Stuff you can take with you on an air-plain

If you're flying out somewhere this summer, don't forget you need to pay attention to what you take in your bag! If you are taking a small cabin bag, you are very limited with the amount of products -- specially liquids -- you can take with you. I have a couple of tips to help you.

-- Please be nice and supportive and click on at least one of the pictures! I'd do the same for you. Thank you! --

It is always nice to take eye-drops with you. These from Bepanthene are actually my favorite. Why? Because they in individual droppers. Its extreamly more sanitary! And you can take just a few on your bag, right next to you!
Most products actually come in travel size. I actually prefer buying the travel sizes than the regular sizes because I am never able to use the whole product before the "best used by" date, and I always end up wasting a lot of product. And they are cheaper, and usually come with a nice little cute bag!
Another tip is to take a solid lipstick instead of a liquid one. I had a liquid gloss once, that with the pressure inside the plain just exploded. Everything got super sticky and disgusting! Avoid that please!
Lastly, you know I'm obsessed with solid shampoo. And yep, this is my last tip. Instead of taking with you a bottle of shampoo, take one of these Lush solid shampoo bars, It is so conveniente and easy, and you also won't have that issue with the --possible -- bottle explosion incidentes.

Review | MYLABEL Anti Celulite Gel

A few weeks ago, I showed you a picture of all the products that I was testing out, and asked you what were you more curious to read about. Most of you said mentioned this product.

It took me a really long time to write this post. To form a good opinion on these types of products it's important to use them for a large time frame, and consistently. So I've been using it for maybe 3 months now -- my bottle is actually almost empty -- and I think I'm ready to tell you all about it.

I bought it at a Continente, on a impulse buy. I'd never tried something like this before, so thought I'd give it a shot. I algo bought a similar product from Nivea -- from their Derma Spa line -- and I am going to start using that one as soon as this one is empty. At the end, I'm hoping I will compare the two of them.

This product is a blue-ish transparent gel, that looks very nice and refreshing. It has a very medicinal smell, but not the good kind. And the smell really sticks to you for a few hours. Yeah... It is a little pungent, so I would advise you to put it on before going to bed and then shower in the morning if ypu don't want so smell like a walking hospital. Also, it is a little bit sticky. After you apply it you will stick to your clothes, to your sheets... it's a bit a annoying!

But I know you are only interested in one question: Does it work? And the answer is YES.This product will not make you celulite disappear like magic, but it definitely makes you skin tighter and smoother! I applied it mostly to my thighs, and I used a celulite roller to massage it in. And I can fell the changes.
I'm going to be honest and tell you that it is time consuming to be adding this to your legs, and really massaging it in, rubbing and squeezing. And although it works for me, I'm not sure that I'll add this step to my every-day routine. And if you can endure the stickiness, and if you try this product let me know if it worked for you!

Dresslink Wishlist | Skin Care Editon + COUPON CODE

A proper skin care is very importante. Our skin is the largest barrier against infection that we have. Keeping our skin healthy and moist helps keep this barrier strong! When the skin gets dry or irritated by harsh soaps, cracks in the skin can occur. 

You don't need to spend $$$$$$ on skin care products. If you can buy all high-end skin care products, great. But most of us are always searching for effective and more affordable alternatives. I'm showing you here some products that I've found on that are very cheap and that are definitely going to be awesome for your skin. We all know how well Asian beauty and skin care products -- usually -- work. And when I saw these, I knew I had to show you. 

[1] | [2] | [3] |[4] | [5]

-- Please be nice and supportive and click on at least one of the links! I'd do the same for you. Thank you! --

This Microdermabrasion Exfoliator [1] type of device looks awesome and it is super cheap. When paired with a nice cleanser [2][4] , and used regularly, it can really make wonders for your face. You can also use it on your body -- it comes with different brushes and that you can switch around. It is even water proof, so you can use it in the shower! I think that for it's price -- it's a great deal!

Something that I also love, and that is extremely cheap on  is this Black Peel-off mask [3]! If you haven't tried a peel off mask, YOU NEED TO! It's one of the most satisfying things ever... too peel off that mask and to see all the black heads attached to it. I've bought this exact one, once off Amazon, and it works really well.

There's also have something that I'm drying to try -- and that I'm differently going to order! -- this feet masks [5] that make all of you feet' dead skin fall off! It's gross and awesome at the same time!

How to become a Mermaid

Ok. I don't know how you can actually become a Mermaid. But I know Mermaids are super trendy and everybody is obsessed with mermaid stuff -- including me! So I've been looking around for some Mermaid inspired stuff, but completely wearable.
 I think, all this stuff I've picked out, could make the perfect summer outfit and would make you feel like a magical creature from the seas. It's also think this is what hipster Ariel would wear today.

TAG | The Not Homophobic TAG

Hello! Yesterday I was nominated by Mariana from the  blog A Desorientada!
This tag is called The Not Homophobic TAG and it's all about respect and equality! Again the questions were in Portuguese, but I've translated them.

1- Do consider yourself homophobic?/Consideras-te homofóbico/a?
No. Of course not! I believe in equality and loving other people, not caring about their gender, color, religion...!

2- Do you have any idol that supports or discriminates LGBT?/ Tens algum ídolo que apoie ou discrimine o movimento LGBT?
I don't know how to answer this question because I think that an "Idol" should be a role-model and not an homophobic figure. So I would never idolatre someone that is like that. I don't really care if someone is gay or not. I don't care. I don't pay attention to that. I believe that people are just people, no matter what their convictions are. 
I have to say that I really like Neil Patrick Harris (Barney Stinson from How I met your mother). He is gay, married and has two of the cutest twin kids I've ever seen. I follow him on Instagram and I think he is truly and advocate for the LGBT community

3- Have you ever seen and movie or TV show that talks about homosexuality?/Já viste algum filme ou série que aborde o tema da homossexualidade?
Yep. Of course. think most movies or tv shows approach this topic really often. I'm currently watching "Orange is the new black" and they talk a lot about it. 

4-And have you ever seen one that discriminantes gay people?/ E já viste algum que discrimine os gays?
Oh yeah. TV shows like American Dad, The Family Guy, they make jokes, and make fun of gay people all the time. And yeah, I admit, I think most of the jokes are pretty funny. And I know that they are offensive for this community. But the world needs to be able o laugh about our differences. Everybody is different, we all have different believes. This is how I am. I can make fun of myself, of my best friends and not be offended by it. If we were all able to do this, life would be much easier. 

5- Do you support gay adoption?/ Apoias a adoção por parte dos casais gays?
I've given a lot of thought into this topic, and I could write a whole post about it.. I am not 100% sure that raising a kid in a "homosexual" environment is good or not. I'm not an expert in pedopsychology or whatever, but I think it is important while we are growing up to have a female and male figure to look up to, to teach us all about life, from their diferente perspectives. I just think it's important. And having an aunt or grandmother is not exactly the same. 
BUT... I also think that having a loving and caring family is way better than having no family at all! So for me this is a grey area. 
Take not that I am not against it. I just think that it would be better for the kid to grow with a mom and a dad... maybe I'm wrong. But we always need to also see these issues from the perspective of the kids. It's not only the right that homosexuals have to build a family, but also the right that kids have to belong to a family that where fit in and really relate to.

6-What do you think about homophobic people?/ O que achas das pessoas homofóbicas?
I don't like that expression. I don't like to say that someone is homophobic. What does homophobic really means? Someone that is afraid of gay people?! That's a stupid definition. We were all raised with different values. Some of us were raised to accept, some of us were raised to despise. And if we start hating and despising homophobic people, aren't we being just like them? We are hatting someone that believes in something different than we do. It's the same. I believe that our generation and the generations to come are being though how to be more OK with different choices. And this homofobia, as we call it, will eventually disappear. You know, I don't really like all this labels. We are what we are.

7- Do you have any homophobic friends/ Tens amigos homofóbicos?
Not really. We are all very open to different people. I admit that it makes me slightly uncomfortable to see a gay couple making out in public, and I know that most of my friends feel that way too, but I think that it's because it's something that -- maybe unfortunately -- you don't see every day, and it becomes a spectacle. But I guess we also get uncomfortable when we se a straight couple making out. 

8- What would you do if you saw an homophobic friend of your discriminating gay people?/O que farias se visses um amigo homofóbico a discriminar gays?
Well, my group of friends, we have a very dark humor. And we make fun of gay people all the time. Is that discrimination? No, because we also make fun of other people. We make fun of each others all the time. But over all we are very inclusive and we don't fucking care what you label yourself. I have never seen someone not being allowed to do something because he or she is gay -- i know it happens, and i have no idea how to react to a situation like that because for me this is completely surreal.
And in my group of friends, I have two gay guys. That are awesome. And they very well included in the society and I've never ever heard them say that they weren't able to do something because they're gay.

I'm not going to tag anyone, but I invite you all to answer this questions on your blog!

We freaking won!!!

I was sceptical from the begining.  But I am truly proud of this team! I am so proud!

French people are extremly unwelcome and they almost despise portugueses. I've felt it. And it feels damn good to show them that we are better that they think. They are arrogant and just mean.

Oh and btw,  french wine and cheese are extremly overrated!

Saturday, July 9, 2016 | Evening and Prom dresses

I've told you before about how I did not wear a dress to my high-school prom, right? I know -- I'm not a normal girl. And yes, I regret that decision now. Specially because I keep finding really awesome websites selling gorgeous prom dresses. Today I'm showing you It's a German online-shop that sells the most stunning Brautkleider (dresses)! They have prom dresses, long and short, evening and wedding dresses. I've browsed through their website and here are a two of my favorites my favorites!

This is an Abendkleider Lang (Long evening dress). It made off what it seams to be an extremely soft, flowy chiffon. It is available in all the colors of the rainbow but I think this sky-blue is super beautiful and perfect for the summer.. I love the crossing of the straps on the back.

And this one, OMG it is stunning! I LOVE this dress! I love the bohemian feeling about it. I saw it in the Hochzeitskleider (weeding dresses) section! But it is so gorgeous! I think I could wear it as a normal party-dress! They actually have an huge selection of wedding dresses and they are all stunning. But this one... gosh. I could see my self getting married at a beach with this dress!

Wishlist | Lego

You know that deep down inside I'm like 10-yo right?

I've always loved LEGO toys and I don't think they are just for kids! I still love building them, and I just love all the super cool sets that they are always coming up with. But my ultimate favorite thing are the small blind bags with the figurines. Tbh, whenever I'm feeling sad or depressed I go to Toys'r'us and I just buy two small packs, I open them up, put them together and feel instantly better.

My key-chain is actually a Lego-Man that I bought in a Lego Store in Paris. Can you imagine, a gigantic super awesome store, that only sell Lego Sets? And you can even just buy a bucket of pieces? Yep, they give you a bucket and you can fill it up with as many pieces as you like. They also have a pit of lego-man parts for you to make your own, personalized lego-man. It's literally Lego-Heaven. I think I could live in that store!

These are a few of my favorite sets -- for now...
I know I am not going to buy any of these ever, but they look extremely fun. Don't you agree? Oh and btw, they are also extremely expensive! Click on the pictures and check out the prices!
