Let's go to the Zoo

Ello everybody!

Today was such an amazing day. As the title give away the topic of this post, I went to the zoo with my dad and I just loved it!

I must admit that I'm not an animal lover person but I enjoy watching and whine over cute little animals. I think the last time I went to the zoo was at least 5 years ago and well, I was feeling going since tomorrow is my birthday and I wanted to do something different.



We began with the "normal" animals and then decided to go see some dinosaurs. You can't go wrong with some dinosaurs, right? Oh, and by "normal" animals I mean that we visited the aquariums, saw birds from all places of the world of all colours, lions, giraffes, etc.



It was a long trip from my home-town to the zoo but it was worth it, definitely. Although walking around the bloody place for around four hours without food and water wasn't our best idea, - we almost died - we had a great time!

What's you favourite animal? Mine's the jaguar, can't help myself! Hope you liked this post and write to you soon :) Muac Muac!

Returning from death

Ello everybody,

I know it's been more than a week since I've last posted - It was like if I was dead - but I've been pretty busy these days. In less than two weeks I have to go back to school and I've been shopping my school supplies and my uniform and what not. I'll probably make a post about it this week but today I'll just tell you what I've been doing lately.

(This is an old  photo from when I went to Stgo.)

So, I travelled to Santiago with my mum to buy my school supplies because I find there's more variety there than in my home town.

Then, with my dad I went buying my school's uniform and even if the sun was hitting hard and the temperature was higher than in Ecuador we had fun and strangely all the shopping was really fast.

Also I've been hanging and catching up with my friends - sorry that I didn't take photos, I completely forgot - and we went to the park roller blading and since I'm still not very good at it - doesn't matter how many times I skate - I borrowed my friend's bike.

It was hilarious, and I was so happy to see my friends.

Sorry this is a short post, but this week I'll be posting a little bit more! Promised :)

TMI (too much information) tag!

(Source)

Ello everybody!

I was blogging a little bit before and while doing that I came across with this TAG and I just though this would be an excellent opportunity for you guys to know better who's talking - writing - behind the screen. I personally like when bloggers sometimes answer personal questions because I feel them more "real" in that way.

Anyways, If you read this till the end then you must do this TAG too! - If haven't already ... of course -.


1: What are you wearing? 
Just a pair of simple blue jeans with my white converses and a t-shirt.

 2: Ever been in love? 
In a romantic way? Not yet.

 3: Ever had a terrible break-up? 
Never. I'm still with my first boyfriend so, I'll just have to wait and see.

 4: How tall are you? 
I'm 5 ft and almost 3 inches.

 5: How much do you weigh? 
I don't really know ... I don't have those things where you can weigh yourself (sorry I don't remember the name).

 6: Any tattoos? 
No yet. I want one so badly that probably I'll have one at the end of the year.

 7: Any piercings? 
Does it count my ears? I have double pierced my right ear.

 8: OTP? 
Definitely Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase (Percabeth) for ever ever ever ;)

 9: Favourite show? 
Mmm ... Currently I'm watching "Intelligence" and I'm loving it so far!

10: Currently listening to?
This is so hard because I don't know the names. I was listening to K-Pop earlier and well, Korean names aren't easy to remember.

 11: Something you miss?
Erm, I think I'm fine. I'm not missing anything :)

 12: Favourite song?
No!!! I won't answer this question!!! It's like asking a parent which one of his children is his favourite!!!

 13: How old are you?
I'm 15 years old but in exactly 13 days I'll be 16!

 14: Zodiac sign?
Pisces! Yep ... I'm a fish.

 15: Quality you look for in a partner?
Confidence. This apply to everything - in himself, in the relationship, in me, etc -. When there's confidence everything's better. But of course everything in excess is bad.

 16: Favourite Quote?
"Be brave enough to be different and follow your own star". I don't remember who told me this, but it has just stuck with me since forever.

 17: Favourite actor?
Mmm ... it says actor and not actress. Well, if it has to be a male actor then I can't answer properly because there are too many hotties all around the world to decide which one I like the most.

 18: Favourite colour?
It depends of the day. Some days I like better green and then I prefer purple. I don't have a favourite colour for too long.

 19: Loud music or soft?
Loud music!

 20: Where do you go when you're sad?
To my bed! My pillow never fails me and to be able to cuddle between my blankets and watch a film really puts me in a good mood.

 21: How long does it take you to shower?
A simple shower takes me 10 minutes max. But when I have to wash my hair it takes me 15-20 minutes. I just spend most of that time enjoying staying under the warm water.

 22: How long does it take you to get ready in the morning?
In a school morning just 30 minutes. In any other day that doesn't require to wake up early or isn't against the clock I would say 1 hour.

 23: Ever been in a physical fight?
Mmm ... I don't know? When I was a kid I did some karate, but of course I never wanted to hurt people. I'm not a violent person.

 24: Turn on?
I like when they're taller than me. Oh, and of course their smiles and eyes must be honest. I'm a hopeless romantic girl!

 25: Turn off?
Bad smells. When people smell bad - sweat, breath, etc - it just make me want to run away of them!

 26: The reason I started blogging?
Because I wanted to do something with my spare time. I didn't wanted to be doing nothing anymore. Does that make any sense?

 27: Fears?
I fear to be someone I don't want/like to be and spiders and bees. I just hate those little demons!

 28: Last thing that made you cry?
A film! I like to say to myself I'm just a sensible person ;)

 29: Last time you said you loved someone?
Awwwe! It was my mum. Just a few minutes ago I said that I loved her.

 30: Meaning behind your blog name?
Well, I wanted to post some origami in this blog and mostly DIY things. The idea was to "give life" to those papers that I was going to use to do my posts and what not.

 31: Last book you read?
The House of Hades by Rick Riordan. I made a review HERE.

 32: The book you're currently reading?
The Fault in our stars by John Green.

Just my mum's pizza. I could live of it!

There's not just one place. But one that has been in my list to "places to go" since forever is England. I'd like to visit the whole country at least once in my life.

 38: Last place you where?
My uncle's house in Santiago.

 39: Do you have a crush?
No.

 40: Last time you kissed someone?
Jesus I don't remember the exact day but it was about two weeks ago with my boyfriend. Now he's on a trip in Argentina so I won't see him till March :(

 41: Last time you were insulted?
When your friends/mother or other family member insults you - everybody knows is a joke - doesn't count. Maybe it was years ago since I cannot remember.

 42: Favourite flavour of sweet?
For ice-cream is pineapple! But I love all sweets in all flavours!

 43: What instruments do you play?
I play quite good the guitar and a little bit of piano.

 44: Favourite piece of jewellery?
I don't have a "favourite" but necklaces are a must in my everyday outfit.

 45: Last sport you played?
I'm sure every woman will agree with me in here. Shopping. I think shopping should be added in the sports list.

 46: Last song you sang?
"Tous les cris les SOS" by Daniel Balavoine.

 47: Favourite chat up line?
I don't know. Does "That's for me to know and for you to find out" count?

 48: Have you ever used it?
Yeah.

 49: Last time you hung out with anyone?
Last week. This week I've been travelling a lot so ... yeah.

Well, everybody! If you read this post till the end then you have to do this tag too!

Some quick Valentine's Day ideas

Ello everyone!

I know some people always leave everything to the last minute - cough cough, me for example - so I came up with some ideas simple and fast that YOU can do - with your bare hands - and not only for girls with someone in their hearts, but also some ideas for your friends and family :)

To me, being with the ones that I love is enough, but to get a little present is always welcome. So let's get to it!

1. The card (universal)


Cards can be very predictable for this dates, so to make it more special it is YOU the one who has to do it. Don't buy it, making it with your hands will demonstrate that you truly care!


2. Cupcakes (family and friends)

This is a good idea if you like cooking! This works for everybody, and if you're hanging out with some friends at your house, - it could be somewhere else - what better than bringing them a little snack related to Valentine's Day to remind them that is also the day of friendship!


3. Customize notebook/sketchbook (universal)

DIY little covered notebooks for Valentines day
(Source)
This is very simple to do but it takes a little more time than the other ideas. I already made one - for one of my BFF's birthday - and that person loved it! Sea Lemon teaches us how to make a sketchbook in her YouTube channel - click HERE - but I'll leave the video here anyways.


4. Paper flowers bouquet (That special someone)

Origamisan › English › Origami Rose
(Source)
You know, when you give flowers as a present they don't last long. Why not to give some flowers that will last years if they're well cared? Jo Nakashima made a tutorial making some paper Roses that are beautiful - click HERE - and if your valentines likes crafts and art, this is definitely a good gift.

These are some simple ideas, and think they're really cute :3 Giving a  little present to someone in these dates can really make the day to that person! Remember: Give some love, and love it's what you'll get <3

I wish you a very happy Valentine's Day, and much much much love for all of you! Muac Muac :)

Review: The Heroes of Olympus Series by Rick Riordan

Ello everyone!

A few days ago I posted my review of Percy Jackson & The Olympians Saga, and well, as you know the story continuous! Yay!

Okay, so this saga isn't complete yet, this October 7th the last book, The Blood of Olympus, will be released. So I'll just write about the other four books and when I get to read "The Blood of Olympus" I'll update this post with all five books on it. **(SPOILER ALERT)**


The Lost Hero


The Lost HeroSo, this book is my least loved one of all of them - including the two sagas - and it's just because one simple but HUGE thing. Percy's missing.

We begun the story with Jason Grace, - son of Jupiter (Zeus) - and he wakes up in a school bus with no memories at all. In the bus there's also Leo Valdez - son of Hephaestus - and Piper McLean, - daughter of Aphrodite - they're Jason's friends, and together they have to fight some wind spirits before the "extraction team" - Annabeth and Butch ( son of Iris) - comes and rescue them.

I didn't know why Annabeth came with Butch and not Percy, but then Annabeth says that Percy is lost and Jason should know where's her boyfriend. Okay, so first was Grover and then Annabeth, it hurt me to have them missing in the previous books, but Percy? I was a zombie in coma with my heart broken!

In this book you realises that Rick added some Roman stuff, I mean, Greek gods aren't the only ones. There's also a roman camp - Camp Jupiter - and well, the story says that both camps have been hidden from each other because they always fight and it's always bad.

Rick says that roman gods are the Greek gods, it's hard to explain, but just think as if someone has a double personality. Remember that roman gods are the same Greek gods but with different names and sometimes different personalities.

I loved this book, it's amazing how the Greek and Roman sides are mixed together! I makes the story continue but with new ideas and that makes it more interesting!


The Son of Neptune


The Son of NeptuneAlrighty! Finally Percy appears! This story takes place at the same time that "The Lost Hero", that means while Jason, Piper and Leo were in their adventure and blah blah, in here we see the story from Percy's POV - point of view -.

We get to know how Camp Jupiter works and meet new characters like Octavian, - Augur of Camp Jupiter - Hazel Levesque, - daughter of Pluto (Hades) - Frank Zhang, - son of Mars (Ares) - and Reyna- daughter of Bellona -. I love all this characters with my heart except for Octavian. In "Percy Jackson & The Olympians" I loved Luke, even if he was the bad guy, but I just can help hate Octavian.

Percy only remembers Annabeth - my heart died with percabeth - because he also lost his memories - like Jason -. He has to go on a quest because Camp Jupiter is in danger. During his adventure, he begun to remember things - like Jason - and their plan is to rescue the golden eagle - the pride of Twelve Legion - and get back to camp and save it.

They have to battle some new monsters, some are Greek and some Romans - doesn't matter to me they're all monsters - and while this story we discover that Frank has the power to change into any animal he desires, - something about his mother's bloodline - and Hazel is cursed - she attracts any precious metal -.

We also get to see some old characters like Nico Di Angelo, and in this book I find him a lot more mature and I don't know, he's not anymore that lost boy, now he knows what do and that makes me like him much much more.

I loved this book, I loved everything, and when it ended with Percy saying he wanted to introduce Hazel and Frank his other family - Annabeth and the others - I just couldn't wait to read the third book!


The Mark of Athena


Here we have all seven demi-gods from the prophecy together - Jason, Piper, Leo, Annabeth, Percy, Hazel and Frank -.

It begins with the seven escaping from Camp Jupiter because an Eidolon - spirit that can possess people and machines - makes Leo to shoot the camp with the Argo II - their ship that it's super-amazing and can fly -. They have to leave the camp and go to Rome to begin with their quest.

During their trip Annabeth must do her part of the quest alone, she has to go looking for a statue of Athena that was stolen from the Parthenon by the Romans. The theory is that because of the stolen object Greeks and Romans can't be in peace, so the plan is to return the statue to Greeks and like that stop the war between Greeks and Romans - between the camps -.

Some very known characters appears such as Hercules, although in the book - and Piper - they describe him as a jerk. Also we have the giants, that want to take over the world with Gaea - she's the bad guy in the story -. The problem here is that Gaea is asleep, and when she'll wake up it'll be the end for everybody - although the Giants and Gaea where at the beginning of the Saga.

I really loved this book, all seven are together for the first time and it makes the prophecy a lot more real. And we can see that all characters are changing - for good - because they're more mature. Percy and Nico are the example.

I loved also how Rick said that the Mediterranean was like a prohibited zone for demi-gods because it had a thousands of ancients creatures - monsters -.

I could go and go on with my review but I don't want to give ALL the book away! I loved every second I read it!


The House of Hades


Okay, I just lost it. In the previous book at the end Percy and Annabeth fell into Tartarus. - in the most romantic "as long as we're together" way -. I was very curious about how Rick would describe Tartarus since in our previous experiences with it he didn't.

It just blew me away! I don't want to go there, never! I still and always respect much more Percy because he went there on his own will - where he went to follow love (sarcasm) -. Anyways, there their mission is to close the doors of death - the doors must be closed by the two sides (from Tartarus and in the living world) - so Annabeth and Percy will close them in Tartarus and the others will close them in Greece.

In their way to close the doors of death Nico and Jason make a quick visit to Cupido, and let me tell you he isn't the cute baby in diapers, Rick made a more warrior version of him. The thing is Nico admits he has a crush on Percy. I just loved it!

The appearance of homosexual characters makes the story more realistic since not everybody is heterosexual. I didn't expected Nicoto  be gay, it was a total surprise, but it was a good one! I feel like a appreciate Nico much more now.

Also in Tartarus we get to know Iapetus/Bob, and I just love him. He's a Titan but Percy erased his memory and he became the most cute and gentle Titan ever. He and Damasen - a giant who isn't bad at all - help Percy and Annabeth to get to the doors and close them by sacrificing themselves. I cried at the end, I really loved these two unusual characters.

At the end Reyna will take the statue to camp Half-Blood with the help of Nico while the other seven will go in the Argo II to Athens to avoid Gaea's awakening.


--°°--°°--

I loved this saga so much and I can't wait to the publish of "The Blood of Olympus"! I don't know how I'ill stand the waiting - I'm sure it'll kill me -. I hope you like this review and just four words for you guys: JUST READ THE BOOKS!

Review: Percy Jackson & the Olympians Series by Rick Riordan

Ello everybody,

I'm very happy to make this review since last week I've been very busy reading all this amazing books by Rick Riordan. This is my second favourite saga, because I'm really in love with Greek mythology, and this saga has a lot of that. Sooo, let's jump into it! **(SPOILER ALERT)**

The Lightening Thief 


The Lightning ThiefSo, this is the very first book. I absolutely love it. The way Rick makes half-bloods - demi god/demi human - a possibility in the real world amazes me. When I was reading this book I really thought for one time "what if half-bloods really exist?"

Then, when he introduced us the Camp Half-Blood ... I have no words, it was like when J.K Rowling introduced us Howarts. With so many new things, activities that only in a book could appear. This place, I'm craving that they make one in the real world, because I'll be the first one to go - Although I believe they have already one in Texas -.

I loved the characters, all of them. Normally there's always one that you don't like much or you don't like or hate, it's just a character to you. But in this book, I loved every one of them, even Luke - he's the bad guy -.

I'm still dreaming that when I go the the Empire State, I'll go up to the the six hundred floor and meet the gods - even if I'm just a mortal, because you know, Olympus don't allow mortals in -.


The Sea of Monsters


The Sea of MonstersWell, this book was the more easy to read of the saga. Definitely.

When Grover goes missing all I thought was "Noooo, you can't be missing!" but anyways, now that Percy had a year knowing that he was a half-blood made things more ... quicker?

The introduction of Tyson the Cyclops mmm ... I must admit that while I was reading I didn't like Tyson. I thought that because he was also a son of Poseidon he would steal a little bit of Percy's protagonism. Luckily he didn't and at the end of the book I just loved him just as all the other characters - Brotherrr! -.

In this book you can really tell that Luke's the bad guy, and that he want to be that guy. He still has a soft spot for Annabeth and she doesn't want to believe that he's evil because she likes him - Nooo!! Percabeth (Percy x Annabeth) for everrrr!!! -.

Oh, and the Sea of Monsters in the Bermuda Triangle, that was it. I lost it. It made totally sense in my head why so many ships and planes got lost at the place, Rick's making me believe that his world of fiction is real.

All the new monsters, stories, characters, and much more were amazing. I loved it.

P.S: I loved how Grover had to dress as a bride, it totally made my day!


The Titans Curse


The Titan's CurseOmg! First it was Grover, and now it's Annabeth? I couldn't bear the lost of somebody else! - of course they're not dead, just lost -.

I know, I know, lets go the the beginning. With the return of Thalia - daughter of Zeus - and blah blah everybody is happy, except Percy because now he's not the awesome one, and because the two of them are always competing to know who's the best.

In one of the missions, Annabeth is abducted and that's when my world goes upside down! - Where's Percabeth?!? -.

Of course, new book, new characters and monsters. We get to know more some gods that aren't in the spot light and Nico and Bianca Di Angelo - sons of Hades - with Zoe Nightshade - lieutenant of Artemis -. I loved how Zoe talked like a very very veeery old person - she said thus instead of you - and how Nico talked about his mythomagic cards.

I know because of this I'm a horrible person, but I was happy when Thalia joined the hunters of Artemis, because that meant she was gone! Now, let me explain. There's this prophecy about one child of the big three - Zeus, Poseidon and Hades - and it says that that child will destroy or save the Olympus. Of course everybody thought it was Percy, but then came Thalia and nobody knew what to think. With her joining the hunters, she was out of the prophecy and leaved Percy to be "the one".

Well, I loved this book as much as I loved all the others!


The Battle of the Labyrinth


Battle of the LabyrinthJust saying it was awesome the idea of using the Labyrinth. I don't know from where Rick gets the inspiration or ideas but they're always superb! And now everything is great because they're all together - Percy, Annabeth and Grover -.

In here we get to know more to Rachel Elizabeth Dare - she appeared in the previous book -. I liked her at first but when she begun to take away the possibilities of Percabeth I wanted her as far away as possible from Percy.

I just really loved this book, all the details, and I LOVED how Percy got jealous of Luke when Annabeth didn't want to recognise he was evil and defended him. 

In this book we're also introduced to Daedalus/Quintus and Mrs. O'Leary - Daedalus' former pet Hellhound - and they're very important since Daedalus is the creator of the Labyrinth.

Also in this book Nico makes more appearances but I still found he was that lost boy who needed his sister. Although at the end he realises he can't bring back Bianca and that he has to trust Percy.

We can notice how some other character changes, for example Clarisse La Rue becomes "more softer" because she like a boy and blah blah.

Just good words for this book.


The Last Olympian


The Last OlympianAnd here's the last book of this saga. I didn't want this story to end - thank the gods it doesn't, thank you Rick - but I still devoured this book in seconds. This is the last move, the last battle, this is the moment when you wonder if Olympus will fall or survive.

The demigods are the key to the Olympus survival, and Percy is definitely the mortal movement. With his bath in the River Styx he becomes powerful enough to fight Kronos - a very evil Titan - that is now in Luke's body - although he allowed Kronos to use him as a "vehicle" -.

I still hate the fact that Zeus always think he's right when he's not. In this book Percy know that Titans will attack the Olympus while Typhon - a very powerful monster - is tearing everything down. But Typhon is just a distraction and Zeus just ignore Percy and go to fight the monster leaving the defence of Olympus in Percy's shoulders even if nobody told him to defend it.

Just loved this book, and finally my Percabeth becomes real! Yay! It just took five entire books but it doesn't matter now because they're together and everybody is happy! Now that Olympus is saved and with the new promise of the gods, there's a happy future for everybody.

--°--°--


I just loved this saga, as I said, it's my second favourite one. But don't cry if you think it's over ... because the Oracle spoke through Rachel and there's a new "big and important" prophecy! Which I'm happy for because that means NEW BOOKS! Yep, the story continuous with the saga "Heroes of Olympus" - which IS my favourite saga of all sagas - and trust me, is better. I didn't imagine how the story could improve, but Rick made it.

I hope you liked this post because it took me a while to write it, and if you haven't read the books, just give it a try, you wont regret it!

Here's Rick Riordan's official web site - click HERE - and all the book's covers are from the official page.
