Where Memories are Fresh

London, July, 2008

“I like it in the city when the air is so thick and opaque. I love to see everybody in short skirts, shorts and shades”

Nothing really to say about anything. It’s just random cause I feel random. Random pictures for my random mood posted in my equally random blog.

I like July and I miss how the heavy clouds constantly threat us with quick & thick rains during this time.

Goodnight ghost readers and Reuri (:

Brasile

As I was looking for pictures of Trancoso / Bahia, I came across this amazing tutorial which blows me away. I feel such a serenity vibe out of it. I guess it’s not new for anyone that I’m passionate about beach…

Although I think Brazil’s image is usually picture as hot naked women most of the time and we do deal with some sexual tourism issues, I think this editorial is just beautiful as it is. It doesn’t show nudity in a promiscuous way but in an artistic one.

The pictures were taken in Trancoso, Bahia, Brazil, in november 2008, but feature the march issue of Marie Clair Italia in 2009. The photographer was David Bellemere, who never fails to picture artistic nudity beautifully and the models are the gorgeous Tiiu Kuik and Michelle Buswell

I always take so long to post pictures after taking it.

These pictures were taken on September 7th extended holidays.

Everything was partially planned on the last minute but we all had a blast. We rent a house on Maracaipe beach, next to Porto de Galinhas, an hour and half from Recife, for 4 days.

Maracaipe is like a paradise. Surfers, clean water, waves, a few bars and humble houses. It grew out of a fishers village and is basically supported by tourism now a days.

Recently, a huge land was sold to the portuguese group Pestana to build a resort. That will involve the overthrow of many trees (mostly coconut trees) and the government provided the construction of a new road, since it was quite hard to get there by car before. That will increase the cars flow to the beach, which can’t really support that many people. That will result on the mischarachterization of a paradise which I see as a big loss, besides the obvious polution result of an uncontrolled development of a town.  With all the recent discussion about sustainability it’s so disappointing to see our government supporting such a thing.

Blablabla. I get lost so easy on what I’m saying when the TV is on. I need to work on my concentration.

Sometimes I feel like I talk like Simpsons episodes that changes the story completely in the middle of the episode. I can’t stick to a topic! Cacete!!!

Anyways. Pictures taken by my friend Bruno. “Models”: me and Domany.

Pijama/roupa de casa + boas companhias

Maracaípe, Setembro, 2010

Tem coisa melhor do que passar um tempo em casa com uma roupa confortável e alguns bons amigos pra jogar conversa fora e te fazer rir?

Reuni algumas fotos de momentos assim.

Não necessariamente na MINHA casa (com exceção das fotos em Orlando que, por algum tempo, era realmente meu lar). Seja uma casa alugada na praia para o feriadão; ou uma casa de veraneio própria, de parente ou amigos; numa moradia temporaria; casa de amigo; ou, até mesmo, num albergue, porque não?

Confesso que não sou uma pessoa baladeira. Não curto rave e saio pouco para baladas. Preciso de um BOM motivo para me deslocar até a Zona Sul para uma baladinha, devo confessar. Troco inúmeras festas por um fim de semana na praia ou interior.

A vida urbana é uma constante tentativa de driblar situações, principalmente horários de rush no trânsito e sair ao ar livre no sol a pino.

Mas nada que alguns dias longe com os amigos não resolva! É como uma dose de outra  realidade. Quem não gosta diversificar as atividades do cotidiano, não é mesmo?

Sempre morei com meus pais. Tive uma curta experiência de morar por 3 meses com roommates em Orlando, todas brasileiras e nordestinas. A escolha dos apartamentos eram sorteio e eu nunca tinha visto elas na vida (com exceção de Déa) antes de entrar com mala e cuia em casa. Mas nos demos bem de cara e a convivência era tão constante que em poucas semanas eramos como irmãs! De pedir escova de dente emprestada (ein Déa? ;p eew, eu sei, mas sem frescura, né?!) e tudo, vergonha zero dentro de casa. Logicamente não vou entrar em detalhes por motivos óbvios. Enfim. Faz uma falta. Era uma “realidade” boa.

Era tudo tão bom com elas

Bricar com elas (cada momento juntas era motivo para celebrar)

Dormir e acordar com elas

Aproveitar um dia de folga com elas (Roommates 2009/2010)

E para matar a saudades, reencontro com as roommies, Maceió, Junho 2010

Potentially Favourite

Bandage Dress - BCBG Max Azria
Knit Sweater - Mark Up (mommy bought in Buenos Aires)
Flats - Forever 21 (growing to my number 1 daily shoes)
Canvas Bag - Diesel (a present from daddy)

Bandage dresses might not be a good example of comfort but the flats and sweater does make it up.

Love this 2 pieces for daily use. The sweater fits in most of my  bags and the shoes are comfy enough to walk miles.

Vest - Opção
Basic Shirt - Forever 21 (do I still have to say how I love f21?)
Leggings - Charlotte Russe (which is F21 alternative)
Fabric Shoes - Forever 21

It’s amazing how Opção improved so much their style. They were so tacky and boring! The best thing about it is that they kept the low prices.

Those shoes would be my potentially favourite pair if not for the fact that it’s easily destroied and can’t handle rainy days. It’s not looking really good lately cause I did walk out wearing it on a rainy day.. by accident, of course.

Fake Glasses

White Lacey Shirt - Dolce Rosa (from Shibuya 109)
Wet Leggings and Flats - Forever 21 (where half of my recent closer came from)
Perfume Flask Necklace - Vintage (grandma's)
Fake Glasses - Icing (kinda like Claire's but not as cute)
Black Net Necklace - Street Market (it was supposed to be some sort of scarf but the strippes fell down)

These pictures are not new but I realized it hasn’t been posted here yet. It was posted on my lookbook before.

I noticed that my favourite jewerlies were given by my grandma. Either vintage or not.

My favourite daily clothes I bought in Forever 21 while i was in Florida.

My favourite special itens were bought on a trip to Japan in 2008.

Conclusion! Recife sucks for shopping.

My Shelter

My bedroom in my mom’s apartment.

At first I had plans on how to style it.. but as always plans never work out and everything is changed in the last minute.

The onix apple and the pineapple abajour.. the two ludic picture frames.. the flowers that my grandma gave me…

Every single item on this table has a deep meaning for me.

My grandma thought on how to organize everything and chose the colors.

I chose the furniture and curtain. I really wanted a lacey curtain so she made it herself for me. Lovely gramma! ^^

My bedroom is not done yet though. There are still some details missing such as shelves and wardrobe.

Also I still enjoy stealing my sister’s bedroom. Every once in a while I ask her to sleep in mine so I can steal hers 😀 Lovely sister.
