Since this weekend I am going to Barcelona to see The Cure (my favorite band!!!) I found myself today looking for things to see in this great city. I was there only once many years ago and I remember I loved it even though I didn’t have time to see everything I wanted to see.
So I am preparing a list of the things I must see, but with not many things as I honestly don’t like to pack my trips with a thousand visits. I prefer to stroll and take in the general atmosphere of the city.
For the last few days, we have had in Dublin really cold temperatures compared to what we have been having for the last few months. It is normal considering we are approaching December but somehow you get used to the weather being mild here.
As the days get colder, it is good to remember the things that one like to do when it is this cold that you can’t do in any other time of the year, this way you make sure you are making the most of it.
I wanted to write a post about this almost since I moved to Dublin and noticed some fantastic street art almost everywhere I went. For those of you that have never been in Dublin, this city is divided by a river, the Liffey, and everything above the river is called Dublin north (All odd numbers for the district code like Dublin 1, 3, 5, 7…) and everything below the river, Dublin south (All pair numbers for the district code like Dublin 2, 4, 6 …)
Dublin South is full of hip places and bars and it is usually more wealthy in comparison with the north of the city. There are lots of beautiful graffitis in the Dublin south. But that will be the topic of another post !
Some time ago I went on a graffiti tour in North Dublin and what we saw was truly fantastic! The graffitis on this post were all seen in the north of the city! Smithfield, Cabra, various points in the north and Jervis area.
Hiya and Happy Saturday!
It has been a really busy week where I have finally published other two websites part of my overall project for the year. One is a brand new art website more in line with what I want to do in the near future, where I would also like to include photography and design in my life! Take a peek at www.elenasorianoart.com and let me know what you think! And the other website I published is more like a display of the various hats that I wear in my life in an attempt to wrap them up in a nice pretty showcase. Check it out at www.lnasoriano.com
TURNING PRO BY STEVEN PRESSFIELD
This is a funny moment in my life, and like it happens with all these weird moments you stumble upon some amazing books that feel like they REALLY speak directly to your soul. This is the case with a book I have recently read: ”Turning Pro” by Steven Pressfield.
It’s been two weeks since I joined Weight Watchers and it has been a complete roller coaster! I decided to register because I wanted to loose a few kilos and I thought that the weekly monitoring would motivate me to lose more and faster. I was entirely sure that I had the nutrition factor completely handled and that I just needed some group motivation. But the first week I even put weight on!! It turns out that I actually learned a few things about some of the foods I was having and this has been quite the revelation! This is going to be an ongoing series where I will share my progress through the program and the lessons I learned along the way. Stay tuned!
This video is the first of many to come where I will show the gems and the beauty in the places I visit. Most of the time this will be Ireland as I spend most of my time here. But you will see many more videos very soon about Barcelona, Madrid, and Paris!
This is the time when the days are getting colder and the nights are getting longer. It seems like it does not matter what we do as we tend to feel extremely tired every year around this time. Wouldn’t it be great if we got to this time of the year and we got more energetic? or we wanted to get out all the time? and had lots of energy all day?
Many of us wonder about this and I have noticed that there are certain things that we can, and we should do to get more energetic in these winter months. A few small changes here and there in the habits will completely improve our energy levels, so let’s get on with it!.
Since I started this blog it was a decision of mine to write about endometriosis but in a more positive way that what you can usually read on the web. I remember the day I was told that I had endometriosis and even the way I was told that I had this condition as truly horrendous. So why not share all the positive and inspiring stuff I have also found along the way? For those that just found out, or simply need a bit of positive info 🙂
I am so excited to finally write my first blog post here!. I have been tuning and working on this project for the last few months and yet!! here we are! The idea of this blog has been a recurrent one for me as I needed to find a platform where I was able to share all the things I love and that I am learning everyday. The only problem is that I could´t figure out how to do that. After a few months, I put all the ideas together and voilà! Welcome to my blog!
