It's sunday, let's dress up!

Bom dia! Apesar de ser domingo, nem sempre nos apetece vestir uma roupa casual, por vezes sentimo-nos (e bem!) com vontade de estar bem, en vogue! ;) Hoje é um daqueles dias e por isso deixo-vos aqui algumas inspirações!
Vistam-se, saiam de casa, passeiem com alguém, de preferência visitem algo novo, vão a um café novo, ou simplesmente, um quente e saboroso capucino no Nicola's Gourmet! 


Good morning! Despite being Sunday, we do not always feel like wearing a casual outfit, sometimes we feel (and well!) willing to be fine, en vogue! ;) Today is one of those days and so I leave you here some inspiration!
Dress up, leave home, go for a walk with someone, preferably visit a new place, go to a new coffee, or simply a hot and tasty capucino in Nicola's Gourmet!


Bonjour! Malgré étant un dimanche, nous n'avons pas toujours envie de porter une tenue décontractée, nous nous sentons parfois (et bien!) prêt à être bien, très en vogue! ;)Aujourd'hui, c'est un de ces jours et donc je vous laisse ici un peu d'inspiration!
Dress up, quitter la maison, partir en randonnée avec quelqu'un, de préférence quelque chose de nouveau pour visiter, aller à un nouveau café, ou tout simplement un capucinochaude et savoureuse dans Gourmet Nicola!

Another great TEDxCoimbraSalon about education!

Ontem, no auditório da Associação Académica de Coimbra realizou-se mais um TEDxCoimbraSalon, excelente momento de apresentação de ideias, testemunhos, debate e discussão de pontos de vista, conceitos, entendimentos. Do diálogo nascem brilhantes ideias e caminhos a serem percorridos.
Foi um evento muito útil e interessante, onde encontrei ideias e entendimentos que já tenho há muito mas que alarguei mais o modo de os pensar e concretizar.
Parabéns à Associação Pensamento Voador - Associação para Promoção de Ideias, por mais uma excelente iniciativa, rumo ao TEDx Coimbra 2012, em Outubro.
Em breve deixo aqui as fotos do evento!


A educação é essencial para o desenvolvimento pessoal, cria as bases da empregabilidade e promove tanto o progresso económico, como social.
No entanto, não basta a focalização apenas na educação básica.
A empregabilidade deve ser promovida através de uma holística de educação e treino, aumentando assim tanto a participação como a relevância no mercado de trabalho de uma educação mais técnica.
Perceber como a educação é um fator potenciador da melhoria da empregabilidade é o objectivo deste TEDxCoimbraSalon

Agradecemos a todos os que se inscreveram!

However, it is not enough to focus only on basic education.

Understand how education is a leverage factor of improving employability is the aim of this TEDxCoimbraSalon

We are grateful to all those who signed up!

A body shimmer made by you: learn how!

I really liked this post because is so clear and such a good advice : to look good, we need to be healthy and for that is very important that our skin is looking well and fine! :)


photos + post by amy nadine

" Temperatures are rising and prom, formals + weddings are just around the corner! Which means our skin needs a little help after a long dry winter! After giving your body a good buff with our D.I.Y. brown sugar scrub, add a little shimmer to your lotion to get that perfect glow (without having to spend any money!). Here’s what I made last week in 3 easy steps to use on my clients on talk shows (Brittany Snow with her gorgeous new red hair on her visit to Conan, stunning + raven-haired Krysten Ritter on her visits to bothJimmy Kimmel and Conan and our lovely Lauren Conrad on her visit to Chelsea Lately last night!) that I thought you might like too:
Your favorite lotion (we’re obsessed with Korres Body Butter in Jasmine because it’s natural and smells divine but any lotion that you love will work)
Small jar of gold loose mica mineral pigment (I like Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Loose Colour Concentrate in Clove for Fair to Medium skin tones, or Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics in Acacia or Mimosa for Tan to Dark skin tones). You can also crush up an old gold or pearl pressed eyeshadow to make it loose.
A mixing bowl or tumbler, chopstick + spoon
An empty travel-sized jar or bottle
1. Combine 4 parts lotion with ½ teaspoon gold shimmer (or measure by sprinkling the shimmer until desired shade is achieved).
2. Stir with chopstick until color is consistent (isn’t it gorgeous?!) then direct it towards one side for scooping.
3. Spoon out your creation and transfer it into the jar.
You can do this with coconut oil, tanning oils and many sunscreens. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll start wanting to try different shades of illuminating loose powders and add them to everything! Please share any of your ideas + potions too! "

Coachella 2012: Best dressed stars

Trends at Coachella - really cool inspiration for my summer festivals :)

"" After two consecutive weekends, the Coachella music festival came to a close April 22, and for fashionistas who couldn’t make the California event Instagram provided the perfect source for discovering the latest festival trends. Check out the sartorial choices of stars including Dita Von Teese and Rihanna here.
Before setting off for Coachella burlesque star Dita Von Teesetook to Twitter to joke that the first weekend had been a “dress rehearsal” for fashionistas, adding that she was “going deep” into her closet to come up with suitable looks. Her preparation paid off as the cherry print jumpsuit and retro shades she sported placed her among some of this weekend’s best dressed.
Photographed partying with Von Teese was television star Kelly Osbourne, who took to her Instagram to share a snap of her new lavender hairdo. Musicians Katy Perry and Azealia Banks also favored purple locks for this year’s Coachella.
Socialite Paris Hilton was another celebrity to embrace colored locks at this year’s Coachella, opting for bright pink streaks to match her neon fingerless gloves and pink bag.
Model-turned-actress Rosie Huntington Whiteley also scored style points, snubbing the classic vest top by teaming her denim cutoffs with a billowing white blouse. The star shared a snap of herself and British celebrity stylist Cher Coulter.
Another Brit showing of her style credentials at Coachella was Emma Watson, who attended the Mulberry party in an animal print playsuit, cardigan and floppy hat.
Emma Roberts shared an array of her outfits on Instagram, including this one with friend Christy Cham, in which the actress sports a trilby hat and tribal print pants.
Rihanna favored the classic festival staple of denim cutoffs, which she wore with a bustier cropped top and sneakers.
Reality star Lauren Conrad was the epitome of festival chic in her round vintage style glasses from The Row teamed with tousled waves and a straw hat.  "

"We Are Young" (feat. Janelle Monáe)

Give me a second I,
I need to get my story straight
My friends are in the bathroom getting higher than the Empire State
My lover she’s waiting for me just across the bar
My seat’s been taken by some sunglasses asking bout a scar, and
I know I gave it to you months ago
I know you’re trying to forget
But between the drinks and subtle things
The holes in my apologies, you know
I’m trying hard to take it back
So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home

We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Now I know that I’m not
All that you got
I guess that I, I just thought
Maybe we could find new ways to fall apart
But our friends are back
So let’s raise a toast
‘Cause I found someone to carry me home

We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Carry me home tonight (Nananananana)
Just carry me home tonight (Nananananana)

The world is on my side
I have no reason to run
So will someone come and carry me home tonight
The angels never arrived
But I can hear the choir
So will someone come and carry me home

We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

We are young
So let’s set the world on fire
We can burn brighter than the sun

So if by the time the bar closes
And you feel like falling down
I’ll carry you home tonight

Tips to aply foundation

"Every year, I like to try out a new foundation application technique, but this technique was something I discovered by accident. I went on a quick trip to NY and forgot my foundation brush, so I decided to use my blush brush and surprisingly it worked better than I thought! I find myself applying foundation faster with this technique."
