She feel cold most of the time. She has feet and hands perspired. When she sleep, sometimes her head perspire. When she is playing some competition games (football) she always have very cold hands.

She only drinks sparkling water and milk. She dislike carbonanted juices. Dislike french fries, hamburger and all junk foods.
She don't have strong likes or dislikes (maybe because I know what to offer)

She has very fine hair blonde, nails are ok, and the skin is easily reddend and she scratches a lot.
