O melhor exemplo disso são as lindíssimas portas dos prédios antigos ao longo da Avenida da República. Super common objects like doors to apartment buildings are true works of art… View Post

Good morning guys! Today I’m taking you on a little visit of one of my favourite places in Lisbon, the Ajuda Palace. Bom dia a todos!

Bottomless brunching

Last Saturday I headed to Forge & Co in Shoreditch (where I had my birthday dinner with my cousin M) for a Bottomless Brunch in celebration of my friend A’s birthday. No sábado passado fui ao restaurante Forge & Co em Shoreditch (onde tive o meu jantar de anos com a minha prima M) para um Bottomless Brunch a celebrar os anos da minha amiga A. If you’re new to the idea, a bottomless brunch includes brunch food and continued top ups of the chosen drink (in this case, Prosecco) during the time of your reservation (usually 2 hours, I… View Post
