Details // Colorful Bracelets

Image
Something tells me these three beauties and me are gonna be BFFs this summer. Wear them almost everyday, the colors are super cute. They're from GOcheapLOOKchic, an online portuguese store that sells amazing jewelry. Have to show you the rest of my accessories from there!
São três e são as minhas companheiras de momento: uma pulseira azul, uma rosa e outra preta e todas elas ficam muito bem juntas. São da loja GOcheapLOOKchic, uma loja online pela qual estou perdida de amores (esperem só para ver o resto das coisas giras que tenho de lá!).

Beauty // Chocomania Set from The Body Shop

Image
It's been a while since I got this set from The Body Shop in a giveaway the brand did on Valentine's day. My theory is, as I had an awful Valentine's Day (was ill, with fever, in bed all day), karma decided to reward me with this treat.
Was extremely happy, I love TBS products and they came in an adorable heart-shaped metal box. The funny thing is I liked the box more that the products itself, the Chocomania set is definitively not my favorite 'cause I don't like its scent. 
However, fragrances aside, the quality is undeniable: the body butter is thick and super moisturizing and the body scrub makes my skin incredibly soft. However don't recommend it to sensitive skin, it's a bit aggressive. About the lip balm I can't say a thing 'cause I gave it to my mom, but she liked it and uses it regularly. The shower cream is stored for future travels, since it's travel-size.

Já foi há algum tempo que ganhei este conjunto da The Body Shop num sorteio que a …

Decor // Welcome to my bedroom

Image
Wanted to share with you some details from my bedroom: the iron bed, the porcelain door knob, the colorful tiles (that belong to the hallway, not my bedroom, but couldn't stop sharing)... In another post I'll show you the rest of my room, more specifically how I organize all my jewelry and makeup.
Estes são apenas alguns detalhes de um quarto que muito gosto: a cama de ferro, a maçaneta de porcelana com flores, os azulejos e os interruptores com a moldura em metal (que não pertencem ao quarto, mas sim ao corredor, contudo não podia deixar de partilhar)... Noutro post mostrarei o resto do espaço, mais propriamente como eu organizo toda a minha bijuteria e maquilhagem.

Must-see blogs // The Clothes Horse

Image
Rebecca is the girl behind The Clothes Horse, an artistic personal style blog truly inspiring. The backgrounds of her pictures are always gorgeous, very countryside. Besides that, Rebecca seems an adorable girl, she has an awesome haircut that looks amazing on her and her clothes are to die for, all very lady-like! 
Rebecca, uma rapariga de 26 anos a morar na Pensilvânia, é a blogger por detrás do The Clothes Horse, um blog sobre personal style verdadeiramente inspirador. Os cenários que compõe as fotos dela são sempre lindíssimos, muito campestres.

Outfit // Fluffy Girly Skirt

Image
Skirt - c/o Sheinside | Shirt - c/o Dresslink | Bag - Primark | Necklace - c/o BePretty.me | Tights, Ring & Watch - Ebay
Sheinside is probably my favorite online store. All the items I've received from there are exceptional in terms of quality, use them extensively in daily basis and they remain like brand new. This skirt was my latest purchase and I am telling you I'm absolutely in love with this super girly and adorable skirt, makes me want to jump and spin with it. The shirt, from Dresslink, has amazing sleeves with cuts, which makes my arms look thinner. Along with the transparency, it gives a sexy but elegant look (note to myself: do not forget to use a top under the shirt next time). It will be a item I'll wear a lot this summer for sure, especially in the evenings. Last but not least, accessories: I've been completely addicted to Ebay, bought the ring and the watch (plus a dozen other things) and they're quite good! Pictures taken by Ana, thank's!

Daily Dishonesty - Lovely Little Lies

Image
Want to share with you one of my favorite blogs of all time, the Daily Dishonesty. It belongs to a graphic designer who creates wonderful typographic works, telling little lies we often say to our mates or even to ourselves. The vibrant colors, the outstanding typography, the lovely lies, everything is so catchy and adorable! Bravo. 
Partilho hoje convosco um dos meus blogs favoritos, o Daily Dishonesty. Nele uma designer gráfica expõe maravilhosos trabalhos tipográficos, frases que contêm pequenas mentiras que dizemos muito frequentemente, tanto aos outros como a nós mesma. As cores vibrantes, o lettering exuberante, as pequenas frases divertidas, tudo é cativante! O engraçado é que todas estas adoráveis mentiras poderiam muito bem ter sido ditas por mim. Quem se identifica nelas também?

Details // White Shoes & Heart Tights

Image
Don't you just love it when you go for a walk and find the most amazing shoes at a street market for only 4 euros? And if I tell you those adorable shoes are brand new and made of leather? Of course I had to buy them.  Also adore my heart tights and they were really inexpensive: bought them on Ebay, 2 euros only. 
Não adoram quando saem de casa apenas para dar um passeio e acabam o dia com uns sapatinhos novos comprados numa feira de velharias, por 4 euros? E não é fantástico quando esses sapatos estão em óptimo estado porque nunca foram usados e são de pele? Coisas destas deviam acontecer mais vezes!  Os collants foram outro bom negócio, comprados no Ebay por apenas 2 euros.

Beauty // Bath ballistic and bubble bath

Image
Last month, on Mother's Day, I received a Lush bath bomb in my mailbox. The brand also offered my mum a lovely tulip (bubble bath!). Used the ballistic some time ago and today was the day to try out the tulip bubble bath ("stole" it from mum just for experiment purposes!) MUM TULIP A lovely wand that gives you a bubble bath of chocolate and orange (and can be used up to 6 times!). When it's finished, you can plant the seeds that came along in the label and grow some wild flowers. What I think after using it once: woooow. Impossible not to love a bubble bath. Spent an eternity inside the tub, it was so relaxing. It costs 7,95EUR.
SECRET GARDEN  A bath ballistic, whose interior is filled with petals. What's a ballistic? It's a product that you put into the bath water, it will dissolve, giving the water a cute color and scent. The idea isn't to create bath foam but to stain the water with fancy colors and make it more moisturizing and perfumed. Broke in half an…

Outfit // Run out of ideas and make a parody

Image
Pants - C&A | Jacket - c/o Sheinside | Shirt - c/o Choies | Sneakers - c/o Maxstar | Bowler hat - c/o Dresslink
Rare are the times you see me wearing pants, but when I wear them they're usually black and accompanied by a leather jacket. Rare are also the times I wear sneakers, but when the sneakers in question are all white and shiny, I must wear them of course! These are from Maxstar, was pleasantly surprised when received them, great quality and quite comfortable, approved! The t-shirt, from Choies, besides having a super cute design, has a sarcastic message that it's really funny: "Run out of ideas and make a parody". Have been trying to increase my t-shirt collection and this one fulfilled all my requirements: not too tight, easy to combine, original. And finally, have the bowler hat I wished for a long time. It's from Dresslink and love it, must wear it all the time. As you can see, I'm a sucker for the black and white combo, even my car is black and whi…

Yummy! // Lemon Pie

Image
This time, this little wonder doesn't belong to me but to my mom, she made this tasty pie for me. Must confess I love pies but have no patience to make them, so it's amazing when I'm at home and smell a freshly made pie. 
Lemon Pie INGREDIENTS Dough 1 1/2 cups flour 1/2 cup sugar 130 grams butter 1 egg a pinch of salt Filling 1 lemon 250 grams sugar 100 grams butter 2 tbsps cornstarch 4 eggs a pinch of salt
Dough: Mix the flour, sugar and salt together in a large bowl. Cut the butter in small chunks and mix it, adding the egg too. Mix all the things together. If your dough is a little sticky and you can't make a ball with it add a little more flour. Let the dough rest some time, then roll it and place it on the form. Prick several times on the crust with a fork. Preheat oven to 175°C and bake the tart for 20 minutes. Filling: Slice the lemon into thin wheels, remove seeds and the white parts. Put the pieces of the lemon, sugar and the butter into a bowl. Mix well. Add the eggs, cornstar…
