BARCELONA PART ONE

by TheChicItalian

Hope everyone is doing great! I’ve been super out of the loop since I got back from Barcelona. My social media channels are all over the place and I haven’t done anything yet for the posts this week. In other words: it’s been a mess haha. But let’s dive into the good stuff: Barcelona!

If you don’t already know, one of my friends moved to Barcelona this year so I try to visit her every couple of months. This time we actually did a lot of sight-seeing and walked around quite a bit {which is why I’ve been feeling so tired and unmotivated to get things done for the blog}. We didn’t really plan anything but I thought it would be fun to see the magic fountain or Font màgica de Montjuïc as it’s called {you can find more information here}. While we were walking over there we spotted people standing on the Arenas de Barcelona, which is a former bull arena turned shopping center, and thought to ourselves “we have to go on top of it!”. For only two euro’s it’s definitely something worth visiting. It gives especially a really cool view at night of the magic fountain plus a large part of the city. Another fun fact: there are lots of restaurants on top where you can grab a bite.

Before we even went to the magic fountain we grabbed dinner at Bacoa which is a Hamburgueseria {don’t look at me, that’s what they’re calling it!} in Barcelona & Madrid where you can put together your own freshly made burger. You get a card with a list of types of burgers, which type of meat you want, type of bread you want, sides and at the bottom you can write down your drink. Obviously I, in true Fiona style, forgot to fill in which meat I wanted and what I wanted to drink. I ended up going with a classic burger with fried potatoes and black truffel mayo {so good!}. Highly recommend it if you’re in Barcelona, even if you’re not a big burger freak.

This time I didn’t really went shopping like I did last time, I only visited the Sephora store, Corte D’Ingles and the NYX store because I wanted to get some beauty products. High on my wish list was the NYX brow pencil and their highlighter in ‘Ice Queen’ which I both got. I also stumbled on the Maybelline Fit Me concealer that I wanted to try out after hearing such great reviews about it. We only have the foundation version of it in the Netherlands so I grabbed the chance when I saw it. Another store we visited was the HEMA. This is actually a Dutch store that just opened in Barcelona. It’s funny to see that not only were there lots of Dutch people inside the store, they sell all these typical Dutch snacks and products.

Because of the warm weather we decided it would be nice to just chill out at Parc de la Ciutadella one afternoon which is this big, beautiful park where you can hang out. It has a historic fountain you have to check out if you visit. Also a good place to take some outfit shots {which we did}. Make sure if you visit that you know how to get there {we got a little bit confused and lost} plus that you bring your own snacks and something to drink. This was our initial plan but we couldn’t find a nearby supermarket and ended up paying way too much for drinks at one of the food trucks in the park.

I’ll be posting part two of the trip next week. I also filmed a lot during the trip so I’ll probably be sharing that on here. It’s more of an impressions video of the things I’ve done during my time in Barcelona. I wanted to vlog but I’m just not the type to casually walk around and talk into the camera {it just feels embarrassing} plus I would mispronounce literally everything. Maybe in the future haha.
