Headshot of me smiling

Sefina is derived from Joséphine, which is my given name. My mother says with all the peppermint tea I’ve drunk over the past two decades, it must course through my blood by now. Hence, the name of this blog: Made of Mint.

While I’ve been blogging for several years, Made of Mint came about in February 2017. This is a literary lifestyle blog, of sorts. It’s a platform for me to share things that matter to me, such as photography, food, and general observations. I also use this space to reinforce things I’m learning, such as Spanish and to discuss books I’m reading. In other words, this blog is about pursuing intellectual and creative curiosities.

You may subscribe to Made of Mint via Bloglovin’, Feedly or RSS.

If you’d like to get in touch, you may do so via email or Twitter. I’m also happy to connect over books on Goodreads.

And for the fun of it, here’s what I’m currently reading:

The House of Mountfathom
A Gathering of Shadows
