Barcelona Photo Diary: Day 1

Hello Loves,

I'm finally back home for good (or at least for the next months). After arriving from Barcelona, I went to my grandparents country house where I was this past week with my friends. I had a blast. It was so much fun. However, not everything is good and, up there, the access to the internet was almost impossible. So I am only able to show you the photos from Barcelona now. I'm going to divide it by days and this one was the first.
Because we arrived early in the morning we were able to enjoy the whole day. We stayed in an apartment that was very well located, right on the centre of this beautiful city. We were just less than five minutes far from Ramblas and, so, I was always passing by it. I was there just a few days before the Pope's visit to Madrid and a lot of the people who were going to go see him went to see Barcelona first. Consequently, the streets, monuments and subway were filled with tones of people from around the World, which made it a bit more difficult to visit the city and to walk on the Ramblas.
So, back to the first day. I went to Barceloneta which is the area where is located the beach and the Marine.
We also went to the Market, where I drunk the most delicious and fresh natural juice ever. The colours of the market were mesmerizing. It was a perfect start to my amazing stay.
I leave you "some" of the photos that we took. Enjoy.

Beach Lazy Days

Here are some photos from Algarve. The weather end up to get much better and a had a fantastic and relaxing time. My days consisted in going to the beach in the morning, having sandwiches for lunch, sleeping in the afternoon, going to the pool afterwards and at night I usually went for a walk on the town. I miss it there!

Algarve Diary

Hello everybody,

(I warn you that a lot of text will follow, so if you want to skip it, there are pictures in the end)

I've managed to have Access to the internet, but only for three days.

Although, I’ve been here in Algarve for five days I’ve only enjoyed two days at the beach

Five days ago, Sunday, after a seven and a half hour trip we arrived to the apartments. Then we went to the reception where there was the longest line ever (I’m exaggerating but it felt like it) so we only installed ourselves after a little bit less than half an hour later. After carrying all the luggages, me and my brothers rushed to the pool where we were for only half an hour later because we had to finish unpacking and get ready for dinner.

The next day, we went to the beach but after a while we had to return because it was so much wind and too much sand flying around, hurting our legs and, so, it was unbearable to be there. I couldn’t believe it, last year the weather was so warm. When we were by the pool, still in the morning, it started to rain. At first, because I was with my eyes closed, I didn’t realize it and thought my little brother was pouring water all over me but when I opened my eyes ready to tell him to stop it immediately I saw big drops of water falling and everybody started to get their things and going back in. It continued throughout the afternoon and so we had to stay in.

On day three, I finally got to stay an entire morning in the beach (yuppi!) but the weather wasn’t still perfect, the one I remembered from the last year. On the afternoon there was a lot of wind but I decided not to be defeated by the wind and I went to the pool.

Yesterday, the sun was shining and the sky was finally clear and so I had the most amazing morning at the beach. I went for a long walk till the other the end of the beach. I regret not having taken the camera with me. A big part of the beach was desert and the sea colors were magnificent. In the evening, I went to Tavira with my family and my mother friends and respective families. Maybe tomorrow I’ll show you some pictures.

For now I leave you some pictures from the second day.

I love pin-up illustrations. They usually portray women wearing vintage clothes and showing off a bit of the lingerie, sometimes even in a subtle way. They often portray women in a sexy, but at the same time innocent, way. We can see this illustrations on old (as well as new) calendars, in old adds and obviously on the internet.
Lately I've seen a lot of pin-up inspired looks and make up, who can be worn on daily basis.

Wikipédia definition: pin-up girl, also known as a pin-up model, is a model whose mass-produced pictures see wide appeal as popular culture. Pin-ups are intended for informal display, e.g. meant to be "pinned-up" on a wall. Pin-up girls may be glamour models, fashion models, and actresses.
