Garbo And Friends : Poetry In Your Nursery

Garbo and friends

I like baby brands that are poetic and leave fantasy open-ended in a style conscious way. I also like soft pale colors for nurseries in order to create an instantly soothing atmosphere. Because, well, when you have a newborn and when you are going to spend a lot of time in his/her room it is exactly what you need: a place that will give you and your baby some calm and will engage your imagination. Garbo and Friends offers just that in the most sophisticated way.

Life At Your Own Risk

Street Art in Malaysia - Photo Christopher Jobson

One of the things I love about living in Portugal is that the Health & Safety Police have not yet made inroads on the territory. Swimming in the Atlantic, walking along sea cliffs in Alentejo, bathing in the mountain streams of Burgo are all at your own risk.
