Wow! What a journey it has been. Can’t believe I have my baby girl sleeping next to me right now and also can’t believe I found some time to write this post. Mom life is no joke! But to get here, I went through my last 3 months of pregnancy and this is how it went. Week 28/29/ 30: Week 28 I went for my last check up in...

My second trimester is over and these past 3 months have been amazing and full of firsts! So many different symptoms, emotions and just general feelings. Finding out the gender and feeling the first kick were definitely the ones I was looking forward to the most! Weeks 13/14/ 15/16 : Week 13 was a pretty easy one, no...

I’m back and I have amazing news! So after a couple of months hiatus from the blog (I’m sure the title has probably clued you into why), I’ve finally found some time to share our new… I’m expecting! Before talking about how my first trimester went, let me tell you how we decided we were ready to become parents! Ever since...

Paradise exists and it’s called Maldives! Going to the Maldives was always a dream of mine and it lived up to it’s reputation as one the most beautiful places on earth.

Time with my family, finishing my uni semester and managing to squeeze in some work made the Brazil trip a success but alas, it’s time to head back home. Well, a quick stop off in one of my fav cities en route though. NYC! This time thought, it was only a quick visit and I decided to focus my limited time on museums!...

Need a break from tanning on the beaches of Floripa? No worries, there’s still a lot of other things to do here. Florianópolis is full of delicious places to eat and gorgeous touristy places to see. So I get that I’m biased as everywhere I go in Floripa looks beautiful and Brazilian food is everything to me, so...

Hello, Florianópolis! Hello, Brazil! Is always so good to be back home and visiting my parents in my home town… For those who don’t know, I was born and raised in Florianópolis, a small island located in Santa Catarina in the south of Brazil. With a population of 470k,  Floripa, as it’s commonly known, is very famous for...
