If you’ve been following me on Instagram (and you should –find my profile HERE) you might have seen my photos from Barcelona last week and I wanted to share some of my top picks for a spring city break.
The after the stress of dissertation behind me my family and I escaped the grey April showers of the UK for sun, sleep and sangria in beautiful Barcelona! My favourite thing about this trip was the beautiful terrace in the apartment we stayed in, situated just off the Ramblas we loved having a little sun trap of our own in the middle of the madness of the central Barcelona streets. One of my must sees is the Placa Reial which is a square just off the central Ramblas, head here for amazing food and some of the best street entertainers.
hese slide on tan sandals from Next the day before my trip and they were actually the only shoes I wore the entire 6 days! Super comfy leather with an easy to wear design meant my feet didn’t hurt, even after walking for hours. When spring comes around I love introducing more colour into my wardrobe and tan becomes my new black.
Moisturiser with SPF
Especially after having very limited sun exposure over the winter months it’s very important to protect your skin with an SPF, the temptation can be to try and tan as quickly as possible if you’re not away for long but the kinder option for your skin is always a little fake tan or buildable bronzer if you’re looking for that summer glow. My favourite way to protect my skin is to make sure my daily moisturiser has an SPF included, I find that when my skin is hydrated I have so much more of a glow and top tip any natural tan you do pick up will last longer if your skin is well hydrated.
So I hoped you enjoyed a couple photos from my holiday and my must have city break essentials!
Hoping to post again soon,
