SF Diaries: Espaços de Co-Working

Olá pessoal, Hoje vou falar de espaços de co-working! Não sei se também é moda em Portugal, mas por aqui quem não trabalha ou não trabalhou num espaço de co-working é uma vez mais considerado uma espécie rara. Quem é não tem flexibilidade ou o seu próprio negócio para trabalhar a partir de onde quiser?…

SF Diaries: Uma Conferência de Bros

Ora cá vamos nós a mais uma crónica por estas terras interessantes… Afinal não só as senhoras que protagonizam histórias engraçadas. O mesmo acontece com os senhores 😂 Ora portanto, entre reuniões e a adaptação ao novo trabalho ia a Joana, depois de uma reunião no Google em Mountain View, a caminho de uma VC…

SF Diaries: Falas Silicon Valleyês?

Olá pessoal, Parte da integração da Tuga no ecossistema de Silicon Valley passou por aprender a falar. Pois é! Ao que parece eu até falo Português e Inglês, mas de certeza que não falava Silicon Valleyês. Há toda uma série de palavras e terminologias que se não forem usadas diariamente, o comum residente desta zona…

Feminism – Are we really helping each other?

Hey folks, In a time when the dialogue about wrongdoing, sexual harassment, overpower and women’s rights, is served for breakfast nearly everyday, I decided to challenge my train of thought by watching the new Netflix show, The Cable Girls. If you haven’t heard about this show, I may warn you that it must be one…

SF Diaries: Uma Portuguesa na Marina

Olá a todos, Nesta nova série do blog vou escrever em português, não só porque tenho saudades da nossa língua mas porque há coisas que só o Tuga com os seus maneirismos entenderá 😉 Vamos começar pelo início desta aventura em terras Americanas, quando nos mudámos em Julho passado, nada mais nada menos para a…

Healthy Brunch: Mushroom Omelette

Hi folks! Since the MBA is over I’ve been focusing on my health and nutrition again!

New meal plan and fitness routine

Madrid me gusta!

Hello everybody! I have a confession to make… I love Madrid! Madrid is a happy place and I enjoy every single hour I get to spend in the city – Yes I always take the last flight home on Sunday evenings. Last month my parents joined me in the city for a short break while…

Spinach Pancakes for Sunday Brunch

Hello everybody! I have started a new nutrition programme, tailored for my current needs as I had to increase the daily intake of omega fats. Working full-time and studying an MBA degree, requires a lot of commitment, discipline and focus on health and well-being (which I often neglect with the excuse of a busy agenda) and…

Global Citizenship

Hello everybody, Going home after each face to face period in Madrid becomes harder and harder as I miss the creative environment of the think tank promoted by IE Business School. An MBA is not only a degree in which we learn the beautiful world of finances and accounting. In fact, Business School is truly…
