My best friend, Filipa, and I are foodies. We’re also broke young adults so we can’t go out to eat as much as we’d like. But every once in a while we make time and save some cash to go on an eating spree. We like to try new places as much as we can.
Today we went to Magnolia Caffé for brunch because it was recommended to us. Now just so you understand how much we ate, let me tell you… it’s 9 pm and I’m still not hungry. Yeah.
Honestly the food wasn’t super amazing. I mean, those muffins were the bomb, but some of the other foods didn’t make me go wow. But it’s cheap, and a buffet, so we definitely weren’t complaining. The place itself has a nice feel to it, super relaxed but not especially cosy. There were families, and also big groups of friends. We spent two and a half hours eating and talking (we are talkers, especially when it’s just the two of us).
It was a good sunday morning, but I still haven’t found my go-to brunch place in Lisbon!
It’s been a while since I’ve updated, I know. Life has been happening.
I didn’t want this blog to become an obligation so I kinda stopped for a while because I genuinely didn’t feel like being online that much. And y’know, life isn’t always so interesting, some weeks just go by without amazing stuff happening… and that’s ok. Some weeks I don’t always want to carry my camera with me (unless I have work or whatever) and I just want to enjoy time with my friends and family without “documenting” what’s going on.
So no. I won’t post everyday. Sometimes I will post once a week. Whenever I have something I feel I have to say/write, I’ll be here. I hope that’s ok.
I also want to make this a little more personal. I hope that’s ok too.
I also hope your year started well. I have a feeling 2012 will be a somewhat crazy year around here, but I’m SO ready for it.
Today I had breakfast with my girls so we could be together one last time before our friend Maria moves to London. Almost all my (best) friends are moving/have already moved abroad so it’s tough watching them leave. Not much longer till it’s my turn though, if things go well.
I hate goodbyes so I usually just say “See you soon!” because it sounds much better.
Sorry I haven’t been posting much lately. Life gets in the way sometimes.
I’m now job hunting which is sooo much fun as you all know. I love photography but right now I find myself wanting a steadier job. Unfortunately, being a freelance artist makes it hard(er) to pay the bills. It’s ok though, I like trying new things and hey, maybe I’ll fall in love with something different (don’t worry, I will NEVER stop taking photos). It’s all about the experience, right?
I promise I’ll have brand new photos and (hopefully good!) news soon. Wish me luck!
Happy St. Martin’s day!
I’m not religious, I’m just in it for the chestnuts I admit.
Exactly one year ago, on November 2nd 2010, I got on a plane by myself and went to New York City for the first time.
It was an amazing trip, for various reasons. I saw so many places that I had only seen on movies and tv, ate AMAZING food (a lot of it), met some nice people, and was basically overwhelmed 24/7.
I went back two more times after that November trip and every time the city amazes me.
Here are some photos I took on that first trip, I hope you like them!
So, six months ago my best friend got married and I had the privilege of being the wedding photographer. I gotta tell ya, it was the most fun I’ve ever had while at work! haha I wasn’t stressed at all. It was a small but classy affair and we had tons of fun.
Congrats to Filipa and Paulo, here’s to maaaany more months!
Below are some of the photos I took. I hope you like them, because I sure do!
Last Friday my best friend and I had a girls day out. Well, more like a girls afternoon out but we’ll take what we can get. We aren’t together as much as we’d like these days but such is life.
We had a delicious lunch (we’re both foodies and love to try new foods) at a restaurant in Lisbon called Fábulas. Unfortunately I didn’t take pics of the food because it was just too dark. But anyway, it’s a great place to hang out for a few hours, talking to a friend. And the food was amazing!
After lunch we just hung out and talked non stop. You know you really like being with someone when, no matter how many times you’re together, there’s always something to talk about, and it’s never boring.
