About my blogging break

IMG_8672Four months…WOW! Yes, I’ve been MIA for a long time now but the truth is I just wasn’t inclined to blog. Don’t get me wrong, I still love it and I did miss it but I just wasn’t inspired (I guess that’s what they call bloggers block, huh?). I had a lot going on and to be totally honest it felt good not to worry about the blog all the time. I stopped looking at my stats (which totally dropped by the way) and decided to take a break from it all.

Lisbon: If I had to pick 5 things to eat

lisbon3This will be the last of my Lisbon series posts (I apologise if it seems like it’s all I’ve been talking about lately but it’s such a nice city! ^.^ ) and it will feature something Portugal is amazing at: food! It will be much shorter than the other two Lisbon posts but it will give you little ideas of what to order/get if you do visit Lisbon anytime soon. In a nutshell, it’s the list of things I have to get every time I go to Portugal (good thing I don’t go very often!). Enjoy my lovelies!

Lisbon: If I had to pick 5 places

part2In my previous post I made a list of my favourite cafes (if you haven’t seen it, check it out here) and now it’s time to share with you my 5 favourite places. It was 10 times harder than choosing the cafes as Lisbon has so many lovely places (like most cities)! So without further ado, welcome to my second post in my “Top things to do in Lisbon” series (if you are new to my blog, this will be composed of three posts: If I could pick 5 Cafes; If I could pick 5 places and If I could pick 5 things to eat). These are my top places my dears:

Lisbon: If I had to pick 5 cafes

cafesfinal As promised here is my first post about my beloved Lisbon *yay*. As I mentioned before this post is not going to be a post with all the touristic places to go to but instead it will focus on some of my favourite spots (although some of them may coincide). During my week in Lisbon the weather was fantastic (although sometimes really cold in the evenings) and I miss it already! As I have an extensive list of things to do in Lisbon, I’ve decided to split it into 3 posts: If I had to pick 5 cafes; If I had to pick 5 places and; If I had to pick 5 things to eat. This post will be about my favourite cafes! Lisbon has a range of different cafes everywhere (going out for a coffee is cultural!) and picking 5 is no easy task but I have made my list – enjoy:

Snapshots: Lisbon version

Happy Tuesday everyone! I hope Monday treated you well (if not, at least it’s over!) and that Tuesday treats you even better. I’ve been promising a post about Lisbon (where to eat & drink, etc.) and I will do that as soon as I’m back in Brighton. I’ll try to include all my favourite spots instead of all the touristy places!  Meanwhile, here’s a little taste of what I’ve been up to these last few days in this gorgeous city.

My packing tips

luggage

First I need to apologize for not posting before this week but it has been manic! I have so many things going on at the moment I’ve had no time for myself! The good thing is I am going to Lisbon tomorrow for a week *happy dance* and cannot wait! Just to make it clear, it is not like it’s my first time there – I lived in Lisbon for almost 10 years and that’s where my parents live. However, as the organizational freak I am, I have to share my packing tips/steps with you. I am not a light traveler (I wish I was) but I still have a few things I follow in order to make packing easier (and to make it all fit in one suitcase!). Here are the steps I take:
