Hey guys! I am so happy with my new hair colour. Since my hair is the one main accessory I carry all the time with me, it is also a big topic here on le blog. So let me tell you how it happened and show you my current fav makeup look that I do, using the same products in different ways, because, you know, lipstick is not just a lipstick, right?
Feminism is far beyond a t-shirt. But what does it influence your everyday life? How can you be feminist? Surely that does not mean to grow hair under your arms – although you can if you want. The freedom of making choices without being judged and to have access to opportunities, equality and respect are the main points of feminism. But how does it affect or everyday life? Read more here:
What to wear for a special celebration during day time? More than often I get messages asking for ideas for a party during the day. But now the doubt is mine so I picked two dresses that I find totally appropriate for the Norwegian National day. They can be styled in different ways, one of them is more statement and the other is more simple, going really well with accessories and colours. Check this out.
The opening of Zizzi in Stovner was crazy success. So many people together. I was there showing how to style my favorite pieces from the collection (I was super proud and happy). I got pictures and more info here. Read more.
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.
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?

I must confess I can get a little too excited when I see cool plus size pieces available in high street brands. It must be because for so long I have felt neglected by so many brands. For countless times I have felt like there was something wrong with me because I wanted to wear a certain piece but they did not have my size. It still happens every now and then.
But the truth is nowadays there is much more availability for large sizes in high street fashion. It is still far from the ideal – and by “ideal” I mean cool, affordable designs, sustainable fashion and opportunities for all. But I got to say I love to see Lindex, for instance, providing fashion in more sizes, for a reasonable price and quality.
When I saw the colour of this dress I was just eager to check if my size was there. Guess what? They had my XL and it went up to XX. I tried it on and voilà, it had to be mine.
After I took the pictures I realised that maybe not everybody would like the shape because it is a bit loose and it may make me look a bit bigger. But girl, come on, what makes us look big is food not clothes ahhahahahaha.
But then again, isn’t that another type of beauty standard? Why should plus size ladies only wear curves flattering clothes? I can easily say that somehow I am also affected by this type of standard. I love myself a bodycon piece that shows the would how beautiful my body is. But most of all, I am a fan of wearing what I like, how I like, when I like. And this dress I love.
Dress and jacket from Lindex. Earrings were custom made for me in Brazil. Hermes bracelet, alliances and Bjørg rings.
From the 1st of may, next Monday, you can buy Zizzi online in Norway. How exciting?
The norwegian online shop is launching with a lot of new styles that you do not have to wait until they hit the physical stores. And here you see my favorite pieces and get a voucher for an exclusive discount. (more…)
I have been to Asos just now and saw amazing pieces with a very very good price. They are (or just became) must haves for a versatile and timeless stylish wardrobe.
We can wear pretty much anything and that’s a statement that more than often I write here.
But it ain’t all the time that we have inspiration or encouragement to show more skin and feel sexy, trendy, total baddie 😉
You know the drill. Dress up, kill it, repeat. I mean, that’s what we queens aim for whenever we want to feel gorgeous and beautifully fierce.
Lately, I have been feeling so loaded, so much to do and so little time. A mum’s life is slightly more challenging than I expected and I strive to be a good mother, to keep my word up to date and to remember being a woman, to feel sexy and like super fierce. If you got kids yourself you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, now you do.
The summer issue of the magazine “The Curvy” is out now! In this number, you will find the season’s hottest trends and special content I made just for the magazine.
Media is the major responsible for raising awareness of the importance of a diversity-friendly society. The fact that men outnumber women two to one on television, that women disappear almost completely after the age of 50 are an unpleasant reality that has been changing slowly.
I can tell from my own experience that it is not so easy to be so colorful when most people around wear mostly black and grey. But here I have three pretty looks that may inspire your inner colourful self to bright lighter in this spring.
I love layering in my outfits. Not only they are a great way of keeping warm, but they are one of a hell cool style trick. It shifts the game and makes the look so modern. It takes no effort and looks super fun. Would you try?
There is a whole new light over the corset in this season. If the piece is usually related to training, burlesque or a bit of a tacky spot to it, right now is time to change all you know about corsets and prepare to include the item in your priorities list.
