Fitness files – BarreCore (& Sunday pamper)

In an effort to keep the healthy habits I developed over the past year or so, and after hearing so much about BarreCore, I decided to buy a pack of 10 classes and give it a proper try. Numa de tentar manter os hábitos saudáveis que desenvolvi no último ano e pouco, e depois de ouvir falar tanto sobre BarreCore, decidi comprar um pacote de 10 aulas e experimentar. Now, I’m no fitness expert, in fact I’ve always been terrible at sports and keeping fit. Não sou perita em fitness, aliás sempre fui bastante má no que toca a desporto…

Viva Portugal!

source: @UEFAEURO/Twitter I’m still recovering from last night’s emotions. The National Anthem, our Captain’s injury and heartbreaking tears, the 90 minutes with no goals and filled with brilliant performances, particularly from Rui Patricio our phenomenal keeper, the dread of a penalty shoot-out, the genius Eder goal and finally, the win!  Ainda estou a “ressacar” das emoções de ontem à noite. A Portuguesa, a lesão do nosso Capitão e as lágrimas de partir o coração, os 90 minutos sem golos e cheios de actuações brilhantes, em especial do Rui Patrício, o nosso fenomenal guarda-redes, o medo dos penaltis, o golo genial do…

London has some beautifully houses in quaint little streets, so this weekend I decided to start exploring them.

Uma das minhas coisas preferidas de viver no lado oeste de Londres é estar tão perto de zonas e bairros tão bonitos como Notting Hill e Kensington. Londres tem casas lindas em pequenas…

May Favourites

May was very special month, and one that’s left me feeling particularly lucky for having such a great life in a beautiful city, and a lovely family and bunch of friends to share it with! Birthday celebrations I’m usually more likely to have a quiet celebration of my birthday in Portugal with my family, which I love doing. But this year I ended up staying in London for my birthday and had the best time. The weather was beautiful over the weekend, which was a great start, and a massive bonus! On Friday we hung around at our local work…
