Wedding photoshoot with Nimagens

My wedding post on the blog is coming very soon, but before that, I had to share our beautiful wedding photoshoot with Nimagens.

André and I had the idea of recreating our first date, three years ago, but this time dressed as bride and groom.

I wore my mom’s wedding dress with almost 29 years old (you can read more about this on the coming wedding post) and André wore his wedding suit, and along with Nicole, we walked around Lisbon with a camera on her hand and a lot of ideas on our minds.

Saldanha was where we first met and where our photoshoot started. The weather was great, just like when we met so it brought a lot of good memories.

We then took the metro, as you can see by the beautiful photos we got to take inside. We ended up at Terreiro do Paço and Cais das Colunas where I would always take the boat back home and where our first date ended.

As an extra, we took a few photos at Cais do Sodré where we later met several times while dating. 

This experience was amazing in so many different ways. We had the chance to live our first date once again and compare it to how much things changed and evolved. Who knew we would move to England and get married! It was also great to see so many people in the street wishing us all the best in our future together, especially kids.

I want to thank Nicole for my favourite photoshoot so far. It’s great to be able to follow her work and be a part of it.

Minimal jewellery|jewellerybox

I like my gifts to have a meaning and a long lifetime. Something that people can use and think of you every time they do. And I think jewellery is one of those things that will stay forever with a meaning.

Gifting season is coming and I think there’s no better time to share a few suggestions for the ones that find it hard to give the perfect gift to their loved ones.

My favourite style of jewellery is the most minimal one, something subtle but beautiful. I’ve recently found out about jewellerybox collections and I haven’t only ordered a few amazing pieces as you can see on the photos, but I’ve also decided they will be on my gifts list for this year and I’m sure a lot of friends and family members will be grateful for that.

jewellerybox is an online jewellery retailer based in South London, even though they sell in over 100 countries worldwide. They have over 10,000 unique pieces of sterling silver & 9ct gold jewellery with gorgeous designs.

Colder Days Ahead|BUFF Wear

If you’re in England or any other country where you can already feel the low temperatures, especially in the evening and very early in the morning, then this post is perfect for you.


Don’t get me wrong, I love summer, the beach, tanned skin, late sunsets, etc. (Remember, I’m from Portugal) But the truth is, I love to go back to warmer outfits and all that Hygge feeling at home during these colder days.


Since I became a minimalist, I stopped going shopping for an entire clothing winter collection as soon as I feel the temperatures going down. Instead, I started investing in a few but very good quality pieces. Clothes that don’t go out of fashion, that are minimal in terms of design, still elegant and stylish, but especially, clothes that are practical and that I can use on a daily basis. No more outfits for specific occasions. That’s long gone!


I’ve recently found the brand Buff Wear that has very stylish neckwear and headwear pieces like the one I’m wearing on the photos. These are manufactured with very advanced technologies that ensure comfort and protection. And talking about being practical and adaptable, we can wear it on any occasion, whether is an outdoor activity or for a casual dinner out.
