I'm an extremely organized traveler. A few days before the trip I make a schedule including all the places I want to visit, even restaurants where I want to eat to try the local cuisine. Not only do I look for monuments but also cute little shops and picturesque sites to immortalize with my camera. When planning my trip to Switzerland there was a place mentioned in every single website or travel guide I browsed: Luzern.

I have curly hair. It's also thin, quite dry but, fortunately, not frizzy. I embrace my natural curls the day I wash my hair. They are perfectly formed, voluminous and shiny. The problem comes the following day, after sleeping it looks much worse. Curls are flat and not shiny any more. And that short new hair looks crazy, every hair going in a different direction and impossible to tame. You may think the solution would be washing it every day but that is not good for your hair. Besides, as I said it's dry so it doesn't get dirty easily. I actually only need to wash my hair twice a week (I do shower every day though ;)).

Custard-Battered French Toast with Hazelnuts & Strawberries recipe

There are some recipes that I only make once a year. Why? I don't really know. Probably because I enjoy eating them even more. It makes the recipe more special. It's like Christmas treats. You only eat them at that time of the year. If you ate them now it'd feel like cheating, right? Such is the case of French toast. In Spain it's very typical to have it around Easter time. There are many different versions but we always like to pair them with a hot cup of chocolate.

Happy Easter, my dear readers! I hope you are enjoying this holiday with your loved ones.
As you know, Easter is one of the most important holidays on the Christian calendar. The New Testament of the Bible says that three days after Jesus was crucified, he rose from the dead. Jesus’s resurrection is the foundation of the Christian faith, symbolizing spiritual resurrection and God’s forgiveness of sin. Since Spain is a Catholic country, this is an important holiday for us. Streets are filled with religious processions from Thrusday through Easter Sunday and some people do not eat meat which is also part of the tradition.

One year ago I decided I needed a creative outlet and so I created this blog. Since then I've been putting a huge amount of passion and effort to it. Every week I work really hard to create original and quality content while at the same time I share with you my passions, my hopes and fears. I'm a perfectionist so I'm always looking for ways to improve my blog.
