Lingerie & Videos | Discover your bra size!


Olá, olá!

A "braholic" está de volta, para voltar a falar de um dos temas que mais me apaixona:
"BRA FITTING"!



Hi there, the "braholic" is here to share some "bra fitting" advices again!
The video I made is in my mother language, but I highly recommend you check this guide!
I think you'll get everything covered after that!

I promise that when I start reviewing my bras I'll get all the information in english too!

Feel free to drop any questions you might have!

_____________

Para quem ainda não teve oportunidade de ver, anteriormente foram abordados os temas:

"Como colocar um soutien", 
onde ensinei a maneira correcta de o vestir 
e
"Os 7 erros de "Bra Fitting" mais comuns", 
onde expliquei quais os sinais de um soutien no tamanho/modelo errados

Hoje, venho trazer-vos aquele que me parece o passo seguinte mais lógico:
ajudar-vos na tarefa de descobrirem

O VOSSO TAMANHO BASE MAIS CORRECTO!

Para esse efeito, 
fiz o vídeo que se segue, onde explico, passo-a-passo, como o podem fazer:





Quando vestirem "O TAL" irão sentir a diferença, dia após dia!
Mais suporte, mais conforto, menos dores, menos incómodo, ...!

Um SOUTIEN foi feito para suportar e elevar...o peito e a auto-estima!!!

De que estão à espera para descobrir o vosso TAMANHO CERTO?


Para os meus leitores mais apressados e que quiserem ficar com uma ideia geral,
antes de se debruçarem no vídeo com as explicações em pormenor,
deixo um breve resumo dos passos em texto:

Outfits | I'm the kind of princess who has messy hair, clumsy steps and a big smile on her face...the kind that traded the fairy tale for the real life!


salmon dress: Elsa Barreto | clutch: Bijou Brigitte | beige sandals: ZARA

Twirling, smiling and being goofy...that's what this princess does best!

Hope you enjoy the pictures from the wedding I attended this weekend!

Outfits | Xena, the Warrior Princess...sort of!


boots: ZARA | belt: unkown | bracelet: local store

If you're a 90's kid, you probably know who am I talking about...
If you don't, be sure to check Xena's awesomeness right here!
Oh my, how I loved to see that series!

Forget the blue shades and the softness of my outfit 
and focus only on the badass belt and the greek inspired dress!
Do I kind of remind you of this mighty warrior princess or not?
Say yes and be done with it, fulfilling my childhood dream, okay?

Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!
Who was your favorite character when you were growing up?
I have to say Buffy was also a girl I looked up to!
(It's easy to tell have a thing for bad girls...ah!)

What about you?

Outfits | I'm eating the whole box of chocolates!


dress: Blanco | sandals and bandana scarf: Stradivarius | denim jacket: Freesoul
camel fringed bag: c/o Romwe | sunglasses: Parfois | bracelet: unknown

This dress could have been too sexy for the daily life...
However, I toned it down with some relaxed elements, like the scarf, the denim jacket and the backpack!
Hope you enjoy the result!

Fashion & Trends | Stradivarius fall wish list


Stradivarius is one of my favorite fast fashion stores!
In the past couple of seasons the collections have been truly captivating to me...
and this was no exception!
Ochre shades, fringes and a delicious 70's vibe...
I couldn't really ask for anything more!

These are the pieces that are in my wish list...
which are yours?



Se há loja que, nos últimos tempos, me tem cativado de sobremaneira é a Stradivarius!
As inspirações boémias e dos anos 70 têm inundado o meu subconsciente,
e esta marca acessível e divertida tem sido ímpar na sintonia com o que quero vestir! 

Entre a miríade de peças fantásticas que encontrei na loja, 
estas 5 foram as que mais me deixaram pelo beicinho!

A minha alma de shopaholic explica porquê, em 3, 2, 1...

Beauty | 6 Wedding hairdos - which to choose?


I have a wedding to attend at the end of this month, 
so now it's the right plan to decide which hairdo will fit the chosen dress better!

What do you say? 
Which one will suit my sophisticated and low back cut dress?
Do you have any other suggestions?

1: Lily Collins (Oscars 2013) | 2: Olivia Wilde (Oscars 2014) | 3: Karolina Kurkova (Oscars 2015)
 4: Anne Hathaway (Oscars 2011) | 5: Sienna Miller (Oscars 2015) | 6: unknown

A contagem decrescente para o casamento que frequentarei no dia 26 de Setembro começou,
por isso é tempo de alinhavar os últimos detalhes!
Depois de me ter decidi pelo vestido salmão da Elsa Barreto,
é tempo de escolher qual o penteado que completará a indumentária!


Pretendo um apanhado simples e sofisticado 
e que permita que as costas do vestido falem por si...
a questão agora é decidir qual dos 6 acima apresentados será o escolhido!

Qual é a vossa preferência?

Têm alguma sugestão além destas?

Desejo uma excelente semana para todos!

Outfits | My love, there are sad, little, cruel people who will try to crush your happiness..don't let them!



blue blouse: Mango | skinny jeans: c/o SheIn | blue boots: ZARA
pearl ear cuff: c/o P&A Be You | croco bag: c/o Ingruccia | purple nailpolish: Inocos c/o Inoeh

I really can't understand mean people!
Sometimes I wish I wasn't this sensible-emphatic-oh-the-world-is-such-a-beautiful-place human being!
Because sometimes it hurts too f*cking much to be face to face with another species...
(and believe me, I wish I was talking about something with more than 0,5% difference between our genomes!)
The thing is, I can't let myself be bothered!
There are cruel individuals everywhere and part of growing up is realizing that!

That being said, I'm holding my head up high 
and sharing with you some light blue to make the cloudy days disappear in the process!

Hope you enjoy the pictures and don't let anyone bring you down today!

Lingerie & Videos | My 25 bras and "How to put on a Bra" video




Hi there!
Since lingerie is such a major interest of mine,
I've come to the decision to invest a lot more time and energy in the "Lingerie" section of my blog!
The first step is to show my lovely collection of bras, acquired between 2014 and 2015,
featuring major big cup (DD+) brands like Panache, Freya, Comexim, ...

I'm planing on doing some specific reviews for some of these babies, so keep tuned!

Hope you enjoy my collection!
Tell me in the comment section which was your favorite!

_____________

 Depois de meses de promessa, finalmente venho mostrar-vos a minha colecção de SOUTIENS!!!
Neste momento, tenho 25 modelos guardados com todo o carinho na minha gaveta de roupa interior,
a maioria dos quais perfeitamente adaptados ao meu tamanho: 28FF/30F.

Neste primeiro vídeo, que serve de introdução à maior abordagem ao tema "Lingerie" aqui no blog, 
resolvi começar com uma importante lição: "COMO VESTIR O SOUTIEN?", 
com especial ênfase no método "scoop and swoop"!
Espero que gostem de ver a (enorme) paixão com que falo deste tema!



Deixo-vos com as restantes fotos da minha (linda!) colecção;
irei fazer uma "review" a algumas das marcas aqui representadas em breve,
por isso fiquem atentos!

Depois digam-me nos comentários qual dos modelos vos chamou mais à atenção, sim?
Fico a aguardar as vossas sugestões e/ou dúvidas! 

Votos de uma excelente semana!

Outfits | Summer Tales V


leopard neon bikini: Oysho | black bikini bottom: ebay | nailpolish: Inocos c/o Inoeh
denim high waisted shorts: c/o Romwe | white blouse: c/o SheIn
foot bracelet and necklace: local store | fox ring bracelet: c/o Chicnova

Is there any other summer combo that's been more used than the denim shorts + white blouse one?
I can't recall any, can you?
I'm not re-inventing the wheel right here, that's for sure!
Nevertheless, when a combination is soooo perfect, why avoid it?
Especially when the white blouse feels so flowy like this one from SheIn
and the shorts hug your thighs (which are missing a thigh gap but whatever!) without crushing them!
Plus, how can one really focus on the simplicity of the clothes when we have such a lovely setting,
this breath-taking sunset and the colorful leopard printed bikini from Oysho to spice things up?

Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!
Have a lovely weekend!

Outfits | Summer Tales IV


pink jumpsuit: c/o ZNU


If I thought this goooorgeous pink playsuit couldn't get any more romantic,
this lovely sunset in the beach proved me wrong!
How perfect is this setting?
I'll let it's beauty speak for itself and shut up!

Have a lovely week!

Beauty | Obey your Body



Os 25 anos são, para a nossa pele, uma fase de transição.
Deixamos para trás algumas das características de pele jovem que nos caracterizavam,
e dizemos “olá” a uma pele mais adulta...que devemos começar a cuidar!

Nesse sentido, quando fui convidada pela loja OBEY YOUR BODY,
especializada na venda de produtos do Mar Morto,
a descobrir mais um bocadinho sobre cuidado de pele,
não me fiz rogada e aproveitei a experiência ao máximo!


Descubram mais sobre esta aventura e o tratamento facial que fiz no resto da publicação!

Outfits | Summer Tales III


black lace detail shorts: c/o She Inside | bracelet: local store

May I present you the goooooorgeous MyPiki bikini Summer Lights?
I bet I do!
If I told you this baby is a dream come true, would you believe me?
You better do, because I'm being super honest!
I've always wanted a tiny little bikini in which I could tan the way I desired;
it easily turned into my favorite bikini ever!
It flatters the female body and makes you feel super powerful!

I photographed it on the gorgeous "Praia do Alemão" at Portimão, on a rather cloudy day...
but, thankfully the "summer lights" made the day instantly brighter!
Hope you like the pictures!

MyPiki is currently having a 30% discount SALE...how awesome is that?
Why not grab yourself a beach favorite?
Have a lovely weekend!

Outfits | Summer Tales II


striped dress: c/o Abaday | foot and arm bracelet: local store
beige lace up sandals: Pull & Bear | hat: C&A

Gooooooooorgeous!
No, I'm (obviously) not talking about me!
It's "Praínha", this fantastic Portimão's beach, who deserves that adjective!

Don't be fooled by the smiles you'll be seeing throughout this post...
I was actually acting super diva while being photographed by (poor) Diogo,
for the photos weren't coming of as I wanted,
and my hyper perfectionist self was getting all stressed out and moody!
Thankfully, my boyfriend was patient enough
and a few minutes later my smile was genuine, I was having a blast
and the photos turned out just fiiiine!

This striped dress from Abaday is peeeerfect for never ending summer days!
It's very laid-back, simple and suuuuuper easy to combine...
I paired it with the hat and the lace up sandals, aiming for a chic beach outfit!
Did you like the result?

Outfits | Summer Tales I


black dress: c/o Walk Trendy | black hat: Parfois 
fringed camel bag: c/o Romwe | bracelet and belt: unknown 

Yep, I'm back from my vacations and they were short short short!
I wanted to stay in the gorgeous Algarve beaches for aaaaages...but I can't!
Anyway, life goes on, so I can share some sun drenched pictures with you all,
and show how awesomely perfect my Walk Trendy dress is for summer days!

Hope you enjoy my "Summer Tales"! This is just the first book!
