Music of July 🎶💗

Hola lovelies 💕,

This was again such a good month full of beautiful music! 😍🎶🎵 I’m happy to share some of my favourite songs of July with you all below. I hope you will like them too.

Taylor Swift – The Archer

“All the king’s horses, all the king’s men
Couldn’t put me together again
‘Cause all of my enemies started out friends
Help me hold onto youI’ve been the archer
I’ve been the prey
Who could ever leave me, darling?
But who could stay?”

I can’t wait to buy her new album on the 23th of August which is called Lover. I love this new song of her. It’s included in her new album. It feels different than her album Reputation. I love the sound of it and it sounds and feels so dreamy. I love it so much. I can’t wait for this new era of Taylor full of hearts, flowers and colourful things. I love her so much 😍🌸. Every song she makes is so good!

Miley Cyrus – Mother’s Daughter

“Don’t fuck with my freedom.

My mama always told me that I’d make it
That I’d make it, so I made it
I put my back into and my heart in it
So I did it, yeah, I did it”

I love the new songs of Miley Cyrus! I have to admit that I had to get used to this song but I really like it. It’s a good song and it empowers women. Our freedom is the most important thing. I loved how her mother was also showed in the video. Miley Cyrus is back and I’m really happy about that.

Miley Cyrus – The Most

I love this video even if it isn’t the offical music video but it looks so cute. I love this song so much. The melody, the lyrics, the sound, just everything of it is so awesome!

Duncan Laurence – Arcade (Acoustic version)

I already told you in this blog post about Duncan Laurence winning The Eurovision Song Contest for The Netherlands. I’m just so in love with this song. He just released the acoustic version of Arcade which sounds as good as the other version. So pure and so emotional 😍😭. Goosebumps all over my body. His voice is so beautiful and this song means the most for me. FAVOURITE SONG EVAH. I can’t wait to hear him sing this song live in concert in March in Amsterdam! I also can’t wait to go to Eurovision next year.

Sam Smith – How do you sleep?

I’m done hatin’ myself for feelin’
I’m done cryin’ myself awake
I’ve gotta leave and start the healin’
But when you move like that, I just want to stay

SO GOOD! Amazing song! I love it from the beginning to the end. I love the choreography and his voice is so beautiful. I have to admit that I don’t listen to many of his songs. I guess I have to do it more.

ROSALÍA – F*cking Money Man (Milionària + Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero)

These are two songs which Rosalía released together in the single F*cking Money Man. They are combined in one video. I love them so much. The first one Milionària is in Catalan. It’s a rumba. It’s about her love and hate for money 🤑💰. In this first song she sings about how she would love to be a millionair to buy and do whatever she wants. However, in the other Spanish song Dio$ No$ Libre Del Dinero she sings about how she would want to burn all that money and that God has to save us from it all. I guess we all feel this way about money. It’s nice to have money but money will never buy us all the happiness we need in life. I love the meaning behind these songs and everything!

David Bisbal ft. Juan Mágan – Bésame

Amazing Summer song! 🌞💗🌊 I always have loved David Bisbal so much. I remember dancing and singing on his songs when I was younger and I still am a fan of him. I also love Juan Mágan who makes songs with a more reggeaton style. It’s a song full of good vibes, Summer vibes, happiness and love. Bésame means kiss me. They sing about a girl kissing him for the first time and that he will love him forever in his arms.

Sofia Ellar – La Revolución (For the movie Angry Birds 2)

One of my favourite artists, Sofia Ellar, from Spain has released this new song for the movie Angry birds 2. I love her so much. It’s very cute and it sticks in my head all the time!

Isma Romero ft. Alfred García – Cicatriz

Beautiful song! I didn’t know Isma Romero before. I love their two voices together. It’s such a great song. It’s a temazo like they say in Spain!

Carlos Sadness – Ahorita

I love to discover new artists 😊. Carlos Sadness also sang a song for the album “1016” of Alfred Garcia. He is a Spanish song-writer and his songs are of the genre indie and pop. I just saw this song when I opened Youtube one day and I loved it. It’s a chill song. It’s a song about not being in a hurry. Ahorita means right now or could mean in a little while. They use this expression a lot in Latin America. I always say that I’m on my way but then I’m sometimes too late.

Ed Sheeran – No.6 Collaborations Project

I was so excited for this new album of Ed Sheeran 💕. It’s an album full of collaborations with famous artists such as Justin Bieber, Camila Cabello, Eminem, Bruno Mars and so much more. It’s such a good album with so many styles of music like rap and pop songs! I already loved the song “I don’t care” from Ed Sheeran together with Justin Bieber. Here are my favourites songs from his new album.

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

LOVE THIS SONG 😍. I always love to hear Spanish and English together in one song. It sounds so good! I also love Camila Cabello so much. The melody is also really nice and chill.

Ed Sheeran ft. YEBBA – Best part of me

“But she loves me, she loves me
Why the hell she love me
When she could have anyone else?
Oh, you love me, you love me
Why the hell d’you love me?

‘Cause I don’t even love myself

Baby, the best part of me is you
Lately, everything’s makin’ sense, too
Oh, baby, I’m so in love with you”

WOW WHAT A BEAUTIFUL SONG 💗👌. These are my favourites kinds of songs of Ed Sheeran. I didn’t know YEBBA before and wow she has such a beautiful voice and together with Ed Sheeran it sounds so damn good.

Ed Sheeran ft. Ella Mai – Put it all on me

I try to be strong, well, I got demons
So can I lean on you?
I need a strong heart and a soft touch
And you’re the one when I want love

Another amazing song! I love the sound of it so much. It makes me really happy to listen to this song.

Ed Sheeran ft. Paulo Londra & Dave – Nothing on you

Again I love it when I hear English and Spanish together in one song. It’s such a great mix of voices. It’s a really great song with a good beat.

BTS – Lights

“You’re my light
No matter how far apart we are”

Wow love it! What a beautiful song! This song is all about love and I also read that’s a love letter to their fans. I think that’s so sweet of them. The music video is also so pretty.

Kygo ft. Chelsea Cutler – Not ok

This song was released in May but the video came out in July. I love the clip so much and the song is just AMAZING! It’s okay to not be okay. We all search for validation like you see in this clip. At the end of the clip the girl in the pink dress says: “I want pizza.” and “I look great after a mental breakdown.” I couldn’t relate more to these two sentences hahah 😂✌️.

Thank you all for reading this blog post full of good music 🎶. Have you listen to any of these songs? Which one did you like? What was your favourite song in July? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

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 💕 ,

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.
