Vintage shopping in East London

Found.Loved
82 Cheshire St.
























Found.Loved is a small romantic retro vintage boutique in Brick Lane. It was an accidental discovery for me, while I was trying to find Beyond Retro (another vintage shop in the area, check below). But, a cat statue in the window display and a super cute playsuit with a peter pan collar, quickly persuaded me to enter this adorable shop. Apparently, I made the right choice.






Beyond Retro
110-112 Cheshire St.
























Beyond retro is a quite famous vintage shop in London with a great variety of clothes in very affordable prices. In fact, there are three different shops in London, and many others in UK and Sweden. But, the great news are that an online shop is also available for all of those who don't live either in UK or Sweden.

So, I was beyond excited to visit one of their shops in Brick Lane. Well, the truth is that my expectations were completely fulfilled.

Jardim Botânico da Universidade de Lisboa


When i was in Lisbon, almost one month ago, i couldn't help but visit its Botanical Garden. Jardim Botânico da Universitade de Lisboa is located somewhere between Rato, Principe Real and Restauradores. The garden contains lots of global plants, trees and seeds, and the Museum of Natural History and Science. If you ever visit Lisbon, grab a cup of cool lemonade, stroll beside the palm trees and have your very own Vasco Da Gama exploratory moments.

Cats love Tease





Here in Cats Love Athens, we are known for maintaining a loyal relationship with beautiful bakeries and pastry shops. While i was in Lisbon some days ago, i was strolling somewhere near Rossio, quite close to the Botanical Garden , in the Praça das Flores, when i found the cutest pastry shop in Lisbon. Its name is Tease.
















Tease has a big variety of cupcakes, tarts, yummy cakes, great coffee and basically anything anyone would want for breakfast. The cupcakes are filled with fruit flavors such as mango and its sandwitches are what champions should have for breakfast.




I went there almost every day i was in Lisbon and my days there started in the best possible way. If you ever find yourselves in Lisbon, you should definitely pay it a visit.

Once upon a time in a cat cafe

























A few days ago, I had the chance to visit the marvelous "Lady Dinah's cat emporium" cat cafe in East London. As you are all aware of we are huge cat lovers and this cafe had to be our ultimate tea-time destination. Well, I have to admit that this place, which combines fluffy cats with tea and tasty cakes is indeed the best cafe that I have ever visited.
  

























































Our 1h 30 minutes visit included a lot of cat strokes, games with the cats, bird watching, drinking tea and eating yummy cakes. It was a truly unforgettable experience.
