Reggio Emilia

These are some of the photos i took in Reggio Emilia last month when i visited Italy. Such a beautiful and peaceful city, perfect for some relaxing days resting from our car trip around the north of Italy.

What does an engineer offers to his girlfriend as a present?  A Concrete Necklace!

So this was the gift i received last night from my boyfriend, a concrete necklace in a mini laser cutted box made out of recycled paper. I had a little too much drinking so i didn't pay much attention to it then, but now i don't know whether it's absolutely hilarious or incredibly romantic!?  ;D
The necklace is so unexpected and different from everything i've seen that i'm loving it more by the minute.
It was created by a Portuguese jewelry designer, Pedro Sequeira, in his studio at Palácio das Artes here in Porto.

Remember me not to ask him for an engagement ring with a 'nice stone' or i might end up with a big pebble on my finger! ;)

Small Details

After another morning and afternoon studying for exams i refused to take another look at my books and went for a walk with my boyfriend in the gardens of Palácio de Cristal (Cristal Palace in english), who claimed to have a surprise for me at night. We had dinner at a local cosy restaurant and then he took me to an amazing jazz concert, wich i wasn't expecting to be so incredibly good. I just loved the band, called 'Quarteto Vintage', they were celebrating their 10th anniversary playing together. You can have a sneak peek of the concert here. I hope you enjoy the photos i took of some outfit details. kisses *

Lago di Garda

These are the photos i took in one of the most beautiful and peaceful places i've ever been: Lago di Garda
It's unique landscape of little sailboats drifting in crystalline water surrounded by mountains is breathtaking!  I fell so deeply in love with the place that i made my boyfriend promise me that we would spend our next summer vacations there. I hope you all get the chance to go there someday... we should all have that magnificent view in our memories. *

In the mood to...

Today, i'm in the mood to Relax.
A simple cup of  royal mint tea, a heartwarming conversation with him and a long calming bath is all it takes to fulfill my desires and soothe my senses this afternoon.

Passing afternoon - Iron & Wine

Rainy days

Please someone make this annoying rain stop, we don't mind with cold days, but the combination: "rain + wind" is just too much!! Another week like this and Portugal will be an international pool.
Summer, where are you?  :(

Sweet cotton world

Yesterday afternoon i had the chance of visiting my boyfriend's mother office.
She's the founder of Just All Design ® a business related with clothing and brands creation wich works mainly with baby clothing brands but has also collaborated with Zara, Pull and Bear, Red Oak, among others.
The office is so well decorated that i'll photograph it better next time because it really is worth sharing. So, while my boyfriend was studying and printing some documents, i started searching for some fabric samples to a DIY project i wanted to try.  I must say i found the most adorable fabrics, between dots and stripes, pastel colors and floral prints, i discovered these faux-fur samples that i immediately fell in love with. I'm dying to start the project so i can share with you the results.   ;)
