Domestic complain

One of the domestic things which really is killing me it’s throwing away food. I have tried in so many ways to minimize that, but still no success. I heard things like “you waste money and of course all your work in the kitchen”, “other people starve and you throw away food”, “eat the food […]

We change. Every year, every minute.

We change our hair color, our style, the work place… We change the address, the eyebrows shape, our food choices, the car, and the vacation destinations. We are continuously changing, transitioning. We are alive, like the seasons. Two years ago you liked the spaghetti, today you like rotini. Your closet was full of colors and […]

“Black” is the new black

Little Black Dress, Little Black Jacket, Coco Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, classy, elegance, mystery… Men in Black, black sheep, black tea, Black Friday… (I can go until next Christmas). You go at the birthday parties, dinner parties, in a bar, a club, at the office, in vacations, to the mall, everyone wears black. Dresses, shirts, pants, […]

Saudade

Homesickness hurts. It’s like having no air for some good seconds. Homesickness hurts slowly and intense. It makes you feel nostalgic. And it’s so suddenly triggered, so deviously and cruel.

Heart of a Fashionista

I am surrounded by women at work every day and I see a lot (thanks God that my retina is no longer ostracized by the hooker shoes and cheap leggings of a previous colleague). I like to believe that I know a little bit more than usual about fashion. I know that Jeanne Paquin was […]

The miniature replica of a Singaporian Reastaurant in Vancouver – Red Ginger. The details are insane! Look at the rice, or the mussels.

Wear Yourself

I don’t proclaim that I know 100% how to be me and feel comfortable in my own skin. I have my own insecurities time by time (especially those 3 days in the months when my hormones are up to the sky and I have the impression that my ass is too big, my arms are […]

Heading in the right direction

(A nice way of saying “I’m Back Bitches!”) Sometimes at the beginning of this year I felt confused in regard to this blog and I was not so sure what the next step will be. I took a sigh and I realized that I just need a break. I didn’t feel very into it and […]

There is only one success…

To be able to spend your life in your own way (Christopher Morley). I have thought over the last weeks what I want to do with this blog. I have spent quite some time thinking if I want to continue or stop. I started this blog with the idea of exploring, sharing, learning and first […]
