Hello everyone! I'm Cristina, an English Studies student from Mallorca, Spain. One of my hobbies is writing and I also love procrastinating so much that probably that's one of the reasons behind the creation of this blog. Besides studying, I'm also a part-time teacher in a language academy and, of course, I run this blog. 

Which camera(s) did you use for your pics?: I'm very passionate about photography, so this blog is very helpful for me in a very personal way as I think I can use it to improve my skills. When I started this blog, I was using my old Samsung Galaxy Ace phone camera, then I used my best friend's digital camera + iPhone... yes! Believe it or not! One Summer I bought a Nikon Coolpix L330 and I started snapping with that wonderful camera. It taught me that you don't need a DSLR to run a good blog or take good pictures. Nevertheless, that never stopped me from getting my Nikon D3200 camera - which I had always wanted! Additionally, I'd like to say that some pictures from this blog may have been taken with my GoPro Hero HD. 

Which software did you use for...?: Most of my pictures are edited with Photoshop. It's not like I do a big thing to them, I just play around the exposure to make them look clearer if the light is not too good. I use Photoshop for everything, from editing pictures to the smallest graphics you can see in this website.

MY CUP OF TEA started in February 2014 as a small personal project and even New Year resolution to prove myself that I can actually keep up with a blog, as most of the times I would stop writing. So far so good, don't you think? The reason behind the name is because 1) I love tea and 2) whatever I post here is my cup of tea. Easy as that!

This is my beauty and lifestyle blog with a bit of fashion and pop culture sometimes. I write my own opinions on products and different topics and you can read more about it on my disclaimer page. I really hope that you enjoy your time here and you read my posts with a cup of your favourite beverage next to you.
