YOU'RE SUCH A BEACH!

Hi! Finally I went outside today... In the morning I went for a run to the beach and during the afternoon, when I was planning to stay inside, a friend of mine asked me to go to the beach and we did...
The sky was blue, there were barely any clouds, it was hot and perfect to sleep a bit, although I didn't haha.
Oh, just saying: my outfit sucks today... I wasn't planning to go out today so basically I just wore a retro print top (my mom's) and my high waisted bell bottom pants from Burberry. I didn't even wore any shoes hahahahaha.

(Obviously, for the beach I just added some shorts instead of the pants)

-Olá! Finalmente saí hoje... De manhã fui correr até à praia e durante a tarde, quando planeava ficar em casa, uma amiga minha perguntou-me se queria a praia e fomos...
O céu estava azul, praticamente não havia nuvens, estava calor e perfeito para dormir, embora não o tenha feito haha.
Ah, só para avisar: o meu outfit não presta nada nada... Não pretendia sair por isso basicamente vesti uma t-shirt com padrão retro (da minha mãe) e as minha calças á boca de sino de cinta subida da Burberry. Nem sequer calcei sapatos hahahahaha. 

(É óbvio que para praia usei calções em vez das calças)
I know this looks disgusting, but today while going to the beach  Magda gave me a shock when she touched and as I jumped (like a sleeping cat jumps when suddenly someone turns the vacuum cleaner on)  and I did a scratch! Autch. 
However, I had lots of fun and that's how I look like today! Stay safe, xx, Rita

-Eu sei que é nojento, mas hoje enquanto iamos para a praia, a minha amiga Magda deu-me um choque quando me tocou e assim que eu saltei (como quando um gato está a dormir e de repente alguém liga o aspirador) fiz um arranhão! Autch.
Contudo, diverti-me imenso e é assim que eu estou hoje! Fiquem bem, xx, Rita

PLAIN JANE ✿

Hi!
Besides feeling like doing nothing I also felt it was the right time to wear my scrunchie!
I'm looking like a total Plain Jane today, but I'm not planing on going out so, I guess I'm just confy!
I'm wearing a loose shape flowered blouse, low waist dark blue shorts and my beige shoes...
This is one of those days when I put my hair in a bun, because it looks awful hahaha.

-Olá!
Tirando o facto de não me apetecer fazer nada, acho que já está na altura de usar o meu totó!
Estou uma grandessíssima Plain Jane hoje, mas não pretendo sair de casa por isso acho que estou simplesmente confortável!
Estou a usar uma blusa larga às flores, uns calções de cinta baixa azuis e os meus sapatitos beges!
Estou num daqueles dias em que tenho de fazer um puxinho no cabelo por estar horrivel haha.

So... this is how I look today! Stay safe! xxx, Rita
Pronto, é assim que eu estou hoje! Fiquem bem, xxx, Rita

My blog is now bilingual!

SCALLOPED SKIRT AND SCRUNCHIES DIY

Hello again! 2nd post today, hell yes today I'm feeling like writing, yay!
Well actually no, I came here to show you what I did today! For ages I've been asking my mom for old stuff to destroy, well, not destroy, to recycle and today while I was still recovering from not going to the beach and looking for something boring to do, she came up with this maxi denim skirt of hers, a pair of old jeans and a tropical patterned top and I loved it!
I grabbed my sewing box and started to 'work'.
At first I was thinking of making lots and lots of scrunchies for my hair and maybe give some to my friends, but later I decided to cut the skirt a bit shorter than the knee length, picked up the jeans, made a scalloped hem and sew it.

-Olá outra vez! Já é o segundo post hoje, estou cheia de vontade de escrever, yay!
Por acaso até não, é só para vos mostrar o que fiz hoje! Há séculos que ando a pedir à minha mãe coisas para destruir, bem, talvez destruir não seja o termo certo, reciclar- e hoje enquanto recuperava do facto de não ir à praia e procurar algo que fazer, ela chegou com uma maxi skirt de ganga, um par de jeans velhos e um top com um padrão tropical. Adorei!
Peguei logo na minha caixinha de costura e comecei a 'trabalhar'.
No inicio estava a pensar em fazer muitos totós para mim e para amigas, mas depois decidi cortar a saia um pouco acima do joelho, peguei nos jeans e fiz uma bainha escamada e cosi! 

This is how it looks like:
Foi assim que ficou:

I also made a denim scrunchie to match (maybe not hahaha)
Também fiz um totó de ganga para combinar (talvez não hahaha)

dinner: Fraises au sucre (because everything sounds better in french)
jantar: Fraises au sucre (porque tudo soa melhor em francês)


So... I guess my boring afternoon turned out to be a really funny one! I need to repeat it! Stay safe, xxx, Rita
Então... acho que a minha tarde seca acabou por ser bastante divertida! Preciso de repetir! Fiquem bem, xxx, Rita

The thing is, the messages arrived late and they left without me. Yaaaaay, another boring afternoon! xxx, Rita

-O problema é que as mensagens chegaram atrasadas e foram sem mim. Yaaaaay, mais uma tarde seca! xxx, Rita

p.s- I have my phone again

Kate ♠ Spade NY


I'm currently obsessing with Kate Spade, I knew the brand before but I didn't really care about it...
...things change!

What's Kate Spade New York?
Kate Spade New York is a fashion design house, founded by Kate Spade.
  • Before, it used to sell handbags only, that's why in 1993 it was called Kate Spade Handbags, the ''handbags'' in the name has disappeared later when Kate began to create and sell clothes for women.
  • It has expanded so much that now, there are notebooks, cell phone covers, home stuff, eye wear and even a male line called Jack Spade (by Andy Spade).
  •  The first shop opened in 1996, at NY's SoHo.
  •  The logo is ''kate spade'' ALWAYS lowercased with a spade on top. ADORI-CUTE!
When I think of it I think about colour, tons and tons of bright and vibrant colours, femininism, girly patterns!
Well, see it for yourselves!

The adorable bedding colection:
and some Phone Cases (unfortunately, those are only available for those with an iPhone)

After a while thinking, I've got to a conclusion of what outfit I'd put together from kate spade... YES! ''After A WHILE thinking'', because it's too difficult to make any reasonable decision when facing such cute things...Here it is:


Since I'm really girly and I like bold colours, this brand is definitely the perfect one for me and one of my favourites!
I found this Jolie skirt and tried to match it with some of its colors: black and white, but it didn't look much edgy... I felt like I needed something bold and different in it: the shoes! I chose those electrifying neon blue ones because they stood out and still look good I think...
The handbag wasn't a tough choice at all, I found this little beige and black one with a big bow in it and I found it perfect, once the skirt has those colours and bows as the pattern. The white ring I didn't think about it at all, I found it pretty and that's it, the hat goes well with the rest! 

Tell me what you think of this post, this outfit, if you like or dislike my choices and I hope you enjoyed these pictures with some of Kate Spade's brilliant work! 
Stay safe!, xxx, Rita

1st anniversary!

Sooooo, today, the 25th August 2012 it makes a year since I created this blog and I never really expected it to go this far! Some of you are thinking 'a year? that's nothing but a year' well, if you knew me for real you'd know that I've had a million blogs before this one but didn't take them for real, so I deleted them all, the longest lasted half a year, so it's kind of a miracle that I'm still writing here!
For me it wasn't only a year, it was the year when it all started! I made lots of friends also bloggers and I grew up!
A HUGE THANKS to  my friends who always helped me deciding this and that and specially to my followers and anon readers: without you I wouldn't have anything to be stuck here and now I can try to, but I can't leave this blog!
SO I DID A CAKE...
I was watching tv, thinking of what I was going to write here, how to thank everybody for the support (you know, cheesy stuff) and then I came up with the idea of making a quick & easy cake! So I did a cookie one...
There's not a full recipe to this, well there is but there's no need to use it:

Ingredients:

  • whipping cream
  • cookies
  • condensed milk
  • sugar (opcional)
  • coffee
  • milk (opcional)
So, put the cream in a bowl and add some sugar (or you can also add a little bit of condensed milk, JUST a little, for the taste) and whip it. After that, find a plate where you can put the cake with the size you want (it depends on the cookies you'll be using).
When you have your coffee ready you can add it a little bit of milk if you don't want it to strong, I did it and dip the cookies in it and place them around the plate as you want it and cover it all with the whipping cream.
Repeat it as many times as you want, basically, it's like building a building with the number of floors you want, in the final layer instead of whipping cream, we'll be adding the condensed milk well mixed! If it's too thick and there's whipping cream left, mixed them both and put it on top! 
You can decorate is as you want it! I used chocolate sprinkles!
I suck at writing recipes hahahaha, anyway I hope you liked this post, happy birthday to the blog and I love you all and bla bla... xxx,stay safe, Rita
P.S- I did the cake by eye, I didn't use any specific quantity, you put what you want hahaha.

Rama lama lama ka dinga da ding-dong

Hiya! Finally I saw Grease..
...It's my mom's all time favourite movie and she says she watched it loads and loads of times and still gets goosebumps with it! I loved it:
I knew the cast and some of the songs, because back in 2002 (age 5) we did a childish version of Grease  at the Kidden garden and today I finally watched, it's only a 2 hour long movie: THAT'S NOT FAIR!
At first I was going to watch it yesterday, but only did it for 7 minutes due to my tiredness and the first thing that caught my eye were The Pink Ladies' (Rizzo, Frenchie, Jan and Marty) jackets: love at the first sight:
They're like a girl gang, not High School most popular girls and still walk like they own everything, pretty fearless. Then Sandy Olsson turns out as the new girl, not immediately a Pink Lady but definitely a new friend, specially for Frenchie (the beauty school drop out haha) and except for Betty Rizzo, when she finds out Sandy and Danny have already met before!
These are the boys, Danny Zuko and his also gang ish friends The T-Birds with Greased Lightning, in a dream, because it used to be a rusty car, then it turned out to be this:
One of the moments I enjoyed the most was the Dance-off:
Why? I love all the dance moves: The Mambo, the West Coast Swing, the Cha Cha, the Stroll AND  the Jive!! Plus, the clothes are amazing!
I love everything about it: The t-strap shoes and the bubble dresses, the high waist capri pants and the off the shoulder tops, scarves...their hairstyles, Sandy's headband, Frenchie's 'big mistake' about dying her  hair fluorescent pink or styling it as a pineapple... It's impossible not to adore!
The final is epic and puts an end to this post too! (I think this is the longest post I wrote and I could say I'm proud I have a big post, but that doesn't really matter, because you can start reading it and be like 'that sucks' or you can also think 'that's clever!' anyway, that's something I appreciate to hear from you, if it's good: Thank you, if it's bad well I'm going to work on it!) 
In the end a wild and confident Sandy appears and totally surprises Danny, who appears as a jock! 
Rizzo's pregnancy was a false alarm and Kenickie wants to marry her! Well, basically they all end up together singing and all...
Annnnnd that's it... If you never watched Grease take 1 hour and 50 minutes (it's not even 2 hours come on) of your life to watch it, you'll fall in love with everything! 
xxx, Rita
