All about my wedding – Wedding Ceremony

i-PGfj5tj-X2

For our wedding ceremony, me and my husband wanted to be something really special por us, each detail was chosen to share our ‘eternal yes’ and our love with all the dear ones present on the big day. We chose to do an unconventional ceremony, made by a celebrant that we searched with so much care, we wanted someone who really understood our love and how our wedding day was so special for us, we chose the celebrant Lidia Vas and we could not have chosen a better person, our ceremony was full of love and special details!

With Lidia’s help, we decided to do some different rituals to make our ceremony even more with like us! Before our wedding day, we asked our parents, godparents, grandparents and special people to write a letter to us with advice and how they expect me and my husband to be in the next 5 years, we both also wrote a letter with the votes and our idealizations, we put all the cards in a special box, that it was sealed during the ceremony and it will only be opened on our 5 year anniversary.

At the beginning of the celebration, we did a tribute to our parents where I gave a bouquet of flowers to my husband’s parents and he gave to my parents, symbolizing that we were thanking our parents for that day but also thanking our new parents and our new family, it was a moment full of love and joy!


Para a nossa cerimônia de casamento, eu e meu marido queríamos que fosse algo muito especial para nós, cada detalhe escolhido para dividir nosso ‘eterno sim’ e nosso amor com todas pessoas queridas presentes no grande dia. Escolhemos por uma cerimônia não convencional, feita por uma celebrante que escolhemos com o maior carinho, queríamos alguém que realmente entendesse o nosso amor e o quanto o dia do nosso casamento era especial para nós, escolhemos a celebrante Lidia Vas e não podíamos ter escolhido pessoa melhor, nossa cerimônia foi cheia de sentimos, amor e detalhes especiais!

Com a ajuda da Lidia, escolhemos fizer alguns rituais diferentes para deixar a nossa cerimônia ainda mais com o nosso jeitinho! Antes do dia do nosso casamento, pedimos para nossos pais, padrinho, avós e pessoas especiais, que escreverem uma carta para nós com conselhos e o que eles esperam para a nossa união nos próximos 5 anos, nós dois também fizemos uma carta com os votos e nossas idealizações, colocamos todas as cartas em uma caixa especial que foi selada durante a cerimônia e será só aberta no nosso aniversário de 5 anos de casados.

No começo da celebração, fizemos uma homenagem aos nossos pais onde eu entreguei um buquê de flores para os pais do meu marido e ele aos meus pais, simbolizando que estamos agradecendo aos nossos pais por aquele dia mas também agradecendo aos nossos novos pais e a nossa nova família, foi um momento cheio de amor e alegria!

A very nice suggestion from Lidia was the Sand’s Ritual, on the altar, there was some small containers with sand of two colors for each godparents and parents, one color for the bride’s family and another color for the groom’s side, during the ceremony the sands were placed in larger container intercalating the colors, in the end me and my husband sealed the vase pouring our sands. This ritual, symbolizes our union, when grains of sand of different colors are mixed they can no longer be separated and also the blessing of all the guest to our marriage.

We could not have thought of a more special ceremony, not just for us but for all our guests!


Uma sugestão muito legal que a Lidia fez foi o Ritual das Areias, onde no altar existe pequenos recipientes com areias de duas cores para cada casal de padrinhos e pais, uma cor para a família da noiva e outra cor para o lado do noivo, durante a cerimônia as  areias são colocadas em um recipiente maior intercalando as cores, no final nós selamos o vaso despejando as nossas areias. Esse ritual, simboliza a nossa união, quando grãos de areias de diferentes cores se misturam eles não conseguem mais ser separados e também a bênção de todos os convidados pelo nosso casamento.

Não poderíamos ter pensado em uma cerimônia mais especial, não apenas para nós mas como para todos os nossos convidados!

fotor_150827476902239.jpg

Ipsy Bag is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full-size or deluxe-sized beauty products, plus a cute makeup bag. The cost is $10 each month with free shipping and it ships to U.S. and Canada. This month I received a Halloween inspired makeup bag with a lace print and a bat zipper pull plus 5 items. Now, on to the items that I received!


A Ipsy Bag é um a caixa de assinatura de produtos de beleza e maquiagem. Todo mês você recebe alguns produtos em tamanho grande ou amostras, mais uma nécessaire. Custa $10 por mês e a entrega é gratuita, mas infelizmente só entrega nos Estados Unidos e no Canadá. Esse mês recebi uma nécessaire inspirada no Halloween (que jájá chega!), com estampa de renda e o puxador do zíper é de morcego e mais 5 itens. Agora vamos ver o que eu recebi!

Apresentação1

Rimmel London – Lasting Finish by Kate Nude Collection in Shade 47 – Full Size Value $5

It has a moisturizing formula, really creamy, and well-pigmented, the color is a warm pink, great for a natural look or an everyday look and it is a great lipstick for the price!


Tem a textura bem hidratante e cremosa, super pigmentado, a cor é um rosa queimado, ótimo para looks mais naturais e para usar no dia-dia. É um batom com um ótimo custo-benefício.

Urban Decay – 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil in Pervesion – 0.8g Value $15

Probably, this can be the best eye liner that I ever tried! The creamy texture goes on smooth, but doesn’t smudge and it does stay forever, the formula is waterproof and it only come off with a makeup remover.


Provavelmente, esse seja um dos melhores lápis de olhos que eu já usei! Tem uma textura bem suave e é super fácil de passar, e realmente dura muito, é um produto à prova d’água e só sai com demaquilante.

Context – Vitamin C All Day Eye Cream – Full Size Value $35

 I had heard many good things about CONTEXT and was super excited to finally try one of their products! I was not disappointed, the formula is lightweight, hydrating, absorbs quickly and the one of the best part, it is fragrance free. Goodbye dark circles!


Já tinha ouvido falar muito sobre a marca CONTEXT e quando recebi esse produto fiquei realmente muito animada em finalmente provar um produto deles! E não me desapontei, tem a textura super leve, hidrata muito bem a região dos olhos e a pele absorve o produto muito rápido e o melhor, não tem cheiro. Adeus olheiras!

Fotor_150827490583435

BLAQ Mask – 15ml Value $7.20

I love all pore strips and masks so I was super excited to test this one. It works great, it is easy to use, it left my skin feeling so smooth and actually pulled out some blackheads, the only down side is that it is a little bit hard to peel off.


Eu amo usar mascaras ou produtos que prometem tirar os cravinhos então quando eu recebi esse produto, fiquei super animada para provar. Funciona bem, a aplicação do produto é super fácil e quando tirei minha pele estava lisinha e realmente tirou vários cravinho, única coisa que achei um pouco ruim foi na hora de tirar, não é muito fácil.

Fotor_15082748648893.jpg

It Cosmetics – Bye Bye Pores Pressed Finishing Powder – 3g Value $9.60

The translucent powder is designed to help mattify skin, hide pores, and give you an airbrushed like finish and this one definitely gives you that. It keeps my makeup in place all day and gives my skin a nice finish.


O pó translúcido é feito para ajudar a matificar a pele, esconder os poros e deixar a pele com um acabamento perfeito, e esse produto realmente entrega o que oferece. Ele ajuda a manter a maquiagem o dia todo e o rosto fica com um acabamento lindo.

This box value was $71.80, it is an OWW! for a $10 bag, I got two full size items and great products samples. All items are great fits for me, and I got to try some new products/brands that I loved!


O valor a Ipsy Bag desse mês é de $71.80 o que é incrível para um assinatura que custa $10, eu recebi dois produtos de tamanho grande e ótimas amostras. Gostei muito de todos os itens e com certeza vou continuar usando todos, e o melhor pude experimentar novos produtos/marcas que eu amei!

Wednesday Favorites: Drugstore Beauty Products

Fotor_150765770983518

Today, I’m sharing a post that I’ve been wanting to write for some time and I think you guys are going to love it! Don’t get me wrong, I love getting lost in Sephora for hours, but you really can’t beat a good drugstore beauty buy! In Brazil the drugstores have a makeup corner but is so small comparing to the ones in US, all Brazilians get crazy when they travel to US and they want to buy everything. The good prices mean that you don’t have to think twice about trying a new product, trend or shade, most products are only a few dollars, and I would say the majority are in between $5-$15. Check out my drugstore favorites in today’s post and make sure to grab a few of these on your next visit to Target or CVS, you won’t regret it, I promise!


Hoje, vou compartilhar com vocês um assunto que já faz um tempo que quero escrever e imagino que vocês vão amar! Não me leve a mal, eu adoro ficar por horas e horas na Sephora experimentando vários produtos, mas aqui nos Estados Unidos, não tem nada melhor do que comprar produtinhos de beleza nas farmácias! No Brasil temos uma seção de maquiagens nas farmácias mas nada que se compare com o tamanho dessas seções aqui, são milhares de marcas e produtos, nós brasileiros sabemos o quanto ficamos loucos e queremos comprar tudo quando vamos viajar. Além de ter uma super variedade, os preços são ótimos, os valores ficam entre $5-$15, e isso significa que você não precisa pensar duas vezes na horas de provar um novo produto, cor ou tendência. Juntei meus atuais favoritos e vou compartilhar com vocês, na próxima viagem para EUA não deixem de comprar e experimentar, prometo que não vão se arrepender!

Lunch in Miami at Suviche

Fotor_150602081993396

Launched in 2010, Suviche is the perfect combination of Japonese and Peruvian cuisines, with four locations in Miami including Wynwood, Brickell, Miami Beach and most recently Las Olas, the restaurant offers a variety of flavorful sushi rolls, ceviche and Peruvian specialties. Two locations, Wynwood and Las Olas, also have a Pisco Bar. Why the name is Suviche?  “Su” denotes the sushi portion of the menu, and “Viche” is because it has a lot of kinds of ceviche in the menu. We went o the Wynwood location, the patio was so cozy with swing sets, couches and a big Wynwood type mural, a very inviting decoration.

We were there for lunch and we end up choosing to orderd dishes to share, we got the Naural Ceviche, white fish  Traditos, Nectar Roll and Tropical Roll, everything was so delicious and fresh! For dessert, we ordered the classic Peruvian Suspiro Limeno, a kind of dulce de leche-meets-custard combination topped with meringue and sprinkled with cinnamon.

We loved everything about Suviche, the decor was so cool and the food was delicious! I wish we have one in Atlanta! But for sure is a great excuse to go back to Miami!

Beauty Wishlist

My husband might says that I already have too much makeup, but as a beauty junkie, buying a new lip stick or a facial mask makes my heart beat faster. I always want to buy new products and try new brands. Let’s see what is on my beauty wishlist, check out the full list below!

wishlist september 21.Urban Decay – Naked Heat Eyeshadow Palette ($54): Who does not like Urban Decay Eyeshadows? And you can be sure that I’m in this with you all, but this Naked Heat is the perfect palette, the colors are gorgeous and I would definitely use all of them, this is for sure my number one on my wishlist!

2.The Ordinary – Multi-Technology Peptide Serum ($15): The brand’s philosophy is that they offer scientific research-backed ingredients which are specifically targeted toward a certain skin issue you want to address, all the while delivering at a fair margin of profit, for a skin product the price is really good and I read a lot of good reviews about it, I am really excited to try this one.

3.Grace & Stella Co. – Anti-Wrinkle + Energizing Eye Masks ($20/12 pairs): I have dark circles that really bothers me, so when I find new products for that, I always want to buy. This one probably will be my next purchase!

4.Derek Lam – Drunk on Youth Perfume Stick ($38): I loved the scent that it is fruity and sweet, the packaging is so cute and it is great to carry with you in your purse.

5.Makeup Drop – Silicone Makeup Applicator ($20): While I love my BeautyBlender, it does have downsides, it really does waste a lot of product due to absorption and cleaning is never very pleasant and I saw great reviews about this silicone applicator.

6.NYX – Makeup Setting Spray – Matte ($8): There is nothing I love more than beauty on a budget, I have seen great reviews of this and because I have oily skin I am really excited to try this!

7.Dior – Cheek & Lip Glow ($37): Do I need another pinkish lip tint? No, probably not. Do I want this pinkish lip tint? Yes! Yes I do. This one is not only a lip tint but a check tint too. I think the price is a little bit too expensive and probably I will not buy it, but maybe I can get it as a gift!

Are any of them on your wishlist too? Have you try any of these products?

Ipsy Glam Bag – September 2017 Reviews

Fotor_150549628819013

As I told on the last post, Ipsy Bag is a monthly beauty and makeup subscription box. Each month you get full-size or deluxe-sized beauty products, plus a cute makeup bag. The cost is $10 each month with free shipping and it ships to U.S. and Canada. This month I received a super cute black faux leather bag with one full size and four deluxe samples products. Now let’s look at the items I got:

Ciaté London – Wonderwand Mascara in Black Magic – 0.118oz Value $7.20 (Full-Size 0.32oz $22.00)

I really liked this mascara, it lengthens my lashes and it makes me look like I’m wearing flash lashes while still volumizing and it doesn’t clump which is a big bonus. It is also a really nice deep black that just pop on the eyes. My only complaint is that the big brush makes it hard to reach the shorter lashes.

Pacifica – Coconut Blush – Full Size Value $18

I have not tried any Pacifica products before and I was really impressed with the great quality of the product, the duo blush palette is great and the colors are beautiful, perfect for summer. I used the both colors blended and it looked even prettier.

Smashbox – Photo Finish Foundation Primer Radiance – 0.25 oz Value $9.75 (Full-Size 1 oz $39.00)

This primer is a super product to go for. This really does what it claims, it gives a beautiful overall glow and it would work well even if you don’t apply foundation after. I admit, because I have combination skin and sometimes, I can be a little skeptical of radiance primers because some have a habit of making me appear more oily then glowy but this one works great, it mattifies the pores and also gives you a smooth finish.

Fotor_150549604887831

Neogen – Serum in Oil Drop White Truffle – 0.52 oz Value $10.70 (Full-Size 1.69 oz $35.00)

I really like how it feels on my skin, it is a light serum and it seems to do a good job of moisturizing for my skin. I just started using so I can’t really say how it is going to work on my skin, but the first impression is great!

Fotor_150549613778550

Papaya Enzyme – Power Cleanser – 0.03 oz each (received 5 packets) Value $7.10 (Full-Size 0.03 oz each/14 packets $20.00)

I have never used a power cleanser, this was new to me, at first, I was worried about adding too much water but I think it may be to whatever you think is best for you, I liked it and it made my skin soft after using, but I still prefer the liquids one. The packed is great to travel although for everyday is not the most convenient one.

This box value was $52.75, which is a really good value for a $10 bag, I got one full size item and great products samples, except for the power cleanser that I am not really sure, so I am really happy. I cannot wait for the next Ipsy Glam Bag!
