vintage shoes: would you wear?

Do you guys usually wear vintage clothes? What about vintage shoes? In the last few days I came across a few adorable vintage shoes (check them out ) and I started to think about the whole vintage approach to life. Are you inspired by vintage fashion and design? Or do you prefer more modern approaches?

table inspiration: Mad Hatter

If you always wanted to decorate amazing party tables, but lacks the inspiration, you should take a look at some of BHLDN’s ideas. My favorite theme was this one, inspired by the Mad Hatter. Isn’t wonderful? A few essencial items:

1. Dotted shoppe straws.
2. Handmade papered Camelia.
3. Cake-to-go boxes.
4. High-Spirited garland.

*Remember my other post inspired by the beauties of BHLDN?*

Roger&Gallet event – Fleur d’Osmanthus

Last thursday I went to the launch of Roger&Gallet‘s new fragrance – Fleur d’Osmanthus, known as “the fragrance of hapinnes”. The event took place in Miam Miam, a delicious restaurant here in Rio de Janeiro and brought together a group of local bloggers. A few pics of our happy hour:

The scent of the Osmanthus flower – found in the Guilin region in China – is known to relieve stress and induce a good mood. Besides, it has a wondeful smell! I highly recommend it and all the options are delicious: the cologne (30ml and 100ml), soap (individual and kit with 3 units) and moisturizer. It’s a must have!

The Fleur d’Osmanthus line definitely entered my list of favorite products, along with the Rose and Gingembre (ginger) lines, all from Roger&Gallet. Thanks to the L’Oréal team (very helpful and lovely girls) for the invitation and the incredible kit!
