Name: Nomita

Your city: London, GB

+ What best describes summer for you?

My home, India. There is nothing like summer in India with the scorching sun staring down at you, at times far too hot but it always makes you feel happy.

+ What is your preferred holiday destination?

Beautiful Tuscany
I love to visit new places every time I go on holiday so I rarely visit the same place twice. But the one place I would like to spend many more summers in is Tuscany, under the beautiful Tuscan sun. The food, the drink, the scenery and the beautiful sunshine come together to entice all the senses.

+ Preferred summer food and drink?

Parma ham, mozarella, extra virgin olive oil, cold soba noodles, middle eastern mezzes, bhel (an indian street food)… the list is endless for a foodie like me. To drink I’m partial to a super chilled glass of Prosecco or a full fat coke with lots of ice.

+ What is your favourite summer outfit for your kids this season?

My current favourite is this floral printed strappy top by Monamici. It looks super sweet on… so simple yet so stylish.

+ Top baby/ kids sun cream?

I use Nivea Sun Kids

+ What do you recommend us to do in your city during summer with kids?

I now live in London and it’s a fabulous place to be in the summer (as long as it doesn’t rain of course!) especially in August when everyone else is on holiday. I recommend picnics in any of the fabulous parks, boat rides on the river Thames, a trip to London Zoo and eating al-fresco.

+ Your all time summer hit?

This is hard but I’ll say Girl from Ipanema as it was the first song that came to my mind.

Summer with Daniela from Loja Dada {a series}

Name: Daniela
Your shop: Loja Dada
Hometown: Lisbon, Portugal

+ What best describes summer for you

Long days, beach, pink sunsets, going to the park after school until late, open windows, bare feet, family summer vacation, ice cream, cherries, strawberries!

+ What is your preferred holiday destination?

Portugal ! Try coming over one day, we have great cities and fantastic countryside, the beaches are
amazing, very different from north to south, there is something for each taste!

+ Preferred summer food and drink?

Tabbouleh, hummus, Greek salad (and all kind of other snacks), frizzante with mint and fresh peaches!
And of course grilled sardines, local specialty!

+ What is your favourite summer outfit for your kids this season?

For my daughter, she is 2 and a half, comfortable clothes that are still cute and of course eco-conscious, from carefully chosen brands.
From my shop, I love the Mini Rodini collection: Multi panda wing tshirt, Map Dress, Black Panther
Tshirt, Bobo Choses all of it but skirts and shorts are top, Lola for Kids red dotted skirt, and so many
more! Thinks about what looks the cutest on her, definitely the red dotted Lola for Kids Skirt!

+ Top baby/ kids sun cream?

We use Anthelios by La Roche Posay. If you just go to the supermarket, Nivea Kids is also not bad.

+ What do you recommend us to do in your city during summer with kids?

First of all: rent a car! Check out one of the many beaches around Lisbon: there are really lots of
them! In case you want to do that, rent a car for getting there. By public transport it would be long and difficult. But choose them well, not all equally nice!

In the city, go to the Oceanarium. Walk by the river in Belem! Go to Sintra, specially on hot days, it’s
green, magical, romantic and fresh! Stay cool! Enjoy! By the way, did you know that many of the world best hostels are in Lisbon? And most of them are not party hostels, but great hostels you can stay at, in your own room, for a nice stay in Lisbon with family? And buy Timeout Lisbon for visitor: always the best information on nice things to do in and around Lisbon.

+ Your all time summer hit?

What’s that? Don’t ask me that…
{Thank you Daniela}
