My Christmas To-Do List | Blogmas Day 1


… And the countdown beings! 🎄🎅

Can you believe it’s the 1st of December already!? I certainly can’t. Time seems to pass by faster every year!

This year, I’ve decided to do Blogmas! “What is Blogmas?”, you may ask. Well, it’s a blogging feature where you have to share (or try to) a new blog post every day from December 1st to December 25th. These posts, of course, have to be Christmas themed.

Today I’m sharing with you my very first Blogmas post ever! And it’s a short list about what I’m planning to do during this holiday season.

Cuenca, Ecuador | 2016

Park Abdón Calderón and the New Cathedral behind it.

Hello, everyone!

A couple of weeks ago, my family and I went to the beautiful city of Cuenca, in the Highland of Ecuador. And what a better day to share my post about that trip than today: the day of Cuenca’s Independence.

Joyful Sundays #10


Hello, everyone!

My second week of Uni is over and, even though I had some blue days, there were also many things that illuminated my days!

I think that, whenever life gets tough, we need to focus more on the positive things, don’t you agree? Even if it’s just that you listened to your favorite song on repeat or that you finally ate something you’ve been craving for a long time. It’s the little things that we should also learn to enjoy.

My Favorite Disney Channel Halloween Movies

Hello, everyone!

With Halloween just around the corner, I can’t stop thinking about all these Halloween movies I used to watch when I was a kid. I remember I even got scared while watching Hocus Pocus, can you believe that!?

But easily-scared Salha is long gone, and now I can watch actual scary movies without even flinching *feels proud*. Well… That can be a bit creepy depending on how you feel about scary movies haha.

Aaanyway, here are some of my favorite Disney Channel Halloween movies!

1.- Halloweentown


After 13-year-old Marnie fights with her mom about not being allowed to celebrate Halloween for unknown reasons, her grandmother, who she rarely gets to see, arrives for her annual visit on Halloween night. But when Marnie overhears her grandmother and mother talking about the fact that she's a witch, she and her siblings follow their grandmother to her bus headed for Halloweentown. After their arrival, they show up at their grandmother's house and try and help her solve the mysterious disappearances that have happened recently. They come to find that Halloweentown's mayor, Kalabar, is responsible, and they use their powers (along with their mother's, who eventually comes to her senses) to defeat him.

I remember I used to watch this film over and over, and I imagined how cool it would be to have a witch grandma like Aggie.

Joyful Sundays #9



Hello, everyone!

My apologies for not posting a Joyful Sundays last week. It was my last week of vacation and I was super busy with signing up for classes and all that stuff. There was a problem with the registering system and now my Uni schedule is awful haha

That being said, today’s Joyful Sunday will feature the things that brought me joy during the past two weeks.

These are the things that brought me lots of joy during these past two weeks:


1.- I began reading All The Light We Cannot See, by Anthony Doerr. This is the biggest book on my shelves! My friend and I call it “The Monster” *laughs*. I’m still reading it, and I’m really enjoying it.


2.- Re-arranging family photo-albums. I have in my possession two huge crates filled with photos, and we also have a lot of albums in my house. My plan was to re-arrange them all and see if we need more albums, but I kind of failed at it and ended up just smiling at the pictures and remembering the moments.


3.- Baking strawberry-filled chocolate cupcakes! According to the judges (a.k.a my parents), they were delicious, but they didn’t look like I wanted them to look. Maybe it was because I mixed the strawberries with sugar, and that caused them to turn into some kind of jelly. I’ll make them again, and share the recipe with you, guys!

Ecuador: A Food Guide | SFATW

Hello, everyone!

Today I’m sharing with you my second post for Marie’s feature: Souvenirs From Across The World.

As you may have read in the title, this post will be all about Ecuadorian food! I’ll be separating this post in four categories: breakfast, main dishes, desserts, and drinks.

BREAKFAST


Bolón de verde con queso y/o chicharrón: this is made with fried and mashed green plantains, and you can add cheese or fried pork chops or both! There’s also a variation that’s made with ripe plantains, and it’s softer and sweeter, and I like it more than when it’s made with green plantains.
