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...

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...

Episode 17: We Spent the Night at the 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....

Let Summer 2017 Begin

As this is posted, I’ll be on a plane heading back home. I can’t tell you how excited I am and how I wanted to immediately share the news with everyone. But as it turns out, I felt overwhelmed with the information and it took me a couple of days to settle down. We found out Monday night that our authorizations to travel and work arrived. I want to throughly explain...

Episode 14: a Monday in August and the Solar Eclipse

Monday

When we were in Charleston (you can see episode 12 and 13), I made a decision. Because I don’t always feel like vlogging. And sometimes it’s hard to come home after a long day and still edit the video for the next day. I’m now going to vlog whenever I want. But still publish the videos every Monday and Thursday on the blog and my YouTube channel. So this past...

Episode 13: We Saw Alligators and Drove Down to Savannah

You’re probably sick and tired of all the Charleston spam. It’s a sort of #sorrynotsorry moment because I’m still very much holding on to those 4 beautiful days. On the second day of exploring Charleston, we had breakfast at the Butcher and Bee, and headed to the Magnolia Plantation. Charleston is famous for having a few plantations in its surroundings and we chose the Magnolia because of their famous gardens. It...

Episode 12: Roadtrip to Charleston

I finally got around to organizing the footage we did in Charleston. I’m already nostalgic and have only been back in New York for two days. Because it might get a bit tricky to condense 4 days into a 6 minute video, I decided to spread it out through two videos. Today I’m sharing the first half of our trip to Charleston. It started bright and early last Thursday. We left New...

Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston

Happy, happy Monday! I hope you had an amazing weekend – I surely have. If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know where me and my husband travelled to. If not, you should definitely follow and we came all the way to Charleston, South Carolina. With the growing anxiety, stress and tiredness of the past few months, we were in need of a quick escape. Montauk and biking through...

20 Summer Finds

summer finds

Even though most people around the web are already contemplating the end of summer, mine hasn’t even started. I wrote here that I only really feel the summer when I’m back home. Which makes it all the more harder to endure these months in New York. But, with positive vibes in mind, I made a list of the 20 summer finds. Whether I’m talking about fashion, places or anything that falls...
