COZY WEEKEND


"No words can explain how the way I am missing you' sings Sam Smith, and these words are for me to you.

Finally we have our little office at our new home and we are back, we are, this time we really mean it but it will be with a new twist so I can have the balance between my beloved job and updating our baby Katefp. Sometimes it feels good to take some time off, to live to the fullest, to work to the fullest, to think in new ideas...when there is so much to live. But other times it feels so good to be back, to share our visual diary with you with a total completely different energy.

 Hope you will enjoy these pictures wearing the coziest look and talk to you later!

BORROWED FROM THE BOYS



Borrowing from the boys can be pretty sexy, don't you think? Who doesn't love a boyfriend shirt, blazer, pocket square...today I was proudly wearing both, a boyfriend's shirt borrowed from the super cool and unique Alfaiate Lisboeta's store - J. Lisbon - and my grandpa's pocket square on my wrist. This pocket square is probably one my lucky charms, everything that I own from my grandpa have the most special feeling attached to it.

The boyfriend shirt can be such a great item to have in our wardrobe, because the fit is loose and to pull it together you just need to play with proportions. Of course that my Boyfriend just had stole this beautifully soft shirt from me to his wardrobe, glad that we share the same closet! So, in case you're thinking about Christmas gifts to your everything (you have to check the amazing sale up to 50% that we're currently having at Farfetch) just offer him a shirt because later you can borrow it from him, think about doubling your clothes options. I bet you are wo(man) enough to wear it yourself! :)

SUNDAZE


Sundaze state of mind: Sunday is probably my favorite day of the week, it is weekend and it is right before monday which means back to work. Luckily I don't feel any kind of nostalgia in relation to mondays, I gotta be thankful because when you love what you do mondays are pretty awe-so-me as Barney from HIMYM would say. I bet you are thinking "you're such a weirdo, mondays are terrible!' but try to see things on a positive note, so, tomorrow wake up with a smile on your face, would you do that for me? :)

This past weekend (and this one too) are my definition of Sundaze, which combine some things I love the most: my man crush everyday, a perfect view and sunsets at the beach... Well, it depends of the weekend of course, being with my family or friends, staying at home watching movies can also make a great Sunday. One thing is for sure, I always try to enjoy Sundays at the maximum, they are suppose to be fun, to relax and recharge batteries for another upcoming week. 

Talking about perfect views, look at this view from The Yeatman Hotel, definitely the best part of staying at it, the view is insanely beautiful. Waking up or falling asleep, swimming at night, having breakfast while watching this view is pure magic

SWEATER WEATHER

 

There's something about a long cashmere sweater that make us feel so cozy... These pictures were taken before heading to work last week, in a 3 minute shoot? 8h30, freezing cold, well, maybe I am exaggerating, only cold, hair tuck in my jacket and off we go. The Macbook in its case is definitely accessorizing the look isn't it? Not really but it's one my must-haves at work and it makes part of my everyday looks ;)

Tomorrow you can expect the rest of our Porto weekend pictures but meanwhile, enjoy this #ootd.

GETAWAY


There are all sorts of getaways - romantic, chic, adventurous... - I guess I like to mix all them up and simply have an amazing escape from the routine. At least one weekend a month we go on a getaway to somewhere else, this one wasn't definitely to far away from our new hometown, Guimarães, it was just a forty-five minutes trip to Porto but even if you're going on a ten minutes journey, just go out and inspire yourself. On the other day I was reading an article on a magazine that was all about the perks of traveling: it estimulastes our brain in a super powerful way, besides our creativity and imagination. So next time you're going to offer a gift to someone else or to yourself, book a trip to some beautiful destination instead of a material gift, it will bring you so much more. "Travel, the only thing you can buy that makes you richer".

Whenever I travel, even if it is on my own country, I always feel more motivated and inspired. Each portuguese city as their own allure, they're unique and Porto must be one of my ultimate favorite portuguese cities. Don't know if you saw the latest Vogue US Editorial in Porto (shot by Mario Testino, amazing Styling by Tonne Goodman and Gigi Hadid modeling. wow!) you must see it. This city is full of enchantments, I always love to go there and pay a visit to 'Majestic Café' or 'Livraria Lello', possible the most beautiful Caffé and Bookstore in the world. Everytime I go to 'Lello' I channel my inner Hermione and I pretend I am on a Harry Potter book (you can tell by my face on the picture below) it's simply magical. 

This past weekend, My Love and I went to The Yeatman Hotel and we had some fabulous time. Now I am also having a few days off to relax, but haven't planned anything, actually I am just being a lazy potato at home, doing all our Christmas décor (can't wait to show you!) and some delicious recipes for dinner. Yup, besides being a Stylist I also have some hidden talent for cuisine, just kidding, I let that to Fernando, he's the Chef at home. My only talent and passion is Fashion! Guess that next year on my vacations I will do something big, we are thinking about a road trip through the Amalfi coast? Friends of mine say we have to go and I don't need more arguments to convince me, guess that we have to. On Thursday I will be back at my beloved work with tons of new energy, but meanwhile I guess I will update our baby Katefp everyday. You'll be spoiled! Sending you all my love, talk to you soon x x
