Hello! I’ve been traveling and not always able to keep up with this space. Real life is just so much better than sitting behind a computer but I have missed typing to you! I wanted to share a peek at the beautiful public garden space in Beja, Portugal where I enjoyed many walks. The parks in Portugal are so special. After Beja, I got swept away by Lisbon for a month, then less than 24 hours in Paris to see the amazing Rubi Jones for a bit of a trim, then to London for a fun project I’ll be sharing soon. You gotta love those $25 Ryan Air tickets!
Currently I am in Montenegro. Do I have any readers here? I’d love to hear about your tips for food and places to wander. It’s such a new experience for me here and I am loving it! I don’t know how long I’ll stay. I am just taking one day at a time. I’ve been shooting so many fun stories for this site as well as some other magazine’s websites that I can’t wait to share soon. I am also working on some travel guides for you for better takeaways and easier accessibility to travel tips.
For my current favorite things: Pinterest and daily travel updates, my Instagram.
What’s inspiring you lately?
I am loving big giant lilies arranged on the floor, Portuguese band Best Youth, the poetry of Sophia de Mello Breyner Andresen, my new-to-me vintage dress found for 5 Euros at a charity shop, and London’s Brixton Market.
Oh and I wanted to mention we have a brand new advertising program this year, geared toward small businesses. I love partnering with artists and small business owners to promote your beautiful handmade products so contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to work together on something new and creative or would just like to be part of our small group of special sponsors!
Bye for now! Coming up next: A bohemian artist’s space in Lisbon’s oldest neighborhood!

It is really nice to read your experiences and see this amazing (I am Portuguese) country through your eyes!
Very nice and i know that place, congratulations you writte well and take good photos…and don’t be afraid i’ m not a stalker only writte here to say that you must (and your readers also) go to the most beatiful town of Alentejo, it’s call Évora and it’s world patrimony from UNESCO
I come from Bosnia and Herzegovina, and when I saw that you are i Montenegro I wanted to write to yo. This Summer I was in Herceg Novi for 10 days on sea side, and it is really nice city. It’s really famous for cacti “forests” all around the city. I haven’t been i Winter/Spring, but in August it’s really gorgeous! Also if you come down to the coast, I recommend you go to Cetinje. The road to here is on of the most breath taking, and also it looks very dangerous. Cetinje is old Montenegro capitol, and is one of few cities that Ottomans didn’t concur. There are also cities like Kotor and Risan that are lovely which are on the coast. All of this you can see in two-three days if you really want to explore. Montenegro has some of the most spectacular mountains as well. Žabljak is the first that comes to my mind. Also, if you decide to come to B+H, cities like Trebinje and Mostar on south are lovely. They have top wine there. National park Sutjeska and only rain-forest Perućica in Europe are god place to visit. I tis on the border between B+H, Montenegro and Serbia. And if you come to North, be sure to come to Banjaluka, where I live. Everything is starting to bloom now, but in a month or two Tilia trees will bloom, and that is the most wonderful time to be in Banjaluka (and the smell is divine). You can check my IG account – uhhehh to see all these places, from my Summer road tip.
