Slow mornings with my thoughts.

Two months ago, I shared with you my morning routine. In a nutshell, I used to begin my day in a rush because I loved sleeping in whenever I could, even on work days. I would sleep until the last possible minute, do everything hurriedly (washing...

Avocado toast.

I never used to like the taste of avocados. They were always too earthy and creamy for my liking, which was odd for a fruit (or is it a vegetable?). Then again, I used to really dislike sashimi, but now I eat all kinds of sashimi. Clearly, some...

Are we there yet? The myth of destination.

All of us have been exposed to the concept of arrival early on in our lives. I remember asking my parents relentlessly back when I was a kid whether we’d arrived at our destination or not. “Are we there yet?” This happened countless of times. We...

Sintra.

Stepping into Sintra is like stepping into a magical wonderland where elves and leprechauns exist. At least, it feels like it anyway. It’s a quaint little town, approximately 30 minutes away from Lisbon by train. The trains come fairly often, so...

All the stuff. EDC for a typical work day.

I used to be the person who carried everything with them in a large tote or backpack. I always made sure I was ready for a variety of occasions. Water, umbrella, pens, laptop, notebooks, camera, first aid kit, makeup bag, etc... you name it, I...

I have discovered a completely new side of me. The "domestic goddess". But I use this term loosely. Very loosely. Growing up, I used to hate cleaning. Crockery in the sink, hair on the floor, etc (gross right?)... I guess I got by because there...

Where to go? Attractions in Porto.

Porto is such a huge city and like all cities of its size, there are tons of things to see and do. You could spend 2 weeks there and yet fail to explore every nook and cranny of what this lovely city has to offer. I haven't explored it...

Start the day right.

At the turn of the year, I realised that I needed to re-examine the way I begin my day. I’m a chronic snoozer. That is, without fail, I tend to hit the snooze button and say to myself “just 5 more minutes”. The problem with doing that is that a)...

Porto, my favourite city in Portugal.

Portugal is the first European country I've ever visited and it certainly won't be the last. With its rich heritage, spectacular architecture and cobbled streets, this small country (by European standards) charms you right from the get-go. As a...

Dealing with dry flaky skin in the winter.

It's been a while since I wrote about anything beauty-related. I haven't had time, money nor the inclination to try anything new and somehow I had fallen off the bandwagon of beauty blogging since, really... I am not one of those girls (nothing...
