In The Mood For



{getting to sleep as many hours as I can - never going to catch up!}


The events of recent weeks have led me to reflect on what is really important in life and, undoubtedly, the health of those who are dear to me is in the first podium places. The good weather also eventually brings good mood when things are not as easy as it gives me strength of soul and good will to get out of bed early in he morning to put in order what is pending and to get it done as soon as possible. Another thing I love is making the bed with freshly washed sheets, making flower arrangements for the weekend, extending scented laundry in the sun, watching movies and series marathons  and cooking tidbits to friends. After all, we need so little to be happy and I have been living by the most futile demands! I'm in the mood for...


Os eventos das últimas semanas têm-me levado a refletir sobre o que é realmente importante na vida e, indubitavelmente, a saúde daqueles que me são queridos está nos primeiros lugares do pódio. O bom tempo também acaba por trazer boa disposição quando as coisas não estão tão fáceis, pois dá-me força anímica e vontade de me erguer cedo da cama para pôr em ordem o que está pendente e despachar tudo o mais rapidamente possível. Outra coisa que eu adoro é fazer a cama de lavado, com lençóis fresquinhos, fazer arranjos florais ao fim de semana, estender roupa perfumada ao sol, ver filmes e fazer maratonas de séries  e cozinhar petiscos para os amigos. Afinal de contas, precisamos de tão pouco para sermos felizes e eu tenho andado com tão fúteis exigências! Apetece-me...


{trying this fun melon/ golden manicure}





{adding this kind of embroideries to some old jackets to pop them up a bit}





{cleaning and organizing my massive sunglasses collection}





{searching for a fun, beautiful and polished wall appliance to place between my new kitchen's upper and bottom cupboards}





{finding such a pretty, modern, funky necklace}





{choosing accessories for a friend who has a nearby event but needs a helping hand}

  1. que verdades tão verdadinhas!! a saude tem que estar sempre em primeiro (apesar de nos esquecer-mos de tal) e basta tão pouco para termos um sorriso nos labios, porem complicamos e exigimos demais ;p
    p.s: amei as imagens
