As I am

A composed image of mine in still position. Tackling about numbers in the calendar, this is my last year. Definitely not taking ageing and humanity negatively. Less of dense make-up and photoshop here I am representing my natural self - confident in my own skin. Photos lensed by dear Jose Eduardo Bacci.

Cheers to 2nd year of passione da vida!!!

Natural Yogurt Cake

With all cake recipes available on countless baking websites it is hard to select the best ones. The best way to get a recipe is from someone who has baked a cake you have actually tasted and pigged. In this particular recipe it was Ms. Cassia from whom I´ve learned the recipe. A simple moist cake that uses natural yogurt instead of ordinary milk. 

1 cup (170g) natural yogurt
4 eggs
2 cups flour
2 cups refined white sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbs baking powder

Note: Use yogurt cup which is 170g to measure the ingredients

Mix all the above ingredients using a blender for 5 mins
Pour the batter in a baking pan (basic baking procedure: spread and sprinkled with butter and flour respectively all over). My cake got a brown color as I sprinkled chocolate powder instead flour in the pan.
Place in a pre-heated oven for 45 mins in 180-210 degrees.

Now I have this cake recipe I can count on and a blog to keep recipes I can´t lose.

the original recipe that Cassia gave me

3. Boticario Intense Lipstick Matte Effect (131) - as a base for clinique lipstick from the palette above, Brazil R$ 14,00.

Aside from the above products I also use Maybelline Mascara (volume) and Payot Black Eyeliner Pencil (apply quite thinly).

Timeless Piece

First worn in November of 2008 for a friend´s wedding in the Philippines, this stripe dress has been gracing my closet and several events since then. Can you remember this post when I used it as a skirt? It´s just one of those pieces I could not dispose. Love how it hugs my bod, timeless design and color, and a type of fabric that does not get old - this dress is everything.

Primeiro usado em novembro de 2008 para o casamento de um amigo nas Filipinas, Este vestido listrado enfeitando meu armário e vários eventos desde então. Você consegue se lembrar este post quando eu usei-o como uma saia? É apenas uma dessas peças não poderia dispor. Amar como ele abraça o meu corpo, cor e estilo eterno, e um tipo de tecido que não envelhece - esse vestido é tudo.
