London files #5 – A little bit of Paris in London

South Kensington is one of my favourite parts of London – not only does it have my favourite ever museum (V&A) as well as the Natural History and Science museums, it’s also home to stunning houses and charming streets. Last weekend I decided to explore another side of this area: the French cafés. I knew there was a big French influence around the area as I had already visited the Institut Français, where years ago I attended a Ciné Lumiére special screening of Mathieu Kassovitz’ film Rebellion. This time, though, my goal was to find and try two patisseries I’d…

Hello September!

I often still find myself craving a reset around the start of September. There was a post last week on Career Girl Daily about how September is the best month to set goals – and that really rang a bell!

A série Stranger Things surgiu no meu radar pouco depois de ter sido lançada no Netflix, já…

London files #3 – A morning in Hampstead

On the last Saturday in July, I woke up early and headed to Hampstead to meet up with the wonderful and super talented Nadia Meli. No último sábado de Julho, acordei cedo e dirigi-me para Hampstead para me encontrar com a querida e super talentosa Nadia Meli. I got in touch with Nadia because I wanted to boost my confidence, and my blog, by doing a proper photo session, and was really interested in working with her after seeing the photos she took of Anna (from Vivianna Does Makeup) and Mark, which were stunning. She was absolutely lovely and we…
