This blog contains my random reflections, usually on topics like spirituality, consciousness & wisdom, personal growth, feminism, or even fashion and beauty. The one word that can connect this blog is probably minimalism. A value I’ve started to live by about a few years ago, realizing it removed the feeling of chaos from my life. I believe being a minimalist is being aware of how some things are just things, while other things can actually give you time, comfort or tranquility.
I live in my dear, sunny city of Lisbon, Portugal where I was born, raised and where I’ll probably be buried. Besides maybe too many good memories attached, there are a bunch of good reasons to live here. I mean, Madonna lives here.
I tend to be a shy and quiet person, but also have tendencies to be eccentric and full of energy. Regardless, I’m a deep thinker who firmly believes in a number of causes.
I don’t care too much for social norms or standards and tend to do things my own way. One of my pet peeves is when people try to constrain or limit me, since I crave freedom and independence. I can appear cold or insensitive, but I have a deep, genuine concern for humanity.
I have a talent for exploiting my creative imagination and I love to write down my thoughts and reflect on random ideas. Hence, this blog. Besides writing here, I’m a Product Designer at Automattic and I design WordPress themes. I curate fashion, design and art, and I sing and make music when I’m at the peak of my inspiration.
