    NOT LIKE A TOURIST – RED AND BLACK

    ÓBIDOS Another unique location I have visited during my stay in Portugal: The preserved medieval village of Óbidos, 80 km north of Lisbon is one of Portugal’s most interesting and picturesque walled towns with narrow lanes, museums, lovely restaurants and arts & craft shops. Don’t miss the local Ginja de Óbidos, a very tasty cherry liqueur served in tiny chocolate cups! I strongly recommend staying at the gorgeous Pousada Castelo de Óbidos – the historical castle transformed into a hotel. It…

    BLACK IS BACK AGAIN

    BLACK IS BACK AGAIN Ready for going out to a wine tasting event on the countryside of Portugal where we spent a fabulous time at Quinta da Santa Cruz, a lovely family owned rural retreat with a fantastic view over the Rio Douro. We started with half dry white Porto as an aperitif, followed by two white and two red Douro wines and finished with an old vintage Porto which is the highest quality level. Interesting to know that all…

    GOLD MEETS BEIGE

    After some more colourful, floral and black & white themes, I am going for a different style today.  I love this feminine wrap dress – its lovely cleavage, comfortable 3/4 sleeves and the silky stretch material make it even better. To enhance the elegant look I added some golden jewellery and for a bit of a contrast my new metallic band clutch from MANGO.  Drum roll please!
