Brining back the infamous hashtag #BARRRCA2014 because it really was a trip for the books ! Rewind 3 years ago September 2014,  a bottle of wine an 8 hour flight mind you senza TV’s and four of my best friends it was an interesting flight to say the least.

Touch down and welcome to beautiful Barcelona ! First things first is there any wifi because these days its sad to say but we are dependent on technology and being connected at all times.

Browse below and checkout some snaps from one of my favorite trips!

Parc Güell


Theses are just a few snaps but there’s so much to see in this beautiful city, I would definitely recommend making it one of your longer trips. Maybe a 5,6 day trip or longer to really enjoy, site see and live like the natives. Living like the natives require cafe con leche, cured meats a siesta in the afternoon and super duper late dinner. Honestly I was in heaven whats better then amazing coffee, cured meat ( i wasn’t a VEGGIE at the time) and having a mid afternoon siesta. All this while being surround by such beautiful art and architecture. Barcelona is truly a beautiful city and hope to be back one day soon !

Attention North Shore gals if you haven’t heard of Blush boutique in Locust Valley, NY you need to check them out. You can keep up with Blush via instagram and online here . It’s recently been taken over under new ownership and this new boss babe has a great eye for everything chic & unique. With a curated assortment of accessories, jewelry, home accessories & skincare products you can confidently walk into Blush and feel like these products were hand picked for you.

While browsing I came across the most perfect pastel colored display of Mario Badescu products. Ive heard such a great things about this brand and decided it was time to give it a try. I’m always looking for new skincare products  { A. I couldn’t resist MB’s great packaging I’m a sucker for that stuff and B.  they are known for using natural ingredients another thing I’m a sucker for all things natural, at least for the most part.



Currently my daily skin care regimen consist of the below MB products, I have to say that with the short period time I’ve been using his products I can definitely see a difference.


My morning routine                                                                                                                        

Face wash –  Seaweed Cleansing Soap  ” fresh, creamy face wash.”  Has left my face feeling smooth, refreshed and brighter .

Moisturizer – Oil Free Moisturizer ” Lightweight. Oil-Free”

My nightly routine                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          

Exfoliator  – Botanical Exfoliating Scrub ” Invigorates and refreshes. Delivers gentle exfoliation”  Use 2, 3 times a week to help radiate and clear complexion.

Mask – Super Collagen Mask ” Classic, Collagen enriched mask” Helps plump and smooth out lines, for youthful looking complexion. Since I’ve been using I’ve noticed a more youthful glow. Use 2,3 times a week.

Night Cream  – Seaweed Night Cream ” Plumps, smooths and softens skin”  Lights out night cream on because this girl needs to look “forever young”  and I really have to say I’ve seen a slight difference !

My overall opinion on MB products is YAS, YAS, YAS – can’t wait to keep building my collection! Any questions check out the MB’s website they have so much great info on all their products and if your in the North Shore area checkout Blush Boutique for your MB fix or for some great merch!
