HI, MY NAME IS… Kristina Carrodeguas
MY TWITTER HANDLE IS… @livwonderfilled
MY BLOG URL IS… www.livingwonderfilled.com
I’M FROM….I was raised between South Florida and East Tennessee, USA. I consider myself from both those places.
ASIDE FROM BLOGGING, I ENJOY…Walking, travelling, yoga, reading, finding cute cafes in new cities.
I’M CURRENTLY WATCHING…Currently bingeing Harry Potter before I start on Grace & Frankie.
I’M CURRENTLY READING…I’m in between books at the moment!
I GOT STARTED BLOGGING IN…I got started blogging about music and beauty in 2013 (I think!) but the blog I run is actually my third blog. I wasn’t ready to be a blogger when I initially started.
MY BLOGGING PROCESS INCLUDES…Most of my content is travel related, so it requires I travel! I’m also working on some Madrid content, so I have been exploring Madrid a ton! I usually take notes on my experiences as I’m having them so I don’t forget things. The next step is to begin the photo edit process. First I narrow down photos, then edit the blog post text, then edit the photos again to fit in with the information I’ll actually be sharing. I usually have three or four rounds of photo editing and narrowing down. Then, once the pictures are in the post, I edit two more times by reading aloud and making sure it makes sense.
I BLOG ABOUT…travel, plus size lifestyle, expat life in Madrid.
I MOSTLY BLOG AT…Ideas come all the time, but I try to blog in the evenings and weekend mornings.
MY GREATEST BLOGGING ACHIEVEMENT SO FAR IS…Making friends with people in my blog niche! That sounds cheesy but it’s true. It’s nice to be able to message someone you look up to with a quick question and know they’ll answer.
WHEN I’M BLOGGING I LISTEN TO…When I’m editing photos, I listen to acoustic pop music, like Ed Sheeran and different covers on Spotify Singles. When I’m writing I listen to a focus playlist on Spotify, it’s kind of like upbeat elevator music.
MY FAVOURITE SNACK/DRINK WHILE BLOGGING IS…Coffee and water! I don’t like eating while I’m typing though.
IF I HAD A BLOGGING SUPERPOWER, IT WOULD BE…To be able to write a blog post out on the plane home from the trip. I usually have to take some time to process the experience fully before I can write an honest post though!
IF I COULD INTERVIEW ANYONE ON MY BLOG, IT WOULD HAVE TO BE…At the moment it would probably be Helene Sula from Helene In Between because she is all the travel blogger goals and she’s also an amazing blogging resource!
IF I COULD RECORD A VLOG WITH SOMEONE FAMOUS IT WOULD BE…Sophia Bush, because we’d probably be on some cool adventure with Eddie Bauer, as she partners with them often, or we’d be at some wonderful event for women’s rights.
OTHER BLOGS I GET INSPIRATION FROM ARE…
I LOVE BLOGGING BECAUSE…I love blogging because I love to write. I love being creative while also sharing my experiences. I also love the people that blogging has brought into my life!
