My life in pics #3

instagramWe’ve been waiting a long time for the summer. But of course, like it is supposed to do, it arrived.

I’ve been working very hard the last couple of weeks before the summer holiday started. But everything is done and I’m loving some free time. Time to dedicate to my blog and other future plans.

I’ve been to Germany a couple of days to meet up with my friends from Brasil. It was a lot of fun and I loved my time there.

Take a look with me!

Happy Birthday to me!

Bday

Yay! Today is my 28th birthday!

I already celebrated my birthday a little this weekend. My parents, sister, grandfather and one of my friends came over for cake and dinner. My boyfriend isn’t home so my birthday celebration is spread out over a couple of weeks!

But I do have a great party tonight. I’m going to Gilberto Gil with my mom and friends. Gilberto Gil is one of the greatest artists from Brasil. Today he is 71 years of age, but he still knows how to rock the stage!

Well, I wish everybody has a great day.

XOXO

15 random facts about me

I always love reading personal blogposts from different bloggers, so I decided to write one myself. I found a great tag the ’15 random questions’ tag!  Hope you like it! Feel free to copy it!

1. What’s a nickname only your family calls you?
As you’ll probably know is Menina my nickname. But there are more! My dad calls me ‘meikie’. Most of my friends call me Maaik. My beloved grandmother used to have some kind of nickname for me too, but I forgot…Unfortunately I can’t ask it anymore.

2. What’s a weird habit of yours?
Not very weird: but I leave my shoes all over the place. They are everywhere. It drives my boyfriend crazy sometimes… I do have a weird habit though, everytime I leave a place (work, home, bar, anywhere) I always need to check my purse: keys, phone, wallet, lipgloss? Everytime! Even when I’m sure my stuff is really in my purse.
