My first real post!

Hello everyone,

Welcome to my first real post – and by real I mean my first post related to what I’m really here for. Hope you like it! ūüėČ

Because I’m still getting the hang of taking pictures good enough to make an appearance in the blogosphere, this is still not a full look, but a few pictures of little details that made me feel special throughout the week.

Pandora charm

This is the charm my boyfriend gave me on my birthday. It is a Pandora charm meant for the bracelet, but I love to wear it in one of my necklaces (not Pandora). I had already worn this jumper, even though it is fairly new, so I felt like I needed something to give me that special feeling for the day, and the charm did the job. I didn’t even mind wearing my hair in a pony tail that day, something that usually makes me feel less confident.

Rimmel – 239 Your majesty

The name is Your Majesty and now I understand why. I absolutely love this colour for my nails and it gave a different touch to everything I wore. I still have it on, it lasts for quite a while!

I wonder if Queen Elizabeth II has one?

This was just a quick post to deflower my blog (good metaphor?). Incredible how little things make such a difference, right? Never stop doing the things that make you feel like a princess, it helps when a crappy day comes along.

Love,

Mariana

A little gossip for you

Besides fashion, why not gossip a little bit around here?

Lilly Allen fainted while shopping at Harrods – whaaat? She’s pregnant, alright, but maybe she should just stick to online shopping…

On to a healthier subject

The star of the Hunger Games, and the much anticipated (by me, at least) Silver Linings Playbook, Jennifer Lawrence, was spotted having a family holiday in Hawaii for thanksgiving – lucky woman!

Beautiful in blue: Jennifer Lawrence showed off her amazing shape in a bright blue bikini while on holiday in Hawaii

In this photo we can see her gorgeous figure, even though she referred to herself as being overweight in Hollywood standards.  

I think – and I’m sure I’m not alone in this one – she’s absolutely gorgeous. I love her personality, at least the way she presents herself in the press – which I hope is true. She’s simple, down to earth and ok with not being overly skinny. I really hope the industry doesn’t turn her in to someone else like it does with so many other artists. However, in this day and age, there are more role models who don’t succumb to the Hollywood stereotypes: Beyonc√©, Kat Dennings (2 Broke Girls), Zooey Deschanel, amongst many others.

Meet me

Hello to all my fellow bloggers,

My name is Mariana and I study something related to communication (course name’s too complicated, trust me), hoping to become a journalist someday. Serious journalism was always what I wanted since I was little, broadcasting to be exact, but things turned out slightly different so far.

I’m interested in fashion and beauty, so I thought I could gain some experience by blogging about it. I already follow some fashion blogs, mainly portuguese because I come from that place in the edge of Europe, and I love reading them and see the pictures they take. If they can do it, so can I? Positive thinking!

I already have a blog called all i see, focused on my ramblings, my adventures in photography and random stuff in general. My first blogging experience wasn’t great due to lack of time and, if I’m being honest, interest – I’m hoping this one will go better.

I just want to clarify one more thing¬† – even though I try to keep up to date with all the new trends in the fashion world, do not expect me to rush and buy something just because it’s in. I will, or hope to, keep true to myself and my style – not even sure if I have a characteristic one – but I do like to experiment new things every once in a while.

A bit about me now

Portuguese and proud, studying in England and loving it. Loves to travel, but destination check list isn’t long and a bit random actually: France, Tunisia, Sri Lanka and England (obvs). Likes to dream big, because if you don’t ask, you don’t get and not even the sky is the limit.

Sorry for being so long but I felt like I owed an explanation as to why I started a fashion blog. And here you have it!

Love,

Mariana
