This will be just a short post about a poem I made a month ago. I still feel this way though. It’s good to put my thoughts and feelings in words. I hope you will understand what I feel with this poem I made. I often feel like I’m just surviving and existing in life than that I’m really living the life I want. I’m afraid of death and I shared those thoughts in this blog post a while ago. However, I’m also afraid of life because I’m not living a life that brings me happiness because of anxiety. I hope that that will change in the future 🙏.
𝑯𝒐𝒘 𝒘𝒐𝒖𝒍𝒅 𝒎𝒚 𝒍𝒊𝒇𝒆 𝒃𝒆 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉𝒐𝒖𝒕 𝒇𝒆𝒂𝒓?
My life would be so different because I wouldn’t feel so extremely anxious for everyday life things such as going to the dentist or going to the doctors.
I would follow my dreams and know that I can reach them like getting a job in Spain and writing a poetry book.
I would join a choir again or do something with singing for sure because I love to sing 🎶 It makes me so happy 💗. Music is life like I always say.
I wouldn’t be afraid of death because I know that my life is purposeful and fulfilling.
I would speak up in real life more instead of hiding myself and avoiding people and confrontation.
I wouldn’t think all the time that people are angry at me.
I would be more happy with myself and with my life.
I would go into the ocean and learn to actually surf waves 🌊🏄♀️ and maybe even big waves.
I would let go of the past and be less afraid of the future.
I would deal better with having changes in my life.
I would travel the world 🌍 and go to amazing places like Aruba 🇦🇼, Costa Rica 🌞, Hawaii 🌴 and California 🌊. I would go to the @yoga_girl retreat in Aruba and have the time of my life.
I would live my life the way I want and be less afraid of what people think of me.
I would let go of others expectations.
I would know how to deal with anxiety better.
But most of all, I would just be much more happier, be more at peace with myself and live the life I dream of.
Hopefully, one day I can say that I made it 💪💗 after all the hard times I have faced in my life.
That’s what I and we all deserve.
To live a life we are happy about, do the things we love to do with the people we love.
Thank you all so much for reading my poem. I hope you all liked it 💗. Do you also feel that way in life? How do you deal with fear in life? Are you more of facing your fears or running away from them? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
Today I want to write about something I thought one night and still think sometimes. These are some thoughts which I think a lot of and can’t seem to let them go. I hope you can understand them and can somehow relate to them. I miss sharing my thoughts and feelings on here which was also the reason I began this blog. I just felt the need to write them down and what better way to share them here on my blog.
So, one Summer night I was sitting in the car with my friends and we were driving back home from celebrating a birthday of our friend. I was looking at the stars from the window of the car and thought of life. I think a lot of this life we are living. I thought about the purpose of life. I think a lot of it actually. I thought of the universe ✨ . It always amazes me and also terrifies me at the same time. We are a drop in the ocean like a drop in the universe. We are nothing compared to the big universe yet we are everything. Life wouldn’t be the same without us all here. Sometimes when I feel bad I think this life is worthless and I don’t understand why I’m living. It makes me feel worse as I think of all the pain and injustice in the world. I often think that it’s difficult to be that sensitive girl in this hard world. People can be so mean and really life can be so so hard and break your whole heart 💔.
However, I still believe even though during those times that I’m struggling or feeling anxious that we are here living this life for a reason. Even when life breaks our heart in many ways we are here for a reason. In those moments when I look up at the sky and see the stars ✨ shining so brightly and see the moon 🌜🌛 following us while we are driving I get emotional. It’s just amazing to think how we all ended up here and our living this life in this beautiful world. We may not always find it beautiful and life can be so hard but there are still moments like this that make it all worth it. I truly believe in that. I’m grateful for all the good people I have in my life. I love my family and friends. I love my blogging friends, pen pal friends and I love to be in the Yoga Girl community. Life is all about sharing love to ourselves and giving that love to others 💗. That’s why we are living this life.
Those moments I look up at the sky while being at the backseat of the car of my friend I began to think of my purpose in life. Am I doing some purposeful things in life? I’m still looking for a job and feel like I don’t have my life together. I’m still struggling with anxiety about getting a job, going to the dentist or other everyday life things. It’s all okay because I’m still living this lifethebest I can. I may not earn money from the things I do right now in life but at least I can say I’m making people happy. At least I’m trying, really I am. Even when some people from the outside think we aren’t doing our best, we really are. Don’t compare yourself to someone else their highs in life. We all go through ups and downs in life. Not everyone shows it. This blog means so much for me. I’m able to speak my thoughts and emotions out loud and can help people who struggle with life or feel alone. I have always thought that I’m here to help others and that helping others will heal me too 💗. I truly believe that’s true. I love to share the truth, be honest and be vulnerable with myself and with you all.
Eventually the universe will give us what we want at the momentweneed it. We have to take action but what’s meant to be, will be. At least, that’s what I believe in. I also believe that of course having a job and earning money is important to become independent and be able to care for yourself but the little moments in life are what makes life beautiful. You can earn millions of money, be famous and still feel unhappy. Maybe you are only doing it for the money but you don’t feel purposeful. That will not give you the happiness in life you need. We live for those little moments in life such as seeing a baby smiling at his parents, swimming in the ocean on a Summer day, feeling the warmth on your skin or drinking a tea with your mother during a cold Winter night. All the big things like getting a promotion at work, marriage or getting a new house will not mean anything if you don’t appreciate the little moments in between. Those extra ordinary moments are what make this life beautiful 🌟 .
At the end of our lives, it’s all about how much love you gave to yourself and to others. You will also remind yourself of all the beautiful memories you made, the friendships you made along the way, the places you have been to, the books you have read, the journals you have written, the music you have played and danced along. It’s all about love because that’s what matters the most in life. To love and be loved. You won’t remember the bad times as much as the good times. Your happiness is the most important thing that you will be reminded of. Never ever forget that. You deserve all the good things in life.
It’s all about living a life according to your values and not impressing people you don’t even like. When I got bullied during high school I was always thinking that if I changed myself maybe then those bullies would like me and treat me differently. Thinking of this back I know now that it wasn’t okay to think that way as I don’t have to change myself for anybody. We are all different and that’s what makes us all beautiful. We aren’t here to impress people. We are here to help ourselves and others. We are here to heal ourselves. We are here to feel peace within ourselves. We are here to love each other no matter what. We are here to give hope to people who have lost it. We are here to live because life is for the living.
“Don’t you cry for the lost Smile for the living Get what you need and give what you’re given Life’s for the living so live it Or you’re better off dead”
Thank you all for reading this blog post. I really liked writing it. I wrote it when I got a lot of inspiration. I always get inspired by looking up at the sky and seeing the shining stars in the sky. Did you too get inspired? What do you think of living a purposeful life? What do you think your purpose is in life? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
This was again such a good month full of beautiful music! 😍🎶🎵 I’m happy to share some of my favourite songs of July with you all below. I hope you will like them too.
Taylor Swift – The Archer
“All the king’s horses, all the king’s men Couldn’t put me together again ‘Cause all of my enemies started out friends Help me hold onto youI’ve been the archer I’ve been the prey Who could ever leave me, darling? But who could stay?”
I can’t wait to buy her new album on the 23th of August which is called Lover. I love this new song of her. It’s included in her new album. It feels different than her album Reputation. I love the sound of it and it sounds and feels so dreamy. I love it so much. I can’t wait for this new era of Taylor full of hearts, flowers and colourful things. I love her so much 😍🌸. Every song she makes is so good!
Miley Cyrus – Mother’s Daughter
“Don’t fuck with my freedom.
My mama always told me that I’d make it That I’d make it, so I made it I put my back into and my heart in it So I did it, yeah, I did it”
I love the new songs of Miley Cyrus! I have to admit that I had to get used to this song but I really like it. It’s a good song and it empowers women. Our freedom is the most important thing. I loved how her mother was also showed in the video. Miley Cyrus is back and I’m really happy about that.
Miley Cyrus – The Most
I love this video even if it isn’t the offical music video but it looks so cute. I love this song so much. The melody, the lyrics, the sound, just everything of it is so awesome!
Duncan Laurence – Arcade (Acoustic version)
I already told you in this blog post about Duncan Laurence winning The Eurovision Song Contest for The Netherlands. I’m just so in love with this song. He just released the acoustic version of Arcade which sounds as good as the other version. So pure and so emotional 😍😭. Goosebumps all over my body. His voice is so beautiful and this song means the most for me. FAVOURITE SONG EVAH. I can’t wait to hear him sing this song live in concert in March in Amsterdam! I also can’t wait to go to Eurovision next year.
Sam Smith – How do you sleep?
“I’m done hatin’ myself for feelin’ I’m done cryin’ myself awake I’ve gotta leave and start the healin’ But when you move like that, I just want to stay“
SO GOOD! Amazing song! I love it from the beginning to the end. I love the choreography and his voice is so beautiful. I have to admit that I don’t listen to many of his songs. I guess I have to do it more.
ROSALÍA – F*cking Money Man (Milionària + Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero)
These are two songs which Rosalía released together in the single F*cking Money Man. They are combined in one video. I love them so much. The first one Milionària is in Catalan. It’s a rumba. It’s about her love and hate for money 🤑💰. In this first song she sings about how she would love to be a millionair to buy and do whatever she wants. However, in the other Spanish song Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero she sings about how she would want to burn all that money and that God has to save us from it all. I guess we all feel this way about money. It’s nice to have money but money will never buy us all the happinesswe need in life. I love the meaning behind these songs and everything!
David Bisbal ft. Juan Mágan – Bésame
Amazing Summer song! 🌞💗🌊 I always have loved David Bisbal so much. I remember dancing and singing on his songs when I was younger and I still am a fan of him. I also love Juan Mágan who makes songs with a more reggeaton style. It’s a song full of good vibes, Summer vibes, happiness and love. Bésame means kiss me. They sing about a girl kissing him for the first time and that he will love him forever in his arms.
Sofia Ellar – La Revolución (For the movie Angry Birds 2)
One of my favourite artists, Sofia Ellar, from Spain has released this new song for the movie Angry birds 2. I love her so much. It’s very cute and it sticks in my head all the time!
Isma Romero ft. Alfred García – Cicatriz
Beautiful song! I didn’t know Isma Romero before. I love their two voices together. It’s such a great song. It’s a temazo like they say in Spain!
Carlos Sadness – Ahorita
I love to discover new artists 😊. Carlos Sadness also sang a song for the album “1016” of Alfred Garcia. He is a Spanish song-writer and his songs are of the genre indie and pop. I just saw this song when I opened Youtube one day and I loved it. It’s a chill song. It’s a song about not being in a hurry. Ahorita means right now or could mean in a little while. They use this expression a lot in Latin America. I always say that I’m on my way but then I’m sometimes too late.
Ed Sheeran – No.6 Collaborations Project
I was so excited for this new album of Ed Sheeran 💕. It’s an album full of collaborations with famous artists such as Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Eminem, Bruno Mars and so much more. It’s such a good album with so many styles of music like rap and pop songs! I already loved the song “I don’t care” from Ed Sheeran together with Justin Bieber. Here are my favourites songs from his new album.
Ed Sheeran ft. Camila Cabello & Cardi B – South of the border
LOVE THIS SONG 😍. I always love to hear Spanish and English together in one song. It sounds so good! I also love Camila Cabello so much. The melody is also really nice and chill.
Ed Sheeran ft. YEBBA – Best part of me
“But she loves me, she loves me Why the hell she love me When she could have anyone else? Oh, you love me, you love me Why the hell d’you love me? ‘Cause I don’t even love myself
Baby, the best part of me is you Lately, everything’s makin’ sense, too Oh, baby, I’m so in love with you”
WOW WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG 💗👌. These are my favourites kinds of songs of Ed Sheeran. I didn’t know YEBBA before and wow she has such a beautiful voice and together with Ed Sheeran it sounds so damn good.
Ed Sheeran ft. Ella Mai – Put it all on me
“I try to be strong, well, I got demons So can I lean on you? I need a strong heart and a soft touch And you’re the one when I want love“
Another amazing song! I love the sound of it so much. It makes me really happy to listen to this song.
Ed Sheeran ft. Paulo Londra & Dave – Nothing on you
Again I love it when I hear English and Spanish together in one song. It’s such a great mix of voices. It’s a really great song with a good beat.
BTS – Lights
“You’re my light No matter how far apart we are”
Wow love it! What a beautiful song! This song is all about love and I also read that’s a love letter to their fans. I think that’s so sweet of them. The music video is also so pretty.
Kygo ft. Chelsea Cutler – Not ok
This song was released in May but the video came out in July. I love the clip so much and the song is just AMAZING! It’s okay to not be okay. We all search for validation like you see in this clip. At the end of the clip the girl in the pink dress says: “I want pizza.” and “I look great after a mental breakdown.” I couldn’t relate more to these two sentences hahah 😂✌️.
Thank you all for reading this blog postfull of good music 🎶. Have you listen to any of these songs? Which one did you like? What was your favourite song in July? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
Today I want to talk about something really important which is about this special day. Today my blog turned two years old! 🎉 I’m so happy about it and also feel very proud of this accomplishment. To be honest I always get easily bored and also quit easily when things get hard. I’m happy that I sticked around and never gave up on blogging because it makes me so happy. I wouldn’t know where I would be without my blog. I can’t believe how fast time is going by. They always say time flies when you are having fun and that’s definitely true. I will share you in this post some of the reasons why I started blogging, some words about my appreciation for you all and some funny statistics like I did last year in this blog post 💕.
I’m just so happy that I kept blogging and never stopped. I used to blog more but now I prefer to post 4 or 5 times a month. I don’t have another blogging schedule. I prefer to post just when I have inspiration and want to. I never want to turn my blog in something that I have to do. I do it because it’s fun and I love it. Blogging makes me so happy. I love to interact with you all. I never knew that I would meet so many amazing and beautiful people like you all are 😍 You all mean the world to me. I really wouldn’t know what I would do without you all.
I also always felt the need to write 📝 . I have loved writing since I have been little. I used to write in a diary when I was younger. I still have so many journals and notebooks at home but I don’t use it that much. I only write there sometimes some poems or use it as scrapbook. I want to use it more or make a bullet journal. I always say that I’m going to that and at the end nothing happens 😂. I find blogging easier to do so whenever I have some thoughts or emotions I want to let go of. I always use my blog for that.
I never knew that my blog would grow so much and would attract so many people. I love to write about mental health, self love, feminism, travel trips, photography, poetry and books. I love to not have a niche as I love to write about a lot of things. This year I wrote some book related posts such as hauls and reviews. I also love that I share almost every month a music post about the music I loved that month or new music which came out 🎶. I love to discover new music too. I would love to share more singing covers as I love to sing and I would love to share that more with you all 😍🎤. I also thought of making a YouTube channel but I still don’t know if I will ever make that happen. If anyone has any ideas of posts you want to see on my blog, please let me know.
I’m just so grateful to have you all in my life 💗🙏 . I like that my blog is growing and that I get more followers but what’s more important than all the numbers are all the friendships I’ve made through blogging. You guys are da best and mean the most to me. I love my real life friends, pen pals and the friends I made through blogging. This community is just so powerful and so beautiful ✨. Everytime I feel my life is turning upside down and I feel like the clouds are crying with me I turn to my blog and I begin to write about everything what’s on my mind no matter how dark or heavy it’s.
You are always there for me and listen to me. I appreciate that so much. I love your advice but what I love the most is just to know that I’m not alone in my struggles and that theres’s someone who understands me and cares about me even when we never have met. I truly believe that online friends are real friends too. I can’t wait to meet you all one day. We will ALWAYS be friends ❤️🌹. I don’t say that just to say something nice. I really mean it.
I keep saying that nowadays we live in such a fake world where we are told to hide our feelings and not be vulnerable. We are told not to share our struggles because it’s better to not fall apart. Well, sometimes it’s good to fall apart and to cry. We have to let everything go. For me, singing and writing is a beautiful form of letting my thoughts go. It’s a way of healing. We all have our own ways of how to go through life. I think it’s important to have that because otherwise we hold everything in ourselves which at the end is much worse. We can’t have all our thoughts in our mind because at the end we will explode. We have to let it out in any form which works for you.
I also would like to share now some nice statistics of this blogging year. I hope you find them interesting too haha 😂 . I have so many more views and visitors compared to last year soI’m really happy about that.
Some blogging statistics:
Followers: 379 (Last year I had 212, so I gain 167 followers yeahhh!)

Sometimes I also see countries which I don’t know such as Swaziland, Lesotho or The European Union lol that’s not a country. I exactly know which bloggers friends visit my blog when I look at the statshaha. Thank you all so much! 💕

Thank you all so much for following my blog and for giving me so much love with all the comments and likes you give me. I’m thankful for all the lessons I learned this year. I still don’t know if I ever am going to earn money with blogging. What was funny one day when I was at home in Holland with my family was that my father said how you could earn money while blogging. He said that it must be something for me as he knows I love to write. I never told him as I don’t want everyone to know about my blog. I just love this safe space where I can share freely without being afraid of judgment. I love that like almost everyone on here are people who I don’t know in real life. I would love to meet you all but I just love that I can be 100% myself and be honest without thinking oh no that person knows me from this, I can’t say that. This is my blog without any filters. It’s just the truth.
However, maybe in the future I would love to upgrade my account to premium or even business to have more space and to design my blog better. First, I need money for that. I just will keep blogging my whole life. Sometimes I will blog more and sometimes less. I will always stick to be myself. I never want to impress people. I just want to help others in need and heal myself too while writing. Everyone here is welcome no matter what your religion, sexuality, race or nationality is. We are all one. We are all human. I hope you will all follow this adventure called life with the ups and the downswithme. I love you all with my whole heart ♥.
Thank you all for reading this blog post. What do you love about my blog? What kind of changes or topics would you love to see on my blog? Do you also think that writing can heal our hearts?Do you also think that internet friends can be real friendstoo? Do you think we will ever meet in person? I would love to know your thoughts on this. I will keep writing from the heart. Always. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
I love you all so much, to infinity and beyond, to the moon and back 😍😍🌜🌛🌟✨,
It’s again time for my favourites post! 😍 I can’t wait to share with you all the amazing things I did in July. It was a great Summer month and I wish to continue to enjoy Summer like I do. I wish Summer would never end as it always makes me so happy. I don’t enjoy heatwaves but I love the sunshine. I’m going to talk about my July favourites which includes eating delicious tapas and other food with my friends and family, going to the cinema after two years not going because of anxiety, my trip to Granada (will maybe make a travel blog post about the trip as well), swimming in the Mediterranean Sea, swimming in the pools here in Valladolid and much more amazing things.
Things I did with my family 👪 :
Going to the swimming pool 🏊🌞
I went 8 times to the swimming pool with my friend and mother. I want to go more times in August. With my friend I went the first time to the outdoor swimming pool as it was raining that day. The rest of the days I went with my friend and my mother to the outdoor swimming pool. There are a lot of outdoor swimming pools here so it’s nice to enjoy that during the hot Summer days because there’s no beach here. I swam a lot and was also reading at the swimming pool the book Everything, Everything and a Dutch psychology magazine. I also enjoyed some delicious ice creams. Swimming is so relaxing and so good for our health. Swimming all Summer long yeahhh!!! 😍
Wedding pictures 💒👰 🤵💍 💖
I finally got the pictures of my brother’s wedding from last Summer. My other brother Edward together with his wife Elke (they have a company of wedding photography) made these pictures of the wedding of Rafael and Verónica. They had to sort everything out so I finally got them and download them all. Maybe, I will do a seperate blog post about them because I want to share them all together. I will post a few of them below so that you can all have a preview. These pictures are so gorgeous and beautiful 💗👌. It brings me back only good vibes of this unforgettable day.
Granada trip with my mother 💗🌞
I just came back from Granda which is 610 km. from Valladolid and like 7 hours by bus. I love Andalucia, the south of Spain so much. My mother and I went to visit a friend of me and his family who I met during the Many Languages, One World Essay Contest in New York City in 2015. Granada is one of my favourites cities in Spain and of the whole world 😍. It gives me those hippie vibes. You see people dancing, singing and playing the guitar everywhere. The people are so friendly everywhere. The tapas are so delicious. We ate a lot of them. You just have to order a drink and then you will get a free tapa which is amazing. It’s only in Granada where that happens. It’s also very hot during the day but we chilled in our 4 stars ✨ hotel.
We enjoyed the swimming pool and jacuzzi on the terrace of the hotel. I bought some nice souvenirs and stuff in Alle Hop which is an amazing shop and other hippie shops. We also ate delicious Italian ice creams, a delicious pizza together with a glass of sangria on the terrace of our hotel. You could see the whole city. It was such a beautiful view. The only bad thing of the trip was that I lost my squeeze animal. I got anxious and cried 😢. It just meant a lot to me because my best friend gave it for my birthday. I didn’t actually lost it but it was in my bed and the cleaners of the hotel cleaned the room and the bed so I guess they took it without knowing. I will buy a new one as I guess they won’t find it anymore.
Swimming in The Mediterranean Sea 🌊☀️🐟🐠🏊
During the trip of Granada we also went one day to the beautiful beach La Rábita which is on La Costa Tropical 😍🌞🌊🌴 The night before I couldn’t sleep so well because it was warm and felt anxious so took diazepam from my mother. It helped so that I could enjoy the beach day the next day. I already miss this beautiful beach La Rábita so much 😭 The water was a bit cold which is normally more warm but I still love it always so much. There’s nothing better than swimming in the ocean and also watching a beautiful sunset on the beach. We also had a delicious meal with the family of my friend in a restaurant. I ate gazpacho which is a cold Spanish soup, croquettes with potatoes and an ice cream. It was all so delicious 😋 .
I always miss the sea and ocean when I leave it no matter where I’m. I’m forever a beach and Summer girl. The ocean is my home and my love for the ocean is infinite. It will never leave me 💗. Human beings are made of water and salt so basically we are the ocean ourselves. The smell of the salt air, the taste of the salty sea, hearing the waves crashing on the shore, seeing the beautiful ocean and feeling the wind on my skin all creates a sense of peace and calm which can’t beat anything in this world. I’m happy I live in a world which is surrounded by beautiful oceans. The world is beautiful 🌍🌊🌊
Birthday of my brother Edward, Noanne and Lisanne 🎂🎉🎈🎁
It was my brother’s birthday on the 14th of July so I sent him a picture of us three which he can hang on the wall. That picture was made on his wedding in The Netherlands which was also a beautiful day to remember forever. My little niece Noanne turned 4 years on the 16th of July so I sent her a cute balloon 🎈 . They loved my gifts very much. I also sent the same unicorn balloon to Lisanne which is a little girl from my choir from a man. She has neuroblastoma and also leucemia now so that hit me really hard. I also wrote them a letter. I find it important to be there for others even though if I’m struggling myself. They liked it all very much which made me happy.
Watching the movie The Lion King with my mother and my good friend 🦁🎥
I went to the cinema 🎬 after two years not going with my mother and my good friend. I’ve always loved to go to the cinema with my mother and friends. You may ask why didn’t I go for such a long time?! The reason is anxiety. Two years ago when I went for the last time to watch a movie I began to feel anxious and thought that time that I was close to have a panic attack. I got scared and ended up not going anymore which is really sad. Anxiety always takes away everything I love to do in life. It’s horrible and I’m so done with it. Sometimes I have to take little steps to overcome a fear because I just can’t do it all at once like going to the dentist. I’m happy I went to watch The Lion King which is my favourite Disney movie ever yeahhh! 😍 I even have the words “Hakunamatata” on the wall in my room in The Netherlands. I also had a cover for my mobile phone of it which unfortunately all got stolen.
I loved the movie so much. The animation version is amazing but this version too. It all looks so real and is so beautiful made! Simba is so cute. I cried a lot during the movie 😭 We also enjoyed delicious popcorn. I wish to go to Africa once and see this beautiful wild life with my own eyes. The Lion King teaches me so many lessons like that everyone is afraid of something, that you can learn from your past and that it’s important to face your fears. Even though I worry so much because of anxiety I agree that Hakuna Matata is such an important life philosophy to live by. I hope I will get there one day because life is way too short to worry all day and especially of things which aren’t going to happen. It also teaches us that our lost loved ones will always be a part of us.
I’m happy I went to the movies as it’s a big recovery win 💪 because I felt anxious once two years ago during a movie doesn’t mean that it will happen again. We can all learn so much from Disney movies. I will never be too old to watch them. I can’t wait to go one day to Disneyland 💗. Magic is everywhere around us, we just have to find it in ourselves too ✨
Things I did with my lovely friends 💕:
Drinking a delicious milkshake with my friend 🍦🍨🍧
We enjoyed such a delicious milkshake! 😍🍧 I drank a chocolate milkshake and my friend had a strawberry one. I also once tried a coconut milkshake. I love them all but my fav is chocolate. Everything with chocolate is my favourite evah. I love to eat ice cream 🍦, drink milkshakes and any form of dessert. It’s much better to eat and drink this during the Summer. So refreshing & so delicious mmm! 😋
Eating at the greek restaurant and enjoying a drink on a terrace 🍴💕
After a year we ate again in Pita. gr, griegos artesanos in Valladolid. It’s one of my favourites restaurants in Valladolid. I love Greek food so much 😍🇬🇷 I wish to go one day! The food is cheap and soooo delicious 😋. Also the service is very good and fast. They always explain what everything is. We ate delicious mezzes with pita bread. My favourite sauce is the yoghurt and the one with feta. We also loved the delicious Greek lemonade. We also ate musakas with salad and more pita bread. As dessert we tried something different this time which was baklavas with nuts and yoghurt. It was so damn delicious. We loved it all so much! We will be back soon again yeah yeah yeah!
After eating a delicious Greek dinner on that Friday night I went to a terrace with my friends. We also got some delicious sweets. I love chuches 🍬. It was pretty cold afterwards. The nights here in Valladolid can be cold and yes even during the Summer 😂❄️ It was 15 degrees that night brrr.
Eating tapas and delicious ice cream rolls with my friends 🍦💕
It was nice to see my lovely friend Iris again after a year together with Maria. We tried for the first time ice cream rolls omggg it’s so delicious 😋 I have always seen this popular ice cream on Instagram and was very curious to try it. Sometimes a hype can be overrated but this was definitely as good as it looks! 😍👌Mine was with strawberries and as topping white chocolate. My friends had one with strawberries, oreos and white chocolate. I can’t wait to try another one again! Afterwards, we ate some delicious tapas. I love to eat croquettes and a mosto which is grape juice in the popular bar El Corcho. We also loved the solomillo al roquefort in another famous bar called La Tasquita. Spanish food is just da best! 💗 Viva España 🇪🇸, oleeee!
Hot Summer night with my friend and mother 🌞🔥
I enjoyed some delicious Spanish food with my friend Maria. We ate a delicious pincho moruno with potatoes and tortilla at my favourite restaurant called Elany. When we drink a mosto we always get a free tapa which was chorizo this time. I love the owners which are from Romania so much. My family knows them so much and it’s so great to have your fav restaurant 5 min from your home. One time we also got a free flan 🍮. I also love to always give them a tip.
Afterwards, my mamita and I enjoyed a manzanilla tea 🍵 and a mosto at La Plaza Mayor. It was 38 degrees the whole day so it was too hot to be inside. It was nice to be at a terrace during the night as the temperature was cooling down. Global warming is not something fake. It’s so real and I’m experiencing it right now in Spain. It’s never been so hot and so crazy weather during the Summer. We can all do something to save this planet 🌍🙏 One day it will be too late….

Watched the movie Campeones 🎬
I watched this movie on the bus trip to Granada. I already wanted to watch this movie for so long. It’s a beautiful Spanish movie. I cried so much 😍😭. It’s about a trainer of basketball who get a punishment of driving too hard because of drinking alcohol. He then has to train a team which all have sindrome of down. I think this Spanish movie is so important. It’s all about love, friendships and inclusion. We all deserve to feel equal and be treated as persons. We all deserve the same opportunities in life no matter what 🙏. This movie also won the prize of best Spanish movie 2019. There was also a beautiful sentence said in the movie which was: “You treated us as humans.” “Because you are humans”. I wish there would be more movies like this one because they are so necessary. We are all equal, always remember that.
Thank you all for reading this blog post. What did you do in July? What are your favourites from my list? Do you have any Summer trips planned? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.
