BARCELONA DIARY

I have enjoyed so much this weekend in BCN that I can only think in coming back. These are some pictures of our little adventure



We started on Friday night, once we arrived we could appreciate that all the streets were decorated with Christmas lights WONDERFUL!

Afterwards we went to have dinner to EL LOBO where you can find an incredible decoration. I highly recommend to have  "berenjenas con miel" delicious!



Saturday morning we went to have a healthy breakfast to La Boqueria, wich is the typical spanish market that has become quite touristic: smoothies, juices, bakery, fruits, bombons...are the things you can find over there


 After that, we went to Las Ramblas, it's such a beautiful place!


And we found this!



Have a walk through El Born streets is what I enjoyed the most: nice shops, bistros and traditional building will make you fall in love with this neighborhood







We went to have meal to Luzia restaurant: you can find a traditional oven where they make delicious pizzas



Then we went to Paseo de Gracia. It makes me feel like in Champs Elysées. This is the place where you can find the best boutiques and also, one shop that we found amazing called vinçon.
At vinçon's you can find lots of things related to home decor, very useful cooking tools, toys to improve creativity, cool watches, cool stuff for your desk and so on. Buuut what's more important!: You can order online  
http://www.vincon.com/

We were very tired however, when it is about eating great food we do our best so, we had dinner at Negro y Rojo restaurant. The food is delicious and the staff is great. Definitely it was a good choice.



Next day was our last day and we could not leave without visiting La Sagrada Familia. It's said that it is going to be finished by 2028 so we will have to come back to see the final result. However, we already found it amazing and incredibly beautiful.



As we are from Madrid we want to see the sea whenever we have the possibility so we went to the harbor and we saw the best views of barcelona while eating at Pez vela restaurant http://grupotragaluz.com/eventos/pez-vela/



It was quite funny because we found out that all restaurants we visited were from the same group: grupo tragaluz But we didn't do that in propose!

So I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I did in BCN

PACKING FOR BCN

Yes! tomorrow I am leaving Madrid for the weekend! I am soooo happy : ) I am going with my boyfriend N. to Barcelona and I can't wait for it! There are a lot of things to do: tourism, shopping, taste good food and drinks, go dancing, go walking next to the beach...

Sohere I am packing for tomorrow's travel in the smallest suitcase that I have as I want to take it with me in the plane. Now is when the tetris game starts.

I use my bed to be able to see at a glance all my looks and check if everything matches together. Well,  I guess that everybody do the same thing...


(*) the black thing you see in the right corner are black t-shirts

During the days I try to wear the same coat + scarf + shoes + bag so I have to find  3 outfits that matches with that package. And for the 2 nights I choose same heels and bag so that I do not have to package a lot of things.
 
This is going to be the outfit for tomorrow: I have to go to the office so I have chosen this jumper that makes me feel a little bit dressed up and it goes well with a black blazer on top of it so.... I am saved!



I will use the same shorts for the next day for going sightseeing in Barcelona, but I will pair it with a denim shirt  and a necklace.



For the last day I will be wearing jeans with a jumper--> this is a very casual and comfortable look that I love because it is completely different from what I wear during the week. You can see all that day outfits in the first picture

I love to use bags to put everything together in the suitcase: a bag for the heels, for the night look bag, for underwear, for necklaces, etc...I think this is something we all learn from mothers. This is the best way to have a tidy suitcase and to avoid showing all your belongings which sometimes can be embarrassing...


This is the way I check that I have everything ready for the travel. The global picture is very useful for me as I can see if every outfit will be good looking with the day/night package of: coat + bag + shoes

However, if we left something at home, we can always go shopping! ; )

WELCOME DEAR FALL

It has been a while since my last post as last month has been a mess: changes at work, special tests and competitions, lots of work plus meetings plus travels...but what's more important: my sister has had her second baby!

I had to buy new blazers to make much easier make new combinations with my current clothes. As you can tell I have become a working girl during the lasts years, so most of the clothes I buy are to complete my working outfits. I hope you do not find it boring! By the way, if you know some blogs with working outfits inspirations, please let me know

This is from zara (this season): very useful with beige pants believe me! And also with the black ones as I sometimes end up wearing tooo much black

 


The other one is from H&M also from this season. I really love this colour as I am blonde and I have really white skin so I find this color illuminates me.



This is another purchase focused just to make the answer of: what I am going to wear tomorrow at work?  easier: yes please, I need a pair of black shoes.




They are from Zara and I think you can find them still at shops. Truth be told: they are not very comfortable although the do not have high heels (be careful)


As I have extremely white face tone, I love pinks when fall has come (acabo de hacer una rima en inglés, olé!) My favorites for this month are: pink lips + cheeks

Rouge pur nº19  from Yves Saint Laurent




Flamingo Sleek make up blush. This is a good choice as it is cheap and it stays all day


Everyone that knows me can swear that I am an eyeliner addict (not very proud of this, but well, there are worst things in life). I bought one that was waterproof and I finally couldn't used it as I found it very difficult to remove and I thought my eyelashes could be damaged so I decided to not use waterproof eyeliner anymore.

I was telling this story to one of my colleagues that works with make up products and she gave me this new eyeliner from maybelline. My first impression was that it was not an eyeliner, it was a marking pen or something! However, as I had no other option, I had to used it the next morning aaaaaanddd....I LOVED IT! It's easy to use, quick and very easy to remove. One thing I would improve about it: it has a light black colour and I prefer dark black but you can finally have dark black if you go twice over your line.




Last beauty / self-care product is this essie product for nails: it makes my nails stronger and they look beautiful with only one cope of this. I am a real mess when I have my nails painted by myself so this is the perfect solution to have a good-looking nails without wearing any other nailpolish


Plans for the weekend? If you are in Madrid you can visit the exposition of Hubert de Givenchy in the Thyssen Museum (I love this museum!)
http://www.museothyssen.org/thyssen/exposiciones_actuales/122

I highly recommend you to go to La Maruca restaurant where you can find typical  food from Santander. Good food,  nice deco and beautiful people!

Last recommandation, one film: Le premier jour du reste de ta vie. It's funny, it's real and its is very french (that I love)


Hope you enjoy your week-end

Bisous
