Manchester by the Sea

Manchester by the Sea is this year’s standout film, and probably of the biggest contenders for the Best Picture award at the Oscars. Manchester by the Sea é o filme sensação do ano e provavelmente um dos maiores concorrentes para o Oscar de Melhor Filme. I went to watch it last weekend, and came out of the theatre feeling mostly confused. The truth is, it took me a few minutes thinking about what I’d just seen (and a couple of messages to my friends going “I’m pretty sure I missed something”) for the film to sink in, and for me…

My mini mini Mansur Gavriel

I’ve been a huge handbag lover for years now – and a bit of a hoarder of them until I decided to sell most of them online recently. Há anos que sou uma grande fã de malas – e quase coleccionadora delas até recentemente ter decidido vender a maior parte das que tinha online. Some of the handbags that had been catching my eye for some time were the Mansur Gavriel bucket bags – those ones that became overnight cult items and were sold out all the time, everywhere.

Lucky Cat T-shirt

If you saw my Christmas Gift Guide a while back, you’ll have seen that I mentioned the beautiful Maison Labiche t-shirts, particularly those with a polaroid camera and a lucky cat embroidered.

Tive imensa sorte de encontrar uma debaixo da árvore de Natal e então pensei mostrar-vos mais.…

Luckily, through the Cineworld Unlimited Card, I got to watch it a few days earlier, last Sunday to be precise. Here are my thoughts… Por sorte, através de um cartão de fidelidade com os cinemas Cineworld, pude ver o filme uns dias mais cedo, no último domingo para ser mais específica. Aqui fica o…

Revisiting Gilmore Girls

I remember starting to watch Gilmore Girls years ago, and thinking to myself how much I both identified with, and at the same time wanted to be more like, Rory Gilmore. Lembro-me de começar a ver a série Gilmore Girls há anos e de pensar para mim como me identificava com, e ao mesmo tempo queria ser mais como, a Rory Gilmore.    I related to her love of books, her passion for writing and journalism, her shy nature, her awkwardness and, in a few ways, her boy drama. Identificava-me com o amor dela pelos livros, a sua paixão pela…
