Good at Naps

27 Apr 2019

Totally unrelated to the pictures, but I wanted to share with you something that happened to me yesterday…

I got home, cleaned the room, and made plans for the evening. But before that, I thought that I deserved to lay down for a bit just to “rest my eyes.” I bet I’m not the first to tell myself this little lie. Lol.

I woke up in the middle of the night, and reluctantly went to brush my teeth and went back to bed. Funny that if I fall sleep without brushing my teeth I ALWAYS wake up during the night to do it. I guess my body knows I don’t like to be without a brushed teeth. haha

Anyways… I woke up from this 12 hour nap this morning and man, that was good!

I haven’t always been this good at naps. I remember while growing up I was the only one who wouldn’t take the traditional “afternoon naps.” My brain was always in full speed that nothing could make me turn it off during the day, even if I wanted. Then, there was I, trying to entertain myself while all others were napping.

But today I’m not just good at naps, because I’m GREAT at it! Lol. What are good at? haha


Happy Halloween!

Welcome, Spring! | Seja Bem-Vinda, Primavera!

21 Mar 2018

Spring is here, finally!! This last Winter wasn’t that bad, it snowed just a few days, and I can say it wasn’t a very painful Winter. But Spring is my favorite and I’m super excited that finally is the season that you see flowers everywhere. If you know me enough, you know how much I like (I mean, love) flowers!

These pictures were taken like three years ago… I know, it’s been awhile… right?! Lol. I actually have so many pictures that haven’t been posted at all… I’m that person, who has a bunch of pics and don’t post that much.

A primavera finalmente chegou!! Esse último inverno não foi tão frio, só nevou alguns dias, então não foi um inverno sofrido. Mas primavera é a minha preferida, e estou feliz de finalmente ter chegado a estação das flores. Se você me conhece bem, você sabe o quanto eu gosto (leia-se amo) flores!

Essas fotos foram tiradas tipo três anos atrás… Eu sei, já um tempinho né?! Na verdade, eu tenho um monte de fotos que ainda não postei… Eu sou aquela pessoa que tem um monte de fotos, e posta uma ou duas.

These pictures were taken the first Spring after I moved to Utah from Virginia. Spring in D.C., which was close to where I lived, is incredible, but I didn’t get any decent picture of myself taken while I was there. So when I moved to Utah, I asked a Brazilian photographer which I knew from Instagram to take my pictures.

Essas fotos foram tiradas na primeira primavera depois de que me mudei de Virgínia pra Utah. A primavera em D.C., que era perto de onde eu morava, é incrível, mas eu não tive uma foto decente de mim enquanto eu morava lá. Então quando me mudei pra Utah, eu pedi pra uma fotógrafa brasileira que conheci no Instagram, pra tirar umas fotos de mim.

I love how these pictures turned out!! Although my looks haven’t changed much since then, a few things have changed, like… I don’t feel this stiff anymore while having my pictures taken. I finally learned how to curl my hair. I also learned how to use my camera, so now instead of paying someone, I just teach my friends how to do it!

Eu amo essas fotos!! E apesar de minha aparência não ter mudado muito nesses anos, algumas outras coisas mudaram, tipo… Eu não me sinto mais acanhada quando alguém está me fotografando. Eu finalmente aprendi a fazer babyliss no meu cabelo. E também, aprendi a usar minha câmera, e agora em vez de pagar alguém, minhas amigas são quem tiram minhas fotos!
