Summer skin care.


Source: We heart it

Skin. First of all, today is the day for a new label on the blog. That's right, I'll start posting about beauty, specifically my beauty routines, my favorite products, new products that promise wonders, some review's if you want, but mostly some tricks and skin care that I acquired over time with different experiences. I warn you that everything I´ll talk here works with my skin but it may not work so well with yours. So try different products until you find the perfect balance for your skin!
So with that said, I find appropriate for summer and for my very first beauty post, a little talk about my skin care routine for a day on the beach. Starting with my skin type: besides having the misfortune to have an extremely dry skin, I also have a sensitive one (genetics, thank you). So the ideal for me is to moisturize and protect the most. So, what I do before leaving the house to go to the beach is first applying a moisturizer all over my body. I'm currently using (and abusing) the "Purely Pampering" with coconut milk and jasmine petals for dry skin from Dove. I bought this product on sale at a drugstore and since then I haven´t used anything else, besides moisturize my skin quite well, also leaves a pleasant scent. Makes you want to lick all your skin (ok, joking!). After leaving it dry (and act), the essential step: sunscreen. After several failed attempts, I finally found one suitable for my skin (Yei me!), the "Sun Protection SPF 50+" for sensitive skin from Farline. Since I started using this sunscreen I never suffered from sunburns anymore (I also have a very light skin) and also helped with moisturizing my skin. Two words to describe it: LOVE IT! To replace my usual facial cream (which I'll talk on another post) I use "Hydrance Optimale Light Protective Hydrating Cream SPF 20" for sensitive skin from Avène. Of course that is not enough so I apply a light layer of my Farline sunscreen too. And I'm ready for a day on the sun with my protected skin! The best advices I can give you are finding out your skin type and suit the different products. Don´t purchase those that claim to be right for all skin types. Your skin is unique and deserve good care, never forget that.

This week mood: sunglasses.


Statement. I am one of those bloggers who think that a good pair of sunglasses makes all the difference on a look. It is a totally V.I.A (Very Important Accessory) that can make (almost) any outfit into something cool. I am also one of those who wears them all year regardless the weather. I admit that I can´t leave the house without my sunglasses, I can even dare to say that I feel naked without them!

This week mood: kimono.


Summer. Right now, I just want to wear kimonos. Basically, this summer, I intend to wear them with everything and for every occasion. Nothing delights me more lately than a kimono with a good cut and a fun pattern (although already have in my possession a classic black, of course). With this heat, I leave you with some inspiration for summer days and nights.

This week mood: Badass.


(EN) Tougher. And finally back. The last few weeks were completely chaotic, ok, I'm exaggerating a bit but they have been harsh. As I already told you, I started my nursing internship away from home.  The stress of finding a house. Then I found one. But I had to move. And with the move the internship began. It was hard (I still have nightmares). Then began another one in a different city. Another moving, yei (not). The 2nd internship began. Less stress and more free time. And voila, here I am, full of energy to bring back to life this space that gives me so much joy!
Without further delay, let's get to what brought me here today. I'll tell you about attitude. Yes, attitude! Fashion is about the attitude that we can transmit through our clothes, don´t you think? To survive these last few weeks of hell I had be tougher and that was reflected on my outfits. A lot of black, leather jackets, dark lipstick, grunge boots (I think you already get it). So, I leave you with some inspiration for when you want to kick some ass!

Happy.


Different. I told you I was trying to use a little more color and be bolder. And as I keep my promises, here it is. It´s something completely different from what I usually wear but let me say one thing: I felt great out of my comfort zone. So today I leave you with some advice that worked with me: get out of your comfort zone from time to time, try new trends, something that normally you wouldn´t wear. You´ll be surprise with the results, you´ll see.
Well, I´m giving a new opportunity to my heels. So far the relationship is going well.

This week mood: color.


New. I´ve decided to give an opportunity to colors. Yes, colors. But slowly, a colorful accessory here, a colorful top there. Nothing too fancy, because black is, and always will be, my "color". And to celebrate new beginnings, today I launch a new layout, more minimalist and mostly more me. Hope you like it, because I love it!

Birkenstocks on my feet.


To trend or not to trend. Truth to be told, when I began to see that the historical Birkenstock had come to stay, I was reluctant. If there were shoes that I hated were these ones. But as time went by and they started to appear in runways with alternative models, I give up on hating them. Fashion exists for having fun (or so I think), to take risks and reinvent our personal style. Said that, I am completely surrendered to Birkenstock and I'm already thinking of buying more models for the summer.
