Travelling // A week in Algarve

Image
EN 
A few weeks ago, I headed to Algarve (Portugal) for some vacation days. Algarve is so nice: long sunny days without wind, which allows you to stay on the beach until 9 pm, warm nights where it's not necessary to wear a coat, beautiful beaches with warm water and breathtaking landscapes. Don't get me wrong, my whole country has beautiful beaches, but I'm not a fan of cold water (I live on the north, so you know, "Winter is coming"). Made an awesome boat trip in Lagos, went for the animated Albufeira nights and fell in love with a vegan restaurant in Portimão (miss it already). And I got myself a nice tan! Which almost disappeared already, damn it.

Há umas semanas atrás, rumei ao Algarve, para uns dias de sol, calor e descanso. 
Já não ia para o sul do país há alguns anos, e logo no primeiro dia relembrei-me porque é que as terras algarvias são tão agradáveis: dias longos sem ventos frios, que me permitiam ficar na praia até às 9…

Web finds // Awesome Instagram account: Punnypixels

EN Do you like a good pun? Well, how does illustrated puns sounds to you? Found Punnypixels Instagram through my daily graphic design readings and instantly felt in love with these cute and clever illustrations. A few ones will be hard for non-designers, I guess, but most of them will be understood by everyone - and they're so funny! Go check it, trust me. 
PT Quem aqui gosta de trocadilhos? E se os trocadilhos forem ilustrados? Punnypixels é a minha mais recente descoberta no Instagram e é já uma das minhas contas favoritas.  Encontrei estas ilustrações durante as minhas leituras diárias em blogs sobre design gráfico e perdi-me logo de amores por estas ilustrações coloridas, inteligentes e bem-humoradas. Algumas piadas são direccionadas para designers, mas a maioria é perceptível para todos. Ora vejam lá:

And now in pastel colors, aren't these cute? My favorite is "Emotional Baggage".


Outfit // A cute top and some self-consciousness

Top - c/o Zaful | Blazer - Lefties | Shorts, Bag, Rings & Necklace - Primark | Watch - Casio
I'm in love with my new crop top from Zaful. It's feminine, delicate, fresh and it's possible to wear it without extra clothing pieces underneath (for opacity, you know). Another great thing about the top is that I've never seen one similar at the shopping stores. 
My idea was to combine it with high waisted shorts, but my boyfriend chose these denim shorts instead and well, I gave it a try. Tried to balance the casual denim shorts and top look with a blazer (my favorite one, actually). Truth is, I regretted listening to my boyfriend, felt kinda uncomfortable with so much skin showing. I look at this pictures and think "too much skin, no no no". In future, I think I'll focus on safer choices, - aka my usual high waisted skirts.

Ando enamorada pelo meu novo top da Zaful. É delicado, fresco e o forro faz com que seja possível usá-lo sem ser necessário vestir outras…

New in // White clothes for a tanned skin

All items c/o Zaful
Hello everyone! Just returned from some nice vacations in Algarve (Portugal) and I had a nice surprise when I got back home: there was an order from Zaful waiting for me, with three amazing items to show my new tanned skin. 
It was coincidence ordering three white items, but a happy one, because with this warm weather, white is the best color to wear. So my wardrobe for this season has been enriched with a beautiful lace crop top (with a beige interior to hide my "girls"), a knit crop top (will wear it at the beach, I guess) and a fresh backless dress.
Absolutely loved all the items and can't wait to wear them, I'll show you later how they look when worn! 

Hello everyone! Voltei de umas breves férias no Algarve e tinha à minha espera em casa uma encomenda da Zaful que veio mesmo a calhar para mostrar o meu recém-adquirido bronzeado. Ora assim até dá gosto voltar das férias.
Foi coincidência encomendar três artigos brancos, mas uma coincidência feliz, p…
