What have I seen this week?
A portuguese MC battle thats what.
What I have been listening to whilst consuming cereal.
Yes, I have managed to go a week without cooking. Dark, dark, Special K fuelled times for me.
I defy you not to like to this song:
In portugal you are about as likely to encounter indoor heating as you are a unicorn.
To keep warm I have been drinking buckets of tea and day dreaming of fantastic pijamas.
In the library I spotted an exhibition of drawings that were simply beautiful.
Portuguese facts of the day:
There are 5 ways to say 'cool'
- Cinco Estrelas
- But if your Brazilian you say 'Ligão'
Last weekend I made a silent vow, I am not buying any more clothes for at least a month! I don’t spend a lot of money on clothes, but my closet is pretty packed, so I try to restrain myself, every once in a while. In the meantime, I can get my shopping, and eating kicks, between the pages of Fulvio Bonavia’s photography book A Matter of Taste. In the book, Bonavia combines fashion and food by recreating classic accessories out of edible parts. Among Bonavia’s creations are a pair of chocolate earrings, a blueberry handbag, and a sardine bracelet. It’s an incredibly creative undertaking full of color and humor. I love it! I’ve only included the dessert-related images in this post, but you really should head over to his site to check out the additional photos. The prosciutto (?) ring is a must see . . . although I’m still not certain if it’s made out prosciutto or something else! [Thanks, Cassie!]

Clouds. How nice! I stole this photo from Ryan Mcginleys website. Obrigada Ryan.
Terry Richardson's halloween costume. Cinco estrelas.
Politically incorrect italians. Amazing. I said, 'be japanese', everybody else seemed to get the peace fingers idea, minus Giulia who went for the more old-school japanese look. Oh dear.
Terrible photo of an amazing subject. A violet haired elderly asian lady wearing a sars mask. Style Alert! My smile grew after this shot as she proceeded to whip off her mask and smoke a fag.
What is this be-hatted tourist papping? What does he see? Hmmmm..
Japanese Warriors of course! Its Porto´s Japan week. Kawaii!!
After watching the warriors shooting (which is only impressive if you like really loud noises. To be honest, no soy un fan), I went to my favourite library. Ok, that is incredibly geeky, but it is pink and is surrounded by peacocks- whats not to like?! I then read for a solid TWENTY minutes, felt like my brain was going to crash, and decided I would amble around the Palacio's gardens snapping away at the statues. Productive-não, Pretty- sim, sim, sim.
All the gatos giros* wear chinese slippers.
*Gatos Giros= Cool Cats (one of my favourite ever cheesy phrases, often uttered by the legendary fresher crasher Adam Norwood. Respect Adam.)
