I want to be a pirate
A pirates life for me
All my friends are pirates
And sail the b. b. sea
I’ve got a jolly roger
Its black and white and vast
Get out of your skull and crossbones
And I’ll run it up your mast
The Pirate Song by George Harrison
After this months of terrible grey and wet sky here in Portugal, today the sun is shining and the weather is really warm… and it feels like it make us awake from the depressive and lethargic state that came’s with long periods of uncolored days. I’ve always been a very much influenced by nature and weather person, and sometimes the Autumn/Winter seasons are really hard to go through, but I think we all have to learn to live with our own ghosts, isn’t it?
I thought a lot about share it or not on my blog, but then I thought that I am the way I am and my blog reflects me as a person, so… A few years ago I was diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. I never speak about it with anybody but my doctor, my mom and my boyfriend. And anyone else knows. I don’t know if it’s ok not talk about that, I don’t know if I should… but the truth is that most of the times I don’t have the enough confidence in myself to talk. And I always think I’m boring people with my problems… so, I prefer repress my speech and shut my mouth up. Today, maybe because the sun is shining again, I felt like I had to tell someone.
This photos were taken by my brother last summer in a party with friends and this is a big friend of mine, one of the since-ever-friends of my life, Celso. Hope you enjoy, ’cause I really loved discover this images in my archives and see how much I was doing great last year and how much this party was funny. But… the sun is shining again outside…
Hi my dear readers ^_^
I’ve been trying to make this post from a while ago, but It has been quite hard to me, once I had to finish my dissertation. And I finished. And it was quite hard. But , hey, that’s the way it is.
So, despite everyone around me already know this, I couldn’t pass without post this on my blog: I TAKE MY BRACES OFF, LOVELY PEOPLE!!! ^_^
No need to say that after two and an half years it was an huge relief… And I’m pretty happy with the result, though the treatment isn’t complete yet and I’ve to use removable braces to sleep.
I know I never avoided smiling because of the braces, I’m truly an easy smile person, but now I feel a bit more confident and I feel my smile prettier… at least I’m not a mouth full of metal anymore ^_^

Until now, I had no opportunity to wish you an happy new year, but here I am to do it! ^ _ ^
I wish you all, my dear readers, a great year, full of joy and realized dreams, full of love, life and peace on your hearts.
You know, from a few years ago until now, I stopped taking major decisions or making lists of new year, (I never was a planning girl though)… but the truth is that had changed this year… and I don’t have no clue why the hell that happened… The plans simply came into my mind and I felt those are my year tasks. They are reaaaally few, but reaaally huges… so, God help me hahaha
I’ve been on the final phase of my dissertation (I know, it’s some kind of never ending story, but we’re talking here of a theology dissertation so in my college we’ve two years to write our own bible :P) and I’ve lot’s of photos to edit and post but my time is too short this days and my blog have been a bit abandoned.
I went to my hometown for Christmas, being with mom, dad, granny, pets and friends which was really cool, and in new year I went to north of portugal, to a cool hotel in a middle of a splendid forest which was one of the bests nye’s of my life.
As usually, I don’t want that my first post of the year be something that you already have seen, so I’ll not make any retrospective or anything like that, I just want to share with you some little glimpses of some magical landscapes… I think that this forest tells a story just for itself, don’t you think?
Well, I don’t want to finish my post without thank to every single one of you for your support. To the ones who always follow my posts via wordpress, bloglovin, lookbook, chictopia, facebook or tumblr. Even when you not comment and you just visit my blog it’s an huge honor and an huge pleasure to me, so I thank you really much, my dears. For those who always have a word of support, of affection, of advice, of teaching… For those which I already consider my blogger friends from this almost 3 years I give all my gratitude. You’re girls that I admire too much and it’s an honor to me that you girls continue visiting my little space here. Thank you so, so much my loves Natalia; Petite and Nicole.
