A guide to romantic Lisbon, Portugal

Lovely Lisbon! Lovely post! “Obrigada” Georgette 🙂

Girl in Florence


Truth be told, I have been obsessed with Lisbon ever since we got back from our #winteroadtrip from the south of France to Portugal this past December. Five days of living it up with my partner in crime and I really think we got the most of our vacation, it was non-stop walking, eating, drinking and experiencing. This city is full of all sorts of interesting corners and neighborhoods, a place where your first impression is drastically different from your last. The contrasts here are so abundant, but that’s what I love about it.

With romance in mind, here are my thoughts on how to spend a romantic day in one of my newest favorite cities in Europe, Lisbon – Portugal. 

Stairways to heaven 

The bad news about Lisbon is that its a city full of hills, steps and stairwell. If you plan on being the world’s fittest citizen…

Portuguese Art pieces for Maison Lacroix

Portuguese porcelain and crystal brand Vista Alegre teamed up with Maison Christian Lacroix to create this collection of 12 porcelain vases – made ​​in Portugal – directed by Sacha Walckhoff.
“Founded in 1824, the Vista Alegre Porcelain Factory was the first industrial unit dedicated to producing porcelain in Portugal. The persistence of its founder, José Ferreira Pinto Basto, was determining to the launching and success of this daring enterprise. A landowner, audacious merchant and distinguished figure in Portuguese society at the time, José Ferreira Pinto Basto wisely adopted the liberal ideas of the 19th century, having become “the first example of free initiative” in Portugal.”
Vista Alegre sets on the tables of some of the world’s most relevant figures, including Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, His Majesty King Juan Carlos of Spain and Her Majesty Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands, as well as at the White House, the Presidential House of Brazil, the Presidential House of the Portuguese Republic and countless embassies and institutions, both public and private, all over the world.
Vista Alegre Atlantis is recognised as a high-quality porcelain manufacturer by countless specialists and was awarded the Excellence Status by prestigious organisation Superbrands in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Vista Alegre cria peças únicas para a Casa Lacroix
“Fundada em 1824, a Fábrica de Porcelana da Vista Alegre foi a primeira unidade industrial dedicada à produção da porcelana em Portugal. Para a fundação e sucesso deste arriscado empreendimento industrial foi determinante o espírito de persistência do seu fundador, José Ferreira Pinto Basto. Figura de destaque na sociedade portuguesa do século XIX, proprietário agrícola, comerciante audaz, incorporou sabiamente o ideário liberal do século, tendo-se tornado “o primeiro exemplo de livre iniciativa” em Portugal.”
A Vista Alegre está na mesa de personalidades como a Rainha Isabel II de Inglaterra, o Rei Juan Carlos de Espanha e a Rainha Beatriz da Holanda, assim como na Casa Branca, na Presidência Federativa do Brasil e na Presidência da República Portuguesa, assim como de inúmeras embaixadas e outras instituições, públicas e privadas, em todo o mundo.
A Vista Alegre Atlantis é igualmente reconhecida por inúmeros especialistas como fabricante de porcelana de alta qualidade, comprovando-o a distinção de Marca de Excelência, atribuída pela prestigiada Superbrands, em 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.

Elections to the European Parliament will be held at the end of coming May – that is to say, in only four months’ time. Their outcome will have deep, long-lasting implications – not only for democracy, but also for the practical life of Europe’s citizens. Decisions on how the institutions on which the Euro and the Union are built should continue to be reformed over the next few years will be significantly, if not decisively, influenced by the outcome of these polls – not only due to the power of the Parliament itself, but also due to the powerful signals it can send to the Council regarding how electors stand on furthering European integration in the near future.

This is especially true in the case of the Eurozone countries and, particularly, for those countries most affected by the many recent crises, subject to financial assistance programmes, such as Portugal, which…

Política de Cor

Uma forma de intervenção política, que se inicia e também por esse facto, no ciclo político mais indigno da Democracia Portuguesa, com princípio em 10 de Novembro de 2015, após o derrube no Parlamento, do XX Governo Constitucional sufragado maioritariamente nas Legislativas de Outubro, e com fim ainda desconhecido. O regime ideológico assenta na Democracia Contemporânea e na defesa dos seus valores fundamentais - a Liberdade, os Direitos Humanos Individuais e a Igualdade de Oportunidades. O modelo de desenvolvimento económico é o Liberalismo Moderno ou Social, nos objectivos e estratégias.
