Half & Half

Hi! It is too hot to put on clothes so I just did my makeup in my usual spot (right in front of my windows) in my underwear. Just hoping all my neighbors in the huge apartment buildings across from me haven’t taken too much notice of my inability dress myself right after a shower haha. Yesterday I met Leah at Praça XV. There was a special event going on there this weekend and we got to see so many amazing performers including Xênia França, who I have been listening to all morning. She gives me SZA vibes! There was also an all-girls rap group and rap battles going on in the street. We didn’t stay out that late but I slept over ten hours this morning. Have a great Monday everyone! I hope you had a nice weekend too <3. 

Oi! É quente demais para colocar roupas, então eu só fiz minha maquiagem no meu lugar de sempre (bem na frente das minhas janelas) na minha calcinha. Apenas esperando que todos os meus vizinhos nos enormes prédios de apartamentos em frente a mim não tenham tomado muito conhecimento da minha incapacidade de me vestir logo após o banho, rsrs. Ontem conheci a Leah na Praça XV. Houve um evento especial acontecendo neste final de semana e tivemos a oportunidade de ver tantos artistas incríveis, incluindo Xênia França, que eu tenho ouvido a manhã toda. Confira ela!! Houve também um grupo de rap de meninas e batalhas de rap acontecendo na rua. Nós não ficamos fora tão tarde, mas eu dormi mais de dez horas esta manhã. Tenha uma ótima segunda-feira a todos! Espero que você tenha tido um bom final de semana também <3.

Happy Friday folks! Today is my Sunday so-to-speak. There are free yoga classes outside overlooking the ocean every weekday at 11 in Long Beach and I've been going on my days off for the past month. It's becoming a bit of a habit which is nice.  I brought my computer and some documents with me so I could do my taxes at a coffee shop afterwards but I just realized I'm missing a W-2 form so I'll blog now ... do taxes later. I was scheduled last week for eight days straight and I was SO tired by the end of the week. I feel like I still need more sleep. Maybe nap then taxes ;). 


Boa tarde my sweets! Today is my second day off and it has been a very productive 'weekend' on the home decor front. I had three big tasks to take care of: 1. repot SIX plants (some were new and some had outgrown their pots) 2. assemble my NEW COUCH (loveseat), and 3. repaint the frames of the four paintings I got at the flea market last month. I can check them all off my list! I'm just waiting for the frames to dry in the backyard right now. It was quite windy today and getting the newspaper to not blow away was a feat, as well as getting the spray to not just blow into the wind. I accidentally painted a little of my adidas slides because the wind was blowing my direction at one point. But if they're going to be any color, I'm happy they're a little gold! My plans for the rest of the evening are to go see a movie kind of late. I may be a bit sleepy for work tomorrow.

Hello! Happy Friday! I just got back home from the chiropractor. Anyone who knows me knows how much I crave my back cracked so the chiropractor is more of a treat than a chore. I sprained my neck a few days ago and it was still not feeling healed so I had an expert take a look. My whole neck has felt warm since I left the appointment ... maybe it got the blood flowing again! Anyways, tomorrow is the annual Women's March in DTLA and I am going with my friends Meg and Joeye. I didn't go last year and was a bit embarrassed about it so I requested the day off this year and made a plan to get myself there! With all the sexual harassment and assault cases that have been brought to light this past year, I feel that it's super important to show face and support other women! I'm bringing my old camera with me and am hoping for some great, inspiring photos to share here. Stay tuned.
