Pablo Blaqk Campaign & Giveaway

Pablo Blaqk Kickstarter Campaign

Pablo Blaqk is a talented Cuban/American artist and he's just launched a crowdfunding kickstarter campaign to help him record a new album. There are endless packages to choose from on his campaign page so you never leave empty handed. He's giving away some amazing stuff. And not only that, Pablo is giving away unlimited FREE copies of his 2011 album Sons & Daughters throughout the entire campaign.

I'm all for supporting creative people, and for someone who is giving away so much I believe in giving back. You can check out his campaign page HERE, perhaps there is a package that speaks to you, or you can go there to download your copy of Sons & Daughters.

If you download the album and enjoy it please try to give back to the artist by donating to Pablo's Campaign. You can donate as little as $1, and if your donation starts from $5 or more Pablo starts throwing in even more goodies.

Watch the video below (which I stole from the kickstarter page) to hear Pablo himself talk about the project. 


Visit Pablo Blaqk's kickstarter page HERE to find out more, donate, or download your free copy of Pablo's 2011 album Sons & Daughters.

An Amazing Day In Barcelona

DSC_8709

For our first weekend in Barcelona my mum came out to see the city with us. Orlaith and I have been here almost every year since she was born so we've done all the sights but I have no problem whatsoever seeing them again. And again. And again.

On Saturday we started at Hospital de la Santa Creu i Sant Pau and walked down Avenguda de Gaudi to la Sagrada Familia, which is one of the most famous and fantastic sights in Barcelona, and was designed by the equally amazing Antonio Gaudi.

After our sight seeing we headed to the highly recommended La Paradeta seafood restaurant down one of the streets next to la Sagrada Familia. When I say restaurant I use the term very loosely, it's more like a seafood canteen. But don't let that put you off, the food is fantastic and unbeatably fresh.

You choose what you want from a stall at the front of the restaurant, almost like a market stall, and choose how you'd like it cooked. Then you take your table number, order your drinks and wait until your food is ready and collect it from a window. There's no table service and you take your plates to a counter when you've finished, but the food is amazing and I would recommend it to anyone.

After lunch I headed to the airport with a very full tummy to meet my brother who had just flown in. Now it's time for a few days of full blown family fun. I can't wait!

Hello Barcelona

Well here we are in Barcelona. The city I've wanted to live in for a long time, but I think I'm changing my mind now. My mind is a crazy thing. I still love this place and we are staying in an apartment one minute from the beach so, it's good and I'm feeling happy to be here enjoying every minute in this beautiful city.

I also want to touch on something that's on my heart right now. How life is short. How life is precious. How we don't know what tomorrow holds or how long we have left in this world. And to enjoy every minute, and to spend our time doing things we love and with people who we love. And to hold your babies and your loved ones close. Hearing about the death of a young person always makes me think about what's important in life. 

I hope you're having a wonderful day and making each moment count x
