New beginnings and fresh starts.

September has always felt like perfect time for change. Perhaps because we both spent so much time as students that the start of a new school year in September feels like a natural fresh start, or perhaps it’s the slight change in weather, reminding us that summer is now a memory and a new season awaits, and with it, new opportunities to step into and new memories to be made. 

Whatever the reason, restarting our blog now, felt like the perfect time for a fresh start.

Portuguese poet, Luís Vaz de Camões, knew how important change was when he said:

“Times change, as do our wills, What we are – is ever changing; All the world is made of change, and forever attaining new qualities.” 

-Luís Vaz de Camões, Sonetos de Camões 

We’re so happy that you’re here with us to share in our love of all things meaningful and beautiful.

We share of love of Lisbon, Chihuahuas, sushi, coffee, binge-worthy tv, movies, being out in nature, the ocean, and our amazing mom.

And of course, we love literature and appreciate a kick-ass lipstick.
