Something Saturday

Dress - Forever 21

Hey babes! It is a beautiful Saturday afternoon. I stayed up late chatting and drinking wine with Ana so I slept in this morning. It was supposed to be rainy today but at the moment it is hot and all blue skies! You never know with the tropics though. It could be pouring in 20 minutes. I started a gym membership this week and I’ve been feeling so good. I took about a month off after I moved out of Long Beach and I thought that maybe walking in the mornings and going to dance twice a week would be sufficient. I was wrong haha! I was feeling so antsy. One day I walked three miles to dance class, took an hour and a half class, and then walked home and still wasn’t sore the next day. That’s when I decided to get a membership … which was a bit tricky without a CPF (Brazilian ID number). The walk there is so pretty too so I’m getting my morning walk AND some sore glutes, so I’m happy! Hope you have a lovely Saturday! 

Ei babes! É uma linda tarde de sábado. Eu fiquei acordada até tarde conversando e bebendo vinho com Ana, então dormi esta manhã. Era suposto estar chuvoso hoje mas no momento está quente e todo o céu azul! Você nunca sabe com os trópicos embora. Pode estar derramando em 20 minutos. Eu comecei uma associação de academia esta semana e estou me sentindo muito bem. Eu levei cerca de um mês de folga depois que eu saí de Long Beach e pensei que talvez andar de manhã e ir dançar duas vezes por semana seria suficiente. Eu estava errado haha! Eu estava me sentindo tão ansioso. Um dia eu andei três milhas até a aula de dança, levei uma hora e meia e depois fui para casa e ainda não estava dolorido no dia seguinte. Foi aí que decidi conseguir uma assinatura ... o que foi um pouco complicado sem um CPF (número de identidade brasileiro). A caminhada até lá é tão bonita, então eu estou fazendo minha caminhada matinal e alguns glúteos doloridos, então estou feliz! Espero que você tenha um lindo sábado!



Spring Mood Board

The new Instagram feature where you can save photos has quickly turned into a mood board. Scrolling through, I started to realize how cohesive my photos and interests are and thought they would make a nice collage to share. I hope these images inspire you as they've inspired me! There is a lot about social media that doesn't sit right with me but the ability to share and have access to inspirational art is undeniable. 



Gypsy Summer

Jacket - Zara | Swimsuit - Myra Swim | Choker - Lulus

Yup, a little sneak preview of the new place! I have been without internet this week (it's getting installed on Friday!) so I've been exploring the local coffee shop scene and renting movies to watch while I unpack. Today the maintenance guy fixed my closet bar so I can finally hang up my dresses. I now have two whole closets and I honestly don't know how I fit all these clothes in just one. I have SO many clothes and shoes. Not complaining but damn is it a bitch to move it all and reorganize! I've been traveling around all summer and living out of a suitcase so it's been like Xmas discovering all the things I've missed wearing and looking at. My place feels amazing. I think I am appreciative of what I have in a bigger and deeper way than ever before. Crazy how the universe just finds a way to teach you exactly what you need to understand.

Good omen update: when I was driving the Uhaul to my place for the first time, a monarch butterfly flew up the hood and then up the windshield. My family's Native culture believes that monarchs are a powerful sign of good luck, and I'd say so. I'm used to feeling lucky but these last few months put that in check a little bit. I think it's made me grateful for the good things rather than just expecting them. I didn't realize how entitled that expectation is/was until now. I'm glad for the lesson(s).

Gratefully yours,
