I really like this “How to spend a weekend in Barcelona?” slideshow of the New York Times. Check it our if you need some inspiration! (WARNING: For tourists only! :))

Lately i’ve been mad about Mad Men, the US series about Madison Avenue advertising executives set in the ’60s and i spotted the gorgeous sofa/bed that Betty is lying on while at the psychologist…. Well turns out it is a famous piece of furniture called the Barcelona day bed!

My other addiction lately…. Chocolate! Hmm so comforting to buckle up under a blanket and open up one of those Santa chocs!Ā  šŸ™‚

But look at that! Someone crafted the Barcelona day bed entirely out of chocolate!

Created by Leandro Erlich and Guido Mogni it’s a piece of art to die for!

“Walking closer, one realized that the couch was made of chocolate, each pleat, button, and stitch lovingly rendered with a thick coating that looked (and felt) eerily like leather. As the maid brandished serving utensils and sliced into the couch, she revealed the glorious truth: a moist, buttery layer cake with hints of cream, coffee, and liquor buried inside. The pillow was even softer, fashioned from an airy angel food cake spiked with vanilla. Viewers had difficulty deciding whether to stare or eat, but quickly settled on the latter.”

Oh how i wish i could rip that button off with my teeth!

I love all things dodgy and messy and artistic and unique, qualities that are normally not part of the de luxe life. Nevertheless i do like to treat myself and “my significant other” to some luxury every once in a while.

I foundĀ THIS great, chic and inspiring article on Forbes traveller about the supposingly coolest places in Barcelona. Restaurants, bistros, tapas, shopping, chocolate, hotels, museums….

hmmmm as for me, I can’t wait to splurgeĀ in Espai Sucre (an all-dessert incredibly chic restaurant)
