Outfit // Casual Week Day

Image
This is a basic outfit for a cold work day: basic jeans, a warm blouse, a knit sweater and boyish shoes.
Detalhes de um conjunto simples para dias simples: jeans, camisa quente, camisola de malha e uns sapatos rasos.  (Estas fotos vêm com delay, voltei a escurecer o cabelo, prefiro ver-me morena!)

Beauty // Anti-Age Travel Kit

Image
Last Christmas, received from Boots Laboratories a discovery kit with three products from the Serum7 Lift collection - a range of beauty products for more mature skins. Don't have wrinkles yet, but I liked the products anyway. The kit came with a Firming Day Cream, a Deep Wrinkle Repair Serum and a Skin Reviving Cleansing Lotion, all in travel size (they are perfect to pack for a weekend-off!). Like all Boots Laboratories products I tried so far, these are quite good: the Day Cream and the Repair Serum aren't oily and work well on a dry skin and the Cleansing Lotion perfectly removes light makeup, but it isn't indicated for heavier makeups, with glitter eyeshadows or waterproof mascaras. As for the repair of deep wrinkles, I cannot verify it obviously.
Pela altura do Natal, recebi em casa um kit da Boots Laboratories que dá a conhecer três produtos da gama Serum7 Lift da marca - uma gama para peles mais maduras. Rugas, só tenho de expressão, mas gostei dos produtos na mesma.…

Outfit // Delicate Bordeaux

Dress - c/o Rosewe | Coat -  c/o Choies | Gloves & Belt - Primark | Boots - Only2Me | Rings - Pimkie 
How I missed wearing a feminine dress! In these winter days were 70% of my outfits are made of warm and fluffy sweaters, a girl starts to miss a more girly and sexy look, so when I received this lovely dress from Rosewe I was pretty pleased with it. It's a bordeaux lace dress with a beautiful neckline and it fits perfectly on the body. There was a problem with it at start: the ink dyed my hands and bag, so I had to wash the dress to remove the excessive ink (problem solved now!). I like the dress so much I think I might but it in blue too.  Wore it on a sunny day, with a black coat and accidentally matching gloves, and felt really good.
Andava a sentir falta de usar vestidos femininos agora no Inverno (quando as malhas ocupam 70% do espaço no armário), pelo que este vestido da Rosewe foi uma peça que recebi com agrado. É todo rendado, tem um bonito decote em coração e assenta m…

Tech & Freebie // February Wallpaper

Image
It’s a habit o’mine to change my wallpaper once per month. So every new month, it’s my task to search the web for a new cute wallpaper with calendar. This month I couldn’t find one I really liked, so I decided to make my own. I’m sharing it with you now, you're free to download it if you wanna use it! There are five versions: dark blue, baby blue and pink, with or without calendar. Hope you enjoy it. 
Tenho como hábito mudar o wallpaper do meu portátil todos os meses de acordo com o mês em questão, logo todos os meses tenho que procurar pela internet um novo wallpaper com calendário para substituir o anterior. Ora em Fevereiro, à falta de um que me tenha enchido as medidas, decidi abrir o Photoshop e fazer um, que agora venho partilhar convosco. Há cinco versões: em azul escuro, azul claro e rosa, com e sem calendário.

Beauty // Dark Green Nails

Image
When in summer, I like to dress my nails in bright colorful nail polishes, but during winter I prefer darker richer tones, like this beautiful green from Dermacélsia. The nail polishes from this brand are always a good surprise: great quality at a very low price, how nice is that. 
Tal como no Verão prefiro pintar as minhas unhas com tons claros, alegres e brilhantes a condizer com o sol e calor, no Inverno prefiro ter as minhas unhas vestidas com tonalidades escuras. Este verde escuro é coleção de Outono/ Inverno da Dermacélsia, uma marca de vernizes que já há muito tempo vem provando a sua qualidade. Same old, same old: boa cobertura, durabilidade razoável e excelente preço. 

Tech // Apps for Woman #1 - Multimedia

Image
When chatting with a friend about smartphones, I realized it isn't always easy to find nice apps that we, woman, like and/or need. Male friends and boyfriends aren't very useful when it comes to sugest lifestyle, fitness, cooking, travel and photography apps, so it's up to us to find them. So I decided to share with you the ones I use on a regular basis, in a few posts. They're mostly free apps and available both for Iphone and Android. This first post is about Multimedia apps! 
Em conversa com uma amiga, percebi que nem sempre é fácil encontrar boas aplicações para smartphones que nós, mulheres, gostamos e/ou precisamos. Os amigos e namorados nem sempre dão sugestões úteis quando perguntamos por apps relacionadas com hábitos diários, fitness, cozinhados, viagens e fotografia (entre outros temas), por isso cabe a nós procurar aquelas que nos enchem as medidas. Decidi então partilhar convosco as que uso regularmente, numa série de posts. São maioritariamente gratuitas e…
