Monthly Archives: December 2015

Christmas is everything it should be this year. First of all, I am most grateful to be celebrating in a house where there is so much warmth and love, despite being seven thousand miles away from home. It is a season about family gatherings and I can’t imagine a better way to bond with my new family – cooking in the Gomes kitchen; peeling potatoes and tasting bacalhau, sitting by an actual fireplace […]

Ever since I started Snapchat, I kinda broke up with Facebook and Instagram. Here are 10 solid reasons why you should start Snapchatting too. 1.

Five Cinspirations

This week’s installment of 5 Cinspirations is one of the special editions that don’t come by very often. It records some precious, extraordinary moments during my first visit to Portugal (as one’s fiancé). 1. This picture of us {because  r e u n i t e d!} 2. É’s boat collection {because it is definitely more interesting than a boy who collects race cars or robots} 3. This amazing Portuguese seafood […]

Since we need a break […]

Five Cinspirations

Today I woke up with É asking me if it’s Saturday. I said yes, and he replied with great relief: “Fuck, YES!”. Yes, 100 times to that! This weekend promises an abundance of pampering, Christmas shopping, and a farewell party that we are definitely looking forward to for the fun, but not the goodbyes. Meanwhile, here are 5 Cinspirations that kept me entertained the past week(s). 1. This IKEA blue […]

Polka Hearts

Living in a bustling city, chasing weekends; can make you lose your mind, if not your cool. To be able to do absolutely nothing, while worrying about nothing, has become an art to master in our world today. To practice dolce far niente , É and I escaped to Redang where we slept in hammocks and got a golden tan; courtesy of the warm, salty sea breeze. As there was much ado about […]
