MY BARCELONA DIARY

I recently went on a long weekend trip to Barcelona to celebrate my boyfriends birthday and I loved it! I'd never been to Barcelona before but I did so much research before I went to find the best places to go.
Here's my style diary and go-to places in Barcelona, we found some amazing places.

DAY ONE
Lunch at Copasetic - amazing food with lots of gluten free and vegan choices.
Park Guell - my favourite touristy place we visited!
Dinner at Elephant Lounge - the food and vibe here was perfect. We ended up staying there all night trying their different cocktails, definitely recommend if you're visiting Barcelona!

What I wore: Coat Zara  |  Top Zara  |  Jeans J Brand  |  Flatforms Adidas  |  Bracelet Miglio


DAY TWO
Brunch at Flax & Kale - I fell in love with the interior here, especially the bathroom! The food was really nice healthy food with a huge selection of juices and shakes. If you like to eat good clean food, this is a great place to go in the centre of the City.
Cable Car - we did the cable car from the top of Montjuic and the cable car across the port, both give you great views but I would definitely recommend the one at Montjuic more.
Dinner at Negro/Rojo - I found this amazing restrauranbt online, the top floor (Negro) is European food  and the bottom floor (Rojo) is Japanese, of course we chose the floor with sushi but I would like to go back and try Negro because Rojo was so good!

What I wore: Coat Zara  |  Jeans Topshop  |  Flatforms Zara  |  Hat Poppy London |  Glasses Hook Ldn


DAY THREE
Las Ramblas Market - one of the most famous markets in Barcelona and we were lucky enough to be staying right round the corner! We visited the market a few times while we were there, I loved the fresh fruit and juices.
We went shopping here there and everywhere around the City, we walked miles! But I managed to find this amazing perfume shop in one of the shopping centres. I was in there for ages smelling all the perfume, definitely worth a visit - Drops & You.


DAY FOUR
Basilica of the Sagrada Familia - amazing! A definite touristy must-see in Barcelona. Book your tickets online first, we did but the queues were huge for those who didn't.
Late lunch at Luzia - I saw this restaurant on a bloggers instagram who lives in Barcelona and I wasn't disappointed. I can't wait to go back and go for dinner because there was so much on the menu I could've eaten!

MY NADIA MINKOFF

I haven't written in a while because I had a long break over the Christmas period! My brand is also launching on ASOS Marketplace next week, so I've been really busy with that and I haven't had the time to blog. 
But I'm back and blogging about a necklace I recently styled in a post that I love. 

Shop Nadia Minkoff here.

PINSTRIPES

Top Forever 21 | Jeans Guess | Trainers Adidas Originals | Bracelet Miglio

This outfit is probably one of my favourites so far! I don't normally shop a lot in Forever21 but I saw this when I was shopping in London and love it, I have worn it so much. 
The trainers are one of my favourite pairs of shoes, I love Adidas Originals but I wanted something a little different so I loved the added platform. 
This is my first outfit post with my Miglio bracelet, I wear it aaaaall the time. Even though it's a bangle, I like to wear it up my arm like I have done here. I've doubled it up with a silver one, but I wear them on their own as well. I love them!

BOYFRIEND SHIRT & RIPPED JEANS

Coat Zara | Shirt ASOS | Jeans Topshop | Necklace Nadia Minkoff | Boots Zara

My first outfit post with my new coat and boots which I absolutely love! I managed to get my hands on one of the last pairs in the whole of London after wanting them for months. They're the perfect dupe of the Dior boots! 
I recently got this necklace from Nadia Minkoff and even though it's quite a formal necklace, I wanted to style it casually and I loved it with the oversized shirt. I think it makes the perfect Christmas present!

SKY GARDEN

Top Zara | Jeans Guess | Shoes Zara

My birthday outfit at one of my favourite places, the Sky Garden! If you haven't been there yet, the tickets are free, you can get them online here. They are released 3 weeks before so make sure you get in there fast! It was quite a rushed visit as we crammed too much into two days, so I definitely want to go back, probably for dinner as they have a restaurant there that looks amazing! 
I got the top and shoes for my birthday, I've wanted a pair of platformed shoes for ages and these from Zara are so reasonably priced too. The jeans I picked up at a clothes swap and I've worn them so much, definitely a good find.

BERNERS TAVERN REVIEW


For my birthday this year, me and my better half went to London for dinner and cocktails then we stayed overnight in a Boutique hotel and did crazy amounts of shopping, expect lots of new outfit posts! I didn't manage to get any photos of my outfit as we were in a rush! But I wore a silky blush pink dress from WRT here
I've wanted to go to Berners Tavern for ages now so I was really excited when we booked a table and I definitely wasn't disappointed. 
The ambience and decor is amazing, and the meal was one of the best I've had! We didn't get starters because there wasn't anything we fancied, plus we were so hungry. For main course I had the Roasted Cod with Prawn and Smoked Mussel Risotto,  it was aaaamazing. If you like fish, I would definitely recommend.
For dessert I had the Dark Chocolate Tart with Mint Ice Cream and Cookie Crumb, because I love anything that involves mint chocolate! 
Berners Tavern is definitely in my top 3 favourite places to eat, so I would definitely add it to your list of places to go. I will be booking again soon!

MY BIRTHDAY RECAP

It was my birthday on Friday and I had a really nice weekend away in London. We went to the Sky Garden in the day, if you haven't been I would definitely recommend and then to Berners Tavern in the evening, I'm going to post my review on Berners Tavern on Friday.
We went shopping on the Saturday and I got so many new clothes. They'll be lots of outfit posts coming up with my new things and the Sky Garden outfit will be coming really soon! But for now I've just posted a little preview of some of my favourite things!

CROPPED FLARED JEANS

Top Topshop | Jeans Topshop | Shoes ASOS

This is my first post in my all time favourite shoes, they've sold out now and I couldn't find a good enough alternative!
Each item in this outfit is one of my favourites in my wardrobe. I can't get enough of these jeans, and they only cost me £10 in the Topshop sale! 
I love the way this top fits and I know they do it in different colours now, which I have linked below.
Alannah shot this outfit a couple of weeks ago, when we had a some sun, but you could replace the V Neck Top with a jumper easily for the colder weather.

CULOTTE JUMPSUIT


Jumpsuit New Look | Belt ASOS | Sliders & Other Stories

So now Summer is officially over, I have to post my last summery outfit for this year! I will definitely wear this jumpsuit in winter with some nice boots and a coat though, probably evening only.
These sliders are my favourite that I got from & Other Stories in the sale a few months ago, I haven't worn them as much as I'd liked though and it's probably too cold now. Have to wait till next Spring!
