Burgers & Booze| Dog Town Burger

The good weather in Lisbon wasn’t here to stay. It made a short appearance, two weeks to be exact, and now we’re back finding nice places where we can eat and chill indoors.

Last week we went to Dog Town Burger for the first time. It was raining, of course, but it didn’t stop us from going to Bairro Alto, a Lisbon district very well-known for its bars and nightlife.

Dog Town Burger is a restaurant and bar with a very cool concept that reflects the surf, skate and urban’s culture. With a relaxing vibe and a good playlist, this can be the perfect place to spend an evening with friends. But here comes the important part: Food.

While we indulged in our delicious burgers, a Tony Alva and a Stacy Peralta, we drank one of the best natural juices ever! (Orange juice and Berries & Mango juice).

I’m not vegetarian, but I do love vegetarian food and I can’t wait to try the green side of Dog Town Burger’s menu, which is quite expensive comparing to other burger restaurants.

I don’t know if this chocolate brownie as a dessert is a technique to make us come back for more, but it totally worked because it was excellent!

My 24th Birthday

Celebrating your birthday can be one of the most stressing plans you’ll have to do during the year. Unless you’re a boring person and don’t celebrate it at all, then you should definitely go read another post.

I’m the type of person that starts planning my birthday party the moment I finish my latest birthday party, if you know what I mean! And celebrate it the entire weekend. I started with a family dinner with a wonderful view of the “Tejo” river. The restaurant was called “Amarra Ò Tejo“.

This year I decided reunite my friends, the ones I haven’t had the opportunity to be with for photo IMG_7093_zpsrrjb8lbp.jpg 3 years. That was my first reason to make it big, the second one was, you only have 24 years old once in your life.

I spent the afternoon in Lisbon and I had the opportunity to  be one of the first clients of the hair salon Pirez De Campus since it opened last week. Catarina found a way to tame my wild hair in an elegant hairstyle that lasted all night and even the following day. Andreia was responsible for my make up and taught me some tips to make it last longer and what to do on a day to day basis. (Their details are at the bottom of the post).

I planned my birthday dinner at Portofino Restaurant in Sesimbra, near the sea. Although it’s winter in Portugal and the cold doesn’t feel like leaving us, I decided to wear a very summerish dress. The food was deliciously as usual and I want to thank the team for everything. Especially for letting me send a sky lantern and make a wish.

Alfa Romeo Giulietta

I got to drive the eye-catching Alfa Romeo Giulietta for the past week and nothing can replace my beloved Fiat 500, but I have to give other cars a chance. I decided to take the city car to the country side.

With a very stylish design and a host of different colour choices, yes, I still drove the white one, Giulietta is a very attractive and economical car. It has an average boot capacity, which would work perfectly for me.

The “Uconnect” multimedia system allows you to listen to the songs on your phone via bluetooth and also make and receive calls without having to take your eyes off the road.

Although, the driver’s seat space is a bit claustrophobic, even for me!

Luzzo| Pizza with capital letter

Because food is the answer to everything and because it was almost 3pm and I still haven’t had anything to eat (journalist’s life), I felt like I deserved a pizza. Not any pizza, the closest to an italian pizza.

 photo IMG_4333_zpsk4aztdiq.jpg        photo IMG_4346_zpsbgfueyjx.jpg photo IMG_4332_zpsp2xppqob.jpg       photo IMG_4349_zps2jttcje8.jpg

So my journalist friends and I went to Luzzo pizzeria, after a tough morning of work. It was raining quite a lot and we got lost while searching for the restaurant. In my defense, it was Siri’s fault.

When we finally arrived to the pizzeria, it was completely full and we had to wait for a table. It’s time that I start getting blogger’s treatment, people! But anywho, at Luzzo, you should always book a table in advance!

The lady receiving us at the door wasn’t very nice, maybe because of all the stress, but visiting a restaurant when it’s completely full is the best way to see if there’s good service!

Even though, the food was totally worth the wait! We got to choose our pizzas on a tablet and the waiters were extremely nice. They even offered themselves to pose for a photograph!

Giveaway| Rubi Nail Polish

This year, apart from the new section of car reviews, I decided to start doing giveaways with products that I bought or were offered to me during my travelling. If you don’t know the brand Rubi, here is the opportunity to do it! I used to buy their nail polishes in South Africa, because they last for a week without cracking.

You can buy this nail polish at Cotton On or you can participate in my giveaway and get this green Rubi Nail Enamel polish.
