the first days…

First days of holidays are always the better. We think there will be plenty of time to do whatever we want and also to rest.

The weather at Peniche, (stop your vicious mind… the word has a Greek root, not a Latin one, so the similarities with the P word aren’t real ;) ), is being a bit crazy. Foggy at the morning, sunshine at the afternoon and chilly at evening, but always a bit windy.

We haven’t been yet at the beach, but we have done long walks and we are always out.

Yesterday I wore my floral maxi dress. I took one of the pictures near the sculpture that honours the Peniche’s lace makers, (a rendilheira). It’s a special lace, the “bilro” lace, that you can see here a picture.

sunglasses - mainland store

I’m very happy with my new long earring.
It was made just for me, and free of charge, by a girl that works at the café we usually go.
She was wearing one, and I said to her “I love your earring, where did you get it?”
She told me “Don’t worry I’ll make you one”.
Now I have also one. I love this kind of earring to wear alone or with just a little ball one on the other ear.

Once again “Searching the Inner Me…” has been honoured by the gorgeous and talented lady (¯`·._.·[***Celina***]·._.·´¯) from LUXOS E LUXOS with the Prémio Dardos, (Darts Award), which made me very happy, because the Darts Award recognize the values that each blogger shows each day on its commitment by transmitting cultural values, ethical, literary, personal, etc. ...
Thank you so much, my dear for thinking of me and for your generosity in sharing it with me.


Muito obrigado minha querida (¯`·._.·[***Celina***]·._.·´¯) de LUXOS E LUXOS pela sua generosidade em me passar o Prémio Dardos, que muito me honra, por aquilo que representa.

Logo que me seja possível cumprirei com as regras.


Now today’s outfit.
I know I’m wearing flats, but for long walks flats are better.

yellow shoes - mainland store
printed skirt - Zara
red top - H&M
vest - local store
handbag - local store
sunglasses - mainland store
earring - gift

I’m trying to visit your blogs as normally, but it’s not easy, because I just spend short periods of time in the internet. I must live the moment… sun, beach, adventure…
So I think you’ll understand.

Maybe tomorrow we’ll go to the capital. If so do you know what I’m going to see??? Well I think you wouldn’t guess, because it’s history, but not for me… so I’ll see SATC ;)

Now I leave you with just one word….



  1. Wow. Your vacation shots are sooo beautiful. I love both outfits, and certainly noticed two pairs of flats :)

    Emjoy! Enjoy! Enjoy!

    Gosh, I love all kinds of earrings, especially long ones, and yours is no exception. It's lovely and sooo long! Unfortunately I don't have my ears pierced (my first and only attempt when still a kid was disastrous...) but I'm planing to get them done sometime in the future. Till then, I'll sit here and envy all you girls who can wear lovely long earrings.

    Aww, you're so cute in the last picture! ^_^ That dessert looks yummy. Is that a kind of pancake with ice-cream, whipped cream and chocolate syrup? I love those... :P
