Maybe you already know these pictures, but recently I've come across these photographs from Murad Osmann, of his girlfriend dragging him around the world and I fell in love with the concept. Now I want even more to go travelling around the globe with my sweetheart.

Penpals & St. Valentine's chocolate

segunda-feira, 11 de fevereiro de 2013

One of my hobbies since a teenager was having Penpals. I always loved trading snail mail with friends I was able to make around the world! It was such joy and fun. Even today I maintain some friends from those times, and they are really precious to me. 
This week I received a super package from my girl friend from Japan. I always loved Japan and I really want to visit some day, so having a Japanese friend is something I really treasure. We've become really close all this time.
She is so sweet and unbelievable generous, and this time around she showered me with Studio Ghibli goodies and St. Valentine's chocolate. In Japan it is a habit to offer not only your boyfriend/girlfriend chocolate, but as well, to your friends. It is called "Friend choco", so she sent me a Hello Kitty box. The chocolate was strawberry flavored and oh so good! 
I'm going to answer her right now and send her to some tasty chocolate. <3

How about you? Ever had penpals? <3

Lately I've been quite excited about the upcoming seasons of spring and summer. I know I've mentioned this before, but there have been such nice announcements of concerts and festivals here in Portugal that I can't help but think about it. I love music so much and I love all that boho style around the festival scene, it's such a young and fresh style and it really makes me happy.
So bearing this in mind, and making a mental note that I really need this pieces in my wardrobe, I've been on a scavenger hunt in the Brandy & Melville website. Do you know this brand? Their collection it's filled with such beautiful attires that just make me swoon! Here are some lovely itemsthat  I picked up.

Agathe Skeleton tank | $ 17 

Bettina hoodie | $ 29

Jada dress |  $ 32

Arrow bracelet | $ 5

What do you think? =)

segunda-feira, 21 de janeiro de 2013

Hello! How was your weekend? Mine was pretty calm and chilled since the weather wasn't good for making any plans. However it's always the small things that count so, here are some small stuff that made me happy these days:

Olá! Como foi o vosso fim-de-semana? O meu foi bastante calmo pois o tempo também não ajudou para fazer planos. No entanto acho que são as pequenas coisas que contam, então aqui estão algumas pequenas coisinhas que me fizeram feliz nestes dias:

This tea tastes so good <3 I invite you  to try it! In these cold days it's all we need.
Está chá é tão saboroso! <3 Convido-vos a provar! Nestes dias frios acho que é tudo o que precisamos.

I found these movies on sale and couldn't resist!  Absolutely two of my favourites
Encontrei estes dois filmes nos saldos e não pude resistir! Sem dúvida dois dos meus favoritos

Donuts my boyfriend offered me, they were SO tasty! I felt a bit like Homer Simpson eating them *Mmm Sprinkles*
Donuts que o meu namorado me ofereceu, eram TÃO bons! Senti-me um bocadinho como o Homer Simpson enquanto comia *Mmm Sprinkles*

Movie inspiration: Empire Records

sexta-feira, 18 de janeiro de 2013

The 90's were the decade of Grunge, poetic romances, music and vinyl obsession, loud parties and secret meetings between giggles and coca cola. In Empire Records the 90's revive, Liv Tyler, who plays Corey Mason appears as the style icon. If you like this time check out the little inspiration board Corey helped me complete. And don't forget to check the movie out :)

Os anos 90 são a década do Grunge, dos amores e desamores poéticos, da obsessão pela música e pelas lojas de vinis, pelas festas ruidosas e pelos encontros secretos entre risos e coca-cola.
Em Empire Records os 90's revivem enérgicamente, Liv Tyler, que interpreta a personagem de Corey Mason aparece como um icone irresistivel deste estilo. Se gostam desta época checkem o pequeno quadro de inpiração que a Corey me ajudou a completar, e não deixem de ver o filme :)

quinta-feira, 17 de janeiro de 2013

It's still early to dream with warmth and sun kissed skin, with fresh flowers aroma in the air, with summer festivals, and with starred skies in a warm night. However, with the start of the new year, it's almost impossible not to think about the possibilities of the upcoming seasons, and with that in mind, nothing better than to set up a wishlist of the little things I would like to join me this year in the warmer weather. How about you? Do you have anything in mind to add up to the closet?

Ainda é cedo para sonharmos com o calor e a pele beijada pelo sol, com o aroma das flores a encher o ar
, com os festivais de verão e com o céu banhado de estrelas numa noite quente. Mas com o inicio do novo ano, é quase impossível não pensar nas possibilidades das estações que se aproximam, e com isso nada melhor do que preparar uma wishlist das coisinhas que gostava que me viessem fazer companhia no tempo ameno. E vocês, já têm alguma coisinha em mente para acrescentarem ao armário?

1. Mochila
2. Fita para o cabelo
3. Óculos de sol redondos
4. Bikini bandeau
5. Calções de ganga
