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.

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. From planning surprise parties to friends, to my own birthday celebrations, to work launch parties, I’ve always enjoyed putting events together. Then one day I thought to myself, now that I have a blog and have met some amazing people through that network, why not start planning events here too?

2017 in Retrospect (plus New Year’s Resolutions)

2017 hasn’t really been a memorable year for most people. A lot of really bad things happened all around the world, and I feel like a lot of people sort of lost faith in humanity. However, in spite of those bad things, I’ve personally had an amazing year. So many really great/life changing things happened to me, that I thought I should share some of them with you.

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.

DIY Marble Tray

This is my first time writing about DIY projects! Yay! 

I’ve been seeing the marble tray craze everywhere, and always felt like I was missing out for not having one. I’ve exhaustively tried to find one that was both pretty and affordable, but most options out there don’t fit both categories, so I decided to create my own marble tray using basically 3 things: an old wooden tray, spray paint and contact paper.
