I was born in Spain all the way back in the 80s, where I lived until I graduated from university in 2003. I currently live in Oxford, in  the UK, a city I fell in love with from the first time I visited in my teens.

When I was growing up my dream was to be a journalist. I've always loved to talk, and my brother and I used to invent radio shows during car journeys. I did Journalism at university in Madrid, but when I moved to England my career took a very different path. I started working in retail and quickly moved into product development, which took me to Oxfam, where I have been for over 6 years. I love working for an organisation that exists to fight poverty and to help the most vulnerable people in the world, wherever they are. I am passionate about our work, especially our work with women. 

In December 2014 I started Sunshine + Glow to explore my creative side and have a go at writing in English, and I absolutely loved it! Since then I have connected with some amazing and inspiring people and enjoyed writing about what I feel passionate about.

Learning and exploring new things is what makes me get up in the morning. I'm always listening to podcasts, checking out new recipes, books, a new place to go to... I have a curious mind and discovering new things makes me very happy, as does sharing them with everyone I know.

I believe our health is the most precious gift we have and am a believer in taking good care of it, whether it is by eating good food, treating ourselves to a relaxing bath or staying active. Hiking and yoga are my activities of choice, as they keep me moving and slow me down at the same time (I can be a bit of an overthinker!). When it comes to beauty I have a preference for natural and organic products over those that aren't, but still use a mixture of the two.

For me food is both a way of nourishing our bodies and a social activity. I enjoy cooking and eating and have grown up in en environment that celebrates it. I love sharing the family recipes as well as healthier choices.

Hope you enjoy the time you spend here!
