New York City Guide – Everything You Need to Know

New York City guide

After a few months of roaming around, trying new things, visiting same old places, I’m finally launching my New York City guide! It’s still a work in progress – and I guess it will always be as long as I live here. But I’ll be making sure to update it as often as possible and develop a space where you can easily read, recommend and enjoy. This New York City...

11 Howard

11 Howard

Welcome to 11 Howard! This weekend, me and M checked in one of the hippest hotels in Manhattan. Over this short stay, we got to enjoy the neighborhood and explore deeper the realms of this great area (which you can also see here). We lived a true tourist-weekend, hoping over from wine to cocktail, dinner to window shopping. We started by checking in and were greeted in the warmest way....

Nothing Like I’ve Ever Done Before

nothing like I've ever done before

If you follow me on Instagram, you might’ve seen a change in scenery and palette. After months of debating if I was coming home for my mother’s 60th birthday, on the last possible day, I decided to come. I crossed the idea off my mind for some time. It was a subject of great sadness to be missing another key moment in my family’s array. Her birthday was this past...

Our Experience On Getting a Puppy

our experience on getting a puppy

Ever since I got Poppy, I was asked a lot of questions about how we got him and how the process went. Thanks you guys! It feels amazing to know you’re on that side reading and giving me feedback. So, I decided to dedicate a whole post to it. Not that it was a hard process but just to tell you our experience on getting a puppy. Ever since we...

Weekend Highlights – Lisbon Edition

Doors of Alfama, Lisbon. If you always want to get a first look at whatever the heck I’m doing, make sure you’re following me on Instagram (@eduardamsl) and Snapchat (@daduxa). The first scoop is always in one of these amazing platforms. And while at it, this weekend was a pretty tough/amazing one. On Friday, me and my parents left my hometown and drove to Lisbon to spend the last few...

August Mood Board and To Do List

august mood board and to do list

This year is going by too damn quickly. It’s already August and I still feel like it should be April. I arrived in Portugal earlier this morning and am already heading back south with my parents (follow along on Instagram and Snapchat for more updates). I feel like 2016 has been a blob and we’ve been commuting ever since the beginning. Our lives are in such a transitional state that...

We Are Moving!

we are moving

If you follow me on Pinterest you might’ve noticed that my behavior has been close to a mad person. The decor bug hit hard and I’ve been pinning away thousands of new ideas. After two years of living in the same apartment in New York, we are moving! It was a combination of circumstances and the process of renting an apartment in New York is beyond complicated (which I’ll throughly cover soon)....

Two Years in New York City

moving to new york city

Today, me and M are celebrating our two year move to New York City. Every time, I like to reflect upon this major change and how it has been to live, once again, abroad. I still remember the feeling I had leaving my parents at the airport. Being even more anxious than normal during the flight and the first glimpse I got of America. I was restless, emotional, crying a lot and thinking...

Los Angeles Travel Vlog

I finally managed to upload our Los Angeles travel vlog – which was already done but time was running short for last tweaks. After San Francisco, we went down the Pacific Coast through Monterey, Carmel-by-the-sea and Big Sur and ended our trip with a few days in Los Angeles. For M, this was his favorite part, but for me, it took a little bit more time to get used to L.A....

Pacific Coast Vlog

Turns out this second video was harder to make than the San Francisco one, with so many great footage of the amazing and breathtaking Big Sur. Halfway through our vacation, me and M rented a car and ventured to Los Angeles, but not without stopping for a night to enjoy the wonders of the West Coast. We stopped in Monterey, had dinner at the Post Ranch Inn and walked near...
