“Every relationship rests on three legs: accepting, supporting and challenging. That's really it, isn't it? You want your relationships to be grounded on accepting each other as you are. On supporting each other through the inevitable ups and downs. On challenging each other to become more, to grow, to flourish."

Last couple of days I have actually put everything on a side, work, fashion, even following NY fashion week, set on an airplane leaving from Budapest to Madrid at 5 am in the morning and then drove with a friend from Madrid to Vitoria on South of Spain to support my boyfriend during important tournament - Copa Del Rey (King's Cup). First game they played was against Real Madrid, club in which he played last couple of seasons and where many of his dear friends still play. This was actually a true 'finale' game as Barcelona and Real Madrid are realistically two best basketball clubs in their league.

Thankfully, my boyfriends team - Barcelona, won the first game after two quite emotional overtimes, I lost my voice cheering, I knew how much this game means to him so our friend Zoran (who took most of these photos) and I sat right behind the basket with big Croatian flag so he can see us and hear us during hardest minutes of the game. It worked! They won both of first two games and tonight they are playing in finals. If they win, and I am sure they will, this will be our second medal from Copa Del Rey in two years since we have been together. 

It is hard, we both work and travel a whole lot and are often tired but one thing we promised each other is to make each other our first priority. Meaning, when we have very important or emotionally draining work event, be in something related to my blog or work or for him important game, the other person will take a first flight and come to support, no matter what.

Since the weather was quite cold and rainy and I tried to spend some time with my boyfriend in between his practices, rest breaks, media meetings and games I found just about an hour or so for a quick run around town with our friend so I stopped by Kiko and iF parfumeria to get some of my favorite beauty essentials which I didn't have time to stock up on during last busy work week.

Vitoria-Gasteiz had a really bad weather last couple of days, raining, snowing and cold, however this little town is really special by so many things. It is first in the whole Spain as per green areas and cultural places per capita, also it is second as per quality and standard of living in Spain. Southern Spain - Pais Vasco is the richest part of Spain.  This area is also known by its famous Inernational Jazz Festival.

Here I stayed at historic and comfy hotel Paradores, hotel is very close by car to city center, about 10-15 minutes, staff in general doesn't speak good English but were quite helpful and sweet, food in hotel is pricey but delicious.
