Neutral Charm

The other day, while helping some friends set up their IKEA stuff at their new lovely place, I got to think how my taste and style has evolved through time. As much as I fancy a bright colored wall, over the years I’ve learned to appreciate the peaceful and timeless charm of a neutral based decor. It’s clean, it’s calming and it gives space for the light to shine in and through. I’ve had my…

Lose Yourself In the Music #6 – Girls Rule

Hello there, everyone! Hope everything’s great over that side of the screen. I would apologize for my lack of posting but, let’s be honest: it’s August - the last thing most of you have been thinking is ‘oh, damn, I haven’t checked that blog in ages!’, for sure…

Sales Finds

Sales_Finds// ZARA clutch (Pre-Summer/14)

When I started celebrating my upcoming holidays, everyone in Angola (well everyone, really) told me as soon as stepped foot in Portugal I would have the urge to buy buy buy – spend spend spend, because I’d been without it for so long. Turns out, as it happens with me in a lot of other things I realized I fall apart from that trend. So, before, I used to worry about…

Holiday Wishlist

Angola changed me in many ways, I believe. Or perhaps it didn’t. Perhaps it just exposed things about myself that were there all along. Besides matters of work, heart, friendships, family, basic needs and the value all those things have in my life, one of the best things to happen was the enhancing of that Less is Moremotto I was trying to adopt for awhile. I realized I don’t really need that…

7 months and 7 days (yes, I’m counting). Most people say you shouldn’t stay in Angola for more than 3 months straight – 4 tops! Well, I’m nearly doubling that line and I can’t say it’s been easy. I am a bit of a drama queen at times, I am aware of that, but this isn’t the case. To live here you need a certain support system. A…

8 Dreamy Workspaces

Let’s be honest: let’s say you work at an office, you have a job you love, as well as a good income and amazing colleagues. Great, now imagine you have all this but you work in a cubicle or a dark hole that sucks the life out of you. How would you say that motivates you day in day out? Probably not much (or maybe, that’s just me), hence the importance of having good ‘surroundings’ at work. Your…

Sofa Therapy #1

Saturdays used to be my favorite day of the week. Now not so much. I have to work Saturday mornings and that kinda blows the whole weekend off. Sundays, on the other hand, have me with mixed feelings, because it’s the only day off I have, but it is haunted by Mondays blues. Anyway, one of my favorite things to do in my free time has always been movie marathons. After all, a movie is always a good…
