lisbon

Where has this pretty little city been hiding and how did it never cross my mind to experience lush lisbon life sooner? But before i uncover all the magic of my portuguese adventure, i’d like to share a wonderful quote, which i came across earlier this week… let’s just call it a little prologue to …

my dutch daydream

Beautiful Amsterdam… *sigh* I wanted to share some lovely little moments i’ve captured from my dutch daydream over the past few months, this time in pictures. For such a small city, the infinite glimpses of inspiration and endless potential to discover them never fails to amaze me. This charming city – its quirkiness, its magnificence, … Continue reading my dutch daydream

vintage vogue

“The best cover is always the next one, the one you haven’t seen yet.” Anna Wintour Drifting in and out of Amsterdam’s cute & copious little concept stores and finding little sources of inspiration along the way is one of my favourite things to do on a dreamy saturday afternoon.

Shortly after my buoyant post, so full of optimism and promise, well, this happened… Awkward. I waited almost six years to finally bite the bullet and make a … Continue reading la night mer

Although the sheet of dense, white clouds drifting above me right now might suggest otherwise, i can already feel the glistening sun’s eagerness to blast through, brilliantly and defiantly. Yes, i think we can safely say that those dark and dreary winter months are behind us and spring is finally here. Thank … Continue reading a few of my favourite things

coffee & coconuts

How i even contained myself when i came across this trendy little hotspot, i’ll never know. For starters, it’s named after two of my very favourite things in life (who doesn’t love coffee and coconuts?!) Yep, even the very name of this gem-of-a-place seduced me with its appetizing alliteration and enticing evocation of all things tropical and caffeinated. Thankfully, it … Continue reading coffee & coconuts
