A Princess in Óbidos – Portugal

Óbidos is located about 15 minutes from Peniche, and is one of the most beautiful castles in the area.  Walking the streets and castle walls, any girl will feel like a princess!  Could you imagine if you were one of the 3,000 people living in Óbidos? How many could say they live in a castle? Oh the dreams I have! With it’s well-preserved medieval architecture & cobble stone streets Óbidos is a hot tourist destination.

Lisboa – Baxia-Chiado & Belem

The past few weeks I was in Portugal, mainly in Peniche but I did do some traveling to surrounding areas.  This obviously wasn’t my first time there. I have been going to Portugal since I was a little girl, as my family is from there, and I was living there for the past 2 years.  Lisbon is one of my favorite cities in Portugal. Belem is where you’ll get the best Pastries in the WORLD! Made fresh and handed to you warm there is no holding back when it comes to ordering a dozen and eating just about all of them!

Up and away – Vacation starts soon!

As most of you know I am heading to Peniche, Portugal for a few weeks.  Peniche is a small surf/fishing town just north of Lisbon. It is probably one of the prettiest places I’ve been to because of it’s cute historic, small town charm, and beautiful sandy beaches. Peniche cannot compare to any other beach town I have been to in awhile! Mind you it is also my home away from home! Spending a couple of years living there, I grew to love it, and it will always have a special place in my heart! I always like my traveling outfits to be comfortable, there is nothing worse than sitting on a plane for 7 hours in uncomfortable clothing! I’ve decided to wear my cute…

Packed Up For Portugal

I’ll be leaving Toronto and heading to Portugal soon! How exciting! I am packing so much I just know it, but why not? I am there for almost 3 weeks!  I have packed some of my favorite items, like my DIY denim frayed vest, sequin blazer (with added shoulder pads), my bright/bold print maxi dresses, cute tops, shorts, and of course my Ted Baker pumps! Must leave some room for any shopping I do over there!  As for accessories, I cannot leave home without my Michael Kors watch , or any of my clutches, like the white leather neon piping BCBG messenger/oversized clutch, or my raffia Aldo striped clutch.
