Zambujeira do mar – Festival do sudoeste

This lovely beach is placed in a tiny Portuguese village called Zambujeira do Mar. We used to go there every Summer to spend a few days during the Sudoeste Festival. It was a great Festival: not too famous, not too crowded and not too far from the beach. We spent the mornings lying in the beach and the afternoons and nights dancing and listening to our favourite bands. I remember Beck singing a cool version of Beyonce’s Crazy in love, a spectacular Moloko’s concert, an unexpectedly funny Morcheeba’s show, the best Jamiroquai’s concert ever and much much more… Oh, and I got so angry at The Cure’s concert!!! I was so excited before and so disappointed afterwards… It was great… I even liked camping then. Well, what can I say? I was young and inexperienced! So, if you like camping under pine trees (beware of the fire!), long Summer nights with your favourite music and Sagres beer, you should give it a try! This year the festival takes place from 1st to 5th August and it’s …

Lékué: Kit Macaron

Macarons are a must lately. Everyone seems to love them… I do too! Partly because I have a major case of sweet tooth, and partly because I have zero personality and fell for every trend, I don’t care if it’s fashion, decor, food… Yep. That’s me.

Childhood vacation memories

The other day I came across a blog that talked about a little village in Italy where I used to spend the holidays when I was a child. It really surprised me because I haven’t thought about those days in a very long time. So lets get down the memory lane… Where did you spend your childhood vacations?  Beach? Mountains? Summer in the city? Which are your best memories? Mine are going to the market at 7 a.m. with my grandmother, going fishing with my grandfather, riding my bike with my cousins and our dogs and playing in the swimmingpool with my mother. I really loved Summers!

In my suitcase: A great tee

Here we are again, preparing my suitcase for Summer! I know, I know… most of you are already in Summer, but I’m still in last years’ Autumn. This is the North of Germany! When it comes to t-shirts, I’m all for plain, basic, boyish/sometime rockerish style. I don’t like too much colour or printed fabrics… I like my tees simple and comfy.

Ti Breizh

This is one of my favourite restaurants in Hamburg. I’ve already told you about it here. This time we took my mother and she loved it too! The atmosphere is lovely, the decor is simple and rustic with that fancy French touch and, of course, the crepes are delicious!


I’m going to share with you one of our secret places. Yep. Our secret places are those amazing little places that we discover by chance sometimes, we get so excited, we just can’t belive our luck, then we come back home and want to tell everything about them to our friends… but then we just don’t because we want to keep those wonderful discoveries to ourselves. Does this ever happen to you? Or are we selfish and weird?


We love books. All of them. We have to be careful not to spend our whole budget on books. The first piece of furniture that we bought was a huge bookcase! And we love food. So… we love cookbooks! This is our little cookbook collection in our kitchen.
