Barcelona mini-tour

Would you like to enjoy a mini-tour round Barcelona in four minutes? This is the lasting of this time-lapse piece named “Summer Barcelona” directed by Pau García Laita, a young and talented (only 22!) freelance filmmaker from our city. It’s a tilt-shift video of summer life of Barcelona, a photography technique that simulates miniature scenes.

We love the warmth and colours in it, it reminds us of the summer now it has gone! XO

summer in Spain

According to the news (wich I try not to read or watch too much these days for my own sake) almost 40% of spanish people will not be able to take holidays this year due to economical crisis.

So, good news for you, if you plan to visit our country this summer, hopefully you will find in our crowded beaches in the past, room enough to display your towel and reach the water without jumping over someone else!

We are awaiting your visit. Love. XO


Summer is about to come… at least, where we live, sun is quite warm right now, so it’s time to start looking for our swimsuits and beach towels.
Kids love playing in water. The beach is the place to let them splash around and have fun.
I’ve found a vintage wooden puzzle of children having fun in the water + a painting of the sea + a japanese paper ball + an old postcard from the Costa Brava and some blue sea stones.

Everything together makes a mediterranean summer.

mini fruit cakes

I can’t wait for summer to come this year, so I suggested my friend (a professional baker) from
tea time alicia  to bake this mini fruit cakes to make us dream of sunny days and hot weather.
They look and taste wonderful, I promise to publish the recipe in a next post!
