3 easy braids with flowers

03:14


Hello guys! Today I bring to you a video, new video that I update on the channel this week!
It's about 3 really easy type of braids using fakes flowers on hair. I am from Brazil and there the Spring is coming so let's play with flowers on our hairs?
What you gonna need?
- Some hairpins
- Hair elastic
- Little fake flowers (with wire on the tip)
And your hair! hehe

1. Flowers Hairband



1- This first one, you can use with your hair tied or using your hair loose. I like to use with my hair loose. But you also can change to the braid, making it larger or tighter (like mine).
Make a braid with the hair above your ear and do the same on the another side, then you cross them over your head as a hairband and fasten with hairpins, put the flowers in all the braids and done!
If you use larger flowers, make larger braids, so it'll be more symmetrical and really beautiful.

2. Flowers Bun Hair



2 - This braid is really discreet. The braid is the bun, and if you have a long hair it'll be really beautiful. You will tie your hair like a ponytail and after making a large braid (so in that way your bun will have volume). So using the hairpins you make a bun hairstyle and put the flowers around it and done!

3. Flower Bouquet Braid


3- The flowers bouquet braid is so easy as classical to use. It's a romantic hairstyle but you can use with a modern outfit too!
Split your front hair in two, and make a braid with each lock of hair. Then take them to the back of your head and using hairpins fasten it. Put the flowers bouquet with hairpins and done too!
Simple yeah?

Those braids are super easy to do, right? Hope you enjoyed it too!

Sorriso Mágico

13:41


Hey guys! I am back with more "Nails Polish of the Week"!
Same brand, different color. I love this brands how I already said, so always that I go to Cascais city, I buy a new one. They have infinite colors and are really cheap. Where I buy it, it's about 1 euro.

And this one is 25 Sorriso (in English "Smile") of the Cliché brand. This color is so smooth so I did double layer on my nails. But just one layer is already beautiful, but softer.




This color is really magical and good in every situation. Its a "Sorriso" on our nails... Like my "Book of the Luck" said; "The meeting" - "The question that bothers you it'll be sorted well, a new meeting comes bringing with itself the satisfaction" like a happy couple.
And yeah, I am satisficed with this nails polish of the week! And about you?

Classes

Swimming Classes

11:09


Hey Guys! I have news today... I will start to do swimming classes this week! Yeah!
Well, I really wanted to do so exercises, but I confess I hate gym and this kind of exercises too. I like exercises like some sports, but anyway, I decided to do swimming classes because it's good for all body and will help me to lose weight quickly and healthy. As it works all body (muscles and blah blah blah) it'll make me lose weight proportionally too. It's good, right?

But as all classes, we need some stuffs to start, and in my case it's - thanks God - not too much.
So, I will use:
- Swimming suit
- Swimming cap
- Towel
- Flip flops (haha it's a funny word - at least to me who speak Portuguese)
And if I wish, I can take shower there too. And I will, because I prefer to be clean before to go home.



So I took some pictures about what I'll be taking to the classes... Well, I just didn't take about the flip flops, but doesn't need it, does it?
This swimming suit I bought just for it. But I think it's so beautiful and maybe I use in another situation haha. It's comfortable and looks really good on the body. A little retro style, I like it!
And as I said, I prefer to take a shower there, so I will bring with me my shampoo (Garnier; I love this brand, especially this one to blonde hair giving my hair some highlights), soap (Nivea - stranberry and milk - I love sweet smell), hair comb and those things to keep myself clean enough ... haha

Let's see how it goes!

Case

September Wishlist

17:21


Hey guys!
How long I didn't post a Wishlist here? Wow, I would say; a long long time. But I feel it's time to a new wishlist here! So new month and new list, right? 

Well this list it's not just about fashion stuffs, it's about make up and arts stuffs too. For who doesn't know I am an illustrator too, so arts stuffs are always in my wishlist.
If you don't know my work as an illustrator I will link here my Tumblr, where I share a bit of it.
But coming back to the list, let's talk about a little bit of those desired objects.

  1. Make up case - Let's start with make up things... I do like make up and have a lot colors and brand and all those things. But at moment I am keeping all my things in many little cases because I don't have a proper place to keep it. So I think if I have a proper make up case I could save my make up stuffs more organized and it would be more easy to find and use all those things.
  2. Make up brushes set - Well, as an illustrator I do love brushes. So now imagine being a person who loves make up too... Haha Of course I want it! It's not just about luxury, but a necessity too. I have a make up brushes set already, but just one of each type of brush, and when you are making a make up you can't use the same brush to many colors or you would messy up your makeup. So have more than one option it's a good idea. In this way you can use a dark shadow eyes and a bright one without dirty the colors with a dirty brush. So, yeah it's a good thing to my wishlist!
  3. Classic tartan skirt - Who never had one?! I did, a red one long time ago. And I wanna come back have one in my closet. Who knows me, knows I am a huge fan of 80's/90's, and tartan skirt is a classic and almost an obligation to have in your closet. I do like tartan clothes, you can use getting a grunge inspirations as a classical one. And match with a lot pieces, it's almost a key piece of the fashion. And it's super amazing in autumn outfits! 
  4. Oxford Shoes - Own so British style, do I need say anything else? The British way is my inspiration in many things, and the fashion is one of them. I really love those shoes, but unfortunately I never had a chance to have one. When I lived in Brazil I was always search about those shoes, well then I came to Portugal and tried to forget it. But honestly, how can I? And it's other piece that we can call a "key piece".
  5. Watercolor pen brush and Copic Marker set - Let's go to the art list part! Those two things are to paint work. The watercolor pen brush is a pen that the tip is a brush and you put water inside of it and you use to paint in watercolor art, so you don't need wet all the time the brush to paint, the water comes out whiles you paint. Cool yeah? And the second is a marker set, but what is different in this set? Those marker you can paint without make those ink mark when you need pass the ink over another ink again, and it blur with another colors already painted on the paper, like you were paint with a wet ink. So it's you can paint with "pen" - that is so convenient - but getting a wet ink effect. 
So guys, this is my wishlist of this month, and I hope can buy at least one of these things this month. But if I do, I will let you know about on the Instagram and blog!
So, what is your wishlist for September? Let me know!
