HOW TO START A PROFITABLE BLOG IN 2018

12/01/2018

You clicked on this post, so I guess you’re at least a bit interested in starting a blog. New years are for new beginnings, so why not starting right from day 1? I feel that 2018 is going to be a big year for blogging.

Contrary to what it may seem, starting a blog isn’t complicated at all. You don’t even need to have a plan or the best writing skills. I have learned everything I know with experience, try after try, that’s just the best way to learn. In fact, you just need a little curiosity and motivation to write about something you love!

You can start a blog in just a few minutes, it’s super easy and fast. You don’t need previous blogging skills (you’ll learn with time) or spend lots of money (the host I use costs just a few dollars a month, so save some coins and you’re good to go) and you don’t have to post everyday -or even every week- to be successful.

But I want to be honest 100% with you, so I have to say starting a blog is easy, it’s what comes after that that takes more effort. You won’t earn 5000$ in your first month of blogging, it is a slow process and you’ll have to work hard, but it’s something totally possible to do and it’s also really worth it.

WE’LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS

06/01/2018

We all know Christmas is the most wonderful time of the year. But what has been the most wonderful trend of the year?

I’ll give you a clue: I’m wearing one in the picture above.

Yes, berets! I’ve been loving them since I got my first one at Twinkledeals.

To be honest, I never tried to wear berets before. I thought they wouldn’t look good on me, and it was also a bit difficult to find them in stores. But during the last year a lot of things changed, and it looks like berets are now a trend. It seems like every blogger and fashionista has her own collection of berets, so that kind of gave me confidence enough to get one. It feels like I’m in Paris!

What a surprise for me! I totally love it. Now it makes me kind of sad that I waited for too long to get one. I wear them to college all the time, and it makes me feel more intellectual (that doesn’t mean I am one though haha), so maybe I should add “wearing a beret” to  my tips to be a successful blogger while studying in college.

2017 RECAP: MY FIRST MONTH BLOGGING

01/01/2018

Hello 2018!

2017 has definitely been a year of change, both good and bad.

It has practically been my first year of college, so it has also been the first year I’ve lived away from home. I’ve moved from a town to a big city.

And to be honest, it has been crazy. My life has totally changed in such a short period of time, but I’m not saying it in a bad way (even though some things didn’t go as planned…). To the contrary, it has been the most profitable experience ever and I still feel that I’m learning everyday.

So basically, 2017 has been a year of change and growth, personally and academically. Here are some of my favorite things of 2017:

HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE: 10 THINGS UNDER 20$

23/12/2017

To be honest, I don’t consider myself a big fan of Christmas gift buying. I like to receive hugs more than gifts, but I also really like to help my readers find the perfect gift for those who love. For that sake, I created my first gift guide ever: 10 things under 20$.

I’ve made a selection of those cute things you can put in your Christmas stockings or under the tree for a really low price, and they’re all from Amazon so you can easily find them online.

In my case, as a college student, I can’t afford to get really pricey gifts for my friends and family, so I always look for this kind of details. I even have some of the things I show you on the guide, so I can give you a real opinion on them. I think the intention is what really matters. You don’t have to spend thousands on something to make someone happy or let them know how you love them.

INSPIRATION

A STYLE GUIDE INSPIRED BY: MATHILDA (LÉON, 1994)

07/12/2017

We all fell in love with this character when we watched Léon, this thriller released in 1994. And the main reason why we fell in love with Mathilda, a naive but fierce girl, was because she was played by a 12-year-old Natalie Portman. Not to forget, she wore a really cool hairstyle and had the greatest sense of style.

Todos nos enamoramos de este personaje cuando vimos por primera vez “Léon”, este trhiller estrenado en 1994. La razón principal por la que nos enamoramos de Mathilda, una chica ingenua pero fuerte, fue principalmente porqué fue interpretada por una Natalie Portman de 12 años, cuya actuación no dejó nada que desear.

A SURVIVAL KIT FOR FALL EXPLORERS

02/12/2017
I recently made my first order at Gamiss and after hours and hours of intense research, I finally came to these 3 beautiful pieces.
It wasn’t until they arrived home, that I realized how much they reminded me of Indiana Jones. That’s why I like to call it A Survival Kit For Fall Explorers.
I got a “suede” jacket (it’s not made from suede but it looks like), a backpack and a double necklace.  I love how they look together, so I created a look to show the combination. It’s just the perfect kit for an explorer. Keep reading and you’ll see why.
Hace poco hice mi primera compra en Gamiss, y después de horas y horas de intensa búsqueda, finalmente me decidí por tres piezas. No fue hasta que llegaron a casa, cuando me di cuenta de lo mucho que me recordaban a Indiana Jones. Por eso me gusta llamarlo El Kit Perfecto Para Exploradores de Otoño.
 
Una cazadora de “ante” (no está hecha de ante pero tiene la misma textura), una mochila y un collar doble. Me encanta como queda todo junto, así que enseñároslo en forma de outfit es la mejor forma de que podáis ver la combinación. Personalmente creo que es el kit perfecto para un explorador, o como a mi me gusta llamarlo, y si continuáis leyendo averiguaréis porqué.

1. BROWN “SUEDE” JACKET


My number one staple for Fall. I think this jacket is perfect for those days inbetween Summer and Fall. I know, maybe it’s a bit late now.
Anyways, I love that it gives any outfit real “rocker vibes” and that I can wear it on really cold days if I pair it with a cool scarf (maybe this one from my November wishlist). It wasn’t the occasion this time, since I decided to wear this beautiful necklace that I also want to show you.The best part is that it’s not made from real leather, but it actually looks like it. So no animals have been harmed to make this piece of clothing (I love animals and I could never wear something made of their skin, I’m totally against real skins).


CHAQUETA DE “ANTE” MARRÓN

My prenda indispensable para el otoño. Creo que esta chaqueta es perfecta para esos días entre Verano e Otoño. Lo sé, puede que ahora ya sea un poco tarde.
De todas formas, me encanta el toque roquero que aporta a cualquier outfit y que, además, puedo llevarla incluso en días fríos si la combino con una bufanda (por ejemplo ésta de mi wishlist de noviembre). No se dio la ocasión ésta vez, ya que decidí ponerme este bonito collar de la misma tienda.Para mí, lo mejor de esta chaqueta es que no está hecha de piel real, pero puede llegar a parecerlo. Ningún animal ha sufrido para que podamos llevar esta pieza de ropa. Me encantan los animales y nunca podría llevar algo hecho con su piel, estoy totalmente en contra de las pieles.

This is actually a necklace set, since it comes with a gold choker to wear them together. Is it just me, or this gemstone really has the coolest mystic vibes?

I feel really witchy wearing this, and honestly, I love it. It reminds me of Sabrina, The Teenage Witch.
I chose this purpura tone because it’s one of my favorite colors, but also because it has a marble texture that makes it look more realistic.
La segunda pieza es, en realidad, un set de dos collares. Ya que el colgante viene con un choker dorado para combinarlos juntos. Soy yo, ¿o este collar realmente transmite algo místico?
Me siento como una maga llevándolo y, sinceramente, me encanta. Me recuerda mucho a la serie de mi infancia “Sabrina, Cosas de Brujas”.
Escogí este color púrpura porqué es uno de mis favoritos, pero también porqué la textura es como la del mármol y creo que eso le da más realismo.

I’d love to be able to say that I use this for my mountain adventures and trips in the forest, but for the moment, I can’t. I’ve been so busy lately that it hasn’t been an option for me to even think about anything else than work.
My life is all about writing essays and studying for my exams!
Anyways, I can’t wait to enjoy the real pleasures in life (a.k.a nature and weekend escapes) and I’ll definitely bring this backpack with me. It screams “adventure”.
Me gustaría poder decir que esta es la mochila que llevo en mis aventuras por la montaña y mis excursiones al bosque, pero por el momento no es así.  He estado tan ocupada que ni siquiera he podido pensar sobre nada más que trabajo.
¡Mi vida es todo hacer prácticas y estudiar para mis exámenes!
Pero de todas formas, estoy impaciente por disfrutar de los verdaderos placeres de la vida (la naturaleza y las escapadas de fin de semana) y definitivamente voy a llevar esta mochila conmigo. Creo que ella también está esperando su primera aventura.
