May favourites 🎉🎶🌸🌞

Hola lovelies 💕,

May was a great month where I spend much time with my family and also with my friends. In this post I’m going to tell you about my favourites in May such as stationery shopping, my early birthday celebration with my friends, celebrating Mother’s Day in The Netherlands, The Netherlands winning Eurovision🎙️and much more. I hope you will all like it.

Things I did with my family 👪:

The Netherlands winning Eurovision Song Contest 2019 🇳🇱 🎶

For me this was the most important event which happened in May. I wrote a whole blog post about it which you can read here. Duncan Laurence represented The Netherlands with the beautiful song Arcade, a story about hope and loss. I’m so happy to have experienced this feeling of seeing my country winning Eurovision with my mother. It’s just such a beautiful feeling full of emotion, happiness and excitement. I will never ever forget this night. The 18th of May will be forever in my mind. He wrote history. After 44 years The Netherlands finally won Eurovision. Now, it’s time for Spain to win too! I can’t wait to see Eurovision live next year.

Thank you Duncan for making me so proud of you, your music and just everything! I love you so much 💕 I already also bought tickets for his concert in Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam in March 2020. He is going to do a tour this year in The Netherlands and in Europe. He will sing in the greatest venue which is The Ziggo Dome next year. I’m so excited to go to his concert with my friend! 😍🎶

Celebrating my early birthday with my family 👪

I had a great afternoon celebrating my early birthday with my family in May! 🎉😍🎁 I celebrated it earlier because of going to Spain. We ate delicious apple pie 🍰 from the Hema and went to the park. My daddy put whipping cream in the mouth of my niece hahaha it was so funny 😂 I got some nice presents and cards which I didn’t open until my birthday. I’m going to share that with you all in my birthday haul. I love to save the gifts and cards because they mean a lot to me. Especially a handwritten letter means the world because a person takes the time to write you something personal. Thank you all so much! I love my family so much 💖

Celebrating Mother’s Day 💐🌷

We celebrated Mother’s Day in The Netherlands 🇳🇱 with my family (my parents, my brother, his wife and her brother and mother). It was so nice to be all together. I gave my mother a beautiful flower bouquet with different flowers and colours. I love Greetz.nl so much! The service and quality is amazing 😍. I also gave her a handmade card.

My brother Rafael gave her beautiful yellow roses, Milka chocolate and a card. My other brother Edward gave her also beautiful pink, violet flowers and a card. It was a beautiful surprise to get it when we were eating. The food was so delicious! 😋 We ate meat, salad, potatoes, bread, fruits, ice cream and much more. What I love the most was the delicious Spanish tortilla de patata which the mother of Verónica made.

Family time in the Cruquius 💗

Me, my mother, the brother and mother of Verónica went an afternoon to the Cruquius. That’s near to my house. I went with the bike and felt a bit dizzy afterwards because there was some wind. I’m not used to go biking anymore. We enjoyed a delicious lunch. I love bread with kroket which is typical Dutch food! I also loved the heart candies. It was great weather. I went with my bike 🚲 and we also walked. Afterwards, we took the ferry boat to go the Molenplas which is the park near to my house. We also saw the lovely 🐮 cows. We had such a nice time together!

Sunny days in the garden 🌞

I love to be in my garden in The Netherlands. It’s nice to enjoy the sunshine there with my mother. In Spain we don’t have a home with a garden just an apartment. I just love to have a garden so much 💕 It’s relaxing to enjoy the sunshine and just be present that moment. I love to read there too. I was reading in that moment the poetry book “Moon theory” from Robert M. Drake which is beautiful.

Eating delicious ice cream 😋🍨

I ate delicious ice cream with mamita during a day we went to the shopping centre near to my house. I love ice cream with sprinkles. I always ate this ice cream when I was younger and I still do it. It brings me so much good vibes and it is so yummy mmmm! 😍

Stationery shopping 🛒🛍️

I went to my favourite shop called Action in The Netherlands and bought a lot of nice stationery. I’m so addicted to buy stationery. I love everything and I can’t wait to use it to write beautiful letters to my pen pals. I bought some amazing stickers, sticky notes, pens, washi tape and cards to make. I also loved the awesome quotes and thoughts about astrology and the universe which I bought 🌌✨

Trip to Spain 🇪🇸

Right now, I’m in Spain since last Tuesday with my mother. It was an early flight which I always hate but we survived it haha. I don’t like flying at 7 o’clock since I didn’t sleep anything that night and felt dead lol. However, I’m always happy to be in Spain. I can’t wait for Summer time to travel with my friends, go surfing 🏄‍♀️, go to the beach 🏖️🌊🌴🌞 and just have fun. It was really hot last weekend like 34 degrees. Right now, it’s around 20 degrees but there’s some wind so it feels cold. The weather is really crazy. The nights are also cold like 7 degrees. In The Netherlands it’s stormy now. I’m sure Summer time will come soon.

Things I did with my friends 💕:

Celebrating my early birthday at Hart Beach 🏄‍♀️🌊🌞

I had such a great time with my friends three weeks ago at my favourite restaurant Hart Beach. I was anxious to go because I didn’t sleep enough because of feeling so excited and so much emotions because the night before was the final of Eurovision. I love this surf 🏄‍♀️ restaurant so much. I also went surfing with Hart Beach in the past. I can’t wait to go surfing again. I’m thankful for my lovely friends and the lovely presents they gave me. I love the food and service so much here. Alohaaaa pura vida vibes! 💗✌️I can’t wait to go back.

I had a children’s menu and it was much food and so good! I loved the chicken nuggets, salad and potatoes. My friends ate another children’s menu with hamburger, some vega food, sweet potatoes and salad. They have such good food to choose from. I also enjoyed a delicious sunset smoothie with papaya, mango, coco 🥥, and apple. As dessert we enjoyed a delicious pie and dame blanche which is vanilla ice cream with warm chocolate sauce and whipped cream. It’s my favourite dessert ever 😍🍨. I always choose that whenever I go to a restaurant.

It was really cold so unfortunately we couldn’t sit outside. Almost every time I go to the beach in Holland it isn’t that great weather 😂🏖️ Hopefully, next time better. I really enjoyed spending time with them all and seeing my friends again. Having family and friends is so important in life because they make you happy. I’m so grateful to have all these good people in life who always cheer me up and with who I can have fun with. I love you all SO much! 😘

My besties birthday party 🎉🎂

My besties birthday was on the 21th of May but she celebrated it Friday the 24th of May. I was also anxious to go to this party because sometimes I feel a pressure to drink when I don’t want. I don’t take antidepressants anymore for my anxiety since it didn’t help anymore. I take sometimes a benzo. However, I just don’t want to drink much alcohol anymore. I also feel sometimes anxious in groups of people I don’t know.

I had a great time and was happy that I went. I had some good talks with a nice girl from her class. It felt great to speak up about my bullying experience since I’m not alone in this. I also had a great time talking to her family which I know very well. I only drank a bit of wine 🍷 which is okay and there was delicious food such as nachos with guacamole, bread with aioli and a delicious pie called mon-sou made by her girlfriend 🎂 It was a pie with cherries 🍒, biscuits and whipping cream. I loved it!

Concert of Alfred Garcia 🎶 🎸

There is no better way to celebrate your birthday with a good concert. Last Friday before my birthday I went to the concert of Alfred Garcia with my good Spanish friend 🎶🎉💕 It was awesome! He is such an amazing artist. He is humble, honest and sensitive. He is different than other artists and that’s what I love the most about him. Some may call him strange but I call that being authentic. Being authentic in a world where society constantly tries to change you is such a beautiful thing to be. He is an amazing singer-songwriter.

I love all his songs of the album 1016 and of course I have his album at home. Buying the music is really important for an artist. My favourite songs of him are definitely “Por si te hace falta” where I cried and felt so happy to have my friend by my side, “Londres”, “Wonder”, “Que nos sigan las luces”, “Et vull veure” and “De la tierra hasta marte”. All his songs are beautiful though.

Thank you Alfred for being such an amazing artist 💗. We met Joe who was the jury in Operación Triunfo, the talentshow where Alfred was part of. Your concert was amazing. He was also sick that day but your voice was beautiful as always. I’m thankful for your music who always make me feel so many emotions. Thank you for being always so supportive, speaking up about mental illnesses, and making this world a better place to live in 🌍. I’m thankful to live in a world where there exists such amazing artists like you. Thank you for everything. I’m sad we couldn’t meet you but hopefully we will meet you soon. Stay the way you are 🌟 I love you loads 💕.

Another awesome thing of May:

Taking a bath with a Lush bath bomb 🛀

I bought a nice Lush bath bomb online and used it in The Netherlands since we don’t have a bath in Spain. It was the bath bomb called Groovy Kind Of Love full of beautiful colours 🌈. It’s amazing for a hippie girl like me. I loved the colours in the beginning. However, the colour which lasted was pretty ugly haha some yellow bath 😂. The bath bomb consisted of rose, bergamot and ylang ylang oils. It was really relaxing. I love to take a bath. That’s what self care is for me.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. What were your favourites from my list? What did you enjoy in May? Could you already enjoy Spring time in your country? 🌞 Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

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.

Concerts, a funny moment meeting your favourite artist and bonfires of Saint John 🎶🔥

Hey lovely bloggers 💕,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sofia Ellar – Amor de anticuario (My favourite song ever 💕🎶)

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

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

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

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

https://www.instagram.com/p/BkaN_6dA5fb/?taken-by=christinax1993

This was the best moment of the concert. I never been to a concert where the artist just come downstairs and dance and sing with us. It was so beautiful and omggg I get emotional every time I see this video and remember this moment. This song is called Amor de anticuario and I love this song so much. It’s one of my favourites. She sings I’m that girl who is tired of offices and who lives her life singing this song. It just reminds me that Sofia Ellar is so real, beautiful and so sweet. She always says we are her family and yesss we are! It’s so important when an artist is on the same line as us. She also took her shoes off one moment and sang barefoot. I find that so awesome! I love you so much xoxo ❤️❤️❤

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

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

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

36063358_10209713074383364_4378654132467138560_n

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

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

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

Much love 💕,

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.

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.
