Day Cero

Today is Friday. It’s an absolutely beautiful day outside, with temperatures around 70º and sunshine galore. Since I didn’t have school, I went for a walk around Bilbao. Here’s an ootd mirror selfie in the elevator mirror since we don’t have a full-length mirror in the apartment: hehe


And, to no surprise, I ended up at Zara on the Gran Vía, a street lined with shops and restaurants galore. Everything is still de rebajas aka on sale. The store was surprisingly busy for a Friday at 2pm. I bought myself a new pair of black jeans for 10 euros!


When I got home, we had hamburgers for lunch. Then, we watched La Isla de Las Tentaciones, a Spanish reality TV show where couples are separated on an island and then paired up with singles to see who will be unfaithful. It’s really addictive but hard to watch (and understand sometimes).

This evening, I plan on relaxing and working on building an Instagram AR filter. I have no idea how to make one, but it seems like a fun challenge.

Also, I think my next post will be in Spanish. Actually, maybe I’ll make this whole blog in Spanglish, to practice. Hmm…

Me siento: 😴 pero 🤗

Hasta luego! ❤️
