Hello and happy Thursday. As I explained last month, today is the day in which I share five things that made me happy during the month of April. We’re still doing 2017, as this is the first full year I used my notebook of things that make me happy. Let’s get started, shall we?

#490: Beyoncé makeup
I’m pretty sure I was referring here to a look Nikkie Tutorials did inspired by the Lemonade tour, which I recreated and must have loved so much I felt the need to add it to my notebook. In all fairness, anything that has the word “makeup” in it is going to make me happy.

#504: Sweet-ish bread at lunch
Ready for a culture shock? In Colombia, more specifically in Bogota, which is where I’m from and where I’ve lived my whole life, we have this soup called ajiaco. Ajiaco is basically a potato soup, at least that’s what it is for me because I eat it with no chicken. The sides for ajiaco are usually rice, corn on the cob, avocado, and bread. I remember that the first school I worked at served this sweet bread that was amazing and that my students usually didn’t eat, so I’d be left with seconds.

#525: Spending time with my friends from uni
This entry is from a trip I went on with two of my best friends from university. We traveled to Cartagena and had an absolute blast. I remember that trip very fondly and I really wish we could do another version of it in the future. If you don’t know, by the way, Cartagena is one of Colombia’s most touristic cities. It’s in the coast, and it’s always full of hot foreigners. (I meant the “hot” part literally and figuratively)

#547: Intense hair and skin care sessions
I can only imagine the state of my hair and skin after the Cartagena trip from the previous entry. We came back on April 12th, so I’m thinking I decided to spend the following day recovering from the sun, the sand, and everything that could have hurt my precious little body.

#566: Having smiley fries
Are those a thing where you live? Those fries shaped as smiley faces. I used to love them as a kid and the love hasn’t diminished even now that I’m an adult. I don’t know, there’s something special about them. I even feel like they taste better. The advantage of having worked at a school with preschoolers was that I got fun foods like these fries I love so much.
What has made you happy during the month of April? Tell me all about it in the comments.
Love, Miss Camila
