Obsessing: Lace Dress

You know that feeling you get when you spot 'the' right thing?

One of my friends is getting married this September (I know, there's still a long time coming, but I can use that as an excuse to look for gorgeous dresses, right?), so I let my imagination run wild and started looking for nice dresses.

My heart skipped a beat when I laid eyes on this one:


                                       



I understand that lace  (anywhere but your undergarments) can be a tough thing to pull off, but I really think this dress manages to combine the perfect amount of lace, without making it too lingerie like.

I instantly knew it'd inevitably come to my closet. I mean, there's something us girls can do, like, seeing something you really like and immediatly starting building the whole look in our minds.

So, it's pretty obvious I already know how I'd like to accessorize it, and I'll obviously make a post out of it, so you can let me know your thoughts on it.

Is it party dress material? What do you think?

Obsessing - Selma Handbag

As every other girl, I'm a little bit obsessive when it comes to accessorizing.

Sure, I love shoes, jewelry and everyting in between, but for the past few months, I've been secretly (my sister, boyfriend and bff might disagree on my choice of words... oops!) dreaming about this beauty:


Michael Kors Selma handbag
The bright version

After a long chase online, and after getting my heart broken by seeing it 'Sold out' in a lot of shops, I had the greatest news. My sister couldn't keep her secret anymore, and told me that my birthday present was my beloved Selma!

So, the hunt was on! I pretty much raided all european online shops and even made my order, only to get my heart broken once again, as soon as I got the e-mail from the shop, refunding me the amount.

Well, I decided to take my chance and go to the brand store in the heart of Lisbon. I knew I had to bring little Selma home with me.

Once I got there, I felt a little divided by the regular one, and the bright one. I honestly couldn't decide which one I loved more, so I had to take my time to decide. I eventually decided that the regular one was more my ideal bag, just because it felt easier to dress up and down.

So, the ever gorgeous Selma is now sitting in my bedroom, inside her bag, waiting for my birthday to see the light of day!

Don't mind the smaller bag, I might have splurged on one more little thingy.


Just another 20 days, hon', hold on strong! :)

Reloading and planning

I don't know about you, but I'm pretty much a mess when the New Year arrives.

I eat and drink enough for a family of four people for a couple of weeks, and my body seems to need some time to get back on its feet (literally).

So, I'm not one of those people who likes to have all those wishes and ideas for the year to come. It usually takes me a few days to really understand what would make my year, a great year.

Just last week, it came to me in a flash: travelling.

That's what I want to do this year.

Travel a lot.

For the time being, the selected destinations are:

Paris (I know, I've been there for a few times, now, but I can't help myself but to return whenever I can).







London (also been there for a few times, but the last time was almost ten years ago!)






Amsterdam (never been, but always wanted to)






I'm hoping, the next post will feature all photos by me. This time around, only the photos from Paris are mine, the other are from the web.

Public transportation or 'How I loathe other people's scent'

I understand it's not always easy to a be on top of our game when it comes to hygiene. But we have to draw a line somewhere.
 
Maybe at bathing, everyone?!
 
Encouraging photo, in case anyone wonders what bathing is.
 
 
I find it really annoying to try to breathe normally, and have my nose filled with a smell that, in my mind, can only come from a decomposing body that hasn't been given a proper burial.
 
Now, you might disagree and have me believe that some people have hard jobs that require manual labor.
 
True.
 
But just let me ask you something: do all those people work late night shifts?
 
Because it really is appaling to smell so badly at 8' in the morning!
 
I'm pretty sure I frown even harder.

Christmas warning!

So, it's time that of the year again, when I spend more time shopping than I should.

Don't get me wrong, is not that I don't love shopping. It's just, I have too many relatives and friends. Well, I really don't have too many friends. Not good ones, at least. I just seem to miss the mark imagination-wise.


Dear friends and family, this comes as a warning:

Don't expect too much imagination. Everyone is getting their present, when the time comes, but just the old good things that can't go wrong, ok?

Just so you don't look too disappointed when you unwrap the dirty old socks! :P

Yes, I'm easy.

My sister went to Barcelona, Spain, with a friend for the weekend.

She basically made her friend hate me by constantly repeating the words: 'My sister would absolutely love this', related to monuments, shops, or streets.

There are only two explanations to this:

1. My sister and I know each other too well;

2. I like too many things.

Either way, I like to look at it as simple sisterly love :)


Our feet, early this year in our trip to Torino, Italy
Stepping on the bull, which the locals believe
ensures a year filled with good luck
