Hey, guys!! I’m enjoying my last days of vacation in Brazil and will fly back after my brother in law’s wedding this weekend. It’s summer and it’s so hot in here, but one thing I miss about Brazil is the sunset. You can actually appreciate the sun setting most days of the year. It’s breathtaking, it’s magical and special.

I’m not sure I’m ready to go back to our winter in London, but one thing’s for sure: I’m so ready for a haircut. And a good one. I’m always used to grow my hair long and then cut it short again, and I’ve been doing that for around eight years now. When I started the blog a year and a half ago my hair was already long, and I postponed the haircut I was eager to get in 2016. I believe it was a good decision because I was able to photograph a lot of looks and editorials with my long hair and I am happy with all the results. But I’m definitely not only my hair, and despite 9 out of 10 people saying I shouldn’t get my hair cut, I will (by the time I post this I will already have a new do!).

Some people hold on to their hair length, but that’s just not me. God only knows how long it takes me to manage my thick, curly, unruly and full of body hair that I’m so thankful for! I’m also very thankful for Brazilian hair treatments that make life easier most of the time, and that I usually get only when I’m here. The rest of the time is beloved hair dryer and flat iron, and all of my hair products that I’ve listed here and here (I confess there’s more, and I’ll share them soon!).

What better way to start the year than saying goodbye to my long hair? Hum… to be continued.

What I like about New Year’s beginning is that you can look back and see everything you’ve accomplished (and what you haven’t…) and things you want to do differently.  To me, there are new goals I’ve set, and there are some old goals that are still behind me, hoping I’ll give them proper attention.

Looking and My Boring Wardrobe’s year, there are lots of nice things I was able to share during 2016.

One of my favourite casual outfits was denim shirt and trainers, which I wore here, here, here and here. I wore this gorgeous lace body and lace dress, that was also my outfit for the Polo Day, where you could meet my family.

Other winners were this bodycon dress, this white & blue look and red turtleneck, not to mention the culottes & cropped top and bardot top trends. My look for London Fashion Week was also one of the most commented, and you can see more bits on my Instagram.

Stylewise I gave some nice tips on how to choose flats  and how to wear black in summer, how to make a simple outfit look great, how to edit Instagram photos and I gave 5 interesting facts about my personal style.

When it comes to beauty, my favourite products were this face oil, this concealer, and all these hair staples from Kerastase to L’Oreal.

I also gave amazing tips on the top 3 ingredients you want in your skincare routine, the benefits of vitamin C, how to start using Retinol, easy at home teeth whitening and how to get smooth skin in the shower with just 2 products.

Very recently I’ve started my YouTube Channel, and I’m sure you don’t want to miss my first video which is a fun behind the scenes of my photoshoot for Precis. Make sure you subscribe here to keep up with me.

Which ones were your favourites? I hope you had a great 2016 and wish 2017 is even better!!

NOW YOU CAN HAVE THE BAGS OF YOUR DREAMS

the bags of your dreams Uncloset

BAG: Louis Vuitton Anouchka PM (Uncloset)/ SHOES: Precis / SCARF: Valentino / PARFUM: Chanel n5 L’eau

 

I remember the day I made my dream of a Designer Bag come true: It was in Paris, 2009, in that big and beautiful Louis Vuitton Store at Champs Elysées. Yes, I went for the classic Speedy model in the light colour, one of the least expensive from the store, and with my initials engraved on it. I’ve carried it proudly for a long time and eventually ended up getting a few other designer bags after it, which I cherish with my heart. I don’t have a collection, nor a different designer bag to show up with at every event I attend to, but things can change. And I’ve teamed up with Uncloset to bring you the brilliant news that you can have the bags (yes, bagS) of your dreams today, and they are only a few clicks away.

Uncloset.com launched this 1st of December with the concept of offering you and me the opportunity of choosing Designer bags, getting them at our doorstep, and exchanging them when we want, for a monthly subscription. When you subscribe and follow the steps to confirm your details, you are presented with a range of Designer Bags, from GUCCI to CHANEL, CELINE, LOEWE, PRADA, VALENTINO, DIOR, YSL, MULBERRY and others. You can choose the one you like, and then swap them for a different style, when you have a party to attend, for example. You can select the style according to your personal preferences and occasion, and not repeat a bag if you don’t want to!  Does that sound tempting?

Well, even more tempting is the fact that if you subscribe until December 31st, 2016 at midnight, you can use the code POPMYCHERRY and get a super discount! So you have to rush! I’ve already found the bag that’s right for me and will be selecting a different one soon – stay stunned for my next choice!
