When the sun goes down

Image
This was the unsaid deadline. My boyfriend worked until 3pm today and we decided to hit the beach afterward. I'm more a morning-beach-person, but the afternoon was just perfect. We managed to arrive a little before 5pm and we left right after sunset. Plus, I wore my new bikini!

Bikini: OYSHO
Maybe tomorrow I'll take more pictures of the bikini :)
XOXO,

Oh them maxis

Image
My love for maxi skirts started last summer, when I bought my mint maxi skirt from ZARA. It has two openings on the sides, the fabric is light and fluid and the colour... Well, it's mint and I love it! Also, I was thrilled when I found out they redid the skirts for the F/W collection and bought myself a burgundy one!

Two weeks away

Image
That's right! That time of the year when I feel like five again is here. My birthday is in two weeks and I'm feeling pretty excited! Not only because it'll be my birthday but also because the next day I leave for the Paredes de Coura music festival!! 
One thing I really like about my birthday is making a wishlist of things I need/want and hoping to get the things as presents or buying them as treat myself! So here it is, my LUSH wishlist for my birthday!


I have tried all of these products and I can tell you just how amazing they are! The wonders they did to my skin are unbelievable and I can't wait to get my hands on everyone of them and treat my skin like royalty! As for the body conditioner, you can read the review I made here; it's an excellent product!


Have a great saturday everyone!
XOXO,

Friday in Wonderland

Image
I don't remember how I found out about Poison d'Amour. Maybe in Vogue, maybe on facebook, who knows. Ever since I saw pictures of the place I've been wanting to go there: the decoration is very french, like a scene taken from Marie Antoinette, and the same can be said about the food. From pastries to miniature cakes and of course, the macarrons. Located near the Museum of Natural History and its botanical garden, the pâtisserie has a lovely terrace in the back facing the botanical garden. It's an amazing place to go and relax for a while, since no traffic noises reach the terrace. And the outside decoration? Well, see for yourself :)

I recommend a visit to Poison d'Amour, either with friends or a moment for two, it's very nice. They also serve brunches and I'm considering try…

My reviews: LUSH's Ro's Argan

Image
Well, it's been a while since I did a post about a review. Usually I tend to incorporate my opinions about specific products in a larger post, but not this time.As you might have noticed, I love body and beauty products. I also love to get good products, so if that means I have to pay a little more, I'm fine with that. What matters to me is the results I get.
I'm a recent fan of LUSH. It started off with a gift from my best friend and now it's a place I go to if I need a good and visually beautiful gift. Also, it's a place where I buy some makeup and where I'm always welcome and greeted with a smile. That being said, a while ago, the girls at LUSH gave me a sample of Ro's Argan Body Conditioner and I didn't try it until today. If you are a usual customer at LUSH, you might have seen it on the shelves or even tried it yourself, who knows. I tried it today and was absolutely delighted! I mean it! 

You apply the conditioner to your body as you normally would…

Beautiful Lisbon

Image
Yesterday was a beautiful day and I went to my favourite terrace in Lisbon. The music was good, the food was perfect and the company was the best! If you're ever in Lisbon or you live here and need a nice place to relax and have an iced tea, Clara Clara Café is the place to go! Besides the terrace, there's grass where you can lie down and read a nice book.
