    MORNING SKINCARE ROUTINE

    As promised, here is my morning skincare routine. Mind you I do not use all of these products every single day, I sometimes rotate them or others just keep it simpler - it depends on how much time I have in the morning. In case you missed my previous skincare post, note that my skin is combination/normal and that my main concerns are congested pores and sensitivity. My skin is also eczema prone and very textured, which I hate but still haven't found a product that can help me with that. In addition to using all these products (and trust me, I keep it simple...) I try to eat healthy…

    CYCLING SHORTS

    I had mixed feelings about wearing cycling shorts outside the gym (not that I ever go there...) but while swapping them around with my jeans I saw most looks worked surprisingly well. Not only are they super comfortable, they are also very versatile: you can wear them with a blazer and chunky sneakers (like I'm wearing in a picture) or with a denim jacket instead or even with an oversized shirt and some ankle boots; the combinations are endless. Too bad I just can't wear them to work... Last weekend I wore them with a checked blazer from H&M, New Balance sneakers and an oversized T. I added the links…

    YEEHAW BOOTS

    Everyone seems to be going western this fall and we cannot wait for boot weather to finally arrive in Lisbon! In case you want to channel your inner cowgirl and not look like you're wearing a costume (it's not Halloween just yet...) we leave you our favorite cowboy(ish) boots of the season - so far. You can wear them with pretty much anything. Enjoy and splurge away, you deserve it! Mal podemos esperar que o tempo de usar botas chegue a Lisboa - estar a trabalhar com 33 graus em Outubro não vai com nada! No caso de quererem canalizar a vossa 'inner cowgirl' e não parecerem estar a usar um…

    THE CHECKED BLAZER

      Blazers are so versatile! But probably the most versatile of them all is the checked. You can wear it with sneakers, boots, heels,  jeans, dresses... the list goes on. I own a few but this one from Zara is my most recent purchase. It has the perfect color combination for fall (and mind you, I am usually an 'all black everything kind of girl', but this one really caught my eye) and I can even wear it to work. In here I combined it with a pair of high waisted straight leg jeans (also from Zara) and a simple black t-shirt (my favorite silk blend from H&M) but I…

    CORDUROY IS BACK!

    As you may have already noticed (to the shock of some of us) the corduroy fabric we hated so much as kids is back in full force… except we love it now!! And because we are so good to you, we have gathered what we think are the most affordable corduroy showstoppers of the season. We hope you like it! _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ [PT] Como já se devem ter apercebido (e para o choque de alguns/algumas de nós) a bombazina que tanto odiávamos em criança está de volta em grande força… a diferença é que agora nós adoramo-la!! E porque somos tão vossas amigas, seleccionámos as peças de bombazina que consideramos as…

    CAUDALIE VINOPURE

      I have always been a huge fan of Caudalie so I could not wait to try their new fragrance free release: Caudalie Vinopure. Even though this routine was made for combination to oily skin and my skin nowadays is more normal/combination I feel this works wonders on me during warmer days. For a long time I used the Caudalie Vinosource mattifying fluid but after almost a year (together with other ‘harsher’ products) my skin started getting too sensitive. This is why I now try to always get fragrance free products and have been really seeing a difference in the overall health and look of my skin.   The toner…
