In The Mood For

{selecting varied girly hairdos for brighter, sunnier days}

This spring is having a very sad beginning with so much rain and cold, but the truth is that this week of holidays , despite barely having stopped for a minute, is passing off splendly! And what about you? How’s everyone’s Easter preparation coming along? Today I went in automatic mode and now I canonly think of nests cakes, almonds, rice pudding, crème brûlée, Easter cakes ... The ingredients are purchased, the recipes are selected and the only thing lacking is for me to go for it and hope that'll work out well. I alo will give my hair a cut and dye on the way, time and tide wait for no man and  this year I had the appearance of my first gray hairs, and I really feel a huge nostalgia for the  Easter when I was younger, when there was always a new outfit to debut offered with so much love by my mother! And because Easter is a sign of unconditional love, I hope that you'll spend it with those you love the most! I'm in the mood for...

Esta Primavera está a ter um começo bem triste com tanta chuva e frio, mas a verdade é que esta semana de férias, apesar de mal ter parado um minuto, me está a correr às mil maravilhas! E vocês? Como estão os preparativos para a Páscoa? Eu entrei hoje em modo automático e já só penso em ninhos, amêndoas, arroz doce. creme brûlée, folares...Os ingredientes estão comprados, as receitas escolhidas e só falta mesmo meter as mãos obra e torcer para que resultem bem. Ainda vou aproveitar para dar um corte ao cabelo e pintá-lo, que a idade  já não perdoa e este ano nasceram-me as primeiras cãs, e sinto mesmo uma nostalgia enorme pela Páscoa de quando eu era mais nova, quando havia sempre uma roupa nova para estrear oferecida com tanto amor pela minha mãe! E, porque a Páscoa é sinal de amor incondicional, espero que a passem com todos aqueles que mais amam! Apetece-me...

  8. Esta Páscoa a mim está-me a correr lindamente tb, já lixei, limpei e pintei 3 estantes, agora é só esperar que sequem para lhes dar um efeito decapado em branco. Já preparamos tb as paredes do hall para pintar, e isso só no dia de hoje!! Engraçado mencionares as primeiras cãs, eu de repente dei por mim com uns quantos cabelos brancos que não tinha - ou se tinha não os via por andar sempre a pintar, mas como não pinto o cabelo vai para 4 meses, agora vêem-se bem!! - e de cada vez que olho para eles fico sem vontade nenhuma de os cobrir com tinta, fico com vontade de os deixar assim, cinza e branco. Mas como a minha irmã me trouxe de Londres uma tinta strawberry blonde que cá não há, 'bora lá cobrir os cabelinhos brancos de louro morango e ver como é que fica!! Boa Páscoa, minha linda **

  9. LOVE the first GIF with all those cute hair options, I wish I can do my hair in a second like that hahaaa... Happy Easter too! <3 I've just post up my first ever LAYERING post with step-by-step images of provoking layers!
