Got it!

Hi loves,
Yesterday I got Umbigo magazine on paper!
I felt so proud of seeing my work in a great magazine such as this one! Here are some snapshots I took. Didn't capured all the pages, just a few! They featured twelve pages with my two editorials.

In these two editorials I worked with the great make up artist Inês Castelo. You must check out her work. She is very good with vintage inspired make up! Check out also the both great photographers of these editorials Juliana Robin & Mariza Seita.

Old house

Hello my loves,
today I'm going to post some pictures of my living room, with and without Christmas decorations.

It's my favorite room in the house because it's very comfy and I love my furniture. 
My lazy days are passed in that rocking chair reading Agatha Christie's novels, creating, chilling and smoking. I'm gonna miss this home a lot, but a wonderful and more beautiful one is waiting me for the next week! 

The first picture is of my baby persian called Poirot and my beautiful mid century table!

It's been a while...

...since I wrote to you! Right now I'm in a very busy time of my life that consumes most of my time.

The year is almost over and I feel that a new wonderful  phase is coming!
This past year I got a job that I really like, as a visual merchandiser, I joined in Lisboa Vintage's team, did wonderful things with them, worked and met great people, and finally I'm moving to a new home with my two babies and the love of my life.

From now on I will be posting daily about my life, my work, and my inspirations.

"It's a new dawn
It's a new day
It's a new life
For me
And I'm feeling good"

Sleep tight my dears.

Inspiration for today

Vintage photobooth pictures are so pretty, emotive and inspirational. You can almost feel what they're feeling. These are some of my favorites from what I've found. I love the ones with young Elvis. He was so stunning and had that beautiful greek profile.

I hope these inspire you as much as they inspire me.
