December Plans

December has to be my favourite month of the year. With Christmas decorations, parties and trips and not needing excuses to watch my favourite films (Home Alone 2 and The Sound of Music) whenever I want – it’s just a perfect month! This year there’s a lot of exciting stuff happening, so here’s a peek. Dezembro é um dos meus meses preferidos do ano. 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…

Brunch at Bronte (aka the prettiest restaurant in London!)

On Friday night I booked a table online, and Saturday morning there I was, ready to take photos and try some delicious food! Na semana passada estava a ler o blog da Olivia e vi o post de sonho que ela escreveu sobre os mais bonitos sítios para tomar brunch em Londres. Assim que li que o Bronte tinha sido…

Enter the Chocolate Chip Cookies! Tenho adorado o livro New York Cult Recipes de…

Cinnamon Rolls

I mentioned in my October Plans post that I wanted to do some more baking, as it’s something I really enjoy during Autumn.  Como disse no meu post October Plans, quero começar a fazer mais bolos, uma das minhas actividades preferidas no Outuno. Rather than making a recipe I already knew, I was searching for something new. And then, with perfect timing, Daphné published a post about her Autumnal picnic with her friends and I had a revelation: I needed to make the Cinnamon Rolls she had made, based on Marc Grossman’s book ‘New York Cult Recipes’! Em vez de…

October favourites

October has been such a fun month, full of good discoveries and fun moments! Here is a summary of what stood out for me. Outubro tem sido um mês bem divertido, cheio de boas descobertas e momentos divertidos! Aqui fica um resumo do que se destacou para mim. Family My two London based cousins (M & T) and I met up for dinner near the middle of the month. It was so much fun to have a girlie dinner with them, just chatting about exciting things we have going on in our lives. Not that it needed reminding, of course,…
