3 Fall Essentials in 2017

fall essentials

As much as I want to hold on to summer, fall is all around – almost like Christmas. I’m begging the sun gods to hold on a little longer so I can enjoy smooth days at the beach until October. But it’s been pretty chilly the past few days. Which has made my closet choices a bit more fall-y. The two trips I took to Lisbon (seen here and here), were...

Episode 20: a Typical Summer Day in Lagos, Portugal

typical summer day

I’ve been MIA, yet again. To be honest, I wanted to enjoy last week with my husband – who left for New York yesterday. I still posted on Monday and Tuesday but felt like I wanted to switch off. And that’s exactly what I did. That’s why yesterday I spent 4 hours going through hundreds of emails. I kid you not. But, meanwhile, we recorded a very typical summer day in...

What I Would Wear to Fashion Week

fashion week

I know what you must be thinking. She’s never been. Maybe she never will be. But she can dream. My husband has a saying that goes like this: you might not touch the moon, but at least your feet rose from the ground. Ever since I moved to New York (3 years ago), New York Fashion Week has been on my radar. It’s not just another event, it’s a series of...

Episode 19: Our Friends Got Married

got married

Hi everyone! I hope you’re still there, even though I’ve been posting only 3 days a week. Summer back home is keeping me busy and last week was a whirlwind. I barely had time to sleep. Between meeting a few friends, dinners, hairdressers and a very important wedding, I was exhausted. But all for very good reasons! Last Friday, two of our closest friends got married in the beautiful town...

Episode 18: Sagres, the Most Western Point in the Algarve

Sagres

Last Sunday, I drove with my parents and a friend to the most western point in the Algarve: Sagres. This small town is best known for its big waves, beautiful and natural sights and unmistakable beaches. Even though, there’s a big resemblance to Big Sur – for a minute there I got really confused – there’s no place like it. One of my favorite thing to do back home, is...

How to Change Your Life With One Simple Decision

how to change your life

There’s a constant battle inside me that often ponders about if I’m doing the right thing or not. A week or so ago, I texted my husband saying I was not feeling myself. Contrary to what Beyonce and Nicki Minaj sing, I’ve been struggling deeply inside. It may not seem like it, and I never let it show, but it’s been getting to me. Granted, since I came home, I...

Episode 17: We Spent the Night at the Beach

beach

It all started around 14 years ago when I first went to Banho 29. Every year, in my hometown, there’s a party on the beach on the 29th of August. It’s been happening for years, but the first time I went, I was 14. I just started hanging out with a new group of, older, friends, and they organized to go to the party. It’s the one time of the year...

Episode 16: Going Back Home to Portugal

Portugal

Early last week we got the confirmation that we could travel. I immediately booked the next flight back home and flew on Thursday the 24th. The flight is overnight, so I got to Portugal early morning on Friday. My father picked me up and we had lunch with my brother in Lisbon before heading south. It takes us around 2 and half hours to get home and by 5pm, we’d arrived....

How to Wear a Pair of Levi’s Shorts Two Different Ways

Levi's shorts

Even though summer is almost over as we’re approaching September, I’m still hanging on. As long as possible if I may say so. I’m not taking fall for an answer, and decided to rebel against it by buying a pair of Levi’s shorts. Thought I was in need of a pair, since all of mine were back home and I had no idea when I was going back. What I...

Episode 15: I Went to the US Open with the Portuguese

US Open

Last week, the US Open qualifying started. For my husband, that’s the event of the year. Heading out to Flushing Meadows, hanging out with his friends and other players. Soaking in all the tennis he can. Early last week, I went to watch a derby (two Portuguese playing against each other). It was a fun and quiet Tuesday. I love seeing M at these events, it brings out a part...
