Happy Easter!

April 4, 2015

This week I was pleasantly surprised when a chocolate Easter egg landed on my desk courtesy of Dragonfly Tea. When I cracked it open I was surprised to find some extra treats inside – a few new tea flavours for me to try: Swirling Mist, Emerald Mountain, Cape Malay Chai and Golden Himalaya. Thank you Dragonfly Tea for the lovely gift.


I wish you all a lovely Easter, filled with chocolate, tea and fluffy bunnies!


I love Tea – with Dragonfly Tea

Tea has been part of western culture for centuries, having been brought to Europe originally by the Dutch in the 17th Century. They seem to have started a trend that stuck! (Maybe we can write about other things the Dutch are famous for but that will have to be left for some other time).

I may have mentioned this before – I am a tea person. I can’t really drink coffee as I don’t like the flavour nor the aroma. For this I am occasionally made fun of because being Portuguese, I should LOVE coffee, the stronger the better. As this is not the case, when I want to have a hot beverage, tea is my go to option and I have never met a tea that I don’t like.

That said, Dragonfly Tea sent me a few flavours to try, and that’s what I’ve been doing for the past few weeks.

Week in photos

April 28, 2013

Sunday Sunday, I love a lazy Sunday. I mean who doesn’t? Having a lie in, time to do your own projects, nap and snack when you want… The perfect day of the week if you ask me!

Last weekend I traveled to Lincoln to go to the movies. It was a nice trip out. 

I wore a big flower on my hair and my uber cool DIY project.

Tabi shoes from Japan, Silver jeans and Dr Martens high heeled loafers.

More inappropriate wear for the Office-  rainbow platforms from the Office outlet on Ebay and the Ahcahcum Muchacha cat bag. I love it!

The red sparkly shoes I got from a blog sale at Emily Divine and the embroidered ones are from Oysho and I’ve had them for god knows how many years…

I love getting nice things through the post – particularly if they have s sense of humour. I got the rosette from Dear Colleen, a super fun indie shop from New Zealand. It’s a one woman show and what a great show it is, go on right ahead and have a look, you won’t regret it. I also learned how to use my sewing machine for the first time this week. I am hoping it will be a lasting love affair.

Yesterday I went to a tea party at Chloe’s. I was even given a teacup to match my outfit, how cute was that?

Party mask and cake!

We played twister and it was a laugh… to watch!!! I’ll be posting more about it during the week.

When I got home  I found a lovely package that had arrived when I was out – A flower crown and loads of goodies from Desiree of Pull Your Socks Up! Thank you for all the goodies – the kookaburra magnet went straight on the fridge and I can’t wait for an opportunity to wear the amazing flowers on my head.
