I can't believe week 2 in Portugal has been and gone, this summer is going by super quickly and whilst I'm really looking forward to Autumn and being back in London, it doesn't stop me from felling slightly scared about how quickly this summer has flown by - I only have 1 week left! But enough of that, here's a look at what I got up to last week!

Golden Hour At The Beach

Last week we were by the sea for a couple of days for a wedding and so naturally, we squeezed in a trip to the beach! We spent most of the day at the beach and then went back to our hotel to shower and change for the evening. One thing I love about being by the beach is the incredible sunset which we made sure we didn't miss!

A Country Threatened By Flames

It's heartbreaking to hear about all the forest fires that are devastating Portugal at the moment, it's scary to feel the constant threat of fires spreading through the country. Whilst forest fires aren't a new occurrence in Portugal, every year they seem to get worse, affecting so many people and always the most vulnerable in villages like mine, surrounded by greenery.

 In 2015, I started this mini feature whilst in Portugal and so far, it's been a yearly thing. For that reason, I thought I'd bring it back again! As I spend quite a lot of time in Portugal I thought it would be nice to share some snippets of what I get up to on a weekly basis. I've decided to keep these roundups very casual with some snaps from my iPhone as they're usually the photos I really love and rarely get to share other than on my Instagram story (which disappears after 24hrs anyway). So here goes...

The Portugal I Know

This year - thanks to Instagram believe it or not - I've fallen for the Portugal I know. I say thanks to Instagram because it's on trend to capture images of vineyards, lemon trees and fresh fruits which is exactly what I am surrounded by here. I used to desperately search for white backgrounds and perfectly painted houses but this year, I couldn't be less interested in finding those and rather sharing snippets of what I've known my whole life.

An Evening In The Desert

 Going to the desert was something I desperately wanted to do whilst in Dubai, it's something so surreal yet we missed out on the experience during our first trip to Dubai back in 2014 and I wished we had been. So this time around it simply couldn't go a-miss. And so, one evening we set off from our hotel for a desert adventure.

Dubai is one of those cities that holds so many beautiful things; whether you're stepping foot in the desert or you're visiting The Dubai Mall for the first time, there's so much to see and do which go beyond your wildest dreams. Whilst we spent the majority of our days lounging by the pool, some days we just needed an escape into some air con filled rooms and luckily, there's plenty to see in Dubai!
