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!

Ponta de Piedade...

My new favourite place in the Algarve!  Hidden, unspoilt views with the most amazing rock formations and secret caves. 

Definitely a "must-see" and an Instagram picture perfect location.  I really love exploring new places, wandering and capturing great shots with my camera.

Outfit for the day was my new Pull & Bear mini combined with a classic white Mango top.  Always trending, Gingham is a summertime check available to everyone.  Shoes, jackets, accessories, pink, blue or black, whatever takes your fancy.

Check out my photo's of the incredible steps built into the cliff face... and yes I did walk to the bottom and back up!

Lisbon Life...

 

One city I have always wanted to visit, and I already want to go back!  Trams, hilly, cobbled streets, old pastel-coloured buildings.  A beautiful Portuguese city in 30'c temperatures in October, I spent 3 days exploring.  

 

Easy to travel around either on the metro, by tram or by foot, there were so many places of interest.  Praça do Comércio, Rossio Square, Lisbon Zoo, Lisbon Oceanarium, Elevador da Glória were just some of my favourite attractions.  

 

Staying in the heart of the Lisbon, Bairro Alto Suites was perfect for our stay.  A recently renovated XV century building, with patisserie's nearby and within walking distance to everything.



Just do not forget to buy a pastel de nata!!

Pom Poms
Some like it cool ...

35'c + ... it has been a scorcher here the last few weeks!  Classic topknot, glowing skin, and blondie hair... I have now been living here for 5 months can you believe?!

Feeling like a true Portuguese, I purchased this beautiful boutique beach cover-up. Tassels, colourful pom poms and frilly details....easy peasy to throw on for the beach.  With so many boutiques around the Algarve I love to venture out of normal buying trends.  As much as I love my brands I always like to be different and support smaller shops and cultures.

More of the Portuguese trends coming soon with a swimwear blog upcoming... x

NoSoloÁgua Club

Cocktails, palm trees, Djs and pool beds....welcome to NoSoloÁgua Club in Praia de Rocha marina!

 

With a friend visiting from England for a week I managed to take a couple of days of work to enjoy and pretend I was on holiday too!  A few friends had recommended this beach club to us, and it definitely made for a great afternoon.

 

Situated right on the Praia de Rocha marina, there was a fun but relaxed vibe.  Ideal to spend the day around the pool and have some lunch in their restaurant.  Otherwise turn up later for there sunset parties!



Definitely worth a visit!
