Fashion // Floral Crowns

Image
After all this time, I felt in love with this trend. It's not the more versatile accessory at all, but it has a je ne sais quoi of special, giving a ethereal touch to the person who wears it. I prefer the most discrete ones, with flowers of the same color, as the pictures above. I've seen many DIYs tutorials and I'm tempted to give it a try, but I'm so lazy, I think I'll end of doing nothing.
Pois é, rendi-me a esta tendência. Não acho que seja de todo o acessório mais versátil, mas tem um je ne sais quoi de especial, dando a quem o usa um certo toque etéreo. Tenho uma especial preferência pelas mais discretas e com flores da mesma cor, como nas fotos acima. Já andei a ver inúmeros tutoriais de DIYs, mas vou sempre adiando, estou mesmo a ver que vai chegar o Inverno e eu sem ter feito nenhuma.  Esta Quinta-feira começa a Viagem Medieval em Santa Maria da Feira e talvez compre uma por lá, todos os anos vejo lá imensas, estão por todo o lado. Convido-vos a todas a v…

Keep Calm and Eat Chocolate

Image
Top & Belt - Bershka | Skirt - Mango | Necklace - Volta e Meia
Now that I'm on vacations, my boyfriend (aka my photographer) isn't always available for taking me  pretty pictures to post here, so I have to do it myself, so the result isn't so good. The next ones will be better!
Liked my necklace? If you are a fan of the "Keep calm" trend, you should visit this page, you'll find many necklaces, bracelets and rings up like this. I love chocolate, so I chose this necklace for me, but I wouldn't mind having one of each.


Agora que estou de férias, o meu fotógrafo habitual, o namorado, não tem tanta disponibilidade para tirar fotos bonitas para eu aqui colocar, por isso tenho que me remediar sozinha. Isto de tirar fotos a mim própria tem muito que se lhe diga, então estas fotos não saíram grande coisa.  Gostaram do meu colar? Todas as fãs da máxima Keep Calm deviam visitar esta página, vão encontrar muitos colares, pulseiras e até anéis deste género.Como eu s…

Details // Nails & Notebooks

Image
Ring  & Notebook - Pampa Mia
Always had the habit of making lists. I make lists for everything: what to buy, chores to do, DIYs to make, posts to write here, and so on. Decided to condense all my lists in one notebook and this one was the chosen one. Its size is ideal to put in my bag and got a super cute cover. In another matter, did you like my nails? Used duct tape to give the triangular shape, must admit it takes a lot of patience.
Desde que me lembro sempre tive a mania de fazer listas. Faço listas para tudo: o que comprar, tarefas a fazer, DIYs que quero executar, posts que quero escrever aqui no blog, and so on. O problema é que depois não sei onde tenho determinada lista,  porque estão todas espalhadas por infinitos blocos. Decidi então condensar todas as minhas listas num único caderno e este, da Pampa Mia, foi o escolhido. O seu tamanho é ideal para pôr na mala e a capa é super cute.  Noutro assunto, gostaram das minhas unhas? Utilizei fita-cola para dar aquela forma tria…

Fashion Review // Coco Avant Chanel

Image
Saw the movie for the second time this week and loved it, just like the first time. Needless to say the wardrobe is excellent, wasn't it about one of the best designers the world has known.
The film doesn't focus much on the rise of Coco Chanel in the fashion world, but in the early days, when she worked as a seamstress/cabaret singer. Don't really know how far the film is truly faithful to the biography of Coco, but the important thing here isn't the story itself but the characters, as these are what make the movie standout. Audrey Tautou was able to distance herself completely from Amelie and played a brilliant Coco, full of personality. Besides all this, she sings / dances some super funny cabaret songs that I'm always humming around the house (see here my favorite).
For those who love fashion and this particular stylist, it's definitely a must see.

Vi o filme pela segunda vez esta semana e adorei, tal como da primeira. Escusado será dizer que o guarda-roupa é…

What I wore today - White Dress & Blue Envelope Clutch

Image
Dress  - Bershka | Clutch - Oasap | Belt - Primark | Necklace & bracelet - Pampa Mia

Finally got the clutch I've been wanting for months, courtesy of Oasap. Immediatly took her for a little stroll outside. I'm crazy for bags, it's the first thing that get's my eye when shopping. This one will make me happy a happy gal for a while.
Another thing I got (bit spoiled this week, must say) was this necklace and bracelet from Pampa Mia, plus some stuff I'll show on another occasion. I really appreciate discrete accessories, details that doesn't scream for attention, but are noticed only after a closer look. These pieces won me by its simplicity. That heart on the necklace with the inscription Made with love is simply lovely.
Ignore the ugly cross tattoo, which says "I need to be retouched.". One of several teenage mistakes.
Finalmente tive a clutch que queria há meses, cortesia da Oasap. Lá veio ela, toda perfeitinha, e eu levei-a logo a passear. Eu sou mal…

Lifestyle // Summer Festival

Image
This Friday I went to a music festival to see one of my favorite bands: Gogol Bordello. They put up a great show, everyone was jumping and dancing around! Surely one of my favorite concerts. 
Billy Idol performed too and gave a nice show too, Sweet Sixteen was an epic moment. It's always cool to hear some good old rock and this sir is indeed very charismatic on stage. He appeared with a spiked leather jacket that would leave many fashionistas jealous. Then a endless variety of clothes between songs, he kept changing. Funny thing when he switched to a t-shirt with his own face printed on it (faception?), Mr. Billy has one of the most gigantic egos I managed to witness.
Esta sexta-feira fui ao festival Marés Vivas para assistir a uma das minhas bandas favoritas: Gogol Bordello. Foi uma verdadeira festa, nunca estive num concerto tão animado, toda a gente dançava e cantava, eu fiquei a suar em cinto minutos! Seguramente um dos meus concertos favoritos.  Também assisti a Billy Idol, qu…

Drawing of myself, by Nicol

Image
Remember this post? I shared with you the work of Nicol, she draws beautiful illustrations and I think she's an amazing talent. Was surprised when I saw she drew me, the illustration is so cute, loved it so much! Thank you Nicol, you made my day.
Lembram-se deste post? Nele manifestei a minha admiração pelas ilustrações da Nicol, acho-a muito talentosa e adoro o estilo de desenho dela. Fui surpreendida com este trabalho em que ela me desenhou a mim, escusado será dizer que adorei! Obrigado Nicol, isto fez-me ganhar o dia.

Diy // Hair clip with pearls

Image
A simple hair clip, half cut pearls, a little bit of glue and voilá. I have a new pearl accessory. This one comes in handy to wear with my dresses.
Um travessão simples, meias pérolas, um pouquinho de cola e voilá. Mais um acessório de pérolas para mim. Este vai dar muito jeito para andar com os meus vestidinhos.

12 fonts for feminine blogs

Image
1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12
Searching for fonts is always annoying. Sometimes I get tired of my blog's header but I'm just too lazy to search for a suitable new font so I end up doing nothing. Thinking that you could suffer from the same laziness, I made a selection of cute fonts for headings and titles. I tried to vary between serif and sans serif, some are more minimalist, others more girlie, so there's something for everyone.
If you like them, you can download these for free, just click the corresponding number.


Procurar tipos de letras é sempre chato. Às vezes canso-me do cabeçalho do blog, mas só a preguiça de encontrar um tipo de letra adequado me deixa sem vontade de fazer um novo. Pensando que vocês poderiam sofrer do mesmo mal, fiz uma selecção de fontes apropriadas para cabeçalhos e títulos. Tentei variar entre serifadas e não serifadas, umas são mais  minimalistas, outras mais girlie, por isso há para todos os gostos. Caso gostem duma ou outra,…

Fashion // Ankle Cuffs

Image
I've been in love with this trend for a long time now. Want some to myself asap, I can imagine using them in every way, with heels, ballerinas, with black tights... 
Ando perdida de amores por esta tendência. A primeira foto que eu vi com cuffs douradas nos tornozelos foi amor à primeira vista e olhem que isto já foi há muito tempo e o amor continua. Consigo-me imaginar a usá-las de todas as maneiras, com saltos, sabrinas, com collants pretos... tenho mesmo que arranjar umas.

Lifestyle // Buns & Arrows

Image
Finally made the donut bun I wanted to do for so long, only now I was able to handle the ring that shapes the hair this way, it took several attempts until I could make a decent bun. In other matters, me and my boyfriend decided to try a new sport: archery. The bow is bigger than me, apparently my 50 kg don't give me much confidence to rise the bow, stretch the string and aim at the same time, but it's quite amusing and 50% of the time I manage hit the target. That blue ugly thing on my arm is merely for protection purposes.
Finalmente pude fazer o donut bun que queria há muito tempo, só agora é que consegui atinar com o anel que molda a forma, foram precisas inúmeras tentativas até conseguir fazer um coque decente. Noutros assuntos, eu e o namorado decidimos experimentar uma nova modalidade desportiva: tiro com arco.  O arco é maior que eu e os meus 50 kg não me dão muita força para pegar no arco, esticar a corda e fazer pontaria ao mesmo tempo, mas é engraçado e 50% das vezes …

Girlie dress & Vintage Scarf

Image
Dress - Primark | Ballerinas - Marypaz | Scarf - Vintage | Bag - Lefties

It was a rainy day, so I left the shorts aside and went back to my favorite clothing: dresses. I would like to wear heels more often but you saw that sidewalk? It's impossible to walk around here in heels without looking like I'm not gonna fall. So I wear the good old ballerinas. Now I remembered that this week I went see a few stores to take a look at the promotions and, as always, my attention was drawn to the new collections. I saw a pair of loafers and it was love at first sight. Strictly platonic, my bank account is pretty shaken up by the last year of university.

Hoje o tempo não estava convidativo, por isso deixei os calções de lado e voltei à minha peça de eleição: vestidos. Gostava de usar saltos altos mais vezes, mas já nem gasto dinheiro com eles. Acho que o motivo está bem à vista: já viram aquela calçada? É impossível andar ali de saltos sem parecer que não estou em perigo eminente de queda. Po…

Fashion // Awesome dress is awesome

Image
I'm not a big fan of heavy prints, but this dress is a true work of art. It reminds me of Baroque paintings. In fact, the entire collection (see here) is fantastic! Romantic, with lots of black and gold and classy prints, very Baroque style.

Eu nem sou muito de estampados demasiado carregados, mas este vestido é uma verdadeira obra de arte. Transporta-me imediatamente para as pinturas da época barroca. Aliás, toda a colecção (podem ver aqui) está fantástica! Romântica, com muito preto e dourado e exageradamente ornamentada, bem ao estilo Barroco.

Fashion Review // Cry Baby

Image
A musical that portrays the rebellious youth of the 50's, with a good old Rock n 'Roll sound. A very young Johnny Depp impersonates Cry Baby, a very attractive and seductive bad boy. This one will fall in love with Alison, a "square", who will go from good girl to rebel, when in company of Cry Baby's gang. The key piece in this film is, par excellence, the famous black leather jacket, a symbol of rebellion immortalized by James Dean. This was used by men in conjunction with their hair pulled back, with a slight stern. The pin-up style is present, mainly in the sexy Wanda (first image). She wears bangs, cay eye, red lipstick, tight dresses and scarfs around her neck. This period of independence, emancipation and freedom is shown in a satirical tone that distinguishes this movie from others. Besides that, there is Johnny Depp, which in itself is already a guarantee of quality. I highly recommend.
Um musical que retrata a juventude rebelde dos anos 50, ao som dogood old …

Diy // top & shorts

Image
What you're seeing here is basically the way I dress every time I go to the beach: shorts and a top. Had this top at home that I didn't use because it's was too large and long, so I decided to make this DIY I found here. It was a tedious process because I had to cut several thin strips of fabric and I hate cutting fabric. But in the end, liked the result. It shows skin, but not too much. It didn't become as tight as it was supposed to be because the top was too large still, but I prefer it this way, because the strips are not stretched and the overall effect is better. If you want to give it a try, the tutorial is very explicit. Attention: The total number of strips you cut out, must be even.

O que estão a ver é basicamente a forma como me visto cada vez que vou para a praia: uns calções curtos e um top.  Tinha este top lá em casa que não usava por ser demasiado largo e comprido, por isso decidi fazer esta DIY que vi aqui. Foi um processo demorado e aborrecido, porque ti…

Yummy! // Pizza Cupcakes

Image
Pizza Cupcakes Ingredients: Pizza dough Tomato sauce Mozzarella cheese Ham Mushrooms Corn Pineapple Tomato Fresh basil
Place the dough in each mold. (keep in mind you need to use butter or other fat before placing it, to have no problems unmolding the pizza cupcakes when cooked). After this, put some tomato sauce on each, followed by mozzarella cheese, sliced ham, sliced mushrooms, corn, sliced tomatoes and basil. These ingredients may vary depending on the taste of each. Feel free to add other stuff, like onion or pepperoni.  Then, just put in the oven until the cheese melt (approximately 20, 30 minutes). After taking the pizzas from the oven, let them cool slightly and then unmold.
This is a simple recipe and a very cool idea to do at dinner parties with friends.

Denim & Flatforms

Image
Shirt - Stradivarius | Shorts - Local store | Shoes - Seaside | Sunglasses - Party Glasses
Not happy at all with these photos, the lighting is a mess and my hair looks awful, all messed up by the wind. Anyway, posted them just to show you my new denim shirt. Was in my wishlish for ages, and this was the chosen one, the dots were the decisive factor to bring it home.
Não estou nada contente com estas fotos, a iluminação está uma porcaria e o meu cabelo está hediondo, todo despenteado com o vento. De qualquer maneira, deixo-as aqui para vos mostrar a minha nova camisa denim. Andava para comprar uma camisa destas à bastante tempo e esta foi a que gostei mais, as 'pintinhas' foram o factor decisivo para a trazer para casa.

Good news!

Lifestyle // This last month

Image
Joined a short film made ​​by my boyfriend. Basically, I just had to smoke a bit, simple isn't it? But for a non-smoker, this has proven to be a very arduous task, I wasn't looking as nearly as sophisticated as I should with the cigarette. But I liked to dress for the role, was an opportunity to use my fancy earrings and black gloves, Audrey Hepburn's style.
Participei numa curta-metragem realizada pelo namorado. Um verdadeiro acto altruísta da minha parte, devo dizer, dada a minha aversão a aparecer frente às cameras. Basicamente, eu só tinha que fumar, o que à partida é bastante simples, mas para uma não-fumadora, revelou-se uma tarefa muito árdua, não consegui parecer minimamente sofisticada com o cigarro. Mas gostei de me vestir para o papel, foi uma oportunidade para usar os meus brincos fancy que nunca vêm a luz do dia e umas luvas pretas ao estilo de Audrey Hepburn. Went to an adventure park to experiment the longest Fantasticablein the world. And what is this? A 150…

Fashion // Pearls

Image
The days when pearls were only used in earrings, necklaces and bracelets are long gone. Today they can be applied to practically everything, you just have to be creative. They're a romantic alternative to the studs. I've tried to use them in my hair (and liked it!), now I intend to apply them in a sweater (see the 1st picture) but I'll leave this DIY for the Autumn.

Longe vão os tempos em que as pérolas só eram usadas em brincos, colares e pulseiras. Hoje podem ser aplicadas em praticamente tudo, basta ter criatividade. São uma alternativa romântica às tachas. Já experimentei usá-las no cabelo (gostei muito do resultado), pretendo também aplicá-las numa camisola, como na primeira foto, mas vou deixar essa DIY para o Outono.
