    Black Friday is just around and, for me, it’s the perfect opportunity to buy some investment pieces and get a head start with Christmas presents. My advice when it comes to this day is to have a list so you don’t make impulsive purchases (been there, done that) and do some research to make sure you’re actually getting the best price. Today I’ll show you some things that have been under my radar. Stay tuned for Silvia’s wishlist within the next days! Let us know what are you planning on buying next Friday 🙂 [PT] A Black Friday está à porta e, para mim, é a altura perfeita para investir…

    BOOKS OF 2018 (SO FAR) PART 2

    Here it is just as promised, the second part of my 2018 readings! If you missed the first part go have a read here. INTO THE WATER I've had already read the first book by Paula Hawkins, Girl on the train, and really enjoyed it. So when this book was released I got intrigued to read it and I found it to be more gripping than the first one. It starts with the death of Nel, who was investigating several mysterious deaths in the river that run by her childhood house. Some people think she jumped, others that she was pushed. Through the eyes of the several town residents and…

      Around this time of year there's so much beauty launches that it can be hard to keep up. That is without all the gift sets and Christmas editions (which is a whole other post). So I rounded up our makeup favorites so you don't miss a thing. I know the Smashbox foundation is not a new launch per se, but they released a bunch of new shades, and that's why it deserves a spot on the list. My personal picks out of this list are the the bareMinerals highlight, the Hourglass palette, and YSL lipstick. Add some concealer and mascara and you have a look! Let us know in the…

    Animal print is without a doubt THE trend for this fall! My favourite take for the day-to-day is to wear one print piece and keep the rest of the outfit simple. So far I've added to my wardrobe this cobra print loafers that I showed in here and this leopard print shirt. And I'm eyeing a Mango midi skirt, which is a very good alternative to the Realisation Par one! For this outfit I just paired this zara shirt with some skinny jeans and a biker jacket, black booties and a black tote. Switch the jeans for some leather trousers or shorts and a small crossbody bag and you have a…

    Well… black will always have a special place in our wardrobe. Still, khaki has been regaining its space and reputation as a neutral in recent years. And this fall khaki has been dominating! Whether in a trench, in a cargo jacket, or in trainers, you’ll find it everywhere. [PT] Bem… verdade seja dita o preto terá sempre um lugar especial nos nossos roupeiros. Ainda assim, o khaki tem ganho o seu espaço e reputação como um neutro nos últimos anos. E neste outono o khaki tem dominado! Seja numa gabardine, num casaco estilo militar ou nuns ténis, vais encontrá-lo por todo o lado. 1. Zara suede trench 2. Elise leather…

    BOOKS OF 2018 (SO FAR) PART 1

    I have always been a book worm, I have to admit. I go through so many books in a year, and I read a little of everything. However, to be honest, the master consumed so much time and energy, that I didn't read a single book for about a year. But as soon as things calmed down I got back into it! Here is the first part of the ones I managed to read so far in 2018.   HARRY POTTER AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN  The Harry Potter series always had a special place in my heart. Like most of you probably, I’ve read the books and seen the…

    I tend to use always the same type of products on my day-to-day routine. However, with fall around the corner I changed up a few things. I switched to a more hydrating base and warmer colors. Just keep reading to find out my go-to products. I don’t use primer on a daily basis, but whenever I do it’s the Smashbox Primerizer. For anyone with dry skin I can tell that this is one of the best I’ve had. It has a very light texture, leaves the skin moisturized and creates an amazing base for the makeup. The Dior Backstage foundation is one of my most recent purchases and I cannot…

      Dressing everyday for work can be a stressful task as you go through all combinations in your wardrobe trying to come up with different outfits. How many times did you find yourself looking to your closet in the morning with absolutely no idea what to wear? My first tip would be to pick your outfit the day before, but that’s not what I’m writing about today. In those days (which are a lot, truth be told) I rely on my ‘work uniform’: black skinny jeans (or trousers) and a blazer. Accessorise it with a belt and some cool shoes, like these amazing snake print Zara loafers, and you’re ready…
