Haircare | The Right Cut + Favourite No Heat Styling Products

Articles / Beauty

  I’m very picky with my hair. My boyfriend knows it and my mom can’t hear me cry about how three strands fell off in the shower anymore. I’m downright paranoid about having nice hair, mainly because I don’t want to have to bother with it. Sounds paradoxical, right? Well, not really. Now here is a set of pictures of my hair – bad cut vs good cut. Sorry for a lack of good digital photographs but […]

Decor Feature & Interview with Chef Diogo Noronha   When I was preparing my graduation thesis, I decided to pick a restaurant to photograph for my decor feature; luckily I knew someone – the young, energetic and very talented chef Diogo Noronha. After a long stint at Pedro e o Lobo, an elegant-yet-casual restaurant serving modern takes on very typical Portuguese recipes, he went on to open his own (absolutely fantastic) place, Casa de Pasto. And, with […]

New Beginnings

I know, I know. I’ve been gone for ages. It’s now 2016 and this blog has been active for around three years. That’s great and all, but three years is a long time – especially when your life gets completely turned on its head in just a couple of months and you suddenly become a different person, with a different life. I’ve changed, so I’ve decided it’s time this blog changed with me. Throughout the […]

Sustainable Fashion @ Brighton Fashion Week pt. 1

Articles / Fashion / Photography

Friday I had the great pleasure of being able to attend the “Sustain” catwalk show at Brighton Fashion Week. I am one of those positive-minded people that firmly believe that the concept of “fashion week” has become more democratic in the last couple of years, with the Milan-NY-Paris-London squad losing a little bit of power as people are becoming more and more aware of emerging young talents from other parts of the world. I first started […]

It’s finally here! The first issue of LUNETA Magazine, produced by me for my Bachelor’s Degree final thesis project, is now uploaded as an .epub and can be both viewable online and downloadable. Only a small number of printed copies were available once I finished this project, since cost of print was quite high, but I’m quite proud of it and really wanted to put it out there on the web for everyone to see. It […]

ESPAÇO-B // concept store

One of my favourite places to shop in Lisbon. Located in the blooming Príncipe Real area, it is one of very few luxury boutiques in Lisbon that boast a selection of more niche, researched brands, such as Comme des Garçons, Sophie D’Hoore, Ter et Bantine, Hache, etc. When it comes to concept stores, Lisbon is slightly behind cities such as London (Dover Street Market), Paris (Colette) and Milan (10 Corso Como), which is to be […]

The Space Race: Fashion in Sci-Fi Filmmaking

comment 1

With the economic boom following the second World War, the United States found a new rival almost immediately in the USSR, spawning the Cold War which lasted throughout most of the 20th century. The so called ‘weapons race’ and Cuban missile crysis may have been peaks of the tension, but the two blocks were competing in more than just purely military areas. Science was one of them – and so came the famous space race. […]

When You’re Alone

Leave a comment

If we were to look past the possibilities of chemical experiments taken to an extreme (or acts of magic and potion-making) and focus solely on the factual present, we’d probably come to believe that alcohol is our very own truth serum. Friends forbid you from calling or texting the person you like when you’re drunk – because everyone knows you’ll be honest, maybe too honest, when you’re not quite in control of yourself. Lately I’ve […]

All About the Boy

The masculine look, pioneered by power-couple Marlene Dietrich and Giorgio Armani in Dietrich’s heyday, is not, contrary to common thought, a simple staple ‘trend’. In fact, when Armani helped create the iconic actress’s equally particular wardrobe, it beat down the rules of femininity expected to be followed by any on-screen heroine. The beautiful women on screen were meant to be objects of desire for men and aspirational for women; inspiring women to wear long trousers […]

“Bonnie and Clyde” – Blurring Fashion Timelines

Articles / Fashion

Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow formed one of the most notorious couples and criminal duos in the history of mankind. The history of their short-lived career and relationship is dramatically told in Arthur Penn’s 1967 film aptly named “Bonnie and Clyde”, with Faye Dunaway and the charming Warren Beatty front and centre. They weren’t the only well-loved bad guys of their time though – the economical depression of the 1930s following the Wall Street crash […]
