Hi, ya'll!
Am I the only one who thinks my new blouse's sleeves are adoooorable?
Based on the obsession everyone's having over these kind of details lately,
I bet I'm not!
They might not be super practical in the daily life 
(food always gets in the way and house chores are totally forbidden),
but they're sure pretty!

This pinky blouse (oh gosh, someone tell me to wear another color already! :o) 
is not the only novelty of this outfit, though:
my nude Mango coated jeans are finally in the game,
keeping me from the two pairs of blue jeans I'm aaaalways wearing!

This outfit is all creamy, soft and ethereal...making me feel like a nymph, a fairy, an elf...
(Yes, I'm ALWAYS a mythological creature in my head...)
I believe it really shows the tranquility I'm feeling right now...

So far, my new capsule wardrobe has been a success! 
Month number 1 was sucessfully done! 
My new way of dealing with clothes, having only 33 pieces to wear for 3 months, 
has been truly inspirational!
It made me realize I DON'T REALLY NEED ALL THOSE CLOTHES...
Neither of us does, actually!
I'm not letting consumerism get a hold on me again after this...oh no!

What about you? Do you like these soft shades? Are you a fan of "capsule wardrobring" too?

Beauty | Another hair makeover...help!


Oooops, I'm already bored over my hair since the last makeover...
What to do, what to do...
I wanna continue to be bronde, that's for sure, but I need more...and less!
More "wow factor", less work to keep it!
Maybe some ombre...maybe get darker (in my natural color?) roots...maybe balayage???
Baaaah, I can decide!

What do you say?
What should I do to get a sparkier, but low maintenance hair?

Feel free to drop me any suggestions at the comments!


Pensei que tivesse encontrado o cabelo que me iria satisfazer durante um par de meses na última "makeover",
mas estava enganada!
Como eterna insatisfeita, eis-me outra vez a sentir-me "meh" em relação às minhas ondas,
e a invejar, sistematicamente, cabelos alheios no Instagram e no Pinterest...

Quero manter o "bronde", mas mudar algo...e tornar a manutenção mais fácil!!!
Sei lá, talvez escurecer as raízes (aproveitar a minha cor natural???),
fazer um ombré, "balayage", quaaaaalquer coisa!!!

Estas são algumas das inspirações!
Por qual optar?!

Se tiverem sugestões são bem-vindas!!!

E o teu cabelo perfeito, como é?

Outfits | "To love and to be loved is to feel the sun from both sides"


pink trench coat: c/o Shein | beige blouse: c/o Rare London bandana pink scarf: Stradivarius
denim A line skirt: Pull&Bear (similar here and here) | blush bag: Michael Kors Selma mini messenger (similar here)
rose gold sandals: c/o Only2Me by Portuguese Hands
(wearing Comexim Elena plunge in 60HH underneath)

Aaaah, it felt so good to feel the sun and soft wind in my cheeks at last,
and take a break from the typing I spent my (almost) entire weekend doing...
especially wearing such light and fresh clothes!

Unfortunately the sunny days were brief, and the rain is back, to mock our summer dreams!
I cannot describe my happiness while feeling the sun and the soft wind in my cheeks...

The metallic rose gold sandals are new and they're suuuuper gorgeous, don't you think?
I worked my outfit around them!

Enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Outfits | Forest elf


white with blue embroidered dress: c/o Zaful | dark blue jeans: Lefties
light blue trench coat and armour ring (similar here): c/o Romwe | blue suede boots: ZARA
blush bag: Michael Kors Selma mini messenger (similar here)
(wearing Comexim Elena in 60HH underneath)

I thought I would wear pink the whole spring, but my "CAPSULE WARDROBE" had other plans!
Here I am, an obedient little blogger, wearing blue and (hopefully) rocking it!

I must warn you, though, that I wasn't very photogenic this day and my hair was a mess...
but I tried to absorb all those warm rays of sun and pretend I was a forest elf,
hence forgetting my tiredness for a moment...

Hope you enjoy the result!

Outfits | Grey shades...to mimic these clingy grey clouds!


pink jacket (similar) and grey skinny jeans (similar): Bershka | grey and pink sneakers: New Balance c/o Spartoo
pink chiffon sweater: c/o Front Row Shop (similar) | grey fringed crossbody bag: c/o La Redoute (similar here and here)
(wearing Comexim Sonia in 60HH underneath)

The sun keeps peek-a-booing with my bronde hair 
and I keep rocking my comfort clothes (and shoes!) in progressively lighter shades!
Matching the cloudy skies, I've developed this addiction to grey, 
which is very visible in my New Balance 620 sneakers and my fringed bag, 
novelties I've added to my new CAPSULE WARDROBE!

What do you think of this pink and grey outfit? Would you wear it too?

Have a lovely week!

Outfits | Pink fly eyes


pink trench coat and skinny jeans: c/o SheIn | white top: c/o Front Row Shop
blush bag: Michael Kors Selma mini messenger (similar here
mirrored rose gold sunglasses: eBay | pearl ear cuff: c/o P&A Be You | rings: c/o Ingruccia
white and rose gold sneakers: Adidas Superstar (similar here, here and here
(wearing Comexim Elena in 60HH underneath)

This is my definition of a perfect spring outfit: skinny jeans, a nice pair of sneakers and a trench coat,
sprinkled by a touch of pink, THE color of the season!

I missed photographing outfits a lot...
so much that I HAD to do it as soon as this awful rain gave the slightest truce!

Hop you enjoy the rest of the pictures of my casual outfit!

Have a lovely week(end)!

Opinion | Skinny Privilege, Fat Shaming ou como quem vê pesos não vê refeições...e muito menos corações!



O Verão aproxima-se a passos largos (embora, olhando pela janela, uma pessoa até duvide!),
o que significa que somos constantemente inundados por um (irritante) chorrilho de publicidades 
a cremezinhos, massagenzinhas e "pozinhos" de perlimpimpim que prometem tirar isto e aquilo,
para sermos mulheres mais leves e - consequentemente?! - ficarmos "beach ready"...

Já deixei claro nesta publicação o que acho que realmente precisamos para ir para a praia,
mas hoje decidi trazer ao blog uma publicação de "body acceptance" (ainda) mais séria,
que se debruçará sobre os conceitos de "skinny privilege" e "fat shaming".

Considero que temos o dever de os conhecer e minimizar o impacto que têm na sociedade!
A minha visão será pessoal, claro está, e provavelmente não estará de acordo com as ideias de todos...
mas, como médica de família apaixonada por pessoas, 
sinto que estou numa posição privilegiada para falar destes temas 
sem que me acusem de não perceber patavina de saúde.

Juntam-se a mim?

Outfits & Fashion & Trends | Blogging Braga...and so it begins!



Braga é uma cidade fresca, vibrante e jovem...a cidade que me viu crescer...
Por esse motivo, foi com extremo prazer que me juntei ao projecto BLOGGING BRAGA,
com as bloggers Sara do Loveliness by Sarah, Diana do My Fashion Snack e Ângela do Princesa Sem Tiara,
para dar a conhecer a cidade e a moda que se faz nas suas ruas!

A primeira edição contou com óculos-de-sol da loja Jorge Oculistacarteiras da marca Sisley e Benetton da KALF 
e peças de roupa das marcas Maragata e Baruc (com lojas no centro de Braga), 
bem como da Coco&Diamonds, Mahrla, Embrace Inc. e Carla Pontes, disponíveis na loja Ladyboss,
tal como as pulseiras Dona Clarita e Lia Gonçalves e o calçado Xperimental Shoes.
O projecto contou ainda com o apoio da unidade hoteleira Braga Truthotel
e os (divertidos!) fotógrafos de serviço foram Jorge Rocha Fotografia e Newline Photography - Sérgio Antunes.

Deixo-vos com mais detalhes do conjunto que escolhi e das nossas fotos de grupo!
Espero que gostem!

trench coat, t-shirt, pants and shoes: BARUC

Fashion & Trends | No, I'm still not over my Adidas!


Adidas sneakers made a huge comeback one or two year ago, 
when the Stan Smiths become the "it shoe" for every sneaker lover!
I've recently joined the club as well
and I couldn't help but to keep my Adidas Superstar in rose gold in my capsule wardrobe!
They're my favorite shoes at the moment, that's for sure!

In case you're looking for YOUR pair of Adidas, here's some inspiration!

Have a lovely week!


Superstar | Zx Flux | Stan Smith

A febre pelas sapatilhas Adidas, que (re)começou com as Stan Smith há 1 (ou serão 2?) anitos,
continua, e todas estas maravilhosas inspirações são a prova disso!

Há quem diga que as sapatilhas estão novamente a conhecer um declínio no mundo da moda,
mas eu, pela parte que me toca, estou mais do que rendida e tão cedo (se alguma vez!) não volto aos "stilettos" de outrora!
Afinal de contas, a forma como via o calçado desportivo mudou radicalmente...
só isso justifica o facto destas minhas Adidas Superstar em ouro rosa serem o calçado que mais uso,
e terem, consequentemente, um lugar de honra no meu novo "capsule wardrobe"!

Para responder à vossa vontade de encontrarem sapatilhas da marca em Portugal, 
procurei no conhecido (e de confiança!) site Spartoo,
e encontrei muitos dos modelos mais desejados: Superstar, Zx Flux, Stan Smith...
aqui em casa temos todos, entre mim, a minha mãe, irmã e tia...
sim, pode-se dizer que somos umas macaquinhas de imitação umas das outras!!!

E vocês, têm algum par de sapatilhas Adidas? Que modelo?

Desejo-vos um delicioso resto de Domingo e uma doce semana!
