As the tea lover that I am, I am always looking for teahouses, salons and cafeterias where to enjoy tasty and naturals teas and that have an upstanding decoration. Akashi is a very authentic tea house, Japanese bar and photo gallery where Japanese sweets are in order, tatamis are included, and the service is exceptional. Located in the centre of Barcelona (c/Rosselló 197) it is definitely a must go place for those of you who, like me, enjoy this drink.

Ciao Milano


On one of my previous posts I already talked about my (not so recent) trip to Milano to celebrate my birthday. Being sincere, it is not one of my favorite cities (my boyfriend didn't really like it) but that doesn't mean we didn't enjoy it at its best. We loved getting lost around little streets, staring at the best fashion stores, drinking (that I have to admit) the best cappuccinos of our lifes, and learning about amazing concepts as ''il aperitivo''. Needless to talk about the majestic Duomo and the italian's restaurants charm.

One of the things I like the most about traveling is discovering beautiful places, charming cafeterias and others alike. Luckily enough, Barcelona is one of the cities that has a lot of hidden gems that fulfills my wanderlust when I don't have money or time to go abroad.

Two weekends ago I went for the first time to a bookstore-cafeteria called +Bernat. There, surrounded by books and sipping a delicious cappuccino I concentrated on uni readings while being in a beautiful place all at once.

For those of you who are in the city, I recommend you +Bernat to go with friends just to chat, to study, get lost going through its shelves full of interesting books or simply to relax in a good surrounding.

Birthday girl

It was my birthday on Friday (21!) and I can definitely say it was one of my bests so far. How did I spend it? In Milano, with a wonderful person, eating lots of pasta, drinking amazing cappuccinos and just relaxing à la italiana. There's more celebration to come, and I can't wait, but meanwhile I'll leave you with a little sneak-peak.

After an amazing month in New York and Florida, I came back to Barcelona on the 13th of August (thanks American Airlines for all of the delays I had to deal with...). So far the days here have been quiet and relaxing, spending time with the loved ones that I hadn't seen in a long time, and dealing with the heat of the City. 


One of the best things in Barcelona in August are the festivities of the Gràcia neighborhood. My favourite part of it all? Visiting the streets that the neighbors have thematically decorated to win the competition that takes place every summer in Gràcia.



Having my little Marilyn moment in this incredible Michael Kors skirt (I can't stop wearing it!).

This week has been busy, and the next one is probably going to be one of the most hectic and stressing of the year, with three finals that are closer than around the corner. Despite all of this stress, though, there are a few things that keep me smiling, like taking naps with my beautiful brother/dog or sending notes to my dad via him, receiving flowers from my significant other or treating myself to macaroons to instantly be in a better mood.
