I love layering! It allows you to mix up fabrics, prints and at the same time keeps you warm yet classy! I decided to pass the morning wandering through the streets of Obidos, which I have been going to almost everyday this week! It’s beautiful in there that I couldn’t resist taking some shots! – Stay Classy Loves!
One of the things that I miss is Peniche’s nightlife, knowing you can go to a coffee shop or bar and have people around you is a great! My favorite place is Java House!
Located in the bustling bar/restaurant district off the Marina in the beautiful coastal town of Peniche, Java House is a unique coffee bar & lounge which exudes comfort. A wood-floor living room atmosphere, furnished with sofas and chairs, and an exposed stone wall which adds a touch of warmth to the room. An intimate, cozy place to pass your morning or afternoon sipping on tasty java drinks. Offering a wide selection of coffees and teas, as well as specialty smoothies, frappes, crepes, and sandwiches made to order. Fresh bread and pastries are delivered daily! Enjoy a casual atmosphere with free WiFi available both indoors and on our spacious outdoor patio. After the sun goes down Java House is low-lit and lively. Choose from a wide selection of cocktails and liquors or local classics such as Porto or Ginja. The crowd are buzzing and the music is spot on with an array of lounge and classic tunes…not just the bland usual suspects.
Another favorite is Tres As located beside Java House. This multi-level pub style bar has great character! Drink a cold beer and take a look at all the nicknacks on the wall! They represent Peniche’s cute fishing town charm!
There are plenty of other places in Peniche to visit, but these 2 are always on the top of my list! When I’m in Peniche you know where to find me
Unpacking has really become a chore, I always ask myself why I pack so much to go away on holidays, it must be my fear of forgetting something! Oh wait…I did forget something – my camera charger, so for my entire trip I had to rely only on others and my iPhone 4! Thankfully it takes decent pictures! I hope that I’m not the ONLY one who over packs, but some how I feel as though I am! Anyone else in my shoes?
I am slowly starting to unpack, sort laundry, and remember the good times I had while I was there. I found a few favorites that I thought would be exciting to share! When I was in Portugal, a good friend of mine, Raquel, gave me a cute tea light holder of Peniche, which has various famous attractions painted on. It is just so adorable and brings back memories of times I’ve had there! I also recently purchased a McQueen skull scarf which turned out to be quite useful during some of the nippy nights I had.
Since I am such a procrastinator, I have resorted to sitting in my comfy slipper chair, eating Godiva chocolate out of a Tiffany box, while reading Kelly Cutrone’s book If You Have to Cry, Go Outside What a great read! It has inspired me to break away from the negativity and embrace the positivity – in other words to follow my heart and my dreams!
Óbidos is located about 15 minutes from Peniche, and is one of the most beautiful castles in the area. Walking the streets and castle walls, any girl will feel like a princess! Could you imagine if you were one of the 3,000 people living in Óbidos? How many could say they live in a castle? Oh the dreams I have! With it’s well-preserved medieval architecture & cobble stone streets Óbidos is a hot tourist destination.
The past few weeks I was in Portugal, mainly in Peniche but I did do some traveling to surrounding areas. This obviously wasn’t my first time there. I have been going to Portugal since I was a little girl, as my family is from there, and I was living there for the past 2 years. Lisbon is one of my favorite cities in Portugal. Belem is where you’ll get the best Pastries in the WORLD! Made fresh and handed to you warm there is no holding back when it comes to ordering a dozen and eating just about all of them!
As most of you know I am heading to
Peniche, Portugal for a few weeks. Peniche is a small surf/fishing town just north of Lisbon. It is probably one of the prettiest places I’ve been to because of it’s cute historic, small town charm, and beautiful sandy beaches. Peniche cannot compare to any other beach town I have been to in awhile! Mind you it is also my home away from home! Spending a couple of years living there, I grew to love it, and it will always have a special place in my heart!
I always like my traveling outfits to be comfortable, there is nothing worse than sitting on a plane for 7 hours in uncomfortable clothing! I’ve decided to wear my cute animal print maxi dress from H&M, with some colorful feathers, cute flats and accessories. I will also be wearing a colorful scarf which I purchased in Hong Kong last year, my denim jacket and an orange cardigan to brighten the outfit up, and to make sure I don’t get too cold on the plane!
I’ll be leaving Toronto and heading to Portugal soon! How exciting! I am packing so much I just know it, but why not? I am there for almost 3 weeks! I have packed some of my favorite items, like my DIY denim frayed vest, sequin blazer (with added shoulder pads), my bright/bold print maxi dresses, cute tops, shorts, and of course my Ted Baker pumps! Must leave some room for any shopping I do over there! As for accessories, I cannot leave home without my Michael Kors watch , or any of my clutches, like the white leather neon piping BCBG messenger/oversized clutch, or my raffia Aldo striped clutch.
