Getting ready

Português: Estava meio em baixo esta tarde e então para me animar e para poupar tempo, decidi fazer um pequeno ensaio de maquilhagem e cabelo para a noite de amanhã. Já tenho planos o que facilita a escolha da roupa, cabelo maquilhagem e por ai fora. Fiquei um bocado assustada porque quando estava a tirar a maquilhagem começou-me a arder a pele em volta do olho esquerdo (ainda só tirei de um olho. fiz maquilhagens diferentes em cada olho para escolher e deixei ficar a que gostei mais) mas como eu estava dizendo assustei-me porque fiquei com a pele a arder e vermelha quase em ferida, o que não seria um bom look de certeza, ou seja deixei-me de brincadeiras e contentei-me com o que já tinha. Amanhã tenho de ter cuidado com a maquilhagem. Em relação ao cabelo ainda estou meio indecisa. Amanhã se tiver tempo vou rapar mais os lados, isso vai ajudar a escolher melhor o penteado. Tenho uma teara que comprei para usar na noite de PDA há dois anos:

English: I was a bit down this afternoon so to brighten up and to save some time tomorrow, I decided to do a little makeup and hair testing for tomorrow night. I already have plans for New Year's Eve which facilitates the choice of clothes, hair, makeup and so on. I was a bit scared because when I was taking my make-up off the skin around my left eye started burning (i've only taken one eye make up of. I did a diferent makeup on each eye and left the one I liked more) but as I was saying it scared me because my skin was burning and red, which is not a good look for sure, so I gave up make up for the day and contented myself with what I already had. Tomorrow I have to be careful with makeup. Regarding my hair I'm still undecided. Tomorrow if I have time I want to shave my side (they've gotten quite big) this will help choose the best hairdo. Two years ago I bought a tiara that I wore on NYE that year:


A minha teara há 2 anos :)
My tiara 2 years ago :)

Desta vez não sei bem o que fazer com ela, mas queria muito usá-la (nunca mais a usei desde essa noite -.- )Tive a ver uns vídeos com tutoriais de cabelo e vi este que me interessou pela técnica. Eu não tenho um encaracolador de cabelo mas tenho um alisador e agora já sei como encaracolar com um alisador. Irónico ham? Podem ver o tutorial aqui.
Bem meus queridos, boa noite e FELIZ PASSAGEM DE ANO!!
Beijinhos,
LVB

This time I don't know what to do with it, but I want to use it (never used it since that night -.-) I was wathching some tutorial videos and saw one with a really interesting technique. I don't have a curling iron but I have a straightener and now I know how to curl with a straightener. Ironic huh? You can see the tutorial here.
Well my dears, good night and HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Style Steal (Ashlee Simpson-Wentz)

Português: Nunca é fácil encontrar alternativas baratas para as roupas das celebridades, mas desta vez tenho de admitir que foi complicado, mesmo complicado encontrar alternativas iguais ou pelo menos parecidas às da Ashlee. No entanto penso que tenha conseguido encontrar algumas coisinhas giras e em conta.

English: It's never easy do find cheap alternatives for celeb clothes, but this time it was specially dificult to find similar things. Although in the end I found some good pieces that look something like Ashlee's.

H&M +/- 7€



Topshop +/- 30€

Eu sei que os oculos da Ashlee são normalmente pretos (e ambos este exemplares existem em preto) mas eu gosto tanto deste padrão : )

I know that she normally wears black sunglasses (and they do have both these in black) but I love this turtle shell print :)

H&M +/- 5€


Mango 7,95€

Mango 12,95€

Mango 25€

Topshop +/- 40€

Lipsy +/- 18€


Zara 49,95€

Nine West +/- 38€

Zara 25,95€

Zara 35,95€

Espero que gostem e um resto de um óptimo dia : )

I hope you've enjoyed my choices : )

O que fazer ao cabelo na Noite de Ano Novo? / What to do with your hair on New Year's Eve? (cabelo curto/short hair)

Português: Bem, a pedido de muitas famílias vou dar algumas sugestões para cabelos curtos. Podem ver a versão para cabelos compridos aqui.

Para cabelos curtos as hipóteses são limitadas, mas para tornar-los mais festivos podemos sempre brincar com todo tipo de acessórios. Desde uns ganchinhos até uma bandulete. Os acessórios que mostro aqui obviamente servem para que tem o cabelo comprido também : ) o importante é divertirem-se ao máximo com o penteado.

English: I forgot to mention some short hair ideas. Wich was a big fail because my best friend recently cut her hair and was the first to tell me off : ) You can see my post on long hair here.

For short hair there aren't as many options but you still can make them festive by adding some cool accessories. Obviously the accessories shown here can be used in long hair. The important thing is that you have fun with your hair.

Ondas apertadas
Tight waves

Ondas em forma de S
S shaped waves


Cabelo natural com uns jeitos ligeiros
Beachy hair with some very soft waves
 Alguns acessorios / Some accessories: All from Accessorize.







Se quiserem deixar o cabelo liso (se o tiverem naturalmente liso) ou esticá-lo podem conseguir um resultado bonito também. Depende muito do comprimento do cabelo.

If you want to leave your hair straight (either if it is normaly straight of if you flat iron it) that might be a good option for you. Everything depends on the length of your short hair.

O que fazer ao cabelo na Noite de Ano Novo? / What to do with your hair on New Year's Eve?

Português: Tenho estado a pensar no que vou fazer com o cabelo na Noite de Ano Novo. Ainda não sei bem o que vou vestir...mas já ando com uma ideias e não queria deixar o cabelo para a ultima hora. E é por isso que decidi fazer este post. Pensei que da mesma maneira que eu estou indecisa, vocês também podiam estar. Todas as sugestões que apresento aqui são coisas que facilmente podemos fazer em casa sem gastar nem muito tempo e a cima de tudo sem gastar muito dinheiro. Portanto espero que isto vos ajude e que em conjunto com o post a cerca do que vestir (que podem ver aqui) se sintam inspiradas para criarem um look de passagem de ano que vos faça sentir bem convosco próprias! Com isto dito passemos então ao que interessa : )

English: I've been thinking about what I'm going to do with my hair on New Year's Eve. I'm not certain of what I'm going to wear yet...but I've got some ideas and I don't want to leave my hair for the last minute. And that's why I decided to do this post. I thought that you could also be having some problems with what hair to do and that this way we could help each other.  All of the proposals I have here are easy to do and above all they are cheap. So I hope that this helps you and that together with the last post (wich you can see here) you'll feel inspired too create your one New Year's Eve look. A look that will make you feel wonderful and confortable. So with this said lets go on to the interesting stuff : )


Ondas suaves
Soft waves


Cabelo encaracolado
Bold curls


Cabelo casualmente apanhado com um acessório de cabelo
Casual up do with hair accessory

 
Apanhado texturado no topo da cabeça
Textured top knot
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-RJZO0y0Zu8
 O link em cima ensina a fazer o ultimo penteado depois é só soltar mais uns cabelinhos curtos se quiserem dar uma ar mais descontraído. Eu gosto muito deste penteado, vamos ver se combinará com o que dicidir vestir : )

The link above show's you how to do the top not in a very easy way. If you want to add some texture just pull a few strands of hair or/and loosen the hair to get Hillary Duff's look. I like this look a lot and I hope it goes with what i choose to wear.

Dress up for the special night

Português: Bom dia! Para começarmos bem o dia tenho para vocês algumas sugestões para a noite de ano novo. Já sabem o que vão fazer? Eu ainda não sei. Mas isso não me impede de idealizar o que vou vestir. Pelo menos divirto-me. De qualquer maneira vou vesti-me a rigor, não quero saber se vou só comer frango assado do take away (que diga-se de passagem, não é nada mau!).
Tentei fazer looks para todos os gostos e para todas as ocasiões, desde as mais formais, às mais casuais.

English: Good morning! I have some suggestions for New Year's Eve. Do you know what you're doing that night? I still don't know. But that does not prevent me from thinking about what I'm wearing. At least I have fun doing it. Either way I'll dress up, even if all I do is eat take-away chicken (not bad!). I tried to put together looks for all tastes and all occasions, from the most formal to the most casual.


Começando pelos vestidos / Starting with the dresses:



E acabando nos conjuntos de calças/leggings / And finishing with the jeans and leggings:



Português: Eu gosto particularmente deste ultimo e do terceiro vestido. Espero que vos tenha ajudado e que se sintam inspiradas para criarem o vosso próprio looks de noite de passagem de ano. E não se esqueçam que a noite de 31 de Dezembro é uma noite longa e agitada por tradição e o que interessa relativamente ao que têm vestido é que se sintam confortáveis e bonitas!
Bom resto de dia!

Beijinhos,
LVB

English: I particularly like this last look and the third dress look. I hope that I've helped and you feel inspired to create your own looks for New Year's Eve. And do not forget that the night of Dec. 31st is tradicionaly a long and hectic one and the most important thing is that you feel comfortable and beautiful in what you're wearing! Have a nice day!

Love xx

Famosos à Segunda / Celeb Monday (Ashlee Simpson-Wentz) (à terça ups/more like Tuesday ups)

Português: Ashlee Simpson-Wentz com apenas 26 anos tem um estilo com eu já me consigo identificar, muito simples mas trendy. Com um toque punk-rock mesmo na medida certa. Se calhar um pouco preto de mais para mim...mas não deixa de ser um estilo que eu gosto bastante. Na rua a Ashlee é "apanhada" a usar ganga, tanto em calções com em calças, t-shirts largas e fluídas e normalmente de sandálias ou sabrinas, muito confortável. Como imagem de marca é de salientar os chapéus e os óculos de sol.

English: Ashlee Simpson-Wentz with only 26 years was a style I can relate to, very simple but trendy. With a touch of punk-rock in just the right places. Maybe a little more black then I would fancy ... but it's still a style that I enjoy a lot. In the street Ashlee is "caught" using denim, both in shorts and in pants, baggy and flowy t-shirts, and normally sandals or ballet flats, very comfortable. Her image is complete with hats and sunglasses.



Português: Em situações mais formais ela não fica para trás e apresenta-se sempre muito elegante e quase sem esforço, pelo menos é o que parece. Adoro o que ela tem vestido na ultima foto!

English: In formal occasions she doesn't stay behind and always looks very elegant in an efortless way. At least that's what it looks like. I love what she's wearing in the last picture.




Português: Outra coisa que é muito caracteristica da Ashlee é que ela já teve todas as cores de cabelo e todos os cortes possíveis. O mais recente é este pixie loiro que podemos ver nas ultimas duas fotos.

English: Another thing that's caracteristic of Ashlee Simpson is that she's had all hair colours and hair curts you can think of. The most recent one is this blond pixie cut that you can see in the last two pics.


All the pictures were taken from people.com.

Loira eu? / Blond me?



Português: OMD ontem e hoje foram 2 dias bem atribulados. Acho que nem contado acreditam...mas em dois dias já tive 3 cores de cabelo e não posso dizer que tenham sido bonitas... Bem mas agora depois de muito descolorante e muita tinta estou satisfeita! Finalmente! E lembrei-me de nunca mais pintar o cabelo de loiro sim? xD
Em relação ao look, é uma coisa muito simples, so para ir fazer umas coisitas à cidade! Ah e nem sabem hoje quase que roubei uma luva de banho. Ahaha! Sai da Casa com aquilo na mão e nem paguei, quando ia a meio da rua é que vi o que tinha feito. Voltei lá a correr e a senho só me disse: Estava a ser filmada. OMD ahaha que medo! Também só custou 99cent!
Bom resto de dia!

Beijinhos
LVB

English: OMG the last two days have been so hectic. In two days I've had three hair colors and I can not say they were nice... Anyway now after lots of bleaching and hair dye I'm finally happy! And please remind me to never dye my hair blond again! xD
Moving on to the look, it's very simple, just running some errands in town! Oh and you won't belive what I did today! I almost stole a bath mitt. Ahaha! I left the shop with it in my hand and didn't pay. Only when I was half way down the street I realized what I had done. I ran back there and the only thing the lady said was: You were being filmed. OMG ahaha what fear! It was only 99cent!
Have a nice day and remember not to leave the shop without paying, they are watching you!

Best Dressed of 2010 Vogue As Melhor Vestidas de 2010

Português: Apresento-vos as 20 melhores vestidas de 2010 segundo a British Vogue.


English: A present to you the 20 British Vogue bets dressed of 2010.


Alexa Chung


“She’s got a real appetite for fashion and loves wearing what’s of the moment in the moment and always puts her geek chic spin on her designer favourites, from Miu Miu to Chanel.” – Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director.

Angelina Jolie




“Angelina Jolie has such an old Hollywood glamour about her, she often chooses longer lengths with simple empire lines to create a sleek yet eye-catching effect, and thigh-splitting skirts to show off those amazing legs. She is the ultimate in looking powerfully sexy. And it has been nice to see her wearing more colour this year.” - Miranda Almond, Vogue fashion editor.

Carey Mulligan




“What a refreshing change on the red carpet to see someone who wears such distinct designers, like Vionnet, Prada and Peter Pilotto, and makes them her own.” – Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director.


Edie Campbell




“She’s not a label queen. She wears clothes that you’re not sure where they came from and puts her individual stamp on what she’s wearing.” – Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director.

Elisa Sednaoui
“Polished perfection, in Converse, vintage Levi’s, black tanks and cashmere, Sednaoui never strays far from classic pieces in a neutral palette - all the better to showcase her shiny mane, killer curves, and thoroughbred legs.” - Jo Ellison, Vogue features director.


Emma Watson




“Her new short hair has freshened up her look from the Harry Potter image, the cute girl in a prom dress. Now she looks like she means business; this new elfin look has given her some serious red carpet cred.” – Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director.

Freja Beha Erichsen




“Freja is the ultimate in boy/girl cool. She’s so down-played but everything she wears is exquisite. Every girl wants to look like Freja.” – Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director.

Josephine de la Baume


“De la Baume combines her native French elegance with British experimentalism to create her singular style. By day, she’s quite the Parisian princess, in straight-cut trousers, tailored jackets, riding boots. By night, she might alternate a romper suit, full-length chiffon frock, flame-red hair or corkscrew curls. However she plays it, she always pulls it off; proof positive that cutting edge can also be tres chic.” - Jo Ellison, Vogue features director.



Julia Restoin-Roitfeld




“With an unquestionable style pedigree, Julia brings knowing sparkle to the simplest of cool girl staples - be it the biker jacket, skater skirt or LBD. She has also become a keen ambassador British design talent, wearing Christopher Kane and Emilio de la Morena - a winning entente cordiale!” – Emma Elwick-Bates, Vogue market editor.

Kate Moss




“It’s Kate’s obvious love of clothes that makes her so stylish. It’s all in her mix – vintage with high fashion. And she’s never a victim.” – Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director.



Kate Winslet




“I think newly single Kate has mastered the art of red carpet dressing. She sticks to bold colours and body-skimming shapes. She does the Oscar-winning starlet look very well.” – Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director.

Keira Knightley




“Effortlessly English. She has a dream of a face and figure and she’s not at all vain. It’s incredible, she never looks in the mirror.” – Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director.



Lady Gaga




“Like performance dressers Madonna and Grace Jones before her, people are always interested to see what Gaga will put on next, whether it’s a dress made of steak, a Philip Treacy hat or a McQueen masterpiece.” – Sarah Harris, Vogue fashion features writer.

Lara Stone




“Lara has such great style, both on and off duty. Whether it’s in a simple Calvin Klein shift dress or jeans and a Rick Owens jacket, she always looks cool and modern. She doesn’t need to exaggerate herself. – Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director.



Michelle Obama


“What I like about Michelle Obama’s clothes is what I like about her as a person - she’s not afraid to be experimental and bold, just like her politics.” – Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director.


Michelle Williams


“Michelle Williams has nailed the pretty yet demure look with a touch of New York cool. She always dresses in a way that emphasises her petite frame and English rose colouring and is not a slave to the latest trend.” – Miranda Almond, Vogue fashion editor.


Olivia Palermo




“She’s really nailed that polished Upper East Side style that’s young and modern and contemporary. And she loves the high street, especially Topshop and Zara, but she has a way of making high street pieces look expensive with the way that she styles them.” – Sarah Harris, Vogue fashion features writer.



Rosie Huntington-Whiteley


“She does red carpet glamour so well, always sexy and glossy. Off duty, she wears the model uniform of jeans, leather jacket and high heeled boots with minimal daytime make-up.” – Kate Phelan, Vogue fashion director.

Samantha Cameron


“She’s such a great ambassador for British fashion, having worn Erdem on the Tory campaign trail and Osman at the British Fashion Awards. She’s really clever at knowing what shapes suit her and she made maternity dressing look effortless.” - Sarah Harris, Vogue fashion features writer.

Victoria Beckham

“I think she’s really found her style now. It’s a simple, pared-down formula and it works for her” – Lucinda Chambers, Vogue fashion director.
