Beauty Haul in San Francisco

Beauty Haul in San Francisco. Features Natasha Denona, Hourglass, Bare Minerals, Milk Makeup, Tatcha and many more. Sephora.


Today's post is a beauty haul that I did in Sephora, in San Francisco.
If you know me by now, you know that whenever I have the chance, I'm always in to visit a Sephora store. Here in the Netherlands, we don't have it, so, it's totally justified, right? ­čśü
I try to avoid going crazy over there because it is tempting especially in the States since they have brands I can't find here in the Netherlands (nor in Portugal).

Travel | Long haul flight essentials

Travel | Long haul flight essentials. Features Sony WH-1000XM3 headphones and the best travel pillow ever.


Still living in the "San Francisco" mood, I figured it would be cool to share with you what are (or were) my long haul flight essentials.
These items were thought to make my whole journey more comfortable, so I'd arrive at my destination as sharp as possible.

Jetlag: how to overcome it ASAP

Jetlag: how to overcome it ASAP. My tips for this common issue when traveling.


I normally don't post travel-related posts on Tuesday, however, as I am currently dealing with today's subject, overcome jetlag, so I figured it would be appropriate to share it as I "do it".
As you may have noticed, in case you follow on Instagram and/or on Facebook, I was in San Francisco (CA, USA) last week and it was a blast!!

Skincare | Top 3 Hydrating Masks

Sesderma C-Vit eye patches, Belif Aqua bomb sleeping mask and The true tincture mask - chamomile


If you have been reading this blog, and more specifically my skincare related posts, you may now that I'm that girl with the best skin you can have: sensitive, dry and dehydrate! YAY! the best combo ever... not! Therefore, I always gravitated towards products that help to provide moisture and hydration to my skin, while being gentle. Or else, I'll feel the side effects right away.

Travel - A weekend in Venice


It was mid-March when I finally visited Venice for the first time!
For the longest time, me and Mr. A have been talking about going to Venice, but somehow it just ever came to happen.
Until now, when we decided to go celebrate our 10th anniversary in this beautiful and so remarkable city.

Get to know me - 10 favorites

Get to know me - 10 favorites TAG

Hello everyone!!!

Long time no see, right?
I know, I know... Last time, I wrote I'd keep up with blogging and all that, and in the end, I didn't.
But it was mostly due to lack of free time and organization.
Now, I've got a new "plan of attack" so I can have more free time to dedicate to my hobbies, blogging included.

So, for my "comeback" I thought of doing a different type of post; now that I think of it, a tag for a change, and what better than a "Get to know me" tag, right?
But, this one is a top 10 favorites tag.

1. Favorite Food

Caldo Verde Soup.
This is a Portuguese potato and kale soup and I love it!!! Can eat it any time of the day, and if you let me, I'll eat a whole pan of it in no time.

2. Favorite Drink

(or fresh still water haha)

3. Favorite Scent

The beach scent...

4. Favorite Color

Navy blue.

5. Favorite City

Lisbon, of course!

6. Favorite Animal

My sweet choco bomb, Cooper!

7. Favorite Hobby

I have many hobbies I like, and hardly any time to dedicate to any of them, but if I have to choose just one, then it would have to be reading.

8. Favorite Emoji


9. Favorite Flower

Hmmm... tough one as I'm not a "flower girl", however, I like Hortensias, for example.

10. Favorite Restaurant

A good Japanese restaurant always makes me happy.


I hope you enjoyed this tag and feel free to answer this tag yourself.

Hey, did you also notice that this post marks the very first post where I actually am on a picture?! Like, full-on?! Yeah!!!

And not just any picture; this one, was taken by the lovely and super talented Emilie Garcin. Visit her website and be amazed by her work!

I'll "see" you soon on a new post!
