11 Things That Spain Does Better Than America
Madison Hilliard

Don't get me wrong, America knows how to have a good time! But when in Spain, there are just some things that cannot be replicated. $3 wine and more!

1. Sangria


A beautiful, tasty pitcher of Sangria can get you through anythig. You can buy it in a plastic bottle or a can, and it will still taste better than any Sangria from the US. Like a little fizz? Try tinto de verano!

2. Tanning

Topless tanning is completely normal and no one will judge or shame you! Plus, you can tell your friends you swam topless in the Mediterranean. #freethenipple

3. Tapas


Because ordering multiple little, delicious plates of food is so much better than having to choose 1 dish. BONUS: You can order even more plates to share with friends!

4. Wine

Need I say more? I don't need to but I will. 3 dollar bottles of wine that taste like pure bliss are lining the shelves in Spain.

5. Shopping


Spain tends to be a little ahead of the curve when it comes to trends and new styles. Plus, a lot of their stores change out the options and restock the store frequently, so there is always something new to buy! Need new shoes? Theres basically a shoe store on every corner.

6. Siesta

Siesta is a break in the afternoon to go home, rest, and eat. Most places of business close down during this time. It's like a scheduled nap everyday!

7. Gelato


If you haven't had gelato made fresh in Europe, I would recommend flying over and getting some. It takes icecream to an entirely new level.

8. Walking everywhere

This may seem like a negative thing, but being able to walk everywhere is so nice! Not only are you getting some exercise in so you can stuff your face with tapas, you don't have to sit in traffic or worry about finding parking.

9. The night life

Okay, this one is debatable BUT, they do go pretty hard in Spain. Don't expect to go out before 1AM or come home before 4AM during a night out.

10. Day drinking is a norm


When wine is that good, you'd want to day drink too.

11. It's freaking SPAIN!

Beautiful weather, plenty of sites to see, and good prices. Booking your ticket now?

- Since my late teens, I have had wavy, unruly hair that is susceptible to frizz from heat damage.

- I've made a conscious effort to try and eliminate heat styling products from my hair regimen in order to do less damage in the form of split ends and hair loss.

- When I first tried Tineco's MODA ONE Smart Ionic Hair Dryer, I was immediately amazed by how quickly it dried my thick strands and how straight/sleek my hair was with minimal work.

Up to my late teen years, my thick, soft, silky straight hair was the envy of nearly everyone I encountered. I totally took it for granted till my hair began to evolve into being more wavy and unruly with random patches of wavy and straight hair.

I will preach this until the day I'm in the ground, nudes are an essential.

They are just as essential as toilet paper is right now and they have more power than just being a photo that's hidden on your iPhone. Nudes aren't just a way to turn on the guy/girl you've been hanging out with, but they can elicit a feeling of confidence and pure sexuality.
