Playlist - 'Ajuda a descascar as batatas aí!'

Já que toda família reúne todo mundo na cozinha e obriga todo mundo a ajudar a preparar a comida para comemorar a chegada do novo ano, é necessário uma playlist feliz. Deus sabe que você não aguenta mais os funknejos das rádios.
Uma das minhas regras na vida é que se eu não puder cozinhar dançando, que me deixem em paz.
Então aí vai minha playlist para as últimas tarefas domésticas de fim de ano! (Ok talvez seja apenas uma desculpa pra dividir a playlist com vocês, mas eu realmente estarei dançando isso na cozinha daqui a pouco e não me julguem).

Since the whole family gathers in the kitchen and everyone obliges everyone to help prepare the food to celebrate the arrival of the new year, you need a happy playlist. God knows you can not listen anymore the same crap songs on the radio.
O
ne of my rules in life is that if I can not cook dancing, them they need to leave me alone.
So here's my playlist for the latest Housekeeping of the year! (Ok maybe it's just an excuse to share the playlist with you, but I'll really be dancing this in the kitchen, don't judge me!)

maxresdefault51"O porco está tão cru que ainda está cantando 'Hakuna Matata'!"

Start to thank now that your mother is not Chef Ramsay!

A-Pink - No No No

Eu queria não amar essa música, mas no momento em que ela começa tocar…
I wish I didn't love this song, but in the moment it starts playing ...

Rainbow - Tell me, Tell me

~~Hoo hoo hoo hoo, I wanna be, be your love.

Rob Thomas feat. Santana - Smooth

Eu não acho que seja fisicamente possível não dançar essa música quando ela começa tocar e cantar junto. Liberte a latina que existe dentro de você! LOL

I don't think it is physically possible not to sing along and dance to this song when it starts playing. Unleash the Latin that exists within you! LOL

~~You got the kind of lovin that can be so smooth, Give me your heart, make it real! Or else forget about it.~~

San E - The Story of Someone I know

Lazy Look - THe last Monday of 2013!

O ano está acabando, e a última segunda-feira de 2013 está chuvosa e sombria por aqui, tem algo melancólico sobre as ruas vazias do interior no fim do ano e a preguiça é geral, mas ainda sim ninguém quer passar os últimos dias do ano mal vestido, então porque não desfilar por aí confortável e com estilo? O Look Preguiça de hoje é de Tricia Gosingtian das Filipinas, autora do blog Tricia will go Places.

The year is ending, and the last Monday of 2013 is rainy and gloomy here, there's something melancholy about the empty streets of the countryside and laziness is all around, but still nobody wants to end the year all scruffy, so why not parading around comfortable and stylish? The Lazy Look of today is Tricia Gosingtian from Philippines, the author of the blog Tricia will go Places.

Eu amo a camiseta gigante da Minnie Mouse, ou melhor da Minnie Muse XD. A saia de bolinhas é adorável e as meias adicionam um sentimento de conforto no look, mas podem ser dispensadas e ainda manter a aparência adorável do look. E a hairband dá ao look um estilo ousado e único. O look todinho é da Forever 21.

I love the Minnie Mouse oversized shirt, or better the Minnie Muse oversized shirt XD. the polka dots skirt is adorable and the socks with the black shoes adds to the comfy feeling but you can easily let it out and still would be really cute. Still the hairband gives the look a bold and unique style. The whole look is from Forever 21.

Aproveitem o fim de 2013 e os novos desafios que virão em 2014.
Enjoy the end of 2013 and the new challenges that will come in 2014.

Fanfic Review - Damaged by Aquariuslover

I read "Damaged" and I really wanted to share my thoughts about it. I'm a Yunjae Shipper, one of the crazy ones and not ashamed. I read Yunjae fanfics almost everyday, and I swear to God I blame author's like aquariuslover, I blame them for not having yet finished the book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" that are on the corner of my room waiting for me.

778_900

Rating: R
Pairing: Yunjae
Genre: Friendship, Romance, Future AU, Angst
Chapters: 49
Summary: "On a cold winter’s day he cast their love away for the sake of his family. The following autumn an act of vengeance left their love beyond the reaches of forgiveness. Two summers later a fan’s anger and the ultimate act of self-sacrifice would redefine everything they knew about love, pride, selfishness, and forgiveness."

WARNING for SPOILERS.
          I started to read this fanfiction December 27 (11pm) and I finished December 30 (6am), it took me 67 hours only to read all 49 chapters, but that’s how addictive it is.
          Technically is really well written, but maybe because I read it really fast, and even spent all night reading, sometimes I felt like it was dragging, I was bored and I wanted to end, but I couldn’t stop reading and then I stopped for a while, drank a glass of water and it was thrilling again.
          What I missed a little was the dirty details, the sex was a huge part of Jaejoong’s character, it was what he used as a weapon and as a shield too, he thought the only power he had over Yunho was sex. Jaejoong thought without sex he didn’t have Yunho’s heart, so I missed the smut details, at the end it was a little better, but it still lacked.
          DamagedJaejoong reminds of Catherine and Heathcliff of “Wuthering Heights”, the love is the only beautiful thing about them, the only thing that redime them of all their sins. They were too greedy, too angry, too obsessed with revenge, their love was so dysfunctional, that sometimes they seem to hate each other for it. DamagedJaejoong is like this too, he would do everything to have Yunho with him, to the point it gets a little scary sometimes. He cheated, betrayed his best friends, proclaimed his hatred towards a dying man, threatened nurses, and there was a point when he implied that not even God would be capable of keep him away from Yunho. His life was lived for Yunho and Yunho only; he would give up everything and do anything Yunho asked him, to never be abandoned again.
          The problem with Jaejoong’s character is that we didn’t know him before, we know Yunho broke his heart when he followed his father’s wish, but how it was before is not very clear, we know he was jealous and sometimes clingy, but he had dreams and hopes that wasn’t attached to Yunho, because he thought Yunho loved him and then Yunho left him. And even though quariuslover mend DamagedJaejoong in the end, I would still put him in therapy because let’s face it he was a psychotic. Lee So Man said Yunho was the good one and Jaejoong the strong one, the one who would do whatever it takes. It really makes you think, would Jaejoong really shoot Yunho if he knew that would make Yunho be his again? If you think about it, he would, he would hurt Yunho. He did it in another way and he would do this way too, but that only before he really felt what would be to live in a world without Yunho, before the dream, Jaejoong would have shot Yunho, if that meant Yunho would be with him in the end.
          Yunho on the other hand, was too good for his own sake, he wouldn’t step over others, he had to face his father for Jaejoong, but he wouldn’t betray any of his friends or family, he wouldn’t hurt others purposely to be with Jaejoong. But he was the one that made Jaejoong like this, he was so good with everbody, he hurt the person that loved him the most.
          Still I believe a person is responsible for their own actions and what Yunho did with Jaejoong doesn’t justify all the things Jaejoong did. In the end Yunho is the one who mended things, because he was the one who started, and in the end both would live with the fact that Jaejoong was the one who helped to destroy C-JeS and JYJ. I sincerely think Yoochun and Junsu know this, but they are also happy with DBSK reunited so they act blind to not separate them again.
          Changmin is a character that really looks like the YunJae child, he has the sharpness of Jaejoong and isn’t good with the ones who aren’t good to him or to the ones he love, he hurt others purposely if he’s hurt too, but still he didn’t step over innocent others to get the things he want. Right at the beginning we face Changmin’s rage towards Jaejoong, but there is also something in him that wouldn’t deny Yunho loved Jaejoong and that this love was everything and he wouldn’t be in the way of their love.
          Junsu and Yoochun weren’t all that great persons, they feed on Jaejoong’s hate, they benefit from him once, but they saw what have they done and regretted, but they had to lose everything first.
          Heechul and Yunho’s catheter are the comic relief in the fic, and I’m really grateful for them, or I would have drowned on a pool of tears.
          And we forget the meaning behind Ryeowook and Kyuhyun characters; they are the example of what Yunho and Jaejoong could have been, with the easy couple dramas and balanced love. Maybe that was how Yunho and Jaejoong were before Yunho broke Jaejoong’s heart. And they are also the ones who would have their lives more easy because Yunho and Jaejoong came out of the closet.
          About Lee So Man, the fact aquariuslover could make me feel sympathy for the man is impressive, I really blame SMent for everything that happened to DBSK in reality, so I started the fic sure I would hate the man. But in the end somehow I feel like Yunho’s kindness and YunJae’s love touched the evil man’s heart, he admired Yunho and he also admired Jaejoong. In the end he protected both by giving everything to Yunho, he know it would be easier to Yunho to be with Jaejoong if he was a powerful man, and he knew Jaejoong would protect him no matter what, he would know how to be cautions and not to trust everyone and he knew that this way he's most amazing creation, DBSK would be together again. He was an evil genius!
          Maggie was also touched by their love, she was freed when she helped with the house, the house was her torment, she lived happy moments in that place at the expense of the happiness of others and then she spent a lifetime paying for it, when Jaejoong bought the house she finally broke free .
          Chapter 48 I swear to God it was hell, for a moment I thought I was in a big conspiracy to read a tragic fanfic without knowing it, but Jaejoong and Yunho needed that, Jaejoong especially had to know how much by hurting Yunho would hurt himself, how much Yunho’s dead would hurt everyone, and how much Yunho loved him, to the point awoke from certain death because of the fear Jaejoong would take his own life.
          Yunho’s father was the true villain on the story, he was greedy, and had too much proud, his homophobic roots and fear of the public reaction made him demand his son give up the love of his life, in a bigger picture you can see how much family support is important, homosexuals from all around the world kill themselves or suffer their whole life because the family can’t be supportive. And this is so unfair, all they needed was love. Jaejoong and Yunho would never had hurt themselves and hurt others if they were allowed to love freely. In the end when their friends was on the stage or in standing ovation to supporting them, while Yunho proclaim his love and gratitude for Jaejoong, and Jaejoong finally lost all of his insecurities, that was perfect and that was right, they knew it would be hell with the public opinion, but  they had those people who loved them no matter what and so it was okay.

Favorite quotes:

"The moment you take your last breath I am already dead."
"It’s just how I am. I breathe, I have great hair, and I want you."
I think you can love somebody too much…that the Gods become jealous (This one is too close for comfort, my parents had the greatest love of all, my mother also spend years with my father from hospital to hospital, from one doctor to another, and she never once left him, their love was something I never saw, not even in books, but at the end mom couldn’t save him. It was beyond our hands, sometimes I think they loved each other too much and the Gods were jealous.)
I am thinking about getting a tattoo that says, ‘Yunho loves me best'."  (Jae should really have this tattoo!)
“For something that showed me no interest for months it sure does like me now.”
“That’s easy for you to say. You are not about to hand the love of your life over to the devil.”
"If you’re going to be like this lets go announce it to the world right now. We can wear matching rainbow suits." (In my wildest fangirl dreams I ride the unicorn right behind them in support! LOL)
“But most importantly, I must apologize to Jae, one of my oldest and dearest. I have known you for many years, but I haven’t always understood you. I know I have made things extremely difficult for you at times, and pushed you pass your limits. I haven’t always appreciated you as much as I should have. I have put my own pride and others before you, and that is a mark on my soul that will not wash away easily. Jae, I can’t tell you how…sorry I am.” (And at this moment I swear we all run up to that stage and kissed Yunho together!)
“It’s about to get good, brothers” (Oh mighty president!!!)
END OF SPOILERS!

I absolutely recommend “Damaged”, is not my favorite, but it is thrilling, romantic, well written, has an awesome plot, and every character is developed really well.

Aquariuslover has a song on the end of every chapter, but I have my own playlist to read and there was two songs that really made me cry a river reading "Damaged"!

But the song everyone who read "Damaged" will always remember looking at Yunho is "Holding Out For a Hero" by Bonnie Tyler. 

If you want to read “Damaged” by aquariuslover you can find it on her Livejournal HERE.

This is just an opinion about the whole story and I really would love it if you share your thoughts about "Damaged" on the comments too, I read the story so fast and I might not have noticed and appreciated a few important details. =D

Decor - Natal Sem Neve

No Brasil por mais que a gente se engane com as roupas pesadas de Papai Noel de Shopping, o chão forrado em papel branco e algodão, todo o isopor picado e as pinhas espalhadas por aí, nosso Natal sempre acaba em calor, praia/piscina e frutas tropicais. O Eggnog é substituído pelas batidinhas e caipirinhas geladas e os famosos sweaters com estampas natalinas dão lugar a shorts, vestidos levinhos e biquinis minúsculos!

Então por que não abraçar os Natais no litoral, sob um calor escaldante, com decorações tipicamente praianas e tropicais? Só porque aqui não neva não significa que o Natal não possa ser mágico e ainda sim real!

Slide1Slide2Slide3Slide4Apresentação1Fontes: Matgoz - Nautical Cottage - RshCatalog - Shorely Chic - Coastal Style - Google Images

E nesse clima Natalino e alegre é mas do que necessário terminar com a minha música natalina favorita desse ano!

E lembra-se cada um tem sua crença, seja Feliz Natal, Feliz Hanukkah/Chanucá, Feliz Kwanzaa ou simplesmente um Divirta-se, o feriado é para todos!

Brigadeiro com Pipoca - Reign (Review e Figurino)

Quem aí já assistiu ou ouvir falar da nova série da CW, REIGN? Eu li sobre ela no Depois dos Quinze e como uma grande apaixonada por histórias de época corri conferir. Assisti todos os episódios que saíram até agora, mas sinceramente não sei dizer se gosto ou não. É uma daquelas séries que objetivamente você sabe que não é boa, mas que vicia e não dá pra parar de assistir porque ela promete que vai chegar em algum lugar.

Who out there has seen or hear about the new CW serie, REIGN? I read about it on the blog Depois dos Quinze and as someone who loves stories about the past centuries, I went to check. I watched all the episodes that came out so far, but honestly I can't tell if I like it or not. It's one of those series that objectively you know is not good but it is addictive and you can't stop watching because it promises it will get somewhere.

Sinopse: REIGN conta a história de Mary Stuart, Rainha da Escócia, começando em 1557 com os anos em que viveu na França como noiva prometida do Príncipe Francis, futuro rei da França. Mary, acompanhada de suas 4 amigas e damas de companhia, tem o dever de garantir que seu casamento mantenha a segurança de seu povo na Escócia, enquanto enfrenta a pressão política, forças ocultas e seus sentimentos divididos entre seu noivo e o irmão bastardo de Francis.

Synopsis: REIGN tells the story of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, starting in 1557 with the years she lived in France as the promised bride of Prince Francis, future king of France. Mary, accompanied by her 4 friends, have a duty to ensure that her wedding guarantees the safety of Scotland, while facing political pressure, occult forces and her torn feelings between her Prince and his bastard brother.

REIGN

Os elementos de fantasia em REIGN são um pouco aleatórios, a história em si não é muito fiel a verdadeira história de Maria da Escócia, a trama política não é bem desenvolvida e as vezes a atuação deixa um pouco a desejar, não dá pra esperar muito da série, está longe de ser uma superprodução como as de Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead ou Falling Skies, por exemplo. Não é segredo que (geralmente, mas com boas exceções) as séries da CW tem foco em triângulos amorosos e um público mais teen. Mas ainda sim continuarei assistindo pra ver onde vai chegar à trama, já que muitos personagens tem potencial pra ser explorado, e eu estou muito curiosa sobre o povo que vive na floresta e o destino de Francis.

The elements of fantasy in REIGN are a bit random, the story itself isn't very faithful to the true story of Mary of Scotland, the political plot isn't well developed and sometimes the acting is not THAT great. You can't expect a lot of this serie, REIGN is far from a high budget production like Game Of Thrones, The Walking Dead or Falling Skies, for example. It is no secret that (generally, but with good exceptions) the CW series focuses on love triangles and have a more teen audience. But still I will keep watching to see where it will get, since many characters have the potential to be exploited, and I am very curious about the people who live in the forest and the fate of Francis.

Personagens/Characters

Francis (Toby Regbo): Futuro Rei da França, Francis é um jovem honrado e bondoso que apesar de nutrir sentimentos por Mary, deixa claro que só se casará com alguém que beneficie seu povo. Ele é basicamente o Príncipe encantado, mas faz muita falta nele um charme de lobo mal.

Sebastian/Bash (Torrance Coombs): O filho bastardo do Rei Henry com sua amante Diane de Poitiers. Por generosidade e amor do irmão e protegido pelo pai, Bash é permitido estar dentro da corte, e apesar de se importar com o irmão, Bash se vê dentro de uma trama obscura com sua mãe, enquanto luta pelo amor de Mary.

Francis (Toby Regbo): Future King of France, Francis is a young, kind and honored man that despite of nurturing feelings for Mary, makes it clear that he will only marry someone that benefits his people. He is basically the enchanted Prince, but is sorely lacking the charm of a big bad wolf.

By generosity and love of his brother and protected by his father, Bash is allowed to be within the court, despite caring for his brother Francis, Bash end up in the dark plans of his mother to stole the throne from Francis, while fighting for Mary's love.

THE CW UPFRONTS 2013

Nostradamus (Rossif Sutherland): Praticamente todos já ouviram falar de Nostradamus, na série ele é o cara misterioso, que vê coisas e reporta a rainha da França, é Nostradamus que diz a Catherine que Francis morrerá por causa de Mary, é ele também o médico da realeza.

Catherine de'Medici (Megan Follows): Queen of France and Francis mother, Catherine is a ruthless woman whose priority is to protect her child above all.

Diane de Poitiers (Anna Walton): The King's mistress and mother of Bash, Diane is a mysterious and manipulative woman who wants the throne for her son. To get the crown Diane engages with hidden forces of the forest.

Nostradamus (Rossif Sutherland): Almost everyone has heard of Nostradamus before, in the series he is the mysterious guy who sees the future and reports to the queen of France, Nostradamus is the one who says to Catherine that Francis will die because of his union with Mary and he is also the royal doctor.

b045f058127741c4-rnx37

Aylee (Jenessa Grant): Em todos os episódios até agora Aylee quase não falou, e quando deram ênfase pra ela foi pra mostrar que ela é cleptomaníaca e então….bom não posso dar spoilers não é?.

Lola (Anna Popplewell): Amiga de Mary, Lola é uma romântica e inteligente garota, que sempre perde os caras que gosta por causa da Mary....não, eu estou sendo má, não é bem assim.....é exatamente assim.

Greer (Celina Sinden): Os pais de Greer mandaram ela junto com Mary para que a moça casasse com um rapaz nobre e rico, então Greer foi lá e fez exatamente o contrário se apaixonando pelo carismático cozinheiro do castelo. (Ela é a minha preferida entre as 4 amigas)

Keena (Caitlin Stasey): Toda mulher tem uma amiga promíscua. Keena é a representação absoluta dessa amiga.

Aylee (Jenessa Grant): In every episode so far Aylee hardly spoke, and she was only emphasized to show she is a kleptomaniac and to be blackmailed by Catherine, and then .... well I can not give spoilers, can I?

Lola (Anna Popplewell): She is a romantic and intelligent girl who always loses the guys she likes because of Mary .... no, I'm being mean, it's not like that ..... it's exactly like that.

Greer (Celina Sinden): Greer's parents sent her along with Mary so that she could marry a noble and rich man, so Greer was there and did exactly the opposite by falling in love with the charismatic cook of the castle. (She is my favorite among the 4 friends)

Keena (Caitlin Stasey): Every woman has a promiscuous and kind of stupid friend. Keena is the absolute representation of that friend.

clarissa-reign

Clarissa (Katie Boland): Nós nunca vimos o rosto dela, nem sabemos quais são suas intenções, só temos certeza que ela é assustadora, vive escondida no castelo, às vezes dorme embaixo da cama da Mary com um saco na cabeça e é ela que ajuda a resolver todas as merdas que acontecem na corte.

Clarissa (Katie Boland): We've never seen her face, or know what her intentions are, we're only certain that she's scary, she lives hidden in the castle, sometimes sleeping under Mary's bed with a bag over her head and that she helps to solve all the shit that happens in court.

O FIGURINO/THE COSTUMES

Reign

O que eu realmente amo na série é o figurino, que também não é lá muito fiel ao período, ok, não é nada fiel ao período, NEM UM POUQUINHO, já que decotes generosos, transparências e cabelos ao vento são comuns na série e não eram nem um pouco comuns na época.

What I really love about the show are the costumes, which is also not very faithful to the period, ok, it's not true to the period at all, since low necklines, a lot of transparencies and hair blowing in the wind are a common thing in the serie and were not even a little bit common at the time.

Apresentação1Isso é o mais próximo que a série chegou de realmente retratar um dos trajes daquela época.
This is the closest the series has come to really portray one of the costumes of that time.

content_pic (18)Screenshot2013-11-16at100542AM_zpsada8b40e

O figurino da série é na verdade um desfile de alta-costura, com vestidos longos de festa e muitos acessórios, com peças que lembram a antiga nobreza europeia, ou melhor, como nós imaginamos a nobreza antes de fazer pesquisas aprofundadas sobre os trajes e culturas da época.

The costumes are actually a parade of couture and long party dresses and many accessories with pieces that resemble the ancient European nobility, or rather, as we imagine the nobility before doing a thorough research on the costumes and cultures of that period.

Slide1

Os penteados são adoráveis e eu frequentemente quero copiá-los, com tranças, ondas naturais, headbands e tiaras, eles são sempre lindos e românticos e de algum modo combinam perfeitamente com as tendências atuais.

The hairstyles are lovely and I often want to copy them. With braids, natural curls, headbands and tiaras, they are always beautiful and romantic and somehow blend perfectly with the current trends.

FTW - Midi Skirts

Com uma inspiração vintage trazida dos anos 50 e uma moderna releitura, as midi skirts são uma tendência mundial de moda em 2013. Adoro minissaias, mas confesso que estou apaixonada por essa tendência lindíssima!

With a vintage inspiration brought from the 50's and a modern retelling, the midi skirts are a global fashion trend in 2013. I really like miniskirts, but I confess I'm in love with this beautiful trend!

O comprimento midi, basicamente é no meio da panturrilha, variando entre o tornozelo e logo abaixo do joelho. Apesar de não ser tão ingrata com as baixinhas quanto as maxi skirts, as saias midi ainda são complicadas de usar se você não tem pelo menos 1,70m de altura, mas basta seguir alguns truques se você não gostar de parecer ainda mais baixinha.

The midi length is basically in the middle-calf, ranging between the ankle and right below the knee. Although not so ungrateful with the short girls as the maxi skirts, they are still complicated to use if you aren't at least 1.70m tall, but just follow some tricks if you don't like to look even more petite.

Dicas:
1) Se você é baixinha, dê preferência aos sapatos nudes, eles darão a ilusão de pernas mais longas;
2) Saias midi devem sempre ter cós alto pra alongar a sillhueta;
3) Prefira as midis mais próximas ao joelho do que ao tornozelo;
4) Se quiser disfarçar alguns quilinhos a mais dê preferência aos modelos flare (mais soltinhas) que podem ajudar a marcar a cintura e dar um formato de ampulheta ao seu corpo;
5) As magrinhas podem abusar dos modelos lápis, mas cuidado se seus ombros forem mais largos que os quadris. Se tiver os ombros largos demais dê preferência a modelos de saia com cores mais fortes e tops mais escuros;
6) Cropped tops, camisas amarradinhas e jaquetas curtinhas combinam super bem com esse comprimento.

Tips:
1) If you are petite, give preference to nude shoes, they give the illusion of longer legs;
2) Midi skirts should always have high waistband to elongate the silhouette;
3) Give preference to the lengths more closer to the knee than the ankle;
4) If you want to hide a few extra pounds choose the flare designs that can help to mark your waist and give a hourglass shape to your body;
5) The leaner women can abuse the pencil designs, but beware if your shoulders are wider than your hips. If you have broad shoulders you can use skirts with brighter colors and then darker tops;
6) Cropped tops, tied shirts and short jackets match very well with this length.

Eu amo essa tendência porque me lembra pin ups e eu AMO pin ups!

I love this trend because it reminds me of pin up girls and I LOVE pin ups!

Eu não resisti a essa tendência e como uma entusiasta da cultura asiática, filmes da disney e flores de cerejeira, criei o meu look dos sonhos.

I couldn't resist this trend and as an enthusiast of Asian culture, disney movies and cherry blossoms, I created my dream look.

aaaaa"A flor que desabrocha na adversidade é mais rara e bela de todas."

E claro que não poderia terminar de outro jeito…

And of course I could not end any other way...

Obs. E se você não acha que Mulan é a melhor de todas…
P.S. And if you don't think Mulan is the BEST of all…
