Merry Christmas, world!

So, Christmas is just around the corner, these past few weeks I haven't stopped because of all the preparations for the big night. Yesterday we did back home a Christmas dinner, since G will spend the night of 24 with his mom. There were small gifts, delicious desserts, music, laughter... It was great!
As I don't know if I'll be able to come here before Christmas Day, I wish you all a bright and joyful Christmas!

Friday wishlist

Hi guys! Here's another collection of random things that are on my wishlist.
1. earrings | 2. cup and saucer | 3. art print | 4. iPhone 5s | 5. cutting board | 6. journal

 I love simple jewelry, and these earrings have my name written all over them!

 Lately it has been too cold around here, nothing better than a warm cappuccino in this lovely cup.

 A giant poster above our bed, that's what I need! Tiger says meow by RK // DESIGN seems perfect.

 I've always had an android phone, yet I firmly believe that apple always has the best apps, or at least has the coolest ones first. Maybe it's a case of the grass is always greener on the other side of the fence, but I don't know... Is it? So an iPhone would be an excellent Christmas gift!

 The other day I saw this cutting board on pinterest and fell in love.

 Loved the idea of answering a different question every single day in this journal, and later be able to compare my answers year after year and see how I changed ... or not.

I wish you all an awesome weekend!

Lisbon, here we go!

Yesterday we finally booked an apartment for New Year's Eve. Last year we stayed in Lisbon, so this year, to be different, we had thought to spend the night in Serra da Estrela, in a nice and typical stone house with a fireplace and possibly snow outside. But, at the last minute, we decided to go again to our beloved Lisbon. We loved it there! So we booked a small apartment in Rua Augusta (in the photo below), right in the city center, a few meters away from where the fireworks will be. I'm so excited!

Friday wishlist

It's Friday again! Time flies!

On my wishlist today are some of my recent favorites.

Cookware that matches perfectly with the kitchen of my dreams that I showed you the other day.

New year is just around the corner and this planner looks lovely!

I'm obsessed with this jacket. It's so perfect!

Lace is seen everywhere lately, and this bra is just adorable.

Finally, to always have on hand in the bathroom. Loved it!

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving!

In my country, we don't celebrate Thanksgiving, though, since this blog has visits from American friends (hi America!), I thought it would be nice if I wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving!

Kitchen inspiration

At the beginning of the year I made a list of resolutions for the new year. One of the topics was organize our home. I have been very lazy in regards to this list, it is true, I admit it! But it's never too late!
One of the parts of the house most needy of a makeover, is the kitchen, without a doubt! It is (no exaggeration here) the ugliest kitchen I've ever seen.
Here is my inspiration to start changing our kitchen. Little by little I get there! I promise!

Friday wishlist

Well, I don't know about you, but I have a wishlist that has no end, which is always renewing itself. So I thought, why not share here on the blog some of the things that are part of this list? Simple things that can be fashion, travel, beauty products, technology, whatever you can remember. I chose Fridays to do this because, well, no reason. Because I felt like it! It's a good day to dream, plan, whatever, right?

Most things can be found on my Pinterest, as well! If you want you can follow me there too!

Have a great weekend!

Not a beauty blog, but... #2

(photo by Victor Cavazzoni)
I don´t know if you guys remember, but some months ago I decided to try this Serum by L'OrĂ©al, in order to reduce post acne marks. It ended last July, and I used it every single day. On the first days, I used it twice, in the morning and by night, but my skin just got more oily, so I started to use it only by night before bed.

When the bottle came to an end, I decided not to buy it again since (I thought at the time) I didn't see big differences in my skin. However, during the period of time that I used the serum, I received several compliments on my skin luminosity. At the time, I didn't relate it to the daily use of the serum, but the fact is that I stopped receiving such compliments since I quit using it.

So I'm reconsidering buying it again. Who doesn't like compliments? Right?!
