Christmas Wrap (Dress)

[EM PORTUGUÊS]

In my quest towards perfecting my personal style I’ve come to realise that the only way to truly evolve is by going out of your comfort zone.

My University Graduation

[EM PORTUGUÊS]

My university graduation was this time last year. It should have taken me six semesters to finish my course, but I ended up needing ten.

Whenever I needed a little pick-me-up, felt happy and wanted to celebrate, or just wanted to feel pretty, I’d wear my “pony dress”. If you walked past the store I used to work at on a day when I had it on, I’m sure you’d spot me mindlessly petting the fluffy horses.

Be Kind To Yourself

[EM PORTUGUÊS]

The internet is so full of motivational quotes that by now most of us are immune to them. Every now and then, however, we come across one that jumps off the screen to come live inside of us. That’s what happened to me this week. Routinely scrolling through my Instagram feed, I found this quote:
