Outfit // Look at me all colorful

Image
Blouse - c/o ZLZ | Skirt - c/o Chicnova | Shoes - Jumbo | Watch - Parfois
See me dressed in yellow is extremely rare. It's not my favorite color at all, due to my skin tone and due to the fact of being a very flashy color. However, absolutely felt in love with this blouse from ZLZ: the peter pan collar is lovely, the sleeves with such an unique cut too, not to mention the cut outs that remind me the ones I used to make on papers as a child. My first choice would be wearing it with a black skirt or black skinny jeans but didn't wanted to do the expected and wore it with my new awesome denim skirt from Chicnova and some comfy blue moccasins. A lot more colorful than the usual.
Verem-me vestida com peças amarelas é uma situação extremamente rara, não é cor que me cative muito devido ao meu tom de pele e ao facto de ser uma cor muito chamativa. Contudo esta blusa teve de vir morar para o meu armário: adoro a gola peter pan branca, as mangas com um corte original, os recortes no tec…

Lifestyle // Coffee time

Image
Summertime is ending... I'm starting to prefer some quality coffee time with a friend over a beach day, eating non-healthy snacks while making future plans. Must confess I miss working on my projects - I'm saying this now, but I'm sure in two months I'll be whining about the end of summer.
Já se sente o fim do Verão... Já não apetece tanto ir para a praia mas sim para um café com um amigo e passar o tempo a conversar e a fazer planos futuros enquanto se comem coisas gordas que depois pesam na consciência (e na balança). Já sinto umas certas saudades de estar de pijama em frente ao computador metida nos meus projetos - daqui a uns dois meses estarei a amaldiçoar estas palavras e a lamentar o fim do Verão, enfim, uma pessoa nunca está satisfeita.

Lifestyle // An awesome week camping

Image
Just returned from my vacations! I'm (slightly) more tanned, with more freckles and a few extra pounds too. I go camping every year and this time the chosen destination was Figueira da Foz, Portugal. Must say I loved everything: the never ending beaches, giant burgers and awesome ice cream flavors (Peanut! Kinder! Fig!), the company of my friends and bf.
Acabadinha de regressar de uma semana de férias! Venho (ligeiramente) mais bronzeada, com mais sardas e uns quilos a mais também.  Todos os anos vou acampar e este ano não foi excepção. O destino escolhido foi a Figueira da Foz e devo dizer que adorei: as praias com extensos areais, os hamburgueres gigantes e os gelados de sabores inéditos (gelado de amendoim! de kinder! de figo!), a companhia dos amigos e do bf. 

Our humble accommodations. Mine is the messy one, no surprises here.
As nossas humildes tendas, às quais se juntaram mais tarde outras duas. Claro que a minha é a mais desarrumada...
Reading Vogue September, of course.

Beauty // Beach Sun Protection

Image
To protect my skin and hair at the beach, these are my favorite products at the time: Boots Laboratories Dry Oil Sun Spray SPF 30 - It has an oily texture that leaves my skin hydrated and with a bright look. I have dry skin, so these based oil sun creams are my favorites. In terms of protection against sunburn fulfills its function perfectly. Bioseivas Biphasic Spray UV Protection - In addition to dry skin, I have dry hair, sun exposure and sea water aren't exactly good things to this hair o'mine. To prevent this I use this spray to make my hair more hydrated. It's a reasonable product but not super effective, for normal hair should be enough but for dry hair is not enough. However it's scent is wonderful. Avon Anti-Aging Sun Cream SPF 30 - Face Moisturizer that prevents skin aging. It's moisturising and not oily. Aside from these three, cannot forget the hat, moisturizing lipstick and sunglasses.
Para proteger o cabelo e a minha pele na praia, estes são os três produt…

Lifestyle // Medieval times

Image
Last year I showed you some pictures of a medieval fair here in my town. Now here I am with these brand new pictures from this year! Once again, worked as a volunteer, was an actress. It's so amazing to be able to live these magic times in such a deep way. Next year I'll be there again for sure.
Já no ano passado vos tinha mostrado um cheirinho da Viagem Medieval de Santa Maria da Feira, este ano mostro-vos de novo. Mais uma vez, trabalhei na feira como voluntária, desta vez como figurante. É fantástico poder estar inserida neste ambiente durante dez dias seguidos. Agora, para o ano há mais.

Outfit // Summer Floral Dress

Dress - c/o Rire | Sandals - Jumbo | Bag - Primark | Watch - Parfois | Haircuff - Ebay
Seems incredible but I'm busier now on my vacations than when I was at school. I've been working as an actress in a medieval fair, hence my absence (a post dedicated to these medieval times will come!) and I'm afraid I'll be a bad blogger till the end of summer, given the immensity of things I'm going to do without a computer around.  However, I always try to update the blog. This time, with a super cute dress from Rire Boutique, which has an amazing back design. Besides that, it has an unusual and beautiful floral pattern. Even the fabric is funny, full of small cuts. In short, love this dress.
Parece mentira mas ando mais ocupada agora em tempo de férias do que quando andava em aulas. Estive a trabalhar como figurante na Viagem Medieval em Santa Maria da Feira, daí a minha ausência (um post dedicado a isso virá!) e temo não vir a ser muito assídua na blogosfera durante o resto do…
