Dina and Olga came to London. Dina and Olga fell in love with London. Dina and Olga decided to bring Portugal to London. And so, A Portuguese Love Affair was born. Basically, there's a lot of love in this gorgeous little shop and a lot of sunshine. Although on the day I visit, Dina and Olga admit to feeling a little bit foggy after one of their monthly wine tastings which was held the night before (follow them on Facebook
to make sure you don't miss one) Their enthusiasm for the brands they stock, both old and new, is palpable but what unites this wonderfully curated collection is the beautiful packaging design of every single item. I want to buy pretty much everything in the shop from the flor de sal to the soap and the tooth paste to the sardines; it's a great place for picking up gifts (for others and of course yourself). Come, fall in love with a piece of Portugal.
