Summer of Love; Barcelona & Sitges

20160903_182502

I’ve been making the most of the surprisingly sunny British summer but had a moment to experience some proper heat on a weekend trip to Barcelona celebrating a wedding and generally getting out and about. Barcelona is one of my favourite cities due to amazing architecture, beautiful pristine clean streets and a rich artistic heritage. Barcelona also has some half decent beaches in the centre, making it a dreamy location, plus some more impressive ones on the outskirts, Castelldefels and Sitges. The wedding took me to a quaint suburb, Sarria where I was hosted in a stunning farmhouse and ate the best Spanish and European food til I couldn’t move! I had an action packed weekend and came back needing another holiday but it was all worth it!

Dreaming of Ibiza and Formentera

IMG_20150909_190444195

Now that winter has properly arrived here in London it seems like the perfect moment to mentally revisit my Ibiza and Formentera break – a girls trip this September. Its definitely helping me get over my winter blues even if I’m now am itching to be transported to any hot place with a beach right now. For now the pics will have to do. My trip wasn’t the typical 18 to 30’s clubbing venture and I was pleasantly surprised to see how much more the island has to offer. The landscape is dramatic and the north of the island- where we stayed is calm and serene. Plus I even got to do business when visiting the famous hippy market, Punta Arabi, in Es Canar. I brought some amazing pieces back for my market stall at Broadway market‘s schoolyard and will be also adding them soon to www.realmoftreasure.com
