I've studied economics in my home country, Portugal, but 9 years ago I decided to follow my makeup dream in London. The dream I followed, gave me more in return that I would expect. No, I didn't became a world renowned makeup artist, however instead, throughout this journey I learned more about myself and the different passions I have in life, besides makeup. Travelling has become one of my biggest passions. Being in contact with different cultures, it changes you spiritually and teaches you to enjoy the present and being grateful for it. However, travelling isn't my only passion, I love fashion and food too.
I want to share with you those moments that buzz me inside and inspire me.

Asos and Shein Shopping Haul

I am this week again in Tenerife and every excuse is good to justify some clothes shopping. This is what normally happens in my mind: “oh I’m going to be away from home, perfect, what will I wear?” and when I come back to planet earth is too late, because my mind has already decided new outfits are needed. If my wardrobe would talk, probably would say something like: “I feel claustrophobic, why is she stuffing me with more rags, when the hangers are overcrowded and half of the clothes are classified as not suitable for covid season, so why …

International recipes worth trying

Since lockdown started, I have been trying to fill my time with different hobbies and one of my favourites is trying recipes with my boyfriend.

In case, you want to explore your cooking talents and expand …

When Dior launched DiorShow On Stage Liners I was so surprised to see a “rainbow” of eyeliners suitable for any makeup geek.
