In Portugal the Christmas tradition is to open the presents on Christmas Eve at midnight, so, on Christmas Day, when I was deciding what to wear to go to my grandparent's house in the Portuguese countryside, almost 3 hours away by car, I knew it had to be warm and comfortable. I didn't want to give up wearing my new rust midi dress from H&M, so from that I added my sister's Christmas gift to me, the Uniqlo wool jumper, my most comfortable pair of shoes, and also more wool with the vintage scarf and beret. I had to be warm believe me, it is a place where it actually snows in Portugal (as opposed to my hometown) and I was freezing taking these pictures. Both me and my sister were happy to get back close to the fireplace after this photoshoot was over
I just reached 250 followers today, and I want to thank each and every one of you for visiting my corner in this enormous world of the internetz. So thank you! Also, if you've been around here last summer, you may remember this post? It was also at my grandparents. Same place, different season, instead of freezing cold it was sweltering heat. There's Portugal's inland for you.
On and yeah, I saw some guy on the tube with a British Museum tote and on the first occasion I went back there, I didn't rest until I found one for myself. After looking at all the gift shop, I finally found out they were at the till... It is my favourite museum in London, standing side by side with the Natural History Museum (I am a biology lover, too!).
