10 Things Single People Are Tired of Hearing

14 Feb 2019

It’s Valentines Day’s! For many is a happy day to celebrate with your loved one. But also be considerate about those (like me) who is single and this might not be the happiest day to not have someone… Thinking of that, I put together a list of 10 things I have been tired of hearing, and that everybody should stop telling to single people. Do you relate to this???
1. “How are you still single? You’re so talented/pretty/righteous….”
2. “You’ll find someone when you least expect it.”
3. “You’re too good for them. They don’t deserve you.”
4. “Don’t worry, I’m sure you will get married soon.”
5. “You’re just too picky.”
6. “You’re too pretty to be single.”
7. “Have you tried online dating?”
8. In reference to my best friend: “You guys get along so well. Why you just don’t married to each other??”
9. “I’m sure your husband will be the most amazing guy ever, and good things take time.”
10. “You should let me set you up, I know someone for you.”


Bye-bye 2018

31 Dec 2018

What a year! This was certainly one of my favorite for sure! Here is a quick look in what happened to me this year: Took 3 semesters straight, moved 3 times, had collabs with brands, started to take care more of my body, run, Yoga, Pilates, anxiety pills, took a makeup lesson, got decent $$$$ makeup products, got hair highlights, loved creative writing, decluttered and minimized my life, went to the One Republic concert, met my boss babe Muchacha Mary, went to shoot at Fox 13, got into the Communications Studies program, found out that I don’t actually hate laptops, and got myself a Macbook, had 3 crushes, had 1 boyfriend, I’m still single, went on 3 trips, made tons of new friends, and still kept the old ones. It was such an amaaaazing year and I can’t wait to see what 2019 has in store to me!

So tell me, what were the highlights of this year to you??


Miss Utah 2018

13 Dec 2018

Are you wondering why I haven’t posted much here lately? Let me explain you. I have been crowned as Miss Utah 2018, and this has been taking a lot of my time.


I got to meet again Narine Ishhanov, who’s the Miss Utah 2018, and she let me to play with her crown and sash.

This made me think of my dream as a teenager to compete for miss in my state in Brazil, but because I had always been far away of the beauty ideals, I realized that this was something just to dream about.

But it was fun to play being the Miss Utah, and Narine is a sweetheart for letting me do that. :)

Me at Fox 13 News

07 Sep 2018

This week was super exciting. I was invited by Mary Ann Horne, aka Muchacha Mary, who is the makeup guru for the segment The Place at Fox 13 News, to take the behind the scenes pictures of the show that was aired at 1 pm. The show featured a family that has a 5-year-old son with leukemia and intended to bring awareness to Childhood Cancer.

This was the first time that I have been to a TV Studio, and being a big fan of media, this was such a cool experience for me.

Something funny that happened that day is that I heard someone saying “Portuguese”, I was like, I speak Portuguese! So I started to talk to this 70ish man. He was reading a Harry Potter book in Portuguese. He told me that he served a mission to my church 50 years ago on my State in Brazil. Later he told me that his son was being interviewed on the current show. His son comes out from the recording room, and everybody starts to crowd around him wanting for a picture. I had no idea who he was until I posted a picture of me and him on my Instagram stories (see it here) saying “I don’t know who is him, but everybody wanted a picture with him, so I got mine too. lol” Then, someone replies me saying that he was Lou Ferrigno, the Hulk actor! Crazy uh?! I’m terrible with celebrities faces and names, and I had no idea that I was close to someone as famous as him.
