As of late… snapshots from February

Vall de Nuria - The cat, you and us

We are already on the second week of March and haven’t yet shared our snapshots from last month! We like this series because it allow us to show our other adventures, those daily bits that are never featured in their own blog post and lots of them not even Instagramed.

This February was quite on the stay home club side, still we managed to have a getaway to the snow, visit Ikea and get a little bit (too) crazy chasing their Brakig limited collection (yes, we got them here on February while it was first released last spring 2014, not fair?), we paid many visits to what has become my favorite retreat bubble: the japanese coffe shop Usagui (having the best of times with our cousins Eugeni and Elena), trying to watch the Oscars and winning a Sukiyaki dinner with our ballots.

How was your February? Do you have plans for March? I’m looking forward to welcome the warmer weather and plan more walks to discover new places in Barcelona. Oh! and congrats to all women around for yesterday’s IWD, no need to say this but we rulz (and this list of celebrities, being so dang right, proves it)!

Blue and pink - The cat, you and us

On our way to home, we decided to skip the subway and stop to take a picture because the buildings were lovely.

Usagui - The cat, you and us

This is Usagui’s menu, the little drawings are so kawaii! and the rabbit-shaped dish is the one they bring for the utensils. How couldn’t I fall in love with this place?

Matcha addiction! We ate the most delicious matcha cake roll and matcha lattes

Ikea florist - The cat, you and us

Hahaha my apologies to Dani but had to include this! It was taken in the garden area of Ikea, I’m not sure if Dani would make a good florist and if the gardener hat suits him.

Train to Vall de Nuria - The cat, you and us

For our snow getway we took a 3 hour train ride.

We have lately discovered a few new (and neat!) places to eat, this one here is specialized in bread (tomato & bread is a typical Catalan thing) and cheese plates.

Talking about new places, our friends from Nagataya Kyoto recommended us this Udon place called Yoi Yoi Gion Kyoto, which was delish!

Oscars ballots - The cat, you and us

Our Oscars ballots, just to prove I was a fair winner ;) Mine is the one starting with Best Picture: Birdman

    Oh Usagui looks so cute – so much matcha awesome-ness! I had to google this ikea collection, so pretty, love the sweet colours and patterns. Damaris your outfit is killing it, pink shirt, black tights, skirt, cute jacket, cool shoes – but maybe I shouldn’t forget Dani’s hat here either :p I’m not sure where my February went but I know I’ve been a bad blogger, I better start rectifying that!
