The Norwegian national day – 17th of may – is approaching and I can already see all the frenesi that surrounds Norwegians by this time of the year. Everybody wants to celebrate the constitution day in style, with friends and family. It is a whole day celebration, starting with the kid parade – which is the main highlight of the day – following by adults party where you drink, eat amazing food and mingle all day long. All you want is to have a beautiful dressed up outfit that allows you plenty of comfort and style.

For a Brazilian living in Oslo, this is an emotional day since we don’t see this patriotism on such a large scale in my country. It is really touching to see people waving the Norwegian flag with so much pride and love.

To make my outfit special and still affordable, I went to Lindex and picked two dresses that may inspire you, yes you, that are still in doubt on what to wear. Thankfully they have larger sizes at Lindex and cute dresses available. Here are my two choices:

This dress is amazingly beautiful, delicate and elegant. You can get it here:

I heard several times some people say they don’t wear white cause the colour make us look bigger. I mean, this is so not true. First of all, what makes us look bigger is the food we eat. Secondly, white is a great colour, especially for a daytime party dress. I love white and gold with some colourful small details.

You can find the dress here.

This bright red will light up the day. The dress has a plissè skirt that makes the flow light and sweet. Is fits all body types and looks good with a small detail like a metalic belt.

What about you? What would you wear in a day like this?

Been running around to cross all the hundreds thousands of to-dos on my list. I am still struggling with the balance between working for myself  and being a mum, wife, friend, and still, have some privacy or “me” time. Of course I will soon find out of it. Many women live like that and do not even have the chance to share with the father of the kid.

A good 2017, in eight steps

A good 2017, in eight steps

I was trying to remember the promises I made last year to see if I had met the goals and if I was going on the path of my biggest plans in life. I figured that this way it would be easier to start writing about my year. Some plans worked out well, but the truth is I do not remember well how things were before I “got pregnant” (and had the baby in three months, ahahahha).

October is a special month in fashion. It is when the industry supports the fight against breast cancer by donating part of the sales to research and development. Lindex launched the special Pink Collection and it is just great that the Finish house is contributing with fighting breast cancer with its own designs this year.

The pieces are a modern, feminine and strong conceptual range of carefully-selected garments and accessories in an exciting palette of colors with 10 % of the price being donated to cancer research.

We’re heading to the second month! Mikkel is now six weeks old and we are increasingly connected. I already understand him better and sometimes I can even predict some reactions or some of his needs. Of course, it would be easier if he spoke or had an instruction manual of sorts. K.K.K.K (nervous laugh).

The days are long as I have been always so busy – and that may be why time goes so fast. I get up from bed around 8am, change his diapers – I have learned that it has to be done before he eats so the position of legs raised when putting on new diapers to not cause discomfort and even vomiting. After breastfeeding I try to make him to sleep again by finishing his meals laying down on bed again. If it works and he finally sleeps again, I take a nap with him. It’s such a great feeling to be spooning with him. He feels safe and I feel the happiest mother.
