About Me

I am a 29 year old, Hispanic, female who works in the optical world. I enjoy hiking, museums, art, good food, good tea, and being out in nature. I grew up in southern California but currently live in the PNW. Even though I have been here for 3 years I cannot get used to the gloominess and take many trips home to see family, see some sunshine and go to a sandy beach!


Favorite Crafts

I used to be pretty crafty when I was younger but life got busy and I stopped making time for myself. I am trying to develop a self-care routine where I do some of the fun crafts I used to love doing. Crafts like; embroidery, coloring, scrapbooking, journaling, and letter writing.

Favorite Music

I love country music, and I can't even explain why. Miranda Lambert, The Wrights, Maddie and Tae, Carrie Underwood, Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Shania Twain, Little Big Town, Maren Morris...the list goes on and on.

I also listen to a lot of older "Musica Romantica" (Romantic Music) that I grew up listening to. From artists like Rocio Durcal, Jose Jose, Anna Barbara, Los Bukis, Joan Sebastian, Juan Gabriel, Banda Machos, and more.

I am a 90s baby so I also love R&B and Pop music. My boyfriend is a late 80s baby so I have developed quite a fondness to 80s Rock.

Favorite Books

I love to read. I will read almost anything. On my beside I currently have this stack of books: "China Rich Girlfriend;" "The Vine Witch;" "Little Fires Everywhere;" "The Bette Davis Club;" "Surprise Me;" " Norse Mythology;" "Girl Wash Your Face;" "Kitchen Confidential" and "The Good Neighbor"

Also, my boyfriend is reading "Never Grow Up" by Jackie Chan to me as I fall asleep every night, it is a nice break from his Korea Escapee biography addiction. He was never much of a reader but he enjoys reading me to sleep so it's been a great way to get him to read. He only likes autobiographical books.

One of my co-workers loves to read romantic comedies so we both devour and an insane amount of romcoms on our kindles and give each other suggestions on what we should read next. I just finished reading "Christmas Shopaholic" by Sophie Kinsella, I binge-read through all the "All the Boys I loved Before" trilogy, "Your Perfect Year" by Charlotte Lucas, Mary Alice Monroe books and got addicted to mini-stories by Vi Keeland.

I also have a secret indulgence when it comes to books... I love to read celebrity autobiographical books. The most recent I've read was "Whiskey in a Teacup: What Growing Up in the South Taught Me About Life, Love, and Baking Biscuits" by Reese Witherspoon. I love books that tell a good story and have recipes in them so I couldn't help myself, plus I love anything set in the south! I have also read books by Ally Wong, Rob Lowe, Drew Berrymore, Anna Kendrick, Amy Schumer, Lauren Graham, and so many more!

Favorite Movies

I grew up loving animated movies. I mostly love anything Pixar and animated Disney! My boyfriend and I recently started doing movie Monday the movies we have watched so far are: "Event Horizon," "Interstellar," and "Greta."

Favorite Television

I am quite the TV binge-watcher. I just blew through all of Dharma and Greg. I watch Grey's Anatomy, Fresh Off the Boat, Blackish, The Good Place and my baby sister recently got me into Zoey's Infinite Playlist and I love it!

Favorite Color

This is Farah Angelina for the What Book are you reading? swap :)

I am currently reading HEARTLESS by Marissa Meyer at the chapter 11 mark and am loving it so far. It is about the life of the Queen of Hearts before she became the queen. She is a girl with ambition and dare i say in pursuit of real love. I can't wait to get to the reason why she became mean as the queen.

Happy reading!

Hi Ana,

First off, WELCOME TO SWAP-BOT, so happy that you're here! : )

This is for the Swap: "What book are you reading?" and my user name is: 03Scarlett

I'm currently reading "The Ironwood Plantation Saga: The Complete Series" by Stephenia H. McGee and I would highly recommend it to anyone. I'm still in the first part of the book but it's one that is really hard to put down. Have a good day! - Debi
