Happy



Today, in Spain, we all go back to work after the Christmas holidays. And, not only that, today is my birthday. I'm 24 today (what?!) and I can't help but write a post about something I've been reflecting on for a while now.

Perhaps you find this is a strange post for you to come back to my blog. Perhaps it is a strange post.

One day in London


I'm finally back from my weekend getaway in England. As a Spaniard, it's probably very weird that I'm utterly fascinated by the UK since I live in the Mediterranean - but England definitely has something special. As Christmas is my probably my favourite holiday, I knew I had to get there somehow to feel that Christmas vibe. I arrived on Friday to Gatwick Airport and travelled to Brighton until Saturday evening and then I took a coach to London to spend my last days there.

Back for good


... Man. My last post was in January and it has made me think a lot. My laptop was already acting up then and I was feeling very frustrated about it. It kept taking me ages to download things and load websites because my Internet was very slow. Somewhere in the middle of that, I did my exams and then I started another semester and I drowned in a pool of stress (and probably my own tears, too). I started ignoring my blog, my hobbies and focusing on uni and my job. It was awful, I'm not going to lie. Somehow it's May now and exam season is lurking and I'm about to start my internship for the police as a translator; and my Internet wasn't cooperating, and I needed to study, and... and...

72 hours in London


I hold the whole UK in a very special part of my heart. If you've been here for a while, you know I tasted England when I was in London a few years ago and then I fell in love with more regions during my ERASMUS experience in Sheffield. I travelled everywhere I could - although I'm still missing out on Wales! - and I knew somehow I would go back.

Introducing Happiness Boutique


Happy New Year!... Three weeks later. And also hello again. My unannounced four month hiatus has come to an end. I never said I would go on a hiatus, but I needed one. I was working and studying at the same time and I felt like I couldn't deal with everything at the same time. Last year I went through the same thing and now I'm back on it again.

At the end of the year I was contacted by Happiness Boutique - who have had an immense patience waiting for this post and my hiatus to end - to review a necklace of my choice and my decision was very, very hard.
