life in blue - part 1

This year’s wedding season is almost here so I decided to explore mama’s closet again and I found this beautiful treasure: a 30 year old lace dress so delicate and so romantic! It was love at first sight!

However, before I can wear it, I need to dye it first (time has taken its toll...). Any suggestions of a good place to dye the dress in Lisboa?

10 things I love

cátia challenged me and I just couldn’t resist. so here are 10 things I love (in no particular order):

1. the first one is really really obvious: clutches!
the white one is brand new. wait. no. it’s not new… or is it? I bought it yesterday at a vintage shop…. but it’s never been used before! so I love my white-new-vintage clutch!

 2. maki-sushi.
yummy! I could live on a maki-sushi diet for life!

3. nail polish.
 I want candy

4. shoes! shoes! shoes!  
shoes everywhere. shoes in the subway!

5. weekend breakfasts.
with all the time in the world to spare…

6. books & reading.
I've got a crush on jane austen. you’ve got an hopeless romantic here!

7. music.
everywhere. always.

8. santa claus 
though I really don’t like christmas I’ve got a soft spot for the sweet old man (yes he does exist! go saint nick!) and here you have a little glimpse of my huge collection of santas.

9. travel. 
 I do love to travel but I love to come home to Lisboa.

10. family & friends.

I’m not going to challenge anyone in particular. I’ll just invite you all to share with us 10 things you love!

just another manic monday...

with a lousy humor after such a very nice weekend!

baked my first ever cake

next stop: the book fair. I brought home with me some cool mystery books along with books about history, cinema and music.

then a night out with mates and dates and friends

and finally went on a trip down memory lane and found some old bracelets that will sure be my new (old) best friends... some of them are so cool! I can't believe I had forgotten all about them...
