About Goodbyes and Restarts

There are three moments in my life I’ll never forget: 1) when I went hang gliding 2) when I left Brazil and all I knew and boarded on a plane to NYC barely knowing any English 3) when Chris and I boarded on another plane and left NYC to come to California. What do those three experiences have in common? You might be asking yourself. All three of them give you that feeling like someone just pulled the ground from beneath your feet. If that wasn’t enough adventure for the last 6 years of my young life, we decided to do it again.

I started this blog less than a year ago with the intention to share with the world (or whoever was listening) my passion for fashion and things like traveling, food and self care.

Thrift Thursday with Salvation Army

Being a fashion blogger on a budget is not an easy task, especially if you don’t have extra cash to burn shopping (a.k.a ME). It’s a constant work trying to keep your page up to date with the latest trends and seasons, and most people people have no idea how fast those things can add up. One of my personal favorite ways of snagging really unique pieces without going broke is by shopping at thrift stores.

I Tried Teeth Whitening At Home And I’m Ready To Talk About It.

Who doesn’t love to have a bright white smile? I sure do, but after spending a good 5+ years wearing braces, I was left with teeth that were anything but white. That’s something that has always bothered me, because as much as I wanted to get my teeth whitened by a dentist, I just couldn’t afford it.

Self-Care Fridays

As much as I hate to admit it, this year has been so busy that I’ve been having a hard time keeping up with all of my tasks and events. Between my full time 24/7 social media job, the blog, trying to lose weight and wedding planning and just life in general, sometimes I feel like I’m just going to explode. Those are all great problems to have, but they still take a toll on me, physically and emotionally.

Galentine's Day Blogger Brunch

I’ve always had that event planning vein flowing in my body, ever since I was little.

Secret Santa Gift Guide: $20 and Under

One of the best parts of the Holiday Season is having Secret Santas pretty much every week. I mentioned here the other day how much I love to gift people, so shopping for Secret Santa is always a lot of fun. The tricky thing about this kind of gift exchange is that often times people don’t necessarily know much about each other’s personalities, thus they don’t know what to get.

Why I Changed My Skin Care Routine

I’ve never been the kind of person who cared about skin care that much. That’s partially due to the fact that I’ve had pretty good skin for most of my life (thanks for the good genes, mom!), and partially because I’m a naturally lazy person. All of that changed once I turned 25 - you guys, it’s been less than 3 months - and mother nature decided it was about time for me to start having skin problems.
