Since I was little girl, I have loved history. Learning about the Austro-Hungarian empire at school, I was inspired to visit Hungary one day. This summer, I managed to fulfill that dream and explore a new area of the world. For a long time, I admired the photographer, Brassaï who embraced European culture and captured the beauty of city streets. These days, I am doing the same. Enjoy below my shots of beautiful Budapest!
A place for the perfect postcard pictures. In this cool coastal city called Lisbon, it doesn’t matter where you’re standing as there is always something lovely to look at. Starting in the Praça do Comércio, there are loads of restaurants in Baixa. Eventually, one can find a spot to have a SuperBock. Then through the Arco da Rua Augusta, many small shops appear and street performers amuse. Next, the Elevador da Santa Justa takes you all the way up to be on top of the world.
After taking it all in, it’s best to visit take a break in this hot and humid weather. Drinking a Ginjinha, a Portuguese infused ginja berry liqueur is the best way to go. The shop is small and inviting. Just what you need for a refreshment. Of course, this leads to dessert. It’s a must to try pastel de nata, a small staple food from Belém. My best friend, James clearly enjoyed the sweet egg custard tart.
I can still remember his expression as we left the pastry shop. Strolling along Avenida da Liberdade, the amount of nature that encompasses the city is amazing. Soon, Parque Eduardo VII is right there. Take a walk in the park to end the day.

My outfit of the day was styled for the unpredictable New York weather. Today, it was overcast with a slight chill. I enjoy going for afternoon walks to people watch in my neighborhood. However, I’m one of those people who doesn’t really feel the cold as long as you’re in the sun. Dressing from the shoes and up, I chose my favourite rag and bone black leather Newbury boots, light Cos tights, J.Crew‘s green chino shorts, classic white rag and bone tank and a black cardigan by The Kooples in case it became a bit nippy. Sometimes it’s nice to keep things simple with a pop of colour. Observing pedestrians and consumers in Turtle Bay is quite entertaining while rocking Ray-Bans. Stay tuned for upcoming street photography.
We are all praying for the world but particularly Paris after the terrible terrorist attacks which occurred over the weekend. Here are my ten favourite photos that I have taken in the City of Lights. Sois forte, bisous!
Je t’aime Paris toujours ❤
