For the home

It has been a long time since my last post, life has been hectic, and.. well, I've been lazy.
No classes for a week now, it feels so good to have my old routine back! I mean, sleeping through weekends and not having to go to Lisbon every day... But, soon this laziness must be stopped, as I have 9 papers due next month, and one exam coming soon...

Some things have happen these last few days, some of them good, some of them not so good, but the greatest thing was getting my Secret Santa Gift from the EST team, my Secret Santa was Matchstickgirl aka Enchantedpond, and she sent me my favorite photograph from her shop, I LOVE IT!!!
I'm going to take pictures, I promise, but I tried and all of them came out blurry!
I'm going to hang my photo in my future house. And speaking of houses, today was furniture picking day and so I felt inspired to select a few of my favorites "for home".

I'll be back soon, I promise.
And sorry, no Portuguese this time, I told you, this laziness..

I love tea pots!

I also like to drink coffee.. :)

I also want to show you some tables and other decor for the home, but that's going to be a next time, I have to go to bed...

Há algum tempo atrás, fui contactada pela Scaparate, uma revista online Argentina, que pedia permissão para usar as minhas fotografias para publicação na revista.
Fiquei entusiasmada porque nunca me tinha acontecido algo do género!
A revista saiu dia 1 de Dezembro, está em Espanhol, mas tem artigos muito interessantes de criadores jovens e fora do mainstream.

E eu apareço várias vezes ;)

Some time ago, I was contacted by Scaparate, an Argentinian online fashion magazine.
They asked permission to use my
photos for their publication.

I was so excited! This is the first time something like this happens to me, it's so much fun!

The magazine was out on the December 1st, it's in Spanish, but you can find some great items from young and non mainstream designers!

Saudades do Verão

No Domingo esteve um excelente dia solarengo de Outono, e fui passear um bocadinho pela praia para ver o mar. Que saudades do Verão.. *suspiro*
Aproveitei e tirei umas fotos a uma nova pregadeira, para aproveitar a luz! Encontrei este excelente fundo, um dos pinos de madeira que protege as arribas!
É a minha pregadeira Bola Mágica, as semi-circunferências giram, e pode ser usado a gosto!

It was a great sunny Autumn day on Sunday, so I went to see the Ocean. I miss Summer so much.. *sigh*
I took my camera with me and took some photos of my new brooch. Found this amazing background, a wooden thingy (don't know how to say it in english, sorry), that protects us from falling down the rocks.
It's my Magic Ball Brooch (thank you Inger, for the title!). The knitted capsules move, so you can wear it as you like!

E agora para algo completamente diferente *

Foto por Cat :)

Esta foto foi tirada no princípio do ano de 2001, quando as máquinas fotográficas digitais ainda não eram tão comuns como as convencionais (daí o pequeno defeito de fim de rolo).

Lembrei-me desta foto ontem e fui procurá-la.
Esta foto lembra-me uma altura crítica durante o curso de Geologia, quando eu e mais 4 colegas fomos largadas no Cabeço de Montachique a fazer a cadeira de Geologia de Campo II.

Esta foto lembra-me o que significa ser Geólogo, por motivos emocionais que não vou explorar aqui.
E porque às vezes as circunstâncias obrigam-nos a dar valor a certas coisas que anteriormente não davamos, ultimamente tenho-me apercebido do quanto gosto da Geologia.

Agora, que estou num mundo diferente e vou ser Engenheira Geóloga e de Minas no papel, posso dizer com toda a certeza do mundo que nunca vou deixar de ser Geóloga, com todo o orgulho que esta frase possa representar :)

* And now for something completely different:

This picture was taken in the beginning of the year 2001, when digital cameras were more rare than the conventional ones (and that's why you see this was the end of the film).

Yesterday I remembered this photo and went looking for it.
This photo reminds me a hard time during my Geology degree, when me and 4 girlfriends were "dropped" in the middle of the woods for 4 months for a discipline called Field Geology II.

This photo reminds me what it means to be a Geologist, for emotional reasons I'm not going to explore here.
And because sometimes the circumstances make you to see things from another point of view, lately I'm finding out again why I love Geology so much.

Now that I'm in a completely different world and that soon I'll be a Geological and Mining Engineer, I can say, with all the certainty of the world, that I'll never stop being a Geologist, with all the pride and joy I can have.
