I USUALLY WAKE UP AT…
To be honest, it’s really Depend on the day I like to sleep and rest enough. A day without a great sleep is a missing day as we can’t live it with the proper intensity… So, if I have early shooting, I wake up before even 6 am another day it really varies but most important to make sure I take a good sleep far away from what time wake up as every day Is different J.
I WOULD NEVER LEAVE MY HOME WITHOUT…
Nowadays, due to the current situation, I would never leave my home without a face mask for sure! And I would add to this “must-have”: my phone, lip balm, and a bottle of water. I like to always feel hydrated, in and out plus our phones that are like a 3 in 1!
MY BEAUTY ESSENTIALS INCLUDE…
No secrets with beauty essentials: eat clean, discover and get to know which food feels better to you, peace of mind (meditation) and a happy heart are my essentials beauty kits.
I would also add to those essentials the Eucerin cosmetics (I really love their variety: vitaminCBooster, acid hyaluronic spray and serum) and as I said before: Rest enough!
MY BIGGEST FASHION PET PEEVE IS…
In general, my biggest fashion pet peeve is mixing winter fabrics with summer ones. I don’t find it comfortable at all and I don’t feel it really matches.
MY FAVOURITE TRAVEL SNACK…
PROTEIN COOKIES / BARS, especially right now I’m in love with the
“Lenny and Larry’s cookies chips” (chocolate flavor, of course!).
IF MY DAYS HAD ONE EXTRA HOUR…
If my days had one extra hour I would meditate more and take extra time to relax and listen to myself and for sure to get in touch with everyone I love around the globe and I can’t always contact them.
ON A TYPICAL SATURDAY NIGHT, I…
I usually watch Netflix (or at least this year, more than ever ha-ha), also I like to have different dinners of what I eat the rest of the week. I like to enjoy Saturday nights with my beloved ones.
THE ARTICLE OF CLOTHING I’M CURRENTLY WEARING MOST…
Sports, I love how the sector industry has been developed. It’s not only how comfy I feel when I wear sports clothes but also how beautiful and cute, we can look nowadays wearing them. I’m especially addicted to sneakers!
MY BIGGEST FASHION REGRET IS…
I don’t have a big fashion regret ha-ha, but to be honest, when I was a child, I kept a little spinate the first time I got communion because I wore a beautiful dress chosen by my grandmother, but I preferred another one.
I can’t complain as her choice was very elegant and classic, but I still wanted another dress (ha-ha-ha).
WHEN I’M STRESSED I…
I might eat chocolates and sweets in general, that I might don’t eat the food really much all day. My mother also says that she knows when I’m stressed because I keep scratching my hair.
WHAT I LOVE MOST ABOUT MY COUNTRY IS…
Honestly, what I really love about Spain is the geographical situation as it’s great any time I take a flight either to America or the Middle East, for example.
We have incredible weather all the year and many different city options to visit and live and I also love their beautiful Islands and Beaches.
And of course, the Spanish breakfast and food!
All of those are equal for me! love, love, love!
THE BEST ADVICE I EVER GOT…
“Focus on improvement, never in changes”.
Change is really hard, but we can always start by improving ourselves day by day, later changes will come J
If I could meet anyone living or dead, it would be…
Dead: Louis Hay, she was such an inspiration human for this world, and she helped so many people to live happier, healthier and she guided so many others to improve and even heal their diseases.
With meditation, positive thoughts and due to the hard times she went through, she developed so much knowledge and she’s been an inspiration for overcoming.
My favorite place to shop is…
My favorite place to shop if referring to a City for sure Dubai, Tokyo, London, Paris… I Think big cities in general when we’re talking about high-end brands, otherwise for some other stuff I like to buy things when I’m in my country in my town Orihuela, Torrevieja and Alicante capital because of this way I support local shops and small businesses.
