Mango Summer

mangosummer8

Hola from sunny Barcelona! I arrived two days ago and it’s been an incredible experience thus far. I flew in to hangout with my lovely friends over at Mango for their 3-Day #MangoSummer experience where they invited 5 bloggers ( all my friends!: Nicole, Zanita, Gala and Sabrina) to enjoy Barcelona, experience summer, check out their newest collection and play dress up, attend a cool pool party they threw, go paddle board surfing, have fancy dinners, take sushi cooking lessons, get manicures by OPI and more! I mean, they really outdid themselves from last year (when I went to Ibiza with them!)

The best surprise though was that each one of us was going to be able to bring along one of our readers! We held a contest on our instagram and all they had to do was submit an email on why they wanted to go barcelona with me, it was that easy. We got tons of emails so it was hard to pick one but we each narrowed it down to a couple each and finally picked one for each of us to join us on this fun 3-day summer experience with Mango!

I picked Adriana Paczynski from Australia but is currently residing in London for Uni. She was the most sweetest girl; we instantly clicked the moment I met and hugged her. We got to know each other as we talked for hours… and it felt as if though we were just picking up right were we left off even though I had just met her. She was funny, sweet, caring, down-to-earth, pretty and had so much energy! I’m definitely going to miss her but we promised we would stay in touch!

Thank you to everyone that entered; your e-mails were truly touching and I found myself getting teary eyed quite a lot! I wish I could I brought you all along, thank you for the sweet words.

Anyway, excited to be in this beautiful city again! Enjoy day 1 of my stay!mangosummer11

    It looks like Spain treats you all well. I love Mango and have wuite a few items from them, as they fit the style that I like. Lately, though, i have been come more aware of the ethics of producing clothing, particularly after the gruesome accidents happening in factories. i have heard that Mango is one of the store that can not really show for much work on more sustainable and ethical clothing. I would love it if you had more info on that, or if you all as Mango supporters, would raise the question:-)
