Yesterday I had the opportunity to visit the Bobbi Brown new store in Madrid. Is located in one of the most exclusive neighborhoods in the capital( el barrio de Salamanca). Specifically the Lagasca Street 32. Upon entering I found a place full of elegance. The first thing that came to mind were the stores that had been in New York, London and Paris. I had to look again at the door, to make sure I was in Madrid. The decor of the place is an absolute delicacy. You could tell that the person who had designed the space knew what was good taste. I don’t remember if there was music, but if there was,should be smooth and enjoyable. At the bottom of the shop I found a young woman who was just finishing a lady makeup. I wait patiently has ended. When she finished his work. I explained her, that I had a blog and I’ll love to talk about the store. But I need her to tell me a little about the place .
