Sorry about my absence this week. I’ve had trouble posting. AND IT’S NOT THAT THE IDEAS ARE AT ALL LACKING ! I’m running around a lot but I have a few treasures in store for you : Francis Kurkdjian’s creative laboratory, unmissable exhibitions for the kids, cooking books tried out in situ, a new recipe shot by Armelle Kerall, ten beauty commandments by Lisa Eldridge, Romain the colorist, Davis Factor (Max’s grandson) and Essie the nail polish Queen…New beauty addresses (including a massage institute to die for). Patience !
While you’re all waiting, back to Barcelona to what appears to be a drugstore. Clinical light, sale assistants in hospital blouses, medical signs : this apothecary deals Happy Pills
without LSD nor any other toxic substance. Just delicious sweets kept in “therapeutic” bottles. There’s something for everyone. Whatever your taste, whatever your symptom : testicular pain, a drop in your libido, hormonal upset, tension with your boss, heartbreak…Available in a kit or sold individually, the transparent flasks are filled with candy of your choice. Then they’re labelled with the "problem" as indicated by you. What’s more, the signature at the bottom of their tongue-shaped visitors card is the following, “open your mouth, stick out your tongue and say Aaaaah !”. A must-do if you go to Spain.
Happy Pills, several addresses in Barcelona, one boutique in Bilbao and another in Zaragoza, and even it’s own website (great !) with an eshop, Tel of a Barcelona boutique : +34 933 043 097
