Barcelona | February ’17

I promised a blog post on Barcelona months ago, but here it finally is on my new blog –

Ventures With Loz

Earlier this year I visited Barcelona, also known as the City of Counts, or the City of Gaudi. Having visited briefly once when I was younger, it wasn’t actually one of my first choices for holiday destinations, but I am so glad my best friend and I decided to visit this beautiful city because we did so many things that I wouldn’t have done otherwise. We spent four days here and we both loved every second of it, so I thought I’d share what we got up to.

Day 1 –

First up, our hotel was stunning and is easily one of the best places I have ever stayed abroad. We stayed in H10 Port Vell which we fortunately managed to get a great price for, the staff were so helpful and the hotel as a whole was gorgeous and well situated.


We arrived at our hotel quite early so…

Right, I haven’t been around here for a while (sorry!), but I want that to change.

I have missed my blog, but the past few months I have found it tough to post on here for a number of reasons;

  • Firstly, I’ve been lacking the drive. I feel like all my posts are the same kind of thing, a repeated cycle of favourites and empties and a load of book reviews thrown in.
  • My blog name has really put me off persisting with this blog. I still love the name driftinglexi, but the name is so separate from me that I no longer feel right using it. I need something unspecific, or it needs to have my real name in it.
  • I generally just haven’t had the motivation or energy to post outside of work. I’m hoping that starting anew will help create some motivation and energy though.

A key phrase in that last point is “starting anew” and this brings me to my announcement…

I’ve created a new blog!

I’ve blogged on driftinglexi for approximately two years and I’m so proud of all I’ve done with it, but I feel a fresh start is for the best. I’m not going to make any crazy commitments like I have in the past, for now I’m just going to aim to post weekly, preferably on Sundays. This means new posts and maybe at the start a few older ones from this blog, just so that I can keep a few of my favourites in the same place.

I would absolutely love it if those of you who have enjoyed any of my posts on this blog will join me over on my new one. Expect a lot of the same types of posts on beauty, books and even some more frequent ones relating to travel and if there’s anything more specific you’d love to see, do not hesitate to let me know!

My new blog is called Lip, Lit and Loz A.K.A. Lipstick, Literature and, well, me! This new name covers all the bases I love: beauty, books, and anything else I may want to post about including travel and anything else to do with my life, and this time the title even has my name in it!

Please do join me over on my new blog – hope to see you there!
