Portuguese Bull Fight

My love, some friends and I went to a friends house for his annual Portuguese bullfight that was thrown annual. It was also a way to get the family together once a year as well. As we arrived, it was beautiful decorated with hay, vine leaves, and grapes. Kids were running around in cowboy/cowgirl gear and adults standing and/or sitting in a circle drinking wine or beer and talking in their native language as if it had only been yesterday that they've haven't seen each other.

Food was served; roasted lamb, corn, watermelon just to name a few. As soon as the fight started everyone dropped what they were doing and surrounded the ring to see the brave men. Family members went around serving peanuts in little cute popcorn bags and traditional Portuguese candy wrapped as if it's a cigar.

If you do not know anything about the Portuguese bullfight here is a little history: Traditional Portuguese bullfighting contains a man, a horse and the bull. The goal for the man and the horse is to "draw the bull into a charge, but not to kill" (source). For more information of Portuguese bullfight click here.

Home: Bedroom Organization

Moving into a new apartment with your loved one can be pretty scary especially when its a small space and you both have a lot of clothes, accessories and so on. I've been searching the web, pinterest and youtube for ideas on how to create a good organizational space area in all aspects of the apartment, especially the bedroom and think I came up with a solution.

 


1. Small closet space, then this 9 compartment is perfect.
2. If you are a OCD organizational person (like me), then these boxes are perfect for undergarments
3. You could purchase a shoe rack, but these shoe boxes will keep your shoes looking brand new
4. If space is still not enough for the both of you in the closet, try getting a clothing rack
5. This is a brilliant idea, a hanging clip for keeping your winter mitts together
6. Have too many scarfs but not knowing how to maintain it, this 8-loop hanger is perfect.

Roadtrip Playlist

I'm in San Francisco yet again visiting some friends and family members with my love. Since I haven't been to southern California my love and I decided to take a little road trip down to LA. It was perfect timing as some of my family friends were down there. Unfortunatly, when it comes to planning and preparing, we're not the best. We're both last minute planners and booking the hotels we will be staying at.

It was a long drive down to LA and so I put together a playlist for our journey, because knowing us both, we will run out of conversation, get bored easily and road trip games are just not my thing. At first it was hard putting this playlist together since our taste in music is completely different.

1. Ariana Grande featuring Mac Miller - The Way
2. Ariana Grande featuring Nathan Sykes - Almost is Never Enough
3. Girls Aloud - Jump
4. Jay Z featuring Beyonce - 03' Bonnie & Clyde
5. John Newman - Love me Again
6. Lana Del Rey - Summertime Sadness (Cedric Gervais Remix)
7. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis - Can't Hold Us
8. Mumford and Sons - The Cave
9. Paolo Nutini - New Shoes
10. Paolo Nutini - Candy
11. Paolo Nutini - Jenny Don't Be Hasty
12. Savage Garden - To the Moon and Back
13. Shakira - La Tortura
14. Swedish House Mafia - Don't you Worry Child
15. The Wanted - Glad you Came
16. The Wanted - Chasing the Sun
17. The Wanted - We Own The Night
18. The Wanted - I Found You
19. The Wanted - Glow in the Dark
20. The Wanted - All Time Low
21. The Wanted - Lightning
22. The Wanted - Lose My Mind
23. The Wanted - Warzone

Rituals




Imagine having a nice bubble bath while sipping a cup of herbal tea, wine or any type of soothing and calming drink. Well that is what Raymond Cloosterman wanted to bring into the beauty and skincare market in the year 2000 when he founded the British company Rituals. The products are all organic with no animal testing and dermatologist tested as well.

Skin Care



I have really dry and sensitive skin so it's really hard for me to purchase any skincare products. But I've found some products that cater to my skin type and have been taking care of it for the past year. It's been quite a struggle for me because I'm the laziest person when it comes to keeping up with a routine or basically maintaining one. But for the past few weeks, it's been really well, and there are some products that I've been loving and that my skin's been loving too. There are other products I've been using as well [mentioned below], but these are the products that I'm using at the moment.
