Day 2: Home and huge ice creams!

Today was a very relaxed day. We stayed at home for most of it and I felt appreciating it a lot. Knowing you can just sit or lay down with no schedules or appointments for at least one week.

My parents came over for lunch, hubby and I watched anime, we went shopping with a friend and I had the biggest and yummiest ice cream I’ve ever had! We also watched a horror movie called Hush at the end of the day and it left me with a weird feeling. So I decided to come write and share my photo of my One Post a Day Challenge Part 2 and see if I could relax again (it’s not working really well).

How’s your week coming along?

If you have been following my blog for over a year now, you must have seen my One Post a Day Challenge from last year! During my one week off from work in July I decided to do one post a day during seven days to work on creativity, keep a record of my vacations and have fun!

I saw one of those post photos a few days ago I decided I wanted to do it again this year! So this is the first post of the challenge!

Today I went to the beach with my parents, then we we browsed a cute store near their house and they invited me to have dinner! It was the perfect start of my vacations! Hope you have a great week! And if you decide to do a challenge like this one sometime, let me know! I would love to follow you!

All of these photos were taken with my phone a One Plus 3 and then developed using Lightroom 3.

It’s Not This Time of Year Without…

It’s not this time of the year without a Christmas tree.

I’ve never had a Christmas without a Christmas tree. My mom always made sure we had a beautiful tree, wether it was small, big, real or plastic and I carried that with me when I moved to Barcelona. We’ve been here for three years now and I’ve put up a tree every year!

I was just telling hubby the other day about it. Back at my home in Venezuela, I remember grabbing my iPod, a blanket and laying on the cozy couch to watch the fireplace and our Christmas tree for hours while listening to music. It was one of my favorite things to do.

I love putting up the Christmas tree! It’s a happy day for me and It definitely wouldn’t feel this time of the year without one :).

 

Happy New Year!

Happy new and amazing year to everyone! 😀 So, yes,  in my first year as a blogger I couldn’t pass by to write a new year post. So here it is. For me, 2013 was equal to change. With all my heart I can assure that 2013 has been the most eventful year so far. So many good and bad things happened, I feel it just couldn’t agree wether it wanted to be a good year or a bad one.

However, today I was walking trough the beautiful streets of Barcelona with hubby and my brother, in a way I can say is a very different one of wich I was used to spend January first, and we started a new tradition. I began to ask them questions about different subjects as a way to make a fun recap about our year. I would very much like to share mines with all of you! This is how we started:

Best movie: The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. This was a unanimous decision.

Best videogame: Tomb Raider. I loved this game, I would play it a thousand times again.

Best animé: Inuyasha. I laughed, I cried, I was scared, I was happy. My favorite so far.

Food of the year: Sushi. Yes! Until this year I didn’t eat sushi, I do now, and i’m addicted to it.

Song of the year: AoD I Just Played Jax. I can say this song stuck to me all year and I don’t think is going to go away any time soon.

Dissaster of the year: My grandpa passing away.

Best trip: Going to the snowed mountains.

Event of the year: Getting married. What more can I say? 🙂

Purchase of the year: “Two tickets to Barcelona, Spain, please”.

Season of the year: Winter. It’s Christmas, my parents came to visit, we are all together, and I couldn’t ask for more.

And, as usual, my faithful and inseparable friend, my camera, was with me all along. So here are some of my favorite photos I took in 2013. Hope you like them!

It was very hard to choose from so many. Specially when there are so many memories attached to everyone of them. 2013 Is hard for me to define, maybe different is the word. Hope you have an amazing 2014 and keep on blogging!
