Last week we have enjoy some quality time in the Algaves.

Portugal (and the Algarves) is one of our favorite destination; in a few weeks we will post a “where and what” on the Algarves but in the mean time we couldn’t wait to write about Mo de Cima.

Mo de Cima is a small Bead & Breakfast located in the small fisher village of Fuseta. The house is located in an old mill that was completely refurbish.

The house is located at the end of the Ria Formosa and overlook it. While seating on the terrace you see the water of the Ria Formosa break through the sea with all the small fisher boats floating on it (magical).

The restaurant of Mo de Cima isn’t a “real” restaurant as it doesn’t serve big and heavy dishes but serves lots of small Portuguese tapas, each one better than the other….

The wine cart isn’t big but the selection is just perfect; try one of the local white wine while seating outside watching the sunset and listening to the pink flamingos, the frogs and the fishes sounds……..Paradise !!!!









A while ago we have found a new candle Brand called “Earl of East London”.

The Brand was founded in East London 2014. They had a small store in a converted shipping container in Netil Market, selling a curated mix of independent brands from around the world.

As part of them own creative exploration they launched a range of hand-poured scented soy wax candles in summer 2015. Them unique fragrances are inspired by them travels and memories.

Them mission is defined in 4 key elements: Curate, Create, Collaborate and Community.

Soon online on our webstore.







GUR aren’t simple rugs, each GUR rug is a work of Art !
GUR focus on tradition, allowing to discover the expansion of artistic forms using traditional materials and techniques of the history and culture from Portugal.
Working in partnership with the artisan weaver of rugs, GUR invites artists to express themselves on this support with a very specific technique using the same materials with the authenticity of a traditional kitchen rug but now much more fun. 

All the GUR are handmade, held in a traditional handloom, with cotton raw tirela (rag), embossed technique or over layers of colours, finishing with basic sewing.
GUR can be the first place where you put your feet in the morning, a picnic friend or a frame in your living room…..
We love them !!!
