The point is…. I didn’t feel like I was tempted to buy lots of stuff, and frankly I thought I’d spend a small fortune. So anyway, was pretty happy we didn’t drain our bank account or anything in France.
But in Barcelona… oh my! I could’ve easily bought just about everything in sight. Most of all, the CLOTHES. For some reason, the fashion, styles and fit really suited me… exactly what I like, and they had my size too. I loved it. Just about every little cheap chain store, every expensive boutique, I adored. If I was uber rich and not pregnant, I probably would’ve tried to buy entire stores worth of merchandise 😉
Luckily, I am pregnant, and I also have this liiiiiittle weird idiosyncrasy where if I am faced with TOO many things I want to buy, I end up buying… NOTHING. I know, go figure. I just find that when I am exposed to too many nice things I want, something in me shuts down – my brain tells me “Erm, you want everything and you can’t decide on just 1 thing to buy. You don’t want to waste money buying everything. So step away slowly.”
So yes, I ended up coming away with not a huge loads of clothes, which I was happy with… and it even surprised Chris, heh. He kept saying “You sure you don’t want to see more? You’re not gonna buy that?” etc. I was happy. I saved money!
This shop was so cute, had tons of Hello Kitty, Disney, etc etc clothing
Two little pieces I bought
Big-ish Mango tops that I can wear when I’m bigger…
A shopping-time snack – yummy waffle *smothered* in Nutella :)~
In one of the (many) little shops of the Barri Gòtic area
An old school coffee roasting machine that they also roast nuts in, we bought a bunch!
OKAY there is actually a really REALLY big purchase I made in Barcelona (though if you watched the video below you’ll hear Chris mention it!)………. but I will save that for the very end since it deserves it’s own special post 😛
