Casual Summer Wear.

Denim, cotton, breezy summer dresses. Some of the outfits I love wearing the most involve tucked in t-shirts or blouses, denim shorts, skirts, jeans and of course nicely tailored light dresses. Below are a few outfits that I had remembered to photograph during the week as well as a new life & style vlog that…

Simplify. Living Naturally.

Over the course of the last few months, I’ve experienced living situations that have been influencing and eye opening. A few snippets of everyday life, watching locals in Central Europe and the calmness and simplicity with which they lead their lives brought about this inspired thinking. The thought of it is rather overwhelming, but there…

Footprints in the Sand.

Three things that leave me feeling good in the summer months are dreamy beach settings, summer brunches, and boho beach town outfits. Today’s post will be about a few little things that I’ve been swooning over these past couple of months all with a beach-vibe focus… Dreamy Beach Settings Peshtemal towels, net tote bags, basket…

Mid-Century Boho. Lagos.

The radio plays. I’m on my phone. Heading to Lagos. We park the car up on a hill, one suitcase only. Essentials. The rest remain in the car. 10 minutes later we are in the old town square. Waiting for Sarah. Lovely host with a lovely home. The apartment is right around the corner. Mid-century…

Beach Town.

…68 minutes later. We are now in Albufeira. Parking spots are hard to find. We managed it. Two hours to kill. Praia de Pescadores below us. Atlantic Ocean in full view. All blue. Sky to ocean. Ocean to Sky. Clean brown sand. Soft waves. The sun is making us hot. We walk towards town. Down…

A Fishing Village.

Winding roads led us to a yellow-door. Bumpy cobblestones. Painted fisherman houses lined the street. Large enough for a small car. We found a parking spot, which was a surprise. Free parking, another surprise. Bags were now rolling along the pathway breaking the pristine silence. The village is quiet on Christmas eve. The foreigners ruined…

Room to Think.

How long ago is recent. Days? Weeks? Months? It’s been a while. Creating space for new thoughts, new plans, new hobbies. No instagram for a month now. Liberating. But why? Free of the visual disturbances, the need the want, the more, the I’m not there yet…thoughts of never quite attaining perfection. Standards of perfection we…

The Nocturnal Life: Lisbon.

I am almost in tears. Sitting here pondering, remembering. Back in the city I love most. Lisboa. Signature cobbled streets,  hilly roads, custards tarts and yellow street cars. Modern-vintage hotels, renovated historic buildings with crimson rooftops and tiny balconies. Handcrafted pottery and woodwork. Sardine tins and glass bottles of olive oil. Azulejo tiles on old-age…

Goals.

Not really into this cliche stuff…but doing it anyways. Four goals for 2019: To de-clutter my home. Surround myself with only the things I really use and love. Do more outside the house. Try out a few outdoor activities or classes – boxing, more yoga, more gym time. Clean up my eating habits – less…
