DETAILS - Roses in my hair

Image
Last summer, there was a overload of flowers crowns around the internet. Then the cold weather came and they disappeared. Wear a flower crown may not be an easy task in your daily life, but just a few roses can work pretty well, easier to use and still very feminine and romantic.  This magnifique hair clip was made by the talented Ana, who recently created Framboesa, a new online store with lots of pretty little things. Well worth the visit, my friends.
Muitas coroas de flores se viram este Verão pela internet, mas com a chegada do frio ficaram esquecidas. Como a sua utilização não é de todo prática no dia-a-dia, usar umas poucas é mais versátil e fica igualmente romântico e feminino.  Este magnífico trabalho pertence à Ana, que tem uma loja recém-criada que me parece que vai fazer muito sucesso: Framboesa. Mal vi estes travessões tive logo que encomendar o meu. O melhor é que há vários modelos, todos eles muito bonitinhos e a preços muito simpáticos. Vale a pena a visita, até porque a…

BEAUTY - Mineral Cosmetics

Image
Had the opportunity to try two products from Itay Mineral Cosmetics, a liquid foundation and a lipstick. 
And what are mineral cosmetics? Products made ​​from substances extracted from the ground, characterized by the absence of chemical dyes, oils and fragrance so they're less harmful to the skin. They are ideal for sensitive skin, because they aren't aggressive, but also for oily skin or acne since it not obstruct the pores. Moreover, it's usually water resistant and with high durability. Usually I use mineral powder foundation, but I have dry skin and in those days I feel my skin more dry than the usual, it's better to use a liquid foundation. I'm using this one from Itay, in Ivory tone. The foundation spreads easily and provides a good coverage. My main requirement is that the foundation has a natural finish and this one satisfied me, it's color is very similar to my skin tone and doesn't accentuate my pores and that's a great thing! Moreover, it offer…

DETAILS - Heart shaped clutch

Image
Have this clutch for about two years, but I think I only wore it three times. It's a beauty but not practical at all, nothing fits inside and I always carry a lot of stuff with me. But I do love it, it's such a delicate accessory. 
Tenho esta carteira há cerca de 2 anos, mas só a devo ter usado umas três vezes. Ela é muito bonitinha, com forro vermelho, mas nada prática, porque nada cabe e eu sou mulher de levar muita coisa atrás de mim. Na altura comprei-a bem ciente deste facto, mas é daqueles acessórios que se compra por prazer.

Lifestyle // Party & its consequences...

Image
Celebrated Carnaval two times this year: Monday and Wednesday, two big parties that lasted all night! Many people don't like to celebrate this time of the year here in Portugal, but it's one of my favorite holiday seasons, love to go out and see lots of people in different and original costumes, like it happens in Halloween. It's a great way to escape routine, I love getting new costumes every year.  Didn't celebrated Valentine's Day, it was probably the worst day of this year till now. Got sick, couldn't sleep at night, with fever and headaches, damn flu. Still recovering, but I'm better now.  I missed doing these personal posts. Don't do it more often due to lack of time, but also 'cause I don't have my camera all the time with me. But I do hope you enjoy these (very rare) posts, I really like to write them.
Celebrei o Carnaval por duas vezes, na Segunda, em Ovar, e na Quarta, numa festa universitária. Eu sei que as opiniões se dividem muito qua…

Perfume Candy?

Image
Never had better excuse to eat sweets! Deo Perfume Candy is a candy, made ​​in Bulgaria, known by its fragrance of roses. Supposedly, after their ingestion, rose oil flavor components are released to the skin. Thus, when evaporates through pores passes the flower scent to the body. According to the manufacturer, four candies are enough for an adult person exhale the scent of roses up to 6 hours. The flavor is very distinct and it makes your breath smells fantastic, which leads me to believe that these sweets are excellent for smokers. I tried both varieties, with and without sugar. The taste is no different, so it's always better to opt for sugar free. I liked the flavor, is very peculiar but pleasant, but didn't detect any fragrance on my skin, but it may be very subtle, or so I've accustomed to the aroma. I offered one to my mother, I immediately felt a strong aroma of roses coming from her mouth, even though I was a meter away from her. In short, my mouth definitely smelled li…

Faux Leather Jacket and Lace Dress

Image
Jacket & Dress - c/o Sheinside | Clutch - Primark | Shoes - Seaside | Socks - Local Store
You may not believe, but this is my first lace dress. Sure I've a few with some lace details, but not in it's totality. Decided to take a risk and choose it in a light color, because my usual choice is always black dresses, but I have to vary, wearing only black eventually becomes boring. About the jacket, I've always had a crush on (faux) leather jackets, they're so edgy and cool. So, although I already have a leather jacket, I needed a new one, they're never too much! This one from Sheinside is amazing, it's very well made and fits me perfectly. So, I'm super happy with these two pieces and I'll wear them a lot! These pictures are a bit dark, there wasn't much daylight remaining when I took them. How I miss summer days...
Por incrível que pareça, este é o meu primeiro vestido rendado. Claro que tenho uns quantos com apontamentos de renda, mas não na sua tota…

Must-see blogs // The Nancy Wilde Experience

Image
Hadn't had a blog crush like this in a long time. Loved The Nancy Wilde Experience since the first time I visited it, read all the posts in one night.  Nancy is a beautiful girl with bambi eyes and a very unique style. I'm delighted when I meet people with such a strong identity and authenticity. Apart from its wonderful pictures, she makes two regular posts I love: Inspiration, with a large selection of images of a powerful female character (as Catwoman, Mia Wallace... ) and It Girl, also about  a strong woman, but not ficticious.  Also, this girl knows how to write. Her texts always have relevant information and are intelligent and appealing. Long story short, the whole blog is a reflection of the exceptional taste of Nancy. I know I made lots of compliments, but they're well deserved.
Já há algum tempo que não tinha uma blog crush assim! Adoro quando vou a um blog e gosto tanto dele que fico lá horas a ver posts antigos. The Nancy Wilde Experience foi um desses blogs, a pr…

Black Velvet Dress

Image
Dress - c/o Sosolo | Shoes - Pull & Bear | Bag - c/o Pinkoholic | Gloves & Beanie - Primark 

I've a crush for velvet clothes and in my closet I've two velvet dresses already: one from Stradivarius to wear at night (it's very tight and sexy) and this one from Sosolo, to wear by day. Although I think would prefer it with long sleeves, this way I can wear it anytime of the year. Yes I know that velvet is more appropriated for cold seasons but I see myself wearing it during Spring and Summer too.  About it's brand, it came from a store I didn't know till a month ago but now I love. Got three pieces from Sosolo: a vintage sweater (shown here), this pretty dress and a set of rings I'll show you later. All these things came in great conditions, this dress is very well made, the fabric is great (very soft) and it looks great when dressed. If you're interested in purchase something from the site, you can use the code FASHION10 to get a 10% discount.

Valentine's Day Ideas

Image
This year I won't celebrate Valentine's Day, but that doesn't prevent me from sharing with you really cute and easy to make ideas I found. I think it makes all the sense offer something made by us, with meaning, instead of buying mainstream items that will increase the consumerism around this date. 
Pop-up photo box- This idea is so lovely I might use it in mother's day! Message in a bottle- In case you prefer words, this is a great way to deliver a special message. Coupons - A highly personalized gift. A coupon for a massage, for a breakfast in bed... Photo cube - Are you an Instagram addict? If the answer is yes, why not print your favorite pictures and display them in a cube? An original alternative to the traditional frames.  Box of chocolates - A yummy gift that you can enjoy too. Who doesn't like homemade chocolate? Heart-shaped tea bags- If you both are tea lovers, this is a lovely detail. Hidden heart cake- To open a cake and see a heart, now that would be a nice …

BEAUTY - Foot Cream

Image
Sadly, I'm not one of those women who can stand on high heels gracefully without any pain all day long. After a few hours (depending on heel height) I get so tired all I want is to take them off. So I have used this Akileine cream to prevent sore feet and blisters. Had noticed that a brief massage with this cream relieves fatigue in that area, but in the New Year's Eve  I really tested its effectiveness. I can tell you I walked in heels for a long time and my feet hurt like hell. When I got home, I immediately used this cream and after a brief massage I didn't feel any pain anymore, fantastic! Moreover, it smells great. If interested, I think it sells in pharmacies.
Para meu pesar, não sou uma daquelas mulheres que se aguenta em cima de saltos altos com graciosidade e sem mácula durante o dia inteiro. Ao fim de umas horas (dependendo da altura do salto) tendo a ficar cansadíssima e se tiver que caminhar, ui, estamos mal. Por isso tenho usado este creme Akileine, para preven…
