About me

Welcome! I’m Teresa, creator and writer of Alfacinha Stories, a blog I started in 2014 to share my beauty and lifestyle favourites, including books, movies and travel.

Originally from Portugal, I completed my degree in Communication studies in Lisbon, before moving to the UK to do an MSc in International Marketing Management at Leeds University Business School.

Over the last few years I’ve been working in the Media industry in London (and in Lisbon for some time), and this blog has been something I put together so I can be more creative, share my passions, and practice my first love, which is writing.

I love autumn and spring, but also cold sunny days in winter. Pastel colours like blush pink and light blue are my favourites, and I am also a sucker for anything gold and sparkly. I love a good romantic comedy with a cup of tea. Lisbon and London are my hometowns and I love them both. Instagram and Pinterest make me very happy.

Hope to hear from you soon!
