MANGO gift waiting for me ๐Ÿ™‚

Gorgeous view from my balcony!


We went vintage shopping! Bought the amazing vintage hat I’m wearing!

Richie, Chiara’s boyfriend, must have gotten sick of taking photos of us. He’s a troooper!



Ended our night at Big Fish. Sushi, sushi, and more sushi! Here with Chiara and Andy! Wonderful meeting these girls! They are so fun!

I am here in beautiful Barcelona, Spain! This pretty much covers my first day in Europe. So so exciting! I arrived early Monday morning and checked into the beautiful Hotel Omm. The flight was pretty long, about 12 hours total, and I was definitely a bit jetlagged but there was no way I was just going to take a nap in my room. Instead, I decided to call and meet up with Zoey Bittleston of Make Shift Model. We are so much alike it is insane. I’m happy the crazy world of blogging brought us together. I swear she is my other half. . . on this continent of the world! ‘m so lucky to have her this week to show me around the city and take me to all the best spots. We also caught up with Chiara Ferragni of The Blonde Salad here as well. Chiara and I are both working on the MANGO project here in Spain. So amazing meeting her after reading each others blog for quite some time. I loved getting to know a bit more about her and her Italian background. Walking through the bustling streets, they introduced me to the European culture and lifestyle. We went for vintage shopping and coffee. Me, asking for something like Starbucks grande vanilla latte at an underground coffee house was hilarious. You see, coffee here is cherished and is appreciated. Thankfully, Chiara and Zoey gave me the run down. Grrr, us Americans…know nothing about coffee. hehee. There is still so much to see here and learn about! I’m excited for the rest of the week and can’t wait to getting started on the MANGO project! Stay tuned!!

    you look casual but os stylish. have you seen how amazing the photos are in the alley?? they are magnificent, the architecture of the alley is the perfect background for a very stylish photo. the pink blazer does wonders for your skin, it is like you are glowing. of course i love the leggings and the combination with the jeans shirt. you are showing us that a jeans shirt is not so hard to wear. it is so fun to see you girls having a great time, enjoy your stay in Barcelona.

    This looks like so much fun! I’m really happy for you that you got to go, I just realized it’s basically on the other side of the world for you. I’m going to Barcelona in may, but I wish I was there now! I’ll just be there with lots of boys and no way that they’ll take me vintage-shopping.

    About the coffee, I know: Europeans don’t really like crazy coffees. It’s basically coffee, espresso or cappuccino. I went to my parent’s hometown (a smaller city in Holland) and asked for a soy latte, the lady had no idea what that was!

    Hope you enjoy your time in Spain! xx
