Travel Blog • Barcelona

Hello all! Recently I went on a school trip to the beautiful city of Barcelona. Above are some picture that really show my time there. The first day we took a long, and by long I mean three hours, through the most well known parts of the city. What we saw was very artistic. We saw a lot of Gaudi architecture, as seen in the first few pictures. A lot of musical acts were on the streets which really made our trip musical. We were lucky enough to visit the Sagrada De Familia which is very well known Roman Catholic church, that is still being built after many many years. The outside is unfinished so there are lots of builders and cranes everywhere, but the inside is spectacular. The attention to detail is staggering! After, we went and made dinner at a Spanish restaurant. You can see above the big bowl with what was a very delicious meal. One of the other days we went to the Gaudi museum a little outside of the city. We walked around for a few hours just looking at the art work that he had produced in his life. The art is very detailed and magical. The last day we were there we had free time, so a group of friends and I decided to relax near the harbor. I have to say that might have been one of my favorite parts, because the weather was beautiful. Hope you are all well and see you next time! Lots of Love xoxo

How I Style • Dip Hem Maxi Skirt

Hello me lovelies! My latest monicaaliceeShow video is a "How I Style" video. This video in particular is a how I style a maxi skirt. The skirt that I am styling is a dip hem styled maxi skirt, as the front of it is a vast amount shorter that the back half, as seen on the picture below. The reason the quality of the photos are terrible is because they are screen shots from the video and not photos I have taken! The skirt is from River Island and cost around £25 from what I remember. It was purchased sometime at the end of May, so if they have the same product I do not know. Similar skirts will be there I am sure, as dip hem a trending style at the moment! Under each look I have stated where the clothes come from. The video at the very bottom explains; how and why I styled them together. Enjoy!

The Healthy Way To Go

Hello everyone! One of my new year resolutions was to stay healthy, and what a better way than making a yummy scrummy yet healthy lunch. A lot of people have said making a fruit salad involves a lot of effort, merely because you have to cut up all these different types of fruits. If you want to make a fruit salad and skip the hassle of doing this, an easy top is to pick out fruits that only needs a little wash. In this case I have selected different types of berries. However, I do find berries rather sour so i decided to put a juicy sweet fruit to vary the taste. 

My healthy lunch consisted of
♥ Blueberries
♥ Cherries 
♥ Strawberries
♥ Watermelon

It is easy. It is quick. It is healthy. I try to make my self a fruit salad everyday or whenever  we have a lot of fruit in the house! I hope you are all doing well and lots of love xoxo

What sort of healthy dishes do you find easy to make?

Te Amo Tapas

Hello all! I went out for dinner, with my mum, to a beautiful tapas restaurant in the center of the city. I have always loved Spanish food, especially tapas. The menu was full of delicious dishes, but we settled on only a few. Even though they are very small, they are very filling!  Meatballs, dates with bacon, pears and blue cheese, and fondue. For afters we got a mango and strawberry and yoghurt, a creme raisin pudding, and a chocolate brownie. Yum yum! Here are some photos that I took at the meal, which I hope you enjoy! See you soon and lots of love xoxo

Have you been out for a delicious meal recently?
