Meet Barcelona Blogger Vanessa Troset:

Over the holidays I vacationed with my family to Spain and Portugal. We visited quite a few cities: Madrid, Granada, Cordoba, Seville, Lisbon and Barcelona to name a few. Barcelona was our last stop before we journeyed home to South Africa and while I was there I was lucky enough to meet Barcelona based fashion blogger, 'Vanessa Troset.'
Vanessa and I decided to do a mini fashion shoot on the streets of Barcelona. For the shoot I wore a designer coat by Andy Huang, LISOF School of Fashion Graduate. He is an Asian South African and so he has mentioned that his designs have always been influenced by both western and eastern cultures. For this particular outfit from his 2015 range he focused on infusing both cultures into one. The western elements he used for instance were the collar, lapel and suiting fabric mixed with the eastern traditional kimono silhouette and eastern influenced embroidery. I fell in love with Andy's design the moment I saw it and I'm sure you will as well!
Vanessa is one of the nicest people I've met during my short career in blogging and she is beautiful too. We walked along the streets of Barcelona looking for places to shoot, while chatting as though we were long lost friends.
Vanessa is originally from Venezuela, she is now living in Barcelona where she runs the social media for a cosmetics brand. You can follow her on Instagram with the user name @vanessa_troset to see just what she gets up to in Barcelona. Every time she posts a picture it makes me miss Spain, with the old buildings, beautiful architecture and cobble stone roads.
I really enjoyed adventuring around Europe but at the same time I'm happy to be home, back to blogging and reality. A very happy new year to all my followers, here's to a great year ahead for all of us!

    Dat zet mij ook wel aan het denken, moet ik zeggen. Maar ik ben in ieder geval heel blij om te horen dat
    het goed met je gaat.
