Eight dresses for Xmas!

I always use dresses at Christmas. It feels so comfortable and elegant. Where I live, is always raining during december, so the perfect combo is dress with boots or a not so open shoes.

These are some outfits that inspired me this year!

I heart tattoos!

Today (well, is late night now), I'm inspired by Matrioskas or Matrioshkas (I see both ways often and really don't know wich one is correct). It's a beautiful russian tradition that made so many people fall in love, including myself.

The first one is from Daniele, Sometimes Sweet. I love this tattoo of her, and she features a serie called "Tattoo Tuesday" that completed its 100th anniversary. In this post, Daniele shows all her pretty tattoos. So, if you love tattoos to, go se check her blog!

This other two I took from a friend Facebook page. Manu has so many beautiful artworks!

Top 10: Photography Love


1- Canon Equipment

I use Canon to photograph for 5 years now and I Love my equipment. I tried Nikon a little bit and I know it’s an excellent brand as well, but I got used to the simplicity of Canon commands and is cheaper then Nikon. (I recommend Amazon to look at prices)

2- Lomography: La Sardina
 The Idea of get back to basics and accept the distortions as a form of art is why I’m dying to try a Lomo, like La Sardina ( pretty 35mm) . And the price is quite accessible. Here’s where you can get one!

3- Ona Camera Bags & Jo Totes

Ona Camera and Jo Totes are lovely and famine brands of bags for cameras. Because, sometimes we just don’t want to go out carrying an ugly backpack. (You can check it here and here).

4- Scrapbook

It’s one of the prettiest ways of take a good care of your pictures.  I put some hours looking for supplies at often. I really don’t know if there is another good site to buy supplies on the internet. The project above is from Tara Anderson, one of my favorite artists! She’s so inspiring!

5- Old School Polaroids

Most of photography lovers who lived the 80’s have a especial crush for the Polaroid One Step. After “The Impossible Project”, the flame became a fire! They really adorable!

6- Lightroom

I love this Adobe software. You can work with the light, brightness and contrast in a artistic and different way from Photoshop or Fireworks. Lightroom is great to organize your albums as well! More about it here.

7- Flickr

Flickr is the bigger photos repository of the web. Is easy to use, for free, and full of pretty pictures!

8- Family Albums

I adore family albums. Is a tradition I think everybody should adopt, even if your family is you and your puppy! I take so many pictures of my lovely ones, but never print it. Is one of my new years eve projects! If you think you lose the perfect moments because you’re without your camera, you can do like Elsie, from A Beautiful Mess. She did this album using cell phone pictures (hello instagram addicteds)!

9- New School Polaroids (PoGo)

If you’re high tech or have no talent to search for supplies to your analogical Polaroid, you can try this instant mobile printer and do a lovely family album!

 10- “The Art of Photography: An Approach to Personal Expression”

It’s the new version of the classical The Art of Photography (originally published in 1994). It’s a valuable collection of tips and “how to” techniques, useful for all kinds of photographers. The author is Bruce Barnbaum and the book is available on Amazon!

Music as a gift

Of all the possible christmas gifts I have in mind, there's one that beats all the others: Music!

If  I could, I'd write a beautiful song, the kind that makes you feel better, happier, and give to my loved ones. Not a christmas song, actually, just a lovely melody with sicere words.

The truth is I have no talent to do something like this, and I think nobody likes to receive cds anymore, so the only way I found to give them music is these pretty headphones:

They're delicious!
1 to 4, you can find here.
5 to 8, you can find here.
And 9th here!

Christmas Make Up


Christmas is getting closer and closer. I have no doubt this is the busy time of the year. I’ll have lots of parties (in the office, between friends, husband b’day), and I think most of us have pretty much the same appointments.

Chanel had this great idea to make all practical with the make up to match our festive outfits and to get into the mood of Christmas. It’s a combo of red and gold products that I felt in love with. I think is fancy and we can use it all the time.

The only sad thing about it, was I forgot to take pictures of parents with my own camara. There were so many camaras there,I think I made some mistake about.

To have a better day


* If I don't love it, I don't buy it or let ir standing on my work table.

* If it doens't fit me well, I don't use it.

* If something is with some problem and need to be fixed, I fix!

* If I'm worried with something I need to do and can't forget, I do it fast, so I don't forget!

Do one thing at time helps not to get wrong.

If I have some time left in my day, I organize the stuff I've been avoiding to even look at it.

Always say "hello" to my family and friends, no matter how crazy my day is.

And you? Do you do reminders to have a better day?

A peek at my little store things...

I'm at home, deciding to go out or spend the sunday night preparing for the work monday and decided to organize some of the new products I got this week for the little store. I'm very excited about completing this project, because it's something I've been thinking about for two years now. I'm very glad and would like to show you a little bit of the new things I received!

Wish list of my silly desires


I missed this blog a lot! My dad was on the hospital for a week and, when he got released my grandmother got injured and had to be hospitalized. She’s there for three days now. I’m trying to be supportive and help them as much as I can. My lovely husband has been a great helper too, what is so considering of him!

But, things are settling down now, and I feel I can try to go back to normal life. I want to prepare home for Christmas. I must confess, starting to look for perfect gifts make me want so many things!

This is a little wish list of my silly desires lately:

1- Pink Diana Camara
I'm just curious about this lomo happiness.

 2- A beautiful chair
In fact, I just need a good place to read, but if it can be comfy and pretty, why not?

3- A vintage necklace selection
Because I'm looking for lovely things to my little store

4- Back tattoos
Need time and money to do it! =/

5- Home Ec e-course
I just would love to learn sewing. If you too, click here.

6- Pretty fabrics
To use after a learn to sew

7- A charming purse to work
Mine aint good anymore, but after an year, it's not a surprise.

8- To travel
I love it! I'll never get tired of this

This totally random selection, but I loved doing it! And you? Are you getting ready to Christmas?
