Happy Tuesday!

Here's a quick overview on our trip out to the Park Guell in Barcelona! The designs by Antoni Gaudi was amazing as usual but sad to read how he didn't get to finish it which ended up being made into this park. Either way, it was nice to visit and if you plan on getting in during peak season.. order your tickets online! Saves you a lot of time. :)

The weather was very hot and humid so I opted for this low-back Jada dress by Brandy Melville that I had picked up during my trip to NYC. I absolutely love this dress so much that I actually bought it in another color and wish I can just get all the colors that Brandy Melville offers! hehe.. Since the back was so low, I had to pair it with this pretty lace bralette from Madewell x Honeydew which was SO comfy!

Continuing from where I left off from our Paris trip, we went off to Barcelona next which was just as amazing! We actually never thought about heading to Spain before but after doing lots of research, I'm so glad we did! So here's Part 1 from our trip to beautiful Barcelona. :)  

1. Cathedral de Barcelona just around the corner.
2. Pulpo a la Gallega - Galician Style Octopus,
3. Grilled cuttlefish at Cerveceria Catalana,
4. St Josep La Boqueria all day everyday. 
5. Plentiful of fresh organic juices. Favorite was maracuya (passionfruit)!
6. Traveling through the streets.
7. Delicious seafood paella at Los Toreros.
8. Pink pitaya (dragonfruit) at the La Boqueria.
9. Snack of churros with warm dipping chocolate.
10. Sagrada Familia partially under construction.
11. Breath-taking interior of the Sagrada Familia.
12. A wooden door - gracies.
13. Pulpitos a la plancha at Bar Central.
14. Jamon everywhere even with a museum. 

Hope you enjoyed the photos! Stay tuned for Part 2 next week!

Happy Tuesday!

Trying to play catch up on all my posts which includes these photos from when the Hubs and I decided to take a day trip up to Canada to attend the Richmond Night Market. Each Spring/Summer in Richmond, there would be this awesome night market filled with good food and booths of trinkets. But the whole reason why we would go is for the food of course! The yummy curry fishballs to the lamb skewers. They're all oh-so-good! I would consider myself lucky to live only 3 hours away from Canada. hehe.. :) 

I would also like to thank everyone who entered my Nordstrom giftcard giveaway! The winner is...

JoAnna C!

I've sent you an email already so please check and respond back within the next 48 hours. :)

Lastly, I recently been in contact with Cheap Tribus by Urban Tribus (based in Seattle) who just launched a funding campaign that started yesterday for their Shop by Lifestyle which you can see below on more info:

The campaign will fund their plans to bring high-end fashions and the products of small designers to those who may not have access to them. Such as individuals who has busy lives and do not have time to shop for them or people who live in small towns/rural areas. Also, people will have the opportunity to nominate local designers that they like to become part of this project. The funds that they raise will be used for inventory which also means more designers and more choices for their customers.

If you help them out by donating, you will receive a perk! Such as giftcards towards purchases to their site which you can use yourself or give as presents to your friends and family especially with the holidays coming up. Or discount codes in addition to the giftcards. It all depends on your donation. :)
