April Favourites

The past month was hectic and really fun – here are my favourite things and moments! O mês passado foi agitado e super divertido – aqui ficam as minhas coisas e os meus momentos preferidos! ‘O Homem que Inventa Setembros’ (aka Dad’s book launch) As I mentioned in my April plans post, this month saw the launch of my dad’s first book, ‘O Homem que Inventa Setembros’, and I went back to Portugal and to my family’s hometown for the presentation.
