Hello lovelies, it’s time for another post on beautiful Lisbon and my travels to this magnificent city this past April. Strap on your seatbelt and come with me for a (long) photo journey on my second day there. I hope it gives you some ideas on what to do when you visit Lisbon. If you missed my first post about this trip, make sure to check it out here.

I knew it was going to be a very long day of walking the beautiful cobblestone streets. The weather was beautiful but there was an occasional brisk gust of wind that would send chills down your spine. So, better safe than sorry, I opted to wear jeans with an off shoulder top (my current obsession) from Zara. I brought my leather jacket with me as well, but within one hour of walking I no longer needed it. I did have to carry it with me the rest of the day though.

As our AirBnB apartment was in the city centre, walking everywhere was easy. We first visited the ElevadorSanta Justa Elevator situated at the end of Rua de Santa Justa. Elevator was designed by Raul Mesnier de Ponsard, a student of the great iron craftsman Gustave Eiffel (oh you know, just the dude that built the Eiffel Tower!!). Interesting fact is that the elevator was built for transportation purposes (Lisbon is a very hilly city) and if you buy transportation ticket you may ride it for free. Though it was built with a purpose, it has become one of main tourist attractions. It’s one of many outlook points in Lisbon. I’m sharing some pictures of beautiful views below.

Following the visit to the elevator, we walked around even more. We stumbled upon a photographer and not just any kind of photographer. We got to take a photograph the old school way. Remember the first cameras from beginning of 19thcentury? They were called Camera Obscura which uses daguerreotypy photographic process. I did not share this photograph here as it is more of a private photo, but if you are visiting Lisbon and see the man with this type of camera, make sure to stop and take a photo. It takes about 5-10 minutes to develop a picture, but it is so worth it. You will receive a genuine vintage photo.
NOTE: A little interesting fact, the Camera Obscura camera doesn’t take good picture of light colour materials, so it’s good to wear darker colours. But the photographer has some props which you can put on to give your outfit a more vintage vibe.

From there, we started walking the streets towards the castle. Or so I thought. At some point I got lost drawn by beautiful streets and colours, but also by my own curiosity. I have this thing with corners. You know how some people love floors, and so on? Well when I am in new cities and enjoying my surrounding, I am drawn by finding out what is behind the next corner of the street. Sometimes it’s nothing but most time it’s something beautiful and surprising. Though we got lost, it wasn’t hard to find a way back to the castle. Everyone is really happy to help and talk to you.

We stopped for a drink and lunch at Espumantari de Petisco. We enjoyed some great olives, great beer, and great food. Again, octopus salad is a must when visiting Portugal. Saying how beautiful the location and atmosphere were, would just be redundant.

Some more walking and exploring ensued with few more café stops. By the time we reached the castle, the lineup was so long that we decided not to visit it. Yes I know. I could have bought the tickets on line ahead of time, but I chose to be spontaneous and so I was. I figured there was just so much more to explore around the city and standing in line for an hour would be such a waste of time. And it was true.

So when you visit Lisbon pick just a few tourist places that you really want to visit, but I highly suggest getting lost in the streets. I believe it will be such a more profound experience and you will really get to feel the energy of the city.
I would love to hear from you, what your favourite spots in Lisbon were or if Lisbon is on your bucket list.

Ciao!

Joining The 30s Club! Yikes!

Shoes Gucci, Skirt Mendocino, corset Ebay, necklace DIY, clutch gift old, belt Asos, (sold out, similar here), ring and earrings street buy Madrid Well today is my big birthday. I am turning 30! All I have to say is OMG! I know that sounds more like a teenager talking, but I am somewhat speechless. Partially because I don’t feel mature enough for it. Maybe I have this vision that in your thirties you are more serious when it comes to everything including what you wear. Or maybe I am having midlife crisis at 30. Is that possible? I’m kidding of course. It does feel a bit weird but I feel great. Everyone tells me that your thirties are your best years. I guess we will wait and see. I am posting tonight one last outfit from Spain. I obviously can’t shoot the pictures tonight of my birthday outfit, put it on my computer, edit and post and all of this while making it to dinner on time J. So I will post today’s outfit tomorrow and I am leaving you with this, what I think, stunning outfit. As…

Sightseeing Montreal In Hot Pink Sneakers & Ripped Jeans

Jeans & jacket Zara, sneakers Nike, shirt H&M, bag Steve Madden, sunglasses unknown, belt Danier (men's section), chain ring Forever 21, midi ring H&M, forefinger gold rings gifts Day one in Montreal was the cocktail party and then walking the streets of old Montreal at night and testing out different patios and bars. Day two in Montreal, was again walking the beautiful streets of old Montreal and testing out patios, but now in daylight, hehehe. Oh and lets not forget, blog picture taking. I forget how beautiful this city is and am reminded every time I come back. Then, I wonder why I don't come back more often. It is gorgeous, vibrant and people are extremely warm. It has such a European flare, which I often miss, and this is a quick way for me to get that fix once in a while, without having to fly over an ocean. These pictures were snapped around St Denis street as well as around Catherdral Notre-Dame Basilica of Montréal. I was comfortable in my new Nikes for the…

What to do When Travelling Western Serbia (& my Outfits)

If you read my lastpost, you know I had been travelling Western Serbia and as promised, I’m sharing few more photos and things to do here. This region doesn’t have big cities and is best known for it’s nature. Besides visiting Drvengrad, here are few more things you can do here:
1.About a 10-minute walk from Drvengrad which you saw in the last post, you can find one of the oldest moveable railway museums in Europe. You can hope aboard a vintage train from the early 1920s and ride in it through one of the most beautiful region of this country. You will love the experience of being on the train but the scenery will leave you speechless and at peace. Train runs twice a day so make sure to check the schedule first. They even offer logging so you can stay in one of their apartments. There are 3 stray dogs here but they are so docile and welcome you as you come in. Consider them to be your hosts :) Ciro Rail Station Museum
2.Second activity you can do here, and I’m sure you will enjoy thoro…

Over-sized Sleeves, Cozy Zara Sweater & Leather Outfit

Boots Aldo, skirt New Yorker, sweater Zara, bag Chanel, earrings vintage
Gotta love Zara! Gotta love this sweater! It was love at first sight (I know, I know I say that a lot). If you love it too, you should be able to still find it in the store. I love the oversized sleeves in particular. Anyone else crazy about this trend?  My brain is a little fried this week do I won't talk much. Too much to do, too little time before my trip to Boston this weekend. So I am leaving you with this quick post and hope you enjoy the pictures and the outfit.
Ciao!
