An Easy Way to Choose What to Wear

An easy way to choose what to wear is to ask yourself: “What will I wear today?” And then follow the first image or suggestion that comes to your mind. That’s what I did with this outfit I’m wearing on the post and what I do for practically every outfit I wear. It’s not infallible but it works almost every time :) The audio is in Portuguese but I promise I’ll start making the audios in English soon :). Basically I talk about how, when you really know your style, what you love and the basic rules of styling, you create outfits you love to see on you, and you feel so comfortable and happy about your style that you stop worrying about what other people think. Uma maneira fácil de escolheres o que usar é perguntares a ti própria: “O que vou usar hoje?” E seguires a primeira imagem ou sugestão que te…

Nothing Goes Out of Fashion & Old Fashionable Look

Do you think you can’t wear certain pieces because they’re out of fashion? What I realised over the many years in which I like my style is that almost nothing goes out of fashion, in the sense that we can’t wear it because it doesn’t look good. There are season’s trends, that we can choose to wear or not. But we can also were all the pieces that aren’t a trend. Today I have some photos of an old look (because I didn’t have time for a photoshoot for this week ;)), and as you can see I could wear it today. I also did a video but it’s in Portuguese. I’m going to do more videos (in English too), and I decided that I don’t need to wear makeup or look very put together, or I won’t do anything at all. Goodbye to perfectionism once and for all :)…

Mini Vacay to Recharge Batteries

By the end of last week I was feeling super tired, worried and in need of a vacation. Why? Well, because there’s been so many changes in my life lately that I can’t even stop to breathe. In one year I changed homes twice. I rented my house for a year and that ended in 6 months (it didn’t go very well) and then in Airbnb all Summer. My kids changed school to a completely different area. We sold two cars and bought one. I had a housekeeper and then I hadn’t, I had another one and then I hand’t again, and now I’m hiring someone new (for someone who has 3 kids a housekeeper is REALLY important ;)). And now I have another thousand decisions to make! So I decided to take a vacation. Ideally I’d go for one or two weeks ;) But because we need to work,…

Mini Férias para Carregar Baterias

No final da  semana passado estava super cansada, preocupada e a precisar de umas férias. Porquê? Bem, porque as alterações na minha vida têm sido tantas que não dá para respirar. No espaço de um ano e pouco já mudei de casa duas vezes. Aluguei a minha casa com contrato durante 1 ano que passou a 6 meses (correu bastante mal) e no Airbnb as férias todas. Os meus filhos mudaram de escola para uma zona completamente diferente. Vendemos dois carros e comprámos um. Tive empregada deixei de ter, tive outra vez e deixei de ter e vou agora contratar uma pessoa nova (para quem tem três filhos uma empregada é MUITO importante ;)). E agora tenho mais mil decisões para tomar! De maneira que decidi mesmo tirar umas férias. De uma semana ou duas seria o ideal ;) Como temos que trabalhar, fiquei-me por um fim de semana, mas soube mesmo muito…

How to Have Beautiful Skin

There are lots of ways to learn how to have beautiful skin. The last time I went to the dermatologist, he told me: “- Your skin looks very dull, let’s start by taking care of your skin.” He gave me a lot of very good creams and I noticed the difference. This time I was going to go there again but instead I decided to follow Sofia Vergara’s advice. She’s an actress in the “Modern Family” series, that I love to see with my kids. She’s my age and has great skin (at least it looks like she has ;))! She says that she always used Creme de La Mer (and started many years ago) so I decided to give it a try. You probably already heard about it because the cream is pretty famous. Because it’s expensive and because it makes a difference ;) I only started using it…

Como Ter uma Pele Bonita

Há várias maneiras de saberes como tratar da tua pele. Da última vez que fui ao dermatologista, disse-me: “- Tem a pele muito baça, vamos começar por tratar da sua pele.” Deu-me uma data de cremes muito bons e notei diferença. Desta vez estava para ir novamente lá mas resolvi seguir antes os conselhos da Sofia Vergara. É actriz na série “Uma Familia Moderna” que adoro ver com os meus filhos. Tem a minha idade e uma pele óptima (pelo menos parece ;))! Como ela diz que o que sempre fez foi usar o Creme de La Mer (usa há vários anos) resolvi experimentar. Provavelmente já ouviste falar do creme porque é bastante famoso. Por ser caro e por fazer diferença ;) Só comecei a usar agora e ainda não sei bem os resultados finais. Mas estou a gostar da experiência, nem que seja porque já que o comprei agora…

What to Buy in Sales (and what I Bought)

Sales are a bit irresistible to me… ;) It’s a good time to buy clothes because you can get pieces at a much better price, but sometimes it takes courage because of all the confusion going on in stores. The best time is right in the morning because everything is more organised and there’s less people. I like to go to sales in the beginning because there are more pieces. And then in the end because there are super cheap things and sometimes you find a cute piece. On the flip side, at that time you won’t find a lot of pieces. To help you choose in the middle of all the confusion, here are some ideas, from pieces I bought and others I wouldn’t mind buying (and I might still buy some ;)). I chose simpler and more basic pieces but sales are a great time to buy trendier…
