Hello there everybody! Due to the finals I have after Christmas holiday this is probably gonna be one of my lasts posts until January the 20th, when i finish my exams. I’m literally gonna spend the next few weeks locked in my room revising like there is no tomorrow, sounds fun doesn’t it? Anyway, I’ll stop rambling now. Today’s post is going to be about my favourite food to eat during the holidays. I don’t know what I love more, Christmas food or Christmas presents. Here are my favourite foods:
TURRÓN. This is a Spanish food. It’s made out of almonds, honey and sugar and it tastes like heaven. It’s something a tiny bit similar to marzipan but better. If you don’t like it I’m not sure we can be friends.
MARZIPAN. To be fair, I love anything that tastes like almonds ot has almonds in it so obviously I like marzipan as well. I like the ones that are tinted and have cute shapes!
CHURROS WITH CHOCOLATE. Oh my godness, if heaven exists then I think I’ve found it. Churros themselves are amazing but when you dip them in hot thick chocolate, oh boy! It tastes like unicorns and rainbows!
MASHED POTATOES. I used to eat mashed potatoes quite often when I lived at home but now I only get to eat them when I go back for the holidays and we normally have it on either Christmas’ Eve or Christmas Day.
CHRISTMAS SOUP. I’m pretty sure this is a Spanish thing as well. It’s basically soup with weirdly shaped pasta that’s stuffed with meat. I don’t know, we’re weird.
And these are my favourite foods to eat during the holidays! What are yours?

GIVE YOURSELF SOME BREAKS. Even if you are tight on time and you're getting stressed out give yourself some days off, ideal days are days like Christmas, New Year's Eve, etc.
START EARLY. If you have finals as soon as you go back to school try starting to revise a few weeks before instead of the 4 days before your first day as even thought you will have enjoyed your holidays you will regret it when you see the amount of notes you have to memorise in 24hours.

Hello guys! It’s time for another post about my recent obsessions. I’ve been quite busy lately with uni but of course I’ve still managed to obsessed over too many things.
1.Checked scarfs. I bought a green and black checked scarf and my mom gave me hers (thank you mommy) when she came visit me so now I have two scarfs that I literally wear at least 5 times a week. I am not ashamed.
2.Brandy Melville. I've always heard people rave about Brandy and how amazing the clothes were. However, I never got to buy anything other than a bralet as jumpers are a bit overpriced. About month ago I went there with my mom and she decided to make me happy and bought me a jumper and a cropped long-sleeved t-shirt. These are my most-worn items now, they are so comfy and warm but at the same time cute. One word: A-MA-ZING.
3.Christmas Songs. OF COURSE. I mean, it’s almost Christmas so why would I not listen to Christmas songs? I made a playlist on Spotify with all the Christmas songs I like and it’s all I’ve been listening to whilst doing my homework since early November. Again, I am not ashamed.
4. Snow. Okay this is a weird on. I split my time between London and the Balearic Islands and it doesn’t snow in neither of those places so how could I even be obsessed with snow? Well, the Christmas season is here and I WANT SNOW. If I have to cope with low temperatures here in London the least I could get is some nice snow… right? Well, apparently, mother nature disagrees with me.
5. Christmas lights. I am pretty sure there are very few places as beautiful as London in Christmas. Every time I go to Oxford Street (which is more often than I should) I am overwhelmed by the beauty of all the lights and decorations, it’s so festive and pretty!

Hello guys! Christmas is quickly approaching and with it all the family events and dinners. Everyone wants to look their best during the holidays which is why I put together some outfits to give you some ideas. These are all rather fancy even though some of them could be easily dressed down. I'm probably going to do another post with more casual outfits so if heels and fancy dresses aren't for you keep an eye on the blog for the upcoming post!
Shorts: New Look
Wedges: Fashion Union
Top: Matthew Williamson
Skirt: House of Fraser

Hello guys! Today’s blogmas post is as christmassy as it can get, I’ve been out and about in London quite a lot recently and of course I’ve taken millions of pictures.

Hey people! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while you will have realised how much I love nail polishes. My nails are almost always painted, mainly in winter when nail polishes last considerably longer on my nails as I don’t go to the pool/beach. Even if it’s not officially winter, it doesn’t feel like fall anymore so I thought I would share with you all my favourite nail polishes for winter and the holidays.
1010N by Manhattan. Oh the good old black nail polish. My first ever nail polish was black (obviously it wasn’t this one) and I remember struggling so much to make my nails look decent but I loved it and that’s how my obsession with nail polishes started.
NUDE by Barry M. I wear this colour all year round but I wear much more often in winter. In summer I don’t really wear make up and my outfits tend to be simpler so I like having bold nails. However, in winter I wear a full make up look and more accessorised outfits so I like having nude nails, I think it looks very sleek.
MIDNIGHT SPARKLES by Tanya Burr. I obviously bought this one because it’s Tanya’s but the colour is so lovely. I must say, though, the quality is not great and I think it’s quite overpriced. Anyway, I love the colour and I wear it very often!
WATERMELON by Barry M. This is a lovely dark green-blue colour. It is from the Gelly Hi-Shine range so it kind of look like gel nails and it lasts on a bit longer than the otherr Barry M polishes.
What's your favourite shade for the holiday season?

Hello guys! Correct me if I’m wrong but everyone loves drinking a good hot chocolate in winter, and even more when it’s all Christmassy and festive outside. Over the years (well more like 2 years) I’ve tried to nail my recipe to make the best hot chocolate ever and I think I’ve found it. WARNING: this is definitely not a healthy recipe, in fact, it’s anything but healthy)
What you’ll need
CADBURY’S HIGHLIGHTS COCOA POWDER
How to do it
- Heat up your milk until it’s quite hot not just warm.
- Add 2tsp of the cocoa powder
- Add 1tsp of honey, a tsp of nutella and a dash of cinnamon. Stir until the nutella and honey have melted and are completely mixed.
- Put as many marshmallows as you like on top (you could use whipped cream as well, but I’m not a fan of it so that’s why I don’t use it) and enjoy your work of art!
