Where my money is going??


Someday occurred to me we were spending a lot, not following the budget plan, and I couldn’t see the reason. I talked to my husband and we checked our credit card bills, our accounts and other normal bills, then we found out we were spending like 40% of our money with food!

I don’t have much time to cook, so we used to go out a lot to eat and we always went to our favorite restaurants as a common routine. I was shocked when I did the math. We could buy a new car if we just stop going out to have lunch and dinner everyday and start to prepare our food. At the same time, I realized we could eat healthier if we changed our behavior.

So, if you think you never have money enough to take the next step (like moving to a bigger place or opening your own business), look closely to yours expenses and maybe you’ll find that you spend a lot with something you can easily substitute or cut it.

10 things to love this Friday!

Weekend!! I'm so happy I'll have a quality time to spend with my hubby and wake up by my own! Here goes the things I'm thinking a lot these days.

1- A sunny day

It has been raining here in my town for like 5 days. Today, I woke up with a beautiful sunny day and it’s chilling a little bit. Now I ask you, could the weekend start better? I want to do some activities outside!

2- Your body


We’re getting closer to summer time (in Brazil), so people start to get crazy with their diets and exercises routine, because they want a perfect body the beach season starts. Then eat food becomes suddenly wrong. How can it be?! You can not eat what makes happy?! I hate this feeling. We need to accept ourselves and be happy, because nobody has the perfect body, after all!

3- Your health

At the same time, I think all of us must embrace a good health care behavior. Eat what makes us happy doesn’t mean to exaggerate. Not get crazy about exercises, doesn’t mean not care about doing it. Love yourself, do your best to feel good, but never, ever compare yourself or get disappointed with your achievements. I know you’re beautiful!

4- This post about make up mistakes

 I loved this post Akane made about all the crazy things we can do with our make up. Lovely and funny!

5- Halloween costumes, for dogs!

 I always fell almost obligated to laugh of those dogs all dressed up. But my guess is they don’t think it is as funny as I do! Gala agreed they’re funny!

6- Necklace DIY

Kaylah, from The Dainty Squid, made a tutorial of how to create a beautiful necklace. It’s so pretty and I think we can easily make different versions, customize a fancy new jewelry!

7- The New Girl 

I love Zooey Deschanel! She is lovely, funny and authentic. This new series, New Girl, carry all of theses characteristics mixed with charm! It’s one of my new favorities!

8- Nutella’s Milk Shake 

The weekend is going to be hot, we deserve something sweet, fresh and amazing, don’t we?

9- Luis XV Chair

It’s fancy, pretty, lovely, colorful, comfortable and I want to have one so much! I hope I find the perfect one and the home space I need to put a beautiful peace like this in my own place.

10- Shorts! 

As I said, is very hot. A pair of shorts goes very well during the day. And they so nice and spontaneous! Love it.

I heart tattoos!

I love tattoos of all styles and in all parts of the body. When performed by a good artist, I think it is hard not to like them. But a part of the body they're especially beautiful is the back. It's a huge space to use all the creativity and you can tell a whole story.

I have my back tattoos for quite some time (check out the first picture), but I'm thinking about doing a big drawing, something complete. Here are some images to inspire!

So pretty, isn't it?

Pyjamas outside!

Do you have ever thought abou get off the bed all ready to go out? It seems that now you don't have to think much about your daily outfit because pyjamas have become the new trend!

Specially the soft pants, with cute prints and very comfortable fabrics. They're on the runways and streets dressing the modern girls.

Halloween is coming and I think a good inspiration is the beautiful art make up from “Dia de los Muertos”. Here comes some beautiful pictures and a lovely tutorial from a girl I love, named Cira Las Vegas, who has a sweet voice (check out her music videos too!).

Different diet!


Have you ever tried a different diet just to know how you feel? I decided to stay 60 days without any kind of meat. I was educated to eat so much meat, you wouldn't believe it. The good food is a tradition in my family. The meals are almost a ritual of intimacy and pleasure.

These first days I feel a lack of creativity of what I can eat. It has been generally cheese, eggs and soy meat. I observed I increased significantly my consumption of sugar, what is not good, because I want to feel healthier changing my diet.

I'm searching for new veggie recipes, so, if you know some or a good website where I can find it, let me know!

XO and good week!

The new idea of digital cameras

You know I almost never share videos here and two posts in a row it's even less common, but I can't avoid it! I just watched this amazing video about the future of digital cameras. It's a concept video, but it is jus fantastic!
Have a great weekend!!

Steve Jobs, my personal tribute

I found out that Steve Jobs passed away yesterday, during my photography class, by an Iphone. It made me feel sad. Not because I'm crazy about Apple products and inovations. I do have an Ipod and an Ipad, but i'ts not about the things he created. It's about his ideas and concepts. It's about his courage and all he had conquered just because he never gave up. And it's because I admire him this much, I decided to do this very tiny tribute.

Well, if you never saw the video of his speach to the students of Standford University, please watch it. It may touch your life more then all the technoly he developed. (P.S.: The subtitles are in portuguese because is the brazilian version:)

To love photography!

Photography began as a record of images. It is a combination of light exposure and fixation of these images in a sensitive material. Then came digital photography, the blessing of bloggers and the big break with the paradigms of development process and the choice of film that meant so much in the final result of the images.

Some artists are able to merge the good use of different techniques to create beautiful memories, and unexpected deep works . This is what Cris Bierrenbach does. The brasilian photographer, rooted in
photojournalism, and has been awarded in several instances of art and photography.


Exploring contemporary and unusual techniques, such as daguerreotype, his work has gained prominence and importance in photographic universe.
