flower power

my jaws drop every single time i go to republica das flores for flowers, they have the most beautiful flower arrangements and do it perfect every time. plus, they have a gazillion other temptations to shop – candles, jewellery, scarves and even bikinis.

if i get married one day i know for sure who’s doing the flower decorations!
