One year of Brigadeiro!


One year ago I decided to have a go at creating my own blog, to share my love for what I find beautiful....

I am so glad I did!

Pic from flickr of brigadeiros

I wanted to thank you all who have dropped by (especially to those who have said hello) in the past year, I have had so much fun here, 'met' so many amazing people, and have had the chance to share what I love and/or find beauty in...


I did this in a previous post, but thought I'd do this again, as I thoroughly enjoyed reading your answers last time (for those who have previously answered, please feel free to answer again, have added a few extra Q's):

I'd love to find out more about YOU:

1. How did you first arrive on my blog? Como achou meu blog?

2. Who are your favourite designers? Quem sao seus estilistas favoritos?

3. How old are you (if you don't mind my asking)? Quantos anos tem?

4. Are you studying/working? If so, in what? Trabalhas ou estudas (em que area?)

5. What country are you from? De que pais es?

6. What would you like to see more of on this blog? De que gostaria de ver mais aqui?

7. How would you describe your style? Como retrataria seu estilo?

8. What was the last thing you bought? Qual foi sua ultima compra?

9. Oops. Repeat question, sorry guys!

10. What are your favourite foods? Quais sao suas comidas favoritas?

11.What are your fashion dislikes? Que moda nao gostas?

12. What is your favourite vacation spot? Qual e seu local favorito para ferias?

13. What are your favourite pair of shoes? Quais sao seus sapatos preferidos?

14. What is your favourite piece of clothing? Qual e sua roupa favorita?

15. What is on your wish-list?

Have fun! I look forward to getting to know more about you!

Any questions you would like to ask?

  1. 1. Rummaging through other blogs I found yours and decided to follow it!

    2. My favourite designer is probably Yves Saint Laurent, but there's a lot of space in my heart for many others.

    11. Tight pants and tight top altogether.

    12. I'd like to be in a city that is not far from a beach, so that I could switch air quickly.

    13. Gorgeous flats (problematic Achilles heel won't let me wear heels)

    14. Pants that don't leave the booty showing when I sit <- hard to find those, nowadays, and I wonder why, it's such an easy modification to make to a basic pant pattern...

    15. Jewelery, big, bold and silver.

    As for my question, could you tell me a little about every place you've lived in and which one is the place you feel happier in?

    Thank you! Love your blog! *

  8. congratulations!!!, big questionary... I'll answer to the first, I found your blog by chance, just surfing the internet! apart from that, I found your blog really refreshing and down to earth... some bloggers try to hard to impress with their outfits but you keep it to yourself, with your own style, that's always classy and chic...that's what I like. by the way, I also love your collection of dries van noten! (one of my favourites)
    big hug!

    7. classic with an edge/modern classic. with a touch of fabulousity.

  22. Happy Blog Anniversary Brig! I think this is the first time I'm posting a comment on your blog so I'll introduce myself via the questionnaire hehe

    1. Vogue! A link in your signature. (I'm beautifulSoul *waves*)

    2. This changes from time to time but for now I'll say, Dries Van Noten, Chloe, Lanvin and Phillip Lim

    3. 24. Etching towards "mid twenties"

    4. Working in finance.

    5. Australia

    6. I adore your posts about food, so I'd like to see more food posts! Oh and travel. You have lived on almost every continent, I think you could write loads on travel!

    7. Feminine with a hint of sexy? lol Sounds lame!

    8. A Phillip Lim dress.

    9. As above? About to purchase a Preen Line dress.

    10. I *heart* eating. My favourite cuisine would have to be french.

    11. S&B rats or those AA shiny leggings.

    12. J'Adore Pareee!

    13. CL NVP's. (yes, typical hehe)

    15. A Balenciaga!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Congratulations! I couldn't imagine reaching a whole year of writing one blog...patience is a virtue. As for your questionnaire, my time is limited but I'll answer a few questions! I'm 20, Chinese-born Australian, live in good ol' Perth, studying Law and Fine Arts, love my Antwerp designers and also Preen, Comme des Garcons/Yohji, Camilla Skovgaard, etc. There is no way I can pick just ONE pair of shoes...maybe the MMM nail heels but that is my most recent purchase, and I'd like to see more outfit posts! With an amazing wardrobe like that I always wonder how you'd put outfits together on a daily basis.

    Sorry for violating the questionnaire format...your blog is one of my favourites, keep up the good work and here's to another year!

  25. 1. To be honest.. I can't remember! Either you commented on mine first, which seems like too great an honor, or I found yours through a friends. If so, I'm so glad I did.

    2. I actually have yet to make up my mind on that one. When it comes to both brands I can purchase and those out of my price range, I still just love lots of different things.

    3. I'll be seventeen in October. Sadly, I'm still so young and I lack a lot of experience in the world.

    4. I'm currently in the American School in London and I just entered my Junior year. I've only just been given my schedule and I still have things to work out. I'm doing a range of subjects from Russian Literature to Japanese level two to AP US History.

    5. Originally I'm from Lebanon with a little bit of other things mixed in like Greek and Albanian and mainly different parts of the Middle East, but mostly Lebanese. I was born in London, though, and have lived there my entire life.

    6. The things you wear. You have such a beautiful style, and you're such a beautiful person.

    7. Hmmm. I suppose a few things! I like to change it up.. So occasionally I might go to school wearing a pretty frilly dress and the next day I'll be wearing all black and looking like I'm a rebellious teenager who just ran away from home on her motorbike.

    8. Ah! Three pairs of shoes from Office. So excited! But it's been a few days.. Where are my precious shoes?

    10. Mmm. Sushi! Or anything Lebanese. But it really depends. It's mainly Sushi but I absolutely love a lot of other Japanese things.. Like Takoyaki! I'm also a huge fan of Italian.. Can't resist good pasta. Ahhh It's Ramadan so this question almost made me drool.

    11. When people go all out and just dress head-to-toe in ONE type of thing. I can't stand it. It looks ugly. And it's difficult to look at. And while I do appreciate a different colour and some quirkiness, I one time went to school and saw a girl wear fluorescent lime green tights along with a bright pink dress and a very shiny hat. Hurt my eyes. I hate it when people's clothes hurt my eyes. Stand out but not to the point of pain.

    12. Ooh! Lebanon, for sure. Have you ever been? It's a wonderful place. Like... You will go to certain areas, and you can see a building that looks completely new and beautiful, but right next to it you'll find a building with bullet holes from the war. It's such an amazing contrast!

    13. They WOULD be this pair of ankle boots I just bought from Office.. But unfortunately.. I have yet to wear them.

    14. Oh! My leotard and my black skirt. I love anything that slims down my body really. Both of those are extremely bodycon and make me feel much better about myself when I wear them.

    15. Something with leopard print preferably. A red (dark crimson) or white fur coat (faux would be best! Or at least second hand real fur... It's already been done).

    Ah, that was fun!

    And yeah! I believe on her page she listed her occupation as a model.

  26. 1. How did you first arrive on my blog?

    2. chanel, lanvin, alexander wang, 3.1 phillip lim, doo.ri, gaspard yurkievich

    3. 27

    4. working @ the dept of health

    5. adelaide, australia

    6. everything about this blog is fabulous, it is in my favourites under garance!

    7. mmm. i like suit jackets, sack dresses, tights and platform heels. i also love cons and cardigans and statement costume jewellery. i desire more designer labels than i actually have, but i believe it's all about how you put an outfit together rather than being completely covered in labels.

    8. three pairs of peg leg work pants! that's not interesting at all :) but the last most interesting purchase was a vintage lanvin dress from ebay.

    10. delicious thai, decent chinese [i'm picky cause of my heritage] and good italian.

    11.jean leggings, girls not wearing heels when they go out anymore [like put some effort in ladies], the bogan/trash/druggie shirt look that seems to be around of late.

    12. since i've just come back, new york city, everyone has their own identity and style, its so refreshing. and also hamilton island for the resort holiday. and also melbourne because it's just that little bit bigger and different and more interesting than adelaide.

    13. i don't have any now that would be my ultimate favourite. i'm in dire need!

    14. my black and white striped silk zara suit jacket from london.

    15. new fabulous shoes, more more more. please, thanks :)

    8. follow the cage shoes... I bought two pairs for Miu Miu and YSL cage flats. So adorable. I love flats...
    9. :)
    10. I'm very open about food, but I must say pastas, pizza and everything from the sea.
    11. white bags and shoes
    12. Paris, Athens and its islands and of course any place in my beautiful country.

Found your blog via Vogue and I adore your taste in clothes and food - can we possibly see your interior design choices.... would love to see your decor and where your shoes and clothes live. Keep up the great work I stop by daily with delight.

  40. Ah! I am thoroughly enjoying reading all your answers and the questions some of you have asked, I hope to answer the ones I can in the one post...

    mercado: Ah! You sound like my little sister! I am utterly hopeless with my hair (she boils it down to laziness, I think it's that mixed with cluelessness, haha), and makeup as well, the most 'out there' I get is 'smoky eyes'...but will try, at least once ;)

    Anonymous: have been thinking of an 'interior design' post in the back of my mind, so will definitely work on one ;)

  48. Congrats on your blogaversary! It's been fun reading your posts, and here's to many more.

    And here comes the answers to your questions:

    1. How did you first arrive on my blog?

    Through StyleDiary

    2. Who are your favourite designers?

    Hard to name particulars, since I like a lot of different independent designers, but Rick Owens, Martin Margiela, Band of Outsiders are a few of the ones I like the most at the moment.


    3. How old are you (if you don't mind my asking)?

    I'll pass on this one =)

    4. Are you studying/working? If so, in what?

    Currently working as a litigator.

    5. What country are you from?

    U.S. of A.

    6. What would you like to see more of on this blog?

    Hard to say...I really like how your blog is, and I'm sure it'll take a natural trajectory. I think I'd like to see remixes of certain pieces.

    7. How would you describe your style?

    Professional and sleek but with a hint of edge/subversiveness...a little bit of a rebel in the establishment, if you will.

    8. What was the last thing you bought?

    The last thing I bought hasn't been shipped yet. I got 2 pairs of House of Holland tights--the alphabet one and the grayscale colorblock one.


    9. Oops. Repeat question, sorry guys!

    (That's OK!)

    10. What are your favourite foods?

    I like a little bit of everything. Indian food is always good.

    11.What are your fashion dislikes?

    Leggings worn as pants, without something else long enough to cover up the rear end (though I was almost guilty of that once).

    12. What is your favourite vacation spot?

    Washington D.C. in the Spring. So much to see and do there.

    13. What are your favourite pair of shoes?

    My Givenchy wooden sandals with a straw-woven t-strap front. Those were my first expensive pair of shoes that I got as a treat when I was no longer on a student budget. I wore them all the time then, and I still wear them all the time now.

    14. What is your favourite piece of clothing?

    Probably my grayish-purple Forever 21 cropped fleece bomber that I found on sale for $5--hands-down the most versatile, stylish, and well-fitted piece I own.

    15. What is on your wish-list?

    For now, just a Rick Owens asymmetric drapey cardigan for the Fall. Pretty sure I won't be able to find an affordable one, though.

    6. What would you like to see more of on this blog?
    Cool local finds!

    Constantly changing. When I was working full time and had an income, it was a little more thought-out, but now I am collecting funny things from my travels, like a rainbow coloured dress from Santorini, and a French navy longsleeve top from a surplus store in Normandy.

    8. What was the last thing you bought?
    Fashionwise, some almost-harem pants in Spain. They are fitted at the top but baggy in the leg and elasticised at the cuff. And they have a lovely tie waist!

    Cheese. French cheese.

    Animal print. Sorry, but I can't stand it! And showing off too much skin at the same time.

    12. What is your favourite vacation spot?
    Spain has been great so far! But Santorini was VERY relaxing.

    13. What are your favourite pair of shoes?
    It was a pair of stilletos from Nine West that are absolutely trashed. I am ashamed to wear them but I can't find a replacement. Now it is my Havianas, because it's so hot and they're so comfy!

    14. What is your favourite piece of clothing?
    Now that's hard, different favourites for different occasions. I have a gold, A-line strapless dress that I love for a night out, but right now it's these new harem pants, super comfy!

    15. What is on your wish-list?
    A ring I saw in Montemarte in Paris, a little silver heart on a thin band in some store under the Sacre Coeur.


    PS: CC is as lovely in real life as she appears here. :)

  51. 1. How did you first arrive on my blog? Como achou meu blog?

    Hmm...At this point, I am entirely unsure. But I probably clicked on a link from another blog I read.

    2. Who are your favourite designers? Quem sao seus estilistas favoritos?
    I like class, clean lines and will look for that in many brands. But, I love Chanel suits, Burberry and Alexander Wang's t-shirts.

    3. How old are you (if you don't mind my asking)? Quantos anos tem?
    I will be 27 in just under 6 weeks!

    4. Are you studying/working? If so, in what? Trabalhas ou estudas (em que area?)
    I am doing both. I am in my last year of law school and I am working part-time in a law firm.

    5. What country are you from? De que pais es?
    I am from the United States, Alaska in particular.

    6. What would you like to see more of on this blog? De que gostaria de ver mais aqui?
    I love the outfit posts, and I think you really do a great job.

    7. How would you describe your style? Como retrataria seu estilo?
    I am very much classic, with a rough edge - I like outfits that are sophisticated, but with something out of place or unpolished.

    8. What was the last thing you bought? Qual foi sua ultima compra?
    It has been a long shopping dry spell, and the last thing I bought was a dark grey skirt suit. Not too exciting.

    9. Oops. Repeat question, sorry guys!

    10. What are your favourite foods? Quais sao suas comidas favoritas?
    I loooove food. All kinds. I love brunch food - french toast, etc... - and Vietnamese hoagie sandwiches, Thai pad see ew, ice cream, barbecue ribs, etc...really everything except for mushrooms and organ meat.

    11.What are your fashion dislikes? Que moda nao gostas?
    Almost every time I decide I hate a particular trend, I see someone do it incredibly well and I have to re-think my hatred. So, mostly I just dislike when people let clothes wear them instead of the other way around. I can't pull off crazy outfits, so I go with understated clothes and rock them in a way that I could never do with wild/loud outfits.

    12. What is your favourite vacation spot? Qual e seu local favorito para ferias?
    Probably my home, Alaska. I love to go hiking and find a secluded, beautiful spot and just take in my surroundings. But my husband and I have fun wherever we go.

    13. What are your favourite pair of shoes? Quais sao seus sapatos preferidos?
    I love this blue suede pair of flats with a gold buckle on the toes. So comfy and great with casual outfits.

    14. What is your favourite piece of clothing? Qual e sua roupa favorita?
    Hard to say, I love my black blazer that goes with everything. I also am always throwing on my long Banana Republic cardigan. It's not high fashion, but it's very me.

    15. What is on your wish-list?
    Clothes for autumn. The air is getting crisp here and I want new, knee-high, flat boots, scarves and layering tops.

    Great Post - I loved reading everyone's answers!
