Happy Monday, Happy Lunar New Year and FELIZ CARNAVAL! This past weekend some great, glittery friends and I travelled to Sitges to witness Carnaval in all its glory. I've been to Cádiz for Carnaval whilst on ERASMUS and throughly enjoyed it (you can read all about that here). Since last time I wrote a list of all the reasons why Cádiz was great, I thought I would do the same for Sitges. Ahem:

* G L I T T E R  E V E R Y W H E R E
* fabulous drag queens (see B&W pic with one of my favs)
* singing Queen whilst walking through the metro station
* double decker TRAINS
* baby dog
* Samba bands 
* co-ordinating costumes (especially the ones with families and cute babies)
* Oompa Loompas from Co.Cork 
* dancing/jogging/playing badminton with no ball on the beach
* burgers and crepes 
* being an elf 

On Sunday, I was somehow alive and went out to brunch at The Benedict with Niamh, Eve and Maeve (not all my friend's names rhyme). We went for a wander after to see how Barcelona did Carnaval. It was a lot more family orientated and much less of a party but we didn't mind as work had to be attended the next day. The last two pictures are from the party in El Born, one of my favourite parts of the city.

Hope you all have a lovely week!
