I am so excited today! No, not because it’s Monday (even though I told you to embrace Monday on my last post, it’s not my favorite day either!) but because today is the first day of my Blogging 101 course and I’m really looking forward to improving my blogging skills, especially because I’m so new to this. Now the first assignment is to write a post about who I am and why I’m here. So, here goes.
My name is Lara and I’m from a tiny country called Cape Verde (tiny in size – huge in soul!). Most of you have probably never heard of it but it consists of 10 islands located off the West coast of Africa. I currently live in Brighton, UK (such a cute and open-minded place) and am absolutely loving the experience! Anyway, since I don’t want to bore you with my life story I’ve decided to answer a few questions from the Non-Blogmopolitan quiz and hope you get more of an understanding of who I am that way.
1. Something you will…
Refuse to do for the rest of your life: let fear overcome my ability or will to do something. I have avoided doing things in the past because of my lack of confidence and realized it is just a waste of time. Life is too short!
Always do forever: Read. I love reading and cannot imagine a world without books. As George RR Martin said, “A reader lives a thousand lives before he dies. The man who never reads lives only one”
2. Something you think is…
Certifiably disgusting: Spiders. I am terrified of them and dream of a world without them. I apologize to all the spider lovers out there!
Absolutely amazing: the smell of Spring ♥ Warm lattes ♥ Cozy slippers ♥ sleeping ♥ to travel ♥ pastel colors ♥ handbags ♥ watches ♥ friendship ♥ true love ♥ a good movie ♥ a good book ♥ lipstick ♥ hugs ♥ an honest smile ♥ road trips ♥ warm baths ♥ a stolen kiss ♥ Life ♥
3. A taste you…
Can’t stand: Mince pies. I can’t explain why but I tried a mince pie when I moved to England and I just cannot stand them. Maybe I tried a bad one but it was definitely not a good experience.
Can’t get enough of: Skinny sugar free caramel Latte. I know I’ve said this before but I just love them!
4. A song you always…
Turn off immediately: Magic – Rude. Sorry but I just cannot deal with that song.
Belt out the lyrics to: Thinking out loud – Ed sheeran. Such a cute song!
5. Why am I here? To be able to look back and know that I have lived! The idea of writing a blog occurred to me a few years back but I never acted on it. I’ve always had journals but used them mostly to plan and ended up not writing as much as I’d like to. I didn’t make time to write. With this blog, I do. I want to document what matters to me and share it with you. Also, I love writing and believe it is one of the best hobbies one could have. And I’m having so much fun!
Have a great Monday!
Lots of love,
