{Back From Barcelona}

We spent the long Easter weekend (we got Friday + Monday off & I took Tuesday off, too!) in Barcelona with my Mama. We met up with Nicole every day, enjoyed disgusting amounts of tapas and sangria, soaked up the sunshine (albeit a little chilly at times) and saw some incredible sights. It was a trip I will never ever forget. Having so much one on one time with my Mom is so special and I am cherishing every moment. I am not rushing to upload photos and blog this week as I am trying to soak up her last few days in Amsterdam. She takes off Monday, so I hope you guys can hang tight until early next week when I'll be back with photos from Barcelona (and I still have some from Edinburgh and St. Andrews to blog - I'm so far behind!). Here are some iPhone photos in the meantime! Have a great rest of the week :)

  26. Today's color in manolo blahnik outlet Brynn's gorgeous color series is yellow! And upon further investigation of my cupboards and closet it turns celine luggage out I have very little of this sunshiny color. I must fix that. The top board is a collection of things manolo blahnik online that I found around my house (yes Mila, I stole some of your toys for this photoshoot), and the bottom one is a few lovely yellow items that I wouldn't mind adding to my wardrobe.Before I delve into celine outlet the book though, I went to the ridiculously lush n' plush penthouse suite at the W London Hotel where celine bags AH antics have been going on all day and will go on late into the night. I've never seen a freestanding double basin island in a hotel bathroom before but this facilitated the WAH girls to set up a mini nail salon, complete with an MTV Cribs-style jacuzzi in the backdrop. I'll be celine bags disappointed if people don't take advantage of the tub and end up there with geysers on full blast and champers flowing.
