Snippets of December 2017 – Madrid, New Tattoo and Christmas


Went Back to Refuel!

The past weekend I went back to my hometown to visit my family, and to celebrate my birthday. As soon as we got on the bus, I could feel myself relax a bit more and being able to let go of a lot of the tension I've been struggling with the last couple of weeks.... Continue Reading →

Did you know that my mom does magic?

I'm very lucky to have a mom that can do magic. Out of something quite small, she can create warmth, protection and love.
