Music of April 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕 ,

I can’t wait so share you the songs I’ve been listening to in April. April was such a good music month. I have loved the new songs that have been released 💗. I hope you will like them too.

Taylor Swift ft. Brendon Urie of Panic! At The Disco – ME!

This song is soooo good, such a bop like my lovely Chloe always says. I’m so happy Taylor is back with an amazing new single. I also love that Brendon from Panic! At The Disco joins her. It’s such an uplifting song which makes me happy every time I listen to it. I love the colours, the cute cats and aahhh Taylor is just a ray of sunshine and always light up my world. I can’t wait to see her live one time 😍. I’m excited for her new era after her album Reputation.

Morat & Aitana – Presiento

I love Aitana and already wrote sometimes about her. I know her from the Spanish talentshow Operación Triunfo. I also love the group Morat so much. They are from Colombia and make so many good songs. The clip is really cute and the song makes me happy! 💕 This two singing together is just the best. Morat is very popular in Spain and Latin America.

Ariana Grande & Victoria Monét – MONOPOLY

Ariana only makes good music! What I love so much is when she throws Trump, haters and negativity away in her video. Haha it’s so funny and so good 😂. It’s a really nice song!

LANY & Julia Michaels – “okay”

“I’m gonna be okay, right?
I’m gonna be okay, right?
I wish I could tell myself that at night”

I love every song with Julia Michaels. She does so well with every collobaration. I didn’t know LANY before. It sounds really great! I also find the lyrics very relatable.

Lola Indigo & Lalo Ebratt – Maldición

Lola Indigo also called Mimi and also known from the Spanish talentshow Operación Triunfo was the first one that had to leave in the first live show. Now, she is doing amazing and every song she released is AMAZING! Lola indigo is her artist name now and she formed a group where she sings and dances. You can see that in every clip. I just find it amazing. This song is also so good! I really hope she will be known internationally too because she’s just amazing. I can’t wait for her first album in May. I’m excited! 😍

Lola Indigo – El humo (Original song from the movie I can quit whenever I want)

Originally this song is from the Spanish movie “I can quit whenever I want” but Lola Indigo adapted it. I love it! It reminds me when a jury in the talentshow said to her that she isn’t a dancer but just acts like dancer and everybody in Spain was like whaaat?! She’s a dancer and singer! She also participated in Fama a bailar which is a talentshow of dancing in Spain. I wish I could dance as good as she does 💃

BTS ft. Halsey – Boy with luv

Okay, so this is the first time that I’m listening to a kpop song. I have to say that it was really great. I love it! It’s such a cute clip. They sing good and also dance really good. I also love that the clothes are pink. It really gives me the feeling of happiness. I’m going to listen to more songs and let you know what I think. Hahaha, next blog post I will know everything about kpop and be a diehard fan such as my lovely friend chloe.

JONGHYUN ft. MV – Lonely

This song was release two years ago. Jonghyun killed himself at the age of 27 years and was the member of the kpop group SHInee. I just found this song and I find it very sad but also beautiful. I looked to the English translation and it made me really sad. He was suffering so much and felt lonely. I’m sad no one could save him but I’m sure he is an angel in heaven. Having a mental illness as I experience anxiety is horrible. Every mental illness needs to be treated well.

Luis Fonsi, Sebastián Yatra, Nicky Jam – Date la vuelta

LOVE THIS SONG! 😍 I love these artists and I love latin music so much! It’s good to dance on it and you get really good vibes when you listen to it.

Nerea Rodríguez – Tu segunda opción

Nerea is also from the Spanish talentshow. I love her voice and this new single of her. She sings about how she isn’t a second choice and that that person don’t deserve her forgiveness. I think it’s a great song with a beautiful message.

Sara Bareilles ft. John Legend – A safe place to land

This is a beautiful song! I love Sara Bareilles singing together with John Legend. It sounds so good 👏

Tom Odell – Summer day

“I don’t know much about society
Or if we’re growing up quicker than we’re meant to be”

The lyrics is so relatable and it’s just such a happy song. The animation is pretty funny. It’s a song which makes me think of Summer days. I can’t wait for Summer time which always makes me happy and relax 🌞🌊

Thank you all for reading this blog post. What was your favourite song from my list? Which music did you listen to in April? Let me know in the comments. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

Reflection on 2018 & happy new year to you all! 🎉✨💕💫

Hey lovelies 💕,

Happy new year to you all! ✨🎉 In this post I will talk about my 2018 and will show you how I celebrated New Year’s Eve. I’m glad I don’t have a cold amymore but just tonight I got my period so yeah that also sucks 😭 I’m glad I take medication for the cramps because otherwise I wouldn’t survive it. Besides, I’m also being anxious about my appointment of getting one of my wisdom teeth pulled out this week. I keep postponing the appointment. I know I have to do it but I’m so scared. H e l p. I also don’t want to do it in Holland. Here in Spain it’s much cheaper and the dentist understands my anxiety but I’m still so afraid and I just feel like I can’t cope. If anyone have some more tips to survive it I will be forever grateful 🙏💕 I can always take medication for anxiety if that’s enough to help me cope with it.

We are already in 2019. A year has flown by. As usually I want to reflect on my year with this post and also write some important things for you all. Every year has its ups and downs. Every year consists of good things and bad things which happen to us. The most important thing is how we react to all these things. I know how hard it’s to stay positive in this sometimes dark world. I just keep believing that there are so many good things in the world and that there are indeed so many good people. You just have to find your tribe. I’m so glad I did.

I’m so happy with my blogging community, mental health community, Yoga Girl community and the goddess revolution community. I’m thankful that I joined these communities this year. They made me feel less alone and so much happier. If I’m in Holland I will maybe go to a meet up with some yoga girls. I also really wish that we will continue to all be friends and hopefully one day we will all meet ✨ I know the universe brought us all together for a reason which is to be connected with awesome people, share our struggles and feel supported.

I learned a lot this year. I learn every day from this world. This year I realized that there are truly lovely people who care about you and want you to be happy. I learned that it’s better to have a few good friends than a million of fake friends. The ones who love you will always be there for you no matter what. I learned that true love exists when I saw my brother getting married in August in Spain. I learned that this life is an adventure. Sometimes we win and sometimes we loose. We learn from every experience. I also learned that it’s okay if I’m not where I want to be in life. I still have a long way to go. I will find a career I love and will keep growing. It all takes time, pacience and trust in myself. I have to love myself, believe in myself and know that I can make my dreams come true such as working and living in Spain ✨

I also went to my first feminist strike in Valladolid, in Spain on International Women’s Day on the 8th of March with my mother. This was such an empowerful event. I never went to a demonstration before. I really wish 2019 will be the year that less women will be suffering from violence. I wish that women and men have the same human rights. Together we are starting a revolution. This is just the beginning. 2019 will be the year where women can be themselves, love themselves and love each other 💕

This year I also learned that music is the best thing in life 🎶 I would be lost without music. I went to so many amazing concerts such as the Operación Triunfo 2017 concert in Madrid with my friend Maria 💕 Operación Triunfo makes me so happy and full of life. I also enjoyed the concert of Pablo Alboran, Chenoa, Hombres G and Celtas Cortos with my mother in Valladolid. I also enjoyed so much the concert of Sofia Ellar with my friend Maria. I can’t wait to see her again. It was so lovely to meet Sofia and get a picture with her. She’s the best and I can’t wait to see her singing again 😍

This year I began to read again a lot which I loved to do so much when I was younger. I will continue reading this new year. I also kept writing and being creative. I hope to create more amazing content on this blog. Writing is amazing. I travelled to Madrid, Granada, Santander and Somo. I discovered Somo which is a beautiful surfing village in the north of Spain. In 2019 I really want to go to a surf camp again 🏄‍♀️🌊🌞. I didn’t go surfing for more than two years. I miss it so much. It’s also so good for my mental health. The sea is my home and cleans my soul. The beach is my favourite place on this earth. I can’t wait to travel to more amazing places and meet more amazing people.

Maybe for some of you this year was a hard year. Maybe some of you have lost someone close to you. Maybe you just didn’t felt okay and were struggling. I’m here for you. It’s okay to grief. It’s okay to not be okay. It’s okay to feel sad. Feelings change and emotions change but it all takes time. Try to not be hard on yourself next year. Remember, I’ll will always be there for you 💕 I hope you will invest in self love and self care this new year because that’s the most important thing that matters. I also encourage you all to surround yourself with people who love you and who bring you only good vibes because you deserve that ✨.

I celebrated my New Year’s Eve in Valladolid, in Spain. I decided to not go out with my friends. I also didn’t go out last year. I used to party every year but I don’t feel in the mood anymore. I have to do what feels good to me. I went to the hairdressers in the afternoon to cut the dead ends, my bangs and they made curls in my hair. I love to look good for myself. I dressed up at home and did my make up. My mother and I went to the house of the mother of the wife of my brother. We celebrated all together New Year’s Eve: Rafael, my mother, Véronica, Véronica’s mother and her brother. We enjoyed eating delicious Spanish food.

We ate cheese, jamon serrano, chorizo, bread and chicken. I didn’t eat the fish because I don’t like fish so much haha 😂 At 12 o’clock we watched the television and ate the 12 grapes. We also had champagne 🥂. It’s a tradition in Spain to eat the 12 grapes. They say it brings luck. We watched television where we were hearing beautiful music and we played Spanish card games. I really loved it so much. I love playing games with my family. At 3.30 am my mother and I went home and we stayed in watching some television. We went to bed at 6 am pretty late but doesn’t matter because it’s a special night. I’m glad I didn’t go out because as soon as we were home I got my period haha. On New Year’s Day we just stayed in and chilled. I saw the movie Grease. I just love that movie & the music so much 😍 I also saw the movie Paper Towns which I love so much from John Green. I already saw this movie with my best friend one day and loved it.

l wish you all an amazing new year full of love, happiness and luck 🍀✨✌️ Stay strong & stay safe. We are all in this together 💪 I love you all so so so much ❤️. Thank you all for reading. How was your New Year’s Eve? Did you stay at home or did you went to a party? Which are your goals or dreams to achieve in 2019? I would love to know. I will speak to you all soon in my next blog post.
