lovely story: zig

hello, how is your week going? did you return to work this monday? i´m on vacation until 13rd september. i´m meeting my dear friend Rita from {cv love} this week, so maybe there will be some good news!
well, being on vacation let me give more attention to zig. how big he is! everyone says these puppies are very destroyers, but i´m not sure if this is truth, at least for zig! he is a good boy, so sweet. i went out for two days & i must confess, i missed him!


Olá, cmo está a correr a vossa semana? regressaram esta semana ao trabalho? eu estarei de férias até dia 13 de setembro. esta semana vou encontrar-me com a Rita do blog {cv love}, por isso talvez boas notícias venham a caminho.
Estes dias de férias permitem-me dar mais atenção ao zig e ver como ele cresce tão rápido. Toda a gente diz que estes cachorros são muito destruidores, mas eu não tenho a certeza disso, pelo menos em relação ao zig. ele porta-se bem e é amoroso! estive ausente de casa por dois dias e devo confessar que senti saudades dele!

tastes like summer.

hello sweet readers! i´m back, after a relaxing weekend. Saturday we went to Feira Artesanal da Graça & Feira da Ladra and yesterday we spent our day in Praia Grande, it was very very hot!
today we´re going to Museu Berardo in Belém & maybe in the end of the day we´ll take zig for his first beach walk .


Olá, estou de volta depois de um super fim-de-semana! Sábado fomos até à Feira Artesanal da Graça e à Feira da Ladra e ontem passámos o dia na praia Grande, estava imenso calor! Hoje vamos visitar o Museu Berardo em Belém, e talvez ao fim do dia leve o zig a dar o seu primeiro passeio pela praia!

Well this summer hasn´t been one of the best, but i still have some days in setptember.

bom dia! hoje está um dia meio nublado por aqui. Ontem fiquei por casa a mudar algumas coisas no meu quarto detesto quando as coisas permanecem iguais durante muito tempo...
Este verão não tem sido dos melhores, mas já falta pouco para setembro, ou pelo menos quero pensar que falta.
Hoje queria cozinhar qualquer coisa doce, alguma coisa que me aconchegue.

today with {a lomo love affair}

hello lovely friends! how is your week going? mine is going well, and just today i have this little time to write to you, between work, zig João & my friends sometimes it is not easy. but today we have a special post, an amazing interview with a lovely & brilliant photographer, miss {twiggs} from {a lomo love affair}. i´m sure most of you know her work. This was her second shop with a completely different style but still has her unique touch.


Olá :) como tem corrido a vossa semana? a minha até tem corrido bem, apesar de ser difícil encontrar tempo livre com o trabalho, o zig, o joão e os amigos. Mas hoje esse tempinho surgiu! e hoje temos um post especial, com uma fantástica entrevista...uma adorável fotógrafa {twiggs} e a sua {a lomo love affair}. Tenho a certeza que muitos de vocês já conhecem o trabalho da twiggs. Esta foi a sua segunda loja, e ainda que tenha um estilo diferente, não deixa de ter a sua marca própria!


When did your passion about photography start?

hello sílvia, how are you? thank you so much for this lovely invitation, it is such an honor! well, my passion about photography began a few years ago, when I was spending Christmas in new york, and someone really important gave me my first point-and-shoot for Christmas present. I was in the perfect city to start shooting. and from then on, it didn’t stop… it became usual for me and my friends, that I always carried a camera with me! but when I think about my childhood, I can also remember me holding a film camera, given by the very same person, and taking pictures of the family together!

Why the name {a lomo love affair}?

I love different names, with love, romance or some attitude in the middle! I love lomo cameras… I got one on my first Christmas with Mr Twiggs. And it was such a love affair with it, because it became my best friend, though lomography may be a bit hard to explain to others! I had decided to create a tumblr account just to share my lomos… and though the first name was not this one, soon it hit me. it was a love affair!

What inspires you in your photography is:

 everything that surrounds me. this seems the most common answer photographers give, but everything does inspire us. the people that cross my path… the street life… flowers… gardens… Lisbon and the places I visit.

What do you most love shooting?

the small details! though I like to take pictures to beautiful landscapes, I only do it to try different things for myself. but soon after buying the new camera, I soon realized that I might be a macro lady! I love finding small things in the nature mostly. When I get asked what do I shoot, it’s always hard for me to answer… because my photography is made from what is in front of me, so life happening in front of me is what I shoot.

Define your photography in three words.

Romance & Delicateness meets a Happy Life! (technically these are way more than three words, I know!)

Finally, what advice would you give for someone new in photographyland?

 Explore, explore, explore, do not give up and make the best of what you have! And make it manually! I had a point-and-shoot camera for years, it was hard for me to see all those magnificent images taken with reflex professional cameras, but I had no choice (nor the money), so I had to learn everything to make my best! there is so much you can learn from others just by looking… and trying. and then, put yourself into some challenges and learn the challenges your camera faces, to avoid them! As they usually say, what makes an excellent photographer is not the camera… but the eyes! 



Isn´t this interview lovely? visit her shop {here}!



And if you want tou know more about twiggs, you have many places to visit: her {blog}, her {flickr}, her {twitter}, her {facebook}!

Obrigada Claúdia  e um beijinho!

Sílvia.

well today i have another recipe to share, one more time inspired by Diana from the mood for food blog! i love eggs so i didn´t think twice about trying this recipe.




Olá! como foi a vossa semana? a minha foi de trabalho mas acredito que esta experiência vai ser importante para o meu currículo  Obviamente que preferia ir até à praia, mas às vezes temos que fazer algumas escolhas mais difíceis. mas não há problema em setembro vou ter alguns dias e o João gosta bastante da ideia!

Hoje venho partilhar outra receita, mais uma vez inspirada pela Diana do blog In the mood for food. eu adoro ovos por isso mal vi a receita sabia que tinha mesmo de a experimentar.
