This month we are a little bit early with our Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge and it sure is a fun theme again! In case you missed the previous Club Challenges, you can find them here.
Our theme this time is: Local Decor Shopping! How fun! I mean, who doesn’t like to go shopping! I sure do! And before I start, I must warn you: Photo Overload coming up!
Today I’m gonna show you my favourite two places to go to, here where I live! But before, I have to explain a little bit more about them. So first of, I love shopping and I have lots of stores I like to go to, but these two I’m about to introduce today are so nice, they are local and I go there quite a bit. I love to support the local stores and right where I live, just a little walk from my house away, there is this little, fun, outside shopping center. It is so lively, people are always out and about here and you can sit somewhere on a terrace and have a coffee, or tapas [we actually go quite often to grab a tapa, especially now, when the weather is starting to get hotter].
In this little shopping center, there are lots of small stores, bakeries, a book store, fashion stores, jewlery stores, my favourite hair dresser, restaurants, bars, and so on. In the summer they have fun rides for kids, music and it’s quite the scene! It’s small, but there’s always, something going on and on the weekends it’s lovely to have a drink at night, to just sit under the stars and enjoy! Kids everywhere, people chatting and hanging out and just having a blast! That is where I live, that is all happening in this little “Centro Comercial de Vistahermosa” a few steps from our house. And that is, where one of my favourite little stores is!
Local Decor Shopping: Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge
This is just one part of the shopping center, to give you an idea.
So, back to my favourite store, well, one of them! It’s called “Little London”. You can find their facebook link below, why don’t you give them a like! The owner is the nicest lady and every time I go we chat a bit while I admire her store and her taste of decor! Just lovely!
There’s a little bit of everything to find: she’s got the cutest kids fashion and also women’s and it’s so hard to not grab everything she’s got in there!
Since the beach season is coming up soon, she’s selling all kinds of cute kids swim suits and has them in little bags inside these fun crates!
I love the hanging shelf idea!
This bench is mine! LOL. I’m envisioning it in my front garden!!!
And, don’t blame me, but I had to take something home! I fell right in love with this cute pillow saying “siesta”. Right now it’s on my sofa, sometimes on my chair, but soon it’ll be on my patio sofa, where one can have the best siestas!!!
Now to my second favourite local store here: It is a bit further away from my home, not located in the shopping center because it’s a garden store! The best garden store around in my opinion! Ok, I am not a garden expert and have failed many times planting and trying to grow my own…. so now I only buy “hard to kill plants” like aloe, palm trees, cacti and such. So far so good! Here, you can find any plant you could think of, it’s just amazing to go and have a walk through all the greenery. They do not only have plants though, they also sell hand painted flower pots! Which is what I’m going to show you!
These planters are my favourite, they are just lovely I think! And below, my favourite section of the greenhouse!
And this friends, was this months In’tl Bloggers Club Challenge! I hope you enjoyed the little shopping tour! Believe me, I could have shown you pages full of photos of pretty stores around here, but for now it’s enough I think! Make sure to check out the other ladies’ posts below!
Thank you for being here! Have a lovely week!
