It has been a year since I was packing and unpacking stuff from and old home to a new one. I have changed beds four times in the last four years. Maybe it’s my lucky number.
It was not a pleasant experience searching for a new apartment here in Madrid: for some reason everything we saw was either too old or too expensive, until we found the current place where I’m now typing from.
We were supposed to be in Barcelona right now but a turn of events made us reconsider our decision. We are still recording our album here and it was kind of precipitated to leave it mid way and move to another city.
So here I am posting from our new home. I am proud to say I packed and unpacked everything in three days. I cleaned and organized pretty much like the little OCD freak I am in one day and oh… you have no idea how excited I am to start decorating. I will try to find a balance between that and the recording.
As soon as I am settled in I will show more before and after pics!
P.S: Nina is absolutely in love with the big balcony.
I just want to take a minute and thank my landlord for having an air conditioning system in her apartment. I am not kidding when I say that I would probably melt if it wasn’t for it. But that being said, this summer has been packed with tons of activities and lovely events!
1) Finding the juiciest cherries in the world
2) Precious moments with my sister Stefi who came to visit alongside my parents and Nina
3) Recording the new album with Jimmy, this project is very personal and I am loving every step of the way
4) Late night games: my dad crushing us all in Scala 40
5) This two girls coming to visit! My mafia: Valentina and Carola. We went to school together and every time we meet is pure fun!
6) In this pic my dear friend’s Maria T wedding and next to her my fun girl Luisa! Still can’t believe this day, we had such an incredible time!
For me sneakers have always been all about sports; no sneakers with an outfit other than shorts or gym pants. When I moved to Spain last year I brought with me all my fabulous high heels just to have them sit there in my closet because I was walking all day, everyday, everywhere I went.
I needed chic comfortable footwear.
So now I use high heels in specific occasions and on a daily basis I’ve learned that flat shoes go a long way. I see everybody in the city wearing sneakers with jeans, tights and even dresses. When I tried to pull it off, I felt so weird and strange that it didn’t work for me then. The problem was I was trying too hard and the point is to just let it be.
It’s been almost a year since I left my old home in Venezuela and moved to Spain. I remember all the stress and chaotic moments involved. Everything has changed so much since last year, that I have no words to describe how blessed and grateful I am to be here.
This last six months have been a real challenge. We were flirting with the idea of moving to Barcelona because we got a real good offer to sign our music and make some more videos there, but Madrid was holding my hand really tightly and I felt I did not give this amazing city a real chance. Jimmy and I discussed this back and forth until a lovely event made our decision easier: we found an amazing producer and started recording our new album right away.
After searching like crazy for a new apartment, we finally found one with an elevator and a big balcony. Late this month we will move and I can’t wait to show you guys the before and after of the place.
So don’t think for a second I have forgotten about my blog and all of you who make it possible. The Golden Limoncello is getting tons of new posts and lots of giggles and smiles.
