Best street fashion outfits by Admin

When you are a fashion freak or you just want to look good and trendy, it’s good to look for inspirations in many different places. Nowadays, the most popular source is undoubtedly the Internet. Tumblr or Pinterest are only a few of the sites where to find the perfect outfit examples. There are plenty of fashion related profiles on Facebook or Instagram and hashtags like #fashion or #ootd that have been tagged over a few million times.  YouTube is also a platform where you will find thousands of tips how to look up to the date and as fashionable as possible.

In this overload of information you can easily get lost or tired and finally, you won’t know what to wear at all.  So we have a proposition for you. Take a deep breath and go for a walk around your city, because we can’t forget that still, one of the best places to find inspirations are streets of a metropolis. Barcelona can be defined as a city which is blooming with diversity, multiculturalism and really good taste in fashion.

Today Capture Models Team decided to explore the capital of Catalonia in order to find some trendy and unique outfits, asking people of their sources of fashion influences.

Elena is 25 years old and she came to Barcelona from Venezuela. Her style is quite modern, yet laid back. You can also spot some vintage influence in her styling. Biggest fashion inspiration? Cindy Crawford and her classy stilizations!

Catalina is 19 years old and comes from Chile. We met her at the beloved skateboarder’s meeting spot near MACBA. She wasn’t really sure what inspires her, but without any doubt we can say that Catalina is really into skater girl scene. Just take a look!

Corenne is 26 years old and on daily basis lives in Switzerland. We met her at the entrance of the vintage shop in Raval district since she immediately grabbed our attention. Oversized white T-shirt is surely the key element of her outfit and it looks simply perfect with her modern, yet throwback-to-90’s Nike sneakers! When she needs some inspirations she always checks them on Instagram.

Engi is also 26 years old and she comes from Switzerland. Her style is natural and breezy. She chose a basic, grey top, loose black trousers and some flip flops. It’s the perfect choice for a summer day in Barcelona.

We hope that this post influence you to look for fashion inspirations not only in fashion related websites or magazines, but also on the streets!

Best vintage shops in Barcelona by Admin

In Barcelona, there are hundreds of ways of spending your time – from visiting the most typical tourist spots, such as La Rambla, Sagrada Familia or other Gaudi’s breathtaking masterpieces to diving into Barcelona’s fashion spree. And that’s what we have done today. As you probably know, Barcelona is famous for the streets filled with exclusive shops like Gucci, Channel, Dolce&Gabbana, etc. However, not that many people know about the flourishing vintage shops and markets. We made a quick tour around the city and visited four amazing vintage shops. We made sure to take some amazing pictures just so you would see what it’s all about!

Soul

The first shop we visited was the vintage store named SOUL, situated at Carrer de Tallers. Crossing its thresholds, we found ourselves in a place that’s magical and a little dark filled not only with ordinary clothes but also with various kinds of disguises. See for yourself!

address: Carrer Tallers 15

Vintage Store Tallers 23

The second one was more casual and is maintained in the style of the past two decades. There, we found some 90’s style clothes like polo T-shirts, mom jeans, outworn Vans or Converse. What surprised us the most, was the large choice of football shirts! For anyone who loves old-school aura and football – we totally recommend it!

address: Carrer de Tallers 23

Polly Maggoo

The greatest choice of accessories ever! Hats, all kinds of jewelry and neckerchiefs. When you enter the shop, you can definitely feel the 70’s vibe – the clothes are totally sublime and selected perfectly to capture the hippie era. Furthermore, the owner is very nice and helpful.

address: Carrer de Riera Baixa 4

Lullaby
Let’s dive into the 50’s! This vintage shop is not only full of amazing clothes from a few decades ago, but has an extraordinary inside design as well. Unfortunately, not all the things are for sale, but still, it’s the great experience to admire the owner’s imagination.

Summer hairstyles by Admin

It is sometimes quite hard to take care of our hair as it can be a long and complicated process to finally be able to style it and take care of it. That is why we wrote an article below on one of the hair routines you can adopt for the summer.

When it is hot, whether you have long hair or short hair, it is always difficult to find hairstyles that will allow you to not to sweat too much and feel comfortable while remaining stylish. In addition, when we are on vacation, sometimes we feel lazy and wish to give our hair a break from our straightener or curler.

Here are three hairstyles easy to try for the holidays, depending on what you are planning to do during the day. It can be for a morning at the beach, an afternoon stroll by the sea and an evening at a restaurant with friends.

Summer hairstyles

Top knot will be your best friend. There is nothing more easy and comfortable than this hairstyle. But you can also enjoy the fact that your hair is wavy from the sea air to do an half-do messy bun, a classic hairstyle that will remain as one of our favourites.

The braids are one of the big trends of this year. It is not possible that you missed on Instagram that it is the hairstyle to adopt this summer.

For an evening out, after the shower, you can go for a little bit more sophisticated hairstyle and try to do a bohemian braided bun. This simple but elegant hairstyle will allow you to be the most beautiful during your evening out.

Summer hairstyles

You can add to your hair any kind of accessories: headbands, headscarves or flowers. Be fancy and dare while you are on vacation.

Why you should visit Barcelona by Admin

Barcelona is a great city to visit with your friends and your family, for a weekend or for holidays. Every single person that comes to Barcelona leaves with sparkles in their eyes and make the promise to come back again as soon as possible.

This cosmopolitan city is vibrant. The atmosphere that reigns there makes you feel like you are at home because people are caring, welcoming and love to celebrate life. Moreover, the environment is breathtaking. Palm trees, sea air and the smell of seafood in the streets; there is everything you need to have an unforgettable stay.

That is why everyone loves Barcelona because it is full of gorgeous places. Whenever you are wandering the streets, you can admire the beauty of the architecture, but also to many well-known places as The Park Guell and the Sagrada Familia. The Catalonian capital has a real history and you have the chance to admire it through buildings like Casa Battlo and museums.

Why you should visit Barcelona

To enjoy the beautifulness of the whole city, you can climb up above Park Montjuic and The Bunker. You will benefit from an incredible view and a rare moment of peace, far from the city’s madness. But if you think you are not only here to relax and want to go out, Barcelona is also the perfect place. There are many restaurants, bars and clubs to enjoy.

For the foodie, Catalan food is very famous all around the world. Tapas, paella, findeua, seafood, local cerveza… you can eat and drink whatever you want as the streets are crowded with traditional restaurants. You will never get bored while staying in this great city. There are so many places and things to experience in this multicultural city.

Barcelona is the place to be, that is why it is one of the most visited city. When walking in Las Ramblas you can see how much it is popular by seeing the number of tourists every day. Once you have considered you have visited enough areas in the city centre, you can go to Casteldefells, for its less crowded beaches, as well as along the coast like Costa Dorada and Costa Brava.

Why you should visit Barcelona

We wonder if it is possible not to love Barcelona, a charming city with a real story behind and an atmosphere that will make you feel like you are on holidays.

Summer hair care routine by Admin

Hair is mistreated during summer because of the sun, sea water and chlorinated swimming pool water. That is why you need to protect them as much as you can, with scarves, caps and hats. Not only it will allow you to have a trendy look at the beach, but it will also be really useful to protect your hair from the UV rays. You need to remember that the sun does the same damages to your skin as it does to your hair.

Different tips exist in order for you to take care of your hair all year round, but especially during the summer. You really need to build up a routine that will prevent your hair from being dry and brittle.

Use sun proof protection shampoo. As we said it, it is like your skin, so don’t hesitate to apply that kind of products regularly. If you can avoid to wet your hair into the sea or the pool, do it, same for washing them. The more you will wash your hair, the more it will be greasy. But when you are taking a shower, apply a good conditioner. Most importantly, do nourishing cares. Whether they are home-made or not, they will pigment and reinforce your hair.

Summer hair care routine

Oil treatments will be your dearest friends. Coco, argan, aloe vera, you can mix plenty of ingredients together to do masks. Also, remember that everything is related to your diet. The more you will eat aliments that are rich in nutrients, the more your skin and hair will glow. Avocado, salmon, almonds have omega 3 in it that will allow your hair to feel and look better.

Let your hair dryer and straightener at home. Your hair must take a break from the heat. There are a lot of hairstyles to do that are trendy. Wavy beach hair and braids are one of the easiest and most successful hairstyles to adopt.

We don’t realize all the side effects the environment we are living in has on our body. Be sure that you will use all the possible ingredients to make you feel comfortable in your own body.

Summer hair care routine

Take care of your skin, your hair. Take care of yourself.

What to put in your vanity for the summer by Admin

May has started well with a bank holiday to celebrate the International Workers’ Day. But it’s not because now we are working that we cannot think about our future trip to a dream destination. And because we want to be as organised as we are at the office, we like to plan things in advance. Thus, once our tickets are booked, we only need to think about what do we have to pack.

Girls always bring more than necessary. It is not a cliché. But we also often forget important things. Here, you will find a list of what you should buy to put into your vanity to be prepared to face a hard day on the sand facing the sea with only the sound of waves and seagulls.

A perfect vanity should not be too full. Think practical. Think about what you will need at the beach but also afterwards, when visiting and going out at night. We don’t use the same products during holidays than during our daily life. Our beauty routine changes because our habits and the environment we are in are different.

XHat to put in your vanity for the summer

An important product not to forget is sunscreen. It is important to take care of your skin and avoid as much as possible damages. We don’t always realize the power of the sun on our body, that is why it is also important to bring an aftersun lotion that you will have to apply every day after your shower. You can also exfoliate your skin to peel off the dead skin, your tan will stay long after this.

If you go to the beach, you don’t necessarily wear makeup. We all like having makeup-free days, a natural complexion with beach waves hair. But for the people who still want to wear some makeup, look for a waterproof mascara, especially if you go for a swim and don’t want it to smudge under your eyes. Remember that alcohol and sun are not a good combination. If you want to wear perfume, find a selection that is alcohol-free. Otherwise, your skin will be irritated and itchy.

Lip balm is a must, with or without sunproof protection. You can also do lip scrub to take care of this sensitive part of your body that can also take sunburn. Finally, to accessorize your look, bring colourful nail polish, like red and coral. It always looks good with a nice tan on.

Your vanity is now ready to be put into your suitcase. Next step: holidays.

A healthy mind in a healthy body by Admin

Easter came and no one skipped the traditional egg hunt. Children and adults have loved eating chocolate; some might have done more than others. While we enjoyed it way too much in Barcelona with the famous Mona de Pascua without feeling guilty, the sunny days are coming back. So the main question that is ringing in our head is: will my swimsuit still fit me?

To prepare our summer body, there is nothing better than doing outdoors activities, whether it is by yourself or in a team. The undeniable advantage for the people living in Barcelona, or for the lucky visitors, is that no matter the physical activity practised, they will always benefit from an incredible view or incredible sites to visit: a great source of motivation.

Whether you would prefer to run, cycle or hike, you will find plenty of places to go to such as the famous Barceloneta and the Passeig Maritim. There is nothing more pleasant than doing sports while feeling the sea breeze in your hair. However, as it is quite crowded in the summer, do not hesitate to look for paths in the heights of Barcelona. Montjuic is a great area thanks to its many green areas, parks and gardens. You will enjoy the view as much as if you want to go to Carretera de les Aigües. 

A healthy mind in a healthy body

If you want to exercise with other people, there is still that easy option where you can just go to the beach and play volleyball. But for the people who want to try local activities, they should try the Padel tennis, a sport imported from Argentina but well-known here in Catalonia.

Outdoor yoga is also a great outdoor activity to practice in the Parc de la Ciutadella, near the Arc de Triomf with its fountain and its green areas. Again, it can be crowded and as yoga is supposed to help you to relax, do not hesitate to visit any park around you, they will all be as beautiful and some will surely be more peaceful than others. You can also go to the Serra de la Collsorella a natural park full of history.

Doing outdoor activities will allow you to enjoy the city, discover new places and new people that share your passion. With its 5km of coastline, Barcelona has a wide variety of places you will not know if you don’t wander in the streets. But wherever you are in the world, just remind yourself that it’s important to go outside. It is good for your body and your mind.

A healthy mind in a healthy body

That’s also what tourism is: discovering the city without any precise goal.

Beach Day Essentials by Admin

A day on the beach is not only a whole lot of fun but also incredibly good for your body if you act responsibly.
Preparing for a whole day at the beach? Make sure to toss these Beach Day Essentials into your beach bag!

# TOTE BAG

There is a lot of Beach Day Essentials to carry when spending a day on the beach, but there is nothing you cannot fit in a canvas tote bag. You also do not need to worry of it getting ruined if it gets a tad damp or wet. It is the perfect go-to bag for the beach!

# BEACH TOWEL

Never go to the beach without a towel and if you are feeling extra generous, take your massive beach towel and save the few that forgot to bring one. You will be able to fit around 3-4 friends at least to have a great chat by the sea or just listen to music and work on your tan.

# SUNSCREEN

This is quite the no-brainier if you are aware that you are going to be spending all the day on the beach, so always apply AND REAPPLY.  Even though most of us do head to the beach to work on getting that tan, but skimping on the sun protection is not the way to go. You can find sunscreens with appropriate protection and instant bronzers so there is no excuse.

# STYLISH SUNNIES & A HAT

Even if you do apply sunscreen, your face is still going to need that extra protection. The bigger, the better protected, so do not be shy to wear those massive sunglasses and big floppy hat. It is a cute and stylish way of avoiding the bright red nose and cheek bones.

# WATER

Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! 
Tanning and swimming for the day is bound to leave you parched, so make sure to take your water flask along with you to have cool water available whenever you will need some.

# SNACKS

Always take a bunch of snacks to the beach with you. Something like cool mixed fruit, salads, some healthy granola bars and so on. This is ideal if you plan on staying at the beach for longer than 3 hours, to ensure that you will be full and happy on your well-needed beach day.

# A GOOD READ

It is one of the best feelings to unwind with a good read in hand whilst listening to relaxing music at the beach.
Here are 3 good fashion books for this summer.
