I have two more days to write stories about, but decided to space them out a little, so it doesn’t get too boring or repetitive! Today I’m sharing with you my two favourite outfits and two places to grab a paella and a quick snack.
Here are the links from days one and two if you missed them for some reason:
This is the red dress I wore the last day of our trip, and it gave me a massive confidence boost! Although it’s red and grabs the attention (something I’m not particularly fond of), it’s incredibly comfortable, and perfect, in my humble opinion, for a spring/summer holiday. I loved the length, the style and the tropical vibe!
I found this gem in Primark, the boots are from New Look, and the bag is unknown brand from ebay.
*Another shameless reminder to follow me on Instagram if you haven’t already*
No, that’s not a spelling mistake, but a t-shirt I’ve found a while ago, of course in Primark. And no, I’m not ashamed that I have so many stuff from there – everyone can wear Burberry coats and Gucci belts, but the real challenge is to style stuff that don’t have an expensive label slapped on them. And I’m by no means shaming those who wear designer pieces, I myself have a few, what I’m trying to say is that to me it’s more important how a person styles their outfits, rather than how many expensive items they wear.
Anyways, I styles this t-shirt with white jeans, pink trainers from Puma, and pink bag from Shein. I know you can see my socks (and some people get really annoyed at me for that, but that’s just the way I roll).
And as you can see, I’m slowly transitioning from outfits to food, and here’s the paella I’ve been dreaming of!
We ate at Gran Rambla, and now I’m researching it and see only poor reviews. Well, I can understand why – the venue was absolutely empty when we came in, but it took maybe good 15 minutes to find someone to take our order (although there were maybe 5 waiters just wandering around), only one waiter was speaking English (which I personally find unacceptable, especially considering that this restaurant is literally in the heart of the most touristy street), it took an hour and a half to get our dishes (yes, you’ve read that right), and the sangria tasted like juice. There were four or five ladies sitting on the table behind us and I saw that almost all of them got wrong orders.
Anyways, one of the waiters brought us some tapas as an apology for the long wait, and the paella was incredibly delicious (or were just way too hungry)! Perhaps it was my mistake that I hadn’t researched for a place to eat beforehand, but I guess everyone is allowed to have a bad tourist experience once in a while. But still, it wasn’t that bad – the place was quiet and the food was yummy. Now that I’m editing all those photos, I really start to crave some paella!
Again, not a spelling mistake, but one of the nicest spots to get some gelato! This place, on the other hand, was thoughtfully researched, and I saw a few friends posting photos of it on Instagram (social media is indeed influential). The lady serving there was speaking excellent English, was incredibly polite and created a really fun experience for us!
And I suppose that’s the end of the today’s post, thank you for staying till the end with me! If you’ve ever been to Barcelona please let me know your favourite places to eat!
