vogue magazine sure knows how to take us on a trip. i love when they do epic editorials with a beautiful model, a handsome companion, both wearing chic clothes, running around a wonderful destination.

on my travel wish list is going on a trip to portugal, hoping to get there this year. i’m absolutely enthralled with blue and white portuguese tiles and ceramics. i’ve been reading up on portugal and cant wait to experience the culture, the shopping, the lifestyle and the beauty.

in a recent issue of vogue, we were taken on a trip to portugal with model gigi hadid and actor domhall gleeson (did you see him in the movie brooklyn? the best movie of the year- amazing!) photographed by the brilliant steven meisel. we were taken to some amazing sites in portal, portugal. from the historic Igreja de Carmo and Sé de Porto Theatre, both known for their iconic blue and white portguese tiles, to the modern architecture of casa fez, Casa de Musica and the Serralves Foundation, to the color and the fun of the Reibera Square.

i can’t wait to get to portugal, now i know where to go- who wants to go with me? thank you vogue for taking us on another beautiful trip! apreciar!
