Why don’t you…

BUY I’m crazy about vintage and have been since a teenager, and love to wear my pieces often and mixed up with my other stuff. Here are a pair of sneakers that deserve to be back in my closet…Reebok Club C Vintage that will go with everything and make it modern again. READ   With the death of Karl Lagerfeld why not catch up on the career of this incredibly talented superman? I’m so privileged to have been to several of his mesmerizingly fast ( the speed at which the models exited was head turning!) shows, to have gawked at…

Valentine's Day + The Life Juice

Fall in love with yourself. Everyday.

  I’m an incurable romantic and believe love and friendship should be celebrated everyday, in the smallest of ways to big generous gestures. For me, a huge generous gesture is not only a physical gift, or a weekend away, but also the generosity of spirit. Such as, when we are sure we’re right but gladly, and simply say these magical words, “…yes dear ”  to avoid a potential a confrontation, that’s romantic and considerate. Valentine’s day is a relatively new celebration in Portugal, not unlike Halloween, but everybody, commercially that is, has taken to it. So it is red hearts,…

My 5 favourite Instagram accounts

My 5 Favourite Instagram accounts

As an early convert to Instagram, ( I have to admit I don’t like FB at all ), I cannot get by without my daily fix of the people that I’ve grown to love over the years, or others that are new! These Fab 5 are the more generalistic accounts , they’re the ones that I think are unique, that make me laugh, inspire me do more in the home or simply read about THEIR fabulous lives! @serenacrawford My love affair with Serena starts firstly because she loves Africa, its space and dimension, lives in Cape Town, secondly because she…

It’s from a site that I love to look at once in a while called Desire to…

Have a Great Weekend.

Here in Lisbon it’s such a glorious Autumn that it feels more like Spring, with no wind this week and temperatures around 20 C, it’s hard to know what exactly to wear (sandals?), or cook (still salads? but feel like pasta!), sweaters or coats? Maybe just coffee and macarons will do the trick! We don’t officially celebrate Halloween in Portugal, but there is merchandise in all the local shops, like at Tiger  and there are a couple of Halloween themed parties around. I’ve always wanted to throw a proper  Halloween party inspired by  the master of themed parties herself, the…
