Music of December 2019 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕,

Another blog post which is a bit late lol hahah but that doesn’t matter, right?! 😂💖 I really had to share this one because some really good music have been released at the end of 2019. The new album of Harry Styles is so awesome. I also love the new album of Camila Cabello so much. Also some other good music has been released. I will share it all with you in this blog post.

Camila Cabello – Romance

The new album of Camila is so goooood!!! 😍 I really wish to go to one of her concerts. She is coming to Amsterdam in June but I can’t go to all the concerts I want to go this year because it cost a lot of money 😥. Her new album is lovely pop music with good lyrics and also of course romantic. I love all her songs. They are so good. She’s such a great singer. I already loved the songs Shameless, Liar, Señorita, Easy and Cry for me. Here are my other three favourite songs of her.

Camila Cabello ft. DaBaby – My oh my

I love this live performance in The Tonight show of Jimmy Fallon. This song is so catchy and so nice! 🎶 I really like it so much. She is also such a great performer.

Camila Cabello – Bad kind of butterflies

Such a nice song! I really like the sound of it. I just love everything okay haha 😂💖.

Camila Cabello – First man

You’re looking at me, while walking down the aisle
With tears in your eyes, maybe he deserves me
You don’t even know how much it means to me now
That you were the first man that really loved me, that really loved me
You really love me

THIS SONG IS JUST SO BEAUTIFUL I CRY 😍😭. I also loved the performance she gave of this song in the Grammys. It’s so emotional as her daddy is there and she is singing this song for him. She also looks so beautiful in her pink dress. Such a goddess. This song is for all the fathers out there. Our parents are definitely the first ones that really loves us unconditionally. My daddy is the only man I trust. It’s not totally true but it’s to be honest it’s just hard to find a man you can trust.

Aitana ft. Cali y El Dandee – +

This song is sooooo beautiful 😍💕. I have already listened to this song 10000 times. Aitana is amazing and Cali y El Dandee are also so nice. Together they sing beautifully. The videoclip is also so well made. It’s made in Argentina. I cried when I heard and watched it. It’s just the best. This song is about a first love that isn’t there anymore. She sings about that she knows that he isn’t coming back. She loves him more. She can’t forget him. I know this feeling so well. I’m happy that I’m not heartbroken anymore but I still don’t know how to ever love someone again because I’m afraid to get hurt again.

Lola Indigo – Luna

I love this song! Lola Indigo is such a great Spanish singer too. She only release good songs like this one. Luna 🌜 is moon in Spanish. I love the moon and everything about it. She also has a tattoo of a moon. I would love to have that one day too if I ever get over my needle fear ughhh.

Sofia Ellar ft. Blas Cantó – Humanidad en paro

So beautiful! Sofia Ellar is one of my favourite Spanish artists and I also really love Blas Cantó which is going to represent Spain 🇪🇸 in Eurovision this year. Sofia Ellar made this song a few years ago. It’s about speaking up about human rights when some people can’t. This song is about refugees. I think it’s really beautiful. Their voices are so unique together. I also agree about the message. We can all help each other 🙏✨.

Harry Styles – Fine line

Finally Harry Styles released his new album Fine line!!! 💖 It’s so good. I also like every song of this new album of Harry Styles. I have to admit that I didn’t listen that much to Harry Styles but I began to listen to him more and I really like him. I love Sign of the times and also all the songs of One Direction. His new songs are so amazing just like he is as a person. Such a sweetheart. I also wish to go to one of his concerts one day with one of my best friends Chloe. It would be so amazing. I loved the songs he released before the album which were Watermelon sugar and Lights up. I will share now with you my other three favourites.

Harry Styles – Adore you

This song is just so amazing. I also loved that the voice you hear which is telling you a story is Rosalía. She’s a popular singer in Spain and internationally too. This videoclip, the song and just everything is amazing about this song.

Harry Styles – Canyon Moon

Staring at the ceiling
Two weeks and I’ll be home
Carry the feeling
Through Paris, all through Rome
And I’m still thinking back to
A time under the canyon moon

Aaaah this sounds like a country song and I love it!!! 💃🕺It also sounds as a song from the 70’s or so. It makes me so happy. This song would be so good to make it on a playlist for a roadtrip during the Summer. I also love his whistles. It sounds so cute.

Harry Styles – Treat people with kindness

Maybe we can find a place to feel good
And we can treat people with kindness
Find a place to feel good

Treat people with kindness is what Harry Styles stands for. THIS SONG IS AMAZING. I love the background choir. It sounds amazing as well as his voice of course. Such a feel good song!

Maan – Ze huilt maar ze lacht

She is sitting here alone in the train
And she hides in her coat
She looks out of the window
And she wonders
How would it feel to be yourself
Because sometimes it hurts
But she cries but she laughs
She cries but she laughs 

She walks through a world that does not feel kind
Unintentionally she says things that everyone always says
Because things never go bad
Always okay and she talks along with them
And she laughs
She cries but she laughs

And now… she let’s it go

I don’t listen that much to Dutch music but this song is really so touching and I really cried so much hearing it 💖. I feel it and the lyrics is so relatable. The videoclip was just released in Janary. This song is just so raw and vulnerable. I guess many of us can feel this way. I always laugh so people think I’m happy all the time which I’m not. Sometimes it can be a mask. I also sometimes make other people feel like everything is okay with me when it’s not. I just don’t want to bother people because I feel that sometimes I’m too much. I learned that it’s okay to be ourselves and that we can let our feelings go and just be ourselves. All our feelings matter 🙏. There are always people who care about us and will love us for the way we are. We are not alone.

Taylor Swift – Christmas tree farm

“In my heart is a Christmas tree farm
Where the people would come
To dance under sparkling lights
Bundled up in their mittens and coats
And the cider would flow
And I just wanna be there tonight”

This song is so cute. Everything about Taylor Swift is just so good 😍👌. I listened to this song a lot during Christmas time. I also love the cute pictures from her and her family when she was younger. She looks so cute!!! She is still such a sweetheart and I’m so happy I live in a world where she exists, my fav artist evah. Yeah, I love her that much haha. I wish to see her live once.

Louis Tomlinson – Don’t let it break your heart

I like this song. It’s a really nice song and Louis sings very well. I don’t listen to much of his songs but I really like this one.

Thank you for reading this music 🎶 blog post. I hope you liked some songs of this post. Which one was your favourite? What do you think of the new albums of Harry Styles and Camila Cabello? What was your favourite song from 2019? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

Spotify Wrapped 2019 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕,

I love to read other music reviews of 2019 and I also loved to see mine. I’m excited to share it with you all. Music is life. We can know a person’s personality through their music style. I love Taylor Swift, she’s my favourite artist of this decade and forever. I love romantic music and music which touch my soul 🎶. It has to make me feel something. Music is always there for us, in good and bad times. I can definitely see within the years I have Spotify how my music taste has changed depending on what I was going through in my life.

How my music changed within the seasons

Winter ❄️☃️🌬️

In the Winter I listened to Ariana Grande, Alfred García and the podcast of Yoga Girl. The new album Thank u, next of Ariana just came out and I had it on repeat. Same goes for the album of Alfred which came out in December. I also listened a lot to the podcast of Yoga Girl – conversations from the heart. I listen to her podcast every week so that doesn’t change at all.

Spring 🌼🌷🌻

During the Spring time I listened again a lot to Ariana Grande, Alfred García and to the podcast of Yoga Girl – conversations from the heart. What changed was that I also listened a lot to the song Arcade of the Dutch Duncan Laurence which was the winner of Eurovision. Best song ever. Goosebumps all the time.

Summer 🌞🌊

In the Summer I only listened to Taylor Swift’s new album Lover. Best album ever 😍💖. I still listen to it. I also listened to the podcast of Yoga Girl of course. That never changes haha.

Autumn 🍁🍃

During Autum my music didn’t change that much. I still listened to Taylor Swift, and also to a new podcast of Yoga Girl which is Yoga Girl daily. The daily version are just 5 minutes each day which could be a meditation or an insight or thankful Thursday. I also listened to Miki Núñez who represented Eurovision for Spain last year 🎉🇪🇸.

Top artist of 2019

My top artist was Ariana Grande which was surprising to me because deep down in my heart my top artist is Taylor Swift haha sorry, no not sorry 😂💖. I also love Ariana so much and because her album came earlier I listened more to her album in the beginning of 2019. Maybe, next year this changed. I listened more than 10 hours to her music. My favourite song was bloodline. I love this song.

Top artists of 2019

I’m not surprised that these are my top artists as they are my favs but I also thought Amaia and Sofia Ellar would make the list. I also listened so much to them. Maybe, next year. I love Ariana, Taylor, Alfred, Julia and Aitana. I love to listen to American artists and Spanish ones.

World citizen

I listened to a lot of music from different countries of the world 🌍. I listened to music from 24 different countries. I listened to music from USA (Ariana Grande), of course Spain a lot (Aitana), United Kingdom (Ed Sheeran), Avicii (Sweden, his posthumous album was beautiful… I still miss him so much) and also BTS (South Korea).

My top genres

I listened mostly to pop music, Spanish pop, Dutch pop, Colombian pop and R&B in Spanish. It’s just all pop except of the R&B.

My top 10 songs

1. Arcade – Duncan Laurence
2. Lover – Taylor Swift
3. The Archer – Taylor Swift
4. Bloodline – Ariana Grande
5. La Venda – Miki Núñez
6. Fake Smile – Ariana Grande
7. Anxiety – Julia Michaels ft. Selena Gomez
8. Imagine – Ariana Grande
9. Bad Idea – Ariana Grande
10. You Need To Calm Down – Taylor Swift

I love all of these songs and artists. They all have a special place in my heart 💞.

My top podcast

The only podcast I listen to is the one of Yoga Girl – conversations from the heart. I listened 3007 minutes to her podcasts which is more than 50 hours. Her podcasts are the best. She’s the biggest inspiration in my life. Her podcast are so inspiring and full of beautiful lessons. They are about self love, mental health, trauma, healing, yoga, motherhood, relationships, life, death and everything in between. I wish to meet her one day and go to a yoga retreat in Aruba 🇦🇼 because it’s my biggest dream evah 😍💖🙏✨.

Time spent on Spotify from the last decade

Last year I listened to more music on Spotify than this year. If you see the minutes I listened to music on Spotify in 2015 until now it definitely decreased. I think in 2015 I still listened to break up music so had to use Spotify for that.

The best music of the decade

My music taste changed a lot during this decade because at the end of 2012 I experienced my first and only heartbreak 💔😢. I listened a lot to the song A drop of the ocean and other songs of Ron Pope. I also listened a lot to all the break up songs of The Script. I don’t like The Script so much anymore because they changed way too much. After those years I listened a lot to Passenger. Let her go is my favourite song of him. I loved his concert where I went to a few years ago. In 2017 the song Despacito was such a hit through the whole world. Last year I listened a lot to Sofia Ellar and I still do. I love her so much. This year was the year of Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande. My favourite song of the year is Arcade because that’s the winning Eurovision song and made so much impact on me 😍😭. I needed this song to heal my broken heart at the end of this decade. It touched my heart in so many ways.

Duncan Laurence – Arcade

My top artist of the decade

The artist of the decade for me is Passenger which is normal when you saw above that I listened to his songs a lot during this decade. Now, I listen more to up beat and happy songs but also more slower ones. It’s nice to listen to all different kinds of music styles.

Stats of 2019

Ariana, Taylor, Alfred, Julia and Aitana are my top artists of 2019 of course. I listened 7233 minutes to Spotify which is a lot. My top genre is of course pop 💃.

My decade wrapped

My top artists of this decade are Passenger, The Script, Ron Pope, Frank Hamilton and Joshua Radin. These are all artists I listened to after the break up of my first love. The next decade this will definitely change because I almost don’t listen to these artists anymore. My favourite number was definitely Let her go from Passenger. I also loved Rojitas las orejas from Fito y Fitopaldis. This is one song I listened to a lot when I liked a Mexican 🇲🇽 guy haha it was our song. I also loved the song Coastal Love from Honne. My top genre was of course Pop.

My top songs of 2019 – Playlist

You can listen to my songs of 2019 on this playlist which Spotify made for me. There are Spanish songs in them but also English songs.

Thank you all for reading this blog post. I hope you found it interesting to hear about what kind of music I listened to this year and decade 🎶. What are your favourite artists of 2019? What were your favourite songs this year? Which music genre do you listen to? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

xoxo Christina

Music of November 🎶💞

Hola lovelies 💕,

I’m not feeling well this week because I have stomach cramps and aches. I don’t eat much just rice and veggies and not too much food. I also feel sometimes a strange feeling in my throat like something is stuck there which of course can’t be true. I can’t have a stone in my throat lol but it feels like that. It comes and goes. Maybe, it would be better to go to the doctor here or in Spain. My mother gets angry when I say here I don’t feel well and don’t go to the doctor. I can understand her but I’m just so anxious always to go to the doctor 😢. I hate it. Maybe I’m just getting sick. I also feel like I have to be happy and healthy and all stuff for Christmas when I can’t. I think we have to let this unrealistic thought go and just focus on ourselves and on our loved ones this holiday time. It’s okay if Christmas isn’t perfect, if we are feeling unhappy or unwell. Do what you love to do and do what you can do. Our health always comes first 🙏. Now, I will share some good music I listened to in November. Some very good Spanish songs have been released and some good songs of Taylor Swift have been released. I’m excited to share them all with you.

Jonas Brothers – Like it’s Christmas

“You make every day feel like it’s Christmas

I mean this had to be the first one to share in this list. It’s a Christmas song 🎄✨ of the Jonas Brothers yeahhh. I love it so much. It’s a fun song and really makes me happy. It’s a great song to get in the festive mood.

Harry Styles – Watermelon sugar

LOVE THIS SONG 💖🍉. My love for Harry Styles has only grown more and more. Sign of the times is my fav song of him from his first album. This song is so good!!! His voice is just so amazing. It’s one of my fav songs of this new album of him. I will share songs of his new album the next month.

Maroon 5 – Memories

“Here’s to the ones that we got
Cheers to the wish you were here, but you’re not
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
Of everything we’ve been through
Toast to the ones here today
Toast to the ones that we lost on the way
‘Cause the drinks bring back all the memories
And the memories bring back, memories bring back you

There’s a time that I remember, when I did not know no pain
When I believed in forever, and everything would stay the same
Now my heart feel like December when somebody say your name
‘Cause I can’t reach out to call you, but I know I will one day, yeah

Everybody hurts sometimes
Everybody hurts someday, aye aye
But everything gon’ be alright
Go and raise a glass and say, aye”

This song was released in September. I heard it so many times in shops and on the radio and of course it has to come on a music list. Maroon 5 is amazing. I love them. This song is so beautiful and also emotional. We have to be thankful for the ones who are present in our lives right now and for the ones who left us. The memories of the ones who left us are always in our hearts. I’m thankful that nobody I know died this year. Remember, everything will be alright.

Pablo Alborán ft. Ava Max – Tabú

This collaboration of Pablo Alborán and Ava Max is so good! 💕 I love it. Pablo Alborán is one of my fav male artists in Spain. Ava Max is also such a good singer. It sounds so chill and makes me wanna dance. I always love Spanish artists singing together with other artists who sing in English.

Miki Núñez ft. Sofía Ellar – Coral del arrecife

This is such an amazing song! I love Sofia Ellar which is definitely one of my favourite Spanish singers. I also love Miki so much. Miki represented Spain in Eurovision this year. This is a happy song about the coral reef. It’s about the beach, my happy place. I can’t wait to go to the beach soon. I WANT SUMMER BACK 🌞😔. NOW. Cancel Winter.

Pablo López – Mama no

WOW such a beautiful song. Pablo López is such a great artist. His music is always so sensitive and so touching. This song is about that everyone critizes you but don’t know you. This is also so relatable. People judge others so easily when they don’t even know that person.

Alli Tolley – Tangled hair

“Surely there must be a life out there for me
Oh Lord, please don’t let this be the plan you have for me
‘Cause I don’t want this to be the way my story ends
I’m tired of the label and I’m tired of the pain
I’m tired of the looks up and down
To see how I’m doin’
If it’s still who I am
I’m tired of my body being seen as who I am
I’m tired of this life
I’m tired of this life
Don’t you get, I’m still a mess sometimes
Please understand
That my mind is as tangled as my hair sometimes
That my mind is as tangled as my hair
I’m not okay just yet
But I’m working on it

This is an emotional and inspiring song from Alli who left us way too early. She commited suicide 💔. Mental illnesses are the worst. I don’t know her but my pen pals knew her and were really shocked about the news. The lyrics is so relatable and she has such a lovely voice. I’m really sad that she couldn’t go on anymore. We can’t save anyone but really sometimes it’s all I want. I was sad to hear the news too 😢 She was so talented and inspiring. Such a beautiful soul. May you rest in peace.

Taylor Swift ft. Shawn Mendes – Lover remix

AAAAH THIS IS MY FAV SONG OF TAYLOR’S NEW ALBUM. I love this remix so much with Shawn Mendes 😍. The voices are so good and so beautiful together. I wish to see them both live one day. They are amazing.

Taylor Swift – Beautiful Ghosts (From The Motion Picture “Cats”)

Such a mysterious and magical song! Taylor’s voice is amazing. She writes songs so beautifully. ARTIST OF THE DECADE YASSSS MY QUEEN. She made this song for the movie Cats which is also a musical. I can’t wait to see this movie soon.

Sofia Ellar Ft. Ana – Ana (New version)

Sofia already released this song in her last album but this time she made a version with her mother. Her mother is called Ana and that’s what the song is about. I love it so much. They both sing beautifully and you can feel the love and emotion through this song. Our mothers are always there for us. I love mine so much too. I’m so grateful for all the love. I also love Spanish music so much as the language is so lovely and so sweet. I really find it a romantic language.

David Bisbal – Mucho más allá (Frozen 2)

David Bisbal is a famous singer from Spain who also got famous from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo years ago. This song is for the movie Frozen 2 in Spain ⛄. I still have to watch this beautiful movie. I love this song. His voice is amazing. In English this song is called “Into the unknown”.

Alfred García – 1016/El círculo rojo

Alfred just released a new version of his album 1016. There are 4 new songs in there and I’m ging to share my two favourites. I love him so much. He always write such good songs. All his songs are written by himself. He is a mental health warrior. He deals with anxiety and depression. Now he is doing better. He is also always such a caring and sensitive person. His songs are so beautiful. I can’t wait for the next new songs of him.

Alfred García ft. Txarango – Crema la nit

LOVE THIS SONG 😍💖. They sing about Crema La Nit which is a typical fiesta in Valencia which is during Las Fallas. I love Catalan. It’s such a cute language and it sounds so good. It makes me feel calm and happy to listen to this song. I also like Txarango as it’s a band from Catalonia.

Alfred García – Amar volar al invierno

His voice is amazing and this song also makes me feel so peaceful. He is so talented. It’s really such a lovely song. I also love his “buenas noches” which means good night in Spanish at the end of the song. It’s really cute.

Thank you all for reading this blog post and listening to these songs. I hope you liked them. What was your favourite song from my list? What was your favourite song in November? Any Christmas songs you like? 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 💕,



xoxo Christina

Music of September 🎶💗

Hey lovelies 💕,

Again another month full of beautiful music. A lot of Spanish music was released and also other amazing songs such as from Camila Cabello and OG3NE. I hope you all will like it a lot 💗.

Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus & Lana del Rey – Don’t call me angel

I really like this song!! I wished Lana del Rey would have song more in this song though but it’s a good song. The three queens singing together 👸😍. We can’t ask for more, right?!

Camila Cabello – Shameless

Camila is on fire with releasing good music! 🔥 Shameless is such a good song. Also this sentence in her lyrics “I’m tired of loving somebody that’s not mine” really can be so relatable.

Camila Cabello – Liar

Camila is not only a good singer but also a great actress. LOVE THIS SONG. I love the beat, the sound and also the videoclip is very fun to watch. It’s a very catchy song which can get into your head very easily.

Zahara – Con las ganas (Versión 2019)

This is one of my favourite Spanish songs ever. It’s so beautiful and so emotional 😭. Zahara is such a good artist. This song was already released a few years ago but she made another version this year. You can also hear it in the Spanish serie Élite which I didn’t watch yet and also in the Spanish talent show. The song is about a loved one who betrayed her. She composed this song while crying and singing in a grey room.

Sofia Ellar – Media Tinta

Wow such a beautiful and emotional song from one of my fav Spanish artists! 💗 Sofia Ellar is amazing. This song is so beautiful. I also love how she is covered with inkt as tinta in the title means inkt in Spanish. It feels so raw and vulnerable. This song is about the two Sofia’s, one is the artist and the other one is just being herself where she also show her sensitivity and sensibility.

Sofia Ellar ft. Dani Fernández – Rock’n’rolles de chiquillos

This is a beautiful version with Dani of this song from Sofia. This song is about a loved one who went away and then suddenly one day that loved one rings again at your door while you are heartbroken. Such a powerful balad. The voices are so well connected to each other and seeing Sofia sing always makes me so happy as she is just so real and honest. LOVE HER SO MUCH 💞💯.

OG3NE – First clash lovers

This three sisters from OG3NE are amazing. I always love their songs as well as this new song of the new album which comes out next month. I can’t wait. I love the harmony of their beautiful voices. I really hope I can see them live in The Netherlands soon.

Julia Michaels – If you need me

“I wish I could fix it, I wish I knew what to say
But everything feels like a lie these days
Don’t know how not to feel that way, oh
They’re reaching for reasons, it’s all gonna be okay
But everyone feels like a liar these days
Don’t know how not to feel that way

But if you need me, I’ll be right there
When you’re dreaming all your nightmares
I’ll come tackle the monsters
I’ll find where they hide in the nighttime
If you need me, I’ll be right there
When you’re happy and when you’re scared
I can still be your shoulder
I’ll be by your side even if I’m not next to you”

Such a beautiful song! Julia wrote this song inspired by the “Sorry For Your Loss” community on Facebook. We all will have to live with loosing people in our life which will break our heart 💔😢. It’s in those times that we need such a song and remind us of the people who are right there for us to overcome the bad times in life. It broke my heart when one woman said: “It’s been so difficult not to have him. Not to have him as my person anymore.”

Julia Michaels – Priest

“Sometimes, I miss you and then I remember
That I deserve much better
Cover my tattoo about you with another
And now I’m feeling much better

Oh, you broke my heart and now you want some redemption
Oh, it’s obvious that you ain’t learned your lesson
Oh, you’re owning up so you can get to heaven
Oh, but I’m not a priest, so fuck your confession”

Finally she released the music video of this catchy song. I really like it so much. Hell yeah, we deserve much better always. We have to let our exes in the past because they are there for a reason.

Amaia – Pero no pasa nada

Amaia, the winner of the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo finally released her first album. She is such a lovely and amazing singer. I always feel nostalgic when I listen to her songs. Before the release she already shared some amazing songs such as Quedará en nuestra mente, El Relámpago, y Nadie podría hacerlo. I shared these songs in this and this post. You can see my other three favourites songs from her album below.

Amaia – Quiero que vengas

AMAZING SONG! 😍👌 Amaia also created literally art in this videoclip as she recreated famous paintings in this clip. I think she has such a beautiful style of music. It isn’t mainstream. I love that she makes music which relate to being her authentically self. I wish there would be more artists like her.

Amaia – Nuevo verano

This is such a lovely song. She sings about how she loves this world but she loves him more. She loves to talk to him. She also sings about how Summer ends and that it will not come back. I feel very happy, inspired and also nostalgic when I listen to this song.

Amaia – Porque apareciste

Her voice sounds like an angel and is so beautiful 🧚‍♀️. What I love the most of this song is her voice and hearing the guitar as background. It’s just so perfect together. She sings about that she loves someone because he appeared in her life. She loves him with all his lies.

The light the heat – Your love is my home

“You are the sunrise waking my day
You are the moonlight shining my way
This is where I call home

You are the fire warming my night
With you I’ll stay till the morning light
This is where I call home
This is where I call home

Your love is like no other
Your love is where I feel alive
My safety and my shelter
Your love is my home

I love this song so much 💕. It’s so beautiful, magical and makes me feel calm ✨. I heard this song in a video of Yoga Girl on her Instagram to announce her book tour “To love and let go”. I always love to discover new amazing music. There’s so much beautiful music to be discovered.

Agoney – Black

I also know Agoney from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. His voice is beautiful and this song shows it. He sings about how this society we live in is sick and only thinks of likes. It’s just so true that we live in a fake world where it’s hard to be ourselves and be different. It feels like we have to be like everyone else is. I also really love the black atmosphere in this clip as it maches so well with this song.

Luca Hänni – Bella Bella

Luca is so cute, sings well and also dances well 💃. Luca represented Switzerland this year in Eurovision Song Contest with the song “She got me.” This is his new single and I really like it. The beat is also very nice.

Miki Núñez – Amuza

Miki from the Spanish talent show released his first album. I find his album very positive which makes me happy to dance and sing to every song of him. It’s a celebration of life 🎉. I already shared how much I loved his single “Celebrate” in this post and of course his song for Eurovision “La venda”. I will maybe go to his concert next month in Spain. I will share my other favourites songs of his album below.

Miki Núñez ft. Adrià Salas, Arnau Griso & Nil Moliner – Eterno verano

This song is only good vibes 💗✌️. I love Miki singing with these artists all together so much. It’s a song about living an endless Summer 🌞. Oh how I wish that could be possible. BRING SUMMER BACK PLEASE OKAY. At least we have this song which reminds us of the sunshine. I also can relate to the sentence he sings about how waking up early is dying. I’m so a night owl haha 🦉😴.

Miki Núñez ft. Sofia Ellar – Coral del Arrecife

My favourites Miki and Sofia sang together this amazing song. It’s a song about the coral reef. I really like the two voices combined.

Miki Núñez – Escriurem

Aaaah so beautiful!!! 😍 I love this song so much. I especially love this song because he doesn’t sing in Spanish but in Catalan. There are a lot of problems right now in this region because they want to seperate from Spain. I really hope it will be solved soon 🙏. The Spaniards and Catalans really love each other. I just think they have to dialogue and come to a peaceful solution. I don’t want to say more about this political issue as it’s hard to talk about it in Spain. I really love that Miki sings in his mother language. I really like this language and it sounds so good in this song.

Thank you all for reading this blog post and listening to some new music 🎵. Which song did you like most? What was your favourite song in September? To which artist do yo listen to? Let me know lovelies. I will speak to you all in my next blog post.

Much love 💕,

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 May 🎶

Hey lovelies 💕,

I can’t wait to share you all the good music which was released in May 🎶. I’m going to share Spanish music as well as other amazing pop/house/kpop songs.

Panic! At The Disco – High hopes

“Had to have high high hopes for a living
Shooting for the stars when I couldn’t make a killing
Didn’t have a dime but I always had a vision
Always had high high hopes
Had to have high high hopes for a living
Didn’t know how but I always had a feeling
I was gonna be that one in a million
Always had high high hopes

This song was released last year but it was just this month that I heard it on a video and also on the radio. I love Panic! At The Disco and this song is just so amazing. I just heard it again this week in Spain and was dancing like crazy at home. THIS SONG MAKES ME SO HAPPPPPY 😍💃 It gives me good vibes and what an amazing lyrics! It’s good to have dreams in life and high hopes. I truly believe we can achieve anything we want in life. The universe always has our back ✨.

Shawn Mendes – If I can’t have you

Shawn Mendes only makes good music like this song. I love this song! It has a nice beat and his voice is just beautiful. I also love the clip and it just fits perfectly to the song.

Ed Sheeran & Justin Bieber – I don’t care

“We at a party we don’t wanna be at
Tryna talk, but we can’t hear ourselves
Read your lips, I’d rather kiss ’em right back
With all these people all around
I’m crippled with anxiety
But I’m told it’s where I’m supposed to be
You know what? It’s kinda crazy ’cause I really don’t mind
And you make it better like that

This is such a catchy song! 😍 I love Ed Sheeran and Justin Bieber together. They sound very good together. I also love the random photoshop effects in the video. I also find the lyrics very relatable. I have had times that I was in a party and didn’t want to be there. Also struggling from anxiety makes it harder to enjoy a party. It’s important that they raise awareness about mental health in music because there are so many people from all different ages who listen to it. They will feel less alone when they hear more people are suffering with it.

OG3NE – Starve

“If you’re hungry for love 
Someone who’s the air in your lungs
Someone that you know you can finally trust with your scars
If you’re shaken and cold
And you need somebody to hold
And you are hungry for someone
Who take you as you are

I won’t let you starve”

OG3NE is a beautiful girl group from The Netherlands. These are three beautiful sisters. I love their songs and their beautiful harmony between these three voices. They won The voice of Holland a few years ago and also represented The Netherlands at Junior Song Contest in 2007 and Eurovision Song Contest in 2017. They ended at the 11th place. They sang the beautiful song “Lights and Shadows” which was about their sick mom who later that year died of cancer. I love their songs such as this new song. It’s an amazing song who tells us that there will always be someone who will love us for who we are.

Alvaro Soler – La libertad

I love Alvaro Soler so much! 💗 All his songs are amazing and beautiful. Libertad means freedom in Spanish. The videoclip is beautiful and this song makes me happy. It’s just such a bop. I can’t wait to see him live in concert again. His music makes me happy and it’s good music to dance on too.

Aitana – Nada sale mal

I already mentioned Aitana in other blog posts such as in this blog post. I know Aitana from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo. She became the second finalist. I’m so proud of her and how successful she is now in Spain and also in Latin America. This song is so catchy and I really like it. She is also such a sweet and beautiful girl, just look in her eyes.

Aitana – Con la miel en los labios

Aitana is releasing her new album in June which I will share next month. This is one song of her album. I love balads so much and especially when Aitana sings them. This song is BEAUTIFUL so beautiful 😍. I love the piano so much too. It’s such a delicate and honest song. She sings so pure with so much emotion. This song is about a passed love. Love changes but never extinguishes. Con la miel en los labios means with the honey on the lips. Aitana loves honey 🍯 so it’s a nice name for her new song.

Amaia – El Relámpago

I know Amaia like Aitana from the Spanish talent show Operación Triunfo too. Amaia was the one who won the talent show in 2017. I love her first single because it’s just her. This videoclip and song is her essence. Amaia is just being herself. Her voice is like an angel 😇 . I love the visuals too in the videoclip. It’s just so beautiful and magical 🧚‍♀️

Avicii ft. Agnes, Vargas & Lagola – Though love

◢◤ Avicii forever

In June the family of Tim released his postum album. He died a year ago because of suicide. I miss him so much. I’m so thankful that I went once to one of his concerts which I will never ever forget. This is one of his songs in his new album. This song is so good!!! It’s one of my fav songs now. The melody is amazing and the sound of the violins are so amazing too. It makes me emotional to listen to your music. I love you so much and I’m so thankful for your beautiful music. Your music always makes me happy and also guide me through the bad times in life. You will never be forgotten. You are a legend and your legacy is forever 💗🙏✨. I love this song and all your music so much.

All proceeds of the postum album called Tim will go to the recently established Tim Bergling Foundation, a non-profit that helps prevent mental illness and suicide. I think it’s such a beautiful way to help others in need. Mental health awareness and support is so important.

Kygo & Chelsea Cutler – Not ok

I love Kygo so much. He is definitely one of my favourite dj’s together with Avicii of course. This song is amazing and I also love the lyrics video which is simple & beautiful.

TVXQ! (MAX Solo) – Closer

So I came across this song because of being a fan of Duncan Laurence, the winner of Eurovision for The Netherlands. I wrote all about him in this and this blog post. Duncan Laurence is an amazing singer-songwriter and produced and composed together with some other producers this song. I know many of my readers who are KPOP fans will love this song too. I love it and I love to discover more nice songs! It has a nice beat and yeah music has no boundaries. Even if you don’t know the language you can sing along. Music unites people 💕🎶. That’s the power of music.

Christina Perri – Tiny victories

“Some days I look in the mirror and I think the meanest things
all the meanest things
some days I’m holding my self worth up
by a string
a string
but everyday that I don’t hide myself away
to me,
is a tiny victory”

Christina Perri is amazing. This song is so pure and beautiful. I also can relate so much to the lyrics. Self love takes a lot of strength. I also say mean things to myself and feel bad about myself. The day or moment that I’m not doing that is definitely a tiny victory. Every victory counts. We are just trying our best. Don’t be hard on yourself. We will love each other every day a bit more than yesterday. We are all in this together ALWAYS! 💪💕

Michela – Chameleon (Malta – Eurovision 2019)

I love this song so much from Michela who represented Malta for Eurovision this year. It’s a catchy song, has a nice beat and has a great melody. Michela is a great singer too and just 18 years old. I also love the tropical vibes in the music video. It just fits perfectly to the song.

Karol G – Ocean

I love this song of Karol G. Her genre is reggeaton and trap but this sounds different and I like it. She sings about how we are going to show the world what love is. It’s a sweet song. I also love the clip which is made on the beach. The ocean is my fav place on the earth 🌍🌊🏄‍♀️🌞.

Lola Indigo – New album Akelarre

I already wrote about Lola Indigo in this blog post. I also know her from Operación Triunfo. She’s such a good dancer and also a great singer. She released her first album called Akelarre which is related to the Witches’ Sabbath (the place where witches hold their meetings). My favourite songs of her are “Amor veneno”, “Game over”, “Maldición”, “Mujer bruja” and Ya no quiero ná”. Her album is awesome 😍 🧙‍♀️ I love all her songs. She left the first in the talent show and is now so successful in Spain. I wish her all she deserves. This project that she has created is just awesome.

Lola Indigo – Amor veneno

Love this song!

Lola Indigo – Game over

Such a good song and I love how she used the words Nintendo, Mario, Game boy and PlayStation! It’s awesome and so catchy.

Lola Indigo ft. Lalo Ebratt – Maldición

The clip is awesome and the song has such a nice beat!

Lola Indigo ft. Mala Rodríguez – Mujer bruja

THIS SONG IS SOOOOO GOOD! I love to see her dancing and singing. Mujer bruja means witch woman. It’s one of my favourite songs of her.

Lola Indigo – Ya no quiero ya ná

This is my favourite song of Mimi (Lola Indigo). ASDFGHJKL it’s just the best! This was also her first single. The song is amazing, she dances so good and omg it’s just so good!!! Ya no quiero yá means I don’t want anything anymore. She also sings I’m not your baby, boy.

Thank you all for reading this blog post and listening to my music list of May 🎶🎧🎼. Which song was your favourite? What is your favourite artist? Which song did you listen to in May? Let me know in the comments 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.

IMG_20181228_221316.jpg

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.
