Two Steps to Having the Style You Desire

Today I wanted to talk about what’s stopping you from having the style you desire. It’s easy to stay trapped and hidden in the limitations that the world gives us (and that you give yourself). For example, these types of thoughts: Style is easy for some people, but I’m not one of them Having style is difficult and it takes a lot of money to always look good I’ve tried and failed, it’s difficult for me, why is this time going to be different? That girl is skinny / young / cute, so it’s easy for her. Etc. What if I told you that it is possible, that it can be very easy and that anyone can have style? What if I told you that style has nothing to do with your age, your body, your weight or your idea of your beauty? Can you believe that? I wanted to tell…

The Key to Creating YOUR Personal Style

Wanna know how to create a more personal style? Then you’ll like to know that following your intuition is the fastest way to create and find YOUR style. It’s THE key ;) Something interesting happened to me today, more or less. I was walking down the street when I noticed a girl with a look that I loved. Similar to the one in the photo of the post (more or less because her pants were more beautiful and I added the bag and earrings ;)). So far nothing new, I’m always noticing what people wear, to take ideas ;). The difference was that I remembered that, a few days ago, I loved to see the same kind of pants, in another girl. Some time ago this probably wouldn’t change anything for me, because I wasn’t aware of my intuition, the ideas I got through the day. Now, when I notice…

Makeover: Alexandra’s Before & After

Do you like makeovers? I love to see and make them ;) Today I’m writing about Alexandra’s makeover. She gained some weight because she had two kids in a row. Her body changed so she didn’t know what to wear anymore. She was also feeling a little outdated – she did not know how to use some of the trends she saw other women using. And she had a common doubt: how to look chicer and less sporty / casual (she has to be practical and comfortable during the day but also look sophisticated for meetings during the day). I gave her some tips to favor her body right now. And to be able to use the new trends easily, and also create casual-chic outfits, I showed her my app that solves both situations. You can see more here. The looks we chose for the makeover have to do with lengthening Alexandra’s figure so she feels more elegant, and also wearing the pieces she likes the most…

I’m Back: Free Makeover in Lisbon + Some News

I’ve been working on the I’m Back – Your Makeover program. We’re offering a total makeover and photoshoot (and some more surprises) to one happy candidate ;) Alexandra is one of the women we’re helping. You can watch her story in the video below (it’s in Portuguese, but you can read the translation below the video) Alexandra wants the help of our I’m Back team because she had two kids in two years and gained some weight. So now she’s feeling insecure about what to wear and wants some help to feel good about the way she looks again. Last Saturday we went to the first anniversary of the NocasWay store, which is where we’ll choose the outfits for the makeover. It has lots of amazing pieces and I shared some of the bracelets I bought there on my instagram. You can watch a video of the store below: Some…

Two Easy Ways to Improve Your Style (Starting Today)

Remember when I took a mini-vacay some weeks ago? At the time I said that I was going to go another day with the whole family and we went, in the Carnival holidays. It was really fun because I didn’t know that Torres Vedras is famous for its Carnival parties, here in Portugal… so I wasn’t expecting to see so many adults dressed in fantasies, everywhere we went. ;) I’d never seen so many men disguised as women and women with fantasies of every kind (from a mini-mouse to a full on elephant). I actually went to a store to buy some fantasies and it was the Carnival mecca – rows and rows of Carnival outfits, wigs, all kind of accessories, etc. Before dinner we went for a walk but the music was so loud that we ran back to the hotel! We mostly stayed at the hotel though, and it…

How to Wear Ripped Jeans (7 Different Ways)

Ripped jeans are a very very VERY casual piece :) So, if you don’t want to look too casual, you need to combine them with more chic / put together / sophisticated pieces or tricks. When I bought my first ripped jeans I felt… powerful! Why? Maybe because it’s a piece I love. The pieces that we really love make us feel happy and that gives us power and energy. On the other side, when you put what you like first, you’re taking care of yourself and showing you think you’re important. A lot of women feel they have to put others first, to do what’s right, but we need to take care of ourselves first, so we can be at our best for the people around us. Ripped jeans aren’t the easiest piece to wear, because some people may react to them – they think you look sloppy. But in…

The Power of Beauty & House Transformation

Last week was chaotic ;)  So during the weekend I just relaxed and rested and I didn’t do any photoshoot. I decided to do a post about a house I remodelled ages ago. I love architecture and interior design and I think you probably like it too,  so I’m going to share  more about it here on the blog  :) I’m also gonna share my house because I’m always changing the decoration! Here are some photos of the before and after of the house I remodelled. I love remodelling houses because I love to see the transformation, I love to enter a old house and imagine how beautiful it can look and I love actually transforming it and see how it becomes amazing! I think beauty is really important to everyone, but for me, it’s especially important. One one side it’s related with feeling comfortable and well, because I just can’t feel comfortable or happy if I’m…
