What I’ve been up to lately, tidbits of my existence – July 2014

I had a very intense July. Great but really tiring. I’m not gonna mention everything that happened or post a really long text about it – I will be writing some posts on things that happened -, instead I’m going to let photos tell the story. =)

Went on a shopping spree at the "American store". Glood, I love ya!

I had to. Coffee-mate, even though it wasn't this flavor, was something I put in my coffee almost every day that I spent with my sister in the US. Just smelling it brought me back...

And obviously, the toasted english muffin with cream cheese. A must. And I forked it open, yes. :P

I brought home a bit of peppermint home and I'm giving "apartment gardening" another try.

Somehow, I received this L.L. Bean catalog in the mail. Seriously, I was a freak opening it. Took it as a sign. That the US has not forgotten me ;) eheh

When on a sale shopping spree to Primark and Kiko. Will be posting some more about this. Some of the above are great, some aren't.

We've been having a lot of water outages. We live in a real old neighborhood and the water pipes brake easily. This was one of those 5+ times that it happened in July. The water was so strong that it made a hole below my neighbor's car.

Luckily, with some shovel work and expertise, the car was unharmed. We were without water for 4 hours. :\

When we travelled to Fundão for my nephew's birthday, I had to do my makeup in the car (we went straight to the party). I hadn't done that in a while but it turned out well. Will post about my current makeup must-haves.

This was probably the most important event in the month. I was a volunteer at the International ISAAC Conference and my mind kept being blown! Seriously! Will write a post on it.

Even more cleaning/organizing, living room edition. We basically took everything out of the cabinets and moved all the furniture around. We do have lots of things, but 80% are my grandma's (we live in her house, even though she lives with my parents).

It was a huge undertaking, but it was totally worth it. The living room looks pretty and huge right now. =)
