Costa Nova Stripes

Claudie Pierlot has fast become my favourite fashion store – their classic French style with a modern twist had me as soon as I saw their first pieces of their SS16 collection – I knew of the brand before but recently it just conquered me!

After having found the perfect dress for…

She was absolutely lovely and we…

Summer Beauty Essentials

Despite being a self confessed beauty addict, even I cannot handle too much make up when it’s boiling hot out.

Apesar de ser uma confessa viciada em produtos de beleza e maquilhagem, nem eu consigo aguentar muita maquilhagem quando está um calor abrasador na rua. Durante as duas semanas que estou de férias em Portugal onde está um calor à volta dos 30ºC, escolho a simplicidade. Aqui fica uma ideia do que me…
