Sea, decor and a house full of laughter!


One by one the waves broke
I was alone with the sand and the foam
Of the sea that sang just for me.

I have such a strong connection with the Sea.

Maybe in another life I could have been a Nereid or some sort of sea creature. In fact, all the elements connected to the sea exert a fascination over me, somewhat magnetizing and make me feel like I belong near them…I try to surround myself by sea elements as they naturally bring me inner peace and tranquility.

I don’t know if I told you this before but I moved relatively recently to an apartment and I still have a great deal of decorating to do, including the decoration of the living room which is currently a blank slate.

I’m definitely using these images as sources of inspiration!

Now that I come to think of it, I could sum up my dreams for the future this way: a house full of children, love and sea decor. :)

In times like this I feel so lucky I was born and raised in this seaside corner of the planet (universe?).

Oh, and the poem above is from my favourite female poetess of all times. In my teen years I would stay up late reading her poetry and I could never get enough of it. She was also such a strong character, epigrammatic, her words were sharp: a truly inspirational female. If you’re into poetry you should definitely check her out!

Making The Most Of Blogging


Starting a fashion-related blog at this point in time is either an act of  great audacity or an act of atrocious stupidity. There are so many beautiful-talented-interesting (just to name a few attributes) girls (and boys) with the determination and the heart to create really amazing blogs, so why bother?

Quite honestly this does not deflect me at all.  May be due in part to the fact that I’m powered by thrill© (hehe) but it’s surely because I created this blog for admittedly escapist reasons: I desperately needed a creative outlet…and I’m having so much fun doing it!

Though I’ve barely any kind of external reward and I feed off intrinsic motivation and I do not know where this is going to take me or even if it’ll ever take me somewhere.
Is  having a blog harder than I thought at the outset? It certainly is.
But what I’ve learned through this 2 months old blog is kinda amazing and I am eager to learn more and more!
One of the things I’m loving the most, and this I must share, are the photographic experiences and the places where I end up going with the perfect excuse: I’m taking pictures for the blog. I no longer promenade, I accomplish necessary tasks. Aha!
For that reason, and if there’s anybody out there, stay on the femmes side for I’m coming to stay!

Music to lighten up even the darkest of days!


For all who are going through a tough phase you might want to check this little list of “cheer up” songs.

I searched for these songs in itunes to pass them to my brother who was in a “bad hair” day (who hasn’t been there before, really?) for him to hear while driving. Overprotective older sister alert!

There are two allusions to music from Disney films because my brother and I used to watch Disney films all the time when we were little, and I mean ALL the time. A countless number of films (and maybe some brain damage) after that we developed a form of communication based on Disney films quotes! Aha, so Stupid, Silly and Sweet. :)

I remember hating him so much when he was born and I first met him at the hospital. After all, that was the child who came to steal my mighty reign of an only child! I made a scene in the hospital, worthy of a veteran drama queen. There are certain things that are born with us, hey? :P

And a week after that I was already loving him madly and could not imagine life without him.

I freakin’ love you “little” Mr. Or as we say it in portuguese: Adoro-te, pá!

P.S. My criteria of musics were effectiveness over cheesiness :)

If you know more songs that can lighten up even the darkest of days, please share!

…and I’m back.


As I was flying back to Lisbon I figured that staring into the clouds always makes me remember that the main “Grief” of my childhood was not the discovery that Santa Claus does not exist: it was to discover that the clouds are not made ​​of cotton and therefore we cannot jump on them.

*Sigh* I’m experiencing some mixed feelings: though it’s  good to be back home I could use an extra week (month?) in Paris.

“If you loved me you’d think this was cute”!


If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You by Nick Galifianakis

One of the things I like the most is to lose myself in a bookstore and read aimlessly, choosing something that amuse or excites me, on impulse. In my last foray  I found a very funny book that made me laugh at the first page turn.
The book is written and illustrated by Nick Galifianakis (yup, he’s Zach Galifianakis’s cousin) and the book is called “If You Loved Me, You’d Think This Was Cute” and has among other gems this one I chose to  share here with you. The subtitle is equally brilliant “Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You” and the book is full of inconvenient truths or at least “uncomfortable” common situations.

Nick Galifianakis Book Quote: You're such a great friend - it's going to be tougher than usual, dropping you when i finally find a boyfriend.

This particular cartoon is a classic of female “friendships”. Who has never had a most devoted friend and then realized that was only because … she had not yet found a “significant other”?

I’m not the hold grudges type but I strongly agree with Kant when he wrote “friendship is like coffee, never once cool back the original flavor, even hot.”

Go Nick, keep hitting the sensitive spot!

(You can find this book at a better price than I did on Amazon)
