Barcelona 2012

The second half of out holiday we spent in Barcelona for 4 days. Our bus from the festival dropped us off at Barcelona Airport and then grabbed a taxi to our hotel the H10 Montecada.

My mum could not stress enough about how bad pick pocketing is in Barcelona, so this was my Anti-pick-pocketing device and i must say it worked very well as well as looking cute.

We were so lucky to have a gorgeous roof terrace at our hotel that had amazing views.

Day one outfit
Dress - Topshop

Day two we visited the Nou Camp. I was very dubious about going and worried about being bored but I did enjoy myself. I would recommend to a girl who's boyfriend is a big football fan like man, i promise you wont be bored and like me you could use it as a bargaining tool for more shopping time.

Shopping after Nou Camp in Diagonal Mar Shopping Centre where I found Inglot (Yay)

After shopping we spent an evening the wandering around the gothic quarter

Day two outfit
Dress - Topshop
Belt - Zara
Sandals - Zara

Few cocktails in the heavy metal bar 'Bollocks'

The Next day we visited La Sagrada Familia, probably the number one attraction I would recommend to visit even if you are not religious in any way. The cathedral is mind-blowingly beautiful. I would also recommend getting the lift up to the top (I think it was an extra 3 Euros) for some amazing views and a little more of the cathedral you don't see from the outside.

Day three outfit
Dress - H&M
Belt - Bershka
Sandals - H&M


La Ramblas

I would love a drawer like this with all my jewellery in

On day four we visited the Jaume Cathedral as we were walking past it to visit the Ramblas food market, there we brought some lovely fresh fruit cups and juices to give us energy for the walk up to Parc Guell. Another Gaudi landmark with lots of usual buildings, again with lovely views and the bonus of it being free to visit.

Day four outfit
Dress - Primark
Belt - Bershka
Bag - Bershka
Shoes - Topshop
Necklace - Primark
Sunglasses - Ray Ban

As it was our last night in Barcelona we treated ourselves to a more expensive meal and enjoyed a few glasses of champagne and cocktails. Unfortunately as we were roaming so many side streets I am not 100% sure where the restaurant is to share with you guys, all i can remember is that it was at the lower half of the Ramblas and was in a large square amongst a few other restaurants.

Evening outfit
Shirt - Zara
Shorts - River Island
Shoes - Topshop
Sunglasses - Ray Ban

As my boyfriend is a photographer he couldn't resist some night shots of the city from the roof terrace.
