Life, where am I? In the closet

Hey there!

Este título deu a entender que era uma confissão de “saída do armário” não deu? Ahaha mas não é guys, not yet… 😉 Descobri que não sei o que ando a fazer, por vezes estou tão determinada em seguir os sonhos mas por outras… é uma confusão! “É da idade”, talvez. Há coisas que me fazem feliz mas não há muito que me prenda e me faça pensar “eu quero fazer isto para o resto da vida”. Também sentem que estão atrasados no “saber o que querem”? É que há poucas coisas que eu tenho a certeza de que quero (como ter pernas muito magrinhas ou querer gelado de amarena) mas quanto ao resto sinto-me sem rumo. O pouco que sei é que gostava de sair daqui, de Tavira, de Portugal. E vocês, as vossas ideias, estão em ordem?

Don’t stress, rest!

Raramente descansava o suficiente até me aperceber das vantagens que isso traz. Dormir é a cura diária que todos os seres humanos precisam, pelo menos 8 horas é o suficiente para que a pele se regenere e consiga desempenhar o seu papel principal durante o dia – proteger-nos dos raios ultravioletas – a hormona do stress, o cortisol, diminui enquanto dormimos assim a pele pode reparar-se e a mente permanece serena (quanto menos dormires mais fraca fica a pele).

Li na Vogue Portugal do mês passado que dormir muito pouco pode também influenciar “a memória a curto prazo, o sistema imunitário, o metabolismo, torna-nos emocionalmente frágeis e até aumenta o peso e o perímetro abdominal” :O

É claro, não significa que não possa haver aquela fugida à regra, por vezes nem controlamos, ou vamos para a noite e só nos deitamos às tantas. No entanto é muito importante que tentemos estabelecer um horário para ir para a cama, acho que se sente logo diferença passado uns dias de bons sonos! Se normalmente chegas à tal altura da noite em que não consegues adormecer, tenta ler algo agradável, começa a sonhar acordada ou medita, são os meus truques poderosos 🙂

É realmente um luxo para a nossa saúde que durmamos relaxadamente e durante o tempo necessário para o nosso cérebro descansar.

Com amor,

I love to keep myself busy – I actually have enough geometry to keep me busy – but we must know how to divide things, rest is key. I didn’t used to get enough rest till I noticed the advantages it brings to our lives. Sleep is the daily healing every human being need, sleep at least 8 hours is enough to for the skin to regenerate and play its vital role during the day – protect us from ultraviolet rays – the stress hormone, cortisol, decreases during sleep so the skin can repare itself and our mind remains calm (the less you sleep the weaker your skin gets).

I read on Vogue Portugal of May that sleeping very little may impair short-term memory, the metabolism, immunity system, make us emotionally fragile, make us gain weight and even increase the abdominal perimeter :O

Of course it’s not always possible to get enough rest, sometimes we can’t even control, we go out at night and go to bed really late. However it’s essential to set a time to go to bed, I think that some days after great nights of sleep you immediately notice the difference! In case you get to that time of the night you can’t go back to sleep, try to read something nice, dream awake or meditate, those are my powerful tricks 🙂

It really is a luxury for our health that we sleep relaxed and for as long as it takes for our brains to rest.

Sincerely yours,

Puppy Love

Sabem o que é chegar a casa e terem o vosso cão a correr super feliz para vocês? Faz-me sentir a pessoa mais sortuda do mundooo! Ele não me deixa fazer yoga em paz, roí as minhas pantufas, os carregadores, o tapete, enfim tudo! Mas depois faz aqueles olhinhos de cachorrinho que eu não aguento. E ainda que tenha um buraco de 30 cm de profundidade à porta de casa, ele enche-me o coração por completo!


Do you know that feeling of getting home and your puppy is super happy to see you? It makes me feel the luckiest human aliveee! He does not let me do yoga peacefully, he gnawed my slippers, my charger, the carpet, everything! But then he does those cute puppy eyes and my heart melts. Yet I have this 30 cm deep hole, I love him unconditionally!

We must always be able to listen, learn and improve. Three years ago, while I was in England, I found a guy, siting in the middle of the street, singing Let it be. I found it so simple and beautiful, he wasn’t a great singer but he just caught my attention, so I sat down too, next to him. I started singing with him, and I’m an awful singer, people started noticing and filming us, they must have found it funny (or just found me terrible), and it was, it was soooo funny. It made me so happy in that moment. Oh, and a friend of mine came to sit with us what made it more special. What I actually mean is: we must appreciate the simple things in life, enjoy them slowly, and share it with the people we love.

Devemos estar sempre aptos a ouvir, aprender e melhorar. À três anos atrás, enquanto estava em Inglaterra, encontrei um rapaz, sentado no meio da estrada, a cantar Let it be. Achei isso tão simples e bonito, ele não era um grande cantor mas chamou-me mesmo à atenção, por isso sentei-me com ele. Comecei a cantar também, e eu sou uma péssima cantora, as pessoas começaram a olhar para nós e filmar-nos, provavelmente acharam engraçado (ou apenas acharam que eu cantava muito mal), e foi, foi muito engraçado. Esse momento fez me tão feliz. Ah, e uma amiga minha também se sentou connosco, o que ainda tornou o momento mais especial. O que eu quero dizer é que: devemos apreciar as coisas simples da vida, devagar para dar tempo de as saborear, e partilhá-las com as pessoas que mais gostamos.

Hi guys! I received some bad news about the tennis courts, I am not sure if I told you but they were being rebuilt and it’s still in construction, the bad news is that it won’t open that soon… so, I decided that I won’t play tennis by now. I’ll continue in yoga class and I am going to the gym to keep in shape as well. Yesterday I didn’t have school (yupii), therefore I took some photos with this super vintage shirt that I love. I adore the sleeves and the front part, also fits good with (basically) any denim jeans, I found it very lovely!

Olá pessoal! Recebi algumas más notícias a cerca dos campos de ténis, não sei se vos cheguei a dizer mas estavam a ser reconstruídos e ainda estão em obras, as más notícias é que não vão abrir tão cedo… por isso decidi que já não vou para o ténis, por agora. Vou continuar a fazer yoga e vou-me inscrever num ginásio para manter-me em forma. Ontem não tive aulas (yupii), portanto fui tirar umas fotos com esta camisa super vintage que eu adoro. Eu gosto muito das mangas e do detalhe da parte da frente, e fica bem com (praticamente) quaisquer calças de ganga, acho-a super querida mesmo!

Sincerely yours,

Lisbon Fashion Week 2017

BeFunky Collage

Hello hello! The tittle may make you think that I’ve attended to ModaLisboa SS18 (Lisbon Fashion week spring/summer 2018), which took place on 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th October, unfortunately that’s not true. Even so, I followed everything through the internet, so I decided to share my opinion with you guys.

CHRISTOPHE SAUVATLUIS CARVALHO

These are some pieces of the collections that I liked the most, the first one by Christophe Sauvat and the next one by Luís Carvalho. What I loved the most about the first collection were definitely its colors! This worldwide known brand has several cute dresses which fits perfectly in the spring/summer tones, I think their pieces give you a natural, simple, casual style. Luís Carvalho’s designs are absolutely WOW! The pastel tones, the cut of the dresses, the way it looks on the models’ waist and shoulders. Layered dressed are my favorites, it gives you movement and seems to enhance the reflexes, effectively a good choice to take on a date.

 

These two looks, by Duarte (brand from the designer Ana Duarte), really had my attention on. Following the brand concept of sportswear luxury, I think, she totally reached the meaning of the idea she intended, she succeed! The looks, and basically the entire collection, are practical and comfortable (at least it’s what it looks like) yet elaborated.

ss18_valentim_quaresma_26

Well guys (mostly girls now, right?), I have picked my top 3 favorite creations from ModaLisboa. The first and the second one are from Luís Carvalho (once again, because I really liked the collection) and the last one from Valentim Quaresma.

(1) In my opinion the dusty rose overall, made of cotton twill, is more appropriate for the beginning of spring, due to its material and for being a long leg overall. Its off shoulder (bateau) neckline, the buttons and the tight belt highlight the woman’s shape, what makes me love it more. I think it is so adorable, I adoreeee it! (2) The second design, the silk (I guess so) dress, makes me think about luxury, opulence and, at the same time, simplicity. The golden and the silver mixed together, transmit soft and elegant sensations, this dress is quite charming to wear on a exquisite event. (3) What I like in the last one is the brass top. This collection is supposed to represent determination, strength and power, and I think this top characterizes it all. It reminds me a fighter or a champion, I don’t know ahahah, but it is definitely delightful.

shoes2Heart eyes for this amazing shoe collection from Eureka.

 

Honestly, I was expecting much more from ModaLisboa SS18. However, I believe that all of them (designers and brands) have done their best and worked hard on it. Anyway, I am glad that, by doing this post, I’ve learn lots of new things and improved my knowledge about national designers, that until now I didn’t know that much, and about national fashion industry as well. By the way, I have something to tell you guys! By now I’ll try to be more precise with my posts, and I’ll post like two/three things a week 😀 (I’ll try!)

Sincerely yours,
