Cruisin’ the Mediterranean | Barcelona, Spain



Fireworks by the Palau Nacional, to welcome in the new year

And finally, the last destination of my cruise! It’s been a year since I took this trip, but I’m finally closing out this series of posts! Lesson learned, next time I should post about my trip as soon as possible after I come back from it, so as not to lose the momentum of writing about it… And take more pictures!

Keep reading to see what I got! I also included a few tips for shopping on Glossier’s site 🙂

As it is nearing the end of the year, I thought that a roundup of my beauty favorites of the year was in order. There are a couple of products that I’ve only started using in the last couple of months, but I already know that they will be lasting favorites, so they are in this list as well!
