... in my hometown!
Estamos numa época festiva com o Natal e o Ano Novo e, como não podia deixar de ser, vim passá-lo na minha terra natal com os meus pais! Não há nada como voltar a casa!
We're at a special time of the year with Christmas and New Year and of course I had to come to my hometown to celebrate it with my parents! There's nothing like coming back home!

... flock together!
Nem acredito que já estamos no final do ano, como o tempo passa depressa! Está na altura de rever o que fizemos (e o que ficou por fazer!) e pensar nos mil e um sonhos que queremos realizar em 2014!
I can't believe we're at the end of the year, time definitely flies! It's time to review what we've done (and what's still left to do!) and think of the thousand dreams we want to fullfil in 2014!

... hats off!
As temperaturas têm vindo a baixar cada vez mais por aqui e já se torna impossível sair à rua sem usar umas quantas camadas de roupa! Nada que me preocupe, claro, ou não fosse eu uma pessoa que adora parecer uma cebola! haha
Temperatures have been dropping more and more around here and it's starting to become impossible to go out without wearing a few layers of clothes! Nothing that worries me, of course, I one of those people who love to look like an onion! haha

... a new hairstyle!
Cá está, o meu "novo" cabelo! Quem me conhece sabe que já tinha o cabelo comprido (aliás, compridão!) há anos... parece que estava na altura de fazer algo diferente! O que acharam da mudança?
Here it is, my "new" hair! Those who know me are aware that I already had long (actually, very long!) hair for years... it seems it was about time to do something different! What you do you think of this makeover?

... a leopard can't change its spots!
Ainda recentemente confessei que o padrão leopardo é um favorito meu, a verdade é que esta tendência está mesmo para ficar no meu roupeiro! Perdoem-me aqueles que acham que este padrão é demasiado cavewoman, mas eu não resisto a um padrão felino e selvagem! Confessem, não dá logo um ar especial?
Just recently I confessed the leopard print is one of my favourites, the truth is this trend is really to stay in my closet! Forgive me those who think this print is way too much "cavewoman", but I can't resist a good feline and wild print! Go ahead, confess it, doesn't it give a special look?

What I Read: November

Estamos quase a chegar ao final do ano e eu ao fim do meu objectivo de leitura de 2013! Em Novembro consegui ler quatro livros e mal posso esperar por fazer um balanço final no mês que vem!
Até lá, aqui fica o que li este mês...
We're almost at the end of the year and I'm close to the end of my reading goal for 2013! In November I read four books and I can't wait to make a final balance next month!
Until then, here's what I read this month...

... a bit of Spring
Penso que já disse isto uma ou duas vezes aqui no blog, mas a maior parte dos meus vestidos tem um padrão floral. Não consigo explicar qual a razão que me leva a adquirir mais vestidos com flores quando claramente já tenho suficientes, mas mal vi este da Fashion Union esqueci qualquer explicação lógica e soube que tinha de ser meu! 
I think I've mentioned it a couple times here on the blog, but most of my dresses have a floral print. I can't explain the reason why I keep getting more dresses with flowers when I clearly have enough, but the moment I saw this one from Fashion Union I forgot any reasonable explanation and knew it had to be mine!

... black & white with a pop of red!
Não se deixem enganar pela minha idade: em termos de estética e estilo, penso que deveria ter nascido há umas boas décadas atrás! Sem dúvida que as eras do glamour, dos vestidos rodados, do batom vermelho e do rockabilly teriam encaixado perfeitamente na minha personalidade, mas, já que nasci quase no virar do século, divirto-me a usar roupas que combinem um pouco do passado com aquilo que é o presente!
Don't be fooled by my age: in termos of aesthetics and style, I think I should have been born a few decades ago! Without a doubt, the eras of glamous, rounded dresses, red lipsticks and rockabilly would fit perfectly my personality but, since I was born almost in the turn of the century, I have fun wearing clothes that combine both a bit of the past with what's the present!

... it's time to get warm!
Parece que finalmente o frio chegou a Portugal e já sabe bem usar roupas quentinhas! Apesar de eu ser muito friorenta, no que respeita a roupa esta é a minha altura do ano preferida (ou não fosse eu obcecada por usar roupa em camadas!)... não há nada melhor que nos mantermos quentes com estilo! 
It seems like cold has finally arrived in Portugal and it starts to feel good to wear warm clothes! Despite the fact I'm very sensitive to cold, when it comes to clothes this is my favourite time of the year (don't forget I'm obsessed wth layering!)... there's nothing better than keeping yourself warm in style!

If you want blood

... you better dress it up!
Vermelho é (e sempre será!) uma das minhas cores preferidas. Não há volta a dar, acho que nasci para usar esta cor! É claro, há mil e uma formas de usar vermelho e, mais ainda, imensos tons de vermelho para o fazer, mas tenho que confessar que os meus preferidos variam sem dúvida entre o tom vermelho sangue ou cor de vinho. Há coisa melhor que uma cor que chama a atenção e demonstra confiança?
Red is (and always will be!) one of my favourite colours. There's no other way to say this, I think I was born to wear this colour! Of course, there are a thousand ways to wear read and even more tones of red to do it, but I must confess my favourite tones vary without a doubt from blood red to wine red. Is there anything better than wearing a colour that drives people's attention and shows confidence?

Dressed up in leopard skin

... mix it up!
Eu adoro usar leopardo. Curiosamente, quando o faço, costumo receber alguns comentários fora do comum mas que tendem normalmente a ir no mesmo sentido... Basicamente, costumo ouvir que gostam da forma como uso leopardo, ainda que não seja um padrão fácil de usar e que pode bem dar para o torto. Sim, é verdade, é uma tendência muito ambígua... mas isso alguma vez me impediu de usar o que quer que seja?
I love wearing leopard. It's funny because, when I do, I usually get some comments out of the ordinary that pretty much go in the same way... Basically, I often listen people saying that they like the way I wear leopard even though it ain't an easy print to wear and that may just well go wrong. Yes, it's true, it's a very ambiguous trend... but did that ever stop me from wearing anything?

... the place I call home
Quando estive na minha terra natal pelo meu aniversário, aproveitei para tirar estas fotos. Por terra natal não digo o sítio que me viu nascer ou até mesmo onde a minha família tem raízes, mas antes o local que me viu crescer e do qual guardo muitas memórias... 
When I was at my hometown for my birthday, I decided to take these photos. By hometown I do not mean the place where I was born or even where my family has its roots but rather the one that saw me grew up and from which I keep a lot of memories...
