Ten things about me
I have a twin sister! -Her name is Barbara, but everyone knows her as Barbie, or as I like to call her, my Barbie doll. (No we’re not identical)
I was born and raised in New York City. -Though sometimes I wish I had been raised out in the country surrounded by nothing but green grass and fresh air, you can’t really complain about New York City, right?
Portuguese is my first language. -My parents are from Brazil and I was fortunate enough to spend every summer there during my childhood.
The only animal I had growing up were birds. -Barbie and I were never creative enough to come up with new names, so every bird we had was named, Kiko.
I grew up eating extremely healthy; snacks were baby carrots and grapes. -Since being with my boyfriend (my chef) the past 6 months, he has exposed me to all things deliciousness! (Not necessarily healthy). But I recently had my first Hot Pocket, Corn-dogs, Ego Waffles and my favorite, breakfast burritos! (I believe it’s okay to indulge every once in a while).
Traveling has always been a passion. – I’ve been to most states on the East Coast, and now that I have found someone who’s just as passionate (if not more), I couldn’t be more excited to travel with him!
I’d chose staying in drinking wine, and playing board games over going to a club any day of the week.
Day or night, you can find me wearing dark lipstick; I absolutely love a dark plum color for any occasion. I can leave the house without any makeup on except lipstick, that’s an everyday must.
I take up tons of craft, DIY projects, and other creative things, only to leave them half finished and botched up- this is something I’m working on!
My love for fashion started from a very early age and my mom has always been my inspiration. -Growing up I would play “model”; raid my mother’s closet, and catwalk down the hallway like the next Adriana Lima.
Standing short at only 5’1” I know I will never be the next Adriana, so this blog is the best I can do.
