At least I'll have something to add to my cv ✿ Went to the beach with my family and we tanned and laughed and laughed and my sister sang One Direction songs and it was a laughfest ✿
And here I'll share the last batch of details. After this, it will all be about my grey journal, which I began a couple of weeks ago.
Gratitude lists, as always :)
It was nice experimenting with a spiral spine. I thought I'd hate it much more, but it didn't bother me. What did bother me was the atrocious cover. I tried covering a lot of the ugliness with washy tape, but still... I'm not pleased. The pages of this journal, however, are extraordinary. The best I've ever worked with.
Now say hello to the grey fake-moleskine type journal that I've been working on for the last two weeks. It cost me 1'99€. The pages are not as great as those in the blue notebook, but oh well. I can work with anything ;)
I'll make anything work for me.

★ The love I feel for him. My chest expands and my feet tingle every time I think of this magnificent creature.
★ Warm weather.
★ Adventures in the fields with C one hot evening.
★ Being able to buy a few items from my etsy wishlist. Investing in eco-friendly businesses gives you the best feeling because you are both caring for the planet and also for another hard-working human being who needs to pay rent and food.
★ A gorgeous and peaceful walk with Ron one afternoon.
★ Exploring the fields near the cemetery one warm evening.
★ When he came looking for me to the forest without me knowing it. There he was walking toward me with his back to the sun which made him look like a sombre figure in the distance. "You came looking for me???!!! But how did you expect to find me in the forest?" "I dunno, I figured I'd just get lucky and find you" yeah I love this man.
★ Sex in new places.
★ Baking gluten-free cupcakes. It's the baking more than the end product that I enjoy.
★ Eating chocolate croissants alone watching the sunset.
★ Spent a fun day in Barcelona city and came back home pumped wanting to eat up the world.
★ Lavender essential oil. I'm obsessed.
★ Catching flash sales from eco clothing stores and stocking up for 1/3 of the price.
★ Watermelon!!! I've missed you glorious fruits of heaven!
★ Hilarious talk shows.
★ Watching Practical Magic in bed and jotting down ideas in my journal.
★ Having two new ideas for journals I want to make. So excited!
★ Bridget Jones movies & me in bed. Always Bridget oh Bridget my huge comfort during ugly days and the source of intense belly pain due to life-threatening laughter.
★ Purple thistle. I'm so in love. If I could somehow transport some to my garden I would.
★ Went to the cinema with mom. I hadn't experienced the cosy darkness and popcorn smell in a long while.
★ Lovely emails from blog readers. Hellooooo! Saludos :)
★ The Theory of Everything. I didn't expect to cry. I did. So much.
★ Found washy tape for super cheap. I had never been able to afford any, and now I have eight rolls woah. I'm obsessed.
★ Raw almond milk. I'm obsessed with so many things xD
★ Old school blogging. I like to keep my blog more abstract than the average blogs. Everyone is so focused on "deliver deliver deliver! Be of service! You must help people otherwise you're nothing!" What the fuck is this? There's this obsession with external focus that puts me off about other blogs. I miss the more abstract side of blogging, where you blog because it's a personal creative project, and if you happen to help people along the way, well that's fantastic! But I'm not here to play games or try to please an audience. I'm not into structures, I tried and felt dead inside. I need the whimsy in my life. I miss when people wrote random paragraphs about their everyday life, and when they wrote poetry, and when they shared their drawings made during uni classes, and when they took blurry photos of rain fields and when they used more glitter and everything felt softer and dream-like.
