moment like me when you met your favourite artist? Have you heard of Saint John before and do you celebrate it? I would love to know.

Much love πŸ’•,

Summer OOTD & roses πŸŒΉπŸ’

Hey lovely bloggers πŸ’•,

Today I would like to share my first OOTD. I never did this before so I want to begin with it and share an OOTD. I thought it would be fun to introduce a new topic on my blog. I’m going to share a Summer OOTD. I’m also going to share some pictures with roses which I took with my mother today. I hope you are all going to like it.

Here’s my Summer OOTD:

2018-07-09 12-417202569..jpg

Dress: Easy Wear (El Corte InglΓ©s)

I bought this dress just a week ago in the shop El Corte InglΓ©s. This is a famous shop in Spain which have everything. This dress looks like another green dress I have. I really love these kind of dresses. I also love the colour red. It was only €10 because it was in sales. Otherwise, it would have been €6 more.

Necklace: Hand of Fatima

I bought this necklace once in a traditional market here in Valladolid. It’s handmade. It was around €8. I love this necklace so much. The Hand of Fatima is also called the Hamsa. It’s an amulet that helps banish evil or any negative energy. It brings happiness, luck and good fortune to its owners. I hope I will get lucky.

Mascara/red lipstick: Kiko

I love make up from Kiko. It’s my favourite brand for make up. It’s cheap and has great quality. I got this mascara and red lipstick from it. I don’t know the exact prices anymore. The mascara was around €5 and the lipstick €4.

Today I went to a park near to my house in Valladolid which is called Las Moreras.Β  I really enjoyed walking with my mother and enjoy nature so much in Summer. Summer is a bit strange this year. In The Netherlands, I heard it’s really dry and doesn’t rain. This is strange because it rains a lot there hahaha. In Spain, we have 30 degrees but normally it’s already 35 in my home city Valladolid. When we did the walk today I felt a bit of a cold wind. A few days ago it even rained and there was a storm. So, it’s a strange Summer but I hope I can go to the swimming pool this week and travel to the beach soon.

Today I also walked in the park of La Rosaleda that means in Spanish, garden full of roses. It was really beautiful to see all these beautiful red, pink, white roses. I really love flowers so much and especially the roses πŸ’πŸŒΉ Flowers make me so happy. We took some pictures and enjoyed the view.

Thank you all for reading this post. I hope you all enjoyed this post. What do you think about my OOTD? How’s Summer time in your country? Did you like my pictures? Do also like roses as much as I do? I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love πŸ’•,

Happy Summer time to you all! 🌞 I can’t wait to go to the beach. I’m longing for that so much. I’m a mermaid and the ocean is my home.

1. Sunscreen lotion

This is just the most important thing to bring to the beach. Nowadays, there’s are many people which have skin cancer. It’s so important to use sunscreen lotion and also a high factor. This is especially important for people who burn easily. I can get a tan but not so easily. I almost never get burned easily. Sometimes it happens and it hurt a lot. I use factor 30 or even factor 50 from Nivea. It’s important to use suncreen a lot during the day at the beach. After swimming in the ocean you have to use suncreen again. And after a day at the beach I always use aftersun with Aloe Vera. This is just so refreshing and good for your skin.

2. Bikini/swimsuit

I always love to use a bikini during a day at the beach. I don’t have swimsuits. I had one when I was doing swimming competitions when I was younger. Now, swimsuits are in again and I really would like to buy one too. I have a nice bikini from the surfbrand Roxy which I bought on sale, it was like €25. My favourite bikini is from the surfbrand O’Neill and it’s also a special material. It’s the material of surfing wetsuits. I love this bikni so much. The combination of the colour pink/orange is so beautiful. I got it for my birthday a few years ago and it was about €80. It wasn’t on sale. I never buy such expensive bikinis but it’s great to get it as a present hahah πŸ˜‚ Do you prefer a bikini or a swimsuit? πŸ‘™

3. Hat

To protect yourself from the sunshine a hat is important to use. I love to use mine which I bought in Mallorca, in Spain. When I feel that my head is going to be too hot I can feel dizzy and bad because of the sunshine. A hat is the best thing to wear. I took these pictures below a few years ago in Mallorca during Summer with my friends. It’s my favourite island ever yeahhh good vibes! πŸŒŠβœŒ

4. Sunglasses

Fortunately, I never needed glasses but I use sunglasses. Those are without prescription but for the ones who use glasses I think you can have sunglasses with prescription. Using sunglasses is just so important to protect your eyes from the sunshine. It also looks great and fashionable. I use one which I got from a friend with aztec print

5. Beach towel

Of course, bringing a beach towel is really important to lay down on it on the sand. My favourite towels are one which is just like a normal towel with a Summer theme. My other favourite beach towel is a round one which you often don’t see on the beach. I bought this one from Etsy from the brand Beach Lulu and it was like €50 euros in total. It came all the way from America and I had to pay the shipping which was expensive. It was so worth it because I love it so much. It has beautiful colours and a drawing of a sun, yeahhh hippie vibes ❀ Do you also have a round beach towel? Do you like mine?

6. Flipflops

I love wearing flipflops at the beach. I have one pair of Roxy and another pair of O’Neill. These two are getting a bit old and you can’t even see all the print anymore. That was the reason that I bought a new one in the shop Carrefour. I bought such an amazing pair of flipflops. I loved the Summer theme. I definitely need vitamin sea 😍 There were just €3 so cheap!!! If I’m not wearing flipflops, I’m walking barefoot at the beach πŸ˜„ That’s just the best.

7. Books/magazines

If you like to read it’s really great to bring a book or a magazine to the beach. I love to read at the beach whether it’s a novel or a magazine. One of my favourite magazine is the dutch magazine about psychology. It definitely helps me a lot with dealing with my anxiety. You can read amazing tips on how to care about yourself and your mental health. Reading at the beach and hearing the waves is just so relaxing πŸ‘Œ

8. Ipod/mobile phone to listen to music

I don’t like to use so much my mobile phone on the beach because I want to be happy and enjoy the moment. I like to use my old iPod Touch or Spotify on my mobile phone to listen to music. I love to listen to music because it’s so relaxing and always make me happy. I will soon share a beach play list for this Summer 🎢

9. Camera/Polaroid

I love to take great pictures at the beach. Sometimes I use my mobile phone to take pictures but I prefer to take pictures with my digital camera or polaroid instax mini camera πŸ“· It’s great to have some memories of that day at the beach.

10. Hair brush

I love beach hair so much. I love to bring a hair brush at the beach and brush my hair a few times at the beach. If I don’t do it I have tangles in my hair which hurts. It’s really great to brush your hair a few times at the beach and especially when you went swimming or surfing. I bought a great hair brush in the shop Carrefour for €2.
