    Have you ever been to Barcelona?

    I have. Once. A long time ago. I have vivid memories of my four days in Barcelona when I was an oh-so-smart and naïve nineteen-year-old experiencing Europe for the first time. And after wearing Tardes by Carner Barcelona, and revisiting those memories, I definitely want to go there again.

Here’s one of my best tips: go to the L’Artisan website, look at the upper right hand corner and you’ll see various flags for the countries where L’Artisan has stores. Click on the one that applies to you. I live in Canada, so I click on the American flag.
