Cycling Shorts
Cycling shorts...  Love them or hate them? 

Major Spring trend, and I personally love them!  They are making a comeback from the 90's when my mum and Princess Diana rocked the cycling shorts look.  Comfortable, versatile and this season's "cool-girl" staple.

Perfect for those slightly warmer days, this tomboy style can be worn in so many different ways.  I personally will wear mine with a baggy t-shirt, jumper or shirt.  I like to stick with my theory of tight on the bottom half and baggy on the top... or vice versa!

So Portugal in January was ... calm, bright blue skies and warm temperatures, a great start to the new year! We visited Lagos one of my favourite towns – wandered round some shops, stopped for a bite to eat and then onto Ponta de Piedade.

As it was so warm I could wear a dress and feel the sun on my legs – always important to keep the vitamin levels up! Easy, metallic gold pumps that are essential for exploring and walking but with a hint of sparkle. And my hair in space buns, a really simple but effective hairstyle using a few hairbands and pins.

Enjoy my day capturing the heart of Lagos…

BOM DIA LISBOA!

Visting Lisbon from the Algarve could not be easier.   Train tickets are available online at CP and 3 hours later...you are in Portugal's hilly, historic, coastal capital.  For a European city, accommodation for Lisbon is great value for money.  We booked an apartment right in the heart of Bairro Alto, which was perfect for a short city break.

Down past Elevador da Bica, past Pink Street and along to the iconic square of Praça do Comércio, we caught the tram to Belém. A "must-do" when visiting, the tram is relaxing, offers great views and saves your legs!  Belém tower (Torre de Belém) a UNESCO World Heritage Site was somewhere I particularly wanted to visit, as I didn't get chance on my last trip.   Recommended by my friends, you have to visit Pastéis de Belém!!  Founded in 1837, they bake the traditional pastel de nata from a secret recipe.   I can tell you...they are amazing!!   Hot, with cinnamon, they taste like no other pastel de nata!!

Check out my next post... day 2 in Lisboa.

A day in paradise...

The Ria Formosa islands trip - another ticked off my bucket list!  Hop aboard a luxury catamaran from Cais Portas do Mar in old town Faro.  Cruise out through the lagoon, where you can spot the local wildlife.  Visit the 4 different islands of Armona, Culatra, Farol and Deserta.

Clear waters, secluded beaches and fish around your feet, it felt like the caribbean islands.  Tickets can be purchased here at Viator.

I want to visit again!
