Autumn Recommendations

Hello guys! The very best season of the year has already started. Do you like autumn? Anyways, this one will be very different from our previous autumns due to the pandemic. On the bright side, the mask will keep us warm!



For me, this season is absolutely the best. Where you get to have those sundays on pyjamas watching movies in bed while it's raining. Sweater weather is absolutely the best, so cozy, what's not to love? These were some of the doodles I did autumn related.


I really feel the need to say that I'm writing this post listening to Ariana Grande and her new single "positions". Take the hint.


First of all, let me tell you about my day. I don't have classes on Friday so I was at home the entire day except for groceries and getting my nails done (@newritualspa in Senhora da Hora). Even though I have asthma, I try to wear a mask outside for as long as I can (it's really the most important thing to do). So if you see me like this say hi. Also my nails look so amazing, they never disappoint me!



Anyways, today, apart from sleeping next to my sister working, I cleaned up my room, chose a cute outfit and spent a bit of time on my garden. I'm feeling my outfit soo much today. I'm wearing vans and a dress from Pull & Bear that I got yesterday and I'm absolutely in love with. It's the definition of cozy, buy it here, my size is XS.



Other than this blog post and working on privacy policies the whole afternoon for Belle's Living today, I made lunch for my dad. It's a recipe from Pingo Doce's book. Tuna!

I'm really glad he loved it, it was so fun to do.



Last, but not least, my sister took me some pics working for my baby!


Onto recommendations!


At home activities:


It's better for us to stay home at this point, so let's remember the fun things you can do at home with your family!


  1. Have you tried cooking? My boyfriend is probably laughing right now because he suggested me to do it, but I didn't because I don't like cooking. I don't but today it was weirdly therapeutical. Following a recipe and then looking at what you've done is amazing. However I suggest cakes so you can eat them happily afterwards.

  2. Another thing I love to do at home is playing games with my family. There's so many ways to stay away from social media for a while and appreciate your loved ones company. Uno, Monopoly, Cards Against Humanity, Trivial. Even on playstation you have Singstar and Buzz. It's Friday night so get you family to do one of these! There are also some games I love you can play alone: Tapped Out, Sims, Among Us (with your friends too), Solitaire, like actual solitaire, with cards.

  3. Clean up. This is weirdly satisfying, at least for me. I love to have my room always super clean and aesthetic to feel good with myself.

  4. Skype with your friends. I know, it isn't the same as going out, but it's the most responsible way of hanging out now. There's so many things you can do apart from each other, so many games!

Music Recommendations:


Today was a big day when it comes to new music. Ariana Grande has a new single that I'm listening on repeat and Ashton Irwin from 5SOS just got an album out that is amazing! I've found some pretty good musics lately, don't worry, I'll leave here my October playlist.
