By car or by train just a twenty minute hop south of Barcelona, and like all gay places BEAUTIFUL!

Renewing spa in Sarriá by Valmont

•••
It was Angela, the skin guru (that treats the jet set ¨Barcelonese¨) who, a few years ago, introduced me to the Swiss cosmetic label Valmont. ¨Renewing Pack¨ by Valmont, a fabulous mask that appears always in her prescription lists. I use to buy it in Regia Perfumerias. Over the past decade I must have bought at least 20 pots, at 150 euros average, th[...]

Sweet treat with the Feet

Ever tried an Ashiatsu Barefoot massage? It's amazing how two feet, two bars and the body weight of an experienced practitioner can feel like the deepest, most luxurious back massage on the Planet. “Ashi” in Japanese means “foot” and “Atsu” means “pressure”, so together they translate into “foot pressure”.

Bikram Yoga Opens in Barcelona Sarria

•••
Just like India - the country, Ballerinas - the shoes and Marmite - the spread, you'll either have a love or a hate affair with Bikram - the yoga. Not everyone can stand the heat, and hot it gets. Basically Bikram Yoga is a series (always the same) of yoga positions in a very hot room (40ºC). I've been doing it for over 15 years and I ♥ it. You lo[...]

Pink Peony Manicure Barcelona

Loved the experience at Pink Peony Manicure in Barcelona on Passeig de Gracia. A bunch of mums from Oak House School organised meeting there as the pre-mum's night out venue. As we all got our nails done, the one big room filled with cheers and laughter, and this is where I spotted the first pair of ASH boots. Most nail colours chosen by the girls were in[...]
