And after years, I finally return!

So many things happened since I last wrote in here. So many things changed as well. 

Last Tuesday I finally quit my job. I say "finally" because I have been complaining about it for years. Years my people! 

Please don't get me wrong, it was not a terrible job, the kind you have to use extreme physical force, or clean really disgusting things out of even more disgusting areas. No, it was not.  I worked in a beautiful office, with floor to ceiling windows and a gorgeous view of trees, that went as far as the eyes could see. It was clean and calm sometimes, it was messy and loud others. Just like any other office. Most of my coworkers were there since day one with me, and I loved most of them. Most. Not all. 

Sometimes, like in my case, it is necessary to break the "everything is pretty and ok goggles" to actually see reality. And reality was another story in there. Nothing was as pretty, nothing was as calm. It seemed, for me,  that there were two realities. One that everyone most people, if I say so, in the world lives in. The other, was only lived in the office. Odd, hun? 

Saying "I quit" out loud felt as if I said a bad word. Like a curse word. I felt terrible. I cried. I broke myself into pieces to let that word out of me. But it finally got out. And then I  understood that my "job" had me chained to values and customs that were not mine; I needed freedom from it. 

So I finally let it go.

London Review

More than a million lined the banks of the River Thames Sunday, braving London’s rainy chill to cheer on the Queen Elizabeth II's 60-year reign and catch a glimpse of Her Majesty’s royal barge, as it made its way downriver. It might have rained on her parade in biblical torrents, but nothing spoiled a seamlessly organized, all-inclusive four-day British party celebrating the reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Here are  a few favorite pics:

Fall Colors

Hoje acordei com vontade de pintar as unhas com um esmalte clarinho. O que é de estranhar, já que faz muito tempo que só uso esmaltes escuros. Aí lembrei que ontem eu estava lendo um artigo na Pantone (Fall 2012: The Magic of Color) e fiquei de boca aberta em ver as cores que estarão por aí no outono. Lindas! O artigo era sobre as cores do outono com referências as coleções de vários estilistas. Achei show. Principalmente porque algumas cores são tons mais escuros das cores do verão. 

As cores:



Amei a Bright Chartreuse! Provavelmente no Brasil já deve ser possível comprar roupas e acessórios nesses tons. Eu não estou com a menor pressa de ver essas cores nas vitrines aqui (apesar de serem lindas!). Mas ainda quero curtir muito a primavera e o verão, que ainda nem começou!

E para unir o útil ao agradável, aqui estão algumas opções de esmaltes nesses tons: 



Bjo!
