Shirt - c/o Wholesale-dress | Skirt - Vintage | Bag - Parfois 
These pictures aren't from this week, but from the previous week, when the sun was so warm we could go to the beach. Please sun, come back soon, I want to wear my new cute top from Wholesale again!
Podem ver, pela ausência de casaco, que estas fotos não são desta semana. Foram tiradas na semana passada quando o sol ainda brilhava (até demais, eu nem conseguia olhar para a câmera). Foi tão agradável poder usar o meu novo top da Wholesale, que o sol volte em força para o voltar a usar!

Fashion // Summer Shoes

from Zara
I've been wishing for sandals, just want to put all my boots in a closet, paint my toe nails and go for a walk with some cute sandals like these ones. But these beauties costs money and it's cold outside so I'm gonna stay home instead, just browsing Zara's website.
Ando a suspirar por sandálias, apetece-me arrumar com as botas, pintar as unhas dos pés, enfiar uns modelitos assim giros e ir passear à beira-mar.  Mas como a Zara não é amiga da carteira e o vento não está para amigos, vou-me deixar ficar em casa e contentar-me com estas imagens.

BEAUTY - Anatomicals products

Image
Anatomicals is a brand distinguished by it's appealing design, with colorful illustrations and fun titles and descriptions. "We only want you for your body" is the slogan! The products have a great quality/price ratio and the prices float between 1 and 12 euros, approximately. Love creative packagings, these ones are amazing!
Lets talk about these products: Zap! Zap! Zap! Gets that chap - It's a spot stick to fight pimples and it works wonderfully, at least with me. It's rare to have pimples but once in a while appears one and when that happens I apply this gel a few times everyday and the pimples disappear in two days. Stop cracking up - A lip balm that moisturizes dry lips. It isn't great but it's pretty good.   No old bags allowed - An eye gel I was curious to try out. I hate to have dark circles under my eyes and lately they are appearing a lot. So I've been applying this gel, it has a refreshing effect. Do not think it makes them fade away, but reduc…

Dress - Bershka | Shirt - c/o Sheinside | Shoes - c/o Wholesale-dress | Necklace - Sin's Bowtie Store
Never tought I would be joining the fringes trend but I felt in love with these boots from Wholesale-dress. It was the first time I ordered shoes online and I was a bit afraid they wouldn't fit me, but they're just perfect, so comfortable and cute! Wear them almost everyday! In the future, I might buy some sandals, since they're cheaper online.  The shirt is from Sheinside and it's awesome and very suitable for Spring: it isn't too tight, the fabric is fresh and, more important, it has cats! Pretty ones, actually.  Now I'll be cliche and talk about the weather: it's so nice to leave home without wearing tights, isn't it girls?
Nunca pensei em aderir à tendência das franjas mas fiquei in love com estas botas da Wholesale-dress. Nunca tinha arriscado encomendar calçado online com medo que não servisse ou fosse desconfortável, mas a verdade é que as bota…

Must-see blogs // Titles Are Too Mainstream

Image
This blog I found randomly captivated me from the first photo. Reasons why: Vanessa takes her pictures mostly indoors in a beautifully decorated bedroom; she owns fantastic clothes, some made by herself; she has a few tattoos I find amazing. Plus, she has "that thing", there's something special about her.
Este blog, encontrado ao acaso, cativou-me desde a primeira foto. O porquê: a Vanessa tira maioritariamente fotos no interior, num quarto muito bem decorado; tem peças de roupa fantásticas, algumas feitas por ela própria; tem umas quantas tatuagens que eu aprecio e muito. E depois há aquele je ne sais quoi...

Lifestyle // Expocosmética Loves Bloggers

Image
Girls, this post is written in portuguese and it's about a beauty fair I attended in Portugal, but feel free to translate!
Este post vem atrasado, diz respeito ao passado fim-de-semana, mas antes tarde do que nunca! Fui convidada a participar no programa Expocosmética Loves Bloggers, que teve lugar no Sábado, no primeiro dia da Expocosmética - Feira Internacional de Cosmética, Estética e Cabelo 2013. O programa incluía a abertura da feira, onde fomos recebidas com champanhe e sushi, seguido de uma breve visita à feira, o visionamento de desfiles, uma visita aos bastidores, um workshop sobre visagismo e um jantar para finalizar.

Um dos stands que não passava despercebido era o stand da Pluricosmética, com inúmeras promoções (vernizes a 70 cêntimos!) e uns quantos serviços gratuitos, bastava fazer a marcação. Estava imensa gente, a circulação…

DETAILS - Leather sparkly bracelet

Image
Today was a bright sunny day. Left the jacket at home and went outside with a simple sweater, sleeves rolled up. And without sleeves, I showed the world my new gorgeous bracelet from Milideiasoltas
You know those caviar nails, with the little marbles covering the nails? Well, I've a "caviar bracelet", with those marbles and a bit of glitter. Leather and glitter seems an unlikely match, but it turns out it works pretty well and the result is a cool bracelet, very appropriated for this spring.
Hoje esteve um fantástico dia de Primavera e o sol, há muito ansiado, foi muito bem recebido. O casaco ficou em casa, as mangas foram arregaçadas. E sem mangas compridas à vista deu para mostrar a bela da pulseira nova, da loja de bijuteria Milideiasoltas.
Sabem aquelas unhas caviar, com as bolinhas todas a cobrir a unha? Bem, eu tenho uma "pulseira caviar", com as tais bolinhas e um pouco de glitter à mistura. Cabedal e glitter parece à partida uma combinação improvável m…

Lifestyle // The Color Run

Image
This weekend was so great: went to a beauty fair on Saturday and to The Color Run on Sunday, the happiest race on the planet! Indeed it was. I can assure you, it was one of the best experiences in my life, 15 thousand people reunited in an amazing and colorful party. If you have the chance, go to one Color Run, it's epic!
Este fim-de-semana foi em cheio: o dia de Sábado foi dedicado à feira Expocosmética na Exponor (falarei disso noutro post) e Domingo foi dia de Color Run em Matosinhos, a corrida mais feliz do planeta. Parece hipérbole mas não é! Foi dos melhores eventos em que participei, cerca de 15 mil pessoas reunidas numa festa de cor incrível. Se tiverem a oportunidade de participarem numa próxima, não hesitem, vale bem a pena.

Spring time, flowers time.

Skirt - c/o Chicnova | Shirt & Earrings - c/o Wholesale-dress | Bag - c/o Pinkoholic | Hat - Bijou Brigitte  
Wanted a hat like this one for a very long time. Was lucky to find it on sale: did not think twice, bought it immediatly. A little indecision about which color to choose, but ten minutes and many hats later, I went for the blue one. Next purchase: a bowler hat. As you may notice, I'm not wearing pearl earrings, shocking! Truth is, I've been keeping an eye in the next trends and it seems that after the statement necklaces and statement rings, statement earrings will rise! These are from Wholesale-dress and they caught my attention. Received the skirt from Chicnova: in my opinion, black skirts are always a wise choice. This one is so cute, the fabric is stiff so it keeps a strict form which gives it a very lady-like look.  Black skirts are indispensable but a black and white striped t-shirt is also a mandatory item in any closet. Not because it's trendy, 'cause t…
