Three Little Things #4

Happy Saturday everyone! I’ve never been more excited for a weekend to come around – it was a hectic week at work and all I want is to sit around and do nothing for a little bit…But it has also been a good week and I’m excited to share the highlights with you all! Here we go: Bom dia e bom sábado! Nunca estive tão entusiasmada pela chegada de um fim-de-semana – foi uma semana agitada no trabalho e tudo o que eu quero é ficar sentada sem fazer nada por um bocado…Mas também foi uma boa semana e quero…

February Plans

Hoje levo-vos numa pequena visita a um dos meus locais preferidos em Lisboa, o Palácio da Ajuda. It was D. José I who ordered the building of a palace on top of the Ajuda hill after the Royal Palace near the river was completely destroyed by the 1755 earthquake that pretty much flattened Lisbon.  Foi D.

2017 Plans

Happy New Year everybody! Hope you had a really fun New Year’s Eve and that the new year is starting off well 🙂 Feliz Ano Novo a todos! Espero que tenham passado bem o ano e que 2017 esteja a começar bem 🙂 Today I thought I’d share with you a bit of what I want to do in 2017. Not exactly resolutions because those I tend to do in September, still going by school years rather than actual calendar ones. But sort of a wish list for the year ahead. Hoje pensei partilhar convosco um bocadinho do que quero…
