Visit York, England
The old town of York had been on my ‘Cities to visit in England’ list for a couple of years so I’m pleased to finally tick it off. If you’re hankering after a bit of Olde England yourself, simply book a Virgin train and get these places starred on your Google maps. Here are my things to do to while away a weekend in York.
Pena Palace – Sintra’s Colourful Palace
So we’ve established that Lisbon is colourful (take a look at my latest ‘A Rainbow Tour of Lisbon‘ post for proof)! But if you’re happy to spend a day away from the capital then Sintra is where it’s at. I’d been pining to go every since *that* post wishwishwish blogged years ago.
Quinta da Regaleira, where she shot, is one of the 5 palaces in the city of Sintra. There’s a lot to get through in one day and unfortunately my little gang and I only got the chance to marvel at one. But, oh my, what a palace it was.
Colour lovers, listen up! Lisbon is a hue haven, displaying pastel streets and patterned tiles at every turn. It’s the perfect city for colour hunting and to prove it, I’ve collated some of my favourite colourful Lisbon snaps into a spectrum. If you’re looking for a new way to discover Portugal’s capital, just let colour curiosity be your guide.
Over years, tastes change, and nowhere shows that more than in my jewellery collection!
I’ve gathered together my favourite pieces from both sides of my jewellery style coin so that you can spot something you like, no matter what your taste. Let me know if you’ve changed your collection growing up and if there are any pieces you can’t bare part from.
