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
