Outfits | ​Ruffling and smiling on!

white ruffled sleeves blouse: c/o SheIn | jeans: Stradivarius | fringed bag: c/o XTI
blue hat: Parfois (similar) | flower scarf: Forever 21 (similar) | white and rose gold sneakers: Adidas superstar 80s
(wearing Comexim Elena in 60HH underneath)


Dramatic sleeves and ruffles are some of the biggest Fall/Winter trends!
The bigger and rufflier the better!
That's why I couldn't resist this blouse from SheInthat totally stole the show in these pictures!
I paired it with simple pieces, including my new fringed XTI bag,
my super comfortable Stradivarius jeans and my white and rose gold Adidas Superstar!

I photographed this with the help of Diogo, in his hometown, Vila Nova de Gaia,
with a delicious view over Oporto and the Douro river...
Hope you enjoy the rest of the pictures!

Have a lovely weekend, y'all!

Outfits | Happiness is a cup that tastes (way) better when it's shared!


white t-shirt: c/o C&A | beige jeans: Bershka | navy cardigan: c/o Rosewe | printed scarf: Forever 21 | golden watch: Casio
beige crossbody bag: Michael Kors Selma mini | rose gold white sneakers: Adidas Superstar 80s (similar)



Sharing happy, silly, imperfect portraits is one of my favorite things about this blog...
I love being able to show you don't need to be super curated to smile,
no matter how perfection-obsessed today's society seems to be!
I believe we're slowly moving into a more positive world
and I long for the day each and every girl worldwide will love her reflection!

Hope you enjoy these fall-y pictures taken at a gorgeous Portugal corner, Vila de Conde!

Beauty | Halloween Tales: a pretty scary GOSH makeup!


As a kid raised in the 90s, I am drawn to scary and horror stuff like a moth to the light.
I can't help it!
I've seen as many horror movies as Disney ones, I've read most of R. L. Stine books
and I never thought there was such thing as spending too much time in a cemetery!
That's why, despite being quite underrated in my country,
Halloween as a special place in my delicate dark heart!

This year, I decided to get creative with my GOSH Cosmetics products 
and create a super easy skeleton makeup tutorial!
I think it turned out quite nicely, considering it was my first time doing something like this! 
Hope you enjoy it!

Tell me in the comments if you're going to do some Halloween makeup yourself this year,
okay?
I'm curious!

Kisses!


Talvez não saibam, mas eu cá sou, desde pequenina, uma fã confessa de tudo o que envolva terror...
Como criança que cresceu nos anos 90,
fui bombardeada com aterrorizantes filmes que devorava na companhia da minha tia, 15 anos mais velha,
li praticamente todos os livros do R. L. Stine 
e achava que passar grande parte do tempo em cemitérios não era nada esquisito!

Nesse sentido, apesar de ainda pouco popular entre os portugueses, 
tenho pelo Halloween um carinho especial!
Foi por esse motivo que revolvi puxar pelos meus (embora parcos) dotes de auto-maquilhadora
e criar um pequeno - e muito fácil! - tutorial de maquilhagem para o Dia das Bruxas,
com produtos GOSH!

Descubram como o fiz, passo-a-passo, na publicação completa!
Espero que gostem!

Outfits | Easy, girl, it's not the world that's trembling, but your impatient little heart!

black cross body bag: ZARA | metallic copper sneakers: Adidas Superstar 80s (similar here)

Staring at these pictures make me reminisce my days as a little kid,
particularly one photograph where I'm wearing a denim jacket and rocking a medium hair cut too!

This is my first outfit with my newest hair makeover 
and there's no denying my wavy log is the biggest star of this simple and casual outfit!

Hope you enjoy these fall photographs!

Beauty | My Fall 2016 hair cut makeup: ready, set, chop!



Fall means means falling leaves, falling rain, falling hair...
The new season is an excellent time for new hair cuts and/or colors!
Inspired by that, and because my poor hair was shapeless and ruined by all the summer' salt and sun,
I decided to give it a fresh face: get it shorter and shaggier, with layers, movement and health!

How do you like the result?
Do you think longer is always better or not?

Check the full post to see how it looks from the front!

Have a lovely week, everyone!

Outfits | Nerding around, not sure to fit in anywhere...


green corduroy skirt and green crochet choker: Forever 21 | striped sweater: C&A
denim jacket: c/o Abaday | chelsea boots: Xti c/o Spartoo (similar) | hair clip: Vilanova | black bag: ZARA
(wearing Ewa Michalak Syrena S in 65F underneath)

If I may so myself, I felt pretty adorable in this outfit...
a Queen B and Hermione Granger mash-up, preppy and nerdy, but in a good way!
(The denim jacket doesn't fit that well in the aesthetic, but hey!, do I ever do?!)
I strolled around the park of a town I don't think I blend in (despite living here for almost 2 years),
but I felt powerful nonetheless, ethereal somehow...

This outfit combo couldn't be simpler,
I paired a corduroy A-line skirt from Forever 21,
with stripes, a cross-body bag from ZARA and simple chelsea boots...
would you wear it too?

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

white t-shirt: ZARA | dusty cedar fedora hat (similar) and cardigan and floral scarf (similar): Forever 21
skinny jeans: Stradivarius | sneakers: Adidas Superstar 80s metallic copper (in white)
beige bag: Michael Kors Selma mini messenger (similar)

Hi there, everyone!
The second outfit from my Fall "Capsule Wardrobe" is here
and it's an ode to my love for "dusty cedar" - one of my favorite Pantone 2016 colors -
and to my Miami shopping spree as well, since most of these pieces were born in the USA:
the fedora hat, cardigan and floral scarf from Forever 21
and my beloved super cool metallic copper Adidas I was sure to grab at Foot Locker!

I wore this casual outfit to stroll along Monção, a romantic portuguese village,
enjoying the sun, the green, the beauty that surrounded me!

Hope you enjoy the photographs me and Diogo took there!

Kisses

Fashion & Trends | My Fall 2016 Capsule Wardrobe is here: 39 pieces for 3 months!


The time to reveal the 39 pieces I will be wearing this fall is here at last!
From October to December, 
these are the shoes, bags, skirts, pants, tops and coats I will be wearing on repeat!

I've altered a few of my own rules since I started back in February (listed here):
since this is a chilly season, I allowed myself to get more pieces into my wardrobe (39 instead of 33),
I got to buy 6 new pieces to include in my wardrobe (instead of 3),
and now similar pieces only count as one item (like 2 white t-shirts, for example).
Other than that, the challenge is the same: continue to enjoy life without a pile of clothes around,
without buying pieces each and every day!

For 3 months, there beautiful and practical pieces will be my companions...
will you join us in this adventure?



O meu novo "Capsule Wardrobe" chegou finalmente ao blog!
Muita ponderação, inspiração e comprinhas depois, estas 39 peças são o resultado final!
Durante Outubro, Novembro e Dezembro 
estes são os sapatos, carteiras, partes de cima, partes de baixo e casacos que poderei usar.

Já desde Fevereiro do ano passado que me tenho vestido desta forma,
construindo o meu "guarda-fatos" periodicamente seguindo algumas regras.
O objectivo?
Deixar bem para trás os meus tempos de acumuladora de roupas que usava apenas uma vez,
e passar a ter uma identidade na hora de vestir;
dizer não ao consumismo e tentar ter mais consciência ecológica e social.
O caminho ainda é bastante longo...
Mas sinto que, desta forma, estou um passo mais próxima!

Para esta edição de Outono, como se avizinhava uma estação mais fria,
optei por usar mais peças do que as 33 habituais (39),
permiti-me comprar 6 peças novas (ao invés das 3 de outrora)
e decidi que, doravante, peças similares serão consideradas uma só (2 t-shirts brancas, por exemplo).

Que acham deste desafio?
Uma loucura para uma "blogger de moda"?
E vocês, eram capazes de usar um número fixo de peças durante 3 meses
e não comprar nadinha até ao fim?

Deixo-vos com fotos mais detalhadas de algumas das peças escolhidas!
(Os chapéus são um bónus, os acessórios estão fora da contagem das 39.)


Escolham as vossas favoritas!
