Tomorrow is oficially the first day of May which also means it’s Mother’s Day in Spain! YAY! Follow me on Snapchat (HAYATETROV) and Instagram tomorrow, so you can see how I spend the day with Shirel, for a fun day (my iPhone tells me it’s gonna be warm and sunny). But unfortunately today felt nothing like spring, it was rainy and cold, which made me wanna crawl into my bed and browse around Net-A-Porter to see what’s new, and share with you my favorite picks! I fell in love with these two Gucci Bags one pink and one red, these Stella McCartney sunnies, Sophia Webster heeled sandals that come in 3 different colors (nude, metallic, hot pink), and a Michael Kors white knotted top (a must in your closet this spring/summer). I hope you like my picks, and there will be more coming this week!

Today is the final day of Barcelona Bridal Week, those of you who follow me on Instagram and Snapchat have seen the shows I attended, the beautiful gowns, the dreamy moments, and have felt the need to get married or re-married in my case! Here are a few pictures from the Galia Lahav backstage moments, it was such an increíble experience for me to attend their show, having a known Israeli name such as Galia Lahav show in Barcelona was just so close to my hear! I loved everything about this collection, the plunging necklines, the gorgeous beading the romantic braids and the fresh faces, all of it was breath taking. I will be sharing more…
It had been almost 7 years since I had visited Israel, since my engagement with Jeff which was back in 2010 I was exclusively visiting him in the US, or waiting for him to come to Barcelona, and then I moved to the US and we were traveling around there, or back to Barcelona once a year to spend time with my family. So as you can imagine this trip was extra special is so many ways, not having been for so many years, not seeing my extended family since my wedding and some of them way longer (keep in mind both my parents have no joke over 50 cousins, and they all have kids, so picture the scenario), this was also Jeff’s first time and Shirel’s too of course, we had two family weddings to attend plus all the dinner parties that come with the celebrations, we went with all the family (my parents, my brothers and their familias), three cities to see, we stayed in Tel Aviv and visited Ashdod (where I am from) and Jerusalem.
All I can say is WHAT A TRIP! There are no words to describe the amazing feeling of going back to your roots and showing your spouse where you come from, and the deeper connection that is created between the two of us cannot be described. Israel is such a vibrant country, the energy around it is so amazing, and especially in Tel Aviv there is a contagious energy, art, culture, beauty, roughness, softness, poetry in every street and every corner, here is a little bit of our trip told through my iPhone photography! I will be posting more from this trip and giving you tips on what to see and where to go. I hope you enjoy it and to those who follow me on Instagram, you probably recognize these photos and those who followed me on SNAPCHAT @GoodGoodGorgeous got to see the whole trip, so please keep following me or start following because there are more destinations coming up for now Im in Barcelona waiting for Bridal Week which starts next week!
Hola lovelies, I apologize for not posting over a month, but I have been busy with Shirel (babygirl) being sick most of the time due to daycare, with work projects ( I am involved in interior design and branding of a new concept restaurant/bar, soon I will be sharing that as well on the blog). Jeff (my hubby) has arrived to Barcelona as well, so we are busy as a family, enjoying every spare moment together, which is why I have been really bad about posting on the blog but those of you who follow me on Instagram are up to date with everything I do from looks, to Barcelona spots, interior design, and in a week I will be traveling to Tel Aviv so stay tuned for that! I have also taken the big leap and am on SNAPCHAT you can find me as HAYATETROV, and you can follow me daily in Barcelona, and soon in Tel Aviv! Which brings me to this post and more that will follow up regarding Wedding Guest Looks, we are going to Tel Aviv for wedding parties (and many other parties that follow up the weddings)! Those of you that are feeling the wedding season coming upon you, I get it, it is a lot to think about, like what kind of wedding, the dress code, the “I wish I could wear white because all the spring summer dresses” I love are white kinda dilema, trust me I know! Which is why I wanted to share with all of you The 8th Sign, I found their designs while browsing online and searching for dresses. I instantly fell in love with their designs, the details on the dresses, and this particular dress I am wearing the green is so beautiful, it is so feminine, chic and bold, combinations that I personally adore. I haven’t been to wedding in a while, specifically since last July where I was still struggling a lot with my pregnancy weight and didn’t know what would look good on me or not, well guess what I still have 5 kilos ( almost 10 pounds) that win’t leave me alone, and I still am figuring out what cuts and materials go with my new more curvy self. The 8th Sign were kind to send me a few dresses to play dress up with and share with all of you, and the moment I tried them on they fit to perfection, you can also find their designs on Asos.com! I hope you love this green dress as much as I do, and please stay tuned for my next look coming this week, until then besos!
Eixample is the neighbourhood that personally to me screams out Barcelona in the most charming way, and of course it is where Paseo de Gracia is, and a few of Gaudi’s most marvellous pieces of art. It is a mixture of old and new Barcelona, transportan you to it’s origins with Markets, neighbourhood bars, stores, and needless to say it’s amazing architecture. Yet on the other hand you can find modern boutiques with up and coming designers, new restaurants with the most intricate interior designs, and spaces such as my new favourite chill out spot Wer-Haus. A space with a men’s shop, a coffee shop, and a little art gallery, all designed to minimalist perfection. I know I keep finding new places where I say that their coffee is amazing, but honestly the coffee here is fantastic, and I happen to have friends who are as passionate about coffee as much as I am so that helps when they tell me where to go! For this occasion as you can see I decided to dress up (with Louboutin’s for a business meeting, and then I dressed it down with white kickz for Wer-Haus chill out) in a little Spring look by Katarina Grey my favorite Barcelona designer, she is so talented and sweet which makes for the perfect combination. She is from Barcelona, but studied at Parsons, and I got to attend her first NYFW show a few years ago, and all I can say is I was in awe back then and I am even more in awe right now! When you enter her world you will never want to leave, it is filled with dramas, beauty and power, and that is all I feel when I wear her magical piece, please check her out and stay tuned as I will be sharing more of her collection, especially for wedding style because wedding season is just around the corner!
