What do you do and why do you do it?

Great question! I'm still figuring it out. I'm into advertising & PR industry and I've been working for two years as freelance with different projects related to music, fashion and trends. I'm sooo curious I'm currently learning about economics and meditation, so let's see where this ends.

You’re broken hearted - what tracks does your heartbreak playlist consist of?

Jorja Smith, ABRA, IAMDDB, SZA, Kali Uchis, Doja Cat and Kelela for healing my soul then Nathy Peluso for the comeback.

What are the best TV shows of all time?

I am Not your Negro, The True Cost and Blackfish changed my life. Grace & Frankie saved it.

Name some spots in Barcelona that are good for a Tinder date.

I'm a detractor of tinder dates

Where do you buy those fabulous clothes of yours?

I don't have a favourite shop or brand since I can go from Nordic simplicity to the most extra outfit. I love mixing classic garments with hood accessories or vice versa, that's 100% me lol, so I have a wide range of places to go depending on what I 'need'. Vintage or second-hand shops are great deals though!

What’s the most expensive restaurant / spa / hotel you’ve ever been to in Barcelona? How much did it cost and what did you get there?

When I was working as restaurant/spa/X reviewer, I took a facial and pedicure @ Bliss Spa in W Hotel. I had my feet on almond milk while I was watching Devil Wears Prada sipping cava and eating a ​brownie. Never forget.

What restaurant in Barcelona looks crap, but the food’s amazing?

Chinese restaurant Chen Ji is the way out when I'm craving for glutamate.

Where can you get the best cocktail in Barcelona? Which one do you like?

Pisco Sour at Big Kokka.

Which snacks can you only get in your country, and which ones do you recommend?

We ain't that exclusive actually.

What’s the one place you think is overrated in Barcelona?

Bunkers del Carmel.

What’s the one place you think is underrated in Barcelona?

Raval neighbourhood, I think they still say it's 'dangerous'.

Tomorrow’s your last day in Barcelona. How do you spend it?

I'm so scared of that day I don't even want to imagine it.

What’s your favorite vacation city in the world and why?

For a mental break, I love spending a weekend in Woodah Hostel at Copenhagen doing nothing but reading, sipping tea and listening to soul music.
