This song was on the TV whilst I was writing, hence the title… Easy Like Sunday Morning…. la de da… sorry….it’s stuck in my head now! We had some close friends stay with us over the weekend and we just had a really enjoyable chilled out couple of days. I cooked dinner on Friday night and hubby cooked Saturday night and then both nights we watched In The Heart of the Sea with Chris Hemsworth (the first half Friday and… Read more »

I think black skinny jeans go with absolutely everything, especially this pretty floral tee. Read on to find out where I wore it… Last week we went out to a local restaurant, Solar do Farelo, with friends. Considering it’s so local, I’d never actually been before. But it’s very popular with the folk that live around here, especially other foreigners. I must say, I was very impressed. We had such a delicious meal that I’m looking forward to going back… Read more »

Feeling under the weather

I’m feeling under the weather at the moment because I’m suffering with a horrid head cold. Hubby very kindly gave it to me. It all started last weekend when these photos were taken. If you look close enough, you may notice my very puffy eyes (luckily Luna, above, was on hand to give me a cuddle). Okay I admit that on Saturday I really was feeling under the weather with a little bit of a hangover but the cold was well on… Read more »

A night in Lisbon

Last weekend we spent a night in Lisbon. We’d been invited to a friend’s place for a birthday party which was great fun. It was also the perfect opportunity to practise my Portuguese, considering most party-goers weren’t English speaking. I know, I know what you’re thinking. I’ve lived here 31 years, why does she need to practise her Portuguese? The thing is, I rarely get to speak the language. Sounds completely insane, right? Most of our close friends are foreigners… Read more »

Everyday outfit

  This is one of my favourite looks for day to day wear. Yes, it’s nothing more than a simple everyday outfit that I wear pretty much all the time. Skinny jeans, sneakers, tee-shirt, cardigan and a cross-body handbag. It’s comfortable and best of all: super easy to wear.   Everyday outfit: jeans You’ve seen everything I’m wearing on the blog before. The Levi’s have been featured numerous times before because they are undoubtedly my favourite pair of jeans –… Read more »

Not only was yesterday a windy and chilly day, but I was also suffering from a horrible head cold (courtesy of hubby) but still we headed out and tried to get some decent pictures. As you can see, we mostly failed (!) but I wanted to show you my new loafers, fishnets and a cute embellished top anyway. Loafers The navy loafers were bought from Massimo Dutti in the January sales and they are very cool (if I don’t say… Read more »

I was reading a blog post the other day about signature style that got me thinking about what mine is. The first thing that popped into my head was jeans. I wear jeans, like, ALL THE TIME. Even when I decide I’m going to be more girly and wear more dresses, it lasts about two days and the third day I’m back in my jeans again. I just can’t help it. So I started thinking about dresses with jeans: in one… Read more »

One of my absolute favourite looks is a simple white tee paired with jeans, a leather jacket, heels and a statement necklace. It’s such an easy outfit and a fabulous look every woman can wear. Replace the heels for converse and change up the necklace and you’ve got a great day time look too. I just love the simplicity of it! I bought this jacket from Massimo Dutti last winter – it’s actually got a luxurious detachable fur collar which I don’t often wear because… Read more »

As you probably already know, I LOVE Massimo Dutti and was therefore overjoyed to have found this gorgeous burnt orange silk blouse in their sale for less then €20. What a total bargain! Although it looks a little shiny in this image, there was just too much sun, making it appear glossier than it is. Although the blouse is super long, I think it also looks good tucked into a pair of jeans or could easily be worn loose with leggings, perhaps. I teamed it with… Read more »
