Promoções Benetton chiado

by Be-Blogger Portugal on: Dezembro 26th, 2012

Acabou o Natal, farófias e bolo-rei, e começou a loucura dos saldos!

Nesta época se formos bem preparados, conseguimos poupar um montante significativo e com alguma paciência consegue as peças que sempre quis por preços incríveis.

No Chiado, a loja da Benetton já lançou o desafio e muitas das nossas roupas preferidas para este inverno encontram-se a preços imbatíveis.

Fomos dar uma vista de olhos e tirar algumas fotografias, nesta época de loucura é importante estar inspirada e determinar aquilo que realmente precisamos e fica bem no nosso closet, às vezes com a ilusão dos preços baixos acabamos por comprar peças que não nos fazem faltam, ou não gostamos assim tanto…

Todas e todos querem ser os primeiros a chegar, muitas vezes já está tudo escolhido e acabamos por levar números acima, ou abaixo ou aquela cor que gostamos menos, nesta loja do Chiado ainda encontramos uma loja arrumada e colorida que desperta mais ainda a vontade de comprar!

É sem dúvida uma oportunidade para comprar as peças-chave, aquelas que irão preencher o seu armário e subir a qualidade – um pós natal Benetton.

Bom ANO 2013

 Carnaval de Torres Vedras

by Be-Blogger Portugal on: Fevereiro 22nd, 2012

Contrastando com as temperaturas mais baixas que o costume, o mês de Fevereiro é sem dúvida um dos meses mais coloridos e quentes em Portugal. Com o Dia dos Namorados e o Carnaval a acontecer muito próximos um dos outro, existem muitas razões para celebrar as cores da vida, da alegria e do amor!

Com as origens que remontam à Grécia Antiga, o espírito contagiante do Carnaval espalhou-se pelos quatro cantos do mundo, adaptando-se às várias realidades sociais e culturais. Os exemplos mais mediáticos internacionalmente são o Carnaval do Rio, o Carnaval de Veneza ou o Mardi Gras de Nova Orleães. No entanto há tradições de Carnaval em muitos locais de Portugal. Assim hoje dedicamo-nos ao carismático Carnaval de Torres Vedras – O Mais Português de Portugal.

Fortemente inspirado pelo teatro, o Carnaval de Torres utiliza a máscara como um pretexto não só para transformar e quebrar as regras vigentes, mas também para inverter a ordem social e desafiar os dogmas.

Para além dos tradicionais cabeçudos e carros alegóricos, as ‘’matrafonas’’ (homens disfarçados de mulher) por sua vez são um dos ícones mais marcantes do Carnaval de Torres, que para além de serem um forte elemento satírico, demonstram ainda a capacidade de renovação mantendo-se fiéis à tradição.

O Carnaval de Torres tem um ambiente único, com as suas próprias regras e as suas próprias tradições. Este é um Carnaval diferente, destinado às pessoas que não têm receio de desafiar as regras. Assim neste dia tão divertido em todo o mundo dedicamos o nosso artigo a esta tradição portuguesa cheia de cor e diversidade porque … É Carnaval e Ninguém Leva a Mal!

 Miradouros. Lisbon on another perspective

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Junho 15th, 2010

Summer arrives and Lisbon fills itself with sights, light and people that reveal bodies (trained all winter for it), smiles and a lot of style. On a city with such a river front centrality, the Miradouros are the highlight of this summer city. But what is a Miradouro? It is a square, a garden, or a wider area on the sidewalk, that is located on a high point of the city and that allows to see a magnificent view over the city and the landscape. It’s almost a belvedere, but it is so Portuguese that we preferred not to translate it.

Many of Miradouros were regenerated recently, and are nowadays privileged places in old part of town. Talking, sun bathing, relaxing, reading a book or just meeting with friends in cafes, terraces or gardens are just a few of the many activities that on these hot summer days and nights, many of us prefer to do on these places.


But Miradouros are very special places that turn on a One of a Kind European Capital. Some have little terraces, others are more popular and have bigger cafes, but all have one thing in common: allowing to look at the city from above, sitting comfortably on a terrace and enjoy one of the best things of Lisbon, its hills and urban landscape, always with Tagus River in the end.

But the most popular aspect of Miradouros are the terraces. All the major Miradouros have a place where one can have a coffee and look at the city enjoying the sunset light and colors. Here are three suggestions for those who are coming to Lisbon.

When facing the river, you have a little gate on the left side of the garden area, get in and go down the stairs and you’ll be in Noobai Cafe. This is the underground Miradouro of Lisbon. You can find old hippies, that now have children, the Bairro Alto fauna, but during daytime, and not so young ones, but alternative yuppies. Un oasis in the middle of the city where you can drink a perfect caipirinha and eat exquisite and refined chicken avocado toasts.

The next Miradouro is the well known and very famous Miradouro da Graca. Since the 90s, here is opened one of the hippest late afternoon summer drink hotspots. Intellectuals, connoisseurs and some young and older artists gather here from 14.00 to 02.00 to enjoy one evolving city at their feet. From mid day Sunlight to min night Moonlight, the view from Miradouro da Graca’s terrace is astonishing!

The third and last Miradouro that we highlight here is the very much unknown Miradouro do Jardim do Boto. Just behind the Sao Vicente de Fora Convent, and beside Santa Clara market, this just remodeled Miradouro has its strongest element the proximity of the National Pantheon and the Alfama and Tagus river landscape. There you can find a new small terrace to enjoy this national monument and the (omnipresent) Tagus river.

Three very different Miradouros, that look the city on different perspectives, but that all have one thing in common: Lisbon, the City of the Hills and Tagus River in all its charm and uniqueness.


Miradouros are the hotspot of summer late afternoons in Lisbon!

 Rock in Rio turns 25 in Lisbon

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Maio 28th, 2010

Rock in Rio is a series of rock festivals held for the first time in Brazil back in 1980, and later in Portugal since 2004 (and Spain since 2008). It has been the largest rock festival in the world: 1.5 million people in the first edition, 700 thousand in the second, about 1.2 million in the third, and about 350 thousand people in each of the 3 Lisbon editions.

The 4th edition in Lisbon is happening on the 21, 22, 27, 29 and 30 of May. During these days the “City of Rock” will receive artists from all kinds of music and among all we can especially attend to the concerts of Shakira, Elton John, Muse, Miley Cyrus and Rammstein.

Everyday is a special day with a special guest. However, there is one day in this edition that represents a lot more to the organization and to the audience. On the 22nd of May Rock in Rio turns 25. These 25 years of existence represent also 25 years of the rock history and in order to remember it the organization of the festival invited important names of the music world as Elton John, Leona Lewis and the portuguese band Trovante.

Besides the biggest performances at the World Stage, there is another stage for smaller concerts and to artists share music experiences, the Sunset Stage, a space to dance all night long, the Electronic Tent, and a lot of other activities to amuse visitors.

The world’s biggest and best music festival is rocking in Lisbon and our blog is covering the event LIVE!

 Bairo Alto is THE Place in Lisbon

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Maio 3rd, 2010

Where differences live in harmony, the avanguard style meets the more traditional neighborhood: we are talking of BA – The Bairro Alto in Lisbon!The Bairro Alto is a very typical area of Lisbon with narrow and steep streets, right in the heart of the city, and with many stories to tell.

In this neighborhood used to be located the most important national newspaper headquarters, but when the modern era arrived, the urban decay installed and came the suspicious Fado Houses, with their popular clientele and the less intellectual fauna. In the 80’s Bairro Alto was a place of bad name and infamous ambiance, protitution, drugs and alcohol of all sorts thrived on the street corners. But intellectuals adopted the neigborhood and made this area its bohemian refuge from the busy yupy city in the 90’s.

Nowadays there still exist a lot of signs of those bad name days, but young people have now flooded the neighborhood. The country cultural elite, intellectuals, artists, young students and a all new bohemian generation flows frequently (if not every day, at least once a week) to these streets.

On a achieved and successful merger you find on the same streets shops of the best fashion designers and labels and neighborhood traditional corner stores. Theatres and the traditional Fado Houses, restaurants and the trendyest hairdressers, reggae bars and refined wine tasting places… Bairro Alto is the place to project bold and contemporary.

When the night falls one can find the best of each style, the streets fill with people that comes here to chat with friends, have a drink on the street and dance on local clubs. Bairro Alto is thus the meeting point of spaces, people and style

Bairro Alto is Then The most cosmopolite place in modern Lisbon!

 Springtime in Lisbon

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Abril 10th, 2010

The shops, the people, the public gardens and mostly the streets gain a new life when the spring time arrives to the city. Spring is here and we like it!

I believe that in every city in the world Spring turns cities merrier and with it’s life throbbing from everywhere, but in Lisbon we do have something that no other city has: a combination of factors that turns this European Capital Unique!

I’ll explain … The fact that we have many kms of beautiful white sanded beaches just besides the city center, the fact that we have the widest river estuary in Europe – the river Tagus at Lisbon area, in certain points, reaches 22 km wide – and the fact that all the city is developed on hills (allowing you to always have a view over the city and the river), makes Lisbon a unique place to witness the change of Winter into Spring.

And one more aspect makes all these aspects special – Lisbon’s White Light. Antonio Tabucchi (an Italian writer) called Lisbon “The White City”. He even wrote a novel under this title, and a film was made from it (Love the film by the way …).

More unique than any monument, any neighbourhood, any place or cafè, any pastery or delicatessen, any garden or person is Lisbon’s White Light. The sun is our major ally on diferenciating our city from the others. Lisbon (as I usually say to my foreign friends) is the only capital city in Europe, where you can live with all the commodities and all the cultural benifits of a European Capital, and at the same time have the white sunny light of far away and exotic hot beaches. Better even… you have those beaches on a 20 min ride from Lisbon center!

Want better? Imagine better situation than living on a major European Capital with wonderful beaches at you door step? And with lots of hot sun to go with it?

OK … one last metaphor: cross Rio de Janeiro beach mood with historical heritage of Rome and the nice, alternative and civilized mood of Barcelona… and you’ll have – LISBON!

Now do you understand why Spring in Lisbon is Special?

 Portuguese style at its best

by United Blogs of Benetton on: Março 29th, 2010

As one of the oldest independent fashion weeks in the world, ModaLisboa, is the biggest fashion event in Portugal……and one of the best places to find the best of the Portuguese Style.

Crossing fashion (not only in the catwalks, but also in the audience) with graphic design, interior architecture, food design, music, photography and other art forms, after 5 editions that took place in Estoril, this last edition (that happened between 11th and 14th of March) signaled the long awaited return of ModaLisboa to its home city: Lisboa.

Urban Style flood the locations. Urban People became part of a new great fashion moment. Urban Cosmopolitism was the key note that, once again, toned the ModaLisboa and conducted the Portuguese Designers Collection Presentations.


When fashionistas cross with international journalists, national media, buyers and VIPs, you are sure that it is a fashion week. When you have the ModaLisboa seal on it… it is definatly the best of the Made in Portugal Style!

This was …And This is Reality, reporting from ModaLisboa with Photos of ModaLisboa Archive and Joao Bacelar.
