SPAIN TRAVEL VLOGS

Buenos dias!

How is everyone doing? I have been having so much fun with my fiancé here in Spain! From going to see castles, to partying it up at the fiestas in the villages around us, going on road trips to hand out our wedding invitations and also seeing some amazing views, with human nature at it’s finest 🙂

I have been vlogging on the weekends so that you can join in the fun and see the amazing sceneries through our eyes. I know many of you have been dying to hear Jairo speak English so I have been trying my hardest and at times I catch little snippets of him trying and it is the cutest thing! His cute Spanish accent is to die for 😀

Currently on my channel I have two Spain Travel Vlogs. I have worked really hard on both of them and it would mean the world to me if you could head on over to my channel and leave a comment on my latest videos letting me know if you enjoyed my video; constructive criticism is more welcome also!

Here are my new vlogs:

I FAILED!

I know, I failed… 😦doh

I really thought I was going to be able to post on my blog every day in April but I just couldn’t because of jet lag and being sick with the flu. I physically and mentally could not do it 😦 Gosh I should have known it wasn’t a good idea to start this challenge when I know how difficult jet lag can be. I’m sorry guys! I am going to really attempt to upload more regularly because I feel really bad! I don’t just feel bad because I failed but I also feel upset because I failed myself as I absolutely love posting blog posts for you all. It is really fun for me and to be honest it is almost therapeutic.

I am in the middle of uploading a haul video, literally it’s at 50%! It has taken me days to upload because it hasn’t been working! I’m not sure what is going on! If you follow me on Instagram I have spoken about the situation and had a rant about how I have been having trouble posting videos since I have arrived in Spain. In saying this, it seems to be working now so I really hope it doesn’t bugger up on me and continues to go strong and complete the upload. I’m super excited to share with you guys this haul because I have some new beauty products that I am excited to try out 😀

Also, I will be posting a product review in the next couple of days on my blog so stay tuned for that. It is going to be on a newly discovered concealer that I LOVE! I cannot wait to post the review and share my thoughts with you all. Hopefully it convinces you to try it out too because it is such a good product. If you are interested in sticking around for that post, please follow my blog by clicking follow or also subscribing by email so that you are notified of when it goes up.

At the moment I am actually having an ITSJUDYSLIFE MARATHON! I very frequently get in these moods where I decide on a youtuber that I want to watch and then I’ll spend a few days literally binge watching their videos from the first videos that they have on their channel to the most recent one! Does anyone else do this? Or am I the only weirdo out? Let me know! I’m absolutely loving it! You all know that I love Judy. She is one of my favourite youtubers and the first youtuber that I started watching years ago! So I am really enjoying this marathon. I wish I had some popcorn or M&M’s with me…

Easter is this week so I hope you all have a fantastic Easter and eat many chocolate eggs! Yum!

happy easter

I hope you understand my situation and I am looking forward to posting again.

BLOGGING EVERY DAY IN APRIL?!

Welcome back!

I’m so excited to be writing! I have decided to write a post Every. Single. Day. For the month of April! I’m not sure how I will go as I have never done something like this before but I am keen to try. I know I haven’t been as active on my blog as I maybe should be and there really is no excuse (apart from planning something really exciting which I’ll get into further along, so keep reading! 😀 ).

Since I have my channel on Youtube, my Spanish blog, and the blog that you guys are on right now, I find that whenever I am focusing on one site and attempt to introduce another site at the same time, I feel like I find it difficult to keep up with both let alone three and I become extremely overwhelmed! If you have multiple blogs or youtube channels, let me know if you ever feel like this! In saying this, I want to make it a goal of mine to focus on ALL THREE because it is something that I absolutely love doing and I love interacting with all my followers on each individual site. I feel as though I am starting to become more organised and I’m ready to take on this challenge. I have so many things to share with you guys and I am so excited to start!

Without further adieu, let’s get into the nitty-gritty!

Welcome to my first post of my April challenge. I just wanted to come on and give you guys a bit of an update of what has been happening with me these past few months.

Let’s start with some upcoming travel! There are only TWO DAYS left until I leave for Spain. As you know I was living over in Spain for 6 months up until December last year and had to come back home (Australia) for my health. My fiancé and I have been in Australia for three months and I have been feeling much better and enjoying the most of what beautiful Australia has to offer in the time that we have been here. This was the first time my man has left Europe so we definitely tried to see as much as we could in the little time that we had here and in between my not so good days. He has really enjoyed it which is fantastic!

 Also, I have posted a couple of pictures on my Instagram (@talia_aus) with captions stating that my wedding is literally in FOUR MONTHS! Like seriously?! I cannot believe how fast time flies by! To say that I am excited is an understatement! So as you can imagine I have been planning the big day, running around doing what us girls do best, SHOP! I have ordered my dress in Spain and it is absolutely gorgeous! I cannot wait to put it on again! Every time I try it on I cry haha. I have also bought my wedding shoes from the Novotel Boutique here in Wollongong, Australia. Yes, the wedding will be taking place in beautiful Spain; in the amazing Spanish Summer ❤ I am really looking forward to saying ‘I DO’ and becoming a wife to my best friend!

While I am in Spain I am planning on seeing beautiful places and I will be vlogging these so that you guys can enjoy these places with me. I think it will be really fun to vlog again! I have not vlogged in public for so long so I’m nervous and excited to whip my camera out and share my experiences with you all. I’ll also bring you guys along with me while I choose the flowers for mine and my sisters bouquet and possibly some other bits and pieces. Please send me any ideas of some flowers that you think would be beautiful for my bouquet. The colour scheme is white and blush pink with a hint of green 🙂 Leave some pictures in the comments for me! xx

Ok, I think I have covered everything for now! I’m excited to post for you guys tomorrow so stayed tuned and don’t forget to follow to keep updated with my daily posts! Love you all ❤

My 2016!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

I cannot believe 2016 is over! Just like that. BOOM and another year is gone! Wow, where do I even begin…

Actually, I know exactly where to start!!!! If you cannot tell by the amount of exclamation marks my excitement well let me tell you how excited I am. Yesterday, the 2nd of January 2017, I reached 1,000 subscribers on my Youtube channel!! 😀 Now, I know I have not posted a video in one whole year on my channel as I have been extremely busy and have not had the equipment with me in order to be able to film good quality content, it is still a big milestone that I have reached and it has been a personal goal of mine for quite a while. So when I received the email this morning I was stoked! Ok, now that I have done my happy dance and shared my excitement with you let’s move on to how 2016 treated me.

At the beginning of 2016 I was a little nervous to be honest. I was hoping that things would be a little easier than 2015 because 2015 was a tough one for me. However, in saying that I was nervous I was also extremely excited because towards the end of 2015 I had planned a big trip/change in my life that I will go into a bit more detail soon. One of my goals for 2016 was to spend more quality time with friends and family before my big change. I feel like I had accomplished that goal as I planned many outings with friends and spent a lot of time with my family members, especially my parents and sister which was really nice. I really feel like I have started to really take advantage of the little time we do have free from work to spend good quality time together.

On the 14th of June 2016 I took a big step and jumped on a plane alone to Europe! I spent four nights in London and then was off on my second Contiki Tour which toured around Europe with my best friend that met us on our first stop, Amsterdam. The tour lasted about three weeks and let me just say it was a wild three weeks! I had so much fun! We went to eleven different places around Europe. We visited:

  • London
  • Amsterdam
  • Berlin
  • Prague
  • Munich
  • Austria
  • Venice
  • Rome
  • Florence
  • Switzerland
  • Paris

I met and partied hard with some great people on this trip. All the places we went to were beautiful in their own way. I was also amazed by some of the cultures we were surrounded by. I absolutely love travelling and seeing and learning interesting facts about the different places around the world, it literally opens not just your eyes, but your mind too and helps you grow as an individual. Here are some photos of my time on Contiki:

I had a plan for myself. My plan was that after Contiki I was going to live and work in Spain for one year. So when I completed my Europe trip in Paris I went straight to Spain and was living with my grandparents. I have dual citizenship, meaning I am an Australian and Spanish citizen. In the first month living in Spain I got all my Spanish documents sorted and then got myself a job at an English academy as an English teacher which was an experience and one of my dream jobs since I was in High School. After a month I also met someone amazing. I was really enjoying my time in Spain but apart from family members I didn’t have any friends and the only friend that I did make lived in Madrid and was only down for a few weeks in the Summer. Madrid is about 4.5 hours away from where I live in Spain so it was hard to get together with her. So I found not having friends hard and then when I hit the 6 months mark of living overseas I started to become really homesick and I actually was suffering from really bad migraines and anxiety. My boyfriend took me to the hospital and the neurologist told me I had to stay in the hospital for a week because my migraines were really bad and I had lost strength in the right side of my body and also my anxiety was not good at all. While I was in the hospital my dad surprised me and told me that in a weeks time my mum and sister were coming to Spain to be with me for a bit to see if they could help me feel better which was such a beautiful surprise since I was extremely homesick also.

Flash forward five weeks after my mum and sister arrived in Spain and my boyfriend and I decided to come to Australia with them for a few months to be with my family. I am so grateful to be back here. We spent Christmas and New Year at home and I am very happy. I did not think being away from home was going to be so hard, but it definitely became difficult for me. I now remember speaking to a friend of mine before I left to Europe and she was telling me how when she went to the U.S.A. a couple of years back that she had the same idea as me, to live and work there for a year. However, she told me that when she reached 6 months she became homesick and came back home. I guess I was in the same position as her. At first I felt really sad that I couldn’t go through with my plan, but health comes first and I would rather be home and get better then head back over, than to be there unhealthy and unhappy for another 6 months just to say that I lived overseas for one whole year.

Overall, 2016 was a GREAT year for me (without thinking too much about the negative couple of months leading up to the New Year). I ticked off a few things off my bucket list, like travelling around Europe (although there are still many countries left to see), teach English in Spain, and live in Spain.

I hope 2016 was good to you all and here’s to a fantastic 2017!
