Beauty // Nail Tattoos

Image
If you like pretty manicures with lovely details but you don't have time, talent or patient to make them yourself, temporary nail tattoos are the perfect solution.  They're super easy to apply: just crop the chosen image from the set, remove the transparent foil, press the drawing against the nail and soak it with water, removing it gently after this. They last about 3-5 days on the nails and a top coat makes them look even better. My favorite ones are the animal silhouettes and I prefer to see the tattoos with a bright shine-free nail polish color. You can find them at Fake Tattoos. The website not only sells nail tattoos but also body tattoos, with very good prices and free shipping!
A quem, como eu, gosta de manicures bonitas com pormenores que chamam a atenção, mas não tem nem paciência nem tempo para andar a fazer experiências com vernizes, estas tatuagens temporárias para unhas da Fake Tattoos são a solução perfeita. A aplicação é muito fácil: recortar a imagem escolhida, …

Outfit // Tartan is still trendy

Dress - c/o OMGFashion | Jacket & Ring - Primark | Bag - H&M | Earrings - C&A | Necklace - c/o Freena
Proud owner of another tartan item! This pretty dress has two fabulous things: the top is elastic - it means it will fit you perfectly and you don't have to worry if it will fall out (and there's no ugly zippers, hurray) - and it has a push-up effect, you can wear it without a bra and still get a beautiful cleavage. It's a bit cold to wear it solo, but with a jacket there's no problem at all. It's from OMG Fashion and it's the first item I received from this brand - not a single bad thing to say, great quality and good service.  With such a bold pattern, the best option is to wear discrete accessories. Chose my lovely minimal necklace from Freena, with a teardrop pendant. Incredibly simple but surprisingly beautiful.
Mais uma peça tartan no meu armário. Este vestido tem duas coisas muito boas: a parte de cima é elástica, o que significa que se agarra…

Must-see Blogs // Paige Joanna

Image
Paige's beautiful red hair, her many girlie polka-dot and lace dresses, the lovely design and appealing writing on her blog are some of the many reasons I really really like her style and her blog, Paige Joanna
Não sei se é do lindo cabelo vermelho, se é dos vestidos girlie com muitas polka-dots, rendas e corações ou se é do design fofinho e dos textos expressivos do blog dela, mas eu gosto muito do estilo e das fotos desta rapariga, Paige Joanna.

My pet says yummy! // January Pet Secret Box

Image
This was the January Pet Secret Box my pet received (yes, I'm late in my postings, sorry!). Six new products for my dog to try: Delicious apple and bacon snacks, food and another bone - that my pet was looking forward to chew, like you can see in the picture. Besides all the food, the box also came with a floor cleaner to keep my home floor all cleaned up and hair free and a toy. Petra loved the ball, it's her favorite toy, like you can see in this little video on my instagram! If you don't know that the Pet Secret Service is check this post where I explain everything. 

Esta foi a caixa Pet Secret recebida em Janeiro (shame on me, estou atrasada nas minhas publicações), seis novos produtos chegaram para alegria da minha cadela. Snacks nutritivos de maçã e bacon (até eu fiquei com vontade de comer aquilo sinceramente, tinha mesmo bom aspeto!), ração seca, ração húmida, mais um osso para roer - pode-se ver pela foto que a Petra estava mortinha por espetar os dentes nele. Alé…

Lifestyle // In Good Company

last picture by Joana
A few weeks ago went to a Flea Market with some blogger friends, Joana (To Infinity and Beyond) and Rita (In the Box World). Bought very few things - some lovely dishes and a delicious strawberry cheesecake - but I always enjoy these markets, they have such a magic atmosphere! Loud music, unexpected things, homemade sweets... What's not to like! Then went for a hot cocoa with these girls, it was a good afternoon. 
Já foi há algumas semanas que numa tarde solarenga rumei ao Porto para ir até a um Flea Market com a Joana do To Infinity and Beyond e a Rita do In the Box World. Comprei muito pouca coisa - uns pratos amorosos que eram verdadeiras pechinchas e uma fatia de cheesecake maravilhosa - mas eu gosto sempre de ver toda a parafernália própria destes mercados - música alta, bugigangas variadas, doces caseiros com óptimo aspeto... Seguiu-se um belo chocolate quente no Costa café e uns dedos de conversa. Serões assim são para repetir!

Beauty // A Lip Tint, an Eyebrows Kit and a Foundation from Bell Cosmetics

Image
Bell Cosmetics is a cosmetic brand from Poland that offers quality products at very low prices. All the packaging looks super pretty, bonus points for that! Tried three different products from the brand: a lip tint, an eyebrows kit and a foundation (my favorite!).
A Bell Cosmetics é uma marca de cosmética originária da Polónia, que oferece produtos de qualidade a preços reduzidos. Todas as embalagens têm um óptimo aspeto e só tenho pena que actualmente só tenha um espaço de venda físico no Dolce Vita Tejo (ainda bem que vendem online!). Tive a oportunidade de experimentar três produtos da marca: Um lip tint, um kit de sobrancelhas e uma base iluminadora (a minha favorita!). 
Eyebrows kit - This kit is available in two shades: blondes and brunettes. Chose the blondes tone but was a wrong choice, my eyebrows are too dark. However my mom has blonde eyebrows so I'll give it to her. The kit has two different shadows and a brush. It costs 6,50 euros. 
Kit de Sobrancelhas - Este kit está d…

Outfit // Crop sweater and a beret

Image
Jumper - c/o 6KS | Skirt - Lefties | Boots - Primark | Bag - H&M | Beret - Parfois
Here comes the sun! Left the black tights at home and showed some leg. When I feel lazy and don't know what to wear, my solution is mixing a preppy skirt with a loose sweater. Comfy shoes for walking too. This was a bad hair day so I made a braid, added a beret and voilá, ready to go!  The lovely sweater is from 6KS, was designed to be loose but short, so I prefer to wear it with skirts that hide my belly. The fabric is good quality and the hearts are just adorable. Great color for Spring, will wear it a lot I'm sure - if you're interested, it's available here for less than 30 euros with free shipping here (you're welcome!).
Eis que vem um bocado de sol que me permitiu deixar de lado os collants pretos de lado e mostrar a perna. Quando não tenho grande vontade de escolher o que vestir, esta é a conjugação que faço sempre: uma saia rodada e uma camisola larga. Como ia caminhar escol…
