Could I be more excited about Spring? Not really, and it’s not only because of the warmer weather and longer days, as the SS16 is arriving to the shops I cannot hide my excitement, there are too many beautiful pieces that are too hard to not fall in love with!

Today I would like to introduce you to Chloe Girls SS16 collection.

‘Romantic softness’ is the defining phrase of the new Spring/Summer 2016 collection. Shapes are floaty, materials are fluid and light, and a soupçon of seventies style colours this look in soft and natural tones. Gold, powder pink, ocean blue and tropical green, the little Chloé girl leads us under the Californian sun, along idyllic coves, towards destinations that are reflected in her resolutely chic wardrobe. Here, denim is braided, a bold floral print draws the eye to casual separates, delicate blouses are in silk chiffon, shorts boast high waists and dresses are light and floaty, or feature floral embroidery. These details, taken from the Maison Chloé, punctuate this new summer wardrobe subtly and elegantly.

As you will notice I couldn’t resist to point out my favourites items, please stop me for buying it now!!! 😉

I’ve been planning to write this post since Suri’s Birthday party last September but for one reason or another I kept postponing it so today is the day!

Cakes by Robin

I came across Cakes by Robin through Instagram and immediately got hooked with their cake designs, from funny to classic and elegant there was nothing they couldn’t do… and beautifully!

Then of course when I was planning Suri’s Birthday it was a no brainer that they would be on the top of my list when it came to choose Suri’s cake. The theme was Ice-cream, invitations and decorations designed specially for her by Lima Limao so of course they suggested to design the cake and cupcakes based on the theme, I immediately agreed and left it with them to design it as they wanted.

Their choice of flavours is made in heaven and after long hours of indecision 😛 I’ve finaly chosen Chocolate fudge and Red Velvet.

I wish you could have seen Suri’s face when she saw it, everything was perfect. I cannot stress enough how everything was so carefully made that it didn’t even seem real, it was too perfect to be true and a shame to even touch this piece of art, yes, it was not a cake, it was really a piece of art!

But the best it was yet to come, the taste! Divine, yummy, delicious, there’s no words to describe it. Everyone loved and complimented it.

I have to admit we don’t go to Portugal as often as we would like to but when we do there’s one thing that I always make sure we do, having a delicious brunch in Lisbon!

Below are my two favourites so far ;).

Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

I wrote a more extended blog post on my old blog when I first tried their brunch, you can read it here, and one year later I have to reference it again as we are addicted to it. Last time we’ve been there (December 2015) we invited our parents to go with us and they loved it as much as we do.

From the food variety and quality to the excellent staff everything is carefully though and prepared to make sure guests have a wonderful time there. The room setting is beautiful and the atmosphere is elegant and classy but at the same time very friendly and relaxed.

Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon

The Ritz Sunday Brunch concept is carefully designed to include and welcome families with kids. Included in the brunch concept there’s what’s called Ritzlandia, kids from 4 to 14 years old can enjoy this space and play with other kids as well as Ritz staff who are there to take care and supervise them allowing parents to enjoy their time without having to worry about their children’s safety and at the same time make sure kids also enjoy their experience.  It’s a spacious room full of toys and activities to entertain kids, as always Suri was greeted by very friendly staff that made sure she would have a very good time, and she definitely did!

In Lisbon or travelling soon? Don’t miss this fabulous brunch!

Before we travelled to Portugal I started noticing this new Brunch concept a lot on Instagram and as the images and comments were fantastic I had to give it a go.

What a nice surprise we had. We invited some friends with two girls as well and tried the 12:30pm session (there’s another one at 2:30pm).

The views over Rio Tejo are beautiful and relaxing, the room’s atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the food stand was to die for, yummy! There was even a space for kids with an entertainer, girls loved it.
