Black Friday 2017: get ahead of all the Christmas shopping and benefit with these tricks!

If this upcoming Christmas you’d love to save some money and avoid the hassle of late Christmas shopping, you should mark on your calendar the 24th of November. And if you’re asking yourself why…it’s because Black Friday will be here!

This day began to be celebrated in the USA during the 1960’s, exactly the day before of Thanksgiving and a bit earlier than Christmas. Slowly it began to expand worldwide until nowadays it has become one of the most comercial days of the year with the best discount offers.

That is precisely why it is a day designed to catch the best offers and plan ahead your Christmas shopping, not only get what you’re looking for, but also get the best deal!

Therefore, how can we make the best of this day and benefit from those deals before the Christmas celebrations? Here are some of our tips that will definitely help you out:

  • Make a list and write down what you’re looking for: a few days before (or months), make a list with all those gadgets you want to buy and pin down those stores or websites that have them. Also, have a look at their prices and write that down…it wouldn’t be the first time that the previous days to Black Friday some stores take advantage and increase their prices so that when the day comes, they are selling at the original Price with what users believe is a “discount”.
  • Shop online: take your time previously to search online for what you’re looking and add it to your shopping cart so that the purchase can be made quicker. To ensure that you can do this, sign up on each online shop so it’ll be easier for you. And don’t forget about adding any discount codes!
  • Be careful with your credit card: even online shopping one may find that there are thieves online who create fake online stores to get your card information and steal. Also, bear in mind your connection and try to avoid using public Wi-Fi, as there is more chance that phising can occur.
  • Compare between brands: we are pretty sure that by doing a previous comparison you’ll already see different prices between brands.
  • Dress comfortably and wake up early: even though many of Black Friday’s deals are online, there are also many shops in the streets that join on this day. If you prefer to shop in person, make sure you wear some comfortable shoes and head to the stores during the time when less people go (working hours, lunch time…).
  • Pay attention to the return policies: it could happen that with the excitement of shopping you may not look previously at the shopping and return policies of that product. Take a close look! Sometimes with good deals you don’t have the chance to give it back or simply change it for another product… therefore think carefully before buying if it’s worth it or not.

 

With all this information and your intuition we’re pretty sure that this Christmas you’ll manage to make all your loved ones happy with some cool presents at the best price!

Tips and tricks to combat the “post-vacation blues”

Coming back from holidays isn’t easy and at Crowne Plaza Barcelona we know it. Getting back into routine and returning to our day to day life after a long period of relaxing and enjoying, can make it quite uphill for everyone. Either if you have been travelling around the world this summer or if you’ve simply stayed at home resting, here are some of our tips to combat those post-vacation blues and try and make your life back to routine as easy as posible!

 

1. Frame your memories
Pick up a pen and paper to express everything that you’ve lived. Put together your words with photographs, write down the name of the song that was playing in that moment and make sure you collect those special moments that will make you smile.

 

2. Organize fun plans
Going back to work after the holidays can make us feel a bit down. For that reason it is important to have short-term plans that will keep us motivated throughout the following months. A weekend getaway, dinner with friends or throwing a party are great options!

 

3. Get back on a schedule
During the holidays your timetable is probably way different to the usual. We get to go to bed late, wake up even later, eat whenever and more than once such a relaxed state will take us to sleep early. So before you go back to your routine, try and organize your days so that you slowly get back to normal hours and having your usual schedule.

 

4. Ten minutes in bed
When you start again with your routine don’t start with a hurry. Make sure you stay 10 minutes more in bed when you wake up in order to slowly start your day, meditate and steel yourself for a new day with new responsibilities and challenges. We’re sure that starting your days like this will make them much easier and pleasant!

 

5. Piano, piano… on your first day back at work
Take your first day back at work easy and with patience, and don’t let stress take over your workspace. Pay attention to changes and movements that have occurred while you were away and confront every situation with your best energy!

 

6. Organize your tasks
After having been away for a long time it is basic to start by organizing your ideas. Make sure before you get started with anything else that you organize your tasks so that nothing skips your hands. In your notebook, a calendar or on your phone, it will definitely be of much help.

 

7. Move your body!
Being active again is essential, so make sure you go back to doing sport in order to burn that energy and combat those blues after the holidays. It works!

 

8. Eat healthy
Eating a healthy and balanced diet will not only benefit us but it will help us feel good with ourselves too. Leave aside for a while those drinks, vermouths, beers, snacks and ice creams and fill your fridge and pantry with fresh fruit, veggies, meat or fish.

 

9. Moderate caffeine
Caffeine works to wake us up but an excessive consumption can lead us to have more stress and anxiety. By moderating your intake of coffee or tea it will enable you to get back to work without any alterations or extra nervousness.

 

10. Think positive
Yes, the holidays are over but that shouldn’t be such a big drama! Think positive thoughts: “Today the sun is shining bright”, “I’m so ready to take over the world!” or “I can’t wait to see all my friends!” will definitely help to bring a smile to your face and fight any negative impacts.

 

As you can see these are just some of the tips that will get you back on track and combat those post-holiday blues. The secret lies in listening to yourself and doing what your body really asks for in order to recover your personal wellbeing. Slowly this path will take you to have a permanent smile when you wake up and go back to your everyday routine.

Tips and advantages of sun bathing this summer in Barcelona, and getting a tan like nobody else!

When Summer arrives it is usual that we spend much more time outdoors: whether it is at the beach, in the mountain, doing sport or just relaxing at a terrace, which is why we all tend to get tan. And one of the best ways that we can think of sun bathing is by doing it in the new rooftop terrace at Crowne Plaza Barcelona.

In this post we have collected some of the advantages and tips for you to enjoy the best moments of this summer in 173 Rooftop Terrace.

 

Protect yourself!
Sunscreen is a basic you can’t forget. It is essential to protect your skin from the sun rays, specially between 12 and 4 pm as it is when it hits harder. Furthermore, it is important that you apply it on your body half an hour before exposing it to the sun and repeat the process several times to avoid unnecessary sun burns.

 

Tanning kit
When you have the intention of sunbathing, whether it’s at the beach, countryside or in a swimming pool, there are certain elements you also can’t forget. As we said before sun screen tops the list however you should also consider: sunglasses, a towel, flip flops, a hat, a book or magazine, headphones, some fruit, … and anything else you can think of to keep you busy under the sun!

 

Hydrate
Before getting under the sun you must check if you have water with you to keep yourself hydrated throughout the day. By drinking small sips your skin and body will appreciate it! And if water doesn’t convince you, you can also try one of our healthy juices and beverages at 173 Rooftop Terrace.

 

Natural beauty
Don’t expose your skin to the sun if you are wearing any chemical products on your face or body such as make up, deodorant or lotion. It’s also not a good idea if you are wearing perfume or cologne… all of these products can cause sunspots on your skin!

 

Step by step
After Winter where we have spent days and months wearing big cozy jumpers and long jeans, our skin hasn’t been producing any melanin for which it tends to be much more pale than usual. When the summer arrives and the hours of sun increase it is highly recommended to start exposing your skin to the sun in small dosis, in order to prepare your skin and be capable of spending an entire day at the beach without harming it.

 

Smiles and happiness
Vitamin D is one of the main substances that our body gets from the sun and it definitely has a big positive impact on us, helping to improve our mood. What better way to absorb some of that happiness vitamin than in 173 Rooftop Terrace? Just because of its’ views, the stillness you can breathe and the comfort that it offers, it will increase your serotonin to the maximum level!

 

There are many places from which we can enjoy the rays of sun but if you add to it somewhere nice and comfortable, with amazing views and the best services at your reach… 173 Rooftop Terrace at Crowne Plaza Barcelona is your tiny oasis in the middle of the city. Don’t wait any longer and come and visit us for the best sunsets in town!

Are you staying in Barcelona during this Summer? Here are some cool plans to do!

Summer is always the perfect time to enjoy doing what you love: travel, visit your family, spend more time outdoors… Big cities seem empty, however it’s only an appearance! During the Summer many people still go to work and keep on with their day to day which is why we have decided to bring together some of the best plans to do in Barcelona during this Summer, for those who want to make the most of their time in the city!

 

Beach, water sports or swimming pool
One of Barcelona’s most valued treasures is the sea. Lucky us, specially during the Summer! The fact that we have the Mediterranean Sea so close allows us to do all sorts of water activities: paddle surf, windsurf, swimming, sailing, etc. However if getting in the sea is not really your cup of tea you can always play volleyball in the sand, beach tennis or simply sun bathe to soak in those sun rays while reading a book. To sum up, just like in many other cities Barcelona also has local and private swimming pools, another great option to feel refreshed!

 

Mountains and parks
Not only does Barcelona have the sea but we also are very close to the mountains. Even though they aren’t the highest of this region they are the perfect escape to go outdoors into nature. The area of Tibidabo, carretera de les Aigües or Montjuïc are perfect places to go to and enjoy being outside the city for a couple hours. If you prefer to stay in the urban area you can always go for a walk to Parc of Ciudadela, Parc of Montjuïc or any other green area in the city.

 

Music festivals
When the warm months roll in it is almost impossible for a day to go by in Barcelona without music. Summer festivals are some of the best summer days for locals and tourists: Barcelona Beach Festival, Cruïlla Festival, Música als Parcs, Circuit Festival, Jardins of Pedralbes Festival, summer concerts at Poble Espanyol or BAM are some of them. If you love music you should definitely take a look at some of them!

 

Activities and shows
The cultural offer in Barcelona is amazing, both during daytime and at night. There are all kinds of activities for everyone: open air cinema, tours around the city, museums, parks, exhibitions, nightlife… and the list could keep on!

 

Local neighbourhood festivities
Three of the most known local festivities in Barcelona that take place during the Summer are Fiestas of Gracia, Fiestas of Sants and Fiestas of Sant Roc. They are all local festivities that honour each of the three neighbourhoods in the city and that will welcome with open arms all visitors where you will enjoy popular local food, concerts, “castellers”, famous Catalan dance “sardanas”, magic and alternative shows… The streets simply fill up with people and fun.

 

To sum up, these are some of the coolest plans to enjoy in Barcelona during the Summer. In addition, Crowne Plaza Barcelona will open very soon the 173 Rooftop Terrace, the terrace in Montjuïc with the best views in Barcelona.

 

There is no longer any excuse to make the most of this city!

San Juan’s Eve, a night of magic and tradition

San Juan, Saint John’s Eve or Sant Joan, is one of the most expected popular celebrations in Spain of June and the Summer time in general. The eve of the 23rd of June marks the beginning of the Summer, the endless days of sun, holidays, free time and watching sunsets from a rooftop. It is also a day of meeting with friends and family and getting to share this popular tradition, which is why we decided to bring to you in this post some of the most famous traditions on the year’s shortest night in Barcelona and surroundings. Had you heard of any of them?

 

Fire and bonfires
Fire is one of the main characters during San Juan’s Eve, which already reveals part of this night’s traditions. This midsummer night is all about making bonfires, especially at the beach. The tradition dates back to centuries ago when there was a belief that fire symbolized the welcoming of Summer solstice.

Another tradition that still lasts through time is the thought of fire’s light and heat to drive away evil spirits, as well as extending the amount of hours a day to give the Sun more strength, as from this night on the days start becoming shorter and shorter until Fall arrives.

 

Make a wish whilst jumping over a bonfire
It definitely is a risky activity, not suitable for minors and only to be considered if one is fully aware of the situation and its’ risks. During the night of San Juan many are brave enough to challenge the fire and jump over the bonfire while making a wish at the same time. If it becomes true or not, that’s only a matter of luck!

Get a taste of the “Coca of San Juan” and toast with a glass of cava

The “Coca of San Juan” is one of the highlights of June 23rd. This dessert consists of a pie made out of flour covered with glazed fruit and sugar. To go with the pie it is very common to toast with a glass of cava, a traditional sparkling wine from the provinces of Barcelona and Tarragona.

 

Fireworks
Fireworks are also a must on this summer night of celebrations. Explosions filled with colour and spark light up the night sky forming all sorts of shapes and forms and the sound of the firecrackers will be heard from far away. An authentic performance.

 

Swimming in the sea at night
If you celebrate San Juan’s Eve around the coast one of the most magical traditions on this night is to go for a swim after midnight when the sea is completely dark or waiting for the sun to rise, welcoming the next day.

 

Music and dancing
Almost everywhere you go on this night you will find streets and beaches filled with people celebrating and concerts and music going on. Those who make their bonfire will very probably be dancing around the fire. Those who don’t, will probably also be dancing under the moonlight.

 

Burn what is no longer useful
Like we mentioned at the very beginning fire is one of they key elements of the night of San Juan. Many people will follow the tradition of bringing with them what is no longer useful and throw it into the fire to burn. Furniture, paintings, clothing… or even last year’s school books!

 

Now that you’ve learnt a bit more about some of the most typical traditions of San Juan, are you in to join any of them?

Rooftop terraces, what is there about them that we love so much?

Rooftops are a big attraction for us, it’s inevitable. In a country where the sun shines brightly it is almost hard to escape the temptation of enjoying a rooftop terrace and where better to do so than in Barcelona. For this reason, we have decided to bring you 10 reasons to why you should decide to go spend a good time in one of them and let yourself be led by its’ magic.

 

  1. Share moments

Spending a morning or evening in a rooftop terrace with views to the entire city is one of the best ways to share a good time with friends. Conversations, laughs, debates, ideas,… Time goes by and without realizing we have been sharing great moments that become instant memories and experiences.

 

  1. Toast for the good times

When you sit at a table in a rooftop bar, you will probably want to enjoy it with a drink in hand, no matter if it’s water, soda, a beer or a cocktail. And there is no better way to celebrate that moment than with a toast, exchanging looks and smiles with good company.

 

  1. Taste the flavours of quality

Rooftops are already attractive themselves, however if they also offer good food the positive experience exceeds any expectation. The taste of a quality dish or simply a delicious snack, it will definitely help to get everyone at the table at their best mood.

 

  1. Feel the sun kiss your skin

Picture yourself sun bathing in a rooftop or simply feeling the breeze and the sun kiss your skin, one of the best pleasures that nature has given us. A rooftop in Barcelona where the sun shines at its brightest sounds like the place where we would like to be now that the nice weather is around the corner. The sun gives us life!

 

  1. Relax and disconnection

One of the best ways to disconnect and relax is by visiting a rooftop terrace where one can feel comfortable and time flies. You can read, listen to music, talk or simply watch the scenic views from the top. It is the place where everything stops, where you can get away from any problem and simply focus on the happiness of the moment.

 

  1. Enjoy the views

Good views are something precious, and in big cities like Barcelona only a few can really presume of their own. It’s true… views can take your breath away and we all look to find those daydream sceneries. Either with ocean views, views to the mountain or simply to the city roofs, it is definitely somewhere to let go and enjoy.

 

  1. End your the day the right way… with a sunset

Sunsets are always special. Watching the sun set from somewhere privileged, like a rooftop, can turn it even more magical. For us there is no better way to end the day than with the last rays of sun, good company and in a special place.

 

  1. Feel the comfort

Comfort should always be one of your main priorities when deciding between different options. In the case of a rooftop terrace, who wouldn’t want to lie back in a comfy chair with a good service at your disposal for anything you need? When things are made easy, it is more than likely we will decide to enjoy more time there!

 

  1. The surroundings

What surrounds you is also something important to consider when choosing which rooftop terrace to go to. Somewhere beautiful and peaceful will definitely help you to take in that perfect moment.

 

  1. Wet your feet in the pool

A rooftop terrace with a swimming pool, can it get any better? If you have ever had the chance of getting your feet wet while the music plays and the sun shines from the very top, you know what we’re talking about. An indescribable feeling that we highly recommend.

 

In conclusion, these are only some of the main reasons why in Crowne Plaza Barcelona we believe that spending time in a nice rooftop terrace is definitely worth it, and the list could keep going on and on.

 

 

So what about you, have your found your dream rooftop terrace already?
