Wearing: Asos dress and sandals, Mecurialist Wrist cuff from Boticca, Jennifer Zeuner necklace, Jacquie Aiche finger bracelet, Mango rings.

A quick hola from Barcelona! I arrived at the start of the week to shoot a project with Mango (more on that later) and am so happy to now be able to spent time exploring Barcelona! I visited Barcelona on my first trip to Europe years ago which now feels like a lifetime ago, and I feel I am rediscovering it all as if for the first time.

The summer heat was a huge hit straight off the plane from Berlin. My hair decided to go crazy in the humidity while I tried cope with the late afternoon heat with this backless maxi. I am here for another few days and want to see as much as I can, if anyone has any recommendations I would be extremely grateful!!

    Head to the top of Mount Tibadabo for an awesome view of the city. We went up close to dusk and it looked amazing. Can’t wait for when I’m back in a couple of weeks- I’ll be sure to pack some backless/floaty dresses to get me through the heat!


  • Therese

    I’m sorry if this is too personal, but what bra do you wear with all your backless things? stick-ons, nipple pasties or au natural?

    I love Barcelona! I guess you already did this, but visit the Gaudi buildings and park! It really impressed me. Furthermore hold your purse tight when you walk over the Ramblas. If you’ve got a free evening you should definitely visit Sala Montjuic at Montjuïc Castle Gardens.

  • Quinn

    Parque Güell is a must!! Once there, you have to climb all the way to the top of the hill where you’ll discover amazing views and giant stone crosses! So picturesque!

    The W is a great place to sit back and relax. The view is incredible and the vibe is great! Perfect lounging with a cocktail at hand!

    Walking las ramblas is incredible! The smell of fresh flowers and e sound of the cute Spaniard playing the guitar are moments to remember!

    So much to discover in Barcelona! One of my favorite cities. Would love a reply!

    I trully recommend you to visit the “barri de gràcia” a little village inside the city, full of life, bars of tapas, music, friendly people…

    Also I recommend you the famous restaurant “Els quatre gats” http://4gats.com/ where Picasso, Gaudí, Granados, Nonell… used to go at the end of the 19th century and during the 20th century.

    And another amazing little place, that few people know: the rocamora foundation, http://www.rocamora.es/es/139980/Prensa.htm Manuel Rocamora was a collecionist of women’s fashion, art, objects, furniture… It’s not a turistic place at all and it’s amazig!

    You can go to the Hotel Vela and taste their cocktails and admire the amazing views. Or go tu the “Plaça de sant Jaume” and see how people dance the tipical “sardanes” -in this plaça there is an amazing art gallery!-.

    The tibidabo park http://www.tibidabo.es/en/homepage a funny way to spend your time in Barcelona, on the top of the mountain you get there by the teleferic and you’ll have an amazing views and good restaurants!

    I don’t know how many time will you be here, but it’s summer and the most amazing catalan place to stay in summer is “L’alt Empordà”, clear water and virgin beaches in the north of the region!

    -I wanna tell you something that you may don’t know, here in Catalonia most of people we don’t feel spanish, our lifestyle is different from the rest of the country. And there are a lot of catalan haters in Spain-.

    Hope you enjoy Barcelona!
