Shreded Mariah

Better than a reading a good review is reading a review that completely shreds to pieces a music album, in this case, Mariah Carey’s “Memoirs of an Imperfect Angel”, but written in such a way that it transpires intelligence, eloquence and an almost perfect use of the English language.

Quero o Calippo Cola!!!

Também sentem falta do Calippo Cola? Era óptimo sentir o pegajoso da cola na boca, lábios e bochechas depois tentar beber/trincar um Calippo Cola.

A OLÁ está a fazer uma petição on-line e quem estiver interessado em trazer o Calippo Cola de volta apenas tem de assinar a petição aqui.
Notícia aqui, da TIME OUT LISBOA.

"Photographer Howard Schatz had an idea: place actors in a series of roles and dramatic situations to reveal the essence of their characters. Such was the premise behind his book, In Character: Actors Acting, which captures some of Hollywood’s most emotive stars in the act of, well, making faces. Luckily for us, he continued the tradition for the pages of Vanity Fair. Here are some of the best. "

The New October

For many years, September was, to me, synonym with going back to school and studying and October was synonym with weather. I’ll explain.

During September you could still wear some of the clothes you used during the summer and you didn’t need coats or sweater, for that matter. The idea alone would make you shriek.

But this year, especially because I didn’t have a vacation or and no longer studying, September is the new October.

Earlier this week the weather became cooler. The days are warm(ish), and the evenings are a little bit chilly, which means you have to take a sweater or a coat with you when you go out. I somehow feel we are already in October.

Also, it is the time when you wake up in the middle of the night a little bit cold and pull out a blanket from your closet and cover yourself up in bed. And I love it! I love feeling the comforting weight of the blanket, the crispness of the sheets… I feel comfortable and comforted.

I know it may sound strange, but hey… though luck!
