Last day in Camden

March 2, 2015

This weekend I spent part of a day in Camden and for a good reason. My friend Michel is going back home to Berlin this week and wanted to get some silly souvenirs. As we hadn’t been to that part of town together yet, there we went. We had a great time, it has to be said. It was raining for a bit here and there but even that didn’t spoil our fun day.

We started by taking photos of my outfit – who is going to do that for me now that he will be gone? :(

February linkage

March 1, 2015

February, the shortest month of the year. Although it was short, that didn’t stop me from being busy as usual. Pancake Day celebrations, Fashion Week related events and other amazing things. It also needs to be noted that I tried porridge and deep fried Mars bars for the first time – going further into my acculturation process. I’m practically British, no?

Bloggers Love is a platform that organises events, both online and offline, to connect brands with bloggers and this Gossip Girl themed occasion seemed like a good opportunity to go down and see what was happening.

The Tattoo Files – Meet the Carvas Family

February 24, 2015

I’ve known Joao for many years, we were friends back in Portugal. He now lives in Kent with his family and a visit was long overdue. It was his idea to do a tattooed family blog post and what a great idea that was!

I hopped on the train from London and spent a lovely weekend with the Carvas family, taking photos, eating, drinking and generally being merry. We did a short interview as well on their tattoos, and I think we did a good job. I hope you enjoy it!

Tattoo regret – what would you do?

February 20, 2015

As some of you might know, I am a tattoo fan and have several myself. I generally don’t mind them, in as much that I have a couple that I have that I maybe wouldn’t get today but not to the point of hating them. There is one that I’ve done myself, when I was learning how to tattoo that is probably the worst that I’ve got. At least I’ve only got myself to blame, right?

I’ve thought a few times about doing a cover up – or at least integrating it into something else but the reality is that I haven’t come up with any brilliant idea for it in the last few years.

I have several friends and acquaintances that have tattoos, so I did a bit of asking around, was there any regret and would anyone consider laser tattoo removal?
