Caelum


And here comes another Bcn recommendation if you are close to Portal de l'Angel and want to take a break from the crowds. Caelum is a very special place with a lot of character and history on its stone walls. You can have a tea or coffee with one of the many sweets and cakes made by nuns and monks of the main monasteries of the country. 



They also host live music downstairs, you can check more info in here.








And this little piece of heaven is located in:

CAELUM

Osor

We arrive to Osor town absolutely by chance. We had never heard about it before and I  will just tell you that we took the car and let my nephew-dog take the lead.
It is not that we  let him drive, but we couldn't agree in where to go so we decided that we will follow the direction of his head  in all the following crossings. And so this is the story of how our  dog  took us to this little town called Osor.  Not necessarily a very meaningful story....
Anyway, we  first ,we arrived to Susqueda swamp...







...and after a dog's swim and many, many curves, we arrived in this cute town.

Brunch & Cake

I really love to have Brunch in this place. It is so cute and the food is really good and kind of healthy :))
Whenever my friend C and I want to treat ourselves we meet there. Normally for lunch, and then we walk  to Enric Granados 145 to their Cup and Cake store and have desserts there.





All the pictures are taken from their website.

Project Life obsession

Hello strangers!
Since I have discovered Project life I am kind of obsessed with it. I am that weirdo watching You Tube videos of Becky Higgins core kits to see all the designs of the cards and searching for cute layouts on google images. And after falling in love with those below, I 've finally decided to start my own PL.








Aren't they just beautiful? Just click on the images to go the owner's blog and get more inspiration.

Of course I am just a beginner and I don't expect my PL to look not even 1/100 part of that, but is always good to watch talented people's work and hope blindly to grasp some ideas.

About the rule of following a page per week... I am not even going to try it. I like the idea of having a photo diary and documenting the everyday life, but I don't have a printer and I I have like 33.000 pictures stored in my computer so I prefer to print some of those pictures that I already have .  I will start doing a PL of 2013, so I can just send to the print shop about 300 pictures at the same time and get a good price and start working about the layouts. I found a simple 30x30 craft folder which I will decorate and I bought some photo pockets pages ( design A and C).

Here is my kit:



About the filler and journal cards...There are so many beautiful designs and frebbies on  the internet, but I decided to get the mini kit "Polka Dot Party" of Dear Lizzy, and I am really happy with it. I love the designs and the color scheme and all the cards are so easy to combine. I still haven't thought of the cover page, but I couldn't wait to see how did the mini kit looked on the photo pocket pages, and it took me 2 minutes to do a sample cover page. I was just  trying the kit but it shows how easy it is to combine all the cards. I also have a Maggie Holmes 6x6 stack in case I need some extra 6x4 or 3x4 filler cards.

Volta al món restaurant ( RTW Restaurant)

Hello strangers,
For the first post of 2014 I have a restaurant recommendation: Volta al món wich means"Round the World"in catalan.
I loved the place. The idea is to order some dishes to share with your friends so you can have a taste of different cuisines of the world. And the decoration is just perfect. If you enjoy travelling you will love this place. Have a look:


The picture is from their website, where you can have a look of the menu and check prices. And this little jewell is located in C/ Muntaner 51 (Barcelona), very close to Plaça Universitat. They host live music last saturday of the month, and be aware that it is closed  on sundays and mondays.

Smash Book


Ok, I just couldn't resist, I had to get one...a Smash Book. They are so pretty and I love the idea to start working on my creativity. I have always been really clumsy with all de arts and crafts but I like the idea to create something with my hands so ...here it is! I can't wait to fill it with projects, ideas, little draws and, of course, pictures and memories.


















I must admit it was a  very hard job to choose one smash book,  this post from Patricia in "De Scraperlo" was really helpful. It is in spanish but you can find all the links to see the interior pages of each Smash Book model on it.

Hello, new tools, let's get started ;)

Poland IV: The Mountains


And this is the last post about Poland. Have a look of this beautiful mountains! My friend took us to the lowest mountain she could find and she still was afraid we wouldn't make it to the top..ha ha   :))). But we did it. And we had this lovely views. 









And have a look at the picture below, you can see two different countries on it : Poland on the left side and Slovakia on the right. We took a boat ride in the Pieniny National Park that finnished in Szczawnica and it was great.






In Szczawnica ( a very cute town ) you can rent a bike to go to Slovakia trough the Pieniny Road, which borders the river with amazing views of it. And it is closed to cars : just pedestrians and bikes (yesssss).





And with this breathtaking views I finnish the Poland posts. I loved it in there and I feel very lucky and grateful for having been invited there and which such a good company :))) . Let's be honest, 2013 had been  such a shitty year for me...And this trip gave me such a good energy and brought back a little bit of the person I use to be in London. So tank you, thank you, thank you x10000. And let's start planning for BCN or N.Y.... ;)))))))
