Hello... or should we say "hola"? Our first stop in Europe this year was Barcelona! We were so excited to finally visit Spain as it had been on our list for quite a while. We stayed in Costa Brava and we took a train to Barcelona for a few day trips. We absolutely loved Barcelona and are finally sharing our adventures with you all! Here's a look at what we did + our video travel diary!


La Sagrada Familia // You must see this if you travel to Barcelona! The building itself is stunning and if you aren't afraid of heights, you can go up to the top and observe all of Barcelona from up high! A little tip if you are looking for a good photo - op: there is a lake near the building where you can go to get the best angles of the building. Also, make sure you wear modest clothes (no tank tops).  If not, you will end up having to purchase a t-shirt or scarf to cover your shoulders before entering! We ended up with lovely Barcelona shirts since we were wearing tank tops 😂.

Xurerria Sagrada Familia // Of course we had to include a good place for the foodies out there! Churros are extremely popular in Spain and so so delicious! This particular "Xurerria" is highly praised and a great place to get a treat after visiting La Sagrada Familia! We can vouch for this place - the churros are insanely good (and huge!).

Park Güell // This famous park is so beautiful with so many amazing features. It is composed of beautiful architecture in the style of Gaudi and gorgeous gardens! There is so much color in this park!

Casa Batllo and Casa Mila // Both of these "houses" are absolutely stunning! They are built in the style of Antonio Gaudi (as is most of Barcelona) and Casa Mila looks "wavy". We did not go inside but we definitely recommend stopping to admire these two houses as you are wondering around Barcelona!

La Boqueria // This was one of our favorite places in Barcelona! La Boqueria is a huge public market situated in the Cuidad Vieja district of Barcelona and has so many different food options! We got fresh squeezed juices there but there are endless food options. You'll see in our video travel diary that the market is full of color with so much fresh fruit and yummy treats!

Las Ramblas // This pedestrian friendly street is bustling day and night as it is situated right in the center of Barcelona! As much as we love sightseeing, some of our best memories from traveling come from simply walking around. We try to immerse ourselves into the culture as much as possible and this street is definitely a hit for both tourists and locals.

Hello everyone! Summer is just about halfway over and temperatures are at an all time high. We LOVE getting a good tan on, so we spend quite a bit of quality time by the pool. Unfortunately though, too much sun exposure can make our skin very dry. We have been taking full advantage of pool days, and we also went to the beach twice this summer, and although we have been blessed with an olive skin tone that never burns, we did start peeling a little after our vacations, which is never pleasant. To keep our skin healthy and moisturized, we have tried endless amount of moisturizers and creams but what we often find is that some of the moisturizers are too heavy and make our skin feel too greasy. We finally found the cutest little set that is perfect for giving our skin the moisture it needs and keep us smelling good all summer, even in this crazy heat, so we felt we had to share with you guys! This Clinique Happy Treats set includes a body cream, hand cream, and a perfume spray. All the products in this trio have a refreshing and light scent which is exactly what we need for summer!  We have the individual products linked below, so feel free to check them out if you are looking for a way to keep your skin soft and smelling good this summer!
