10 Things I Like and 10 Things I Don’t Like Tag

Hello everybody! How are you? This week I decided to post something different, not makeup, fashion, or food related. On Monday, the lovely Kat nominated me to the Love/Hate Tag. I’ve never done a tag before and I thought it would be a fun idea for you to get to know me a bit more. For this tag you have to write about 10 things you like and 10 things you don’t like, which at first I thought it would be easy, but I was wrong haha. Hopefully you enjoy this post!

The Things I Like:

  1. Spending time with my family: If there is something I truly enjoy is spending time with my family. I just feel relaxed and at home with them, if that makes any sense. One of my favorite thing to do with them is cook. Every Sunday, we gather in the kitchen and decide what to eat for lunch. Then, we start preparing the meal. My parents usually are the ones that cook (I would probably burn the house down haha), and I just chat with them or help out doing small things like peeling vegetables haha.
  2. Drinking coffee: My love for coffee started at a young age, when I was 7 years old. I remember my dad and I would go out and drink capuccinos. Both, my mom and my dad, love coffee, so I grew up with that, I guess you could say, habit or custom. I love the smell of recently brewed coffee. It just makes me feel happy haha. Also, coffee can be a great body scrub :P
  3. Traveling: If I could just travel for place to place for my whole life, that would be the perfect job for me. I love getting to know different places and trying new things. I think it’s interesting learning about different cultures and the reason why people are the way they are.
  4. Nature: I love being outside. From time to time I like to spend a little moment just sitting on the grass and staring at the sky. Nature can be so peaceful and relaxing. It reminds me of how much more there is out there, how much more there is to life.
  5. Makeup: Throughout this past year I’ve learnt so much about makeup and beauty, and still I feel there is a lot more to learn. Finding video tutorials and blogs about makeup have kind of ignited a creative spark within myself. I love doing my makeup and trying new products. It has helped me become a more confident person, like more comfortable in my own skin, even though in my day to day I don’t wear that much makeup.
  6. Going to the movies: I don’t know why, but I love going to the movies. It’s the feeling I get that I truly enjoy haha. I love getting popcorn or a hotdog and then just sitting there and having fun. I think it’s a way to forget about everything and just enjoy yourself.
  7. Swimming: Although I love going to the pool, lately I haven’t able to swim as much as I wish I could do so. While I’m at the pool I feel closer to nature and Earth (although that sounded a bit wired as I reread that sentence haha). Also, I love that while you swim, you do sweat because you are working out, but you don’t feel as sweaty, hot, and sticky as you would if you were running for example.
  8. Baking cakes: I love watching the Food Network. When I was little, I would spend hours just watching that channel. Then, I would get hungry and think to myself “I’m going to do this recipe that I’ve just watched”. I would get to the kitchen and attempt to do that mouthwatering cake, or any dessert, and it just wouldn’t be same as the recipe’s haha. Besides that small disappointing part, baking is really fun. It let’s you get creative while eating yummy food.
  9. Reading: While I do like watching tv shows, there is nothing like reading a good book. I love how you can get immerse in a book so much and just read and read without noticing that time has past by and it’s time to go to sleep again. I love that what you write may be interpreted differently by people (hopefully in a good way). Then, you realize that words can touch a person in so many ways.
  10. Singing in the shower/car: One of the things I would have liked to have is a good singing voice. If I had one, I think I would sing all day long. Well, I kind of do sing a lot, but only when no one is there to listen haha. I love singing in the shower or while driving :)

The Things I Don’t Like:

  1. Candy: If I had to choose between candy or chocolate, I would definitely go for the latter one. It’s not that I don’t like candy, I actually do, but I don’t get any candy cravings. If I want a little snack, I would go for a piece of chocolate rather than candy. I think it’s too sweet haha.
  2. Losing stuff: Sometimes while I do things, my mind is in another planet. I tend to forget where I place my stuff. It’s worse when I’m in a hurry so I go crazy trying to retrace my steps and finding the lost item haha.
  3. Coffee flavored chocolate: Although chocolate is one of my favorite food to eat and coffee is one of my favorite drinks, I don’t like coffee flavored chocolate. Have you tried those coffee beans covered with chocolate? Personally, I don’t like the combination because it has a bit of a bitter taste. However, I love mochaccinos!
  4. Walking in high heels: Amongst my group of friends, I’m one of the tallest girls. When we go out, I tend to avoid wearing super high heels, even though I love them, because I don’t want to look like a giant haha. Because of that, I’ve never really practiced walking in them :P Has that happen to you?
  5. Not mastering painting my own nails: I’m all about DIY when it comes to beauty. I love doing my makeup, my hair, I wax myself, and I do my own manicure and pedicure. However, I still haven’t gotten the hung of painting my nails really nice, specially when I’m doing my right hand nails. The first day my nails look messy because I have nail polish all over my fingers, but after I’ve clean them up, it looks descent enough. I guess practice makes perfect :P
  6. Not enough time: Sometimes I feel like 24 hours is not enough. There are so many things I would love to do, but so little time. Maybe it’s the excitement that makes me want to do them now, but I have other projects to finish before. Things will happen at the right time, don’t you think? :)
  7. Not doing enough exercise: I like working out, not because I want to have a super abs or something like that (although, I wouldn’t complain if I had them haha), but because it makes me feel great afterwards. Lately, I haven’t had time to do exercise so I miss that energy boost.
  8. Messing up my winged eyeliner: Sometimes when you feel like you have finally mastered the art of cat eyeliner, it comes the day that you realize that you actually haven’t master it at all haha. Some days I’m happy with my winged eyeline, other days it looks messy, but I guess it’s a matter of practice and practice.
  9. Finishing the Harry Potter books: Call me a geek, but I love the Harry Potter books. I remember a friend of mine and I would go to the midnight book launches to be the first ones to get the books. It was so much fun reading those books and they hold a special place in my heart haha. I wish those books had never ended.
  10. Spiders: I’m afraid of them :P

I hope you guys enjoyed this post and let me know if you want me to keep doing more of these. What are the things you like and don’t like??
