About Me


To have a friend at every corner of the world :)


I like french cheese, i like wine and beer and pastis and tequila and whiskey but unfortunately, due to a recent over consumption, can no longer drink sangria..pity!

Anyway, other than that, Southern California, born and raised :] Mexican parents, so yup, I'm awesome. Live in Toulouse, France :D one of the most beautiful cities I've ever had the pleasure of meeting ;P I do enjoy making all kinds of smiley faces with the keyboard, have two best friends: One dutch, one french...i love cucumbers and tomatoes...i could live off of those things...mmm i'm ticklish everywhere..hmmm when i was little (and every once in a blue moon nowadays) i used to daydream and wish and hope so badly that I could somehow be one of the last people in a barnes n noble and somehow be overlooked by security and accidentally get locked in with the all those wonderful smelling books to my disposal, causing the most awesome impromptu sleepover of my LIIIIFEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!!

a girl can dream right?


I'd rather laugh with the sinners than cry with the saints, the sinners are much more funoh and..
