Meu Cantinho de Trabalho Repaginado

   Quem me acompanha no youtube viu que agora tenho um novo cantinho de trabalho. Mostrei todo o processo de decoração em vários vídeos, mas senti falta de fazer um post contando tudo sobre ele. Queria mostrar cada cantinho em detalhes, explicando o que pensei para cada um deles. 

Meu Cantinho de Trabalho

   Vamos começar por esse cantinho que deu o que falar pois todo mundo queria saber de onde era esse móvel retrô lindo. Comprei esse rack no site da Casas Bahia, paguei R$296,79 e a entrega foi super rápida e pontual.

   Fui pesquisar no site e infelizmente não tem mais dele. Vou deixar o link de onde comprei e tem vários modelos (aqui). Optei por colocar duas cestinhas amarelas pra dar um toque de cor. Também posso usar para guardar tintas e outras coisas que uso nos vídeos de DIY.

   Na parte de baixo coloquei umas caixas transparentes com várias coisas que uso nas gravações de vídeos. Algumas pessoas comentaram que ficou feio, mas como não tinha outro lugar pra guardar ficaram ali mesmo.

Meu Cantinho de Trabalho Decoração

   Em um dos cantos do rack coloquei minha placa de 100 mil inscritos no youtube. Coloquei um relógio que comprei na Caçula e um porta velas que eu mesma fiz. Passando por trás um led de borboletas que comprei na Vivian Festas em Caxias.

   No outro canto coloquei uma jarra (que era de vidro transparente e pintei de prata), uma bandeja que eu fiz usando um espelho (aqui) e coloquei alguns itens em cima pra decorar (espelho, bomboniere e um cupcake onde guardo cartões de memória e baterias extras). 

cantinho de trabalho decoração quadros

   A parede foi o ponto chave da decoração pois ela era bege e apliquei papel contact (isso mesmo) em toda ela e ficou linda.

   Queria colocar papel de parede, mas ia ficar muito caro (gastei R$60 em contact). Escolhi essa estampa de listras que tinha tudo a ver com o que queria para o cantinho de trabalho e foi bem fácil de aplicar. Os quadrinhos eu mesma fiz a arte no computador e montei do jeito que eu queria (veja aqui e aqui).

cantinho de trabalho decoração prateleiras

   Nessa parede já havia duas prateleiras mas eram escuras, então para não deixar o furo aparecendo optei por colocar outras prateleiras na cor branca.

   Pra decorar comprei algumas coisinhas na Vivian Festas e também coloquei essa árvore de fotos que fiz para o dia dos namorados (aqui).

   Para dividir os ambientes coloquei essa cortina cinza meio transparente mas que deu todo um charme e ficou bem leve. Também comprei no Chinatown e paguei R$69,90. O incrível foi que ela parece ter sido feita sob medida para aquele espaço, não precisei mexer em nada.

Mesa do Meu Cantinho de Trabalho

cantinho de trabalho mesa

   Meu local preferido no meu cantinho de trabalho é essa mesinha pois é onde passo a maior parte do meu tempo. Comprei no Shopping Matriz (aqui), o gaveteiro (aqui) e o banco também comprei lá e paguei R$89 se não me engano. A lixeirinha comprei no Chinatown e paguei R$10 eu acho haha.

cantinho de trabalho mesa de trabalho

   Algumas pessoas comentaram no vídeo que eu poderia ter decorado um pouco mais a mesa. Como ela é um espaço de trabalho onde gravo vídeos de DIY, não quis colocar muita coisa pra não ter o trabalho de ficar tirando e colocando tudo cada vez que fosse gravar. Deixo apenas coisas básicas e produtos que estou fotografando.

   Poderia ter colocado a mesa na parede onde tem um basculante, mas optei por colocar em frente ao rack para ter um local de apoio na hora das gravações, sem perder o cenário de fundo. E ela estando no meio me facilita na gravação dos vídeos porque posso colocar o tripé e os softbox atrás da mesa e ficar na frente dela, como uma bancada de telejornal haha.

   Espero muito que tenham gostado do meu cantinho novo e também das dicas que trouxe nesse post. Não deixem de comentar contando o que acharam e se quiserem, me deixem sugestões que vou adorar. Beijos!

 

Como Organizei a Pool Party da Júlia

   Hoje vim contar pra vocês como organizei a Pool Party da Júlia. Quem me acompanha no youtube viu que fui mostrando todo o processo, desde as comprinhas até o dia da festa. Mas os detalhes eu deixei pra contar aqui, em um post explicativo. 

   A Júlia havia me dito que queria fazer um churrasco e convidar alguns amigos no aniversário dela, então pensei: porque não uma festa na piscina?

Cenário da Pool Party

   Se você não tem piscina em casa não se preocupe. Você pode alugar um local como um sítio, um clube, ou até mesmo a casa de um amigo ou parente que tenha. No meu caso eu tenho, e mesmo sendo pequena atendeu super bem.

Lista de Convidados

   Com o local definido é hora de fazer a lista de convidados e escolher a decoração. Pesquisei sobre o tema na internet e fui salvando fotos das ideias que mais gostava pra depois escolher e comprar o que fosse preciso pra fazer.

   Uma coisa que fica bem legal na decoração são balões, e mesmo muita gente dizendo que ficaria infantil, no final ficou tudo bem legal.

Decoração da Pool Party

   Na área da piscina coloquei duas espreguiçadeiras com uma mesinha de apoio e um jogo de mesa com 4 cadeiras. Usei as mesas para dispor tolhas e protetores solares, ambos com guarda-sol. Sempre tem algum convidado que quer aproveitar o espaço pra sentar e conversar à sombra.

    Também usei e abusei das bóias e flutuadores, acho que dão um colorido bem divertido. E também são ótimas para fazer fotos divertidas.

  E claro, não poderia faltar os cenários pra foto. Então coloquei esteiras de praia decoradas com boias, guarda-sois e algumas almofadas temáticas que eu mesma fiz (aqui).

O que Servir na Pool Party

   Como era uma Pool Party, o certo é que fosse comemorada durante o dia. Marcamos o início para às 13 horas e oferecemos churrasco no almoço (carne, frango, linguiça, acompanhados de arroz branco, farofa e molho à campanha). Pra isso comprei pratos, copos e talheres em acrílico, aqueles mais durinhos pra facilitar o manuseio. E de bebida foi oferecido refrigerantes em vários sabores.

Mesa de Petiscos

   Depois do almoço foi montada uma tenda com uma mesa onde disponibilizei vários tipos de lanches para que se servissem na hora que quisessem. Foram oferecidos: Mini Sanduíche Natural, Salgadinhos (Batatinhas Ruffles, Doritos e Cheetos) que foram colocados em baldinhos de praia, Espetinhos de Frutas, Chocolates em formato de peixinho (não consegui tirar foto mas aparecem no vídeo), Marshmallows e Suco de Laranja Natural bem geladinho.

   Pra dar um ar mais alegre comprei copos em acrílico coloridos (que personalizei para a festa) e canudos divertidos. Também fiz sorvete (morango, chocolate e creme), comprei calda de morango e chocolate, confeitos coloridos e amendoim moído pra colocar em cima do sorvete (não deu tempo de tirar fotos rsrs).

Hora do Parabéns na Pool Party

   O bolo foi temático e personalizado, tinha tudo a ver com o tema da festa. Quem fez foi a Camila Poggian (21 98904- 5660), paguei R$140. Estava lindo e uma delícia. Não pedi um bolo muito grande porque eram poucos convidados, esse era de 50 fatias e serviu super bem, até sobrou.

   A Pool Party foi preparada para 35 convidados mas comparecem 25 no total. Pra mim foi muito bom (imaginem 35 pessoas dentro de uma piscina pequena rsrs). Mas como sou um pouquinho exagerada acabo sempre comprando coisas demais. Aquele pensamento de que é melhor sobrar que faltar. Se vocês não forem como eu, podem comprar tudo na quantidade certa, e com isso economizar um pouco.

Pool Party da Júlia amigos

   Não sei precisar ao certo o quanto foi gasto na festa porque fui comprando aos poucos. Muitas das coisas que comprei (como espreguiçadeiras e guarda-sol) foram usadas na festa mas eu já ia comprar mesmo pra deixar na área da piscina. Mas se for chutar um valor eu diria que a Pool Party ficou entre R$1000 e R$1200. Isso somando a comida (churrasco, petiscos, refrigerante) e todo o resto que comprei (talheres, copos, decoração).

   Como disse eu sou meio exagerada e muitas das coisas que comprei acabou sobrando. Foram bolas, refrigerantes e até mesmo comida (que acabei mandando pra casa da minha mãe porque ia viajar em seguida).

   Graças a Deus deu tudo certo na Pool Party e até o sol apareceu, mesmo depois de ter chovido à noite. E apesar de alguns imprevistos que contei no vídeo foi tudo lindo e a garotada se divertiu até as 11 da noite. Se quiser assistir aos vídeos relacionados à festa, criei uma playlist, é só clicar aqui.

   Espero que tenham gostado e qualquer dúvida é só deixar aqui nos comentários. Beijos!!!

6 Days, 10 Looks: See Alexa Chung’s Best Fashion Week Outfits

There are many elements of Charlotte D’Alessio’s life that read like a teenager’s fairy tale. Instagram didn’t exist when I was in high school, but I imagine I’d be pretty fascinated by the beautiful, leggy 17-year-old with more than 174,000 followers and a Wilhelmina Models contract, too. For the legions of aspiring Cool Teens™, D’Alessio, who has been modeling full-time for the last year, is living the dream — though her Cinderella story has been anything but conventional.

At Coachella in 2015, pictures of D’Alessio (above, right) and her friend, 18-year-old model Josie Canseco (left), flooded the Internet, winding up on places like the festival’s official Twitter and The Cobra Snake’s Instagram, among others. BuzzFeed spoke to D’Alessio soon after, resulting in a viral article that has since garnered 1,479,600 views. Wilhelmina reached out to D’Alessio from there, and the rest is history. In the 12 months since D’Alessio was discovered, the Canada native has landed a slew of commercial campaigns, left Beverly Hills High School to pursue homeschooling and launched a YouTube channel with her friend and fellow model, Abby Champion. And with a secret project in the works for this summer, I imagine that D’Alessio’s stake in the California modeling pantheon will only deepen.

On the eve of Coachella 2016’s first weekend, I hopped on the phone with D’Alessio to get caught up on the last year of her life, from her social media strategy to her dream campaign.

 

You obviously gained a lot of attention at Coachella last year. What can you tell me about your experience there?

I went with my friend Josie — it was my first year going — and we barely took photos. I think we took 10 photos, but people really responded to them. They ended up everywhere. I saw them on Facebook, and not just [from] friends, but random people posting them. And then The Weeknd and the Coachella Twitter reposted [one of their photos]. It was so surreal because I was just a normal girl from Canada who was going to Coachella. I had, like, 16,000 [Instagram] followers, and now it’s [174,000].

Coachella really got me started in modeling. Wilhelmina reached out to me from the [BuzzFeed] article — that’s how they saw me.

Fragrance is great, but it’s hard to write or read about because your computer screen isn’t scratch and sniff—also because I can’t talk about base notes or top notes without feeling like a fancy sommelier. I prefer to think of fragrance in terms of anthropology, which is much more fun. Have you ever thought about your personal fragrance history? Well, here’s mine.

 

02

 

And when Wilhelmina reached out to you, how did you feel about going forward with the process?

Basically every single one of my friends in L.A. is a model, with Next or Wilhelmina or whatever it is. I was the non-model in the friend group because I wanted to go to UCLA. I didn’t have that much of an interest — well, I had an interest, but I didn’t think I would be successful so I didn’t really pursue it.

When they asked me to come in, I went with my dad because I was 16. I almost didn’t sign because I was so scared. But I’m happy I ended up signing with them, because they’ve been a really great agency. I had the contract in my room for two days — like, I was scared they were going to tell me to cut my hair or lose weight or something like that, but they’ve been so supportive. They never told me to change anything.

 

Fifth Grade: Tommy Boy

I’m not kidding, I won Tommy Boy after I aced a quiz contest in Sunday School. The ultimate bounty. If you find yourself deep in the attic of my parent’s house, and you pay close attention, you might be able to smell it.

 

Puberty: Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce

Don’t even pretend like you didn’t.

 

College: Kenzo Homme Sport

My college years were timed with the heyday of the Kenzo sweatshirt, so this was a very fancy scent to own. You can now buy it for $30 on Amazon.

 

I can look back at them like a tiny museum of me that smells really good—literally, because I still have them all. But enough about me and how (great) I smell. I want to know your fragrance history—tell me what scents you love and why you love them. Tell me when you wear them, and how you apply them, and why they’re special to you. Tell me everything.
