Baby Gotta Work It Out #1

Hello everyone. Today's post is a bit different than usual I suppose. Have you ever made a New Year's Resolution? I don't think I ever had, so this year I decided to make one and it is to workout!
I bit of a background story for you, I haven't worked out since 2005 - my last year in High School - since then the only workout that I've done is when I have to run to catch the bus, or I'm late to go somewhere, or when I go out at night and dance for like 4 hours. That's all folks! One of the reasons I also never bothered to workout was because during the years from 2005 till 2008 I lost in total, about 8 kilos due to stress and I felt like if I worked out I would eventually disappear. Then from 2009 till 2011 I maintained my 50/51 Kilos because it was when I started to live abroad and I didn't have mommy's food around soo yeeaahhh. 
2012 was the year that everything changed, while living in London like my cousin likes to put it "You eat with the fat, you are gonna get fat" (lol), so I gain like 3 kilos and I only noticed when certain jeans wouldn't close properly -_- and then I became aware of my eating habits I noticed that my food portions had increased specially at dinner time. Since I left London in June I have no idea what's my weight situation also because my scale at home is damaged.

Okei enough rambling now, let's go to the point of this post. Since this last Summer I started watching some fitness videos on Youtube, initially "just for entertainment" since I'm a Youtube addict but after a few months of watching those videos I started thinking "Huumm... maybe... I should start... working out."
So since I can't afford to go to the gym, working out at home is the next best thing and next to that is to get tips right of the Internet for free.
I was going to do just one post about this subject but I decided to make more since I follow a few channels, this post would end up being extremely long. So today I will share two of my favourite Fitness channels on Youtube.


Musical Saturday #81

Hello everyone!
Yeah I missed my traditional Musical Friday post yesterday, my bad. I didn't programed my day very well. I woke up very late (like always) and later on in the day I was going to Akuma Kanji's house, so I just got up, tidy the house, showered, put my clothes on and makeup on and I was out of the house lol.
So I spent the rest of the day with her her sister and her boyfriend, we had dinner, saw a Harry Potter movie and so on.
So how was your Christmas? Mine was... just was. It was O.K. I guess. On Christmas Eve I was just with my parents and then on Christmas Day we had a family gathering lunch.
Other than that, regarding my Musical Friday posts, last year I did a massive post with all of my favourite songs that I posts during the year. This year I will do something different. I will post new songs/videos and then at the end of the post I will do a list of my favourite songs of the year 2012 that I posted. Is that alright?
This is not my last post of the year I have at least another post to go up and it's about my New Years Resolution, hopefully you guys will enjoy it.
Where are you going to spend the New Years Eve? For the first time in like 5 years or something I'm going to spend it with my parents, boring I know but there is no money for more. Or well, hopefully next year it will be better.
On that note I will leave you with some music. Take care everyone.

Conor Maynard - Animal feat. Wiley - New Single - I'm so happy that Conor decided to release Animal as a single because it's actually my favourite song out of his debut album.


My archived journey to Mozambique - Week #2


Hello everyone! I haven't done of these in a biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiig while. So a quick catch up, in December 2010 I went to Mozambique for a month mainly for a family member wedding and my uncle's 50th Birthday. I have already done one post about my journey about my first week [see here] so today I will talk about my second week, that it was a bit more calm than the first.
On the 13th I reckon I just stayed at home, I say this because I have no pictures of that day so probably nothing happened and we just stayed home recovering from the last 4 days. On the 14th of December I finally got to see my grandmother (my father's mom), the last time I saw her was back in 2001. I spent the afternoon with her catching up and gave her some photos of her three great-grandchildren (my brother's kids). It's so hard to have family members that live so far away :(.

 On the 15th we had to wake up reeaaalllyyy early like 5AM because my cousin Deny had to travel to South Africa to buy some stuff for his father's company. So me and my other cousin her husband and their kid joined our cousin Deny for the ride.
So we started our journey pretty early, unfortunately the weather was very crappy, cloudy and sort of rainy. It probably took us like one hour till we reached the country borders, so papers had to be filled in and the we continued our trip. As soon as you cross the borders you immediately notice that you are in a different country haha. The roads are better, the nature around us is denser (like more trees) and greener. Once we reached our destination, Nelspruit, we first went to one of those like department stores that sell like constructions stuff and what not and then we went to a shopping mall and ate some lunch and theeeen the best part of the day and the reason we went to South Africa was to go to Kruger National Park! If you don't know Kruger Park is basically like going to the Zoo but in a Safari way, basically you go with your one car and be face to face with the animals. We saw some elephants, impalas, baboons, hyenas, that place is huuuuge! It was so much fun and I hope I can go there one day again and take more pictures, I was quite unlucky because my battery started to get weak and I didn't take any backup batteries :/ baahhh.
After than we went home, once we reached the country's border again we had to go and show our passports and one thing that it didn't crossed my mind was that I had to pay for my Visa again :o! So another like €70 I payed, well actually my cousins' did >.<. Once we got home we were very hungry and very tired.


Merry Christmas

Ciaté swatches: Jelly Bean

EN: Hello everyone! Today's post is again about nail polish but this time with a bit of close up photos and a little review.
This Ciaté nail polish in the colour Jelly Bean, came with a magazine, I bought it while I was living in London early this year, it was the July issue of Marie Claire. The magazine alone cost £3.70 but it was a deal because the nail polish alone costs £9, so you get a magazine aaaaand a cool nail polish. There were 3 options, one was a bit beige pink, one lilac but I went for the hot pink because I needed a new one.
PT: Olá a todos! O post de hoje é outra vez sobre vernizes mas desta vez tenho algumas fotos de perto e uma pequena revisão.
Este verniz é da marca Ciaté e a cor é a Jelly Bean, veio com uma revista comprei quando ainda andava por Londres, veio com a edição de Julho da Marie Claire. A revista custa cerca de £3.70 Libras, sim é carote mas se forem a ver o verniz só por si custa £9 Libras, de maneiras queeeee não é assim tão mau, tens uma revista e um bom verniz. Havia 3 opções, um em tons de bege acho eu, outro em tons de lilás eu escolhi este rosa porque por acaso na altura precisava de um novo.



Musical Friday #79

EN: Hello everyone! Not much to say other than, remember that problem that I had with the store Loja Pó de Arroz, that I order a couple of things back in August and me and other costumer did not receive our stuff? Well finally CASE CLOSED! No I didn't get my stuff but at least they payed me back, so at least that. One day I will do a better post telling all the details of my case (and other girls) if you want.
I have two videos to upload to  my Youtube channel, what do you prefer to watch first, a video about E.L.F. or The Body Shop products?
Have a good weekend!

PT: Olá a todos! Não há muito para contar apenas, lembram-se daquele meu problema com a Loja Pó de Arroz, que eu encomendei alguns artigos em Agosto e eu mais alguns clientes não recebemos as nossas coisas? Bem CASO ENCERRADO! Não, não recebi as minhas coisas mas ao menos devolveram o meu dinheiro. Se quiserem um dia faço um post mais detalhado sobre o que aconteceu.
Uma pergunta tenho de fazer um upload de dois vídeos para o meu canal do Youtube, o que preferem ver primeiro uma review dos produtos da E.L.F. ou da The Body Shop?
Bom fim de semana!

Skye - Featherlight - Do you remember a group called Morcheeba? Well she was the singer of the group but then the group broke up and she's being doing a solo career, only today I discovered that she's the one that sings "Love Show", I guess song passes on Grey's Anatomy.

D.I.Y. #3 Revamp your jewelry - TOPSHOP Ear Cuff


EN: Hello everyone, today's post is a small D.I.Y. that I've done the other day.
When I was still living in London early this year I found this ear cuff earring in TOPSHOP for like half price or something and there were 3 options. All of them were gold but then the chain was either green, purple or pink so I took the green one. Passed some months forwards and that green bit started to annoy me. So the other day I grabbed it and decided to paint it all black!

PT: Olá a todos, o post de hoje é sobre um pequeno D.I.Y. que eu fiz no outro dia.
Quando ainda estava a viver em Londres no inicio deste ano eu encontrei este brinco/ear cuff na TOPSHOP por metade do preço acho eu e havia 3 opções. Todos eram de tom dourado mas depois a corrente ou era verde, roxo ou rosa, então eu escolhi a verde. Passado alguns meses e aquela parte verde começou-me a chatear. E então no outro dia peguei no brinco e decidi pintar todo de preto!


Musical Friday #78

Hello everyone! How are you?
Another week as passed and we are getting closer and closer to Christmas. 
This week I met up with an old friend that I haven't seen her since I arrived back to Portugal so we finally got to catch up and I ended up dying her hair lol.
Also I filmed 2 videos today, actually one of them I had to re-filmed because I forgot something the first time BAH. This weekend I should upload a new video on my Youtube channel, if you haven't subscribed feel free to do it [here].
Plus today is my dear friend Akuma Kanji's Birthday yyeeeeaaaaiiiiii. Luckily it didn't rained today, yesterday it was a full on non-stopping rainy day, that even a football match had to be reschedule the Stadium basically became a swimming pool area lol.
Oh you guys may or may not have noticed but on the right I created these little "word banners" with some of the websites where you can find me like Twitter, Bloglovin', Pinterest and Tumblr. What do you think about them? Ideally I would like to have something like Andy from Style Scrapbook has on her Blog, but I have NO idea how to do such thing.
Have a good weekend

Will.I.AM - Scream & Shout feat. Britney Spears - New Single - What can I say about this video and the music. Really like the music, it is the type of music that I would enjoy dancing in the clubs. The video is pretty wicked as well my only "disappointment" is that Britney is not dancing, like actually dancing like old school Britney would, I mean Madonna is 50's and she moves more than that. C'MON!


Dream House #8

EN: Aaaaaahhh how good is to dream, huh? Honestly if money was no object I don't know if I would buy one in the city or at the country more suburbia areas. Even though I grew up in a small peaceful town I love the city.  But then again if I was rich.... I would probably have more than house haha.
What do you guys prefer?

PT: Aaaaaahhh como é bom sonhar, hein? Sinceramente se dinheiro não fosse problema eu não sei se compraria uma casa na cidade ou no campo. Embora eu tenha crescido numa vila pequena meio campónia e pacata eu adoro a cidade. Mas também se eu fosse rica... provavelmente compraria mais do que uma casa haha.
O que é que vocês preferem?

EN: Yesterday I decided to play around at Polyvore and this is what happened. During Fall/Winter I'm a major sucker for Burgundy - or Oxblood something that I never heard before but this year is popping out everywhere - it's one of my favourite colours, next to black, grey, dark blue, yellow mustard and forest green for Fall/Winter. Do you guys like it?

PT: Ontem decidi brincar no Polyvore, e foi isto que aconteceu. Durante o Outono/Inverno eu amo o Bordeaux (cor-de-vinho) - ou Oxblood sei lá, algo que nunca ouvi na vida e agora está em todo lado - é uma das minhas cores favoritas juntamente com o preto, cinzento, azul escuro, amarelo mostarda e verde bem escuro para o Outono/Inverno. Gostaram?
