Questions & Answers

As promised, I am going to do a Q&A with all of your questions made on my Fan Page.
I read it all carefully and I hope with this post I can answer to all of your doubts.

Also, it's important to say that this Q&A is not just to let you know more about me, but to help some people that are in such circumstances. For example, if some of you asked me about opinions that ocurred in your life and you don't know what to do or even if you took any actions that you don't know if it was the right thing to do, my answers are to help all of you. I am not saying I am right or follow my instructions, but you asked my opinion and I am going to give you!

I hope you enjoy it, and if you didn't do any question don't worry, you can do it next time!

1. What do you like to listen to? (As in music) :)
Well I don't have any specific type of music that I like to listen. Let's say it depends a lot on my mood, in one day I might want to listen to old school musics and in another listen to something totally different.

2. Have you thought about starting a YouTube Channel? c:
Ahm... I don't think I could do it now. I mean... Is not impossible at all! Is not something that I haven't thought about because I really would like to, however I am shy to do it at the moment. It would be a challenge for me.

3. What is the biggest ambition in your life?
To succeed. I am a very ambitious person and I have my objectives outlined. I want to succeed in all of them.

4. What feeling comes up when you dance?
Happiness and Passion. Dancing is expressing your feelings throught your coreography. Is not just doing one or two steps, no... dancing is a way of setting you free from the problems. I say this because when I am sad, when life is tricky to me, I dance and I straight away feel so happy that everything stays out of my mind. Is my refuge.

5. What is your biggest dream?
To become an amazing journalist in BBC Company and also become a professional dancer.

6. What changes happened in your life? And why did they make you change?
The most significance was defenitely moving from my country to England. It was a huge change in my life. I let everything behind, I had to accomodate to a new life, starting from the zero again. But I don't think it was a bad thing, I actually think the opposite. Yes I was and I still am sad because it's not possible to be with my friends and my family but it made me grow up, it made me be a better person, valorize the important things, have more maturity. Life isn't bad, isn't that horrible thing that some people say it is, life is a journey, is where we need to find where we belong to and conquest our objectives and to be happy. We only have one life.

7. What took you to right a blog? :)
I always wanted to right a blog I just didn't have enought courage to do it, perhaps because I was scared of what other people could think but now I feel like my blog is something personal, is something that I do because I enjoy and if I can help other people with my ideas and thoughts it's a perfect package! Also, I am trying to improve my writing for my future because I want to become a journalist. When I was little, I always wrote down my thoughts, it helped me a lot. It felt like... I wrote it, it's there, it's mine, I "talked" about it, done! Try it youself, and let me know if it helped you too!

8. Apart from dancing, what is your hobbie/job that you like and you would like to follow?
I am currently studying Media in College because I want to become journalist. One of my objectives is to go into BBC Company and work there. So in my spare times I write on my blog, it defenitely helps me a lot!

9. What is the thing you valorize the most in a person?
Trust and comprehensiveness. It's always important to have a person with these qualities in my life. Someone who I can count on with trust and someone who comprehends you when you need. I am not saying that person can't fail with me, everyone make mistakes and it's where the comprehensiveness comes up.

10. If you had to resume your life in one sentance, what would it be?
If you don't have hope in life, what is the reason of living?

11. I am thinking about doing something new to my hair. I am not sure if I cut in short or if I let it grow up. I don't know if I paint it or if I paint, what colour shall I choose?
Change your apperance is always good, so first step is done. Second step is for you to check how you like to see yourself, with long or short hair? Respective to the colour, I think blonde hair is always a good choice. I love long and healthy hair. Mine is huge and it's ombre but it takes me ages to take care of it so think about that too. If you have patient to have your hair long go ahead you have my support, but if you just want the lenght and you don't have time or patient to take care of it, cut it short.

12. Do you think I should wear make up? And what can I use to make it look natural?
I am not a huge fan of exorbitant make up so if you want to look as natural as possible, just use a simple faundation, pouder, mascara and a smooth lipstick. I only use those in special occasions or when I want to look more composed. In my daily basis I only use mascara and a smooth lipstick. Let me know if you want any ideas for any products!

13. What is you inspiration to write and dance?
I don't have a specific person but the Youtuber Zoella helps me a lot with her videos because I see myself on her when it comes to the subject of anxiety and style. She writes a blog and I see the way she does things and explain it. Go and check her Channel out. Into the subject of writing, I don't have a specific person who inspires me. I just go to my bedroom, turn my music on and I write. A calm place is a good choice to write down too.

14. What is your biggest habit, quality and defect?
My hair! I am always trying to make it look as perfect as possible. In qualities I think I am very strong and hopeful person, I don't give up easily. When I want something I go and get it, if it doesn't work it's alright, at least I tried. In defects I think I am too explosive. Sometimes I don't think before I talk.

15. What is your dream trip? And what could make it perfect?
I wanna fly to Dubai. It has been my dream tip since ever! It has sun, hot weather, the sea, the monuments are amazing, the building are original, everything looks amazing there! Just by thinking about it, it makes want to go more!

16. A song that makes a lot of sense to you?
It's actually not an english song, but it makes me think so much when I listen to it.
Player- Dias cinzentos.

17. In your opinion, what is the most important thing in a reslationship?
Trust and comprehensiveness.
"A relationship without trust is like having a phone with no service. And what do you do with a phone with no service? You play games".
As long as you comprehend the person you love, whether a friend or a lover, you need to dedicate your time to that person, understand their feelings and try to mold yourself to him/her. That's the beauty of loving.

18. I stoped talking with friend that I considered important because she lied to me by saying she was going to stay at home and at the end she went out with her friends on her birthday? Do you think I overreacted?
First thing you have to think is if she lied to you she might had a reason for it OR she wasn't a good friend to you. If that friendship is true and you both care about it, I advise you to fight for it and try to understand why she did that. You can't judge something without knowing both sides. Second thing, it's absolutely normal that you took that action because you were hurt and it takes time to gain trust but to love is to forgive so go ahead and solve that problem before it's too late and don't forget to be happy!

19.I dated a person for a while and when we broke up that person overcame me very fast. The problem is that I see that person everyday and I don't know how to react. I don't know if I talk to that person like nothing happened so I don't show I am bored with the situation or if I ignore that person so it does look I care about it. What do you think I should do?
It depends of the reason why you break up. If it pacific situation such as "We won't work but let's stay friends" don't act like that person doesn't exist because it does and even if it hurts you can't show that. Smile and stay strong in front of people and when you get home if you need to cry, cry! It's okay to be sad! It doesn't prove you are a weak or strong person, it just proves you have feelings and you loved her/him! Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened think about it. Wasn't better if you could stay friends? It means you didn't actually loose that person, she/he is still in your life even if it's just friends.

And that's all guys! I hope you enjoy my Q&A and leave your comments if you have any enquires! Thank you very much for your support by making your questions!

Nivea haul: Taking care of yourself

It has been a long time since I bought a collection of creams so when I was passing through Superdrug Store I decided to go! And that was when I saw these Nivea products.
I wasn't sure about it because I never tried some of them before but if we don't try we never know and also I always loved Nivea so I knew it will be a good choice.

It wasn't too expensive, so I thought to myself "Why not?"

I picked up one for night time, 50 ml pure & natural, because I didn't have one on my creme collection. It's aimed to all type of skins and it helps regenerating my skin during the night which is superb because here in the UK the weather tend to let our skin super dry!
I am never 100% sure about cremes when I buy them until I try them out, and I have to say this one didn't disappointed me at all! It's a small package but trust me, it will last me ages because I don't fill up my whole face with it, just a little bit it's enough. This creme has its texture so if I put a lot, it won't be comfortable when I go to bed! I use this everytime before going to bed and in the next morning my skin doesn't look so bad as it used to. It looks much healthier and softer!

Another creme I picked up from Superdrug Store was the Daily Nivea 2 in 1 Cleanser & Toner 200 ml. I decided to buy this creme because I didn't have a proper creme to help removing my make up and let me tell you right now that it helps a lot! This product is aimed to normal and combination skin. I tend to use this one in the mornings after washing my face and after shower so my face is cleaner and moisturiser for the day! This creme cleans deeply so the make up is removed easily! It toners and moisturisers. I mean, just by reading the word moisturisers it's reason enough to like it, who doesn't like to have their skin hydrated? I do and I love this creme! It is composed with Vitamin E & Hydra IQ.

It wasn't expensive either so it was alright. Even if it was a slightly expensive, I think a woman needs to love herself and sometimes spend time with her skin.

The next product I picked up was the typical Nivea creme, the Body Moisturiser Rich Nourishing 250 ml. I am completly in love in this creme so I picked up in a rounded shape, the only difference between these 2 is the texture. If you are having problems with strech marks, this creme is the best one! It is so rich and at the same time moisturises it. 
I picked up one for dry skin because I only have oil skin on my face, the rest of my body skin is the opposite. 
It is also composed with Hydra IQ and it deeps moisturises with a long lasting feel.
The formula with Almond Oil softens the skin and helps to restore lost moisture; the skin compatibility is dermatologically approved; its high quality ingredients are selected to work in harmony with your skin and it's free from colourants to care for your skin. I personally think that Nivea products are one of the best in the market so why not? And also it's not that expensive at all! 

I have to admit the money I wasted on them was worth it. I love all of the caracteristcs on it, the texture, the smell and the way my skin feels, it's just amazing! 

Give them a try and leave your opinions in here!

Is London good enough?

Some people say London isn't as good as some others think. The weather doesn't help at all, people are rude, it has too much traffic and things are expensive.
In my opinion, London is a country with good and bad things and the same happens with other countries: Poverty is everywhere, good and bad weather is everywhere and the same happens with rude people.
I have experienced all of the situations above!

It's true that London has a horrible weather in Winter and Autumn, the temperature reaches 0 degrees and sometimes even less. It snows, it rains a lot and we need to wear hats, gloves, cosy socks, scarfs and boots. Altought, London it's gorgeous in winter time!

In London, the houses are prepared to help people supporting the cold. because it has central heater, so it feels so good when I arrive home and the difference between the cold of the street and the warmth of the house it's vastly different!
In Summer, London it's completly different! It's very hard to support the warmth. When the temperature reaches 30 degrees it correspond to 40 degrees in Portugal, which is a lot! I have experienced it and it feels horrible being at home. It's too hot and I feel myself boiling!
What I do when it's hot it's what almost everyone does. We go to the garden and we lay down and we do little picnics. Iit's amazing, I love it!

Going into the subject of people behaviour, I personally think that rude people are everywhere! I hate when people say that Portugal or England are completly different because people are not rude in Portugal or vice versa. No! It's not like that. I personally think that in London people tend to be much nicer because of the tourism. It's a country where every single culture come to visit or to live here. The tourism in this country it's so big that in sometimes I ask myself "What language that person might speak?".

A good solution for this it's very simple. Be happy, don't care about what others might or not might think about you! Be always polite and smile, even when someone isn't good enought to you. With your reaction, the other person will think "I want to be like this" or "I need to change my mood" or even regret about the way of they talked to you.

As I mentioned on my first post, "Traffic in London", the traffic in here is horrible! It's exhausting! Between 3 p.m. to 6 p.m it's the worst time, so I think twice before leaving home. Sometimes I am in a good mood and I don't really care about it and I just go out and do whatever I have to do and it's alright. It's kind of psychological. If we think that everything is going to be alright and we are not going to stress just because of the traffic, the journey goes alright, if we think the opposite, obviously it will go wrong.

According to the price of the things in London, it's simple. Don't go to shops where your wallet doesn't agree with. If I have 20 pounds on my wallet, obviously I am not going to "Victoria's Secret" store, I might go into "Bershka" or "H&M". We are the ones who can manage that and control ourselves. Comparing this situation to Portugal, I have to say that it's much easier spend 20 pounds in a par of jeans than spend 20 euros in a pair of jeans in Portugal. I know it sounds a little bit crazy, but it's true. In London we can earn more money, we don't need to think tree or four times before buying something. I am not saying there aren't people who can spend this and that easily, certainly not! I am just saying this for the people who think that clothes or food are expensive.

A good solution for this can be the control. Try to control yourself before buying anything, if you can't afford something don't buy it, wait for another occasion where you can buy and breath freely. Another way it's to save money. If you really want something and you don't have enough money, don't spend money on little things that you don't necessarly need. Save a little budget so when you reached your goal, you can satisfy yourself with the present you really wanted.

I hope I could help some of you with my ideas and be more than welcome to discuss this subjects with your friends or family!

Valentine's Day ♡

I know I am a little bit late as the day was yesterday but I still wanted to write an article about it.

I think Valentine's Day it's an amazing day! I know that some of you think that those dates are not so important because Valentine's Day can be any day! It's totally true but let's think about it... If it was a simple day, it wouldn't be on the calendar to commemorate.

On the Valentine's day, it's where people share their love for the person they are with. It's to surprise your boyfriend or girlfriend with lovely gifts and take him or her to a gorgeous restaurant.

Obviously, not everybody does the same! Which is fine. Some couples prefer to be at home, watch a movie, eat popcorns and sweets, being rolled up in a cosy blanket and cook for themselves. I personally love this idea, but once in a while feels good to be taken to a superb restaurant.

However, the Valentine's day can be very stressful for some people who can't decide what to give to their lover. And when comes to cook, everything goes wrong! The more I think about it, the more it stresses me. BUT, don't worry about it, your lover will understand and even if it tastes bad, he or her will say "hmm, it's...good; "yeah... it's good... yes", when obviously IT'S NOT, which makes me laugh a lot. It's ok to fail and certainly will be better next time. 

I received a beautiful rose with a card. I love flowers so I am really happy with it.

And you, what did you receive on such special day?

Traffic in London

It’s extremely difficult to travel in London without getting angry!

Every single day that I have to take my bus to go to college or arrive somewhere else, there is always a huge line of cars in front of me! 
I personaly think it’s because of the traffic lights, and I say this because in front of my house I have 2 traffic lights and one of them takes almost 3 minutes on and the other one takes only 10 seconds which causes a huge row!
The worse hour it’s usually  between 3 p.m until 6 p.m, so if you are in doubt about the time to give yourself a moment to meet London, think twice. Unless you are a patient person.
I have lived in Portugal for 15 years and I thought it was so tiring but in London it’s a thousand times worse!
Get into another subject, if you are thinking about moving to another country or have an amazing holidays in London I advise you to come! Independently of the traffic, London it’s an amazing and marvellous city to know. It has lots of green spaces and it's one of the most cities with lots of historical places.
