Heyyy! So, the Teen Choice Awards happened a couple nights ago (timezones) so I figured I should talk about this and that, even though I didn’t bother watching it. I’ve never really cared much about the TCAs… for some reason I don’t really trust the results, some times it seems like it’s all a matter […]
I MOVED HERE !
Hey there and Merry Christmas!
Winter break if finally here! It’s kinda crazy to think this year is almost over, everything went by so fast.. but what’s better to celebrate the holidays than a girls’ hangout?
Last Friday me, Bruna, Joana and Rita caught the train to Lisbon’s downtown to spend some time together and see the christmas street decor (and obviously to shop). I took the chance to vlog a little for ThatsBeautyInsider!
I always love to go to Lisbon’s downtown because it’s one of the most beautiful cities in Portugal, it’s really different from where I live (all though it’s pretty close). The weather is amazing and there’s always somewhere new to visit.
This time we started by visiting the fashion and design museum (free entrance!!) which we had been to before, but they always have new exhibitions so we visited it again. This time their main exhibition was about classic ballet fashion, it was beautiful!
After that we went to Terreiro do Paço to take some photos by the river and see some more Christmas decor.
We also visited Chiado and obviously passed by Starbucks to get a warm drink hahah :)
Fun fact… when we were on our way back to the train station we took an alternative route where I found a store I had no idea we had in Portugal, Benefit! I was shocked to be honest! Benefit is one of my favorite makeup brands but I thought the only way of buying their products was by ordering online. Guess not! It’ll obviously be my must-stop store next time I visit downtown :D
And that was the best (and honestly all I did) this weekend hahaha
I’m really low on winter break activities, but I don’t want to be at home the whole time… any suggestions?
Jariana is over again? Things got a little suspicious after Ariana’s grandfather sadly passed away the past 23rd of July. Aparantly everyone she loves flew to Florida to give her the support she needed except for Jai who I assume has been really busy lately because of the new Janoskians “Got Cake?” Tour and their movie, but for Ariana that wasn’t justifying as she posted this on her twitter not long after:
And that was the last hint we got that Jariana was over that wasn’t really clarifying untill just a couple days ago during the ceremony of the MTV VMAs. If you guys don’t know what I’m talking about cos you didnt get to watch them live don’t worry cos I was spending sometime over at my grandma’s town (that is literally in the middle of nowhere without wifi or more than 9 channels) and I only found out about it today. Aparantely the backstage cameras caught Ari and her new love holding hands and all giggly. Curious to find out who? Well sit down so you don’t fall because that almost happened to me. Any guesses? Well try to think of someone she has been collabing with a lot lately and that has been one of her biggest supports lately. Still nothing? I understand I’ll just reveal it now and end your misery, here’s the ultimate proof:
Yeeeep that’s it, Ariana holding hands with Big Sean in the backstage of the VMAs. In my eyes, it totally dropped like a bomb in the fandom, I did NOT see that coming. To be honest I was still slightly hoping Jariana wasn’t over as they are my OTP but at the same time, Jai doesn’t seem to be taking this as bad as the last time since he had a major break down last time they broke up, which makes this even more suspicious. Maybe Jai isn’t into Ariana as he was before? I don’t know to me he always seemed to be the one who put more effort into the relationship and Ariana was the one who decided to end things this time. Do you guys think her relationship with Big Sean is just a marketing strategy? Well we can expect anything from Scooter Braun (her manager) since her relationship with Nathan Sykes was almost obviously fake, but maybe this time is different. We never know, our idols never cease to surprise us.
What is your opinion on this? Do you think there’s still hope for Ariana, or do you ship Ari and Big Sean hardcore already? Let me know in the comments below what you think about this!
I know this is not my usual kind of post but this was needing a little a update and what’s better than a juicy post? Hahahah xxx

Want a Spring-to-Summer look on your nails that’s easy to make? All you need is two nail polishes, one with a spring shade and the other one a little more fancy and just push your imagination!
Here I picked lilac (330) by KIKO (€2,99) and Very Me Secrets in Gold Sparkle by Oriflame (€4,99). These are my favorite brands for polish, they always have amazing colors and the polish is really good quality! The look I created with these polishes is very simple and not very original hahah I guess I’m not an expert on manicure but there are soo many other effects you can make to express your feels for this warm spring weather! :)
we all love spring but.. Who’s excited for summer? ;)
Heyaaaa! Today was so different from yesterday, I was actually feeling happy for no reason, who doesn’t love that feeling? It was probably because I didn’t went to Math hahah yeah I had a ophthalmology consultation or whatever it’s called … Continue reading
Hope everyone had nice Monday :) mine was lame as fuck, it started terribly with that monthly unpredictable visitor that made me not being able to do PE. Math class was kinda different today, we had this activity going on at the Library so class was spent there. After a bunch of other lame classes, thank goodness it was lunch time!
We had lasagna for lunch omg ❤️ We spent the whole afternoon at Joana’s so we could finish this Geography project we’ve been dragging forever about Comic Relief (we’re obviously mentioning One Direction and Little Mix hahah)
We also had a hysterical moment when we finally watched “Real Girls Eat Cake” music video by The Janoskians! Let me just tell you, it made my day 62823737 times better omg ❤️ If you haven’t watched it yet, click here ! And if you don’t know who The Janoskians are, you’ve been REALLY missing out!
OMG finally the weekend
This week has been so tiring, so many group projects, so many tests, homeworks GEEZ and the math extra classes seemed to last forever, it was yesterday but I barely remember a word my tutor said hahaha
The weekend always makes you feel so relaxed, even if you have to wake up early like I had today. And it gets better now that the weather is so nice! Speaking of weather, on my birthday I got soo many nice stuff that I really wanted to show you but.. no camera or laptop ugh I hate this.
When I got home yesterday I was soo happy when mom said we were going to the mall to have dinner because I really wasn’t feeling like staying at home on a Friday night. Yes I wanted to relax, but having dinner out it’s always good because it changes your routine!
I also bought a black sleeveless cropped top on Pull & Bear that I’ll show you on an OOTD post as soon as I can!
How has your weekend been going so far?
Today I wanted to talk about something I’ve mentioned before: the “After” fanfiction. I just want to say that if you’re not the type of reading teen drama, you won’t find this post interesting and you may want to ignore it xD
Like all the fanfictions, After is based on something that exists in real life. Something that may have helped it growing more and more popular is the fact that it’s based on One Direction, but wait! DON’T STOP READING YET! This fanfiction stands out from the others because the boys are not their normal, famous, regular selves, they are completly different people. Just to give you some notion, 3 of them are punk rock guys that go to frat house’s parties every weekend. If you still you won’t like it just because you’re not into One Direction, I want to let you know that A LARGE PORTION of the readers aren’t in the One Direction fandom, but they still love this story.
The book “After” (on wattpad) is the beginning of everything. It starts with Tessa, Tessa Young, one of the main characters. Tessa is an 18 year old girl, about to start college life. She’s probably the most responsible and organized person you’ll ever hear of in your entire life! Things start getting interesting right in the moment she gets in her new dorm. Tess has no idea of how her life changes from the moment she meets her roommate and her friends. Everything she had planned for the 3 years she would spend on college vanish from the moment she meets a boy named Harry “who shatters her plans”.
Ok so I know I was very brief on the first book, but the story’s resume on the homepage doesn’t say more. Yea there are things it wouldn’t hurt to tell you but it’s a lot more fun to find them out for yourself.
“After 2” is obviously the sequel of “After” since the end of the first book is left open. If you read After and found it dramatic then wait until After 2, it gets 10x better! All the events are unexpected, and it sure pushes your emotions a lot more. I seriously don’t know how many times I’ve cried and bursted in laughter at the same time while reading this.
There’s not much I can say about “After 3”. First of all, it’s not finished yet, and second, I’ve started very recently, I’ve only read 10 chapters. I’m loving it so far tho. Still, Anna Todd (the writer) AKA imaginator1d (her username on wattpad) has already said this will be the last book so it really worries me to think of how the story might end. There are so many questions I want to know the answer but at the same time I hate spoilers!
On this year’s spring break there was also a big annoucement, there will be a movie for this fanfiction! I’m really excited about it and I’ll be on the front row on the theatre when it comes out! It’s still something really fresh and we barely have information about it.
There’s a thing I’d like to warn about this fanfiction and it might make you feel a little unconfortable while reading it, it’s that it is rated R, for other words, it has sexually detailed scenes and uses strong language.
Right now you probably think I’m a pervert for being 15 and reading something like this, but the story is a lot more than sex scenes. It has a lesson behind it, it’s captivating and I have to admit it went a lot beyond my expectations, i really suggest you read because I know you’ll love!
There many ways to read after. Most of the people read it online on wattpad here
You can also download the app for a portable device like an iPad or iPhone (like I do because no laptop remember hahah).
If your mother language isn’t English and just don’t get along reading it, you should google it on your language, After has been translated to A LOT of languages.
There’s this thing you might wanna do if you start reading After: select your favorite love songs and put them together in a playlist and listen to it while reading! A lot of people I know did it and I also made one on Spotify that can check out here :)
Hope you liked this post and that you’re going to read After from this day on! I also want to apologize to any reader who didn’t liked this post but it’s hard to please everyone, and this was something I really wanted to share!
Btw I wasn’t promoting Anna or Anna’s fanfiction with any second intentions, I just really like the story and wanted to share it with you, she doesn’t even know I exist lol
