080 Barcelona Fashion

While I was in Spain for a Summer Pre-College Program, it also happened to be Barcelona Fashion Week.
Fortunately, I was able to attend one night and it was an incredible experience!
Barcelona is a city filled with fashionable people so it's no surprise that the event was filled with super trendy bloggers, stylists, and fashion enthusiasts. 
Fashion is such a big part of Barcelona and it was amazing to see that at the event.
Since I traveled to Spain with a program, I was only able to be there for a short period of time.
However it was just as exciting to be in the atmosphere and people watch.
It was definitely an experience I'll never forget, and one that I hope to be able to re-live again!  
Food vendors had savory burgers and sweet treats.

Designers displayed articles of clothing from tree-like racks.

"Pop-up" shops sold unique jewelry and leather goods.

I'm Back! {Summer in Spain}

Hola everyone!
Lo siento (Sorry) that I've been MIA for the past three weeks as I did a summer program in Spain and had VERY limited wi-fi access! 
But I'm back and will be posting more regularly now!

Spain was absolutely amazing.  It was my first time traveling to Europe, so I wasn't sure really what to expect. However, the beauty of Spain exceeded my expectations. 
I spent most of my three weeks in Barcelona taking Spanish and photography classes and did weekend trips to Madrid and Girona. 
The people there were so nice, the food was delicious, and the buildings and architecture was exquisite.
I made lifelong friends all while soaking in the culture and improving my Spanish.
The Spanish culture is absolutely amazing and I had such an amazing time in the city.  
It was an experience I'll never forget and I can't wait to return to Barcelona.
