Music of August 🎶❤️

Hola lovelies 💕,

I feel like it’s been a long time since I posted a blog. I’ve been feeling depressed, a bit anxious and bad as you could read on my last blog post. I woke up and the whole week I felt this way. It’s not just that I lack a purpose in life. I feel the suffering and the state of the world SO much because I’m a highly sensitive person. It’s okay to feel but sometimes it gets way too overwhelming. I’m happy to feel again lighter and more hopeful. Here’s to better times ahead 🙏✨. I guess especially in these times we have to keep this hope alive because otherwise we wouldn’t be able to cope. It’s too much negative news all the time. It’s okay to take a social media break. Do what feels good to you. I’m back in The Netherlands since a few days. I already miss Spain 😢🇪🇸. Hopefully we will be back soon.

In this blog post I will share you my favourite music of August which includes the AMAZING album Folklore by Taylor Swift 😍🎶, some amazing Spanish songs by Aitana ft. Morat, Lola Indigo and much more.

Taylor Swift – Folklore

OMGGGG MY FAV ARTIST EVER RELEASED A NEW ALBUM JUST AS A SURPRISE!!! 😍😍😍 She announced it and bam there it was. Taylor Swift, the queen of the music industry 👸👑 as known was the artist of the decade. I really love her so much. I love her as a person SO much and also her music is just the best and most beautiful. I loved her last album Lover so much. This album was something totally different and less pop which was really nice. I also missed at times the country Taylor. This is one of my favourite albums of her and I keep listen to it on repeat. I can’t stop it. It’s way too good. She sings about so many stories. She is THE person to write them. I also wanted to make an apart blog post for it later. She wored together with Bon Iver, The National en Jack Antonoff. I love this alternative album SO much 🥰. Its perfect for the end of Summer and beginning of Autumn. It makes me feel nostalgic, sad and it has mistery in it. All my songs are my favourite haha I can’t choose but I will try to choose my favourites which you can listen below.

Taylor Swift – cardigan

”Vintage tee, brand new phone
High heels on cobblestones
When you are young, they assume you know nothing
Sequin smile, black lipstick
Sensual politics
When you are young, they assume you know nothing”

THIS song and the video is so amazing! WOW so beautiful!!! 😍 She directed this all by herself. She choosed the clothes, make up and just everything. I’m so impressed and also not because she literally can do everything. The visuals are out of the world. I love this song. It brings me such a great sense of calm. She also looks so beautiful. The scene in the forest and in the sea are my favourites.

Taylor Swift – the last great american dynasty

And they said “There goes the last great American dynasty”
Who knows, if she never showed up what could’ve been
There goes the maddest woman this town has ever seen
She had a marvelous time ruining everything

This is another amazing song which also has such a great story behind it. It’s about a woman from St. Louis who is named Rebekah West Harkness. She is a famously wild heiress who once owned the Rhode Island coastal mansion that Swift purchased in 2013 for about $17 million. I really like this connection so much. She always have so much stories to tells us in her songs.

Taylor Swift ft. Bon Iver – exile

I think I’ve seen this film before
And I didn’t like the ending
You’re not my homeland anymore
So what am I defendin’ now?
You were my town
Now I’m in exile seein’ you out
I think I’ve seen this film before

This duet is SO beautiful with Bon Iver!!! 😍 This is one of my favourite songs ever. The low voice of Bon Iver blends really well with Taylor in this song. It’s a sad song and makes me feel so much. This song is about a doomed couple rehashing their relationship. It beings very low and when they sing together it explodes which is my favourite part ever. You can feel the emotion in it. This song is just in prefect harmony.

Taylor Swift – betty

But if I just showed up at your party
Would you have me?
Would you want me?
Would you tell me to go fuck myself
Or lead me to the garden?
In the garden would you trust me
If I told you it was just a summer thing?
I’m only seventeen
I don’t know anything but I know I miss you

The songs cardigan/betty and august are a ‘Teenage Love Triangle’. James and Betty are two teens who were dating, but over the summer James started secretly sleeping with another girl. Betty found out about the affair from Inez, and tried to break up with James but it sounds like they got back together in the end. ‘Cardigan’ is from Betty’s point of view, lamenting the loss of young love. ‘August’ is from the perspective of the other woman, who had the secret summer affair with James. And ‘betty’ is all about James trying to get Betty back. Taylor is so good in storytelling. This song sounds so country which I really did miss these years. I really love this song. I also like the harmonica too. It makes it even better.

Aitana ft. Morat – Más de lo que aposté

Aitana is becoming such an amazing artist since she participated in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. This song is so catchy! It’s so amazing 😍. Also, Morat is an amazing band from Colombia. This collab is again a hit.

Rvfv ft. Lola Indigo – Trendy

Awesome song again from Lola Indigo! I love the cowboy vibes 😍🤠👢 She dances and sings so well. I love all the dancers so much. The choreography is amazing.

Eva B – América

Eva became third in Operación Triunfo this year. She has so much personality and charisma. I love the videoclip and this single of her fits her so well. I can’t wait for more amazing songs of her.

Jawsh 685 x Jason Derulo – Savage Love (Laxed – Siren Beat)

I always heard this song on the radio in Spain and immediately loved it. It’s so catchy and uplifting! 😍 It really makes me happy to listen to. It’s been a long time since I listened to Jason Derulo.

Miley Cyrus – Midnight sky

“I was born to run, I don’t belong to anyone, oh no
I don’t need to be loved by you

Miley is back with such a masterpiece! 😍 I really like the whole vibes of this song. I love her low voice. It sounds SO good!! I’m happy she is back with great music.

BLACKPINK ft. Selena Gomez – Ice cream

This is an amazing collaboration with the Kpop group BLACKPINK and Selena Gomez. I love ice cream 😍🍨. Hahah this song makes me want to eat one. I really like this song.

Lola Indigo ft. Danna Paola y Denise Rosental – Santería

Wow this song and video is SO awesome! 😍 Three powerful women together 🔥 This song relates to a religion that was developed in Cuba. The videoclip is amazing. The performance is so good!! This is a perfect song to dance on and also makes you feel empowered as a woman 💃♀️.

Amaia Romero – Cosas interesantes para decir

I’m so happy Amaia is back with some new music. It’s so good! 💖. It’s a great pop song which makes you happy. I’m so happy she always stays authentic and real. Her voice is always so sweet which I love so much.

Amaia Romero – La victoria

These two songs were recorded directly in the studio. I really like this one too. The instruments are also amazing. I can’t wait to see her live one day with her band. She sings about people looking at her but not seeing her. She also sings about how not everyone tells the truth which is so relatable nowadays.

Nea ft. Felix Jaehn – Some say remix

I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH!!!! 😍😍 I heard it so much on the Spanish radio. The chorus can remind you of the song Blue da ba dee by Eiffel 65. It’s really such a relaxing song.

BTS – Dynamite

What a great new song of BTS! I can’t wait to see what they have in store with their new album. I’m sure there will be more amazing song in it like this one. BTS never fails in making amazing music. They are such cuties too. Thank you for making this world a better place to live in.

JoJo ft. Demi Lovato – Lonely hearts

I really miss some more music with Demi Lovato. I really liked this collab with JoJo. I really like when they sing together. It sounds very well. Maybe it’s not totally my style of music I would listen to but I like it.

Thank you all for reading and listening to these amazing list of songs. What are your favourite songs of Folklore? Which song do you like from my list? To which artist do you listen to often? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

Music of April 🎶💖

Hey lovelies 💕,

I’m still griefing about the loss of the inspiring and beautiful surfers who died in our North Sea last monday the 11th of May 😢. You can read the whole story in my last blog post. With that post I also wrote my 200th post on my blog. I’m so proud of that achievement and for all of your support and love. I wouldn’t be there without you guys. I love you so much 😍. Now, let’s get on with this post. I will share some beautiful music I listened to in April. There were some beautiful new Spanish songs from Sofía Ellar ft. Álvaro Soler and Aitana and also amazing songs from Dua Lipa and Selena Gomez.

Sofía Ellar ft. Álvaro Soler – Barrer a casa

I LOVE THISSSS SWEET SONG SO MUCH!!!! 🥰💕 Also, I love Sofía and Álvaro so much. They are together as a couple too and are really well known artists from Spain. Spain have more than 20.000 deaths and is now doing a bit better. They are slowly going out of the lockdown. They weren’t allowed to leave the house at all, only to the supermarket or pharmacy. This song was made in lockdown and the home made video is just so cute. It’s about this situation where we don’t have the freedom to do what we want to do.

Lola Indigo ft. Rauw Alejandro & Lalo Ebratt – 4 besos

Lola Indigo is such an amazing Spanish artist and this collaboration is so amazing! Sounds a nice beat, melody and dance! She is not only a good singer but also a great dancer 💃.

David Bisbal ft. Aitana – Si tu la quieres


David Bisbal and Aitana singing together is just a bless! It’s so beautiful and emotional. Their voices are so good together. They both ended at the second place of the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo and are now super famous. I’m really loving this collaboration. This song is about love knowing no distance. Right now, we can’t see our families and friends but we still give love to those we love only now it’s with a distance between us.

Lewis Capaldi – Someone you loved


”I’m going under and this time I fear there’s no one to save me
This all or nothing really got a way of driving me crazy
I need somebody to heal
Somebody to know
Somebody to have
Somebody to hold
It’s easy to say
But it’s never the same
I guess I kinda liked the way you numbed all the pain

I love Lewis Capaldi more and more now. This is such a beautiful and emotional song. We all need someone to hold us when we feel bad and not someone who leave us. His voice is so magical ✨.

Lewis Capaldi – Before you go


Another beautiful song of Lewis! It’s so touching and just so beautiful. I can’t wait to listen to more songs of him.

Leighton Meester – Summer girl

I’m just a summer girl
I wear my flip flops
And when I let my hair down
That’s when the party starts
And who needs a boyfriend
I got my girlfriends
And when we get together
The summer never ends
Yeah whoa

I didn’t know Leighton could sing too. She is known as Blake in one of my favourite series ever: xoxo Gossip Girl. I love country songs and this song is so cute. I’m a Summer girl too 🌞🌊🏄‍♀️. I can’t wait for Summer even though it will not be the best Summer ever. I hope to make it a good one. I can’t wait to wear my flip flops, bikini and swim in the sea. That’s my ray of happiness. She sings so well and it’s so cute!

La Oreja de Van Gogh – Abrázame

This is a beautiful new song from my favourite Spanish band. They come from Basque country. I have listened all my life to their beautiful music. This song is called hug me 🤗 and it’s so touching. It’s a new song of their upcoming new album in a few months. They just make the best music ever.

Vanesa Martín – Un canto a la vida

This is an emotional song about our current situation in the world. All the purchases of this song will go to The Red Cross to combate the Coronavirus. I think that’s a beautiful idea and the song is amazing! It’s a song about hope and about going on in life. It’s about being all together, being an empath and solidair with each other. Those are so important qualties and not only now but always. We have to give thanks for all the people working in the health sector fighting for others and for their lives each day.

Resistiré 2020 – 30 artists

This is one of my favourite Spanish songs. The original is from Dúo Dinámico. In this version 30 Spanish artists sing together about being all together and united to combate the Coronavirus together. Resistir means to resist. We have to resist all together 💪💕. We can do it even though sometimes I feel a bit tired of all of this. I just wish it wouldn’t take so long to get to a new world and see each other again. I really am craving connection and seeing my family and friends. I only see my parents because I live with them. I’m grateful for a safe home but I still miss face to face connection so much. It’s a touching song and I love that the funds go to a NGO called Cáritas in Spain.

Dani Martin ft. Juanes – Los huesos

Two amazing Spanish artists are singing together a powerful and amazing song. I love it! Their voices combine perfectly.

Selena Gomez – Boyfriend

”I want a boyfriend
But I just keep hitting dead ends
Try to take a shortcut, but I get cut
Again and again
I want a boyfriend
Tell me, are there any good ones left?
I keep finding wrong ones, but I want love
Again and again
I want a boyfriend”

Selena Gomez always makes such good music! This song is sooo catchy and nice. I really like it!! I also would love to have a nice boyfriend haha but I guess yes I only find bad ones.

Dua Lipa – Future Nostalgia

I love Dua Lipa and I’m really happy that her new album came out!!! It’s so good. I already shared the song Physical which I love in this blog post. I will share some other nice songs below.

Dua Lipa – Break my heart

WOW such an amazing song! I love it so much. Dua Lipa never fails. The video clip is also so well made. I love her vibes so much. I really can see myself dancing this song during a party but oh wait Coronatimes so that has to wait a bit more.

Dua Lipa – Boys will be boys

It’s second nature to walk home before the sun goes down
And put your keys between your knuckles when there’s boys around
Isn’t it funny how we laugh it off to hide our fear
When there’s nothin’ funny here
Sick intuition that they taught us so we won’t freak out
We hide our figures, doin’ anythin’ to shut their mouths
We smile away to ease the tension so it don’t go south
But there’s nothin’ funny now”

OMG this song!!! 😍👌It’s so good. Again a song about feminism and the lyrics is just so good. It’s the best. We are always afraid of walking home and have our keys in our hands. Men can just walk normally during the night. We have the right to come home safely too. I love the chorus and the other voices you hear. Such a nice song. Girls will be women yeahhh right! 👭♀️💜

OG3NE – Bohemian Rhapsody

This version of Bohemian Rhapsody is so good from my favourite Dutch girl band OG3NE. They sing so beautiful in harmony together. I have so much love and respect for them. They lost their mother after participating in Eurovision a few years ago. They still sing together and it’s always so beautiful. Even the page on Instagram from Queen has reshared this video. They really deserve all the love. It’s so difficult to sing this all together while being isolated.

Miriam Rodríguez – La Dirección de tu Suerte

Miriam also participated in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo in 2017. This is her second album and I really like it so much. Her voice has so much power and I love the songs she writes. She is such a great singer-songwriter. She is also called ‘La Leona’ which means lion because she is a powerful women and has so much pressence when she sings on stage. I already shared the song ‘No sé quién soy’ of her new album in my last music post. I will share my favourite songs of the album below.

Miriam Rodríguez – Desperté

This is an amazing song. I love her voice, power and just everything. I also am in love with the beautiful moon 🌕. Such a beautiful way to represent this song. Desperté was the first single of the album which she released. Desperté means waking up. She sings about living with sadness. Sometimes we want to dissapear but we have to find our way in life and wake up. We have to find a way to live with the sadness we feel in life.

Miriam Rodríguez – No fui yo

This such an emotional and beautiful song. I really like it how she has so many different songs in her new album, some amazing ballads like this one and some other pop songs.

Thank you all so much for reading this blog post. Hopefully you listened to some of these amazing songs. I hope you liked them. What was your favourite song? Which is one song you listen to often? What was your favourite song in April? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina


Music of January 🎶🌺🌸

Hey lovelies 💕,

I listened to some amazing music in January. I will share all the new music which has been released that month in this post. I hope you will like it. I love the new album of Selena Gomez 😍. There are so many amazing songs in it. Also some other Spanish songs has been released such as from Rosalía and Shakira.

Lizzo – Good as hell

I just listened to this song because in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo some participants were singing it. I’m always late too listening to some songs haha. I really love this song so much! So much girl power! 💪💜 More songs of this style please.

Jonas Brothers – What a man gotta do

The Jonas Brothers are on fire lately! 😍🔥 They are releasing so many good songs. I love this song and the video is so catchy too. I also really LOVE that their wives are in so many videoclips. It’s so cute. I wish to go to one of their concerts and sing and dance along every song of them.

John Legend – Conversations in the dark

”I won’t ever try to change you, change you
I will always want the same you, same you
Swear on everything I pray to
That I won’t break your heart
I’ll be there when you get lonely, lonely
Keep the secrets that you told me, told me
And your love is all you owe me
And I won’t break your heart

I don’t listen to John Legend that much but sometimes I hear a song I really love like this one. He is such a great artist. This song is so beautiful and touching. I love how he writes about love and how this music just make you feel that love. I feel a bit alone too while listening to this song because of being single. Deep down I crave for that one true love.

India Menzel ft. Evan Rachel Wood – Show yourself (Frozen 2)

”Show yourself
Step into your power
Throw yourself
Into something new
You are the one you’ve been waiting for
All of my life
All of your life
Oh, show yourself”

When I watched Frozen 2 I felt completely in love with this song and everything in this scene 😍✨. I relate to this song so much. I have to show myself more instead of hiding in this world. I hide myself because of being bullied in my teens. I am worth it and have the right to love and show myself. We all have our answers in ourselves. We just have to look into our hearts and find it. This song is just so wonderful. Frozen is amazing.

Kacey Musgraves – All is found (Frozen 2)

I find this song so relaxing and so beautiful too. I love Disney for their beautiful movies such as Frozen and for the beautiful music such as this song. It’s so touching and cute.

Taylor Swift – Only the young

While I was watching the amazing documentary of Taylor Swift called Miss Americana I heard this new song for the first time 💖. I wrote about her documentary in this post. This song is SO GOOD!!! It’s a song with a message. We are the genereation who can save and change this world 🌍💪. We may be young but we can do it! We have the right to speak up about anything we believe in.

Eva – Let’s twist again (Operación Triunfo 2020)

I love this Spanish talent show so I will share some nice covers which they sing in the liveshows. I love how Eva sang Let’s twist again by Chubby Checker. She did it so well and so good. She was wearing clothes from her grandfather haha so awesome! I love her expression and everything. Such a good performance. I wish I would feel so comfortable singing on that stage.

Rosalía – Juro que

AAAHHH Rosalía is back with some beautiful flamenco music! 💃 It’s about a flamenco girl who was physically and verbally abused. She is back to her roots and I love it. I also love when she make songs in the genre of reggeaton but I love these kinds of songs more in her style.

Shakira ft. Anuel AA – Me gusta

I can’t wait for more new music of Shakira. I love her old songs so much such as Waka Waka and La Bicicleta. I also like this song. It’s catchy.

Selena Gomez – Rare

Finally Selena is back with a new album! 💕 I have missed her. She is such a good and genuine artist. She already released the amazing songs Loose you to love me and Look at her now. I love her new music. I will share my top three favourite songs of her new album with you.

Selena Gomez – Rare

I know that I’m special”

Beautiful song! This videoclip is also so beautiful. I love the colours, her being in nature and her dress. She is so special and so beautiful 🌸. We are all special in our own way. I love the message of this song so much. It also sounds so good. It’s really her style.

Selena Gomez – People you know

We used to be close, but people can go
From people you know to people you don’t
And what hurts the most is people can go

Another amazing song of Selena. I really feel this way too. We all loose people in our lives whether that is due to falling apart, grief or anything else 💔. I find it hard sometimes to let people go but sometimes it’s for the best. Her voice is so beautiful. I love the beat in this song too.

Selena Gomez ft. 6LACK – Crowded room

This is such a relaxing song. I can feel those vibes. I love it when she sings those high notes. It all sounds so good.

BTS – Black Swan (Performed by MN Dance Company)

I cried while watching this beautiful, amazing and inspiring music video of the new song Black Swan by BTS 🦢. This is real music. It feels like the guy dancing feels like not fitting in with the others and is doing his own dance. That’s what I feel while watching it. I love the instruments and just everything. The dancers are amazing. So incredible beautiful! This is real art.

G. Soul – Bad habit

While I was listening to Black Swan I saw this song from G.Soul. Nice song. I don’t listen that much to K-pop but I really like this song and the beats of it.

The Original Rudeboys – Hypocrite

I’M SO HAPPY THEY ARE BACK! ☺️👏 I missed them so much. I loved listening to their music. The Original Rudeboys was the support act of The Script some years ago when I went to see them. I love the songs Stars in my eyes, Travelling man and Blue eyes. I love this new song of them. They make such great music together and sing very well. I can’t wait for more music of them this year.

Racoon – Het is al laat toch

Racoon is one of my fav bands of The Netherlands. They are so talented. I loved when I saw them live in Haarlem once. I’m happy they are making music again. I really like this new song. I normally don’t like that much when Dutch artists sing in Dutch but sometimes it’s really good like this time haha. I just am more used to listening songs in English or in Spanish.

Thank you so much for reading this blog post and listening to these amazing songs. Which song is your favourite? What kind of music do you listen to? What was your favourite song from January? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

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 💕,

Music of January 🎶💕

Hey lovelies 💕,

I thought it was fun to write such a post as I’ve never done this before. I saw many bloggers writing such a blog post such as my amazing friend Chloe. Her music taste is amazing so everybody has to check out her lovely blog. In this blog post I will share you my favourite music which I listened to in the month January. You may know some of them and some not like my love for Spanish music. I hope you will all enjoy them.

Alfred Garcia – De la tierra hasta marte

Alfred Garcia was participating in the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo which I love so much 🎤. Alfred Garcia is such an amazing singer, artist and lovely person. He plays piano, guitar and the trombone. During the talent show the 16 people where in an singing academy. This is one song from his new album named 1016. Alfred made 16 songs in the academy and put them together in one album. It’s just incredible that every song is composed by himself. De la tierra hasta marte means from the earth to mars. This is his first single and I love it so much 😍. The videoclip is also beautiful and so is his style.

Alfred Garcia – Album 1016

Here you can listen to all of his songs of his album 1016. I got his album for Three Kings Dat as a present. The number 1016 was his casting number during the talent show. These are all amazing songs which he composed. They are about life, love, cities where he got inspired, letting go and so much more. The inspiration for the picture of his album is a mix of Michael Jackson, David Bowie and Nick Cave. In his eyes you can see a light bulb which is how he call his fans. There’s a song I love so much which is “Que nos sigan las luces” which means “Let the lights follow us”. It’s one of my favourite songs together with “Londres”, “Wonder”, “Et vull veure” in catalan which he sings with Amaia Romero which is one of my other favourite people from the talent show, and “Por si te hace falta”. Every song has so much meaning and is so beautiful. I would love to go soon to one of his concerts and meet Alfred. I love honest, vulnerable and lovely artists as he is. He also suffered from anxiety and depression and always talks open about mental health which inspires me so much. He is always contributing to making this world a better place such as donating money and helping at Proactive arms which saves refugees or other good proyects. Real artists help other people and are there for them 💕. He definitely is.

Operación Triunfo 2018 , 10th live show – Somos

This year there was a new edition of Operación Triunfo and I loved it. This song is the anthem of this edition. Every edition all the 16 people make together one song that belongs to them. This song is talking about revolution, freedom and talking about how this generation is the force and the change. It’s about speaking up after being silenced for so long. I love the good vibes of this song so much 🎶. Makes me really happy when I listen to it.

Julia Michaels ft. Selena Gomez – Anxiety

“I make all these plans with friends and hope they call and cancel

Then I overthink about the things I’m missing

Now I’m wishing I was with ’em

But all my friends, they don’t know what it’s like, what it’s like

They don’t understand why I can’t sleep through the night

I’ve been told that I could take something to fix it

Damn, I wish it, I wish it was that simple, ah

All my friends they don’t know what it’s like, what it’s like

I got all these thoughts, running through my mind

All the damn time and I can’t seem to shut it off”

I love Julia Michaels and Selena Gomez. I’m happy Selena Gomez is back with this song with Julia. This song is such a bop. It’s so beautiful, inspiring and so honest. They both know what it’s to suffer from anxiety. The lyrics is just so relatable. I also cancel plans and then I feel bad for cancelling it because I think my friends will have fun without me. Sleeping is hard too because your mind doesn’t stop thinking. I also love the voices together and the sound. I love this song and I can’t stop playing it. It’s on repeat all the time. I hope they will make a videoclip of this song too.

Julia Michaels – Album Inner Monologue part 1

The song Issues is such a popular song from Julia Michaels which I love so much. Here you can listen to her first 6 songs from her new album. Her album is full of honesty and vulnerability. She talks about love, finding a new love and suffering from anxiety. I really like all of these songs. My favourite song apart from Anxiety is the song called Apple. It has such a nice melody and sound. I also love the song What a time so much together with Niall Horan.

Alvaro Soler – Loca

Alvaro Soler is one of my favourite Spanish artists. I went to one concert and I also met him once with my good friend. He is such a lovely person and artist. His songs are always amazing and full of love. This is one of his new songs called Loca. It’s about love. I love the music video too because Alvaro spent some years living in Tokyo so this video is also filmed there.

Ariana Grande – 7 rings

This song is of course included into this post. I have to admit that I had to listen to this song some times to actually like it because it’s just different than the other songs. I like Thank u, next and God is a woman more. This is also a good song. Ariana only makes good music and she’s just on fire with her music 😍🔥.

James Blake ft. Rosalía – Barefoot in the park

This is such a good song. The voices of James and Rosalía matches perfectly. I love Rosalía so much. She’s a famous Spanish singer, 25 years old, from Catalonia who sings new flamenco, folk and art pop songs. She is doing many colloborations with other international artists such as with James.

Miki, Eurovision Live Show from Operación Triunfo 2018 – La venda

Miki was also participating in the new edition of the talent show Operación Triunfo. There was a live show where Spain had to choose who and which song was going to go to Eurovision. I voted for Miki because I just love this song so much. Miki is so handsome and cute. I also love this song so much. This song is made by the Catalian band La Pegatina. Miki performs so well and bring only good vibes to the audience. I really hope this song will make a good position in Eurovision in May. This song is all about fiesta and about letting go of prejudices and just loving yourself. It’s a beautiful up tempo song which makes me so happy when I listen to it 💃.

Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper – Shallow

In January I finally saw the beautiful movie “A star is born”. I couldn’t leave this song out in this music list. I have listened to this song for months now. It’s so beautiful. I love it so much. Their love story is also beautiful and this song fits perfectly for the movie and the story.

Taylor Swift – Love Story

This song is already 10 years old omgggg so many years 😂. It’s still one of my favourite songs of Taylor Swift 😍. I love her new album “Reputation” and I also bought it but I just can’t stop loving her old songs. It makes me nostalgic because I listened so much to her songs when I was together with my first love. I loved this song and “Fairytale”. I listened to this song during the movie “Letters to Juilet.” It’s such a beautiful song. I can’t stop loving it. The clip is also so cute and wonderful.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I hope you all liked it. I love to share music too because music is life. Which song was your favourite? Can you relate to my list? Which song/songs were you listening this month? I’m always in to discover new beautiful music. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

I’m not good enough 💭

Hey sweeties 😍,

Today I wanna talk about something which has been stuck in my head for so long. Today I wanna talk about the thought: I’m not good enough. I have to confess that I have had this thought my whole life. I always have had the fear of not being good enough. I have wasted a lot of time in thinking that I’m not good enough. I think it’s also because I have been bullied that I feel this way. If you haven’t read this story yet, you can read that story here: My story of being bullied

tumblr_oggqqfQeeX1r51rrmo1_500.jpg

I think many of us have this thought in the back of our minds. That fear of not being succesful enough, not smart enough, not beautiful enough…. I think that society also creates this thought. Especially women always have to be thin and look a certain way to be good enough. I see that on social media accounts, magazines and on television. I just see that everywhere. I think this is also the reason why many women start a strong diet, fitness to loose weight and develop eating disorders…. They will never feel good enough because they are not doing fitness to feel good about themselves. They are doing fitness to look a certain way to feel good. They will never obtain that goal, it’s just an illusion. Even if they loose some weight, it just will never be good enough. They continue and that is really dangerous for their health. I like to swim, do yoga or other sports and afterwards I feel good about myself. I don’t do it to loose weight or look a certain way. That’s the big difference. Of course, this can also happen with boys but there are still many more women who suffer from this problem.

We have to look a certain way to feel good about ourselves. It’s just bullshit. I know sometimes I look to other girls and compare myself way too often. I would for example see a girl who looked perfect in my eyes and instantly think like why can’t I be as beautiful as her, wear awesome fashion as her…. I’m not very good in matching oufits and I’m always kinda jealous about girls who dress so perfectly well. Why can’t I be like her? Sometimes I meet people and they tell me about their career and perfect life. Then I always feel like a failure. Thoughts as why can’t I do awesome things in life and am I really a failure come up. I have to know that life isn’t perfect and that everything we see on social media ain’t not true. We all have our ups and downs in life even though you only see the highlights on social media.

Why do I always feel like I’m not good enough? I learned about self love and self-care these years but I still have to work a lot to feel like I’m good enough and worth it. I don’t have to be another person or look a certain way to be good enough. I just have to be myself, wear what I want and love myself the way I’m.

I also had this thought a lot when it comes to boys. When I had a boyfriend from 17 till 19 years old, I felt like I was worthy of love and felt good enough. This was a kinda stupid thought because I’m already beautiful and not just because I have a boyfriend. I always thought somebody had to love me to feel good enough about myself. When he broke up with me, I felt really lost because I never learned to love myself. Everything happens for a reason. The break up learned me to love myself for who I’m, to respect myself, to set boundaries and to know that I’m good enough. I also learned that I first have to love myself before I can love someone else. I really love the quote “We accept the love, we think we deserve” from the Perks of being a wallflower – Stephen Chbosky. I love Emma Watson and Logan Lerman so much. I encourage anyone to read the book and see this beautiful movie. After he broke up with me, I felt really insecure and had a low self esteem. I attracted the wrong boys because I thought that that was the love I deserve. Now, I learned that I deserve someone who would really respect me and my boundaries, love me for the way I’m and just have a safe and loving relationship.

I know there are still so many of us struggling with body image. I find that so incredible sad. We are born out of love and have to embrace our bodies. Our body is our temple and is beautiful just the way it’s. Society creates this image that we have to look a certain way to be beautiful. I hope you all are trying to learn to embrace your body and love yourself. You are loved, you are worth it, your body is beautiful and so are you ❤ I know I still have to learn a lot about this subject but every step forward is a big accomplishment. I have to try to stop comparing myself to others and know that I can be myself and be beautiful.

I hope this blog post will help all the people who are struggling right now with their body image and with the thought of not being good enough. Remember, that you are not your thoughts. You are beautiful just the way you are. I advice you to practice self love every day and be surrounded by good people. For example, when you wake up and look at the mirrow you can look at yourself and tell yourself you are beautiful. Maybe, this will have a positive effect on yourself. Start doing little things which will replace this negative thoughts about yourself into good thoughts about yourself 💕 I know it’s hard but we are all in this together 💪❤ You can all achieve amazing things in life!

To end this blog post, I will share this beautiful song from Selena Gomez & The Scene. I love the lyrics so much because it’s exactly about what I have just written about. Her song is about being your own beautiful selves ❤❤❤You don’t have to be like anyone else. You don’t have to be a beauty queen but just your own beautiful self. Selena Gomez is such a role model for self love 💕 I love her and her beautiful songs so much. I’m going to make a blog post about self love songs soon because there are so many beautiful songs out there.
