In The Mood For


{putting on my high heels as a tibute to International Women's Day}

{usar saltos altos como tributo ao Dia Internacional Das Mulheres}



This week was full of events - some good and others more unpleasant - I guess that's why this is called life, because it does not always go as we'd want! But as it will not help at all whining, let me focus on the good things. while tidying things at home I came across an old noteboke signalled with a particular date and I was very pleased to realize that it has been already seven years since I quited smoking once and for all. As it was International Women's Day I had increased attention with details, accessories, make up and hairstyle all week, as well as assumed a productive and emphatic atittude, multiplying many tasks, characteristic of all women. I participated in a theatre play at school where we did the counterpoint between what was expected from women in the 50´s and nowadays and we dressed up accordingly - it was so much fun! I also had a party just for women to which I contributed with a new cake recipe, finally acquired the new kitchen's stylish metal extractor fan and acquired some new nail polishes that were added to my huge collection that I'll have to show you some day. I'm in the mood for...


{trying this red velvet cupcakes recipe}

{experimentar esta receita de cupcakes de massa vermelha}



{getting a bunch of dark red and white peonies for my bedrooom's vase}

{expencontrar um ramo de peónias vermelhas escuras e brancas para a jarra do meu quarto}


{doing a fishtail braid - although my hair isn't this gorgeous!}

{fazer uma trança espinha de peixe - embora o meu cabelo não seja tão lindo!}





{ordering this coffee table books' collection through Amazon.com}

{encomendar esta coleção de livros coffee table através da Amazon.com}


 

{organizing my statement  necklaces' collection that'll be very useful this Spring}

{organizar a minha colecção de colares vistosos que vão ser muito úteis nesta estação primaveril}





{adding these terribly expensive but amazing vases by Vista Alegra to my upcoming birthday's list}


{colocar estas jarras terrivelmente caras, mas fantásticas da Vista Alegre na minha lista do meu aniversário que se avizinha}

  2. Whoa, cool first photo of the moving heel! xD Haha, at first I was like, do I need more sleep, or is that moving?
    And ah yes, I wish I could do a fishtail braid like that...my hair is layered, so its all but impossible to make it look pretty.
    Great post! :)

  3. That statement necklace on Olivia is amazing! I'm not much of a fan of her but I love the stuff she wears!

    I really like the braid and those flowers, both are very pretty!

  6. What great goodies! How did your red velvet cupcakes turn out? Which recipe did you use? Sorting out and reorganizing my wardrobe is something I desperately need to do! Happy International Women's Day Aida!

  24. Bem... Vamos ver por onde hei-de começar... Quero agradecer-te IMENSO pelo teu comentário tão bom sobre o meu blog! É daquelas coisas que nos dizem e que nos fazem ficar tão alegres e gratas pelo trabalho que temos todos os dias a postar aqui! É com imensa dedicação que faço tudo o que ponho no blog! Quanto ao teu, adorei-o! Nunca o tinha visto por acaso, mas adoro-o! Já percebi que tens praticamente os mesmos gostos que eu, logo neste post, e quando desci, e vi aquela receita do bolo, fiquei encantadissima. Eu adoro cozinhar! Adoro! Cozinhar, é o meu yoga, é aquilo que mais me acalma a par de ir à praia e sentar-me a ver o mar. O teu blog é simplesmente delicioso, gosto muito do que já li que escreves, porque como já disse, identifico-me imenso contigo, e - pelo menos no meu caso - não é todos os dias que se encontra alguém com quem nos identificamos tão bem e logo tão rápido! Vou seguir jajá o teu blog, e claro, também vou ficar de olho nele!!!
    Beijinhos! :D

  25. Gostei muito das tuas dicas, o Dia da Mulher e todos os dias, mas e bom ter um dia Internacional so para nos!!!!
