When travelling, the best discoveries appear unexpectedly. During our last trip to London we were escaping from the crowded Baker Street when we came across the tiniest, loveliest, coolest street.
You know we love the work of our friends at Antonio Bayona Jewellery. We have collaborated with them for almost two years (Wow! Time flies!) and we love how they have grown. Not every day we have the chance of witnessing the creative process of an exclusive brand that only produces handmade pieces! Today, we want to show you the new colourful pieces they have added to their collection. The days are longer, the temperatures are warmer and we are all longing for this new season! Even us, monochromatic all-black-sometimes-grey-or-navy girls, want to add some luminosity to our wardrobe. And this pieces are the perfect way to do so. Pops of colour to cheer up your looks. Besides, how gorgeous are those rings? Oh, and the bracelets are customizable: you can choose your favourite enamel colour and go all matchy-machy with your other AB pieces.
The best part? Today you can get a 15% off in all AB pieces!!! Head to their shop and treat yourself!
Lisbon is one of those cities that grows on you. Charming, decadent and melancholic. This week we dedicate our moodboard to Lisbon’s miradoiros, steep streets and tiled facades.
Long conversations overlooking the river at Miradouro Santa Catarina. A glass of wine in Bairro Alto. A morning wandering through the corridors of the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum. A night of Fado in Alfama. And of course, some Pastéis de Belém.
Welcome to the second chapter of our gourmet Marylebone series! A couple of weeks ago we finally tried Patty & Bun burgers. We’ve heard a lot about them and we had seen the queue on the street so we wanted to know what all the fuss was about.
During our last trip to London we stayed again in our beloved Mandeville Hotel. The room was great, the staff was super friendly (Hi Marco!) and the attention was impeccable. Being our favorite London headquarters in the Marylebone area, we decided to explore it and make the most of it.
P. is spending this week at home, in Seville. She will be attending the famous Semana Santa and enjoying some quality time with the family. I will miss her so bad, but this moodboard will keep me motivated. Seville is such a wonderful city. Fun, warm, bright and full of art!
If you are planning to visit Seville any time soon, check out our posts about the best place to have breakfast with the locals, Seville’s charming corners or the best spa in the most trendy hotel in town.

Today we are going to share with you our new favourite place in the world. The place where we had one of the loveliest dinners we’ve ever had. A couple of weeks ago, we were wandering through Marylebone village when we came across this cheese shop. We loved it immediately and when we saw a little poster saying that on Monday and Friday nights they open for cheese and charcuterie tasting we new we had a plan for the evening. It sounded so friendly: no reservations, just bring your friends.
Last year a friend took us to Primrose Hill. That was the first time we walked along St John’s Wood High Street . It was a lovely sunny day and we were surprised by all the little cafes, great shops and good looking families that we found in this street. It was like a whole new picture-perfect world. That kind of world you want to fit in. We wanted to be those skinny mums with gorgeous hair and cute children in pastel coloured strollers. We wanted to have a nice cup of coffe after a shopping spree in those beautiful boutiques. We wanted to casually pick a bunch of flowers from the little flower shops and meet our friends for brunch. Last weekend we spent a morning wandering through the streets of the neighborhood and yet again, we found St John’s Wood High Street so charming and lively. The skinny mums were there taking their children to the St. John’s Hospice Easter Fayre, the shops were still inviting and we even discovered new pretty places to have brunch. Here you have our little guide to St John’s Wood High Street, if you’d like to see…
