One of my favourite days of the year is definitely Shrove Tuesday. In Portugal, we celebrate it big. Normally we all fancy dress and go out partying. Torres Vedras is the place to be, and I have some good memories of spending Carnaval there. I’d share a few photos with you but last time I went was about 6/7 years ago, and unfortunately lost all those photos.
It’s only 9 sleeps until Christmas!! (And 5 until I go home!!) And I can’t freaking wait. It has always been one of my favourite seasons of the year. I mean what’s not to love? You spend the whole time eating, drinking, watching films and have family time. But eating, mostly.
Hey guys! First of all, I wanted to apologise for my lack of posts. Not that I have many people reading this but anyway. Since my last post, I had a busy couple of weeks and very good news!

I have realised that age is just a number and the age you are, doesn’t mean is the age you feel. I still feel like I’m 23 and will probably keep telling people I’m 23, though I can easily pass by 21.Perks of being African descendent.
Hi guys! It’s almost February but hey, Happy New Year! With me, every year is the same story. I have all these ideas of things I want to do, but then at the end I’ve accomplished maybe a 1/3. And one of them is always related to blogging. This time I am really committed and I am really going to make some extra time for it. If I have time for Netflix, I have time for this! (see, commitment!) So first of all, Hello. My name is Paula, but you can call me Alexa, from Alexandra which is my second […]
