As you may know I have a slightly obsession at the moment with Portuguese
music. I was really into the World Cup at it’s end and I was rooting for
Brazil, so I researched quite a lot about them. That’s what got me into Portuguese
I love Latin languages, especially Spanish because it has a very
nice sound to it and I feel like everything you say in this language is more
meaningful. I don’t really know why, I’m weird like that. Luckily Portuguese it’s
While I was listening to Luan Santana on YouTube, I noticed another
singer at the related section and I clicked on the video and I was really
surprised to find a very emotional video. Apart from the very beautiful song
with lovely lyrics, the video has a very strong message. Breast Cancer cures!!
This week’s Musical Monday was inspired by Neymar. I saw a video
of him singing this song and I really liked the melody so I searched it up and
fall in love. Later I found myself searching for a live performance of Luan Santana
and I found the song I chose for this blog post. Here is the video of Neymar that I was talking about.
I know Spanish, and Portuguese is similar so I
understood most of it but I still googled it, just to make sure haha. Here it’s
the translated version if you wanna have a look.
I love this live performance, his voice is amazing and I think he’s
pretty handsome as well haha.
Always has kicked off “an epic
battle to make sure that girls everywhere keep their confidence throughout
puberty and beyond, and making a start by showing them that doing it #LikeAGirl
is an awesome thing.”
Puberty is already a big deal to go through so having somebody to tell
you (in a disrespectful way) that you are acting #LikeAGirl it can bring you
down so much that you will barely see that little light at the end of the tunnel.
When I came across this video that Lauren Greenfield directed in
partnership with Always I had a flashback of my teenage years.
I have gone through puberty and I know what it’s like. It was one of the
darkest periods of my life. A lot of emotions came crushing down on me. There
was a lot happening in my life at the time and I remember that every thing no
matter how small or insignificant, mattered a lot. Unfortunately that drowned
me into depression. It took me about two years to overcome my fear of
everything, really. I didn’t want to talk to anyone, I didn’t want to go out,
not even out of my room. I hated everything, I hated everything that I was
doing and soon I started to hate myself. And all that because I wasn’t fitting
in. I felt like everybody else was better than me and that there was nothing I
could do. What I didn’t know at that point is that my friends were probably
going through the same things but coping better with them. On the outside I was
always happy, always smiling but there was a dark storm inside me every single
day, every single hour.
Fortunately I was never bullied during these two years, but to be honest
even the smallest joke my friends were making about me felt like a bully.
Probably one of my advice for teenage girls and boys, because boys go
through puberty as well and it’s not an easy thing for them either, is to be
Yourself and forget about stereotypes. Don’t try to fit in a category. Embrace
yourself and don’t be afraid to be and to think different.
Don’t use #LikeAGirl in a negative way. Being a girl is not a bad thing!
This video has a great message and I am so happy that somebody is
bringing up this subject. I love what Lauren said about this campaign: “I am excited to be a part of the movement to
redefine 'like a girl' into a positive affirmation.”
I really hope that this ad will boost teenager
girls’ self-confidence all around the world so they can act trustfully
I decided to post a tutorial on how to make your transparent
images show up as transparent on Blogger.
I encountered this issue a few days ago and I searched all
day long on Google how to solve it and I could’t find anything. Nothing that I
found worked for me so after hours of trying out different solutions I thought I
would try this last one and it worked!! I was so happy with myself haha.
It’s not a big deal nor complicated but since I didn’t find
this solution online I thought I would post a little tutorial.
1. First thing you wanna do is Log in to
your Blogger account (obviously haha – but I saw this first step on every
tutorial haha) and make sure your picture is .PNG
2. Click on Template from your sidebar
3. Click on Customize
4. Click on Advanced --> Images
5. Open the Background Color menu and
6. Don’t forget to click on Apply to
That's it. It's really simple. I hope this helped and
that it works for you.
This Monday I decided to post a brand new Romanian song and for the first
time not an English one because I really like it and I love it’s message.
It’s about the capital of my country, Bucharest. The lyrics are so
beautiful, the song is just amazing and I also love it’s music video.
People around me always complain about our country for various reasons, I’m
not going to name them now. It’s true, our country could be at least 10 times
better maintained if more people cared about it, but I’m optimistic and I think
that every day is better than the other. It’s also true that if we were to be always
satisfied with what we’ve got nothing would evolve BUT from time to time we
have to stop and look around and NOTICE all the nice things not just the bad ones.
I think that my country is very beautiful and picturesque having some of
the most amazing views.
My opinion is that we should appreciate more the things that surround us
before it’s too late. You never know what tomorrow brings so enjoy today like
it’s your last day.
Here is Adda’s new song featuring What’s up. Hope you enjoy :)
