I think I am now finished with the bleaching process of my hair. As I have shown in this post here, It has been a while I have been wanting this change and had an almost irresistible opportunity to make it happen, in a very reliable place that knew how to deal with my curls and used best quality products.

This time I did everything with Tonja Dahlen at Adam og Eva Strøget, in Oslo. She is known for her skills in coloring and to be bold as I am – actually Tonje is both great professional and person. She is flexible and creative, so, one good choice for anybody :-)

An small city in the northeast of Brazil can be a great source of energy and inspiration. Even more when this place is located at the south of Bahia state. Itacaré has been one of the nicest short vacations we have had latelly. I felt like I was in another dimension, with different time frame and environment. It may be because Bahia, specially the small villages, has a different timing of living, something like stress-free and “don’t worry, be happy“. Check out more pictures, travel tips and a colorful outfit.

In the first day of Pulp Fashion Week Paris the weather was quite mild. Mild as the early spring can be, right? :-) ….  So I found it to be the perfect opportunity to début a few pieces I was looking forward to wearing. The black bodysuit from a high end brazilian plus size swimwear brand, my chamois camel skirt and my very first denin shirt. All combined into a seventies look. Check out how cool it turned out.
