I have been lusting for this cardigan from the Isabel Marant for H&M men collection since i saw it on Chiara from Blondesalad blog. She looked so gorgeous with it and simply chic. The problem is that this cardigan is sold out in the morning it came out at H&M and it was such a tough task to find it but i finally managed to hunt for one and it's on its way to me. I'm so happy i found this gorgeous wool cardigan in size S.

I've been missing from this blog for a long time. Work was busy and life was a little hectic, didn't have much time to think about what to post on my blog. But well, this ZARA dress made me want to post again. I saw these fab pics on Chicisimo and hunted for it. Yes it was quite a hunt because it was sold out on the ZARA website and in several stores. Finally found it at the ZARA Galeries lafayette in my size. I was truly lucky to have found one. Will post a mod pic of me with this dress soon. It is very warm, perfect for winter.
After climbing up the steep stairs from the Plaça da Figueira to the Castelo do Sao Jorge, we turned left and got lost for a little while until we saw the church above. Luckily there was a guard of an employees' entrance of the castle park who gave directions to tourists who can't find the main entrance. So we walked through this incredible red door with a stunning suspended moss covered sculpture that led to the castle's main entrance.
The Castelo da Sao Jorge has a stunning view over Lisbon city. There are old canons displayed in the park and many narrow paths to walk around the castle's fortification. For those who have vertigo it's not that pleasant to walk around and look down.
The paths are about 3 meters from the ground.
From the Castelo do Sao Jorge, we walked down a street and found a restaurant called "Chapito" a circus school that also serves food, the waiters are the school's students.
Food was nice, fish in papillote, pana cota served in a wine glass, original and delicious.
The best part of the restaurant is its view on the roofs of Lisboa.
The lunch menu is about 20 euros entrée main course dessert a glass of wine and coffee, the price is much more expensive at night.
Then we walked back to the Castelo do Sao Jorge and took another street down to a nice plaça with a great view on the sea. There was a beautiful little white church there, not the Graça church but a smaller one with a Portugese style tiles on the side.
The yellow tram N°28 stops at this view point.
About 10 minutes' walk from there, we went up to Graça church, following
an indication sign post. Next to the Graça, there was a beautiful façade
with turquoise blue tiles of the Villa Sousa.
And again, a stunning view over Lisbon and the Castelo San Jorge.
I have discovered this city for the first time, Lisboa or Lisbon is such a charming city. I was impressed by the beauty of the buildings, churches, the azulejos facades made of colorful tiles. Portugese food is also wonderful, especially seafood, and the pastry shops are one of the best attractions of the town. The famous Pasteis de Nata is a must there, you can't leave Lisboa without tasting this flan with crispy contour dessert which is simply delicious.
Here is the Baixa Chiado neighborhood where i stayed at, a very nice and animated part of Lisbon, with clothes boutiques, ceramics, shoe shops, the Fnac, pastry shops and even a Nespresso boutique.
Not to forget the "A Brasileira" famous café, art deco design, and the bronze statue of Pessoa, a famous poet & writer which has become a tourists' attraction.
Every tourist who visits Lisbon has to take a picture with Pessoa's statue, so did i. :-)
The Pasteis de Nata is a delicious flan-like dessert, the one in the middle of the above picture.
