I'm having a really relaxing afternoon and (because I'm too lazy to finish my school project) I'm re-reading my favorite book. Looking for Alaska is the story of a boy named Miles that goes to a boarding school to pursuit his "great perhaps", there he meets great friends, but specially a girl named Alaska. The story is divided in two parts, before and after, and well I won't tell you no more. This book really made a difference in my life, I read while I was in NY in a boarding school as well, so it meant a lot. It taught me about love, forgiveness and people, but the most important is that it gave me the biggest inspiration for my first tattoo. Alaska is always wondering about the way to get out of the labyrinth of life and my way, after a lot of resolution, is to go through.
I took this 2 blocks from my house in NY
Ohhhh how I miss NY, can't wait to be back there. Anyways read the book, it's really worth it!
Some compare it to online dating, but it's so more sentimental than that. Seriously though. I can't express my love for online shopping, it's so practical and fun. I could never choose between actual store shopping and online shopping, cause my shopping (I'm already tired of typing the word shopping) routine happens in between both and that's how I like it. Yes, many say that the fact of not being able to try the piece of clothing on is a big turn down, but that's the fun in it, besides you can find some really great deals. Anyways, today's all about my favorite online stores.
Nasty Gal, ok some of you might have heard oh this one, but I can't get enough of it. The models, the clothes, the owner (Sofia rocks) and their instagram. They are pretty nasty chich and their sales are a-ma-zing. http://www.nastygal.com
Net-a-porter, then again that's also a famous one. But if you want to make good deals on luxury items, this is the place to go for. Simple and chic, just like a little black dress. http://www.net-a-porter.com
Sabo Skirt, finally something you might have never of right? Haha, jokes aside, Sabo Skirt is a really nice online store from Australia, they have some really sweet, yet full of attitude, pieces. Their instagram is a lot of fun and they act just like Nasty Gal when it comes to their models, they are picked by hand and are always introduced to their followers. https://saboskirt.com/index.php?cPath=1
Dame Jolie, I'm not sure if this website ships outside of Brazil, but for my Brazilian readers this is a really nice accessories store, with real jewelry and fake ones as well. http://www.damejolie.com.br/products-page/
Hypebeast, this website is 90% men stuff, but well who doesn't like men stuff right? They have the coolest backpacks, accessories and the best gifts for valentines day and all that shit (I'm a romantic as you can see hehe.) http://store.hypebeast.com
TOBI, my eyes just got a little blurry seeing all the amazing stuff Tobi has to sell right now, besides the amazing clothing and prices, they have incredible deals: 30% off NEW ARRIVALS daily and 50% off your first shop. This feels like a Polishop advertising, but what are you waiting for? http://www.tobi.com (my Prom dress was from Tobi!)
Local Heroes, I love funky and stylish clothes, funny tshirts, beanies and caps, fashion is my playground and I'm all about having fun with my outfits. So if you agree Local Heroes is your place, Urban Outfitters feeling (btw my favorite store in the whole world by far.) http://localheroesstore.com/store/
ASOS, last but no least there is ASOS, it is quite famous, but is still really good, you can make some really good deals and a special highlight for party dresses! http://us.asos.com/?hrd=1
Hope you guys liked this post and found at least 1 or 2 new online shopping spots!
Hi there people. I've been really busy and dealing with some personal stuff, but now I'm back, stronger than ever hehe. Seriously I'm excited, I've been missing this.
A while ago I went to an amusement park here in Brazil, in a city close to mine, called Beto Carreiro. It's not as big as Disneyland but it's a lot of fun if you go with the right people. They have 4 really exciting rides, Big Tower, Fire Whip, Star Mountain and The Elevator, and so many really funny ones, I couldn't stop laughing the entire day. It was sunny and the company was great.
I guess it's fair enough to start over with a good vibe, I hope you guys can feel it in these pictures. It's freezing right now, so nothing better than remember sunny days (how poetic.)
I'm crazy about make up. Who isn't right? But I must admit that I was never that much interested on the products fabricated in Brazil, the international ones were always so much better, brighter, fancier.. That has changed. Quem Disse. Berenice? is a new brand that just opened its doors on several cities in Brazil and it's simply amazing. Colorful, happy, 100% Brazilian. The names are funny and the products are intelligent, offering several options for choice. I stopped on the store in my city that opened a month ago and I couldn't control myself I went crahhhhzy, after all you can never have too many products right?
Me and my mom are thinking about going for a second shopping spree (yes we were/are pretty excited), so all I can say is: Brazilians run to the closest store, non-Brazilians if you're stopping by this store is a must stop, even if it's just to look (a-ha-m yea, I bet you'll just take a look...)
