The medieval village of Pals

When we were little we use to spend summers in Pals, a beautiful town located in Baix Empordà, Girona. My sisters and I love coming back there, the mix of all our happy memories with the beauty of the landscape and the stunning medieval town is just perfect. Any excuse is good to come back to Pals.

Hot chocolate in "La Nena"

 My goodness, if you like chocolate you must  try a swiss ( Hot xocolate with cream) in "La nena", in Gracia . Simply delicious. This cute place is normally full of locals and you  probably will have to wait for a table, but trust me, it is absolutely worth it. This cafe has colorful little chairs and lots of games in their shelves that you can borrow to play with your friends or children. I just love it. here are some pictures from their Facebook page, but I think you should see it in person :))

Scrapbook workshop with Mariona Cardona

Hi there!
Last week my friend M and I went to our first scrapbooking workshop with Mariona Cardona.
We played with watercolors and gelatos and stamps and had lots of fun.

We made a really cute mini album and I decided that mine would be about London. I lived there for three years  and I loved it so much and learnt and had such a great time....
So here is the result, don't be to hard on me, this is my first scrapbooking experience ;)











We used the bind it all and papers from Cut and Paste ( Amy Tangerine) and Polka dot party (Dear Lizzy) collections. I love Mariona's style, it is modern and cute and stylish and not cheesy at all. Have a look of her blog.

Copenhagen


   I went to Copenhagen loooong time ago, and all this pictures are taken with  my little compact camera,which I still keep. It is fun though, to see which are the sensations a memories I keep from this weekend trip to Copenhagen after the years.
Basically, this is what I remember:

1. Goodlooking men everywere, really I saw like 3 or 4  Brad Pitts there, and everyone looks so fit, and arty. Of course girls are also so pretty that you just want to put a plastic bag in your head to avoid comparisons. Ha ha.... I am just joking, but I am sure you get the idea...

2. Design, art and live music everywhere, really, I should learn danish and move there.

3.Nyhavn: so alive, the sun was shinning and everyone was on the street sitting with some drinks and enjoying the good weather.

4. Christiania: a free town,a collectively controlled village in the middle of Copenhagen ? How amazing is that????

Paris

Oh la là........ Paris!!!!
The city of light and love, where everything and everyone looks chic, who doesn't love Paris?





This pictures are quite old now, it's already 5 years since my last trip to Paris, but one of my best friends recently moved there, and I am so visiting her  :))))






See that guy in the picture with the guitar? He was so damn good, do you want to hear him? He sounded like that (sorry for the bad video and voices ):

And if this isn't enough to make you love Paris, then you shoul really  have a look at...

Vilassar de Mar

Now that Summer is just round the corner and the good weather is starting, it is a good moment to take a train from Plaça Catalunya or Sants and go to any of the little towns of the coast of Maresme. The journey is just a bless if you sit on the right side of the train : you'll have a fantastic seaview once you leave Barcelona.

And just half an hour from BCN there is this cute town called Vilassar de Mar. The center of the village is always full of life with plenty of cafes and bars to enjoy easy life and relax before or after the beach.
