As I write this post, it has been exactly a month and a week since the birth of our little angel Liel. She has brought so much light and love into our home and hearts, that I truly sound corny but it is absolutely the utter truth. It seems like she has been here forever, like I was pregnant a life time ago, and so much has happened within this past month, but I also think the sleepless nights contribute to my feelings of time expanded, since I am awake during both day and night:) Before Liel’s birth we had a staycation planned at the Fairmont Rey Juan Carlos, they invited to experience a weekend in their fabulous hotel, and to pamper me before the baby arrived. But God’s plan was different, and I went into labor the Tuesday night before that weekend, but I wasn’t about to give up on a weekend of fun for our family and we headed to the hotel two weekends ago and had a fabulous time of course:)I fell in love with the fresh new look of the hotel, those of you who follow me on Instagram and Pinterest are more than aware of my passion for design and especially interior design. I love to always show you guys my favorite spots in the city, and that of course includes hotels! So if you are planning a trip to Barcelona, this Fairmont location is HOT! It has everything from sleek bedrooms, Le Labo goodies, delicious food, pool life with one children’s pool offering fabulous Balinese beds, and a second adult pool! What more can you ask for?
As I am writing this post (two weeks too late), because babygirl Liel has been welcomed to the world:) YES I am officially a mother of two little precious and beautiful girls, and my heart couldn’t be filled with more love than it is right now. But rewind two weeks ago, Treatwell.es and OPI Nail Bar Barcelona decided to celebrate me and babygirl Liel, with a Beauty Baby Shower, filled with sweets, manis, friends and family, I felt loved and spoiled.
For those of you who have experienced pregnancy (and those of you who haven’t) you must know what emocional and sensitive times these are, so when you are surrounded by loved ones, and supportive people it means the world. Which is one of the reasons this pregnancy was so much easier, as well as the fact that I had a toddler to care for, and well my husband travels back and forth from Barcelona to DC for work, so I had zero down time as you can imagine. Which is why when one of my favorite Beauty apps like Treatwell decides to celebrate my baby and me, at O.P.I Nail Bar one of my favorite nail salons in Barcelona, I rejoyce and say YES PLEASE! We had such a fantastic time with the delicious sweets made by the talented Frosting Barcelona, and enjoyed the pampering as you can imagine. I hope you enjoy the photos, and stay tuned for more posts this week, especially the one where I introduce Liel! PS: Follow me on Instagram this weekend so you can view my staycation at the Fairmont Hotel in Barcelona:)
