I want everyone to know me a little bit better so, I decided to make this post! :) If you want to know something else about me, leave me a question on the comments section below and I will answer it.

Something I'll never forget: my work experience on Walt Disney World.

So, what do you think? What else do you want to know about me? :)


  1. Heya! it's good you made this post... so nice knowing more about you. My fav color is green too.. I'd love to know more about your stint at walt disney and your business.. love your stuff btw :)

    1. Thank you so much!! :)
      Your fav color is green? You have a great taste! haha ;)

      Well... I worked at Disney for 5 months as part of the Disney College Program; a job experience opportunity for college students. I worked at Electric Umbrella and at Fountain View (Epcot). At first it was hard because it was my first time having roommates, my first time staying away from my family for a period of time and my first time dealing with the English by myself. The best part of all of it, is that I made new friends from around the world! and I got a little bit better with my English.

      And about my business... I started making jewelry for myself in 2009 and in January 2012, I decided to start selling my creations (bracelets, necklaces & earrings). Right now I'm only selling local :/ but I want to expand this, I really do. I'm thinking about making an etsy shop or something like that. In the meantime, I'm sponsoring contests and giveaways :)

      Thanks for asking!
