Hello everybody, long time no see! So if you follow me on Social Media, you would know that I came back from a 10-day trip to Croatia a few weeks ago. And what a trip it was!! Croatia has been on my list of places to go for a while now, mostly because of Game of Thrones, but also because I’d heard amazing things about it. So after I promised myself last year that I would visit this year, I finally booked my flights in January. My friend (and travel partner) and I decided we’d like to visit a few […]
I’ve always been very environmentally conscious and I can very passionate about it. I’m not in any way an activist but I have strong beliefs that we are harming our planet and that we need to stop it and do more than we are currently doing. Don’t get me wrong, I know I’m part of the problem and I know I don’t do everything I can to be more environmentally friendly. But in a highly globalised world, I feel like it’s becoming harder for the little guys like you and me to make BIG differences – unless we’re all together […]
Every year before my birthday I reflect back on what I have done the year before and what lessons I have learnt. In this article I explore the main lessons I have learnt last year and what take-aways I took from them.
I’m pretty sure all of you have heard of “The Secret”. And most of you have probably read it too. If you haven’t, then have a look at it here. I started reading it at the beginning of the year and I just loved it. I don’t believe in religion or anything, but I truly believe things happen for a reason and the universe has got a great impact on our lives. I.e, when stars are aligning good things happens to you, in the same way that bad stuff all happen at once.
After my little rebrand, I thought I’d do a little post for you to get to know me a little bit better. I’ve been blogging for a while and I know I don’t share much about me on Instagram or here, that’s why sometimes I think the engagement is not as good as I hoped. So in order to fix that, I’ve decided to do a little “What you should know about me”. So here it goes!
Guess who’s back? Back again. (Alexa is back, tell a friend). This always reminds me of Eminem so obviously I had to do it. Yes, girls and boys, I am back to the blogging world after a 3-month break and finally managed to sort out my blog along with a little rebrand.
So today I turn 28. Happy Birthday to me! I’m not massively happy about turning 28 (it’s just one step closer to the big 3 0), but I’m excited to celebrate and what will come ahead. In my previous post I talked about how I had a little bit of a hard time in February and how I’ve turned all that into opportunities. And guess what? This week was the best one I’ve had in probably the whole of last year! Things took a massive turn and a lot of good things happened to me. Everyday I went to bed […]
I’m not gonna lie. February was quite a crap month. For some reason, February is never a really good month for me. I don’t know what it is, but I seem to feel down and things tend to go wrong that month. This one was no exception.
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.
We’re almost onto the 5th week of the year already, however it seems like the longest month ever! But even though it seems like it’s been January for ages, this was probably the best January I’ve had in a while. If you follow me on Instagram (if you don’t, you should!), you’ll know I’ve been to Paris last week!
