Aparthotel Silver Barcelona

Hotel Review

On our trip to Spain we stayed at Aparthotel Silver in Barcelona. We enjoyed our stay at this hotel and highly recommend it to anyone visiting Barcelona! The hotel is at a great location to either take public transit or walk through the city. We walked to Park Güell, Carmel Bunkers, Sagrada Familia, and so many other sites while staying at this location and loved ever second!

Hotel room view! Each room has not only curtains on the windows, but also panels that can be put down as a black out shade over the windows by using a switch on the walls. We loved being able to sleep in and relax without being waken up by the early morning sun. Ahhh bliss!

The hotel has an amazing patio set up outside to hang out in. Covered in greenery and relaxing places to lounge. We used this as the perfect place to eat breakfast and catch some morning sunshine to wake up!

Quiet rooms with a kitchen set up inside the room. While we travel we love to have a kitchen to be able and make our own food for some meals. Usually you are provided a kitchen with a couple of cups and things... But Aparthotel supplies full kitchen supples with rags, dish wear, silverware, and anything else you could need!

On our last day we wanted to go out and explore the city after check out and were able to leave our luggage in these great storage lockers. This is something I haven't seen at a hotel before! I felt so much safer by leaving my belongings locked away in a cupboard instead of leaving them behind a desk. This one added major points to how much I loved this hotel!

Lastly the comfortable lounge on the main level was amazing! Fireplace, drinks, computers and printers, and the friendliest staff! Thank you Aparthotel Silver for the wonderful stay! We will be back!

Our First Christmas Away From Home❤️

+PayPal P2P Holiday Greetings

Thank you PayPal for sponsoring this post. Visit PayPal to give the gift people really want this season: money!

This year is our first Christmas away from our homes, our families, our friends, and our culture. We are so excited to be spending the holidays traveling to places we have never been before, but of course there is a little part of us that will be missing home! With being so far away from our families, it is so hard to send gifts to each other since international shipping is so expensive. So this year we will be having a very unique (and awesome) way to exchange of gifts instead!

Okay, I know what you're thinking... What are we talking about? So here it is, we are talking about money! Isn't that what everyone wants after the age of 12 anyways?😉 PayPal P2P now has the CUTEST holiday greetings that can spice up your gift of money for anyone from your grandma to your boyfriend! This digital holiday greeting is super easy to use and is perfect for a last minute gift.

With PayPal P2P, you can securely send and receive money with family and friends using just a phone number or email address between PayPal accounts. Be it food for Friendsgiving, the taxi to a holiday party, or that group gift for Mom and Dad, there are many reasons to use PayPal P2P payments this holiday season. Holiday gifts are great, but the reality is, many of them are just going to be re-gifted or hidden in the back of a closet. Yet even though we’re all thinking it, it can be a little awkward asking for money as a gift so you can buy that bag you really want. The good news: You are not alone! PayPal’s 2017 Holiday Money Habits study found that money is the most-wanted gift for the second year in a row, and 52% of Americans wish they could ask for cash instead of traditional holiday presents this year.

So, if you’re in need of a last-minute gift or simply just don’t know what to get all of the people on your list, seize the season with PayPal’s free P2P holiday greetings so people can get what they really want this year: MONEY. You can send a PayPal P2P digital greeting by simply logging into your account on PayPal.com, select Send Money, enter the recipient’s contact information, designate the amount, click the gift box, select your favorite greeting, personalize with a message, and send. The funds go right into their PayPal account; if they don’t have an account, they can quickly open one for free.

Merry Christmas to YOU from London! We hope that you will be able to use this easy and secure way of sending money to your loved ones. Happy Holidays!🎉

Best. Vegan. Protein.

Celebrating almost ONE YEAR Vegan and I have been on the hunt for a Vegan Protein that tastes like heaven. Here it is.... Bio Synery Lean and Green Protein. 100% Vegan. 100% Raw. 100% Natural. 100% Delishhhhh.

Many of you might remember a while back a post saying that Gavin and I had just started eating a plant based diet. Becoming Vegan wasn't a hard task for me since I am not a big fan of meat anyways, but eating plant based has exceeded my expectations! Now after almost one year of Vegan eating I have finally found a Vegan Protein that tastes amazing!

If you want to learn more about eating Plant Based or what changed our minds to head down this road, this book is absolutely amazing! The information it supplies is solely what made us want to eat a plant based diet. This books isn't about "why you should be Vegan". It is more about how certain illnesses and diseases can be prevented by what you eat. A great read for people looking to better their life and nutrition! Click the picture for more information!

Emergency Travel Kit

With the holiday's coming up I'm assuming a lot of you will be doing some traveling... just like me! I'm compiling a Travel Emergency Kit of my own so I thought I would share what I am putting in mine. Creating a travel emergency kit is LONG overdue in my life. So I'm glad I've finally decided to get it together. Disclaimer: This post contains feminine products that may be painful to the male eye. Proceed with caution. ? To shop any of these products, click on the picture and it will take you to the source!

 

1. First of all... You need something to put your kit in! I use a little pouch (Its technically a make up bag. But men... Fear not!) that is big enough to hold everything, and small enough to carry with me. It is black, zips, and will survive anything!

 

2. Mini First Aid Kit. Complete with anything you would need if the injury isn't hospital worthy. Band aids, antibiotic ointment, antiseptic wipes, sting relief, and safety pins.

 

3. Portable phone charger. Because we all know we cant stay off our phones long enough to preserve some battery life. Believe me, from personal experience.... You NEED this.

 

4. Okay men shield your eyes! Compact tampons are a must! You never know when that time of the month is going to hit.... Especially when you're traveling. The altitude change, climate change, and stress on your body will often cause an irregular period. So be prepared!

 

5. Travel Sized Aloe Vera if you are traveling to a tropic destination!

 

6. Collapsable travel sized toothbrush! You never know if your toiletries will be lost in transit, or if your flight will be delayed. Whenever we are traveling all day it makes me feel better to brush my teeth and clean up a bit. I can't tell you how many times I've brushed my teeth in an airport!

 

7. Wipes! These coconut wipes are my favorite because I can use them on my hands or my face. They smell so good and are so refreshing while I'm traveling all day or night.

 

Some other things to consider for your Emergency Travel Kit: Extra underwear, hand sanitizer, hair brush, socks, travel sized blanket, extra cash, copies of your important documents

 

All of these products can be found on amazon.com and are very affordable. Click on the picture to shop them!
