I am soo excited because in 5 days I will be on my way to Rio de Janeiro (aka my homeee *.*)!!! I don´t know if people know this but in Brazil clothes are quite expensive. What happens is that we have lot of boutiques but we don´t have so many department stores. Recently it opened ONE forever 21 in Rio and all the girls went crazy haahah! We don´t have H&M yet :(, when I am in Brazil and I want to buy clothes I go to Zara because is one of the most “affordable”. Is really sad that clothes are so expensive in Brazil, that´s why before going there I do a little shopping over here hehe.

As I showed in one previous post, Rio de Janeiro style is very colourful and warm, so I choose some fun items:

1. Shirt from Bikbok – great to use with a jeans short and some havaianas, perfect to walk around during the day.

2. Shorts from Gina tricot – They are soo comfortable! Sometimes jeans shorts get a bit uncomfortable, so I wanted something to subistitute that. Plus the print is similar to the one used in the Copacabana beach sidewalk *.*.

3. Bikini from H&M – A bikini is a MUST have if you go to Rio. I didnt have any! Let´s face it, there is no place to use bikini in Finland. Maybe in the sauna but the tradition is to go naked!! Yeppp, Finns have no problem to be all naked, I had a bit of a culture shock ahha. No, in Brazil we do not go naked to the beach :D, actually womans don´t even do the “topless” thing.

4 Shirt from H&M – Always good to have a simple white shirt so you can play with the accessories. This one is actually a cropped top.

I hope I can show little bit of Brazil to you girls when I am there! What about more Rio de Janeiro street style? If you are curious about something in Rio let me know! I want to post as much as possible when I am there! 🙂

Eurotrip – Barcelona

Our first full day was amazing in this beautiful full of life city!

To start off:  our hotel room has the best view we could have ever expected! It’s straight to Barcelona’s main cathedral *.*! It’s also super near to the shopping area hehe. We were also blessed with the weather +17C during the day yayyyy, almost like summer for a person that lives in Finland. At a few moments I felt so warm that I had to take my jacket off and walk only with t-shirt, showing my ghost looking sexy arms ahahha.

The name of the square our hotel is located is Avinguda de la Catedral, we went to eat breakfast outside the hotel because in the hotel is sooooo expensive 18 euros per person! As if I would eat 18 euros worth of food in the morning. So, I went to the easy go Starbucks and took 2 coffees. First I got my all time favourite Caramel Frapuccino with lactose free milk yammy. After I drank that I was feeling SOOO COLD, I had to take a warm cappucino to make me feel normal again (little cafeine overdose? yess, but Im in Barcelona I need energy anyway).

Breakfast done, we went to walk towards the port, it was only like 15 minutes by foot and it is absolutely beautiful! Sun was shining, there were many people skate boarding, lot of restaurants, lot of OMG big yachts, there were churros stands, sangria bars, live music and performances on the side walk.

To enjoy all buzz around  we decided to sit for a bit and have a sangria jar( 10 euros – 1 litre) and some churros (they are amazingg, they come in a bag with more then 7 churros ( I even forgot to count, I just started eating straight away) you can also have it with hot chocolate dip.

After relaxing we had a long walk by the beach, there was no one inside the water but the sand and the sidewalk were quite full. It was amazing to smell the sea again after a long time.We started to walk back towards the shopping mall located in the port, by then the sun was going away and the sun set took place. It was a magical day <3.  If one day you have the opportunity to travel, Barcelona should be in your top 10 list!
