LXFactory and true friends.

There are times when you go through difficult situations in life and nobody quite understands. While there are people who have gone through the same thing that you have, you are unique and your perspective is different. So it was with me the past few months. I was...

So… somebody gave you their two cents.

Life is hard enough to navigate as it is on your own. Between a plethora of well-meaning opinions from people around us to online articles that aim to educate and mass media that suggests our ideal lifestyle, we are inundated with thoughts from...

The minimalism bandwagon.

One of the things that intrigues me about the whole minimalism movement is the fact that it has its basis in intentional living. You know, the idea that you live conscientiously and intentionally, making every single thing count. Truth be told,...

Castelo Branco.

As its name suggests, Castelo Branco is a quaint little town that's pretty much stark white (branco means white in Portuguese). There were two main attractions we were interested in which prompted our little day trip. One was the famous Jardim do Paço and the other,...

Keeping cool and focused under pressure.

Every single person on this planet has felt some degree of stress at some point in their lives. Pressures to perform, to make deadlines or to just manage life in general. Let's face it. Life isn't easy and all of us need to manage these internal...

I’m back. Sort of.

Hi friends. It has been a couple of months and here we are in March 2017! OH WOW. Over the past few months, I've been busy with work and also haven't been incredibly inspired nor motivated to update this space. While I won't say that I'll be...

So, real life happened.

I have to admit that the past two weeks have been some kind of a mountain I had to hike over. It felt like the longest, most arduous hike ever and with no companion by your side. Hi-five if you understand exactly what that means. It is true that...

Almost pickpocketed in Lisbon. #storytime

Lisbon, you're so beautiful. But in the little tourist streets of Santa Apolónia, you are one shady lady. There is a little backstory to this. In fact, it boils down to my misguided sense of exploration and almost complete obliviousness. At...

August roundup.

August has passed in a whirlwind! Someone was telling me that the days pass so slowly here in Portugal and yet another said that the days were going by extremely fast. I tend to identify with the latter. When you're busy and incredibly...

Living with friends in a foreign land.

Due to various circumstances and the nature of my work, I found myself leading a team of four (myself included) into Portugal to share the gospel with the Portuguese. It's something I've never done and which seemed daunting at first, but I would seriously...

Official business in Leiria.

I only ever go to Leiria for official business. So far I've been there once and yesterday, a second time. It's a pretty but fairly quiet town and there is nothing much to see if you are interested in quaint shops and eateries. Or major shopping...

Vlogging.

I never would've thought I would start vlogging in a million years. The primary reason being self-consciousness over what people might think with regards to the way I speak and the way I look. And what more when I speak to the camera in public! The other reason that...
