A break from the city in the Cotswolds

A break from the city in the Cotswolds

Living in a big city like London has its perks but it’s nice to get away from our hectic lives once in a while, even if it’s only for one night, hence why, when the opportunity to stay at the picturesque Swan Inn arose, I had to say yes!

The Swan Inn, based in the Cotswolds, has been welcoming guests  since the 1600s and it is now part of Country Creatures, a growing family of hotels, inns & restaurants focused on Great British Hospitality.

Here’s what we were up to at The Swan Inn:

London’s Hidden Villages: A day out in Marylebone Lane with @marylebonevillage

London’s Hidden Villages: A day out in Marylebone Lane with @marylebonevillage

Nothing beats a day spent roaming around a hidden village in London, exploring beautiful streets and indulging in a bit of shopping and eating delicious food! London is such a big city that we often forget about the small and quaint villages full of character and lively places to explore and hang out.

The other day I spent a day out in Marylebone Village, more specifically in Marylebone Lane, getting to know the independent shops, cafés and restaurants and the friendly faces behind them.

Check out my guide A Day Out in Marylebone Lane, that I’ve created in collaboration with Marylebone Village. After a day spent in Marylebone Lane, between delicious meals, window shopping and a wine tasting, I’m a convert and Marylebone Village already feels like home!

Visiting Aberdeen & Aberdeenshire had been on my bucket list for quite some time, not only I’d heard amazing things about this magical place, I’d also seen so many pictures of the beautiful highlands, fantastic castles and spectacular landscapes and lakes that my immediate reaction when @visitabdn reached out about a 3 day trip around Aberdeen and Aberdeenshire was YES, let’s do it!, one thousand times yes! 

And so it happened, from a Friday to a Sunday, my friend Deyana (aka @immovingtolondon) and I explored some of the most magical places of Aberdeenshire.

A Field to Fork Trip with Visit Jersey

A Field to Fork Trip with Visit Jersey

When I was approached by Visit Jersey to visit the island and try their amazing food, my answer was pretty simple: count me in!

The whole purpose of the trip was to showcase what Jersey has to offer, focusing on the amazing quality of Jersey’s fresh and natural produce, including Jersey’s Big Four: Oysters, Lobster, Dairy and Jersey Royals Potatoes.

Jersey is a small island – just 9 miles by 5 miles – meaning nothing is too far away, especially the sea which is never more than 10 mins away. There is so much history, you can do adventurous sports, scenic walks and of course, enjoy amazing food.

Jersey is an island where the sea and the land offer you an abundance of fresh delights and the islanders even have a saying: ‘The food tastes better when you see the sea’. I was born and raised by the sea, but it was only during this trip that I realised how true this is. Luckily I had plenty of opportunities to dine with sea views during this trip!

Let me tell you all about my 3 days trip with Visit Jersey

Although I moved to London more than 5 years ago, I have barely explored other cities in the country – shame on me! -, so when MGallery invited me to spend the weekend at the Castle Hotel Windsor, one of their 90 unique addresses around the world, to celebrate their Inspired by Her  campaign I had to say yes and I wasn’t disappointed!

Let me tell you all about it!

I have heard of Kefir before, but I had never tried it and didn’t know a lot about it either, but after the Light & Free Breakfast session, where we were introduced to their new Kefir, I was sold!

We learnt everything about Kefir drinks. It has a different taste and texture versus yogurt and it is high in protein and calcium.

Let me tell you a little bit more about it!

Well, hello there

Well, hello there

It took me ages to start this blog, I’ve been talking about creating one for I don’t know how many years long! It was something I’ve always wanted to do and was always postponing due to the most ridiculous excuses. Well, today is the day, and my first post is an introduction to My Daily Fairytales!

Demorei séculos para começar este blog, ando a falar sobre criar um blog há anos! Sempre foi um projecto que queria começar e passei anos a arranjar as desculpas mais disparatadas para não o fazer. Bem, hoje é o dia, e o meu primeiro post é uma introdução ao My Daily Fairytales!
