Accept Where You Are, Get What You Want

Sometimes it’s hard to accept where we’re at. And for me it became harder after my 40th birthday. Because – “Hello! I’m 40, ain’t I supposed to be at my destination by now?” My vague idea of what I wanted to happen in my life, didn’t get me to where I thought I wanted to be now. The truth is I’m not even sure that what I want is the best for me, because somethings I realized I didn’t really want some of my goals. The other day I read about how, when we reach a certain age and we still don’t have our dreams of having this or that (the ideal house, car, and all the things), maybe it’s better to try to understand what we REALLY want. Because maybe that’s not that. I didn’t like that idea, like I had to give up my dreams after a certain…

How to Wear Accessories + Look of the Week

Today I’m talking about one of the favourite style themes of (almost) all women… accessories ;) I don’t usually wear many accessories every day, so my initial look had just my usual rings… But then I felt like adding a necklace and more radical bracelet. You can watch the video where I talk about accessories below (and see my tattoos): How to Wear Accessories Accessories are pretty easy to wear.

Nothing Goes Out of Fashion & Old Fashionable Look

Do you think you can’t wear certain pieces because they’re out of fashion?

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,…
