one second everyday — march 2017

it’s the last day of april already, and march seems like years away… but it’s still sitting on my phone, so here it goes:

it was pretty low-key as months go — but a great one at that, if that makes any sense. we spent time with friends, celebrated birthdays, went to concerts, spiralised all the things, did some nice interviews and giveaways on the blog… oh, and admired p.’s beard, which was huge! :D


11 years of us

here’s to a lifetime of adventures together! :)

the days are longer, the sun shines and we breathe a sigh of relief. this is definitely the best part of the year.


folar de olhão

folar is a traditional portuguese easter cake — the equivalent to hot cross buns. there are several different types of folar here in algarve, but they’re usually a layered cake, cooked in small pots. they do a delicious version of it in olhão that is so good they sell it year-round in supermarkets!

granted, it doesn’t look like much from the outside, but when you slice through it…

… magic! layers over layers of moist cinnamon-y goodness, compacted over time under a thick syrup. it might be ugly, but it’s oh-so-good. don’t knock it until you try it!
