Cascais – Lisbon, Portugal

Within approximately 31km away from Lisbon you will find this old and new style homes municipal called Cascais. A very prestigious area full of beautiful historical sculptures, amazing restaurants, shops, the Cascais Shopping and of course the breath taking Cascais beach.
A lot of the rich and famous live in Cascais. Many influential people in  Portugal prefer this quiet area to live and relax, over downtown Lisbon.
Portugal’s constructions are a mix of modern and ancient infrastructures. The beautiful colors of Cascais are very captivating for locals and even more for tourists because at times gives you the sense of being in an older historic town with a modern twist.
Although my main reason to come to Portugal was for the gastronomy, I was too busy eating and forgot to document majority of the food. My next post I will talk about the amazing places I have eaten at and some more site seeing I did while I was there.

The Hype Of Freeport Lisbon Fashion Outlet

LOCATION :
Avenida Euro 2004, 2890-154
Alcochete, Portugal



I know its hard to believe but shopping is the least of my concerns when travelling. There are only two places so far that I go crazy for shopping: US and Canada.
If I end up going shopping while on vacation I end up going to a very hyped mall or an outlet in that region usually highly recommended by other tourists and locals. So that’s how I ended up in Freeport Outlet.
If I buy something while I am away it has to be something special that I would have a hard time finding in Canada.
Although many people told me about Freeport and the great shopping experience I just couldn’t feel the same. I spent most of the time sitting down because I was tired of the long walks due to the structure of the outlet.
I ended up leaving with a full belly since lunch ended up being at a very delicious restaurant in the food court.
Perhaps I went at a time that didn’t have a lot of the latest fashion I tend to gravitate towards. If you are visiting Portugal and end in this area check out the Freeport Outlet to have your own opinion of this hyped outlet.

Summer Fun: Port Dover

IMG_1317

Port Dover is an amazing place to relax after a long work week. Known specially for Friday the 13th and Labour Day long weekend; bikers find this small town the go to place on those days to show off their most exotics motorcycles and cars.
Port Dover’s main attraction of course is its nature. The lake makes many people dream of a tropical destination. This place is very relaxing and beautiful. Perfect for picnics, walks by the beach, sports on the sand and much more. Don’t forget your sunscreen, and enjoy this hot spot Ontario has to offer before summer ends!

Spring Practicality

IMG_7429 I have been away from blogging for a while now. Sorry everyone I have been very busy with my work (unrelated to fashion). Most bloggers I know have created their blog a source of income.

 I wish I could do that as we’ll but at this time in my life I can’t. My credit cards would be crying on me lol.
Many people are asking me “when are you doing the next post”? Even a guy asked me. This made me happy because even men are noticing my blog that is strictly tailored for women’s fashion.

My Instagram is growing so much since I have it for less than a year. Daily, I receive direct messages of people either commenting or asking me things about fashion I think this is amazing.

For ages I have been looking for long vests like the one I have on the pictures. Sorry but I don’t know exactly what they are called even after doing research I still don’t know the name so I am calling it – long vest.
I believe they were more in style last year. It was difficult for me to find this vest because sometimes I get caught on trends when they are not so trendy anymore.

I like the colour of this vest because it can be very versatile. I can wear it in the fall, spring and summer. Can be thrown over a fitted dress, jeans or anything. I incorporated this look with my old favourite white jeans from Hollister (still available). I hope you enjoy the look lets keep this spring very practical by incorporating pieces that can be worn all year round.

Just wanted to shout out everyone that has been a support in this fashion adventure. I thank you all for the comments, questions, likes and emails.
