20 FACTS ABOUT ME

Hi, I hope you're having a fantastic bank holiday! I've had this pass week free from UNI lectures so this time off has been a blessing for me. In fact, I've done lots of things which included reading, revising, doing a huge amount of makeup looks and getting work and blogging stuff done. 

I found a few pictures of myself, which were taken a while a go, so I think this is the perfect timing for you guys to get to know me. I've been collecting different facts about me for a few weeks, which could be interesting for you (or not 😈 ), so there you go peeps: 

  1. Obsessions. Before shutting down or putting my laptop to sleep I always close all the apps I’ve been using.
  2. I am a very very very messy person. I tidy my room once a week (usually every Sunday morning) and it’s already a mess after a few hours. I'm a pain in the ass to live with.
  3. I can’t sleep with socks on. It makes me a bit anxious and it feels like somebody is touching my toes which I also despise. I hate when people touch my feet to tickle me.
  4. I really really suffer when people play with my cheeks. I mean, you could say I’ve got chubby cheeks but I absolutely hate it when people touch my face. It’s like they’re invading my personal space so if you're reading and you're a friend, you know 😌 .
  5. I’m from Spain and I live in Tenerife, Canary Islands. I love where I live but it isn’t sunny and it isn't also like paradise always. In fact, it’s about to rain as I’m writing this post. Even though in winter the weather is miserable, summer here is pretty amazing so it's a win- win situation.
  6. I can’t cook for sh*t 👀 . Is not that I don’t give it a try, it’s just that I’m clumsy and I don’t really enjoy cooking. The only things I can “cook” include a microwave and rice.
  7. I’m quite obsessed with vinegar. Have you ever tried rice with a few drops of vinegar? It’s pretty amazing.
  8. I am a very bad eater. To be honest, I’m a picky eater. Pasta, meat and eggs are some of things that aren’t included in my meal plan.
  9. I hardly ever say NO. I like doing lots of things and also trying new ones and I think that’s why I find it so hard to say no. 
  10. I tend to splash out on things a lot, mainly makeup. It’s not that I spend for spending’s sake but I do love a good shopping spree.
  11. Makeup is one of my hobbies (you can check it out in this post 😏 ). I spend money on makeup because I really like it and I do it for me. I don’t really care about what everyone thinks. 
  12. Politics. I love having long chats or debates about politics. Actually, politics is one of the topics I would really like to work on when I finish my degree.
  13. UNI. I’m currently taking a degree in Journalism and Media. When I finish my degree I plan on taking another one, International Relationships maybe.
  14. I’m a bookworm! I can read a hundred pages book all in one day. When I like a book I usually get so into it that I can’t leave it until I finish it.
  15. The Shadowhunters series (the Netflix one 😁 ) are my guilty pleasure. Don’t get me wrong, the books are incredible and Cassandra Clare has done an amazing job (specially on book 5 🙅 🏼👊🏻. It was magnificent) but the Netflix show is so bad! I’d never thought a TV programme could be that bad but trust me this one is vile (soz Netflix, I do love you but you know it’s vile 😈). Even though it makes me cringe, I just can’t stop watching it. I think it’s because I never imagined the characters being so fake and also this series is not loyal to the book at all!.
  16. I was once a diet coke addict. I used to drink diet coke every time I got a chance and it eventually make me sick so I decided to quit diet coke for good. I’m actually happy about quitting fizzy drinks because I drink lots of water now and my skin has never looked this good.
  17. I never have sugar with my tea or coffee. I usually take my coffee with stevia or saccharine but I never have sugar nor stevia or saccharine with my tea. 
  18. I don't believe in bucket lists. A few months ago, I posted a little something about bucket lists and the effect they have on me (visit the link, 😉 😏 ). I'm so scared of death that the idea of jotting down a list of the things you want to do before dying makes me go mad.
  19. Confidence. My confidence levels are not so high (ugh 😖 ) and it was a huge step for me to post pictures of myself in this little cave of mine. Two weeks ago, my makeup bag essentials post went live and in it you can find the first pictures I decided to shared. It has been amazing for me. This post has been one of the most popular ones in the blog and the reception has also been pretty amazing, so I'm still amazed by all of it. Posting my pics has helped me improve my confidence levels (they're still pretty low but you know, step by step my little sunshines👣 ).
  20. I don't own a bucket list but I do have a dream (well a few of them 👸🏼 ). Right now my biggest dream is to visit Machu Picchu. I'd love to go on a big holiday to Peru.
