24 Things Women Over 30 Should Wear

Originally posted on Warning:Curves Ahead:
This morning, as I was perusing my Facebook timeline, I happened upon an article that a lovely friend shared. It was entitled “24 Things Women Should Stop Wearing After Age 30”, and it triggered Maximum Eye-Rolling from everyone who took the time out to read it. Written by Kallie Provencher…

Halfway drunk on a Wednesday night

or life in a house with 10 people and saying goodbye to two of them. Step one: Say farewell to one of the cutest-funnest-awesomest couple you’ve ever met. They are going traveling somewhere around central Asia, not really knowing exactly where and for how long. They have been living in the house for around two…

Από εδώ το jetlag

ο νέος αγαπημένος μου φίλος. Πριν από ακριβώς 3 μήνες, Δευτέρα 1 Φεβρουαρίου, μπήκα σε ένα ταξί (αφού το φόρτωσα με 2 βαλίτσες, 1 σακίδιο πλάτης μεγάλο, 1 μικρό, ένα σακ-βουαγιάζ και μια στέκα με τεράστια φτερά) κλαίγοντας.

They lost it on my way to Panama, found it, delivered it to me 5 days later and on my way back to Brazil they lost it again. So I’ve spent quite a few weeks switching from frustrating, vindictive and angry thoughs, to a miserable ‘poor me’ attitude and to ‘maybe it was for a reason’ , desperate-to-stay-positive philosophizing. This blog, along with a handy guide on “what to do when you really want to kill everyone in the airport”, is an attempt for me to balance those states of mind.

Blogger’s block vs Raise Your Voice

It seems that every time I want to write about something, anything, about my life here in Brazil, about things that I find interesting, things I find weird, things I just want to share with my friends, I get a kind of a writer’s block: “will this really matter to anyone, wherther I write it…
