"You saved €503.97"

.... It's always something good to read. The Outnet Clearance is on. I wanted a Hervé Lèger bandage dress but when I got home all of them were sold out. Then I found these sandals from the same designer. They are super high (13,5 cm) and I have some doubts about the design but with 85% discount I decided to give them a try. My brand new teeth breaker sandals:

Bikining II


I'm not on vacation yet... I will in a week! But there's nothing better than to arrive home after work and to have your babies in the pool waiting for you for a swim. And even though my place looks nice to be on vacation I can assure you that I don't pretend to spend a single day here. Bad girls go everywhere, so start giving me some ideas. A bag full of clothes in my car, passport and joy. What else do I need to feel/ be free?

Ziggy Stardust & the twilight dress (and how they lived happily ever after)


It was hot. Very hot... A sun this hot would only be possible in this day alone. We all knew it was going to be a bright day.

I met Mariana many years ago, still at the University, but only a few years back I got to know her at another level. Along with her, came Duarte, who rapidly became a regular presence in my life, and them together, a couple with whom I enjoy being and feel a deep affinity.

Did I get emotional? Yes, I did. How not? The religious ceremony was long, touching... Every single word from the preach, echoed in my ears one hundred times, so spot on they were. The bridegroom's emotion, yet so sure of their decision, withdrew a sigh from every single guest.

A lively wedding, quite unusual as it was so relaxed and outgoing, just like them two. Still, with an exquisite attention to detail, such as Mariana, so singularly beautiful, delicate and feminine, would have wanted it to be in the most beautiful day of her life.

After getting rid of my 15 cm heel shoes, I danced until I ran out of strength and I found so many friends in that space that even though it was not mine, it felt like home. And that alone explains why this wedding was so important for me, because without despising the previous ones, I lived every single moment skin deep, step by step.

The audacity of my choices has revealed itself more classical than initially expected. The Asos BLACK dress, model Sci-Fi hero is unquestionably a unique piece, quite complex to wear. With such dress (and live was considerably more eccentric) I chose black accessories in leather, wavy hair and the hat which seemed perfect for this outfit. The satin shoes were not an easy choice but, as mentioned in the mood board, I had the 60s and 70s in mind. Only such a specific heel will make any sense there. And it did.

All makes sense when the bridegroom's smiles are reflected on their wedding rings. And together with their smiles, the smiles of all those who wish them nothing but the very best and were happy to be part of that moment.

Bikining






Right now I'm obsessed in having one of these floating beds in my house... They are the most confortable I've seen lately in a pool! These photos were taken last Saturday before the wedding I had in the afternoon. Sun, warm water and a delicious lunch in a nice hotel in bikini was all I needed to be ready to my 15 cm heels. Or not! Soon the photos of the party but for now my green/ safari look for a relaxing morning.

All Good Things (come to an end)


One year ago my family became poorer...
I grew up here. This is my grandparents house and these pictures were taken 3 years ago during Christmas. You can see by my face how happy I felt in that place. Always did. This is part of who I really am.






My grandparents don't live there anymore but they are in every beautiful thing we see every single day of our lives.
