Spring has officially started here in Brazil and although I’m in a pastel nails kind of mood, matching my wardrobe with the current season feels boring to me. I’m guilty of wearing crazy bold colors during winter (and have been criticized for it!). Maybe I haven’t get used to seasons just yet (we don’t have those in tropical Venezuela) Or maybe I just prefer to pop instead of blend in. (more…)
I’m a bag kind of girl but I’m also a minimalist, like I won’t throw on my bag a sewing kit and a pillow just in case. I take with me the bare essentials: my keys, phone and lipstick —if I can get away with convincing the hubbie to carry them on his backpack even better— so I’m all about mini clutches and purses and you know how much I love typograhic ones.

Some of you will hate me for what I’m about to say, but here it goes: the Naked palettes really never caught my attention! Don’t get me wrong, for all the hype that’s around them, I’m sure they’re some of the best eyeshadows palettes out there, but the color range within one same palette seems very similar to me, there are only a few mattes and some of the shades are repeats from one palette to another.
