A mini Barcelona guide, here it comes:

Bimba & Lola
Carrer de València, 272barcelona 2012

I love this store. Super chic and effortless cool. Wish we had it in Stockholm!

PNB Vintage

Avinyó, 29barcelona 2012

In El Raval area I found this vintage store where I basically wanted everything. Deeply regret not getting the red long pleated skirt…

 

Kasparo

Plaça de Vicenç Martorell, 4barcelona 2012

I fell in love with this café. Sitting in the sun spotting trendy people and ordering soy cappo or vino works pretty good for me. When I found out the place was Australian the coffee explained it all. I actually use to have a crush on Austrailian coffee shops out in Park Slope in New York (I know I’m swifting city but it’s true). Anyway that made me really happy.

Boca Grande

Passatge de la Concepció, 12

barcelona 2012 Did you know Barcelona is gin city? Well I didn’t until my friends took me to Boca Grande. Dangerously strong Hendrick’s cocktails yet delicious. What’s really cool is that this place has it all – a rooftop, a boqueria restaurant, a sophisticated colonial inspired bar area and a unexpeceted bathroom. Think a bathroom full of mirrors that’s becoming a night club after 1am. Absolutely nuts.

Happy Pills

Arcs, 6barcelona 2012

Looking for a treat? Well this is the place to go. Imagine tons of candy in superb cans.

Cornelia and CO

Carrer de València, 225

A cute industrial looking bodega with delicous fried artichokes. Perfect for a date!

Boqueria

Rambla, 91

barcelona 2012

Barcelona is known for it’s Boqueria and I think you should definitely go. Even though touristic there’s so much good commodities you can get your hands on.

Today is not an ordinary day, its’ Air Max Day. When Nike first released the Air Max 1 on March 26, 1987, it’s safe to say they released a revolution. Although Nike had been placing air cushioning into its shoes since 1979, it wasn’t until 1987 that it made this technology large and visible enough for […]
