Best of 2016

Good morning guys and happy last day of 2016! Today I want to share with you the highlights of the year. Overall the year has been pretty rubbish, but I was lucky to have some very memorable moments and thought it would be a good idea to end the year on a grateful note. Bom dia a todos e bom último dia de 2016! Hoje quero partilhar convosco os melhores momentos do ano.

Hygge your life

Over the past few months the Danish concept of Hygge (pronounced ‘hoo-ga’) has been popping up a lot, both online and in bookshops (I can think of three different recently published books on this subject). Nos últimos meses o conceito dinamarquês de Hygge (que se diz ‘hu-ga’) têm surgido muito, tanto online como em livrarias (lembro-me de pelo menos três livros recentemente publicados sobre este assunto). Since I’ve been loving all things Danish, especially after visiting and falling in love with Copenhagen in August, I was very intrigued.

December Plans

December has to be my favourite month of the year.

Com decorações de Natal, festas e viagens e o não precisar de desculpas para ver os meus filmes preferidos (Sozinho em Casa 2 e Música no Coração) quando quiser – é um mês perfeito! Este ano…

November Favourites

I mean, I had great moments, but overall it’s been a very disappointing month what with the US election and the not knowing what is happening with the world. Não sei quanto a vocês, mas eu cá estou ansiosa por ver Novembro de 2016 pelas costas. Quer dizer, tive bons momentos, mas no geral foi um mês de desilusões, com as eleições dos EUA e o não saber o que raio se passa com o mundo. Despite that though, the good…

Henley on Thames

Every now and again, my cousins and I meet up to spend a day together, have lunch, and catch up with each other. It’s brilliant! This time, we went to Henley-on-Thames for the day. De vez em quando, eu e as minhas primas e primos encontramo-nos para passar um dia juntos, almoçar e por a conversa em dia. É excelente! Desta vez, fomos a Henley-on-Thames passar o dia. My cousins all met up in Shiplake and walked along the Thames Path. As I have been suffering with a back injury, I went directly to Henley and spent some time exploring…
