I have dreamed of coming to Lisbon, Portugal since I was a very young girl.
Besides the amazing company, the food is what brings me to Lisbon, Portugal. Portuguese food out of all ethnic foods is the best in my opinion.
I will be uploading a post specifically to talk about the delicious gastronomy I have been tasting since I have been here.

Praca do Comercio
Commerce Square

If Lisbon was New York City then Praca do Comercio would be Times Square. This square of the city is a very popular destination for tourists that come to Lisbon. The famous Santa Justa Elevator, a variety of shops, street entertainers and a wide range of restaurants with authentic Portuguese dishes makes Praca do Comercio the place to be.

I thought that this man was a real statue

WORK WEAR

Lets talk Work Wear! When it comes to work wear, I am a firm believer in making the work attire as personalized as possible. I say this because many times I see people in dress pants and dressy bottom up shirts and they don’t look like they are having fun with it.

Fashion needs to be fun. If you work in the office, at a bank or another administration sector try to find out first the proper work attire. In many places for example, wearing this Calvin Klein t-shirt is not acceptable due to the fact that many businesses don’t want advertisements logos/brands from other companies advertised when they are not affiliated. Whereas in some companies bringing out your personality through your attire is seen as something very cool as long as you don’t draw unnecessary attention to yourself.

Perhaps what you can do different in this look is adding a blazer or even a leather jacket (without too many embellishments of course)  and you are set for the office. I took the approach of wearing my jacket that can be worn indoors without giving a heavy feel. I tend to wear my coats unbuttoned to appear to be  oversize since is very trendy now.

Work Wear attire doesn’t need to age you. Always try to incorporate fun and elegant looks at your place of work because it tells a lot about yourself.

I am not a restaurant manager, this look was shot during happy hour at an amazing restaurant which I have provided the link at the bottom and

Summer Fun: Beer Festival

img_1052

Hello fashionable people!
Many of my friends who know me know that I don’t drink alcohol and have been asking me “What are you doing at Beer Fest if you are not going to try all of the different flavors of beer?”
I’ll give you all a bit of information about me. I am the kind of person that rarely says “Why?” I usually say “Why Not?” Plus I took some cool beer photos!
To me the experience of attending a festival like this is best with great company. I love trying new things and I wanted to have an idea on how the Beer Fest works. With a variety of food trucks there, a foodie like me is on an amazing adventure to taste everything possible.
 Beer Fest is a festival that happens in Hamilton, Toronto, Niagara Falls and other cities in Ontario. I attended the one in Niagara Falls this year. My crowd thought the beers tasted fantastic. The food trucks were delicious as well. I’m not into drinking, but If you are a beer lover, then I believe you should try checking out Beer Fest in the summer.

Quality vs Price Tag

IMG_8210

So for the longest time I kept looking for this jacket from Zara. Every time I wanted the jacket it was sold out. So now it’s back in stores and I just couldn’t pass it this time. The dilemma was the price vs quality. The same jacket came in faux leather and real genuine leather. The faux leather is $89 and the real one is $199. I kept thinking do I get the fake one since it’s cheaper or the real one although a bit much but will last me a long time?

Well if you know me well already I LOVE  a good quality piece (I had to stress out the word love by writing in capital letters). Sometimes I just have to close my eyes and get the item with good quality. I would prefer to buy something a little more expensive if I know that it will be durable and I can wear a lot of times.
