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!

Sasha

Have You Visited Positano & Amalfi Coast Yet?

There are still quite a few more outfits and cities I’ll be featuring on the blog from my last year’s trip to Italy, however today I’m sharing this post from the last location we visited: beautiful Positano. As we visited Italy in the fall, outfits left to share are more fall appropriate, so I will share them come September. I’ll be dealing with two little babies then so God knows how much time I will have to shoot new outfits. As I’m laying on my couch bored out of my mind counting down the days to my delivery next week (whooohoooo!!!) I’m experiencing such FOMO. Partially because I won’t be going on vacation this summer (though becoming a mom to two little girls is quite awesome!!) and partially because I’m reminiscing of my travels last year. Positano seems to still be one of the most photographed summer destinations so I’m sharing a few pictures from my trav…

Bouclé Red Teddy Coat

OTK boots (similar), sweatshirt/dress H&M, coat Koton, handbag Zara (same bag Ebay & similar)
Hello darlings, here I am again after a 3 month absence. If you follow me on my Instagram account, you know I have a good excuse. I’m 4 months pregnant and just got over my first trimester. Those of you who have been pregnant know how tiring the first trimester can be. On top of that, I’m expecting twins, two girls!!!! So I guess I can say I was double tired hehehehe. I still owe you more outfits & posts from Italy and Serbia from last fall, but before I go back to that, let me share a few outfits which are more appropriate for the current winter/spring weather. I shot both this outfit and the one I will share with you in the next post during my first month of pregnancy before the exhaustion kicked in, but I never got to post them on the blog. Today is all about this teddy red coat. The brand is Koton and it was only $80. It is really soft and cozy and I’ve gotten a lot of complim…

Two Outfits in Milan

1st outfit: dress H&M, boots Ebay, jacket Zara 2nd outfit: jeans Topshop, boots Primadonna Collection, shirt Bershka, coat unknown
If you have been following me for some time, you know that last year I took 6 months off and one of the things I did during that time is take a road trip through Italy. First stop was Venice and you can read more about it in this post as well as here. Third stop on the trip (yes I know I skipped the second, but we’ll return to it another day) was Milan. Since I was a little girl, Milan was a place I really wanted to visit. I had such high expectations; partially due to it being one of fashion capitals, partially due to the beautiful Duomo of Milano, and because it was on my bucket list since I was a kid. I don’t quite know why, it just always was. Well, needless to say Duomo di Milano is absolutely stunning and a must see when visiting this big city. Walking the roof of the cathedral will leave you breathless. Just imagining how many man hours were spen…

Hello lovelies. I hope everyone had a beautiful weekend. Hopefully, those of you who are moms got to be pampered and spoiled by your kids and partners. I hope you also showed your love to your moms and thanked them for everything they have done for you. We should be doing it every day, but it’s really nice to have a day dedicated to these amazing women. I know how much my mother means to me and she certainly deserves every day to be dedicated just to her. I’m sure all of you feel the same way about your mothers too. Even the sun came out to shine and make Mother’s day even more special. I made sure to go bare legged to welcome the warmth and the sun. Today’s outfit is a cute spring look, easy to pull off. Black and white stripes always make a statement and a little pop of colour just makes the outfit complete. I spent the day out mostly and o…
