Hi there!

Image
Hello everyone! I know I've been away for a few days now, but I have a pretty good reason! I was away, in a little village without any reception, so phone and internet were not an option!

The weather was terrible, so there aren't any decent pictures. I can show you my most recent manicure, how about that?



Not that impressive, but I still think it looks nice! With KIKO's #264 and #389.
I hope you all had a great holiday and recharged your batteries for the week that's starting.
I saw "Brave" yesterday... I absolutely loved it and the end with a Mumford and Sons' music was soooooo amazing!

Have a great week, dearies!
XOXO,

I need ideas...

Image
Something has been in my mind for a while: I need to organize my makeup drawer. Some baskets or dividers would be great to avoid things getting all mixed up (that really bugs me!!). Here's my drawer now, with everything in order:


(I must say those are not all of the nail lacquers I have, but who cares? ahah )

I googled some images for inspiration. Here are the ones I considered to be a good solution:






As you might have noticed, my drawer has no brushes. That's because I keep them in a cup, along with the eye pencils. But the rest is kept in a drawer and caos settles down after opening the drawer two or three times. Which one do you like best? How do you organize your make up?
XOXO,
M


P.S: The first image was taken by me. The remaining ones were taken from Google under the search "makeup drawer dividers".

Apparently, it's Keira Knightley's birthday and Vogue Portugal always does a "Style Evolution" for a celebrity on their birthday. And I came across this picture. It made my jaw drop.


How great does she look in this picture? She's so greek goddess-like here... Aww, I wish I could look this awesome!

Here's the link so you can see the whole evolution:

Also, seeing her pictures made me miss my fringe...should I wear a fringe again?

XOXO,

Well my dears, the weather has been horrible over here. Wind and rain are here and they're staying for a while. And I've decided to put some colour into my outfits. Today it was pink.

The set of nail lacquers for my current manicure :) all from KIKO MAKE UP.


And the great make up I'm wearing. Both from LUSH. I was a fan of SEPHORA's eyeliner but now that I've tried this one, Independent, I don't want another! And the lipstick is just adorable ^^

And this is it for today! I hope you all like it :)

Well, I'm back! After a kickass friday night, yesterday was time for the Mumford & Sons' concert in Lisbon. There are very few words to describe the experience and I can't wait for the next concert!

I just want to show you one of the pictures and as soon as I have the time to sort them out, I'll post some more :)


This was at the end of the concert, as they were singing "I Will Wait".

I hope your weekend is being awesome and great. Rock on!!!
XOXO,

In case no one noticed...IT'S FRIDAY! The weekend begins :)

As I already said, tomorrow I'm going to Mumford & Sons' concert tomorrow. I have to take a look at what am I going to wear tomorrow. Comfort is key and I am counting on dancing and singing a lot! :)

But today is friday and I'm going out. And what better to wear than a LBD?
How about you? Any plans for tonight or the weekend?

Ah Tuesday...one of the worst days of the week, there are still so many days until Friday and the glorious weekend... and this week, I can't wait for Saturday to come! But I'll get to it  later!

Yesterday I said I had some surprises. Over here, today's Father's Day and I went shopping for a gift for my Daddy. I decided to make it fun this year and so I went to LUSH and bought my Daddy the following:




Pretty nice, huh? This way my Daddy can have a silky smooth skin and can give him lots of kisses! :) Happy Father's Day, Daddy!
Luckily for me, the LOVELY ladies at the shop thought I deserved a little pampering myself and gave me some free samples.





Honey I washed the Kids Soap,
Mask of Magnaminty,
Fair Trade Honey Shampoo.

So far, nothing but good things. The smell of the shampoo is so real, the colour and texture feels just like honey and my hair looks great. The soap looks like a bit of pudding and smells like pudding. But it's pretty solid, no worries there. I can'…

It's been a very quiet weekend and so I decided to put together a set of things I'd like to have. I believe some of them will come easier than others, but I have to keep the dream alive! I hope everyone has a restful weekend!
