They say that with Fashion you can free your mind and dress what you want, the way you want. I totally agree with this theory but, for some, this is a bit too out of reach. Reasons such as limited sizes and extremely high prices can get us a bit far from “freeing our minds and dressing what we want.

Colors are such a big part of my day. As well as a good pair of jeans! I can’t bear to not have happy shades popping around me. Flowers, home decor, makeup, anything goes. But what really brightens up my day is to be wearing colours on my outfit, without using too much time on it. Everything has to be practical and has to suit my busy days. Colors represent how I truly am, and I do feel that cold days call for vivid hues. It can help us to improve our perception of the winter mood. It does help me.
Here I share some tips on how to add bright hues to cold days. I am wearing my current favorite pair of jeans – I’d say they have been on everydy since I got it. ahahhaha. Check this out.

I tried some key products from the fancy brand By Terry on my skin and here is what I found.
“The holy grail”, “can’t live without it”, “skin brighter than my future”, “major glow”. I have read and heard so much about the skin care products from Ole Henriksen.

Na revista Stella desse mês eu tô numa página dupla falando de padrão de beleza e como a sociedade aqui na Noruega se relaciona com pessoas que, como eu, desafiam os olhos mais apegados a padrões. A Stella é uma das maiores revistas de comportamento feminino da Noruega com grande circulação nacional.
In this month’s Stella magazine I talk on “all types of beautiful” and how the society deals with beauty standards, inclusion, diversity and how it is to be a fat black blogger in a mostly white skinny country.

I’ve been looking forward to this post. Today we are officially launching the “Uperfektepiker” – the unperfect ladies in a free translation – is an online collab of 18 female profiles in Norway, with different backgrounds, that will talk to the new generations on the “perfect life”. But what is that anyway? Who are we? Read more.

There is nothing better than the feeling of giving an extra life to a gorgeous piece we bought to wear on parties. The same piece that creates a killing night outfit can come together really nicely and cool up that everyday tee and jeans look. This is how.
