Quickie OOTD: Jacket: F21, Handbag: CHANEL, Leggings: H&M, Shoes & Travel bag: PRADA

And away we go! 

The Hubs and I planned a Barcelona trip to celebrate 4 years of wedded bliss!  And I have to say it was by far the best trip I've ever taken in Europe!  I can't believe I'm saying this but I think I may love Barcelona even more than Paris *GASP* hahahahaha seems blasphemous from someone who claims to be such a francophile!

Everything about Barcelona was amazing.. the people, the food, the energy, the shopping! Everywhere you looked it was food and shopping, food and shopping.. and now if you know ANYTHING about me at this point you will know that those two things are two of my favorite things ever!  And everything was opened so late too (which sort of drive me nuts in Germany because everything closes at like 6!!!)

But first the Duty Free shop hahahahahaha.  I live for Duty Free shops!!!!!!!!  Ok not really but I really really really like them bahahahahaha.

The Queen of England's favorite tea!

Quick meal before catching our flight :) 

Sausage & Potato Soup


Chocolate granola & Yogurt

This was actually quite tasty hahaha.. I can't get use to European yogurt it just tastes different from American yogurt.. but I mixed in the chocolate granola and it was really yummy.

Ok so I admit it I totally bought this because they are in the shape of stars... but but.. they were actually REALLY yummy.. they tasted like FRIES! bahahahaha.  I think the aquarius drink was like a sports drink.. not bad.. definitely better than american sports drinks.

Our Hotel! 

Hotel Lobby

Ok so when we got to the hotel I had to pee and I found the lobby restrooms 


They had Ken & Barbie dolls as the door handles bahahahaha!  So bleepin' awesome!

Barbie with her handbag no less.. my kind of girl hahaha!

I found Hello Kitty in the bathroom!

Our Hotel Room

I love this - this was the control panel right next to the bed that controlled all of the windows, blinds and the lights even the bathroom lights! bahahahah although I don't really know why you would need to control the bathroom lights from the bed.

But to be fair when when we first got there I was playing around with it trying to figure out all the controls while the Hubs was taking a shower and I turned off the bathroom lights and really freaked him out HAHAHAHAHA. Ok so I guess the best use for it is to play a practical prank on someone tehehehe.

The bathroom had dual sided mirrors so you could see yourself standing in the bedroom. 

And then while standing in the bathroom which was pretty awesome because it prevented the Hubs and I from constantly fighting for the mirror because you know he has to do his hair and everything.


OMG the shower was soooooooooooo awesome - see the knobs in the picture??  It had like these 5 or 6 knobs that blasted water out of them when you pushed the button and it was SOOOOOO nice like a water powered massage.  Every day I stood in the shower for like an extra 5 to 10 minutes because it really helped to relax my back muscles.

We only just landed and the Hubs is already tired hahahaha. 

Time to hit the streets!

Las Rambles!

La Boqueria!

It's basically their giant open air market we loved it so much we went there 3 times on our trip haha!

All the yummy Jambon!!  

Unfortunately for me everything we saw the word "Jambon" anywhere, anytime the Hubs would yell out "JAM-BON-IT" with a "J"



All the yummy fresh squeezed juices! 

All of the fruit in Barcelona was soooooooooo fresh and sweet and cheap too!!! 

Cheese's Galore!

So much yummy fruit!



Crazy amount of seafood everywhere!


Nommy fried foods!

Salted fish!

I thought this was too cute!  

An egg store dressed up as a chicken coop! hehehehehe ok. I'm a dork.


I seriously wanted to eat everything!!  

Do you see the little fried quail egg on some of them?! 

Jumbo Chupa Chups!

I find it hard to contain my excitement when I see giant chupa chups HAHAHAHA.

Look at all those pretty mushrooms!

The Hubs found some sweets to bring home..  I have no idea what it is but tastes like soft caramel candy but it has a cake like texture to it! 

We found a tapas bar in the midst of all the fresh raw foods and we sat down for some grub.  I ordered a fish dish and it came with fried artichokes and sweet pepper!  It was delicious!!  I believe the fish was black cod which is my favorite fish ever!


When in Barcelona right?  Heh.. yeah right.. I had a sip but I thought it was just ok.

(Excuse my make-up less shiny face.. I always go make-up free when I fly because it just makes my skin feel awful!)

The tapas bar we were at!

The Hubs ordered the seafood plate! 

So delicious!  

It had black cod, tuna, squid, octopus, razor clams, scallops and shrimp.  The scallop was out of this word delicious and it was all sauteed in a butter garlic sauce.  

More of our trip to come soon!
