Outfits | Going back to basics


striped turtleneck t-shirt: Bershka | fake leather skirt: Stradivarius | bag: Pimkie 
black silver watch: c/o Daniel Wellington | jacket: New Yorker | lace up boots: Zara
(wearing Panache Black Ardour in 30F underneath) 

I've been feeling this need to clean my wardrobe...
to remove all the pieces I barely wear, the pieces that don't fit me at all...
I have this wish to invest in basic pieces instead of piling up tons of clothes I barely wear,
and keep some fun, quirky pieces to spicy it up...but without waste!
After my exam at 10th February, the purging will begin!
There will be blood and tears, probably, but I know I can do it!

Until then, I'll keep grabbing the most functional clothes from my hanger,
the ones that seem to be worn over and over again, and be happy about it!
I can't tell you how many new clothes have entered my wardrobe since I first started blogging
(actually, come to think about it - I can! - I have the listings in Excel documents!,
that would be a fun point to add to my cleansing blog post, once I make one!),
but, right now, I'm wearing about 1/3 of the clothes I've kept...
and that's not acceptable when there are so many people out there with nothing to wear!
Oh, I will go back to basics indeed...soon enough!

Hope you enjoy this simple outfit, built around the striped turtleneck t-shirt my mom got me!
It was only sale piece to caught my eye, 
except for this Mango parka I've been wearing almost every single day!

Have a lovely weekend!
Kisses

Outfits | Texas Ranger


belt: Promod | hat: Parfois | bag and jacket: Pimkie | boots: XTI Store c/o Spartoo 
(wearing Flirtelle Ariel bra in 30F underneath)

When I was a little girl I spent lots and lots of Sunday afternoons with my grandad,
watching Walker, Texas Ranger, and other movies and series!
I loved those moments that we shared...it was a weird kind of bond, maybe,
but some of my best childhood memories were built in that sofa...
I can't tell you how many times we watched "Babe" together, for example!
I'm lucky enough to still have him in my life...both my maternal grandparents, actually!
They're my second mom and dad, and I just wish they could be here as long as I live...

Nevertheless, once I pictured how this outfit turned out, 
I felt this had a very cowboy, western, texas vibe about it...
hence the title!

Some might say this is more Carnival appropriate...and they might be right!
But since I'm not celebrating it this year (I have an important exam at 10th February!),
this is my suggestion for all you girls still not knowing what to wear:
go western!

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

Personal | China's last post - meet Guilin's extraterrestrial mountains, the rice terraces and Suzhou!


My trip to CHINA was a remarkable experience, 
and I tried to share it the best I could, through pictures and texts!
If you haven't seen any of my previous posts yet, you can check them out HERE!

In this new post I'm gonna show you just how pretty Guilin's and Yanshuo's mountains are,
how impressive the Rice Terraces are and also show you a glimpse of Suzhou!

Hope you enjoy the pictures!


A minha viagem à CHINA, em Maio de 2015, foi uma experiência inesquecível,
que eu tentei partilhar ao longo de uma série de publicações!
Se ainda não viram nenhuma, espreitem, 
estou certa que valerá a pena conhecerem um bocadinho melhor este local exótico:






Esta será a última publicação sobre a China, há muito em falta;
nela contarei como foram os dias passados em Guilin e Yangshuo, terras das suaves colinas,
mostrarei quão impressionantes são os "Rice Terraces" e, finalmente,
quão delicada é Suzhou, com os seus canais!

Estão prontos para começar a viagem?
Venham comigo!

Personal | My ballerina days


Ballet was part of my life for 13 years...it still does, actually...
I'm just not having any classes anymore!

I hold this part of my life very dearly inside my heart,
so I thought it was about time I share with you some of my memories...
Hope you can enjoy them:


Durante 13 anos, o ballet fez parte da minha vida...aliás, ainda faz!
Posso já não ter aulas, mas o meu coração bate mais rápido quando ouço alguma música clássica
e, sempre que posso, acompanho-a com movimentos que sei de cor, que me correm nas veias!
Quando dançava, de sapatilhas rosa, de pontas ou de meia-ponta, o mundo desaparecia...
Confesso que esta sensação me traz saudades...
ADORAVA continuar a dançar e aprender mais, mas a vida vai mudando, o tempo não estica...
Guardo esta parte da minha vida com imenso carinho,
por isso, com uns 2-3 anos de atraso, eis que partilho finalmente convosco estas doces memórias!
Espero que gostem!

Deixo-vos ainda com uma espreitadela a duas sessões fotográficas inspiradas neste mundo tão mágico,
que partilhei no blog ao longo dos anos e que talvez ainda não conheçam:

Lingerie & Videos | Comexim Sonia plunge 60HH (28G) + string (S) review


The Comexim plunges are the holy grail of bras for my narrow and projected boobs,
as Ingrid - my first - proved so beautifully!

Therefore, for my second order, I sticked to this shape and ordered 2 plunges 
- Sonia and Elena -
with a little customization: straps moved in 2 cm (about 0,8 inches).

Sonia is sold as an half cup at the site, but I asked if it could be made as a plunge...
it could, so I ordered it in 60HH, along with the matching thong, custom made, at size S.
The result was as expected: a narrow and sweetly projected bra...perfect for my shape!

Isn't it a beauty?


Na minha busca pelo(s) SOUTIENS PERFEITOS,
arriscar-me a experimentar a marca polaca Comexim foi MAGIA!!!
Os modelos "plunge" da marca, no tamanho 60HH, 
são OS soutiens que melhor me assentam actualmente!
Tenho 3 e não serão os últimos com certeza!

Hoje, venho falar-vos do modelo Sonia, em versão "plunge", uma autêntica beleza:



Ficaram com vontade de experimentar a Comexim?
O meu guia sobre como comprar soutiens pode ser uma ajuda preciosa, então!
Qualquer dúvida ou ajuda que necessitem, não hesitem em contactar-me através do e-mail

Outfits | Red Riding Hood has grown


red dress: c/o Znu | floral scarf: Desigual | black parka: Mango
bag: Pimkie | belt: Promod | boots: XTI Store c/o Spartoo

It's true I have a soft spot for dresses that embrace the curves, rather than smash them!
That's why, wearing this ZNU red dress, I felt so powerful and all grown up!

I paired it with my new colorful scarf, than can brighten up any cloudy day,
and my loyal winter staples: the Mango parka and the XTI Store boots!

Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Lingerie | A guide for buying new (fitting!) bras + my updated bra collection!


Since I (seriously) got into this lingerie blogger thingy in a more consistent way,
my love for lingerie has gotten (was it possible?!) even bigger!

Since I first posted my 25 bra collection back in September,
there were some farewells and some nice add-ons to my bra-drobe
with the last addition being my first Ewa Michalak bra (which I reviewed a few days ago!).
Now I have 18 pretty - and fitting - bras!

In this new post I'm gonna show you how my collection stands now,
and also give some tips on HOW TO BUY your NEW FITTING BRA,
after discovering YOUR SIZE and the CHARACTERISTICS of your BREASTS!

Stay tuned, will ya'?

More pictures and guide after the jump!

from front to back: Comexim Sonia, Cleo by panache Neve and Maddie, Flirtelle Ariel

Dedicar-me de forma mais consistente a publicações sobre Lingerie & Bra Fitting,
tem tornado a minha paixão por lingerie e soutiens ainda maior (se é que era possível!);
além disso, tem-me permitido ajudar outras mulheres na caminhada em busca d' "O TAL",
o que me deixa muito satisfeita!

Desde a minha primeira publicação mais séria sobre o tema, em Setembro de 2015,
a minha gaveta de roupa interior sofreu, naturalmente, algumas baixas, 
(algumas das quais, por já não servirem, estão à venda na minha lojinha!),
e recebeu algumas novidades bem coloridas e bonitas!

Assim sendo, resolvi aproveitar a publicação onde vos darei as 

DICAS para COMPRAREM o SOUTIEN CERTO,

agora que já conhecem o vosso TAMANHO BASE CORRECTO
para vos trazer um "update" da minha colecção,
que está agora mais pequena, mas ainda mais bonita!
(Actualmente, tenho 18!)

Espero que aproveitem bem este guia!

Deixo-vos com mais fotos e todos os pontos que acho fulcrais 
para encontrarem aquele 30DD, 28G ou 32H,
que teima em não aparecer em loja alguma! 
(A parte PORTUGUESA está no final da publicação!)

Lingerie & Videos | Ewa Michalak S Syrena 65F (30F) review


Aaaaaaah...Ewa Michalak...we meet at last!

If you haven't heard about this polish lingerie brand, you definitely should have;
it's getting more and more popular each day!
Probably for their gorgeous handmade designs,
paired with an impressive size range - one of the biggest of the market! -
and the option to customize the size and many aspects of the bras!

In my case, I was longing to try the brand for quite a few months now!
After all, considering my bra shape (narrow and projected!), going polish is perfection!
(Those narrow wires are L-I-F-E!)
First it was Comexim, with my Ingrid in 60HH
followed by an Elena and a Sonia plunge in the same size (soon to be reviewed!).

Now, after weeks lusting over Syrena after I saw it's preview at Ewa's facebook page 
(my birthday wishlist is proof of my devotion!)
she's fiiiiiiiiiiiinally mine...

The S cut proved to be deep, narrow and absolutely PERFECT!




Depois de vos apresentado a fantástica (e acessível) COMEXIM,
a primeira marca polaca de lingerie que experimentei,
venho hoje apresentar-vos a EWA MICHALAK,
também polaca, uma das marcas mais populares do momento!
No vídeo espero deixar bem claro porquê!

Venham conhecer o belíssimo Syrena no corte S no tamanho 30F em 3, 2, 1...



Uma beleza, certo?
A melhor notícia é que mesmo copas mais pequenas podem usufruir deste belo soutien,
já que ele existe no corte M a partir da copa AA!
Quem se está a sentir tentado, hein?

Podem ver mais fotografias no resto da publicação!

Boa sorte na procura d "O TAL"...qualquer dúvida...já sabem...contem comigo!
Um grande beijinho!

Outfits | Wake me up when this dream comes to an end


pink hat and camel suede jacket: c/o Zaful | white shirt: Primark | skinny jeans: c/o SheIn
white shirt: Primark | camel boots: BT London c/o Spartoo | bag: Mango | scarf: c/o Romwe

This bliss inside my heart can only be a dream...right?
Oh, let 2016 go as well as I'm feeling it's gonna be!!!
After my 2015's ups and downs, I wanna enjoy my independence, my adultness, my confidence!
I wanna keep doing my job (or should I say passion) as best as I can,
I wanna invest in this blog with poise and determination and zero doubts!
I wanna travel to places I've never been...
I wanna keep loving myself and others!

Are you joining be?

Outfit wise, I'm very proud of my non-black winter outfit!
As an avid "noir" lover, is always nice to break the mode and go lighter sometimes...
floating like this tiny happy jumping heart of mine!

Also...camel and light pink were TOTALLY mean to be together, right?
Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Have a lovely week!
Kisses

Fashion & Trends | Goldilocks finally picked her porridge...eeeer...BOOTS, I mean!


After months complaining (over and over again!!!) about not having any comfortable boots to wear,
Goldilocks (me) fiiiiinally decided upon these two pairs:
a camel one from BT London and a black one with gold details from XTI Store!
Both are super comfy and versatile!
Which is your favorite pair?

________________________________________________________________________

Depois de passar meses indecisa quanto às botas camel ou pretas que escolheria,
torcendo o nariz a preços e a modelos sem fim,
eis que a escolha foi tomada:
apresento-vos os meus dois pares novos de botas!

Lingerie | Beyond your bra size, a guide to really know your breasts


If you already know your recommended BRA SIZE,
given by a PROPER fitter, 
or done personally by you after following these steps (or similar ones!),
you're one step closer to FINDING THE ONE!

The bad news, however, are:
SIZE IS ONLY THE BEGINNING!

To really know the one you need to
 UNDERSTAND THE CHARACTERISTICS OF YOUR BREASTS,
so you can pick bras accordingly!
Some of the most important ones are listed in this post...
hope it will be a nice help!


Depois de vos ter ajudado a perceber





é altura de responder à questão:

JÁ SEI O MEU TAMANHO CORRECTO...E AGORA???

Mesmo que saibam o vosso tamanho base, ele não é universal,
nem indicativo de que todos os soutiens nesse tamanho vos vão servir...de todo!
Não só de VOLUME se compõe uma mama;
há uma série de características que podem influenciar de sobremaneira 
os modelos que vos ficarão bem e quais é que ficarão péssimos!

Para saberem em que soutiens investir,
é importante terem algum "insight" sobre o FORMATO do VOSSO PEITO!
Ao longo desta publicação, irei explicar algumas das características mais fulcrais,
com dicas de quais os modelos a apostar para cada uma delas,
e "links" utéis para descobrirem mais!

Com isto, espero ajudar-vos na caminhada em busca d" O TAL"!

Fiquem comigo:

Outfits | Laughing (really) is the best medicine!


colorful scarf: c/o Romwe | black leopard print boots: c/o Eureka

These pictures are quite special because I ask made daddy take them!
He was not that thrilled photographing me...and he kept whimpering "Is this torture never-ending?!"...
I just laughed in return and assured him it would soon be over!

Hope you enjoyed my dad's efforts! The pictures aren't perfect, but neither am I!
Black, camel and navy were the shades picked for a nice stroll in my hometown: Braga,
with the company of my beloved family!
Oh, those sunny days back in December felt so darn good!

Hope your 2016 is going smooth!

Kisses

Lingerie | Panache Cari 28F review



Today I'm presenting you a novelty from Panache Fall/Winter collection:
meet the first spacer cup of the brand: Cari!
For it's debut, a rich cranberry shade was picked...
but for spring/summer they're bringing nude as well!

I got the chance to try it in 28F at a local store...
and despite being slightly minimizing for my personal taste,
I must say the bra was super comfortable!

Have you tried it too?


Numa das minhas últimas visitas à Dama de Copas,
tive a oportunidade de experimentar umas das novidades da marca Panache para o Inverno:
Cari , um modelo bastante confortável e invisível sob as roupas!

Optámos pelo tamanho 28F, que assentou bastante bem!
No final, não o trouxe para casa, pois era demasiado largo para o meu formato de peito,
mas achei-o fantasticamente confortável!

Gostam da marca Panache? Já têm algum soutien? Contem-me tudo!

striped blouse: c/o ZNU | black cocoon coat: c/o Choies | crossbody bag: Mango
black pants: c/o SheIn | sandalwood watch: c/o JORD
white and rose gold sneakers: Adidas Originals Superstar


To prove that the outfits based on simpler clothes sometimes are the best,
here's how I start 2016:
wearing a simple striped blouse, a pair of black pants, a minimalistic coat
and a new pair of (gorgeous) white sneakers!
To give a pop of color, I added my cool new crossbody bag from Mango
and the sandalwood watch and voilá:
something simple and classic!

Enjoy the rest of the pictures, will ya?

HAPPY 2016!
