Humor is the tendency of particular cognitive experiences to provoke laughter and provide amusement. Wikipedia.  
I choose to be silly most of the time because sometimes that’s all you need to
be happy.  Life is composed of moments and if we fill them with lightness
of heart and spirit everything looks and feels much better.  It’s not
always easy to do that but, it’s worth the try!  I hope you have a fun and
laughter-filled weekend!

Thanks for the laugh @miianinii and @daempressfifi

It was about time for Christmas jumpers to get a makeover.  The old
Christmas sweaters tend to be so ugly looking that they would only look good on
extremely pretty people.  Now we all can look good in these Christmas
jumpers because they’re so beautiful in themselves that many will be tempted to
wear them way past Christmas season.  If shipping to Sao Paulo wouldn’t be
so expensive I would like one of each.  All available at NET-A-PORTER.

Beauty is what beauty does! Meaning, in this case, that not all bathrooms need to be white in order to be beautiful.  When dark, good and exotic materials are utilized and mixed with contrasting elements as brass, light washed wood and a lot or just enough mirror the opulence of a dark bathroom is not only unique and normally unexpected but, it’s also seductive.   I’m in love with the Chinoiserie vanities of the bathroom above.  I also love the rustic unpolished floor and the detail of the different colors and size marble in the shower below.  It’s a total dream, isn’t it?  The bathroom, first and second images, belong to Kim Herbert, Harper’s Bazzaar uk editor via Elle Decor.  Enjoy!

If you have a Blackberry you are missing big time on the big party called Instagram.  I’m an irreversible addict; I should confess.  What? Facebook? oh… that ain’t feed ego! Instagram is like a labyrinth!, that I should warn you but, once you taste it you’re taken forever.
I don’t remember how I came across Luisa Fernanda (@luisafere) but, I’m so glad I did!  Not only does she have the most updated and fashionable wardrobe ever but, also the best Instagram gallery I’ve seen so far.  Every time I look at one of her assemblances I weep because it reminds me of my lonely wardrobe still stocked inside a container in a port in Santos, Sao Paulo, waiting to reunited with its mami.  If you don’t know Luisa you should and get inspired!  You’ll see how she can teach a thing or two to many fashion bloggers? 

 Seriously? converse, leopard throw, a dog and the coolest air giraffe on a Sunday morning? 

She has the coolest kid in the block, Alonzo Mateo and as you can see him above he doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to style. 

 He is adorable!
 Then I get to sneak peek into her home too.
