I came across this article again even though it was written last September, but I thought I’d post it here since it combines my favourite shoe designer and my favourite destination. Although I am Canadian, my parents are Portuguese and the love for my culture runs through my blood. Travelling to Portugal since childhood, I’ve grown to appreciate the rich scenery and historic nature of the lands. From north to south, you see exactly what you expect to see in Europe. Unfiltered beauty, cobbled stone streets, historical churches and buildings. I will be in Porto this month and will surely make a stop in the Alentejo to experience the beauty Mr. Louboutin himself describes so perfectly. Read article here

The waistcoat has become a razor-sharp piece that instantly adds polish and flare to different looks. Over a dress, pants, skirt and top, you name it, it can be integrated. Loving these pieces from Massimo Dutti.
I’ve always loved watermelon. Practically watermelon everything from candy, gum, juice etc… I used to work in a corporate office where one of my coworkers ate watermelon for breakfast, lunch and a midday snack. I noticed that she’d do this starting in May and all throughout the summer. I asked her why the watermelon overdose and she replied, “how do you think I stay so skinny?”. Okay, I was sold, but I never took it to the extreme as she did. Even if i wanted to, I don’t think I could, I need substance. So I compromised. I would try to eat it at least once a day. Now, whenever summer is about to roll in, I eat and drink more watermelon. It’s not only delicious and yummy, it’s also super good for you. See the 5 reasons why:
1. It is the ideal drink to lose weight due to its low calories.
2. Watermelon is composed of about 90% water and contains vitamins A and C , as well as calcium, phosphorus and magnesium.
3. It is the perfect antioxidant : it is natural, it eliminates toxins and strengthens the immune system.
4. After doing physical exercise, it is a great option for re-hydration of the body .
5. Better yet, it helps keep your skin tanned longer .
