Beauty // Santa Claus is coming to town

Image
Dare to say it's already Christmas on my bathroom lately, thanks to Lush and it's amazing Christmas themed beauty products. I'm talking about Father Christmas bath bomb, Drummers Drumming bath foam and Reindeer Rock soap! All nice products, trust me. 
Já fui enchendo a banheira de espírito natalício durante este mês, graças à Lush e à sua bomba de banho Father Christmas, à espuma de banho Drummers Drumming e ao sabonete Reindeer Rock. Tudo coisas boas, como a Lush me habituou. 

Father Christmas Bath Bomb - It's always a pleasure to throw a bath bomb into the bathtub and watch the magic unfold. This time the tub was filled with green water and the popular Snow Fairy fragrance (which is popular for some reason) invaded the room. After a relaxing (and very long) bath, left the water in the tub, left home and when I returned hours later the amazing fragrance was still in the air. They cost 5.95 euros each, too bad because they would make the most fantastic air freshener.

Lifestyle // A walk to remember

Image
From my grandfather I inherit this desire to travel, to wander, to explore. He, who traveled all over my beautiful country and took the best of life with great humor, died recently. I don't share many details about my personal life on the blog, specially not so happy stories, but looking at these pictures, taken the day before, it seemed inevitable. Were taken in Mata of Bussaco here in Portugal, a place with immense beauty: an amazing old luxury hotel, lovely gardens, trails into the woods (in Autumn we can walk there eating the fallen chestnuts on the ground) and lakes in hidden corners. This place was explored by grandpa too once upon a time, he who knew that one of life's greatest pleasures is enjoying the beauty of nature. Thanks to him, I now understand that the best of life is laughing a lot, traveling with loved ones and never stop, 'cause you never know how much time you have to delay or forget these things.

Outfit // The Real Thing and Polka Dots

Image
Shirt - Primark | Skirt - H&M | Sneakers - Adidas c/o Hoodboyz | Bag - Vintage
Sometimes I don't feel like spending much time dressing up. In one of those days, my choice was a t-shirt, a basic black skirt and my prettiest sneakers, the Adidas grey polka-dots model, from Hoodboyz. They're super comfy and cute, always receive lots of compliments when wearing it. I mean, polka-dots sneakers? Perfection exists. I'm not fond of t-shirts (my friends probably never saw me wearing one), but don't I deny the comfort they provide. Bought this one just for worshiping the Coca-Cola branding (although I stopped drinking it a long time ago) and it's possibly the only shirt in my wardrobe right now.
Para um dia em que a vontade de me aperaltar não era muita, a minha escolha foi uma t-shirt assim-para-o-larga, uma saia preta básica e os meus ténis mais fofinhos, uns Adidas cinza às pintas brancas, da Hoodboyz. Além de super confortáveis, são lindos e muito cobiçados, não é tod…
