Music of October 🎶💞

Hey lovelies 💕,

I know I’m a bit late with this post but doesn’t matter, right?! I’m always late for everything so yeah that’s me 😂. It’s never too late to share some good music of the month October. Last month some good Spanish music and other pop music have been released 🎶.

Camila Cabello – Cry for me

Camila Cabello is only releasing so many good songs 😍. I can’t wait for her new album “Romance”. I can’t wait for this beautiful album of songs related to love. I know I will like it as I have been loving all her new songs so much. I think this song is amazing and has such a nice beat.

Camila Cabello – Easy

Always thought I was hard to love till you made it seem so easy, seem so easy

What a beautiful song! 💖👌 This is definitely one of my favs of Camila. I love her sweet voice and the lyrics is so relatable. I also find myself being needy and always overthinking. I think that I’m hard to love as well but it’s just that the right person will love you for who you are. Love has to be tender, easy and not complicated.

Harry Styles – Lights up

Harry Styles is back and I can’t also wait for his album too! This song is wonderful and he is so cute too. His voice is just amazing and only gets better and better. Also off topic, I really miss One Direction. I wish they will come back together one day.

Ed Sheeran ft. Camila Cabello & Cardi B – South of the border

This song was released already in Summer but the video not. I really like it. I also find Camila always so sweet and beautiful in the video. I love to hear her singing in Spanish too. This song has such a good vibe and makes me feel like dancing. It’s just very chill and relaxing.

Duncan Laurence – Love don’t hate it

“There are no boundaries, no limits when it comes to love. It’s the purest thing we have in this world and yet so many people, including myself, have to fight for it every single day”

BEAUTIFUL SONG FROM ONE OF MY FAV ARTISTS YASSSS!!! 😍 If you don’t know who Duncan is you have been living under a cave haha because I wrote so much about him. You can read all about him HERE. Long story short, he represented The Netherlands in Eurovision Song Contest this year and won. I’m still so happy that happened and would love to see it live next year. I also have concert tickets to see Duncan alive in Ziggo Dome Amsterdam in March 2020. He is such a cutie and so handsome. He is touring now through Europe. After Arcade this is his new single. I love it so much. It’s so good. It makes me dance the night away and makes me so happy. His voice is perfect. The quote you can read above is from his Instagram. He is bisexual and sexuality is still a somehow taboo in this society. This is a song about accepting yourself and who you choose to love. I love him so much.

Alfred García – Londres

Alfred García already released this song before but finally the video clip came out of this song. Londres is a beautiful song about London and it’s one my favs from Alfred. It’s amazing. I love the vintage vibes ✨. It also make me kinda nostalgic to when I saw the Spanish talent show because he wrote most of his songs of his album in the Academy. I would love to find someone to love like Alfred. I love his creativity, his passion for music and his sensibility. He has struggled with anxiety and depression and I love how open he always is about these topics because it’s so important to share. It can help yourself but also others too.

Melani – Marte (Representing Spain in Eurovision Junior Song Contest)

Melani is 12 years old and represented Spain in The Eurovision Junior Song Contest this year. She sings opera and also pop. It’s such a beautiful song with an important message. It’s about not throwing plastic in the ocean. It’s about climate change and to take care of our planet as we only have one 🌍🌊. Her voice is beautiful. Those high notes are incredible difficult to sing. She sings the song being the ocean itself.

In this video above you can watch Melani singing the song live at Junior Eurovision Song Contest in Poland last Sunday. She did so well and finally after 13 years Spain was back. I’m proud of her third place but I wished she won. I hope Spain will do well next year in the adult Eurovision too.

Melendi – Por encima de la bruma

Melendi is a well known Spanish artist and his songs always have such a beautiful message. I love this song as it’s also very emotional. It’s about women suffering from breath cancer. I wish everyone will get better as it’s a horrible sickness. Right now, I know a little child from 6 years old who is suffering from leucemia. I hope she will get better soon 🙏. This song is about being brave and transforming fear into love. The money from this song are all donations for the Spanish association for cancer.

Selena Gomez – Lose you to love myself

“We’d always go into it blindly
I needed to lose you to find me
This dance, it was killing me softly
I needed to hate you to love me, yeah

I’m so happy Selena is back! 💞 I have always loved her songs so much. This song is so beautiful and really made me tear up. It reminds me of my first love and how much that heartbreak hurt me. I needed to loose him to find myself again. Even though I’m still struggling from time to time with loving myself, low self esteem and also anxiety I love myself more than years ago. That’s already something to be proud of. Sometimes we have to lose someone we love so much to appreciate the love for ourselves more. At the end, our relationship with ourselves is the most important one we can have. This song is just perfect. She sings so beautifully. I love it. The black and white video fits perfect by this song.

Selena Gomez – Look at her now

“She knows she’ll find love (She knows)
Only if she wants it”

Selena is also releasing her new album in January. Everyone is releasing new albums and I’m not ready for it haha because that means YEAHHH buying concert tickets! I don’t have enough money for all of them. This is the other song she released and I love it. This song makes me feel proud to be a woman who is strong and fierce. All women are beautiful. Girl power!

JP Saxe ft. Julia Michaels – If the world was ending

This song is so beautiful. Anything with Julia Michaels is just perfect. Their voices together fit so perfectly. You can feel the emotion through their singing.

OG3NE – Straight to you

The sisters from the girl group OG3NE just released their new album. They represented The Netherlands a few years ago in Eurovision. They also have won The voice of Holland and Dance, Dance, Dance. I love their voices so much. The harmonies are beautiful. They lost their mother a few years ago because of cancer and I admire their strength to carry on and sing. They are such sweethearts and deserve the best. I wish to go to a concert once. I have already shared some songs of the album which were released before which were “First clash lovers” and “Starve”. Below I will share my three favourites of the whole album.

Og3ne – One world away

“We are stronger when we stand together
We are one world away from love
We gotta chance to make a difference
We got a chance to make it right

In this video they performed this song live. I love this song so much. I also love the lyrics so much. It’s definitely one of my favs. They sound so good together. This song makes me feel powerful and it’s just a feel good song.

Og3ne – You

Wow so beautiful. Their voices together are so magical. This song is wonderful. I could listen to it so many times and not get tired of it. I love this sound as it’s calming to listen to.

Og3ne – The end

Dear friend can you help me
Cause I got so much shit I can’t comprehend
I’m on a cliff so high, staring at the depths so low
And I got no where else to go

I’m looking for a shelter
A place I can run to
So don’t you leave me alone
It’s been a thousand times

That’s I’ve been there too, for you
You never had to ask me though
So this is your turn now
To give whatever I need
It’s not the time to shut the door
I’m so afraid of what could be

They sang this song live during the Summer. I think this song is beautiful and I just had to share the lyrics. It’s so relatable, honest and so pure. It’s important that friends are there for each other when we need it the most. Sometimes I find myself that I care way too much about other people than they care about me so then it was time to ask myself if that was a real friendship. I’m happy I only have authentic and people who care about me in my life right now. I don’t need fake friends. They sang so beautifully. I love their individual voices but when they sing together it’s so amazing 👌👏.

Thank you all for reading this post full of amazing music 🎵. What was your favourite song from my list? To which song or artist did you listen to in October? To which new album are you most looking forward to? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,



xoxo Christina

Music of June 🎶

Hola lovelies 💕,

This month was a month full of beautiful music. Some good albums were released and also really great Spanish plus other amazing pop songs were released 💖. I can’t wait to share it all with you.

Taylor Swift – You need to calm down

“Cause shade never made anybody less gay

So oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
You need to calm down, you’re being too loud
And I’m just like oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh (oh)
You need to just stop
Like can you just not step on his gown?
You need to calm down”

One of my fav artists released again a new song! 😍 Taylor is back with some good music. This song is so good, so catchy and I just love the whole vibe! It’s also such a good song with a good meaning behind it. Love is love 🏳️‍🌈. The videoclip is AMAZING too! I can’t wait for her new album “Lover” in August. I’m so excited I just can’t hide it!

Julia Michaels – Inner Monologue part 2

Julia released her second part of her album Inner Monologue. I was so excited to hear it. She is such an amazing singer-songwriter. I love how authentic, real and beautiful she is. I love all the songs. Here are my favourites songs of this album.

Julia Michaels – Falling for boys

”Cause I like, uh
Guys with big lips that treat me like shit
That only want my hips when it’s convenient for them
People I can fix that leave when they’re good again
I keep falling for boys
And mistaking ’em for men
Mistaking ’em (I like ’em)
Mistaking ’em (I like ’em)
I keep mistaking ’em for men”

I love this song so much 😍. I love her vocals and I just agree so much with the lyrics of this song. I used to also fall in love with boys instead of men. I have had so many boys who treated me like shit and didn’t care about me at all 💔 . Boys will treat you like shit but a men will know that you deserve the best and will treat you well. We all deserve to be treated well.

Julia Michaels – Hurt again

Oh, I can see the future, it doesn’t look pretty
I’m lookin’ in your eyes, I’m ready to be hurt again
Feel some type of way whenever you’re with me
I know we’re fighting fire with fire, but I’m
Ready to be hurt, hurt again

Again such an amazing song! I love the melody, the beat and just everything! I can’t wait to sing this song along hopefully when I’m going to one of her concerts in the future.

Julia Michaels – Body

“I just wanna love my body like you love my body
I wanna look in the mirror and tell it that it’s beautiful like you do
I wanna love my body like you love my body
Wanna make it feel like it’s incredible like you do
And I don’t see what you see
But I want to, I want to, oh
Love my body like I love your body”

This song is my favourite of her album because it means so much to me. It made me cry a bit. Unfortunately I can relate to the lyrics so much. It’s just such a beautiful song. Her voice is like an angel who tells me that I’m enough. We are all enough and all our bodies are beautiful. I find it so important that she makes songs about dealing with anxiety, body insecurities and real life stuff. It makes her real and does so much good in this world so we know that we aren’t alone in our struggles and insecurities 💗🙏.

Sofia Ellar – Ahora dime

Sofia Ellar is also one of my fav artists! I love her so much. She’s such a ray of sunshine 😍🌞🎶. Every song is amazing and so lovely. This new single sounds so good. She dances and sings so well. I also love that all the people she loves are on the video such as her lovely cat, her boyfriend Alvaro Soler, her mother and other friends from her band. I LOVE THIS SONG! She’s such a hippie girl like me and that’s also why I can relate so much to her. I love her free spirit and how she always her authentically self. She is also always so lovely with her fans. She calls us all family. I met her and got a picture with her last year. She also always interact with us online. I can’t love her enough.

Miki Núñez – Celébrate

Miki who represented Spain at Eurovision Song Contest this year also released his first single. THIS IS JUST ONLY GOOD VIBES! 🎉💃 I love that he sticks to his own style of music because it’s just so positive, uplifting and you can dance so well on this song too! It’s about celebrating your life. I also love the Volkswagen car so much. My dream is to one day to be able to drive and have such a car and go surfing 🏄‍♀️. I can’t wait for his album in September.

Amaia – Nadie podría hacerlo

Amaia the winner of the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo 2017 released her second single. I love it so much. This is just how she’s. It’s simple, beautiful and so pure. The sound of this song makes me nostalgic and reminds me of all the good times in life. I love how you can see her playing the piano which she studied for and seeing her dancing with her daddy when she was a child. It’s just so cute! 😍

Aitana – Spoiler

Aitana from Operación Triunfo released her first album called “Spoiler.” I really love it so much. She is such an amazing singer. I also love her personality so much. She smiles a lot, is always sweet with her fans, is sensitive and honest. I will post my three favourites songs below. One of my other favourites songs of her is “Con la miel en los labios” which I shared in this blog post.

Aitana – Vas a quedarte

SOOO BEAUTIFUL! This song was released in December 2018 but I think I didn’t share it before on here. It’s included in her album. I love her soft and pure voice. The popular group Morat from Colombia wrote this song with Aitana. The song is about hoping that this time your loved one is going to stay. It’s about having a second chance or a second part with the one you love. I think it’s the best song of Aitana 👌.

Aitana – Stupid

“I can be a girl, not a Stepford
I am not a step for you to step on, I’mma step forward
You can take a step back, playing like a chessboard
Don’t you know the queen protect the king when you’re on check boy?

All these stupid guys like these stupid, stupid girls (Stupid girls)
Telling stupid lies, like we’re stupid, stupid girls (Stupid girls)
Why do all this guys want these stupid, stupid girls? (Stupid girls)
All these stupid guys like these stupid, stupid, stupid girls”

This song is just amazing! So catchy! I really like it so much. I love when Aitana sings English too because it’s so good.

Aitana – Hold

THIS IS SOOOO GOOOD! I definitely think it’s the best English song of Aitana. She sings it with so much power. It has a good melody and you can sing along with it well on the chorus. I LOVE IT 💖.

Alfred García ft. Pavvla – Wonder

“And I wonder if you wonder about me
Do you think of all the things we did when we were free?
And I wonder if you wonder too
And I wonder if you wonder about me”

I know Alfred too from Operación Triunfo. Alfred is such a special artist. I just like this song so much. In his first single “De la tierra hasta marte” he sings about mars. This is his second single which is going to have a third part. His three singles are linked to each other. In this videoclip he is on mars. He is burning his album “1016” in this video. He explained that that means that we are our own worst enemy. He also explained that you have to sacrifise a lot being famous. That’s why you see him on the cross.

Shawn Mendes ft. Camila Cabello – Señorita

AMAZING SONG! I love everything of this song so much. Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello are amazing. Their voices sound so good together. The video is amazing too. I ship them so much hahaha really 😍😂. They are so cute together. I love to see them dancing too. This song has just such a good vibe.

Marta Soto ft. Julia Medina – Entre otros cien

Wow such a beautiful song! Marta Soto is a well known Spanish artist. In this song she is collaborating with Julia which I also know from the Spanish talent show. Their voices are so beautiful together. I really like this song so much because you can see and feel the emotion.

Natalia Lacunza ft. Guitarricadelafuente – Nana Triste

This is such a beautiful and sad song. I also know Natalia from the Spanish talent show. I love to know new young artists. Guitarricadelafuente is a Spanish singer-songwriter. I love to hear a Spanish song together with someone playing a guitar. It just makes the whole atmosphere so good and so magical ✨. Their voices are so beautiful together just wow.

Sebastián Yatra, Daddy Yankee, Natti Natasha ft. Jonas Brothers – Runaway

It’s a nice and catchy song! I’m only sad that The Jonas Brothers not sing so much in this song when they are part of this collaboration. I loved all of them singing. I also loved the little boys dancing which reminded me of BTS.

Marco Borsato, Armin van Buuren, Davina Michelle – Hoe het danst

I LOVEEEE THIS SONG. IT’S SO GOOD! It’s a pop song and also sounds like a dance song. Marco is a popular singer in The Netherlands. Armin van Buuren is a famous DJ in The Netherlands. Davina became famous because of sharing covers on Youtube. Her cover “What about us” from Pink went viral and even Pink said that it was amazing and “That’s better than I will ever sound.” These three voices together are amazing and connect so well 😍👌.

Avicii – TIM

I love that this posthumous album of Avicii was released in June. There are such good songs in it. What I love the most is that all fundings of this album goes to the Tim Bergling foundation which is a organization that helps other people going through mental illneses and suicide prevention. It’s a beautiful way to help others too 💗🙏. I loved the song “Though love” which I also mentioned in this post. I will write down below my other favourites of his album.

Avicii – Heaven

“And I think I just died
I think I just died
Yeah, I think I just died
I think I just died
And went to heaven
And went to heaven

Such a beautiful song and also emotional because of the lyrics. I guess he already knew he would die and couldn’t stand the pain of life anymore. I’m still so sad he couldn’t be saved 😢. I wish we can all heal from our demons as we deserve it. I love the sound of this song so much. They already recorded it some years ago in Madagascar.

Avicii ft. Aloe Blacc – SOS

AMAZING SONG! Every song on this album is just so good, such a bop! I love the sound, instruments and the beat. It makes me so happy 😍😊. I’m so thankful for the music of Tim. He will never ever forgotten because he is a legend and legends never die. His legacy is forever. In this video you can see the beautiful words some fans say of Tim.

Avicii ft. Bonn – Freak

I don’t want to be seen in this shape I’m in
I don’t want you to see how depressed I’ve been, yeah
You were never the high one, never wanted to die young
I don’t want you to see all the scars within

Again such a good song! I keep repeating myself but it’s just the truth. I have this in my head now tudutudutudu – love it. The lyrics is sad though as you can feel how much Tim was struggling.

Avicii ft. Imagine Dragons – Heart upon my sleeve

WOW SOOOO GOOD! Avicii and the Imagine Dragons together is just too good to be true. It sounds amazing! 😍 The violins you hear make this song even better.

Thank you all for reading this long blog post full of beautiful music 🎶 . What were your favourite songs from my list? Which artist do you love? What’s your favourite music style? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕 ,

Duncan Laurence from The Netherlands won Eurovision Song Contest 2019 with the song Arcade!!! 😍💕🎉🎶🇳🇱🎙️

OMGGGG HI LOVELIES 💕,

I’m so excited. I just can’t hide it. I’m about to loose control and I think I like it hahah 😂🎶. I just needed to write this blog post because I feel so emotional and so excited since Saturday night. I felt it already these months when I heard the song Arcade. This blog post will about how I experienced one of the best nights in my life which I will never ever forget. I will write about the victory of The Netherlands winning Eurovision Song Contest 2019 after 44 years. I will also share more about who Duncan is as a person and artist.

I’m such a eurofan and I’ve always been. I love Eurovision Song Contest so much. It’s my favourite music event of the year. I’m always looking forward to it. I’m always most looking forward to the songs of The Netherlands and Spain. I also love to hear the songs of other countries. I’m into pop, indie, latin music, some house music, classic and choir music which I used to sing in my choir and I just love music so much. It makes me the happiest person on earth 🌎😍. Going to a concert and seeing your favourite artist live is just the best thing ever. Meeting them in person and talking with them is even better. Getting a picture with them is just the best too.

I get inspired by many artists and what I find the most important thing of an artist is that they are authentic, stay true to themselves and can be vulnerable. So, the first time I heard that Duncan Laurence was going to represent The Netherlands this year I was like who?! Who is that? Normally popular and famous artists of The Netherlands go to Eurovision. Last year Waylon went and in 2014 The Common Linnets went which were Ilse DeLange together with Waylon. They song a beautiful song which ended at the second place. The song was a lovely country song called “Calm after the storm.”

The Common Linnets – Calm after the storm (Eurovision Song Contest 2014)

So first in January they said that Duncan Laurence was going to represent The Netherlands. I saw some videos of him singing in The Voice of Holland on Youtube and was already impressed by his beautiful voice. He reached the semi-finals. He had as coach Ilse DeLange.

Duncan Laurence – Sing (The blind auditions of The Voice of Holland of 2014)

Then I also listened to the video below which is especially made as an assignment for the Rock Academy. After singing in the Voice of Holland he went to the Rock Pop Academy in Tilburg. He made his own version of the song “Stolen Dance” by Milky Chance. It’s one of my favourite songs and hearing it with Duncan’s voice gave me goosebumps and makes me cry every time 😭. His voice is so pure and so beautiful. I could listen all day and all night to it 😍🎶

Another video I found on Youtube of a song he wrote called “Come back Home”

He is such an amazing singer-songwriter. I’m really so impressed. He went through a hard time during his school years because he got bullied. He got bullied because of being different. He wore braces, had glasses and a different body size. He found his passion of music through this experience. He could be himself when he was making music at home and also in the Rock Pop Academy in Tilburg. Music was his safe place where he could be his self. He also told in some interviews how he was covered in his insecurities. He was afraid to be open and vulnerable.

Writing his song Arcade in The Rock Pop Academy in Tilburg

He also said that it is important to not build a wall. It reminds myself of my own experience with bullying. I build a wall and I still haven’t break it fully like it still influences me as a person when someone is rude to me. I think often when I hear a stranger laughing that it’s about me. I still have to break this wall just like Duncan did. The most beautiful words of him during an interview in Tel Aviv in Israel where these ones:

“Don’t build a wall. Don’t focus on the ones who don’t like you, stick to the ones who like you and love you and inpire you. I tried to change myself and focused too much on the ones who didn’t like me.”

I so agree with what he said because it’s just so true. Whenever I’m with my family or good friends I feel happy because they love me for who I’m and accept me. Those are the people who you need in life and not the toxic ones. Being bullied isn’t our fault. Most of the time the bullies are insecure themselves. I wrote about my experience of bullying in this blog post. He also said that with his music he wants to be the voice for those who have a soul which is damaged by others. He is going to tell their stories and let us see that we aren’t alone. He such a bubbly, beautiful and humble pereson that I tear up 😍😭

Ilse DeLange was his coach in The Voice of Holland and always had contact with Duncan after he participated in this talentshow. Two years ago he was writing the song “Arcade”. He put that song together with other songs in a Dropbox file. Ilse heard this song and was impressed. A few months ago before Eurovision began she called him on a Sunday morning and asked him if he wanted to represent The Netherlands this year. The whole delegation of The Netherlands was impressed by this song. Of course he said YEAHHHH and then the adventure began. I don’t want to repeat myself because I already told a lot about this song in other posts like in this post. There I sang my own cover of Arcade 🎶.

“‘Arcade’ is about a lost love. And hoping for that love to return. But it doesn’t. All the emotion, rawness, bitterness, angriness or happiness or hope that comes within that. That’s what I tried to capture in ‘Arcade’. It is indeed a story about myself, about a love that I once lost when I was younger.”

Duncan lost someone very special in his life. This woman only turned 40 years old. She was hoping that her love came back but he didn’t. She stayed in love with her loved one until she died. Duncan wrote this song about that story. The song, lyrics, melody everything describes these real feelings and emotions. It’s so honest and vulnerable just WOW. He is naked in the clip and you can see his butt haha which is very beautiful indeed.

Duncan Laurence – Arcade (Official Music Video for Eurovision Song Contest 2019 in Israel)

“We tried to capture the vulnerability of a human being. The most vulnerable you can be is naked. Being completely nude leaves you all vulnerable in that massive water world, with the surface representing the hope and everything you long for. The struggle, the fight that comes with it to get there. That is what we try to capture.”

Since I listened to this I have had winner vibes. I knew this song could win because it’s the best song I’ve heard. I get so emotional and have goosebumps all the time I listen to this song. I’m even thinking now to get a tattoo with something of the lyrics of this song. My favourite sentence is: “Loving you is a loosing game.” I’m afraid of needles so don’t know if I will get a tattoo but this just sticks in my head. Since he released his song he was number one in the bookmakers and that didn’t change.

I watched everything from Eurovision such as all his interviews which were so nice to see. I watched the first semi-final of Eurovision last week even though he didn’t had to sing. He was singing in the second femi-final which was last thursday on the 16th of May. It was incredible and I had to cry so much. My father only watched that song with me because he doesn’t like Eurovision. I always watch it with my mother. Of course he passed through the finals which was last Saturday the 18th of May. I was so happy when they said The Netherlands as second name to pass. Normally they say it almost at the end.

Duncan performing his song Arcade during the second semi-final of Eurovision Song Contest 2019
Singing Arcade during the second semi-final

He sings Arcade every time so beautiful and every time it’s different. I like that so much because you can feel the emotion. He really feels it at that moment and sings it from his heart. During the final he had to sing at the 12th place and it was even better and more beautiful than in the semi-finals. It’s just incredible how good and beautiful he sings. I feel his emotion all the time when he sings it 💕. We all feel it. We can all relate to this story.

THE FINAL PERFORMANCE!!!!
The Netherlands – Live performance of Arcade from Duncan Laurence

I was so nervous and anxious this whole week too and couldn’t sleep well. It even felt like I had to sing hahah instead of Duncan who always stayed calm. I was just so excited of thinking that he could win 😂. During the jury votes I was getting so nervous. I was happy when we got 12 points from Portugal, Sweden, France, Israel, Lithuania and Latvia. Thank you so much! Sweden won the jury votes but everyting could change during the televotes. They begin with the last country and told every country how much televotes it got. The Netherlands got 261 which made them first. I was already so excited but there was only one country left to tell them their points which was Sweden. If they got more points than The Netherlands they would have won. Duncan was so nervous and me too. We all were. At the end they said 93 points for Sweden.

THE NETHERLANDS WON YEAHHH!!!

I began to scream and cry so hard. This was definitely one of the best nights in my life. I couldn’t sleep well that night. I had also stomach cramps but I already have them these months so it’s not only because of Eurovision I guess. My father was sleeping so I didn’t scream that hard hahah 😂. He doesn’t understand all my emotion and happiness around it. It’s just incredible that an unkown artist won with such a beautiful song. I’m also a highly sensitive person so everything makes me feel so much. I feel every emotion deep. My country, The Netherlands won after 44 years! 😍🇳🇱🎶🎉🎙️ I still can’t believe we are going to organise Eurovision next year. My dream is seeing it live so I hope I can get tickets. My dream was also to see The Netherlands or Spain win so I’m so happy and so proud! 💪

His winner’s performance was so emotional too. Hearing the crowd singing the song is just the best feeling ever. He also was looking up to the sky because he sings this song to the one he lost.

Duncan wrote history. Everyone knows him now. His song is number one in many iTunes charts. I will never get tired of this beautiful song or of him. I love him so much 💗. I’m so grateful to have a new artist in my life who I admire so much. He is already writing more songs so I can’t wait to hear them. I also would love to see him live. All his concerts are sold out now. His voice makes me crack my soul open and make me feel so many feelings. I have to admit that this song also reminds me of my break up with my first love 💔 I kept hoping after I lost him that he would come back but until today he didn’t. Maybe that’s why I get so emotional with this song. I can still feel how my heart broke but I also feel the hope in this song. There will be new people to love and experiences to live.

Duncan kissing the trophy of Eurovision. He really deserved to win!
“This is for dreaming big, this is to music first, always!” – Duncan Laurence

Thank you Duncan for being real and from growing from a wallflower to a beautiful artist who stand for things. He is bisexual and open about it. He told about his bullying experience. He is honest. He is vulnerable. I’m so thankful that you are real in this sometimes fake and dark world. Thank for coming in our lives. You give me hope in my life to reach my dreams 🌠✨. Thank you for making us happy and feel inspired. You are one of my fav artists now. I will never stop loving you 🎶. Loving you is a winning game! 😍✨ i love u forever cutieeee 💗

In Tel Aviv, Israel. He such a cutie just look at him. I get so angry that kids bullied him because he is such a beatiful person inside & out.
Duncan singing live an acoustic version of Arcade on De Wereld Draait Door before he went to Israel

Life wouldn’t be the same without music. It makes us feel things, we feel less alone and it will never leave us. I will also keep singing as I love to sing. I don’t know if being famous is something for me but joining a choir again or having singing classes would be amazing. I would love to learn guitar or piano too one day. I miss that so much to be honest 😭. With singing I can release emotions and it makes me so happy 😍

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I hope you find this post as inspiring as I found it to write it. What do you think of the song Arcade and the story behind it? Did you watch Eurovision? Do you also tear up with beautiful songs? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

Loving you is a loosing game 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕,

It’s time again for a singing cover 🎶. I once shared a cover from the song Supermarket flower by Ed Sheeran in this post. I hope you all like this cover I made a few days ago. As a eurofan of Eurovision Song Contest I wanted to make a cover of Arcade from Duncan Laurence who will represent The Netherlands in Eurovision this year 💗🎶🇳🇱 .

You can listen to my cover here:

Cover Arcade – @itsduncanlaurence 💗🎶🇳🇱 . I spent all of the love I've saved We were always a losing game Small-town boy in a big arcade I got addicted to a losing game Ooh, ooh All I know, all I know Loving you is a losing game @itsduncanlaurence will represent The Netherlands with this beautiful song called Arcade in Eurovision Song Contest this year. Thursday is the second semi final and I hope that Duncan will go to the finals and of course win Eurovision! Every time I listen to this song I get emotional and cry. It makes me feel so much. All the feels. It's a beautiful song and has a beautiful melody which I can't get out of my mind. The lyrics is so good too. Duncan is an amazing singer songwriter. I love him because he is so down to earth, bubbly and sensitive 💕 He is such a cutie. Everything about this song and about him is WOW. I can imagine how many people can relate to this song and get emotional when they listen to it. The videoclip was made in the water. His inspiration came from a loved one that passed away at an early age. She was hoping for her loved one to come back but he didn't. Arcade is a story about the search for the love of your life. It’s about the hope to reach something that seems unreachable. The water surface in the video represents the hope. The nude reflects the vulnerability and perhaps the rebirth from the hope. We all can relate to this story in our own lives too like when a dream can't be reached, when someone is dying or when you heart is broken and you are still longing for that person to come back. I really do hope The Netherlands wins after 44 years with this unbelievable beautiful song which gives me goosebumps every time I listen to it. If a song can make you feel so much emotion and if the singer also brings that emotion to the audience then for me it's definitely a winner 🏆😍 I really want to be able to see The Netherlands and also Spain win Eurovision Song Contest for once in my life. Good luck Duncan! Whole Europe already loves you as you are still number one in the bookmakers. I guess that's already a good sign. I can't wait for Thursday and Saturday! 🎉🇳🇱 Let's gooo and win yeahhh! 💗💗💗💗💗💗

Dutch tulip fields photo diary🌷📷 and 300 followers! 🎉💗

Hey lovelies 💕,

Today I want to show some beautiful pictures which I took with my mother last Sunday which was on Easter. Today’s blog post is a photo diary of the beautiful Dutch tulip fields 🌷. Before I continue to talk about it more and show you the pictures, I will tell you something else.

I finally reached more than 300 followers! 🎉 I’m so damn happy and proud of it! 😍💕🎈🎂🎁 It means so much to me that my blog is growing and that more and more people are willing to follow me, read my posts and like them. The only strange thing is that I didn’t receive a notification of this on my WordPress. Normally you get a message. Maybe, this sometimes doesn’t work or stops. Did anyone else also experience this? I always love to get that haha because it makes me feel even more excited. Thank you SO much from the bottom of my heart for all your love, support and happiness. I love blogging and will never stop blogging. We are one big and amazing family. I love you all SO much 💗💗💗

Okay, enough love 😂 Let’s be serious right now again. I can never be really serious so never mind. I alwaya prefer Spain over The Netherlands but there are some things which I love in Holland and which you can’t find in Spain. One of those things are the beautiful Dutch tulip fields I visited last week. The Netherlands is famous for the flowers especially the tulips. The best time to see them is from mid March to mid May. It starts with crocus season in March, which is followed by daffodils and hyacinths. Finally the tulips show their gorgeous colors, this is from mid April through the first week of May. You can also go to the Keukenhof which is unique tulip park with 7 million of tulips to see. I went there some times and I loved it. I want to go again because it’s so beautiful. The only bad thing is that it can be crowded with all the tourists taking pictures.

So on the First Easter Day I enjoyed a beautiful bike ride with my mother through the park and went to Cruquius which is so near to my house. We went to see the beautiful tulip fields. There was nobody so we could enjoy it to the fullest. First we were afraid to pass the meadow because there was water on the side haha but nothing happened 😂 We didn’t end up in the dike. I loved it so much. I didn’t want to leave anymore. I could sleep there surrounded by the tulips lol. Cray cray. It’s my happy place definitely. Flowers especially tulips are one of my favourite things in life and the most beautiful fields of the world are definitely in Holland. I know Keukenhof is awesome too but to enjoy these fields for free and all alone is just a wonderful experience that everyone has to see. The Netherlands in Spring time is the best time to visit because it’s also so sunny 🌞. It feels like Spain 🇪🇸 except that it was raining a lot there that time 🤣

This is my photo diary 📷. I almost didn’t change the pictures because they are perfect the way they are. I used the app StoryApp for the designs. I really like it and I love to make collages and do something different to show you it. I hope you all enjoy them! 💗

Thank you all for reading this blog post. Did you like my photo diary? Do you love flowers as much as I do? Which flower is your favourite? 🌸🌼🌻🌹🌷💐 Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 😘,

xoxo Christina

Winter Wonderland – Photo Diary 📷❄️️💕☃️

Hey lovelies 💕,

My last blog post was a long blog post where I shared my favourite things of life from A to Z. I thought about writing a short blog post today. I want to share my first photo diary. I took this pictures in the park last Tuesday when it was snowing in The Netherlands. I took them with my mobile phone and edited them a bit but not too much. I like natural pictures. I hope you are going to like this pictures. I love photography and I want to share more of it on my blog.

Summer is my favourite season but I like snow even though I don’t like the cold haha 😂. I love to hear the sound of crispy snow when you are walking. I love the snow landscape. It’s so beautiful. It feels like magic ✨ It just makes me so happy.

This is the view from my room – so beautifuuuul 😍✨

This is what we see when I open the door from my garden ❄️

The beautiful park covered in snow 🌨️

My lovely mother and I enjoying the snow 💕

My mother also love the swing and looks so cute 💖

We enjoyed a delicious hot chocolate & a tea in the restaurant in the park ☕🍵

I didn’t made this snowman but he looks so cute ⛄

Enjoying a delicious Dutch fondue with my family at home 🍴

I had to include this picture as I had a lovely dinner at home with my parents on Wednesday. We had a Dutch fondue with meat, delicious potatoes and fruits. It’s a typical tradition they do in The Netherlands and we always do it to celebrate something. This time we just did it to enjoy it. It was so yummy! 😍😘🍴

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I had to share these beautiful pictures with you all. I hope you liked them. Which picture was your favourite? Do you love snow? Do you also find a snow landscape so beautiful? Let me know in the comments. I will speak to you all soon in my next blog post.

Singing cover: Supermarket Flowers by Ed Sheeran 🎶💕🎤

Hey lovely bloggers 💕,

Thank you all so much for your lovely comments in my last blog post. I’m so happy you all like my blog so much. I’m so happy with the endless support I get from you all. It really means the world to me 😍 I will keep continue creating and writing content. I will also try to write about new things. To celebrate my 1 year of blogging I will share in this blog post my first singing cover. In another blog post in the future I will tell you more about my love for singing and more covers. I even am thinking of making a Youtube channel to share there covers aswell as on my blog but I’m a bit nervous about that. I don’t know if I will do that. I’m not a professional singer. I just love singing so much. I just still feel awkward recording me videos hahah 😂.

I sing all my life. I sang in a choir for 11 years in The Netherlands and really loved it. Singing is really one of my biggest passions. Singing is so calming and music just makes me so happy. Music is life ❤. In this blog post I will share a cover of “Supermarket flowers” by Ed Sheeran. I already shared the cover on my Instagram for my blog. The lyrics is so beautiful. I especially love the sentence: “A heart that’s broke is a heart that’s been loved.”

This is such a beautiful and emotional song and one of my favourites of Ed Sheeran. I’m a fan of Ed Sheeran for so many years and I saw him singing live one day when he came as surprise act at the concert of Passenger. I can’t wait to go to a concert of him alone too. This song is about his grandmother who passed away. This song is for all the people who have lost someone. Your loved one is an angel and will live forever in your heart. I’m here for you all 🙏💕🌸

You can watch my cover here below:

Thank you all for reading. I like to share new things on my blog. Did you like my cover? Would you want that I share more singing covers on my blog/youtube? Let me know 😄 I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love,

xoxo Christina

I bought the perfect fuchsia dress for the wedding of my brother in August 👗😍💞👌

Hey lovelies 💞,

In this blog post I want to share something really special. I already shared on this blog post My brother is getting married! 💑 that my brother Rafael is going to a marry his Spanish girlfriend Veronica. The wedding will be in Fuensaldaña in Spain on the 11th of August. Fuensaldaña is a little village near to my home city Valladolid. I’m so excited for this wedding. Last week I went shopping with my mother and I finally bought the dress for my brother’s wedding.

Me and my mother went to a street which is called Manteria in Valladolid. I never went to this street before. This street has a lot of beautiful fashion boutiques and shops full of wedding dresses. I didn’t like some shops and when I finally went to the shop “Moda Wappa” I was in heaven. I love this shop so much ❤ These dresses were not that expensive like I saw in other shops dresses for €200 or even €300 or even more. In “Moda Wappa” I saw beautiful dresses around €100. I went to the dressroom and I tried many dresses, some with flowers and some not. The most beautiful dress I tried was the dress I bought. First, it was a bit difficult to try but you have to know how to do it hahaha 😂

I bought the beautiful fuchsia dress. I was in love with the first second I tried this beautiful dress on. I love this colour fuchsia so much. This dress is simple with flowers & elegant. This dress perfectly match my personality and is perfect for the Summer time in Spain! 💜🌞 I never bought such a beautiful dress before ❤ This dress was €110 which isn’t even a lot because many of these dresses are way more expensive. I still have to buy some shoes that fits this dress. I don’t want to wear high heels because I really don’t like these shoes. My ex boyfriend always wanted that I wore high heels and even bought me some but now I’m growing into a woman who decide their choices. I feel more comfortable wearing shoes with maybe a little of heel so that I can able to dance and walk normally.

30226601_10209258443537877_7600381432740970496_o

As soon as I buy these shoes I will go again to the shop “Moda Wappa” because they have to do some adjustments with this dress such as to make it a bit shorter. Now, this dress is a bit too long. This dress is even more beautiful in real life hahah! I never loved a dress so much. This will be my favourite dress which I’ever bought. Let me know what you think of this fuchsia dress 😊 I will talk to you all in my next blog post.

Much love,

xoxo Christina

Holy Week in Valladolid & Happy Easter to you all! 🐰💐

Hey lovely bloggers 💞,

I want to thank you all for the lovely comments on my last blog post. I really feel so loved by this beautiful blogging community. I love you all so much ❤ Thank you for always being there for me. In the end, everything was well. I always think that somebody is angry at me when they talk a bit loud. I know my family is sometimes just worried about me but sometimes it makes me feel overwhelmed. It’s my life after all. It’s just that I’m really sensitive for these situations. I have to learn to let it all go. Today, I want to talk about the Holy Week in Valladolid: Semana Santa. This week is really so beautiful.

ssanta-valladolid-2018

I was sick last week with gastroenteritis. I felt really so bad so I couldn’t see so much of the Holy Week in Valladolid but I’m glad that I still could enjoy some beautiful processions this week. The Holy Week is really an important week in Spain. The most important cities with the most beautiful processions are Valladolid and Sevilla. You can also see these processions on Spanish television. During this week there are many processions in the city of Valladolid from different brotherhoods. They are carrying religious statues, pray and play music. It’s such a beautiful artwork. On Tuesday 27 March, I went to the Plaza Mayor of Valladolid with my mother and I bought tickets to see the Passion Procession on Good Friday. I also entered some churches and saw the artwork. It was a really good day of sunshine and it was the first Spring day! 🌞 I loved the 20 degrees and I love to wear a flower headband hihi I’m a hippie girl forever ✌🌻. In the evening I was about to go to see a procession with my parents but I felt a bit dizzy and nauseous because of being sick for a week so I went home. My mother went alone to see some other processions in the city.

 

On Wednesday 28 March, I felt better and I was so excited to see some beautiful procession in the evening with my mother and my lovely friend Maria. In the evening I went to the city centre where I saw a beautiful procession. This was the first procession which I saw which is named “La cofradia de las siete palabras”. In this procession they carried “Santisimo Cristo de las Mercedes”. My good friend Javi was playing in the music band. I loved how everybody is in silence and watching in awe these processions. This procession took place at 23.00 o’clock in the evening and at 00.00 o’clock we went to another procession near to our house. It was a bit crowdy which made me feel a bit anxious but I could cope with it hahah xD. This procession was named “Procesión de la piedad”. It was a long one where they carried three religious statues: “Cristo de la humildad”, “Cristo de la cruz a María” & “La quinta angustia.” I loved the Maria one. I also loved that they played the Spanish hymn. Viva España, olé! ❤

 

These are pictures from the first procession which I saw on wednesday 28th of March with my mother and my friend Maria. This was the “Cofradia de las siete palabras” where they carried the religious statue Santisimo Cristo de las Mercedes.” On the right picture you can see the music band playing. My friend Javi is playing and you can see him on the left.

 

These are pictures from the second procession which I saw on wednesday 28th of March with my mother and my friend Maria. This was the “Procesión de la piedad.” It was such a long one where they carried three religious statues: “Cristo de la humildad”, “Cristo de la cruz a María” & “La quinta angustia.”

This is a video of Youtube where you can see the proncession “Procesión de la piedad.”

On Good Friday, the 30th of March we had tickets to see the Passion Procession at the Plaza Mayor at 19.30 until 22.30. We had seats. It was €10. I was about to see it with my parents and my friend Maria. This is the most important procession during the whole Holy Week. You can see all the 20 brotherhoods together with 33 religious statues in Valladolid. Unfortunately, it was canceled because of the rain. I also checked the weather and it was going to rain at this time. I was really sad about it. It was so cold, rainy and there was so much wind. I can really understand that they canceled it because most of these 33 pasos (religious statues) date from the 16th and the 17th centuries. Rain would destroy this beautiful artwork. Hopefully, I will enjoy it next year. Last year it was my first time experiencing Semana Santa in Valladolid and I was so in awe and I still am. It’s so beautiful and I’m glad I could enjoy some beautiful procession this week. It’s a beautiful museum outside! 💞

This is a video which I found on Youtube from the Passion Procession on Good Friday last year. You can see me at minute 0:05 – 0:09. I’m sitting almost on the last stage on the right. I’m wearing a pink shirt and have a pink flower headband. Next to me is sitting my friend with a blue shirt and my mother. All the 20 brotherhoods are carrying 33 religious statues which date from the 16th and 17th centuries. This is an impression of how I experienced this beautiful and most important procession of Holy Week ❤

The Passion Procession was canceled on Good Friday so my parents, my friend Maria and I went to a bar near to our house. I enjoyed chocolate with churros. This is typical Spanish. Has anyone tried this? It’s really delicious. I also enjoyed a camille tea which is called manzanilla in Spanish. This was the perfect time to drink something warm because of the rain and cold weather. Afterwards, I went to some churches with my mother and my friend Maria. You could see the religious statues in the churches. We went to see the artwork in the churches Las Angustias & La Vera Cruz. My mother went home and I was walking a lot of with my friend. In the evening I ate a delicious slice of pizza in a bar. We also went to a bar to meet up with a friend who was with some polish girls. They are doing an Erasmus in Valladolid. It was really nice to talk with them. I love to meet international people so much and be in contact with many different cultures. At 23.00 o’clock we went home.

 

On Good Friday I was walking with my friend Maria to Plaza Zorilla where there is a beautiful fountain. I also enjoyed chocolate with churros with my family and my friend & pizza as dinner with my friend Maria mmmmm ❤ I’m loving it!

 

On Good Friday we visited the churches Las Angustias & La Vera Cruz and saw some beautiful religious artwork.

Yesterday night my mother was going to the Easter Vigil in the cathedral of Valladolid. I have never been to the Cathedral in Valladolid. It’s a service held in traditional Christian churches as the first official celebration of the Resurrection of Jesus. The light up a fire, pray and sing. I used to be in the choir in The Netherlands and sing during this evening. Today there were again some processions. They were in the morning hahah so I didn’t go but my mother went. They were letting some white pigeons fly in the city and all people wear white clothes. It’s the sign of the Resurrection of Jesus.

I’m encouraging anybody who is going to Spain to visit the Holy Week. The most important cities are Sevilla and Valladolid. The Holy Week in Valladolid is full of art, music and religion combined. In Valladolid the people are more in silence where in Sevilla the people are singing on the streets. I think you experience it on a different level but it’s beautiful everywhere.

I wish you all a happy Easter! 😍 May love, light and happiness find your way. Enjoy it a lot with your family and friends. In The Netherlands it’s typical to eat chocolate Easter eggs. I really liked to eat that delicious chocolate. You can also find it in the shops in Spain right now. What are your traditions during Holy Week/Easter? ❤ I would love to know about it.

may-all-the-joys-2

Love you all so much 💞,

Operación Triunfo concert: 16 March 2018 & post concert depression 🎶🎤💜

Hey lovelies 😍,

Today I’m going to share with you all my experience of the concert of Operación Triunfo in Palacio Vista Alegre in Madrid where I went last Friday with my lovely friend Maria. Operación Triunfo is a Spanish talentshow like X Factor, The voice, Idols. I love these singing contests so much because I love singing. I always wanted to enter too but I think it’s not my thing. I would be too anxious. I prefer to sing for fun. Being famous wouldn’t be my thing too. I prefer to have a private life than have million gossips about me written.

Operación Triunfo was on television from October till the beginning of February. There were 16 participants who were living in an singing academy where they could not have contact with anyone outside the academy. They had a special phone where they could share pictures on Instagram but couldn’t see the likes or comments. Once in a while they had a call with their family and at the end they could leave for Christmas for like two days. Their families also visited the academy once when there were only 5 finalists left. Every week there was a live show and there would be two nominations where one would leave the academy. Every week during the liveshow the public had to choose which one they prefer to stay for one week more in the academy.

These are the 16 participants of Operación Triunfo

The public Spanish television RTVE was really happy about the boom of Operación Triunfo. For many years it wasn’t on television anymore and now it came back. It was a huge success. Therefore, they had chosen the representants of Spain for Eurovision from Operación Triunfo. This was a special liveshow. I was so happy that Tu canción (written by Raúl Gomez) was chosen. Amaia & Alfred are going to represent Spain with this beautiful song. Amaia & Alfred together with Aitana are my favourite singers from this talentshow. Amaia & Alfred sang together the song City of stars during the third liveshow. Right in that moment they felt in love with each other. It’s such a beautiful story. Now, they are going together to Eurovision. Tu canción is a beautiful song too. It’s incredible how much I feel every time I hear this song. The melody is beyond beautiful and the words really mean something. I cry all the time when I hear this song. They sing the sentence “I feel like I’m dancing for the first time.” Love is beautiful and doesn’t need a language. Amaia and Alfred are pure magic and love. They are artists ❤

City of stars – Amaia & Alfred ❤

They make me wanna believe again in love. Love is the reason why we are living. Love doesn’t know any borders. Love is just the best thing ever and it’s even more beautiful when two people meet each other through music ❤ Just like Amaia and Alfred sing and with their eye contact and smiles, they tell us everything. I loved the kiss at the end. I don’t care how well this song will do in Eurovision because I know Europe will love them. They are already winners for me and you have my heart. I will forever be fan of Amaia and Alfred because of your emotion and passion for music. I love you till infinity and beyond ❤

This is the videoclip of Tu canción from Amaia & Alfred who will represent Spain in Eurovision in Portugal this year. The videoclip is so damn beautiful 😍 It demonstrates their love story 💕 They are also flying like Peter Pan at the end. Music who makes me feel something is for me the best music ever 😍

The winner of Operación Triunfo was chosen in the beginning of February during the final liveshow and was Amaia. Amaia is the deserved winner of Operación Triunfo 2017. She studies music & piano since she was little. Every time I hear her singing, I’m in love ❤ She is just full of emotion. I love how she is always so authentic, honest and real. I hope she will stay this way. She has such great values and such a lovely family. I really hope to meet you one day and get the chance to speak to you, give you a letter and take a picture with you. She means so much to me. I love you forever and I wish you all the best my darling ❤ I can’t wait to give you a hug one day.

I love this song from Florence and the Machine so much. This is my favourite song. Amaia sang Shake it out during the 9th liveshow of Operación Triunfo. It was definitely her best perfomance ever! ❤

Now, Operación Triunfo is doing a concert tour through whole Spain. The 16 singers are going to perform in many different cities in Spain. The first concert was on the third of March in Palau St. Jordi in Barcelona. I’m in love with all the 16 beautiful participants. They are all so talented. It’s not only the talent which made us fell in love with them. It’s their values, their honesty and sensitive hearts too. Raoul & Agoney kissed each other during the concert of Barcelona and said the sentence: “Love, Liberty and Visibility.” Marina showed on Spanish television that love is love and kissed her boyfriend which is transgender. Aitana showed that you can be friends with a boy named Cepeda. Real friendship exists. Alfred showed us that you don’t have to be ashamed of having a mental illness. He has anxiety and depression. He also donates money and is always thinking about making this world a better place to live in. Together with Amaia they showed us that real love exists and that’s the most beautiful thing in the world. Amaia showed us that shaving is a beauty standard and that women don’t have to shave just to look beautiful. Amaia also showed us that we should all fight for feminism. Roi showed us that the best thing in life is to laugh and make jokes. Everything is better with good humor. They learned us so many important lessons which I’m forever thankful of.

Last Friday (16-03-2018), I went to the concert of Operación Triunfo in Palacio Vista Alegre with my spanish friend Maria. It was awesome! It was definitely one of the best nights in my life ❤ It was such an unforgettable night. I have never seen so many police men, cars and even dogs as security. It always makes me a bit anxious but it’s better to have enough security and be safe. They sang 37 songs from the liveshows. They sang some songs all together, some duos and some alone.

My favourite songs were:

  • Shake it out – Amaia
  • Miedo – Amaia
  • Chandelier – Aitana
  • Issues – Aitana
  • Con las ganas – Amaia & Aitana
  • No puedo vivir sin ti – Aitana & Cepeda
  • Shape of you – Amaia & Roi
  • La bikina – Ana
  • Lo malo – Aitana & Ana
  • City stars – Amaia & Alfred
  • Tu canción – Amaia & Alfred
  • Que nos sigan las luces – Alfred
  • A quién le importa – All together
  • Camina – All together
  • La revolución sexual – All together

Miedo – Amaia during the concert of Madrid ❤

Chandelier – Aitana during the concert of Madrid ❤

Shape of you – Amaia & Roi during the concert of Madrid ❤

Tu canción – Amaia & Alfred during the concert in Madrid. I loved the kiss. They are so cute together ❤

Camina – All together ❤ They have all made this song which is the hymn of Operación Triunfo 2017

We had such good seats: just in front of the stage. There was one moment in the middle that I felt a bit anxious to have a panick attack but fortunately that feeling went away fast. The concert began at 21.30 till 00.00. There were 15.000 people omg!!! We took a taxi from the hotel to the Palacio Vista Alegre because otherwise we would have been too late. There was a big row to enter but we skipped it half way hahha xD. I love the organisation more in The Netherlands than in Spain. It was kinda chaotic. I also felt sometimes that the girls who were sitting near to us were laughing about us. It wasn’t true at all but my anxiety makes me always think about those stupid things…. I also always use ear plugs for concerts or parties because otherwise I will hear a noise in my ear or my ears ringing which cause me anxiety. Sometimes I feel ashamed for wearing it but nobody sees it because I have long hair. Besides, my health is more important than other people’s opinions. During a concert nobody is judging you. They are just enjoying the music.

I have never went to a concert with so many artists. Those 16 participants from Operación Triunfo are just so awesome! ❤ They are real artists and have so many beautiful values and beautiful voices. It was a concert full of magic & love <3. Raoul & Agoney also kissed each other during the concert after they sang together Manos vacias. Love is love <3. Amaia & Alfred also kissed each other too after singing Tu canción. It was such a beautiful concert ❤ Thank you all for an unforgettable night. I cried, 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 ❤❤❤

Pictures which I have made during the concert

One of my favourite moments during the concert was when Alfred was singing the song “Que nos sigan las luces”. I love his voice, his beautiful values and how he can light up this whole world. He sang this song which means that the lights have to follow us. I loved that moment so much. Seeing all those beautiful lights and hearing this song was so damn beautiful. I felt so happy and alive. You are an amazing artist. I love Alfred so much ❤ They ended the concert singing all together la revolución sexual which means sexual revolution and means that love has no boundaries. Love is love. They ended with some awesome confetti in the air

Que nos sigan las luces – Alfred during the concert in Madrid. Beautiful lights and a beautiful song sang by a beautiful boy ❤

I made this collage of pictures which I made during the concert. On the picture on the left you can see “Tu canción – Amaia & Alfred”. I bought two shirts online for the concert. I lend my friend Maria a shirt with the text: “Ah I don’t know, buah what a horror”. Amaia always said that during the contest hahah. My shirt has a picture of Amaia & Alfred with the text “I feel like I’m dancing for the first time.” That’s what they sing in the song Tu canción. On the picture on the right you can see them all together singing “Camina”. The picture right below is where they sing all together “Revolución Sexual”.

After the concert we went to the hotel in Madrid which was just a half hour away. We got a bit lost but fortunately we could find the hotel and were there at 1.00 o’clock. It wasn’t that late but we stayed up until 3 o’clock watching all the pictures & videos made of the concert. We felt so happy, emotional and just all emotions together. On Saturday evening we went home to Valladolid. Since that day I feel a bit empty, lost and sad. I guess it’s also because I have a cold and my period together. I will never ever forget this concert. I want to relive it again. They are going to Valladolid in June so maybe I will go to this concert too with Maria. I have “post concert depression” which is the feeling you get the day after you went to a really fantastic concert.

Symptoms include:

1. The desire to relive the concert.
2. Thoughts similar to “The band were right here!” or “I’m never going to see them again”
3. Emotional pain when listening to the band’s music.” (Source: Urban Dictionary)

The best remedy to cure this is to buy again concert tickets hahah. I love going to concerts so much. I’m so happy that even though I suffer from anxiety I can go to concerts where they are millions of people. Never stop doing the things you love to do. I love going to concerts and anxiety will not make me stop going. I can’t wait to see you all again!!! ❤ I love you all so so so much! ❤

For a few seconds me and my lovely friend Maria are famous hahah!!! We were on Spanish television: news of RTVE. Hahaha you can see us in this video. I’m the one with the flower headband and next to me you can see my friend Maria.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I think this is my longest blog post ever so I’m sorry if it’s too long but I just enjoy talking about Operación Triunfo because it makes me so happy and music is just the best thing in life. Music unites people ❤ Only good vibes! In my next blog post I will write a travel post with some beautiful pictures of my trip to Madrid. Madrid is a beautiful city. I encourage anyone to go to this beautiful city one day! 😄
