Life Motto: Dorky and Weird Is The Way To Go

Hey guys!

Dorky and weird. That's my life motto. 

That's the only way I know how to have fun. Being dorky and weird. I feel like if you show your dorky and weird side, gurl/bro you made it!!

(this was in Albufeira. I made a new friend I guess)

You may be starting a new chapter in your life. Starting a new school year, going to university, heading to a new job etc, and showing people your best side, is the absolute best (to you and everyone else).

Telling a Story: Unwanted Cats No More

Hey guys!

I don't really know about other places but normally here in Portugal, summer is a great month for people but not so much for pets. The hotter months are somehow the months where thousands of animals are left on the streets.


Maybe it's leaving their homes and going on vacations somewhere... Here I am trying to understand what goes on inside these people's minds, when there is just no possible explanation.

The abandonment of animals is NOT ok.

I have a strong opinion that if you decide to take in an animal to your home, you have the responsibility to it for the rest of its life. These animals did not choose to be a part of your life. Someone else did for them.

Those wooden boards you see in the picture above you, were in Quarteira (southern Portugal) near a fish market where many stray cats do their best to survive.

The boards. How adorable is that though? So sweet that whoever wrote that, decided to come back 2 years later to tell everyone the story. And now, so am I. Or at least trying to.

There are soo many kennels and associations (but yet always packed) that need our help. These are are normally unfunded and the adoption of these adorable animals brings benefits for everyone not just them! :)

One of many examples where you can go get yourself a friend and family member for life is;

Do you have any pets? Any rescue?

I'm Single, So What?

Hey guys!

Today, I thought I’d share with you a different type of post, not a beauty nor fashion post, but a more personal one.



This year has definitely been the best year of my life, but I still had some tough moments for sure. Being in a new city with new people and far from your family made me anxious and alone at times.

Honestly, I’ve never been that girl that NEEDED a boyfriend. I’m more into letting destiny taking its course.

All my girlfriends had boyfriends and I was one of the few single ones… This never really bothered me. I always felt like I didn’t have to settle with someone just in the sakes of having a boyfriend. Not my scene. But a few months before summer I sometimes felt a little left out… Is that strange? Don’t get me wrong, I’m super happy for my friends and their relationships, but I sometimes wished I had someone too.

Can't Go Wrong Smokey Eye

Hey guys!

So, as I said on my previous post, my summer days are always on the run. It’s that time of year where I’m super free, but I somehow manage to being late to everything… oops haha

Therefor, I thought I’d share the fastest Summer-night Makeup!!

To be honest, after a long day at the beach, when I start getting ready to go out, I sometimes don’t have the patience to do this huge elaborate makeup... But I still wanna look put together you know?

The stars of this look are a SPARKLY eyeshadow (who doesn't need some sparkle in their lives?) and BIG LASHES!

It’s smokey and effortless without having actually put a lot of effort into it hahaha


Here's a tutorial on this look :)

Lazy Summer Outfit

Hey guys!
The other day, I was going through some blogs and came across these amazing outfit posts. But I had one issue with them... There seemed to be a lot of thought and effort put into them haha

I don't know about you, but during summer I get more and more lazy with my everyday outfits... with matching things to other things and accessorizing the shit out of a simple look :p

A summer day in the life of yours truly consists on going to the beach/pool and hanging out with friends and family so there is no effort in my choice of outfits haha

Butttt, on the contrary of what I thought, the other day I went to meet a friend and he said my outfit was cute and I was like "oh this old rag, I just pulled it out of my closet". I was being 100% honest and yes I made sure I told him I had put 0 effort in looking decent hehehe So I considered that to be a MASSIVE win!! Definitely made my day haha

Here are some pics of my outfit today :)
I went to the pool, then Macdonalds and then the bank... nothing too major.

I decided to pair my denim shorts with a black kind of cropped shirt and my flipflops. Obviously nothing too fussy hehe :p

(that hair flip)

Born Lippy - Stick Lip Balm a.k.a. Best Lip Balm for Summer

Hey guys!

Like many humans on this planet, I have chapped lips. Not only during winter, but also during summer, spring and autumn. Who am I kidding? I can have chapped lips any time…

I needed a new lip balm a few months ago so I went to The Body Shop to get one of their lip balms in that little pot-thingy-majig. But then I started thinking about how I would have to put my fingers in it… ok I did not mean for that to sound dirty. Oops

I saw this Born Lippy – Stick Lip Balm in Pomegranate (4.50 euros) and fell in love with the packaging. Yes, I’ll admit that the packaging caught my eye and was the reason I bought it. hehe

So what are my thoughts about it?
