Why is December the quickest month of the year? It seems like it has just began and already it’s the 11th, and I still have a lot of Christmas sight seeing to do in Berlin….would you please slow down a bit?!

Here are my five favourites from this week:

1- This week the St. Peter’s Basilica was the canvas to project photos of endangered animals to bring attention on environmental protection, you can see more photos here;

2- The new X-Men Apocalypse trailer is here!!

3- Astonishing pictures of Canada taken by photographer Stevin Tuchiwsky got me thinking to take the next plane there! Check out his website and/or Instagram;

4- Finished my second hoop art this week….yay for me! Don’t you just love The Rollings Stone’s tongue?!

5- Funny illustrations of Disney’s princesses and princes as grandparents and elderly folks by Isaiah K. Stephens.

This week passed so quick! We are doing a lot touristy things around Berlin lately, so much is going on in this city in December, I highly recommend visiting the beautiful Christmas Markets, I’m gonna write about that later on for sure 🙂

Here are my 5 favourites of this week:

1- I was in shock today when I read that Scott Weiland is no longer in between us, the first time I saw him live was when I went to see an Aerosmith concert in Brazil back in 2007, and Velvet Revolver opened the night. I was amazed by Scott’s performance and voice, he really knew how to capture your attention….a real rockstar! Then I saw him live again in 2011 at a festival, but this time it was with the Stone Temple Pilots, and of course it was amazing again! I have Velvet’s first album, Contraband, in my iPod, and I listen to it all the time, Slither is one of my favourite music. R.I.P Scott, thank you for your great contribution to rock’n’roll;

2- This video of David Grohl and the Muppets band playing Learn to Fly, made me laugh!

3- We started to watch Scandal on Netflix, mainly because we are running out of series around here, but if I knew better, I would have started it before…it’s so good, we’re really hooked up, just started the third season;

4- I love tattoos, currently I have four, but would like very much to increase that number…hahaha. Found these beautiful tattoos by Marla Moon, loved the combination of nature and geometry;

5- Pantone’s new colours for 2016 are pastel pink and blue, you can find out here why they choose two colours this time.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend 🙂

This week was a tough one, PMS really got me….again 😦 Since I stopped taking birth control pills earlier this year, my hormones are acting CRAZY! I stopped taking it because after almost ten years non stop, I thought it was time to break away, and also the price of my pill here in Berlin is way more expensive than in São Paulo, and that only encouraged my thoughts. Since then, I have experienced an acne breakout with little zits and some painful cystic ones (these are the worst) and even fever during the period. I feel like the PMS symptoms are worst, I get irritated much more easier (just a simple word or a look at me, makes me wanna punch someone…of course that I don’t), and some days I wake up and don’t feel like doing anything at all, because I feel so tired….super odd because there is no reason for that. I know that not all women suffer from strong PMS, and maybe this is just my body adjusting from all those extra hormones taken during years, but in the end I’m happy with my decision, if I feel this way now, what would have happen if I stopped after 15 years? Sorry for my outburst, I feel kind of silly and guilty talking about this while there are bigger problems going on in the world, but writing about it helps me a little 😉

Anyway, here are my 5 favourite things that cheered me up a little bit this week:

1- A new trailer of Scorsese and Jagger’s tv show Vinyl was released this week, can’t wait for it;

2- 24 Incredible color photos of ethnic exotic from around the world in the early 20th century;

3- This cute little kitchen is a part of Woody, a trailer home built by Brian and Joni Buzarde, wish I had one too 🙂

4- I’m a huge sucker for movie posters and I loved this One Point Perspective Collection made by Van Orton Design, the bright colours are awesome!

5- 10 Excellent pieces of advice that every artist should remember, I don’t think that only artists should live by that, Picasso’s quote should be my daily mantra!

Hope you have a blessed and beautiful weekend 😉

I was totally lost during this week, I thought Tuesday was Monday and Wednesday was Thursday…haha Also, today was the last day of our german integration course, after 7 months I can say that I improved a lot! I’ll write more about that next week 😉

Here are my 5 favourite things of this week:

1- Sea World announced this week that they will end the orca shows in San Diego, for me as a biologist and as a person who cares about animal welfare this was a win, I hope that they will also stop it in the other parks as well;

2- I admit that I’m a Friends addict, don’t know exactly how many times I’ve watched the show, for me it will never get old, I’ll laugh over the same jokes for ever! Although my favourite character is Joey, Ross sometimes makes me laugh hard. “The one with Ross’s tan” is one of my top ten favs! You can see here 31 Friends jokes that never get old;

3- The Barbie evolution across 56 years, 1971 was my favourite! But during my childhood my Barbie’s style were the 1994 and 95;

4- This amazing audio of Freddie Mercury & David Bowie singing Under Pressure A capella gave me goosebumps!

5- How would you behave if your 18 year old self interviewed your future self? Peter Emshwiller had that idea when we was a teen, and after 38 years he wants to finish that project. Here is a video sample of “Later that same life“….curious and funny!

Hope you have an amazing weekend!

This week was a slow one, Fall break ended last Friday, so that means we had German course this week. We attended class in the mornings (german language seems to be getting harder…and harder 😦 ), and spent the afternoons at home…same old, same old. But it’s good to have a calm week sometimes 😉

Here are my 5 weekly favourites:

1- Rafael and I went to the movies to watch Alice in Wonderland on our first date night, back in 2010 😮 This week was released a new trailer of Alice in Wonderland 2: Through the Looking Glass, can’t wait to see it! Who doesn’t like Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter, am I right?! hahaha;

2- Honest “Monopoly”cards that are almost too relatable;

3- I’ve always wanted to travel to Barcelona and see Gaudí’s work, now, after 133 years later, the Sagrada Família has entered its final stage of construction;

4- After reading Anthony Bourdain’s 6 punishable-by-death sushi don’ts, I’d be dead right now! haha;

5- I know that Halloween already came and went, but sorry for being obsessed with my awesome Mexican sugar skull!

Have a lovely and blessed weekend!

Be Happy 😀

Almost feeling good as new after the terrible cold I caught last week. Rafael took great care of me as usual (truth is, I love being spoiled by him sometimes…hahaha). Looking forward to the weekend, tomorrow is supposed to be a sunny day here in Berlin….YAY!!!

Here are my 5 Weekly Favs:

TGIF! For me this week passed really slow, sometimes I get irritated over dumb things and that usually kills the good mood in the house, if there’s one thing I need to learn to control, it’s my temper. Also, everyone at my german class is sick, and for my bad luck I caught it too, luckily Rafael didn’t. At least we get to stay home for the next two weeks, it’s Autumn break around here…yay!

Here are my 5 weekly favourites:

1- Best wildlife photograph by National Geographic, you can see here 11 of the year’s best wildlife photographs;

2- Mademoiselle Privé, a Chanel’s exhibition is taking place at Saatchi Gallery in London. It’s a journey through the origins of Chanel’s creations capturing the charismatic personality and irreverent spirit of Mademoiselle Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld. Wish I was there to visit!

3- The chicest movie posters of all time, I fell in love with that Black Swan’s poster;

4- Popular brands logos brilliantly mashed up with famous paintings;

5- How beautiful are these embroidered piece of nature by Oly Shamrik?!

Have a wonderful weekend!

And if you are in Germany, Schönes Ferien!
