Following on from my post about our hotel and eating out here is my Barcelona shopping haul!
So what’s the shopping like…. it’s amazing!
Spain is home to my favorite brand..Zara. Zara own Massimo Dutti, Pull and Bear, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home, and Uterqüe. Most of these are not in England although some have stores in London.
I picked up this swimming costume from Oysho which has a cut out back and detachable straps. I love this and have been looking for a nice costume for ages so was thrilled with my purchase!
As far as I know there’s only one in England and that’s located in London. The flip flops are from Zara Home and I had to buy them as they were really comfortable when I tried them on (plus I love gold). I did get a few other homeware bits but they are for presents so I can’t take photos I’m afraid. I will say my love for Zara and its sister brands is confirmed once again.
I also popped into Pull & Bear and picked up some lounge wear for my other half as again the only stores in England are in London. You can order online however but I like to see what I’m buying. I also blitzed some other clothes stores of course but there’s only so many photos you all want to see…
Moving onto the store all of us UK makeup lovers lust over..Sephora!
I actually went to three different Sephora’s while in Barcelona shopping whilst here just to make sure I didn’t miss anything! Sephora is basically a department store and similar to Boots but bigger and has a wider range of brands focusing on skincare and makeup.
The first brand I saw was Tony Moly which isn’t the easiest to get over here, this is only a third of the section! We can buy online at places like Cult Beauty and a few other retailers buts it’s not the same as a shop is it?
If you didn’t know already then I’ll tell you- Sephora’s own brand makeup is really good. I was restrained but my mum picked up three lipsticks and a few others bits. You know what they say like mother like daughter..
Here’s some close ups..
What do you think? Is there anything you wish we could get here in the UK but don’t?
